Transcript MIDWAY ATTRACTIONS 1. JUDGE ROY BEAN'S COURT—The Pre-Law Club of the University will show the administration of justice in the good old days when Roy Bean's Saloon was the bar of justice West of the Pecos. Hal Berry is the manager and Bonny Boysen is directing. 2. BEAUTY PARADE OF THE CENTURY—Have you ever seen the bathing costume grandmother and grandfather wore? If not be sure to see Tommy Lancaster's bathing beauties in costumes our forefathers wore when they thought it a crime to reveal their ankles. The Beauty Parade of the Century is under the direction of Dolf Rutherford and Tommy Lancaster. 3. THE LATIN AMERICAN MARKET—The Latin American Institute will exhibit authentic collections of curios, art objects and handwork of our friends south of the border. They will also serve Mexican food and have Mexican dances. It will be an exact replica of the Mexican Market in Mexico City. 4. TAXI DANCE—"For a nickel to a quarter, you can have a college daughter do a dance right slow," or you can jitter-bug to the boogie woogie of the Taxi Dance Band with the most beautiful girls at the University. Jerry Leinweber and Ellison Miles are co- proprietors of the Taxi Dance. 5. THE BUCKAROO CORRAL—Remember the day when your mother ran at the sight of a good old Can-Can? Now, just one generation later, you can see the same ladies' children performing in the Can- Can at the Buckaroo Bar. There will be two floor shows nightly and dining and dancing will be held all evening. 6. PRE-MED OPERATION—Dr. Ketchem and Dr. Cut- tem will give a demonstration operation twice hourly for your entertainment. The doctors will be glad to use any member of the audience for the experiment. 7. STYLE SHOW —University beauties will model clothes from Foley Brothers twice nightly. The style show has been cleverly staged and will prove to be of interest even to the male animals. Virginia Bryant is the manager of the show. 8. TELEVISION TRANSMISSION—Homer Jones will demonstrate the method of transmitting a real television show. The reception of a televised show will also be shown. 9. "EXTRA, EXTRA"—The Cougar, official newspaper of the University, will have a demonstration of an Editor at Work. Customers can write the headlines and have them printed in a newspaper right on the midway. 10. OFF-BEAT—Jack Daly, a future Billy Rose, will present his show entitled Off-Beat. He has secured the services of several professional stars of stage and radio and will have them perform in a streamlined version of the old western midnight rambles. 11. NIGHT CLUB REVIEW OF 1941—The Night Club Review of 1941 will take you on an imaginary tour of the most popular "night spots" in the city of Houston. The show will consist of acts from the better known night clubs of Houston. These shows will be run continuously from 7:00 until 11:00 every night. Berkley Moore and Lou Ann Flannagan are directing the show. 12. CASINO REVIEW—The Casino Review, under the direction of Jack McHenry, will be presented every night of the Fiesta. The show will carry out a Spanish theme and will feature well known singers. Howard Hartman is the Assistant director. NOTE: The fiesta managers wish to thank the advertisers, patrons and students who have helped make this 1941 "Fiesta" a success. [10]
