THE GAMBLER [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 22 October 1920
THE GAMBLER By JAMES MADISON Ive flirted with Dame Fortune from the day that 7 was born , And she s led me a very lively dance ; But Ive . reached the . conclusion as my footsteps travel on , ¦ ¦ That life is nothing but a game of chance . The dealer of the cards is Fate , and ivc must play our hand , Sometimes if is a high one , sometimes low , Till finally . when grim old Death a show down does demand , Into the discard all of us must go . The rich mans son comes to this earth , he holds four aces cold , On such a hand Id gladly bet my stack ; And yet ., how often do we-find when his lifes storys told , That he . is but a joker in the pack . The poor- mans son is born , perhaps , with nothing but a deuce , And yet against all odds he makes advance ; Thats why I say ,- don t curse your luck , it really is no use , •. For life is nothing but a game of chance . Hozv often have I sat with cards tliat didn t run my way , And had to keep on smiling just the same ; Or if Iliad a streak o...

REGARDING MAIL FOR ARTISTS SEATTLE , WASH ., October 14 , 1920 . MR . GLENN CONDON , Editor , THE VAUDEVILLE NEWS , •New York City . Dear Sir : I have read with interest the discussions touching on conditions back . stage and-In the front of the house , presented in your vaudeville journal by actors and managers . alike , and it has occurred to me that it would not be amiss to make a few suggestions regarding the handling of actor s mail . There are many complaints made that mail intended . for actors is not given proper attention by the house employes of many theatres , and it has been my observation that much of the fault lies : with the actors , themselves in not cautioning their relatives and friends to be sure ; to •mention , the name of their act with the address , and also to put return cards on envelopes . Mail frequently reaches the theatre addressed to some individual in a big act , but bearing no reference to the act itself . The performer s name may not appear on the pro...

MUSINGS * By JIMMY LYONS A good name is something money cant buy . Why is . . it _ an actor cant , have a good time unless he is being separated from his money ? . If some people would remember half the answers to the questions ; they , ask , they would have « aliberal education . Judging by some husbands T know , I cant -blame a lot of girls for working , rather than get married . Killing time is indeed murder . Why does-everybody on a Road Show try to find out . what everybody else is getting ? . Being alonc :. is . abetter than having company when said company is bad . The man who puts on airs may only be doing : so- to keep ¦ fools from bothering hint . . The man that thinks he knows it all , usually knows-nothing .

Car passes all . ; . - ¦ •Hotel accommodations here have been poor as long as I ve been making this town . ; There are any number . of ¦ thirdrate hotels asking first-rate prices—and rooms without running water .
