Dear Diary,

I got a picture of Bob Hope and Dona Drake from “The Road to Morocco” today. In the same magazine there was an open letter to all the stars of the Victory Caravan. There were only three paragraphs in the whole letter and one of them was entirely about Bob. It mentioned his tour of army and navy camps to entertain more than 100,000 men in the armed services and called it the longest tour any entertainer has ever made donating his services—and on vacation time, too. The letter went on to say that although Bob enjoys an audience and gets as much kick out of the shows as they do, he is making the appearances for free—and for freedom.
