In that inevitable future the pleasure we derive from the perusal of these pages will become greater as we are by the hand of Father Time drawn farther and farther away from the scenes of activities. Memories of the disappointments, trials, and tribulations will grow dimmer, while the remembrances of our pleasures will ever loom longer and more pleasant. Advice that we now scorn will be used as a gigantic rudder, guiding our ship of life through uncharted seas. This book will be as a beautiful monument erected in honor of that period in which we were laying the foundation for our future. The Staff.

President ARMINTA ROACH_._ Secretary -Treasurer FLOY PiNKERTON... - Sergeant-at-Arms Virginia Broadfoot__ —Sponsor The peppiest club in school was organized in the Fall of 1927 for the purpose of promoting school pep and supporting the college athletic teams. Although it is true that the Lumber- jackettes is a sister organization to the W. A. A., their work does not stop with supporting athletics, but extends into any field in which they may best serve the college. Page 120 ATH LETICS Mr. Shelton is ever working for the betterment of athletics, not only in our own school, but in the Conference as well. The school is young, but his able coaching has placed his teams among the strongest in the Conference. His specialty seems to be winning championships in baseball, for he has done this on more than one occasion. As a lover of sports and a true gentleman, Mr. Shelton is known and loved by the whole student body. Mr. Dossey ' s able assistance in football, basket ball and baseball is manifested in his ability to impart the fine points and the details of individual procedure in the games with which he is connected. A splendid personality, a thorough knowledge of the game, and the ability to get things over are his assets. Coach Hinds is very adept at many things, and putting out winning track teams is no exception. The results he has obtained with the available material prove his ability as a track and field coach. Coach Hinds is a man of high ideals and is able to instill in the minds of athletes the idea of fair play and clean living. Shelton Dossey Hinds Page 121 Yell Leaders When the sounding whistle at the first football game called the Lumber- jacks into action, it also marked the beginning of a year of great service for our able yell leaders. " Andy " Smith and Rosamae Tucker. The crowd swayed with their leading, and the pep did not lag for a minute. This is the second year that Andy has led the cheering section for S. F. A., and his leadership has been a great factor in the development of our college spirit. Few leaders can sway the crowd as he does, and few indeed possess such love and loyalty to their team. Although this is her first year in college, Rosamae was a valuable addition to the pep forces of the college. As assistant yell leader, she proved her ability in leadership.

Captain-elect Review of Season When the difficulty of the schedule followed during the past season is considered, together with the injuries to the team, the record made by the Lumberjacks is far from a poor one. In T. I. A. A. contests the ' Jacks won one, tied two, and lost three. The remaining games were non- conference scraps in which the Lumberjacks won one and lost three. GAME RESULTS Lon Morris S. F.

The Lum- berjacks made long gains, but costly fumbles prevented their crossing the goal line. The ' Jacks made nine first downs while Lon Morris made only four. The fact that the ' Jacks were not in the best of condition probably accounts for the final score. Saturday. October 1. on Birdwell Field, the Lumberjacks took the small end of a 14-0 score in a hectic game with the San Marcos Bobcats. The Lumberjacks, even though beaten, put up a fighting defense that was worthy of all the fighting teams of the past. Honorable mention might be given Burk, Davis, and Stone for the excellent way in which they fought. Vance was outstand- ing star for the Bobcats. EDWIN SHARP. Captain-elect Earl Adams.

Austin when he ran 71 yards for the first touchdown. Smelley, Tucker, Davis, and Martine also gave a good account of themselves. Playing again on home territory, the ' Jacks met the McMurry eleven in a scoreless game on October 22. Burk was the chief ground-gainer for the Lumberjacks. The Indians, being unable to gain through the line, tried many passes, but completed only one. Tucker. Lumberjack center, was instrumental in breaking up the overhead attack. Howard played a stellar role in stopping every thrust of the opposition before retiring from the game with an injured knee. On Saturday, October 29, the Lumberjacks journeyed to Rusk with a crippled line-up and Pete MCKENZIE, Halfback L. MARTINI:.

The Lumberjacks, already weakened by the absence of eight first line men, suffered further loss in the offensive players when Burk, quarterback, was removed from the game after - being injured. The first touchdown was the result of a fumble on the thirty-yard line, while the second was made on an intercepted pass. The teams tied in first downs with eight each. Playing on foreign soil again on November 4, the Lumberjacks lost to the Demons of Natchi- toches, Louisiana. The Demons pushed the ball across for a marker early in the first quarter, but were held steadily thereafter by the fighting Lum- berjacks.

