[October 17-22, 1939] It's Tom's last week at home. News of German air raids in Europe worries Hans. He suffers from a troubling mixture of paranoia and national pride. Anna tells Tom about her father's keepsake from his time in the German army. Hans is furious. John visits Mrs. J. and Lil to 'check on Lil's health'. He has quite a personal impact on Lil already. Tom's day to depart comes - his room seems overly quiet and empty when he's gone.
