"There are three circuits. The Victory circuit presents full-size and full-dress musicals, revues, plays and concerts to all posts and naval stations with theater equipment large enough to accommodate them. The second (Blue Circuit), is made up of 'Tabloid Troupes' who can play anywhere. Small, mobile variety units, they can perform indoors or out, with or without theaters. Camp shows latest pride is the Hospital Circuit, now performing at 80 general hospitals in this country. It carefully selects entertainment for the sick and wounded and in close collaboration with medical officers... From one point of view, it's noteworthy that in the day of indifferent vaudeville, many accordion players, jugglers, magicians, acrobats, comedians and the like have been provided with steady work and the most appreciative audience in the world. But there are professional drawbacks. Riding the hump to China is a long way from Broadway. You don't get Delhi Belly in a Chicago Loop night club. And there have been seven entertainers who never came back."
