As seen here, "The New Universal presents" would refer to the reorganization of the company. Co-founder Carl Laemmle and son Carl Jr. had been pushed out of management positions the year prior, in 1936, for overspending on production to the point that the company couldn't pay its bills and Standard Capital Corp. foreclosed. Under new management, Universal tightened its belt and focused on low-budget oaters like this one.
