A PERFECT TOUR [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 13 August 1920

A PERFECT TOUR Following is a letter from an artist received this week by THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS : Troy , N . J ., July 30 . DEAR EDITOR : We have ¦ played forty-six consecutive weeks and are now leaving for our vacation without one complaint to offer . We can boast of never having had onebit of trouble with- either managers , musicians or stage hands , and attribute a great deal of our professional success to the wonderful treatment received from . all . During the recent attack of laryngitis Miss Sadler lost her-voice , and the manager at Auburn , N . Y ., allowed Miss Howard to do a single . At the close of the engagement not one penny was deducted from our salary . We- certainly cannot forget these things . We have spent a most wonderful closing week at Albany and Troy , where ; everyone conected with the theatre makes you- feel like you were coming home instead of going to work . Its great to see Mr . Emde greet them all with a smile , and we are not forgetting last week at Philad...

BOQUETS FOR THE LOEW CIRCUIT [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 13 August 1920

BOQUETS FOR THE LOEW CIRCUIT Recent reports from artists playing the Loew circuit are to-the effect that the house managers , the bookers , the stage crews and musicians are uniformly courteous and obliging , and that they find in every house they play every evidence of a whole-hearted desire to co-operate with the present widespread movement for better conditions . Two typical letters from Loew artists follow : MR . MARCUS LOEW , 1493 Broadway , , New York , N . Y . Dear Mr . Loew : I want to say a word about the treatment accorded performers on your southern time . In every house , everyone from the manager down , has been wonderful . They have tried to help in every way they can , and all they can . It surely is a pleasure to receive this treatment and I know we all appreciate it . Very truly , RUTH CHRYSTIE , ( The Musical Chrysties ) . New York , August 2 , 1920 . Editor , VAUDEVILLE NEWS , 1564 Broadway , New York , N . Y .

N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS By AL GROSSMAN The big game of the season was won by the N . V . A . It happened at Freeport , Long Island , last Sunday afternoon and was witnessed by several hundred performers , including a recordbreaking delegation of N . V . A . Rooters . The- Lights , on whose ground the game took place , were defeated by the score of 13 to 5 . From the seventh inning on it was a slaughter . The N . V . A . s never had a better line-up or played better ball in their lives , while The Lights were handicapped by poor fielding all around and inability to fathom Sammy Smiths superb delivery . Abitz , who started in the box for The Lights , retired after the fifth inning . Robertson , who replaced him was equally helpless before the sluggers from 46 th street . Not content with slamming the ball all over the seashore the boys from Times Square pulled a nifty in the fifth frame when Packard and Armstrong both stole home , while the bewildered Lights chased rings around...
