This marked an epoch in the history of the vaudeville busi- ness. for it was the first time a representative body combined for their mutual welfare and protection. lt is the Hrst time they ever became solidified into an operative body and took upon themselves the safe guarding of each others interests. XYith its objective point, the promotion of closer relationship between the managers and the theatres of the United States and Canada, the uplifting of conditions and the promotion of all that is good in a business way, this organization has Grown with 6 Q v . such rapidity that it is the foremost body of representative man- agers in the country today. Managers who are working toward a common end, the improvement of vaudeville conditions, not only from their own standpoint, but also the standpoint of the patron and the performer. lt is not so very long ago that the vaudeville theatres, were known as the "Variety" houses and were frowned on by all sell respecting people of the better classes, who not only withheld their patronage but was a powerful factor in keeping others from attendance. The organization of which this is being written has been one of the most powerful influences in changing this condr- ' ' - - -1 tion till now, on the dawn of a new era 111 the Show woilri. when vaudeville will take its rank as the foremost amusement ll .vl7l'l",ldf'll'd by Ihr lp-Ll A pru,lrnn Ihr- UU'-.iIlf"Hf.

Manufactured ' ' 1 ' , , by The Precision Machine Co., Inc., 3'7'223wE:5',,2423,i"'" 12 of the country, they wield a power for good in shaping the future dCSt1Il1CS of this immense amusement proposition, now hardly out of its infancy. Since the inception of the plan, several years ago, there have come many radical changes in the " vaudeville situation, in the relationship of the manager to the ,patron and also in his relation- slnp with the performers who play on his programs. Perhaps the most important of these changes was-the deci- sion arrived at during a recent meeting of the Organization, that a new form of contract would be adopted as soon as the com-- mittee, with the aid of competent attorneys could draw it up. This contract now in the course of construction will be one which is fully equitable for both parties, the manager and the actor receiving equal protection, a thing never possible in the past. i Here-to-fore the managers have been at the mercy of the performers in many instances, for while the performer has in- sisted on a so-called "play or pay" contract which if violategl by the managers, has been the cause of untold troubles, the manager had absolutely no redress when the performer failed to live up to his share of the bargain which he entered into.. i Should the manager violate the contract to the smallest degree, the actor did not hesitate to plunge them into legal actions which were, to say the least, expensive or else cause untold trouble in the theatres when the manager, rather than stand on his rights, would submit to demands which were notoriously unfair. l Un the other hand, illness real or imagined, or an offer of more pay elsewhere and infsome cases pure laziness, would cause a performer to break every section of the contract which he had signed for the manager in apparent' good faith. ln fact an in- stance is known Where a performer refused to get out of bed to make a train, thereby causing the manager considerable loss as it was impossible to get another act on such short notice to appear in time. In many cases absolutely no regard was shown 13 HEYWOOD WAKEFIELD I-IAIRS FOR : ITIIEHLTES, Auditoriums, LOCIQGS. Halls, and all Public BuiIcIIr1gS , lil !

The manager will have the same protection as the performer, and with this end in view, the Vaudeville Managers Protective Organization have decided when the new contracts are put in force, to select a committee of arbitration, composed of three members who shall meet as often as is necessary to take up. matters which come before them and settle disputes between the performers and the managers. They shall also be given power to meet a committee of equal size from the performers organ- ization, the two bodies to select another person to sit with them and the decisions of this body to be binding to the manager and performers alike. , T The importance of this can be readily seen and it is the only solution to the constant arguments and petty bickerings which crop up each week and which are always followed by recrimina- tions on both sides. ' Under present conditions it has been possible for some hot- headed actor to wreck a program at any time by withdrawing from it and taking as many acts as they could with them, their demands in many instances being allowed by the management rather than suffer the monetary loss that would result from a closed theatre or disappointed patrons. This sort of thing has worked a hardship not only on the manager, but 3150 011 the other acts. on the program, for they have lost salary in many cases which they could not afford to lose. And it is to overcome just this condition that the Organiza- tion aims at. It does not wish to inflict an uncalled for injury or penalty on any performer and it does in turn wish to be p1'0- tected from the performers and-their advisers.

