Dear Diary,

I went to the Cotton Bowl game today. Alabama defeated Texas A. & M. 29 to 21. It was so cold at the game that my feet almost broke off. As a matter of fact, this has been one of the coldest days in Dallas in almost two years.

Mary Martin joined the gang on the Kraft Music Hall tonight. She took Connie Boswell’s place, since Connie is going ona long personal appearance tour throughout the East. Victor Borge gave a repeat performance of his phoenetic (Is that the way to spell it?) punctuation. Not only that, but he also became a regular member of the gang tonight. With all those good stars on the program (including Jerry Lester and Bing), it is second to only one program—Bob Hope.


Dear Diary,

I listened to the Cotton Bowl game on the radio today. Mother was sick from shrimp poioning so we didn’t go to the game. Texas A.& M. played Fordham today and the Aggies won 13-12. It was a good game and more exciting than the Rose bowl game which was on another station later.

I found a magazine today with a big picture and article on Bob Hope. They called him a wack because he takes off his shoes after he puts on his pyjamas so I guess I’m a wack because I’ve been doing that all my life.
