AUSTIN STATE COLLEGF HACOGDOCHES . TEXAS AT ...STEPHEN F. AUSTIN ti New Boys ' Dormitory From tha t very first turbulent day in September, otherwise known as Registration, until more confusion with mid - year examinations in January, a resourceful student body on the SFA campus provided ample entertainment for itself. This included everything from masquerade balls, picnics, parades, and pep rallies to kangaroo court, basketball and foot- ball games. And last, but not least — Bearkat Day! Just a stroll across the campus would have been incomplete without a pause to watch the progress of a forestry class cutting down an East Texas pine. Rush parties, in such varied forms as hayrides and teas, made the annual Rush-Week memorable. It may have been turmoil in September, but it was the be- ginning of a great year at SFA. Ill Forestry Class Bookstore Football Game Basketball Game J[ Record of... Stephen F. Austin began its first classes twenty-five years ago in borrowed rooms at the Nacogdoches High School. Its sole build- ing at that time was a small shack situated on the high school campus. Today, ex-students of only two or three years will be amazed at the growth of the physical plant of the college. One main addition to the college facilities is the athletic field including the stadium seating 6,000 spectators. New buildings will be noticed on every hand, the two newest being another men ' s dormitory and the Student Union Building. w APIECE £ Kangaroo Court Picnic Band on Parade Pep Rally Christmas Dinner-Dance ...AND ...PERSONALITIES, ACTIVITIES Women ' s Recreational Center Aikman Gymnasium Fall Faculiy-Sludent Reception IN THE SPRING, FALL AND New Swimming Pool In the fall, we started off with the annual Faculty-Student Reception which formallY opened the new Student Union Building. Then, it was Football, v ith pep rallies, team send-offs, and the football games themselves. The Presentation Ball in early- December was the long-awaited moment when class favorites, campus beauties, and Mr. and Miss SFA were presented. After that the social season went into full swing with organization-sponsored dances leading the parade of varied college life. Fifteen shopping days ' til Christmas found us in a whirl of formal dinner-dances end- ing with the Austinite all-college dance the last night before holidays began. Student Union Building Popular spring festivities were the Valentine Dance, Bowery Ball, Pie-Night, Apron-Overall dance. Skit Night, and the Spring Festival. In the late spring, we spent every spare moment at our appealing new Swimming Pool — ■ splashing and sunbathing in an effort to relax our over- burdened minds.

How well we remember the integral parts of our year at SFA that have combined to make it a good year — a pro- gressive year — a year that we ' ll never forget. The tradi- tional Freshman Day initiated modest freshmen — minus dignity and pride — into campus life on the Forty Acres. Homecoming, the much anticipated week-end, which hard work makes successful and memorable, is gone — in a flurry of Lumberjack Day, parades and floats, the football game, the receptions for the exes, and the magnificent Coronation Ball. Intramural sports, club meetings. Student Congress meetings, and the highly entertaining club as- semblies are all a part of our SFA . . . Pine Burrs ' Winning Float at Homecoming McKay Gains Yardage in Cougar Territory Freshman Day in Town at S. F. A. . . . Nine months of campus activities and life-long friend- ships. Not just those special occasions when we went on parade in a formal or a bow tie, but everyday happenings — classes, comments on the world situation exchanged over a coke at that miraculous money-making machine in Main, hikes to the Student Union Building whether in rain, sleet, or snow, for hot coffee, a game of dominoes, or a dance or tv o. Yes, we will more than likely forget the term themes, book reports, and book-length examina- tions, but we will be a long time forgetting the walks through the tall pines, the all-college festivities, and the friends we made while living here.

