COPYRIGHT 1930 Hawley Powell Editor Olen Henderson Business Manager lilt The 1930 Stone Fort Published by STUDENTS OF THE Stephen F. Austin Itate Teachers College Nacogdoches, Texas FOREWORD The events of college days are real to us now; so real that we do not gather their full significance. We can never forget them entirely, but we do realize that as the years pass what now seems so bright and vivid will approach nearer and nearer to oblivion. With this in mind the staff, in preparing this book, has kept the aim in view that it might present an accurate picture of life on the campus of S. F. A. and at the same time furnish a source for reviving personal memories associated with our school. CONTENT Feature il The Violets RTlSPHSff F. AUSTIN STATE COILITCJI NACOGDOCHES. TEXAS DEDICATION TO in appreciative recognition of the influence she has over the lives of students, and her tireless energy in serving the members of this institution, we gratefully inscribe this volume of THE STONE FORT. Engraver Southwestern Engraving Company Printer The E. L. Stuck Company Photographer W. F. SCHLUETER THE COLLEGE President Birdwell The STONE FORT comes to you again with a faithful picture of the college activities for the current year. It tells the story to which little need be added. Both the staff and the college send it on its mission of good cheer with hearty appreciation for the cooperative effort that has made it possible. The college has but one ambition — to be a big factor in educating the youth of Texas. It is trying hard to lead in sound educational thinking, and to regu- late all its activities in harmony with high ideals and worthy achievements. It trys to keep in mind the necessity of a comprehensive appreciation of the various fields of knowledge, to the end that students may feel at home in any company of scholars; and that they may be skillful in the use of the tools of thinking, to the end that new and unexpected problems may find speedy and correct solution. To this supreme endeavor we have dedicated our minds and our hearts. Very sincerely, A. W. Birdwell. Page Offices of the Deans Mr. T. E. Ferguson has returned to his office as Dean of Faculty after a year ' s study at Texas University with renewed vigor and interest. As an expert on administrative problems and a specialist in his field, he has few equals. He is ever ready to advise, inform, and instruct all students. Under his efTcient guidance high scholarship has been reached and maintained in the work here. The office of Dean of Women has proven itself a very necessary cog in the administrative machinery of the school. Miss Ruth Mays in a very efficient and intelligent manner performs the duties of her position, which is primarily concerned with the solution of problems relating to the welfare of the woman of the college. These problems present themselves in everchanging forms, and there is an undeniable need for the services supplied by Miss Mays. The Dean of Men, Mr. C. E. Ferguson, has the duty of advising and helping the men students in any problems which they might bring to him, and of seeing to their general welfare. Mr. Ferguson holds the respect and admiration of every student, not through the nature of his position, but through his genial and affable disposition. Page 2. Dedicated to the Memory of Professor fL F. Davis Superintendent of the Public Schools of Nacogdoches, who died April 8. He was a consistent friend of the college and of college students; his influence in the cause of education extended throughout the state. He be- lieved in boys and girls, and was the friend of students everywhere. Page 24 Board of Regents Hon. A. B. Mayhew, President Uvalde Hon. John E. Hill ... Amarillo Hon. William Z.

This section of the Stone Fort given over to this summer can in no way portray all of the events of this term. The nine o ' clock limit on the boarding house girls, the Thursday night band concerts and punch, the soda-water stand sponsored by the Woman ' s Council and others, and the exceptional quality and quantity of moonlight all come to mind as we think of the Summer School. It is the hope of the present staff of the Stone Fort that the Summer students will take advantage of the opportunity offered them to be represented in the college yearbook, and that this section will grow larger and larger as the book progresses.

Shelton be- came the Director of Physical Education this year. This relieved him of some of his heavy duties which he has had to perform in the past, and allowed him to devote more of his time to basketball and track. Both of these teams gave strong bids for honors in the T. I. A. A., and the ' J ac ks ' possibilities in these sports are unlimited under the direction of Coach Shelton. Eugene White came to the college this year as coach of football and baseball. White came from Washington and Lee, where he gained distinction in the field of athletics. The Lumberjacks finished the football season by winning the Turkey Day bout, and under the leadership of White they will give some- one some competition for the championship next year. W. W. Dossey is a valuable assistant on the coaching staff, especially in foot- ball and baseball. Mr. Dossey knows how to instill the fighting spirit and always commands the admiration and respect of the teams as well as the fans. Hody Wilson served this year as Business Manager. Hody was always right with the team and willing to do anything that he could to help the Lumber- jacks win. Page 97 Association OFFICERS Claude Stone ... President Haskell Street Vice-President ( ).

