- Five by O. Henry -

Dr. White is in a play! Five by O. Henry will be playing at the 
Greensboro Historical Museum on Saturday, September 17th.  A van will 
leave from the front of the Foust Building at 2:00 p.m., and the first 
ten people to sign up will receive FREE TICKETS.  Dr. White is in the 
play (for at least one minute); her last appearance on stage was when 
she was in the sixth grade and played a peasant.  If you would like to 
go please call Dr. White at x1888, or slip a note under her door (Room 
140) saying that you would like to attend.

All members of Strong College are invited every week to the President’s 
Tea, which takes place Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m. in the Junior Common 
Room.  This informal social hour is the perfect time and place to meet 
some of your neighbors and to make new friends.  Be there!  (That means 
you.)
