134414 LO 5111 STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE NACOGDOCHES, STONE FORT reflections o j 1953 The 1952-53 school year has been memor- able for many reasons at Stephen F. Austin State College. In this issue of the Stone Fort yearbook, we have attempted to portray in picture and word the spirit of the times. Through the years, we hope, you will find the work a product to be cherished as a faithful chronicle of those precious days spent on the campus of " the college among the pines. " RUBY CHILDERS, Editor and staff Dr. Birdwell Honored at Homecoming MMtflTT Y. AUSTIN STATE COLLEC? NACOGDOCHES. TEXAS Campus Drive OF CAMPUS L I F Senior Sock Hop Smiling Service at Luncheonette IN THE CLASSROOM Just as every year, 1952-53 opened with students going through the familiar motions of registering, meeting new and old friends and faculty members, and getting introduced to the classroom routine. Thomas J. Rusk Building Science Building IN THE LABORATORY The laboratories of the Science building command much of the student ' s time. So in 1952-53 could be seen and heard the flash of test tubes in the afternoon sun, the sounds of research training the doctors, dentists, nurses, scientists, and technicians of to- morrow. OF ACTIVITIES... A multitude of outside activities, bringing relaxation from books and lectures, came often and enjoyably during the year. The first big undertaking, Homecoming, fea- tured colorful floats sponsored by the clubs and the dance with music by Hal Mclntyre ' s orchestra. Terry and Key honor Queen Doris Pittman Wisely Hall Men ' s Dormitory Gibbs Hall Women ' s Dormitory PROFESSIONAL AND SOCIAL Baptist Bible Chair Both professional and social ac- tivities interest students during their leisure hours. A combination of the two pursuits is evident in the programs of the two campus Bible chairs — Baptist and Meth- odist. These institutions in addi- tion to providing religious instruc- tion and training also sponsor many delightful activities during the year. 1952-53 proved no ex- ception. SERIOUS AND FUN Dances almost every week attracted SFA students during the year. These ranged from the formality of the Homecoming ball, and other annual club functions, to the gay informality of the Sock Hop, Sadie Haw- kin ' s struggle, and many others. Dance Ticket Dormitory for Senior Women Ferguson Hall Men ' s Dormitory OF FRIENDSHIP... First friendships often prove the most lasting. Thus it is that the persons — faculty and students — met in college generally remain your good and close friends for life. 1952- 53 found this true at SFA. Gunter Memorial (Wesley) Bible Chair 1 OLD AND NEW A happy blend of old and new friendship was evi- dent during the 1952 Homecoming celebration. Members of the 1923 faculty, the first at SFA, ap- peared in a body during the activities of the day dedicated to Dr. A. W. Birdwell, president emeritus of the College. They welcomed back to the campus the students of yesterday and worked with those of today in staging the celebration. SFA first faculty members, Shelton and Blount, front, Pritchett and Wilkin, back, ride in Homecoming parade. Student Union Building Physical Education Building " ALL Coffee Time at the SUB HAIL TO S F A " These Stone Fort reflections of 1952-53 — of campus life ... in the classroom, in the lab- oratory ... of activities, professional and social, serious and fun ... of friendship, old and new — sum up the times that have been ours ' . While they constitute a record of the past, they also serve as a reserve to be drawn upon as a guide and inspiration for success- ful living today and tomorrow. SCHOOL SPIRIT OF OLD All that SFA is today can be attributed to planning and work of yesteryears, just as any product is the flower of seeds sown earlier. Were it not for a keen school spirit born of old, a proud tradition, we of this day and year could not enjoy the many advantages that are afforded us. And just as we have benefited from those who went before us, so shall the students of tomorrow have greater opportunities on this campus because we have passed this way. The Old Stone Fort Museum THE BOARD OF REGENTS Honorable W. H. Frank Barnes Terrell, Texas Miss Emma Mae Brotze Marshall, Texas Hi- Honorable John C. Calhoun Corsicana, Texas Honorable Newton S. Harrell Claude, Texas Honorable Claude Isbell Secretary, Austin, Texas Honorable William L. Kerr Midland, Texas Honorable Charles P. McGaha Wichita Falls, Texas Honorable Hubert L. Mills Houston, Texas Honorable Frank White Groveton, Texas Honorable Jack Woodward Dallas, Texas DR. A. W. BIRDWELL 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 women, 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. PRESIDENT AND MRS. PAUL L. BOYNTON PRESIDENT OF S FA To each of the 1953 graduates we wish to extend our warmest congratulations for having done a good job, and our sincerest hopes for a profitable, wholesome, active, and enjoyable life in the years which lie ahead. To the families and friends of all we wish to express our appreciation for the efforts which you have expended to help these, our grad- uates, learn much and live well during their sojourn with us. College graduation is an event which all of us approach with mixed emotions each time. We who have been so fortunate as to be permitted to work and associate with those of the graduating classes naturally regret to see them leave. It means a severing of personal ties, a loss of pleasant and satisfying daily contacts. Yet we have a fullness of pride at each commencement season in seeing our newest group achieve long-sought goals, and attain merited recognition as trained, qualified citizens and leaders. To you who are graduating we say, " We hate to see you leave these forty acres, but we are thrilled at the opportuni- ties which are yours, opportunities which you have earned and for which we know that you are qualified. " So SFA bids you adieu with confidence, and pride, and with the hope that through the years you will want to visit us often, and will look back on the College as your home away from home. PAUL L.