Ser«eant-nt-Arms The monogram club consists of those men who letter in at least one of the major sports sponsored by the college. The primary function of this organ- ization is the stimulation and promotion of clean athletics and the building of a fraternal order of lettermen. At the beginning of the season the association was reorganized. Rules regarding the wearing of the " T " were made, and a definite program formed. The " T " men cooperate closely with the Athletic Council and other officials of the college in the promotion and development of athletics in S. F. A. Yell Leaders That " ugly freshman from Newton " served his first year as yell leader during the past season. Roush came into office upon the recommendation of some of his pipe line colleagues, who firmly vouched for the tone and volume of his voice. Due to the lack of training Zerkel found slight difficulty in getting his mouth and hands to work together, but he proved that he has the ability which won for him a place among the college ' s great yell leaders. Jess Lee, through her untiring efforts to yell the ' Jacks on, either to a victory or a glorious defeat, proved to the fans that she has an everlasting source of available energy. The school regrets very much to lose Jess this year through graduation. " Slime " McKinney, a third member of the " racket-raisers " was a valuable aid to the yelling corps. His several years experience in leading yells in high school was of much use to him, and from all apparent evidence Jack will become an expert in this line of work before he is called by graduation. Page 99 To The Lumberjacks Some events of the human race are recorded in the pages of history and for- gotten; other events are recorded only in the minds of the participants and never forgotten. We wish to tell a little story which will always be written in the memory of every loyal S. F. A. man. Wednesday night before Thanksgiving a crowd of loyal students and teachers of S. F. A. met on the lower athletic field and pledged themselves to the prop- osition that all football teams can be defeated, while the Sam Houston gym- nasium was burned in effigy. Inspired by the statement from their leader that " the team that won ' t be beaten, can ' t be beaten, " the Lumberjacks reached a new spirit, which revived a morale somewhat degenerated by constant defeat. Turkey Day! Football game with ancient rivals! Dope ten to one against us! Three o ' clock and they are playing ball! Yea ' Jacks! Yea ' Jacks! Yea ' Jacks! Fight! Fight!! Fight!!! " Encore! " Half over, and the score 12-0 in favore of the Bearcats!!! No hope for the Lumberjacks — they ' re outclassed! " Want a touchdown? " cries the Bearcat yell-leader. " Well try and get one!! " Oh-Boy!! Lumberjacks score. Boom-Bah-Team ! ! Rah!! Rah!! Extra point? Well, Yes!! ' Jacks fight! ' Jacks fight! Yea- ' Jacks!! Fight!!! Bear- cat over-confidence becomes doubt and fear as the possibility of losing a T. I. A. A. championship begins to loom out before every Huntsville man. Another touchdown and extra point for the ' Jacks! S. F. A. fans forget themselves and give way to their emotions. Shouts! Yells!! Laughter!! Huntsville pep squads cry out for another touchdown. " Try and get one! " we reply. The whistle!! A game won for the ' Jacks; a championship lost for the ' Cats. Jubilant glee — parades — yelling for us; deep sorrow and tears for the opponents! We are proud of these men who refused to let the tide of circumstance prove too great for them; who shattered all T. I. A. A. dope; and above all, who proved themselves to be true sportsmen and gentlemen. To them and to the coach who trained them we sincerely dedicate this page of THE STONE FORT.

