Transcript proposed speaking site at 9 am the next day. In the process of negotiating Senator Quayle's visit, Monasterio promised a total attendance of 4,000 students. "Wendy Adair didn't think it would be possible," Monasterio said. "But by working with the president's office and other groups we almost pulled it off." Monasterio told the news to the members of SPB and College Republicans, who then produced 1,500 flyers, and several banners, posters and signs; informed the Daily Cougar, which published a front page announcement the next day; and spoke to the Student Senate, urging representatives to notify their constituents about the visit. Monasterio contacted Student Assoiciation President Wendy Trachte. She informed the head of SA media relations who, inturn, contacted local media. Channel 8 ran announcements, asking interested parties to contact the SA. The next day, College Republicans and SPB members spent the morning posting and passing out handbills. Meanwhile, Monasterio joined Rider, Adair, and sophmore political science student Alex Abraham (in charge of security and staging the event), for a final walk-through. At 3:30pm, Senator Quayle arrived along with Governor Bill Clements, Congressman Beau Boulter, and former Senator John Tower. Though scheduled to speak at 4pm, Quayle went on stage at 4:20 because the national media was late. "He (Quayle) was very personable, and friendly," Monasterio said. "And when we walked out to the speaking platform I could tell he was excited by the crowd." As Quayle entered the speaking area, he received a good crowd response, according to Monasterio. Quayle spoke for 15 minutes, targeting Dukakis and his liberal policies. In Quayle's short message he used sports comparisons, telling the audience he and Bush were going to campaign by running like Olympic sprinter Carl Lewis — a former UH star athlete, and by stating Dukakis, like the Cougars, was using a veer offense, but one which "veers to the far left." "He had nothing prepared, but he was as polished as ever," Monasterio said. Governor Clements spoke after Quayle, then the foursome loaded up and drove to Hobby Airport. A half hour after it started, the event was finished, and a core group comprised of College Republicans and SPB members disposed of the banners, signs, posters, and picked up all the trash. For the $500 SPB spent on advertising, the University received both local and national media exposure. For Mary Monasterio, who appeared beside Senator Quayle in a photo on the front page of the Houston Chronicle, it was a treasured event. "I'm constantly reminded of it," she said. "I'll always remember walking to the speakers stand with Quayle, and feeling the excitement of all those people ' ► EdHuber Election '88 ■ 287