The Lumberjacks journeyed to the Alamo City and encountered stiff opposition from the Rattlesnakes in the form of a 19-0 defeat on Armistice Day. The Lumberjacks met unex- pected opposition in this battle, the Rattlesnakes flashing some brilliant offensive work to pile up 19 points. Many of the Lumberjack stars remained at home nursing old injuries and this considerably weakened their line-up. Despite this handicap, the Lumberjacks presented some good offensive tactics, but lacked sufficient punch to push the ball across, and the game ended with a 19-0 victory for the Rattlesnakes. On November 17 the Lumberjacks entrained for West Texas to battle the Canyon Buffaloes, and were forced to return with the small end of BUEL SlTTON. Guard Leonard S.melley.

In the second half the Lumberjacks came back strong and made one touchdown and were well on their way to another when they lost the ball on an unlucky fumble. Captain Conner and Sam Davis were the outstanding players for Stephen F. Austin. Playing before the largest crowd ever assembled on Birdwell Field for a Thanksgiving game, the Lumberjacks, by a remarkable display of defensive football tactics, held the Bearkats from Huntsville to the low score of 6-0. The valiant efforts of every Lumberjack player were manifest in the dogged persistence at defense through every minute of play. Through the first three quarters and the greater part of the last quarter the score stood 0-0. The Bearkats were making desperate Claude Stone. Tackle Ben Tucker. Center efforts to score at every period, and it was late in the fourth quarter when a Lumberjack fumble on their twenty-yard line was recovered by the ' Kats, enabling them to score. The ball was carried over on the fourth down. During the remaining two minutes the Lumberjacks tried valiantly to register a touchdown via the air route, but to no avail. Every player who partici- pated in this game acquitted himself honorably. Special mention should be given Martine and Matkin. The play of Matkin was characterized by his fierce tackles and his ability to diagnose the opposing plays. Martine also was a tower of strength for the Lumberjacks on both defense and offense.

Coming back strong, however, the ' Jacks split with Centenary, winning one and losing one. Lumberjacks upset all dope by defeating both McMurry and Huntsville in two-game series, only to drop two to Huntsville in a return encounter. After splitting a series with Commerce, the Lumberjacks took a trip westward, having hard luck. The T. I. A. A. champs, Canyon Buffa- loes, took two games: the ' Jacks and McMurry split a series, and the Wildcats of Abilene were successful in the last two games of the season.

