Transcript The best all around, longest, reddest, and fanciest beard winners. struction, electrical work, and production is done entirely by students. This year the first permanent building, made out of corrugated steel, was erected. FRONTIER FIESTA has grown from a three- night show in 1940, seen by 5,000, to its present size of a six-night show, with an attendance of over 100,000 people, and a total gross receipts of almost #100,000 each year. The proceeds of FRONTIER FIESTA, after expenses, are allocated to worthy University projects; for example, Mervin Brisco, Chairman of the 1955 FRONTIER FIESTA, signed over a #106,000 check to the University. This amount represented profits from recent FRONTIER FIESTAS and was used to help pay for the University's new #160,000 swimming pool. Frontier Fiesta is "THE GREATEST COLLEGE SHOW ON EARTH" not only because it is the largest in size, monetary return, and student participation, but also because it is a method of education. In building and producing a show of this nature, students learn to work together ... to meet the business world . . . and to set aside individual differences and combine their efforts toward a common goal. FRONTIER FIESTA is fortunate that the University of Houston has an administration which recognizes the importance of this practical experience as a supplement to the education that comes from books. From this relationship between faculty and students, the students gain a feeling of stature and importance . . . the administration in return receives a feeling of pride. Among the many special events that are a part of FRONTIER FIESTA is the BEARD CONTEST. Male students grow beards for several months, and the student who "raises" the finest crop of whiskers wins a new Ford automobile donated by Earl McMillian, one of Houston's leading Ford Dealers and a wonderful friend of the University of Houston.
