Transcript Sidewalk spectators support their team and harass the competition to the finish line, above. Miss Texas-Universe presents OB Gang Banger Max Crowell with the first place trophy for the men's race. Two OB Teams Sweep Fourth and Largest Sigma Nu "Little 500" All of UH's free wheeling bike enthusiasts, resplendent in their colorful garb, showed up for the fourth and biggest Sigma Nu Little 500 Bike Race. Riding tandum, Barrie Wight, assistant dean of students, and Connie Wallace, assistant dean of women, whizzed past the judges stand in championship style to capture first place in the faculty race. The eight lap girl's race offered a show in the fine art of pedal pushing as 23 teams battled it out for the first place slot. The OB Gang Bangerettes out-pedaled second place Lanyard Club and third place Delta Gamma to secure their trophy. More like a physical endurance test, the 24-lap boy's race saw riders zoom past the crowd in a "catch me if you can" style. For the second straight year, the OB Gang Bangers overpowered their competition to take first place honors as Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Chi placed second and third. The bike team from Houston's "other" school scored their third straight win over the UH team in the last and most contested event of the race. Larry "Boney Parker" Markley guns down Bonnie Hellumns during the faculty race, below. Delta Zeta Lynda Johnson collapses into helping hands after her eight lap workout in the girl's race, left. Below, a zoom lens sweeps the furious, pedaling pace as Mary Ellen McArdle nears the finish. Miss Texas-Universe waves the go-ahead flag signaling the start of the Rice-UH race, above. For the third straight year, the team from Houston's "other" school out-pedaled the UH'ers for the trophy. 84
