A. W. BIRDWELL President Emeritus For the past half century Dr. Birdwell ' s life has been dedicated to improv- ing the minds of the young people of Texas. He has been recognized for years as one of the leading educators of the country. The success of his students in all walks of life attests to his worth. He is loved and respected by both teachers and students of Stephen F. Austin and the school itself is a monument to his work. IN TRIBUTE MR. R. G. UPTON His was a life devoted to the pursuit of truth. He disagreed with many in his conception of truth but was fair and honest. He was loyal to his friends and the school. He fought for the principles of professional justice and labored incessantly for the betterment of human welfare. His personality and services will be missed on our campus.

Texas OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT The year 1947-48 has been a good one at Stephen F. Austin. In fact, it probably has been the best year, all things considered, that the college has had. You, the students and faculty who have been here at this time, have made it a good year. Naturally, we do not say that it has been perfect. Few things are perfect, espe- cially things which are composed of, and operated by human beings. There have been some disappointments, some wasted opportunities, and even some misuse of both opportunities and capacities. Yet, looked at from an overall point of view, these have been relatively few. So we hope that as you look back in future years you will see this as a time in which you drank deeply from the wells of the world ' s great knowledges; lived fully and wholesomely with your fellow students; and thought clearly and well on the great verities which make and have made this a great nation, and ours a great people. DEAN OF COLLEGE DR. T. E. FERGUSON Although Dean Ferguson occupies a position in the col- lege that keeps him very busy, he always has time to talk with a student and help him thrash out his problems however small. Besides being an efficient school administrator, he is also head of the English Department, and is a wise counselor. He has many friends in the student body and is beloved by all for his warm human qualities. DEAN OF THE JUNIOR DIVISION DR. D. D. GILES Dr. Giles has filled the position of Dean of the Junior Division since the Spring of 1943. He has proven himself a very capable administrator by helping overcome intricate problems of school routine. In addition to these duties, he is also on the advisory council and a professor of agriculture. DEAN OF WOMEN MISS MARY THOMPSON The young women of this college have been guided by the hand of Miss Mary Thompson since 1945. Intellectually, morally, religiously and socially, this adopted mother of the girls has been a strong influence for better living in the college. She is a friend to all; her rare patience and under- standing making Ker one of the most loved personalities on the campus. DEAN OF MEN MR. R. H. SHELTON Having served as Coach and Athletic Director for twenty- three years at this college, Mr. Shelton assumed the duties of Dean this year. His past experience with boys has enabled him to become a capable and outstanding director of men ' s activities on the campus. Often referred to as " Coach, " Mr. Shelton has a warm understanding of problems confront- ing college students, a quality which makes him " one of us. " BUSINESS MANAGER MR. JOE D. LACY As Business Manager of the college, Mr. Lacy spends many extra hours giving his personal attention to the innumerable details connected with the finances of the institution. He has helped many students with their pecuniary difficulties and is always ready to lend a hand when needed. DIRECTOR OF STUDENT EMPLOYMENT AND PLACEMENT BUREAU W. F. GARNER As the result of his success in placing graduates of this college, Mr. Garner has hundreds of friends scattered through- out Texas and surrounding states. He has been very efficient in helping students find part-time jobs and through his willing- ness to help has made many friends among students. Besides these duties, he also serves as head of the History and Govern- ment Department. DIRECTOR OF CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION DR. C. H. OSBORNE Under Dr. Osborne, the Extension Department has enrolled many non-resident students in courses offering credit toward a college degree. At present, in addition to his many duties as Director of Correspondence and Extension, Dr. Osborne finds time to instruct classes in English. REGISTRAR MISS MARY I. LOVE Since 1943, Miss Love has been entrusted with the duties of registrar. Every student who has taken his registration difficulties to the office appreciates Miss Love ' s efficient service and friendly welcome. In addition to these duties, Miss Love teaches classes in History. DEPARTMENTAL HEADS C. E. FERGUSON, M.A. Department of Mathematics ft k FLOYD A. POLLOCK, Ph.D. Department of Sociology WM. T.

They were judged by five news- paper editors from the surrounding towns who were unacquainted with any of the contestants. The beauties were announced and presented at the Stone Fort Ball. WHO ' S WHO The students honored by mention in Who ' s Who were selected by a student-faculty committee. They were judged on character, leadership, scholarship, and participation in extra-curricular activities. CLASS FAVORITES The favorites were elected in class meetings with each of the classes electing a boy and girl favorite. The exception came in the Freshman class where two girls tied for the honor. MR. AND MISS S.F.A. Names of qualified junior or senior candidates, who were petitioned by 25 signed voters, appeared on a ballot at a general student election. The student body voted and chose the winners. Votes were counted by an impartial student-faculty committee. CAROLYN THOMPSON HILL AWARD The winner of this award was selected by the Student Affairs Committee on the basis of scholar- ship, leadership, strength of character, and loyalty to the college. SCHOLARSHIP The two highest ranking seniors were determ ined by their record as it appeared in the Registrar ' s office, their average being compiled by that office. AUSTINITE POLL Each year the Poll sponsors a personalities election and the students choose the outstanding campusites by ballot. PERSONALITIES Mr. S. F. A. M ss S. F. A. Fcruor tes Beauties MR. S.

