6th day, January 2, 1945

[In Negros] We had a sumptuous dinner last night—chickens, asparagus, green beans and adobo—for the first time in three years. I heard radio music and a news broadcast. Col. Andrews gave me immediately “Lucky Strikes” and sen-sen gum.

I slept soundly last night. This morning we have real good coffee, genuine fresh butter and American biscuit as well as corn beef. What a change from that of our food in the nets!

Col. Andrews and I chew the rag the whole day long, telling each other of our experiences.

He told me about the broadcast of President Osmeña on the puppets—I expressed myself frankly, that if true, it didn’t strike me favorably.

I find the sentiment here against puppets very strong and condemnatory.
