1344i I y ✓ THE STUDENTS AT STEPHEN F.AUSTIN STATE COLLEGE... LD 5 n .S3 2 57fcX mo NX ...PRESENT SFA )) STOKE FORT Pictures can penetrate the fog of time and bring back pleasant memories of the past. In the following pages of your 1950 Stone Fort, we present a pictorial re- view of life at Stephen F. Austin State College. With the largest student body in history, activities increased in proportion. This gave our aggressive photographers an abundance of material to cover. Space placed its limitations. We selected the subject matter which we considered rep- resentative of " the great life, " and maxi- mum effort was exerted to publish a pose of each and every one of you. Turn these pages, and memories of this magnificent year at Stephen F. Austin will return to you. A d mini i ration Bail d ing ■ -nai ' T •-• HACOGDOCHES.. TBSAS Science Building Knowledge is power, and knowledge is ob- tained easily by doing those tasks which we find enjoyable. As we pursue learning in our selected fields, we are grateful for the facilities which give us the ability to widen our scope of knowledge. Here, at Stephen F. Austin State College, we are blessed with the best of those facilities. C(( New Boys ' Dorm FEATURE FORMAL Student Congress, classes, social affairs . . . our campus activities are a blend of the serious and the lighthearted, dignity and formality tempered with gaiety and festivity. After all, isn ' t that what youth is? Above, Halloween Costume Ball Left, Coke Party - Wisely Hall Activity — from forty winks at Wisely Hall to the lowly freshman ' s reign for a day — life on the forty acres. Homecoming Queen Jean Risber receives roses . . . one of the beautiful floats in Homecoming parade . . . Jacks battle Bearkats in traditional grudge game . . . SFA Band per funis at half-time . . . Pine Burr float with Wishing Well theme . . . A scene from the tea given for the Exes. IN " The best part of beauty is that which a picture cannot express. " These words of Francis Bacon most fittingly symbolize our campus and campus life. We have more than our share of beautiful scenery. Women ' s Recreational Centet Play is essential to a well rounded education. We have spent many happy hours in Aikman Gym and WRC. AND PICTURE The future of East Texas is in her timber. The stately pines of SFA add to the beauty of our campus while they stand as silent guardians to guide our destiny as Lumber- jacks. TMITliS , , ),» : Old Stone Fort ) ) ) We reached a new high in our train of traditions this year. The Sam Houston Bearkats went back to their dens bearing the worst defeat that the Lumberjacks ever handed them. That great event vied even with highlights which started with the President ' s Fall Reception and ended with the gala Spring Festival. 2 A Queen Gibb ' s Hall MHB v ■ Mm ' ' ' A ' " • - ■ MM ■ - l L Ax — 1 .

Birdwell PRESIDENT EMERITUS The three attributes of character which we students and faculty members hold in highest regard are those of Courage, Loyalty, and Unselfishness; Courage to do that which one knows to be right; Loyalty to one ' s ideals; and Unselfishness in dealing with one ' s fellowman. To Alton W. Birdwell, whose acts through the years have been conditioned by these attri- butes we owe much. He has had the courage in the face of stern opposition to recommend and do the things which he felt to be the best interest of Stephen F. Austin State College; he has been loyal to the ideals which he set for himself; he has been unselfish in that he has pushed on to goals which he felt would be beneficial to all. So, to Alton W. Birdwell, whose life is the very acme of Courage, Loyalty, and Unselfish- ness, we dedicate this page. OUR PRESIDENT Dr. and Mrs. Paul L. Boynton We are happy to present to all of you, students, faculty, ex-students, and friends of S. F. A., another chronicle of the College ' s personnel and activities. We are intensely proud of our students, and staff. Hence, we are not surprised to find that this has been a good year, one characterized by much learning and much wholesome living, one long to be remembered and cherished by all. To you, our graduates, we wish the best of everything in the years that stretch before you. We hope most sincerely that as a result of your training and experiences at Stephen F. Austin you have acquired those skills and that knowledge, and have perfected those habits of thinking which will be of greatest help to you in your personal and professional lives. We wish for you a bountiful supply of opportunities for hard, worthwhile, and productive work. Also, it is our hope that as you live boldly and effectively, you may also live joyously. In other words, we hope each of you will make the contribution to life about you, and to your own well-being of which we know you are capable. Good luck!