Although the ' Jacks won only one con- ference game and tied only one, Coach White and Coach Dossey are looking forward to next year and are carefully planning a team that should bring S. F. A. to the front. The T. I. A. A. Conference chase was opened by the San Marcos Bobcats ' defeating the Lumberjacks 24-7. In the second conference game the McMurry Indians, with eleven lettermen, took the ' Jacks into camp by the tune of 35-0. Anderson Ard Adams Stont Page 104 i7ffe STONE FORT ' Jacks Circle Texarkana ' s End The ' Jacks fought the superior team every inch of the way. The following week the Lumberjacks revived some of their old spirit and stopped the famed Commerce Lions ' aerial attack by holding them to a 6-6 deadlock. In Denton the Lumberjacks came out on the short end of a 31-0 score. The score as recorded in football history, however, fails to show the spirit with which the Axmen fought, even though they were defeated by five touchdowns. The next game was with the Louisiana State Normal Demons at Natchitoches, La. The Demons made a touchdown on a long pass within the first minute ' Jacks Check the Bulldog Onslaught of ihe game. Millard retaliated with a sensational dash through the entire Demon squad for a touchdown. It looked as if the S. F. A. warriors were due to win, but several of Coach White ' s mainstays were injured and the Demon aerial machine ran up a one-sided score. The Lumberjacks invaded a Southwestern Conference camp, the Texas A. M. Aggies. During the first half the Axmen showed up well against the stonger team, holding them to only one touchdown. In the latter part of the game, however, the ' Jacks weakened, not having a very large source of reserve strength, and were compelled to yield to the Aggies by a large score. Thrash Futch Rios Miller Lumberjacks Go Through the Bearcat Line Only one more game remained when the Texarkana Junior Bulldogs passed their way to a 37-18 victory. The game was one-sided in each half. Tex- arkana scored 37 points in the first, while the ' Jacks scored their 18 points in the last half. The dope bucket was completely turned upside down and the ' Jacks ended a seemingly unsuccessful season by covering themselves with glory by winning the annual Turkey day grudge game from the T. I. A. A. leaders, the Sam Houston Bearkats, featuring Coe, Burris, and Company. With the score of 12-0 against them at the beginning of the second half, the ' Jacks, led by Rabbit Page JO Tffe STONE FORT a ' Jacks Gain Around the Bearcat End Summers and Jew Smelley, started the greatest uphill battle ever put on by a Lumberjack team to win the game by a score of 14-12, and wreck the Bearcat vision of a T. I. A. A. championship. The game will go down in football history as one of the most stubbornly fought games in the T. I. A. A. And thus the ' Jacks of 1929 ended a heretofore unsuccessful season by crowning themselves with glory. Robr Phillips Rogers ■LP?

After losing the first game by one point, the ' Jacks came back with a brilliant offence, winning the game 48-26. Daniel Baker came next and was defeated the first night with an offense headed by Donnell. In the second game the Hillbillies managed to nose out ahead by one point. Denton followed and succeeded in taking the only series lost by the Lumberjacks in the T. I. A. A. The follow- ing week the Bearkats came over from Huntsville determined to take revenge for the defeat in football, but were forced to return on the little end of the score in both games. After a game with Lon Morris which was easily won, the ' Jacks Harrington Donnell Rush Morgan Page 113 Stagner Guards Donnell went out on a four game road trip which proved to be the most successful ever staged by the Axmen. The strong Corpus Christi Mohawks were badly beaten, and then South Texas was overwhelmed by the largest scores ever made in the T. I. A. A. The ' Jacks ended the season by dropping two games at the hands of Huntsville. The first game was lost by one point, and the second by a margin ol only two points. From a standpoint of games won the season might not appear so successful, but when the quality of the opposition is considered, it can be seen that the team did all that could be expected. Captain Street was the only man lost to the team through graduation. Kerr Harrington P. Street Stagni r Weller Gets a Hit 1930 beason Lon Morris. .1 S. F. A Lon Morris 6 S. F. A.

A Thrash Gets a Safe Bunt Resume 1930 Season Without any championship awarded in the T. I. A. A. Conference and with only two teams left in the T. I. A. A., the Axmen had to arrange a schedule with colleges from other conferences. The first game of the season was played with Lon Morris College, the ' Jacks winning a slow battle by the score of 6 to 1. Three days later White carried his team to Jacksonville to meet Lon Morris in a return game. This game was the beginning of a series of games which were lost by only one point. The ninth inning found the ' Jacks leading 5 to 1, but the Lon Morris Bearkats staged a rally to nose out over the Lumberjacks 6 to 5. On March 28 and 29 the strong Marshall nine came to ' Doches for two games. Millard and Willis locked up in a pitchers ' battle in the first game, and eleven innings were necessary to break the deadlock. In the eleventh Marshall ran in five scores, winning the game 9 to 4. The second game was another close one with the final score resulting in the eleventh inning 8 to 7. The feature of this game was a home run by Adams, which won the game for the Woodsmen. On April 2 and 3 the ' Jacks lost two games to Centenary by the narrowest of margins. Roush lost the first game 6 to 5 in a close and exciting contest. Millard pitched a good game in the second, but the Centenary nine nosed the Axmen out 4 to 3. The Gents got only three hits off of the ' Jacks, but ragged support lost the game for Millard. Page 117 Stagner on First The Centenary Gentlemen came to S. F. A. to keep up their good record. The first game was one of the best of the season, although the ' Jacks lost the match 1 to in the thirteenth inning. Rough gave up only three hits during the game, but an error gave the game to Centenary. The next day found a parade of pitchers facing the Centenary crew as they hit the ball to all parts of the field, winning the game 19 to 6. Coach White used Millard, Summers, Adams, and Street on the mound. The four closing games of the season were played with Nachitoches. The first two games were played in Louisiana, the ' Jacks won one of the series. Roush and Weems hooked up in a deadlock, and the Axmen won the first by the score of 3 to 2. The second game was " all Demon game, " as they won from the Hybarger Roush Phillips Evans Page nS Axmen 10 to 4. The only feature of this game was a home run by Adams. With all the ' Jacks anxious for revenge, the Demons came to ' Doches on April 29 and 30 to close the season. The first game saw the Lumberjacks hit the ball in every direction to whip the Demons 10 to 2. Millard was never in danger during the entire game. The second game was a peculiar game as the ' Jacks collected only one hit during the entire game, while Roush was touched for five singles by the opponents. Nevertheless, the Lumberjacks won the game 1 to 0, in one hour and twenty minutes. Millard on the Mound Three Lumberjacks played their last game for the Purple and White in this game. Street at shortstop, Summers at first, and Moore in right field are all three to be lost by graduation. During the season the ' J ac k s played fourteen games, winning five and losing nine. Six of the games lost were dropped by only one score. There were only two pitchers out this season and several of the games lost might have been won if the ' Jacks could have sent a relief pitcher. Adams led the club in hitting with and average of .377 in fourteen games. Summers Adams Donnell Weller PtOC 120 Trac Front row: Gillespie, Green, Speights, Stagner, Beall, Phillips, Forque, McDonald.

