TfcAAJ When in the coming clays which are inevitable, Your hearts shall long in vain for laded youth, Shall hold enshrined dear thoughts of friends inseparable Who walked with yon and sought the paths of truth ; W hen your quick, buoyant steps no more shall echo In halls from which your friends long cilice have gone, And on your brow the years have left a furrow — A sign, triumphant, — of great battles won ; If then, your palsied hand this book should open And flooding memories count the hours spent — Cement these friendships time alone has broken — Dear friends, our hearts will be content. In i ' Si vi ' i . Foreword As the Nation treasures the Events of its Youth, so we treasure these Events of our Youth that the Memories of the Future may be made more vivid by this Record of the Past. Within this Book are tucked pages from Life — Mirroring happy associations and worth- while activities of your College days. As the college has grown, so has the Stone Fort expanded to pro- vide you with a valued record — Record of eventful years. — The Editor. Dedication To the undaunted spirit of our Texas forefather, Stephen F. Austin, who laid the foundations of our great State, a State that has provided a higher education of its Youth, we gratefully enscribe this volume of The Stone Fort.

Old traditions have been strengthened, and new ones have arisen. Students, generally speaking, have been serious and thoughtful. It is confidently believed, therefore, that aspirations have been born and that ambi- tions are in process of realization. The Stone Fort comes to you as a faithful picture of the sixth year of the life of the college. In it you will find, through the passing years, many reminders of the toil and pleaures of the session of 1928-29, You will allow me, I trust, to express the hope that each student has a little better hold on the verities of life because of the year ' s work; that he has found in the great books of the library the story of the aspirations and achievements of man during his long history; that, withal, his own philosophy of life has been clarified, and that he is looking out into the futue with hope and courage. Very truly, A. W. Birdwell, President. Page - i The Deans Dean J. H. Wisely is very efficiently filling the office of Dean of Faculty during the absence of T. E. Ferguson. His time spent in teaching lends dignity to his position. We will let the old maxim, " By their works ye shall know them, " speak for Mr. Wisely. Miss Ruth Mays, a very important factor in the administration of S. F. A., has shown her intense interest in the women of the college as well as all other students by the aid which she has given toward the solution of situations con- cerning their welfare in the college. Mr. C. E. Ferguson, Dean of Men, has, through his affable nature, won the respect and admiration of the entire school. He is always willing to advise with any student in the problems which may arise. He is to be considered not only a chaperon but also an advisor and friend. Dean Wisely Dean Mays Dean Ferguson Page . 22 Administrative Officers A. W. Birdwell, M. A... President J. H. Wisely, M.

Dramatic Club Under the direction of Miss Mary J. White, the Karle Wilson Baker Dramatic Club has witnessed remarkable progress during the last year. The King ' s Henchmen , which was used as a Commencement play last year, was enjoyed by everyone who saw it, and each following presentation has been equally successful. The Dummy was perhaps the most highly enjoyed play of any offered by the club during the year. Using almost all new talent of the club Miss White developed a corps of actors and actresses that were exactly fitted for the parts. The Bells of Capistrano, another production of the club, was pre- sented at the college and at the Austin Theatre as well. The club, combining with the Little Theatre, present The Importance of Being Earnest at the Little Theatre tournament held at Houston in which contest they won honors. Page 95 IQ2.8 Intercollegiate Debaters The call for debaters in 1928 was answered by four men, and as a result only two teams were chosen. In order that these two teams might have time to properly prepare themselves and also carry on their regular academic work, the debate officials of the college scheduled only two debates for the season, one with East Texas State Teachers College at Commerce and the other with Pine- ville College of Louisiana. The question decided upon was, Resolved : That the United States cease to protect, with armed force, capital invested in foreign lands, except after a formal decoration of war. The affirmative team, composed of Roy Self and F. W. Moffet, lost to the team from Louisiana by a score of 2 to 1; the negative team, composed of C. L. Armstrong and j. B. Richards, also lost to the Commerce team bv the same score. Those students taking part in the intercollegiate debates where given credit on English courses for their work. 1 9 9 Intercollegiate Debaters The debating teams of 1929 enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in the history of the school, losing only one debate. The three teams chosen were selected from the Debaters Club and consisted of the following men: Melvin Campbell of Groveton, D. L. Walker of Nacogdoches, Gillette Tilford of Nacog- doches, C. L. Armstrong of Flint, Max Cummings of Alto, and Foard Wilson of Nacogdoches. The teams were coached by Mr. Wilson and Mr. Davis. The subje ct for the intercollegiate debate for this year was, Resolved: That a substitute for trial by jury be adopted. A team composed of three men, Arm- strong, Campbell, and Walker, met and defeated a team from Pineville, Louis- iana in the latter part of the Winter term, and the other teams were not chosen until the Spring term. Campbell and Wilson were selected to take the negative against a team at Canyon, while Tilford and Cummings took the affirmative against a team from Huntsville. We won the decision over Canyon but lost to Huntsville by a score of two to one. Campbell Til.

The Debaters Club was organized in the fall term with only a few members, but before the end of the winter term several more had been added, and one intercollegiate debate had been sponsored by the organization. Two more debates will be sponsored during the present term, and indications are that the Club will be permanent. Only part of our plans have been realized, however, and it is hoped that the future members of the Club will perpetuate the things that we have worked so hard to get started.

