Aunt Olla plays whist

While visiting Aunt Olla at the Fertile Hilton yesterday, she told me about a game of whist she had attempted. No need for me to relate the story second hand; Olla wrote it down herself. (I think she's tired of me twisting what she says.)
For a while now, I have wanted to play four-handed whist again. I told this to Linda who is on the activity program. She said she would come and get me one day and find the best players.

This she did. She got us started, but then she had to leave for a meeting so couldn't give us the help we so desperately needed.

History unearthed

The son of a reporter who was the first into Nagasaki after the bomb dropped has put together a book of his father's dispatches, which were intercepted by General McArthur and supressed at the time.

Notice the statistics about American prisoners in the Japanese prison camps.
