The silver-smudged rails that criss-cross our nation and
the mighty majesty of the snorting black giants that
weigh heavily upon those thin ribbons of steel suggested
the theme of the 1947 Tower: the American railroad
system, greatest in the world.
Trains and schools are strikingly similar. Each must
stick to schedules and must keep "on the track" or
neither will get anywhere. Both must be run by com-
petent "engineers" or disaster may result.
Schools, too, are like railroad stations where people
are always arriving and departing, all intent on getting
somewhere as quickly as possible. The final destination
of students at Amherst Central is graduation but there
are many stops before our "train" ends its trip. Some
students take it easy and travel club car, some take a
sleeper through many of their class "stops," and others
ride the day coaches to get long glimpses of the alluring
"scenery," Once in a while there is a "wreck" and fail-
ing students are left at a siding to recover.
4 'I' 0 NV ,
Faculty "engineers" keep the train running smoothly,
supervisory personnel oil the wheels to keep the train
rolling at top speed with safety, and the "president" four
principalj makes regular inspections to insure good
operation of the "railroad"
Mr. PVilliam Va11Sree11lrzn'gb
The Class of 1947 dedieates its yearbook to Mr. NVilliam Van Steenburgh,
better known to us as "Pop." To students and faculty alike he has been a
good friend. We admire his consistent cheerfulness and his daily deeds
of kindness. For many years "Pop" has faithfully devoted his services as
groundskeeper to Amherst. "Pop" has become a symbol of what we like
to think of as the "Spirit of Amherst."

Work on the Tower was characterized
by a spirit of activity in which many
seniors busied themselves with a myriad
of tasks ranging from selling subscriptions
in homerooms to buying decorations for
the Tower Bazaar. The editorial staff pre-
pared write-ups of activities and kept a
running record of school activities. Sell-
ing advertisements and taking charge of
financing the yearbook kept the business
staff busy. A bright touch was added by
the drawings and photos of the art and
guerite Sprague. Third Rofwz Ruth Kling, Ruth Parnell,

One of the most important jobs of a train-
master is to keep the trains running on
schedule. Our assistant principal takes
charge of keeping us on our schedules.
Mr. Scheller's sincere and just personality
makes him a friend to all.

BOARD GF EDUCATION
The group of unselfish and capable men and women who comprise the Board of
Education merits the thanks and respect of both the student body and the entire
community. On their shoulders rests the responsibility of providing teaching per-
sonnel, and equipment for education, sports, and general activities. Much credit is
due to them for providing facilities which make Amherst Central High School one
of the finest and best managed schools in New York State.
Mrs. Kacsclau, Mrs. lmogenc Amo, Miss jane Sheelcr
Miss Marilyn Zenner, Miss Barbara Foote, Miss Viola YVannenwc
Sooner or later we all come in contact with the pleasant
efhciency of our office staff. They give everyone prompt,
cheerful attention. Handling the school finances, taking
care of the bookroom, and answering the secretarial needs
of the school are among their countless duties.
VVe appreciate the understanding and
patience of our capable school nurse. Mrs.
Coyer attends to our ills and keeps the

Almost a hundred candidates turned out for the
first football practice this year. Out of these hope-
fuls, of all shapes and sizes, Coach Bergman carved
a team which went down as the second unde-
feated team of Amherst Central history.
The first two backfields which alternated reg-
ularly, had Don Bero, Fd Berger, Frank Sykes,
and jack Thiel, half-backs, Rav lfVeser and Bill
Brunner, full-backs, and "Dinip" XNagner and
Don Miller as "Held generals." Bob Conschafter,
"Ants" Cerrone, Dick Flliott, and Trevor jones
layed at quard. Fld Hoeflich and Dave Brunner
eld down the tackle slots, and johnny Krochmal
and Danny Strong were our ent'-L. Chuck Shanklin
and Edward Kercher traded' off at the center slot.
The pre-season election for captain produced
a three-way tie, with Berger and Brunner each
captain for two games, and Bero taking over for
the other three.
Our first game was played on about the hottest
day of the year. After trailing Depew iz-o at the
half, the Tigers came back to score in the third
quarter with Weser carrying through center of
the line. Berger brought home another six points
of? tackle in the fourth quarter to tie it up. Then
Miller's extra point was good to win the ball game.
The highlight of the Medina game was Berger's
37-yilfd run which started the second half off