' -- These are the words of our school song as well as the words in the hearts of all Stephen F. Austin stu- dents and faculty. It is a wonderful feeling to watch our College Among the Pines as it grows, both in en- rollment and prestige. In 1923, the first year of the school ' s existence, the initial enrollment totaled 50 students. Today a progressive SFA boasts of 1264 members in the student body, which promises a " future bright. " Cotiee Time Freshmen Serenade Gikbs Hall Girls Wisely Hall The Old Stone Fort Yes, after twenty-five years of service to the citizen- ship of this great region, Stephen F. Austin College has become as integral a part of the vivid history of East Texas, as is The Old Stone Fort, which stands now as a landmark and museum on our beautifully wooded campus. BOARD OF REGENTS Honorable William L. Kerr President Midland, Texas Honorable Newton S. Harrell Vice-President Claude, Texas Mrs. J. K. Beretta San Antonio, Texas Honorable V. A. Collins Livingston, Texas Honorable Melvin C. Eidson Austin, Texas Honorable S. A. Kerr, Jr. Conroe, Texas Honorable H. L. Mills Houston, Texas Honorable R. L. Thomas Dallas, Texas Honorable Walter F. Woodul Houston, Texas Perhaps no man in the teaching profession has as many admirers as A. W. Birdwell. He • DDHCir CKIT has given sound advice to thousands of F K L O I U L I N I young men and young women, and his counsel is still sought by the school people of | E R I T U S East Texas. Dr. Birdwell has often said that he would cross Texas to ser e a friend and his actions have proven this no idle boast. The students and faculty of Stephen F. Austin wish him many more years of useful service to the profession he loves. Dr. a. W. Birdwell Dr. Paul L. Boynton, President TO THE GRADUATES, UNDERGRADUATES, AND FRIENDS OF S F. A. This volume of the STONE FORT presents a recDrd of another year ' s progress, activities, and personalities at Stephen F. Austin State Colleg3. We believe that, taken as a whole, it has been a period of personal growth and intellectual development for the vast majority of the students and faculty. Certainly it is true that we are mos happy to see this fine group of seniors, the largest in the history of our College, achieve the distinction of college graduation. For each of you who is leaving with our highest award, a standard academic degree, we hope and trust that future years will be arduous, profitable, developmental, interesting, and happy. For those still plodding the academic path, we wish " good hunting, " and the persistent drive to surge to even greater heights than your predecessors. DEANS AND STAFF Thomas E.

Austin Ex-Student Association was formed in 1928 and has been in operation since that date. The purpose of this organization is to encourage good fellowship and loyalty among former students and to promote the general interests of our college. The main function of the year for the Ex-Student Association is the Homecoming held each fall during football season. At this time all former students are invited and urged to return to the campus. Meetings of county S.F.A. Clubs are held at various times during the year and are a vital part of the entire program. When students leave the college their best avenue of contact with it is through the Ex-Student ' s Association. An office is maintained at the college to serve as a " clearing house " for information and requests. It is the desire of the Association that each student feel free to call upon this office for service while he is off the campus and to make it his headquarters when visiting his Alma Mater. We, the Senior Class of ' 49, would like to say " Thank You " to Stephen F. Austin College. Thinking back, it hardly seems possible that four years have passed so quickly, that this is our commencement year and our turn to receive a degree, and that, at last, our pictures are in the SENIOR section of the Stone Fort.

Our freshman year is now but a vague memory of purple and white freshman caps; awe-inspir- ing college classes, so very different from our respective high school classes; returning vet- erans overflowing our Forty Acres; a well-worn path through the woods to the " Corner " ; and the wonderful feelings we experienced at our first big pep rally and football game.

We backed our school to the fullest de- gree, although we still had a tendency to stand around and watch the exes as they came to Homecoming in droves, and to wonder at their eagerness to get back each fall to the scene of book reports, term themes, and exams.

By the time we had thirty curriculum, hours to our credit and had the new freshmen shining our shoes, there was no stopping us. We had made many new friends and thought of our dormitories as our second homes. We were going in full speed amidst classes, social clubs, end other campus interests.

We watched with undeniable interest as our campus grew. Agriculture, Music, and Business buildings sprang up all around us. New tennis courts were put in, and best of all, by ' 48, our Swimming Pool was completed. Those of us who attended summer school will agree that what time was not spent in classes was most assuredly spent in the pool. THE First Row: HICKEY, ED, Hallsville; B.S., Agriculture . . .

Martin Editor Stall members search tor " new " ideas THE STONE FORT 1949 The Stone Fort staff has endeavored this year to bring you a book worthy of your approval. If this book fails to enrich your memories and recollections, please restrict your comment to these 26 brow-beaten countenances exhibited on these two pages who furnished the blood, sweat, and tears required for its publication. There was nothing quite like the Stone Fort office during the days when the staff labored over this edition. It was always quiet, of course ■ — even our innumerable staff typewriters were of the muffled variety. Naturally, J. C, our ever- lovin ' Editor, whip-master, slave-driver, — need we say more — rarely ever spoke above his usual soothing tones. Staff members had little trouble in organizing their work, since the fashion this year was to alphabetize the classes. It was a struggle for us to learn the alphabet so late in life, but courageously, we managed! And, then, there were always those ex-officio staff members who so obligingly tip-toed in to offer their services. Oftentimes, we on the staff, could barely open that ole swinging door for the deluge of snapshots that poured in by the thousands. THE PINE LOG STAFF Wayne Wood Editor Jack Wheat . .

