VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES By BERT LEVY No . 5—RAE SAMUELS Here is a picture of Rae Samuels ( on the left ) taken with a friend on a farm just outside of Vancouver , B . C , during an Orpheum tour . If I live to be a hundred I will never forget Rae Samuels , for in her friendship she rings as true as steel , and I have been the lucky recipient of her friendship . It was during the first year of the war that Miss Samuels and I were called upon to sponsor many soldier entertainments on the Orpheum tour , and during this time she firmly planted herself in the hearts of many maimed lads , and she will stay in their hearts for there has never been a less selfish worker in their cause . The Blue Streak of Vaudeville , Rae Is called . Well , she has another streak that everybody who knows her talks about and that is a streak of love for her fellow-men and women , the most valuable attribute of any human being . Rae—here s to you—you re real !

WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE CHARLES CHIC SALE The entire atmosphere of vaudeville has changed for the better since I entered the business twelve years ago . When I look back to those dark days I can surely appreciate what I have to-day . The harmony and good will are wonderful . Many years ago the artists would take their troubles to Tony Pastor , who was at that time their best friend . In many a conversation back stage , I have heard Mr . Albee referred to as the modern Tony Pastor . When troubles , no matter how small , visit us , we can sit down and pen a note to him asking for advice and we will always get a _ square deal and prompt consideration . I realize that no one man can do it all . The movement is universal . FLORENCE REYNOLDS Scene : Keiths theatre in Jersey City . Time : Rehearsal . A fresh young man enters and proceeds to shout into a really courteous property man s ears , a bawling out for no other reason than that props had failed to have a pal...

"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS A sketch without a telephone is like an acrobat without a handkerchief . c - If you keep , your thoughts clean and young your face will reflect the same . ¦ A man without an enemy in this World seldom amounts to anything . All holes cannot be made in Par - . Neither can all shows be stopped . - •; ¦ • • ¦ - l ¦ f ¦ u——1 To give drily what you are paid for is to . never , earn more than you are worth . There is no excuse for egotism . Clothes make the- man , was never intended . to- apply to a married man . They should say : Clothes break the man . If you can t boost , don t knockknocking is the deadliest form of a boomerang . The deese , dem and dose are fast dying out . Speaking paradoxically , how would it sound to wish someone a Happy Blue Year ?

BROADWAY HEARSAY By WALTER WINCHELL GOSH ! Mrs . Chas . Leonard Fletcher is entitled to the celluloid frying pan for possessing a keen eye . The wife of the popular golf enthusiast culled the following ad from a London theatrical column : Engagement wanted—small part such as dead body or outside shouts . THE WEEKLY SPECIAL . People who demonstrate graphaphone records are not the only ones who put on airs . NICE BOY , HIM To Kenneth Marceau , good-natured dispenser of ducats at B . F .

Wl M M E ~ NH [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
Wl M M E ~ NH By Y . Y . Y . Dorothy Kenton is a beautiful blonde . She wore a blue and silver taffeta gown . Dorothy , you have a charming personality , and you know how to play that old banjo ! Josephine Harmon has lost none of her individuality and pep . She went on at the Club as a single and registered a genuine hit . Outside of the dance , Joe , you re as graceful as a fawn . That purple and silver embroidered gown is very becoming . You deserved the ovation you got . A cute little barefooted dancer and a bevy of good looking girls with real voices helped Harry Truax hang up a permanent tablet for himself in the memory of N . V . A . audiences . The novelty of his operatic offering is cleverly conceived . It was one of the most pretentious singing acts ever seen at the Club . Dode Phelps , of Newhoff &amp; Phelps , never looked prettier than she did in an evening gown of white georgette trimmed in blue of the same material and red rosebuds and with a large sash of Mrs ...
WITH THE JUNIOR N . V . A . 'S [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 March 1921
WITH THE JUNIOR N . V . A . S JACK WILFRED MOSSMAN Jack is fifteen weeks old and the son of Mr . and Mrs . Earl Mossman , two of the most enthusiastic members of the N . V . A ., and regular visitors at the Club this season , as Mr . Mossman is playing in the Nora Bayes show and therefore within easy distance of Forty-sixth Street . In the picture , Jack is all bundled up just as if it were a cold winter , but this Is explained by the fact that the picture was taken on the day of the big snow , a few weeks ago , and the snow gave Jack an opportunity to insist on wearing his new winter togs . Apparently , he is going after his daddy s record as a Beau Brummel .
TO VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS IN REFERENCE TO THEIR ACTS , PICTURES , COSTUMES ; APPEARANCE ON THE STAGE , ETC . [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 25 March 1921
TO VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS IN REFERENCE TO THEIR ACTS , PICTURES , COSTUMES ; APPEARANCE ON THE STAGE , ETC . Besides being printed in the trade papers , these letters have been sent to every manager in the United States and Canada and to every artist . TO VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS : , Vaudeville has taken such tremendous strides in the past ten-years that the patrons of the theatres are getting more critical each day , and on account of the high standard set , my advice to artists is to keep up to that standard . Even an act with fair material can get by many times with fine wardrobe , appearing in dainty costumes , carefully studied , and as up . to date as possible . All this has an interest to the audience . The first impression of the public , in looking at the pictures in the lobby before the act comes to the theatre , and during its engagement , has a good or bad effect according to the . pictures . If the pictures-are poorly taken , costumes ordinary , and there is no effort on the arti...
