Friday, June 8 (1945)

Thunder lightening and cloudburst. Began before dawn and still pouring at seven. Streams out of banks and many persons not at work. Cleared bot and steamy. Got a few minor matters cleaned up and late in PM C.W. ht us with a lot of cut over orders. He's virtually junked the whole blow down plan. Writing now wondering if there'll be any baseball. Rumored old Vinegar Joe may command Chinese expedition. There was baseball. S. Eng. Dist. beat S & W in fine game 3-0.