Review oe Season With a squad of seven letter men as a nucleus, coaches Dossey and Shelton built up a team that marched through a season of thirteen T. I. A. A. games without a defeat. These were supplemented by eight non-conference games, in which the Lumberjacks lost only one, this coming in the last of a four-game series with the State Normal team from Natchitoches, Louisiana. Probably no more outstanding aggregation of baseball stars has ever been assembled to represent a member of the Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association, and the coaches are to be commended for building and piloting the 1927 team to the goal of undefeated cham- pions. Five men from the team were chosen on the all-T. I, A. A. team. These men are as follows: E. Walker, catcher: J. Davis, pitcher: Thomp- son, third base; Pannell, center field, and Ted Moore, right field. The 1927 season was ushered in by two wins for the Lumberjacks over the Marshall College nine, by the overwhelming scores of 16-0 and 1 1-0. In the first game the twirling duty was signed wholly to first-year men. In the second game the sturdy and reliable pitcher, D. M. Walker, and Joe Davis, were assigned to the mound for short intervals, and both were very effective. The Lumberjacks slammed out a total of 10 hits in the first game and 14 in the second, while the Marshallites were collecting a total of four for the two games. The Lumberjacks out-hit the Rusk College Indians in their own back yard and won from them by the score of 11-0 on April 7. The Indians jumped into an early lead at 6-4 and held this margin for six innings. This was due to a home run by Rusk with the bases loaded. The Jacks retaliated in the later stages with a four-ply hit by Genie Sanders with the bases loaded, and a similar one by Joe Davis, with one on. The Commerce Lions opened a three-game series with the Lumberjacks on Birdwell Field, April 10. The Lumberjacks easily took the first two games, while the third was rained out. Joe Davis Captain Pitcher D. M. Walker Captain-elect Pitcher Page 139 In the first game Joe Davis starred at bat and on the mound for the Lumberjacks. Joe let the opposition down with six hits and four runs, while he himself contributed four of the twelve hits collected by his teammates. Ted Moore scored a home run. Despite the efforts of the Lions to check the onslaught, the final score was 13-4 in favor of the Jacks. The second game was another victory for the Lumberjacks, ending with a score of 6-4. Journeying to Huntsville for a two-game series on March 30 and 31. the Lumberjacks won two conference games from the Bearkats. Joe Davis, veteran pitcher, allowed the Bearkats only three hits during the first game, while his teammates scored a total of 1 3 hits and 7 runs. The feature of the game was Ted Moore with four hits out of five trips to the plate. Conner also starred with a home run. The second day found D. M. Walker pitching for the ' Jacks. The Lumberjacks seemed able to score at will, getting 1 3 hits and 1 3 runs. Thompson featured with a home run with one man aboard. The score was: Lumberjacks 13, Bearkats 2. Eugene Sanders Clyde Chisum G. E. Walker Shortstop Pitcher Catcher Puge HO The Bcarkats invaded Lumberjack territory on April 20 and 21, only to be turned back again with a double killing. The features of the first game were the consistent batting and good base running by the Lumber- jacks. The final score showed 14 runs for the ' Jacks and only four for the Bearkats. The second game was even more one-sided than the first. The ' Jacks hit to all corners of the lot almost at will. The final score was 18-1, favoring the Lumberjacks. On April 27 and 28 the Lumberjacks met and defeated the Hill Billies from Daniel Baker in two decisive conference games. There was much at stake in these games, for the Hill Billies were champions the previous year, and the Lumberjacks fought hard. The first game ended with a score of 19-2 in favor of the Lumberjacks. The last two games also fell to the ' Jacks, though with smaller scores. The Lumberjacks suffered their only defeat of the season in a non- conference game with the Louisiana Demons of Natchitoches. After gaining 1 6 consecutive victories, the record was marred by this single defeat. I " Sam Davis First Base Bent Pannell Center Field Lee Conner Left Field Page HI Lumberjacks Clinch T. I. A. A. Championship! On Friday. May 13, the McMurry College Indians and S. F. A. Lumberjacks met on Birdwell Field in the first of a four-game series, to decide the championship of the conference. Joe Davis was on the mound for the ' Jacks and West for the Indians. The Indians scored first in the second inning, but the ' Jacks came back in the third to score two runs and take the lead. Again in the seventh inning the Indians forged ahead and held this lead until the final inning, when the ' Jacks scored two runs to win the game with a score of 5-4. The Lumberjacks got eight hits to the Indians ' five. Playing the second of the series on Saturday, May 21, the Lumber- jacks staged a hitting bee at the expense of two Indian twirlers, and won as D. M. Walker hurled superb ball. Ted Moore featured with a home run. The final score was 15-2 with the Indians trailing. In the last two games of the series and of the season, the Indians fought hard to win over the Lumberjacks, but were never successful. The games were won by the ' Jacks with scores of 7-0 and 7-3.

Reeves The season opened with early training in the form of cross-country. This pre-season training gave the ' Jacks a good start, and in the first dual meet with the Bearkats they were able to hold their own. Outstanding men of this meet were McLain, Reeves, and Bailey. In the triangular meet at Natchitoches, the ' Jacks defeated the Louisiana boys, but were nosed by the ' Kats. Blackwell, Wise, and Ray showed up well for the ' Jacks. On a later trip to Hunts- ville. the Lumberjacks took first place in the dashes, high and low hurdles, high jump, broad jump, and half-mile. In the dual meet with Austin College, " Bill " Todd was outstanding for the ' Jacks. He took first place in the mile and two mile and came back to run a lap in the relay to be high-point man. In the T. I. A. A. meet at Denton the tennis stars gave a good account of themselves: Bailey took third place in the high jump, and the relay team finished fourth. RACK SQUAD Page 1U NACOGDOCHES.

Phone 180 Office Phone 279 Nacogdoches, Texas SHOWING THE WAY TO A GREATER TEXAS Out of the great undeveloped Southwest has come TEXAS — born of a pioneer spirit — a great industrial state built within this agricultural domain. Throughout its vast length and breadth, industry is crowding agriculture for leadership. This new wide-spread activity is largely possible because electric power facilities of the Texas Power Light Company reach over a section larger than all New England. The Texas Power Light Company, Texas ' pioneer in electric power transmission lines, not only supplies today ' s needs, but has built plants and transmission systems to accommodate demands of the immediate future. Gins, oil mills, flour mills, textile mills, clothing factories and a hundred other industries utilize the ample supply of electric power. The small town can offer that same advantage even as the largest city. Large, centrally located and interconnected generating stations have replaced the community plant. Any of 230 towns served by Texas Power Light Company can double its requirement for electric power and find it ready. Small towns are no longer handicapped by the 15-years-ago inability to offer power for prospective industries, when limited local plants were able to supply only the domestic lighting need.
