Transcript In the groove, students execute some fancy steps to the beat of the Proper Circle. The boots of the Proper Circle were made for tapping at the Homecoming Street Dance. "I love a parade/' says President Hoffman, leading the way to the bonfire. 40 Torches fly from every direction as the bonfire begins its brief life. Voting booths were set up outside for the first time to catch students between classes. Votes were cast for Homecoming Queen, six student senators and an amendment to the SA constitution. Homecoming Week Means More Than 7 Days The first week in November took on the aura of a circus. It was Homecoming Week, King Ugly Week, Senior Week, Student Association Election Week and Mid- semester Exam Week. Homecoming activities took to the center ring. During the week students campaigned for their favorite Homecoming Queen candidates. Posters and banners decorated the campus. Handbills littered the halls and grounds. Rumors that the traditional Alpha Phi Omega bonfire was to be canceled stopped when construction began on the tower of soft drink cartons and lumber. For safety the structure was cut from last year's 30 feet down to 20 feet. Homecoming activities were officially opened with a torchlight parade from the off-campus dorms to the intramural field where the bonfire waited for the kerosene and matches. President Philip G. Hoffman carried a torch as he led a fired- up crowd of students to the bonfire site. As the fire died, the music came alive for the street dance crowd in the Calhoun parking lots. The beat from several local groups kept students dancing until midnight. Homecoming activities ended with the Homecoming Dance Friday night and the Tulsa football game Saturday. The Cougars presented UH with a 73-14 Homecoming victory over the Hurricanes. 41
