omecoming activities honor Chancellor, Mr .Stevens "A Tribute to John C. Stevensw was an appropriate theme for Homecoming ac- tivities Oct. 29-Nov. 1. Dr. Stevens, former president of ACU, and his wife, Ruth, were recognized throughout the festivities in honor of their 12 years of leadership and service to the university. Stevens became the university's second chancellor Aug. 27, 1981, when Dr. William J. Teague assumed the presidency. Preparation for the weekend began early in the semester when Sandy Sweeney, an English major from Tullahoma, Tenn., and Tim Myrick, an accounting major from Fort Worth, were selected to serve as Homecoming co-chairmen. Traditional activities such as Freshman Follies, the musical and Homecoming Chapel were once again favorites, but visitors on the campus enjoyed many other activities planned by the faculty and students. Anticipation of the weekend began earlier in the week when the student body selected the Homecoming Queen from 14 senior nominees. The nominees and the Coming Home Queen, Zoe Conner An- drews, were honored with a reception Friday. Mrs. Andrews provided an unexpected delight throughout the weekend activities. She entertained Chapel-goers Friday with her comical entrance and joking with President Teague. And during the football game, she delighted the crowd with her an- tics and led a yell with the Wildcat cheerleaders. Excitement mounted as the week pro- gressed, and many parents, alumni and friends arrived Friday for opening Chapel in Moody Coliseum. West Texas weather cooperated, and the weekend was sunny and pleasant. More than 6,000 students, parents and friends enjoyed an outdoor barbecue lunch that was funded by the university. "Carnival Island," a fund-raiser spon- sored by the schoo1's social clubs and organizations provided entertainment and enjoyment for those who participated. The booths included Delta Theta's mechanical bull, Galaxy's dunking machine and Zeta Rho Alpha's "decorate a cookie" booth. Students from all four classes rang the campus bell continuously from opening Chapel until the Homecoming football game. The activity was an effort to revive the tradition of ringing the bell before each home game. "South Pacific," a musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and a production of the ACU Theatre, delighted crowds at the Abilene Civic Center with four performances. "They,re Playing Our Song" was the theme for Freshman Follies. The six crowd-pleasing performances includec skits and musical entertainment, both in- strumental and vocal. The entertainment was varied, and the musical acts rangec from classical works to top 40 and jazz pieces. One of the most memorable acts of the performance, "They're Telling Our Tale,' was an all-male skit, which included a cast of punk rock characters, Tinkerbelle, 2 prince, and a king and his daughters. The weekend activities climaxed wher Lori Osburn, a social work major fron Columbia, Mo., was crowned Homecom- ing Queen during the halftime activities oi the Stephen F. Austin game. The Wildcat: easily defeated the Lumberjacks, 31-0. Homecoming activities concluded Sun- day with a luncheon honoring Chancellor Stevens. Approximately 900 guests attend- ed the luncheon and the introduction of th: .lohn C. and Ruth Stevens Scholarship More than 1,000 ACU alumni and friend: contributed to the fund.
