Dr. Allen, who is one of the most prominent physicians in Western North
Carolina, has been elected a director in the great Equitable Life Assurance
Society of New York City. This is the first time that this big company hns
honored a North Carlina citizen with election to directorship. Dr. Allen first
came into contact with the members of the official board of this hip cor
poration in a social way, bu. merit und bigness was soon recognized with
the result that .when a vacancy occurred in the board, caused by the dt.tth
of former Governor Glynn, of New York,-he was elected to fill the vacan

On Saturday afternoon, Oct. 3, 192E,
there was a meeting of the Haywood
County Alumnae of North Carolina at
Mrs. Nannie Persons, for the purpose
of commemorating Foundation Day.
The radio program sent out by the
Alumnae secretary was used. The
meeting opened with the singing of
the college song, after which the
greetings and messages from Presi
dent Foust and members of the fac
ulty were read by various merpbers.
After the reading of each message
each one had some pleasant and in
teresting reminiscence to relate. 4t
the close of the program Carolina -.vus
sung in memory of Dr. Mclver.
A delightful social half hour was
enjoyed during which a lovely salad
course was served. The guests were
then invited into the dining room
where a beautiful college birthday
cake, decorated with heliotrope and
pink geraniums graced the center of
the table. The blowing out of the
candles occasioned a great deal of fun.
It was with much reluctance that
the guests parted after the happy
renewal of college associations.
