We never make demands upon our readers. But—patronizing our advertisers does help us considerably.

The Messrs. Shubert will present at the Winter Garden Monday night the John Murray Anderson revue, “Life Begins at 8:40” with Bert Lahr, Ray Bolger, Luella Gear and Frances Williams.

Scenery is by Albert Johnson. Ira Gershwin and E. Y. Harburg wrote the lyrics, and Harold Arlen the music. The sketches are by David Freedman, H. I. Phillips, Allan Baxter and Henry Clapp Smith. Mr. Anderson has staged and lighted the production. The dances, except those of the Weidman Group, were staged by Bob Alton. Philip Loeb directed the sketches.
