For over a week we have set here doing nothing. There is occasional air raid or alert, average one about every 5 days. Food is poor — two meals a day — lugao in the morning and a mixture about 3:00 PM consisting of ground corn and lugao and camote soup or green’s soup. We have had meat in the lugao twice, and a little small dried fish (bait) 3 times. About 10:00 this morning, Captain N. Nogi, Surgeon, Imperial Japanese Army, called for Com T. H. Hayes‘ staff and mine and relieved Com Hayes and assigned me as Sr Medical Officer.
