VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 April 1921
VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES By BERT LEVY It is sad to think that my old friend , Ben Welch , will never see this little souvenir of a very happy week we spent together at Doc Breed s old hangout at Brighton Beach . Ben s affliction has touched the hearts of everyone in vaudeville , and the only thing we can do is to silently pray that his sight will be restored . Meanwhile , he is making a gallant fight and the odds are In his favor . There has never been a more genial Hebrew comedian than Ben , for he has the rare gift of caricaturing his race without giving the least offence . The secret of his success Is that he allows his kindly personal nature to shine through his stage work . Ben Welch never pulled a gag in his act that brought the blush of shame to his fellow-Jews . Ben—God grant that your sight will return so you can see the smiles of your friends .

It has published only matters of interest to vaudeville . Everything of importan...

WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 April 1921
WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE SENATOR FRANCIS MURPHY I feel particularly grateful for the new theatres and better vaudeville conditions when I look back a f e w years and think of the Gems , the Bijous , and other nick elodeons that they used to call theatres ; Any artist who has been in the profession for at least twenty years will agree with me I am sure . What a change ! To-day in the majority of the theatres we can find the finest of dressing rooms and other improvements . ^ There is no excuse for the antagonist any more . The chap who questions the good work of the managers is usually dissatisfied with everything in life . I am an N .--V . A . because I am satisfied . I am an optimist because I have accepted the improvements that have been handed me and have tried to reciprocate . BELLE HAWLEY The principal grievance the artists had before the present era of improvement started was the contract . Tht anxiety one went through in those goodriddance days was unb...

WOUNDED SOLDIERS WILL GET TICKETS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 April 1921
WOUNDED SOLDIERS WILL GET TICKETS Lee Stoddard cannot be in New York for the Monster N . ~ V . A . benefit performances at the Hippodrome and Manhattan Opera House , but he wanted to help , so he - bought five tickets , and asked that they be given to wounded soldiers in some of the New York hospitals . This is a splendid idea . The $ 1 tickets can be exchanged at either of the theatres for reserved seat tickets . Five $ 1 tickets will be exchanged for a $ 5 reserved seat ,, three $ 1 tickets for a $ 3 seat , and so on . Each ticket , in other words , has a cash value of $ 1 at the box office where the advance sale for the performances is held . Mr . Stoddard s example should be followed by others , and no doubt will be when it is called to their attention . His letter on the subject follows . March 23 rd , 1921 . Mr . Billy Sullivan , Palace Theatre Building , New York City , N . Y . Dear Friend : I have these five tickets for the N &lt; V . A . Show which I will be unable ...
