LAMPOON ENTERTAINS 90 AT ANNUAL DINNER
Sumner, Retiring Ibis, Is Toastmaster--Entertainers From Keith's to Vie With Speakers for Applause
The Lampoon will entertain 90 past and present editors at its annual dinner tonight at 7 o'clock in the Lampoon Building. President Lowell will be one of the speakers and James Montgomery Flagg, one of Lampy's honorary editors and perennial guest, will also speak.
Last year Mr. Flagg came into the limelight with a particularly fine collection of caricature portraits of the speakers at the dinner, President Lowell, Professor Kirsopp Lake and J. T. Wheelwright falling victim to his facile pen. Mr. Flagg, however, did not forget himself, and published a brilliant sketch of himself, suitcase in hand, rushing for the Lampoon dinner. John T. Wheelwright '76, noted lawyer and trustee of the Lampoon, and Neal O'Hara '15, columnist of the Boston Traveler, are other speakers tonight, R. E. Summer '25, retiring Ibis, will be toastmaster.
Among the other celebrities slated to attend are J. Harleston Parker '93, former President of the Lampoon; Morton Stimson '82, who was one of the resuscitators of the Lampoon after its year's lapse following its foundation in 1876; Louis Silvers, coach of "Laugh It Off," the forthcoming Hasty Pudding Club show; Matthew Luce '91, Regent of the University; J. W. D. Seymour '17; Thomas W. Slocun '90, former president of the Harvard Club of New York; Roger L. Scaife '97; and J. T. Coolidge '79.
Entertainment for the diners will be furnished by a delegation of Keith's negro musicians, who will render piano and vocal selections.
