New Cartoon Baby's Name Honors 19th-Century Reformer

By: E&P Staff The comics pages have a new character -- a baby born this Sunday in "Stone Soup."

Today's strip gives the baby's full name: Luci Stone Weinstein. She's the daughter of Joan Stone (who gave birth at home with the help of a midwife) and Wally Weinstein. Lucy Stone (1818-1893) was an American reformer and women's rights activist.

"Stone Soup" is by Jan Eliot of Universal Press Syndicate.
