MANY HOUSES GET LAUNDRY EQUIPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
MANY HOUSES GET LAUNDRY EQUIPMENT Electric Washing Machines , Electric Irons and Ironing Board For Use of Artists The instantaneous success and popularity of the electric washing machine installed by Manager W . S . Canning in the Palace Theatre , Manchester , N . H ., for the use of visiting artists , has lead to many other managers adopting the plan and it would not be at all surprising to see a majority of all vaudeville houses equipped with appliances of this description before long . The unsatisfactory work and prices , not to mention the delay and frequent loss of wearing apparel , that characterize the average laundry prompted Manager Canning to try this innovation . It caught on with the artists at once . It is now . in almost constant use and frequently every artist on the bill does all of his or her own laundry work with the equipment and facilities provided by the management . An electric washing machine , an electric iron , an ironing board and a drying room , will short...

MANAGER APPRECIATES SPIRIT OF ARTISTS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
MANAGER APPRECIATES SPIRIT OF ARTISTS That managers are deeply appreciative of the spirit of co-operation and fairness shown by artists when it comes to arranging their bills is shown by the following interesting letter from a well known Pacific coast manager : ¦ ¦ SAN FRANCISCO , CAL ., Mar . 10 . Mr . Glenn Condon , Editor THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , New York City . Dear Mr . Condon : — Just a word in appreciation of the noticeable improvement in the matter of acts being more obliging and cooperative when it becomes really necessary to _ place them . in a different spot on the bill than they prefer , or when they are asked to cut , or add a couple of minutes in order to keep the show within time schedule . The time was when nearly every act resented any such move by the manager , but I have noticed an , everincreasing improvement along these lines . Only recently -when I asked Mr . Alf Grant at Sunday rehearsal what his running time was , he replied pleasantly : Anything you- want , fro...

LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
LETTERS CONCERNING IMPROVED CONDITIONS Artists Who Have Grievances of Any Kind are Invited to Write SELFISHNESS February 20 , 1921 . Dear Mr . Albee : — My sister and I are just finishing a very pleasant engagement over the Poll time . Managers everywhere seem to be exerting themselvs to make the acts comfortable and their stay at each particular house an agreeable one . But has it ever occurred to you how much the success or failure of the manager s effort is caused by the attitude of the acts themselves ? In this connection I wish to call your attention to the following instance . We played Poli s at Waterbury the last half of last week . They had booked in a road show to play there Friday of our stay and as is their custom transferred the vaudeville bill to Winsted , Conn ., for that night . We went over at noon by train but were brought back at night after the performance by machines . There was much complaint among a couple of the acts as to whether or not the cars would be clo...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
EDITORIAL DRESSING ROOM THEFTS In spite of all the precautions that have been taken to prevent dressing room thefts , the depredations continue . Most theatres now have signs posted back stage , warning artists that they must lock the door of their dressing room whenever they leave it , and the majority of them observe this rule . But there are other ways for unscrupulous persons to pilfer the money and other valuables of artists . Take , for instance , a case that was reported to the N . V . A . a few days ago . A young fellow , claiming to be a vaudeville artist out of work , got into the good graces of a certain act and made his plea so effective that they furnished _ him a room and meals , and promised to take him into New York with them and help him procure work . He studied their actions closely , and one afternoon while they were on the stage doing their act , he lifted the dressing room keys from the bathrobe of one of the members of the act , opened the door of their room ,...
