Are Foreign Stage Girls More Strenuous ? [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Are Foreign Stage Girls More Strenuous ? j * jl ! JB 5 ggaWlT is the common obSi ^ SiSii—i servation among those ttS ^ llilfB who follow amuseW ^^^^^^ K nients in the United l £ -lfeffpg | M States that a large mas § PP ] Jlll | p § jority of the girls who jSjSEpSSMGsM ^ i appear in acts where jg ^^ ffiJJPfll physical strength and Bis _ J _ iWs __ a _ l skill count for most are noticeably foreign . The lady aerialists and acrobats with the circuses are foreign . The lady dancers in vaudeville and in other forms of entertainment in _ the United States are foreign . Lady bicycle riders and roller skaters are foreign . There are notable exceptions to this rule , but one s personal recollection of past performances or a little observation in the future will be convincing that the general statements made are well founded in fact . There seems to be a reason for this condition of affairs—as there are reasons for most things—and the reason was pretty clearly set forth in a recent interview...
BOYCOTTS RIVAL , IS JUGGED [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
BOYCOTTS RIVAL , IS JUGGED CHICAGO , Dec . 13 . —II . Lawrence , who operates a moving picture house in Milwaukee avenue , thought it might be pretty good business to undertake to boycott the house of A . W . Ross , which is a nearly competitor . Accordingly Mr Lawrence attached signs on a wagon which he caused to be stopped in front of his rival s place of business , urging union men not to patronize Mr . Ross s five-cent show shop . But , alas , the best laid plans of mice and men , etc . Instead of turning away business from Mr . Ross , Mr . Lawrence found himself in the cruel clutches of the law , and when last heard from was bemoaning the sad , sad fate of a theater owner who really is entitled to the undivided patronage of a given neighborhood .
Vaudeville Spotlight Reveals Little That is New [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Vaudeville Spotlight Reveals Little That is New By J . C . Matthews , Chicago Representative for the Pontages Circuit . There is nothing new under the vaudeville spotlight . The thing blazoned as new is sooner or later discovered to be the working out of an old idea in a new form . The half dozen original jokes have served thousands of comedians without important changes . The eight or ten original dancing steps have provided a routine for tens of thousands of dancers . The songs of olden time bob up every day , in what is heralded as a brand new idea . The one-act playlets of years ago those who stop to think , remember that present day vaudeville grew out of the road show . Instead of discussing the road show as a new thing , it is better to dwell on it as a return to old ideas . The Pantages Circuit puts its shows together now with the same care exerted by the manager of a combination . The acts are booked weeks in advance . The various numbers are gone over carefully to see that...

Feminine Fancies and Foibles [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Feminine Fancies and Foibles By Cady Whaley ANNA KENT and Rube Marquard , the eleven-thousand-dollar pitcher for the Giants , produced a new vaudeville sketch by C . H . Kerr at Hammerstein s Victoria the past week called The Baseball Man . Rube , wearing the New York Nationals uniform , received an enthusiastic welcome , arid went smilingly through with what few lines he had , closing with a waltz with Miss Kent , which , though it did not show him to be in Donald Brians class exactly , he still executed gracefully and was fortunate throughout in having so experienced an actress as Anna Kent to carry the skit through successfully . It was simply a humorous bit in which the baseball man was being taught how to propose by his sister . Miss Kent opened the act with a song , Pie s My Baseball Man and I m His Baseball Fan . She sings effectively and has the manner of a real baseball fan , which I found she was , when I entrapped her in her dressing-room after the act , when she confesse...

TIME TABLES AND PLAYS [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
TIME TABLES AND PLAYS CHICAGO , Dec . 20 . —Augustus Thomas , who made a hurried trip to Chicago last week and looked over his latest success , As a Man Thinks , spoke on the drama and its making in this wise : Law governs the length of a play as much now as it ever did . But the law of this time has a basis differing from that of the old law , for while in Shakespeare s day the dramatist was bound by a written law , the playwright of the present is bound by the laws of suburban time tables , the laws of businessi and the laws of society . _ A play must close at eleven oclock in order that the suburbanites may catch the 11 . 30 train home . Otherwise they will leave the theater before the close of the play—and no one likes that . As a rule the last night train leaves the city after midnight , but the average suburbanite doesn t care to remain in the city so late . And it is a good thing that there is an 11 . 30 train for him . Otherwise he would have an hour to dispose of with no pl...