Joe Melton PURPOSE The Swayers were organized in the fall of ' 2 7 with the purpose of producing organized pep for all athletics events, and the promotion of general college spirit. This term marks the completion of the second successful year, and leaves no doubt in the minds of its members as to the potential strength of such an organization. The organization this year has set several precedents that its successors might do well to continue; among them the annual banquet and the trip to the Lumberjacket-Bearkat basket ball game. We hand the future Sawyers the baton with the assurance that they are on the right track with an unobstructed pathway toward a worthwhile goal. Lumber] ackettes The Lumberj ackettes were organized in the fall of 1927, with Margie Whit- tington as president and Miss Virginia Broadfoot as sponsor. This pep squad is a twin sister to the Sawyers. The two organizations cooperate in the pro- motion of college spirit and clean sports, and are outstanding in their loyalty to the school. The season of 1927 was an eventful one for the Lumberjackettes, but not nearly so much as the year 1928-29. During the past year the Club made a trip to Huntsville with the basket ball boys, and has been present at all athletic events. Too, the best All-college Dance of the year was sponsored by them. This, one of the peppiest and most representative organizations on the campus, closes a very eventful year, with Ida Farris as president and Margie Whitting- ton as sponsor. Page 107 W. A. A. The W. A. A. is the most representative organization on the campus of S. F. A., as well as the largest. This organization includes the various sports of the Women ' s Athletic Department. Each girl is a true representative of this group, as requirements are made in the social, physical, and literary. There are two meetings held a month, the first being a business meeting, but always having an interesting program in conne ction with it. The second meeting is strictly social. W. A, A. Council The W. A. A. Council is the nucleus about which the W. A. A. works. This group sponsors one of the most representative organizations of the campus, not only in number, but in the spirit of fair play and congeniality among its members. This year for the second time the W. A. A. sponsored a Play Day, a precedent which is being followed by the various Teachers ' Colleges of Texas and Louisiana.

At the beginning it met with difficulties due to the fact that it was non-convention- al and not trite. However, things were all cleared, and the group did a few things of interest during the year. Plans were made for a greater programme next year, and it is hoped that this organization will develop into a good writers club. Pape no A, W.

The College Band Director J. T. Cox was on leave of absence from the college during 1928-29 and the task of directing the college band was placed in the hands of Mr. T. N. Brothers, director of the Nacogdoches Municipal Band. Mr. Brothers com- bined the college and Training School musicians into one group and in this way formed a band of about thirty instruments. The College Band appeared at all football and basket ball games, as well as most of the social functions. At such time members of the town band assisted in making everything a success. The Band expects to give musical concerts on the campus a little later in the season and with the addition of a summer students an orchestra will be organized. One-third college credit is given for each term of work in the band. Choral Club The Choral Club is composed of a volunteer group of music lovers. Since its organization the first year of the college, it has given many musical programs of interest, and has been the musical representative of the college on many occasions in the city and on the campus. The Choral Club of 1928-29 formed a nucleus for a choir of over three hundred voices which furnished the musical background for an elaborated and impressive Christmas Pageant, Los Pastores. This choir sang carols of many nations, ranging from those of ancient to modern origin. The Club at this time rendered several difficult numbers, among them being the Hallelujah Chorus which was used as a finale for Los Pastores. At Easter the Club furnished the music for a beautiful Sunrise Service, on the south vista of the campus, which was sponsored by the college Y. W. C. A.

