The Royal Road to Learning For Ambitious Amateurs [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

The Royal Road to Learning For Ambitious Amateurs FOR fear that there are not enough choosers in the ranks of established professionals , the reader is advised to visit two or three first-class vaudeville theaters and pick out an act you think you are suited for ; then get one similar to it—and just a little bit better . Surely a simple process ; what could be easier ? For those who have the dramatic ability necessary , Haffert advices , a good , strong dramatic or comedy sketch would be the right thing . He then boosts the game of sketch writing with the statement that the cost of a sketch written by a well-known author will be anything from $ 100 to $ 2 , 000 , but to make it easier for amateurs who are a bit short in funds he adds that stock acts cost from IS cents to $ 2 . GOING further into the sketch thing we read a choice little piece of caution : If the reader deciding to use a sketch has never had previous stage experience , all that can be said by way of advice in regard t...

ASimple Little Treatise Smoothes Out the Wrinkles [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

ASimple Little Treatise Smoothes Out the Wrinkles LOOK out when the curtain comes down , for it seems to be a bad time of the evening or afternoon for some folks , according to Mr . Haffert , who writes : ¦ With some acts , especially dramatic or magical acts , it will be found that at the dropping of the curtain the audience is in a negative mood and does not applaud freely . We have noticed that when the curtain comes down in the middle of an act somebody or other is in a negative mood , and frequently at the end of an act the negative has worked positively . H AVING reached the point where the act is supposed to have been thoroughly broken in , the author relates : The next step is to book it over some circuit and in this connection you will be forced to come in contact with booking agents . Sometimes an easy matter and sometimes a difficult proposition . The young hopeful is cautioned that before writing to an agent to book your act it will be necessary to have private letterhea...

Haffert counseling that the actor even suggest it . The agent may say that he has no house in which to give you a try-out , but that he will be glad to view your act any time you play the city . Then all that is necessary , presumably , is to go right out and play the city . HOW to land the coveted contract is tersely explained in another paragraph which relates that if the agent does not care to see you at the time of your call , he will return your card with instructions to call again . However , if your visit is preceded with a letter specifying the day and time of your intended call , you will usually be granted an audience . Gentle persistency and an act of real merit will always land the coveted contract . AND there you are ! It is appaling to think how unfortunate it is that so few seeker...

What One of America 's Foremost Actors Thinks of Our Affiliation with the American Federation of Labor [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

What One of America s Foremost Actors Thinks of Our Affiliation with the American Federation of Labor Speech by WILTON LACKAYE at a meeting at the Chicago Headquarters of White Rats Actors Union , April 18 , 1911 The third speaker was Wilton Lackaye , who kept the large audience in one almost continuous gale of laughter , managing to clinch the subtle points of his address with timely jokes and humor . He said in part , after being introduced by Chairman Callahan : I don t know what I can say to you . I think that the legitimate actors should come to you , as the White Rats are the only body in the profession that has ever organized and has ever done anything for the actor since the days that Thespis ranted on the tail of a cart . We of the other side of the profession have our clubs , The Lambs , The Green Room , and others , but they are merely for social purposes , and athletic development ( exercise of the forearm . ) We have sat around them and ranted on what we would do and wh...

A Few Observations [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

A Few Observations By Our General Counsel DENNIS F . OBRIEN We have passed through a period of association , combination , and amalgamation of the producing causes of commodities . Capital took the initiative and was followed by labor , until now the doctrine of individualism has been supplanted by the doctrine and practice of collectivism . Collectivism made the first appeal to the economist , who could logically point out in theory a tremendous saving in the producing cost of a commodity by eliminating many of the duplicating administrative charges , by reducing the cost of raw material by purchasing or manufacturing the same in larger quantities , and the cost of labor by supplanting it by machinery , which could profitably be used in a big enterprise , and incidental expenses by combining several factories into one and placing such factories near the source of supply of materials and labor and near the geopraphical and railroad centers , thus minimizing the cost of the distribut...

