EDITORIAL THE HEART OF AN ACTOR It is at this season of the year that the real heart of the actor is revealed . By actor we mean all the wonderful men and women , whose profession it is to entertain the great American public . . . What would Christmas for thousands of New York s poor be without the aid of the actor ? How could benefits be conducted ? Who else would . give as generously of their effort and their time to aid their fellow man ? Some people believe that it means nothing to an actor to play a benefit It means more than you imagine . The life of a performer is short and they must make enough while they can to last through the years when they can no longer work . For this reason they must make use of all their talents while they can . A performance is a big physical and mental effort for any performer , no matter how easy it may seem . Every extra show takes so much more out of their lives . They really give-more than mere money—they give of their physical selves . The wri...
