NOT UNDERSTOOD [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 July 1920

NOT UNDERSTOOD Not understood , We move asunder , Our paths grow wider as the seasons creep Along the years . We marvel and we wonder Why life is life , and then we go to sleep—Not understood . Not understood , We gather false impressions , And hug them closer as the years go by , Til virtue oft seems to us transgression , And thus men rise and fall , and live and die—Not understood . Not understood , Poor souls with stunted vision Oft measure giants by their narrow gauge . The poisoned shafts of falsehood and derision Are oft impelld against those who mold the age— ,: !

THE POOL ROOM BOYS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 23 July 1920

THE POOL ROOM BOYS The following from a prominent member of the N . V . A ., should have been said a long time ago : I think a word of praise is due 0 Charles McKinstry , in charge of the billiard and pool room at the •club , and his assistant , Walter Combs , the latter , by the way , being the intercity cue champion . Their enterprising efforts in keeping the tables in perfect condition , and the cues always tipped is worthy of mention . ¦ Walter is a hound for cleanliness . I recently saw him giving a certain someone hail Columbia for dirtying up the floor . Both the boys have made a host of friends among the members who frequent the billiard room , and no wonder , because they are . as pleasant as can be under many trying conditions . More power to them .
