To get various celebrities to appear at the Freshman Smoker tonight, has not been easy diplomacy.
First, the Committee members were coldly received by Dennis King, co-star with Vera Zorina. When reminded of Harvard's interest in the stage he replied, "I have heard of a show produced by some sort of a club, the Hasty Pie, I believe."
Second difficulty concerned negotiations with Hollywood's sex personality,' Mae West. Although she expressed a great desire to look the University over, her manager quoted a "special price" for her appearance at the Smoker, three thousand dollars.