Its founders and directors not only control its destinies but they also control the destinies of all vaudeville, for it is affiliated with the powerful United Booking Qffices of America in New York, The Great Grpheum Circuit, The Kohl 8 Castle Co. the big Gus Sun circuit and the Interstate Circuit.. From its head- quarters in Chicago, its interests reach out over the entire country from the Atlantic in the East to the Pacific on the Wfest, from Canada on the North and Southxvard to the Gulf of Mexico and the Mexican line.. In no section of this country of ours is this office without its representatives and its theatres. It furnishes attractions for over three hundred theatres, who give high class Vaudeville programs, located not only in Chicago but in the Whole West and South, it provides attrac- tions for innumerable Fairs and Parks and outdoor entertain- ments, its Fair, Band Club, Park and Lyceum department en- joying facilities impossible for any other booking organization for the bringing together of artists and promoters. This huge amusement mart, where one can secure anything from the most elaborate circus intact, a bill of all star acts .as big as one can wish for in a theatre, club, lodge, park or private home, to the lesser acts as are fitted to the requirements is in a pre-eminent position, in a field which has many imitators and 21 " I -' I ' J' We Have Equipped a Great Many Theatres With Our Reflector Lamps, IIIINCH LIGHTS, SUPPLIES, ETC.

One has but to visit the General Qffices to see the vast ntagnitude of this huge institution. On leaving the elevator at the eleventh Hoor at the Majestic Bldg., one is met by courteous attendants, and on being ushered into the large rooms are at once struck by the whir of business activity. In every direction it is a veritable hive of industry, the click of batteries of type- writers, the merry jingle of the telephones, of which there are over titty, the sharp tap tap of the telegraph instrument, all denote the many activities of the place and the intimate relation-- ship which exists between all of the many departments of the enormous enterprise. Busy messengers and clerks rush hither and thither, the many booking agents consulting artists, arranging routes, dis- cussing the merits of different acts with Umanagers, all are busy and through it all runs the ever prevailing rule- of the associa- tion, Fair Play. ' At the fountain head of the whole enterprise is found. the exemplification of the doctrine of fair play, for no matter how small and how trivial the detail affecting any patron of the place, it is not too small for the personal attention and consideration of the officers and directors. . y . ln the company's offices are to be found vast files, indexes and exhaustive scrap books, to which the most knotty problem is referred and straightened out with no loss of time. a No act, no matter hovv humble nor how elaborate is without its record in this vast system almost, as soon as it is produced, as the agents of the vast body are constantly on the alert and re- porting the exact merits of each act as soon as seen, not only from their standpoint but also from that of the audience before whom they saw it produced. 23 I V 4 i I 'w If M ANAGHJRS OF T VAUDEVILLE 1 My :'2 , V ,,,,.,.,...,..,, , ...., 4. f "255r2'2f'fa'-1?s25Ff'f'""'1fr1ff12f5:.',sz:f -"' ' V fy, ..,.f -- --42111: . , - - :'::1:f1Hzs-1 '--ff1f:f5f:1EfEf?

There is no other field of theatrical endeavor probably that stands so in need of powerful organization as the vaudeville one. Sure- ly there is no other where the interests are more varied and there are more people to please. It is the only thing that assures per- fection in bookings. It shows activity and resources far beyond the efforts of the single individual or the lesser manager. Such organization as the VVestern Vaudeville Managers' Association cannot fail to have its good results and while theofficers and directors do not dwell on hollow platitudes about its ofhces, they and the Association stand solely on the merits of 'work accom- plished and the strength and scope of the organization. T There is not a spirit of self praise or vanity in the fact that this association claims for itself a considerable amount of credit for the eminence of the vaudeville Held today, fo-r the rapid increase in the number of theatres devoted to the vaudeville business exclusively which is' best shown by the class of per- formers vvho have in recent years adopted this means of - earn-- ingia livehood and also the class of patrons attending theatres all over the country, the most deserving of the theatre loving public. It is the organization which makes the Western Vaudeville Managers' Association of incalculable value to the theatre owner and manager. With perfect organization and an expert in his particular line at the -head of each department, nothing but good can come to those who book through this organization, especially in view of their vast resources and affiliations, for it is possible to bring the very best talent to your very door. These unlimited resources place it far ahead of any minor agency in its ability to place the proper act in the proper place at the proper time. There is no guessing as to what to do. The experts in charge not only sell so many acts to a theatre each week but they carefully weigh the artistic as Well as the commerclal value of each act, always considered with reference to the wants of the manager. Often there are specialconsiderations brought about by peculiar alignment of circumstances which is discernible 25 OUTHER ,RAILWAY Reaches all Important Cities of the South Satisfactory Service.

