LOEW ROAD SHOW OFFERS TO ASSIST KEITH HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
LOEW ROAD SHOW OFFERS TO ASSIST KEITH HOUSE Entire Bill Moves to Another Theatre to Fill in a Threatened Disappointment At noon , Thursday , August 26 th , the acts on the bill due to open at Keiths Lyric theatre at Birmingham , Alabama , had failed to arrive owing , to belated train schedules and advices indicated that they would not arrive in time for the matinee performance at that house . The manager of Keiths Lyric , Mr . Ayres , was in desperate straits as the time drew on for his matinee performance . His theatre was filling rapidly . He was hoping against hope that the train conveying his acts would make up lost time , or a portion of it , and arrive before matinee time . It so happened that E . A . Schiller , the General Representative of the Loew Southern and Southwestern Circuit , was in Birmingham and hearing -. indirectly that Keiths Lyric was without acts for the matinee performance immediately got in touch with the acts opening at the Loew theatre in Birmingham .

LOYALTY [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
LOYALTY By J . ALDRICH LIBBEY Loyalty is worth more than gold , for gold cannot buy it . It is an enormous asset for any government or organization . It is of incalculable value and cannot be weighed on scales like commercial products . Loyalty stands like Gibraltar , inspiring and noble ; impregnable against every wave of temptation of worldly gain , immovable in its strength of character . . Oceans of hate , intrigue and calumny cannot influence loyalty , for it is built upon the solid foundation -of honesty and faithfulness , rather than betrayal of trust . An ingrate is the most despicable human alive . To accept hospitality , to be welcomed as a friend and a confidant of the inner circle , and then to attempt to slur and belittle the efforts of those who are extending the right hand of fellowship , is base ingratitude , and worthy only of the cur that sneaks along in the dark , afraid of the light of truth , honesty and decency . Be loyal . Be true to yourself and to the trust ...
ANOTHER HOTEL EXTENDS COURTESY TO ARTISTS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
ANOTHER HOTEL EXTENDS COURTESY TO ARTISTS Cincinnati Hostelry Goes Out of Its Way to Accommodate the Traveling Performer . In these days of crowded hotels and indifference toward traveling artists , it is gratifying to find here and there a hostelry that appreciates the patronage of performers and goes out of its way to accommodate them . This is especially true in view of the fact that the letter regarding conditions recently sent to the American Hotel Mens Association by the V . M . P . A . did not elicit even the courtesy of a reply . The following letter has been ¦ received by THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS from the Hotel Sinton at Cincinnati and is reproduced in full in the hope that it will afford an example to other hotel proprietors . Artists would do well to keep this copy of the paper and show the letter to hotel clerks or managers who do not accord them courteous treatment . The letter follows : CINCINNATI , OHIO , Aug . 28 , 1920 . Mr . Glenn Condon , Editor , The Vaudeville News ,...

CRITICISM , REAL AND UNREAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
CRITICISM , REAL AND UNREAL By PELHAM LYNTON ( Lynton &amp; Roberts ) The word criticize is derived from the Greek word Krino which means to judge , esteem , select , or separate . Webster in his definition of a critic greatly subordinates the significance of the term as one who is given to harsh rigorous or captious judgment to one who , he says in part , expresses a reasoned opinion on any matter , as a work or a course of conduct involving a judgment of its value , truth , or righteousness , an appreciation of its beauty or technique or an interpretation of its meaning . From this we see that true criticism , dealing as it does with fundamental laws , fixed rules , and unalterable fundamentals by which the merits or demerits of a situation or a piece ¦ of work may be judged , is strictly impersonal and impartial . Holding perfection ever before the gaze it is able to offer efficient explanation of how a result measured by this standard may be best attained . However , mos...

KEITHS BOYS BAND HAS ITS ANNUAL FIELD DAY The annual outing and field day of trie B . F . Keiths Boys Band , was held at Starlight Amusement Park , in the Bronx , and everyone of . the 300 or more youthful musicians who attended declare it to be the most successful affair of its kind that has yet been arranged for them .

There were also a number of athletic events . Besides Mr . Darling , a number of other Keith officials , all of whom are intensely interested in and proud of the band , were present .

PERSONALITY [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
PERSONALITY By ORVILLE GRANT ( GRANT &amp; WALLACE ) Personality is one of the greatest factors in the making of a successful vaudeville artist . • Personality demands , and gets , high salaries , and it is something that can be developed by those who are willing to devote the time and endeavor to it . The personality most valuable to the artist is that which appeals to the theatre-goers of today , for as a class they appreciate the highest possible form of entertainment . Many actors who do considerable fault-finding and kicking would . cut it out if they knew how destructive it was to their personality . Bread cast upon the waters , returns again , is the old saying , and it applies to artists , for they cannot expect an . audience to bs entertained and satisfied unless they are first satisfied themselves with their own conditions and environment . Adherence to this simple rule will do much to produce the tranquility so essential to a good personality .
N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
N . V . A . SPORTS AND SAYINGS By AL GROSSMAN Handicapped by the absence of several of their best players , who were out of the game on account of illness or by reason of out-of-town engagements , the N . V . A . s lost to the fast semi-professional Manhattans at Manhattan Beach , Coney Island , last Sunday by the score of 12 to 11 . The game was witnessed by 3 , 000 persons , mostly bathers . The Manhattan club is a unique organization , composed of college athletes who spend their vacation at the beach . They always play in bathing suits with regulation spiked shoes and baseball caps . The game was tied for several innings , 11 to 11 . In the last half of the ninth inning the N . V . A . s lost the contest by a fluke . Gus Van stopped two runs at the home plate in this inning arid everything looked rosy for an extra inning game , but on the second out at the plate a Manhattan runner came home from third and beat the ball to the plate by inches , giving therri the winning run and a...

| EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
| EDITORIAL AN UNNECESSARY ABUSE Several letters have been received from artists , complaining of the manner in which their music is handled by some orchestras . -This is a condition that has existed for a long time and for which there is no excuse . When an artist has his music arranged and the various parts written he has laid out quite a sum of money , The musician who , thoughtlessly or otherwise , marks or defaces a single sheet is taking money out of the artist s pocketbook . As one correspondent puts it , there is no more reason for the musician taking liberties with a performer s music than there is for the performer going down hi the pit and scratching his initials on a cornet or painting a picture on the drum with grease paint . On the face of- it this may seem like a trivial matter , but when you reckon that the average act pays out $ 200 a season for his original and subsequent orchestrations , and that there are thousands of acts , the aSgi egate mounts up to a consider...
THE ART OF THE VAUDE VILLI AN [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 3 September 1920
THE ART OF THE VAUDE VILLI AN An Appreciation by E . H . CONWAY -:- In Four Installments No . 2 Nor does the lack of such adventitious aids as setting and story represent the sum total of the vaudevillians disabilities . The legitimate actor expresses himself through a medium which may be likened , to a single brilliant whose lights are deftly fused to produce one definite effect . There is no rivalry among the colors for predominance . Vaudevilles character is more that of stone with seven or nine separate facets , yielding a like number of distinct impressions . Fusion , unity , subordination of parts—these are out of the question . They are particularly out of the question because not one effect is desired , but several . Indeed , the art of the booking manager consists in making these separate effects as varied as possible , within the limits of popular appeal . • The vaudevillian , therefore , is under the constant strain of competition with- those who coruscate around him . He...
