SENDS ADVANCE DATA TO ALL HIS ARTISTS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 12 November 1920

SENDS ADVANCE DATA TO ALL HIS ARTISTS Ward and Dooley want to express their appreciation of the thoughtfulness of the manager of the American Theatre , Chicago , in mailing to each artist who is to appear at his house , a printed folder of valuable information . This is an idea being used by a number of managers and is worthy of emulation . As Ward and Dooley express it : It might serve as an example to other managers who are trying to make the actors burden lighter . The folder gives the name , address and phone number of the theatre , with detailed instructions as how to reach it . It confirms the artists playing dates , lists the number of shows , gives time of orchestra rehearsal , pieces in orchestra , directors name , names of stage and house staff , baggage information , neighborhood restaurants , hotels , all railroad stations , etc . The folder is mailed to each act before it goes into Chicago . This is a simple and inexpensive method of helping the artist and is of incalcu...

LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 12 November 1920

LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS Artists Who Have Grievances of Any Kind are Invited to Write GO OUT OF THEIR WAY CINCINNATI , OHIO , October 27 , 1920 . Dear Mr . Albee : May I offer a word of commendation for Manager Ned Hastings , of Keiths , Cincinnati , and his most able assistant , Mr . Beers . When I arrived here on Monday , it was pouring rain . A blue Monday , it surely seemed , for not only was there a Convention going on , but the races besides , and every hotel apparently packed to capacity . Messrs . Hastings and Beers have arranged that four rooms be held at both the Sinton and Gibson Hotels every Monday until noon for the convenience of performers , which In itself is very thoughtful . By the time I had finished orchestra rehearsal it was past noon , and acts who had arrived earlier had taken advantage of those reserved rooms . Mr . Beers , on finding I wasnt settled , went out to the box-office and did some phoning . He finally came back stage and to make sure ...

NOT ONE , BUT MANY [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 12 November 1920

NOT ONE , BUT MANY Propaganda is- being used by those who are skeptical and not interested in any improvements in vaudeville that when Mr . Albee dies , all this work for the betterment of vaudeville will cease . It would be well for the se people to read the letters that are published in . the trade papers and in THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS every week , which belie any such .. statement or condition , whether Mr . Albee , or a half-dozen managers who are interested in this work , died . Mr . Albee is carrying out the managers desires as a representative of the VAUDEVILLE MANAGERS PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION , and the managers throughout the United States are giving him the most hearty co-operation . What a ridiculous contention that after four years of cooperation by the managers with their association , by the artists with their association—the National Vaudeville Artists , Inc . — and these two associations harmonizing and working together with one accord ,, all should disintegrate and be dis...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 12 November 1920

EDITORIAL SPEAK RIGHT UP If you are a member of the N . V . A ., dont be backward about telling people of It . It is something to be proud of . This was brought home forcibly recently , when one of Europe s most distinguished journalists visited the Club quite unexpectedly and spent an entire evening within its hospitable walls . He Is a man who has traveled the universe and seen life In all of Its phases . It Is not an exaggeration to state that few persons who have visited the club since its opening have been more lavish In their praise than he . l have been entertained In the most exclusive clubs of every land , he said , but I do not recall having ever seen one where there Is such a wholesome atmosphere , such a spirit of genuine oomraderle , and such uniformly comfortable and eye-pleasing decorations as I found at the home of the American vaudeville artists . This is not all he said , by any means . He contrasted the position of the American artist with that of the performers o...

LETTERS FROM A SELF-MADE ACTOR TO HIS AGENT By ARTHUR TERRY MUSCATINE , IOWA , November 6 th . Friend Lew : Now that election is over and we are going to have a new President , I do hope we can keep him at home . We have had a good deal of trouble that way , lately . The question out in this part of the country now is what are we going to do about coal . During the campaign , of course , it was warm enough , but now that the political speakers have quit talkin , a feller can look for cold weather most any time . They have already began to burn corn in Nebraska to keep warm . They used to drink it out there for the same purpose . The crime , epidemic is gettin pretty bad in this neck of the woods . • If a man owns any . real estate , the tax collectors hound him to death . If hes got any money , the holdups take it away from him . Im glad I m broke . Thats no joke . I wouldnt be out here if I wasn t . Yours truly , ... ¦ ARTHUR TERRY .

On arriving , our . show was informed by the baggage man that the Loew show p layed the Opera House . We had previously been told it was the Majestic .
