Transcript Fiestas of Yesteryear By Jack Valenti Out of the dreams of students, up from the hopes of a growing school has been fashioned one of the truly fabulous collegiate enterprises of this generation, the FRONTIER FIESTA. That it confronts Houston with spirited entertainment is undeniable. That it displays student democracy at its finest is inescapable. But it is more than that. Listen. In 1940, the University of Houston was a fledging among colleges. Brash, enthusiastic Cougar students were searching, unbeknowest even to them, for something to span the years and encircle the future. Out of that searching came the FIESTA. The FIESTA was not born of any one mind or spirit. Rather it was co- mingling of many energies and many dreams. A roll call of those students who gave life to this dream would be a citing of men, some whose names would be unknown to many students on the campus today, and others who, even now, would merit considerable fame. Yet these students deserve to be remembered. Johnny Goyen, Joe Potter, Henry Taub, John Taub, Norma Jean Schwecke, Gene Cuny, Jerry Leinweber, Grace Keller, Dick Schill and John Sargent, Joe Koppel, and Ray Campbell. Remember the last three named? Perhaps you don't and if you don't you shall be forever denied the rich privilege of knowing them. Lieutenant Sargent, USN, Ensign Koppel, and Captain Campbell were billed in the late war. From these all-time Cougar great, the idea took root and spread. In the autumn of 1940, a scant few months after the opening of the new campus, the FIRST Frontier Fiesta was born. Girls, who today are mothers, boys, who now are rising Houston business and professional men all took hold of hammers and saws. They worked Saturdays, Sundays and nights with a curious inexhaustible energy. Where Page Eight FIESTA '49
