Text from Pages 1 - 232 of the 1926 volume:

3o8 9 COPYRIGHT This book will become, as the years pass, more and more a book of mem- ories. The light that strikes backward across the pages will bring out in the familiar landscape surprising features. Mountains will dwindle into mole- hills; mole-hills may loom into mountains. Jokes that seemed excruciatingly funny may lose their point, and disasters and tragedies may take on a comic air. Some of the high spots may fade out altogether. But, as they fade, others will emerge. The day on which a friendship was born will keep its halo; so will the humdrum class-room hour when some enkindling word reached us out of the past; and beauty, like a butterfly, suddenly drifted through the dusty air. Somehow, the look of pine trees will be forever entangled with certain ideas and loyalties; and the brick and mortar of the buildings that sheltered our labors will seem less substantial things than certain remembered hours of victory, of liberation, or of love. When these things shall have come to pass, and we, a scattered fellowship, shall turn the yellowing pages, perhaps we shall begin to understand the somewhat cryptic saying of a modern master; " The days that make us happy make us wise. " Page 5 D E D I CAT I O To Thomas E. Fergu- son, in recognition of the constructive influence upon the Stephen F. Aus- tin State Teachers Col- lege and of the enthu- siasm he has given both teachers and students in their work, this issue of The Stone Fort is dedicated. The historic old Stone Fort is an eloquent reminder of the sacrifices and patriotism of our Pioneer Fathers, who estab- lished here Anglo-American civilization and dedicated the fairest of all lands to Universal Education, Religious Freedom, and Representative Government. BOARD OF REGENTS OF THE TEXAS STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE Honorable M. O. Flowers, President... __.Lockhart Honorable H. A. Turner, Secretary Austin Miss Margie E. Neal, Vice-President .. Carthage Honorable J. J. Bennett Stephenville Honorable A. B. Martin Plainview Honorable Henry Paulus Yoakum Honorable A. B. Mayhew Uvalde Page 21 wealth of Texas has made a large investment in each one of you. Texas, therefore, expects you to render to her distinct, even dis- tinguished service. It is your privilege and your duly to exem- plify the highest type of citizenship, to be exponents of good government, to be evangels of education and culture, to do well your appointed tasks. As teachers, the hands of the little chil- dren are held up to you. Your own welfare and the welfare of the State depend on the direction in which you lead them. Therefore, prove yourselves workmen who need not to be ashamed. Sincerely, A. W. BIRDWELL, President. Thomas E. Ferguson Dean of the Faculty Mr. Thomas E. Ferguson, Dean of the Faculty, has been an inspiration to all the teachers and students who have come in contact with him. He has given them higher ambitions, and he has made them accomplish more than they thought was ever possible by making them want to live up to his expectations of them. He has been one of the most outstanding figures in our college since its founding. C. E. Ferguson Dean of Students Mr. C. E. Ferguson has filled a most difficult position; more- over he has filled it so well that he has made a friend of every stu- dent of the College. He has the rather unique ability of being able to retain the friendship of a student even after he has per- suaded the student to attend assembly when there is something else he would prefer to do. His personality has made his math- ematics courses well-attended, although mathematics courses are not required courses. Mr. Ferguson is much esteemed as a teacher, but by the students he is first thought of as a friend. Miss Ruth Mays Dean of Women Miss Mays has an office on the top floor of the Administration Building. This office, with its home- like appearance and comfortable coziness, is a refuge to m any a homesick girl. In this little retreat Miss Mays gives advice to those who need it with a kind- liness that is unmistakable. She is always ready to give help where help is needed and to lend the force of her personality to a worthy movement.

I hear their ceaseless wings: Their songs J hear, some far, some near. And thus the burden rings: " The morn has fled, the noon has past, The sun will soon be set. The twilight fade to midnight shade: Remember — and Forget! " Remember all that time has brought— The starry hope on high. The strength attained, the courage gained, The love that cannot die. Forget the bitter, brooding thought. — The word too harshly said. The living blame, love hates to name The frailties of the dead! Ah, Boys! we clustered in the dawn. To sever in the dark: A merry crew, with loud halloo. We climbed our painted bark : We sailed her through the four years ' cruise, We ' ll sail her to the last, Our dear old flag, though but a rag. Still flying on her mast. — Oliver Wendell Holmes.

