TATE teachers . COLLEGE Nacogdoches, Tro f,. COPYRIGHT l©27 DREWORD This book will be to us in after years a book of yesterdays. Its pages then will hold much more of happiness and joy than we can ever dream. The smiles and laughter of our college days will yet be with us when we turn its musty pages. The gay old times will rise from out the mist of what has bee n, and through the twilight of our later years will come the dreams and memories of youth. Our hearts will throb again in unison to tunes forever kept alive by those who come in after years to take our places. Our hands will clasp again, in memory, the hands of friends who knew and understood, and we shall come to know that hours of work and disappointment were not in vain, that ideals builded then have moulded men and women of true worth. DEDICATION To Jessie Ruth Gooldy, who, without thought of self, unre- servedly gave her time, her in- fluence, and her strength to the upbuilding of our institution, we dedicate, in loving memory and lasting appreciation, this issue of THE STONE FORT -ffthv mm 1 | : ' 6i r " content; The School The Classes Athletics Activities Advertisements The historic old Stone Fort is an eloquent reminder of the sacrifices and patriotism of our Pioneer Fathers, who established here Anglo-American civili- zation 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, V ice -President Carthage Honorable J. J. Bennett Stephenville Honorable A. B. Martin .. Plainview Honorable Henry Paulus Yoakum Honorable A. B. Mayhew Uvalde Page 21 PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE I try to think that you arc stronger than at the beginning of the year — stronger in body, in mind, and in heart; that you have learned the value of good health and the methods of at- taining it; that you have learned a little better the value of straight thinking and, therefore, the real purpose of the discip- line of study; that you have been inspired by the achievements of the past, and are. therefore, developing a worthy ambition: that you have acquired a more profound love for the best in lit- erature and art; and that, as a result of it all, you will attain, as the years come and go, to a fruitful and joyous life. A. W. BlRDWELL. Thomas E. Ferguson Dean of the Faculty Mr. T. E. Ferguson is well known to every student on the campus. He is as necessary to both students and faculty as is the classroom routine itself, and because of his necessity, it is something to find him at registration time. His genial smile and pleasant face have encouraged many downhearted stragglers, and his open friendliness has won countless admirers. Page 2 4 C. E. Ferguson Dean of Students Mr. C. E. Ferguson has endeared himself to the student body by his kindly disposition. His attitude has ever been one of sympathetic understanding and unfailing helpfulness, and in him each individual has found a friend and an ad- viser. His personality has popularized even Math! Page 2 5 Miss Ruth Mays Dean of Women Miss Mays is filling one of the most talked of positions, that of Dean of Women, with apparent ease and seemingly little difficulty, though there may be a perplexed wrinkle in her brow on some occasions. Through kindness and a tender solicitude for the girls who come under her care, she has found a place in the hearts of the young ladies of the institution. Page 26 HARMON LOWMAN, M. A.

Sponsor The Senior Class of 1927, upon cogitating what to leave as a gift to the school, decided that nothing else would be so lasting and would serve the fu- ture generations so much as a loan fund for students, in memory of Miss Jessie Ruth Gooldy. Donations were made by members of the faculty, members of the student-body, ex-students, and others. A would-be tradition was instituted by the class of 1927, — the Freshman Frolic, to be given annually by the Seniors sometime in the first month of the fall term of the college year.

Among the Freshman enrollment of two hundred and fifty-six, which is the largest of any Freshman Class in the history of the college, many out- standing students are featured in various activities. Among the Freshmen who took part in debating were Baker James Cauthen and George Deal. The class was also represented in athletics. Leonard J. Smelley, our class president, played on the football and basketball teams, and Ted Moore was a forward on the basketball team. Among the girls of high standing in this field were Pauline Whitehead, reporter of the W. A. A., Evelyn Cade, business manager of the Freshman basketball team, and Helen Brown. Other Freshman repre- sentatives in college activity were Paul Koonce, Curtis Wallace, Leonard Buck- ner, Curtis Smith, John R. Stewart and Alvin Wylie, the Freshman band boys.

