This Is Music Week at the Palace. To mark the occasion Fred Daab and his orchestra contributed more than their usual quota of false notes. Charles D. Isaacson, editor of "Our Family Music" page of The New York Globe and a special contributo" to The Billboard, was the speaker. He echoed the sentiments voiced on several occasions in these columns as to music and its potency as an entertainment factor. "Music is the greatest en¬ tertainment God has given man," Mr. Isaacson declared. There is no de¬

act, one of the pair playing tlie piano and do¬ ing the nut stuff and the otlier straight. These need only tlie spark of genius to be head¬ lined, as they have a nifty line of songs and deliver them well. A little more dash, more orig¬ inality and they will clean up.

VTe wouldn't be surprified if it wasn't some relation to "The Lights of Duxbury,'' a three-act comedy by the same author, which enjoyed ever so short a run last season. There is some rather good singing in the sketch.
Next came Jack Rose, and the cyclone of applause broke. As usual Jack destroyed a half score or more straw top pieces and acted for all the world as if the prop trees were full of squirrels It was the crowning hour of his career. Hurrah for Jack Rose! He's great!
Seldom outside the walls of our lecitimate playhouses does one see so excellent a sketch as "The Gossipy Sex," which came next. Let it be said at the start that It is not a sex play in the generally accepted sense of the word, not b.v a long shot. "The Gossipy Sex" is a cleverly written, cleverly acted playlet, with clean, wholesome dialog and diverting situation. It Is a satirical gem. Robert Emmet Keane, who heretofore has been hiding his light under a bushel as a monologist, shone forth in the title role. Claire Whitney also displayed no mean histrionic prowess.
Taxie, the canine thespian, hit the applause meter a wallop following in¬ termission, in a novelty playlet, in which he is supported by his trainer, Ed Allen. The latter is a veteran of the big top and one of the foremost animal men in the country. This act is, without doubt, the best "dog" turn in vaude¬ ville It was a decided applause hit on Monday afternoon.

It has been suid that Sarah I'udricii is one of the few actreaseg in vaudeville to maintain a lieadllne iioeitiun wiili a dramatic sket< li. Whether nr not ehc will lontiiiue to maintain that iioeition with her iireM-iit elarnng vebh lc is problematical. It is s trite, jMiurly con¬ structed and iKKirly acted akeiib of the |>ennydrcsdful type, called "I'uftiug It Over." ``I'lilting It 0\er is good," but we doubt if any first class stidiencp will stand for it.
A mure highl.v iiii|>iol>aii|<- sitiiulioii than that act forth 111 this sketeb would be bard to con¬ ceive, and a more faulty ez|ioKition and treat¬ ment of theme would lie dittieult to find. The action lakes iilai-e in a hotel bedroom and Ims all to do with a young lady wlio has eommitted murder to save her brother, and who seeks succor from the occupant. The latter, it de. velnpg, is the son of the isiliee commissioner, and a friend of the murderrss' hrother. In a longwinded rx|>lanatiin of the crime, the girl disi'loNes that the deed was done in self defense. The young mao then confesses that he loves her, and being impi'lled by a strong sense of duty he sentences her to life--a life of wedlock
or one thing we are sure, the author who committed this atrui'iuus sketch should be aenteneed for life, or at least placed under observation. There Is no denying that Miss Padden is an actress of excellent histrionic prowess, but even a very exceileut actress can¬ not liu|ie to put over material which lacks even semblance of merit. The less said about the su|ii)urtiug company the better.

She is a sweet, unsnpliisticated looking little lady, who ought to be in boarding acbool, or some equally safe place. Sbe aurely does not belong in vaadcville. It Is true she has talent. But It is talent of the parlor entertainment or church sociable order. Bhe dances prettily, bat not cleverly; she sings fairly, but not ingratiatingly. Ilowever, Florence is not all to blame.

Jfoticn for injunction was denied on Saturday of last week.
Harry Mountford, when seen at the office of
the American Artistes' Federation, of which be Is executive secretary, said; "This is only preliminary. It was an application for a pre¬ liminary injunction, and It Is but the first step.
"The actors must remember that an applica¬ tion for an injunction is but the first step towards a trial,, and if Messrs. Hess & Kahn, my attorneys, decide to try this in open court, or if they decide to appeal it, or if they decide to transfer the case to the Federal Courts, one of the many avenues which are open to them, I can promise the readers of The Billboard some ex traordinary disclosures.
"Up to the present this action has achieved all I set out tu obtain. It has driven the fierce light of publicity on this affair and has given us much ground work ard ammunition for fur¬ ther battle.
"The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong. And In spite of thonsards of dollars spent In advertising and of letters written by foolish actors to obtain the last three days of next week, the cam¬ paign will go on.

It was a year ago," says Mr. Garrett. "Busi¬

k Fashioning of Librettos
Good and Sufficient Reason for General Weakness, Says Charles Pike Sawyer
Charles Plk* Sawyer recently published some very pertinent paragraphs in tha New Vork Evening Post about musical comedy librettos. Mr. Sawyer, as always, speaks with a great deal of sense on the aubject and with no little feeling. All who have the musical stage in tbrlr mind and hrarlH deplore the vapidity of the average librello and anything that will bring about the writing of better ooea la worthy of atieniiun. Mr. Sawyer saya:
"Much has lieen written about the general weakness--to say the least--of the libn-itos for operettas Hilliert ia dead and has left no accessor. Perhaps, however, there la good and uQlcieot reason fur this weakness. A wall from the afflicted makes it appear sa `1* U the critical fashion,' one says, `to trr. * tbt alary of every light opera or musical comedy with coiitennit. as tbo the author were a dramatist pure and simple, working In the comparatively free conditions of the dramatist, and to be blamed lievause be does not attain to the dramaiisi's reaulta. But the cocditiont nnder which the siory of a musical play has to be designed are by no means free.
'' `In the first place, it is aometbing written for singers and with notion suitable for ac¬ companiment by song. That makes it a special art, at any one will discover who aits down to fit words to a simple music ball dltiy. Tlivn the action must be devised aud the words chosen to suit the idlosyncratiea of the tingers concerned. Tbo whims of the star must be kept In mind. She must have the most conplcoous entrances and exits, to'.ot at the right moment and opportunities for rest between them.
" `Tbat'a only the beginning, and by the time the star baa been auiied, if the librettii-t hat any brains left, the oiliera must be served. The comedian mutt have his due, and so must the tenor, and others in the cast who have a ''puU.'' Then the stage manager comes In. The story must admit of the fre,|ucDt in¬ vasion of the chorus, which must not he kept waiting too long In the wings, and they must hive time out to change costumes, perhaps half a dozen times. The wonder of it all is not that librettos are so unsatisfactory as a role, but that they are written at all.'
"Which la all very well in its way, hut doea any librettiat believe that stars, come¬ dians, tenors, or stage managera ever tor¬ tured Gilbert? Il'i dollars to doughnuts that DO Diemliera of a comi>any drilled by that great librettist ever dared to bat an eyelash. The operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan were written, and the actors and singers had to fit them--it was up to them to do as they were told or ijult, and there is no record of quitters. Some day. perhaps, another pair will appear on the scene and operettas will be written, and produced as written, and the

