THE MANAGERS' FORUM [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 7 May 1920
THE MANAGERS FORUM DONT BE A STAGE DOORKEEPER By TOM J . MYERS ( Oakland , Cal . ) Don t be a stage doorman . This is not a slam at the doorman at the rear of the house ; in fact , it is an expression of fraternal sympathy , and the article is written because I read recently in a well known trade T . J . MYIHS paper that a man who for years was a big-time headliner and who had appeared before royalty and whose wife had been principal boy in many a well known London panto and who now were stage doorkeeper and janitress of a theatre in Los Angeles . Both you and I have spoken to many a stage doorkeeper . Of course , we liked him . Who could help liking him ? He is of us and was of the profession , and back in your mind you can recall his history , and if you will think a bit you will sense that it is somewhat tragic Tragic because he missed opportunities , or that he had a run of mighty bad luck , or that he failed to save some money when times were good and he was in the hey- . day o...

How Artists Feel About the N . V . A . MARIE NORDSTROM HOTEL ALGONQUIN , NEW YORK . DEAR MR . ALBEE : Knowing your interest in the N . .

Mr . Albee ' s Reply [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 7 May 1920
Mr . Albee s Reply May 3 , 1920 . MY DEAR MISS NORDSTROM : Yours with the newspaper clipping and picture of Judge Landis of Chicago , Miss Marion Bent and yourself , received . It is mighty fine of you and Miss Bent to take this interest , and it is also most generous on your part to offer to donate one day s salary to the fund . I feel that were I to recommend this , it would be an injustice to those who cannot afford to donate one day s salary , so out of consideration for all , I feel that the efforts that the vaudeville artists are putting forth to make the National Vaudeville Artists Day a big success is all that is required of them . . There is , however , one consideration on the artists part that I could recommend , and that is that they point out the benefits to be derived , and interest all artists in vaudeville to become loyal members of the N . V . A . I personally feel ( and I know I have the co-operation of every other vaudeville manager in the United States ) that so ...
