Title

Beta Theta Pi Homecoming lawn display, ""Splat that Cat,"" 1953

Description

This lawn display consists of a semi-reclining bare-foot male figure dressed in ragged pants, shirt and hat. His head rests against a liquor barrel. He is pointing a shotgun at a Tiger figure that is suspended by one ear from a goal post.
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.
