Transcript zations combine and build a complete Fiesta City each year ... all construction, electrical work, and production being done by students. Each year, after FRONTIER FIESTA, Fiesta City is leveled to the ground so that the next year's FRONTIER FIESTA will be original and inspire the students to present a better show than ever before! FRONTIER FIESTA is "The Greatest College Show on Earth," not only because it is the largest in size, monetary return, and student participation, but also because it is a method of education. In building and producing a show of this nature, students learn to work together ... to meet the business world ... and to set aside individual differences and combine their efforts toward a common goal. FRONTIER FIESTA is fortunate that the University of Houston has an administration which recognizes the importance of this practical experience as a supplement to the education that comes from books. From this relationship between faculty and students, the students gain a feeling of stature and importance ... the administration in return receives a feeling of pride. Among the many special events that are a part of FRONTIER FIESTA is the BEARD CONTEST. The male students grow beards for several months, and the student who "raises" the finest crop of whiskers wins a new Ford automobile donated by Earl McMillian, one of Houston's leading Ford dealers. The annual FIESTA BARBECUE is held several weeks prior to FRONTIER FIESTA for all students and faculty members, and about one hundred crippled children of the Harris County Society for Crippled Children are the special guests of FRONTIER FIESTA at this affair. To truly re-live the days of the Old West, a band of bearded OUTLAWS held a mock bank robbery in El Campo and then rode on their OUTLAW RIDE to their hideaway near Fiesta City. The ANNIE OAKLEY CONTEST gives all coed markswomen an opportunity to prove their shooting skill. The finals of this contest are held every evening during the Pageant in Fiesta City. Among the many honors that have been bestowed upon FRONTIER FIESTA is the Official Fiesta City Charter given to FRONTIER FIESTA in April of 1952 by the Governor of the State of Texas, Allan Shivers. This Charter, branded on tanned leather, makes Fiesta City an official township of the State of Texas. FRONTIER FIESTA has become a living part of the University of Houston and the City of Houston ... it is well-deserving of its title . . . "THE GREATEST COLLEGE SHOW ON EARTH!" BOB GELLES
