HE YEAR 1940 marks the Tenth Anniversary of Amherst Central High School. During the first year
of the school's operation, 285 pupils were enrolledg today, well over one thousand boys and girls attend Arimherst.
V' hen the cornerstone of the Main Building was laid oh Washingtorfs Birthday in 1930, community rowth
was taken into account and ample building space was provided. But the rapid growth in population necessitated
additions to the School in 1937. Into the school plant has gone a total investment of approximately 81,21 2,000
of which 89591100 was expended for the original site, buildings, and equipment. x
Amherst Central High School now enjoys one of the most adequate secondary school plants to be ound.
On a twenty and a half acre site, there is ample space for the physical as well as the mental developnient of
the student. Three buildings joined by cloistered passageways house auditorium, gymnasium, swimmin pool,
cafeteria, library, administrative space, and sixty rooms available for classdnstruction, including labor tories,
shops, and study halls. 1

SINCE WE BELIEVE THAT THE FIRST TEN YEARS
OF AMHERST CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL'S EXISTENCE
HAVE BEEN EXCEPTIONALLY NOTABLE AND UNIQUE
IN MANY RESPECTS, THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY
OF OUR SCHOOL HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS THE TIIEME
OF THIS, OUR SENIOR ANNUAL.
UPON REVIEYVING THE PAST TEN YEARS, WE
HAVE FOUND CHARACTERIZING AMHERST, THESE
THREE THINGS . . THE ENTHUSIASTIC AND INFOR-
MAL SPIRIT OF THE STUDENT BODY AND TIIE FACUL-
TY . . THE NUMEROUS HONORS AND ACHIEVEMENTS . .
AND LASTLY, THE IMPRESSIVE ARCHITECTURE OF A
FINE SCHOOL. WTITH THESE CHARACTERISTICS IN
MIND IVE HAVE ATTEMPTED TO SHOW? A RECORD OF
OUR SCHOOL IN ITS TENTH YEAR, A RECORD WHICH
BEST PORTRAYS THE NAMHERST SPIRITI' OF TEN
WHILE, OBVIOUSLY, IT IS DIFFICULT TO PORTRAY
ANYTHING SO INTANGIBLE, WE HAVE MADE A SPE-
CIAL EFFORT T0 EXPRESS OURSELVES THROUGH
THE USE OF EXCEPTIONAL ART WORK, INFORMAL
SNAPSHOTS, STRIKING COLORWORK, AND UNUSUAL
FEATURES. MAY THESE PAGES CONVEY TO YOU A
TRUE PICTURE OF THE LIFE AT AMHERST IN ITS
TENTH YEAR, WITH A REMINDER THAT 'TEN YEARS
OF SUCCESSFUL EFFORT HAVE MADE AMHERST WHAT
IT IS TODAY! '

WHEN XVE OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1940 LOOKED ABOUT FOR AN INDIVIDUAL
TO WHOM WE MIGHT DEDICATE OUR YEARBOOK, WE SOUGHT ONE WHO, DURING
THE PAST YEARS, HAD MADE OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO AMHERST'S
FINE RECORD OF ACHIEVEINIENT. ALTHOUGH XVE FOUND MANY WHOSE WORK
SHOULD NOT BE OVERLOOKED, ONE IN PARTICULAR STOOD OUT FOR SPECIAL
IN DEDICATING THIS, OUR SENIOR ANNUAL, TO MR. PAUL M. KING, WE ARE
ATTEMPTING TO EXPRESS THE GRATITUDE OF NOT ONLY THE SENIOR CLASS,
BUT ALSO OF THE ENTIRE SCHOOL FOR HIS EFFORTS IN THEIR BEHALF.

History of the Alma Mater:-
As a result of a campaign conducted last year by the Student Council, the verses by Glenn
llurray of the Class of 1939, printed above, were adopted for our school Alma Mater. Since then,
in the absence of original music, we have sung them to the music of the Cornell Alma Mater.
The adoption of the words for an Alma Llater is truly one of the highlights of Amherst's first
ten years. It will remain for future classes to provide appropriate music for these fine words . . .
THROUGH TEN YEARS, THE FACULTY HAS GUIDED THE
ACTIVITIES AND SCHOLARSHIP OF THE AMHERST
STUDENT BODY TO INCREASINGLY HIGHER STANDARDS
Phillp A Schweickhard
Besides being the Tenth Anniversary of Amherst Central High School, the year
1940 is also thc tenth anniversary of Bit. Philip A. Schweickhard, our principal.
Ten years ago he came to Snyder from hlinnesota, at that time already with twenty
year's school experience behind him. Wvith enthusiasm and ambition he began to
do things that made people realize that Amherst Central would 11ot be long in
gaining fame, recognition, and a lasting reputation in the school world. Honor
after honor, in scholarship, music, athletics, dramatics, and the like, have come to
our school, to no small degree through his interest in and his support of school
activities. If now, at this Tenth Anniversary, he looks hack with pride at the growth
of our fine school, we should not forego him this pleasure for it is pardonable. It
is work well done.