with a bang. Dimp sent Bero off tackle in the third quarter for the
only score, and Miller again converted to make the final score 7-o.
Silver Creek saw the varsity for only about two quarters, when the
second and third strings took over. We chalked up two points as
Cerrone and Conschafter smeared a Silver Creek back in his own end
zone. Berger drove through the opponents for 24 yards, to pick up
six more points. in the same period. Bero and Weser scored again in
the second and third periods, when the first string was taken out.
johnny Basil caught a pass from Miller in the end zone to make at 28-o
Silver Creek made their only touchdown when they caught a third
string fumble on Amherst's 2 5-yard line.
A pass from Miller to Krochmal Put A.C.H.S. in the lead 6-o going
into the second half of the traditional Amherst-Williamsville game.
Billsville came back in the second half to make it 7-6. Then the Tigers
began to roll, with Berger scoring at the end of an 85-yard drive to
win the game 12-7.
The scoreless tie with East Aurora proved to be a battle of the lines,
although in the first half, Amherst wasn't even in the game. Dan Strong
proved his worth with recovered fumbles and timely tackles.
We met Hamburg on a very wet field and slid to a 6-6 tie. The lone
tally came with Miller on the other end of a pass from Frank Sykes in
the first half. Hamburg came back to tie it up in the second half, and
but for a few penalties might have scored.

For the first time 'in nearly five years, Amherst was
represented in the Northern Erie County Soccer
League. This long interval sums up the problem
that faced Coach Wratten at the beginning of the
season. About 40 boys reported for practice at the
beginning of the year. This number was cut down
to a squad of about zo. Most of the fellows had
had little or no experience before this year.
However, as the season progressed, things began
to look brighter. A line-up composed of the cap-
tain, Don Schneegold, Root, Baker, Butzer, Allan,
Freeman, Kennedy, Runckel, Carr and Santo-
mauro took the field against a strong North Collins
eleven. johnnie Herman was tending goal for
Amherst. The boys, mainly because of greenness,
met defeat, 5 to 1. The lone Amherst tally was
garnered by Gene Carr. The next foe was Wood-
lawn, and again our forces came out on the short
end of the score, this time 2 to o. The following
game was with Holland and the fellows came to
life to score a 2 to 1 victory. Gordie Runckel and
Curtis Cram, Franz Allina, Jack Kelly, David Dean. Third
Row: Vernon Henry, scorekeeper, Stanley Butzer, Bill
Power, Dick Guelich, Mr. VVratten, coach, john Herman,
john Power, Lou NVollenberg, Al Charron.
Bill Allan made the goals for Amherst. Then the
Tigers were humbled by Orchard Park in a tough
game, 2 to 1. Along came North Collins again and
with the same result: o for us and 4 for them. Then
the team started a two-game winning streak, dis-
posing of Angola and Woodlawn: 2 to 1 and 1 to o,
respectively. Captain Schneegold, Runckel and
Carr were the scorers for Amherst. The team hit a
snag at Holland and was beaten 5 to 1. This game
was played on aslippery field and many bad breaks
led to our downfall. Only Tony Santomauro
scored for Amherst. The last two games found the
team at its strongest, and Orchard Park and
Angola were subdued with comparative ease. The
scores were 2 to 1 and 2 to o with Gordie Runckel
getting two goals and Santomauro and Carr
netting one apiece.
This left us with a record of five wins against
five defeats, and fifth place in the league. It is
hoped that next year will find us with a large
turnout of candidates for this fine sport.

