Transcript over 1000 students get together to celebrate the official opening of FRONTIER FIESTA. This year the students danced to two bands in the Shamrock Hilton Hotel. At the Kick-Off dance the Sheriff and Belle of FIESTA CITY were announced. The annual date auction, where ten girls and ten boys were sold to the highest bidder, followed the dance. Last year the DATE AUCTION made history, for the highest bid for a girl was $190. Following the auction, the participants and their dates were treated to a banquet and a dance by the FRONTIER FIESTA ASSOCIATION. The annual FIESTA BARBECUE is held several weeks prior to FRONTIER FIESTA for all students and faculty members. The honored guests are the crippled children from Hedgecroft Clinic, Jeff Davis Hospital and the Faith Home, where an honorary mayor was chosen from one of the crippled children. The 1958 honorary mayor was presented with a Western outfit and a pair of "six shooters." The barbecue was made from prize cattle from the recent fat stock show and was do nated through the generosity of cattlemen and businessmen all over Texas. This year we were honored to have Governor PRICE DANIEL sign a charter stating that the State of Texas recognizes FIESTA CITY for one week of each year. On April 21st the gates of FIESTA CITY open to the public; and down the midway on every side, are the myriad of talent competing for a place in the top ten acts and trying to earn for their show the most coveted award of FRONTIER FIESTA— The JOE KOPPEL AWARD, presented to the show voted most understanding. FRONTIER FIESTA has become a living part of the University of Houston and the city of Houston. The size of FIESTA is great in itself, and because of the spirit with which it is built, it is well deserving of its tide, "THE GREATEST COLLEGE SHOW ON EARTH." JOE SUTTLES VICE CHAIRMAN