Austin State College and to the institution itself, the Ex-Students ' Association performs a multitude of functions. It maintains a campus office, headed by the executive secretary, as the clearing house for all activities. Through this office the Association keeps in touch with ex-students, maintains records and mailing addresses, publishes alumni news each month, and provides many other services. Officers of the Associa- tion furnish the leadership for organizing and supporting local ex-student clubs, enlisting members for the parent organization, and carrying out projects of all types. Among these projects, Homecoming each fall and the A. W. Birdwell Scholarship Fund rank foremost. From the very start, the Ex-Students ' Association has enjoyed splendid support from all concerned with its activi- ties. And it has continued to grow in function and size. Under able leadership, it looks forward to further expansion, confident that all goals will be reached. WALTER C. TODD President TRAVIS N. PRICE MRS. JIM STALLINGS EDWIN W. GASTON, JR.

YOUNGBLOOD Guard LUMBERJACK The 1952-53 basketball season at Stephen F. Austin State College proved highly successful. Playing for the first time under Coach John O. Stephens, who c ame here in April of 1952 replacing Glen Rose, the Lumber- jacks swept to 15 victories against nine defeats. In Lone Star Conference play, the Axmen won six of 10 games to finish third. For the season, the SFA cagers tallied 1699 points, second only to Southwest Texas which set a new Conference team scoring record. The field goal and free throw shooting averages of .386 and .610, re- spectively, compiled by the ' Jacks came as the highest in many seasons. JOHN O.

GEMAR BATTISE JACKIE BOND BOBBY FLANAGAN BILL GANDY i t LLOYD GILES JOE JOHNSON NORRIS JOHNSON LEONARD LAMB WILL O. MOORE MURRAY SHAW THRILL IN Thrilling games featured the 1952-53 basketball season. Of the 24 tilts played by SFA, five were won in the fading minutes of play — two of them in overtime periods. The Sam Houston games, here and there, prove a case in point. With Sam Houston leading 73-72 and five sec- onds left to play in the game here January 5, Gerald Cecil fired a field goal from near the mid-court mark to give SFA the win, 74-73. And in Huntsville February 24, Sam Houston held a four-point lead with only 15 seconds left. In fireball fashion, SFA tied the score and went on to win in overtime. An overtime win also was recorded by SFA over Texas Wesleyan, champion of the Big State Conference. Gerald Cecil of SFA goes up for a field goal.

And the performance of the Lumberjack thinly clads proved in keeping with the quality of the schedule. Sparking the team, Milers Joe Evans and Gerald Cheney took up from where they left off in 1952, when then finished first and second, respectively, in the Lone Star Conference. Alfred Parker, middle-distance runner, Baldwin Thompson, and others stood out for the Ax- men, too. The schedule included meets in Fort Worth, San Marcos, Austin, Denton, Commerce, Huntsville, and Nacogdoches.

C H E E R L E A D E R S ' 53 Six cheerleaders, led by Charles (Soap) Martin, gen- erated enthusiasm for the Lumberjack intercollegiate athletic teams during 1952-53. At football and bas- ketball games, particularly, these students stuck with the ' Jacks through good times and bad, never losing heart. On the road as well as at home, they followed the teams, taking with them large groups of other students to lend support with cheers and shouts of encouragement. In addition to Martin, cheerleaders included: Anne Harris, Iris Bradberry, Jack Dillon, Juanita Vick, and H. N. McElroy. Smartly outfitted in white sweaters, with purple emblems of megaphones carrying the letters " SFA " in white, white trousers and skirts, and purple shirts, the cheerleaders added a dash of color as well as enthusiasm to every contest. Serving as sponsor of the cheerleaders was Dr. Lucille Norton. MEN ' S INTRAMURALS Championship competition in four major sports comprises much of the men ' s intra- mural program at SFA. In football during 1952-53, the Wesley Foundation team cap- tured the pennant. Winners in basketball, volleyball, and track had not been deter- mined when the yearbook went to press. This year, Charles Ellis served as director of men ' s intramurals, sponsored by the men ' s department of physical education. W. W. Dossey headed the department. WOMEN ' Under the sponsorship of the Women ' s Physical Education Department, a bal- anced program of sports is conducted at SFA. Open to all co-eds, competition includes the intramural program in vol- leyball, speedball, basketball, field hockey, softball, and tennis. Many other sports events round out the program. Individual champions in various sports won acclaim at SFA. Shown in the three pictures at left on this page are some of these champions. They include: Shirley Grigsby, bowling, top; Faye Ballow, basketball free-throw, center; and Kathleen Cheever, archery.

