February 20, 1942

It was still dark this morning when I hurried to the hospital. Suddenly, I bumped into someone with such force that I nearly lost my balance. The grunts and groans which followed made me realize that I had collided with a Japanese guard.

“Good morning!” I sang out cheerily.

“Ohio!” answered the Jap, followed by a string of unintelligible words that sounded friendly and neighborly.

“Si! Si!” I answered in confusion and made my escape.