In the pic- ture to the right are Alnet Scott, Elizabeth Hudgens, Billy Popham. As the " voice " of the student body, we realize that several times we have been accused of having laryngitis. In an effort to defend ourselves, as v ell as help those who will follow in our footsteps, we hasten to point out a few little-known facts which we hope will be remembered by students in the years to come: the Pine Log office is located in the basement of Main, Room lA; all students are entitled and en- couraged to contribute their stories, advice, and time to this student publication; there is a monster commonly called " deadline " which must be appeased; and typographi- cal errors can be corrected provided that at least one loyal friend of the editor can be found to read proofs. We, the vocal chords of this " voice, " have endeavored to publish the news as we saw it and to provide entertainment for you. We feel that if the efforts expended by the pictured starting line-up have enlightened or enter- tained you, our creative attempts have not been in vain.

THE LUMBERJACK BAND Drum Major Carolyn Mooney ond Director . T. Cox Enthusiastically received during all football and basketball games, the Lumberjack band once again filled a nine months ' calendar of musical activity. Music for pep rallies, booster trips to other towns and schools, numerous parades, concerts, and musical assemblies kept the sixty members constantly on the move. Drum Major Carolyn Mooney; twirlers Bette Summers, Faye Brown, Mary Jo Goodwin; ex- hibition tv irler, Wiggie Hamric; and flag bear- ers Edna Merle Cox and Mary Jean Jetton add- ed beauty and grace to this fast-stepping band of Stephen F. Austin. The fun began with rehearsals in September with 49 mem- bers and Wally Read, the most entertaining element present (when he could make it). October found " Mr. B " tearing his mustache and forgetting how to say anything except, " Let ' s knock off the funny stuff, " and, " Dooit again. " The Choir boasts of nine concerts delivered in good form the week before the Christmas holidays with soprano soloists Francille Roark and Madeline Lilly, baritone Ben- jamin Murdock, and tenor Grady Kyle straining satis- factorily. The sorrows of dischords, flat notes, and silent entrances are all forgotten when we recall the fun we had on the concert tours which started before daybreak — especially the hilarious time we had on the over-night trip to Beau- mont when Lamar Junior College was our host. A CAPFELLA CHOIR Frederick Baumgartner, Director Buddy Ryland The Buddy Ryland band began to take shape two weeks before school began in September. The rehearsals saw four members added to last year ' s crew: Wally Read and Jack Briggs on trumpet, James Dunn on trombone, and Rocky Hampton on tenor. Ryland took this band and worked it on new numbers and shined up the old ones. The work paid off in the form of the band being voted one of the top bands in the nation in tv o leading music magazine polls. The band went to Denton two years and participated in the annual Dance Band Contest for College Bands in the South and took all honors. Members ore Wally Read, Robert Kennerly, Bill Briggs, Jack Briggs, trumpets; Buddy Ryland, Jerry Loveall, Ray Griffin, James Dunn, trombones; Bill Davis, Emmery Webb, Sam Burke, Rocky Hampton, Ray Davidson, saxo- phones; Bill Wallace, piano; Bobby Selden, drums; Bill Ross, bass.

Since their formation in 1325, they have had a major part in all school activities. Upholding the traditional school colors, you ' ll see them sporting new uniforms this year: purple skirts and ties and white blouses. Rushees are always entertained at picnics, and the pledges — well, they ' re — ah — entertained. The pass word is " It ' s a J! " or has it been changed to " Cage the Bearkats " ? The Jackettes are always behind you. Jacks — so keep up the good work!

