Q Towns 4 I Mr. Robert Holder The Class of 1945 dedicates its yearbook to Mr. Robert Holder. He has guided not only our class through a successful senior year, but many others also. It is altogether fitting and proper that this annual be dedicated to Mr. Holder as a symbol of the many Towers he has advised for the last seven years. In honor of our service IIIPII and WOIIIPII serving in the armed forces, this impress- ive plaque hangs ill the center of the first floor corridor. It contains some 500 odd names of those who have been stud- ents at Amherst or lll6IIlb6I'S of the facul- ty. 5 Towr-:R FOREWORD When one takes a trip to a strange, new place one is in need of a guide to show him around. Uur school, Amherst Central High, is a strange, new, and thus a complicated place to many people-and in order for them to know it better we have provided two guides who know the school well-J oe Central and Jane Amherst. These people are two average seniors in school and are more than willing to show others their beautiful school and the life connected with it. So we'd like to introduce Joe and Jane.

All who know him, respect and admire him for his part of the job that has made Amherst such a line school. He is a friend of both student and teacher and acts as one of us. MR. PHILIP A. SCHWEICKHARD Principal Supervising the educational activities of some 1200 high school students and over fifty teachers is no easy task. That is the responsibility charged to our popular principal, Mr. Philip A. Schweickhard. Perhaps the secret of his success at Amherst Central is his wholehearted interest in the welfare of each individual pupil. His private office is always open for student conferences no matter how busy he may be with administrative affairs. 11 Towmn BOARD OF EDUCATION . Left to right: Mr. Walter P. Geyer, Mrs. Dell Ewing, Mr. Eduard F. Metz, President: Mr. Philip Schweickhard, Principalg Mr. Joseph F. Seitz, Mr. T. L. Masterson, Mrs. Ruth M. Brown. Not pictured: Mr. Louis B. Dorr, Treasurer: Nlr. Albert A. Vushing, flerk. The Board of Education of Amherst Central High School is composed of men and women elected to their non-profit positions because of their high sense of civic duty and their personal worth. Our school is an operating example of their desire to give us the best equipment, the finest teachers, and the strongest support possible in all aspects of our school life. It is the Board of Education that determines the policy of our school. It is the Board that buys our hooks and other study aidsg that sets aside funds for our general activities, our music organiza- tions and our sports. VVithout a Board of Education vitally interested in the welfare of both the student body and the teachers our school could not occupy its enviable position as one of the finest high schools inWestern New York. Whatever achievements of scholarship are reached, whatever honors and awards we attain in sports and other activities, and whatever individual successes are made by graduates of Amherst Fentral, the part that the Board of Education has played in the gaining of these honors should be remembered.

IN THE SERVICE Amherst has many of its past members of the faculty serving Uncle Sam. In looking hack over the last few years we revive memories in the pictures on this page and strongly hope they will become a part of Amherst again after the war. Vol. lluynioml J.

THE CLASS OF l945 Entering upon the threshold of their high school days, this year's graduating class consisted of spirit- ed and enthusiastic students. They proceeded through the past years to develop not only their education and personalities, but good citizenship and cooperation. Continuously, the recognition and success of this class has been brought to light by some organ- ized activity. Success was not gained alone, and they thank the faculty of Amherst for their guid- ance and understanding throughout the years. The graduates of '4-5 gained recognition in their freshman year when they presented the "Basket- ball Dance". This class remained in the spotlight repeatedly year after year. Their junior and senior plays were highly praised. and they are proud of their talented performers. livery class has its scholar but this one is fortunate in having many. llecause ol' the development of personalities, this class has many capable leaders. The pursuit and determination of these students has been illustrated by the excellent management of dances, plays, sports activities, and their Prom. Graduating and embarking upon a disrupted world will be a difficult problem. This class of '45 has proved itself to be composed of many fine Americans. They did not fail their school, and they shall not fail their country. The personalities and leaders developed in the halls of Amherst will help in the development of a new and better world. 21 TowER N - r- Mary Andy Bill Eth ETHEL BAKA Barb BARBARA BARKER MARY BAXLEY Art WILLIAM AYER MARSHALL ANDERSON ROBERT ALLENBACH ROBERT ALLENBACH Soccer lg Band, l, 2, 3, 4g Orches- tra l, 2, 3. 43 Operetta 1, 2g Choir 8, 43 Sec. of Band lg Manager of Fwd Band 35 Science Club lg Tower 43 Tatler 4.

