She will be on campus during Home Coming October 21 and 22 and will conduct an alumni choir for "The Kirkin O' the Tartans" on Sunday. The displays have original 1946 programs and the student newspaper the Highlander, as well as many photos of the choirs, Landis, and the Lassies and Lads. A contest was also held and a total of about 50 pounds of candy was given away to those students who could guess who the "mystery lady" was in the display cases. (Dorothy Landis Gray)
