Transcript Hair foofay, Gone Tomorrow By RALPH POLING As any coed can tell you, this beard-growing business is a ticklish situation- No one thought much about face-moss until about 300 BC when a Roman barber created the scraped-skin fashion which has carried over to our atomic age. Up to that time the boys were content to let the chin-chilla grow as it mighty leaving a strand here and there on the thorns of a briar patch. Scipio Africanus is credited (or blamed) depending on your own sentiment with instituting the daily shave. Rumor has it that his wife influenced him through her allergy to chard on the skin. The nude neck gained real popularity when Louis III ascended the throne of England completely bereft of hirsute facial appendage. (Beardless, that is.) Since that time the nude look and the caracul countenance have split honors in the popularity poll. Even today, to beard or not to beard is controversial. The navy ok's beards as masculine and super-salty while the army considers facial foliage only as a potential vermin habitat. University males neatly side-stepped the issue by baring their epidermis to the Texas sun the greater part of the year and cultivating the beaver during Fiesta time. Mustaches: waxed, handlebar, drooping, tobacco stained, and mandarin. Beards; Van Dyke, mutton chop, rounded, squared, brush, Turkish, and free style. All show up in various lengths and colors when Frontier Fiesta opens its gates. These students with the stubble lend an authentic and nostalgic touch to Fiesta City's fabulous midway. More, they indicate a school spirit not to be out-done by any institution in the country. Hats off, then, to the boys who bore the startled glances of outlanders unfamiliar with Fiesta customs. A cheer for the wives and sweethearts who suffered sandpaper kisses for the cause. Hearty applause for the generous donors of the wonderful prizes. A pat on the back for all those who lent their time and talent in various ways. Together, they have made the 1950 Frontier Fiesta, as always, "THE GREATEST COLLEGE SHOW ON EARTH." Twelve