S FOCTBALL THE SEASON Prospects for the A.C.H.S. football team of 1944- were debatable before the season opened. The-opinion of Coach Bergman was that the line would be of more than average size and strength, with experienced men such as Stu McAllister, Don Stiles, Andy Ander- son, Harry Vossler, Bill Grieves, Johnny Geyer and Bill Gilbert to form the nucleus of the line. A l The backfield, it seemed, would be inexperienced, with the ex- it ception of Jack Ferrick, but Mr. Bergman was blessed with the ,A ya return of quarterback Frank Streigel and two new men from other schools, Dick Dunlap, and Bob Holbrook. f V After the belated practice sessions began, a look at the first X string would have shown Johnny Ferrick firmly entrenched in X the tailback position with Frankie Streigel at the signal-calling post. Slapsie Dunlap had stolen the wing position, and Billie Gilbert was moved from his end position to the plunging spot. Stu McAllister and Bill Zabel held the guard slots, and Bob Holbrook was at center. j-LL V F int row-Bill Grieves, Johnnie Geyer, Bill Zabel, Bob Holbrook, Stuart McAllister, Marshall Anderson, George Vosselel Q 4 o Don Stiles.

Sparked by Johnny Ferrick's nifty running off-tackle, the Tigers coasted to an easy victory, 14 to 0. Next week came the traditional clash at Williamsville. Before. the quarter was five minutes old, Dunlap sprinted 45 yards for a touchdown, and .added another before half time. The last period gave the subs a chance to display their wares. Gene Cottrell and Hank McNess, in particular, gave a good account of them- selves as the Orange coasted to win 20 to 6. The first home game, with Lancaster, proved a real test. With the exception of Dick Dunlap's touchdown jaunt in the first period, Captain Bill Gilbert dominated the play completely with his sensational running and inspired defense. Gil ripped over for for the tie breaking score two minutes before the game's end, making the count Amherst, 13, Lancaster 7. The following week, at Medina, the Tigers were forced to come from behind to defeat the Red, 13 to 7, again the play of Gilbert and F errick predominated. The Depew test found the squads confident of victory, but the stubborn Tiger team scored a touchdown, got the conversion, and held on for a 7 to 6 victory. When East Aurora came to Amherst the next week, tension was high, for the winner would claim 'the conference title, although A.C.H.S. would win with a tie, as East Aurora previously had tied Depew. The game developed into a titanic struggle, both teams threat- ening, but neither scoring for four long periods, With the tie went East Aurora's bid for Conference honors. Billy Gilbert and John Geyer saved the day for the Orange with their phenominal de- fensive play when East Aurora on two occasions reached the Tiger's ten only to be held by the stubborn Tiger line. This fine team will-go down in the history of the school as its first undefeated team, comparable to the powerful squads of '38 and '41. Coach Bergman and his boys deserve the applause and gratitude of the entire student body for their fine achievement.

