Transcript College Life SOME STEEL BANDS and a few pairs of pliers form the frame of the Chi Omega-Sigma Chi float for 1960 Homecoming. FLOATS, THEME POSE PROBLEM What to do? What to do about a theme for Homecoming floats is the question of the day. Faculty advisors, student leaders and organization representatives meet to decide on a theme, but there is much disagreement among those at the meeting. Some students prefer having no specific theme. They favor instead each organization choosing whatever it wishes. Others suggest various themes, and the group finally decides upon song and book titles as the 1960 theme. BUSILY WORKING with papier mache is Phi Mu Pat Coffman. Phi Mu worked with the Diesel Club to build this float. With a planned theme in mind, student organizations put their noses to the old grindstone and get to work on their floats. Each group canvasses the area in search of any empty warehouse, barn, garage— anything that might be suitable for a storage and work area while their float is under construction. When the organization has begged, borrowed, bought (or stolen) the necessary materials and equipment, the actual work begins. For about two weeks members spend every available moment working on decorations—usually fashioning crepe paper flowers or stuffing paper napkins into chicken wire. Time becomes the major element, and all groups work feverishly to complete their floats before the judges arrive. DEMONSTRATING the technique of stuffing chicken wire is Delta Gamma Gerry Friedman. Delta Sigma Phi's Clay Harrison, left; Ellsworth Stewart and Lynn DeGeorge watch with interest. LAST-MINUTE DETAILS will improve a float's appearance. That's why these members of the B.S.U. add last-minute touches. 123
