Transcript Homecoming Queen NANCY DAUGHERTY at halftime ceremony Houston, Nov. 27 . . . During the summer when the Alumni Association was looking for a football team that the Cougars would have a good chance of defeating, little did they realize that by scheduling Arkansas for homecoming, the U of H would be faced with the Southwest Conference champion and one of the nation's top teams. Clyde Lee's Houston eleven held the Porkers scoreless throughout the first period, but Arkansas lived up to its reputation of playing cool, relentless football and took advantage of Houston mistakes. A bad punt gave the Porkers the ball on the Cougar 32, and nine plays later Tommy Lockhart scored six for the visitors. The extra point made the halftime scoreboard read, Arkansas 7, Houston 0. Late in the third period a Houston fumble was recovered by Bud Brooks, the Porkers' All-American guard. A 45-yard drive, sparked by a fourth-down-23-yard pass to the Houston two yard line, and the spectacular head-first dive by Fullback George Walker tallied six for Arkansas and the Razorbacks led at the end of the third period 13-0. In the final quarter the SWC Champs drove 75 yards on 13 plays for the final score of the game. The extra point was missed and the Rice Stadium scoreboard read, Arkansas 19, Houston 0 before a Homecoming crowd of 25,000.
