The annual card party which is
given by the American Association

the League building will be held
Thursday, Feb. 14, according to an
announcement from the office of
the Alumnae council.

reservations will be taken.
Prior. to this time the money
raised~ from the card party has

! but this year the money will be
used for a special gift to be placed
in the Alumnae Room of the League
building; which will be known as
the Ann Arbor room.
It is hoped that there will be a
larger number playing this year
than ever before in order to do
something of a very special nature
in a gift for this room. This is
following the precedent established,
by other groups who are making
special dedication gifts to the
League building this year. A list
of the hostesses for the occasion
will be published later.
