Transcript / A Red Carpet Rolls Out, A Symbolic Key Changes Hands A Dream Is Dedicated And Called A University Center Breaking away from the crowd in the Ballroom, a couple takes a quiet stroll through the courtyard downstairs. Below, before the dedication luncheon on Saturday, Dr. and Mrs. Allred and Pres. Hoffman receive well wishers from all over the state. begun in February BE IT DEDICATED "The University Center . of 1965 is now complete TO YOU." This sentiment was expressed on programs announcing plans for formal dedication of the Center. Four days of special events followed as final and official observation of the new building's opening. This second major week of activities began with a choral presentation by the Delmar Junior College Concert Choir and a dramatic presentation of the poems of Walt Whitman by Alexander Scourby. In the middle of dedication week ceremonies an informal all-school dance was held in the Houston Room. A reverberating group called the Sandpipers was featured. Another informal event featured entertainment by the Swamp City Singers from UH and Comedian Zaney Blaney. Weekend dedication festivities were attended by invitation only. Prominent dtizens and alumni from throughout the state and 200 student leaders were invited. Red carpets and black ties were in order for the formal dedication ball on Friday evening in the Houston Room. A revolving prism- cut ball hung high over the dance floor and cast patterns on the dancers. Elegantly dressed couples strolled through the Center. The entire building seemed transformed from a bustle of daily student activities to a serene setting of elegance. Formal dedication ceremonies were presided over by President Philip G. Hoffman on Saturday afternoon. Dr. Chester A. Berry, director of the Stanford University student union was the keynote speaker. Then the key was passed from Hoffman to UC Board Chairman Bill Walker and Program Council President David Amidon. The Center was at last a reality for the UH community. Stanford Union Director Dr. Chester A. Berry gives suggestions on student involvement in center activities to Policy Board Chairman Bill Walker, Director Bill Scott, President Hoffman and the dedication ceremony audience. Red candles cast a glow on red, black and white wooden blocks and greenery adorning each table at the Dedication Ball. The modern decorations created a romantic mood and carried out the over-all color theme. The University of Houston Concert Band, directed by Jamet T. Mathews, had its first performance in the Center during the open house. Weekly appearances by the band in the Arbor later became a ma|or attraction. 56 57
