Transcript Can-Can Line. honorary mayor was chosen from one of the crippled children. The 1956 honorary mayor was presented with a western outfit and a pair of "six shooters". The meat for the barbecue was prize cattle from the recent fat stock show and was donated through the generosity of cattlemen and businessmen all over Texas. The Annie Oakley contest gives all marks- women an opportunity to test their shooting skill. The finals of this contest are held every evening during the pageant in FIESTA CITY. Prizes are donated by Houston businessmen. To truly re-live the old wild west days, a band of bearded outlaws ran a mock raid on FIESTA CITY last week, but with the theory that good guys always win, they didn't stand a chance; they were given a quiet and honest trial and then lynched. This year, for the first time, a RODEO will be held during FIESTA WEEK. It will be at 2:00 in the afternoon of the 20th and 21st of April on the University campus. It will include all major rodeo events. This promises to be a thrilling and colorful program. FRONTIER FIESTA has become a living part of the University of Houston and the city of Houston. The size of FIESTA is great in itself, and because of the spirit with which it is built, it is well deserving of its title, "THE GREATEST COLLEGE SHOW ON EARTH". DON COMO. 11