Every bill is studied in its entirety. with a view not only of its merit but of the juxtaposition of each act to the other. And so balanced that each act makes a unit of a pleasing whole. i There are none of those petty annoyances which are pre- velant with smaller agencies, there is never a shortage of acts, for with its vast command of attractions it is never at loss for a proper act to best meet the requirements of a certain clientele. Protection is afforded the manager and the performer alike for both sides must lend their services to making all engagements, which results in perfect understanding and better Work. The performance of vaudeville as an attraction in theatres is only assured so long as good faith and fair play characterize the dealings of the artist and managers, one with the other, and the same attitude of both toward the public. To the observance of this ideal the Association has and is bending its efforts with a degree of success that is little short of amazing to all who have Watched its rapid growth. , . ,S.,.

REED HERBERT WILEY General Pa55enge1' Agent Gen. Agt. Passenger Dept. 38 Club Department FENV years ago realizing the grow- ing tendency on the part of clubsand similar organizations to have pro- fessional talent at their entertain- ments, the Wfestern Vaudeville Managers' Association started a department to look after this rapidly increasing branch of the vaude- ville business. It is today another of the very busy departments of this vast enterprise and yearly books acts or attractions at a majority H- A- Robinson- of the leading clubs in the city as well as in the homes of many of the social leaders who wish to furnish their guests with some sort of entertainment. This department is in charge of Mr. H. A. Robinson, an expert in his line, who will place anything from a 'single act to the biggest program such as would .be offered at the best theaters in the land. For the private persons who know nothing of the details of engaging professional talent the department has proven a boon for it relieves them of all the details and at the same time is a source of economic worth. All worryin regard of who to have, what to provide and looking after details regard- ing the entertainments is taken from the hands of those who wish to provide it and done in the most expedient manner by this department. Nothing is too small for the department to handle from the magician or clown at the children's lawn party to a full sized vaudeville program for club or benefit entertain- ment. , ln this department too its relation to the rest of the organiza- tion is apparent for it has unlimited scope to draw-I from and there is no act or collection of acts too big for it to get for an enter- tainment if the appropriation from the club or society, is large enough. Mer. Club Department. Some of the biggest acts of the vaudeville world are con- stantly appearing under its auspicies and there is not a week that several of the best clubs and homes in the city are not supplied with entertainment by it. 39 1 WE SAVE YOU ONE-HALF 0Il NORE O11 Typewritersi Adding Machines, Dictaphones, Duplicators, Multi- graphsi, Letter FOiding.MiaCi1i116S, Addressographa.

Umccs, cAiL'l'lCl'Lll pulwlicily Scrvfcc The General Publicity Service What it does and how it does it a HIS corporation was organized under the laws of the state of Illinois for the pur- pose of handling the press matter and advertising of theatres, acts, actors or actresses, Fairs, Parks, Clubs, Bands and also anything in the commercial line. It is a press bureau, nation wide in scope and unlimited in its ability to secure and place press matter where it will do the most Ofoodg V 6 The prime reason of its organization was the need of someone in the vaudeville- field particularly, who knew and could write under- standingly about vaudeville matter, who could present to the reading public not only the news of the vaudeville world but of those who are prominent in it and who were to becomeiprominent in certain localities. A. H. McKechnie . Never has there been in the past an organized effort to secure all the available data concerning vaudeville, its growth, its methods, and its principals. Never has there been established, here-to-fore, anywhere, a place where those interested, could learn exactly what any act or person in the vaudeville field did, who could write understandingly concerning each act and who could on short notice furnish complete and at the same time accurate press material for any theatre. , This is the purpose of the General Publicity Service in its vaudeville department. This is why the Service of this corporation is of immense value not only to the managers of the theatres but also to the artist who appears in them. With the vast system which it has access to, it is in a posi- tion at almost a moments' notice, to describe any act and tell exactly what it does and how it does it. lt has the accurate pro- gram copy and billing of acts and is ready at all times to co- 49 'I---, 1--n- -I 1 "1-' '- SCE ERY CQFX XTC?

In the old days almost anything which was the press agent game, the public would perhaps take it with a grain of salt, but the good natured newspaper men would publish it out of kindness for a fellow craftsman., But this condition has changed. VVith the com- mercialism of the theatre, the public have ad- vanced as well. They no longer believe stuff about the greatest act in the world, they no longer take heed of the Hashy notices versed, and decorated with all the adjectives in the dictionary. What they want is facts, brief pithy sentences which convey the truth and tell the story. The newspapers no longer publish the flam- boyant notices of former days, even regarding vaudeville at- tractions, what they also want is facts, written in a breezy, inter- esting way, so as to brighten their columns instead of holding the publisher and staff up to ridicule. i That is what the General Publicity Service strivesito do. Be it about a theatre, a production, an act, a fair, a club, a park or in fact any client who desires publicity, it ,gives them in the right way, in the way that will sink in and will be newsy enough for the average editor to print in his co-lumns, not be- cause it is a press agent yarn but because it is a matter 'of news interest which he thinks his readers desire to read. It is upon this foundation that the Service is founded and will have its growth. Maud Daniel For the manager it is an invaluable aid, for no matter if there is a local press agent in your city for your theatre, he only knows what he is told, he has no means of obtaining data con- cerning coming performers other than what they send him, which they often-times neglect to do and if he be the most capable man in the world he cannot write on facts he does not know. For that reason the Service is of value without estimate for the manager. To the performer its value is even greater. 'VVhileit sad to relate, it is nevertheless true that the average vaudevillian 51 a IL ER FRIED N THE TRICAL PHOTOGR PHER 12 South Filth Ave., Chicago, Ill. NCZIT llLll:iUll SU"l1'Cl.