A. by repeating his act of the previous season and in 1928 training a live- stock judging team that literally " cleaned up " at the Southwestern Exposition. The team, composed of Carroll Thomas of Gary, Sterling Graves of Gary, Neil McDuffieof Garrison, and Cheslie Mitchell of Nacogdoches, won first place as a team, bringing away all of the cash prizes offered by the Fat Stock Show. Be- sides placing first for the school these boys hung a few scalps to their belts by individual honors. Thomas was high point man of the entire show, winning first in the judging of hogs and beef cattle and third in dairy cows. Graves won second place in the judging of sheep and dairy cattle, while McDuffie won three third places. For the past two years at least two men from Gary and one from Garrison have been on the team to represent the college at Ft. Worth. Each time one of the Gary boys has won highest individual honors. In 1927, Todd and Richards were the representatives, with Todd winning high honors, while Currie was the Garrison product. Later, as a result of their placing at the Exposition, Todd and Richards were elected as members of Lambda Gamma Delta, a National Livestock Fraternity. Thomas will no doubt be elected to this fraternity soon. Thomas Graves Mitchell McDuffie j 929 Stock Judging Team The Livestock Judging of 1929 Team was composed of Cyrus Heaton of Gary, Taylor Rhodes of Garrison, Mainor Westbrook of Newton, and Edward Hoya of Nacogdoches. This team was coached by R. R. Harvin. Before going to Ft. Worth the team went to College Station and spent some time doing judging work on the A. M. farm. Here they were assisted by Dr. D. D. Giles, former coach of livestock judging of this college. After rounding into final form, Mr. Harvin with his team motored to Ft. Worth in time for the opening of the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show. The team was unable to place any men as high individuals but placed fourth as a team. Much credit is due Mr. Harvin for this credible showing, since it was his first year to train a team and, with the exception of one man, having only beginning students with which to work. Rhodes Heaton Westbrook Hoya Paije in Tumbling Team The Tumbling Team, as an organization, is a newcomer on the campus. A similar club was maintained last season to assist the Lumberjackettes in provid- ing entertainment on different occasions, but nothing definite in the way of training was begun until this year. The organization is composed of a volunteer group of " limberjacks " who specialize in such stunts as pyramid building, over six, clever tumbling, and cart wheeling. Several members have already shown marked ability for the stage and under more strenuous coaching should develop into real acrobats. Much fun was furnished by this group during the past basket ball season and the club has become very popular. BOOK IV Athletics Coaches of Athletics R. H. Shelton, as Head Coach of Athletics, is rounding out a very successful season. Altho he did not produce a winning team in football, due to lack of material, the Lumberjacks finished high in the basket ball conference and the baseball squad is headed for the championship. With a new addition to the coaching staff, Mr. Shelton will become Director of Physical Education. Aside from his duties as athletic director, Coach Shelton is a man who is admired by all who know him. W. W. Dossey has been away from the college most of the year as he is pur- suing his studies at a northern university. Mr. Dossey is an able assistant in the athletic department, and has been instrumental in producing some winning teams. He knows how to instill the fight spirit and always commands the respect of his athletes. J. H. Hinds is track coach. He performs this duty in connection with his regular work in the agricultural department and his track teams are not to be hooted at. His personality makes him a favorite with all the men and it is a pleasure to train for " Jimmie. " Page uj Yell Leaders " Andy " Smith served his second year as chief yell leader; and we are sorry that it is his last, but the tall youth must graduate. During the time he has served in this position, " Andy " has won the respect and admiration of all the students and has successfully directed organized " rooting " for all athletic events and assemblies. He will be missed when the Lumberjacks get into action next season. Mary Lee Walton is another of the cheer leaders who will be lost through graduation. She was elected by the students because it was felt that the fairer sex needed a representative on the yelling staff, and after election she served so faithfully that she became indispensable. Murray McKenzie is the third member of the " gloom-chasers " corps. Murray has " it " when yelling is needed and can be depended upon to lead the students when a rally is needed. Fortunately, he does not get his degree this year and can be used another season. Page 124 " T " Association " It is the quality of the men that makes the quality of the college " The " T " Association of the college is made up of those men who letter in one or more of the major sports. The primary function of this organization is the stimilation and promotion of clean athletics, the safeguarding of American sports, and the building of a fraternal order of lettermen. At the beginning of the season the association was reorganized. Officers were elected, certain rules and regulations were adopted, and a definite program was formed. A close cooperation with the Athletic Council and other officials of the college made a realization of this program possible and an eventful season was enjoyed. All of the former athletes of the college were invited to attend the annual banquet held at the Liberty Hotel at which time plans were made for the nest season. OFFICERS Claude Stone....

Page us To Our Athletes We are proud of those men who uphold our athletic standards on the fields of contest. They do not always win, but with such spirit as is manifested by them, we are never the losers. Upon them falls the burden of protecting the high type of athletics that it has always been the desire of this entire school to foster. These men have measured up to the highest standards of sportman- ship. They have carried the spirit of our college upon many fields, and there they have performed in such a way as to do credit to themselves and to bring glory to their school. These true gentlemen, knights of the gridiron, basket ball court, diamond, and cinder path, have always loved a good clean fight and have played the game fair. To them who stand for a good clean fight, who hold their athletic ability as something money cannot buy, and who always work for clean athletics — to those true sportsmen and gentlemen, we inscribe this page of the Stone Fort.

CLAUDE STONE Tackle Stone was perhaps the steadiest and most dependable man on the club. A thrust at his side of the line always founds a " Stone " wall. EARL ADAMS Tackle Earl played a whale of a good season at tackle and if he does not return next year, he will be hard to replace. He is big, fast, and hustles all the time. BOB GILLESPIE Half Bob is a freshman from high school here who made good his first year. He was one of the best defensive backs seen here. Page 131 DELMA ALLEN Half Allen was a product of the high school here. He always enjoyed playing football because the rough- er the game, the better he liked it. He was a ball carrier of merit.

JOE BARHAM THRASH Quarter Thrash is a freshman who came up from the high schoo ' with a good reputation and made good. He was cool under fire and had few equals as a passer. GEORGE CHERRY End The " Cajun " played enough to receive his letter but because he failed to complete his academic work, he did not receive a sweater. SUBLETT PYLAND Quarter Pyland was a first-year man who came here from Allen Academy. He was a veritable stone wall on defense, as well as a fine ball " toter. " J. B. ADAMS End J. B. is a promising freshman from Timpson who bids fair to outshine his big brother in future years. He is big and exceptionally fast for one of his size. Resume of 192,8 Football Season The Lumberjacks opened the season with Baylor, one of the Strongest South- western Conference teams, and for the first half battled them evenly. The second half, however, found the Lumberjacks exhausted and without reserve. Baylor kept a string of substitutes coming in and finally won by the score of 32 to 0. The second game found the team invading the camp of an old rival, the Bob- cats. The Lumberjacks were defeated in a slow and listless game 20 to 0. Commerce defeated the Lumberjacks 26 to for the first time in four years. The score fails to tell the closeness of the game. Three times the Lumberjacks had the ball on the one yard line but failed to carry it over. In the next game with Lon Morris the Lumberjacks played a little better brand of ball and won by a score of 12 to 0. Possibly the best game of the season was played against Denton, resulting in a score of 13 to 6 in Denton ' s favor. In the next five games the Lumberjacks went steadily down the hill, losing to McMurry 49 to 0, Louisiana State Normal 20 to 0, Kingsville Teachers 45 to 0, Texarkana Junior College 20 to 0, and to Sam Houston State Teachers College 18 to 2. The greatest trouble of the season was the lack of experienced material and the failure of the team to develop as the season progressed.