Gus Hill is giving New Yorkers a chance to

see his brand of ultractiuns by bringing in 'Bringing Up Father .\t The Seashore." It Is

a hokum musical comedy with a lot of langUs

and is god value for the admission price. The

book is an isld-Iot assortment of time-tried

material and is. for t!ie greater part, well

handled by the plu.vers.

The principal comedy part Is In the bands of

Walter Vernon, wlio jilays .liggs. Mr. Vemon

plays the low-comedy Irishman eieellently.

lie gets the Ic.iighs. plays a tiu whistle and

dances a Jig splendidly. Louise Earl plays bis

wife and does it v»ell. She sang a couple of

songs In fho last act to great ai)plau8e. Nel-

Ilandall and Marian Holland both looked well and sang pleasingly. Frank M. Christie

a ill cl and aheiicd Xt ii.on with the comedy

and got away with it in go<id style. Harry

Harvey played a comedy Jew and Shepard Kline was the Juveoile.

The audience liked the show, laughing heartily at the comedy and apiilauding the

musical numbers. The faults of ibe production are those of the management and not the

actors. The scenery is very bad and the first

Seventeen new members Joined the ChOTM Equity in t.'io past week.
The New Vork `'Irene" cliorua is eighty pe* cent Equity. As both of the road companies of "Ireno" are one hundred per cent we hope to have the same report tu make for the New York production soon.
The "It's Up to You" chorus is one hundred per cent Equity.
In last week's deputy report the statement was made that the Equity Annual Show would bo given at the Manhattan Oiiera House. Thl* was an error. The show will be stagi-d at the Metropolitan Opera House, as It was last year.
The diqiuties of tlie iniisicul comedy com¬ panies now playing in New lork have lieeo. asked to convey the invitation of the enter¬ tainment committee to all Chorus Equity members in their companies to take part in the annual show. If, for any reason, tho deputy does not get anmnd to you i-ome to this office apd give your name as one who is Willing to serve anyway. The show is tor the benefit of your organization and anything that helps the organization lieliis you. Every chorus girl and l>oy in New York should bo in the show.
A certain manager who puts out practically all one night stand rompauies boasted that he was going to lia'e a liundrisl per cent nonEquity chorus. In some way he managed to do it. A short time ago the production got near enough New York to get a notice In the New York papers. It wasn't exaelly on Broadway but it was near enough. Gne paper said, "This company reminds yon of the old burlesque days when no girl was too old, too homely or had too bad a voice to get in the chorus." This Is tha best the manager could do when he got a non-Eqiilty cboros.
You have only two more weeks In which to vote on the Equity shop. If you have not yet sent in your ballot do so at once.
\Ve are bolding checks for Miss Vivian West, Doris Warner. Violet Winter, Anna Crawford, Evelyn Warr and lone Ritchie.
How many Chorus Equity members have yoo In your company? What are yoa doing to

The facts revealed in the answering affidavits in my action for injunction against the Loew Circuit and the Orpheum Cir¬ cuit to prevent them from paying over the proceeds of the socalled National Vaudeville Artists' Matinees are of such inter¬ est for the Vaudeville Actor and Vaudeville Actress that I am going to quote at some length to show them what is really occurring.

As all those who studied the article of mine in The Bill¬ board called "IN IIIS TRUE COLORS'' know, the so-called National Vaudeville Artists' Matinees were given because of a resolution passed by the V. M. P, A. on April 17, 1020, which resolution states that ALL receipts of the theaters on the second Friday of April of each year should be turned over to the National Vaudeville Actors' Benefit Fund.

t showed and proved by_ means of quotations from sworn testimony in the Federal Investigation that the N. V. A. Benefit Fund was administered by Messrs. Casey, Goodman and Mur¬ dock.

Several Actors have written to me, stating that they can't believe it and asked for more proof. Here it is in a quotation from the lease agreement between the National \'audeville Artists, Inc., and the 220 West 4f)th Street Corporation of which Mr. J. J. Murdock is the President and about which Mr. Ches¬ terfield, Secretary of the N. V. A., swore that in his dealings with it the only persons he dealt w-ith were Mr. Albee and Jilr. Goo<lman.

". . . Tho Vaudeville >IanaRei"s* Protective Association hereinbefore referred to. having heretofore mnnasred and condiii'tetl u benetlt theatrical iHTforinance for the b<`nefit of the lessee, tlirouirh which iw'rforinance CI-M{T\rX AlONKYS WKKF KXISI.D AXI> WHICH AHF XOW HKLD BY SAID Y.WDKYII.I.F MAXAGFItS* I'KOTFCTIYF. AS.«!0. CIATIOX AS Fl'XD . . . and Intending to conduct and manage other theatrical performances for the lu'ncflt of the lessee (the N. Y. A,), from which further sums are exp<'<ted to 1x5 raised, it Is mutually agreed that . . . for any purpose hereunder, the said lessor (229 West Forty-sivth Street Cor¬ poration) win resort to the fiimls In tlie said X. Y. A. I>eneflt fund and the same .shall be used and devoted to such other purposes, and the lessor (THF: 229 WFST IfiTH STHFFT COUPORATIOX) is hereby authorized, empowered and dlre<ted to HUAW YPOX SA11> X. Y. .\. BFXFFIT FFXl) FOB THF I'l'BPOSFS. In addition, of the purchase of any fnipplles, liquor, cigars, cigarettes, or any other articles or things."

This lease containing this contract and agreement is signed by the N. V. A. and the 229 West 46th Street Corporation by their different officers.