They as a rule have no press sheet, no data to send ahead of them other than a few clippings from newspapers where they have appeared in the past. May be one or more of the members of and act have interesting stories connected with them or their work but they have no means of telling it and they thereby lose a great deal of valuable publicity which, were they properly exploited would be of immense value to them, not only locally but the country over, for the act with the up-to-date ideas is seldom idle and is constantly getting more salary. Ask any manager of a modern theatre and see what he says about the press sheet or a set of notices. ' See if he does not agree as to the value of them. T . Another thing about the performers, they are notoriously bad business people, in fact it is no disgrace to say that artistic temperament and business brains do not mix. They neglect to send billing, program copy, press matter and photographs on time. This is the most important, as much a part of their con- tract as the playing of the engagement, for a part of their salary is paid for the proper advance billing but still it is neglected. This is something that the General Publicity Service does for an act. It takes the billing, program copy, press matter and photos, sends them out each week, getting a receipt from the local manager in every instance and watching it in a way and with a system that precludes mistakes, with the. result that our acts are never, cancelled because this material did not arrive on time. And most important of all the fee is a very small one, only about a couple of dollars a week. Another important branch of the Service is that WC lialidlff advertising for all the papers, giving the advertiser the benefit of our knowledge of type and the printers art and placing the advertising where it will do the one wishing it the most good. For this we charge no fee whatever. 53 l ,glg nun- T 1- Costumes Soubrette regges Goldfmv Silver rimmings ies, ights Make-up u':1cF- 1 ' g will lil, U I' 1 rw-e E'-s .vxrlul iuim- ua a n Sri? if 't'l:fXR5 FRITZ SCHOULTZ E.

William, Canada to Springfield, III. Starting in a modest way with hut one motto, that of square dealing, hoth with their patrons and performers, the three hrothers owning the Allardt Circuit have huilt up a business which will he a lasting monument to them and their theories. In the past year they have gone from the ownership ol a single theatre to the ownership and control of fifteen, and are daily adding new houses to their circuit until it appears that they would have the most complete and leading circuit ol thea- tres in the Middle West. Besides these, they are associated with the Heiman, Butterfield and Thielen circuits, and through the Consolidated Vaudeville Man- agers, Corporation with the Gus Sun and Interstate Circuits, malcing them one of the powers to he reckoned with in Middle West Theatrical AlIairs. S2 .........- i 1 Q 1 While the growth of this Circuit is mar- velous, it is no more marvelous than their treatment to hoth patrons and performers. Every theatre which they own and operate is managed in the most approved manner. There is no detail lor the comfort of their huge clientele in front of the curtain or the performers haclc of it, which has heen over- loolced. Everything is done for the com- fort of all concerned and the result is that they play vaudeville to the hest of pat- ronage in every town in which they are located. From their main offices in the Majestic Theatre Building at Chicago, they send out weelaly some of the most compact, and diversified programs that it is possible to secure. In every instance acts sent are always those that have heen personally passed upon hy themselves so that the chance of failure to please is reduced to a minimum. In connection with the hooking of this large circuit each weelc, a completely equip- ped railroad and press department is in op- eration. The hilling, advertising matter and press matter for each program is spec- ially prepared and sent out weeks in ad- vance. The railroad facilities in each town in their circuit is carefully loolced alter, in fact, every detail of this huge enterp1'1S6 IS placed in the hands of the most expert men, which results in a complete, compaC.t 11119 of attractions which no other circuit C811 equal. 83 f The Our SCHEDULES . . were Fixed 'Trinity me convenience of 0113 Theatrical Fans.

Independent Houses and Managers in this Held are assured intelligent, economical, and enthusiastic service by reason of the fact that the Interstate Amusement Company is primarily an operating Company, owning and controlling a majority of the Theatres booked.
