22,: 78 YEARBO STEPHEN STATE TEACH NACOGDOCH t AUSTIN COLLEGE TEXAS SpCoW 517! .552. S76 x ATHLETE • f AWKTES AVRIL WOOD, Editor EVERETT JOHNSTON, Business Manager MISS SUE HILL, Sponsor FOREWORD All the world ' s a stage, And all the men and women merely players- ' They have their exits and entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts. —Shakespeare The staff of the 1 940 Stone Fort wishes to preserve for you those experiences called " College Life. " The curtains of 1939- 40 part, and before you we hope to re-enact its scenes with our campus as the stage. You, as a student, are a member of the huge cast that marches across the scenes. We have thought of the faculty as the directors, the favorites as the stars, and the organizations as the assistants, technicians, and stage hands that move behind the sets. In the sports and features sections we have presented a brief review of the plot pictured in por- traiture, tableau, and pantomime. As the acts unfold we hope thev will bring back to you pleasant memories of the past year. OIBRARY OF Stephen F. Austin state teachers Coujse Nacogdoches, Texas Gibbs Hall, the new girls ' dormitory, which was first opened in the summer session of 1939, is the pride of the cam- pus in the way of hous- ihg. It is the home of 90 girls who decorate its comfortable and stylish interior and entertain in its attractively furnished lounges. The acme of the modern equipment, efficiency, and beauty, it stands apart from the rest of the buildings and yet it is the center of many of the prominent events of the year. It is named for Mrs. Eleanor H. Gibbs, Head of the Art Department for many years, who was loved by faculty and stu- dents alike. Its halls and furnishings reflect her spirit of refinement and artistic eood taste. Within the two build- ings pictured on this page occurs some of the most exciting action of our drama. The Boys ' Dormitory, located just a few steps behind the Main Building, was completed in 1936. It is equipped with the lat- est room communication system and with electric coolers on each floor. In addition to attractive and comfortable rooms for seventy-six boys, it houses the fashionable and inexpensive cafe- teria which is open to all of the student body. In the social room of the cafeteria many of the year ' s banquets and parties are held. Coach and Mrs. Willis are the successful foster parents of all the boys, and Miss Berrier manages the Cafeteria in addition to planning the meals for Gibbs Hall. A. W. Birdwell, president of Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College— " Dr. Johnson had attained the highest ranking in his chosen field of chemistry. Along with his fine scholarship, he was straight, clean, and honest. I have never known a more honest gentle- man. " Dr. R. H. Adams, SFA biology professor— " Dr. Johnson was a gentleman in every sense of the word. He was a sincere man with a sound code of ethics; a man whose friendship 1 valued very highly. " Fred Dorsey, SFA student- " I think that his memory will live in our lives. He was always interested in students in school and watched them after school. He constantly thought of ex-students and their work. We will remember him not only as a teacher but also a friend and a counsellor. " BOARD OF REGENTS Hon. W. B. Bates Houston, Texas Hon. J. E.

Jackson Alpine, Texas Hon. R. A. Stuart For t Worth, ' Texas Hon. J. G. Ulmer, President Tyler, Texas Hon. H. A. Turner, Secretary Austin, Texas When you receive your copy of the Stone Fori another college year will have passed: a year of opportunities improved or abused. Some of us have additional years in college; some are receiving their last annual. To all the book will be a reminder of college activities for the school year of 1939-40. It will increase in value throughout all the coming years. We like to look back, and, happily, things in the past are magnified. I trust that each member of the college family has had a happy year, which means, after all, a year of growth. I trust that each has been filled with the joy of learning, and that this joy is so poignant that it will become an established habit. It goes without saying that I wish for each student many years of growing and serving, that each one will compensate the State for the opportunities afforded here by becoming an intelligent, progressive citizen of the State. Speaking for both myself and the college faculty, may each one of you carry to your homes genuine affection for the College Among the Pines. A. W. Birdwell, President. 5 Ma I express the ho| e that your college career has aroused m you an intellectual curiosity that will lead you into continuous reading and study, that yout college lite lias imbued you with the social ' ■_j;).iics that will make- you charming ladies and gen- tlemen, and that ;our studies have: instilled in you an intellectual and moral honesty that will mature into sound judgment and unyielding courage in meeting your personal and comvnuniu problems. Thomas Evving Ferguson, Dean of the Faculty. " A rolling stone gathers no moss, but acquires a mighty high polish. " I sincerely trust that your thoughts wdl travel sufficiently to give you that de- sired polish, and yet will be stable enough to make your judgment sound and respected. D. II. Git.ks, Asst. Dean of Faculty. I DEANS College experience should help us to keep our minds open to truth, to think straight, and to under- stand and sympathize with the problems of our neighbors; and whether you believe it or not. this can be fun. Sue Hill. Dean of Women. A young man, with whom Socrates was discuss- ing the nature of the ideal city, objected that such a city could not be found anywhere. Stxralcs as- sented, but added: " There is laid up a pattern ol it, nielhinks, which he who desires may behold, and beholding, may set his own house in order. ' 1 C. E. Ferguson, Dean oj Men. E. M.