This conclusively shows that the V. M. P. A. handles the monev from all the.'^e benefits.
The affidavits made in this action reveal figures which will be startling to the .Actors.
Mr. T.eopold Friedman, an attorney and the Secretary of the Loew Circuit, swears as follows:

"The resolution passed on .Xpril 17, 1920. As a result of

that rt'soliition there was paid by the (icfpndant Comp.-iny to

the X. Y.

... all of the re<vlpts of vaudeville theaters

etuilrolhMl by It on the day set aside In 1920 by .sjtld resolution,

approvimatcly tlvc sum of $«..a00.00."

T want cverv \'audevillc Actor and .`\ctress to see the full force of that. The Secretarv of the T.oew's Circuit swears that ALT. THE receipts OF AT.T. the T.oow's Circuit of that Friday in 1020 were approximately the sum of $6.3(30.
·Another attorney. Mr. Benjamin B. Kahane, is the Secre¬ tary-Treasurer of the Orpheum Circuit. He swears:

. . o%vners of Yaiidollle Tlteaf«*rs have ngre***! to de¬ vote and donate THF FXTIHF HI TFIPTS for the performaiu'e to ghen at the various TheaPTs ownu^l hy them. . . .
``That the aggregate amount «loiiated hy the various i'or|>orallonH «>p<'rating ThiNifers that ·ompose the OrplM'um FIreidl from the lienetit performanee given In .Xpril, 1920, W.\S M'S.S THAN SIO.OOO."
*`Tl»e amount exixxded to be «loii,'it»'d from the Itenefit I*erformanee (of tbe Orplienm Clreull) on A|>rll 8fb. 1021. will not exeee<l tids amount nn<l from present Indications will In all probability be less tban S7.a00.00."

T want cverv A'andcvillc .Actor and .Actress to sec the full force of that. The Sccrctarv-Trca'^nror of the Orphenm Cir¬ cuit swears that .AT.T. the receipts of .AT T. the Orpheum Thea¬ ters of that Friday in T020 were less tlian Sio.cxDO, and tliat Friday, .April 8, will only bring $7.5(30.

To make it more simple: The receipts of all of Loew's Theaters and all the Orpheum Theaters in the United States and Canada on the second h'riday afternoon in April, 1920, ac¬ cording to the sworn testimony of their Secretaries and Treas¬ urer. were not $16,300.
If U makes the Actors of this country laugh, as much a,s it made me, when I read that, this is the biggest laugh of the year, so far.
Of course, Pat Casey had to swear to an affidavit. He refers at length to the \Vhite Rats' Strike of 1917, and then `Swears that "since the strike the relation between them (them, being the X'audcville Managers and Vaudeville Artists) has been more harmonious.''
r'ven Casey admits that the strike brought about harmonious relations, though Casey's idea of harmonious relations is not exactly my idea.
And of course Henry Chesterfield had to swear to an affi¬ davit and in his affidavit I find the following paragrapTi:
`Tie furtber state*? that there Is no alllanee tHTw-i'cn the X'. V. -X. and an organization known as the X'. >1. I*. .X."
Well, a great deal depends on what you call an "alliance." Mr. Chesterfield testified in the Federal Investigation that the money to start the X. A'. A. was borrowed from the Vaude¬ ville Managers' Protective Association and the figures prove that the N. V. A. still owes money to the V. M. P. .A. We all know that the nominal officers of the N. V. A., Ed¬ ward Davis, President, and Chesterfield, Secretary, do not con¬ trol the organization of which they are the chief officers. To those who know this fact but will not admit it, let me quote a letter of Mr. Albee to some Actors, dated March 16, 1921, (not one month ago).
These are exact quotations from Albee's letter:
``.March 16. 1921. `·X'our letter received. ... `·Having iK'cn delegated to represent the V'aiidevlIIe Afanagers' Protective .\'*so<`latlon and with the work of the X'ational Yandeville Artists. Ine., at tlie present time essentiully In niy care, . . . ".'Some people say. `Is this an artists* <`hib and Is It run hv artists?*. I will sav to yon frankly.XT TIIFI PHKS*FXT TIMF. IT IS BFIXG HUX BY ALBEE."--(.Signed) E. F. .MJIFF..
Mr. .Albee says that he has been delegated by the Vaude¬ ville Managers' Protective .Association, and that he is running tlie N. y. .A. Now if he is running it, of what use are the Presi¬ dent and Secretarv, Chc.sterficld. except as a camouflage, except to conceal from 'the public THE FACT THAT THIS AC¬ TORS' ORGANIZATION (?) TS RON BY A MANAGER?
There are a lot of other amusing statements in Mr. .Albee's last letter which I will take up later on, as space forbids just now.
If these benefits were really for the benefit of the .Actor, I would sav nothing, hut they are merely to keep the Actor in a state of content. .Assuming that the entire amount of $16,300 is carried as an insurance fund, how much protection does that provide for the Actor?
The only insurance that is worth a moment's thought is where the Actor insures himself, where the Actor takes care of himself.
"Heaven helps those who help themselves," not those whom Albee helps.
The only way the .Actor can help himself is hy helping other .Actors. The only way he can insure his profe"'ion and himself while he lives is by joining the AM1?RICAN ARTISTES' FEDFR.ATTON.
The only way he can insure himself when he dies is by joining an Inmrance Society. The Equitable, The Mutual, The Postal, The Fidelity, The Travelers, The New York I.ife, etc., etc., are all good Insurance Societies when yon die.
The onlv Insurance Societv for the Actor while he lives is the AMERICAN ARTISTES' FEDERATION.

Why, Ob why, can't they stick to the front or mone.T end and keep their managerial ( . » noses out of things way beyond their tinderstanding? Keep at them until yon can get under their thick skulls to stick to their "last" and give a free hand to the experts in charge of their respective departments.

The ijttie pj,, of South HaTPu. Mich., made
* ^<'>'7 positive demonstration of the fact this winter that the people will support a future Course with a vim when the course Is made up of talent of the ripht caliber.
For four years there had heen no Chautannua or Lyeeum in South Tlaven. Whenever the busi¬

Ray Morton Hardy went to South Haven three years ago as iMInlster of the local Congresstlonal Church. Mr. Hardy believed thoroly in

the Chautauqua and Lyceum ideal and purpose.