The Grand Order of Royal Barristers was founded on the democratic tenet that men should be schooled in a sane and systematic type of self-government. It adheres to the rules of parliamentary procedure and strives to teach the budding young politicians of Stephen F. Austin the forms and self-discipline so necessary to the governing bodies of these United States. The school year ' 48- ' 49 has been an exceed- ingly productive one for the Barristers. It saw many heated debates; stirring trials of cases, both civil and criminal; and a strong reinforcement of the Barrister principles. The high points of the Fall semester were the winning of second place on the Homecoming Day float; the trial of the Hon. Paul Wilson for perjury; the trip to hear the President of the United States; and the leception of a trophy from Kennedy ' s Jewelers for " slinging the bull. " Withal, it has been an enjoyable session, and the chambers which have held it will long echo with the president ' s call to order of the oaken gavel.

THE GIBBS HALL COUNCIL— made up of girls elect- ed by their associates for leadership ability, reputa- tion for fair play, and general good nature — attempts to iron out Dormitory difficulties and to promote co- operation among the Dormitory girls to keep " every- body happy. " Proxy Parrish presides to start the ball rolling at council meetings called near the middle of the night whenever the need arises, to discuss general improvements, or in rare instances, a fire- cracker explosion at midnight, or girls who " just couldn ' t say goodnight " by 11. House Mother Rich- ardson, ever promoting the girls ' best interest, adds her peaceful presence to the meetings, and con- tributes helpful suggestions. D. G. Brooks records the happenings of the " highly secretive " meetings and keeps account of finances, while contributions are welcomed from Wing Councilors Duff and Sweeney from Third Floor, Cordell and P. Low from Second, and Plunkett from First. The Council promotes occasional General House Meetings and other activities where all the Dormi- tory girls may participate. Among these are: Coffee introducing Rush Week with all women students and women faculty invited; Kangaroo Court, where the freshmen really " jump " ; Christmas Party with gifts and fun for all; General Gripe Sessions, collecting corrective criticisms of Dormitory conditions; and Picnic-Dance with the boarding boys on the campus as guests. A " Typical Gibbs Hall Room " rolled in the Homecoming Parade, and the Dormitory offered a " fresh-up room " for the convenience of women Ex-Students on Homecoming Day. Activities are faithfully reported to the Pine Log by Reporter M. L. Low together with interesting tid- bits of gossip concerning the popular girls who call Gibbs their college home. In order that posterity may know that Gibbs Hall Girls of 48-49 were definitely " in the news, " Historian Scott keeps a scrap book to which we point with pride. ALPHA CHI The Alpha Chi is a national honor society, whose purpose is to promote and recognize scholarship. The local chapter is named the A. W. Birdwell Chapter in honor of Dr. A. W. Birdwell, President of the col- lege for many years. Members of this organization are chosen from the high ranking students of the junior, senior, and graduating classes, the number in each instance being limited to one-tenth of the mem.bership of each class. Active members are elected in the fall, and graduate members at the spring and summer commencements. Officers for the current year were: Kendall Jennings, President; Charles Boozer, Vice-President; Janie Par- rish, Secretary-Treasurer; Burnis Lawrence, Reporter; T. £. Ferguson, C. F. Sheley, and Mrs. Gladys John- son, Faculty Sponsors. The Baptist Student Union is an organization for Bap- tist students on college campuses throughout the South. The local chapter was organized in 1923 for the purpose of helping the students to find their proper relation with God, to find a place of service in the church, and to find sources of spiritual power for everyday college life. A wide range of activities are incorporated in the program of the Baptist Student Union, such as a Pre- School Retreat, Christmas caroling, a BSU Sweetheart Banquet, a Spring Retreat, and various social func- tions. One of the outstanding events of its 1948-1949 calendar was the State BSU Convention at Waco on October 29-31, which 28 students from Stephen F. Austin attended. Another important part of BSU activity has been the Morning Watch program which met each morning at 7:40 at the Baptist Student Center. Much of the work of the Baptist Student Union is planned by an executive council. Those serving as officers on the council for the 1948-1949 school year are: Ben M. Wallace, President; G. W. Valentine, Enlistment Vice-President; Alnet Scott (Fall) and Von Rae Stevens (Spring), Social Vice-Presidents; Gail Burks (Fall) and Robert Lee Lamb (Spring), Devotional Vice-Presidents; Jane McPhail, Secretary; Curtis Brooks (Fall) and W. L. Bane (Spring), Treasurer; Billie Stewart, Publicity Director; Francille Roark, Music Director; Mary Lois Steed, Pianist; Earlean Mc- Gee, Jimmy Dorsey, and Nyal King, Sunday School Representatives; Jeanette Wolaver, Training Union Representative; and Ray Harrison, Missions Chair- man. W. B. Coble is Student Secretary, George W. Hind- man is Faculty Advisor, and the Rev. L. E. Lamb is Pastor Advisor. BAPTIST STUDENT UNION WESLEY FOUNDATION When the Wesley Bible Chair first opened in January, 1929, the Rev. George J. Steinman was Professor in Charge. During that first year, two hundred and twenty-six students were enrolled in the Bible classes. Today Rev. John Wheeler is director of the Chair and also acts as sponsor for the Wesley Foundation. Continuous entertainment during the active year in- cluded hoyrides, picnics, a rummage sale, Christmas caroling, a Valentine Sweetheart Banquet, a treasure hunt, visiting Fellowship Teams from Lon Morris Junior College, and the trip to A. M. for the annual Texas Methodist Student Movement Conference. One of the SFA delegates to the TMSM, John C. Martin, served as Vice-President from the Texas Conference. Officers for the 1948-49 school year were President, Gene Cariker (Fall), Alfred Danheim (Spring); Vice- President, Martha Edens (Fall), Louneita Watson (Spring); Secretary-Treasurer, Jane Goodrich (Fall), Helen Muckleroy (Spring); Social Chairman, Mary Lou Low (Fall), Mary Ruth Dillen (Spring); Reporter, Charles Smith (Fall); John C.

