Homecoming Features Displays, Dane

$ 495


Every football weekend is
charged with spirit and filled with
activities, but Homecoming week-
end is greeted with the most en-
thusiasm and shows the results of
the hectic preparation that has
occupied everyone's time during
the two preceding weeks after the'
theme of the weekend is revealed.
At this time, clever minds in
each campus housing unit tem-
porarily divorce themselves from
the daily grind of studying and
devise a display befitting the oc-
casion, with hopes of coming out
on top in the judging.
The sequence of events sched-
uled throughout the two days can
best be described by recalling last
year's "Hollywood and Vine" theme
and the traditional contests that
have, and will, take place.
"Michigan Intermission" kicked
off the weekend on the Diag as
University cheerleaders whooped
it up with some warm-up cheers

Following this, local talent per-
formed in singing and instrumental
groups as displays neared com-
pletion for Saturday morning's
With Saturday morning came
the traditional Mudbowl Game at
the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house
between SAE and the Phi Delt's,
and then its high point, the crown-
ing of the Mudbowl queen. This
coveted title was captured by Chi
Omega's Jane - Tarzan's mate -
who cavorted around the area. The
past five years have also seen the
Tug of War between last year's
champs of Taylor House and the
members of Gomberg House, who
tasted the Huron River after their
defeat. The Diag asw more action
that morning as the annual Saint
Bernard Chariot Race featuring
Delta Upsilon's "Brandy II" and
Lambda Chi Alpha's "Major IV"
was held - Lambda Chi Alpha's
doggy mascot taking the prize.
The football game concluded
with a disappointing score - Wis-
consin 19, Michigan 10 in a battle
of defenses before a crowd of 68,-
063. Michigan's victors may have
been vanquished, but its students
await this year's triumph with re-
newed hope.
At halftime the names of the
display winners were announced.
Theta Delta Chi won in the fra-
ternity division with "The Story
That Had to be Told: 'Franken-
stein' At Michigan," depicting air
electrically-run Wisconsin Frank-
enstein, jeered at by University
students. In the men's independent
housing division, Gomberg's "Vik-
ings Valiant" showing a blue and
gold Michigan Viking ship took
first place.
Among the sororities, Kappa
Alpha Theta's "Wisconsin's our
KAT on a Hot Tin Roof" with its

huge black paper mache cat took
the highest honors. Couzen's Hall
won a first place among the, com-
petitors in the women's independ-
ent housing division with its "Hail
to the Victors" showingwa two-
story-high Mr. Magoo waving a
pennant and singing.

Oct. 31, Halloween for mo
the United States, was "Holly
and Vine" time at the danc
the Intramural building a
Count Basie played and was
companied by vocalist Joe Will
until 1 a.m., in an atmosphei
a Hollywood movie premiere.

weekend this year. The football game around which festivities
focus is the traditional Michigan-Minnesota contest, in which the
Little Brown Jug, shown above, is at stake.
