'Leif have me oldfmbioned An old-fashioned boardwalk, a musical set during the Eivil War and a "simply splendid" fish performance in ireshman Follies highlighted Homecoming weekend ac- ivities Oct. 22-24. Preparation for the annual celebration began weeks before he crowds arrived when more than 60 students were ap- moirited to committees planning activities for the theme: 'Let's Have an Old-Fashioned Homecoming." Co-chairmen Lori Stobaugh, home economics major from Dverland Park, Kan., and Larry Musick, accounting major 'rom Waco, directed the weekends events. Homecoming 1982 officially opened when the 10 queen iominees and Coming Home Queen Marla Shahan Alex- inder and her court were introduced in Chaple. Excitement for the game against East Texas State Univer- :ity mounted Friday as students and alumni gathered on the Administration Building steps for a devotional and parade eading to the bonfire and pep rally. Special honor was given to Garvin Beauchamp, vice presi- ent for student services, as he received the Exceptional ecognition Award at Saturdays Homecoming Chapel. The carnival sponsored by the Student Foundation took omecoming' the shape of an old-fashioned town with store fronts and booths including steer roping, the Sigrrfa Theta Chi Sweet Shop, GATA Yum-Yum Ice Cream booth and Frater Sodalis Balloon Throw. The tradition of ringing the bell continued this year as students took turns keeping the bell ringing from opening Chapel until the football game. "Shenandoah," a musical set during the Civil War, brought tears to the eyes of many during the show's four performances at the Abilene Civic Center. And once again the freshmen delighted crowds with the Freshman Follies' production "Simple Splendor." Highlights from the variety-style show included gibes at the school cafeteria with "The Mean Bean Blues," a ballet dance and a candlelight opening song. Wildcat fans had little to cheer about at the football game as the Cats were downed 25-23 by the East Texas State Lions, with a last second field goal. But with the reunion of old friends and the crowning of Beth Owens, all-levels physical education major from Con- roe, at halftime of the game, spirits ran high throughout the remainder of the weekend. - Andrea Cannedy c 2 3 -5 Bottom left: Senior Charles Pullen, junior Oscar Brown and senior Milton Buckelew entertain the crowd at the barbecue in the mall area.