The Tower is the yearbook
of Amherst. Each year a new
staff is chosen from members
of the Senior Class. The staff
commences its work as soon as
school opens in September and
continues until school closes
in June. During the year a
variety of projects are promot-
ed, all of which help to build
up school spirit, as well as to
provide funds to help defray
the cost of the yearbook. In
genrral, work on the Tower

Because of a broadening of the activity program this past year a much larger percentage
of the school body was able to take part in this aspect of Amherst student life.
New activities added to the list of seventh hour pursuits included archery, shuflleboard,
wrestling, and others.
It was impossible in the limited scope of our annual, to picture all activities, hence, we
chose a representative group.

As the last groan died away November 4th, people began to think that Amherst still had a
good season. Even a great tean1 like Notre Dame couldn't go through a suicide schedule without
some defeats. So it was with Amherst this yearg none of the seven games could be called a "breather,'.
Pine Hill came to Snyder on the 23rd of September, intent upon revenge for last year's over-
whelming defeat, but they were again turned back. The team was weak on it's running and kicking,
but showed favorable prospects for having a good passing attack. These weaknesses were excused
because they only had a few weeks" practice behind them.
This year two new schools appeared on the schedule, Leroy and East Aurora. Leroy showed
by far the most might. The game will stand out because it was played under lightsg playing was
difiicult because the rain had made the field wet and muddy.
The crushing defeat handed to us by Depew was eased a little by the brilliant victories over the
Thomas Indians alld the much feared East Aurora and Lancaster elevens. The cause of that first
defeat is attributed to the fact that Amherst was out-weighed by about thirty-five pounds in the
line and backfield. It seemed that it was their off-day, because on the next Friday night the team
drove out to Lancaster and beat them decisively by a 20 to 6 score.
There wasn't much to say about the bitter disappointment over the outcome of the Williams-
ville game. The supposedly weak Wrilliamsville squad, coached by Pat Murray, was a complete
surprise to the team and the Amherst rooters.
No outstanding boy could be pointed out this year because the team played more like a unit
than ever before, but special mention should be made of Al Vosseler, the captain, and "Arky"
Babbidge, the co-captain and quarterback.
The prospects for next year look anything but dull. Dave Roberts, Pat Higgins, Chuck Wfilliam-
son, Vern Glen, Hugo Gross, Carl Serra, and George Chisnell, all of them sophomore and junior
lettermen, will be back playing next year for Amherst, and gunning for a YVilliamsville defeat.

eight of the nine games lost, by a few points, but at the end of the season Amherst had picked up a total of
points above that of their opponents. Amherst lost one game by eleven points but was able to win one by eleven
points and another by twenty one points.
Widdoes, Robert Kerruish, Mr. Orgek, Coach.
This year's team was ably coached by Mr. Orgek, who instilled the "old fight" in the boys. We must admit
that the team scrapped their hardest until the final whistle. With Captain Shanks at guard, Mr. Orgek used
Tong, Schaeffer and Brenner as alternates at like posiiions. Higgins, Strobel, Naukam, Harrison, and Krantz
played the forward positions. The "middle men" were Cushing, Pierce and Wells.
This year's individual scoring honors were taken by Richie Shanks with Bud Cushing and Pat Higgins
close behind. The team took honors in the second Hamburg game when they came out on top with a 54-23 score.
The boys played their best in the first Depew game, the first half of the second Williamsville game, and the
last half of the second Lancaster game. An off form night and injuries combined at Hamburg to make our
poorest showing. Q
When the team ended with three straight wins, we were sure that the team and Mr. Orgek deserved our
respect. We sincerely believe that if "Lady Luck" had been more kind we would have had the winning one or
two points instead of them going to the opposition.

