Willy and Wilma - From the beginning, it was not good for man to be alone. io imagine what could happen to a wildcat without a mate. To save Willy from a woolly decline, the idea of Wilma vas conceived. Actually, said jim McKissick, second-year ,. ay tw Eugwdrs Y bashful they ain't Willy and unofficial head mascot, the idea came up because U35 very good people tried out for the Willy Wildcat posi- tion." Several men and women were chosen to alternate play- ing Willy and Wilma, but McKissick said this ended up be- ing more of a problem because communication among the group became too scattered to be effective. On the whole, Wilma didn't go over as well as Willy because she didn't look like her partner. McKissick said she needed to be "more animated." However, Willy continued to have as much crowd appeal as ever. McKissick said the key to Willy's ability to get a crowd cheering was the total lack of inhibition displayed by those portraying Willy. That was the real joy of being a mascot, he said. "Everybody had some showmanship inside," he said "but behind the mask you were free to let go. That's what I got out of it." Enthusiasm built up in his voice as he continued. "You can do things with Willy you could not do in real life . . . and nobody knows who you are." The unabashed Willys were McKissick, Charles Pullen, Bob Griffith and Danny Dodds. Wilma was played by Janie Webb,jobie Cabell, Denise Whiteside and Tamara Childers. - Amy Haweld 2 CJ H ,.
