The final tryout as features editors invite readers to decide whether a strip should replace ‘For Better or For Worse’ is announced today in Calendar. Here’s the note:

To Our Readers

‘Stone Soup’ joins the Calendar section today for five weeks. This new comic strip is one of four that we are asking readers to sample as a possible replacement for “For Better or for Worse,” which is now in reruns. ‘Stone Soup,’ by Jan Eliot, will continue until Feb. 22. Then we’ll make a selection. Please email your comments to comics (at) and include your name and city.

Back in August, a post about ‘For Better or For Worse’ started it all. Earlier posts on this journal also introduced Luann, Between Friends, and Home and Away.
