N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 2 July 1920
N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS By Al Grossman Anyone who was fortunate enough to be at the game last Sunday between the N . V . A . and Proctor s Theatre , Newark , really had a treat in the way of a good ball game . It was , of course , won by our boys , 3 to 2 . The attendance was splendid . There was a large crowd on hand long before the game started . This was due to the fact that all the visitors wanted to get a line on the vaudeville stars that particir pated . When the game was called by Umpire . Lyons there were about 600 cheering fans on hand , and I might mention that there was a goodly scattered crowd of Newark s fair sex . Of course we also had our own beauties with us and they all had N . V . A . banners , waving them madly at all times . In the _ first inning when the N . V . A . was 7 at bat , Umpire Lyons introduced each separate player amid . great applause . x A little boy said to Jack Gbbrecht : Say , mister , ; arc these &gt;; all actors ? No , replied Ja...

THE MANAGERS' FORUM [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 2 July 1920
THE MANAGERS FORUM CUT OUT THE BLUE STUFF By MICHAEL J . DUFFY Manager , Proctors 23 d St . Theatre Vaudeville audiences are people . They are made up of fellows mothers , wives , sweethearts , daughters and the fellows themselves . Let s not insult them . The God-fathers of present day vaudeville took the blush out of that form of entertainment some years ago , but a certain number of acts are trying to put it back in . It is- easy to be funny without being dirty . I hate to see an act so crazy for a laugh , that they--wilfully : destroy a good impression , - by resorting to . methods and material that savor of the obnoxious Men only show , of bygone ¦ days . Let s keep pace with 1920 Vaudeville , and not- be . everlastingly trying •¦ to pullit back to 1880 . •The sawdust floor is gone , so too •is the waiter with his tray of schooners ; so too is the double entendre song , and the smutty gag . But is 1 it ? If you were tolisten to some present day acts , youd begin to doubt it . T...
