"MUSINGS" [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 5 November 1920
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS Judging by the ease with which some lie , youd imagine it were impossible to tell the truth . To open a new house must be pleasure . To close an old one , not so good . Some find fault justly , while with others it s chronic . We none of us know so much that we can t afford to heed advice . Why do some acts kick about four-a-day , and when asked to cut , say they cant ? The quicker it reaches the bank , the sooner it starts to draw interest . It is said that the first thousand is hardest to get . With present living expenses , the second isnt so easy either . Those who kick about split weeks probably never played one-nighters . Theres many a slip twixt the cup and lip —but who cares nowadays , knowing the cup holds nothing better than onehalf of one per cent ? What s become of the men who would remove their hats in an office elevator when a lady entered ?

Soon we will see a resumption normal pre-war conditions—an 1 mtvement , let us hope , as marked as is been the improvement in the conlions existing between the Vaudeville lanager and the Artist . The Artist twenty years ago was In very much e same position as a baby . Grandither may think she Is helping by when she picks him up and plays tli him , but baslcly she Is selfish , mgh it would shock her were you say so .

THE PARABLE OF THE VIRGINS By JOHN CONNERY Once upon a time there lived on the top floor of a boarding house an actor and a secretary . Now these men . were treading the paths of vicissitude -and might have been seen staggering out of Huylers at any hour of the dayor night . It wastheir wont to arrive at the aforesaid domicile at K about Two A . M . and to sleep until Nine !\ This was admittedly slothful , but necessary to their delicate constitutions . Came to the boarding house—two school teachers of exceeding virtue . Now these young ladies were treading ( with hob-nailed shoes , as it will appear hereinafter ) the tight-rope of rectitude . Whether from lack of inclination or from lack of opportunity , they were seldom away from their downy cots later than Ten P . M . It was their wont to arise about Seven , and with the tread of The Gods of the Moun tain , much loud talk , raucous laughter , and door-slamming , . make Bedlam of the morning bath . This jarred the young men from t...
