In January 1935, Fonda's name is attached to a group calling itself the "Stage Associates", and claiming to be the current incarnation of the old University Players.  The article in the New York Times also mentions that they "came to New York as the Theatre Unit" and were associated with Arthur Beckhard in the production of ''Carry Nation''.  "Offices have been opened in the St James Theatre" ([http://scplweb.santacruzpl.org:2249/pqdweb?index=44&did=93664484&SrchMode=1&sid=2&Fmt=10&VInst=PROD&VType=PQD&RQT=309&VName=HNP&TS=1218768438&clientId=54310 ''New York Times'', 8 Jan 1935, pg 27).

[[Lucille Ball]]'s biographer Warren G. Harris in his book ''Lucy & Desi'' relates a story of how Lucy dated Henry Fonda for one date, double-dating with Ginger Rogers and Jimmy Stewart.  He states that Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart were then sharing a house in Brentwood and that the double-date was in-part to dispel any potential gossip that they might be gay lovers.  However Warren seems to place this reported double-date in 1937/8 which is not possible.  It can only have taken place in 1935 or the early part of 1936.
