The Chemistry Department played host to the first faculty-staff get-together of the new academic year, September 2 in the Doghouse. Alky, an alcohol molecule model that looks very much like a stickfigure dog, presided over the drinks; and Carl Salter, associate professor of chemistry, offered homemade chocolate and vanilla ice cream and strawberry sorbet made with liquid nitrogen as the chilling agent. Here, Carl pours and Eva Leeds, associate professor of economics, stirs the brew, which is mostly fog, boiling over the sides of the bowl and spilling across the table.
