BROTHERS-ALL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 24 December 1920

BROTHERS-ALL By JAMES GREENE The idea of co-operation runs throughout nature as illustrated in the work of the ants , whose colonies are the results of co-operative methods . The bee likewise is a symbol of intelligent association . Our solar system with its Central Sun and the Planets revolving around it , represents co-operation on a . magnificent scale . But the crowning example of co-operation is unfolded in the • fertilization -of the flowers through the activities of the bee . The flowers pay tribute to the bee in the form : of honey , and the bee in return depositsrather yellow pollen which fertilizes the flower . Here is a concrete example of give and take ; the flower gives honey , and takes pollen . Now if in the domain of nature , the principle of co-operation works so successfully , would it not be reasonable to expect results from its application to the field of human endeavor ? The N . V . A . stands for co-operation and is in reality an attempt to apply nature s metho...

EDITORIAL I [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 24 December 1920

EDITORIAL I CHRISTMAS IS there a Santa Claus ? The percentage of children who ask the question is decreasing each year , they tell us . The lads and lassies of our generation are prematurely wise . : And to many of them Christmas is not the period of suspense and excitement , followed by .-jbyousurealization , that most of us experienced when we were young . Rather is it the season for ; neckties , cigars and fountain pens . The illusion and the : sentiment of the old-time Christmas are slowly disappearing . The impelling story of the Babe in the Manger , the Three Wise Men , and the Star in the East , is becoming less and less associated with the Yiiletide season . And so it might , become in , a measure , with the stage . .. The tra T ditions and the illusions of our calling are being rudely handled by a few . There is too imu ch of . a tendency to bare to the world the professional secrets of artists . There is too pronounced ; an inclination on the part of newspapers to . refer ...

In those \ days many brave and talented women fought a great fight against the wretched conditions-on the road—but—one of the sweetest and bravest of them all was Allyn . Allyn was the feminine half , of course , of one of the daintiest acts in big-time vaudeville ; her clothes , her charm of manner i and , above all , her native refinement winning for her the respect ]| of everybody—that is , everybody but her partner in the act . [ He was a suave fellow with a disposition mean enough- to break the morale of any woman alive—but Allyn s , ^ and the harder he tried to bring her down to his level—the more he failed .

TO IDENTIFY VAUDEVILLE BAGGAGE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 31 December 1920

TO IDENTIFY VAUDEVILLE BAGGAGE One of the many good suggestions contained m the letters written by the various railroad executives to Mr . Albee , in answer to his request for more efficient handling of vaudeville artists baggage , was one stating that it would greatly facilitate matters if there was some method of placing a distinctive mark on all such baggage , so that train and station baggage men and others could tell at a glance that it was preferred baggage . To meet this suggestion it has been decided to print a sticker , in colors , and bearing the words : NATIONAL VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS . Liberal supplies of these will be available in a short . time in all vaudeville theatres and artists are urged to see that a sticker is placed on each piece of baggage wthout delay , as by doing this , they will insure prompt handling of the pieces by railroad people .
