Subject: A date in Dayton

Is there a member of the American Dialect Society who would like to represent

the Society at Wright State U, Dayton OH, on Friday October 7 at two o'clock

for the inauguration of Harley E. Flack as president?

If you enjoy hobnobbing with distinguished colleagues from many fields

towards the head of the line (societies are lined up according to age, and we

are relatively old), reaffirming the academic community, getting your name

(and ours) in the official program, etc. - please let me know.

The reward is the deed itself; we don't have a budget to help you with
