For this reason, those activities that were held had strong support, since those who took part had to meet before or after school. The activities pictured represent those which Amherst students have always found of great interest, and which are part of the tradition of this school. Some activities were left high and dry by the sudden departure of male mem- bers of the faculty into the armed forces. In the coming year, because of the increased demand of our Government for fighting men, this condition will undoubtedly become more serious. Students must understand that if less activities are offered, for the reason just mentioned, that it is their duty to give the fullest support to those which are offered. This will make every Am- herst extracurricular activity of high quality, and of real Worth to those par- ticipating. ,THE TOWER 44 ACTIVITIES THE TOWER FOOTB LL SQU D Amherst Amherst Amherst Amherst Amherst .'

THE TOWER 46 BALL Striving to better last year's record of 3 wins and 4 losses, the Amherst gridders found a difficult task before them. Coach lVIilt Bergman accepted, as a challenge to his excellent coaching ability, an inexperienced squad, and prepared them for the 7 all-important pigskin conflicts. To open the 1942 season, Amherst clashed with Leroy on the latter's field in a night game. The opening kickoff brought together 22 eager and tense football players. Unable to overcome a decided weight advantage possessed by the Leroy eleven, Amherst bowed down in defeat in the final period by the close score of 19 to 25. An intensely warm day greeted the Amherst and Hamburg boys as they trotted out onto the opponents, field. New power and fine play enabled Hamburg to score an easy 19 to 0 victory. A glance at the conference standings proves the powerhouse contained by Hamburg. They concluded their schedule undefeated. A fluke play in the final minutes of the East Aurora game, handed the Tigers their third defeat. A loose ball was grabbed on the 40 yard line and carried over the goal for the game's only score. The mid-point of the Amherst schedule had now been reached. As agreed by Coach Milt Bergman, "The team just wasnit click- mgf, Finding little aerial opposition, Arthur Higgins and Tom Schmidt bulleted the inflated leather over the Lancaster team for Amherst's first triumph. Respective plunges by Tom Schmidt, Art Higgins, and Bob Pierce accounted for Amherst's 19 points. The invaders were held scoreless. Capitalizing on a bad center, which rolled behind the Tiger's goal, Akron took a Q to 0 lead over Amherst. Fumbles and penalties proved to be the most constant ground gainer in paving the way for the Winning. Amherst touchdown. The game ended 6 to Q. The yearly classic with our rivals, Williamsville, ended in defeat by the usual 6 points. Jack Carpenter excelled in this game by tearing gaping holes in the opponents' line. Homer Babbidge kept the Williamsville gridders on the alert by his cleverness at calling the plays. In spite of continued ground gains by Bob Pierce, Am- herst was unable to outscore her rivals. Three short passes ac- counted for Williamsville's goal while Bob Pierce, in a dive over center chalked up the sole 6 points for Amherst. ' In a drawn-out maul, the Amherst varsity topped off the season with a 20 to 0 victory over Depew. A fine exhibition of spirit and sportsmanship prevailed in the football games throughout the year. The position of fifth place at which the Amherst team found themselves at the end of the season does not indicate an unsuccessful year. Much was learned and valuable experience gained in the gridiron tussels of 1942 which augurs Well for next yearis prospects. 47 THE TOWER ROGER SHARP JUSTIN KUEHLING DAVE JOHNSTON JACK CARPENTER SEASON SUMMARY The 1943 basketeers finished the greatest record in Amherst hardwood history. After three Weeks of hard practice the stage was set for coach Hettler's boys to start the play which did not end until eighteen consecutive victories and a championship had been tucked away. This was coach Bob'Hettler,s third year as basketball head at Amherst and we wish to congratulate him on not only his splendid accomplishment but also on the fighting spirit and sportsmanship attitude he instilledin the players. A well balanced and smooth working quintet with capable reserves was the foundation for our valiant team. Ambi- dextrous Captain Ted Redlein took the season's scoring laurels with 161 points. The Amherst Tigers started the season with a bang, playing their first exceptional game against Lancaster. The first highlight of the season was the contest with VVilliamsville in which Jack Carpenter broke a 23 dead- lock in the iinal second of play. Dick Baum and Dave Johnston distinguished themselves on the back boards. The return engagement with Williamsville saw our boys play their Hnest game, seldom missing the meshes. The climax of the season came when the Amherst hoopsters met the highly rated Hamburg court aggrega- tion. The loss of Justin Kuehling and Dick Baum shortly before this game lowered our hopes of an undefeated season to a minimum. Using the reserves, Bill Mugler and Arthur Higgins, coach Hettler watched his boys assure themselves the Northern Erie County title by this bril- DICK BAUM lrant 36 to 31 win over Hamburg. The Amherst students will long remember with pride and esteem our champions of 1943.

