134413 5 2 the SCRAPKOOK edition of bringing you At Work in Zoology Lab The aim of Stephen F. Austin State College is to broaden and enrich the lives of its students mentally, physi- cally, spiritually, and socially through classes, a balanced sports program, re- ligious organizations, and social events. These form the nucleus of SFA, and in this book we have attempted to present a true picture of these school activities for the year 1951-52. LORETTA HEATH, Editor And Staff your college year at F. AUSTIN " ' deep COLLEGE ' Jacks-Bearkats in Homecoming Tangle One of Many Dances ...registration fin Each school year begins with reg- istration — the day every student selects his courses, meets his instruc- tors, and gets acquainted with a con- fusing number of other students who will probably become his best friends before the year is over. At the Information Desk Paying Fees at Fiscal Office ■ Waiting for Registration to Begin This year ' s registration was marked for the first time with a three-day guidance program for Freshmen during which counsellors helped each student plan his schedule and become familiar with the campus.

EIDSON Second Vice-President LAREDO, TEXAS THE BOARD OF REGENTS PRESIDENT EMERITUS Loved and admired by all who know him, Dr. A. W. Birdwell, founder of Stephen F. Austin State College, is recognized as one of the leading educators in the country. He has given sound advice to thousands of young men and young w omen, and his counsel is still sought by the school men of East Texas. His entire life has been dedicated to improving the minds of young people, and it is he who has guided S.F.A. to its present high scholastic standards. It can truthfully be said that Dr. Birdwell is really " Mr. S.F.A. " Dr. A. W. Birdwell PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE Dr. and Mrs. Paul L. Boynton THE PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE Contrary to what some may think, a college degree is not a passport to either the State of Success or the State of Reduced Effort. At best, a degree from a strong, fully accredited col- lege, with a highly trained, experienced, efficient, co nscientious instructional staff, a college such as Stephen F. Austin State College, is little more than a public statement to the effect that the one who holds this degree is capable of working hard and wisely in the pursuit of worthwhile personal and social goals. To those of the graduating classes of 1952, the faculty and staff of Stephen F. Austin State College extend the very best of wishes. We hope for each of you ample opportunities, throughout a long life, for full, vigorous, persistent, and wise work. We wish for you, in other terms, the opportunity to capitalize on your potentialities. Ours has been a real privilege to have had the chance to work and associate with you. As members of our family, we are in- tensely proud of you, and ambitious for you. So, if occasion arises in the future where we can help you, we want you to call upon us. Nevertheless, we know that in large degree your fu- ture will be written by the pen of your own diligence and understanding. That this future may have the beauty of a lyric, the dynamic appeal of a drama, the purposeful plot of an epic, and the successful ending of a melodrama is our hope. PAUL L.

Austin Ex-Students ' Association has maintained the standards of en- couraging good fellowship and loyalty among former students of this institution and to promote the general interests of our college. Homecoming held each fall during football season provides the main function of the year. All former students are urged to return to the campus to meet old friends and view improvements on the college campus. A full day of entertainment is planned for the Ex-Students, beginning with a parade, banquet, football game, social club and organization parties for the Exes, and the day is climaxed with the Homecoming Dance. Meetings of the various county S.F.A. Clubs are held during the year and are a vital part of the entire program. The Ex-Students ' Association maintains an office at the college for the purpose of receiving and disseminating infor- mation about former students. 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.

Austin State College, has been published this year for the twenty-eighth successive time in an effort to present a true, lasting picture of S.F.A. in 1951-52 for the student body. Editor-in-Chief Loretta Heath, aided by Assistant Editor Pat Fairchild, has yelled orders to hard-working staff members; while Betty Stoker, backed up by Billy Bates, has striven to keep the advertisers happy. With the entire staff working together to brave all storms and enjoy all laughs, the job of publication has not been a hard one — especially with such able assistance as that given by sponsor Weldon Wright and Faculty Ad- visors Lawrence Franks and Edwin Gaston, Jr. If each person reading through this book in the years to come finds added pleasure in recalling memories of this school year, the aim of the staff will have been accomplished.

Austin State College student body, has completed its twenty-fourth year of consecutive publication. Under the direction of Editor Dorothy Brunner, the paper during 1951-52 emphasized impartial reporting of all significant events on the campus and stressed pictorial coverage perhaps more than ever before. Contributing directly to the success of this year ' s pub- lications have been the industrious staff members, headed by Business Manager Jimmy Mahoney and Assistant Editor Joyce Gray. Among those other students who performed outstand- ing service for the newspaper have been the following: Hubert Poskey, sports editor; Len Neff, assistant sports editor; Columnists Sam ( " Mumblin ' " ) Akin and Faye ( " Movie of the Week " ) Bennett Mullin; L. D. Cross and Louise Wilson, editorial writers; Jimmy Wilkins, car- toonist; and Loretta Heath, Miriam Whitton, Pat Town- send, Jerry Turner, James Dunsmore, and Charles Bane, reporters.