" Apron Strings " by Dorronce Davis, a clever three act farce was the first presental ion of the club for the 1939-40 school year. Aikman Gymnasium was packed and laughter echoed through- out, pi oving another hit for the Dramatic Club. Cyril McGilv- ray played the lead. The Dramatic Club reached new heights when they pre- sented their assembly program to a crowded house— the famous one-act play, " Afraid of the Dark " by William F. Callahan. The scene just before dawn in death row in a penitentiary was beautifully enacted by Bob McGraw, Bill Ferem, Douglas Black mon, Beverly Rhyne. and Willard Kilpatrick. " Ceiling Zero, " the play of plays, played two nights, with a climax in the second act literally pulling everyone out of their seats, took its place as one of the finest and most technical plays 10 ever be given in Nacogdoches. The play starred Lesta Shackleford and Dan Lowe and contained a supporting cast numbering around thirty. The stage set for " Ceiling Z.cro " was designed, built and painted by the class in amateur play production. Scene from " Apron Strings ' MEMBERS Allison, (His F rem, William PatK in, Brownie Ah is.

Key Faculty Sponsor Thomas E. Ferguson Faculty Sponsor THE COACHES and . . . . Rounding out his third year at S. F. A., the genial J. E. " Red " Willis turned out one oJ ihe best hustling, colorful aggregations that S. F. A. has seen in the past few years. On its own merits, the team that " Red " turned out was on a par with any team in the Lone Star Conference. Recognized as one of the smartest football coaches in this section, the Texas Christian Uni- versit) alumnus is expec ted to give Stephen F. Austin during the ensuing seasons something to talk about in the football way. S. F. A. is indeed fortunate to have such a scholar, versatile- coach, and perfect gentleman at the head ol its grid machine. When Coach Willis came to S. F. A. from Tex- arkana junior College in 1937 to assume the lead- ership of the local eleven, lie chose as his able assistant Ralph Murff, a lormer Centenary Col- lege football luminary and earlier a protege of Willis when the likable " Red " was serving as coach at Marshall High School. Fresh from the gridiron where he starred in the rear cordon for Centenary, Murff aided great- ly in deve loping the colorful 1939 Axemen eleven. Admired by every student, " Ralph " fills very capably the job as assistant coach. (Soach [, E. Willis Asst. Coach Ralph M urff THE SQUAD THE SQUAD OF S. F.

