^^Peace hath her victories no less renowned tha^i voaP''

MILTON

O task that’s great has e’er been done Unless keen vision, too, has had its share;

9 Set high its mark in shimm’ring sun.

And led our falt’ring feet to find it there

The N. V. A. has had its goal

To reach the weary, sick, and on God’s Hill A haven build, where every soul

Shall see His love the glorious seasons fill.

Ring out, ye bells of victory!

The Adirondack Lodge is won at last!

And thanks, O God, we give to Thee

That light now floods the darkness of the past

Twelfth Annual "benefit

> M N. V. A. M »

ONIGHT we celebrate the twelfth annual benefit of the National Vaudeville Artists’ Asso' ciation. The recent nationwide observance of N. V. A. Week amply proves the national scope and popularity of vaudeville as an institution not only for the entertainment of the public, but for the record it has made in deeds worth-while outside of the theatre deeds of patriotism, of mercy, of constructive citizenship and of unselfish philanthropy. Individually and collectively the members of the National Vaudeville Artists’ Association have written its name indelibly upon the bright pages of our country’s history. In time of war and in time of peace, at home and abroad, in the face of national or local disaster, as by flood, or fire, or strike, or tornado, or epidemic, the people of vaudeville have led the way in helping and heartening their fellow creatures of all walks of life.

The manner in which the American people in every state, city, town and neighborhood this year, as in years past, have responded to the one annual effort of the N. V. A. to replenish its sick and benefit fund, proves once more, if proof was needed, that Americans do not forget, that they are not ungrateful, that they are as keen to approve and applaud the humanitarian work of people of the theatre as they are to approve and applaud their artistic efforts on the stage. By their participation in the N. V. A. celebration of 1928 in over 1000 American theatres during Easter Week and by tonight’s magnificent assemblages in five of the largest theatres of our metropolitan area, a total of more than ten million of our fellow citizens give tangible evidence of the faith and esteem in which the entire nation holds the National Vaudeville Artists’ Associa- tion and, above all, the fine and unselfish purposes which motivate this annual celebration in aid of the N. V. A. sick and benefit fund.

These five all-star benefit performances tonight presented simultaneously at the Metropolitan Opera House, the Knickerbocker Theatre, the Hippodrome, the Jolson Theatre and the New Amsterdam Theatre have brought together in a mutual cause “the expectancy and rose’’ of every branch of the theatre as well as of vaudeville; great personalities as well as great names, of opera, drama, concert, musical comedy, motion pictures and the circus. Their presence on these programs tonight gives gracious token that they all of them are at one with their compatriots of vaudeville in the great and unending duty of befriending the less fortunate, ministering to the sick and needy, succoring the widows and orphans, comforting the aged and disabled members of the theatrical profession. And in appraising this year’s unanimous response of the Amer- ican public and of the members of the theatrical profession to the N. V. A.’s only annual enterprise in behalf of vast humanitarian enterprises, it is timely to note the enthusiasm and efficacy with which the owners and managers, the operating factors, the employers and employees of vaudeville and of other branches of the show business have entered into the celebration of N. V. A. Week and into this culminating five-ply metropolitan demonstration tonight.

That the entire resources and expert co-operation of the Vaudeville Managers Protective Association would be centered upon the success of this year’s N. V. A. celebration was a foregone conclusion. But that organization outdid itself this time in planning, in conferring, in getting its always highly organized machinery into perfect working order for the big week and these culminating metropolitan events. The peace and pros- perity, the spirit of amity and mutual respect, the impulse toward helpfulness that has come upon the world of American vaudeville, could not he better demonstrated than in the unanimity with which the various circuits great and small, joined in a week’s observance which found Keith-Alhee-Orpheum, Loew, Proctor,

Twelfth <i^nnual "^^nefit

>•$([ CONTINUED

Fox, Pantages, Poli, Stanley Company of America, Wilmer e? Vincent, Butterfield, West Coast, Schanberger, Interstate, Gus Sun, M. Shea, Stanley'Fabian, Walter Reade and all other circuits and many detached and independent vaudeville houses, united and co'operating for the success of N. V. A. Week.

Great humanitarian and popular impetus was given to this 1928 drive in behalf of the sick and benefit fund of the N. V. A. by the main objective, what might be called the paramount issue, of this countrywide campaign. That chief purpose now is to complete and pay for the new model, modern sanatorium at Lake Saranac in the Adirondack Mountains for the care and cure of tubercular members of all branches of the theatrical profession. N. V. A. Lodge, as this health home is called, emplaced upon a magnificent mountain estate of 50 acres purchased for its present purpose several years ago, is to embody all that nature, architect- ural skill, exact science and approved modern methods of medicine and hygiene can do for the prevention and cure of tuberculosis.

At the disposal of patients of all branches of the stage, as well as of vaudeville, it will contain about two hundred single outside rooms with private baths, sun parlors and individual equipments. When com- pleted, with its perfect furnishment, buildings, land, laboratories and permanent improvements, this supreme and most enduring achievement of the N. V. A. sick and benefit fund will have cost upwards of $600,000. By reason of the long and painstaking plans of architects, builders, medical experts and sanitary authorities, this N. V. A. Lodge is looked forward to as the paragon of 20th century establishments for the care of tuber- cular patients.

Its completion will enable the N. V. A. to centralize its until now scattered in incomplete projects in behalf of ailing members, health camps and isolated hospital accommodations in Colorado, Arizona, Cal- ifornia and elsewhere. The economic phase of this mobilization at an ideal spot easy of access to New York City with all of the resources which the metropolis affords, was recognized long ago by the officials of the N. V. A. and those associated with them in planning this perfect sanatorium. Public as well as professional attention has been this year focussed upon this memorable project, an epochal one in the annals of the theatre and expected to set a new standard in the treatment of a most menacing malady.

In this Year Book of the N. V. A. and the historic enthusiasm which it aroused throughout the nation, you will find reproduced upon other pages the proclamations, open letters and generous messages of approval given to the N. V. A. and its philanthropic achievements by Governors, Mayors, Senators, Judges and men and women high in the leadership of modern thought and high ideals. None is forgetful of the proverbial generosity of the people of the theatre; none overlooks the vast and tireless work which has been accom- plished by the sick and benefit fund of the N. V. A. But it will be observed that they lay special emphasis and endorsement upon the main objective of this 1928 celebration, which is, as it should be, the completion and opening within the present year of N. V. A. Lodge which will he a haven of health and peace for stricken members of all branches of the theatrical profession.

By the immensity of N. V. A. Week’s patronage, by these five magnificent public demonstrations tonight, by the oneness of purpose displayed by artists, managers and employees, and by the encomiums of the best minds of the nation, the artists of vaudeville have again been made aware of the place they and their best ideals hold in the minds and hearts of their fellow citizens. They have won and deserved these golden opinions and the best proof of their gratitude is that the N. V. A. and all of its members will continue their efforts to merit the high estate to which they have come.

Clean” smart cracks about these cracking good cleansers go over for a wow every time. Bubbles of laughter froth over the house ! These friendly soapy puns always give the act a hand !

Why? Because they’re popular! Household names on the tip of everyone’s tongue! Known, used, and liked in millions of homes, they daily do a great big job in keeping so many people clean. And washing scenes in your own dressing rooms are evidence of how popular they are with vaudeville stars.

This is the only opportunity each year we have to get in touch with so many stage folk at one time. So here and now we want to tell you how much it pleases us to see how enthusiastically cracks on these popular soaps are welcomed by audiences.
