Transcript A Memorable Heard said. The Delta Zeta Gong Show was a first-time event that invited students to let their hair down right before the weekend began. After the bonfire — there was a choice of Casino Night or pep rally and video dance, with music and DJ donated by Hit Video USA. The week culminated in a 10-10 tie against Texas Tech. This was the first time that the Cougars had tied the Red Raiders since the teams started playing each other in 1981. "A tie is not what we had in mind," UH Coach Jack Pardee said. There was the antics of a gong show, a blazing bonfire, a Mexican feast and a coat and tie dance. But, missing from Homecoming '87 was the float parade. "Our budget was cut, and we had to cancel the parade this year," Don Heard, co-chairperson of homecoming activities said. "It usually costs about $4,000 to have to parade." But, the lack of funding did not hinder the "Year of the Cat" homecoming activities which coincided with the university's 60th birthday. The celebrations began with a fund-raising basketball game with the proceeds going towards remodeling Shasta's cage. Then, it was the kick-off ceremony which was held in Lynn Eusan Park. After a tug-of-war and a water ballon toss Cinco Dudes took to the stage to entertain the masses. "The student events are sponsored by campus organizations who are really involved in UH activities," elebration Students danced the night away at Astrovil- lage Hotel, where Vince Vance and the Valiants performed.

Sweatshirts are available throughout the year, but were most popular during the week of homecoming festivities. Students ended the week of homecoming activities, minus a parade, with a dance hosted by the Alumni Organization. All photos by Hugh Tom. The student association gave out footballs and towels at the homecoming game against Texas Tech. Final score Cougars 10 — Red Raiders 10. "The Year of the Cat," the theme for Homecoming '87, caught the university mascot napping during halftime. 8 University of Houston Student Life 9
