| THE ARTIST'S TEST [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 26 November 1920

| THE ARTISTS TEST Shakespeare once said : All the Worlds a . Staged The Bard s famous . words are proven every day in theatricals more so than in any other business ; or profession . • Very often an artist ; regardless of his or her troubles , goes before an audience and delivers the goods in spite , of the fact that something is wrong at home o r he is not feeling well . Down m Atlanta not long ago , Margaret Ford , wearing her brightest and happiest of stage smiles , stepped before-an audience that instantly sat erect in tacit tribute to real personality . The orchestra swung into the rhythmic measures of a song of to-day that hinted of the blended sweetness and pain of love . The Atlanta Constitution describes the rest as follows : Then , without the slightest sign of warning , Miss Ford s usually smooth voice broke badly . There , was a sob in its notes that the music didnt call for ; and then a childish voice in the audience piped : Mama , the- lady is crying . Sure enough , r...

LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 26 November 1920

LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS Artists Who Have Grievances of Any Kind are Invited to Write GOLF MEMBERSHIP Columbia , S . C-., November 13 , 1920 . My Dear Mr . Albee : I am taking the liberty in writing you just a few lines to say that our Southern time is being very much enjoyed and I find that managers everywhere are trying to do everything to make it pleasant for performers . For instance , in Columbia , I have just learned that the manager , Mr . Charles H . Miot , has purchased a membership in Ridgewood Club which has a beautiful golf course , and it is his intention to have all artists who are so inclined visit this club and enjoy a game of golf . or sit around and chat with people outside of the profession . I believe some mention of this should be made so that acts visiting Columbia will know in advance that they can play golf and enjoy a half day at the Club House so that they will have something to look forward to . With kind personal regards , I am , Your very t...

I EDITORIAL | [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 26 November 1920

I EDITORIAL | ARTIST OR ACTOR ? Have you noticed the ever-in-creasing popularity of the term artist ? Has it occurred to you that this is a much more , dignified and meaningful designation than actor or performer ? All three , of course , mean substantially the same thing , as applied to those whose mission is making the public forget , its worries and its woes . Of late years the word artist has come into favor , and usage as regards vaudeville entertainers . The term actor is as old as the profession itself , but it is too blunt and too general . The same objection applies to the word performer . Vaudeville actors ARE artists . Websterdefines an artist as one proficient in one of the high arts while an actor is one who acts or performs . Do you get the distinction ? Anyone who goes upon the stage m an attempt to please the public , is an actor but the person who is skilled in his profession—in other words who has made good —is an artist . The managers are largely responsible for t...

"MUSINGS" J [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 26 November 1920

MUSINGS J By JIMMY LYONS When in doubt play safe . Something more stunning than a Paris creation—a black-jack , Variety is the spice of life . What was present clay Vaudeville called years ago ? Tempo and temper don t go well together . When everything isnt as you wish , it s probably because of your own making . Some _ acts on the big time for the first time , start to packWednesday , night after the show , from force of habit . Be the last to condemn , and the first to commend . It s hard to convince the . mother of a child ; wonder that it has out-grown its childhooA . If some were only half as clever as they pretend—they would not be referred to as dumb . To not recognize an insult , is to admit either being , a coward or being dense . Some fool -started- the expression ; shes too good for me —and now a lot 6 t others believe it . It must be great to have the Palace wished on you for , a showing . When will we stop hearing womens names as , Billie , Jackie , Teddy , etc . ?

LOST AND FOUND IN THE THEATRES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 26 November 1920

LOST AND FOUND IN THE THEATRES ( The following story appeared recently in THE VANCOUVER ( B . C . ) SUNDAY SUN . It was written by the Orpheum press agent in that city and sent to us by D . C . Jenkins , of the SUN Staff . —ED . ) The question of what becomes of hairpins has been solved . All that . disappear find their way into * the - Lost and Found Department of all the theatres : in town . But that isnt all that is lost . Perhaps-no greater ensemble of nothingness and something else could ever be accumulated outside of a second-hand store or a moving picture property room than the junk , valued and valueless , cherished and unsung , as that which janitors sweep up nightly in the theatres ; - How in the name of common sense could a human being lose a set of false teeth ? Yet , here they are , grinning out from underneath a myriad of kid gloves in a lower drawer awaiting ah owner . Maybe the show was so good the men—for it is man s teeth —literally laughed his head off . Must have...

THE "RAIL-HOUND " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 26 November 1920

THE RAIL-HOUND By W . D . ASCOUGH Manager Miles Regent . Theatre , Detroit , Mich . Among the many problems that present themselves to the manager of a two or more floor theatre is the rail-hounds , a bothersome clique of individuals , loud of mouth , vulgar of expression , who invariably entrench themselves back of the orchestra rail and comment on the virtue of the show . In brief he is a nuisance , a hard to get-rid-of-pest . The manager has a hard time of trying not to hurt the above mentioned chaps and yet tell them their dropping of chewing guni on the expensive carpets will not be tolerated . In my opinion a slide thrown on the screen ^ asking their co-operation may prove a blessing to some managers . I am trying this stunt myself . It is an established fact that the human animal is a mimic , and . this has been proven to me since becoming a theatre manager . I enjoy watching my audience copy a certain style of walk or talk that they have seen some artist do on the stage . I ...
