February 27 has been set as the date for the presen tation of Alice in Wonderland. One of Meredith’s more popular traditions, Alice in Wonderland is presented once every college generation by the faculty and ad ministration. Inquiries failed to per suade faculty members to divulge the names of the cast. According to a well-known member of the administration staff, half the fun of seeing Alice in Wonderland is trying to guess who is playing which part. This traditional play, for which the faculty does all the staging and acting, has been seen % Meredith students since 1924 when it was first presented. Mrs. Gertrude Royster, director of physical education, began the tradition and directed the first five performances. Miss Ida Poteat, long-time head of the Art Department, planned the costumes for the first production. The production is presented for the en tertainment of the students and is open to the entire student body. (Taken from the Feb. 13, 1964 issue of The TWIG.)

Educational Testing Service PRINCETON, N.J. - Ap plicants to law schools are advised that delays in delivery of a new computer system have resulted in a backlog of Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) reports to law schools. Law schools have been made aware of the problem through frequent updating on the status of the processing schedule. Although law school admission offices may be somewhat slowed in making their decisions, students can be assured that fairness will be paramount, and no in dividuals will be penalized for late reporting delays incurred by the LSDAS. Because of the backlog, it is estimated that, at the current processing rate, there will be delays for about the next eight weeks. Staff have been greatly expanded and are working long hours to meet these problems. Educational Testing Service (ETS), which administers the LSDAS, regrets any personal inconvenience to candidates. The LSDAS was begun in 1970 at the request of the law school. Its purpose is to summarize information from college transcripts, test scores from the Law School Admission Test and other Former Mayor Isabella Cannon speaks with Ms. Cleta Johnson of Career Planning and Dr. John Holt after her convocation lecture,““Dracula: The Man Behind The Legend.” (Photo by Lorri Whit- temore) biographical information used for evaluation by the law school admission offices.
