LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS Artists Who Have Grievances of Any Kind are I nvited to Write HOW ARTISTS CAN DO THEIR PART SAN JOSE , CAL ., Jan . 22 . Mr . E . F . Albee , New York City . Dear Sir : r In current issues of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , we read many wonderful eulogies to the managers who are making Vaudeville a pleasurable institution for the artist . There is another side to this story which has been sadly neglected in my opinion , and that is the co-operation of the artists with the managers , in supporting the good cause and enjoying the benefits derived from joining the N . V . A . . 1 wish to cite one instance in which the true contrast of the past and present are shown . At the Hippodrome Theatre in our city this week is Mr .

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 February 1921
EDITORIAL PROMOTION A few weeks ago the executive of a big motion picture concern called all of his district managers into the New York office and electrified them with three startling announcements . One was that the office of district manager ¦ was to be abolished . The second was that one of their number , a quiet little fellow from Chicago , was to be made general sales manager of the corporation . The third announcement affected a young chap from down in the southwest and he was the most surprised man in the room when he heard that he was to be made personal representative of the president of the concern . Asked later for an explanation of his two unexpected promotions the executive said : I caught those two men with the goods on . I ve been watching them . And what happened in that firm is happening in other firms all over the land every day in the year . Executives of big concerns invariably possess a rare ability to judge men . The employee who does a noteworthy deed and rus...

WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 February 1921
WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE HARRY JACKSON I had the pleasure of playing for Manager Gordon Wrighter , of Polls Theatre in Springfield , Mass ., recently . During the engagement I lost a pair of spectacles . A small item , I admit , but the big part of the story is the following : Mr . Wrighter took up the search for njy lost specs after I had left the town and not only ran down the culprit , but sent me in cash the value of the missing article . In my opinion , that is a specific instance of an improved condition . It proved to me that manager and artist are anxious to cement good will . With all of his daily routine ahead of him , Mr . Wrighter found time to investigate my case . NELLA WALKER CLARKE Though I am no longer connected with the profession , I still retain my membership in the N . V . A .

Well , said John , to a VAUDEVILLE NEWS reporter , I dont know that I am so regular , I have my faults , too , you know . I just try to do the right thing by everybody . Artists have been my study . I guess it is because I like em . Many years before I started to work for Percy Williams , and that was over 15 years ago , I traveled on the road with shows myself . The hard knocks I had was enough to make me realize that the actors i who play here have the same rebuffs I experienced . The chap I feel sorry for is the one who shows up grouchy after a long jump .