At that time there were only two regularly employed members of the Training School faculty: Miss Hazel Floyd, supervisor; Miss Grace Bailoy. critic teacher. Two new grades have been added each year and by next year the high school will be complete. This year the school moved into its permanent home in the Thomas J. Rusk building. The added laboratory equipment, gymnasium and playground fa- cilities, and children ' s library have helped to make a full and complete school life for every child. The Training School has served as a practice field for college students, and as a testing field for the college faculty. Their high standards of scholarship have been incorporated in the aims and ideals of the Demonstration School. DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL FAVORITES Anne Wortham has been selected by the Demonstration School as its favorite girl. She went to Mrs. Marshall ' s kin- dergarten for three years but has been a student of the Demonstration School for two years. Anne is a favorite because of her friendliness on the playground and elsewhere. She can always be depended upon to help with any of the School ac- tivities. She has been prominent in Dra- matics and Folk Dancing this year. The fifth grade is proud that Anne belongs to their group. Anne Wortham Most Popular Girl The Demonstration School was very glad when George Barham won the posi- tion as favorite, because he is one of its most loyal and steadfast members. George entered the Demonstration School last year in the sixth grade, and his work in the seventh grade has shown that he has the qualities of leadership. He has had a prominent part in athletics, being fullback on the football team, captain and forward on the basketball team, and pitcher on the baseball team. George Barham Most Popular Boy AT LETICS Bob Shelton, Coach Stephen F. Austin College had not existed four years when it was accepted as a member college in the T. I. A. A. This achievement is largely attributed to the all-round athlete and coach, Bob Shelton. Athletics has grown at S. F. A. year by year under the guiding hand of Coach Shelton. until now the sturdy Lumberjack teams are regarded as strong contenders in every branch of athletics. Coach Shelton is a friend to his men both on and off the field. He is calm and deliberate in dealing with men and has originality in his methods. Needless to tay, he gets results. His men are always fighting to the last, re- gardless of how the game is going. His motto is: " You cannot be beaten if you will not be beaten. " Coach Shelton is a sterling good fellow and holds the respect not only of every athlete, but of the entire school. W. W. DOSSEY Assistant Coach J. H. Hinds ' i rack Coach Mr. Dossey is assistant coach in football, basket ball, and baseball. He is a lover of the games and a tireless worker for the betterment of athletics. One of his outstanding characteristics is his systematic way of doing things. He knows athletics from the player ' s point of view and is a gentleman both on and off the field. For four years Coach Hinds has labored to build up a strong track squad, and although he has been handicapped of a limited number of men from which to choose, new laurels are won year after year. Coach Hinds is one of those fellows who naturally instills into his men that " do or die " spirit. Above all else, Coach Hinds stands for clean athletics and clean living, which to him is part of an educational institution. Our coach commands the entire respect of every athlete who knows him. The 1926 Lumberjacks REVIEW OF THE SEASON The past season was one of the most successful seasons that the Lumberjacks have yet enjoyed in football. Out of ten games played, five were won and five were lost. From the total number of points scored in the games of the season, we find that the Lumberjacks piled up a total of two hinidi .d eight, while her opponents scored one hundred nineteen points. Out of the ten games played, four were with members of the T. I. A. A. RECORD September 25, at Houston ._ __S. F. A. October 2. at San Marcos — S. F. A. October 9, at Nacogdoches _.S. F. A.

