ze D en of alwootl all Walwood Hall, the oldest dormitory on campus, acclaims the 1956-1957 school year as one of its most active. Named after former President Dwight Waldo and Leslie H. Wood, Walwood is the traditional home of many of Western's athletes. The one-hundred-twenty men of Walwood participated in many campus activities during the past year. The dorm's Homecoming display was one of the most colorful on cam pus, featuring the dramatic masks of tragedy and comedy in the respective colors of victorious Western and Toledo University. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Gabel, Pete and Sue Walwood's Council as shown are :sq row 1-jim Stevens, Bob Molesky, Bob Tubbs, Dick Conrad, Robert Sodderman. Row 2-Phil Horst, Pat Dawson, jim Smith, Grant Becker, Lew Chapin, Robert john- son. Row 3-Bob Vozel, Richard Fisher, Ron Beemer. The dorm's Spring Formal Dance, one of the most successful in recent years, was held in the dining room. Later on, Walwood united forces with Spindler Hall for an RHA Mixer in the Spring. Exchange dinners also were held with the Spindler women. The second semester saw Walwood inaugurate the college's First intra-dorm weekly news and events bulletin. Participation in World Affairs Week gave the men an opportunity to serve as host to Mr. Joseph Namata of Tanganyika. Sports occupied much of the spare time of Wal- wood Men, entering football, basketball and bowling teams in the college's intramural pro- gram. They held, in addition, their own table tennis and golf tournaments. Walwood truly was a home away from home for the men with the kind attention of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Gabel, dorm directors. 1

This Dormitory was built in 1939 and over 200 men call it home each year. Vander- cook hall differs from the other male residence halls in that it has no cafeteria facilitiesg a snack bar serves the in-between snack needs 7 , instead. if N N The memorable evening get-togethers and dormitory smokers are just as much a part of Vandercook's social life as is its closed formal dance, "Teepee Tango." This year the men of Vandercook went out and captured hrst place in the Home- coming house displays with their version of "Kismet" This is proof again that the men of Vandercook stick together with their cooperative spirit and attitude.
