I don't know why they bother to put out these fancy clothes, no one can afford them, unless they're given as a gift. Geisele told me that one of the older girls her sister knows got a gift
of Coca- Cola and nylon stockings from her American GI friend. The GI's keep handing out powdered coffee and spam which makes the villagers happy. I'd be happy with chocolate, lots of it, enough to last me through the war!