T.Aist summer he persuaded thirty-eight of the


local business men to underwrite a Lyceum Course of five members, the total cost of which was to be Sl.C.OO. The first number on the


course was Margaret Romaine, a priraa donna soprano from the Metropolitan Opera House, whose concert alone costs more than the aver¬

IMr. Hardy, in putting this course over. se. cured the co-operation of every institution civic, religious and educational--in thcentirecity. ITls I.yeeum eommittee was made up of one representative from each lodge, church. City Council, Board of Education, Chamber of Com

merce and the literary clubs. This placed every

civic organization on rocord aa favoring the

course snd put them hack of it to such a de¬

gree that the course simply could not fail. Nht

only that, but it gave birth in that city to

the community idea and a community elnh has

recently been organized whose purpose is to

co-ordinate the interests of every element In

the eommnnlty snd the surrounding farming

section for many miles for the building of a

finer snd better fSoiith Haven.

Mr. Hardy has recently resigned the pastorate

and for the next few years will give his en¬

tire time to the Fhautaupua and Lyceum field,

lecturing irpon the subject of Community and

Social Rfflcicncy. He begins s thirty weeks*

tour under the direction of the BsdcHff Chau¬

that totir he will spend several weeks in the

near ^^r. Haffel--There are lota of readers of The Billboard outside of the theatrical pro¬ fession. I am one of them. I am also a mem¬ ber of the American Ix-gion.
I read in The Billboard yonr criticism of an act that was presented at the Palace Theater. New Yor'g. called the "Yip Yip Yap Hankers," in which .voii insinuate that war plays are passe., I beg to differ with you and your criti¬ cism; 'the way it is worded it is a direct slam against the boys who fought and bled for YOU over there. It is all in the point of view. Yon have a right to your opinion, hut if is ON'B MAN'S OPINION. 1 do not believe that it Is the right opinion and I be¬ lieve m.v brothers will coincide with me in my views on this subject I especially (dtject to that part of .vour criticism remling "A per¬ former in army nnlforin being the signal for wild applause has long since passed. Now please let me ask yon some questions.
Vre WE. who spilled our life's blood, to beso soon forgotten?
Do yon realise that WE. who have served over there and suffered, have that human weak¬ ness to brag about onr exploits, r'cife our narnow escapes, glory in onr conquests, and. when we go to a theater with our parenta. friends, sweethearts o'* relatives and see a play that brings these scene* to them, swell mi with pride? \iid it gives ns a ihanre ti> Ihe oxer again the most awful, fascinating, dangerous and natriotle period in our lives. Should this he taken awny from us hy stieh rrltlcs as yon?
Tlie tales of war are never passe to the old veteran of the civil war. Neither is It a here to the friends, sweethearts, parents nnd relatives of the bov who has gone thru the WOHI.n'S C.HFATEST WAR.
T have not se,'n "Yip Yip Tap Hankers'' They may hear erltielsm of the proper sort. .Ml 1 ohject to Is fho wording of your erifleism. which is to say the least, a slight upon the heroes who de-erve more consideration for the suffering they have gone thru.
A'ours tmlT. (Signed* FABT. C. .TOHNSON. SS, X. .American Street. Philadelphia, Pa.
Manistee, Mich. Editor The Blllhoard;
Tn S' nniilng tlie "Open T.etters'* column T itotIc,.il an article which was pnhllshed In ··Tavern Talk." a hotel Journal, headed: "Show people hnrt hotels."
I have been In Ihe theatrical hiisiness for some time and have always stood for Ihe bet¬ terment and npllft of the profession nnd I feel what I write Is not a "knock" hnt a gentle

reminder to those whom the shoe (Its. The writer of the article is not altogether wrong in most of his statements. I know of many instances that arc Just as he says they are.
How often have I heard some member of the profession come into the office of a hotel and iiak (not in an undertone): *'What's your theatrical rate?" or ("What rate do you glxe the profession?" Not giving a thought to the fact that there are half a dozen or more saleainen in the office who arc paying the regular price and not getting a rate.
I'liis ia the one thing th/lt "cheapens" the profi'Hsiim in the eyes of many a hotel mana¬ ger us well as the hotel guert, whether he be salesman or otherwise.
ITien again I ask any real honest performer who hat been with an organization where some lad.v and soiiielinies a gentleman carries a pel, gciierall.v a d"g. The hotel man who believes in sanitation and hygiene will perlnps say (not always in a polite manneri; *`\Ve do not allow diats in the riHims." But Mr. or Mrs. Artist grabs "il'ido" or "Ciitie'' hy the collar, chucks him in the do-g basket or grip and does a monolog free of charge for the benefit of the guests, ending up with: "If y.iu can't keep the dog In the room with me, you ran't keep me," or something to that effect.
Vow if these self-same people who carry dogs and other pets were lo ask some one where they could find a hotel and this part.v directed them to a dog-kennel, they would feel very much ns If they had been insulti-d Yet they wish to turn the hotel into a dogkennel. I pm very fond of dogs personally, but If I ever cared to carry a dog 1 should most assuredly ask the hotel if I could keep him in a store room or some fit place for animals.
Thc^ we do have the class who eiK,k, eat and sleep in their rfH«ms iiind tliey do it on the hotel proprietor's gas or ,`Ieetrieity). Many times have I wandered down the hall and called on Mr. and Mrs. A -tor who were busily engaged cooking cabbage on tlielr trunk. Y'es. I might add on several tieeasioiis I have had the privilege to look in these rwuis when they had departed nnd oh! what a lovely, dlrt.v me-'S one would find.
I might also add that the disappearance of towels and sometimes silverware hnpp,'ns to be an art with some of our fellow-arlisis (?( performers (?) and actors i ?). .An-itlier thing, have you ever (perhaps your hearing is badi heard the company coming in tlic licit,d after the show? Tliere are a few people who pay the regular rate and want to sleep a hit and get their mone.v's worth. But oh, such a noise and general racket. Enough to rouse the dead from their slumbers. This class seem to think if the.y are not so noiay some people might not suspect that they are in the theatrical pro¬ fession.
Igistly, but not least, the "three sheeter" who continually talks .shop so loud that every, body knows be Is an artist (?i. actor (?). performer <?).
I.«t ns form clubs or little "gangs" on th( yarions shows or attractions and make it a rule to try and be a credit to the profession by stamping out these evils (and they do exist).
I trust that I will not be misunderstood In any manner. I do not approve of the ·'Tavern Talks" artieles or rather their method of di¬ rectly insulting the profession, hut every hon¬ est fellow actor or artist will agree that such cases do exist.
1 also wish to thank Mr. Uamphell for the stand he takes and for his friendship toward the profession.
Yours for a clean, upright, honest and admlf* able profession.

