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.

Dear Diary,

Another Tuesday, which means only eleven more Tuesdays remain until Bob Hope comes back on the air. Gee whiz anyway, why doesn’t he make a few guest appearances on the radio so I won’t miss him so much. I can’t remember the last time he was on any radio program other than his own. But then, I guess he’s a pretty busy guy as it is, without going around raising other people’s Crossley ratings. Just the same, I would still like to know when he’s going to be on the Victory Parade show. If he isn’t on it, I’m gonna be mad.
