In many cases they have absolutely forced members of the profession to patronize them. They have hounded many standard acts—recognized trained professionals who produce meritorious nnd finished acta—to such an extent thai they have the greatest difficulty in procuring engagements unless willing to "come across" In cddltion to the usual five per cent, com- mission as stipulated in the contract. From personal experience and observation, and from facta and opinions expressed to me by managers In every section of America, it is plain to see that a Just indignation has been aroused against the unfairness and down- right dishonesty on the part of certain book- ing agents. It is nothing leas than brutal arrogance and injustice. It Is pernicious, grasping, dishonest and humiliating to both managers and performers. Any individual or publication that could advocate such a crooked system is an enemy of all members of the profession, including the managers. It is the manager who has to pay for his ex- perience by accepting the grafting agents bookings, and thereby reducing his box office receipts. .... The above statements arc actual facts and not oplnona or a "sour grapes" cry, as the writer la not In search of engagements. Tub Clippib advertising columns have kept this act busy for twenty-five years. For obvious reasons, which Tub Clipper will readily understand, I cannot give my name for publication.