Haskell Street Captain-Elect and Forward Page 137 TOMMY EVANS Guard Evans was even better this year than last, and he is a hustler all the time. He has a very good eye for the basket and is a good de- fensive player as well. EARL ADAMS Guard Earl was a very capable guard, capitalizing his great height and weight. His develpoment this past season was remarkable, and he will be a very dependable man next year. TROY DONNELL Forward " Hot-Shot " is the first S. F. A. basketeer to gain the destinction of being placed on the mythical all-T. I. A. A. team. He was the leading scorer, scoring more than any two of his teammates. He was also a good defensive man. BUSTER MORGAN Guard Buster is known as " Slow Motion " but surprised his critics by his hustling and scrapping tactics. He developed into a de- pendable guard, and he was very accurate with his long shots. EARL JACKSON Forward " Jack " is one hot Freshman when it comes to playing basket ball. He came here with a good high school record and is keeping it clear in college. We are expect- ing to see more of him next year. IRELAND RUSK Center Just when the loss of Sam Her- rington had cast a shadow of gloom over S. F. A. along came " Ox Cart " Rusk and filled his shoes as capably as any Freshman could be expected to. He had an uncanny eye for the basket. Page 140 ELLIS STAGNER Center " Slime " is a lanky youth from Pineland who knows how to handle the pill. His position is at center, and from this place he likes to drop the ball thru the basket. BOOKER MILLER Center Booker came here this year with a good reputation and a head of curly hair that made the girls envious. After the season is over the reputation and the curly hair are both still envied and admired. Page 141 Resume of x 02,8-2,0 Basket Ball Season The Lumberjacks played two pre-eason games with Texarkana Junior College and took them both by top-heavy scores. Immediately after the close of the Christmas holidays Lon Morris Junior Col ege came over to engage the ' Jacks. They were also snowed under by the smooth working offense of the home team. The first real test came when the Centenary " Gentlemen " came here for a two-game series. The ' Jacks won the first game 43 to 34, but the " Gentlemen " came back very strong the second night to win a thrilling 45 to 43 victory over a fighting Lumberjack team. The Kingsville Teachers came here for a two-game se ries, and although they put up a good fight both games, the Lumberjacks won because they were evident- ly the better coached and smoother working team. The ' Jacks journeyed to Denton to open the conference race. They were somewhat of a pessimistic team because they were without the services of Sam Herrington, star center. The ' Jacks were evidently not up to top form when the Eagles won the first game 38 to 32. They came back strong and won tjie second game by a score to 32 to 20. That same week the Commerce Lions came to Nacogdoches and took two games from the ' Jacks. The first game was one-sided, but the second was a thriller all the way. The Lumberjacks went to Huntsville to battle their traditional enemies. The Sam Houston team outfought the ' Jacks to take the first game 35 to 26, but the ' Jacks came back to take the second game by the same margin. The " Wood Cutters " then went to Commerce determined to avenge two defeats already suffered at the hands of the Lions. Commerce won the first game by the top-heavy score of 86 to 26. The Lumberjacks showed their un- conquerable spirit by winning a thrilling 30 to 28 victory the second night. Buoyed up by their victory over Commerce the ' Jacks came back home to take two games from the Huntsville Bearcats by 30 to 28 and 33 to 27 scores. The Lumberjacks engaged their friendly enemies from Louisiana in a four- game series, winning one and losing three games. They returned home to play the last games of the season with Abilene Christian College. The ' Jacks were victorious the first game but lost the second 33 to 39. This complete the most successful basket ball season S. F. A. has known. The ' Jacks finished fifth with a .500 average. Denton and Natchitoches were defeated tor the firsl time.

Wallace Pate Star Pitcher Lumberjacks Dugout and Men in Action TOMMY EVANS Catcher Tommy is one of the few three- letter men in school, already hav- ing won his letters in football and basket ball. Tommy promises to be much improved over last year. He is a very hard hitter, heady re- ceiver, and has a rifle arm. HASKELL STREET Infield Haskell is one of the best in- fielders in the conference. His be- ing shifted from second base to short made no difference and his fast fielding makes him danger- ous. Street has another year with the ' Jacks. LEONARD SMELLEY Outfield Smelley is out to win his second letter in baseball, and if determi- nation and hustling count much, he will succeed. None try harder then the " Jew. " EARL JACKSON Infield ' Jackson is the third of the trio who hail from Pineland. Jackson bids fair to outshine anything previously seen here at third base. He has an uncanny knack in grab- bing the hot ones, and he has a rifle throw to first. ED SHARPE Catcher Ed shares the catching duties with Evans, and there are few better receivers than Big Ed, but he is handicapped with a weak throwing arm. " LEFTY " SMITH Pitcher " Lefty " will probably see more service as an outfielder than as a pitcher because of his hitting abil- ity. If needed, he can be depended upon to southpaw most any team into submission. DELMAS HYBARGER Infield Hybarger, another freshman from Pineland, shows a marked ability to play baseball but lacks the competitive spirit necessary to become a great player. DARRELL MAY Pitcher Darrell is starting his second year as a hurler. Last year he did not break in until late, but he had an enviable record. Darrell always " bears down " and he is a power- ful hitter. Page 147 ELLIS STAGNER Infield Stagner is an elongated first baseman who hails from Pineland, where they make baseball players. He is showing up well in early season games both at bat and in the field. J. B. ADAMS Outfield Adams is a freshman but never lets that worry him. He handles himself like a veteran and takes a powerful cut at the ball. HIRAM BUCHANAN Pitcher Buchanan is a veteran of many seasons of baseball though only a freshman in college. He is a pitcher primarily, but he can also play in- field or outfield. He will probably see much service than in the box. ZERKEL ROUSH Pitcher Roush is a freshman but has had several years of experience pitching for amateur clubs. He has an as- sortment of stuff that is hard to hit. Page 148 Resume of Baseball Season 192,8 The season started when the Lumberjacks dropped a game here to the Lon Morris Bearkats by the score of 10-8. The ' J ac ks W on the other three of a four- game series from the Junior College. The Conference season was opened when the Lumberjacks journeyed to Huntsville. The two teams split a two-game series, Huntsville winning the first 9-4, while the Lumberjacks came back strong to win the second game 16-3. The second Conference team the Lumberjacks engaged on the diamond was Commerce. Commerce took three out of the four games, one of the games being by a 23-9 score. This is the most disastrous series suffered by the Lumber- jack baseball team since they entered T. I. A. A. competition. The ' Jacks closed their most unsuccessful baseball season in the history of the school by playing a four-game series with the Louisiana Normal Demons. The two games played on foreign soil resulted in tie games, both by 5-5 scores. The Lumberjacks finished third in the T. I. A. A., having lost four games in the Conference race. Track T. I. A. A.