eemed to consider it a trivial matter. On
one occasion, when I Joined a show band--now
this is almost unliellevable--I found part of the
hand In high pitch and i art in low. And they
had been playing that way all season np to
the time I Joined. The manager fold me hi*
band was awfully bad, hut he didn't know whar
the trouble was, tnl asked me to "try end
straighten it ont a Httie." Well, helieve It or
not. three of the home were in low pitch, four
of them were In high, and the baritone, a good
musician, was Just between. "Tried to meet
them half way," he said. Well, we had to
do a little amputating of pipe on some horns,
had to get the clarinet out down by a gun¬
smith and then we sounded pr-'tty go's!. The
manager, Mr. Teagarden a fine ol.I man, came
to me a few days later and s.ald: "Mr. Ee'er

So ran the headlines on t!ie series of adverti.sements which were re¬ cently run in most of the theatrical trade papers in an endeavor to hold Mr. Mountford up to the scorn and reprobation of vaudeville artists.
Did the advertisements accomplish their purpose? We think not to any ver.v great or wide extent, because the vaude¬ ville artists of America are too well informed on the whole, and because, furthermore, they have of late formed the habit of thinking things over carefull.v and logically before jumping to conolusions. The thinking artists will .say to themselves: ``.Xdvertisomonts. eh? Ads must ho paid for Wlio pai<1 for these? Why?" And the answer must be that the ads were written, inserted and paid for by .some per¬ son or persons who had something to gain in thus attempting to dis¬ credit Mr. .Mnuntfortl and direct against him the execration and de¬ nunciation of the profession. That alone would be sufficient to give the judicious artists pause and send them scurrying after the real facts, and, as a matter of facL that is exactly the manner in which the great majority of them reacted to the advertising onslaught. And what did they learn? Simply that Mr. Mountford had pulled and successfully put over another stunt! As the nature of the coup dawned on them, as they gradually dis¬ cerned the real motives that prompted it and realized what It promiBed, their criticism ceased, their impatience was dissipated, their faces lit up with understanding which rapidly changed into admiration. His devoted and unquestioning followers, his proponents who accept his doctrines but reject his leadership, that considerable contingent that is willing to be shown, and even many of his out-and-out opponents, with one accord, all united in saying: "Very, very clever," And so also says The Billboard. We know that Mr. Mountford has by no means the unlimited* re¬ sources of the interests he is fighting--that ho is compelled to resort to stunts from sheer economic necessity and utter inability to compete In monetary outlay, and his resourcefulness, inventive genius and strategical expertness command our most unqualified admiration. He contrives to keep his cause alive, to keep It before--and right before--the artists all the time in spite of disadvantages, discourage¬ ments, delays, defeats and handicaps that would have dismayed and ^topped any other man we can think of long since. He is white, he is true blue to his adherents, and he is a red-blooded
fighter. His colors are all right.

Editorial Comment

Vaudeville lias obtained the center of the stage and the calcium once more.
flood! r.ut why must this prove the signal for turning on streams of personal abuse and vilification? To let in the .sunlight is well. Light is needed, but when it is applied with burning glasses it only makes the vic¬ tims squirm, jump and curse. Argument leads somewhere. Name-calling is idle, vain and profit¬ less. It helps no person and it aids no cause. Fighting never proved the right or wrong, the justice or the injustice of any issue, but when disputants will not argue and will not arbitrate it provides the only w'ay to a settlement. The settlement is seldom enduring. As a rule it lasts only as long a.s It takes the loser to recuperate and ag.iln get Into fighting trim. There is reason to believe, however, that the fairer and cleaner the fight is made the more

business game successfully, ` following rules" far more scrupulously than many of|our other great American cap¬ tains of industry. The same goes 'for Mr. Murdock, Mr. Goodman, .Mr. Casey and the balance of his chief aides and lieutenants.
True, he has built a machine that is marvelous In its mechanism, awful in its strength, power and eai»arity, and terrible in its efficiency, hut even in this he was instigated, taught and en¬ couraged by the actor and aided in developing and perfecting it.
The fact remains, as ve liave re¬ peatedly asserted, that he himself is just a shrewd and very sueeessful bus¬ iness man. with most of the virfue.s and few if any more of the vices of his kind, and to picture him otherwise is folly. Nothing will be gained by it.
On the other hand, the recent fusil¬ lade of defamatory fire from his camp directed against Mr. Mountford. is ex¬ tremely reprehensible and highly dis¬ creditable.
Mr. Mountford Is none of the things he is called--not at all the odious person he is described.

Everything points that way. We have hot been tii>ped off. We have not had the slightest hint from any official or reliable source. Wo vi'iilure the prediction solely because in our estimation conditions and events are rapidly ripening that will force a light. ,\nd, moved by this belief, we plead for clean and fair fighting, not only for the honor and reputation of the prfifession, hut that victory, even tho it go (as it nej'ds musti to tho stronger will nevertheless go to .a f.alr fighter. There Is a chance that .a fair fighter will triumph fairly and fairly with the vanquished thereafter. Rut if the liout is won on a foul or by resort to unfair means no good will acefue to anybody, the winner least of all. The only outcome will he the waste, havo<` and loss of time and money. Nothing will have been settled, nothing advanced and notliing gained.

