Transcript This Year's Fiesta By Elmer Bertelsen Truly the greatest college show on earth is on display on the University of Houston campus this week. Five acres of Frontier Fiesta city—the largest site in the carnival's five-year history—are packed with 39 concessions that vary in offering from western saloon stage shows to hot dog and ice cream stands. You'll see the presentation of the Silver Moon Saloon, winner of last year's best show award given annually by the Ex-Students Association, the Crow's Nest Saloon and its pretty chorines, the Cavalier Theater with a hellzapoppin' type variety show, Judge Roy Bean's Court in session as Law West of the Pecos rules again, Bella Union's show depicting the oV and new West, Varsity "H" Association show, and many others. To produce an extravaganza of this size has meant careful planning and hard work by students and faculty alike. And like the school's enrollment and expanding campus, the Fiesta has mushroomed since its inception in 1941. This year's Fiesta has been a reason for living for student leaders since early in September. Even before that time, Harrey Scott, general chairman, was carefully selecting a staff of assistants who would make this year's carnival the best yet. What you see and hear during your visit on the campus this week will be evidence that Scott has done a job of which he may be proud. Cigar-smoking "Rick" Hale, sheriff of Fiesta City will be roaming the midway in search of students who are not properly attired for this gay college carnival. He will be assisted by petite Marion Magill, elected Fiesta Belle by students in a campus election recently. They will "jail" students who do not comply with Judge Bean's rulings. A record of 1845 votes were cast in the election for Sheriff and Belle—and the students paid to vote—Fiesta booklets were used as votes. Cigar-smoking "Rick" Hale, sheriff of Fiesta City, will be coeds Shirley Hogan as Calamity Jane; Betty Jo Speight as Annie Oakley; Barbara Smith as Jersey Lilly; Peggy Griffin as Diamond Lil; Ruthmary Anderson as the Lady Known as Lou; and Jackie Enloe as Klondike Kate.
