Dear Diary,

Some people have all the breaks. Sam Goldwyn has been looking for six Washington secretaries to appear in the new Bob Hope picture, “They Got Me Covered.” One of the first girls chosen was Mary Byrne from Dallas. Can you imagine such lucy? She goes to Washington, gets a job a secretary (probably at about $150 a month), and winds up in Hollywood making a picture with none other than Bob Hope! Oh well, I’ll make up for lost time when I meet Bob. What do you mean, I’ll never meet him? I will too. Oh, you want to fight about it?