This year Amherst's cross country team entered
its first year of interscholastic conipetion. Coach
Munson had 47 boys out to start the season and
from this group came the team that went unde-
feated through six meets to win the Western New
York High School championship.
Before the first meet with East Aurora on Sep-
tember z7th, Kenneth Plumb was chosen captain
and went on that day to lead his team to victory.
He set new course records at Lancaster, Fredonia,
and here on the Amherst Central z M -mile course.
On October z6th Mr. Munson took a carefully
chosen team to Syracuse for a meet that brought
together over zoo boys from zo of the best teams
in the state. Ken Plumb surprised the experts by
bringing home the gold third place trophy. Others
who placed that day were Bob Arth, Charles
Ganter, Leon Weitz, Ted Wetherbee, Charles
Oddo and Larry Selbert, who ran in spite of a
badly pulled muscle.
The freshmen championship was also held in
October with the individual winner, Larry Sel-
bert, running the two-mile course in 11:26. This
frosh team ran several meets, most outstanding of
which was at Fredonia, where Larry Selbert and
others nosed out the home frosh by a single point.
The friendly, although highly competitive,
spirit of the whole team enabled them to win all
their meets. These wins in dual home and home
meets against East Aurora, Lancaster and Fredonia,
gave the boys that necessary experience to win the
sectional championship on November 9th by a
margin of zo points. Our scoring team included
Plumb, who won the first place medal, Selbert,
second, Arth, eighth, Ganter, ninth, and Laverne
Fisher, who was tenth in a field of 6o runners.
After Amherst's scholastic season finished, many
of our team ran in the St. Francis races. The out-
standing performances there were Larry Selbert's
win over 71 other starters in the 3M-mile race,
and the places won bv Bill Derrick, Dick Broad-
bent, Gerrv Stevens, 'and Bill Still.
Listed below are the year's results with Amherst

Although this wasn't one of the more successful seasons in our history, it was
packed with many thrills. The Tigers outscored their opponents by 533 to 483
to make some compensation for a record of 8 wins and 6 defeats.
The first two games with Last Aurora and Lancaster were won easily 36-18
and 38-25 respectively. XYe were handed our first defeat by Akron in a very close
game 36-35. Don XVagner and lid Berger scored I4 and I5 points, respectively,
to supply the needed spark to beat XYilliamsville on the loser's court. NVith a
record of 3 victories for 4 games, our Tigers lost 3 straight. The first to Pine Hall
was a real triller. After leading by one point at the half, the A.C.H.S. five trailed
by z points at the close of the third and could not catch up. The final score was
30-28. ln our loss to llepew we also led at the half only to relinquish this lead in
the last quarter to lose 35-32. Our fourth defeat was at the hands of Hamburg on
their court 43-36.
The Tigers again tasted victory on their second meeting with Fast Aurora.
liveryoiie o1i the squad scored in this game, and we won by a score of 5o-zz.
john Kroehmal shattered our single game, individually scoring a record of 16
points to defeat Lancaster 43-38. "johnny', also tossed in a perfect 8 for 8 in
fo11l shots. Captain Spencer .XlaclDonald and john Krochmal again shared 37
points in a 57-50 defeat of Akron on the loser's court. Amherst bowed on the Pine
Hill court 3o-zo then recovered quickly to conquer "l3illsville" for the second
time in the season 4:-36. johnny was again high-scorer with ll points. On the
following lfriday night, the team traveled to Depew RIIHT came out on the short
end: 5l-37. A brilliant performance and lg points by Dick Tolsma brought .filli-
herst back into the winning column 47-3o over Hamburg for the last game.

second with Ili.
The junior Varsity was sparked to a record of IO victories against 4 defeats

