YOU WILL NEVER TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM HERE ! [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 October 1920
YOU WILL NEVER TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM HERE ! He shall never live long who serves only himself , He shall never be great who thinks only of •. Pelf ; Though he grow to be gray In his own narrow way , Hc ^ shall find that the gold He has labored to hold Is an empty reward for his long years of strife , And too late he shall learn he has wasted his life . He shall never be wise who thinks only of gain , &gt; And toils for but what he , himself , may attain . He shall sigh at the end , For the smile of a friend , And shall reap from his years Only hatred and sneers , And alone he Shall sit at the end of his days , And wish he had traveled by kindlier ways . He shall never be big who has never been kind But shall always be little of soul and of mind , He may scramble and fight And may get to the peak , By destroying the w ^ ofe , But there he shall find that his conquests are spoiled , And robbed of their charm by the way he has toiled . The service worth while is the service me...
I "MAKE IT A HABIT" ! [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 October 1920
I MAKE IT A HABIT ! By ME -Feeling blue again , eh ? Come here ! Sit down . Now , let s think ! You say you read THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS every week and that you try to get some good out of the metaphysical articles , but you cant , eh ? Well , don t get discouraged ! They were splendid lessons for those who are advanced , but for you they were hardly siinpie enough . You re only a baby . yet , so you must be fed milk . You must start at your A B Cs . Willing to start ? Good ! Then here goes : What do you most earnestly desire in life ? —Health , Success or Happiness ? You haven t them ? Can you tell why ? BE CAUSE YOUVE BEEN THINKING WRONGLY!—Youve gotten into a bad HABIT . Now , you must try to get out of it and start a NEW HABIT . What is a habit ? My definition is simply this : You THINK a thing , or you DO a thing so often that ultimately you do it WITHOUT THINKING . Now , then , thats clear , isnt it ? Good ! Now , listen— As a man thinketh ( IN HIS HEART ) so is he . That means th...
. "MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 October 1920
. MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS Is there anything more horrible looking than a man with a several-days-old mustache ? A flop now and then takes a lot of conceit out of some people . To argue with your wife is no argument—its all one-sided . No matter how good we think we are , there s always room for improvement . Some people tell the same lie so often , they finally begin to believe it themselves . A word to the wise may be sufficient , but there are many too stupid to realize it . With present conditions , how can Vaudeville be anywhere else , but at the top ? Let him who is without a fault say , Aye . And silence reigns supreme . When in doubt play safe . You know the adage about The bird in the hand , etc .

EDITORIAL I [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 15 October 1920
EDITORIAL I TO THE MANAGER This is just a personal word to the house manager regarding the distribution of THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS . We continue to receive so many letters , from both managers and artists , complaining that often they do not get to see the paper , that we are again compelled to ask you , Mr . Manager , to do your utmost that each artist on the bill may be given an opportunity to see . a copy . We regret of course that we cannot send you enough copies each week so that every individual artist and employee will have one for his very own , but conditions prohibit this , so we must do the next best thing . A number—a very large number—of managers have , at quite a . nominal expense , provided a cloth or leather binder and in this they keep a permanent file of all issues back stage , preferably in the Green Room . Usually they maintain an other file in their office for personal use . This is a splendid idea , as it not only means . that at leas t one copy of the current numb...
