Submitted by Barbara Anslow on Thu, 04/19/2012 - 17:20

Went to see Mr Davis ((can't remember his initials)) to get date for our one-act plays. It might have to be after April.

Worked in afternoon.

Spent evening with Gladys Johnson in her corridor.

Newspaper says 'Neissei Maru' sails 4th January from Kobe, first instalment (food parcels) for U.S. p.o.ws and internees in Japan and China; next shipment to go to Philippines and southern regions.  Father Meyer says we will all surely get some. Paper says Soviets refuse American military aircraft permission to land in Soviet territory.

F. M. von Runsted's offensive said to be building up for second phase.

United Press says American forces had pushed back German salient for 14 miles.

I cooked for Dr Hargreaves in morning.  Visited Fleur (Cheape) in hospital.

Kristine said she'd rather help with production of plays than act.