WESLEY FOUNDATION The Wesley Bible Chair, located just north of the campus, is now in its twenty-second year as a part of the religious life of the students of this college campus. This organization has a dual purpose. Through the Wesley Bible Chair, courses in bible are available for college credit, while the Wesley Foundation seeks to provide a religious organization in which students may participate in worship services, social functions and recreational activities. Aid to needy families, Christmas caroling, homecoming activities, hay rides, possum hunts, informal group singing and carefully planned worship services make up most of the agenda for activities. The director, Charles E. Laing, assumed this position in August, 1951. The local Foundation is fortunate in having one of the finest physical plants in the state. The present building was completed in September, 1950, and plans are now under consideration for an enlargement of these facilities. One of the high points of the program this year was the annual trip to the State Methodist Student Movement Convention held in Dallas during the Thanksgiving holidays.

While serving as a means of pointing the Baptist student to the vital need of serving Christ in the local Baptist churches while at college, the BSU seeks to serve also as a medium for presenting the Christian challenge to the entire campus. Its program includes morning watch each week-day, a period of devotion and worship; visitation to shut- ins, a worship service h eld in the homes of those who cannot attend church otherwise; socials, planned periods of Christian fun and fellowship ranging from banquets to weiner roasts; visitation to students, wit- nessing for Christ by enlisting others and telling the gospel message; Bible study, a period set aside for the study of God ' s Word together; Y.W.A., a missionary program for Baptist girls. Other activities of the year included presentation of a play, " Challenge of the Cross, " to various churches; publication of the Student Directory; working toward First Magnitude, the highest honor attain- able in BSU work; reading the " Baptist Student, " a magazine for college students. A Baptist student automatically becomes a member of the BSU upon joining a local Baptist church or one of its organizations, but every Baptist student who enrolls in college is welcome to participate in any of the activities sponsored by the Baptist Student Union. The organization operates under the guidance of Student Director W. B. Coble and an executive council made up of students elected each spring.

The club officers and members promote fellowship, friendship, and goodwill among the individual students. Among the traditional activ ities of the club, the Sadie Hawkins Day Dance with its beard growing contest and the Showboat Dance, which is sponsored jointly with the sister club, the Sigma Gamma Club, are perhaps the most well known. Other club activities include the annual Thanksgiving turkey raffle, rush parties, stag parties, and the dinner dances. One of the new activities undertaken this year was the formation of a bulletin sent out to ex-members to inform them of coming club activities. The club has a rather small but very active alumni group. The ranks of the secret No. 9 Committee, which is a permanent mem- bership committee, is growing steadily with six new members being appointed tach year.

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 each year. These activities include dances, picnics, parties, and entering competing teams in intramural sports. One of the most outstanding dances during the fall semester is the Austinite Annual Christmas Dance. 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 top activities of the year. As a service to the student body, the Austinite Poll per iodically gets the students viewpoint on pertinent questions and the Austinite Club conducts other polls and elections. The Austinites are always eager to contribute their efforts toward any wor thwhile project that is of interest to, or for- the better- ment of, the student body and the school.

Amitie was the first girls ' social club formed on the S.F.A. campus, and it has never lost its sparkle. This has been proven countless times — one of which was with the presentation of the original " Hawaiian Isle " summer dance recently. The club showed its lively school spirit in helping to make the 1951 Homecoming a success with its float and dinner for its exes, which were carried out with the " Hats off to the Exes " theme. Christmas spirit was symbolized by a dinner-dance and by a joint Austinite- Amitie Christmas Dance for the entire school. Individually, the Amities have brought honor to the club by being selected to represent various clubs and organizations as duchesses and beauties, with one of the members being voted a princess in the annual Homecoming corona- tion. Together, the members strive to make the club better than ever! Yes, every Amitie proves herself to have three qualities: Friendliness, Loyalty, and Good Sportsmanship.