He has the de- termination and all other creden- tials for distance running, and is expected to take some more points before the season closes.

He was able to step the quarter just a little faster than his opponents, and was a sure bet in the relay. ROBERT GILLESPIE Distance " Bob " came up from ' Doches high and took care of the mile. His stickability always carries him thru each race with a better record, and he has three more years with the varsity crew. Resume of 192,8 Cross Country Season Coach Hinds gave the call in the fall of the year for men to run three miles. There were twenty-five men to report, Todd and Cherry being the only letter- men returning for the grueling race. After many weeks of practice the squad got their first taste of competition when they won from Lon Morris by the score of 15-6. Five Lumberjack runners tied for first place: Cherry (Captain), Todd, Donnell, Wilkerson, and Jackson. On November 17 early in the morning Coach Hinds embarked with eight men to race the Huntsville Bearkats at the South Texas Fair. After running over concrete, shell, and mud, the ' Jacks took the short end of the score of 32-23. The T. I. A. A. meet was run off in Huntsville where four teams were entered into the contest. The purple clad runners of S. F. A. took second place. The ancient rival of the ' Jacks, the Huntsville Bearkats, took first place. Daniel Baker finished third, and Abilene Christian College fourth. After the season was finished upon recommendation of Coach Hinds, the Athletic Council awarded the following men the coveted " T " : Cherry, Todd, Donnell, Wilkerson, Lewis, and Thomas. Paije 156 Resume of 102,8 Track Season The Lumberjacks took a long jump into Louisiana to enter the Southwest Relays at Lafayette. The team was entered in two freshman relays, as the team had only one veteran to make the trip. The team won two third places in medley and mile relays. The second meet of the year found Coach Hinds with his freshmen groomed to beat their junior college rival in a close meet, by the score of 60-55. The mile realy won the meet for the ' Jacks. The feature meet of the year was to be held in Huntsville where Natchitoches and Nacogdoches assembled to meet the Bearkats in a triangular meet. In this meet the ' Jacks were nosed out of second place by Natchitoches, and Hunts- ville won first place. Lon Morris was not satisfied at their close defeat; so they came to Nacog- doches to get beat by a small margin of three points, when the Lumberjack ' s relay team took first to win the meet by the score of 60-57. April 26 saw the ' Jacks take the worst defeat of the season when Huntsville with a strong team beat the Lumberjacks by a lop-sided score of 81-32. The only feature of the meet was in the mile relay where the ' Jacks lost by a scant yard. Reeves won the only first place in the 220 yard low hurdles. The T. I. A. A. meet was held in Denton, and Coach Hinds took ten faithful workers to the championship meet where they amassed the total of one point. The following men made the trip: Thomas, Stone, McClain (Captain), Mc- Mullen, Wilkerson, Burch, Morgan, Reeves, Clark, and Todd. Page 157 Tennis The Tennis Team is rounding out one of the most successful seasons in the history of S. F. A. At the time the Stone Fort goes to press they are unde- feated, and are making a strong bid for the T. I. A. A. championship. The 1929 team is composed of A. H. Smith, Gillette Tilford, Joe Barham Thrash, and John Terry, with J. T. Herrington and Lew Sayers substituting. The team is being coached by James Taylor. Early in the season the team de- feated Lon Morris at Jacksonville, and also took the second matches in a contest here. Huntsville was the next victim of the ' Jacks, being forced to drop both singles and doubles on the local court. The squad then went to Huntsville and gave them their second drubbing. In this match the flashy playing of Terry was the big feature, with Thrash playing his usual consistent game. The team is now training hard for the Conference which meets in Austin, May 10-11. r Terry Tilford Sayers Smith Herrington Page 158 BOOK V College Life JESSIE LEE LEWIS Corrigan Prettiest Girl ISABEL GERLACH Livingston Queen of Senior Carnival Loiice ffotlis dokfi 6. tDflit J r Besi 4lt-floiuid Gift Best tftt Round ftot Feature Dignity personified.

