LETTERS FROM A SELF-MADE AGTOR TO HIS AGENT By ARTHUR TERRY New York , October 15 . Friend Lew : I . was in Court yesterday . It makes a creepy feelin run up your back to stand up and face a Judge . Of cour sie I suppose you are used to it , but I-haven t lived in New York as long as you have , and besides I wasn t under arrest . It was the first case in the history of New York where a man was tried by his dears instead of his peers . . The jury was composed of women and they were sittin in judgment on a man charged with beatin his wife . Poor fellow , he had about as much chance as a Philadelphia ball player firidin money under his pillow . I . don t know what the penalty is for beatin your wife . You probably do , but whatever it is they will hand it to him at hard labor . •Yours truly , ARTHUR TERRY .

AN OBJECT LESSON [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 29 October 1920
AN OBJECT LESSON A vaudeville actor recently died , and his widow , knowing that he had been a member of the N . V . A ., wrote to Mr . E . F . Albee to ascertain whether or not she was entitled to the $ 1 , 000 life insurance that now goes with every paid-up membership in the organization . Investigation disclosed the fact that the deceased actor , at the time of his death , was In arrears for one year and a half . The sum of $ 15 would have paid him up to date , had he not neglected the matter . On account of the pressing circumstances of the case , Mr . Albee sent his personal check to the widow to take are of her necessary expenses . Obviously , however , It is out of the Question to expect Mr . Albee , or anyone else , to send a check In every case of this kind . The actor who is so neglectful as to allow his dues In the N . V . A . to lapse , has n ° one but himself to blame . This case , the namesin which are withheld for obvious reasons , Is cited as an object lesson and sho...
"THEN AND NOW " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 29 October 1920
THEN AND NOW By JIMMY LYONS Have you ever been on a Road-Show , and taken notice how long the harmony lasted ? Not very ! Its peculiar how , when you first start out , everything is fine and dandy , and then , after a couple of weeks , it all changes . There are several reasons that account for the change . Ill cover a few : Why should so and so get dressing ; room one , and They and Co . not ? Why should one dress downstairs , or climb up stairs , while the other has a stage dressingroom ? Thus you have two acts- sore at one another . Then there s the matter of songs . This act wants to use a certain song and so does another . Why can t they alternate ? One week one act use the number ,. and the next week the other ? Isn t it worth it for the sake of peace ? Then there is the gossip . The one that heard so and so , say so and- so ,, about so and so . This agitation is compared favorably with the snake in the grass . ..-.-..-:. And dont let s overlook the petty jealousy that arises ...

A notable array of vaudeville headliners will furnish the entertainment . The details...
I "MUSINGS " [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 29 October 1920
I MUSINGS By JIMMY LYONS . Familiarity breeds contempt , —and Road Shows breed familiarity . We can t all be Headliners , but we can try to be . It s a small route that has no open dates . The only way to forget your troubles , is to work steady . It is easier to meet a bill than dodge it . Out of the frying pan , into the fire , is bad ; and out of Vaudeville into Musical Comedy , isnt so good either . The man who would : hit a woman is lower than the crawling . snake . Forget yesterday ,- live : for to-day , ¦ for to-morrow never , comes . Smut and a route , never went hand-in-hand . - Be proud of your profession , and it will be proud of you . What difference does it make , where you play , who you play for , so long as you play ? Are you prepared for the Day of Reckoning —INCOME TAX DAY ?

Let s offer some friendship that s going to And STOP all this living in DREAMS .. OF THE PAST . BERT MARION .
