Sing Songsters take a ard The winter blahs at ACU? No, that problem was cured in 1957 when an activity known as Sing Song was prescribed. Since then Sing Song has become a major production involving thousands of people and man hours. Each person's four-minute participation on stage required many long hours of nightly practices, sear- ches for costume makers, frantic purchases of tickets for parents in the "nose bleed" section of Moody Coliseum and searches for motel reservations. The theme for the 26th annual Sing Song was "Command Performance." Sing Song coordinator John Duty and co-chairmen Roxy Halekakis, senior business education major from Eagle Pass, and Jon Howard, junior bankingffinance major from Tex- arkana, chose the theme in honor of Dr. William J. Teague's inauguration that weekend. Duty, the co- chairmen, the hosts and hostesses produced the Friday night, Saturday afternoon and evening performances Feb. 19 and 20. The three shows resulted in some unusual occurrences. One club was dismissed entirely from the program, another club sang longer than the four-minute limit each nightg one class complained about another class that used a similar special effect from the previous yearg and an audience member fell and was injured. The excitement of Sing Song was dampened somewhat Friday night when a 42-year-old Abilene man fell down several steps in the coliseum. Bill Love, 1535 Oak St., cut his head and broke his elbow in the fall. This page: Nancy Chester and Dita Keesee perform the theme from "Fame" with the freshmen ushers.

Members of the junior class also claimed they were injured. They filed a complaint with Duty charging the freshman class with taking their finale, a costume change to form a Texas flag, from the juniors' 1981 performance. Duty and the co- chairmen overruled the complaint, and the show went on. Between each groupis four-minute presentation, the hosts and hostesses, provided a variety of musical entertainment. Hosts David Baker, senior public relations major from Dallas, and John Muns, senior marketing major from Plano, combined their talents with those of hostesses Nancy Chester, senior radio-television major from Austin, and Dita Keesee, junior music major from Lubbock, to sing songs from the pop and country charts. From upbeat songs like "Fantasy" and "Boy from New York Cityf, to the more mellow tunes of "Sail- ingn and "Berkeley Squaref, the foursome proved their musical versatility. Halfway through each perfor- mance the hosts, hostesses, freshman ushers and the jazz ensemble filled the coliseum with balloons and vibrations of the song "Fame" In the women's social club competition, the women of GATA found their "Thrill of ACU Hill" as "Girls Scout Boys of America." Then the GATA Boy Scouts transformed into brides "who always get their man." The club won first in originality and costume and second in vocal. The women of Zeta Rho Alpha performed as "a trash can for the count" and "Can-Cann girls. The black and gray garbage cans sang the importance of trash collectors and the respect due them. The Kappa Delian Shri women melted in the au- dienceis heart, not in its hands, dressed as M8LM candies. Costumed in brown, yellow, green and orange, they sang tribute to the chocolate candies. Not stopping for any red lights in the competition, Sigma Theta Chi dressed as yellow traffic lights and received awards for first place in vocal and second place in costume. Sing Song 23