Forestry EX-STUDENTS ASSOCIATION The purpose of the Stephen F. Austin State College Ex-Student James T. Ogg Association is to encourage good fellowship and loyalty among President , , . , , Class of 1937, Longview former students and to promote the general interest of the 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-Students ' 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.

Richards Homecoming Activitie Shirt sleeves and sunsuits would have been more appropriate for the weather, but the faithful turned out in cold weather designed Lumberjack garb in spite of the heat. The pace of this 1949 Homecoming was nearly as hot as the sun and all but a hardy few were noticeably drooping when the day was done. The big- gest and best Homecoming parade (the Foresters walked off with first prize for their float) yet of- ficially marked the beginning of the day ' s activities. and the dance in Aikman Gym, featuring the corona- tion of Queen Jean, ended it. Sandwiched in between were the Lumberjacks ' rout of the Bearkats, a score of club luncheons, teas, and dinners, and the happy meetings of exes, students, and comrades. When the last note from Buddy Ryland ' s trombone had died away, and the last of the dancers had reluctantly departed, a memorable Homecoming Day was over.

Jefferies In his three years on the campus as Athletic Director and head football coach, Ted Jefferies has endeared himself to those with whom he has come in contact. He has proved himself an ef- ficient administrator, and his football teams have proved that he is a capable coach. The Athletic Department has expanded and improved so that now SFA ranks high in Texas athletic activities. Under his leadership, this progress has been made, and as SFA grows its students and ex-students can be proud of Coach Jefferies and the Athletic Department.

Trailing 13 points at the half, the determined Lumberjacks came back in the last half to snatch victory from defeat. Sparked by the running of James Canter and the quarterback- ing of Leo Anger, the Jacks came through with a 23-20 win over Southwest Texas. When the gun sounded ending the Stephen F. Austin-Sam Houston hoedown, November 19, 1949, the Lumberjacks had completed the most successful year in SFA football history. Coach Bili Wilson H. W. Wilson Ted L. Jefferies ' Lumberjacks played nine games, won seven of them, soundly thrashed the tradi- tional rival Sam Houston Bearkats, tied for second place in the Lone Star Conference, and ended up in fourth place among all Texas college teams. Opening the 1949 season against East Texas Baptist College with 19 to 7 win, and closing it with a 51-14 victory over Sam Houston, the Jacks salted away some fine statistics for Stephen F. Austin football annals. Suffering defeat only at the hands of East Texas State and North Texas, the Lumberjacks were a spirited and ever dangerous team. A REVIEW OF THE Leo Anger wrote finis to four years of college football with brilliant field generalship and Oliver McKay sparked Lumberjack offensives with precision ball handling and yardage gaining runs. In the point-after-touchdown depart- ment, with the ferocious accuracy of Billy Jack Roberson ' s kicking, the only worry SFA had was getting somebody to throw the ball back on the field. Turning in great performances as well as closing out their college football careers were Roy Davidson, James " Dusty " Due, Oliver McKay, Fred Jackson, H. W. Wilson, Leo Anger, Billy Jack Rober- son, Sherman Hughes, and Merlin Broussard.

Lj m wL s Jm After an auspicious start in the Lone Star Con- ference in the 1948-49 season when his Lumber- jack charges won the loop crown handily, Coach Glen Rose was faced with that old coaching buga- boo, " rebuilding, " in the next time out. Losing two of his all-conference stars, the lanky mentor from Arkansas fielded a near-freshman quintet on occasions, and guided them to a creditable season. The young team rewarded the coach ' s tutoring with a scrappy, high-scoring try in every one of the twenty-four games. Most of the losses the team experienced could easily have been vic- tories with a little luck. Taking everything into account, Lone Star members had better watch Coach Rose and the Jack cagers for the next three years. They ' re young, big, and full of hustle. Coach Glen Rose AT S. F. A.

