Jack Patton and Loretta Marks celebrated their engagement on the trip a few weeks ago . Emma Haigs engagement announcement was reported when she was playing the split week .

HARKING BACK [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

HARKING BACK Interior and exterior of the old Bird Cage Theatre , as It looks today . This theatre was erected at Tombstone , Ariz ., in 1881 , and is described in an interesting manner by Al Fostell In the accompanying article . By AL FOSTELL The accompanying views of the old Bird Cage Theatre , interior and exterior , will give one a faint idea of the typical wine room concert hall which prevailed throughout Texas and the western country during the 70 s and 80 s—the days of the wild and wooley west —when anything and everything went from a knock-down and drag-out to a necktie party . The Bird Cage Theatre had the reputation of being one of the most notorious resorts of its kind throughout the west and southwest . Tombstone , Ariz ., was the rendezvous of gamblers , cowboys , cowpunchers , rounders , Buffalo skinners , Indians , greasers , and Mexican marauders ; in fact , the worst types of the above clans could be found at one time in Tombstone , Ariz . Here such men collected as...

It s a fine thing-to say to a man when he s wondering what become of his summer s wages . A feller has to figure pretty close to save anything on the time Im playin out here . I lost money in the last town . I come away and forgot my soap . Ive got a new system now that works pretty well . I go to the cafeteria with the rest of the actors , but I only order a cup of coffee and piece of pie . They always get more than they can eat , so I buy it off em for less than half of the original cost . Besides , I avoid the risk of carrying it to the table .

ARTHUR TERRY MAKES A SPEEC H I ( Extracts from talk made by Arthur Terry to the vaudeville artists at Dcs Mo , - ,, • Iowa , at the beginning of the N . V . A . membership campaign . ) FELLOW-ARTISTS : —Now that the election is over we are turning our attention to the industry in which we are most interested . Do we call Vaudeville an industry nowadays ? We most certainly do . Why not ? Its capitalization is one of the largest in the United States . Millions are expended every year to improve this industry . How ? Why , by building new playhouses , where the artist may sell his wares . Play houses must be up-to-date these days . The public demands every modern improvement . Then , as a worker in these theatres , the artist must keep abreast of the times—the public demands it . The workers in the industry must stand for progress , improvement and efficiency . The actor must harmonize with the general advancement of the theatre . There can be no forward movement without cooperation . ...

THE ORCHESTRA LEADER [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

THE ORCHESTRA LEADER By J . S . AS IT WAS I am the old-fashioned kind of a leader you seldom see nowadays . I used to growl at actors when they didnt have their music written correctly . I never liked to do favors for . any of them because I never did favors for anybody anyway . Why should I do any actor a favor ? They never gave me a benefit . Humhl . . And another thing , actors who didn t get their music played right used to make faces down at me and that s why I used to get even with them . I don t judge people because I want to , I judge them all because some egg got my nanny goat one day . I shall always remember that bird . I never used to play their music forte at their finish as they ought to be satisfied with two bows anyway . That s the way I felt about it , see ? I am for ME-last and always , not anybody else . AS IT IS I am the twentieth-century orchestra leader . I am human , and . want to do the right thing always . My favorite proverb is : Dp unto others as you would...
