Dear Diary,

As usual, the Kraft Music Hall was sell tonight. It appears that Jerry Lester became the father of a boy last week. Bing asked him if everyone wanted to hold the baby on their lap, and Jerry replied, “Well, no, Bing. Not since the government announced a shortage of rubber.” Bing and Mary Martin sang three songs tonight that they sang in “Birth of the Blues.” Jerry joined them in “The Waiter and the Porter and the Upstairs Maid.”

I was reading the paper today, and when I came to the sports page, I saw that Bing Crosby and Bob Hope are arranging a trip here early in February to do a benefit golf match for the Red Cross. On the amusement page it said that reports that Bing and Bob would be here had not been confirmed!
