Party for Newcomers. There was a little party at the dormitory tonight in honor of Bert Lavides and Ben Sanvictores who transferred to our dormitory two days ago. There was a little beer and a lot of singing.

We are expecting the new bunch of pensionados to arrive soon, as they are reported to have left the Philippines already.
