Transcript College Life NEW ORLEANS POLICE SITE COUGAR MASCOT Texas' State Commission on Higher Education recommends on October 10 that UH be made a fully state-supported institution. Student Government-sponsored elections bring a mass of posters, banners and campaigners to the UH campus. Vote seekers find Cougar Den a haven for prospective supporters. After several days of campaigning, all the discarded handbills make the front of the Den look as though the litterbug has been extremely busy. UH students honor President Clanton Williams, who is leaving after five years, at the October 14 pep rally. The president leads students in his "Cou-gah" yell during the rally, while wearing a cap given him by the cheerleaders. Also at the rally Student Government presents a portrait of the president to his family and one to M. D. Anderson Library. Oklahoma State University invades Cou- garland October 15 for a football game which sees the Big Red on top, 12-7. UH Drama Department presents chairman David Larson's original play, "Very Love," October 20-22. On October 22 the Cougars journey to Alabama for a game with the University of Alabama. On the return trip Shasta's trailer is involved in an automobile accident near New Orleans. Shasta escapes injury, but the New Orleans police tow her trailer into town where she spends the night in front of the police station, causing much commotion from passersby. General A. D. Bruce entertains student leaders at a garden reception on October 23. Journalists from the Houston area gather on campus October 28 for Journalism Assembly. In a one-sided game in which the third string played most of the second half, the Cougars trampled North Texas State 41- 16 on October 29. SHASTA II joins a new group of friends. Dick Lassetter, Cougar Guard member, holds Shasta II next to a picture of the older Shasta. There is a good future ahead if the newcomer is anything like her predecessor who travels, eats, sleeps and is treated like a queen by the Cougar Guard. AUDITORIUM PEP RALLIES are a common sight during football season. At some rallies the players or coaches will give a few words of encouragement. At others, the band and the cheerleaders carry the entire session. Cheering, clapping and yelling, everyone leaved the rally ready for victory. 117
