SCENES Never before in the history of our beloved Stephen F. Austin has the year of college life been so affected by outside influ- ences. We have seen our teachers, friends, and loved ones lay down the purple and white of their Alma Mater to take up the red, white, and blue of our grand and glorious U. S. A. Many of those whom we have known and who have fought on Birdwell Field and in Aikman Gym for S. F. A. are now fighting on different fields in many different lands for a far greater purpose. Yes, they are fighting for you and for me, so that we may have the four Freedoms — Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Re- ligion, Freedom from Want, Freedom from Fear — as laid down by our President and Mr. Churchill. Surely, they are worth fighting for! To honor those who have left our forty acres and to present to you a picture of Stephen F. Austin with its many changes, has been the two-fold purpose of the staff of the STONE FORT OF 1943. SNAPS BooAi DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL DEDICATION To Dr. Paul L. Boynton, S. F. A. ' s young president from Peabody, whose boundless energy, untiring effort, and sincere interest in the welfare and benefit of the college aided in secur- ing the W. A. A. C. unit to train here, we earnestly dedicate our annual. In this yearbook we also honor our boys on the fighting front and those in the training camps all over the United States. Yes, to every S. F. A. ex-student who is seeing service under the Stars and Stripes and to those unsung heroes in our college who have yet to answer their Uncle Sam ' s call to colors, we are proud to dedicate our annual. DR. PAUL L. BOYNTON to the flag of the United to the Republic for one nation indivisible, with No institution can be said to have lived in vain if in the hour of crisis its stalwart sons and daughters respond with the courage and distinction which is characteristic of those to whom we pay tribute at this time. To those who have given the last full measure of devotion, mingled with deep sorrow, goes our eternal gratitude. They are now in communion with the spirits of great hearts who, through the ages, have died to make men free. To those who are wounded, we send our sympathy and our prayers for speedy recovery. To all there go from this hallowed place pride and love, together with complete confidence that they will bring undying honor to themselves, their loved ones, and their Alma Mater. Let us here highly resolve to be worthy of their sacrifice. lVU and s ; GusBoun toU941 Son ot Nii- „. Ued in me LT CARL COOk onef anconcentrauon States of America, and which it stands, liberty and justice for all. JOHN CARLOS ROUNSAVILLE — a great patriot from a family of great patriots. One committed both in spirit and in action to the preservation of the loftiest ideals of our American civilization. John, you who were a student in this college from September, 1937, to July, 1939, your name is written indelibly on the scroll of eternity. M. F. RUSSELL — a boy whose love of country must not be confused with blind, youthful enthusiasm. He entered the armed forces fully aware of his likely fate but determined to serve whatever the cost. M. F., you who were a student in the college during the academic year of 1941-42, it is by men like you, men who envision the supreme sacrifice but never quaver, that the flag of liberty will be carried to the mountain peak of lasting victory. STEVE HENRY OATES — the first graduate of our institution to make the supreme sacrifice. A boy with a burning zeal to aid his fellow man through the practice of medicine; one who worked for what he got, and got what he worked for. Steve, you who were a student in this college from Septem- ber, 1937, to June, 1941, as surely as you left a record for friendliness and diligence on the campus and in the com- munity, you have left a record as an unexcelled patriot in the annals of American life. ROBERT D. WARREN, JR. — one who paid with his life for his unwavering belief in the eternal Tightness of the American way of life. Ambitious, but willing to volunteer his services to his country despite early successes in business. Robert, you who were a student in the college during the academic year 1936-1937, you have written your name forever in the clear blue sky of great Americans. BOARD OF REGENTS Mrs. John King Beretta San Antonio, Texas Honorable V. A. Collins Livingston, Texas Honorable M. C. Eidson Luling, Texas Honorable N. S. Harrell Claude, Texas Honorable J. E. Josey Houston, Texas Honorable S. A. Kerr, Jr. Jacksonville, Texas Honorable H. L. Mills Houston, Texas Honorable R. L. Thomas Dallas, Texas Honorable H. A. Turner Austin, Texas Honorable J. G. Ulmer Tyler, Texas RETIRING MEMBERS Honorable W. B. Bates Honorable R. T. Craig Honorable J. E. Hill Houston, Texas Athens, Texas Amarillo, Texas SCENES V- The carving over the entrance designates this as the Stephen F. Austin Building, but to most stu- dents, it is just old " Main. " Stand- ing guard over the rest of the college, it now houses classrooms for both students and WAACS. The simplicity of its Doric archi- tecture symbolizes