12 Jan. ’42

Lieutenant Iwasi Shimizu called and took Sgt. Wells to the Philippine General Hospital for two weeks radium treatment. It was arranged over the phone with Dr. Sisson [Sison]. We received no news. Twenty-seven Japanese bombers flew over at low altitude. Whet we thought was distant firing, the Jap say are exploding automobile tires. We say to ourselves, maybe. At three a large number of soldiers and a young Japanese Lieutenant took all of our trucks. I protested particularly for the two ambulances and they left one. Rumors of unrest in the city. Phoned Vargas and was told to call Japanese Consul General. The Japanese Consul promised to send a representative to us tomorrow. The Catholic Sisters are very disturbed. We had a quiet night but all very anxious.
