6th Very cold and windy. Rode to head quarters 4th Pioneer Btn. Things were very quiet all day. About 8pm we were warned to keep our gas helmets handy as it was anticipated that Fritz would send gas over. Anyhow he didn't. So that was all right.

8th Still cold & windy. Today I submitted my name as a candidate for the Cadet officers
