H. Beaber - In the Philippines - Wednesday, January 7, 1941-1942

About 20 men in our room and we were told to get organized. That is, to appoint a monitor who would be responsible for the behaviour of the occupants and to make a list of names and other information.

Ernest was appointed monitor as he knew Japanese and would make a good intercessor for our room, a Mr. McCune was appointed head monitor of the annex.

Lots of questions as to why, when, and what for, but no answers.
