Transcript "Hail the conquering heroine." Left, Alan- a Cooke gives a victory wave after winning the Bed Race for the Pikes. "Ohhh", moans Sandy Zilker as Troy Williams and Doug Joyce push their collapsed bed to the finish, below. Above, starters ready their beds for the opening gun. Gill Saenz, Jim Pat Berger, Dick Woodall, Bill Pickens and Tom Paciorek direct traffic in the Gamma Sigma Sigma Turtle Race. Students Connive, Contort, Clown To Win Games A bed is a bed—until it is a race car. And all kinds of unusual sleeping equipment were adapted for the Sigma Phi Epsilon Bed Race. Male organizations could decorate and manipulate their bed in any style while a coed of their choice sat on top and harrassed her competitors with anything she could get her hands on. Thus the starting gun was followed by splats from eggs, tomatoes and water filled balloons. Unfortunately, spectators were not protected during the pelting session. The "Most Unusual Race of the Year" award went to Gamma Sigma Sigma and their Turtle Race, formed as a kick-off for Senior Week. Teams of two senior football players coached their own creepy crawlers, few of which had had any previous racing experience. The winner broke all racing records at five feet in three minutes. Gamma Sigma Sigma explains contest rules to turtle lovers. 46 47
