Suzanne Troxler: Mountain Day was a flop because a lot of people couldn’t even find where the food was and there was a question about finding rides back. 1 think it would have been fun if we had met as a group to gether first. The band was good Friday night though. It was awk ward after the dorms closed Saturday night because the Stu dent Center was locked and there was no place to go. Marjorie Richmond: 1 prefer three weekends to one large one because it means Salem can offer more social life. If you miss one weekend you don’t feel that your money is completely was ted because there will be. other functions later.

Lynda Casanova: I loved it! I thought it was great! I was so tired after the plays that I had one drink and zonked out! Nan Wilson: I’m glad I went. The band was great Friday night, and it was fun because there weren’t so many people that it was too crowded. I enjoyed Mountain Day because it was so pretty, even if there weren’t many people there. The advan tage to having one large week end is that everyone makes ah attempt to come then. Susan Noble: I really like it. I thought it was the best IRS event I’ve ever gone to. The mu sic was good to dance to. Sarah Huff: I thought the band was good, but the next time I think it should be a dres sy event. So seldom do we dress up that it would have been fun for a change.

Nutcracker Suite School Of Arts To Perform With City Symphony Orchestra by Rosalyn Cobb The seventh annual produc tion of The Nutcracker Suite will be presented at Reynolda Audi torium on the following dates: Friday, December 8, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, December 9, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Sunday, December 10 at 2 p.m. It will be presented by the North Carolina School of the Arts dance department (Robert Lyndgren, director) and the Winston-Salem Symphony (John luele, conductor). The Nutcracker Suite is a fa vorite Christmas ballet set to music by the Russian Composer, Tchaikovsky. The story involves a little girl who receives a nut cracker at a Christmas party given by her parents. The gift is in the shape of a toy soldier. After the party is over and the guests have bade their hosts farewell, the child goes to the living room to find her special toy. She falls asleep and in her dreams, the nutcracker comes to life. It takes the child to magic worlds of de light: to the snow country, where snow flakes dance for her; to the Kingdom of Candy, where a celebration is held in her honor at the Palace of Sweets; and to many other delightful realms of a child’s imagination. These and the other voyages are imagina tively described through the ex citing music, the extraordinary dance performance by the NCSA dancers, and the elaborate stage design which asways accompan ies The Nutcracker Suite.