Every step of the long path to glory was tortuous and rough, but the undying fight which characterized the squad's play all season enabled it to stave ofl' the threats of Pine Hill and East Aurora to annex the N.E.f'. league crown for the third time in the league's history, and crush Sloan and Falconer in the sectional playoffs. This aggregation-Captain Johnny Geyer, Bill Gilbert, Don Jacobi, "Moose" Clark, Dickie Naylon, Jim Jacobi, Carlie Gordon, "Whimp" Roth, Frank Harding, Greg Moats, Will Kiplinger, Dick Derr. and "Bunn" Grieves-was tops. The undefeated team of two years ago was possibly better, but this team had the scrap that no other has shown. At the start of the season, the Tigers were thought to be about third in the league behind Hamburg and East Aurora, but as the season progressed, it developed that Pine Hill would be the team to defeat. A.f'.ll.S. suffered its first loss on the Pine Hill court, which probably did more to show Pine Hill's strength than any other game. The squad struck its second snag at East Aurora, where Bud Agnew and his cohorts turned in one of the outstanding performances of the season as they rode roughshod over the Orange to a 38 to 22 victory. But this was to be the last league loss for Amherst-then occupying the third slot in the standing. The final five games of the regular season were to be tough-Pine Hill, Lancaster, Hamburg, East Aurora, and Depew. Pine Hill was defeated in overtime, 33 to 32. Lancaster was tipped, 38 to 32. Our hoopsters trailed Hamburg for thirty minutes to overcome a 2-point deficit, and won by a 35 to 30 count. East Aurora was con- sidered the toughest of the five opponents. The fellows held a slight margin throughout the contest to emerge victorious, 28 to 23. Depew proved tough, trailing by two points in the final period, but A.f'.H.S. stepped up the pace to win by ten points. A playoff with Pine Hill for the championship was necessitated. Again the Tigers trailed most of the game, but were successful in tieing the count at the end 37 to 37. A.C.H.S. tossed in seven points in the overtime, to win, 44 to 40. Sloan put up a good first-half battle, but the superior speed of the Orange in the final half was too much, and Amherst triumphed, 4-3 to 32. The Sectional Championship playoff at TLB. with Falconer saw our lads trailing at half time only to pull ahead in the third stanza to win, 36 to 30, to become one of the immortal teams of Amherst Central sports history.

Towmn 60 SWIMMING SCORES I945 Amherst 50 North Tonawanda 15 Amherst 37 Niagara Falls 29 Amherst 21 Kenmore 45 SWIMMING SEASON The A. C. H. S. mermen were off to a good season this year but, due to the lack of fuel to heat the water in the pool, they were forced to cut the season short. The regular season consisted of three meets in which Amherst won two and lost one. First they beat North Tonawanda by the impressive scpre of 50 to 15. Then came Niagara Falls which was a little stiH'er contest. Nevertheless, the boys came out on top by the score of 37 to 29. Last came the traditionally hard meet with Kenmore and Kenmore had their usual powerhouse. The final score was Kenmore 45, A. C. H. S. 21. Amherst finished second in the league. ' The finals were held at Kenmore and unfortunately the boys had very little time to practice because of the closed pool. But, in spite of this fact they showed up very well. Co-Captain Gene Cottrell took a second in the 50-yard free style. The freshman find, Eric Siegfried, took a second in the 100-yard breast' stroke. Co-Captain George Manthey took a. third in the 220-yard free style and Howlett took a third in the 100-yard breast stroke. Co-Captain George Manthey took a third in the 220-yard free style and Howlett took a third in the 100-yard back stroke. In the relays the A. C. H. S. medley team with Howlett, Potter and Cottrell placed second, and the four man team with Manthey, Ihrig, Vosseler, and Hawks placed third. The boys that placed in this meet earned the right to compete in the individual champion- ships two nights later at North Tonawanda. In the individual championships Cottrell placed second in the 50-yard free style and Norm Ihrig placed second in the 220-yard free style. Pdtter and Manthey placed third in the 100-yard breast stroke and the 100-yard free style, respectively. Amherst loses quite a few boys this year but due to the many fine freshmen and sophomore prospects the team should do well next year. Praise should be given Coach Schonewolf and his two fine Captains, Cottrell and Manthey, for making this season a successful one. 9- f 1945 TRACK SQUAD-Left to right, First row: Frank Emblidge, Richard Dunlap, Richard Derr, Bob Hawks, George Man- they, Eugene Mandell, David Brunner, Kenneth Mintzer, John Stoll, James DiLapo, Don Bero, David Piper.

In the three dual contests, with Lockport once and Kenmore twice, the Orange fared poorly, failing to emerge on I Q - . top at all.