Enterprise John H. Redd Forward Blossom Harry Williams Forward Deweyville ON THE HARDWOOD The season record for the Lumberjack basketballers showed eight won and sixteen lost, four of the wins and eight of the losses coming during the conference campaign. On the face of it, it didn ' t look too good. There were compensating factors, however, which brought a gleam to the eyes of Jack followers. In the first place, the team was mostly a freshman-sophomore combination, which can be expected to improve rapidly in the next few seasons. Then there is the fact that the ' Jack quint outscored all other Lone Star teams, both in season and conference play. In fact, three Lumberjacks, Johnston, Duff, and Asimos, were among the first seven leaders, with Johnston walking away with first place honors. At the risk of second-guessing, there ' s this to consider, also. At least half of the Jack losses could have been victories with a little more luck. They soundly thrashed every team in the conference at least once, and were never up against a weak quint during the sea- son. They may have been outscored, but nobody could say they were ever outhustled.

The 1949 edition of the Lumberjack baseballers again grabbed a share of the Lone Star Conference champion- ship title — they were co-champions with Sam Houston. In 1947 and ' 48 the Axemen, under the guidance of Coach Joseph Gallagher won the flag outright. In gaining their co-championship title, the Jacks de- feated the University of Houston twice, East Texas twice, and Hardin College and Sam Houston once. Their only two conference setbacks came at the hands of the Bear- kats and the Indians. Two members of the 1949 team made the all-conference team — Leo Anger, junior first baseman and Ted Asimos, freshman second sacker. Richard Glockzin, Axemen pitcher, was the only conference pitcher to go unde- feated in loop play. His four wins and no defeats played an important part in his signing a professional contract with the Ph iladelphia Phillies.

OTHER SPORTS As do most schools, Stephen F. Austin ' s athletic program emphasizes the " big three " in collegiate competition; football, basketball, and baseball. A fairly broad program, however, is embraced and the school fields teams in tennis, golf, and track. Of late, the Lumberjack minors have not been carrying home many trophies, but they keep plugging away. SPORT SNAPS Sportiri Around ON THE TENNIS COURT On days that the sun is permitted to shine, the resound- ing thwack of the tennis balls against catgut is evidence of a lively, rather restricted, interest in tennis. A group of hard-working and determined racquet wielders prac- tice constantly sharpening up their game in preparation for spring tennis tourneys. Due to the stiff practice and additional experience of last year ' s net squad, Stephen F. Austin ' s tennis chances look brighter this year than they have looked for many a moon. Making up the team are three lettermen from the 1949 squad, one from 1947 and one hard serving new member. The 1949 tennis team, made up of Truman Milling, Gene Paul Agleton, Glenn Hardin and Kenneth Fox, won six matches last year against seasoned opponents, and promise to give the big guns of Sam Houston and University of Houston a battle for the honors. The 1949 team was composed of freshmen with little or no tournament experience, but they return this year greatly improved and confident. Milling, Fox and Agle- ton are joined by veteran Jerry Gartman and hard-hit- ting Rudy Bowden, to make up Coach Glen Rose ' s 1950 SFA tennis team. AROUND THE Say, is this Wisely or Gibbs??

THE CHEERLEADERS " We ' ve got the pep, we ' ve got the steam " was a good characteristic of the cheerleaders this year. Not only did they support the Lumberjack teams during athletic events, but they helped foster school spirit during other college activities throughout the year. The cheerleaders led yells at the football games, served as a welcoming committee to all visiting cheerleaders, conducted pep rallies on Thursdays and Saturdays before the games, held an early morning pep rally to send the Lumberjack team to an out-of-town game, participated in the Homecoming parade and were in charge of the bon-fire pep rally, and when basketball season came, they found their place for leading yells on the hardwood sidelines. Under the sponsorship of H. E. LeBrecht, the cheerleaders were Viola Bailey, Nacogdoches; Pat Bowser, Lufkin; Phyllis Garner, Beaumont; Maurice Hubbard, head cheerleader, Lufkin; Frank Lindsey, Jasper; and Albert " Hamp " Wheeler, Northward Ridge, New Hampshire. Intramural Sports Pictured here are shots tak- en at random of various in- tramural football games. I Intramural sports are an integral part of Stephen F. Austin ' s campus life, as is shown by the number of intramural teams and the keen rivalry that exists between them. Not only do the men ' s social clubs field teams in basketball, football, volleyball, and baseball, but a rash of independent teams with eccentric-sounding names breathe hot on the heels of the clubmen. This year the Foresrers, Sawyers, Lambda Gammas, and Austinites had to face the hardy competition of such free wheeling independents as the Crackerjacks, Leaping Lenas, Hot Rocks, Snow Birds, Hungry Five, Ragknots, and Pine Knots. For the second season in a row the Sawyers walked off with the intramural basketball championship, but only after a stiff battle with the Pine Knots. The football championship bat tle was between those two ancient en- emies, the Foresters and the Sawyers. The Foresters took the game and displaced last year ' s winners, the Austinites, as football intramural champions. Because of an early publication date it is impossible to include the outcome of volleyball and baseball, but all organi- zations are zealously rounding up potential players, and the competition is sure to be frenzied and frantic.