This is primarily a professional club set up to aid future Agriculture teachers in F.F.A. work in the high schools, but social activities are carried on such as the annual Aggie Club Barbecue which is held each spring. Picnics and parties are also given in conjunction witli the girls in the Ellen H. Richards Club, an organization consisting of Home Economics majors. This tends to develop an understanding and relationship which will be of definite benefit to those boys and girls who will be working together after completion of college work. During special meetings speakers who are specialists in some phase of Agricultural work present worth- while programs. STEPHEN F. AUSTIN AGGIE CLUB SYLVANS The Sylvans Club was organized in the fall of 1946 for the purpose of bringing Forestry students in closer contact with professional foresters and men in related fields. The club has grown considerably since that time and now has a membership of 50 students. It has been very fortunate in obtaining noted speakers from many different fields such as surveying, dry kiln, paper mill industry, soil conservation, wood preser- vation, and sawmills. The first president of the club was Carl Mallory, who is now a private forester in this area. The forestry professors act as sponsors and co-spon- sors of the Club.

THE ROYAL ORDER OF AUSTINITES Officers WooDROw Behannon Vice-President James Parrish President Charles Root Secretary-Treasurer Members From out of the twilight of the past years has emerged the Lambda Gamma, which in its infancy seeks to be the very essence of fellowship, mutual interests, and common coopera- tion among its members in an evolving social progression. The Lamda Gamma, in its first year of activities, has attempted to function as an agent to bring about among its members the feeling of patriotism, to the College, to instill in the hearts of all students a consciousness of all of the values of the College. The club has participated in all intramural sports, has pre- sented all-college dances and contests, and has attempted to do its part in all other functions of the College throughout the year. It has at all times, and will continue to do so, attempted to cooperate in the traditions and customs of the College. The officers pictured are the installing officers, who wrote the constitution and served for the first semester. All members pic- tured are charier members of the club.

