H. Beaber - At Los Banos, Philippines - Wednesday, November 15, 1944

Willie is cooking sward beans and tomatoes for our supper. My food detail job is getting to be a headache.

Some complaints were made and today, we have a house meeting. All was ironed out.

According to the scales, I have lost 3 more pounds. Really, it is getting to be quite a desperate situation and we think it will get worse before it can get better.


I have been suspicious for a week of having beni-beni. Today, I can see unmistakable signs, and will go to see the doctors for advice. Most in the camp have it and some at pitiful cases. In the PM, I saw the doctor and was given some tablets of Vitamin B. Enough for 25 days. I wonder if that will be sufficient.