Although the Lumberjacks were defeated 25 to 0, Coaches Shelton and Dossey were well pleased with the showing our men made against the strong Southwestern Conference eleven. LUMBERJACKS LOSE TO SAN MARCOS BOBCATS The Lumberjacks lost their T. I. A. A. game to the San Marcos Bobcats in a hard fought affair on Evans Field at San Marcos. Although they held the Bobcats to a single touchdown and extra point, the Lumberjacks were never able to push the ball across, and the game ended 7 to 0. LUMBERJACKS DEFEAT MARSHALL COLLEGE BY A SCORE OF 108 TO The Lumberjacks iwamped the Marshall College Indians with a score of 108 to 0. the largest score ever run up on Birdwell Field. It was the Lumber- jacks ' first appearance on the home field for the season. Gain after gain was Buel Sitton Ben Tucker Guard Center made through the Marshall line or around end, and a total of seventeen touch- downs was made before the final whistle blew, and the one-sided affair was ended. LUMBERJACKS LOSE TO DENTON EAGLES 9 TO 6 In a hard fought game on Birdwell Field, the Denton Eagles nosed out the Lumberjacks by the score of 9 to 6. The only Eagle touchdown followed a penalty, and the other score came after the ball was placed on the Lumberjacks ' own two-yard line following a fifteen-yard penalty. The Lumberjacks proved to be the best ground gainers in this game, making eight first downs to Den- ton ' s three. LUMBERJACKS DEFEAT COMMERCE LIONS 14 TO Outplaying their opponents in every department, the Lumberjacks adminis- tered a 1 4 to defeat to the Commerce Lions. Every man on the team ac- quitted himself honorably and well. White ' s generalship of the Lumberjack Edwin Sharpe Center Herman Alders End team was a factor in the victory, while the Lumberjack backfield. composed of Martine, Tom Bridges, and Smelley, was able to tear through the Commerce line time and again for long gains. The Lumberjack line functioned well, stopping every thrust of the enemy, and opening holes for their own men to go through. LUMBERJACKS DEFEAT RUSK INDIANS 1 3 TO 7 In a game replete with thrills and sensational football the Lumberjacks de- feated the Rusk College Indians at Birdwell Field. The Indians presented a somewhat baffling air attack, while the Lumberjacks held to line plays, in which they excelled their opponents. Sam Davis Tackle Ollie Grimes Guard LUMBERJACKS DEFEAT LOUISIANA STATE TEACHERS 28 TO On Saturday, November 6, at the Shreveport Stadium, the Lumberjacks met and administered a severe defeat to the Demons from Nachitoches, Louisiana. The offensive, as well as the defensive power of the Lumberjack machine was manifested in this game. The Lumberjacks made four touchdowns and twenty- four first downs. The Lumberjack line held like a stone wall on the defense, and on the offense large holes were opened for our backfield to go through. The terrific tackling of the Lumberjack squad proved costly to the Louisiana Teach- ers, and many of their players were forced to retire from action. The final score was: Lumberjacks 28, Louisiana Teachers 0. Leonard Shelley Halfback Vernoy Burk End LUMBERJACKS LOSE TO SOUTHWESTERN INSTITUTE AT LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANA On November 1 1 the Lumberjacks, playing on foreign soil, lost to South- western Institute by the score of 3 3 to 0. A general run of hard luck on the part of the Lumberjacks, in so far as fumbles and intercepted passes were con- cerned, was responsible in part for the overwhelming defeat. LUMBERJACKS BEAT LON MORRIS BEARCATS 39 TO In a very spectacular game on Birdwell Field, the Lumberjacks humbled the Bearcats from Lon Morris College with a 39 to defat. ide only five first downs, while playing mostly in their end of t berjacks made a total of six touchdowns for thirty-nine po cats were never able to get beyond the Lumberjacks ' thirty Millard Matkin GuSrd Page 13 9 Kyle Putnam Lee Conner Tackle End LUMBERJACKS LOSE TO HUNTSVILLE BEARCATS On Thanksgiving day the Lumberjacks, playing at Huntsville, lost to the Bearcats. The game was played on a wind-swept field and without the services of some real Lumberjack stars. Leo White, regular quarterback and out of the game due to injuries received in a previous game, was sadly mir.scd. Most of the scoring of the Bearcats came as a result of the Lumberjacks ' Inability to punt into the high wind that swept the length of the field. The ability of the Bear- cats to make low, quick punts enabled them to punt the ball far down into the Lumberjack territory after the first kickoff. As soon as they got the wind at their backs, they were able then to receive the return punt only a few feet behind the line of scrimmage and to march to a touchdown. When the final whistle blew, the Lumberjacks were carrying the small end of a 38 to score. 19 27 Basketball Squad REVIEW OF THE SEASON The season of 1927 was one of the most disappointing in the h story of S. F. A. basketball. Out of a schedule of twenty games the Lumberjacks won only five; of these, two were T. I. A. A. victories. This year ' s schedule, how- ever, was one of the hardest ever undertaken by a Lumberjack team. Injuries and sickness kept regulars out of the majority of games, and the lack of strong reserve material weakened the team play. RECORD Jan. 7-8 . S. F. A. 30-12 Sul Ross 3 1-24. Jan. 15 S. F.

