Committee Terminates Parade
Homecoming Planners Formulate New Ideas
Members of the North Texas Home-
coming committee have begun formu-
lating plans for Homecoming '74 and
at least one major change has been
agreed upon by the committee mem-
bers there will be no Homecoming
In a recommendation to the com-
mittee, Dr. Ray l ewis, committee chair-
man and director of the Alumni Office,
cited a lack of support and interest as
well as all the problems involved in
pulling together the parade as the main
reasons for his suggestion that the
parade be dropped for at least one year.
"I feel that the parade, for the most
part, has been failing to meet the expec-
tations of the Homecoming Committee,
the students and the public," Dr. Lewis
said. "Without a big commercial push,
such as televised parades have, it is very
hard to get the financial support needed
to have a good parade," he added.
Dr Lewis also mentioned that the
attitude of students toward building
the parade floats has changed over the
years. It is becoming harder every year
to get bands to respond to invitations
to march in the parade because of the
gas shortage and to tight budgets.
"Last year, in an attempt to allevi-
ate some of the financial burden of buil-
ding parade floats, we tried to encourage
area businessmen to contribute money
as a promotional idea," Lewis said.
"However, due to various reasons, the
idea was not successful."
The lack of a Homecoming Parade
will create time for other activities and
the committee has begun discussing
ways to fill the time left open. One sug-
gestion was that the parade time slot
be used to lengthen the various depart-
mental open houses.
MAIZ SPENT time at Leavenworth
penitentiary in Kansas before being
transferred to the Federal Correctional
Institute in Fort Worth, where he has
worked with group therapy and counsel-
ing hard core drug addicts.
President C. C. Nolen admits Maiz’s
appointment is an experimental exper-
ience. "But if this works, I think this
school and society in general will bene-
fit. You won’t know until you try," he
"He came to our attention because of
the work of several area professors with
the Federal Correctional Institute." No-
len said. “They regard him as an accom-
plished therapist in behavior change.”
Maiz will be helpful in interpreting to the
university the needs and concerns of
minority groups, the president said.
“Of course he will also be helpful in
relating the feelings of the university to
the minorities," Nolen added.
