TWO musical comedies, ons

called an operetta, ami the
other content with merely being
known 'an one of those nice old Win
ter Garden things, will literally hold
out their arms to theatergoers this
week.

some young men arc doing their
utmost to prevent just such a catas

After "Margaret Schiller" and
"The Greatest Nation" with all duo
