"Dear Miss Eversole:
"Frank Bartholomew has just ad
vised me that you are playing the
part of ‘Miss Shea’ in a local pro
duction of ‘What A Life’, and has
asked me to send a photograph
along with any message I may have.
"The only message I can think of
is that the part of Miss Shea prob
ably has more entrances and exits
than that of any character in any
Broadway show in years. In fact
there are so many, you are perfectly
safe in making an entrance on al
most any line and being sure of
arriving right on cue.
“Naturally, I more than appreciate
your interest in putting on the play,
now that everybody is talking about i

A&P Super Markets and A&P Food Stores will continue to give you
real low prices on fine foods every day, just as they have been doing.
The new "ceiling price" regulation will not alter in any way A&P's

to get the best foods the markets afford at our lowest possible prices.
O And here is another important fact to remember. FOOD PRICES WILL

A&P, during the last eight years, has made big reductions in its
operating costs. These savings have been passed along to our cus
tomers, so that today they have 9c more of every food dollar to
spend than they did in 1933.
It is A&P's policy to continue to conduct its business as economically
as possible, thus to give you the utmost for every food dollar you
spend at A&P Stores.

not be too disappointed in the final
outcome. Under separate cover I
am sending a photograph.