He came to the Col- lege after graduating from the Lufkin High School. He at once proved to be an earnest student and an up- standing, manly man. On the football field he ex- emplified the best ideals of true sportsmanship. Sammie Walker was clean in speech and in habits. He was diligent in practice and always worked for the success of the team. He had already won his letter, the highest athletic honor the College gives. But more important was his attitude as a col- lege student. His class work was entirely satis- factory, and his influence in the student-body was thoroughly wholesome. His outlook on life was sane; his prospects for fu- ture success were bright. He was a clean and healthy-minded Christian gentleman. In this hour of our sorrow, we are hoping that we shall have the courage to emulate his many manly virtues. Page 105 Page 106 SUB-COLLEGE CLASS OFFICERS Ollie Grimes Otha McCall Paul Koonce..

The school is glad to know that she plans to continue to be with us. Tasca Blount Most Popular Girl It is not every fifth grade boy that has the love of every pupil and teacher. Since Gerald came here last year in the fourth grade, he has won the confidence and af- fection of everyone. His interesting per- sonality, good scholarship, and clean sportsmanship made him easily the school favorite. Gerald will make a record of which the Demonstration School will be very proud. Gerald Millard Most Popular Boy Page i}o ATHLETICS Bob Shelton, Coach In the three years that Coach Shelton has been at S. F. A., he has built up a record that enabled the College to enter the Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association without going on probation. This is something no other college has ever done in the history of the T. I. A. A., and S. F. A. could not have done it if the other coaches had not known that Coach Shelton puts out clean, strong athletic teams. W. W. DOSSEY, Assistant Coach J. H. HlNDS. Track Coach Mr. Dossey came to S. F. A. from the Nacogdoches High School, where his work had proved his ability as a coach. As line coach, Mr. Dossey did very valuable service for the football team. He is also a good basketball and base- ball coach and has done good work in both sports. He is the kind of man who commands the respect of everybody. Mr. Hinds has had several years of experience as a track coach. " Jimmie, " as we call him, knows his stuff. He has that " you can ' t get beat if you won ' t get beat " spirit.

Captain-Elect Fullback Halfback THE SEASON Rice 3 3 — Lumberjacks The first game of the season, only a few days after the opening of school, was with Rice, a member of the Southwestern Conference. Some of the men had been out only a few days and were not in condition. The Owls made four touchdowns in the first half, two coming as a result of fumbles on account of the muddy field. The Lumberjacks held the Owls to a lone touchdown in the second half, again the result of a costly fumble. For the Lumberjacks, Parker. Alders, and Sharpe stood out in the line; while the work of Sam Davis and White and the punting of Sam Walker were the high lights of the backfield. Hcrting was the Owls ' big gun. Bobcats 12 — Lumberjacks o In the second game the Lumberjack s were again defeated. Several times the Lumberjacks worked the ball to the twenty-yard line only to be held for downs. A place-kick from the twenty-yard line, which was unsuccessful, was our strongest bid to score. The Bobcats scored twice. McCall and Darby for the Bobcats, and Ben Tucker for the Lumberjacks were the most outstanding players. Page 129 James Parker, Captain-Elect Herman Alders Tackle Guard Low Morris — Lumberjacks Rain and mud were too great a handicap, and the Lumberjacks were unable to score on the Lon Morris Bobcats. The Lumberjacks repeatedly plunged the line for good gains, carrying the ball io the onc- vard line when the hall ended. In the third quarter a place-kick went wide, and the game ended scoreless. The Lumberjacks made seventeen first downs to one for Lon Morris. Denton 10 — Lumberjacks In the game with Denton the Lumberjacks upset the dope, and Denton, rated as a thirty- point better team, was lucky to get a 10-0 victory. Denton, in the second quarter, fell on a fumble and scored three on a place-kick. Their touchdown came in the last quarter on a pass. Although the Lumberjacks outfought the Eagles the entire game, once carrying the ball to the five- yard line, they were unable to score. Sam Davis played a great game at fullback: Ray, too, was right, outpunting his man and outcharging every man on the Lagle team. Vernoy Burke Halfback Lee Comer End Marshall College — Lumberjacks 27 Against Marshall the Lumberjacks chalked up their first victory of the season. Though again playing on a wet field, they were not to be denied, and by great running and passing smothered the Marshall team. Sam Davis again stood out with his line plunging and defensive work. Martine opened up with some great end runs, and Choc ' s passing was accurate and consistent. Sam Walker ' s punting and Ben Tucker ' s defensive work were other bright points of the game. Rusk — Lumberjacks 6 Again it was a case of too much mud, and the Rusk College Indians held the Lumberjacks to one touchdown. Passing was impossible and end runs almost so because of the slippery field. Lafayette Stopped at the Line Page 131 Sam Frizzell End Kyle Putnam Tackle Martinc and White as line plungers looked good on offense; while the work of Da ' is and Tucker in breaking up passes held Rusk in check. Natchitoches 6 — Lumberjacks 7 This is one of the times when the best team wo n. The confident Louisianians had not figured on fight and a comeback, but they learned. The whole team was " right " and played great football to beat our out-of-the-state rivals. Natchitoches took an early lead in the first quarter by marching down the field for a touch- down on the kickoff. But in the second quarter by a series of passes the Lumberjacks carried the ball over, and Summers kicked goal. During the remainder of the game, the Louisiana teachers tried desperately to score but could not. Lafayette Again Hits a Wall Page 132 W. M.

