Alert early this morning, nothing happened.

Today Dickey visited his buddy down on one of the ships in the harbor. He brought back a sack of sugar, coffee, 2 lbs fresh butter, cheese, bread, canned stuff, and a couple dozen porkchops. They ate half of the chops tonight.

Early this morning we [had] a short air raid. There was a heavy concentration of shooting, but I didn’t see any plane. The whole thing was over by the time I hit the foxhole.

Saw show Standing Room Only. Paulette Goddard, Fred MacMurray.
