The wonderful loyalty of the English public alone insured our success . The Birmingham Gazette says of the teams opening : They introduced one of the cleverest dancing acts ever seen in Birmingham . The novel versatility of their work brought the house down yesterday . .

IT IS UP TO THE ARTISTS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

IT IS UP TO THE ARTISTS It is very often said by artists , when asked about general conditions in vaudeville : Well , I don t know . I have had a few things done to me . Of course , there is a better condition , but there are managers and agents who dont do the right thing all the time . There are a lot of conditions which ought to be improved . Well , why don t you write and tell the managers that ? Write to the Vaudeville Managers Protective Association , and lay your grievances , if they are legitimate , before them . If . there are any suggestions you have to make for the betterment of vaudeville , write that also . And the artist s , reply is : Oh , I dont want t 6 mix into the thing . Let them find it out for themselves . Now let us analyze this . The managers are willing and ready to co-operate with the artists in every practical way , consistent with the running of their business ; in fact , they will stretch a point . There are about 1 , 000 theatres , and among these 1 , 0...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

EDITORIAL GOOD ENGLISH There are too few of our present day artists in Vaudeville who stop to think of the callous way in which the Kings English is abused by them , both on and off the stage . Among the audiences of present day Vaudeville are some of the leading scholars of America , as well as those who boast no educational all ; but we know that badly delivered , ungrammatical English , unless used as Comedy , grates on the ears . On the legitimate stage , great care is taken that nothing but correct English is used . throughout . Try and imagine yourself listening to an ungrammatical rendition of Shakespeare ! II Well , as it is with Shakespeare , so it is with Vaudeville—to a lesser degree , of course . Such expressions as , I seen him do it , Whatcher know ? Lookin atcher , etc ., etc ., are too often used on the present day stage . . Neither bad English nor cuss words mean a thing to the artist , except that after a time he will find his reputation becoming impaired thereby ....

"MAKE IT A HABIT " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

MAKE IT A HABIT No . 3 Hello , old friend , have I time for a little talk ? What s that ? Do I mind your friends joining us?— -Certainly not ! In fact the pleasure is all mine . So you want a little lesson on action eh ? Alright , first of all , bear the TRUTH in mind : ALL ACTION IS THE RESULT OF THOUGHT . Wherever you see an ACT you can wager that it was PRECEDED by a LIKE THOUGHT . Consequently he who keeps his THOUGHTS HABITUALLY RIGHT will find himself IMPELLED TO RIGHT ACTION . So you see the seeds of RIGHT THINKING BEAR FRUIT in RIGHT ACTION . So it continues . RIGHT ACTIONS become the SEEDS that bear FRUIT in RIGHT RESULTS . That is just why some performers are on the SMALL TIME ALL THE TIME . They do not sow the seeds of RIGHT ACTIONS . They shirk at supper shows , they neglect their make-up . They just go on and get it over with . They figure it DOES NOT MATTER because of the small audience , or Because the manager is out to supper . SO THEY CHEAT . If they only knew it , ...

NO MORE ' ROUGHNECKS ' [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

NO MORE ROUGHNECKS Martin L . Semon , manager of the Lyric Theatre in Atlanta , Ga ., in an interview with a reporter of one of the Atlanta dailies recently , said : Because so . many people have , become accustomed to seeing the inanimate shadow actors on the screen , they sometimes go into a popular vaudeville house and forget the personality of the people who are amusing them . Mr . Semon knows vaudeville people , and when he thinks on this subject he draws a few conclusions like these : There are few roughnecks on the vaudeville stage any more . Most of them are normal men and women whose professional life is the development of their talent along some line . Most of them are cultured , respectable and happy . Most of them have been educated either in schools and colleges or in the well known university of experience and travel . They are very well paid nowadays , and they arc able to buy their own houses when they are about the same age as the average citizen who buys his . Thei...

TOPICS OF THE DAY [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

TOPICS OF THE DAY Selected by IfaeJjtaayDgpst PRODUCED Br TIMELY FILMS , Me . Distributed by Pathe BRILLIANT BABBLES BOUT BABIES Babies are a topic of universal appeal . The little chubby creatures , with their grimaces and prattle , bring joy to the hearts of humanity . We all know how proud parents- rave about their precocious offspring . ; On such occasions we listen with due meekness and a limited degree of patience . But when these little praise-fests are considered from a humorous angle in the joke columns of newspapers they cultivate . laughs . How popular such sayings are with audiences , when shown on the motion picture screen -in Topics of the Day Films , is well known by readers of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS . If the following topics don t make you childish with glee , we miss our guess : Don t you think the baby favors his mother ? Hmml Well , he looks like him , but I wouldn t call it a favor . —St .

PERSONALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920

PERSONALITIES Many letters of commendation arrive weekly , concerning vaudeville managers , stage crews and others . Little has been said of the chap who , during the cold winter months , answers a lot of questions and attends to the errands of the artists . The stage doorman is generally a man advanced in years , but is sprightly enough to climb fl ghts of stairs paging the artists for their callers . His lot is not a pleasant one when peddlers and other nuisances insist upon seeing artists who do not wish to be seen . He is sort of a body guard to the artists while inside of the theatre . He is deserving of mention . Frank J . Reynolds , stage doorman at the Pa ace , is a good-natured fellow , always looking his neatest in his uniform . Spotless linen is his forte . He possesses one of those smiles that will not come off . He is a regular feller . Everybody knows Mike Scannell , who tends the door at the Colonial Theatre . His Green Room is his hobby . It is one of the bright spot...

^^ •EDWfcftO TfARSttAO , ) MINNEAPOLIS , MINN ., Nov . 20 th . All but one act of the current bill at the Orpheum here came from St . Paul , so it was a bright snappy show Sunday matinee with no big sleeper or sleepless jump to unfit you for the opening fray . George Raymond s place here is now filled by our old St . Paul friend , E . C . Burroughs , who was on deck Sunday with the big . smile , greeting the newcomers . A local newspaper critic by the name of Judd , panned four out of the seven acts on the current bill , and Anger and Packer retaliated by panning him in a letter they addressed to him in care of his paper . Another case of criticising critics . The Hotel Dyckman , Minneapolis , writes letters to the artists soliciting their patronage and it offers a special rate to the profession . It is really a first-class hotel and our whole bill , from the headliner down , stopped there . It is fully as good as the Radisson , in my estimation . I have stopped at both . The Radiss...

PENCILINGS By J . ALDRICH LIBBEY Tom Carmody is another of the enthusiastic boosters for the N . V . A . Membership Drive . I understand the Drive for members has exceeded all expectations . Tis well , brothers . Tis well . The State-Lake Theatre is still living up to its reputation . Capacity prevails daily . Just a few words concerning Charles G . Kilpatrick , the eminent athlete and the man who won undying fame by pedaling down the steps of the Capitol , in Washington , on a bicycle . This would be deemed remarkable if a man had two limbs , but in his case it was only one limb . It was a superhuman accomplishment . Mr . Kilpatrick , by the way , is an ardent admirer of all things N . V . A . He is always boosting its principles to the artists he comes in contact with .