the higher edu- cational ideals toward which every student strives. V [ A RUSK BUILDING Offspring of old Main is the Thomas }. Rusk demonstration school, which serves as a lab for earnest practice teachers. Besides giving the campus a taste of high school youthfulness, it houses the college library which affords quiet, studious atmosphere for students. GIBBS HALL Symbolic of midnight feasts and too many " nights out, " the girls ' dorm, although now occupied solely by WAACs, is still known as Gibbs Hall. However willing to evacuate their former abode for the young women of the U. S. Army, S. F. A. coeds are looking forward to their future return to Gibbs Hall. And thus it is with the boys ' dormi- tory. It is hard for the former occu- pants to visualize this scene of all-night " bull sessions " and unrestrained gaiety transformed into quiet, rigid routine of the W.A.A.C. administration. But once again " room 305 " will buzz with the clicking of ivory squares and the hep strains of " Well, Git It! " As typical of S. F. A. as apple pie is of America is our beloved Aikman Gym. It is the one building that has remained untouched and strictly for students. Now both girls and boys receive their physical instruction here, and it has become S. F. A. ' s own recreational center. It is particu- larly historic for the Lone Star Conference championships which have been won here and for the peppy games our Lumberjacks have played. AIKMAN GYM W. R. C Where blue shorts and white tennis shoes used to reign, it ' s now khaki and salutes. But there are still echoes of dancing, basketball, and tumbling classes for S. F. A. ' s coeds. And the private, vice versa, and all-college dances which put the Women ' s recrea- tional Center on the map, will never be forgotten. 1 1 la, •,igiir AttHr •• £2 HOME MANAGEMENT HOUSE The college gets its spicy taste of domesticity from the Home Economics Practice House at the edge of the campus. Preparing the future homemakers of America for their great task, its residents serve a term in every position from cook to hostess and furnish proof of their knowledge in the serving of their well-balanced, beautifully served meals. 14 PRESIDENT ' S HOME In keeping with our president ' s efforts and interest in our curriculum is his home which is a vital part of the campus. This work of white colonial architecture is a true symbol of Southern hospitality and a greeting of " Welcome! " issues forth to citizens, faculty, and student bodv. BAND SHACK Under the baton of Maestro J. T. Cox, band members flock here every Mon- day night for a regular session of prac- tice. This is the seat of the many honors bestowed upon the purple and white aggregation, and its fame origi- nated in this hall. For the duration of the war, however, the band shack has been converted into barracks for the headquarters company of the local WAAC school. COLLEGE FARM Furnishing a bit of local color to the " 40 acres " is the pride of all agriculture majors — the College Farm. In this wholesome environ- ment, the future farmers and dairymen of America put into practice what they learn in theory and make it a thriving, essential element of S. F. A. BIRDWELL FIELD Birdwell Field has not witnessed the usual gay spirit of the students, as football was eliminated from the col- lege sport curriculum this year. How- ever, it has not been idle, but has been the scene of both the boys ' and girls ' calisthenics classes. ADMINISTRATION DR. D. D. GILES Dean of the Junior Division Through his continued service and hearty efforts to the school, Dr. Giles has been an inspiration to both students and faculty of Stephen F. Austin. One of his most important duties is acting as armed service representative for the men students of the college. This has won him much praise and admiration from the boys. 1 ELLIS M. SOWELL Registrar Friendly Ellis M. Sowell is well known on the campus for his sincere and straightforward attitude in contacts with the stu- dents. Courteous and kindly, Mr. Sowell is a gentleman in the true sense of the word. An outstanding scholar in his field, Mr. Sowell is a credit to the college and his department. MR. J. H. WISELY Auditor Mr. Wisely capably handles the finances for the college. He is a kind and willing adviser, a friend to all, and deserves hjs title as the " campus ' busiest man. " His ability to assist students with their financial difficulties deserves much praise. Dr. A. W. Birdwell, educator, counselor, scholar, and friend, is a man whose name is engraved in the hearts of all who have come in contact with Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College. Technically, president emeritus is his present title, but he is still as much a part of the college as ever. He has been with our school since its founding in 1923 and was president of the college until the fall semester of 1942. He is still a member of the faculty and is very active on our campus. Although he is known and admired nationally, Dr. Birdwell ' s greatest and most appreciative audience is the alumni and students of S.F.A.; and so we salute our teacher, and most of all, our friendl ROY H.

