Dear Diary,

The Victory Parade show was replaced tonight by Edna Mae Oliver in a comedy show. I think it’s coming back on, but neither the time nor the station has been announced. Well, I know one thing for sure. If it doesn’t come back on the air, I won’t have to worry about when Bob Hope is going to be on it.

Jimmie Fidler said tonight that while Bob Hope was in Washington, he spike to officials about joining the navy. But since Bob is married, the father of two children, and closer to forty than thirty, they told him he was more valuable as a civilian than a sailor. That magazine article I read some time ago said he planned to join the army.
