TO THE GOLFERS OF THE N . V . A . [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 July 1920

TO THE GOLFERS OF THE N . V . A . Our tournament , which starts on July 26 , promises to be a tremendous thing for the vaudeville profession and those attached to our club . It is the duty of every member of the club who plays the game to send in his entry at once . The managers are going to have a strong team in the field and they will require a lot of beating before they stop . In our tournament , there will be a chance for everyone , and the player who shoots a hundred will have as good a chance to pull down one of the trophies as the fellow with the low score . We expect at least five divisions , and your score will automatically place you in the same division with a player of your own calibre , so everyone will have an equal opportunity to bring home a cup in one or another of the divisions . There is no doubt in my mind but that this will lead to greater things for us in golf . I can see in the future where -we will have pur own country club , with a clubhouse that will compar...

A brother manager touched upon the 1 subject verv intelli CHAS . LOVENBERG gently a few weeks ago , but , to my mind , he did not go deeply enough into the matter . I am writing now from the standpoint of performer , musical director arid manager , haying in my time drawn a salary in each of - these several capacities . The greater , part of / , my career , however , has been spent as a musical director . I , _ therefore , feel justified in expressing my views on the subject .