Resume of 1930 Season Coach Shelton took the duty of track coach for the first time this season with more faithful workers reporting than any time during the history of the college. The track season opened on March 22 when Coach Shelton carried four men to Ft. Worth to enter the Fat Stock Show Track Meet. Adams was entered in the dashes; Smelley in the low hurdles; Wilkerson in the 440 yard dash; Stagner in the high jump. Stagner was the only man to place, tying for second place in the high jumps. The second meet of the year was a triangular meet at Jacksonville with Lon Morris Junior College and Jacksonville High School. The ' J ac ks scored 90 points while the high school collected 12 and the junior college 17. The Axmen lost only three first places. On April 14, the feature meet of the year was held in Nacogdoches. Hunts- ville, Natchitoches, Ccmmerce, and the Lumberjacks assembled to have a quadrangular meet. This was the best college meet ever held in East Texas. Huntsville took first with 75 points, and Natchitoches nosed the Axmen out of second place by the score of 33} 2 to 32. Commerce took fourth place with Stagner Clears Eleven Feet Six 23 points. Donnell and Smelley were the only ' Jacks to win a first place in the meet while Stagner tied Epps of Sam Houston in the high jump. The next meet of the season was at Commerce on April 21 when the Axmen showed the worst form of the season taking a defeat of 723 2 points to 443 . The time in all the races was slow, and this meet proved to be one of the slowest in the conference. April 28 found Coach Shelton and his thinly clad athletes in Huntsville to take the Bearkats on in their annual dual meet. The Sam Houston school Phillips Gillespie Adams Wilkerson Page 12J Smeli.ey Green Speights Kerr in the meet with a one-sided score of 87 2 l( 27J . This was a very fast meet, two conference records being broken in the 100 yard dash and the 2 mile rim. Stagner won the only first place for the ' Jacks when he took the high jump. Coach Shelton took twelve men to the conference meet held at Denton May 9 and 10. The following men made the trip: Adams, Stagner, McDonald, Wilkerson, Forque, Speights, Gillespie, Smelley, Donnell, Beall, Green, Phillips.

Tennis is a sportsman ' s game and the success of a team is not always to be measured in terms of the number of games won or lost, but in terms of improve- ment of ideals of sportsmanship and appreciation of the game itself. The team has had many handicaps but has worked hard in spite of them and marked improvement has been shown as the season progresses. The chances are good that the T. I. A. A. champions will find the ' Jacks strong contenders. The team is composed of Joe Barham Thrash, John Terry, Lemuel Kerr, and J. T. Herrington with Lew Sayers and I. D. Power subsituting. The team is being coached by A. L. Long. Page i Woman ' s Athletics W. A. A. The Women ' s Athletic Association, organized in 1925, is the oldest organization cm the campus. The purpose of the W. A. A. is to create an interest in active recreations, and to cultivate an appreciation and enjoyment of healthful living. The organization sponsors a diversified intramural program, thereby allowing for the varied interests of women students. As a feature for this year ' s pro- gram the W. A. A. sponsored a Play Day on April 12, at which the athletic- associations from Marshall Junior College and Huntsville were represented. This was by far the largest Play Day ever held at this school. Under the sponsorship of Miss Jagoe and under the presidency of Ruby Tannery, a very profitable year has been spent during 1929-30. W. A. A.

As a member of the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association, it has entered many of the contests sponsored by that organization, and its goal is to win some trophies awarded for achievement in literary events.

