The Gold Room in Martha Cook displays some of the elegance that its benefactor William Cook thought would nurture
"cultured American womanhood." Some residents are concerned that they are seen as being too old-fashioned.

'No, the Martha Cook Building was not established to house
prospective wives of law school students who live across
Tappan Street. Sure, William Cook paid for both the dor-
mitory and a good part of the Law Quad back in the early
years of this century. But Martha Cook - named for the
donor's mother - was built in 1915, almost a decade before
construction of the Law Quad began.
In the beginning, William Cook said the building ought to
nurture "the charm and grace and principles of cultured
American womanhood." These days, the notion of "cultured
American womanhood" may seem a bit archaic, but the
charm and grace still flood the all-women's dorm. From the
portrait of Martha Cook above the main fireplace to the
replica of the Venus de Milo in the main corridor, Martha
Cook remains quite impressive.
"MR. COOK'S theory was that if you surround young
women with beautiful things . . . they will become more
ultured," said Rosalie Moore, the building's director.
She said that today's residents are interested in an at-
mosphere condusive to studying, but "they are by no means
grinds." The 153 residents, who range from sophomores to
graduate students, must apply to get into the dorm. There
are no requirements for admission other than waiting until
there's an open space.

could work. 9:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. on
various evenings," he said, but added
the volunteers officially are on duty x
only about half that time.
Jonathan Tice, a volunteer at St. An-
drew's said he thought a shelter in the
church's basement was the best
solution for the city's homeless.
"In a house there are nooks and
crannies where people hide so it's very
difficult to supervise the residents.
If the plans for the.city's permanent
shelter fall through, the city is con-
sidering using a voucher system but
Tice doesn't think that would work.
"When the voucher system was drop-
ped during the summer and the
homeless were moved into the
I basement, the numbers per night. ...
diminished," he said. "The hotels
seemed to be such a nice place to stay,
so the chronic and temporary homeless
were not motivated to look for jobs."

As a private dorm, the University's housing office has no
authority over it; instead, Martha Cook is run by a three-
member board of governors, one of whom traditionally is a
member of the Cook family.
TO THE RESIDENTS, there are far more important dif-
ferences than dorm governance. Senior Hana Schneider went
right to the crux of the matter: '"No men." She also said it's a
lot more quiet in her dorm.
"It's more homey" was the phrase used most often by the
women in describing Martha Cook. In addition to the social
atmosphere, the food is far better than standard quaddie
burgers, the residents said.
Martha Cook exudes "a little bit of a sorority atmostphere,"
said Melissa Balogh, an Inteflex student. But residents say
the dorm differs from the sorority in that its residents are not
selected by the other women.
"There's a pretty wide cross-section of girls," said Elaine
Constand, an LSA senior who is the dorm's president.
"In a sense, it's a cross between a sorority and a dorm,"
said Moore, the building's director.
Said Christine Wanteck, another house officer: I think of
this as my house. It gives you a feeling of coming home, but
not of squelching you."
