the 1957 58391 s tone Fort STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE COLLEGE CONTENTS STUDENT LIFE PERSONALITIES FOREWORD The 1957 Stone Fort depicts a year at SFA — a year beginning in April, 1956, and closing March, 1957. For some, this book will contain the memories of their first year at college. For others, the 1957 Stone Fort will be the last memento of college life. But for all students, this book is intended as an aid to help you retrace your footsteps through a year at Stephen F. Austin State College. 1957 STONE FORT STAFF Betty Ann Yarborough murrkll tuornhill Carolyn Guest John Hardin Lester Edwin Gaston, Jr. Editor Assistant Editor Copy Editor Business Alanager Sponsor Mary Hood Tom McGee Joyce Hinton ASSISTANTS Dick Burnett Deanne Dunbar Penny Chadwick Lillian Singleton COMPETITION PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE Colleges are strikingly similar to parents. Both rejoice in each new arrival; both visualize each newcomer as a potential leader in some field or fields of human endeavor; both struggle to give their best to each one entrusted to their care; both sympathize in the tribulations and rejoice in the achievements of their charges; both hate to see the ties of wholesome daily admiration, and companionship snapped by the inevitable maturity which comes to all normal persons, each selfishly wishing that these bonds could remain forever; and yet both glow with the greatest of pride when their progeny actually go forth and reflect the sincerity and adequacy of their training by becoming strong, honorable, whole- some, capable men and women, so thinking, so working, so living that they reflect at all times the best in human existence. Naturally, we at Stephen F. Austin State College hate to see you, our 1956-57 grad- uates, leave these forty acres. You have become part of us. Nevertheless, we are proud of that which you already have accomplished, and are confident that you can and will reach many more goals of even greater personal consequence and social magnitude. We believe you possess the basic intellectual tools and academic skills needed to build lives of distinction. So for each of you we wish a full life-time of opportunities for hard, produc- tive, enjoyable work, work which will make you a compliment to yourself, your family, your friends, your nation, your college, and your Creator. Paul L. Boynton BOARD OF REGENTS Hubert L. Mills Houston J. S. Woodward President Dallas Miss Elizabeth Koch San Antonio C. Smith Ramsey San Augustine Richard F. Stovall Floydada It seems that, whenever man has wanted to preserve something, he has recorded it in a book. We are trying to preserve for you the 1956-57 year at Stephen F. Austin State College; thus we give you the ' 57 Stone Fort. We, the staff, hope that in the years to come this annual will bring back the fun- filled memories of a college year. These pages are our meager attempt to preserve for posterity the highlights of one year at S.F.A. This book is what might be termed a transition into a bigger and better annual for your college. Henceforth, the Stone Fort will contain the events from March of one school year to the March of another. This will allow the spring sports and events to be included in the annual. This book attempts to catch the most important moments of last spring in both the sports and social spheres, but we were somewhat handicapped in the picture department. We ask you to keep in mind that we worked with what we had. The putting together of a yearbook is a tedious task. We lost pictures, forgot to get pictures made, put pictures on incorrect pages; we did everything wrong that a person could possibly do. BUT, we redid it, and in good faith we are saying (with bated breath) that we believe that most of our wrongs have been righted. Special thanks go to Mr. Robinson, who never complained of our terrible picture- shooting schedule; to Mr. Gaston, who never became angry at our tardiness in getting things in on time; and to all those wonderful people who kept popping in and out of the office to give us a laugh when we needed one most. The ' 57 Stone Fort was ours. A lot of hard work and a lot of good fun went into its making. Yes, it was ours, but now it is yours. We hope you like it! Betty Ann Yarborough Stone Fort Editor STUDENT LIFE VET VILLAGE ORGANIZATIONS Students are the life of a college campus. You can hear the hum of activity as you see boys and girls walking to class, to the Sub, or back to the dorms. The following pages show a year full of people, the place where most of our married couples reside, our college where many footsteps have fallen through the years, and the organiza- tions that bind our student body together.

PUBLICATIONS STONE FORT An annual sets down in picture form the never-to-be-forgotten record of one school year. There is a lot of work, sweat, and tears that go into the pro- duction of a yearbook. Often the work becomes tedious, but when all is said and done the members of the annual staff will treasure always the memories that went into the making of the Stone Fort.

Fischer Coach James Canter Manager Daryl Zevely LUMBERJACK BASKETBALL The 1956-57 Lumberjack basketball team, which failed by one slim game of sharing in its second Lone Star Con- ference championship in as many seasons, compiled the best won-and-loss mark in 24 years for an SFA quintet. In winning 23 of 26 games, Coach John O. Stephens ' charges earned an average of .884, the best mark since the 1932-33 season and second-best in the history of the college. Moreover, they ranked first in the nation in de- fense, holding their opponents to an average of only 51.4 points per game. And they won the McNeese invitational tournament at Lake Charles and defeated every foe they met in Nacogdoches for the first time in more than a decade. The Axmen ' s success added additional lustre to Coach Stephens ' record, already one of the best in the Southwest, as well as to that of the institution, which for more than 30 years has been one of the nation ' s small- college cage powers. In five seasons at SFA, Stephens has guided teams to 92 victories in 128 contests, one conference championship, and one second- place finish. Overall, his college " coaching record stands at 154 victories in 239 games. In 33 seasons, SFA cage teams have won 446 of 682 games. And in 26 LSC campaigns they have won the championship nine times and finished second six times. Coach gives a few last-minute instructions. Coach John O.

Nix tallied 423 points to rank third in scoring, and snagged 251 re- bounds to finish fourth in this de- partment. Bobby Moore, who hit 109 of 135 free throws, ranked sec- ond. One of the highlights of the se son was the ' Jacks ' winning of tl McNeese tournament. Pitted again, NAIA defending champion Ml Neese, NAIA participant Sout eastern Oklahoma, and LSC pow Southwest Texas, SFA defeated M Neese and Southeastern to take tl crown. Victory in that competiti enabled the Lumberjacks also maintain their unblemished reco against non - conference opponer during the 1956-57 campaign.

F. A. College Bookstore " the Student Needs It... We Have It " IN APPRECIATION In January, 1957, John James Wilson, associate professor of education at Stephen F. Austin State College, officially closed out a 48-year career of service to public school and higher education. Associated since June, 1926, with SFA, where he came from work as a teacher and administrator in Texas public schools and at Western Kentucky State College, Mr. Wilson played an instrumental role in shaping the destiny of the youth of his day. Here he served first as director of the Demonstration School and then as a faculty member in the Department of Education. And many of his students themselves have gone on to serve as educators and to instill in their wards the high ideals of the SFA teacher. In view of Mr. Wilson ' s long and distinguished service to the cause of education, The Stone Fort of 1957 hereby expresses its appreciation and extends its best wishes in his retirement from active service. IN DEDICATION " But the poor dog, in life the firmest friend, The first to welcome, foremost to defend. " Byron Not many students have come and gone from Stephen F. Austin State College in the past few years without becoming acquainted with Tripod and Jess. They are likely to be found anywhere from the Art Department to the Birdwell Building and are two of the most well-known and best-loved figures on the cam- pus. Having been here for quite some time, they are simply and sincerely a part of this college. But the sweeping scythe of time is shortening their lives, and the day is drawing nigh when Tripod and Jess will be only mem- ories at SFA. For this reason, we, the 1957 Stone Fort staff, wish to pay tribute to these two by dedicating this yearbook to them. As Pope once said, " Histories are more full of examples of the fidelities of dogs than of friends. "
