Birdwell, president emeritus, is still a beloved figure on our campus. His many years of service are appreciated by faculty and student body alike; and he is still our teacher and friend. Miss Ruth Mays, former Spanish teacher and at one time dean of women at S. F. A., will always be remembered for her devoted serv- ice here. Retiring in 1943, she had been with us for twenty years. W. A. Cain, former professor of education, took up his duties in that department in 1926 and retired November 26, 1943. His friendly nature and dry wit endeared him to all his students and friends. Miss Jessie Hickman began in 1924 and until January 26, 1944, devot- ed her time to teaching shorthand and typing. Her presence is great- ly missed at Stephen F. Austin. As manager of the bookstore, J. V. Dean, not pictured, supplied the needs of the students from 1924 until June 1, 1943. His willing helpfulness and efficiency are missed on the " forty acres.

INDICATE VOIR CHOICF w mm prop inw J 9 Pine fiu nA, 2mda J.cma Myita Ann latime R talwd Pierce Attractive and dignified MYRTA ANN LATIMER has added much to SFA in the three years she has been here. Myrta Ann holds the offices of president of the Baptist Student Union, secretary of the Woman ' s Council, and reporter for the Lumberjackettes, also being elected that club ' s Stone Fort beauty this year. She is a member of the Inter- national Relations Club and the Pine Log staff. A junior student from Garrison, Myrta Ann is double-majoring in English and elementary education. JOY BELL DIE, charming wife of handsome Marine Lieutenant Ray Die, is a junior student from Nacogdoches, majoring in mathematics. Joy ' s intellectual ability is evidenced in the fact that she has been elected " Best Girl Student " two years in succession and is secretary of Alpha Chi for ' 44. She also is very active in extracurricular activities, for she is director of the College Orchestra, proof reader and poll director on the Pine Log Staff, vice-president of the Junior Class, and organizations editor of the Stone Fort, 1944. She is a member of the Pine Burrs and Press Club. Mai Ma Nacogdoches ' MRS. MODENA NELSON has made an admirable record at SFA during her four years here with us, making " all A ' s " and belonging to Alpha Chi honor society. She received her BA. degree in English last August and is now studying for her Master ' s Degree. This is Mrs. Nelson ' s second year to be named to Who ' s Who. A senior student from Lufkin, Ensign NED BARRETT has been active in SFA ' s affairs since he transferred here from North Texas Agricultural College, Arlington, his sophomore year. Blond and handsome Ned was elected senior class favorite. During the fall semester Ned served the Royal Order of the Austinites as secretary-treasurer. He holds the rank of Ensign in the United States Naval Reserve and upon completion of his pre-dental work at SFA entered Houston Dental College to con- tinue his studies. One of the most versatile girls on the campus is MARGIE PARTIN, junior English major from Nacogdoches. Margie is the highly efficient and successful editor of the Pine Log for 1943-44. Her ability as a journalist is a great asset to SFA, and she is student representative on the College Publications Committee. Margie also participates in the campus social organizations as president of the Press Club, College Commission representative for the Pine Burrs, and a member of Inter- national Relations Club. Pretty PEGGY WRIGHT, wife of Lieutenant Tom Wright of the Anti- Aircraft Corps, combines beauty with ability. Mrs. Wright possesses a lovely voice which may account for the fact that she is majoring in music. A senior student from Nacogdoches, she is president of the Amities, president of the Choral Club, and a member of the Woman ' s Council. Peggy was chosen by the Austinites as their 1944 Stone Fort beauty. From Cushing comes AULINE CORNELIUS, a senior who will graduate this summer. Auline has a double major of mathematics and commerce and now holds a position in the auditor ' s office. She is also active in club activities and is reporter and historian for the Future Teachers of America and college commission representative of Alpha Chi. Auline has made the honor roll every semester since she has been enrolled in Stephen F. Austin. One of the leaders of varied activities on the campus is FAIRY BROWN, a senior from Nacogdoches, who receives her B.A. degree in English this May. This talented miss is reporter for the Pine Burrs, secretary- treasurer of the Senior Class, society editor of the Pine Log, and a mem- ber of the Press and International Relations clubs. Despite the trials and hardships of putting out an annual during wartime, Fairy has been the capable and successful editor of the 1944 STONE FORT. Although participating in so many activities, Fairy has not neglected her studies and was elected president of Alpha Chi for 1944. 9a Ame lcaa fyaiu XAitiei and G Ue -i BETH WILLIAMSON, senior student from Nacogdoches, received the honor this year of being the first girl to be elected as president of the student body. She has taken an active part in many student affairs, serving as secretary-treasurer of the Amities, president of the Lumber- jackettes, and faculty editor of the Stone Fort. Beth is a member of Alpha Chi, Woman ' s Council, and P. W. R. A., winning that club ' s highest honor — the sweater award. She was elected senior class favor- ite this year also. This Business Administration major is a member of the Library staff. This is Beth ' s second year to be elected to Who ' s Who. Making Who ' s Who for the second year is FRANCES RHYMES, of Nacogdoches, who received her B.A. degree in commerce in January. Frances was a popular member of the seniors and a member of the Amities and Lumberjackettes and College Commission representative for the Press Club. Frances is now working in the auditing department of the Navy at the nation ' s capital, Washington, D. C. From San Augustine, Texas, comes MAURIE HICKS, a blonde senior, who is majoring in home economics. Maurie is evidently quite talented in the domestic arts, as she was elected prexy of the Ellen H. Richards Club. Maurie also served as reporter of the Woman ' s Council. MEMBERS OF WHO ' S WHO are selected from the Junior, Senior, and Graduate classes on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership, and participation in extracurricu- lar activities. MRS.

