Cover Story, "Homecoming 1980: Roaring on the River"

Mighty Mississippi is among the many activities scheduled for this year's Memphis State University Homecoming Week, Oct. 26-Nov. 1. The river cruise, a major concert, the wit and wisdom of Mark Twain, and the MSUVanderbilt football game will highlight a week's worth of fun for Memphis State students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Memphis community. With the theme "Roarin' on the River," the 1980 Homecoming Week should be an exciting one.
