Dear Diary,

Skinnay Ennis was the guest on the Fitch Band Wagon today. It was only natural that he talked about Bob Hope a lot. He told a cute story about something that happened in Houston while they were there with the Victory Caravan. It was on Tuesday night, so Bob had to take time out to give his weekly broadcast for the soldiers at Ellington Field. The two auditoriums are in the same building, and separated only by a heavy curtain. So, Bob sneaked all the stars of the Caravan over to his own show before it went on the air. The soldiers got a free show which would regularly have cost several dollars.
