Dear Diary,

Disappointment number one has been remedied. In other words, Hedda Hopper sent me a copy of her “My Hat’s Off to You” tribute to Bob Hope. It is really swell. As a rule she ends by saying, “And so my hat’s off to you, — —,” but she ended this one by saying, “My hat isn’t just off to you, Bob. My hat is YOURS!” It was awfully nice of her to send me a copy of it, and I’m certainly going to write her and tell her so. A thing like that encourages a person to write fan letters. I might even get up enough courage to write Bob Hope. I haven’t had the strength to do it yet.

Dear Diary,

Ever since Hedda Hopper started her feature, “My Hat’s Off to You,” I’ve been waiting patiently for her to get around to Bob Hope. So today I cam home from the U. S. O. at 6:30, pick up the paper and read that today Bob Hope gets Hedda Hopper’s “Hat’s Off” tribute. I was so disappointed at having missed it that I wrote her and asked for a copy of it. I doubt if I’ll get it, but there’s certainly no harm in trying.

I saw “Fantasia” tonight. It was a beautiful piece of work. I could see it again and enjoy it just as much.

Dear Diary,

On Hedda Hopper’s feature, “My Hat’s Off to You,” she took her hat off to Bing Crosby. She gets closer every week, but if she doesn’t hurry up and take her “hat off” to Bob Hope, I’m going to get mad. (I guess I’ll get mad.) I often find it rather difficult to realize that not everyone likes him as much as I do. However, I know she does like him some, because I’ve heard her say several times what a swell guy she thinks he is. And speaking of Bing, as I was at first, Hedda said he was in an automobile accident and was treated for minor injuries to his lip. He was released from the hospital after packs were applied.
