Why HARPERS Magazine

Has Gained Over 40,000 New Readers

The new Harpers Magazine's astonishing increase in circulation of 65% since September is due to nothing more or less than the material it publishes. Not only does it offer you brilliant and authoritative writing, but subjects and points of view about which intelligent readers naturally feel strongly. A man said the other day, “ It seems to me I never go out to dinner or drop in at the club that I don't run into a discussion about something in Harpers." And why not ! People aren't going to take Dr. Fosdick calmly—nor“ Thunder on the Left;" and from all over the country, echoes still come from tremendous arguments over Ex-President Hadley's “ Law Making and Law Enforcement;" Bruce Blivin's “Great Coolidge Mystery;" Dr. Joseph Collins' “Childish Americans.”
