Houstonian Photo. The Blaze was an important part of Cougar spirit at UH and was a symbol of Cougar football, said Rusty Hruska, former president of the Students' Association. The Blaze, better known as the air-raid siren, was a tradition at UH football games since its introduction at the 1990 Homecoming game. Cougar fans soon began to associate victory with the wail of the siren. The original siren, borrowed from the Whelen Engineering Company, was unattractive and often hidden behind the end-zone seats. "It was a yellow piece of crap," said Hruska. Although it was heard and not seen, the siren served its purpose, alerting Cougar fans to a home-team touch- = down. In 1990, former Head Coach John Jenkins contacted the UH Taxi Squad (a booster club) and requested support in purchasing a new siren-one that could be visible, said Hruska. The shiny, new crank siren that blessed the Astrodome in the fall of 1990 was dubbed The Blaze. Originally manned by members of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, The Blaze soon became the responsibility of various campus LOCKED UP FOR A GOOD CAUSE...

Currently, the leaders include Students' Association former President Rusty Hruska, Inter- Fraternal Council President Pat Brown, Sigma Nu Commander Tom Dalton, Sigma Phi Epsilon President Bob Patman and four Sigma Chi's of the original group: Gavin Kaszynski, Mike Hoover, Scott Kirkland and T.J. Debello. These eight men, now called the Frontiersmen, are also in charge of the Helmet (formerly the Beauty Buggy), and the fog on the sidelines when the Cougars run onto the field. The Frontiersmen are looking at changes in the near future to improve Cougar spirit. "We want to bring all UH students into one section at the games to raise spirit," said Hruska. In addition, they planned to work with the cheerleaders to become "stand leaders" in hopes of uniting the student body, said Hruska. "We're always looking for new members," — said Hruska. "But future members must be educated in the history of the university to be eligible." He said he hopes to expand the membership each year. -Heather Wolk Organizations Frontiersmen 223
