THE SHOW WORLD
TWO HUNDRED HOUSES
FOR GUS SUN CIRCUIT
National Vaudeville Managers' Association Expands Its Time
and Affords Inexpensive Jumps
SPRINGFIELD, 0., July 15.-Gus
Sun is highly pleased with the outlook
for next season and great prepara-
tions are being made by the Gus Sun
Booking Exchange Company, which
books for the National Vaudeville
Managers' Association, affiliated with
the Western and United offices, and
which is now operating branches at
Pittsburg andr Cincinnati, to supply
the two hundred odd houses which
willhe included in the "SunTime."
All actswill be routed commencing
the first two weeks in August, all
though the booking will continue well
up into September.  Acts will, by
reasonof the number oftheaters, be
kept busy anlentire season, provided
they give satisfaction, and a unique
system of personal supervision  of
every act opening on the time has
beenarrangedso that alleunsatisfac-
tory acts will be eliminated from the
booking.
Gus Siun said: "The general out-
look for next season is most promis-
ing. On our own time there will be
many added benefits, through the in-
crease in the circuit. For instance,
the railroad jumps will all be short
and the larger houses of the circuit
are well prepared to handle any
vaudeville act, no matter how preten-
tious. We have no complaint to make
regarding the business of the past
season. The season was much longer
than its predecessor and very few
houses closed until actually compelled
to by the warm weather. I will an-
nounce the routing of our acts by full
page advertisements in all the leading
amusement weeklies and no contracts
will be issued until the time stated. I
advise acts not to make contracts for
next season until they read the sur-
prise we will have to make in our an-
nouncement in your paper."

in the Shubert column next season,

not build a new house here this year
as they had intended.-BARNES.

ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July 14.
-Business has diminished but little
here following the crowds which
broke the records of the past eight
years from the third to the fifth.

ticularly attractive and is putting on
fine vaudeville bills. For the current
week   the  following  are  booked:
Mamie Fleming, Kaiser's Dogs and
Behrs, Jules Harron, Elliott, Delair
and Elliott, Phil Bennett, Emmett
Welch, assisted by Baby Carlin;
Gladys Arnold and Edwin Felix,

Spokane Fair Preparation.
SPOKANE, Wash., July 14.-Prep-
arations are well under way for the
Spokane Interstate Fair, which is to
be held September 20-25. Manager
Robert H. Cosgrove, who recently re-
turned from the coast, where he went
to secure attractions, is highly grati-
fied at the outlook. He believes that
this city is fortunate in its date this
year as it precedes the fairs to be held
at Helena and Salt Lake, and again,
attractions that would not come west
for a single week will come for the
three. The cattle show will be one
of the features of the fair.-SYDNEY