Sheley s TONE FORT The end of another year always brings us a new annual. This year, we, the annual staff, have thoroughly en- joyed our work and sincerely hope that we have created a book which shall aid you in recalling all of your fond or otherwise memories of this passing school year. " All work and no play " hasn ' t been our motto. We have had our share of the laughs too. Always around to keep the girls happy and smooth things over was Jerry Gartman, without whose able assistance and moral support we could have never made it. Jo Ann McKewen kept things from becoming dull with her good humor and quick wit. Betty Vosbury, Liz Hud- gens and Mary Lou Low were always standing by, ready to lend a helping hand. Last but not least our talented and courageous editor-in-chief who braved the storms, kept her staff in running order, and executed the many and endless jobs that had to be done; yet Ramona McDaniel had time to give her co-workers encourage- ment and a friendly smile. As you read through this book now and in the years to come, we sincerely hope that it gives you added pleasure in recalling memories of this school year 1949- 50. We trust that you will grow as fond of this year ' s annual as we have been in creating the book for you, the student body. PINE LOG 1 9 5 O Stuff members take time out to pose. As the " voice " of the student body, we realize that several times we have been accused of having laryngitis. In an ef- fort to defend ourselves, as well as help those who will follow in our footsteps, we hasten to point out the following 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 1-A; all students are entitled and en- couraged to contribute their stories, advice, and spare time to this publica- tion; there is a monster commonly called " deadline " which must be ap- peased; and typographical 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 pub- lish the news as we saw it and provide entertainment for you. We feel that if the efforts extended by the pictured starting line-up have enlightened or entertained you, our creative attempts have not been in vain. J. T Cox Director 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, con- certs, and musical assemblies kept the sixty mem- bers constantly on the move. We salute Director J. T.

LUMBERJACK BAND A CAPPELL A CHOIR The fun began with rehearsals at 4:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in September with 46 members present. October found " Mr. B " tearing his mustache and forgetting how to say anything except " Let ' s knock off the funny stuff " and " Dooit agin. " The choir boasts of six concerts delivered in good form the week before Christmas holidays as well as several performances for local organizations and school occasions. The sorrows of discords, flat notes, and silent entrances are all forgotten when we recall the fun we had on the concert tours which started before daybreak and ended long after nightfall. Frfderick Baumgartner Director Buddy Rylatid and bis orchestra at Pleasure Pier BUDDY RYLAND ' S The Buddy Ryland Orchestra will say goodbye to the pines of Stephen F. Austin this year to launch itself into the currents of professional life. Buddy Ryland and his orchestra are gradu- ating this year and already have an impressive list of bookings waiting for them. The orchestra has had offers from four dif- ferent booking agencies and will probably start recording for Decca at an early date. Buddy and his boys introduced a new kind of dance music to SFA, and, through consistent listings among outstanding dance bands, earned recognition for SFA as well as for themselves. Since the orchestra ' s organization in 1947, the boys have been building it with only one idea in mind — of hitting the big time. They certainly seem to be on their way. From mop-topped Buddy Ryland to songstress Trixie Butler ( in private life Mrs. Bill Davis) the orchestra is a competent, well-integrated or- ganization that gives out with the newest in musical stylings in a manner that has won them comparison with such progressive greats as Tex Beneke, Les Brown and Gene Krupa. The band already has dates lined up at such popular play- grounds as Houston ' s Plantation Club, the Shamrock, and Lou Ann ' s Club in Dallas. Soon after graduation the band will start its summer tour with three weeks booking at the Pleasure Pier in Galveston, and will then head for the West Coast play- ing mostly one night stands and theater dates.

