When Molly Stanton first looked at the 1,000-square-foot Santa Monica home being sold by actress Noel Neill, best known for playing Lois Lane opposite George Reeves in the 1950s TV series “Adventures of Superman,” Stanton knew the house had some termite damage, some structural steel posts that needed to be repaired and a floor plan with just one bedroom. Stanton, however, instantly fell in love with the hideaway, one of the lesser-known works by noted Case Study designer and builder Rodney Walker.

THOSE wonderful photos of Rodney Walker's Case Study House 16 ["Case Study, in Duplicate," June 8] reminded me of my Uncle Saul's house on Woodrow Wilson Drive in Studio City. The last time I saw that house was in the mid-1950s when I was about 7 or 8 years old. Before I read the article, I phoned my uncle and asked him if he knew of Rodney Walker. He proceeded to regale me with stories of his relationship with Walker, which started somewhere around 1949. At that time my uncle, Dr. Saul Birnbaum, was a young dentist recently out of the Marine Corps; not yet wealthy but with plenty of charm and ambition.

CRAIG and Bruce Walker live 20 miles apart but awake each morning in nearly identical new hilltop homes, post-and-beam structures with open floor plans and walls of glass. To them, the twin houses are a homage to their late father, Rodney Walker, and to the first family home he built 60 years ago.

UC Irvine's four-game winning streak came to an end at about 7:45 Saturday night. It wasn't official for another hour and a half, but it was as good as over when New Mexico State's Rodney Walker wrenched the ball from Raimonds Miglinieks and took it for a layup that gave the Aggies a 35-14 lead with more than eight minutes left in the first half. Irvine retired two-time All-American Kevin Magee's number at halftime, but even if Magee had again donned No.
