Transcript HOMECOMING FEVER STRIKES COUGARLAND As the school year rolls onward. Cougar football goes into high gear. Excitement is in the air, and throughout the campus thoughts turn toward plans for Homecoming. Student organizations place their nominations for Homecoming Queen with the Student Government office, and a preliminary judging is held in the M. D. Anderson Library Auditorium. Five candidates are selected by a panel consisting of three University Alumni and two professional judges. The next few days are filled with campus campaigning, after which the entire student body elects the girl who will be announced as Homecoming Queen at the Homecoming Dance. Student leaders set up meetings to discuss plans for the big weekend, and their main topic of discussion is the float contest. Suggestions for a theme are taken from members of the campus organizations which are interested in participating. Revision of past Homecoming float rules is also discussed. This includes dividing float entries into small and large categories, having house displays instead of floats, and awarding trophies if this alternate plan of house displays is passed. A downtown parade is considered, pending the entrance of a minimum of ten floats. As an added boost to the high spirit already spread throughout the campus, Mayor Lewis Cutrer issues a proclamation decreeing October 30-November 5 as the officially recognized "University of Houston" week in the city of Houston. NEXT ENTRANT, PLEASE, is the call as one of the Homecoming Queen entrants walks past those awaiting their time in front of the judges. PLANNING SESSION between fraternity and sorority crops up during discussion as to the theme of their Homecoming float. PROCLAIMING UH WEEK Mayor Lewis Cutrer signs the document. On hand at city hall is Alumni Association president Walter Rainey, Jr- 118
