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
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-
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.

Yes, these are our teachers. Although we have been with them but a few years they have enriched
our lives and trained us well for the tasks that lie ahead. Underneath the formalities of rilles and
regulations we have found kind and understanding men and women eager to help us to take our
place in the world.

Enough can not be said in praise of our
assistant principal. 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
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.
BOARD OF EDUCATION .

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.

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.

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.
V F int row-Bill Grieves, Johnnie Geyer, Bill Zabel, Bob Holbrook, Stuart McAllister, Marshall Anderson, George Vosselel

The first game was at Hamburg, and the Purple was too con-
fident. 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
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.

BASKETBALL I944- I 945
The orange-clad A.C.H.S. hoopsters rose to unprecedented heights
this past season by becoming the first in the history of the school to
emerge victorious from the sectional playoffs.
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
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.

SWIMMING SCORES I945
Amherst 50 North Tonawanda 15
Amherst 37 Niagara Falls 29
Amherst 21 Kenmore 45
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.

The '44 track team finished a moderately successful season with 4 .
fourth place in the sectional meet at Kenmore, showing that it be- '
longed in the upper half of the sectional group. i

'l'hree triangular meets were held, with the Tigers finishing second
twice and third once. In the three dual contests, with Lockport once
and Kenmore twice, the Orange fared poorly, failing to emerge on I Q - .
top at all. They put up a fine battle against larger Lockport before V
bowing 51 to 47. In the two multiple meets, A.C.H.S. placed fourth,

1944 BASEBALL SEASON
Thrice crowned champions! 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.

Prospects for this spring are good. 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
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

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
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
The program of girls' sports was upset because sch
started so much later this year. Soccer and hocl-
continued about a month before the girls were fort
inside because of ol' man winter., Friday night bask
ball was discontinued entirely this year in order

The main attraction during the year, howev
was the VVater Follies. This colorful spectacle v
accomplished with the enthusiasm of practically eve
girl in the school. Some worked on the gay costum

ganizes its government by
electing two delegates from
each homeroom to govern
the students. As usual,
high goals were reached in
in the Red Cross drive, the
March of Dimes, and Rus-

McAllister held office as
president and Pat McKen-

five senior cheerleaders are grad-

at the first call for cheerleading

THE MUSICAL CRGANIZATICNS
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
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
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-
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.
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. The TATLER
went to press eight times and each issue was more
widely read than the last. Both the editorial staff and
the busmess staff have made the TATLER an import-
ant part of life at Amherst.

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. Best of luck and good flying!
