She told me this story. It happened when she was a high school senior, back home in Des Moines, Iowa. There were the usual round of pregraduation parties, at various girls' homes. There were only two black girls in the graduating class. One of them had a party and invited all her classmates.

Offer made to buy arts centre CALGARY (CP) City council has voted not to buy the Allied Arts Centre, home for Theatre Calgary, after a local radio station offered to buy it. Radio QR Ltd. operator of CHQR. has offered to buy the downtown centre for the asking price of said Ted Soskin. president and manager of the station. Trie Riveredge Foundation, which OMght the centre four years ago to rescue it from financial dilemma, put it on sale last January.
