WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 11 March 1921
WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE FRANK FRABITO The artist •of today is respected more than ever . Many years ago laymen considered it almost a disgrace to associate with people of the stage . The narrow-minded believed the entire profession- was made up of wicked and immoral men and women . Today the situation is different . My partner and myself have pleasant memories of a trip , we made throughout the country last season . In a great many of the cities , strangers , who recognized us after seeing us at the local theatre , approached us and invited us to dine with them . Some invited us to their homes . All of this is due : to the fact that the artists of the present day respect their profession . so much that they command respect from others . LILLIAN WEST At the Harlem Opera House , in New York City , I found a wonderful aggregation of people who underderstood . the meaning of good fellowship and courtesy even better than the authors of our dictionaries . : From t...

IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE USE OF BAGGAGE LABELS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE USE OF BAGGAGE LABELS The gummed paper baggage labels on trunks last for so brief a period of time that Mr . Albee has had stencils made by means of which the design can be painted permanently on the trunks in exactly the style , size and colors of the printed label . This is a permanent and much more satisfactory method from every standpoint . The stencils , together with tubes of red , black and white paint and three brushes , are being sent to every vaudeville theatre in the United States and Canada . In a short while the use of the stencils will no doubt be universal and artists are advised to have the label painted on all of their baggage at the first opportunity . There have been many instances of the advantage of using the label and two particularly striking cases are cited in the correspondence below : ST . LOUIS , SOUTHWESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY St . Louis , March 1 , 1921 . Mr . Edward F . Albee , President , B . F . Keith Circuit of Theat...

Mr . E . F . Albee , New York City . My dear Mr . Albee : On the subject of baggage , I wish to call your attention to the two enclosures which I believe are unusual instances of the sincere co-operation that your campaign on baggage handling has brought about , showing conclusively that by giving these people a little notice and credit , we are bound to get good results —in fact—the best they can give us . Yours very truly , ( Signed ) GEO . F . SIMPSON . THE BALTIMORE &amp; OHIO RAILROAD COMPANY Louisville , Ky .,...
