THE VAUDEVILLE SCOUT [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 19 November 1920

THE VAUDEVILLE SCOUT Ky BEN HARNETT The requisite qualifications necessary to become a successful vaudeville scout are manifold . One must rather understand the ethics of modern showmanship and the value of talent , whether in embryo or in the final throes of finished development . He , must not be aesthetic in his tastes , likes or dislikes . If he isn t he is bound to err in his judgment and perhaps lose caste as a real Columbus of future stars and headliucrs . Then again he must also know how to visualize and concentrate and demonstrate that he is capable of separating . (¦ he wheat from the chaff , for all is not wheat that filters through the sieve of vaudeville . Now that I have divulged a few of the ¦ secrets of a calling . which lias been my lot since I left the newspaper field close to ten years ago permit me to disclose some of the methods employed in endeavoring to dig up hidden talent . First of all you bear in mind that the uncouth amateur of today may he the sterling p...
