Transcript tf#M Festivities a. success despite confUct he 1989 UH Homecoming celebration "Cougarfest," held on October 18-21, served as a shining example of the return of Cougar pride at the University of Houston. Sponsored by the Student Program Board and the UH Alumni Association, Homecoming Week had record involvement from all areas of the university community. Cougarfest was full of activities in which all fans could participate. Annual events like the Indian Students' Organization Food Fair, the Residence Halls Association Beauty Bowl and the Alpha Phi Omega Bonfire gave the week a traditional flavor, spiced with the spirit of the pep rally at the end of the week. Shannon Hills and Maury Blackman were named Homecoming Queen and King, inadvertently sparking a controversy when "The Daily Cougar" failed to run photos of the court. There was some alleged racism or the part of the campus newspaper, as its editor maintained that the crowning of the first black Homecoming Queen in several years was not newsworthy. However, none of the controversy put a damper or the week, especially after the UH football team demolished SMU 95-21. Most importantly, Homecoming served to bring UH supporters together with spirit and pride. "Homecoming is one of the few real traditions we have here at the University of Houston," said Veena Sardana, chair of the Homecoming Committee "Every year, its vigor and momentum increase. I think we had an incredible week, and I'm really looking forward to next year's events." — Lee Grooms he construction of the bonfire takes alot of time and work. Photo vj y Lewie. pectacular! The bonfire burns long and bright for Cougar fans. W' jT Craig Chesseman.
