LONG AND SHORT OF IT Photo by Van Rastus Avery ( Van and Carrie Avery ) The above is a stage door picture of Slim Gleen and Frank Pappa—Frank is the genial stage manager of the Garrick Theatre , Wilmington , Del . While Slim is the tall plant from the audience in Fred LaReine s Electrical Act . Anyone , judging from the above picture , might mistake Frank for one of Singer s Midgets . However , such Is not the case , as many of the artist s who have played Dockstader s will remember him as a full-grown , regular fellow . Slim measures over seven feet in height , and at the time this picture was taken , insisted upon wearing his bathing suit for divers reasons —possibly just to make Annette Kellerman jealous .

At the conclusion of her act , she was recalled so often that when the final curtain rang down she had given forty-e : ght minutes to the still enthusiastic audience .

We studied it thoroughly when spare time presented itself because it impressed us deeply . We would suggest the rcader clip it from the page of the VAUDEVILLE NEWS and paste it on cardboard and glance at it now and then . In front of one s dressing room , mirror is a good place for it ; when in the stick towns it relieves one after a flop . ) Learning the Trade The name of an actor in the cast of a new production reminded a person who knows him of the value of apprenticeship .
