ISMAN HAS HIS SAY [Newspaper Article] — Player — 5 January 1912
ISMAN HAS HIS SAY Felix Isman , the daring real estate speculator , who dabbles in theatricals considerably , has read the statement of William Morris in which the latter gentleman stated that hereafter he would go it alone and would project the Harry Lauder show and other vaudeville stars on his own account . Mr . Isman in an interview becomes very indignant over this statement and vigorously denies that William Morris will have the chance to exploit the Lauder enterprise under his own banner . He claims that the enterprise was run under the direction of William Morris , Incorporated , and that he is one of the owners of that company and that he will have something to say about the matter , even if he has to say it in a court of law , before Mr . Morris can carry out his plans . With Harry Lauder as the principal asset of William Morris , Incorporated , he thinks it would be a crying shame if that valuable franchise was lost .
