A . benefit at the Hippodrome Sunday night , May 16 , gives every promise of eclipsing all past records for these affairs .

TIPS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 7 May 1920

TIPS The following suggestion is a good one : What s the matter with the women members of the profession writing to THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS how the managers and stage hands of the theatres they appeared in treated them ? From Francis P . ONeill , press agent , Olympia , Lynn , Mass .: • Artists , did it ever occur to you how important it is to keep in touch with the publicity representative of a theatre where you are playing , or with the newspaper reporters in the cities you make ? I have found in my experience as a theatrical press agent that artists do not interest themselves in newspaper publicity as much as they should . For instance , in Lynn , Mass ., where the two local newspapers devote columns of space to vaudeville artists , it is sometimes difficult to get sufficient material to fill the space allotted . If artists who play this city would only get in touch with me I would see that they got a half column of space , together with a cut , which , in my estimation , is an asset...

SPEAKING OF PHOTOS [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 7 May 1920

SPEAKING OF PHOTOS Arthur Terry writes in that the idea brought out by Ned Hastings in his article concerning better photographs , is a good one . Further in his letter he says : The reading of Ned s suggestion of being photographed while engaged in some favorite pastime reminds me of a humorous experience the wife and I had while in a New England town not so many years ago . Both being tennis players , we had our pictures taken on the court in playing costume . They were very good and we used them for lobby display . After our matinee , the manager sent for me and wanted ^ to know why I cut my act . I explained with some surprise that we had done our full act , and wanted to know in what way he thought we had cut it . You cut out your tennis number entirely , he said . I got the situation in a flash , and came back with : Oh , we don t do that any more ; we play pinochle for recreation now .
