Transcript Fiesta In Titty By SEYM CARSON Like Jack and the Bean Stalk, Frontier Fiesta springs forth each year from a handful of seeds—the Fiesta staff—into a vine that engulfs every student on the campus; and the long climb to the top, or opening night, with the first look at the giant that is "The Greatest College Show on Earth" is nothing short of remarkable. For 1950 Fiesta did not start a few weeks before opening nhht, nor did it have its beginning in 1949. This Fiesta was born in 1948 when Harrey Scott, '49 chairman, appointed the present chairman Dave Halphen to be his right-hand man. Scott produced the greatest Fiesta in its history and Halphen was determined to make this Fiesta greater than ever. The first thing Halphen did was to increase the number of performances from four nights to five. Then the students drew up plans for more shows utilizing every inch of space on the midway, until even this five acre site— used for the first time in 1949—seemed inadequate. With the problem before him, Halphen went to work. The fever caught on. Construction records were shattered with each show ahead of schedule by weeks. The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society, giving their first show in the Fiesta, set the pace by finishing Boot Heel, in the center of the midway, months ahead of schedule. Other clubs inspired by this progress completed their shows in rapid succession. Earl McMillian, "Houston's Friendly Ford Dealer," again helped launch the Beard Growing contest with his donation, the second in two years, of a new Ford to be awarded to the man who grows the best beard this year. Many store owners in Houston also donated prizes for the Fiesta's many contests. This year's prize list reads like the jackpot on many famous quiz programs. But like Jack, who climbed the bean stalk to steal the giant's sacks of gold, the Fiesta also has an objective. Every penny made this year, and no one working on the Fiesta is paid, will be used to build an ultra-modern swimming pool. Two
