2 Jan. ’42

INTERNED BY JAPS

Fires continue. Lighting current off. Fear of refrigeration. Lights on in two hours and great relief. In the afternoon a committee of Japanese arrived and seized the premises, telling me that I was responsible for all buildings. Asked about Arms and looked in my safe. There was no search or personnel disturbed. Soon after the Japanese departed, garbage near the galley began to explode. Investigation revealed that some hidden ammunition had become ignited, the condition unexplainable. A rifle was throw over our wall apparently to embarrass us. I placed a close patrol along the inner side of the walls to watch for any unexpected happenings. The daily walks were ended. Lights on in the evening. At any rate it’s some relief from the constant air alarm and bombings we have
been experiencing daily.
