Feminine Fancies and Foibles [Newspaper Article] — Player — 26 January 1912
Feminine Fancies and Foibles By Cady Whaley SHOPPING for two or three hundred people at a time is a little different from purchasing what my lady wishes for her own wardrobe , is the conclusion I arrived at after investigating how the large musical comedy and burlesque companies are supplied , as well as individual players and performers , who must have a good supply of each article and must , know where they can get an exact duplicate on short notice . Among other people in the city , the John Daniels concern are large importers and retailers of silks , satins , tights , etc . For example , they take an order , or receive the plates , and fit out a whole chorus , or all the show girls , with tights , stockings , and satin , for dresses and the same for shoes , parasols , gloves and everything to match . From plates they make up the hats desired . If the stockings , gloves , or silks or satins are not the shade wanted , they dye them the color desired . Then they have gold and silve...
PLAYING SMALL TIME [Newspaper Article] — Player — 26 January 1912
PLAYING SMALL TIME By AL . F . HAHBIS . As one who has played the small time , both of years ago , known as the concert halls , and that of the present day , I speak not only as an experienced artist , but from close observation of theatricals in general . While I de-plore-the fact , it is the truth that many cases of mistreatment reported by . artists are directly due to their own poor judgment or misbehavior . I have-on several occasions happened in different theatres-on . Monday morning waiting for rehearsal when some act came in , looked the house over , and , regardless of who was standing- around , - remark : Gee , what a dump I Dont lets work it . Right then and there you ve started something . The manager hears of it and naturally he has a chip on his shoulder , and you wonder what makes him grouchy . I saw one act cancelled before they opened for this same remark . The manager wanted to know if they really meant it when they said , Don t lets work it . But they didnt mean i...

DOING THE RIGHT THING [Newspaper Article] — Player — 26 January 1912
DOING THE RIGHT THING From Thomas Aj _ Moser we have received a . communication requesting enlightenment on the subject of the Yankee Comedy Four . Mr . Moser is manager of an act which has adopted that title , but before using it he would like to know if there is another act using it . In that event he would like to adopt the title of the Mikado Four , if that is not already appropriated . If there are at present any artists using these titles he would like to hear of it , that he may adopt a name which will not infringe upon anybody . These honorable methods invite admiration for Mr . Moser , and if they were adopted by some others the conflict of names and titles among professionals would soon be eliminated .
