Death Takes
'U' Scientist '
Professor Emeritus Peter Okkel-
berg, _79, died Tuesday night at
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. A
zoologist, he served for 40 years
on the University faculty prior to
his retirement in February, 1951.
Professor Okkelberg came to the
University as a zoology instructor
in 1912. He became a full profes-
sor in 1923 and then held several
administrative posts in the Horace
H. Backham School of Graduate
Studies, serving as associate
dean from 1947 to 1951.
A native of Minnesota, Dr. Ok-
kelberg was a-fellow member of
the American Association for the
Advancement of Science, the
American Society of Zoology, the
American Society of Mammalog-
ists, Sigma Xi, Phi Kappa Phi,
and others.
A 'memorial service was con-
ducted at 4 p.m. Saturday in the
First Presbyterian Church. Me-

and if it is successful, other units
may be converted. To undergrad-
uate women it represents an op-
portunity for apartment living. It
will elect a council and officers,
however, to coordinate house acti-
vities and represent the house in
campus organizations.
The apartments have been re-
modeled, new Westinghouse re-
frigerators installed, and new
kitchen utensils purchased. "Un-
packing all the new stainless steel
kitchenware was like being the
bride at a bridal shower," one resi-
dent exclaimed.
The Cambridge Hall planning
committee, consisting of both stu-
dents and house directors, has
made every effort to make the
cost, facilities, and governmental
organization of this unit appealing
to Undergrad women.
If the unit is successful, it may
open up another alternative to liv-
ing in dorms, sororities or co-
operatives. It is an attempt to
provide the advantages of "having
a place of one's own"-within the
University system.
