Transcript Alumni Return to Bonfire, Awards, I Bands and Spirit Coach Bill Yoeman, George Nordgren and Sportscaster Johnny Temple discuss game plans at the Bonfire, above. Right, swingers shingaling at the Homecoming Dance. Carol Nelson grooves to the beat of the Street Dance band, left. Below left, the leader of the torchlight parade, Ole Glory, whips in the wind and heat of the Bonfire. 50 For the first time in UH history the Homecoming Bonfire was not lit on campus. Due to the increasing danger of the big blaze spreading, the festivities were moved to a vacant lot on the north side of campus. The second annual torchlight parade started at Baldwin House and proceeded to the Bonfire grounds. There President Hoffman touched off the conflagration to the screams and cheers of eight cheerleaders and hundreds of football fans. As the embers died in the Bonfire, the crowd moved pensively back to the sounds of the Street Dance band, The Clique. Friday night, The Fever Tree, the Glass Cans and The Accents droned into the wee hours at the Homecoming Dance in the Rice Hotel. At the Dance, Chi Omega was presented the Outstanding Sorority Trophy, Delta Sigma Phi and Alpha Chi Omega were awarded first place trophies as Senior Week winners and Bruce Owens was announced King Ugly. Below, students raise hands and cower from the fire's intense flames. Right, a big man in tall boots wails out the stereophonic sounds of The Clique. 51
