This is accomplished through a multiplicity of programs that concentrate upon military education, humanitarian efforts and social responsibilities. ROTC Sponsor elections were held at the beginning of the year with just two returning sponsors, Carol Benoit and Robbie Yates. Out of ten new sponsors, Glenda Sanders was chosen Outstanding Sponsor at the end of the year. The election of sponsors was one of the lighter duties taken on by the corps. Hard work consisted of regular classes, on-campus exercises and fall and spring field problems. Weekend trips were taken to the fields of Sam Houston National Forest in the Big Thicket area. The corpsmen regularly perform in halftime shows during football season, participate in drill competitions and serve as escorts for various ceremonies. As humanitarian projects, the corps aided the Easter Seal Foundation by transporting crippled children to the Houston Livestock Show. Officers and sponsors also sang Christmas carols to invalids at St. Anthony's and the Veteran's Administration Hospital. Annually, the Cougar Rifle Drill Team and ROTC Band travel to New Orleans for a Mardi Gras parade. The Military Ball, the big social event for the corpsmen, was held last year in the Houston Executive Club. 417
