OUT FRISCO WAY [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 17 September 1920

OUT FRISCO WAY By JACK STRATTON . SAN FRANCISCO , September 16 th . George Lovett , Orpheum headliner , now claims the golf match which he at first thought he lost to Al Wolhan , of the Curran Theatre , last week . Lovett declares that at the -eighteenth hole , his ball went into a mire , from which he extricated it with eight prods . Later , Lovett learned he could have tossed the ball into dry territory . Wohlman is reported to have used up six strokes at the same hole . Discovering his privilege of releasing the ball by a hand toss , Lovett and Wohlman played again for the hole , each making it in four . Now the Orpheum golfer finds a rule by which Wolhman s first score should hold , while Lovett only should be allowed to play for the hole the second time . This would place Lovett in the winning . Fred Sheldon , Orpheum stage door man , returned from a vacation at his old home , SebastOpol , Calif . His assistant , George 1 ? . Van de Mark , now is vacationing in Sacramento . Man...

THE GALL OF THE FOOTLIGHTS By Earle Remington Hines You may leave the stage , and hide away On a farm , to inhale the new mown hay , > And tread on violets every day . But go some time to see a play ; If you tell the truth , youre bound to say , As you sit in front , that weary brain , Sees the dressing room , with walls so plain , The rows of hanging costumes vain , And youll hate the peace of the country lane . The footlights call , and the love youve slain ,. Will whisper : Dear , come home again !
