Spent New Year at Tamarao Polo Club. Dutch party w/Joe Capucom and wife & Joe Olivares w/ wife. A wonderful party. The big apple dance. Danced w/ C. Sunico. Manolo and brothers very genial. Came home 3:15 am.

Went to Gen. Santos New Year Party 10:00-11:00. A big group of officers showing expansion of Army. Matty Capinpin tells me of Gen. De los Reyes continuing in service to become Chief National Police. This seems to be the result of my recommendation on a Gen. Staff Study on the Nationalization of police.

Papa given confession & extreme unction.

Wound up at Vadors Commanders party.
