GETTING TOGETHER [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 April 1920

GETTING TOGETHER I have watched with much interest the general trend toward the betterment of vaudeville—a closer , more cordial relationship between artist and manager—and in order to bring such ideas and plans into full / fruition , it is only necessary that both manager and performer work together to the one end . Each needs the other , and if each works consistently and conscientiously for the other s advancement , there can be but one result—mutual benefit and harmony . In the past many errors have crept in on both sides , and only by blotting out these errors and forgetting past mistakes and differences—starting with a clean slate and keeping that slate clean—can . we hope to achieve conditions which will prove beneficial and harmonious to all concerned in the welfare of vaudeville . LEW H . NEWCOMB . Mgr . Loew s Casino , San Francisco .

IMPORTANT ACTION TAKEN BY MANAGERS AT ANNUAL MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 April 1920

IMPORTANT ACTION TAKEN BY MANAGERS AT ANNUAL MEETING ( Continued from Page One ) year for the artist . B . S . Moss , who presided at the dinner , Marcus Loew , William Fox , J . J . Murdock and Pat Casey were called upon , and each gave his unqualified approval of the plan . Vvhen a vote on the resolution was called for , everyone present stood and applauded . The writer was present as a neutral observer and judging the affair from the unbiased standpoint of a reporter we must admit that our impression of the managers present is wholly different from one we once held . We have attended many dinners and gatherings of all sorts in many parts of the world , but never have we seen more earnestness and a stronger unity of purpose than was displayed last Saturday night at the Plaza . These dinners are essentially of a social nature , to give the managers from all over the nation an opportunity once a year to mingle with each other , tell stories , sing songs and jollify generally .

OUT FRONT [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 April 1920

OUT FRONT The Dominion Theatre , Ottawa , Ontario , is unique in that nearly onethird of its house staff are former soldiers of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces . Of this number two woni medals for conspicuous gallantry in : action , while others were mentioned in orders . It is the policy of the Dominion to employ returned men in all available positions , and the fact that the house now has nearly a dozen ex-soldiers on its pay-roll indicates that the re-estabished soldier is a success in civilian employment . The manager , King W . Snell , is also an ex-wearer of the O . D ., having served during the war as a - captain of infantry , United States Army . --
