DEDICATICN As we, the Class of 1944, look back over our memories and accomplishments at Amherst, we realize that our success was furthered to an immeasurable ,degree by our teachers and advisers. To one of these teachers we wish to extend our special appreciation. She has done her work quietly and thoroughly, yet she has endeared herself to all her classes and to all her acquaintances with her charming ways and pleasing manner. We are extremely proud to dedicate our yearbook to Miss Rix. THE TOWER 4 5 THE TOWER IN MEMORIAM PAUL M. KING EDRYCE KING Seated: Marion Jenzeu, Dorothy Dilts, Betty Reif, Irmgard Nierhaus.

SCHELLER ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL AT the very mention of Mr. Scheller's name every student Wh has been fortunate enough to attend his classes or to talk Wit him at any time declares his strong liking for this teacher an assistant principal. Mr. Scheller works diligently at his dutie: and he makes a success of practically every undertaking. Be cause of his sincerity and helpful manner, Mr. Scheller ha always been and isa favorite with all who know him. THE TOWER 12 I 13 THE TOWER MR. PHILIP S. SCHWEICKHARD MR. Schweickhard is an ideal principal, and Amherst is fortu- nate to have him at the head of the school. He cordially receives any student who turns to him for help or advice, and he is re- spected by the student body and by the faculty for the excep- tionally wonderful job that he has done in making Amherst the fine school that it is today. ON September seventh the lighthearted occupants of Amherst's halls and classrooms once more trickled through the newly polished doorways for another year of higher learning and mental anguish g of good times and new friends. They all recognized the significant Hag at half-mast which lent a note of sobriety never before present on the opening day. After filling out the usual flood of printed forms concerning their private and public lives the students met in assembly and were dismissed early. Everyone appreciated the miraculous lack of classes on the iirst day. After "trying on" his new classes to see how they'd fit, everyone .set- tled down for the semester or rearranged his schedule until it suited him or until the office decided that he had changed enough. Along with the changing of autumn leaves came the spirited football season. Vivid orange and black banners waved amidst the crowds of Amherstonians who filled the stands to cheer for their Tigers. Ticket sellers ran about recruiting customers, and hot dog sellers drew hungry spectators as if by magic. Losses were cheerfully accepted, and victories were joyfully celebrated. This is football at Amherst. A Thanksgiving turkeys were eaten during the four-day holiday, and students returned to school to climb the rest of the road to Christmas vacation. as ii S XT f? fi .

STUDENT COUNCIL VVITH two delegates from each homeroom and the sup- port of the entire school, the Student Council embarked upon their plans for the year. High goals were reached during spirited VVar Fund and Red Cross drives, and money was also raised for the Paul King Memorial Fund. The always enjoyable movies were again pre- sented by the Council, and a pat.riotic waste vpaper campaign was conducted during the second semester. Reese Foote held office as president this year with Mari- lyn Farmer as vice-president. WE, the Class of 1944, wish to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the members of the Board of Education for their service in our behalf. With the interests of the students of Amherst foremost in their minds, they gave unsparingly of their time and effort to promote and further high standards of education in the school and community.

When the confusion was over and the smoke cleared away, they were settled into those that pleased them the most and those which they found were helpful and recreation- al for themselves and their friends. JUNIOR RED CROSS CLUB THE Junior Red Cross Club under the direction of Miss Buddenhagen and Miss Simpson spent a busy year carrying out useful projects, among which were diaper-making and design- ing of tray decorations and menu holders for use in rest homes and hospitals. At Christmas time the girls made Christmas tree deco- rations for Army units stationed in and around Buffalo. They deserve much credit for their contributions to the war on the home-front.

Girls, Hi-Y was organized in November 1943. This club has two purposes: the National one -to create, maintain, and extend throughout the the school and community high standards of Christian characterg the local purpose -to serve the school. The ofhcers are as follows: Presi- dent-hiargery Metz, Vice President-Betty Mahoney Secretary - Grace Goetz- mann, Treasurer - Mary Steinmiller, Council Repre- sentatives-Ethel Baka and Betty Kamman. AMHERST CENTRAL High School, located away from rural environs, does not lack an interest and parti- cipation in things agricul- tural. A number of students have shown not only a de- sire for agricultural discus- sions, but also an active interest in agricultural pro- jects. As a result a club known as the "Agricultural Club" was organized this past year for these students. RIFLE CLUBS AMHERST was one of the very few schools that still had a rifle club last year. Because of the war, ammunition and targets were hard to obtain, but Mr. Pomeroy did his best to make the ammunition on hand last as long as possible. The Junior Rifle Club, which met on Thursdays, was one of the most popular among the younger Amherstonians. The Senior Rifle Club met on Tuesdays, but it could not compare in membership with that of the younger rifiemen.

THE TATLER went to press eleven times this year giving Amherst students complete accounts of social events, sports epics, and newsy items. A special feature was the colorful hand-designed covers drawn by the art editor, Ken Kurtz, and another feature was the original cartoons. Under the guidance of Miss Rix and Mrs. Epke the Tatler has been successful in reaching its goal of presenting items of common interest to all students in a manner character- istic of the high standards established by preceding staffs., 51 THE TOWER Jim?