Lumber- jacks nosed out the Henderson State Reddies 7-0, October 6, on Birdwell field. Early in the first quarter, the fighting men of the Purple and White drove down to the Reddies ' four-yard line, after McGraw advanced the ball some 50 yards in six brilliant plays. With the ball on the four-yard marker and four plays to go over for the marker, the ' Jacks offense stalled as three power plays by McGraw and Walters then an incomplete pass, McGraw to Jones, turned the ball over. Coming back in the fourth quarter with only one yard to go, on the first play big Harry Bean, ripsnortim Jack fullback, broke over the stubborn Reddies ' goal flag, and rubbed the ball in the luscious pay dirt. Bol McGraw converted. Mixed in with McGraw ' s thrilling gains were power dives by Wiggington and Walters, both boys hittinj the Reddies ' line with plenty of drive. McKewin played splendid, heads-up ball, being in the right place at th ' right time to break down the enemies ' running game. Playing superb defensive ball along with McKewen wa the entire forward line, with every man hustling at assignments with lots of drive and force. Other standouts in the rear cordon were Johnnie Asaff, Ed Henning, and Burton Yeats, beside the hard hitting Buster Walters and Harry Bean. SAM HOUSTON BE ARK ATS SUBDUE LUMBERJACKS Playing before a crowd of 3,000 people, November 25, Homecoming Day for the Axemen, the Sam Houston ?arkats subdued the Lumberjacks 14-0, in a hard fought, nerve racking game. Two passes from Barfield to Gifford set the stage for the first Kat tally. With the ball on the ' Jack five- rd line, Law plunged for the touchdown. Tippin converted from placement to give the Huntsville aggrega- »n a 7 to lead at the half time. The Axemen rallied in the last quarter after Barnett punted over the ' Jack goal. McGraw passed to Hop i for 17 yards and heaved to Johnson who went to the Kat 42. However, the Purple and White thrust was ought to a close when McGraw ' s pass was intercepted on the 25-yard stripe by Gifford. Five Axemen, playing their final game for the Axemen, were the game ' s standouts. Wilson McKewen, Jim- ie Jones, B. G. Robb, M. H. Hopson, and Buster Walters received a big hand for their final efforts, and for the ije sportsmanship they have shown for S.F.A. JACKS SUCCUMB TO NORTH TEXAS EAGLES 14-0 Offering stubborn resistance, but not the team to stop the rampaging Eagles from Denton, the outclassed Lumberjacks bowed in defeat to the dreaded Eagles, Friday, October 20, to the tune of 14-0. The first payoff for the Eagles came in the initial quarter when Riola, the little Italian boy, pegged the pig- skin to Kyle, with James converting the point. Early in the second quarter the Eagles scored again after intercepting McGraw ' s pass on the S.F.A. 10. Stocky Walter Parker picked up five yards, and after James made four more, he went over for a touchdown on the next play. James converted the extra tally. Outstanding for the ' Jacks were Johnny Asaff and Buster Walters, who led the ' Jacks backfield, with Bob McGraw, Roquemore, Bailey and Wiggington showing up good in places. The forward wall of the ' Jacks played good ball, with Robb, Sonntag, McKewen, Hopson, and Jones leading the attack. There was no alibi ing from the ' Jacks. The Eagles salted the game away on two breaks: one, a long loop- ing pass, the other, an intercepted pass in Lumberjack territory. The ' Jacks fought hard, but it was not their night to win! M. H. Hopson D. T. Bailey Ed Henning Burl Robb LUMBERJACKS PLAY TO 0-0 TIE WITH A. I. JAVELIN AS Two evenly matched teams, the ST. A. Lumberjacks and the Texas A. I. Javelinas, battled to a scoreless - on rainsoaked Birdwell Field Friday afternoon in a non-conference game. Kingsville made their only ser ious threat early in the initial quarter when Grimes covered Yates ' fumble on e Axeman 30, and Dougger and Mattingly lugged the oval to the 19 where Duggan attempted a field goal that .•nt wide. The ' Jacks retaliated with a dazzling aerial attack that sent them deep into Kingsville territory. Two from cGraw to Hopson and another to Jones, left the ball on the Hog 1 1-yard stripe. Met .raw made four at right tard, but the locals ' efforts were nullified when Dugger intercepted an Axeman pass on the one foot line. The two teams battled on even terms throughout the remainder of the fracas with each team often punting It first down with the hopes that the other would fumble. To name a star from the S.F.A. eleven would be unjust. Every wearer of the Purple and White played a ■liar defensive game. Mud and rain prevented anything worthwhile offensive.

Millard Massey, Lion left-half, raced 70 yards in the first quarter for the opening tally and led a sustainc drive in the second quarter which resulted in the touchdown when White crashed over. The Lumbermen made a spirited bid for a touchdown early in the second period. After halting a Lie march on their own 18-yard line, Bob McGraw, Lumberjack ace back, turned in a number of nifty runs, one goc tor 20 yards and another for 30, that left the ball on the Lion 15-yard stripe. A 15-yard penalty against the Axeme caused the loc als to bog down and the ball went over on downs. Walters and McGraw were the backfield stars. Hopson, Robb, Ferem, Swier, Johnson, and Sonntag sparkle in the Jack line; however, it was the smashing line backing of Wilson McKewen that drew top honors of tl evening.

