Dec. 21st – No news – no action –

The Japanese stated today that they might give us some camotes, or more soy bean meal or some gabi to make up for the rice cut – So far they have given us nothing –

We use up our last camp reserves on Xmas – Each person gets 1 3/4 oz jam. 1/2 oz chocolate – Not much, but it helps –

We now are reported to have landed large reinforcements in Mindoro – Everyone expects all Hell to break loose over Xmas, but I think it will be a while before we consolidate our positions on Mindoro –
