Dear Diary,

I think I’m going to like Jack Benny’s summer replacement. Each week a complete radio show will be presented by the government. Bob Hope and the gang will be on some time soon. That is, if he ever gets back to Hollywood. He’s been gone since April 30, and probably won’t return until about June 20. He’s doing the government a lot of goo, I know, but I wonder how his wife and two children feel about it. He might as well be in the army, as far as their seeing him is concerned. Speaking of the army, I wonder what his plans are concerning same. I’m just wondering if that magazine article was really true.

Dear Diary,

In the morning paper it stated that the program to replace Bob Hope in the summer will be a story about a female Andy Hardy. That may be fairly good, but naturally I wish he wouldn’t go off the air. I’m going to miss him this summer, but I guess he needs the rest more than I need to hear his program.