THE PINE NEEDLE A Collegiate Editor A college editor should be a superman endowed with the patience of Job, the editorial ability of Horace Greely, the managing and directing ability of Charles Schwab, the diplomacy of Woodrow Wilson, and the judicial qualities of former Chief Justice Marshall ; he needs the keen humor of Liicoln, the dignity and philosophy of Soc- rates, the religion of John Wesley; he should have the literary ability of Shakespeare and the lack of conscience to perpetrate the atrocities of Amy Lowell. In addition to these few qualities he needs the physique of Jack Demsey, the nerve of a holdup man and Edison ' s ability to do without sleep. His brain should be so constituted that he could absorb the essentials of the 20 credit course by means of the barest perusal of the subject therein contained with honors so the faculty will respect him and allow him to remain in school. He should be absolutely foreign to the needs of rest, sleep, eating, recreation, the love of society, the inclination for the glory in athletics, school activities, and love. Having these few abilities to qualify as a fairly competent editor, there is a possibility that he would not be hauled on the faculty carpet more than once a week and kicked by the student body in general more than once a day. Page 176 rage 177 Stone Fort Staff Meetings Upon finding several of the Staff members lounging around the office on Thursday night, Editor Todd conceived the fertile idea of setting that time aside for regular meetings. This went very well until said information reached the Dean ' s office, whereupon it became necessary to make some changes, namely, that this said meeting be entered upon the Calendar and that female members of the Staff secure permits to attend. The first meeting was presided over by Sponsor " Jimmie " Taylor who out- lined the questions which he expected to give his History class on final exami- nation. (Note: Hawley and Jessie Lee were taking said course). A more or less round-table discussion was then entered upon, and such vital questions as the disillusioned condition of the faculty and the future of the college were thrashed out. N. L. Allen said that if certain people around the campus would only keep their noses out of the pie that the Staff would be able to put out a good book. Associate Editor Walton replied by saying that a good book was going to be published if she had to do it all by herself, and Frank Runnels punctuated this statement with a deep gutteral " amen. " It being decided that the Stone Fort would really be published, the next question employing the minds of this august body was: Who shall serve refreshments at the regular meetings? The " fairer sex " agreed to serve first if the male beings would return the favor. Agreed. Well, the next assimilation of the Staff was in the form of a called meeting. " Bill " Todd got his feet on the top of the desk and asked if anyone had any- thing to offer for the good of THE annual. Helen Moore said that she had lots of good ideas if she could only get them on paper, and Lucille Lacy said that she had already begun copying jokes from " Whiz Bang " for the College Life section. Todd began assigning duties on the different members but soon called an inter- mission for the purpose of listening in on a Radio program just then gotten by Haskell Street (they were in the Social Room). After this treat the members were served (by the girls) another delicate course, consisting of " Hot Dogs " with plenty of onions. It was some time before the Staff met again, for, as Raymond Rochefort said the masculine genders had some difficulty in raising funds with which to pay for refreshments, which, by the way, consisted of stale cheese sandwiches and salty pretzels. Too, a delay was caused in sending an invitation to Hessis West to come over from Lufkin and be in on the fun. Nothing worthy of mention was undertaken at this meeting, and the third and last convocation of " the gang " was adjourned after Murray McKenzie had sung " My Wild (Pennsylvania) Irish Rose " in bass clef.

Children should be heard, And never be seen. S e e She awoke in a daze (day ' s What?) and tried to recall how she came to be here in such a place. The flimsy garments that she perceived hanging on the chairs indi- cated that the room had re- ceived more than one inno- cent victum. Horrors, the other bed had been slept in. She had spent the night in the same room with this ob- streperous person (don ' t ask what sort of person that is) . Now, she felt the room whirl- ing about her; everything was a mass of motion; now she remembered — that mass of luring, greedy eyes to which she had been exposed. It was only yesterday and it seemed years. How these terrible experiences had aged her. CHAPTER II Gather kittens while you may, Time brings only sorrow ; And the kittens of today Will be old cats to-mor- row. — Oliver Hereford. (Continued on next page) Page 179 Think hard as she could, she could not place all the mys- terious happenings; and then it broke upon her that she had been thru the process of matriculation, and that she was only in a boarding house after all. CHAPTER III " Well, neither of us have shared The dainty. " That you plea? " Well neither of us cared, " I answer — " Let me see How have your trousers fared? " - -Rudyard Kipling. On her door she found a list of rules to be strictly obeyed. " Breakfast is served at six, " stated one rule. " At six what? " asked Miss Anne Thrope, for that was Miss Anne Thrope ' s name. Her roomate was called Miss Anne Thrope. Our heroine answered that breakfast was served at six tables. (Continued on next page) Page 180 One rule stated that because of highway laws only four persons were permitted to ride in one- seated cars. No pro- visions were made for the number to ride in tractors and steam rollers. Another rule stated that because of the fragility of cast iron no two girls should bathe at the same time lest they crash the tub. CHAPTER IV Miss Anne Thrope asked our heroine what rules were for, and our heroine was prepared for such a question, for she had had a course in geometry. Rules were to draw stright lines by.

She had an idea that the proper thing to do was to become ac- quainted. Forth she went on a good will expedition. tCttzty BoneS She found a group of students. Jesse Lee Adams was having her appendix removed and had invited them all to the opening. At this affair she met one of the full backs and be- came interested in Melvin Campbell, the guy that makes a girl ' s heart go like a patent butter churn.

Page 183 During the weeks that followed she met several notables. She met so many, in fact, that she decided to tabulate them. We can keep a secret and to prove that we can, we are going to tell you one that we are keeping. We read her diary, and since she was so impressionistic, it was very interesting, and since it was so interesting, we are going to give several items. CHAPTER VII.