Sam Davis Captain-Guard Bent Pannell Forward SUL ROSS WINS OPENERS The Lumberjacks opened the season with the Loboes of Sul Ross College, and the games were among the fastest and most exciting ever played in the Aikman Gymnasium. The final score was 31 to 30. The Lumberjacks jumped into an early lead and scored six points before the Loboes counted. The better conditioned Loboes came back in the last half and managed to nose out a one-point victory, when a final basket for the Lumberjacks came too late. The second game went to the Loboes by a 24 to 12 count. The Loboes took the lead at the start and were never headed. The first victory of the season was registered by the Lumberjacks over the Rusk Indians on the home court. The game was rather slow, due to the man to man defense of the Indians and the number of substitutions for the Lumberjacks. The Lumberjacks next embarked on a road trip of four days into Southwest Texas. The trip included games with the Southwest Texas Teachers and St. Mary ' s of San Antonio. The first game was fast and furious from the opening whistle, and the game finally ended 21 to 1 7 in favor of San Marcos. The second game was a rough and tumble affair which went to the Bobcats after two over-time periods. At the end of the second period the Bobcats had a lead of 35 to 30. Handicapped by a short court, the Lumberjacks dropped the first of a two- game series to the St. Mary ' s Rattlers of San Antonio. The score was St. Mary ' s, 26; Lumberjacks, 22. LUMBERJACKS WIN OVER RUSK THE FIRST ROAD TRIP Page 143 Eugene Sanders Forward Ted Moore Forward The Lumberjacks won the last game of the trip from tlx- Rattlers in an over-time p eriod. The game ended 26 to 24. In a slow and uninteresting game the Lumberjacks won over the Lon Morris Bearcats 3 2 to 18. The all-round playing of Moore was a feature of the game. Weir was also outstanding. Two games were dropped to Commerce and one to Denton. The two games at Commerce were rough and hard-fought. T he final score of the first game was 32 to 18. Weir was the high point man of the Lumberjacks with seven points. Playing the best ball of the season, the Lumberjacks played the Lions off their feet for practically the entire first half. The final count was The Lumberjacks lost a game to the champion Eagles on the Eagle court. Pannell was high point man for the Lumberjacks, while Tucker and Davis lought the Eagles every minute of the game. The Eagles finished on the long end of a 29 to 13 score. The Lumberjacks ran neck and neck with the Eagles the first quarter of the second game. The game ended Eagles, 41; Lumber- LUMBERJACKS COP FROM LON MORRIS LOSE TO COMMERCE AND DENTON 38 to 24. jacks, 17.

By fast playing and accurate goal shooting the Demons piled up a lead score of 38 to 16. LUMBERJACKS WIN OVER SAM HOUSTON The first game was an easy victory, every man on the Lumberjack squad being used. The last game was not as fast as the first, and was won by a slight margin. The Lumberjacks gradually built up a 1 9 to 14 lead. LUMBERJACKS LOSE AT HUNTSVILLE At Huntsville the Bearcats turned the tables on the Lumberjacks. The num- ber of fouls charged up against the Lumberjacks was disastrous, and the Bear- cats gained a 39 to 26 decision. The second game was rougher than the first. The final score was 3 5 to 25 in favor of the Bearcats. Several times the Lumberjacks lacked only a few points of overtaking the Bearcats but were never able to tie them. The Cats took the lead from the start and never lost it. LUMBERJACKS DROP LAST TWO GAMES Showing the effects of six hard games in a row, the Lumberjacks dropped the last two games of the season to the Abilene Christian College Wildcats in the Aikman Gymnasium. Returning from a two-game series, the Lumber- Ben Tucker E. L. Bailey Guard Center Jacks engaged the Wildcats the next night. Minus the services of Joe Davis and with the entire team sore from the previous night the Lumberjacks dropped the first game 37 to 2-i Pannell with thirteen points was largely responsible for keeping the Lumberjack score fairly even. An injury in the second half forced him from the game and crippled the offense of the Lumberjacks. The effects of hard play were even more apparent in the second game. The A. C. C. made most of their baskets by working the ball under the basket for easy crips. The Lumberjacks offered little in the way of offense, Joe Davis and Pannell being severely missed, while the defense was not much better. The final score was 47 to 15. 