Ruth Roye, at Left, Whose Run Has Broken the Vaudeville Record In New
York, and Lydia Lopokova.
New York, July 18. Eva Tan
guay's vaudeville salary topped the
list but even the expensive and er
ratic Eva never played five straight
weeks at one New York theater.
It remained for a girl whom New
York didn't even know by name to
set this record a little singer of rag
time songs who has been on the
stage only two years, and whose
home is just across the bridge In
Brooklyn. Her name is Ruth Roye,
and the scene of her present activi
ties is the Palace Theater. Coming
in from a western tour a month ago,
she was offered a week there. She
wanted a vacation, but she took the
week's work. She wasn't the head
liner; she was just "among those
present" on the bill.
