We encountered many pitfalls and traps in our trek through the maze of fears and the undergrowth of confusion, and often through the help of our Jungle King and our Tribal Leaders We found the trails that led to the open plains in full View of success. We found that everyone is a trailbreaker who overcomes the almost in- surmountable obstacles and goes on with new courage and confidence to conquer the un- known. Each Amherst jungle dweller blazes his own trail. The trembling seventh grader enters with faltering steps. The wide-eyed freshman gets his first glimpse of the life ahead. The con- fident sophomore has hurdled a few obstacles along the trail. The complacent junior moves on with the assurance gained through past victories. The thoughtful, determined senior has emerged from the darkness of the jungle and is now standing on the edge of the bright clear- ing, confidently gazing into the future. However, his respite is but temporary, for there are many more jungles in the life ahead. ' Through patient instruction our teachers prepare us for the future. We are disciplined by being sent to detention. The gym, the swimming pool, and the special exercise rooms keep us physically fit. hlathematics, language, science, business, social studies, shop work, art, and music all round out our mental training. Let us learn from the reading of the recorded past one of the lessons of life in the jungle, the knowledge and skill gained in trampling the green undergrowth of school life will prove helpful in making progress through the tough tangle of the older and mightier obstacles that lie ahead in this confused world of today.

The Diamond Warriors u By defeating Southwestern Central High School at Offermann Stadium on June 14, 1948, the A.C.H.S. Baseball team climaxed the most noteworthy season in the long athletic history of our school. The 1948 TIGERS marched to 20 consecutive victories without a defeat, took their second successive Section VI Class A Championship, and captured the NECL Crown for the sixth time in the last seven years. Besides emerging victorious in ten NECL League tussels, Amherst shut out Kenmore three times and defeated Tonawanda once in non-league tilts, proving that Amherst could have easily captured the VGL Crown if we had been in the same league since Tonawanda and Kenmore were the leading contendors in the Class AA Niagara Frontier League. Coach Hettler's squad had four close calls. Local Williamsville almost tripped the TIGERS twice, but ACHS took the two engagements by scores of 2 to 0 and 9 to 8. In the first tussel, Don Miller pitched the only complete no-hit, no-run game of the year. The second Billsville encounter was the real "thriller" of the season, as ACHS was forced to score five times in the bottom of the 7th inning in order to keep her undefeated record intact. The other close games were with Sloan and Southwestern in the playoffs. The '48 Championship Squad was extraordinary in the fact that it was superb in all positions. Don Miller and Doug Reed carried the majority of the pitching load, since together they accounted for 17 victories, while Don Phillips clinched the remaining three. In winning eight tussels, Reed established a new school strike-out record of 111. Our air-tight infield was composed of Don Drumm Ccatcherb, Captain Ed Berger Clst basej, Al Ott C2nd basel, Dan Strong Cshort stopj, and John Krochmal 13rd basej. Dick Bealer, Don Miller, Don Phillips, and Art Lettie alternated in the outfield. Left Fielder, Dick Bealer, had the best individual season as he led the whole squad in batting and fielding with averages of .565 and 1.000 respectively. Since the entire first eleven graduated last June, the prospects for the future do not look too bright. How- ever, with the return of classmen Don Berger, Al Ciminelli, LeRoy Frederick, Dick Bauer, and John Shearer, and with the moving up of top players on the successful J. V. squad, Coach Wratten should not have too much to Worry about. We sincerely hope that they will make it Three Section VI Championships in a row for Amherst Central High School.

Natives of the Cinder Trail Amherst's track squad proved to be the champs when they walked off with an un-defeated, un-tied 1948 season. This highly successful season opened in Hamburg with A.C.H.S. on top-62 to 42. At the next two meets with East Aurora and Lan- caster our Amherstonians trounced the opposition 74 to 29 and 86 to 18, respectively. Then came the Western New York Conference meet in which we emerged undisputed victors with 51 points against 23 for the nearest team. The boys really hit their stride with Fredonia when they won 60 to 44. It was in this meet that Eric Siegfried skipped over the hurdles to lower the school record to 24.5 seconds. Olean was next on the list, and the Amherst steamroller flattened the "Oilers" 57 to 41. Then came the fitting end to this season of all seasons at the New York State Section VI Championship Meet. The opposition stood wide-eyed as the "Tigers" swept across track and Held accumulating 50 points, to their nearest competitor's 15. During this meet Bill Der- rick lowered the mark to 53.6 seconds in the 440 yard dashg Charles Oddo jumped over the former record of 208 8" in the Broad Jumpg Dick Blauvelt High jumped 5' 9" to a new recordg Ken Plumb lowered his record for the mile to 4:48.05 and the Relay Team, composed of Kingman, Siegfried, and Wagner, established 1:37.6 as the new record. Thus, the "48" season closed, leaving Dick Blauvelt on top of the scoring list with 49M points and Bob Phillips runner-up with 44 points. J. V.

