Wednesday, May 16 (1945)

Got my new alteration on carriage laid out. Work ragged. Should have been done by noon but just finished before quitting. Had rained early but cleared to a hot steamy day. Wore cotton and got terribly dirty. In evening took a nap and then watched AIT and Stone & Webster at hardball. Woodward again driven to the showers but at 10:30 AIT led 703. Very hot and stuffy. Last group of Germans reported to have surrendered. World War II ends. (ex. Japs).
