I OUCH ! IT MUST BE RU-MA-T 1 CKS ! | [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 May 1920
I OUCH ! IT MUST BE RU-MA-T 1 CKS ! | By W . DAYTON WEGEFARTH ( Copyrighted ) Rheumatism seems to be The strangest ill of life to -me , And surely noting else can claim , By any other subtle name , As many pains of different kind To vex the body and the mind . No other pain has t ever been In agony to it akin , And nothing else that life endures Has half so many certain cures , . From salves and oils and peppermint , To leeches , splints and bandage lint . And yet its strange that science knows Not whence it comes nor where it goes ; But still we gulp empiric pills . To ease our twitching , twinging ills , And -try each welcome surcease new , As suffering folk are wont to &lt; do . They starve us now , and feed us then , ¦ Prescribe for us with active pen ; They blister us when they re in doubt , Or . failing , try to freeze it out ; The treatment is quite obvious—They re merely practicing on us J Rheumtic folk should unionise . And all their torments standardises A Board ne...

TIPS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 May 1920
TIPS From R . H . Beattie , Palace , Cinnnati : It would not be a bad idea for lists to check up their press eets from time to time with the ess department , to verify the nning time on acts and also the ops and setting . The shows at is particular theatre run close schedule in order to handle e crowds and in a great many ses where an act is running conierably over the time on their ess sheet they will use the ariment that the press sheet is old one and not correct . On e question of props , sometimes great many props have been ought in from outside firms and 1 arrival the acts will say they not want to use them , and that e press sheet is wrong . This atter could easily be rectified by Peking up a few times during e season and seeing that your £ ss sheet is kept up to date . • Going to make the Orpheum CirJt this season ? ¦ then by all means take along e golf bag . and the bathing suit—- &gt; u will have two weeks . on San r ancisco bay , playing San .

" SMILE " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 May 1920
SMILE By WILLIAM H . QUAID Mgr . Proctors Fifth Ave . Theatre I dont think its a half bad idea to lay a little . emphasis on the word smile when wa are going over in our minds the factors most important for success around a theatre . If a manager can meet the most vexatious and annoying situation around a theatre with a good , honest smile , it wont be long before the ushers get the habit , and the musicians and the stage hands will feel the contagion too . Our guests back stage certainly ought to get our / best smiles on opening mornings , for if we can start theni off good , the audiences smile supply is made a lot surer . And many a battle back stage has been won by a smile , when on the other hand some boy or girl with the memory of last nights upper . berth still : fresh in their , minds , walked in the stage door wearing a frown , saw nothing but cross looks on every face , and promptly decided that the . battle was on . I don t think it will be regarded as an out and out thef...
THE HARLEM OPERA HOTEL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 May 1920
THE HARLEM OPERA HOTEL Up m Harlem * on 125 th Street , there is a theatre , that Is more than a theatre . It is a hotel , a hotel unique because there Is a genial feeling of good fellowship noticeable the moment one enters the house . . In this Theatre-Hotel , the ¦ dressing rooms have just been re-decorated ; fresh paint and an odor of cleanliness Is In the air . There is a matron In attendance who will fix a button , sew arip , or cook you a cup of coffee and make you a sandwich —even massage your weary head If you are muddled . I say It s : the real thing in theatres , a real idea—it s a boomerang , because the manager , Mr . Sot Levoy , has struck the right Idea In : making this Theatre-Hotel a spot where geniality Is the keynote , which we all know breeds content thereby sending out to the public a genial , contented artist who , under these conditions , gives a better performance . The Idea Is great , Mr . Levoy , and It Is not an experiment ; it is a success—a success In a s...

PRESS CLUB IN ' DINGY' FOR MEMBERS OF THE N . V . A . ? [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 28 May 1920
PRESS CLUB IN DINGY FOR MEMBERS OF THE N . V . A . ? ( Continued from Page Om ) The encouraging reply of Mr . Garretson makes it possible to predict that to all practical extents and purposes the men members of the N . V . A . will have a real club house- in Cincinnati . The CuvierPress Club has a membership of something over 1 , 000 , including prominent business and professional men , judges , city officials and leading newspaper men of the city . Thus , if the plan goes through , the members of the N . V . A . will not alone be offered the privileges of one of the best clubs in Cincinnati , but they will be assured of congenial companionship at the club whenever they happen to drop in . A further advantage to theatrical people lies in the custom of . the Cuvier-Press Clubs keeping open until 4 A . M . to accommodate all its members , but particularly newspaper men , who work late on morning newspapers and who like to drop in at the club for an hour or two after work . Thus it wil...
