UC Santa Cruz, College V
Who: Barbara Wagner, Donald Friedburg, John Ordonez, Sim Adams, Margaret Tucker, others What: Indoor house painting in our dorm hall, music, relaxing Where: University of California, Santa Cruz; College V (now Porter College), Dorm B, 4th Floor When: September 1973 Why: Reminiscing
Back in those days, the dorms were not locked. Anyone could walk in. However, the
4th floor of Dorm B was designated the Quiet Hall, where supposedly the
residents were dedicated to quiet study with a minimum of partying and
unnecessary noise. To keep out the riffraff, the doors at the two ends of the hallway were locked,
and an intercom system was installed so that visitors could ring their
friends and hall and get "buzzed in." This did nothing about the riffraff residing in the hall.
In this sheet, we are painting the hallway light blue, with white trim around the
doors. Sim Adams celebrates his 19th birthday with the help of his
friends Don Friedburg and Serge Smirnoff. Margaret Tucker also
celebrates a birthday with a cake. Ellen Slavitz and a friend play a duet on the balcony.
