Transcript The year 1947 brought another gift from the Hugh Roy Cullens. The donation of $400,000 was given to pay for the construction of an engineering laboratory building. The schools of Law and Pharmacy were opened in '47, and the Frontier Fiesta was resumed again for the first time since the war. In 1948, construction of the $5,500,000 Ezekiel W. Cullen Building and the Central Power Plant began. The first Army R.O.T.C. Quartermaster Corps was established at the University in '48. The '48 football season was a frantic one. Twenty-one University students swarmed down upon the campus of Sam Houston State Teachers College in Huntsville for an early- morning campaign of white-washing and placard nailing prior to a scheduled football game between the two schools. But the Cougars didn't reckon on a welcoming committee of Bearcats. When the U. H. students were finally returned home, they were sporting some very unusual haircuts. The Cougars didn't go down in dishonor, however, for when five Sam Houston students attempted to set fire to the Cougars' bonfire a few days later, they found themselves surrounded by U. H. avengers. The attempted arsonists were immediately shoved into the cage ordinarily occupied by the University's cougar mascot, Shasta, and were put on display for Houston students. A tour of the city was made, cage and all, and a haircut followed before the intruders were sent home. The Cullen Rifles, University crack drill team, was well known to Houstonians. Crowds gather at the Ezekiel Cullen Building dedication ceremonies. I ■"■■ H- "'jJLmml The "Zeke" Building begins to take shape construction almost complete. Illll iiiP, £S3 - r—i«s 15
