December 20, 1944

Alert status persists, death this morning of Ernest C. Anderson Pvt. B.A. – cause, alvealar carcinoma, shown by autopsy. Atemortem diagnosis bronchgenic carcinoma. This is the third death this month, caused by malignancy, all patients in their twenties, and no metastases found. Apparently, the general cachexia makes them less resistant to malignancy and they expire from inanition before the lesion has progressed markedly.

Move seems to be well completed including utility offices, and thus the compound seems unusually quiet since patients are keeping close to their buildings because of alert status.