1927 Baseball Squad REVIEW OF 1926 SEASON The season of 1926 marked the beginning of baseball for the Lumberjacks as members of the T. L A. A. The Lumberjacks began with ten victories and not a defeat: then on a road trip to Commerce, Dallas and Denton, they were only able to break even, losing three and winning three games. Undaunted, the Lumberjacks kept fighting and managed to break even at least with every team they met, and in some instances won the series. After the final count was made, it was satisfying to note that the Lumberjacks had not only split a series of games with T. I. A. A. champions, but had won second place in the confer- ence race. The Lumberjacks played a total of twenty-one games during the entire season, and were winners in fifteen of these games, losing only six. PROSPECTS FOR THE COMING SEASON With the first game of the 1927 season not far distant, the Lumberjack squad, consisting of seven letter men of last season and a large number of re- cruits, is fast whipping into condition. It is predicted that the team winning the T. I. A. A. must beat the Lumberjacks. Sam Davis at first and Sanders at short are back again to battle for their old positions. These, together with the battery of Joe Davis and D. M. Walker, pitchers, and Everitt Walker, catcher, will compose at least the backbone of the starting line-up this year. Jce Davis. Captain Sam Davis Pitcher First Base LUMBERJACKS, 13-10; RUSK, 11-0 The season opened March 12 with the Rusk Indians. A muddy field slowed up the game and accounted for many of the runs. The second game was a list- less affair, played in almost freezing weather. LUMBERJACKS DEFEAT LON MORRIS, 6-3 The Lumberjacks won a single game from the Lon Morris Bearcats behind the pitching of Buster Jackson. Cold weathe tended to slow up the game and was the cause of many errors. LUMBERJACKS MAKE CLEAN SWEEP OF HUNTSVILLE SERIES The Lumberjack ' s made a clean sweep of the series with the Huntsville Bear- cats, getting a 11-2 victory in the first game and a 6-4 win in the second. Bus- ter Jackson was master of the situation in this game. Ted Moore Third Base Page 149 D. M. Walker Pitcher Everitt Walker Catcher Joe Davis worked for the Lumberjacks in the second conflict and proved that he had lost none of his cunning. The Lumberjacks piled up six runs, enough to take their second game. LUMBERJACKS TAKE SERIES FROM LOUISIANA TEACHERS Following the Huntsville series the Lumberjacks turned back the Demons from Nach.toches with a double win. The final score was 7-5 favoring the Lumberjacks. The second game was a pitching duel between Turpin and Jackson. It ap- peared that the game might run into extra innings, but as the eighth came round, the Lumberjacks managed to get a man aboard. Leonard Smelley Right Field Eugene Sanders Bent Pannell Shortstop Centerfold LUMBERJACKS. 14-19; MARSHALL, 4-0 The Lumberjacks annexed two more victories at the expense of the Marshall College Indians. The first game ended 14 to 4 in favor of the Lumberjacks. The second game was featured by the pitching of Joe Davis. The score was S. F. A.. 19; Marshall. 0. LUMBERJACKS, 5-1; LIONS, 1-2 The Lumberjacks won the first game from the Lions but lost the second, the first game they had lost all season. LUMBERJACKS 8-2; EAGLES, 3-7 Then the Lumberjacks moved to Denton for a two-day stay. They succeed- ed in winning the first game, but the Eagles came back in the second game and won a 7 to 2 decision over the Lumberjacks. S 4 Lee Conner Left Field Page 15 1 1 M Haskell Street Second Base LUMBERJACKS SPLIT WITH DALLAS UNIVERSITY To end up a long road trip, the Lumberjacks divided honors with Dallas University by taking the first game in easy fashion, only to lose the second by a close margin. The scores were: S. F. A.. 6-9; Dallas University, 5-10. LUMBERJACKS SPLIT WITH DANIEL BAKER On Thursday, April 22. the Lumberjacks split a doubleheader with the Hill Billies of Daniel Baker. The scores were: Lumberjacks, 6-5; Hill Billies, 1-10. THE SECOND SERIES WITH COMMERCE The rule of win one, lose one was still in force, and the Lumberjacks split the second series with the Lions. The final score of the first game was S. F. A.. 5; Lions. 