CHOOSERS DELIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Player — 12 January 1912
CHOOSERS DELIGHT By H . C . G . I joined a Philadelphia club , The Water Wagon Lodge . We took a trip this New Year On a water-wagon barge . Way down on the Ohio , How it made me sigh—Oh ! When I thought of all the little cafe checks that I owe . Pass word it was H „ 0 . I couldnt forget that ; But once when I got off the barge I saw they had me flat ; Had given me the slip , Because I lost my grip And now I m back again so let er rip . CHORUS I stayed on until we struck Louisville . I never liked Kentucky , in that State Im not lucky , So I m now full back in Phil . Let me give you a tip ,, betwixt the cup and lip , Dont sit up there a-braggin when you re on the water-wagon , Cause you might forget the grip . A famous aviator says he will quit flying . Many have thought of this before but not while on terra-firma . The two girls in Kismet that enter , supposedly nude , a pool of water on the stage , never had a dress rehearsal . A rube looked at a string of taxi , lined up before a...
HARRY LAUDER LAMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Player — 12 January 1912
HARRY LAUDER LAMENTS Harry Lauder has allowed himself to be interviewed since he returned from America . He says some mighty nice things about his tour in this country , and incidentally shows that he has a grouch against England . In his interview he said : I much prefer American managers .. At home they want to take everything and give nothing . English managers never believe my doctor s certificate , but send down their own medical man to see if I am shamming . Some of these managers have made fortunes out of me , but if they meet me on the street they never say Good evening , glad to see you . I have found things better in America , but you see I had the advantage of going there as a free agent I have had paid to me in America $ 2 , 750 a week , but I have had my own expenses to pay out of that . In England they think I am making a lot of money out of them , but I am making nothing . I have been off ten weeks from England to fulfill this American engagement , and I had to pay th...
SHUBERTS REDUCE [Newspaper Article] — Player — 12 January 1912
SHUBERTS REDUCE The Shubert Brothers are now trying the policy of reduced prices at many of their theaters through the country and if successful , in the cities where it is now being tried , will continue the same cut in their houses all through the country . In St . Louis the evening prices at the Garrick theater have been reduced to one dollar for best seats and a flat rate of fifty cents adopted for matinees . Overnight , the first company to play at the new prices , did an enormous business and it looks as if the reduction would be permanent . The claim is made that the opposition from vaudeville and picture houses , at small rates of admission , has so cut into the business of the big theaters that some radical change was necessary .

GOLDEN OPINIONS By GEO . FULLER GOLDEN Speaking of your anniversay number of THE PLAYER one thing was particularly noticeable which lifted it far over and far above all its cof 46 ? poraries : that was the spirit of brotherly-love which is so abundantly manifested . , . , . r n t It is in this spirit alone that a man may be truly superior to his fellows ot earth and it will always be manifested in the expression of his work . _ _ In sensation we may be all kindred of Old Adam or of Darwin s missing link ; take your choice . But those of us who have learned to love are truly brothers indeed . . ... . . , c -n . Whenever I see a man whose actions are all harmonious and whose laitn seems to radiate the light of heaven on earth and whose voice is sweet with sympathy I always feel as if I am in the presence of a king whose progenitors loved each other with a pure and holy devotion . „ .. . . , , . There is only one royal family on earth after all ; it is comprised of the children of love...

The machine is an absolute necessity for the benefit of Mr . Golden s health , as his physician has given him strict orders to be constantly in the open . He rides from fifty to sixty miles a day—in fact , he almost lives in the machine , and I wish to state that it has been a great help to him thus far , as he is able to enjoy the fresh air at the nearby beaches . I would like to mention that the machine is self-supporting , through being out on hire . There is a card posted in every theater in Los Angeles , giving full information relative to engaging same , and in that manner a revenue is derived which pays the running expenses of the automobile . I am carrying back...
