OUT FRISCO WAY [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 December 1920

OUT FRISCO WAY By JACK STRATTON SAN FRANCISCO , Dec . 7 . Madge Wood , songster with The Spirit of Mardi Gras , Orpheum Circuit Act , took up the defense of women pipe smokers when she said , Its a calumny against our sex that women are condemned for drawing at the amber bit . Miss Wood assctrs she smokes an elegantly inlaid Chinese pipe— because its so much more ladylike than smoking cigarettes . No woman in Hankau , China , where I was raised , would think of touching a cigarette . Another member of . the Mardi Gras company , Helen Murray , shocked Powell Street habitues when she was discovered wearing the latest—the leg flask . A stray whirl of wind caught her skirts and then everyone looked . Got a kick in it ? asked one bystander . I should say not , retorted the indignant Miss Murray , nothing worse than perfumery .

The "STALLER"in Vaudeville [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 24 December 1920

The STALLERin Vaudeville December 9 , 1920 . / Dear Mr . Condon : I feel that the article sent by this Act from the West is worth publishing . I wish he had given me his name , as I think the only way that we are going to improve conditions is by coming out flat-footed on all questions and putting ourselves on record . I can readily understand why this act may have considered that he was giving some information which mi g ht reflect on him later , by the action of some agent or booking manager . While this article does not particularly state agents or booking man ^ agers , in my mind , it really refers to everyone doing business in vaudeville . The article is perfectly correct . There is , and has been , a lot of stalling . It continues at the present time , notwithstanding all the advice they have had to make no promises that they cannot fulfill , but to give a man a simple yes or no answer and that you will try to do the best you can for him but you cannot make any promises .

^STALLERS^ By DAMON RUNYON ( Copyright , 1920 , by the Star Company . ) Did you ever ask a man to do something for you , have him encourage you . to the point of keen expectancy , waste your time by keeping you calling back , land hanging around , only to find that he hasn t done anything , and probably never intended doing anything in the matter f A staller , a man who says yes , when in nine cases out of _ ten he means no , does- a lot of harm in the world . He can break your heart . He can embitter your life . I have gone looking for fobs in my time and been kept fooling away valuable hours by some pin-head who thought he was doing me a favor by encouraging me with his half yesses when he knew in his heart that he couldn t do anything for me . I have gone Ouiay from him thinking what a great fellow he was and what a goad old world it is , after all , with so many helping hands outstretched , only subsequently to learn that he never crooked a finger toward carrying out his promise...
