Responsibility keys Saddle Tramp tradition Pushing pride The Saddle Tramps have been a tradition at Tech for almost 50 years. Founded by Arch Lamb, head yell leader in 1936, the Tramps were the first spirit organization at Tech. The Tramps have many re- sponsibilities, according to secretary Tommy Elzner. " Along with promoting spirit, the Saddle Tramps also do a variety of other activities, in- cluding academic recruiting throughout the year and athlet- ic recruiting in the spring, " said Elzner. Saddle Tramp actives and pledges give tours to prospec- tive students throughout the year and also help with fresh- man orientation during the summer, Elzner said. They also are responsible for attending all freshman athletics. During football season, the Tramps run the ticket draw be- fore each home game, deco- rate the stadium, greet visiting teams and promote spirit with- in the campus community. Becoming the Midnight Raiders, the Saddle Tramps sweep the campus in the night hours before football games and leave it streaming with red and black crepe paper. Will Rogers, who keeps guard at Memorial Circle from atop Soapsuds, is left engulfed in the red waves. The tradition helps bring enthusiasm to stu- dents and creates a feeling of pride among Red Raider fans, Elzner said. Members of the Saddle Tramps also are the keepers of the Victory BeU in the Admin- istration Building tower. Af- ter each Tech victory in foot- ball, men ' s basketball and men ' s baseball, the Tramps ring the bell for exactly 30 min- utes in order to display pride in the Tech teams, said Elzner. In addition. Saddle Tramp members attend mixers and chapter church with several sororities on campus. The Tramps also support and play a part in the selection of Raiderette drill team members in the fall and spring. Officers were president, Bruce Rodgers; first vice pres- ident, Tal Clark; second vice president, Danny Roth; secretary, Elzner; treasurer, Mark Rierson; and sergeants- at-arms, Bruce Church and Jeff Burk. — Dianne Bippert Saddle Tramps Kevin Perper and Curt Langford show their support for Tech.

The little things that count Sisterhood Tau Beta Sigma, sister to Kappa Kappa Psi, supports the Texas Tech bands. " We have all the sisterhood the so- cial sororities talk about, too, " said Cindy Banks. " We do a lot for the band, but beyond that it ' s fun and games and parties too. " TBS, consistently one of the nation ' s top 10 chapters, makes seat covers for Jones Stadium band seats and fur- nishes food and first aid kits for road trips. " The guys in KKY do most of the heavy stuff for the band, and we do more of the — I guess you ' d call it the girl-type stuff, " Banks said. TBS and KKY sponsor the annual fall Marching Festival for area high school bands. " We have to pay to use Jones Stadium, and then for the equipment to videotape and record every band, plus post- ers and putting those up and so on, so the Marching Festival is a pretty expensive project, but we always make a profit, " she said. Fall officers were Banks, president; Ashley McArthur, vice president; Taney Bald- win, pledge trainer; Shawn Dempsey, assistant pledge trainer; Kristin Rein, record- ing secretary; Kelly Cowart, corresponding secretary; Becky Boyd, treasurer; Andrea Kelley, ritual chairman; Kathy Ashmore, rules chairman; Ruth Ann Rei- ger, rush chairman; and Kay Cozby, rush assistant. Facul- ty sponsor was Helen Brittin. — Sarah Liiman Mary Arthur Kalhy Ashmore Cynthia Banks Jennifer Bowen Bethany Boyd Rebecca Boyd Mehnda Corwin Kelly Cowan Kay Cozby Gai!
