Wednesday, May 9 (1945)

Well, this is the day after the war "ended." The Germans are still fighting in Czecho Slavakia and about 100,000 up in Latoria haven't quit. Goering surrounded to our 7th Army. At the plant business as usual. Still trying to get the gibbet built. Found we were out of he three inch pipe and fittings. That balls up the condensate job! Lots of talk about racks and pressure chambers. Very little else. Oh yes. They say now it wasn't VE day after all. At 8:00 went down to watch Fercleve play Engineers hard ball. Did pretty fair for six innings. then their pitcher had to leave and it was another massacre.