Not pictured: Conrad Arnold, Harold Meese, DURING the seventh hour on Thursdays a group of girls under the leadership of Bliss Aranibar enjoyed interesting and profita- ble discussions of our neighbors south of the'border. The girls were impressed by Miss Arani- bar's accounts of her trip to Mexico, highlighted by photo- graphs and posters from that country. Mexican dances were learned, quiz programs were planned, and oral topics were given on South American and Mexican civilizations. THE stage crew is to be congratulated for its fine and coordinated Work in aiding the success of the many productions staged in the auditorium. These boys worked smoothly and swiftly in making unex- pected last minute changes and in creating desired ef- fects at any time.

Many minds found it more than easy to drift pleasantly away from lessons to thoughts and plans for Christmas Week and to gifts which would be spiritedly given and received. After school activities were terminated for the year by the inspirational and humorous halves of our traditional christmas assembly program, we left our books, notebooks, and papers in our lockers to be taken up after our return. y Tired but excited Amherstonians resumed their old routine with. a new year before them. Splendid new possessions were shown off and purposeful New Year's resolutions were aired, but a few days' time was all that was required to pick up loose ends of classes, extra-curricular activities, and sports. A really admirable basketball team attracted droves of students to inter-school games, and the swimming team packed the gallery with overheated but enthusiastic spectators. The winter landscape was nearly entirely devoid of deep snow this year, but Amherstonians paid little attention to it with their whirlwind of good times and plentiful activities. as I2 71.3 X Q f , X ,-'mu ' 0- f - jk Y ' da 96 l 6 it, ,4 - It 0, o O 5?

The orange and black won IQ of its 14 scheduled games, losing twice to a fine Hamburg five. We give much credit to our new coach, Mr. Studer, who was able to produce such a fine team in his first year. With Coach Studeris new tactics and the high fighting spirit of the players., Amherst had an excellent background for this admirable record of victories. Dick Baum paced the team, totaling 156 points, followed by Bill Mugler with 1925. Both fellows received first place berths on the Northern Erie County League all-star team with three of the other boys, Don Jacobi, Art Higgins, and Dick Naylon, meriting honorable mention. JUNICR VARSITY BASKETBALL The season was complete with many thrills and some very close scores. At VVilliamsville the boys were trailing 25 to 20 at the half, but a sec- ond hali' splurge by Baum, Clark, and lVIugler won the game for Amherst 48 to 39. Other close contests were won over Depew and Pine Hill in our first encounter of the seasonwith those schools. Although our losses were few, the most heartfelt by basketball fans was our defeat at the hands of Hamburg and our loss of the chance to gain first place in the league. Both the student body of Amherst and all those who were able to attend the games of the 1944 season realized that this was a memorable year for ixIT1llGI'St,S fighting Tigers.

They have worked hard throughout the year pepping up our football and basketball games. A bright spot this year was the addition of two snappy cheerleaders from the Junior High School. With their enthusiasm we are assured of more successful athletic seasons during the coming year. fe. ,Sue Num SeC0"d To E. B " in ik if urzbialxhage xs skew .Ln K . hi swims , . Mn 5059 B I , ws..

SWIMMING SUMMARY VVITH only four boys from last year's team as a nucleus and with no reserves to draw from, we were faced with a huge task. Twenty-six boys reported for the squad. Hampered by the loss of varsity members due to injury and eligibility the team, nevertheless, finished the dual meets in a tie for third place. In the league finals held at Kenmore, we placed live swimmers in the qualifiers. Yossler, Murphy, and Manthcy won medals in their events. In league scoring Amherst placed third. ' The individual championship meet was held at Amherst. In this meet we entered six contest- ants. Vossler placed third in the forty yard free- style, Murphy touched out Leverenz of Tona- Wanda for a win in the century breaststroke. Man- they placed third in the 220 yard freestyle. Johns- ton placed fourth in the 100 yard backstroke and Ihrig made it a third place in the century freestyle, while Dell Ewing added a. third place in the diving. Amherst placed third in the final standings. 65 THE TOWER Thomson, Ernest Lehmnn, DON ELL EW J OHNS TON BOB ING, L OyAL IQNKEL MDR PH DANCE CLUB First mwf Shirley Crooks, Marie Roberts, Marilyn Farmer, Barbara McNutt, Betty Manning, Regina Reagan, Betty Reif.

Leap Year Day-The gals come into their own. SPRIING ACCORDING to the adage, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. So it did. With sharp winds whipping the corners of the auditori- um hundreds of us thronged to see the Senior Play in the same fashion that we had gone to see the Junior Play in December. Gradually the days became warmer, encouraging students to spend more time outdoors on the athletic field and on the campus during lunch hours. The track and baseball season was under way zrfew weeks after the long, enjoyable Easter vacation, and teachers were strongly urging their students to prepare for the strain of exam week. Despite this, the beautiful spring days lured more and more stray students to Woep's and to the more remote sections of the school grounds. Open House showed our parents and friends that we did accomplish a little work after all. The Junior Prom showed us that this is one part of life at Amherst that must always live. Q , And so we reached the end of the year and the end of our story. We have talked about our teachers, our friends, our activities, and just us. But we have not said enough, and probably never could, about Amherst. Z5 X U-0 i as IQ.: if A L 25? if F 7 P J, an p- '7 t y 1 Nz 'A ,:,i' w' I , k!QXX.,! 0 J v.H. IKE .

CARL MINICH Instructor JUNIOR AVIATION T0 better prepare for the opportunities of an air-minded post-war world, and to seek a pre-induction training which offers untold possibilities, one girl and twenty-seven boys enrolled this year in Junior Aviation courses.
