Delta Tau Delta lawn display, ""Crack the Jayhawks"", Homecoming, 1950

Title

Delta Tau Delta lawn display, ""Crack the Jayhawks"", Homecoming, 1950

Description

A sign reading ""The egg &"" points to the ""I"" on the jersey of a large football player standing on the lawn of the Delta Tau Delta, Gamma Pi Chapter house. The player is stepping on an egg. The banner ""Crack the Jayhawks"" can be partially seen at the base of the photograph.
Alumni first began returning to Iowa State for an official Homecoming in 1912. Since then, the celebration continues to entertain both young and old Iowa Staters, with traditional events, including tailgate parties, fireworks, lawn displays, ""Yell Like Hell"" cheering competition, and mass campaniling. Currently, the Student Alumni Association Leadership Council coordinates the efforts of hundreds of students, who volunteer their time to help Story County Habitat for Humanity build a house.
