April 15, 1942

A Spaniard was called to Fort Santiago. While waiting for his investigator, he started cursing a Japanese soldier in Spanish. He thought the Japanese could not understand him. It so happened that the Japanese spoke fluent Spanish, having been in South America. The Spaniard left Fort Santiago black and blue.

Mr. Concepcion, chief, warehousing division, explained that to load PVO bodega to full capacity, rearrangement of piles should be made. He also stated that the capacity of Oriente has been reduced as portions of the two compartments are (being) utilized by the National Trading Corporation for storing milk and the other chambers are used for fumigation.

A Nazi and a Filipino had an argument at the Astoria restaurant. The Filipino said: “Now you are winning the war. But in the end, you Axis fellows haven’t got a chance. This is just the first round.” The Nazi: “I can’t permit you to talk that way. Do you still think this is a democracy?” And so the Nazi called a Japanese officer who was standing nearby. The Nazi showed his swastika band and said: “This man is talking against the Axis,” The Filipino banged the table and told the Japanese: “Officer, this white man said that all brown men are monkeys.” The Japanese got the Nazi by the collar and kicked him out of the restaurant. Said an onlooker: “Nazi-pa.”
