May 7, 1942

Many planes again, all flying low. A few artillery shots. Corregidor pretty definitely has surrendered. Seems like probably some one of the forts is holding out. Rumors from the Japanese say that the Medical Detachment took up arms and fought to the last man on Corregidor. They also make signs that they cut many throats after they took the island. I suppose that would be a natural reaction to any people when finally taking a difficult position. I hope the nurses had somehow been gotten away, but I doubt it. When we see some of the Corregidor bunch we will finally get some world news. Still no change of food, location, weather, or otherwise.
