Dear Diary,

Bob Crosby took Bing’s place on KMH tonight so Bing could join the Victory Caravan, headed for Dallas. Bob said at the end of the program that unless he got a nasty letter from Bing, he would be on the show again next week.

In the meantime Bing and Bob Hope did all right in Chicago. They made over $2,000 in their golf match, although they had to call the game at the ninth hole to rehearse for the show that night. The show that night drew in $90,000. Most of it was from admission tickets, and the rest came from the sale of kisses by the stars. One woman paid $500 for a kiss from Bob Hope. Oh, for $500!
