RADCLIFFE BEAUTY THWARTS YARDLING'S PUBLICITY STUNT
H. Stuart Kirby '43 of Rye, New York, and Weld Hall concocted the supreme publicity stunt of the year, involving the delightful combination of a "Ship-wreck Kelly" act high up on one of the trees in the Yard with a Radcliffe glamor girl waiting below, but all his well laid plans fell through when the girl demurred.
The photogenic Yardling planned to perch himself far out on the limb of some small tree in the Yard and cast appealing looks at the lady of his choice, Libby Esler '43, who had supposedly refused him a date. The climax for assembled photographers was to be the moment when the Radcliffe miss finally consented, and the lover's unique lament could be ended.
"What's "Romeo" George Lowther got that I ain't got?" complained boomeranged Kirby. "I got ideas."
