Transcript College Life "HI EXES,y/ proclaims the prize-winning float of Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Theta Kappa. FLOAT JUDGING takes place in front of the Phi Mu-Diesel Club display. Serving as judges are University of Cincinnati alumni. FLOATS, FOOTBALL TOP HOMECOMING ACTIVITIES All work is over now. No more sawing lumber, cutting chicken wire, or making crepe paper flowers . . . On the day before the Homecoming game, the seven competing floats are put on display by the reflection pool, where they are judged by alumni of the University of Cincinnati. The next morning they are moved, with the help of a police escort, to Rice Stadium. During the half-time ceremonies the winning floats are announced. Phi Kappa Theta and Zeta Tau Alpha take first place with their rendition of "Memories." The float depicts an old-fashioned, crank victrola that plays recorded music. Second place goes to "Home on the Range," constructed by Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Alpha Chi Omega. However, one unfortunate incident mars the float competition. About 2 a.m. on the day of the Homecoming game, the Chi Omega-Sigma Chi float mysteriously catches fire. Flames destroy all the float except its frame before campus police can extinguish the blaze. This marks the second time fire has threatened Homecoming. Pranksters set fire to the partially-constructed bonfire a week before it is scheduled to blaze. However, the police comes to the rescue and quench the flames before they cause real damage. Among the half-time activities is the presentation of the 1960 Homecoming Queen. Bobbie Hainline, along with her court. As the group crosses the field, the Cougar Band honors the new queen with a special battalion formation, while the Scabbard and Blade Color Guard forms an archway with their sabers. Also during half-time, UH honors Mayor Lewis Cutrer who is observing his birthday. Students sing as the Cougar Band plays "Happy Birthday." The half-time ceremony, along with the football game itself, brings to a close another successful Homecoming weekend. Awards have been made, a new queen has been chosen, and the Cougars win another football game. HALF-TIME AT HOMECOMING sees many colorful floats, a band salute, a Scabbard & Blade Color Guard, queen finalists and the 1960 Homecoming Queen. Bobbie Hainline was presented Friday night at the Homecoming Dance as Homecoming Queen. Winning first place in float competition was the Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Kappa Theta "Memories" victrola. ™0 HARD-FIGHTING teamS h0,d the interest A LAST LOOK Qt the Chi Omega-Sigma Chi of UH cheerleader Judy Morriss. float near the reflection pool before it caught fire.
