Transcript All she needed was a crown. Gloria Gillespie is presented to approving multitudes at the Tennessee game as 1953 Homecoming Queen. Flowers and a chivalrous escort are tendered by Sherwood Crane, Alumni President. A submarine tackle fetches only Rice Stadium sod as Tennessee puts a touchdown across. Cougar fans had little to mourn though, as the Big Red romped to a 33-19 Homecoming victory. An estimated 20,000 exes whooped it up at the game and many attended the dance at the Shamrock which followed. Oil man-philanthropist, Hugh Roy Cullen, came to watch the Homecoming parade. But interest seems evenly divided between the University's number one fan and the passing parade. Mr. Cullen seems to be expecting rain. A sizeable downpour which would have cancelled the parade was feared by all but never came. "What's the secret of your success, ma'am?" KPRC-TV newsman Bob Gray asks Homecoming Queen finalists. Left to right are Gloria Gillespie, Gerry Dick, Shirley Rose, Nancy Daugherty and Shirley Tyson. It didn't take Santa to help Kappa Delta Kappa and Delta Sigma to a first in the Homecoming float contest. But the old man and his reindeer smile down from a department store perch as paper mache Cougars flail the stuffings out of a Tennessee Volunteer invader. Women and song lead off the Homecoming parade. Twirlers set the pace with a military air as the Big Red bandsmen step it off. 292 293
