I am playing one of the split- weeks of the Junior Orpheum circuit , in neighborhood sections of Chicago , the Lincoln Hippodrome on the north side and the American , in the heart of Chicagos densely populated west side .

I had been confined to my bed for six days prior to my opening at the Lincoln , and I will not forget the words of courage and help I received from Mr . McGowen .

WHO LOST A RING ? Editor VAUDEVILLE NEWS : A ring found in the Davis Theatre the other day back stage is in my possession awaiting a claimant . It evidently- belongs to an artist . Perhaps THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS as a medium might restore it to its rightful owner . It is silver and on the face of it there is an enameled device in which the following appears : Baptized by fire . N . N . Y . G . 14 . . On- one- side is the monogram U . S ., and on the other the American Eagle and Banner . It no doubt belongs to some artist who has served in the war . I will have it kept in my safe , pending your efforts to locate the rightful owner . Yours very truly , EUGENE L . CONNELLY , Manager , Davis Theatre , Pittsburgh , Pa .

"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 31 December 1920
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS Seeing is believing , but we see a lot of people we cant believe . The saying : Theres plenty of good fish left in the sea , is true . Theres the best man for example . Solitaire is a great game—but who likes to get up these cold mornings to shut the windows , when you can just as easily have the wife do it ? The less a . woman knows about a man , the better off the man is . To cry over spilled milk is old fashioned—the latest , is crying over spilled booze .