Lafayette 2 7 — Lumberjacks 6 After winning three games in a row, the Lumberjacks dropped the next to Southwestern Institute at Lafayette. Louisiana. The Lafayette team ' s offense was built around the passing and running of Cagle, and it was too strong a foundation for the Lumberjacks. " We managed to score ' ' is about all that can be said. There are no stars for the Lumberjacks unless Doc Ray receives mention for leading the charge.

Davis and Putnam featured. South Park — Lumberjacks Mud again cheated us of a victory. Both teams did their best to win the Thanksgiving game, but neither could push over a single point. Early in the game Beaumont barely missed a field goal. After this most of the game was played in midfield. with neither team having an advantage.

RESUME Most of the old men were back this year, but the 1926 season was not as successful for the Lumberjacks as was expected. They were able to win only two out of eight T. I A. A. games. Of the T. I. A. A. games that were lost, however, two were with the champions of the Association, and the others were with two of the strongest teams in the T. I. A. A. The Rusk Games The Lumberjacks opened the basketball season of 1 926 by beating the Rusk College Indians 33-11 on the home court. The passing and defense of the Lumberjacks was fast and steady. Captain Bradley was high point man with eleven points. Parker and Samford were close seconds with eight and six points respectively. The next night the Lumberjacks again routed the Indians, winning the game by the score of 24-8. Lumberjacks Lose to Bearcats Due to inability to hit the basket, the Lumberjacks lost two hard fought games to the Sam Houston Bearcats. The floor work and passing of the Lumberjacks was much faster than that of Huntsville. but poor goal shooting lost the game. Parker and Pannell scored six points each the first night. The game ended 3 2-20 in favor of the Bearcats. Sam Houston repeated the victory the following night but was held to a smaller margin. Bradley and Samford. Lumberjack forwards, were again off form, and the Bearcats chalked up another victory, 27-20. I i Sam Davis Guard i Sam Frizzell Forward Lumberjacks Take Two From Commerce In two of the most interesting and thrilling games of the season the Lumberjacks defeated the Commerce Lions. The guarding and offense of the Lumberjacks was perfect, and Com- merce never threatened seriously. By perfect team work and consistent goal shooting the Lumberjacks piled up a 25-15 score. The Lions came back strong th e second night, and the game was a toss-up from the begin- ning. The score at the end of the half was 15-14 for the Lumberjacks and tied at 21 near the end of the game. Pannell rang up a field goal for the Lumberjacks, which bettered the Lions ' free throw one point. The game ended 21 22 alter a Commerce player missed a free attempt. The work of the entire team was brilliant, though the guarding of Sam Davis and Pannell ' s goal shooting stood out. Lumberjacks Beaten by Eagles The champion Eagles were forced to the limit to win two games from the Lumberjacks, but wonderful goal shooting turned the trick. Both games were exceedingly rough, a large percent of the Eagles ' scores resulting from free throws. In the first game the half ended 16-12 for the Eagles, but by the end of the; game they had run up the score to 35-21. The second game was a fight from the beginning. Early in the game the Lumberjacks grabbed an eight-point lead, and it looked like our game. But the Eagles again started their great passing and goal shooting, and at the end of the half, were several points ahead. In the last half Parker. Joe Davis, and Sam Davis were put out on fouls, and the Eagles managed to gain a 2 3-18 victory. Joe Davis and White played great basketball in the two games, outshining the brilliant Hayes. Bent Pannell James Parker Forward Guard The Marshall Games The Lumberjacks took two fast games from the College of Marshall quintet by good team work. Although weak in goal shooting, the Marshall team had a fast and steady defense, and only good passing and shooting by the Lumberjacks overcame it. The visitors played hard, fast games though thev were hopelessly outclassed. The Lumberjacks won the first game 4 5 to 15. and the second 39 to 13. The Natchitoches Games The Lumberjacks went to Natchitoches and lost two games to the Louisiana Normal five. The team was one of the best encountered during the season. Both of these games were somewhat one-sided so far as scores go. Captain Bradley was the king pin of the Lum- berjacks ' offense, scoring 1 3 points in the first game and ten points in the second. Sam Davis and Parker also played good ball for the Lumberjacks, especially on defense. Page iy Fritz Thompson Guard BiiN Tucker Center Daniel Baker Defeats lumberjacks In the final games of the season the goal shooting jinx was again present, and the Lumber- jacks dropped their last two games. Bradley, Sam Davis, and Joe Davis were handicapped by sore arms, and this slowed them up both on offense and on defense. Both teams were off in their shooting, repeatedly missing crip shots. The majority of the points were made by long shots. Bradley tried again and again to find the loop, but he had hard luck in both games, repeatedly missing easy shots.