THE STUDENT OFFICERS HUBERT POSKEY President JOE FRANK HIGNETT Vice-president VIRGINIA RICHEY Secretary DEAN MARY THOMSON DEAN R. H. SHELTON Sponsors HUBERT POSKEY President The Student Congress of Stephen F. Austin State College exists, according to its constitution, " to insure the personal rights and liberties of the individual student and to form a more perfect union and secure the welfare of the students within this union. " In keeping with its expressed purposes, the Student Congress during 1952-53 undertook several major projects. One of the most important projects undertaken this year or any year by the SFA Student Congress was that of encourag- ing better sportsmanship within the Lone Star Athletic Con- ference. Under the leadership of SFA, several member colleges of the conference formulated a plan for accomplish- ing this goal. The plan at the February deadline for yearbook copy remained to be adopted. SENIOR REPRESENTATIVES JUNIOR REPRESENTATIVES C ' .iarlos Reeve;, Jimmy Wo. ' ionev, Nolan Al-]crs, Dono d Bob Parris ' i Inot shown! R. G. Dean, Doy. ' o Thompson, Joe Evans CONGRESS AT S. F. A For financial support of its activities, the Stu- dent Congress at SFA draws on several sources. Soft drink and food vending machines, from which the organization receives a commission, serve as one source. And this spring another source was added, when the Student Congress passed legislation assessing each student in Col- lege a fee of twenty-five cents. Energetic leadership was evidenced in student government this year. Directed by a group of capable officers, the Student Congress members worked conscientiously on all projects under- taken by the organization. As President Hubert Poskey said, " The success achieved this year by the Student Congress has come through team- work.

MEMBERS OF THE STAFF IN 1953 The 1953 Stone Fort comes as the twenty-ninth yearbook publication of Stephen F. Austin State College. With such a rich background of tradition to draw on, the staff of this edition has concentrated on combining the best of the past with that of the present to give readers an outstanding publication. Credit for the work must go to all oi the staff members, whose names appear on the opposite page, as well as all others having a part in its production. THE PINE LOG. MEMBERS The Pine Log, weekly newspaper publication of the Stephen F. Austin State College student body, in the 1952-53 school year celebrated its twenty- fifth birthday. Under the direction of Editor Len Neff, the paper stressed objective reporting of all significant events on the campus, with particular emphasis on pictorial journalism. Sharing equal responsibility with the editor in making The Pine Log operation highly successful has been Business Manager Bob Claiborne. FLs duties consisted mainly of soliciting the local and national advertising, financial backbone of any newspaper, and handling other fiscal matters. In addition, Claiborne on many occasions also helped in the editorial department. Contributing, too, to the success of The Pine Log have been all the students writing for the publi- cation. While space does not permit special recog- nition of all there are these who must be singled out: Virginia Richey, associate editor; Hubert Poskey and Billy Murchison, sports; Elizabeth Gardner, feature writer; and Lynda Young and Pat Swift, staff writers. Special thanks also go to Dr. C. F. Sheley, SFA faculty member, for his penetrating analysis of foreign affairs, and to Dee Walker, famed Texas poet and former student of the college, who edited the paper ' s poetry column. OF THE ' 52 - ' 53 STAFF H. N. McElroy, clever with pen and word, served as cartoonist this year for The Pine Log. Whether drawing humorous or seri- ous cartoons, McElroy proved equally effective. His works ranked high in con- tests sponsored by the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association.

At the beginning of the year, it played for halftime ceremonies at college tootball games here and away. Perhaps the top performance of the year came at Homecoming, when the Lumberjack band stood out in two parades and in impressive half- time ceremonies at the SFA-Sul Ross football yame. The band also played ;it basketball names, appeared in concert here and in other towns. Lending color and beauty to the Lumberjack band were the members of the front section. Heading this group, Doris Pittrnan served her third year as drum major. Assisting her as majorettes were Mary Jo Christian. Dawn Dillard. and Martha Ann Peters. Flag bearers for the band included Joyce Ball, Joyce Hillin, and Frances Ann Partin.

AUSTIN STATE COLLEGE NACOGDOCHES . TEXAS EDITOR ' S MESSAGE This has been Stephen F. Austin State College in 1952-53. Through pic- ture and the printed word we have attempted to make as accurate a presentation as possible. Whatever measure of success we have attained in this undertaking must be attributed to many. While space limitations make it impossible to give credit to all who co- operated so splendidly in bringing out The Stone Fort of 1953, there are groups and individuals deserving of special commendation. The Adminis- tration, faculty and staff, and student body, without whose help this year- book could not have come out, rate an emphatic " well done " and " sincere thanks. " And special thanks, too, must go to these individuals: Weldon Wright and Edwin W. Gaston Jr., faculty advisors; Robert S. See and staff of the Southwestern Engraving Company; and the photographers — D. M. Dandurant, Charles Robinson, Billy McCroskey. It has been a genuine pleasure to have served as editor of this yearbook. The experience is one which we shall always cherish. And as years unfold, we hope that you, the reader, shall find a large degree of satisfaction in the product.
