Over one-third of the actors and ac
tresses in the TJnlted State3 are with
out employment. "The affair was
started through a Jest made by one
of the unemployed," said a member
of the club last night, "and the idea
grew until the dinner was the out
come. Conditions and their causes
were discussed. In all truth the sit
uation is serious and the future is
net pleasant to contemplate." An
investigation discloses that the the
atrical business in America is at the
lowest ebb since 1903, and that it
is likely to grow worse. Managers
whose standing is unquestioned and
who are the acknowledged leaders of
the world of drama give figures
which bear out these contentions.
Naturally they do not care to be
quoted. From these managers and!
other equally reliable sources it was
learned that over 5,000 out of the.
15,000 players in this country are
now out or Jobs. More tnan tnis

Those who attended the
1'jck" dinner are all well paid men.!
Their salaries run from $75 to $ 4 5 0 I
a v.eek. The moment New York suc
cesses are sent on the road they
play to exceedingly small receipts.
i Half a dozen big successes could be
named which are playing to an av-i
erage of $400 a night. In normal!
times they take in $1,200. Either1
i people outFide New York haven't the
, money to sr.ond for amusements or
j they won't spend it. No business is
i being done in the cne night stands,
hesce the shows are being thrown
I into tte larger centers. None of the
i shows makes money. In the middle
! west one of the best known Ameri-i
j can stars played a week to $750.
After the house got its Bhare he
'didn't have enough left to pay sal-!
arles and advertising.
