Patterson FRONTIER TOWN RULES AGAIN y By Gene Cuny The shot of a pistol, the excitement of the Casino, the music from a roaring camp review, the reward signs being posted, the hissing of the villain at the melodrama, the cursing of Judge Roy Bean—when a young man hears all of these noises combined with many more he can be sure he has followed the advice of Horace Greeley and gone West, yes, gone west of the Pecos to the replica of Frontier City at the University of Houston. Never before ,in the history of the University has such an elaborate project been planned. In fact the project is one of the most unusual student projects of any university. This year the students of the University of Houston present for your entertainment a three-day Frontier Fiesta —a Fiesta full of fun, foolishness and frolic, held on the campus of the University April 24. 25, and 26. The first night, April 24, has been dedicated to the University Alumni. The fatted calf will be killed, barbecued and served by chuck wagon cooks to the exes who have come back home. Mr. T. L. Evans of the Chamber of Commerce will speak immediately afterwards and there will be a faculty burlesque show for our guests and students. After the finale of the burlesque the gates to the midway will swing open to the accompaniment of swing bands and familiar carnival spiels. The second night of the Fiesta will be dedicated to the graduating classes of the Houston High Schools. At 8 p.m. April '25, the most beautiful and most popular girls from each of the nine senior high schools, and their escorts, will be presented before a royal court composed of University students. The reception will carry out the theme of "Gone With the Wind" and will feature beautiful southern belles and handsome southern beaus wearing elaborate period costumes before the reproduction of a famous colonial plantation home. On Saturday night, the last night of the Fiesta, there will really be a hot time in old Frontier Town. The feature attraction will be an old melodrama, "Gold in the Hills" or "The Dead Sister's Secret." The purpose of the Frontier Fiesta is threefold. First, the students wish to pay tribute to the Alumni and extend to them a real old-fashioned homecoming. Secondly, the University wishes to formally receive the Houston High School graduates and their distinguished members. And thirdly, the students hope to raise funds with which to erect a Recreation Building on the campus for the use of the students in their leisure hours. The entire student body will take part in the Frontier Fiesta and will re-create for three days the spirit of the Old West when men were rough and reckless and the women were fearless and frivolous.