The Lumberjack cheerleaders, true to tradition, have been on hand to lead the student body in yells at all foot- ball and basketball games and at all pep rallies. In their flashing purple and white uniforms, they have led our teams to battle and have then proved to be faithful in either victory or defeat. Their voices, the loudest of all, are still ringing in our ears as they shout, " Fight, Jacks, Fight. Back row: Bobby Beard, Hubert McCrary, Jimmy Hooper. Front row: Elizabeth " Boots " Goodwin, Faye Bennett, Tommie Johnson. The 1951-52 season found the Stephen F. Austin State College basketball team compiling its best record in several years. Although Coach Glen Rose ' s Lumberjacks failed to win the Lone Star Conference championship, finishing behind the great Southwest Texas team, they showed the best record in the conference for an SFA team since 1948-49. And the number of games won all season by the Axmen surpassed the total for any year since 1940-41. BASKETBALL 1952 Paul (Buster) Alford Ted Asimos Keith Barnett Jackie Bond The 1951-52 basketball season at Stephen F. Aus- tin State College saw Coach Glen Rose complet- ing his fourth and final season here. Shortly after the end of the campaign, in which his Lumber- jacks compiled one of the most impressive records in years, the soft-spoken coach resigned to return to his alma mater, the University of Arkansas, as head basketball coach. There, Rose will again take over the job which he brought fame to be- fore World War II. At Arkansas in nine seasons, Rose-coached teams won five Southwest Confer- ence championships. The many students and countless other friends of Coach Rose, regretting to see him leave, wish him yet continued success. Lumberjacks ' Ted Asimos, picture at left, fires free throw to record one of 18 points he made in pacing SFA to 77-57 win here over Austin College. At right, Jackie Bond, of SFA, goes high in air with Centenary ' s George Hoke in tilt in Shreveport. ' Jacks won thriller, 67-65. Kelsey Moore Leroy Lusk Leonard Lamb Enoch Herrington Gerald Heffernan Dale Gosnell Dogged determination and a real will to win characterized the 1951-52 Lumberjack basketeers. Often outmanned, they were seldom outfought. In more than half of their games, the Axmen surged from behind in the third and fourth guarters to turn what appeared to be certain defeat into victory. As their noted Coach Glen Rose said: " The boys have been money players, coming through almost every time when the pressure was decidedly on. " In addition to the starting five — Ted Asimos, Jackie Bond, Herbert Branch, Gerald Cecil, and Leonard Lamb, three top-notch reserves reflected this determination and will to win. The spot play of Paul (Buster) Alford, Bobby Flana- gan, and Kelsey Moore, who did yoeman service spelling the starters, saved more than a few games. And, of course, those players seeing limited service in games yet per- formed invaluably in practice and many other ways, including: Keith Barnett, Donald Bone, Dale Gosnell, Enoch Herrington, Gerald Heffernan, and Leroy Lusk. To them all: a rousing WELL DONE! Leonard Lamb goes high to lay in basket against Centenary in Shreveport. In leading his team in scoring this season, Ted Asimos passed the one thousand mark for his four- year career at Stephen F. Austin State College. The achievement placed the all-conference guard from Texarkana in a select class with former Teammate James Johnston. Only those two have scored 1,000 or more points here. During the 1950-51 campaign, Asimos enjoyed the distinction of scoring more points in a single game — 41 against Rice Institute — than any other player in the nation. Many other honors, including scholastic, have been won by the Alpha Chi athlete. Sharing scoring honors this year with Asimos have been Gerald Cecil and Leonard Lamb, second and third-ranking point-makers, re- spectively. Tireless Ted Asimos, number 53, takes one out of the hands of a stunned Centenary Gent. Better luck next time, fellow! The Stephen F. Austin State College Lumber- jacks compiled one of their finest records in years during the 1951-52 season, winning 20 of 24 games and finishing second in the Lone Star Conference with an 8-2 record. Only Southwest Texas, unbeaten all year, managed to beat the Lumberjacks in LSC play.

TRACK ■ 1 The Lumberjack track team, under the direction for the sec- ond straight year of R. W. Parker, continued to show im- provement. It did so, too, in the face of some of the toughest opposition faced in years by SFA thinly clads. During the season, the ' Jacks participated in such meets as: Border Olympics in Laredo, Fort Worth Recreational, Southwestern Louisiana Institute in Lafayette, all-college in San Marcos, Texas Relays in Austin, Houston University in Nacogdoches, and Lone Star Conference in Beaumont.

They took up where last year ' s fine team, un- beaten in regular play and high ranking in the Lone Star Conference matches, left off. And the season found the netters enjoying consider- able success. Truman Milling goes high for one. Picture 1 — Joe Pinson takes a cut. Picture 2 — Pinson and Milling doubles ' combination.

Austin is to provide good whole- some activities for those students who are not members of the var- sity squad in the sport being played. A program is set up which includes football, basket- ball, volleyball, and softball. The 1951 intramural champion- ship was won by t he Forester Club; however the activities this year have not been completed in all divisions. Pictured here are shots of the in- tramural basketball action. Com- petition this season was keen among the thirteen teams enter- ing the tournament. Included were the Sawyers, Rebels, Wet- termarks, Austinites, Lufkin team, Campus Trotters, Foresters, Hun- gry 5, Porkers, Lambda Gammas, Roughnecks, Fast 5, and Jolly Jaxs.

The Purple Aces, winner of the intramural basketball tournament, consisted of Shirley Grigsby, Sue Ash- wood, Jo Bess Jennings, Betty Durrett, Doris Rae La- vine, Virginia Brown, Charlotte Brazil, Barbara Moody, and Rheta Smith.

Austin, have looked through this, the 1952 Stone Fort, I sincerely hope that you have found much to please you — much that you consider to be typical of S.F.A. If you think that a true, lasting picture of this school year is portrayed in the book, then the aim of the staff has been fulfilled. The publication of this annual has rested largely on the ex- cellent cooperation of the student body, faculty members, and advertisers; however special attention goes to Weldon Wright, sponsor, who has helped the staff over many rough spots with his calmness, faithfulness, and efficiency. Sincere thanks goes to Robert S. See and staff of the Shreveport Engraving Company; Dustyn Zimmerman and Mrs. Mabel Faulkner, commercial artists who did the art work; Edwin Gaston and Lawrence Franks, fac- ulty advisors; and George Shorter, who made the excellent photographs. The assistance, patience, guidance, and diligence of these have made the editorship of this book an enjoyable, profitable experience — one which I will always proudly re- member.
