Tea will be served from four to four-thirty during which time officers and members will be informally introduced and the work of the organization discussed Then the new president will take her seat and put through the regular orders of the day as dictated by the secretary. We refrain from asking a speech from you at this time because we are counting on one of your inimitable introductions for Friday 21st of which you will hear more tomorrow, but we hope for your presence at this first meeting to signify your acceptance of a nice presidency. again