Advertisements You have probably heard that there would not be any advertisements in the Stone Fort this year. W ell , tain ' t so. No college annual was ever put out without advertisments, and it can ' t be did. The Pine Needle editors have talked things over, and have hit upon the following plan for getting ads to help out the Stone Fort. Hoping that this arrangement meets with the approval of everyone, we are your humble servants and hope you the same.

Page 190 Why Faculty Members Go to the Power House It long remained a secret as to what was attracting the members of our faculty to the Power House. We all knew that the male members were organized into a Faculty Club, and it was thought that this was their clubhouse. But the Staff succeeded in secreting a man in the Power House and the real " low down " was obtained. It was found that the gigantic boilers had been converted into huge beer vats and a nice, modern " shinny " still was in operation. From his hiding place in the coal bin the reporter saw that Mr. Sparks was master of ceremonies. The drinks were always " on the house, " and after all the members had gotten in from classes the fun began. The secretary, Professor Upton, called the roll and each one present answered with a hiccough. Of course there was no business to attend to, and after each had become too top- heavy to stand they were seated and the program began. The following is the program that was given, it consisting entirely of disconnected speeches: Speech on " Ten reasons why I bought a Buick, " by Mr. Birdwell. Illustrated lecture on how to hold a pipe while smoking, by Mr. Cain. A nice " line " on " What I made last year raising Rhode Island Red Chickens, " by J. H. Hinds. Demonstration on how to get the most out of a cigar, by Mr. Wisely. Speech on " What I would have done if I had been elected State Superintend- ent, " by Mr. Garner. At this point of the program the members became too " talky " and Hood Goldsberry, who was acting a Sergeant-at-Arms, dispersed the instructors in time to reach their next classes. The Parable of The Freshman 1. And it came to pass that the son of a husbandman graduated from the village high school. Now, the husbandman was greatly pleased with the accomplishment of his offspring. 2. As the ninth month approached the husbandman called to his son saying: " My son, draw nigh, I would have speech with thee. " Thus spake the father: " Son, thou art pleasing in my sight. Methinks I will send thee to Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College, that great Temple of Learning, that you may sit at the feet of the wise men and women and learn of them. Therefore, my son, gird thyself in thy best raiment. " 3. Straightway the young man arose, packed the family trunk, and departed for the station in his father ' s trusty flivver. 4. After many hours the young man arrived at the Temple of Knowledge which is situated in a place called Nacogdoches of Texas. 5. Now, the wise men of the te mple admonished the young man to schedule for a heavy course. Being a stranger in the land he heeded their advise and was given a list of subjects that involved much trial. 6. When the young man beheld his schedule he was sorrowful. And he said: " I will arise and go to my father. " 7. Now it came to pass as he was about to leave the temple he met a group of young men. Noting that he was bowed down with grief thay comforted him, saying: " Be of good cheer. Your schedule is not heavier than you can bear. Behold us. We neither study nor toil, yet Solomon in all his wisdom could not make better grades than we. " 8. And the young man lifted up his face and rejoiced. And he spake unto the young men, saying: " Your courses shall be my courses, and your teachers my teachers. " 9. So the young man anointed his head with oil that his hair might stick down hard and fast. 10. It came to pass that the wise men and women of the temple worked diligently that the young man might acquire knowledge. To show his appreciation of their efforts he straightway cut a class. 11. The young man soon became accustomed to life in the temple. He chose the teachers whose courses were easy and whose teaching was light. 12 His life was one of ease and contentment. Sometimes he attended assembly where a strange man, whom he seldom saw, admonished the young men and women to devote themselves to much study. But it was a voice crying in the wilderness, for the young man heeded it not. 13. After many days the young man returned to his father ' s house. 14. Now, the father marveled at his son. For the young man could send cigarette smoke forth from his nostrils. He slept during the day and wandered about at night. 15. And the boy ' s mother spake unto her son, saying: " Son, did you spend much time in the library? " And the young man answered his mother, saying: " Surely, mother, you speak foolishness. There is no study hall at the temple. There are class rooms, where I sometimes went. There is an auditorium whre I found many pleasant companions. There is a campus where I spent much time and there is a gym where I danced. Too, there is a Green Lantern where I often refreshed myself, but surely, mother, I learned nothing about the library. 16. And the mother, loving her son, pressed him no more questions. •A A - AIL STORM When Sawyers Get Together About twenty-five Sawyers assembled in Room 107 which resulted in a meeting. The house was called to order by Brother Jenkins. Brother Smith then arose and asked that a committee be appointed to burn all last month ' s bills and keep a sharp watch for collectors. This met with great approval, and each member slapped the other on the back and told how glad they were that they were Sawyers. An attempt was made to begin the program but this attempt was interrupted by Brother Meisenheimer who came in late as usual. The ceremonies, however, finally began with a Black Bottom contest between Brothers Stagner and Grant. Folloing this came a duet, " She ' s my Girl Friend, " rendered by Brother Cook and Brother Jackson. Brother Hybarger came reel- ing in and announced that he knew where to get some liquor that would not eat the fillings out of your teeth. This brought forth a temperance lecture from Brother Hawkins, resulting in a resolution by Brother Hall to quit drinking and devote his energies to writing poetry, whereupon several of the brothers went into hysterics. Just then Brother Hunt and Dunn came in and allowed that they could whip any five men in the organization and a free-for-all began. Brother Walker fined all the members $1.00 apiece and order was restored. The meeting continued after Brother M. Campbell had opened a window to let out the smoke from Brother Kirtley ' s pipe. Brother Koonce made a motion that the club buy some spittoons, as the floor was getting a bit untidy. Brother Chandler then arose and told how to become popular with the women and Brothers Clark and Terry fell out of their chairs in a fit of laughter. Brother Melton suggested that the meeting place be moved to the Williamson House for the convenience of Brother O. Campbell. After an intense silence fifteen pledges were initiated, and all the men agreed to meet at the game next day and " raise hell. " The meeting was adjourned when Brother Todd began telling how he was elected editor of the " Stone Fort. " Clubs and Otter Parasitic Organizations Somehow it seems propitious that we say something or other (mostly other) about the clubs on the campus. P ' or, naive or verdant reader, this college abounds in clubs and coteries to which even their members are oblivious. So we, as true knights of the writers guild, append our list, with definitions and characterizations. Please don ' t feel hurt. Karle Wilson Baker Dramatic Club — The only thing that keeps these would-be actors off the stage s the manager; otherwise we would have to sit through their absurd and uninteresting presentations. It is indeed refreshing, however, to watch these neo-Barrymores and neo-Bernhardts who are evidently under the pitiably false impression that they are going over big. As for their productions — well, personally, we would rather go to a good funeral any time. Sawyers — A jolly, carefree band of " hell-raisers. " We could say more, but brevity, as the botanist says, " Is the nodular urge that recapitulates the Philo- genetic Law. " Pythagorean Club — This is a bunch of math sharks who puzzle their brains (???) with the problem that has baffled the mathematical world for the last half-century; namely, the question as to what tangent grapefruit juice will squirt when you attack the fruit with a spoon. They also pore over such prob- lems as the height of an anthropological parallelopiped whose altitude is inversely proportional to her lateral dimensions and avoirdupois. Thomas J. Rusk Literary Society — Defunct. Lumberjackettes — A rare collection of crimson-lipped, sun-kissed, and wind-blown hair maidens. Their chief function is to inoculate dead matter found on the campus with new life, vigor, and pep. This group ain ' t so bad. W. A. A. — A grand and glorious galaxy of feminine genders. Choral Club — A group of students who are persuaded to believe that they can sing. Fact is you don ' t have to be able to sing at all; just hum, grunt, or whistle occasionally. Hallmark says this is the place to " loaf " for an hour and not be reprimanded by Prexy. But this club is under the direction of Miss Pritchett, and she knows her sharps and flats. (Example: Pine Tree Hymn.) Potential Debunkers — A mob of cornfed huskies forming a noble but great- ly persecuted organization. This is the most potent and impartial organization on the campus; its members are gentlemen and scholars who have such human- itarianism breadth that they can overlook the shortcomings of our disillusioned faculty. Page 195 Faculty Questionnaire We feel that the following questions are as sane as some given to us on True- False exams; too, we believe that we have the same right to ask the faculty members to answer these simple little questions as they have to impose such things on us. These questions must be answered carefully, truthfully, and humorously. 1. Are you married, single, or otherwise? 2. Do you reside in this city? If so, why don ' t you move? 3.

