MAKE THEM GO AROUND [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 September 1920
MAKE THEM GO AROUND We continue to receive so many letters from managers , asking for additional copies of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , that we are compelled again to call attention to the fact that on account of the white paper situation we are forced to limit the . supply sent to each theatre . Just as soon as possible , we hope to increase the weekly edition , but in the meantime we . must ask your indulgence and co-operation . Managers should see that the copies received are distributed as evenly as possible among the performers on the bill . The most practical scheme is to place one in each dressing room . Many managers have had permanent binders made , in which the copies are kept from week to week . This provides a . file of all copies for artists who want to read the paper in . their spare moments back stage . A similar file should also be made , available for house employees , as it is impossible to send a sufficient supply to provide one for every employee . Artists who play a th...
"MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 September 1920
MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS He who lets himself go to the dogs is bound to come back with fleas . We were taught to speak . It s too bad we werent also taught to hold our tongue . Patches , may be badges of honor , but who cares for such decorations . - ^ Take your choice : —Cards , Dice , or Golf . He who steals my , purse ,, steals trash , but he who filches from me my best gag , makes me sore indeed . Why do some acts change their name ? . Do they think they re fooling anyone ? Music hath charms . You wouldnt believe it to hear some of the orchestras I have . Have you ever noticed that an agent who promises much has a poor memory ? The best throw to be made with dice—is . throwing ; them away . All the world loves- , a lover—but oh how it hates a liar . The Tired- Working Man * goes • to a musical comedy—to sleep . . . Some actors love to work , . while -. others like-to work some actors . Time and tide wait for no . man , Neither does the landlord .

MY DREAM [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 September 1920
MY DREAM By GEORGE KIDD ( Courtesy of Harry Shuman ) When I arrived home the other night I went to my room , turned on the light ; I removed my coat , shoes , trousers , vest , Said : Ill have a gpod nights rest . I removed my collar , my shirt and tie , Put on my nightie , gave one deep sigh ; Turned out the light , hopped into bed And drew the covers around my head . I tossed and tossed from side to side , To go to sleep I tried and tried . At last old Morpheus soon did creep ; I fell into a deep , sound sleep . And while I slept a picture screen Appeared before me in my dream ; And what I saw upon the screen Ill tell in rhyme , the things I dreamed . I dreamed I saw Cap Kentzel at the wharf , club in his hand , Keeping back the hotel runners and hackmen by command ; And Harry Hook , the copper , he was walking Kearny street , Shaking hands with old-time cronies he met upon his beat . Then peerless Billy Emerson appeared before my gaze , Sang , Mary Kellys Beau , The Big Sun Flowe...

"ENCOURAGEMENT " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 September 1920
ENCOURAGEMENT By JIMMY LYONS A wonderful thing is encouragement . A word or act may do wonders . The artist on the stage is like a child . He wants to be humored . Which of us doesn t care to hear the laughs , long and loud , or the applause deafening ? The ; trouble with many audiences today is that they just come in , sit through a performance , and enjoy it inwardly . Granted , they go put and tell their friends the show at the So-and-So Theatre is good . But how much better would the same show be , were the audience to reward , the artist with a bit more applause , or a real laugh in place of a snicker ? Laughter and applause are meat and drink to an artist—and when given enough of each , can be encouraged to exert every energy in putting his or her act over better than just ordinary . It would benefit the management of such theatres , where the audience is naturally cold , to plant a couple of leaders , until they have been educated to the fact that the show is better when the ...

I EDITORIAL GET TOGETHER Every artist who is going to be in or near New York City on Sunday night , October 3 , should make- an effort to attend the first of the new season s Bohemian Nights at the N . V . A . Club that evening . It is going to be well worth the money from a strictly entertainment arid epicurean standpoint , but it will be something more than that , because practically every prominent vaudeville executive in the city w . ill be there . Their presence will indicate their earnest desire for a continuance of the spirit of good will and feeling of co-operation between manager and artist that has already accomplished so much for their mutual welfare . Of course , „ there will not be room for everybody , so it behooves you to get in your request for a reservation without delay . They will be taken care of in the order they are received , and no favoritism will be shown . There is not a manager or agent or circuit cxecuive in the business now who is not thoroughly in accor...

THE ART OF THE VAUDEVILLIAN An Appreciation by E . H . CONWAY -:- -:- InFour Installments No . 4 Nor has the progress of all been as innocent of struggle as that of , say , Julius Tannen . This enlightened monologist sloughed the toils of commerce and donned the sock of the variety humorist Inside of a Single Week The transition was so uncommonly swift and easy that its history will easily bear repetition . During a brief vacation in the early part of 1902 , Tannen , then private secretary to Ogden Armour , attended a performance of Busy Izzy , in which George Sidney was appearing at the Great Northern Theater in Chicago . In the course of an intermission visit to Sidney , Tanneii remarked that after several years observation of the methods of his friends on the-stage , he had reached the conclusion that their life was nothing less than a bed of roses . You re probably right , rejoined Sidney , complacently . Acting is a gift . That s what makes it look so easy . If you had this fac...
