Dear Diary,

I saw in a magazine article today that the definition of a jeep, according to Bob Hope, is “a malted-milk machine that got drafter.” Really, Bob, I’d never have thought it of you. I really thought you had more pride than that.

There was a tribute to George Gershwin on the radio tonight. Some of the better known participants in the show were Bill Goodwin, Bing Crosby, Dinah Shore, Edward Arnold, the King’s Men, and Paul Whiteman and his orchestra. It was awfully good, and the King’s Men sang the most beautiful arrangement of “Bidin’ My Time” that I ever heard.