The newly formed Amer- ican Chemical Society has been in existence on the campus of SFA for a very short time, yet it boasts a membership of over 95 per cent of the students eligible, name- ly, chemistry majors, and chemical engineers of at least sophomore stand- ing. The object of the Chapter is to foster a professional pride in chemistry, to secure the intellectual stimulation that arises from professional association, and to gain experience in preparing and presenting technical material before professional audiences. ACS CLUB The purpose of the Library Club is to interpret the library ' s work to the students of Stephen F. Austin in such a way that will make books interesting instead of boresome. Another objec- tive of the club is to publicize and promote the activities of the library. Membership in the club is not limited to student assistants; but any inter- ested student is cordially invited to join, especial- ly those students taking library science courses.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA ■ Alpha Psi Omega is the national honorary dramatic fraternity designed for the purpose of providing an honor society for those doing a high standard of work in dramatics. The aim of Alpha Psi Omega as set down in the Constitution is " fellowship and service to stimulate interest in collegiate dramatics. " The fraternity does not take the place of the regular dramatic club or other production groups, but as students qualify, they are awarded mem- bership in this society. Individual membership in Alpha Psi Omega is awarded to those college students who have participated in enough dramatic activities to meet the rigid requirements set up by the fraternity. These activities may take the form of participation in plays, production staff work, advertisement, direction, and play- writing. Membership is determined on a point-system basis. Each college chapter of Alpha Psi Omega is known as a " cast, " the national officers as " the grand cast, " and the national convention as a " rehearsal. " The Stephen F. Austin chapter is the Beta Phi Cast. Officers for the year are: Milton Bradford, Director of the Cast; Evelyn Earl Monzingo, Sub-Director; Carolyn Mooney, Secretary-Treasurer. Yolando Cortazzo, Secretary, Mary Lou Low, Vice-President, Jean Rhber, Alonzola Covington, Louise Riggs, Alary Lou Koster, Anita Boles, Margaret Rushing, Ramona McDaniel, Evelyn Camp, President, L. W. Ellerbrook and Dr. A. L. Long, Sponsors. The first FTA college and university chapters were chartered in the spring of 1939. One year later there were 64 chapters in good standing. In SFA the charter was revived in October, 1947, after an inactive period. How- ever, its members and officers are now working towards a stronger chapter for the future. Since the purpose of FTA is to train for democratic cooperative action, importance is attached to projects in which young people work at educational and civic problems. FTA brings to the student the motivating power of a lifelong purpose and a nationwide outlook. It is designed to develop ideals and power in the lives of its members.

GRAND ORDER OF ROYAL BARRISTERS The Grand Order of Royal Barristers is a professional club organized primarily for the benefit of those students who have chosen to enter the political field. This non-social club chooses its members with discretion, with em- phasis upon character, ability to speak, and the capacity to withstand objective criticism. The Barristers con- vene each Monday night and each meeting is characterized by alertness and swiftmoving debate according to Robert ' s rules of parliamentary procedure. The subjects which come under fire at a Barrister meeting range all the way from the routine issues of club business to the major political issues of the day, and all discussions are un- dertaken with the knowledge on the part of each Barrister that no holds are barred. The Grand Order of Royal Barristers is proud of its past record at Stephen F.

Arts Incorporated was formed in 1946 in an effort to further the understanding and appreciation of the Fine Arts on the campus and in the surrounding communities. Much progress was made by the club this year, 1949-50, when it became a prominent organization on the campus, both as an instrument of culture and as an agency of advice and assistance in art to the other organizations active at SFA. Many and varied are the activities which have high-lighted this year ' s career of Arts Incorporated. To name a few, it has sponsored art exhibits both on and off the campus, solicited funds by making Christmis cards to sell, visited museums and other places of artis- tic interest, and has, in general, tried to raise its own cultural standards, as well as those of the inhabitants of the immediate vicinity. ELLEN H. RICHARDS CLUB The Home Economics Club has been an active organization since its beginning in 1926. In 1932 it became the Ellen H. Richards Club, honoring a pioneer in home economics education. The club flower is the rose; the motto, " Forever Learning, " and the club colors are green and white. Our club has been affiliated with the state and na- tional Home Economics Association since May 19, 1927. Miss Edna Wilkin, with assistance of other faculty mem- bers, has sponsored the club since its beginning. Although the club members delight in new programs and projects, members point with pride and satisfaction to their yearly activities. Each year there is a club page in the annual, a morning coffee on Homecoming day, a float in the Homecoming parade, a Christmas party, Fall and Spring picnics, and a banquet honoring ex-students in the spring.