6. In the second game D. M. Walker proved to be a Lion Tamer, and the Lumberjacks swamped the Lions, 13 to 3. Fourteen hits coupled with er- rors and wild pitching were responsible for the overwhelming score. LUMBERJACKS LOSE SINGLE TO HUNTSVILLE BEARCATS On May 3 the Lumberjacks dropped a single game to the Bearcats from Huntsville. It was the first time in the history of the college that the Bearcats have registered a defeat against the Lumberjacks on Birdwell Field. The final score was 7 to 3 for the Bearcats. LUMBERJACKS, 6: DALLAS UNIVERSITY, The Lumberjacks ended the season with a 6 to victory over Dallas Uni- versity. The first of a two-game series was cancelled on account of rain. Joe Davis was invincible and let the uptown crew down with four hits. The whole nine gave Joe splendid support. Clyde Chisum Pitcher f STONE FOR 1927 Track Squad THE SEASON OF 1926 With only two letter men as a nucleus, S. F. A. entered T. I. A. A. track competition for the first time. The team entered three meets, a dual meet with Sam Houston, a triangular meet with Sam Houston and Nachitoches, and the T. I. A. A. meet. Four men received letters in track for 1926, Ray, Burke, Brewer and Claunch. PROSPECTS FOR PRESENT SEASON Many old cinder path artists are back aga ' n to fight for S. F. A. Together with several new men of promise, and with increasing interest in this branch of sports, we predict many new records. With men from the Cross Country team and several letter men of last year. Coach Hinds will have a nucleus about which he expects to build a strong team. W. M. Ray Vernoy Burk The 1926 cross-country season opened with an intramural meet on Novem- ber 18. It was held to determine candidates for the varsity team. Bailey, Thomas, Shuptrine, Todd, and Greer finished in the order named. Of these only Bailey and Todd had experience in track competition while the others were new men from high school. Cross Country was a new distance to all the squad. The only meet of the season was a dual one staged at Huntsville on Thanksgiving day. Sam Houston won with twenty-nine points to twenty- six. Bailey finished second; Todd, fourth; Shuptrine, fifth; and Thomas and Greer, seventh and eighth respectively. DUAL MEET WITH SAM HOUSTON In a dual meet with the Huntsville Bearcats, the Lumberjacks, under the tu- torship of Jimmy Hinds, ran Huntsville a close second, taking seven first places and four second places, for a total of forty-seven points. Claunch, Doc Ray, Loy Brewer, Burk, White, and Parker were the high participants in this meet. Page 155 Loy Brewer MEET AT NATCHITOCHES The Lumberjack track team won over Natchitoches but lost to Sam Houston in a triangular track meet held at Natchitoches. Claunch was high point man of the meet with a first place in the 440 and places in the 100, 220, and low hurdles, besides running a lap of the relay. Brewer also won a first place in the pole vault and took second in the broad jump. Ray added more points with a first in the shot put, placed in the 440, discus, and mile relay. Parker also won third in the shot put and competed in the high jump. Guy, Shoultz, and Todd, in the distance. White in the high jump and low hurdles, and Burk and Neel in the 100 failed to place. T. I. A. A. MEET May 14 and 15 found Coach Hinds at the T. I. A. A. meet in Denton with a squad of six men. The Lumberjacks made a satisfactory showing with Brewer at pole vault. Todd at middle distance, Dock Ray at the discus, and Claunch stretching out on the 440. Doc Ray won first place in the discus and placed second in the shot. He was rated as an all T. I. A. A. calibre. UB-COLLEG ATHLETICS Zola E. Avery was the man who founded Sub-College athletics in S. F. A. The record he made in football and basketball, with available material, speaks for itself, and well proclaims his merits as a coach. In the fall of 1926 the Sub-College organized a football team with Z E. Avery as coach. Their aim was to play the high schools of this section of East Texas. In the course of the season they met such strong teams as Rusk, Timpson, Carthage, Tenaha and Center. And in every game they showed real fight with a formidable football spirit. At the end of the season these men were awarded orange sweaters with a black football across the front, bearing the letters S. F. A. Langford Rounseville Richards Treadwell Sullivan Lakey McLain Smith May White Rogers In basketball the Junior Lumberjacks made an enviable record. Out of fif- teen games played, only three were lost. Among fast teams encountered were Cushing, Lufkin, Center Henderson, Chireno, and Huntington. From the beginning of the season they put the " pep " in every game which accounts for their high percentage of victories and successful season. Lettermen : May Chism McLain Metteauer, B.

