Japanese and Germans still claim to be winning.
Wonder what our lousy isolationists, pacifists, and strikers now think? They should be slightly spanked, etc.
Won 3-1 from Brookhart and drew 1-1 rummy with J.B.S.
Repatriation! Ah. When? If?
Miss R. Nieh sent me a pound of Bakerite "Chews". Very kind of her.

Forgot to make the entry. Was rainy.
March 6, 1942. Friday. 89th Day.
Wet in forenoon.
Went to Russian Ballet at 2:30 at Grand, capacity 2200. Full house. 24 piece orchestra was good. So was the ballet. All was a success.
Was lucky to get 2 seats (2 x 3--Chinese $10.00--about US $0.55). Balcony row 1, seats 6 and 8. Best seats. Had been returned tickets.
Sun shone at 5:00 p.m.
In morning called on Capt. Tornroth, He's all burned up. He has Chinese $100,000 in S.P.C. and fears to lose all. Had a hot toddy.
Repatriation seems to be progressing. Seems Batavia has fallen to Japanese.