" Today the club still advocates the idea of an independent social club to which every student is invited to join. The activities of the KB ' s range from private and all-college dances to participat- ing in intramural sports. During the past year the young club sponsored a coffee at the first of school to which all non-club members were invited, won third place in the Homecoming parade with its novel float, and presented a " Gay Nineties " as- sembly program. At the present time there is some discussion of the organization of a state-wide Independent group with membership from all Texas colleges. Coach Ted L. Jefferies A salute to Coach Jeileries who in two short seasons pulled SFA out ol a protracted iootball slump and into third place in Conference standings. COACHING STAFF The 1948 Lumberjack gridiron eleven end- ed their highly successful season with the best record of any SFA team since the founding of the college. And the man re- sponsible for that record was Coach Jef- feries, who in two short seasons as head coach and athletic director pulled the col- lege out of a protracted iootball slump and put them back in the win column. Ably assisted by Coaches Harold Fischer, line coach; Joe Gallagher, assistant line coach; Buddy Hawkins, assistant backfield coach; trainer Readey Caskey; and stu- dent manager Thomas Roebuck, Coach Jefferies guided the ' Jacks through seven wins, two losses, and one tie into third place in Conference standings. Presenting the Lumberjacks — a 51-m.an squad with 25 returning lettermen copped second best season record tor 1948. AND THE TEAM .... IN 1948 Captain Dick V right Tangling with East Texas Baptist in their season opener, the Axemen caught fire and trampled the hapless Tigers 36-6. This was the first sea- son opener victory at SFA since 1935. Sparked by Oliver McKay and Roy Davidson, the Axe- men chopped the Tiger line for 21 points in the first 6 minutes. Their control was never ques- tioned after that. The Austin College Kangaroos fell beneath the Lumbermen ' s lightning attack in the second game of the season. Leo Anger, Sherman Hughes, Oliver McKay, Doug Samford, and Roy Davidson starred as the ' Jacks trampled over Austin 39-6. Bruising line play by Axemen forward wall kept the Kangaroos bottled in their own backfield most of the game. Gene Paul Aggleton, End Leo Anger, Quarterback Elton Beaird, Tackle Lloyd Biskamp, Center William Brightwell, Tackle Merlin Broussard, Guard Lewis Buckneh, Quarterback S. F. A. SUCCESSFUL For the second straight year SFA and Trinity battled to a tie. In their initial Conference game the Lumberman combination of Bobby Lee Smith and Doug Samford gave the local fans their thrill of the year. Only six seconds of play- ing time remained, and the ' Jacks trailed 0-7, when Smith connected to Samford with a touch- down pass. Bobby Lee then coolly kicked the tying point. This game was line against line. " Buddy " Shotwell, " Bum " Phillips, and Billy Jack Roberson stood out for the ' Jacks. The sweetest victory of the year came over East Texas State. A 14-6 Lumberjack victory gave SFA their first win over the Lions since 1928. Alert line play by Billy Jack Roberson and John Crum set up the first tally. They recovered a Lion fumble on the eleven yard stripe. Sher- man plowed over for the score, and Doug Sam- ford ' s touchdown run late in the fourth period clinched the game. James Canter, Quarterback Richard Carrington, Center John Crum, End James L. Due, End B. F. Christian, Back Roy D.avidson, Back James Eaves, Guard Bill Fincannon, Center Melvin Gill, Cenfer EIGHT A sparkling of the bitter must come with the sweet. Or that ' s what North Texas proved to the ' Jack fans when they blasted the Axemen 19-6 on Homecoming Day. The Eagle wall proved too much for the Lumbermen as it stop- ped them cold several times inside the 1 yard line. This was SFA ' s first defeat of the year. Defeat number two came when the SFA eleven failed to get by the jinx at San Marcos. A first quarter field goal by the Bobcats proved to be the deciding factor in the game. The Lumberjack line throttled the Feline attack but could not get their own offense rolling. So the scoreboard read 3-0, Southwest Texas. Pearman Hardy, Guard Fred Jackson, End Sherman Hughes, Back Austin Jones, Tackle Samiord goes over with an intercepted pass for tirsl cd against Bsarkats Bobby Jones, End Mitchell Lum, Guard Raymond Keown, End Oliver McKay, Back FOOTBALL A fighting, but outmanned Louisiana College aggregation bowed to the tune of 21-12 as the ' Jacks hit their comeback trail. Dusty Due, Sher- man Hughes, and Billy Jack Roberson, the tackle who intercepted a pass, scored for the Woodsmen. Turn about is fair play; so the Axemen told the Cougars as they spoiled the University of Houston Homecoming by handing them a 23-13 trouncing. Diminutive Oliver McKay was a thorn in the Cougars ' sides all during the game. Hughes, Wilson, and McKay tallied for SFA. In their final home appearance of the season, the Axemen continued their winning streak by air-blitzing Corpus Christi University 20-0. Pass combinations of Leo Anger to Roy Davidson, Hollis Slaughter to Bo Christian left the Tarpons surprisingly beaten. Phillips goes high to bring them low — Wilson and Jones rush to give assistance EASON«SPIRIT HIGH The game-of-all-games ended the Axemen ' s season — naturally that means the game with the Bearkats. Invading the Kat den, the Lumber- men skinned their arch rivals 21-0. Led by the pass interceptions experts, Samford and Wright, they left the Huntsville eleven wondering what was happening. Anger, Samford, and Wright scored for SFA. SEASON STANDINGS Team w. L T. Prt Pts. Op. S. West Tex. 8 1 .889 115 34 SFA 7 2 1 .750 185 72 Trinity 5 3 2 .667 121 85 N.

