Transcript lovember BONFIRE KICKS OFF HOMECOMING FEATURE ATTRACTION during Homecoming was the lighting of the bonfii The University of Houston's fifteenth Homecoming reunion is drawing near. Again this year, as in all years since the first Homecoming game was celebrated in 1946. the weekend's events are kicked off with the tradkional pep rally and bonfire on the Cougar campus. Student volunteers go without sleep to complete a stable framework, while coeds lend a hand by bringing food, hot coffee and moral support. Finally, the huge structure is finished, but it can't be left unguarded. Already weary students keep watch over their creation until the time comes for the bonfire to burn. As day turns into night, students and cheerleaders gather around the unlit bonfire. The Homecoming Queen candidates are introduced, then torches are thrown to start the fire, and the pep rally begins. The smoke and flames from the bonfire reach high up into the high, and the sounds of cheering Cougars echo far into the night. At last the fire flickers and dies, but the Cougar spirit lives on. HIGHER AND HIGHER climbs A.P.O. Dick Las- setter as he secures boards to serve as a skeleton for the bonfire. 120
