Transcript Plaudits to Spratt are sung in a take-off on the "Hot Nuts" at the final pep rally in Cullen Auditorium. Perched atop his very own flying saucer, Senior Week winner Dick Spratt waves to a crowd of supporters waiting for him to release balloons. A Sigma Chi Barbour Shop Quartet croons, dreams, and bubbles in support of Mike Barbour, the man who "invented football." Hurry, Hurry, Hurry! Flying Saucers, sailboats, stage coaches, elephants and numerous other monstrosities invaded UH representing the various themes and schemes of Senior Week. Organizations went all out on stunts and publicity gags to honor their favorite senior gridders. The winner, halfback Dick Spratt, "landed" on campus in the full-scale KILT flying saucer. Members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Chi Omega and the UH Architectural Society bombarded spectators with colored paper plates, about 400 of them, to carry out the best theme of the contest. Bo Burris, quarterback, rode to class everyday that week on a burro. A sailboat was launched in the reflection pool in his honor and, when the wind, offered no assistance Burris backers put the donkey to work pulling the boat. End, Jim Dyar rode the campus streets on an elephant borrowed from a circus in town. Captain Dick Post covered the University with cowboys, horses and girls. His backers brought in a stage coach, robbed it and passed out Post cards to everyone. Organizations staged skits in Cullen Auditorium Friday in a final effort to give their football players the best show. 44
