EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 December 1920

EDITORIAL YOURSELF IN A MIRROR Are . you a person of moods ? Most of us are included in that classification . No doubt you have talked many times with people whose general attitude and conversation left you in a depressed state . You have left them thinking : Hes a nice fellow all right , but why in the world doesnt he say cheerful and encouraging things to me ? He may be a very successful man , but the more important his position in life , in relation to you , the more depressed you will be after leaving his presence . Some peoples idea of greatness and executive ability is a carefully cultivated system of discounting the good work and good deeds of others . We have met employers who were careful never to praise anyone in their employ . On the contrary they proceeded on the theory that condemnation , or at best , absence of praise of the work of an employee , was the best method of getting better results . Such men rarely attain lasting success or fame . You no doubt have known man...

MUTILATED MUSIC SCORES _ . - [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 December 1920

MUTILATED MUSIC SCORES _ . - Sometime ago , I wrote a letter which was published in the VAUDEVILLE NEWS in reference to members of orchestras throughout the country mutilating the copies of the artists music . I have some other advice to offer at this time , arid this is to the artists . - My . attention ivas called this morning to . two copies of orchestrations belonging , to two different acts , which were so badly multilated- mac ituorchestra Reader had the greatest difficulty in deciphering them ., In one case , the leader s copy contained the introduction , which , instead of . beginning , as it . should have , at the top of the page commenced about the center of the nurriber , r then repeated itself in a very difficult manner as follows : One strain , ; . three times ; the top strain twice , and the third time omit the top strain and play the introduction . But the manuscript was so badly cut up and blue penciled that unless it was accompanied by an explanation frcm the artist...

PERSONALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 December 1920

PERSONALITIES Down in Atlanta , Ga „ at Loew s Theatre , they have a singing orchestra , who are very popular with the patrons . The ticker in the N . V . A . club misstated the final score of the Army-Navy football classic . A certain chap who had bet $ 50 even on the Army to win , collected the wager when the ticker said : Army Wins , Final Score 7-0 . Later when the correct score was sent over the wire he paid back the money to the rightful winner . But the laugh lies in the fact that he had already paid about forty dollars of the money to some of his creditors . The question is , would he have paid those debts if he had lost the first time ? Rita Greene , formerly of Winchell & Greene , will begin rehearsals with a Broadway production shortly . Billy Curtis tells the following : I was downstairs in the billiard parlor the other day watching a contest and right next to me sat an Englishman . A waiter passed by with a horses neck on a tray . My word I said the Englishm...

DONT GARRY BIRD OF PARADISE FEATHERS IN OHIO Artists are warned not to wear on stage or street or have in their possession any Birds of Paradise or Aigrettes while in the State of Ohio . The following letter from Francis Renault explains why : Akron , Ohio , Nov . 28 . Mr . E . F . Albee , New York City , N . Y . My Dear Mr . Albee :. As * you know I have spent a fortune in my act for hats and gowns , especially one hat with three Birds of Paradise , costing me over $ 800 , which I featured in my act . While playing the Colonial Theatre , Akron , Ohio , last week I was served with a warrant for having Birds of Paradise in my possession , and they took them away from me . I was then taken by the officers representing the Game Warden of the State of Ohio to the Court House and was fined $ 214 . 60 , which I paid , thereby making my total loss over $ 1 , 000 , and believe me , I am very much upset over the affair . 1 want you to please warn my fellow artists not to have in their posses...

"LOEW-LYONS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 December 1920

LOEW-LYONS By JIMMY LYONS MINNEAPOLIS , MINN ., Nov . 21 . I do not intend to talk about the hotels or restaurants from here out , as Ed Maishall has covered same thoroughly in his column while touring- the Orpheum circuit . I will , however , cover same in such places where he has not played . Mr . Al Gillis , manager here of the PalaceTheatre , and whom I have the pleasure of knowing over three years is certainly one swell fellow . Every artist who ever played for him can testify to same . He formerly managed the Pan house here . . The crew and orchestra arc both a great bunch of boys who know their business from A to Z . I neglected in my St . Louis article to mention Col . H . N . Morgan , Superintendent of the City Work House . The Colonel is a former artist and is familiarly known to hundreds as Brocky Morgan . The Colonel and Mrs . Bessie F . Morgan—his wife—were with H .

Yet our . show was good . Very good , thanks to Mr . Vincent . Lumberjacks predominated in the audience . And take it from me , they w ere a good audience . They seemed to get the gist ot it all .
