With the-sweeping away of the monastic institutions and the reformation of the . religious practices , the Drama was ; divorced from , the . Church , and , since that time it has , stood by ; itself- . Reference was made to the subject recently : by the Dean of Westminster , when he received from the Actors : Church Union-an embroidered pall in memory of the members of . the theatrical profession who gave their lives , in the Great- War : The Dean ; said : This 1 national sh...

THE GROUCH AND SLUGGARD MUST GO [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 25 June 1920
THE GROUCH AND SLUGGARD MUST GO St . Louis , Mo :, June 9 th , 1920 . E ditor Vaudeville News : — I cannot but highly compliment Mr . Jack Bassett on his splendid article in the current issue of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , under the heading of Something You Know and Keep to . Yourself in which he . deals with the grouch and the sluggard . I am wholly in accord with his views . . 1 While-his type is gradually becoming extinct • . in the business , there still remains a few whom we are compelled to meet occasionally on our rounds of the circuits . The vicious snarling kind of house employee who hates , to see you coming . The kind who expostulates vulgarly and whose manners are offensive if you ask for a prop—for a carpet down—for a spot or cue or if you seek information from him as to where to eat or the way to the ; hotel . He lives in a miserable sphere of laziness and indifference . His props are dilapidated , his stage floor is dirty as are the dressing rooms ; the carpet you ask for i...

STAGE CREWS HAVE THE SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 25 June 1920
STAGE CREWS HAVE THE SPIRIT • Augusta , Ga ., June 9 , 1920 . Editor . Vaudeville News : — - I thought it may be of interest , and possibly prove of some value to write you of my recent experience wherein I think it partly shows what a great boon to our profession the recent reform , _ of all-round beneficial co-operation between manager , artist and stage crew , can become . I refer to the co-operative movement wherein every courtesy and consideration is shown the incoming artist by manager and stage crew . A couple of weeks ago -whileplaying the Delmar Time , which , we . are now on , I suffered a complete physical , break-down , caused thru nervousness and muscular rheumatism . I was incapacitated so that I could not proceed with my work of correcting and running the apparatus on which the Curzon Sisters perform . If this had happened at a time previous to this , when co-operation between manager ,-artist , and stage hands did not exist as strongly as it does now , then we would ...

TIPS Frank Franc and his baby grand cello offer the following pertinent remarks : Theatre managers should . instruct their employees not to abuse the artists photographs by running tacks through same in making lobby displays . Every nine out of ten sets of photos returned after an engagement are unfit to be used by the next manager . The photos are either full , of thumb-tack holes , torn or smeared with dirty fingers .. I take particular pride in sending in neat or new photos , or new ones are sent from the publicity department , only to find , in most cases , that the returned sets are unfit to -use a second time .