Our swimming team completed a moderately suc-
cessful season this vear with a record of four vic-
tories against six defeats. The season opened with
the squad dropping a decision to a powerful
Kenmore team. The final score showed 46 for
Kenmore, zo for Amherst. In the next two meets
the Tigers hit their stride, drubbing North Tona-
wanda and Lockport, 38-28, and 43-23, respec-
tively. Then the boys ran into a Hock of injuries
to key members of the squad and lost the next
four meets. Close decisions were suffered to Ni-
agara Falls and Tonawanda, and the boys were
really walloped by North Tonawanda and Ken-
more. Fighting back gamely, the Tigers took the
measure of Lockport, before losing to Tonawanda
again in the second last meet of the campaign. The

High point scorers for the team were Co-Capt.
Kinkel and McCain tied with 60 points apiece.
Next Came Siegfried, Landsheft and, Brundage
with 46, 39, and 37, respectively. An early season
injury to C0-Capt. Wilson, prevented him from
living up to expectations.
The reserves had a fairly successful season with
a record of five wins and five losses. High scoring
members for this squad were Don jones and Ken
Prospects for next year are definitely bright
since all the boys but four will be back hoping to
justify Coach Schonewolf's faith in them.

For the fifth year in succession, the Amherst baseball team proved themselves to
be the peer of their division in the Northern Erie County League. Piling up a fine
record of thirteen wins and only three losses, the boys ran off with the pennant only
to lose a wild and wooly playoff game to an excellent Depew team.
Power hitting proved the team's greatest asset during the gruelling season. The
three top hitters, among the regulars, were Don Jacobi, Dan Strong, and Ed
Berger, with respective averages of 482, 439 and 386. Supplementing the hitters
was some fine pitching, particularly by Don Miller who won five games and lost
none. Miller also batted 37 5.

I946 TRACK SEASON
With only a few major letter winners and squad members returning from last
year's squad, Coach Bergman began training his team for one of the toughest
schedules in Amherst's track history.
On May z, the team played host to a strong North Tonawanda team and were
handed their first set-back of the season. Despite their bad start the boys ventured
to East Aurora and, by taking nine out of twelve firsts, won 65-37. The most
impressive victory of the season came in their triangular meet against Pine Hill
and Lancaster. The boys took almost half the first places and won easily, 53 to 38
for Pine Hill and 27 for Lancaster. The next meet was the International Confer-
ence. The winner would be champion of the surrounding schools. Eight schools
took part, and Amherst finished second behind Hamburg. During the meet two
long-established school records in the half-mile and shot put were broken by
Dave Brunner and Edward Hoeflich. Dave lowered the previous time of 2:11 to
z:o9, while Ed raised the shot mark to 36'5".
Amherst was then handed two straight defeats at the hands of Kenmore and
Hamburg, but came back the next week to defeat Lancaster 61 to 43. The last
meet of the season was the sectional meet, which was held at Kenmore. All the
schools took part, and Amherst finished eighth in the final standings. Dave
Brunner, jack Wilson and Edward Hoefiich took the top honors in the meet for
Amherst. Dave, who had not been beaten in the half-mile all year, took second
place behind Winston of Hamburg. jack, a new member of our squad, was just
eginning to hit his stride and took a fourth in the zzo. Ed, who had set a previous
shot put record in the conference meet, raised his record to 37 lin".
The high point scorers this year were: Gene Fechter, with 53, Dave Brunner,
with 38, and Larry Wright, with 33.
During the season the team sold waste paper and collected enough money to
purchase a plaque, on which names of all track record holders will be inscribed.
The fact that many letter men are returning and that more and more boys are
trying out for the team leads us to believe that Amherst's 1947 track team will be
able to surpass the fine records of previous teams.

Late in March, Mr. Bergman's track squad assembled for what looked like a very
successful season. This squad, composed mostly of last year's track and cross-
country teams, contained some of the best raw material yet to Put on Amherst
jerseys. Mr. Bergman coached field events, while Mr. Munson supervised runners.
Several of the boys were record holders. Seven or eight meets were planned
with the surrounding schools. The two high oints of the year were the confer-
ence meet at Amherst and the sectionals at lfenmore.

