Back to Horse and Buggy? [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 8 January 1942
Back to Horse and Buggy? It’s far-fetched, of course, but with the ban on tire and tube sales, American civilians may be headed back to the horse and buggy days.

CROSBY IS JEALOUS [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 8 January 1942
CROSBY IS JEALOUS For a sequence in "My Favorite Blonde” Bob Hope wears an outfit representing a New York vaudeville actor’s idea of Hollywood sartorial elegance—sky blue slacks, a Joseph’s coat of many colors in two- inch square checks and a three-toned striped tie.
