SPORTS AND
THE STAGE
BY LEON PRYOR
Denver, Colo., June 12, 1911.
Dear Sir:
The second annual outing and pic
nic of the Rocky Mountain Athletic
Association will take place at Bloom
field park on Monday, July 3. The
presence of every member of the as
sociation is requested, and prepara
tions lor entertainment will be made
on a larger scale than heretofore at
tempted. Besides the members, their
friends and the general public are also
invited. The usual accommodations
of the park will be supplemented with
amusement features, and the finest
dance orchestra in Denver has been
engaged to furnish music.
Transfers to the park gate are given
by any street car line in the city. The
next day is a holiday, so you can set
this day apart for enjoyment with no
fear of it interfering with your busi
ness. A gate admission of 25 cents
will be charged. A souvenir will be
given every person present that day.
Yours truly,
ROCKY MOUNT AIN ATHLETIC
ASSOCIATION.
VICTOR WALKER,
President.
COMING, SATURDAY AFTERNOON,
JULY IST
The third annual Shirt Waist dance
will be given Saturday afternoon.
July Ist, by the Autumn Leaf club at
Old Colony hall. This club has the
name of conducting the finest dancing
parties that are given in Denver, and
you are all cordially invited to be in
attendance. Dancing from 2 p. m. un
til 7:30 p. m. Fine music.
Jesse Stone, president.
James Colston, treasurer.
Leon Pryor, floor manager.
JOHN LARKINS.
Jolly John Larkins, of Black Patti s
company for three years, will head his
own company next season, under the*
management of the Pikes Amusement
company.. It will be known as Jolly
John Larkins and his Happy Flock in*
Royal Sam.. Miss Jennie Pearl, wife
of .John Larkins, will be leading lady.
THOMAS (PET) HICKS.
Thomas J. Hicks, sometimes re
ferred to as the king of all young sing
ing comedians, is still making a great
name for himself in the South. He is
playing a run of six weeks at the
Grand Central Airdome, Dallas, Tex.
Will play St. Louis the middle of July.
LAURA SMITH.
The clever little singing comedian
and a great favorite at the Savoy the
atre. Memphis. Teun., will close next
week. Will appear at Ollie Demp
sey's theatre, Cincinnati, where she
will play three weeks, and then to
State street, Chicago, for an indefinite
time.
BUDDY GLENN.
The veteran comedian, Buddy
Gienn, opened at the Globe theatre,
Jacksonville, Fla., last week and ev
erybody gives him due credit for be
ing one of the oldest-youngest per
formers in the business. Buddy has
been in the business for 33 years.
JACK JOHNSON.
Has Jack Johnson contributed to
the respectability of the fighting
game? It is a big question. He has
scared it up, that much is certain. He
has upset it, that much is also certain.
In some respects Johnson has con
ducted himself sanely enough; in oth
ers, not so sane. And at that he ap
pears modest enough for a colored
man with the, money he has and the
applause. Either one is sufficient to
turn an ordinary head. And remem
ber, Jack has been abused greatly by
the laws of different cities. And Jack
isn’t so extravagant as people think.
However, when he concluded to go to
London to see the king, he only
bought $3,000 worth of clothes, and
I suppose a man with as much money
as Jack has needs a pretty fair ward
robe, as he is forever in front of the
public.
JOHN RUCKER AND JEFF
DEMOUNT.
The famous old timer, John Rucker
and Jeff DeMount, filled the Savoy
theatre of Baltimore nightly during
their two weeks' stay. Rucker will
come West this season, playing the
Pantages circuit for 20 weeks.
REESE BROS.’ AFRICANDA AT PE
KIN, CHICAGO.
The Reese brothers, Ollie and Ar
thur, the two famous twins, appeared
for the first time since they returned
from Europe, at the Pekin jtheatre,
Chicago, with a big comedy company
of 12 people, under the name of the
Africandas. Some of the cast are
Tom Davis, Jessie Reese, Alonzo Blue,
Eleanor Wilson Houge. Rube John
son, Octavia Beasley and others, Ollie
Reese taking the part as the star com
edian.
THE GRAND THEATRE, CHATTA
NOOGA, TENN.
Another f;ne colored theatre opened
to S. R. O. the first night it opened
and is still hanging out the sign. The
Grand theatre of Chattanooga is said
to be one of the finest colored theatres
in the country, with a seating capac
ity of 1,200. The manager, Mr. J. H.
Williams, is said to be producing the
very best acts that money can buy.
THE WHITMAN SISTERS.
A pair of clever girls, the Whitman
sisters, made a big hit at the Blue
Mouse theatre, Washington, D. C., for
the last two weeks. Next week they
will be at the Minnehaha, assisted by
a troupe of clever singers and danc
ers. •
PEAT &. COOPER.
Ed J. Peat is playing his second
week at the Fairyland theatre, Wash
ington, D. C.. and he has joined forces
with Miss Madeline Cooper, known as
Kinky.
THE COX TRIO.
Just three of us, that’s all, and Cox
is the name. Have just closed a six
teen weeks’ engagement at the Royal
theatre, Memphis, Tenn., with a world
of success. Will open next week at
the Central theatre, Atlanta, Ga.
THE PERVEES.
1 A clever team of entertainers, the
famous Pervees, opened up the Pekin,
Richmond, Va. t last week with their
I singing, dancing, talking and juggling
act and took the house by storm.
I To be sure I am going, ain’t you.
Bill? Where? To the greatest picnic
of the season, July 11, the Masons, at
j Bloomfield park. All the Elks will be
there. Good music, good order and a
large crowd assured.
W. A. Rice, who is known as one of
Denver’s best soda dispensers and
who made himself a great reputation
in the Denver Dry Goods company for
his handling of the sandwiches, is
opening the same line in the Rocky
Mountain Athletic Association. He is
W. A. RICE.
all equipped with new fixtures, a
range and steam table. Delicatessen
goods are his specialty. He means to
• make of this merchants’ lunch some
thing hitherto unknown to Denver.
NEXT SEASON TO BE
GREAT FOR NEGRO ACTORS.
From the different booking agen
cies all over tne country they say
that there was 40 per cent, more Ne
gro acts booked this past season than
ever before in the history of the Ne
gro performers. And they are looking
for a greater percentage this coming
season. In the South alone there
were over 500 vaudeville acts booked
in the colored theaters which have
grown to the large* number of 112 all
told, and what has meant 60 per cent,
increase in the last three Tears* for
the Negro business throughout the
Fast and the South. That's prosper
ity. people.
BASEBALL SUCCESS.
It is the team that collectively can
make the most of opportunities that
will be the successful one in the end.
And opportunity comes to every sin
gle man on a team; in fact every time
»t the bat is an opportunity. So it is
easy to see that every one starts with
an equal chance. If the batter is suc
cessful in grasping the opportunity
he reaches first, but the opportunity is
not completed then by any means. It
is only one quarter done. He faces
three more bases between him and
home plate. So from this it is easy
to see that really it is not a case of
wait for your opportunity and then
grasfr it, but get out and hustle and
make your own opportunity. Go to
Mr. Opportunity if it is permissable
to personify that significant word as a
slogan of each member of a baseball
team, and make up your mind to hus
tle and win. It behooves every indi
vidual on a team to put forth his very
best efforts at all times. This does
not mean eight innings of pepper, life,
vim and dash, and then a relapse into
one of loafing, but nine full rounds of
fight and then some more fight.
There can’t be any let up and expect
to win. One player loafing can effect
the whole team. So my advice to all
ball players is go to it for all that it is
worth and you will surely make good.
