Homecoming emphasized tradition and anniversaries stivities failed to attract student Homecoming 1984 seemed to lack some of the pizzazz of previous years, according to several Tech students and faculty members. Al- though there were several spirited events to promote enthusiasm throughout the campus, the home- coming failed to attract as many stu- dents as in years before. Homecoming events included a display celebrating the Masked Rid- er ' s 30th anniversary. The display, designed by Southwest Collection staff members, stood in the Univer- sity Center throughout homecom- ing week but was not well attended. Other events were the FHA Road Rally, the RHA Scavenger Hunt, two Courtyard Concerts in the Uni- versity Center, Red and Black Day, a Coach ' s Coffee, " Fall Into the Tech Spirit, " the homecoming queen election, and a Chinese Magic Circus. The pep rally and homecoming dance took place on Friday, and a pre-parade breakfast. Red Raider Road Race, Tech pa- rade, homecoming buffet and a pre- game show preceded the homecom- ing game against Baylor on Satur- day. Despite the festivities, the game resulted in an 18-9 loss. Festivities during Homecoming 1984 stirred up enthusiasm among some students, but many did not participate in the activities. " One reason homecoming is not as exciting as it used to be is because we haven ' t been winning our games, " said Mike Haynes, Stu- dent Publications editorial adviser, who attended Tech in the early 1970s. " School spirit is less apparent be- cause students seem more practical and are more interested in getting degrees and jobs.

Festivities continued from page 13 faculty members and students said the early date of homecoming kept down interest. 1984 Homecoming Queen Karen Mayfield is a diversified woman with many talents, hobbies, and re- sponsibilities. A fourth-year tele- communications major from Santa Fe, N.M., she enjoys running, skiing, ice skating, swimming, pho- tography, and " sportswatching. " Mayfield belonged to Chi Omega and held the position of head coordina- tor for Raider Recruiters for the fourth consecutive year. As the reigning queen, Mayfield represented Tech at the Cotton Bowl and attended banquets and public meetings throughout the year. She also did ads for Lubbock businesses. — Jane Quinn During the pep rally, cheerleaders Alicia Oli- va and Steve Minion perform stunts to an enthusiastic pep rally crowd. > - * m^sm AJV.-^ ' After the crowning, a friend congratulates Karen Mayfield during the homecoming game.