By W. W.
WllKN "n* upeaki nf a circna lot the pic¬ ture of a vacant Odd, pirhapa don-n by the railroad tracka. or Ilia roiumona ju^t tx'.Toitd the school bouiie, or maybe the fair cro'in'ls at the edge of town, come to mind. Iliai'a where the city of billowy canvai usual¬ ly ariaea 9<>me sunny morning in the old home iciMi uVn the show is out on the road.
Hut not so when the seunon opens In Ne>v York i'lty and the Itlngllng lleos.-B.'irnum A: lisiler Combined Shows auspiciously start their
tour. It is then that thn time honored, historical old structure. .Madison Sqti.ire G.irden, I* fbr the time being turned into a t ircuf "lot." Instead of the big top. luenagcile, side-show, dressing, and numerous other tents, if is all under one high vaulted roof, with C Triilers and side rooms, subterrauean tKisenients and winding stairs. Instead of the flapping side walls huge piles of stone and hriek line tbe si.Ie streets, weather Stained and dingy; a stene pillan-d arcade runs along the .Madison square inenue side and above all rises the con¬ spicuous tower with the one word ··firens" cinMaioned in electric lights.
Across from the tower is Madison 8<iuare, a breathing spot In the Mg elty that skirts Broadway from Vorly third to Twenty-sixth street, rainod iu story and song, a grass plot In a fori't of sky-sc'apeis, worn, trouking benches alwa.vs occupied la fair weather hy idlers, derelli ts and weary men. always shifting, everchaugliig. as far from the wiiirl of bol.v city life as tho on a deseit is the nearest ap;ro.ich to a olntis lot that the metropolis ran t>oast of.
Contr.'st lids with the aver.ige location on tbe read where the lot usually skirts a city street nr dusty road. Where the crowds swarm over the r<ugb tufts of grass, stumbling across nneven stretiln s. kicking up the dust or cinders, unronsrlnns of ctindltbins underfoot Iiecanse the eyes and mind are fixed on tbe sea of eaDv.-is ihrad lioMlng untold wonders, the gaudy sideshow hanners, the red and g"ld wagons and above all the tdare of the liands and the happy chatter of the pb-jrure seeking crowds.
In New York the crowds arrive by surface, elevated or subway trains. Other hunrtrels slight from is vis and town cars. Oroups of merry cbildien chap¬ eroned h.v wealthy. indulgent part nts or over-arjlcus niirsee, are assisted from luanrlous llriousines in front of the arehed entrance bv liveried gtotmis. They mingle with the lines of ticket puo'lasers and all flock up the stone steps ef the garden together. Inside they are separated Info the boxes, choice reserved sec¬ tions. or clamber to the cbesper loeaflens high up In the loji galleries.
You know whit the ``back door" of the big sli'w is nut on the road; the feature acts with their (ory hiingaliw tents, the Mg dressing ten's with thfir rows and rows of trunks el.'Se together; dividing canvas walls for privacy: the I'anil top. the horse tents; the prop wsgons, all snro'unded by a sagging side wall n> l more than wsist high but siiftb lent to keep out the . iirinns At the garden the back door might be ths entrsDoe to any waiadiouse, and aside fioui a fluiuing eigbi-shect floated near the disw and I'le few atlai hea lounging near the door keeper, there it nothing to indiiate a ctrens Tlmu-aiids I'.iss on the Fourth .\veiiue ears, or In autos, witliiuji giving the liullding a glance Wore It the canvas city we see on the, trsftle vv iM i.e Ktalb'd In one minute.

Following the crowds that are surging toward the big arena at tba suggestion of A1 White, who flutters around "moving 'em in," as busy

as any old hen with a trcod of ducks, we ooxe


past the draiMTies of the main entrance. The first objects that catch the eye and impress

one are the three immense, massive, specially

presario in the garden. The crowds are ad¬ mitted to his attractions on one general ticket. He dca^sn't have to coax them. They are al¬ ready sold. To see him at Ills best catch him at work some broiling hot summer afternoon on a sandy lot out in .Michigan, in Ills I'alm Bca< h suit and a I'anama hat, his silk shirt open at the throat, or a hankerchief tucked around his collar, hia hands tunned and sunhurned, with a (1st full or yellow paatebo.'irds and the ends of a few crlB[) greenbacks trailing thru his Ungers. When lie leans forward from his high box in front of the Annex, adjusts his sun timhrella at a more protecting angle, fixes his eagle eye <-n some siisreptllile group at tlie edge of a curi¬ ous crowd and begins to extol the wonders lectured on the bellying banners back of him. When be starts the side-show spiel In that jM-iietrating, resonant voice of his, every note vibrating with tense sincerity and overwhelm¬ ing conviction, then is when you want to ``gather in a little closer, neighbors."

tunstructed steel .arenas that tower upward from each of the three ring banks. Covered with strong netting drawn to a peak above, with heavily barred sectional tunnels ready to be rushed into place connecting the cages of the new trained animal acts with the arenas, there is an appearance of perfect security, so far as the spectator is concerned.
But the second iiniircssion is that there is 8 world of grief in store for somebody on the ro.nd this summer. Mickey Graves bss a large and clflcient crew of iiroperty men who moved like clock work in the garden when it came to dismantleir.g the steel set. But im¬ agine a wet night on a muddy lot and a long haul, and this mess of steel grating to be loaded, to say nothing of the cages of priceless trained occiii ants that cannot be replaced, and if Fred Warrell, general superintendent, doesn't add a few more grey hairs to his already fair acciiiiiulation it will be because luck is with liitii all tbe time.

In language that would make any college professor or orator of ancient r.reece writhe with envy, he depicts in graphic details the delights of investigating the m.vstertous regions beyond the canvas walls and of persi>nally meeting each and every one of this entire congress of curious people. Then it is only the stony hearted yap or the diiige who has spent his last thin dime at a snurk stand who can resist the temptation to go in.

Gisnt George Auger in a flaming uniform that is doubly conspicuous on account of his size. The iingeant is a well selected and gorgeous prelude to two hours and a half of circus en¬ tertainment, the pick of the world of track, ring, stage and aerial acts, at times confusing and bewildering to the spectstor on account of the multitude of Indirld'Jal features, but pre¬ sented in a masterly and orderly fashion that indicates many exjiert guiding hands and a life¬ time arranging experience.

