Cover Design for N . V . A . Souvenir The above is a reproduction ( in half-tone ) of the cover of the N . V . A . Souvenir Programme for May 18 th , 1920 . The original drawing , being in full color , does not , of course , lend itself to reproduction in black and white ; a great deal of the delicate coloring being necessarily lost . Mr .

FROM AN Al TIST [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 April 1920

FROM AN ARTIST The Following Letter from an Artist is Typical of Many Received Recently of a Similar View ; York , Pa . , April 14 th , 1920 . Mr . E . F . Albee , Palace Theatre Bldg , N . Y . C . My Dear Mr. Albee : I was very much interested in the address you the other night at the N . V . A . It went far beyond the walls of the Club House ; it was quite freely discussed here in York by the artists on the bill . It ' s becoming to be understood by the Vaudeville artists of today that vaudeville is a stabilized industry and that the agitator has less interest in the vaudeville artist than he has in stirring up strife for a livlihood. For , once they know what it is possible to adjust all differences in thier own organization , the service station of the agitator becomes useless . I beg to remina . Yours very truly , ARTHUR TERRY .

14 WORD TO VAUDEVILL CRITICS ' By BERT LEVY I [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 April 1920

A WORD TO VAUDEVILLE CRITICS By BERT LEVY The average vaudeville critic who writes for the papers is , as a rule , a highly educated individual , correct in his opinions and just in his arguments , but wrong in his viewpoint , for he loses sight of the fact that ninety-nine out of a hundred people who surround him in an audience are not educated up to his standard , which is an ultra-critical one . In some cities the success of a theatre -- per- haps representing a half mil-lion-dollar investment -- is somewhat jeopardized by a local critic who takes a delight in thoughtlessly " rapping '" the bill weekly without stopping to consider that he or his paper is undermining a local institution which is as much a public institution as a certain restaurant or a wellknown dry goods store . Yet no critic even things of going into one of those shops and publicly critisizing the coffee and eggs . Perhaps my will te that oftrepeated statement that the theatre invites criticism etc . simply prof...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 April 1920

It has beeiij suggested that a good system is for vaudeville artists to drop a line at least a week in advance to cities they are going to p ay , informing the management on just what train they expect to arrive . In that way a better means of co-operation can he established . be- % tween the different theatres and the acts in regard to the handling of baggaee on their arrival . The management would also be in a better . position to keep posted on . the time of trains , , in case they artv-late or in H > e event of a wreck . This would be a great help to many opening performances . ¦ - j . : L . Lew Reed has asumed his new duties as manager backstage at B . F * Keith s Riverside Theatre . Mr .
