Diary of Warren A. Wilson

December 15, 1944

Still on A.R. status – breakfast not served until about 10:00 AM. At 10:30 had a conference with Mr. Kuboda and repeated to him again at 11:30 including Mr. Schwizer. They want Bldgs. 18 A, and 5 combined in #9. Front office and tailor and cobbler shop to #2. Wds #9 and #14 to #5. The 8 officers remaining in #11 to #10. This was initiated about noon in spite of A.R. and with the Japanese approval, altho for ordinary conditions they
are awkward about people in the compound during A.R. This was reiterated today, that during A.R. there would be no personnel moving in the compound, and then at one bell, only doctors and corps men might leave their quarters for 20 minutes at a time.

The move was partially complete by 5:00 PM but all extra beds, mattreses, etc. must be moved to #13 and the latter must be cleaned first which will take place tomorrow. Needless to say, all Bldgs. occupied by the draft are filthy.
