HOMECOMING DAY Though Homecoming this year suffered a double defeat at the hands of Baylor and the weather, nothing could dampen the ardor of returning alumni and students on a holiday. Excitement over the event fore- gathered some weeks in advance when the various Greeks started plotting as to which lovely lady they would sponsor as Queen. This year Zeta President Martha Shepherd won the coveted honor after a closely fought battle which necessitated a revote due to lack of a quorum of student votes. This only added to the excitement however, and increased the anticipation with which the campus awaited the event. Friday morning officially opened Homecoming week-end, with a special chapel program, and services for the late Doctor Sexton. Returning alumni were greeted at an open house held that night in the gymnasium where genial " Cheesy " Voran, student Counselor, served as master of ceremonies. A program combining the talents of Kollege Kapers and the Music School was presented, followed by the introduction of the mem- bers of the various classes and of the new alumni officers.

After this event the crowd adjourned for the burning of the traditional bonfire, a necessary prelude to the activities of the Big Day. The parade Saturday morning found a large number of unusually attractive floats entered in the competi- tion for the two loving cups, awarded this year to the Kappa Alpha fraternity and Alpha Xi Delta Sorority. Immediately following a luncheon at Colonial Hall students and ex-students alike defied the threatening clouds and hastened to the stadium to watch an exciting game, if not a victorious one. Another surprise awaited the fans, for at the game the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority presented the football team with a maroon and white water wagon — a much needed piece of equipment. Following the coronation of Queen Martha Shepherd, and the introduction of ex-letter men and Maroon Jackets, open houses were held at the various fraternity houses, at which time the Zetas were presented with a ten dollar award for their interest and en- thusiasm in the Homecoming program. Concluding this year ' s week-end was the huge Pan-Hellenic dance, where students and alumni gathered for one last celebration before they returned to their respective callings, not to re-unite until another Homecoming.