JEFFERIES STANFORD McKEWEN JOE GALLAGHER HAROLD FISCHER Although the first part of the 1947 football season was heart-breaking to the Lumberjacks, their head coach and athletic director, Ted L. Jefferies, maintained indefatigable courage, sportsmanship, and undoubted ability which resulted in vic- tory for the team in the latter part of the season. Assistant athletic director, assistant football coach, head basketball and ten- nis coach is Stanford McKewen, an ex-Lumberjack captain and all-conference football player. Having lettered in football, tennis, and basketball makes him a qualified centerpiece in the athletic department. Coaching the 1947 Lone Star Conference championship baseball team, the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, was Joe Gallagher, former big league baseball player. Coach Gallagher served his first year here winning the LSC champion- ship without losing a conference game. Besides being head baseball coach, Mr. Gallagh er is in charge of ticket sales, programs, and sports publicity. Au outstanding football letterman in high school and in the University of Texas is Harold Fischer, assistant football and head track coach. Coach Fischer made all-conference in 1945 while playing with the Longhorns, coached at Cisco High School two years, and is serving his first year in the Lumberjack camp. LEO ANGER BACK V 1 dm Hi ' " ' ' ■ f : - Captain Lloyd Coach Jefferies THEO MILES BACK CAPTAIN HAROLD LLOYD Ranking with the best guards in the Lone Star Conference Harold Lloyd, senior from Silsbee, finished his football career here in a blaze of glory against the Sam Houston Bearkats. Har- old was a great team play- er, a natural athlete, and a lover of the game of foot- ball. A two-year letterman, Captain Lloyd has been one of the mainstays of the Jacks ' line.

Brilliant pass interceptions and long runs by Douglas Samford and James (Dusty) Due, a 15-yard touchdown sweep by Leo Anger and the scintillating Anger ' s 16-yard peg to Bill Nichols accounted for Aus- tin ' s scoring.

F. A. R U H K To those who do not know, Rush Week is six consecutive days in which the Freshman and non-Social Club member is the object of undivided attention by social clubs on the campus. The clubs do what is com- monly known as " puttin ' on the dog " in their effort to show the prospective pledges that their particular club is the best. This page presents a pictorial survey of the clubs at their best. HOMECOMING 47 What can easily be considered as the outstanding event of the fall se- mester was the 1947 Homecoming. The stage was set by Mayor " Whi- tey " Thompson, who proclaimed the Friday and Saturday of Homecoming Week as Lumberjack days. By Fri- day night and the big pep rally everyone had gotten into the mood for a first class celebration — and they got it. The log started rolling with a parade, which was not the longest the town had seen, but one of the best. The returning Ex ' s, all twelve hundred of them, spent the remainder of the morning in the hall of the Main building. Highlighting the day was a 25-14 victory over the University of Houston Cougars. A point to mention is the fact that it is the first ' Tack victory in Memorial Stadium. The clubs took over after the game and served up three hours of entertain- ment until time for the dance. A capacity crowd filled the Aikman Gym for the dance and all were properly impressed as President of the Student Body James Danheim crowned Genell Godley Queen of Homecoming. — Students, faculty, Ex ' s, and visitors trooped wearily homeward well satisfied. CHRISTMAS 1 9 4 7 A VISIT FROM SANTA Adaptations by Jack V. Smith ' Twas the night before Christmas and all through the college The students were sleeping content in their knowledge That stockings were hung by the chimney with care And jolly St. Nicholas soon would be there. The boys at the dorm were asleep in their beds While visions of coeds danced through their heads. The girls down at Gibbs had just closed their yaps And jumped in their beds for their usual naps. When out through the pine trees there rose such a clatter I called for a frosh to see what was the matter. I was too scared to talk and was trembling with fear. I was frightfully scared that the Bearcats were here. The rain on the mud in the gutter below Made me wish for the moon on some new-fallen snow. When what to my wondering eyes did appear But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer; And a little old driver so lively and guick That the freshman decided that he was St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came And he whistled and shouted and called them bad names. He gave a good whipping to Dancer and Vixen And splattered some acid on Donder and Blitzen. To the top of the porch where three of them fell And he kicked them and whipped them and cussed them like hell. By coaxing and pleading in language guite warm He finally got them on top of the dorm. Around on the dorm top his reindeer they flew; The sleigh lights were lit and St. Nicholas, too. And then in a twinkling I heard overhead Noise and commotion to waken the dead. While the freshman was trying to find us a gun, Down the hall St. Nicholas came on the run. He was dressed all in furs from his feet to his head. He looked sort of shot and was pretty near dead. Four cases of whiskey he had on his back And he looked like a bootlegger opening his pack. His eyes were all fuzzy; his dimples were frowzy; His nose was like blood; his complexion Was lousy; His breath was a mixture of bourbon and wine, And I knew he stopped for a while at the Line. A dirty cigar he had stuck in his face, And the way that it smelled was an utter disgrace. He had a broad face and a gosh-awful belly That shook when he coughed like a tub full of jelly. He was more than just plump; I would say he was fat; Drunk as a Sawyer and wet as a rat. He reeled when he walked and his manners were rude. I could tell at a glance he was thoroughly stewed. He spoke not a word but went straight to his work, Gave out the presents and turned like a jerk, And wiping his nose with his hand and sleeve, He spat on the floor and started to leave. He crawled in his sleigh and I heard Santa sneeze As Nick, sleigh and reindeer took off through the trees. But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, " Merry Christmas to all, it ' s a J, and good night.
