March 21, 1942

Today, Palm Sunday, we saw an unusual display of tanks and other kinds of war material being transported to the north. Are they preparing a final attack on Bataan? Radio San Francisco announced that General Yamashita, conqueror of Singapore, is directing this campaign.

For the last several days, however, we heard the rumors that General Yamashita was wounded in battle and had died in a Manila hospital. Names of well-known doctors were mentioned as having given General Yamashita blood transfusions. Just rumors.
