April 25, 1944 (Tuesday)

Today being Rinji Taisai (Extraordinary Spring Yasukuni Shrine Festival) had no classes.

Visited the Nagasakis with Quiambao and enjoyed hearing such records as “Sampaguita” [ “Jasmine Flower” ], “Arimundingmunding,” “Abaruray,” etc., which we borrowed from Miniong Aquino of the Hoso Kyokai (Broadcasting Station).

Went to the Imperial Hotel this p.m. at 5:00 to accompany Quiambao to see Speaker Aquino and bring some letters.

News of my promotion to captain reached me this evening through Bert Lavides who said he read the news item in a copy of the Tribune. Hope this is true, but it is too good to be true.
