ROOSEVELT [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 25 February 1921
ROOSEVELT XTE was found faithful over a few things and he was made ruler over many ; he cut his own trail clean and straight and millions followed him toward the light . • I He was frail ; he made himself a tower of strength . He was timid ; he made himself a lion of courage . He was a dreamer ; he became one of the great doers of all time . • J Men put their trust in him ; women found a champion in him ; kings stood in awe of him , but the children made him their playmate . Cj [ He broke a nation s slumber with his cry , and it rose up . He touched the eyes of blind men with a flame that gave them vision . Souls became swords through him ; swords became servants of God . If He was loyal to his country and he exacted loyalty ; he loved many lands , but he loved his own best . &lt; I He was terrible in battle , but tender to the weak ; joyous and tireless , being free from self-pity ; clean with a cleanness that cleansed the air like a gale .

TO ALL VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS : [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 25 February 1921
TO ALL VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS : THERE SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE DOUBT IN THE ARTISTS MINDS AS TO THE USE AND VALUE OF THE LABELS ON THEIR BAGGAGE . . I THINK THIS IS ALL CAUSED BY SOME OF THE ARTISTS NOT READING CAREFULLY THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , WHERE EVERY DETAIL HAS BEEN SET FORTH . I RECEIVE , ON AN AVERAGE , TWENTY LETTERS A WEEK FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA IN REFERENCE TO ARTISTS LOSING ONE OR TWO SHOWS ON ACCOUNT OF THE NON-DELIVERY OF THEIR BAGGAGE . THIS HAS BEEN CAUSED , IN EVERY INSTANCE , BY DELAY IN GETTING THE TRUNKS ON THE TRAIN WITH THE ARTISTS , OR WHERE THEY HAVE CHANGED FROM ONE ROAD TO ANOTHER . NO DOUBT , IN SOME INSTANCES , THESE TRUNKS WOULD HAVE GONE WITH THE ARTISTS IF THEY HAD SEEN THAT THEY WERE PUT ON THE TRAIN . THE VALUE OF THE LABEL AND THE CO-OPERATION OF THE RAILROADS , IS IN THE FACT THAT THESE LABELS ARE TO BE RECOGNIZED IN ORDER THAT THE ARTISTS MAY HAVE THEIR BAGGAGE TO OPEN ON MONDAY OR THURSDAY , AS THE . CASE MAY BE . IT ISNOT OBL...
