Ju FOREWORD 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" l Mr. PVilliam Va11Sree11lrzn'gb DEDICATION 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 photography staffs. guerite Sprague.

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 First Row: lVilliam Brunner, james Heinike, Charles Shanklin, Anthony Cerrone, lfdward Hoeflich, David Brunner, Donald Bero, lfdxvard Berger, john Krochmal, Ray NVeser, Frank Sykes, Donald XVagner.

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.

Second Row: Rudy Spork, Carl Gertis, Kent Ziegler, Dave Edwards, SEASON 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. SUMMARY 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.

WSW oooh- Coach VV1'attCn .IL BASKETBALL SEASON 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. john Krochmal was high for the season with zoq points and Spencer was second with Ili. The junior Varsity was sparked to a record of IO victories against 4 defeats hy Dick lfowlcr, with a season total of 154 points. JUNIOR VARSITY .

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.

SUMMARY fellows went all-out for the last meet and edged out Niagara Falls, 38-18. 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 Woods. 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.

I946 BASEBALL SEASGN 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.

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.

I947 OUTLOOK 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. TOWER M 5h.""'l""-v-Q.

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 next year. The string orchestra and the string quartet made many local appearances. First Row: VViIIia1n Ritz, Lois Murray, Betty Smith, Harriet Nichols, Dona Koch, Sue Boulden, Donald Feldman, Olive Harbinson.

STUDENT COUNCIL 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.

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. SWITCH OPERATORS 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 equlpment. 68 'l'owER First Row: Adele Thomas, Shirley Fisher, Marion Marshall, David Zierk, Presidentg Renee Dathe, Hanna Machlup, Georgia Goetzmann.

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.

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 TATLER 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. l'1rrt Row: Barbara Smith, Anna Hartel, Cloe Mau, Grace Claxton, Charles Rodgers, Arlene Wray, Bob Nelson, Diane WVillax, Kenneth Helfrich, Pat Goodman, Carol Rogers, Nonnie Seymour, Robert Boyd, Rose Marie Marinese, Shirley Geschwender, Mary Bilgcr, julie Hirschman.

DRIVER TRAINING 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. tr f I r as I A ' . lg r ' '.
