at the New Whitney theater, Wednes-

Though operas in no small number
have flocked from Vienna to win fame
through. America's partiality for the
beauties of Viennese music, none of

George Bernard Shaw in many a situa-
tion of sparkling and vigorous comedy,
in his satiric romance, "Arms and the
Man." "My Hero," "The Letter Song,"
"That Will be Lovely" and a score of
others have endeared themselves to
hundreds of thousands in every part
of the land.
