Monday, May 7 (1945)

Warner and clear in morning. Still not very heavily engaged. The gibbet continues to rise and we have the shop moved under orders. In PM tried to find end of old 3" line. Most of our new power units are now on their foundations. After supper watched Eastman beat Carbide in a loosely played but hard fought game - 11 innings. Fercleve then started to give J.A. Jones a good going over but it rained hard. GERMANS IN CZECHO SLOVAKIA AND NORWAY SURRENDER. Just 28 years since I left du Ponts to can the Kaiser!
