SUNDAY CONTRACTS ILLEGAL [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
SUNDAY CONTRACTS ILLEGAL MILWAUKEE , Wis ., Dec . 13 . —Judge Halsey , of the Circuit Court , has just handed down a decision which is of vast import to all vaudeville people . Robert Warwick , leading man for the Sherman Brown stock company , sued for three weeks salary , claiming that his contract called for ten weeks work and he only was allowed to play seven . Mr . Brown admitted that the contract had been signed and had not been lived up to , but claimed that inasmuch as the contract called for Sunday performances it was illegal and the actor had no redress . The judge sustained this contention and the actor lost his suit . Under this decision if an actor signs a contract in which it is specified that Sunday performances are part of the agreement then the contract is not worth the paper it is written on .

CHORUS .

The Development of Swimming as an Amusement Attraction [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
The Development of Swimming as an Amusement Attraction By PETER S . McNALLY , Boston Correspondent , of The Player . Til ERE has been a widespread interest of late in swimming attractions . Within the past year a number of experts in natatorial work , men and women , have sprung into public prominence and water acts have been specially featured , not only in the leading vaudeville houses , but in the motion picture houses , as well . Water acts have not been uncommon in the varieties for more than thirty years , but it remained for Annette Kellerman to create a big general interest in this form of attraction , and since her advent to the stage four years ago when she opened at Keiths theater , Boston , many swimming and diving acts have come to life and light . I believe , if memory serves me right , that the first swimming act to attract real attention in this country on the stage was that of Harry Guerre , who came over from London and performed an under water act in a crystal tan...
