Fred Stone, the well known comedian who is now acting at the Colonial Theatre in "Stepping Stones" will be the guest of the Union at a luncheon to be given in the Living Room on Thursday, November 13. Mr. Stone will speak briefly following the luncheon. Fred Stone has been connected with the stage for 40 years, appearing in various roles during that time, but made his greatest success as a comedian. In "Stepping Stones" he plays the leading masculine part, and his daughter, Miss Dorothy Stone, carries the chief feminine role.
Unfortunately, Miss Stone has found it impossible to attend. When called at his hotel last night Mr. Stone first said that he would "talk it over with her", but then he remembered that "she wasn't coming".
The first luncheon of this sort, given over a week ago to Mr. Cyril Maude, the popular English actor, was so successful that the Union is continuing the series by inviting Mr. Stone. This time the luncheon will be served in the Living Room instead of the Faculty Room, in order to give a larger number of men an opportunity to attend. The meeting will be open only to members and attendance will be limited strictly to 200.
