" Canned" [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Canned ( Continued from page 76 . ) or persuasion from his most intimate friends could induce him to change his plans . He hammered away at the agents and managers for a chance to show his new act , but they refused to listen . Christmas week opened and a few friends of the couple were astounded when they heard that Billy had accepted an engagement for the week at one of the smallest theaters in the city . It was a place where salaries were shaved so close that performers could barely subsist on them ; the number of shows per day was regulated by the patronage of the place ; the dressing rooms were little stuffy holes not big enough to turn around in ; the stage was a mere platform , and , in fact , . the house was known as the jumping off place for seasoned actors and the break-in dump for new acts . And yet , on the gaudily daubed posters on the front of the house Mr . and Mrs . William Josher were billed in big letters . The first two days of the week were very happy ones for Bil...

// We Were All Good [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
// We Were All Good By Ashton and Earle IF WE WERE ALL GOOD And without a single fault , Thered be a panic in show business . And wed have to cry a halt , For no one would be a feature , That s where wed all be mad , And go around a wishing That some of us were bad . IF WE WERE ALL GOOD And our talent wished to test , Wed ask friends how they liked our act . Theyd say just like the rest . The managers would stop fighting , Shake each other by the hand , And before each season closed Lemons would be in demand . IF WE WERE ALL GOOD Thered be no amateur night , And vaudeville would tumble down From its lofty height . Newspapers would start kicking , And critics would feel glum , And strain their eyesight looking For something that was bum . IF WE WERE ALL GOOD No matter where wed roam The audience would have to leave Their little hammers home . Thered be no stageland glory , All would be paid the same ; Wed be classed as common idlers , And none would gain much fame . IF WE WERE ALL GO...

By An Arduous Route Into the Show Business [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
By An Arduous Route Into the Show Business The Experience of One Actor Which Suggests That Dame Fortune Has Chosen Professionals for Her Children Fortune is a fickle maid and no one class of people in the make-up of society are so distinctively her children as are the men and women who follow the profession of entertainment . Dame Fortune ever guides their destinies ; they are here today and gone tomorrow . Dame Fortune has chosen them for her own and it is notably true that , for each little chorus girl who pirouettes upon her toes in the farthest back line ; for each brilliant star that g ! eams upon the electric Broadway , there is a true tale of experiences which rivals the strangest fiction . Few men or women merely elect the show business . They are inoculated with the chronic disease—some of them to suffer and die , but most of them to live a merry , happy life , not because they have so much to be merry and happy for , but because their work has taught them a- philosophy whi...
