MUSICAL HINTS TO ARTIST , DIRECTOR AND MANAGER [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 July 1920

MUSICAL HINTS TO ARTIST , DIRECTOR AND MANAGER { Continued from Page Five ) the hear . t-breaks of bad first performances . And the auditors will get a better return for their money at Monday matinees . A musical director who will not give plenty of time to rehearsing can not object if he is spoken to over the footlights . An artist who rehearses improperly , or does not know every detail of his music does not deserve to have it properly played and should not find fault under the circumstances . A manager who does not see that these methods are carried out , has only himself to blame for bad Monday shows .

THE MORNING'S MAIL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 16 July 1920

THE MORNINGS MAIL PHILADELPHIA , PA . Dear Mr . Condon : —I look forward every week with a great deal of interest for the coming of THE NEWS , and noticed an editorial this week called Keep Cool . For several years I have worked at least part of the summer and have found that by using Odorono according to directions on the face and neck , that there is absolutely no apparent perspiration . I have had managers mention the fact that my partner and myself have worked with no apparent effort during the hottest weather and the stopping of the perspiration on the face makes the other parts of the body perspire more freely . I have found no effects that would make me hesitate to suggest this to other performers . Wishing THE NEWS every good thing that it deserves , I am , respectfully , MORTON HARVEY , •of Harvey & Caryll . WASHINGTON , D . C . Dear Sirs : —I want to thank you for your co-operation in handling . our lost mail in such a . wonderful way and through such a splendi...

FEWER COPIES HEREAFTER [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 July 1920

FEWER COPIES HEREAFTER Beginning with this issue the circulation of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , while continuing to cover as great a territory as before , will be considerably reduced . This is made necessary by the chronic white paper shortage in America and other economic reasons . ¦ Managers of vaudeville theatres will hereafter receive approximately half the number of copies weekly that they have been getting . There will , however , be no alterations in the individual mailing list , and the hundreds of performers who are receiving the paper at their vacation addresses will in no wise be affected . Managers are urged to co-operate with us by seeing that the papers are carefully distributed among artists and employees . Artists can assist by seeing that the copies are passed along to others when they are through with them . Carrying no advertising , and therefore having no revenue , publication of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS entails quite an expense , but it is cheerfully borne and the only ob...

INJUSTICE DONE TO NEIL MACK , VODVIL PERFORMER From Walter Winchell , our correspondent on the Pantages circuit , comes an emphatic denial of the recently published , reports to the effect that Neil Mack , of ; the team of Alexander & Mack , had been arrested for passing worthless checks on the west coast . Mr . Mack himself also writes in to deny the report , and incidentally to ask that THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS be sent to him during his vacation . M » r . Winchell made a thorough investigation of the case and clears it UD as follows : Mack has letters and affidavits from the Chief of Police and others of Long Beach , Cal ., to prove that he was in no way connected with the crime . The real culprit is named Mack also , and when arrested told the police that he was of the team of Alexander & Mack , playing the Pantages circuit .

"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 July 1920

MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS A man is tieven judged by his company—but by the company that keeps himl He who kicks because the leader missed his cue , probably never tried remembering ten or fifteen . Many an act owes its success to * the property man—who never gets any credit , and now with the new I . A . T . S . E . law , no more cash . Following a picture may be bad , but following a flapper who don t give you a tumble is worse . The way of the small timer may be hard , but the way of the lay-off is terrible . He who . steals bows , takes that which not - enriches him—but makes him a damphool indeed . Time wasted grumbling , is time lost forever . Save , no matter how little , and . hold your hedd high when the slow season comes around . Borrowers on Broadway are becoming scarce Reason—lenders are very few .
