Went to Padang this AM. Got a haircut, one batik, some cookies, swimming trunks and razor blades. Paper for Oakes’ package was Philadelphia Inquirer of December 10 which described the Prep’s 27-6 victory over Northeast for City Championship.

Had hot nasi-goreng at Oranje Hotel and came back to Yankee about three. Oakes, Gil, and I had some beer in the deckhouse and we talked over the situation in grand style.
