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
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
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.

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
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
Halfway through each perfor-
mance the hosts, hostesses,
freshman ushers and the jazz
ensemble filled the coliseum with
balloons and vibrations of the
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.
