THE ART OF THE VAUDEVILLIAN [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 27 August 1920
THE ART OF THE VAUDEVILLIAN An Appreciation by E . H . CONWAY -:- -:- In Four Installments No . 1 In that modern mosaic of entertainment called vaudeville , personality is al once the requirement and the badge of success . It is the passport to the favor of the two-a-da 3 f . With this gift as his credentials the artist may enjoy the freedom of a city of ten million theater-goers , exploring unchallenged the highways and byways of applause , the while he is paid a king s ransom for his sightseeing . Lacking it , he is like one who enters the lists bereft of his lance . All the Cunning in the world will not avail to repair his deficiency . He is unseated ere the tilt gets under way . The joust becomes a rout . Less easily defined-than recognized , as the useful old platitude has it , this personal quality admits of- various embodiments , many of which are unsuited for display in that glamorous refraction of life known as the theater .

"MUSINGS" 1 [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 27 August 1920
MUSINGS 1 By JIMMY LYONS It s a wise author who can recognize his script after the changes the actors have made in it . The nearer the top floor one lives , the better the outlook . Getaway night is great , provided you don t have to make one of those fiveminute train connections . The success of an act may depend upon the attention paid to the little things in it . Artists are born—actors can be made ! Even a bass drum has its uses . It may not make sweet music , but it drowns out a lot of the sour . A poor memory is a liars only trouble . Children are wonderful—except when they cry during your act . Keeping an appointment with an agent and being on time , usually costs you a lot of valuable time waiting for him to show up Saw a good one back stage the other day : We have no rules in this house , ARTISTS need none . A dollar earned is worth two you can borrow .
