WHAT IS THE ACTOR THINKING ABOUT ? [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 9 July 1920
WHAT IS THE ACTOR THINKING ABOUT ? By WALTER WINCHELL One wonders libw and why actors and actresses become actors and actresses ; surely the saying he was born for the stage doesnt really niean what it implies . As a matter of fact the majority aspire for other occupations and the call to appear before an assembled crowd proves stronger than the p , ower of will ., . Often a patron at the theatre - will ask himself : How in the world did that person ever get on the stage ? Not sarcastically ; speaking , but just because he wishes to know . A canvass of the thespians who appeared recently at . a Pantages Theatre gives the reader the following : information : • Ralph Lohse , the first act , said that when he was a kid his ambition was to be a circus performer ; his partner , Dorothy Starling , craved to be like Pavlowa . Mabel Harper s aspirations leaned towards school teaching , • while her accompanist , Elsie Weber , wished to be a famous musician ; Billy Sharp , of the Broadway Ech...

PROMINENT IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 July 1920
PROMINENT IN VAUDEVILLE E . A . SCHILLER A veritable motive power , around which many successes and failures in theatrical Dixie have revolved , E . A . Schiller , general representative of Loew s southern and southwestern circuits , holds a formidable position in that phase of the south s reconstruction era . Beginning with the historic repertoire troupe , Mr . Schiller has kept abreast the industry , and there is hardly a branch of the theatrical game which has not had the opportunity to develop under his guidance . His first attempt with repertoire was launched in New York In 1893 , and his first variety program held the names of Nick Adams and Jack Wilson , with Ben Jerome as his piano player . His endeavors In the legitimate field were rather extensive and he also had his fling at dramatic stock throughout the south . In 1915 , he turned over his entire southern holdings to Marcus Loew , and In the short space of time that has followed has developed the southern and southwester...

Friend Lew : — A feller made a bet , here yesterday that the next President would be from the State of , Ohio . I guess he was bettin on the Stable entry . I didn t think Id like-to do-four shows a day when I came here , but I found the manager such a regular feller and be explained it so nicely to me I was almost a shamed to take the , extra money I got . for doin the fourth show .

I NOMINATE MR . JORDAN I Sometimes I think Mr .-Jordan , of Philadelphia ; : lias the right idea . He is so . darned nice to people all the time , that when , you do . get anything on him you havent the heart to take advantage ofit . I first played his house fifteen years : ago . At that time if was much easier for a manager to be conspicuous on account of his gentlemanly qualities than it ishow , when the reverse is true . . But he was exactly the same then . Five weeks ago we arrived here , after an all-night jump from Toronto , to find that we were not billed . Through some clerical error , Mr . Jordan had not been -notified that we were coming . He said he would play us anyway . I told him I didn t think it-would , do him . any good to have an extra act , and it wouldnt do us any good to go on without any billing .. He offered to pay us for the .-whole , week , but not a single member of our little troupe would listen to it . ! Then he said , Well , dont worry-about-it . You fol...