LOVIE DOVIE5 And In Conclusion— The last picture has been sent to the engravers; the last page of copy is now in the hands of the printers. The 1929 Stone Fort is completed. As we gaze at the littered office about us, we are reminded of the many long hours of work and worry we have spent in compiling this volume. The typewriters, the shears, and the telephone are enjoying a much-needed rest, and all is quite and peace- ful in Room 125. At this time, as we look back over our year ' s work, we can see where the book might be improved in many respects, but lack of time and finances prevents us from changing now. We have endeavored to make this issue of the Stone Fort as represenative of the entire student body as possible. In this effort, a few new sections have been added. In The Pine Needle, we have tried to make it of univeral interest by mentioning as many of the represenative groups and personalities as we could think of. But our acquaintances are limited, we do not know everyone, and we cannot keep in touch with everything that is going on about the Piney Woods. We have asked for help and have gotten very little, so we have taken the material we had and worked with i t as best we could. If anyone feels that he has been personally offended by having a different picture run from the one he selected, by having his name spelled with an " e " instead of an " i, " or by some remark made about him, we apologize and assure him that no harm was intended. In the College Life section we have striven to avoid the vulgar and stick to the humorous and clever. Editing the Stone Fort has not been an easy job. It has already cost us several courses lost through negative hours, and has left us a slim chance of remaining in school after the close of the Spring Term. Certainly none of us have approched the Scholarship Society. But, in spite of all the trials and tribulations we have had to go through with, we feel somewhat of a pride at having been associated with this publication. Our work is done. The Stone Fort of 1929 is in your hands. Take it, read it, criticise it. We realize our shortcomings and know they are many, but we have done our best. Our success or failure is for you to judge. If our efforts have proven weak, we are sorry; if they have proven, or should prove of some avail, we feel amply repaid. So long, folks, — - " Bill " Todd. !L B R A R { OF Stephen f.

Into this work is woven the moments of many hours and here is fashioned the labor and hearts of many. It has been work inspired by the hope that because of it some good will come. If this can be, what matters it if time meant for rest has been spent for labor — where is the loss if hours have been taken from the night to lengthen the day? All service and all achievement, great or small, demands some sacrifice. Work must precede realization, and the love of work is the greater part of com- pensation. By comparison, no work is perfect. Today ' s efforts are better than the past, and the toil of Tomorrow will excel the task of the hour — but none have been, nor will e ver be, more engaging. This work has indeed been pleasant to those who brought it into being, and it has been our pleasure to work with them. THE E. L.
