Transcript Homecoming introduces new traditions Homecoming started off with a bang and carried that intensity throughout the week until Saturday's football game. With the theme "All- American: Red, White, and You," students and alumni alike agreed that the members of the Homecoming Committee put on a splendid week long party. With the blast of a siren and the pounding vibes of the Cougar Marching Band, Homecoming week officially began. The Kick- Off pep rally featured Athletics Director Chet Gladchuck and members of the football team who spoke at the event. Homecoming Chair Judy Johnson also announced the 1998-1999 Homecoming Court. Following the Kick-Off, students entertained themselves at the Carnival, which included wax hands, jousting, and sumo wrestling. One of the goals for the week long celebration was to "bring individuals out that don't necessarily belong to an organization," according to Johnson, who said that "in the past, the only people who showed up for events were Greeks and other club affiliates." Johnson and the committee tried to widen the field to include the whole student population.

On Friday, a new tradition was start- ed-Parade Across Campus. The event featured golf carts that were assigned to different organizations decorated in keeping with the "All-American: Red, White, and You" theme. The parade route took the carts across campus and helped to pump up spirit. UH Ambassadors took home first place for their golf-cart, continued on page 20 Given a chance to pulverize each other, friends took advantage of their opportunity to sumo wrestle at the carnival. Many new games and events encouraged students to be involved in Homecoming activities. Running the ball, Jennifer Williams of the Ballaz team, is surrounded by opponents as she helps her team to a victory in the Beauty Bowl. Although the game is a recent addition to the Homecoming slate of activities, it quickly became of the most popular contests. Numerous organizations joined the competition in Paint the Campus and Banner Day, displaying UH red and white. Both competitions were won by Delta Epsilon. All American: Red White &You • 1 9