SCENES FROM THE PLAY
The year 1946-47 was a very active one for the
Music Department. The Senior Orchestra once
again was under the direction of Mr. VVincenc.
They played for a teachers' convention, a P.T.A.
meeting, and for many assemblies. They went to
School No. 18 to play for the students there.
Shortly afterward, they were invited to entertain
at Akron High School, where they gave two
concerts and received quite an ovation.
Most of our home football games Qand the away
Williamsville gamej were livened at the halves by
Mr. Krestic and the Senior Band. They played.
marched, and formed letters on the field. The band
had the honor of being asked to march and play at
Civic Stadium for two Bison football games. They
also played for many assemblies. The band played
one concert in assembly and another one on
February 27 to raise money for more uniforms.
They went with the orchestra to play at East
Aurora High School on January 15.
Thanks to Norma Davis, a transfer student from
Pittsburgh, we have a new organization in the
music department: the Drum Majorettes. Norma
and the girls have appeared at nearly every home
football game and concert, twirling the batons.
On November 21, a concert was given by the
Senior Band, Senior Orchestra, junior High Choir,
Senior Choir, and soloists. A similar concert was
given in the spring.
This year Mr. Krestic and his Basketball Band
again played at many home basketball games.
Three music students journeyed to Jamestown
to play in the sectional all-state orchestra. Several
more went to a similar orchestra in Lockport. Six
students traveled to Rochester to play in the All-
State Orchestra. This orchestra is made up of
music students from high schools all over the
state who get together for a few days to rehearse as
one orchestra and then give a concert.
The Sectional State Music Festival in May was
held this year at A.C.H.S. Musical organizations,
including our own, from high schools all over
Western New York, participated in the contest.
Soloists performed as well as large groups. They
received a rating on their work by the judges.
The Mixed Choir was directed by Mr.Wincenc.
This was the first mixed choir we have had in
many years. The junior High Choir, under the
direction of Miss Margaret McCullor, and the
Mixed Choir sang during our Thanksgiving pro-
gram. The spring concert and many assemblies
were highlighted by the latter organization. Many
boys and girls are waiting in eager anticipation so
they can join this large and enthusiastic group
The string orchestra and the string quartet made
many local appearances.

Under the leadership of its president, jack Wilson, the Student Council achieved
a school service record of which we may all be proud. Last fall they put the Com-
munity Chest Drive beyond our goal. Through the sale of ice cream at home basket-
ball games, they raised money to furnish buses for the games played away. The
members collected funds for the band's campaign for new uniforms. They also had
a trophy case constructed.
The Student Council, which consists of two members from each homeroom,
maintains a democratic form of student government at Amherst Central.

The National Honor Societv is com-
posed of students who represent ac-
tive leadership, service to the school,
high moral character, plus a high
scholastic standing. Members of the
Amherst Chapter, with Miss Martha
Stall as adviser, again maintained the
supply room, awarded honor roll
plaques to homerooms, and pre-
sented a 3100 scholarship to the stu-
dent with the highest scholastic
standing in the senior class.
These energetic and resourceful
boys have performed countless ser-
vices for our school. Since Dave
Zierk is graduating this year, we
wish to commend him for the fine
work he has done during his two
years as manager of the stage crew.
Under Dave's able leadership, new
regulations were put into effect and
the stage crew was more higly or-
ganized. Our movie program was
expanded. In addition, money was
raised for the purchase of new