THE 1942 CHAMPIONS Northern Erie County League Summary . An air-tight infield and superb pitching supplemented with plenty of hitting power resulted in Amherst's first baseball cham- pionship. Justin Kuehling, Winning 8 of the 9 games he pitched, kept the opponents dizzy with his speed ball while Art Higgins, Bob Edgecomb, and Dave Johnston were the batting heroes av- eraging 389, 367, 348 percentages, respectively.

X Non-League games 53 1 THE TOWER ARgugi?dEINS Track Squad l SOCCER Amherst's soccer team had a fairly good season in a period which brought about many innovations for'the team. Due to the restrictions on chartered bus travel, the team traveled by public carrier. For the same reason, plans for a formal league were discarded but eight games were played. Amherst won Q, tied 3, and lost 3, finishing tied for second place among 5 teams. 9 goals were scored by Amherst and 13 against us. Of the many on the team who could be mentioned, Don Suraf is outstanding for his good work in the goal. Co-captains, Kuehling and Haag, supplied the necessary drive, and will be missed next year.,Many players developed to the point where prospects for next year are encouraging. Fellows who come out for soccer will find it is a real man's game once they get familiar with it. Amherst . . Amherst . .

Due to the fact that many schools curtailed then spring sports schedule because of trans- portation difficulties and the lack of coaching personnel Amherst began their track season with mixed feelings. About thirty boys, eager to get going, came out at the first track call, among them being the following veterans from last year: Bob Pierce, Carl Dalton, Vaughan llilillane, Lloyd Johnson, Eugene Hasselbeck and Bill Giesz. Our last year's 880 relay team was defeated once and that in the sectional finals held at T Lakewood, This team consisted of Bob Pierce, Carl Dalton, Lloyd Johnson and Bob Mary- anski, with Reese Foote as alternate.

The Girls Sport Council has been very active this year. At most of the sports events you have seen a number of the members of the Sport Council selling refreshments. Money earned this way is used for their many expenses. Something entirely new and worthwhile was added this year. Now, when we honor our "All Around Girl" at gradua- tion, we will have a beautiful cup on which to engrave her name. This was purchased by the Sport Council. Much time is spent by Sport Council members compiling the number of activities points for all the girls in their homerooms. Seniors with the required points are honored at the girls biggest affair, the Sport Council Banquet. The Sport Council, and adviser, Miss Isabel Craik, are to be commended for their fine Work. ir ak i' ir ir Under the capable direction of Miss Craik, the girls had an excellent sport program this year, as usual. Soccer and hockey were played until Old Man Winter rolled along. Once again the orange and black teams were chos- en. In this way the girls added credits to their Amherst "A", which is obtained by earning 1000 points. Next in the line of seasonal sports was basketball, played every Friday. The girls all agreed that this was one of their favorite sports. Intramurals were also held between the homerooms. The pool also got a great deal of use from tl1e energetic support of the swimming team, which convened every Tuesday. The gala Water Follies was given with much enthusiasm andthe proceeds went to the 'Red Cross. During the season, many playdays were planned with other schools. The schools couldn't compete with each other, so teams were chosen by the picked captains. Two of these playdays were held with Clarence and Williamsville.. The sportsmanship displayed was envied by all who witnessed the events.

Meeting every Thursday, the girls cooperated Very well and were able to do two major projects this year. The first of these was the Nutcracker Suite, presented at Christmas time. The new type of program was very well re- ceived by an audience unaccustomed to anything of this sort presented at school. With similar enthusiasm, The Peer Gynt Suite was another success for the Dance Club. By having four different girls portray Peer Gynt in different num- bers, it gave a chance to more girls to display their talents. hearsing for one of the Dance Club programs. , .V , M .,,A v,.w-M,.,,U-N E 2 ,E V THE TOWER 60 THE MMKI -ua T H .

"Junior Aviation", as the course is called, provides ex- periences in many of the practical aspects of avia- tion such as aircraft structures, aerodynamics, meteorology, code, air navigation and aircraft. engines. Classroom theory is coupled with prac- tical work in the aviation shop which has been equipped with several airplanes, engines, instru- ments and other aircraft materials. The experi- ences gained in this course should be of inestim- able value to those who plan to engage in civil aviation in the future as well as those who enter the air branches of our armed forces.
