Transcript Frontier Fiesta - Dead or Alive Throughout the preceding pages we have looked at Fiesta in all its color, excitement, and glory. We have also seen it as tiresome nights without sleep, sweaty shirts, never-ending rehearsals and seemingly insurmountable problems. But, Fiesta was alive. During the year 1959-60, we have not had to spend those nights on the lot working in spite of rain and mud; we haven't had to develop our minds to new limits for greater ideas; we haven't had to do a lot of giving and taking to insure the smooth working of a show. We have been able to spend those nights in the comfort of our home, playing cards or watching TV; we have been able to sit back and enjoy hearing of the thousands of spirited deeds and accomplishments of those poor, tired, ingenious students of other colleges. We haven't had great throngs of people traveling to our campus, hearing about us on the noon news, reading about us in their newspapers, and praising the spirit and ingenuity of our student body. Yes ... we have been dormant. We have seen Fiesta dead. Can it be that we are too tired? Or are we too unconcerned? Or could it be that we have not taken the time to analyze Fiesta for its complete worth in the past and its great potential for the future? Surely if the students of 1940 thought it worthwhile ... if the students of 1946 felt its loss during the war years great enough to crusade to revive it ... if publications with millions of readers believed it worthy of their pages . . . if, night after night, thousands have left their homes to seek and find entertainment from it . . . surely it must be valuable enough to warrant all the thought we can muster to save it. The spirit of Fiesta has been the spirit of the University of Houston. Thought and consideration, then hard work, can revive its color, its excitement, its spirit. And once again Yosemite Sam's phrase will ring out, "You'd Better Be Thar" . . . and we all will.