The Rifle team met and defeated Kenmore on our range in an
informal match on january 15. This was a four-position
match, new to most members of both teams, since most of
the firing has been done in the prone position.
Of a total possible team score of iooo, Amherst scored 795
to KCHIIIKDFCIS 756. Captain jim Brunn was high man with
183, Charles Bishop 158, Paul Pancoe 155, Curt Rogers 151,
and jim Heinilce 147. Bill Nye, Tony Primas, and Al Primas
led the Kenmore team with 166, l60 and l6O respectively.
During February and March, the club fired NRA Gallery
League Competition. The NRA postal matches were com-
pleted in March, and the William Randolph Hearst Trophy
Match was fired next.
In April, we were hosts for the NRA Sectional shoulder-to-
shoulder matches for VVestern New York, at which time we
had an opportunity to fire against many teams 1n the area from
Rochester to Cleveland, Ohio. National finals were in May.
Five of our members were awarded bronze War Depart-
ment medals recently for high scores fired in the calendar
year 1946. This course of fire is really difficult, it consists of
I0 shots in each position, a total possible score of 4oo. To
qualify for Expert one must shoot 360 or higher, and for
Sharpshooter, 320 or higher. The winners, their scores and
class were as follows: Kneel- Off- Total

This year, junior Aviation gave a shorter, but a broader picture of w, if
aircraft structures and engines. Students were given the chance to 'K K
repair actual damage that might occur during operation, in the same as ' 3
positions as regular mechanics. Periods were divided between the - --
aviation shop, complete with aircraft and necessary repair tools, and
class. By being able to work directly on broken parts, the students gg?
received basic knowledge. 0
Although in existence seventeen years, the Tatler has emerged, within the last two
years, as a printed publication. Emphasis was placed on student appeal and timeliness
of news. It was through this monthly news medium that the students of A.C.H.S.
acquired their knowledge of future assemblies, dances, athletic events, and other
happenings as well as the knowledge of the activities of various groups at Amherst.
Last year, the Tatler was accepted into the membership in the International Quill
and Scroll Society. At the beginning of this year only two of the staff, Editor-in-
Chief Diane Willax and Make-up Editor Pat Goodman, were members of the society.
Now, the Tatler boasts a great many more members of this journalistic honor society.
Under the leadership of Diane VVillax and the guidance of Miss Rix and Mr.
Martin, the Tatler went to press nine times.
A new executive position was created in this year's staff-that of managing editor,
ably filled by Bob Nelson.

BOYS' H I-Y
The Boys"Hi-Y provided an oppor-
tunity for boys to participate in
wholesome, creative recreational ac-
tivities, to learn the true meaning

The suggestions they made to improve the library were very helpful.

library practice. The group was first advised by Mrs. Lake. Later it was
under the direction of Mrs. Hannel, who was aided by Miss Carol
Mueller, a new library assistant.
The Newspaper Club provides reg-
ular opportunity for practice in

organization. Its first project was a drive
to collect material to send to a school in
France. The members had a French din-
ner at Victor Hugo's. They also gave a
very successful dance complete with the
atmosphere of a French cafe. The officers
of the club are: Mary Lou Cohn, presi-
dent, Robert Boyd, vice-president, Grace

Boys and girls who are keenly interested
in the history of their community and
state had an opportunity to enrich their
background through the activities of this
club. They had speakers and slides at
many of their meetings. The ultimate
goal of many of the members was to write
an article to be published in their maga-
zine, "The Yorker."

VVith the introduction of Driver Training, A.C.H.S. became a
pioneer in this part of the state. The first class was organized in
january, 1947. Those who participated received M Regents credit.
Enrollment was limited to 6o persons in order that each might
receive the maximum individual instruction. At the conclusion of
the course, students reached a degree of proficiency higher than
that required to pass a New York State driving examination.
Students not only received actual driver training in a dual-
control car, but met twice a week to discuss various driving prob-
lems. In discussing these problems, the instructors, Mr. Munson
and Mr. Patelunas, aimed to develop, in the student, the proper
social attitude necessary for safe driving.
Fach day, students met in Room 323 and were assigned either
discussion problems or behind-the-wheel training.
