Started the day with weak lugao and still weaker coffee.

Air raid alarm at 10:30 a.m. Forty of our big planes, flying very high. Went north. No rough stuff around here.

The Japs celebrating today. They killed a pig last night.

Had a cup of fairly good soup for lunch.

All clear went before 1:00 p.m. The Japs must be getting drunk. They have been shouting “Banzai” and singing up until about 2:30 p.m. Maybe they all most all “plastado” now. They’re in their office on the whole ground floor of the Ed. Bldg. and use part of the second floor as a store room. They take anything they want –even the papayas and bananas we planted. If one of our people are caught taking anything from the garden, they are given 15 days in jail. That is justice.
