work this season or who have lost
their jobs because of hard times.
Over one-third of the actors and ac
tresses in the United States 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 ide&
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 of Jobs. More than this j
there is no relief in sight. Of the

Their salaries run from $75 to $450

cesses are sent on the road they
play to exceedingly small receipts.
