ing on the dance begin planning
decorations and choosing a band,
Rinkel is called in to give advice
on costs of the same operations for
past years and to suggest how
much should be spent this year.
It is the personal contacts he
makes that please him most about
his two jobs, he says. He finds
working with students pleasant,
and spends many long hours meet-
ing with planning committees, act-
ing as financial advisor.
Two-thirds of day is spent in
Rm. 1053 Administration Bldg.,
where he supervises bookkeeping
for all recognized student groups.
He has two bookkeepers working
under him in this office.
Long Hours
But his work as Auditor doesn't
end. at 5 p.m. When %a student
sponsored program charging ad-
mission is held at night, Rinkel
must work overtime, taking care of
the money before it can be de-
posited in the bank.
The heaviest month of work for
Rinkel just ended with the close
of the books for the 1955 fiscal
year. Like the government's book-
keeping system, the University's
runs from July 1 to June 30.
Unlike student organizations
themselves, which function only
during the weeks school is in ses-
sion, bookkeeping must go on, and
Rinkel's job doesn't stop for stu-
dents' holidays.
Publications Advisor
His job as Business Secretary for
the Board in Control of Student
Publications takes up one-third of
his office hours. There he works
as financial advisor for The Daily,
Gargoyle, Ensian ;and Generation
business staffs.
Books for student publications
are not kept with those of other
student organizations because the
Board in Control operates publica-
tions apart from other student
Rinkel's jobs began two years
ago when Dean of Men Walter
Rea, who was then Associate Dean
of Students, and acting as auditor
in addition to his other duties,
was promoted. The job of super-
vising the financial status of stu-
dent organizations became a time
consuming one and Rinkel was
appointed to it.
He had previously been employ-
ed in the Internal Audit Section of
the University.
Golf and Gardening
When Rinkel isn't occupying
himself with the financial prob-
lems of University student groups,
he likes to squeeze in some golf
and gardening. During the winter
months, "when there is time," he
enjoys wood working.
The off-campus hours of the
friendly financial expert are spent
with his wife, who spends her
spare hours doing creative writing,
and lis six-year-old daughter
Rinkel received his bachelors
and masters degrees in business
.administration at the University,
and before his employment with
the University worked in New

concoction, including heavily-spiced lamb cubes, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers-

CRAZY OTTO-Miss Hard tries to convince Otto the Dachshund,
who looks unconvinced, that Sheesh Kabob is, after all, better
