Thursday, January 1, 1942

I arrived in Washington on December 14, 1941.

Telephone call from office of Chief of Staff.

I’ve been insisting Far East is critical, and no other side shows should be undertaken until air and ground are in satisfactory state. Instead, we’re taking on MAGNET, CYMNAST, etc. The Chief of Staff told me to pay special attention to the Philippine Islands, Hawaii, Australia, Pacific Islands, China!
