EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 19 November 1920
EDITORIAL SELFISHNESS If there is any one trait to be found in ALL human beings it is selfishness . We do not say , however , that every one does not perform an unselfish deed now and then . But really unselfish deeds are rare in most people . We may kid ourselves into believing that a certain favor we do for someone B is purely from altruistic motives , but sizing it up in a cold and neutral manner , we discover that after all there is at least a subconscious hope for some measure of personal gain to ourselves as a result of this unselfish favor . When an artist joins the N . V . A . he is selfish—and quite naturally so . He joins because he believes he will benefit HIMSELF . And the organization that- will not be of benefit to you is not worth joining . The managers , in accomplishing all of the improvements for artists that are now evident to everyone , have been prompted by SELFISHNESS . No less an authority than Mr . E . F . Albee himself , has said so , in as many words , upon...

"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 19 November 1920
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS It must bg great closing the show in a small town—and . . see .. nothing but the backs of your audience . To lose money is bad . To lose a friend is bad also , but to lose ambition is the worst loss of all . Lying and stealing go hand in hand . Next to being a good winner , is being a good loser . Those who influence you to doing good , are your friends , and believe in you . Just as good • usually proves unsatisfactory . . ¦ , Why does the actor persist in leading an irregular existence ? He who spurns a suggestion is the worst kind of a fool . Secret for success in showdom : Listen , remember and say nothing . We of the theatre should be proud , for are we not disciples of the God of Happiness ? What you once did , means nothi-g . It s what youre doing now , that counts . Some people are so stupid , -they have an idea bridges are . built to give shade to the fish . Losing ones temper publicly shows lack of proper training . Some acts grumble because tiny nev...