\ genuine novelty and one that has already caused no end of talk and newspaper comment is I,oreIIo, the man with the revolving head, nis neck dislivatlun 1? something marvelous and is performed with ajiparently little effort and none of the grewsorae effects that might easily make an act of the kind objectionable. There is Irene Waldron, an armless phenom¬ enon; liosc Foster, another half lady rivaling Mile. A. Gabrielli; Miss Igiura, a towering giantess; the three brothers Ilohne. "world's fattest trio, ' snd a dozen other new attrac¬ tions secured at least for tlie garden engage¬ ment, ultl.o Some of them may not he taken on the road.
.''haring honors with the human freaks, and in fnct taking the headline position on the An¬ nex MU. is John Daniel, the only genuine gorilla in capitlvity. We were there one morn¬ ing while Jolin was having his picture taken and ho certainly is a contnry cuss. He will make the finest kind of copy for the press boys. The New Y'ork papers have already carried feature stories on his crossing the At¬ lantic as the sole occupant of s steamer sfaterism; how he must have his brandy toddy regul.xrly; his Inrlinntion to undress and go to bed whenever be has company, and a thousand other angles of the doings of this man-formed

With the circus performance in full swing, every box occnpled by wrell-dressed, cultured and attentive spectators, every seat taken in the rows upon rows of reserves, every gallery jammed clear to the top-most section, high up in the girders, the garden makes an impressive showing. The building has never been so bril¬ liantly illnmicated ss this season. The ti<mendous arc lamps and countless rows of mazdas have been supplemented by dozens of flam¬ ing arcs and spotted along each side of the first balconies are clusters of powerful spot¬ lights that accentuate the illumination of th» feature acts. No flag decorations are used this season and none are needed. The garden, gr^iwn gray and dingy thru years of service for all sorts of public gatherings, never looks quite BO gay and festive as when the circus comes to town.
But in spite of the colossal collection of arenic s'tlendurs that the Bingling Brothers spread be¬ fore the metropolitan audiences each season there is something lacking, and the atmosphere of the road shew, the city of canvas, the thrill of the big top, isn't there. The city chap may sit in the same box that a Y'anderbilt or a Gould may have occupied at the horse show, tut he misses a lot that his country consln gets when be squats on tbe blues out in South Bond,

lirute with an almost human brain.

BeaivnaNy or unreasonably, the kiremt has been accused of many sins, but there sounds a food deal ot truth in a new charge that is bp'iight by the offlclal organ of the Variety Artietes' Federation. It seems that people are tar less ready to clap perfnrrasneeg which may. for all their silence, have left them quite well pleased. It Is a serious matter for the perf rmer--from his point · f view the theater becomes a real "Heart¬ break House" if those in favor fail to "signify their approval in the nsual mranner." .Ipplause in the right plaee ia a real part of the suijc essful stage spectacle, and unless w'e are to remodel our whole conception of the theater it is not fair to the actor to with¬ in Id it.
The new charge against the kinema is that, in effe<'t. it is remodeling our concep¬ tion of the theater. There ia no p int in applauding a photogr:iph of something that happened six months ago at Isis Angeles, and the "movies" had not been long cstabllslied In our midst before even those wli.' were deeply moved by them discovered that there was s metbing a little ridii nloiis about letting emotion overflow Into applause. So the kinenm ac tor -- or the transferred sliade < f him--agonizes most strenuously, and the result is taken in (-'niplncent silence. This is tiie tradition that is being carried forward Into the real theaters and music halls, says the variety perforn:er. and this is why. Judging bv applause. It Is geting far m' re dlllicult to shake an audience from Its new stolidity. ' The aiidieii. e is leariili.g. in f.'ct. to take everything and give nothing in D'turn--which scctinds very i»r-cbable indeed, seeing how much tempestuous action and emotion is offered by the kinema without any expectatl'-n of applause. But with the thtvater the bargain Is a bad one for b- th s.des of the fc-otlights a cold house de¬ serves, and frequently gels, a cold performance. The kinema seems, in fact, to be a blacker sheep In the theatrical world than had been suspected. It not only takes for good as many theaters as it can from the poor actor, but is making It impossible for him to play with satisfaction In those that are left.--MANCHESTER GCAKDIAN,

We sometimes ait and think for hours about the unkind word we have spoken to another. We dwell at lengtli on our ncglei t of opportunity when it cams our way. Broken hearts and hn>ken promises concern us greatly. There is the feeling that we have not done all we could for the betterment of our fellows.

It la one thing to be aorrcwful for a wrong, and quite another to regret having done it.

Every man Interested in the promotion of outdoor entertainment is seeking the answ«`r to that question. The fair secretary, the park mana¬ ger, the lyceum and Chautauqua promoter, all must figure rain as an ele¬ ment of more or less cost in outdoor entertainment. But this question, as well as thousands of others as imivortant. are answered in The Billltoard. You may learn how, in spite of rain, the balance was on the right aide of the ledger.
Prove this to your satisfaction hy looking thru the current issue, or, better still, send in your subscription and save the difference in the cost. You will need The Billboard ever.v week during the summer season. It's the ready reference of the show world.

