That 'Math Council Dinner' is in December, but I forgot which night, so I asked around. Alan said that the date was an odd number; Brenda claimed it was greater than 13. Carly declared it was not a perfect square, while Dara swore it was a perfect cube. Finally, Edward told me the date was less than one-fourth his age, which I know to be 68. Yesterday I learned that only one of them had told the truth! What is the date of the dinner?