At the first of the spring semester a general assembly was held for the purpose of pre- senting the candidates. Their names appeared on a ballot at a general student election. The student body voted and chose by a majority the winner for Miss S. F. A. There was a run-off for Mr. S. F. A. between two of the candidates. Votes were counted by an impartial student-faculty committee. THE BEAUTIES Different organizations nominated someone as their choice as most beautiful girl of S. F. A. The pictures of the eleven nominees were sent to the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station, and 4000 cadets selected them in the order they appear. WHO ' S WHO Fifteen students were selected by a student-faculty committee on the basis of their char- acter, leadership, scholarship, extra-curricular activities. HIGHEST RANKING SENIORS The three highest ranking seniors were determined by their record as it appeared in the Registrar ' s office, and their average was compiled by that office.

A senior student majoring in English, Mrs. Nelson will receive her degree in August. Nacogdoches ' s FRANCES RHYMES chose commerce as the cor- rect major since she is secretary-treasurer of both the College Commission and the Amities. She goes in for journalism insofar as she is a Pine Log reporter and associate editor of the annual. Besides being active in both her Junior and extra-curricular activities, Frances holds down a position of secretary to an important business concern and is president of the college class at the Methodist Church. HOWELL OWENS of Nacogdoches, who received his degree in 1942, did post-graduate work in Agriculture and Biology and was very capable as lab assistant in the biology department.

MOZELLE WILLIS from Woodville, senior majoring in biology, holds the honored position of president of Alpha Chi. She is also president of the Chemistry Club, and was head of Gibbs Hall Council during its existence. Mozelle is very active in the Wo- man ' s Council of which she is now secretary, in the Motor Corps, the B. S. U., and in the Spanish Club.

STANFORD McKEWEN ATHLETIC DIRECTOR R. H. SHELTON The season 1942-43 brought great changes in the athletic set-up at Stephen F. Austin. The armed forces had begun a steady drain upon the manpower oi the college, a drain which increased with every month. First casualty oi the campus was football which was dropped for the duration of the war before the fall term began. Intercollegiate tennis and golf had been discontinued the year before by the Lone Star Conference. In order to prepare the men already in school for the physical needs of the armed forces, the athletic council of the college planned an extensive program of physical training and intramural sports. For the first time in history the entire physical plant of the college was devoted to building up the ordinary student Through the untiring efforts of Stanford McKewen, R. H. Shelton, W. W. Dossey, and V. R. Glazener, the men of the college were given planned calisthenics, following Navy methods, for at least three hours each week, and most men participated in the intramural program. In the fall, R. H. Shelton, head coach and athletic director, made the announcement that Stanford McKewen would handle the purple and white cagers for the coming season. No basketball novice, McKewen had starred under Shelton in the early thirties and had been connected with coaching and teaching since graduation. Taking a green set of men, consisting of two lettermen, three junior college transfers, and several transfers, McKewen molded his men into a smooth-working quintet which finished second in the conference. They had the distinc- tion of being one of two conference teams to defeat the champion North Texas Eagles. The Lumberjacks were easily the second-best team in the LSC and showed promise of going on to bigger things the next season. All but one man was eligible for another year of play. ROSS SMELLEY Nacogdoches SOUTHWEST TEXAS BOBCATS The Lumberjacks hit the road for the first two conference games of the season, making the long trip to San Marcos to split with the ' Cats, 56-41 and 40 39. Tatum. Cat guard, won the first encounter but the fighting Lumbermen came back to win the second night in an overtime battle. Die sank a free throw to break a deadlock. NORTH TEXAS EAGLES The fast moving Eagles put on a scoring spurt to down the ' Jacks in the first game of the series; but McKewen ' s men, led by tall J. D. Shepperd, iced the second game in the fading seconds, 52-40. It was the first loss of the season for the Eagles. With the score tied at 42-42, Shepperd dropped in a sensational one-handed push shot, and then followed with a free throw. The ' Jack attack featured Shepperd and Johnston and the ace ' Jack floor- men, Kennedy and Neil). EAST TEXAS LIONS Continuing their policy of losing the first game and win- ning the second, the Axmen split with East Texas in Com- merce, 49-42, 50-51. Norris Birdwell, ' Jack center, played HAROLD NEILL only a few minutes of the first game because of a broken Cushing hand. Sharpshooting Alton Johnston dropped 31 points through the net in two games to spark the drive. SAM HOUSTON BEARKATS Sam Houston won their second victory in history in Aikman Gym, 51-49, in the last minute of the first game, but the Axmen piled up an imposing lead in the second to win, 55-48. Gaining a 50-30 margin in the third quarter, the ' Jacks coasted to win easily. Johnston was high for the night, driving his season ' s total to 147 points. Because of travel difficulties SFA and Southwest Texas were the only conference teams to play a full schedule. PAT NASH Silsbee RAY DIE Silsbee CLAY KENNEDY Kilgore NORRIS BIRDWELL Hooks J. D.