# The Meaning of Christmas # [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

# The Meaning of Christmas # If Christmas meant only a season of hospitality , enjoyment , pleasure , an exchange of greetings , presents , what an idle and hollow mockery it would all be ! Christmas has a far deeper and a more significant meaning to real men and women . The cardinal and primary sin of all sins is selfishness . No man ever murdered , stole , or broke any other law of God or Man except as the evolution and result of a selfish thought or condition . The elimination and destruction of selfishness . in every form from human consciousness is the most sublime and supreme test of real manhood and womanhood . THAT IS THE LESSON THAT CHRISTMAS TEACHES . To destroy all thought of self and selfishness , to live for someone other than one s own self—to have some appreciation and consideration for the rights of others , to be humane , to be just , to be true , to be honest , to be merciful , to be square , to live reflecting love , light and cheer—that is the lesson that Christm...

# Men and Women of the Stage A [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

# Men and Women of the Stage A Men and women on the stage are just as moral , just as honest , just as true , just as manly and just as womanly as men and women off the stage . It is a common custom to speak in flippant terms of actors and actresses . People forget that actors and actresses have parents , children , brothers , sisters—that they have the same ties , divine and human , as people off the stage . Those who are capable of portraying life and human emotions must necessarily understand life and its thrills . The complexity of life is not decreased or diminished by association with stage life and stage work . The work creates the BOHEMIAN SPIRIT , but it is a mistaken assumption that the spirit necessarily leads to any laxity of morals . Many a good girl or woman at whom gossip and slander has leveled its shafts , and against whom a case of circumstantial evidence might be logically woven , is as pure and honest in heart and spirit as a new born babe . NO WOMAN IS BAD BUT S...

<# The Human Warehouse # [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

&amp;lt;# The Human Warehouse # Every man , woman and child is , or ought to be , a mental and spiritual warehouse , stored and stocked with good thoughts , high aspirations , laudable ambitions , grit , courage , sincerity , truth , love , hope , charity , spirit—manhood , womanhood . WHAT HAVE YOU IN YOUR WAREHOUSE , AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH IT ? WHAT HAVE YOU IN YOUR NATURE AND IN YOUR THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE SERVICEABLE TO MANKIND IF YOU WERE ALLOWED TO SHOW IT ? Is it a mental gem that you are constantly polishing and burnishing , and when an opportunity offers to disclose it to the world , will it be a star and gem of hope—or is it some selfish old , wornout mental rag that can never do any one any good—that can not warm or comfort anybody ? Suppose during this Christmas week you take an inventory of your warehouse and cast out the worthless stuff and garner as a Christmas gift whatever mental pearls you may have gathered in the resolve and effort that before another Chri...

GOLDEN OPINIONS By GEO . FULLER GOLDEN Greeting to My Dear Brothers and Sisters All ; a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and , as Tiny Tim says and old Scrooge repeats . God bless us , every one . As the blessed Yuletide is near at hand , I feel it to be a most appropriate use of the space alloted me , in this , our Anniversary Number , to thank all my brothers and sisters of Ratland , which is the Starfand of Stageland ; as well as my many friends , for all that has been done for me and mine since the last appearance of dear old Santa Clans .

Mr . Actor , Are You a Snob ? [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Mr . Actor , Are You a Snob ? Is it because of the White Rats affiliation with the American Federation of Labor that you are not a member of our organization ? If so , YOU ARE A SNOB , AND A SNOB IS ONE OF THE WORST TYPES OF OUR MODERN CIVILIZATION . A snob believes himself superior to ordinary mortals and thinks that he represents all that is great in his particular calling . The manager has appealed to the vanity of the snob actor by telling him that if he joins the White Rats Actors Union he relinquishes his standing as an artist and acknowledges that instead of being a member of a noble profession he is simply a common laborer . Many a poor , deluded fellow really believes this , but if he will for a moment take into consideration the fact that he is doing two shows a day , seven days a week , with extra shows on holidays , he will begin to realize that THIS IS NOT ART , BUT LABOR . Further , if at any future time the managers of the big time do not want his act , he will find i...
