It’s that time again—the big event of the NVC year. And from all
indications. this one will be bigger and better than ever.
This year's NVC-WAC Installation Dinner Dance will be held on A
pril 23 at the Hotel Wilsonian, 47th and University Way. A huge
crowd is anticipated for this affair so may we suggest you make your
reservation by calling either Louise Kashlno. m. 1096. or Tom Tsuta
kawa, CA. 7669. We would appreciate it if you would make your call
before April 19.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer sports editor. Royal Brougham. will
be our main speaker. Royal needs no introduction and as you well
know, he never fails to captivate his audience with his scintillating
talks. NVC feels fortunate in being able to present Royal Brougham.
Also on the program will be the installation of new officers of the
NVC and Auxiliary and presentation of Life Membership certificates
to NVC members_
Dancing will follow with music provided by Emmett Lewis and his
distinctive orchestra. '
According to pledge program chairman, Lefty Ichihara, the paid
up $lOO life members are booming in. And according to the latest fi
gure. the number has increased to 18.,
