REASON FOR PUTTING IN STAGE DIRECTORS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 30 April 1920
REASON FOR PUTTING IN STAGE DIRECTORS Publication in the trade press of an item insinuating that the installation of assistant house managers , with the title of stage directors in the Keith and Proctor theatres was incurring the displeasure of stage hands , led to the issuance this week of a very positive statement from E . F . Albee as to his motive for this innovation . It follows : There has been some comment on my action in placing stage directors in the different theatres that I represent . Reference has been made in notes in the trade papers that it was done to antagonize the stage hands , etc ., and all kinds of reasons have been offered , except that for which I placed them there—for the good of the artist , to look after their comfort , to see to their baggage , their dressing rooms , their music , their every comfort back on the stage ; to see that they received what they want with as little friction as possible ; also to have one head to go to instead of running here , t...

CIRCULATION OF "NEWS" IS DOUBLED WITH THIS ISSUE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 30 April 1920
CIRCULATION OF NEWS IS DOUBLED WITH THIS ISSUE When THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS was started it was problematical as to how many copies of each issue should be printed in order to insure its reaching all members of the profession . Since the first two issues were gotten out , letters and telegrams by thei score have been ! received from all parts of the United States and Canada , asking for additional copies . On account of the white paper shortage it is desirable to conserve as much as possible ; but on the Other hand we want everyone in vaudeville to see THE NEWS each week . With that in mind , we are this week doubling the edition . In other words each manager , beginning with this issue , will receive just twice as many copies as he has heretofore ; , and the supply should prove sufficient for thorough distribution to artists and employees . The manager should first see that the artists playing his theatre are taken care of , next his house employees and then the newspaper critics . If t...
MANAGERS MAY NOW SEND ALL UN -CLAIMED MAIL TO "THE NEWS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 30 April 1920
MANAGERS MAY NOW SEND ALL UNCLAIMED MAIL TO THE NEWS Arrangements have been perfected whereby THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS will act as a clearing house for all unclaimed vaudeville mail . On nearly every stage in the country will be found a bunch of old mail—some of it nearly worn to fragments by fingering—which either bore the wrong address , arrived too late or otherwise missed the addressee . The same is true of many of the booking offices . Beginning next week THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS will publish regularly a list of such mail and in this manner it is hoped to prevent many a live letter from becoming a dead letter . House managers , stage managers and others are urged to send all unclaimed or uncalled for mail to this office at once , and then keep up the practice each week . Here it will be carefully filed and indexed , and each week an alphabetical list of the mail on hand will be published in these columns . Artists ! who find old mail on • the stages of the theatres they play are requeste...
Suggestive Songs Are No Longer Tolerated [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 30 April 1920
Suggestive Songs Are No Longer Tolerated Smutty jokes , cursing and suggestive songs are becoming more and more passe in vaudeville , as was indicated last week when in a general letter to all managers of Keith and Proctor theatres , Mr . E . F . Albee called attention to a certain song that was recenty used in New York and instructed that the same should not be sung in these theatres . The lines contained a double meaning that could not be mistaken . Managers are paying close attention to the material used by artists , and there are few theatres now where anything suggestive can get by for more than one performance , and recently acts that insisted on vulgarity have been given the alternative of changing their material or leaving the time . The vast majority of artists who depend entirely upon their own ability and clean lines for success appreciate the necessity of this niove as much as the managers . Vaudeville is essentially an institution for the family , and anything that will...