Out of four- teen intercollegiate games, only two were lost. In most cases the Lumberjacks won easily. With five lcttermen of last season, nine old men, and several experienced new men, the team struck its stride early and developed rapidly. Much of the credit for the large number of victories was due to the pitching of Joe Davis. Joe won every start of the season, and on several occasions, as a relief hurler, saved the game. D. M. Walker, star pitcher of 1 9 24, though hampered all season by a bad shoulder, managed to hang up several victories. The hitting of Prince. Sam Davis. Everett Walker. Conner, and Thompson was a big factor in winning such a large percent of the games. The Rusk Games. 13-1 and 6-4 The Lumberjacks opened the season with two games against Rusk College. Behind thz great pitching of ' Joe Davis, the first game was annexed by the Lumberjacks 13 to 1. Rain stopped the second game, with the Lumberjacks on the big end of a 6-4 score. Lumberjacks at Natchitoches, 9-8 and 8-4 With several members of the squad in poor condition the Lumberjacks went to Natchi- toches and won both games of the series. Walker pitched good ball in the first game; but Page 142 N. " Choc " Thompson Third Base Eura Bates Center Field owing to several errors and bunched hits he was forced to give way to Joe Davis in the eighth. The final score was 9 to 8. The pitching of Davis gave the Lumberjacks a victory the second day with a score of 8 to 4. Lumberjacks Win from Bearcats, 3-2 and 12-6 In the first of a two game series on the home field the Lumberjacks nosed out the Sam Houston Bearcats by the close score of 3-2. Joe Davis was the winning pitcher in this game. In a heavy hitting affair the Lumberjacks took the second game 1 2-6, with D. M. Walker pitching. Every one of the Lumberjacks did good hitting in this game. Lee Conner Right Field i A( I m 4 HA Joe Davis Pitcher Page 143 Sam Davis First Base Sam Frizzell Short Lumberjacks Versus Bobcats, 3-2 and 5-7 In the first game Joe Davis and Darby staged a pitching duel which came near being a draw, but the Lumberjacks pushed a man across in the last part of the ninth to a win, 3-2. Aided by two home runs, the Bobcats took the second game, 7-5. They were forced to use three pitchers in this game. Lumberjacks Win at Huntsvii le, 2-0 and 1 1 - 7 The timely hitting of Sam Davis and the pitching of Joe Davis were responsible for the 2-0 win in the first game of the second series with the Bearcats. Seventeen hits and the relief hurling of Davis were too much for the Bearcats, and they dropped the second game to the Lumberjacks. 11-7. Earl Medford Pitcher Page 144 Howard Prince Eugene Sanders Left Field Short S. F. A. vs. Dallas University. 7-6 and 5-9. The first game with Dallas University was a hotly contested one, and it took all the Lum- berjacks had to win. However, with the good pitching of Joe Davis they were able to come out ahead. The Lumberjacks held the lead in the second game until the eighth inning. The Dallas team rallied in the eighth and scored six runs. Walker had been pitching air-tight ball up to this time when two bases on balls and three hits were good for the six runs. Two more scores were added in the ninth, and the Lumberjacks lost the game. 9-5. Hollis Thomas Second Base Page 145 The Games With South Park. 16-2 and 27-5 In the final games of the season, featured by the slugging of the Lumberjacks, South Park was defeated by large scores. The Lumberjacks hit everything the visitors had to offer. D. M. Walker and Hudson each slipped one over the fence for a homer, and Joe Davis, Conner, and Prince did some good hitting. The second game was a pretty good imitation of a track meet, with the Lumberjacks winning all the first places. They clouted the ball for a 27 to 5 victory.

