Keith s Theatre in Dayton , Ohio ,-was urged by the Boy Scouts of that city to put forth his best efforts in arranging a collection to swell their funds , to aid the crippled children of Dayton . Mr . Weed was notified on Sunday morning last and before the night arrived he turned over to the Boy Scouts $ 104 . 52 . The collection was made up of pennies , nickles and dimes . Mr . Weed is an example of a real man . He represented the theatrical profession when he helped the organization of Boy Scouts , and he made us all feel proud . Sure enough after our initial preformance at the Davis in this city , we ( The Hitland Company ) received the usual slip with cut that out , etc ., etc . from the house manager . We had no idea what it was all about until we were informed later that it was all a mistake . That made us feel so much better as we are now proud of the fact that we are Pittsburg Proof . Now ...

le H I C A G G By J . ALDRICH LIBBEY I wish to acknowledge a latter from Jack Wilbur regarding his wonderful time at the New Years dinner tendered to the whole hill at the Illinois Theatre , Chicago Heights . Any increases in baggage charges will be paid by the management of the Illinois Theatre , according to Jack Wilgur . The Star Hippodrome is a work of art , Jake Sternard should be commended ^ for his efforts in making this theatre an institution . The theatre is located on Milwaukee Ave .

I am well and happy and trust you are the same . The California weather is still with us here . Rae Samuels is doing the best act of her remarkable- career . Lillian Shaw is also doing big at the local theatres . Jimmy ONeal of the Pantages office here is sure a live wire . Very popular fellow in the...

•MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS He who hesitates is lost , but she who hesitates is won . Men are judged by their deeds ; woman by her miss-deeds . * Many a man on kissing his wife thinks business before pleasure . Silence very often :, makes more noise than speech . .

She has a world of pen and she has a jazz band than whom there are none whomer . It was a genuine hit Wing Toy , making an initial eastern ap . pearance , wore two gorgeous Chinese costumes , sang prettily and played the Hawaiian guitar like a native of Honolulu . When she removed her wig at the finish it was a knockout . And , or yes , Wing Toy is a real yoedler along with the other accomplishments . Lots of luck in the east Wing . We couldn t help but notice Karyl Norman at one of the tables out front when Ming Toy went on at the club , and while the act is similar to Karyls in many ways , we all noticed the latters sportsmanshi p in heartily applauding the Chinee . The Eva Nazar Trio are three pretty and talented girls who helped fill out a wonderful Bohemian Bill . They dressed in Spanish hoop skirt gowns of burnt or ....
PLACE LABELSON TRUNKS IN THE PROPER MANNER AND SEE THAT THEY STAY THERE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 January 1921
PLACE LABELSON TRUNKS IN THE PROPER MANNER AND SEE THAT THEY STAY THERE January 21 ,-1921 . TO ALL MANAGERS OF VAUDEVILLE HOUSES : - . I have had a number of complaints from different managers and artists , stating that the labels came off the trunks , especially on patent leather ones . I have adopted , on our . circuit , in addition to the mucilage on the labels , the putting on of some paste , and then after the label is on , giving it . a careful coat of shellac , running half an inch over the border of the label . This , preserves it against water and tearing . This will necessitate having a pot of paste arid some shellac on your stage , and appointing some one to . look after it , and also to see that any baggage , the labels on which are defaced , have new ones placed • thereon . Should you need additional labels , please write in for them . Won t you please do this , and assist in carrying out this very necessary improvement ? The railroad presidents have been most kind , an...

ARTISTSWHO DRINK SUBSTITUTES FOR LIQUOR DO SO AT THE RISK OF THEIR LIVES ! [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 January 1921
ARTISTSWHO DRINK SUBSTITUTES FOR LIQUOR DO SO AT THE RISK OF THEIR LIVES ! So many reports have been received by the VAUDEVILLE MANAGERS PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION , of artists missing performances , with consequent financial loss to the managers and themselves , not to mention the physical risk involved , as a result of drinking various substitutes for liquor , that it is time a warning was issued on this subject . Artists who travel from one state to another , risk their lives by drinking any of the various concoctions that have made their appearance since the beginning of Prohibition . Only recently , two acts on one bill in Texas , were sick in bed and unable to show up at the theatre where they were playing , after having drunk some stuff sold to them as whiskey . No other acts were available in that territory on short notice ; consequently , the manager had to put up with a curtailed bill and the artists were out medical fees and probably permanently injured constitutions , as a r...