PASSING ATTACK CLICKS— JACKS OUTCLASS SAN MARCOS BOBCATS Striking from the air, and running powerful ground attacks, the ' Jacks completely out- played and outhustled the Southwest Texas Bobcats, chalking up a score of 12-6, Oct 27. The Bobcats ' score came in the first three minutes of play. On the first SKA punt, McGraw punted from his own 40 to Lomax on his own 20. Behind clicking blocking, the swivel-hipped Bobcat back cut over to the sideline and ran 80 yards for the Cate score. The Jacks got their marker the hard way; starting on their own 37, McGraw, Jones, Hopson, and Bean brought the oval down the field, where Asaff made a 10 yard run, to put the ball in a position to where McGraw passed the ball to Hopson, deep in the Cat end zone for a Lumberjack touchdown. McGraw failed to convert. Late in the second quarter, Yeats, Roquemore, Swier, and Johnson carried the ball down the Bobcats ' line, where Yeats went around left end and gave the ' Jacks their second counter. In such a game, every man rilled his part— McKewin and Parnell played their best . . . but so did the rest of the team; each man of the ' Jacks was outstanding. THE PURPLE AND WHITE ...

Drum-majoring the Axeman scoring parade was Van San ford, cloud-dodging center, who dusted the meshes for 17 points.

Winning top honors six successive times, this is the third year for the ' Jacks to finish second best. Pascal Red ' ' Haney Vernon Barron Dale Cupit I _ LUMBERJACKS HIT STRIDE TO WALK OVER SAN MARCOS Rambling into championship form shown early in the season, the Purple and White tide of S.F.A. completely engulfed the San Marcos Teachers in a L.S.C. encounter February 6, by the top-heavy score of 60-35. Exhibiting lightning speed on the hardwood and " dead eye " accuracy at the basket, the Shelton quintuplets blasted the Bobcats under heavy after getting a slow start. Holding the whip over the Cats ' head, and backed by Haney, Gunnels, Cupit, Barron, and the Franks brothers, Van Samford, the Gulliver-shaped center, crocheted the meshes for 27 markers, and missed breaking the one-game Lone Star Conference record by only seven points. Bennls Franks Marsh ell Matterson Van Samford i JACKS TRAMPLE NORTH TEXAS IN LONE STAR WIN Marching in double quick time, the ' Jacks lambasted the North Texas Eagles, January 12, to the tune of 45-32. Blasting the meshes from all angles, Bob Shelton ' s Lumberjacks plucked the Eagles in championship style, mowing down the boys from Denton in steady form. Long shots from mid-floor by sharpshooters, the Denton- ites gave the Axemen hot competition throughout the heated contest, but the clicking, smooth working Purple and White machine crushed the Eagles in the second half and put the game on ice in the fourth canto. Loopers by Lawrence Franks, Matterson, and Bennis Franks stuffed the basket with S.F.A. counters. Gun- nels and Barron, S.F.A. guards, played their usual steady brand of ball, as did Paskel Haney, dependable forward. Morris Samford T. L. Martin Rob McGraw M. H. HorsoN LUMBERJACKS TOPPLE TO NORTH TEXAS Overpowered in the fading seconds of a nerve-tingling fracas, the Lumberjacks lost a tightly played L.S.C. ;ame to the North Texas Eagles in Denton, Eebruary 13, by the count of 49-47. With both fives battling closer than two coats of varnish throughout the hair-raiser, S.F.A. led in the final ninutes of play, only to have the Eagles sack up four {joints in the last minute of playing time to steal the hard ought contest. Excellent ball-tossing on the part of the Purple and Whites enabled Van Samford to keep up his scoring Ipree. making a total of 22 points in the game. Lightning break-a-ways and fast handling on the part of Cupit and Cook accounted for much of the excellent flaying shown by the Jack five on the foreign maples, while Barron and Gunnels stood out as guards, slowing own the North Texas forwards from rabbits to snails. Jake Nash D. T. Bailey Winfred " Chief " Battice Larry Covin T. L. Martin The daw n of the 1940 track season saw one of the best c inder machines S.F.A. has seen in the past few years. A well-balanced, smooth-working crew, one that deserves praise from every student— and is appreciated by the entire student body. The local harriers attended all important meets in the Southwest, and made an excellent showing in many of them. Under the supervision ol ' Bob " Shelton. S.F.A. next year promises to have one of the best, if not the best trac k team of the Lone Star Conference. Top row: Naylor, Mast, Perkins, Martin, Wrey, Coach R. L. " Bob " Shelton.