RESUME OF 1925 SEASON The record made in track was very good considering the size of the squad and the fact that several members were handicapped by injuries. A good show- ing was made in the Rice Relays: and in meets with Sam Houston and San Marcos, the older institutions were crowded closely. Garner, Bailey, and Parker defeated some of the best track performers in the T. I. A. A. Prospects for the 1926 season are very good. Ray, the captain of the 1924 team, is back; and Neel, Sam Davis, Parker, and Claunch are the other old men who will be in the squad. Burk, a letterman from Nacogdoches, in the dashes, and Miller, Todd and Shoultz in the distances are making strong bids for places. Page 148 E. L. Bailey Henry Blackwell THE RICE RELAYS With only a small squad of men the Lumberjacks went to the Rice Relays and brought back one second place. This meet, an athletic carnival of na- tional recognition, brings together some of the best colleges and universities in the United States. In the medley relay, a Lumberjack team composed of E. L. Bailey, Roy Self, Henry Blackwell, and Tom Lattimer won second place and the gold medals offered for the event. A team also entered the mile relay but Wilbur Fouts Page 149 Tom Lattimer Roy Self failed to place. Garner in the high jump, Neal in the dashes, and Parker in the shot put gave a good account of themselves but failed to place in their events. THE DUAL MEET AT HUNTSVILLE In the dual meet at Huntsville the Lumberjacks encountered their first T. I. A. A. competition. The squad won the greater number of the first places, but lost the meet by eleven points, due to Sam Houston ' s many second and third places. Sam Davis won first place in the javelin and discus throws. Parker won first place in the shot put. Garner took first place in the high jump and pole vault, and Neal won first place in the 100-yard dash. Bailey won first in the quarter and in the half but was disqualified, and Claunch, who was next to Bailey, got first in the quarter. He also got third place in the half mile run. The Lumberjacks won seven first places out of twelve. The Meet at Nacogdoches In a triangular meet with Sam Houston and San Marcos the Lumberjacks took last place with only six points between them and Sam Houston in second place. San Marcos with a veteran squad won an easy first place, but the strug- gle for second place was undecided until the last event. In the pole vault Parker tied for first place with Dailey of San Marcos, one of the best vaulters in the T. I. A. A. Both missed at twelve feet. Parker won first place in the shot put. while Bailey outran San Marcos ' unbeaten entry in the half mile and won first place. Top Roll ' : Laura Boall. Rosalie Biggio. Bessie Mae Clark.

Ferguson... ..Sponsor The Thomas J. Rusk Literary Society, having grown from the previous year ' s enrollment of twenty-nine members to the present enrollment of forty members, has contributed its full share to every endeavor attempted to make the young men of the College more fit for leadership in literary affairs. Under the leadership of Mr. T. E. Ferguson, to whom the Society is glad to acknowledge its indebtedness, the Thomas J. Rusk Literary Society began its work early in the fall term. The members were enthusiastic and interested in the Society from the very start last fall. Perhaps the most beneficial work undertaken was a series of drills in Parliamentary Law from which every mem- ber of the organization derived much benefit. Most important of all, however, is the part the Society has played in pro- moting intercollegiate friendship, all of which has been brought about through the Society ' s interest in oratory and debate. The Society is sponsoring three debating teams — the first in the history of the college — who will compete with Louisiana College, the North Texas State Teachers College, and the East Texas State Teachers College.