Regardless of the setbacks, the boys on the squad maintained a high spirit and the determination to win. The ' Jacks placed two men, Oliver McKay and Billy Jack Roberson, on the AU-Conference first team. With Coach Jefferies and his capable assistants at the helm, and with the 1948 record as a guide, the future seems to hold nothing but better years for SFA on the football field.

Season Standings Coach Glen Rose Coach Rose was no stranger to SFA cage fans when he assumed the duties of basketball mentor this year. These fans, recalling his prowess as an athlete who made three All Southwest Conference basketball teams and one All Southwest Con- ference football team, also were aware that, as a coach in this same conference for nine years, he had led his charges to five championships. With this record in mind. Jack fans began looking toward the 48-49 team as potential champions from the first workout staged by Rose. These great expectations and confidence were rewarded as they settled back to watch him develop this team into an impressive offensive machine that piled up a praiseworthy season record and donned the Lone Star Conference basketball crown.

Austin campus. Few tracksters are interest- ed, and for the past two years little has been accomplished. There are still a few lovers of the sport, how- ever, who refuse to give up, and these can be found almost any afternoon jogging around the new cinder path of Memorial Stadium. A few die- hard fans are still hoping that some day more interest will be shown in the sport, whether it becomes self- supporting or not. Ernest Starkey, Preston Prince, Tommy Franks The net sport has never been popular on the Lumberjack athletic agenda, and this year is no exception. Coaches of other sports are usually assigned this job, and never more than half a dozen candidates are out for positions. The young man pictured on the right was one of those in the 1948 season. His record in the Lone Star meet still stands, and his name is Burnis Lawrence. Below is pictured another Tildenesque character of the Lumberjack tennis fold, Raymond Harrison, Jr. The spring of 1949 was Raymond ' s first try for a letter, and early indications pointed to his earning it — the hard way as the photo shows. Harrison is a ministerial student, and divides his time between theology and the racquet. ON THE TENNIS COURTS A varied athletic program at SFA gives every stu- dent an ample opportunity to choose his favorite form of sport, for both recreation and varsity teams. On almost any spring afternoon every little nook on the campus is being used for some athletic contest. The crack of ash against horsehide, the laughter of swimming beauties, and the thud of a high jumper hitting sawdust are familiar sounds to SFA students. And when the weather frowns on outside sports, they merely move inside to table tennis or badminton. Hot game ol ping pong AROUND THE CAMPUS And it ' s up and over Badminton game during rainy aiternoon CHEERLEADERS Those flashing new royal purple and white cheerleader uniforms were worn this year by Flora Thames and Maurice Hubbard from Lufkin; Nell Lindsey and Frank Lindsey from Jasper; and Viola Bailey and John Martin, head cheerleader, from Nacogdoches. They not only exhibited their pep, energy, and school spirit at home football and basketball games, but they followed the team to Houston and Huntsville as well. In our estimation, they deserve a hearty vote of t hanks for helping to raise the spirit of SFA to a new high and for backing the Jacks to their prominent standings in the Lone Star Conference. Flora Thames, Maurice Hubbard, Nell Lindsey, Frank Lindsey, Viola Bailey, John Martin IMTRAMlIRAt SPORTS.. » The purpose of the intramural program is to pro- vide good wholesome activities for those who are not members of the varsity squad engaged in that particular sport.

IN RETROSPECT Well, it seems as if this is it: my final exam, my last tree chopped for today. As I think back, the struggle to edit a yearbook worthy of your appreciation and enjoyment has been a wonderful experience. It has given me an opportunity to work with a staff of con- siderate, loyal, and inspiring helpers. To each one I am everlastingly indebted for his contribution, re- gardless of its degree of importance. Together we have worked and planned diligently, striving to bring you a meritorious book of memories of what we con- sider to be the grandest year of all in the history of our college, es, this is my final exam; and now it is up to you, my judge, to evaluate my efforts. This is my all. I ' ve tried, teacher! JCM. STUDENTS WHO REGISTERED AT BEGINNING OF SPRING SEMESTER (Pictures not shown in this book) beniors Karrer, Bert L.