Our '44 team again turned the trick. The A.C.H.S. baseball teams of the past three years have played 40 games, losing four and emerging triumphant in 36, an enviable and nev- er-to-be-forgotten accomplishment in the annals of Amherst athletics. Held down last spring by the weather and wartime transportational difficulties, only eleven games were scheduled, Parker High being the only team to trip the Tiger batsmen. High-lights of the season were "Moose" Clark's perfect no-hit triumph against Lancaster in which he notched 18 strikeouts during the seven inning contest, and the final game at Pine Hill, when the Tigers took their N.E.C. Crown with a 2 to 0 win.

The pitching will be strong with Moose Clark and Johnny Ferrick to bear the brunt of the hill works. Bill Gilbert, Dick Naylon, and Frank Harding probably will patrol the left side of the infield, with only first base to replace. The out- field, with Don Jacobi, aided by one of the pitchers, will be fast and hard-hitting, having only the backstop post to be satisfactorily filled. The '45 schedule will consist of ll games, with Pine Hill, Akron, Williams- ville, Parker and North Tonawanda, and one play-off encounter. This is a banner year in Amherst athletic history. Let's hope that the base- ball team adheres to the glorious precedent established by the football and basketball squads. BASEBALL SCHEDULE 1945 Apr. Q7-N.

GIRLS' SPORTS COUNCIL GIRLS' SPORTS It is the purpose of the Girls' Sports Council to take charge of making the necessary ar- rangements for the girls' productions. The council is composed of two representatives from each of the senior high school girls' homerooms, and it is their duty to represent the girls not only in planning these activi- ties but also in keeping a record of the points each girl accumulates every year toward her sports letter. The president of the council this year was Gloria Hanour, the vice president was Joan Mullen, and Nancy Marchand and Irene Becker held offices as secretary and treasur- er, respectively. The council is advised by Mrs. Husband. Towma 66 1,17 The program of girls' sports was upset because sch started so much later this year.

There were eighty people at the first call for cheerleading tryouts but this large turn-out was narrowed down to fifteen during Basketball Season. Jack McKenna and Harold Brundige were the Junior High Cheer- leaders during Football Season.

THE MUSICAL CRGANIZATICNS JUNIOR BAND The musical organizations here at Amherst have always played an important part in the activities of the school. They take part in the assembly programs of our school and also contribute to outside activities. The members of these organizations work hard for the success of their groups. They arrive before school for rehearsals and remain alter school is dismissed to practice again. The Band, Orchestra, A Cappella Choir, Junior Choir, Ensembles and soloists who take part in the concert which dedicated the school organ to the memory of Paul and Edryce King, all worked earnestly to be able to give a concert which would be fitting to the occasion. The lland has played for the Junior and Senior plays. Although the Urchestra has not been as active this year as in previous years, an increase in its activity is expected next year. The A Cappella Choir has not been as active as we would have liked it to be. The choir has sung several times in assembly, and at Christmas time carried along the tradition of caroling through the halls. The String Ensemble has been quite active this year, as shown by the fact that it has played several times at the Amherst Community Church, and the two grade schools in Snyder and Eggerts- ville. These six people have done a line job of making themselves more well-known among the stu- dent body, bliss Mr-Cullor and Mr. Krestic have done a fine job in building up the musical organizations. They have worked harder and worried more than the members themselves. Thev certainly deserve a vote of thanks for the work they have done in music for Amherst Central High. TowER 78 This year the TATLER earned world-wide fa'ne. It was sent to servicemen on all fronts and the appre- ciative letters received prove that it has given enjoy- ment to many people far from Amherst.

JUNIOR AVIATION Make way for a course that's taken its students off their feet and into the air! This year the Junior Aviation Class has featured actual flight training, which added untold thrills to the practical ground work. The background in meteorology, aerodynamics, air navigation, aircraft structures and engines greatly increased the students' knowl- edge of the coming "air world." Many of the students have definite plans to continue their aviation work in college or jobs. Others will be defending our country in the 1ir.
