Helen Hayes, Mary Tyler Moore and Lauren Bacall will be among the first women inducted into the Players, a New York club for performers and writers, at a 100th anniversary celebration Sunday.

Mark Twain was a charter member of the 1,000-member club, whose rolls have included Laurence Olivier, Gregory Peck, Frank Sinatra, Jack Lemmon and Jose Ferrer, the current president.The Players, anticipating the Supreme Court decision that upheld an anti-discrimination law at non-private clubs around the city, voted in 1987 to admit women. The change was delayed until the club could be renovated.
