Transcript Fiesta Through the Years (Continued from Page 5) months students worked and planned for the great revival. For the first time, an automobile was donated as first prize in the Beard Growing Contest, and hundreds of prizes were contributed by local citizens to be given for city wide FRONTIER FIESTA promotion. A truly Western town was taking shape on the campus—FRONTIER FIESTA was becoming a big thing, not only on the campus but also in the city. An estimated 25,000 people visited the show between April 24 and 26, 10,000 of these on the last night. Fiesta had grown too big. More space and more nights had to be allotted next year. The year 1948 saw a repeat performance at the same spot with a four night run. More than 30,000 citizens jammed the campus to witness the Fiesta. But further improvements were needed. Space was too crowded, and besides the new Cullen Building was to be erected shortly. For the 1 949 Fiesta a large plot of ground, twice the size of the one used in 1948, was assigned at the northwest of the Science Building. Twice as many shows were being produced as the previous year, and school spirit had hit an all time high. Earl McMillian gave a 1949 Ford to the student with the best whiskers, and 50,000 men, women and children saw FRONTIER FIESTA between April 6 and 9. Five Fiestas have taken place. Now the sixth is here, bigger and better, and planning to beat all previous records in becoming a greater "Greatest College Show on Earth."
