Henry's sentimental short story "The Gift of the Magi." The simple tale of the poverty- ridden young husband and wife who sold their two dearest possessions for money to buy Christmas presents for each other probably will be remembered as long as the name of O. Henry. The story is a short one, about 2,200 words. And U has a Christmas glow that shines through even when it's read in mid-summer. It's the tale of a young woman with beautiful hair who dearly desired a set of tortoise - shelled, Jewel-rlnuned combs to adorn ber hair. Her busband's proudest possession was a gold watch that had been bis father's and Us grandfather's. In the spirit of,sacrifice — the real spirit of Christmas giving— she cut off her hair and sold it. With the cash obtained she bought a beautiful watch chain for ber No Revue Profits to Doubting Thomas NEW YORK Iff) — Broadway's unhappiest angel is the man who owned a two per cent interest in "La Plume de Ma Tante." A few days before the Paris revue opened, he expressd misgivings about its prospects — so Joseph Kipness, one of the producers, bought him out. The show opened to seven unanimous critical raves — and appears to be on the way to a banner boxoffice record.

Jim. He, not knowing of her sacrifice, sold his watch to buy the combs for her hair. Like most 0. Henry stories, "The Gift of the Magi" delivers its punch at the ending when Delia, the wife, discovers Jim has no watch to hang from the beautiful chain. The beloved Christmas story was written for the magazine section of the Sunday World, the Sunday edition of the famous old New York Evening World. In 1906 it was published in the collection of O. Henry short stories titled "The Four Million." In its various forms, "T h e Gift of the Magi" has been read by millions throughout the world. But, Dec. 9, In one hour, It will be "read" by more than 35,000,000 Americans most of whom will be already embarked on Christmas shopping sprees. Maybe it will remind them of the true "giving" spirit that O. Henry tried to epitomize in his •tory. , The "mass reading" of "The Gift of the Magi," Tuesday, involves the telecast of a musical version of the tender Christmas tale. The CBS-TV network will present a one-hour production with Sally Ann Howes, star of Broadway's "My Fair Lady," and Gordon MacRae respectively playing the devoted Delia and Jim. Music and lyrics will be by Miss Howes' husband, Richard Adler, who composed the music for "Pajaraa Game" and "Damn Yankees." Ironically — and irony was an O. Henry hallmark — the writer died penniless in 1910 at N e w York's Polyclinic Hospital on 34th Street not far from the present location of the CBS studio from which his story will be telecast at a cost of about $500,000 to the sponsor.