Vice-President Treasurer Secretary Director Although the Karle Wilson Baker Dramatic Club did not have many members this year, its work was superior. Due to a new system and the capable direction of Helen Hickman, the club was very Micce sful both in dramatics and finances. In November, Seven Keys to Bald pate by Cohan was the term production, while Icebound by Davis was given in March, and Laugh That Off by Mul- lally, in May. The Mask and Wig Club of Eon Morris came to see Icebound and was entertained by K. W. B. Club with an after-theatre tea. Page rjS " Seven Keys to Baldpate " by Cohan was the term production of the Dramatic Club during the Winter of 1929. The cast, although to a great extent inex- perienced, responded to the capable directing of Miss Hickman, and won the approval of a large audience. " Icebound " by Davis was presented in the Winter term by the Dramatic Club. This was perhaps the best play given during the whole year by the club. The nature of the play demanded acting which is rarely found outside of professionals, but all the members of the cast succeeded in portraying their role to a decided success. Page 1-19 " Los Pastures, " a Christmas pageant, was presented by the students uf the college, and was sponsored by the Y. W. C. A.

The Debaters Club was organized in the Fall of 1928 with only a few mem- bers, and after a period of uncertainity as to the future outcome, it began to grow and has continued to increase in number and importance. The club has sponsored a more extensive program this year, several debates having been arranged, some of which have not yet taken place. Pago 151 Wilson Jackson Holt Bates Miller Freeze 1930 Intercollegiate Debaters The three debating teams of were chosen from the Debaters Club and consisted of Foard Wilson of Nacogdoches, Milledge Jackson of Nacogdoches, Kdd Holt of Klkmont, Ala., Kyle Bates of Nacogdoches, Joe Miller of Putman, and Hulie Freeze of Nacogdoches. The question for this year was, " Resolved, That the Nations should adopt a plan of complete disarmament, excepting such forces as are necessary for police purposes. " The first debate was won by Joe Miller and Edd Holt against the Oklahoma City University. Milledge Jackson and Foard Wilson denied the question against three co lleges, Weber College of Ogden, Utah; Paris Junior College; and North Texas Teachers. They lost nothing except the decision of the judges, and gained quite a bit of educational experience in participating in the debates. Page 152 awyers OFFICERS Joe Melton... Dr. Jackson. James McKee Reporter Captain Treasurer The history of the Sawyers during the 1929-30 session is replete with incidents of hilarious hell-raising and ear-splitting yelling. Many will recall with pleasure (slimes omitted) the trip to Natchitoches, the uplifting ceremonies, and the deaf and dumb football star, Dr. Jackson. Perhaps a few will remember the sloppy trips to Jacksonville and to Huntsville — the time Jack McKinney ' s car broke down when the temperature was 4 below — and the all-night trip home in the rain. But the real ability of the Sawyers was demonstrated at the athletic contests. " Remember the time the Sawyers made so much noise that the fans requested them to leave their axe handles at home. And, say, you haven ' t forgotten the score of the Huntsville game, nor the oratory at the meetings, and the way the gang sold annuals to win this page free? Well, no! " Everybody happy? Well, yes!

Page 160 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 pro- grams of interest, and has been the musical representative of the college on many occasions. This year its principal activities have included the musical setting for the Christmas Pagent, " Los Pastores, " The Early Morning Easter Service and the comic opera, " Pinafore. " The music for " Los Pastores " included an original setting of the Prophecy from Isaiah, which belongs to the college, and interesting and beautiful carols from many nations. These were given by solo voices, the club quartet, and the ensemble. In the Easter Services and old Breton carol, " The Three Lilies, " hymns from Palestrina and John of Damascus, and many impressive modern numbers were given. The " Pinafore " music presented the Choral Club in an entirely different vein. Page 161 Motive: Following the Lumberjacks to victory in all athletics. Perhaps the College Band deserves to be called the most willing organization on the campus, for its members are always willing to lend their services to any worthy cause which is launched.

This team was coached by Dr. D. D. Giles, Professor of Animal Husbandry. Before going to Fort Worth, the team went to College Station and spent some time doing judging work on the A. M. farm. After rounding into final form, Dr. Giles carried his team to the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show. The team was unable to place any men as high individuals, but placed fifth in the contest with 1284 points out of a possible 1800. The team did good judging on dairy cattle and hogs, but showed lack of training in judging sheep and beef cattle. Ainsworth was high point man of S. F. A. with 463 points out of a possible 600. Seamans was second with 412 points, and Terry third with 409 points. Laird was the alternate man on the team.