GIBBS HALL COUNCIL Gibbs Hall Council, made up of girls elected by their associates because of their leadership ability, reputation for fair play, and general good nature, attempts to iron out Dormitory difficulties and to promote co-operation among the Dormitory girls to keep " everybody happy. " Prexy Beavers presides to start the ball rolling at council and general house meetings called near the middle of the night or whenever the need arises, to discuss general improve- ments, or in rare instances to investigate a crashing coke bottle explosion at midnight, mostly occurring during deadweek, or to counsel girls who " just couldn ' t say goodnight " by 11 o ' clock. House Mother Richardson, ever promoting the girls ' best interests, adds her quiet peaceful attendance at the meetings and contributes helpful sug- gestions. Bessie Coussons records the happenings of the meetings and keeps account of finances, while Wing Coun- selors Watson and Beck from Third Floor, Lusk and Hud gens from Second, and Schillings from First deliver their respective contributions. The Council promotes occasional General House meetings and other activities where all the Dormitory girls may participate. Among these are: a Coffee introducing Rush Week with all women students and women faculty members invited; a Kangaroo Court, where the freshmen really " jump " ; a Christmas Party with gifts and fun for all, and General Gripe Sessions collecting corrective criticisms of Dormitory conditions. Visitors from the Sam Houston College Student Congress were entertained with an afternoon coffee in Gibbs Hall Lounge in November. Monthly birthdays in each respective month, when they are guests of honor along with faculty members who celebrate birthdays together with them.

BAPTIST STUDENT UNION Baptist Student Center The Baptist Student Union emblem shows what we stand for. The helmet of salvation is uppermost, for all B.S.U. members first must be Christians and in addition members of a local Baptist Church or one of its unit organizations. In the connecting links, we see its unified pro- gram of Baptist religious activity, and realize that it seeks to link the college student to the local church. The shield of faith represents prayer, and denominational loyalty; the sword of the Spirit behind it represents Bible study. Sacrificial service is embodied in the cross. Our campus organization is a part of one which includes the youth of the state, the South, and ultimately the world, as we are connected with the Baptist World Alliance through its Youth Committee. Highlights of the year were our pre-school re- treat, the Thanksgiving Breakfast, State B.S.U. Convention, Christmas party, Youth Revival, Spring Conference, and Spring Banquet.

The Wesley Bible Chair began its services to the student body of Stephen F. Austin, January 3, 1929, after five years of dreaming, praying, and negotiating on the part of those responsible for its establishment. From the beginning, directors of the Wesley Bible Chair have offered Bible courses to the students of the campus. The name of the Bible Chair has been changed to " The Methodist Student Center " because of the new duties taken on by this organization. Today not only Bible courses, but a well-rounded pro- gram of worship, recreation, and fellowship is of- fered to all students of the campus. By the end of the school year our housing facili- ties will be adequate for any and all activities sponsored by the Methodist Student Movement of the campus. It is our desire that the students use the new center as a second home, a place to hang their hat, rest by the fire- place, read a good book, or play dominoes. Our little Chapel is to be used for private meditation and devotionals as well as public worship. Through all our activities we trust that students of our campus will find the key to Abundant Living. WESLEY FOUNDATION The Methodist Student Center STEPHEN F. AUSTIN AGGIE CLUB With the exception of the war period, there has been an active Aggie Club organization present on the Stephen F. Austin campus since the beginning of the Agriculture Department.

The plans are to observe local chapters of Area No. 1, and assist them in any possible way with their leadership training program. The main purpose is to set up the ideal as to what a high school chapter should be like in its training program and physical facilities. In addition to regular meetings, the club will assist with the annual Area No. 7 leadership contest and in Homecoming activities, take part in college intramural athletic programs, the Nacog- doches County Fair, and various other activities throughout the year.

