"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 20 August 1920
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS A blackeye in the office is usually earned . The small-timer : Thank heaven , every day isn t . Sunday . What have you for the proverbial rainy day , besides the umbrella ? Silence may be golden —but not to a monologist . No matter how un-important our spot may seem , it s necessary towards the building up of a good show . Listen to others—then use your own judgment . A man who acts foolish is usually iri love . Your value to others may depend on how much you are good for . Why is it some actors work , week in and week out , and at the end of the season , have nothing to show for it but -a played out route slip ? Closing the show . isnt half as . bad as being on second , and second isnt as bad . as opening ,. . and opening isnt as bad as not working at all—so why complain ?

The money was in her hands within three weeks of the date of her husband s death , and is serving to tide her over until the will can be probated and the small estate settled up .

THE MELODY OF LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 27 August 1920
THE MELODY OF LIFE By FRANK PARISH ( Parish &amp; Peru ) The Law of Life IS HARMONY . We should remember that whatever we bring to life we receive from it again . The discords we create for others come back to us •redoubled . The harmonies we are able to bring to brighten and to uplift our fellowr men are returned to us in an increased way to bless and to comfort our own lives . To help others , constitutes an effort to best help self . This is the Law , arid all may reap the joy and gladness of life , the love and the hope of life , if they . will . Sometimes we speak -of people as being discordant . A discordant person is one who is not attuned , one in whom the Melody , Rhythm and Harmony of life are absent . To produce accord it will be necessary to establish aH three . While each individual . is a U » it , the Unit may be said to-have three phases through which it exPresses itself : Soul , Mentality and Sense . Love and the deepest feelings of Joy , Faith , Hope and Pea...
SOME SINGER [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 27 August 1920
SOME SINGER By EARLE REMINGTON HINES I ve passed through many cities , And lived in many lands , I ve seen most everything thafs made , By human brains and hands . I have survived the Kaiser s lid , He lifted off from Hell , And others terrors following , Of which I need not tell . But always in my heart of hearts There was a vacancy , It seemed I had been cheated , Tho just why I could not see . If life were worth the living , From Missouri sure I came , For no one yet could show me , How the cost equalled the game . But one day at my latch string . Came a messenger . Bang I Bingl Now the world dont , owe me anything , Ive heard McCormick singl For when I heard that wondrous voice , The gift of love supreme , My soul was lifted to rejoice , I saw the Immortal gleam . I felt like some wee wandering lamb , Lost in . the falling snow , W . ho heard the shepherd calling him . God knew the way to go . ¦ Now . Im satisfied at last , That everything s all right , That God is in His Heaven...

N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS By AL GROSSMAN Before the largest crowd that ever saw the N . V . A . s play ball , our club defeated the BayRidge Athletic Club last Sunday on the Bay Ridge field , by a score of 4 to 3 . It was also the record attendance for this field . By actual count there were 5 , 000 persons present and strange to relate a big majority of them were N . V . A . rooters , although living in the Bay Ridge vicinity . The feature of the game was Sammy Smiths pitching for the N . V . A . s . Although this Rock of Gibraltar has pitched us to many victories this season he has never before shown the form that he did in this game . Six hits were recorded against him , but had it not been for the crowded condition of the playing field this number would have . been cut in half . Sammy did stellar work . with , the bat . as A well , getting two . hits ; One of them was credited as being a two-bagger , but had it not been for ground rules it would have been a home run .
