Transcript FRONT: Tom Spiva, C W. Nicolini, and Frank Markey. BACK: Raymond Jeffreys, Bary Bennick, Bert Young, and Phil Coleman. Cougar Guard Cares for Most Traveled Mascot, "Shasta" IVlost college mascots are mouldy, stuffed relics in campus museums. Not so at the University, whose walls are too new to boast ivy, but whose mascot still is in her prime. One of the very first projects sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega Service fraternity was a fund raising drive to purchase a mascot to inspire the newly organized football team. Students, who chipped in coins and, occasionally, folding money for the project, also went into action when time came to name the newly-acquired Cougar cub. The winning entry observed in part that: She has to be fed. She hasta be watered. Sh' hasta be cared for. Say the first three words fast and there is her name, SHASTA. That was October of 1947. Since then, Shasta has brought three cubs, Tom Jr., Shorty (now deceased), and Hasta into the world to help inspire Cougar gridders. She has attended nearly every University football game since 1947, traveling a total of nearly 35,000 miles. Members of the Cougar Guard, Alpha Phi Omega volunteers, who have cared for the "kitty" from the start, estimate that she is one of the nation's most traveled mascots.