Completion of the Sophomore year is required before a candidate is eligible for election, and choice of members is made from the high- est ten per cent of each class. Members are required to have at least two free A ' s above the average of B. Mr. T. E. Ferguson sponsors the organization. INTERCOLLEGIATE DEBATERS The 1927 debating season is at hand. Only those who have found the is- sues of a problem, constructed or defended an argument against the stand of an opponent, or sat in eager suspense to hear the decision of the judges read, can know the intense satisfaction attending " the art of persuasion, beautiful and just. " Six men have been chosen to represent the college in this year ' s contests. Their brilliant past records augur well for success. An excellent line-up ruv been arranged, and we anticipate a vigorous, fair, and victorious series of de- bates. The entire program follows. Mr. W. T. Wilson and Mr. George Deal will take the affirmative against Pineville on the question: Resolved, That the United States Should Have a Uniform Marriage and Divorce Law. The re- mainder of the program consists of a triangle arrangement among the Teachers Colleges of Texas. The members of our affirmative team are Mr. Ben Golub and Mr. Baker James Cauthen; of our negative, Mr. Deward Todd and Mr. John B. Richards. They debate Commerce and Canyon City, respectively. The question for the triangle contests is: Resolved, That the County Unit System of School Administration Should Be Made Compulsory in Texas. All debates will be given in April. And whatever the outcome, we wish for each contestant the enthusiasm, keen insight, and poise that true forensic endeavor always brings. BLUE BONNET LITERARY SOCIETY Shortly after the beginning of the Fall term of ' 26, a number of Sub-College girls met and organized the Blue Bonnet Literary Society. Officers for the fol- lowing duties were elected. MAISIE MOORE President DIXIE PAGE__ Vice-President ANNETTE PENMAN . - Secretary-Treasurer OZELLA BARNES— Sergeant -at -Arms DORIS BELL- ..Reporter Committees chosen by the president agreed on the club ' s flower, motto, and colors, which in turn, were accepted by the club. FLOWER: Blue Bonnet MOTTO : Not finished but at the end of Volume I COLORS: Blue and Gold This organization adopted a definite aim for the nine months era. After careful consideration, they chose: A study of the history of East Texas, especially Nacogdoches, correlating it with literature, by the means of members being inspired to indulge in creative writing as a result of their observation, study, and discoveries. Thus far the club has proceeded favorably and expresses an enthusiastic man- ner toward further endeavors. 1927 Stock Judging Team Team : Dr. D. D. Giles Deward Todd John B. Richards Travis Curry Under the shrewd coaching of Dr. D. D. Giles, the S. F. A. Stock Judging Team brought honors from the Live Stock Show at Fort Worth. Although placing third as a team, they had in person Deward Todd the best individual judge in livestock, also the best judge of dairy cattle. No less can be said of John B. Richards who was chosen the best judge of sheep in the contest. Out of a possible 1800 points the S. F. A. team was only 23 points behind the win- ner. Curry was also a great asset to the team.

Realizing the necessity of better co-operation among the letter men for the promotion of cleaner athletics, and also for the encouragement of high class young men of the various high schools to continue through college, the " T " Association was organized in 1923 and has been in operation since that time. The organization includes letter men from every sport of athletics in S. F. A. THE KARLE WILSON DRAMATIC CLUB OFFICERS Jacqueline Blackwell___ .President PATSY BlRDWELL ._.
