PUBLICITY By Francis P . ONeill Olympia Theatre Lynn , Mass . Now that the , vaudeville artists throughout this country and Canada have an official publication , THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , which is bound to help them materially in their daily work , I would like to make another suggestion which , in my opinion , will riot-only help-to cement the relations between rnanaager and artist , but will help the artist in the various cities they play . Why would it not be a good plan for the Press Agents of every vaudeville . house in the country to form a social organization to be known , say . as The Vaudeville Press Agents Club , to be made up only of persons who do the press and publicity work of the vaudeville theatres ? The object of this club would be to bringPress Agents in closer , contactwith one another , to exchange ideas and to make plans whereby-press fiotices can be used in the Various daily papers that will be of benefit to the artist . Meetings could be held say every six months ...

THE MANAGERS'FORUM [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 14 May 1920

THE MANAGERSFORUM I HAVE NEVER MET THE MANAGER—BUT ! By HARRY T . JORDAN General Manager , Keith s , Philadelphia It is not an unusual thing to hear the above remark used , in starting a criticism of a hotel , theatre or any institution catering to the public in large numbers . Now , more . than H . T . JOBDAN ever , the reputation of a theatre and its management rests largely in . the , hands of the employees with whorh the patrons come in personal contact , and they can either make or break him . - A courteous box-office man , a smiling usher , can win ; more pat-, ronage for a theatre than , all the newspaper advertising in the world . The manager who fails to impress this fact upon his co-workers , from the cleaners to the executives , is making a serious mistake . The successful manager no longer says I have so-and-so working for me , but says instead I . have so-and-so working with me . The satisfied employee on this basis takes as much pride and interest in the institution , ...

IN APPRECIATION OF THEIR EFFORTS To the Artists Whose Names Appear Below : I have asked for and received the following list of members of the N .-V . A . who have appeared there on Sunday nights , contributing their services to the enjoyment of their fellow-members . It is very gratifying to see the interest taken by these artists who have done their bit toward making the Sunday night affairs successful and in adding to the happiness of their fellow craftsmen . I have attended the Sunday night functions on two occasions , and in my entire forty-five years experience in the theatrical business , I have no hesitancy in saying that of all the affairs I have attended in the different cities and countries where my travels have taken me during this time , I have never witnessed such general contentment and enjoyment and such a home-like feeling as I saw on these two visits .