The Forester Club, founded by an enterprising group of young men, was created to establish a more fraternal relationship and to found an organization which will be an asset to the social life of S. F. A. S. T. C. Although the Foresters are a young organization, they have gained recognition as a leading social club on the campus. May Forester honor never cease in the history of S. F. A!

Teachers colleges throughout Texas were faced with the same problems as were our coaches here at S. F. A. As a result of difficulties, our team played various high schools in the East Texas area and won a 3-to-l game victory over Sam Houston State Teachers College. Lumberjack tradition was once again upheld as our small group of men and supporters romped over their opponents for a suc- cessful wartime season. T R Charles Cooper Gene Stewart Gail Cuculic Johnny Long TRACK Fleetfooted Lumberjacks pictured below represent S. F. A. ' s 1944 track team, capably coached by ver- satile Stan McKewen. The group participated in such State events as the Fort Worth Meet and the Texas Relays at Austin. Although the little band of ' Jack men did not come through with decisive vic- tories, Stephen F. Austin was once again placed upon the map in the field of major athletic events.

Home Owned and Home Operated The above is a picture of one of the coaches now being operated by Airline Motor Coaches and a number of the older drivers who are still with us, rendering as noble a work as that being done by any group of workers found anywhere. Some of these drivers have been driving buses for Airline Motor Coaches for thirteen years. All of them have been working for the company for more than six years and we are proud to say that none of these drivers has ever had a serious accident — a record of which we are justly proud and a record that takes something besides luck to accomplish. HOUSTON NACOGDOCHES « SHREVEPORT TYLER • BEAUMONT It is always with much pleasure and interest that the stockholders of Airline Motor Coaches, Ino., work with all of the business interests of East Texas. We have always taken the greatest of care to see that Nacogdoches and the entire territory from which Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College gets its students have the very best transportation facilities that are in our power to give. In normal times it has been a reat privilege to not only trans- port the students to and from their homes but to take care of the move- ments of the athletic clubs at all times in a way that has not only been a credit to ourselves but in a way that has put a good taste in the mouths of the students who come to our fair city. V. ' e know that the acts of the students who are now in service will bring much glory to the oollege and East Texas when the facts come home to us as to how they are actually conducting thenselves in the theaters of war. We are proud of Dr. Boynton and his entire faculty for the fine work that they have done. It is because of the interest in the stu- dents that has been taken by these fine educators that they have al- ways and will continue to become the finest citizens that it is pos- sible for any students to become. Because of the fine records that have been made by those in service now from the Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College, we oan look forward to this influence in the future bringing a tremendous number of students from various parts of East Texas to our school. We think that Nacogdoches well deserves the nnre of " The Friendly City " because of the unexcelled efforts of the entire citizenship to let this be known to strangers who come our way by accounts of friendliness that are manifested on the street corners p.nd public places at all times. We are giving the students of the college at this time over the conditions under which we are laboring the very best in transportation that it is possible to have with manpower and equipment shortages that exist here as elsewhere. When we have finally won the present struggle that we are so deeply engaged in, it will be possible, we are hoping, to put into servioe new equipment manned with personnel that will be fitting to the accommodations of the great public that we are so pleased to serve. When it is possible for Airline lootor Coaches to help any member of the faculty or any members of the student body in any way, we shall only be glad for them to call upon us. We hope above everything else that before another annual is pub- lished, that we will have all our fine boys and girls back with us gain. C. D.

SHRADER Jeweler Best Wishes to Your 1944 Class A te The STONE FORT, a deep tradition on the " forty acres " of S. F. A., has diminished in size but not in value. It is with this value in mind that we have tried to give to you certainly not a complete record but a brief reminder of the days at S. F. A. in 1943-1944. In the days to come, after victory is won, perhaps this annual will remind you not of a year of sacrifice and tur- moil, but of one well spent in the quest of knowledge and of pleasant activities. To the student body and to the follow- ing, I express my deepest appreciation for your cooperation in making this yearbook a possibility: Martha Condra Dr. C. F.
