Dear Diary,

I saw in the paper today that Bob Hope will go to Chicago June 14 on a bond selling drive. The article said the goal is one billion dollars. That’s a lot of mulah, but if anybody can sell that much, Bob Hope is the man to do it. Carole Lombard sold over two million dollars worth in one day, and Dorothy Lamour has approached the billion dollar mark in a tour over the country (which will bring her to Dallas Friday.) But if Bob sets out to sell a billion dollars worth of bonds in two or three days, I’ll bet my last red penny that he reaches that goal. I saw another article in the paper that said Bob will play a Red Cross golf match June 13. Oh that man!