Austin Theatre Guild is a professional and service organization for students participating in or interested in dramatic activity. Enrollment in school is the only qualification for entrance in the Theatre Guild and students retain their membership by the amount of dramatic activity carried on. The aims of the Guild are to develop talent in dramatic work, to cultivate a taste for the best in drama, to foster the cultural values which dramatics are believed to develop, to offer dramatic entertainment for the school as a whole, and to aid other profes- sional and social organizations in their dramatic endeavors. The work of the Theatre Guild in the field of dramatics includes at least one major production each semester of school, a number of minor productions throughout the school year, and as many opportunities to participate with or aid other collegiate organizations in dramatic performances as possible. The purpose of the Guild is to build a greater interest and appreciation in the students and faculty of this college in the field of dramatic activity.

The aim and purpose of the club as set forth in the preamble of our constitution is " to create a more fraternal relationship in our college and to found an organization which will be an asset to the social life of Stephen F. Austin State College. " With that as their goal the Forester Club marched a long way in that direction and with each step they have gained compliments which are best appreciated within the Forester Club, for the Foresters know that they have achieved that virtue so earnestly desired . . . Honor. Starting during the war years with two strikes against them, they rose to become one of the finest men ' s clubs on the campus. They are setting an incredible rapid pace in intramural athletics and social affairs. They are just now gaining their momentum and their spirit is unlimited.

The organization, besides promoting school spirit and backing SFA, win or lose, does things socially on a large scale. The annual Bowery Ball and Apron-Overall Dance are two of the most popular and electrifying dances given on the forty acres. The Sawyers ' loyalty to SFA is beyond question.

Organized in January, 1938, the Royal Order of Austinites was founded for the purpose of sponsoring school projects for the pleasure and benefit of the student body. The small gold emblem of the Royal Order of Austinites is emblematic of the four aims of the organization: Leadership, Scholarship, Character, and Fraternity. The Austinite Club sponsors a varied calendar of activities. Perhaps the most colorful activity is the annual " Pie Night " each spring semester; with its gags and slap-stick it has constantly won acclaim as one of the most outstanding features of the year. As a service to the student body, the Austinite Poll periodically gets the students viewpoint on pertinent questi ons and conducts other polls and elections. The Austinites are always eager to contribute their efforts toward any worthwhile project that is of interest to, or for the betterment of the student-body and the school. It is through service and leadership that we hope to continue to retain a position as one of the leading organiza- tions on the campus. The Sigma Gamma Club was organized during the spring semester of 1948, as the sister club of the Lambda Gamma, a men ' s social club. The motto, " friendship, fellowship, and felicity, " symbolizes the activities of Sigma Gamma. Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Sibyl Wyatt and Mrs. Holt Davis and the leadership of Viola Bailey, we have striven to attain a worthy and respected place in Stephen F. Austin social life. The affairs given by the club included a Fall Fiesta, to be continued annually, a Carnival Rush Party, and other events.

Since September it has been on our hands. We now place it in yours. It has taken the combined efforts of a great many students, the faculty, and many others who have joined in com- piling this record of Stephen F. Austin life during the past year. The staff wishes to pay full tribute to these faithful workers who would otherwise remain unrecognized. To Robert S. See and the staff of the Shreveport Engraving Company go our gratitude for their co-operation and splendid service; to Bob Smith, commercial artist of Shreveport Engraving Co., who did all the art work. We are indebted to Dr. Sheley and Violet Adkins, annual sponsors, for their patience, guidance, and faithfulness; for Lawrence Franks ' helpful advice and co-operation; to R. R. Harvin for publicity; to Louis Secard for for picking the Stone Fort beauties. George Shorter of Shreveport is to be congratulated upon his excellent photography which is featured through- out the book. To all others not mentioned here who played some part in compiling this book, go our humble thanks. Also, we wish to thank the advertisers who have helped to finance this yearbook. EDITOR TO OUR ADVERTISERS On behalf of the faculty, student body, Stone Fort staff, and myself, I should like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and apprecia- tion for your co-operation in making this Yearbook possible. I am cer- tain the students and the faculty of Stephen F. Austin will repay their gratitude by calling on you as often as possible.