Soccer became a varsity sport at Amherst this year. Our soccer team played in tl1e Eric County
Interscholastic Soccer League. The teams that we played, with one exec tion, had had far more ex-
erience than our boys, but tl1ey did very well for their first season. The boys were coached by
lair. Clark who had 'previously assisted the football coaches. lylr. Orgek contributed to the success
of our first season by helping Mr. Clark.
The teams encountered in the League were North Collins. Nvoodlawn, Clarence, Gardenville,
Holland and Orchard Park. W'e scrimmaged with Park School, Nichols, and Dcveaux.
Judging by the record of the first season, we can expect great things from our soccer teams
in the future.
The Golf squad starts practice imme-
diately upon entering school in Septem-
ber. After a week of improvement on the
links, there are two qualification rounds,
liledal Play Rules prevailing. The lowest
four make u the team to represent Am-
herst. The lioys last fall were Eugene
Naukam, Bill Caudell, Tom Tobin, and
Teams played this year included De-
pew, Trott, LaSalle, Niagara Falls, Ken-
more, East Aurora, and Deveaux. The
,reatest fest which confronts the Golf
cam is the Niagara Falls Invitational
Tournament in June, in which thirteen
schools compete. Each school sends six
players, four of whom constitute the team.
A trophy is given to the team with the
lowest total, and another, to the individual
with the lowest score.
Last year C1938-391 Amherst registered
a clean sweep. The team captured the
group trophy and Eugene Naukam was
awarded the individual trophy.

Between the numerous tlmndershowers this spring, the track team could he seen doing
their laps around the football field. Under the instruction of Coach Steele tl1e squad made
rapid headway. Outstanding this year were Earl Tong. Ray Pierce, and Earl Capehart, as
well as many of the newcomers.
W'hile the team was handicapped by lack of material, they
won many points from their adversaries.
As a rule a team is handi-
capped by members graduat-
ing. This year lilr. Bush was
fortunate inhaving back the

The "Tower" of necessity goes to press early in tl1e spring. It is difficult to determine
the outcome of the baseball season before the majority of the games are played. Baseball
has been retarded considerably in this area by unfavorable weather this season. 'ive are
fortunate in having several young players who have won merit in the Junior Summer
leagues and are proving themselves excellent material thus far this season. We will not
boast of having a league winning team, but believe we have the best team we have had in

Girls' Sport Council
The chief function of the
Girls' Sport Council is to
promote girls' sportsman-
ship. In order to do this,
the Council sponsors a sys-
tem of awards and letters,
based upon a point system.
In addition, every year the
Council gives an award to
the best all-around girl in
the Senior class. The officers
of the Sport Council this
year were: li-Iartha Yvebster,
presidentg Alice Neilsen,
secretaryg and Louise Allen,

Allen, Donna Lockard, Carol Bagley, Iris Cave.
One of the most essential features of Amherst's
activity field is tl1e girls' sports program. Under
the capable direction of bliss Craik, the girls have
shown much enthusiasm and interest in this phase
of school life.
- With the mild September breezes, soccer and
hockey were ushered in to stay until the wintry
blasts terminated interest in those sports. Soccer
was divided into two teams: the Black, captained
by Lorraine Eber and the Orange, by Dolores
Ferrick. Hockey was divided in the same way:
Lillian Engasser serving as captain of the Black
team, rivaled by Jean Gristmacher of the Orange
team. The girls played twice a week until 4:30
p. nl. getting a good deal of fun out of their
participation in these sports.
Next ill the line of seasonal sports was basket-
ball. Many intramurals were held besides the
regular basketball team which practiced every
Friday. At this time, also, quite a few of the girls
took up swimming. Miss Daywood conducted a
life saving class and awarded badges of achieve-
ment to several Junior and Senior girls.
During the fall and continuing on through the
winter and spring were the badminton, tennis,
and ping pong ladder tournaments. These were
held on a competitive basis, a winner being able
to challenge the one girl above her and so proceed
up the ladder or down as the case might be.
Writh spring came baseball, one of this season's
surest signs. Keen interest in this sport was dem-
onstrated by the lively games played by Amherst's
One of tl1e larger and perhaps more important
projects undertaken by bliss Craik and her girls
was the dance exhibit held on May 24th. Depict-
ing the Civil YVar period we had darkies, Southern
belles, and Southern gentlemen dance in the
gymnasium for our enjoyment. An appreciative
audience filled the gym and received the dancing
in a very enthusiastic manner. On the same night
a fine showing was made in the pool with our
aquatic stars performing. This was done for the
benefit of both parents and students.
