February 2, 1942 — Monday

The question of the President’s trip to the U.S. was again discussed by the President and General MacArthur. It was decided that in case our forces in Bataan are pushed back by the enemy, General MacArthur would advise the President. His further stay in ‘the rock’ would be unnecessary and his capture by the enemy would prevent him from continuing the fight in the U.S. In the afternoon, the Vice-President, Chief Justice Abad Santos, Colonel Marron and myself walked to the Navy tunnel to see him. We met Admiral Rockwell and his Chief of Staff. We had to return as the President was looking for me. The tunnel was cool, clean, interesting.
