Annual opportunity for alumni to go undergraduate in a
mellowed way, the Homecoming weelc-end ol 1935 had some-
what more than the usual attendant success. Activities got
under way with a student pep meeting in the field house Friday
morning, Oct. 95. Faculty member Kelley led the Festivities with
a one-man seance during which he foresaw victory for the
Lutherans. He was abetted by President Tulloss, who also pre-
dicted the boys would trim the Bishops, and by Coach Stobbs
who was less certain but said "the boys'll put up a good
fight", and had them take a bow.
Alter the convocation a student parade downtown tied up
traffic and opened the way lor a general release ol inhibitions,
lasting over the weelf-end. The parade finished in a cheer session
on the Esplanade. An all-college dance in the field house Fri-
day night, highlighted by the presentation oi Homecoming
Queen Eleanor Baily and attendants, Margaret Brillhart and
Janet McKenzie, wound up the first Homecoming day. Saturday

Reminiscent of the "good old days" was the yearling squad
which turned out in response to Coach "Tid" Schaefer's initial
summons, and, strangely enough, stayed out to talxe the battering
of the varsity for the rest of the season. Forty-five men, of varying
slcills individually but encouraging as a whole, comprised the
frosh squad. OF these, 25 remained for spring practice and won
numeral awards. Prospective varsity talent for 1936 is available

afternoon before a good-sized crowd of alumni, the Lutheran
gridders apparently decided to malce up for last year's Home-
coming fiasco, and fought an overrated Ohio Wesleyan eleven
to a near-standstill. By the margin of two points after touch-
down, the Lutherans lost, 14-1 Q, after leading most of the way.
Between halves came presentation of the Queen and attend-
ants, an interfraternity freshman pig chase, won by Ray Freeman
of Pi Kappa Alpha, announcement of house decoration winners,
and the finish of a scholastic cross country race. Climaxing days
of planning and earnest efforts at festooning fraternity and
sorority houses with assorted dummies, crepe paper ribbons, and
banners, Theta Kappa Nu's neon fireworks display and Gamma
Phi Beta's Romeo and Juliet scene were adiudged winners of the
Chamber of Commerce awards. An alumni barbecue at the field
house followed the game. Seven fraternities held dances Satur-
day evening, the affairs the alumni were waiting for all the time.
Sunday morning services at Fourth Lutheran church constituted
the calming official close to the weelc-end.
