TFoH,Ch51 - Two very different letters from Elaida and Alviarin make Rand think that there is a rift in the White Tower. The White Tower certainly has spies in Cairhien for news of his presence to have gotten back so fast.
KoD,Ch20 � Few girls of Malkieri heritage go to the White Tower because of the belief that the White Tower failed Malkier in its time of need.
KoD,Ch24 � The novice dining hall is on the lowest floor of the White Tower next to the main kitchen. The second dining hall a floor above has been closed for centuries and novices have not had to each in shifts since before the Trolloc Wars. Dining halls for Accepted and Aes Sedai are on other sides of the kitchen.
