NO CHANGE TO BE MADE IN POLICY OF THE N . V . A Present Regime is Satisfactory ; Good Work Will Go Straight Ahead as in Past There is a rumor running around the street , and no doubt used for propaganda purposes , that there is to be a change in the staff of the N . V . A . •- The artists are entitled to know what the true facts on all conditions are . As far as the N . V . A . is concerned , there is no contemplated change from the present regime of the organization , notwithstanding there are those who would try to lead people to believe that negotiations of some kind are , or have been going on . There are no negotiations of any kind going on with anyone . The N . V . A . started out with a purpose and that was to see that the artists get a square deal . The present regime is very efficient and have done splendid work . They are cooperating with the managers in the most liberal spirit and the managers with the N . V . A . in the same spirit . Great strides have been made as far a...

ELEPHANT TRICKS By JACK HORN ( Mgr . Lyceum Theatre , Bayonne , N . J . ) I noted with interest C . Wesley Fraser s elephant story and would say that he was not the only country boy who has carried water to the elephants . A circus came to my home town , Springfield , Mo ., and being financially embarrassed , but with a strong desire to see the show , I took on a contract with one of the trainers to carry sufficient water to quench one elephant s thirst . I pumped the water from a cistern located about a block from the show grounds . After drawing a number of buckets I was stopped by the owner , who did not want to see his cistern go dry . I explained my predicament to the trainer , after having failed to procure the water elsewhere , and he refused to give me the pass to the big top , claiming that I had not completed the job . I afterward learned , however , that he had been switching elephants on me ! That trainer sure put more than one over on me . Moral : Always lead the elepha...

"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 6 August 1920

MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS Anyone who is good-for-nothing may be good for something—possibly as a horrible example . Don t judge the quality of an act by the salary it receives . It may be worth more . One of the things we can t buy on credit is experience . Position is everything in life ; also on a vaudeville bill—therefore , strive to improve yours . Those who itch for fame usually keep scratching . Better a dozen freckles on your face than one on your character . To be or not to be is not the question . To work or not to work is . Don t criticise your fellow artists—set them an example . Bett . er one earned bow than two stolen ones . The theatre is your all ! Don t degrade it . Play fairl Give your best show at all performances .

ONE OF THOSE DAMLIS Once upon a time there was an actor who just loved to see the act ahead of him stop it cold I Y * DONT SAY ? When we were just a kid of three , Our mother taught us that , When ever we pass a lady , We should always tip pur hat ; So now that we , are twenty-three , We always * go right to it , But what gets us and makes us cuss , Is why the other chap won t do it . RIGHTO ! You may not have noticed it , but why is it that the important chap acts so unconcerned and the bird who thinks hes important is vice versa ? UNCOMMON SENSE Another reason why there is so much trouble in the world is because some people are unhappy without it .

TO THE GUY WHO SAYS : "PUNK " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 6 August 1920

TO THE GUY WHO SAYS : PUNK By TERRY TURNER ( Loew Southern and Southwestern Circuits ) The guy that sits And says My show is punk ; Labels all new ideas As Common tin junk , Remiiid me of a corpse A morgue forgot to bunk ; It laid too long And consequently s k . The guy that wins Is the guy that grins , He gives and he takes , The good and bad breaks . So when number one opens And takes a bad flop , And number two staggers And quietly stops—Your headliner weakens , It can t stand the gaff . Old four s bound to wake em , Getting maybe one laugh . Dont run to the office Disgusted and sick , But prance right back stage Where your actors are licked . Be free with the glad hand , And don t stop at a smile , Act just like a father With the actor , your child . Just cause they re floppin Is no sign they re bad ; Maybe your audience Is pig-bladder mad . When acts know you re with em They work all the more , And come mighty near lickin , The patron who se sore .
