A robbery , one of the most daring ever committed in this city , took place Monday night in the office of the Grand Opera House ( Junior Orpheum ) here , when two bandits held up Elmer E .

At the time , the house was filled to capacity . The robbers obtained $ 4 , 000 , the Sunday and Saturday receipts .

THIS HOUSE " DARK" FOR 1 , 200 YEARS ! [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 December 1920
THIS HOUSE DARK FOR 1 , 200 YEARS ! The above Interesting snapshot was taken by the globe-trotting artist , Edgar L . Hocking , formerly known In vaudeville as Les H . King , of the team of King &amp; Millard , who appeared In the sketch , A Pair of Liars . Mr . Hocking writes concerning the snapshot , as follows : This is a picture of the Theatre Heroditus Atticus In Athens , Greece . They havent had an attraction there for some time—about 1 , 200 years or so , the reason being that all the managers , actors and agents formerly with the theatre , have gone to a place on the other side of the river called the Styx , and as nobody seems to be able to bring them back , they must be doing better where they are . One thing I noticed was that there is an underground passage leading to another theatre a little way along the same road called the Bacchus Theatre , almost proving that the poor actors must have had to play two houses in one night . Whether they got extra pay for this ...

EDITORIAL I [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 December 1920
EDITORIAL I NEWS THAT IS NEWS Coment has been made by someone with the best interests of the publication at heart , that THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS does not carry enough- news —that there have been too many poems and literary effusions in our columns of late .

If , by giving space to worthy literary efforts of artists , we can encourage them in their ambitions along this \ line , we will have ful...

WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE ^ HARRY MASTERS HELEN STOREY A . C . ASTOR HAZEL HARRINGTON I can recall no happier incident than one at the Garrick Theatre in Wilmington recently . It was our break in week . We arrived in that * city one day before the opening . .. ; IjThe company , including myself ,- were more or less nervous about the initial performance . We decided upon a dress rehearsal . The stage crew happened around , and they hung the scenery . gave us all the effects needed , and did numerous favors . All of this for us , on a Sunday , their day of rest . I shall never forget that favor . Their kindness was a sample of the N . V . A . and V . M . P . A . harmony that prevails in vaudeville today . It is only recently that I entered Vaudeville . Previously I was in musical comedy , but I love Vaudeville . For a long time I only knew of the N . V . A . Club as a building , but since coming to town I cannot keep away from it . Just think , it only costs me ...