Competition during the year was mostly between the team members. The thinly-clads made only two meets this year, the Texas Relays in April and the conference meet in May at San Marcos, at which the ' Jacks finished third with 22 points. KENNETH CARIKER Gary W. D. THAMES Lufkin S3 CLAUDE BANKS Nacogdoches MITCHELL JETTON Center ALBERT COLLIER Palestine PHYSICAL FITNESS PROGRAM Working on the premise lhat men now in college should pre- pare themselves for the rigors of military life ahead, the SFA physical litness program took a group of ill-conditioned boys, and through hard work, calis- thenics, cross-country running, track, competitive sports, and other conditioners, hardened them physically. Probably the best activity of all was the three hours of mass exercise given three days each week. Directed by Stanford Mc- Kewen, the workouts hardened soft muscles and gave the men much needed endurance. Pat terned on the Navy system. SFA ' s P. E. classes became that in fact. Although they hate to do it, most SFA boys recognize the worth of this fine program. Men in enlisted reserves were worked on especially. Some at- tention was given to military drill to promote discipline. ■Hi TORTURE Commonly known as " side- falling-on-the-left-arm. " Exercises such as this were an integral part of the tri weekly calisthenics program. BEND Calisthenics and physical training replaced most intercolle- giate sports at SFA this year. " Bends " such as pictured here made boys want football rein- stated. SIX INCHES UP After nine months of practice, SFA boys found this exercise easier, but not very much easier.

A Marine team composed of Carter, Lowery, and Gaston also took the reserve track meet. 1943 MOST SUCCESSFUL YEAR FOR INTRAMURAL SPORTS Intramural sports were strongly emphasized along with the physical fitness program at Stephen F. Austin in 1943. Com- petition was held in basketball, track, volleyball, and softball. Along this line, the gym— with all forms of equipment— was available to all students during the day, night, or week-ends. Intramural competition took on a wartime note with most teams entered being from the enlisted reserves. Army. Marine. Army Air Corps, Navy Air Corps, and two other Navy teams participated. The war in which we are now engaged demands that women, along with men in the services and war industries, must take a full partnership in the struggle. In the light of this demand, the physical education program oi our college has been revised to place increased emphasis on the development oi endurance, strength, flexibility, relaxation, and body control. The girls that are in this physical fitness class will assure you that nothing has been left undone to secure these objectives.

To mention every one who has helped to make this book possible would be an endless task, but to those who have done the smallest bit, the staff sincerely thanks you. There are those " faithful ones, " however, who have always been on hand, to whom I wish to express my deepest appreciation.
