Tues. Dec. 9/41

Nothing of importance occurred. We boys did a lot of walking around to see the different friends, and we got news of Japanese attacks on different places like Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. That night we had several air raid warnings. Cecil and I would pile out of bed in a hurry, pull on our trousers, slip on our shoes, and hurry out of the house and look up into the sky to see if we could see any planes. After about three times I got tired and decided to stay in bed, come what may. We did see a bit of anti-aircraft fire for the first time, but not much else. We had a small Gospel Meeting tonight with four men attending. It was pretty hard to preach in the dark. Blackout!
