Sunday, Jan. 21st, 1945

The Japanese are making machine-gun nests of crude rubber at the corner of the Main Bldg. and the Hospital. Artillery fire can be seen from the 3rd floor. Bombing over Mariquina valley. Breakfast: small
bowl of rice mush. Lunch: cup of vegetable water. Supper: bowl of mush soup with a few beans.

Mr. Shaw, Head of Canadian Pacific, died yesterday. I talked to Jean Wilson. She weighs 91 lbs. down from 180. Men and women sit grimly all day long copying food recipes from cookbooks and magazines.
