MILLS HOUSTON HONORABLE WALTER WOODUL HOUSTON HONORABLE Win. L. KERR AUSTIN HONORABLE V. A. COLLINS PRESIDENT PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE Man s optimism leads him not only to extremes of judgment but also to emo- tional i e erses. Of course, we do not want to surrender that optimism because a world of dour pessimists would yield few incentives for full, wholesome living. Optimism is essential. If we are going to derive the greatest benefits from it, lu) e er, we must season it adequately and well with realism. Only a few years ago we heard the cry that everything would be " all right " as soon as the war was over. Now that the war is over we find the most dangerous upsurge of pernicious ideologies society has ever seen. The very foundations of human freedom and individual rights are being attacked by those with the voice of Jacob but the hands of Esau. You, the students not only of this College but of all other colleges, are being urged into a bacchanalian revelry of " isms " which, though they paint an optimistic future, can lead but to the destruction of democ- racy and the debauch of individual rights. We hope and trust that those of you who have been with us at Stephen F. Austin have learned to be alert to deceptive creeds, to be discriminative academi- calh ' , socially, economically, and morally, to be committed to fundamental rather than temporary or superficial human needs, and to be cognizant of the fact that that which is truly worthwhile can and will come only if the most capable mem- bers of our society equip themselves to lives of careful, thoughtful, diligent, un- remitting service. We have enjoyed the year with you, and we trust that your own years whict) be ahead will prove this to have been one of growth, of under- standing and an appreciation of the nature, rights, needs, and obligations of your- self and your fellow man. DR. PAUL L. BOYNTON Dean of the College Dr. T. E. Ferguson, Dean of the College since 1923, has proved himself not only an efficient school adminis- trator, but also a civic leader, wise counselor, and valued friend. His unfailing courtesy, sportsmanship, warm human sympathy, and understanding of student prob- lems hav e endeared him to the hearts of all. Dr. D. D. Giles, Dean of the Junior Division, helps to meet and overcome the intricate problems of school routine with his rare patience and understanding. In his capacity as dean and veterans ' counselor, his brisk good humor helps to make him one of the most loved personalities on the campus. Mr. Joe D. Lacy is entrusted with .administering the finances of our college. In his role as business man- ager, he has firmly established himself by his unchang- ing, democratic efficiency, and has made himself a source of inspiration to both faculty and student body. Business Manager Registrar Registrar, Miss Mary I. Love, heads an organization that serves as historian for every college student ' s scholastic record. We cannot praise too highly her untiring efforts as Registrar, nor can we adequately express our appre- ciation of her willingness to give help wherever it is needed. Mr. C. E. Ferguson, Dean of Men, is the capable direc- tor of men ' s activities on the campus. He has become one who fits so exactly and so properly into our scheme of things that we, in terms of both affection and respect, now refer to him simply as " one of us. " Miss Mary Thomson, Dean of Women, performs the task of being a mother to every girl of the college, directing their activities, settling their problems, and looking out for their general welfare. Miss Thomson has been more than just a dean, she has been the friend, advisor, and sympathizer of all the students in college. Dean of Women PRESIDENT EMERITUS DR. A. W.

DIRECTOR OF DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL Serving as director of the Demonstration School since 1927, Mr. J. J. Wilson has been largely responsible for the growth of that institution. He has shown his ability to manage the school in an efficient, yet pleasant way, and thereby has won for himself a host of friends and good wishes.

To the upperclassman, it is just a hard day ' s work. Getting a class schedule and schedule card, arranging classes only to have them re-arranged by faculty members if the student has to stand in line too long before getting signed up for a class, obtaining the final okay, filling out a card at every step :; Methodist NOT FOR THE ARMY . . . up and down the main line, waiting outside the book store is a hard job in any man ' s school. These shots were taken during registration for the fall semes- ter. Here we see faculty members and students just as they appeared. This is the place where many a person has said, " Here is where my papa ' s money goes, " as he forked over a $37.00 registration fee. And this is the place where few of the many would like to get their books and go home instead of spending more time. RUSH WEEK The one week in the school year when everyone gets enough of parties is Rush Week. The significance of all the festivities is to show the new students that they can attend social gather- ings at night and still meet classes the following day. The 1946 fall semester rush week turned out to be a; fine occasion for all. The enrollment of the college exceeded that of former years and all the clubs wanted to get the " cream of the crop. " The old members of the boys ' clubs smiled continuously, patted backs, and served coffee and cigars to the beaming candi- RUSH WEEK dates for pledgeship. All the gatherings were glorified bull- sessions; but the Sawyers and Austinites named theirs " smokers, " while the Foresters had a poker party. 1 The girls ' social clubs also had bull-sessions which the Pine Burrs called a tea; the Fideles, a ranch party; and the Amities a cocktail party. At all the functions, the young ladies smiled their best and acted very charmingly. By the end of the week, all the candidates had enough tea, coffee, and cigars to last until the next semester, and the clubs had incurred debts that would take months to erase. no HOMECOMING.. Once a year Stephen F. Austin celebrates an occasion that is appropriately named Homecoming. It is the one time that the old students may return and flaunt their success in the eyes of the callow youngsters who are still struggling to get an edu- cation. Homecoming ' 46 fell on as nice a day as one could wish. The student organizations had planned the day so that none of the Exes would have a dull moment. It was a beautiful after- noon and all the Exes had a chance to tell of their wilder days and condemn the present day scholars for their apathy and lack of fire. The students, in turn, wondered how such a bunch of old fogies ever make a decent living. I, AN EVENTFUL DAY. Dances, meetings, and dinners made the afternoon inter- esting, and the only damper to the spirit of the festivities was the loss of a football game that evening. Everyone had so much fun reviving old acquaintances that it was not given too much thought. After the game came the coronation of the Homecoming Queen. Miss Carolyn Muckleroy was regina of the ball, and the dance that followed— lasting until the wee hours of the morn— was a Terpsichorean endeavor that will long be remembered. At the end of the festivities, the weary Exes plodded back home to recuperate and wait for another year— and Homecom- ing—to roll around again. 2. 3. 4.

Various cross-sections of our college life are informally pre- sented. In order to obtain great- er variety, no definite theme per- meates the sections, but we trust that the continuity of our daily contacts and activities is in no wise impaired by the lack of a theme. Let a simple expression convey my sincere appreciation for the privilege of editing this publication. ' Thanks a million, " faculty, students, and staff, for your cooperation, diligence, and interest. Annually yours. CAROLYN MUCKLEROY, EDITOR THE 1947 STONE FORT if ¥m mm.
