VAUDEVILLE MATERIAL MUST BE KEPT GLEAN [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 11 June 1920
VAUDEVILLE MATERIAL MUST BE KEPT GLEAN Artists Urged to be Their Own Censors so Officials Cannot Complain . Undesirable material on the vaudeville stage must be eliminated voluntarily by the artist , and that in the immediate future , or public sentiment will force ; managers to take drastic action . This is the gist of an announcement by Mr . E . F . Albee ; who makes public correspondence showing the growing tendency on the part of public officials to censor matters theatrical . The best way to avoid distasteful , and . sometimes unjustifiable , censorship , he points out , is for artists to attend to their own housecleaning . One organization , with headquarters in Washington , is sending committees to shows with instructions to report on same . Recently in Lynn , Mass ., the mayor s censorship committee caused much annoyance and unfavorable notoriety for a certain act . It is on account of these conditions that Mr . Albee has advised artists to take steps at once to eliminate on...

THE ASSISTANT MANAGER By RAY W . SNOW Having been engaged in the Vaudeville profession for a number of years and observed the improvement in same , along all lines , Iwould like to call the attention of all artists , still further , to one of ^ the factors , which , to my mind , will go as far as any of which I know , to ease the load of the artist on the road and make life and work more pleasant I refer to the innovation of appointing gentlemen like Mr . Robinson , Assistant Manager at the Palace Theatre , Cincinnati . Ohio . It has never been my good fortune to meet a more affable , softsnoken , diplomatic gentleman in all mv travels in vaudeville In one week s connection witlT ~ him I can see the wrinkles he will iron out in a year . I can see the petty misunderstandings he will correct and I can see the hours of real enjoy ment he will give to the artists who play that theatre . If no other inovation had been made in vaudeville during the past year , the improvement this one cha...

VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS MUST BE THEIR OWN CENSORS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 11 June 1920
VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS MUST BE THEIR OWN CENSORS :- June 3 , 1920 . TO VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS : ¦ • . _ . There have been many letters received in the same vein as those , printed below . The managers have endeavored to explain to the artists that sooner or later it wont rest with the managers to eliminate undesirable remarks and songs—it will be entirely out of their hands . The artists believe that the managers are arbitrary and dictatorial as to cutting out material . These letters are printed that you may be advised as to what to expect in the very near future if you have anything in your act of an undesirable nature . Let us hope that the artists will see to it that the managers and the officials will have no opportunity in the future to criticise or condemn . ¦ ¦ - ¦ - - - E . F . ALBEE .
