"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 December 1920
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS What a lot of men think they know about women can be written on a postage stamp with a paint brush . If every little movement has a meaning all its own , what does the Shimmie mean ? It s funny that the life of Reilly is usually enjoyed by a Cohen or Levy . Baldness don t necessarily signify haviuB an over-supply of brains . Many a soft head can be found beneath a stiff hat . Love at first sight may be strong , but hate at first sight is stronger . A new seventeen-fifty hand-me-down is better than a hundred-dollar secondhand . Ambition is half th ? battle won . He who always keeps praising himself &gt; s always ready to take an encore . A woman s last resort are tears .

ONE OF THE FIVE - - - - by Lee Barth [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 December 1920
ONE OF THE FIVE - - - - by Lee Barth With a womans concern and fast pulsing heart And the hunger of fame in her breast , She stood quite immobile and gased at the gems , As they lay there peacefully at rest . . Dear God , give me energy and faith in my cause As for members I seek in this drive ; I care not for riches nvr palatial home , Just let me be one of the five ! How oft in my dreams have I ventured abroad And gased on the castles of old , Where legends were written and poets sang praise , And the sunsets were always pure gold . To be fair with Alladin and his famed mystic lamp , Id care naught if he now were alive ; I could feel myself wrapped in Celestial shrouds , If I could be one of the five ! Ill sidestep illusions and forge on ahead , N . V . A . s Ill enlist by the score . With a good iron will and a smile to back it , Ill work like I ne er worked before . A jewel on my bosom will be gleaming , My reward for the membership drive , A token to guard with envious lust—N ....

N . V . A . SPORTITUS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 December 1920
N . V . A . SPORTITUS DRIVES &amp; PUTTS Golf is no longer considered a rich mans game , but it is still thought of pretty much as a sectional game , whose habitat is the effete East . The East , at any rate , has so considered- it . A New York newspaper takes occasion to show the error of that view according to the New Orleans States , which says : Taking as its text the National Open Championship Meet at Toledo some weeks ago . Of the seventy or more players who participated in that meet , nearly half of them came from the West . The fact is , of course , that golf is played all over the country . It knows neither section nor sex nor social station nor age . It is probably Played more in the West because there is more room to play it in , and western men , perhaps , have a bit more boyish vigor and the spirit of play . It really may become in time , as the quoted paper suggests , the national game ; it is certainly a close second now . The quality of •a Golf Club is known ...

Albee , Palace Theatre Building , New York City . Dear Sir : It is with great pleasure that I wish to bring to your attention a little incident that happened while playing the Poll Circuit . Last week , while playing Polis Palace Theatre in Springfield , Mass ., my dressing room was broken into , and my silk shirt and several other articles were stolen . The manager , Mr . Gordon Wrighter , did everything In his power to find the culprit , but was unsuccessful ; and without my asking him to make good , I was agreeably surprised this morning to receive a check covering the amount of my claim . It is not so much the money , but the spirit of brotherly love displayed by the manager . I have been in the profession a great many years and have lost things on several occasions , but this is the first time I was ever reimbur...
