There was quite a heavy downpour today. A French brother laughed after Mass: “It’s a hailstorm. But now it is no longer Heil Hitler but Hail Columbia.” Coming down afterward from Gora to Miyanoshita on the electric tram I noticed, that there were two cars instead of the usual one. The First was packed to the doors; the other, completely empty except for two Soviet diplomats. The Japanese police are now so suspicious of them that they will no longer allow them in the same cars with the rest of us.
