Single Faculty Members Show Ingenuity

TIME OUT FOR MORNING COFFEE COMPACT LIVING FOR ODETTE GOLDEN

LIVING for the most part on a
small scale, single teaching fel-
lows and instructors on the Univer-
sity faculty exhibit ingenuity in
their ability to- convert their living
quarters into living room, kitchen,
bedroom and study.
Drapes, bamboo screens, imag-
inary efforts and walls occasional-
ly, are used to execute the neces-
sary divisions. No matter how
small the apartment, record col-
lections and large libraries are in
evidence. The inhabitants, howev-
er, busy with classes and theses
do not find much time for outside
activities.
Don Krummel, an instructor in
music literature, who reads schol-
arly books (on subjects other than
music) and works on his disserta-
tion in spare time commented--
"even if it's not relaxing-it's a
change."
Occasionally playing piano duets
provides real relaxation to the Uni-
versity graduate who has also done
much work in library science.
Krummel describes himself as
"half musician and half librarian.
More than one wall in Krummel's
two room apartment is devoted to
his overflowing music library.
LIVING IN a casually kept, four
room apartment three miles
from campus in what he calls "an
unlimited noise district," J. Philip
Benkard, a teaching fellow in the
mathematics department, spends
most of his spare time building
electronic equipment and listening
to records which include "classi-
cal through classical."
As for Benkard's culinary tal-
ents, his roommate commented,
"spaghetti with meat sauce is his
specialty. It takes all afternoon to
prepare and all the dishes are dir-
tied, but it's worth it."
Bombay chicken currey is the
favorite dish of Ruth VandeKieft,
a teaching fellow in the English
department. However anything
that's "quick, easy and cheap" to
prepare is all right with her.
"In fact, I've acquired the art
of turning out a hamburger in a
hundred different ways," she com-
mented as she prepared a chicken
dinner in her modern and compact
kitchen.
Recently returned from Oxford
University where she spent a year
studying English literature, Miss
VandeKieft spends her spare time
reading (modern novels to 14th
Century mystical works) and lis-
tening to classical music.

In Close Quarters
AN AVID worker of crossword
puzzles, George Babcock, a
teaching fellow in the zoology de-
partment, shares a small and well-
packed one-room apartment, which
includes bedroom, study and kitch-
en.
All types of furniture ranging
from a modern table to orange
crate are used in the Babcock in-
stitution.
A smoker of cigars, pipes andx
cigarettes, Babcock explained, "ci-
gars are often too expensive and
pipes are too much trouble to
bother with when I'm not home."
Living in a tiny one-room apart-
ment dominated by bed and desk,
Odette Golden, a teaching fellow
in the French department, finds
room for an electric coffeepot and
a few prized specimens from her
rock collection.
One of the more unusual stones
in her collection which she began
at the age of seven and "takes up
shelves at home," is a lapis lazuli
she picked up in Leningrad, when
she spent a few days there in 1938.
Proficient in both French and
Spanish, the red-headed New York-
er finds the music of French im-
pressionists and Gershwin "lovely WITH DICTIONARY AT HAND, GEORGE BABCOCK ATTACKS
for relaxing." A CROSSWORD PUZZLE
