Sounds of hammers and saws
are echoing across campus this
week, as students in the various
housing units work on last-minute
details for Homecoming displays.
Because the football game this
Saturday is with Minnesota, most
displays will have something con-
cerning the two teams in their
themes. Some themes are even
based on Elvis Presley.
Besides the 99 displays and the
football game, the annual mud-
bowl game will be played in the

Mudbowl Queen Chosen
At this time each year, Phi Delta
Theta fraternity challenges Sigma
Alpha Epsilon to a football game
while students and alumni stand
around cheering. An importantf
part of this event is the choosing
of a mudlbowl queen during half-
time. Sororities choose a male1
student who they dress up as a fe-
male and present to the judgesf
who choose a winner based on
originality, humor, femininity and
This year's mudbowl game will

campus to play the Varsity football

ences are truly manifested, after
her college days are over, through
her famliy."
