N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS By AL GROSSMAN After seeing the boys work out for two hours on Tuesday morning , Henry Chesterfield remarked that the N . V . A . Baseball Club is -without a doubt the fastest theatrical baseball team that was ever organized , I was more than pleased with their showing , he declared afterward .

THE MANAGERS' FORUM [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 18 June 1920

THE MANAGERS FORUM DRESSING-ROOMS vs . CHIVALRY By WARREN P . MUNSELL , Manager , Alhambra Theatre , New York City At this day and age of vaudeville theatres it is probably safe to say that there is scarcely one that does not provide not only a clean but an inviting dressing room to the actors on Monday w . F . MUNMLL mornings . All dressing rooms have carpets , good mirrors , clean walls , clean . lavatories , some even have soap and towels , while others furnish clean toweling for the make-up . shelves or . use glass shelves that are equally sanitary . At other theatres there are shower baths and even tubs . And there is no discrimination . The chorus room : on the top floor is as sanitary and attractive as the lower floor rooms , while every floor probably boasts at least one full length glass in the hall .
