WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 22 April 1921
WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE IRVING KAUFMAN I am sure that the boys and girls who have been in our game for fifteen years or longer appreciate the new era . They are the ones who realize what it is all about . In the old days I played theatres so dirty and unsanitary that the manager would , never come back stage for fear of getting sick . I also recall dates where theatres had troughs ( the kind horses drink from ) in the back yards and the acts were forced to break ice in the Winter before they could get to the water and wash up . From personal observation I believe that what grievances there are come from the newer generation , who , really have no kick coming at all . They are having the time of their lives and dont know it . I say , keep up the good work . Don t let knockers influence you . Think for yourself . EMMA HAIG I want to give thanks through t h i s department for the wonderful treatment accorded me in all of the theatres I have played this season ....

Spirit of co-operation as brought out by Testimonial Matinee , makes impression on well known veteran artist . April 9 th , 1921 . Mr . E . F . Albee , New York , N . Y . Dear Sir : Foryour information and in justice to Mr .

However , to generalize , I want to state the Testimonial was a big success and give you some of the vital reasons : Mr . Hastings evidently extended himself as the biggest feature of the day should be known as Sunday s Tryout . Billy Sunday is holding a revival . meeting in Cincinnati , and has been known frequently to attack the theatre , or rather , things of the theatre . In spite of this , Mr . Hastings prevailed upon hinr to-appear and do a monolo...

NATIONWIDE TESTIMONIAL MATINEE FOR VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 22 April 1921
NATIONWIDE TESTIMONIAL MATINEE FOR VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS ( Leading Editorial from the Lot Angeles Evening Herald of April 7 th ) You have marveled at the supple muscles of the acrobat , admired the deft and twinkling footcraft of dainty dancers , laughed immoderately at the knockabout sketch team , been convulsed by comical black-face mokes and monologists , and been thrilled and thralled by the beauties of the vaudeville stage . . But did it ever occur to you that tragedy often breaks in upon the lives of these comedians , and that inevitably there comes the time when the silver cords of the vocalist s throat turn rusty , the lissome limbs of the dancing girls grow rheumatic , when the-wbeezes of the jester are jeered and not cheered , and the stars of the big time fade away into the discard ? Can you imagine anything more pitiful than the lot of the sick , superannuated and penniless performer , to whom even the sight of the medals and souvenirs of former glory is now only the fuel t...