the letter, and answer, but the letter was re¬

turned, with the notation, ''No auch afreet In

the iKist-ofllce officials at Massrna were sur¬

Widely Advertised in Frisco--Many New Faces With Show
San Francisco, April 12.--.\1 G. Barnes* big four-ring wild animal circus comes to thia city next Wednesday and, thanks to a busy brigade and the good work of Frank Cassidy and Tom Ileeney with the local press, every man, woman and child in Sail Francisco knows of It and is anxiously awaiting the cirrus' ar¬ rival.
That AI G. Barnes* advent here this year will lie crowned with buocess is an assured fact, foi San Francisco is "cirrus hungry,'* us are all the cities of this secti.m of tlie i?tate. ThU fact was amply deiiiniisiriied Saturday at Oakland, Just across the bay, where, in order to accommodate all comers, it was necessary for the AI G. Barnes Show to give four per¬ formances, two matinees and two In the even¬ ing.
While the show played Oakland a Urge number of San ITan-'lsi-o people availed them¬ selves of the opportunity to get an advance peek at it and were well rewarded for their effort, for never in its history has the Al G. Barnes Circus come up to the standard that It maintains this year.
As last year '`Alice in Jungleland." a gorgeous spectacle in which the entire com¬ pany takea part, is one of the outstanding features of the big ahow, and with Martha Florine In the role of Alice proved a source; of delight to the Oakland audiences. Mabel SfwW with her fourteen trained Bengal tigers la, as always, the one feature atlracfion of the show and furnishes a real thrill when she con¬ cludes her hair-raising act hy wrestling with* "Rajah.** one of the largest and fieroeat of the animals.
There are many new faces in the Barnes aggregation this year, tho the old fimiliar ones are still In evidence. Clieerful Gardner haa entirely revised hia art. whicn is more entertaining than ever, .\usttn R. King demon strates with his rebras 11i.n these animals are wonderfully capable actors, despite the general belief to the contrary.
Vera Venable presents another hair-raising act with her trained pumas, and Martha Flcrine with the linns prot ea herself a won¬ derful misfresB of these sa'aee animals. Pearl Hamilton manages the leopards In a capable manner and furnishes her quota of thrills to the cirrus patrons.
And here must lie said that under the capable direction of Kdward A. W'oe<-kener, Al G. Barnes* Circus possesses an excellent band. Mr. W.ierkerer himself a most rapalde musician, haa surrnundeil himself with a galavy of musical talent, producing a band that compares ftvorabl.v with the biggest and best concert bands of the country. He Is deserving of much credit for his arhievement
One more feature of the Barnes, Show is the singing of Bessie Harvc.v, "prims' donna of the white tops." who won round after round «-f applause at each of the Oakland per fornian* es. She has In her voice a quality that thrills her aitdtenres and n>oiinted on a big white horae presents a striking figure.
As heretofore, the famous Barnes trained sea Hons preve an entertaining feature of the show this veiir under ilm direction of Captain Daniel Williams, while the Itear act under A. C. King is at its best.
Captain Ricardo furnishes more thrills when he battles twelve huge .Nubian lions In the big arena, ending his dailng performance by Jump ing the Inioiense beasts over tlie hurdles
Clown alley was augmented when Jack Klip pel Joined the show in (iiUland and presents a array of talent lliat comes up to the wildes exyiectations of tlie sm.ill boy patrons of the show.
"ffklnny" Dawson, who ia handling the press wifh the show, is meeting with much success Judging from the numtier of notices in the Oakland papers, and has won scores of friends among the newspaper men of that city.
Among the recent visitors at the quarters ol the Lombard & Hathaway Shows at I,exingfoB, Mass, were Tommy G-'rmin. Tommy Veasy, Jimmie Ta ng. Johnnie Mack, A- B- Christie and C. P. Farrington, general agent of tlie Lin coin Bros.* Circus. Among the new arrivals at quarters are Cliarb'S Miller and his rougli riders, with twelve horses, w'lo will put on the Wild West concert. The hln w will open at Lexing'on M.iy 2.
Johnnie Mack has one of the nenlest framed side-shows the writer has ever seen on the Koiabapl .tr Hathaway Shows. He has all bis people booked for the seasim.
Temmy Brown and John J. Harmon have left the city to lain the No. 1 car of the John Robinson Circus. The boys in the Donnelly shop presented Brown with .i gold watch, and Harmon with a diamond stick pin.
Warren J. Sullivan, laat season on the No. 3 ear cf the Ringliiig.Barni'm Show, has recehed hia call for May 2. lie is one of the "sheet 'em np" boyo of the old school.--FOREPADOD wniiia

Dear Rowdy--Say. maybe you can help me out.

His <sin'epti"n of the 'lone pugilist was extremely funny, and reminded me much of the 'baseball stent' of the late Silvers Oak¬ ley. There Is a 'homelike' atmosphere around the Rarnea Show that is aeld- m seen with big shows, due. they tell me, to the fair and eoiirleoiis treatment by the management toward all conne<-ted with the aggr<>gatlon."

Perhaps no one more than they appreciates the opportunity of turning the little tuts over to story tellers. Here they are held breathless with delight instead of being dragged over dusty roadways until, at the end of the day, both they and their purents are utterly fatigued.
Nut the least uf the innovations is the lost children service. If a curious youngster should stray away from its elders now, instead of bay¬ ing to search annmg the throngs for, perhaps, hours together, with all sorts of frantic thoughts running thru their miuds, the parents go direct to the iDforniation booth. If^the child has not already been found and turned over to women who are there for the purpose of taking him in charge and entertaining him, be will soon put in an appearame. At the fair, ail roads for crying children lead to the information booth.

Have yon ever walked around a fair grounds, and walked, and walked, and walked until your tongue lolled out--and you couldn't find a drink of cold water anywhere?
Have you ever seen a perspiring, womout mother doing her levs! best to pacify n couple of tired. Irritable and crying tot*--and no place for her to turn for rest?
Have you ever wanted to find nut when the next train left for Blank--and no one on the grounds seemed to know ANYTHING?
So hav^e we, brother; so have we. -Aud it didn't put us in a frame of mind to enjoy the fair or go awwy with a favorable Impression. Quite the contrary.
But Buch occurrences are bef-omlng less frequent, thanks to the development of an "enlightened aelfisUnesa." The social side of the fair, or rather the social service side, ]s receiving more and more attention. Few fairs ignore it entirely, and many of them are giving special attention to its devekipinect, to the lasting benefit of patrons and the lair itself.
Rest rooms, children's playgrounds, Informstion booths, lost children service--these are -.lome of the visible results of the aocislizatbrn of the fair. And it is not only the big fairs that are making steady progress along this line. In fact, some of the "big city" fairs are far behind their smaller brethren in this respect. But wherever the socializing service has been properly applied tbe results have been so unmistakably beneficial at to convince the most skeptical. Mothers know that they, with their children, can enjoy the day instead of going home worn out from the day's exertions. And, knowing this, they are apt to spend two or three afternoons at the fair, where formerly they went only one (lay, or cot at all. Everyone feels tbe effects of the new order of things. It conduces to good hui^r and aix-lahility, tends patrons home in a happy frame of mind-- and bringa them hack tbe next day.

fair has always been the |ilace where the flneat products of the county have been exhibited, with


the latest and most praetical methods of making them finer still. Here was the human aide ot the fair!
It was net only Hie women and the children in Kent Cot nty who voted the new sort of fair very much werth while. Eierybody was enthu¬ siastic over it. And it was rM only Kent County where the S'M'ial side was developed. In Chippewa County very much the same sort of thing took jilaee. And in tVashtinaw. And in
at least a half dozen other counties. And it will be carried out Jn that many more this year. Michigan ia committed to the get-together idea. The fairs have lieen "socialized" with the co¬ operation of the County Community Councils, thru which Community Service, Incorporated, operates in the .state of Michigan. In Jackson the Idea took such hold that a great "com¬ munity'' tent was erected, with a seating capac¬ ity of .VXi, so that the "folks" could all assemble every day for a soi-ial program and a "sing.'' In at least one other county daily prograina were put on, and in another a quilting tourna¬ ment proved of groat interest to all the women. In most plaees, however, it was the informa¬ tion b<x)th, the department for lost children, the Btory-telliiig and the play ground, the rest tent and the picnicking facilities which made the

music temple near lie center of the grounds and tho program for this yeat's fair has been arranged to show the need and value of such a structure.