Siclelighis From A Great Year of Sports Last year our school witnessed one of the greatest years in its athletic history. At the end of the spring season all the teams were honored in an assembly program, Where they received a total of nine trophies, the greatest number to be won in any one year. Don Miller, captain of the football team, presented Mr. Schweickhard with the trophy from the Exchange Club of Amherst. The Syracuse Basketball Cup was presented by Don Phillips along with the Western New York Intermediate Championship Trophy by captain John Krockmal. Bill Derrick, captain of the track team presented their championship trophy and Eric Siegfried, representing the 880-relay team, presented the trophy they won for setting a record. Individual track trophies were Won by Kenneth Plumb, Eric Siegfried, and Ray Weser. Ed Berger, captain of the victorious baseball team, presented the Western New York Intermediate Championship Trophy while Don Drumm presented the Duke University Cup, another baseball award. The golf team, represented by Charles Friedman, presented their trophy. 40 Townn FIRST ROWjLawrence Pope, Bruce Quinby, Dick Ferrick, Bob Stoddard, Martin Geary, Jerry Thuman, Everett Boyce, Robert Monroe, Dick Cook Martin Meidel Elmer Mans eaker SE J B k D G t Ch l C t B bM ll F kAl d K th , , p .

Due to the fact that there are over 20 teams in the conference, a champion has never been declared. Amherst, while winning six of the seven games played, compiled a total of 84 points, while its opponents scored 33. Coach Milt Bergman's teams, over a period of five years, have won 31 of their 35 games and have scored 485 points to 203 for the opponents. Of the thirty-six players on the squad, eighteen were considered first-string men. Three were post- graduates, eight will graduate this June, and the rest will be back next year. During the major part of the season, Coach Bergman placed Don Drumm as Fullback, Don Phillips, Don Berger, Norb Walsh and George Haberfield as Half- backsg and Herb Vincent as Quarterback. Phillips was the Captain and top scorer with 35 points. Amherst gained 1235 yards on the ground while its opponents gained 809. By these figures you can see that the tigers had a strong forward Wall. Bob Hotte and John McGee shared the chores at Left End, Al Cimmin- elli played a splendid game at Left Tackle, John Liegel was the Left Guard while Bob "Sledge" Nichols was the center. Right Guard was taken over by Bill Siegel, who played an excel- lent game throughout the season. At Right Tackle Coach Bergman put Howie Jones, the sophomore sensation. And last but not least, was Dave Metz at Right End.

The first loss in two years for the Tigers was suffered at Leroy in the only night game of the season. A.C.H.S. scored their only touchdown early in the second quarter when Phillips went over the one yard line. A powerful Leroy team scored once in the first quarter and twice in the fourth quarter. The final score was Leroy 19, Amherst 6. The next game was at home against VVest Seneca. This game was highlighted by the dedica- tion of the new stands.

Soccer Stampede I' The 'scores of the past soccer season would prob- ably bring the onlooker to believe that the '48 team did not have a very successful season. In the goals scored, andlgames won, they did notg but success is not always measured in the number of wins or losses, but rather, as a great sportswriter once said " . . . in the way the game is played." It can be truth- fully said that the fellows played every team with the same aggressive spirit that, if allowed to material- ize, would certainly have put them on top. Right up to the whistle the boys fought a hard, fast, and clean game. This year the squad received more than their share of troubles. During the latter part of the sea- son rain, and even snow, made the ground one muddy mess, and consequently it was diflicult to obtain enough practice. Charles Oddo, this year's captain and highest scorer, was injured in the middle of the 7 44 TowER . J. V.

Q I 6 The Cross Counlry Trail Amherst Central had good reason to be proud of its Cross Country team this year for our fastest growing sport finished the second undefeated season in its three short years of existence as a varsity sport. Much of the credit for this success can be given to coach Don. Munson, a former track and cross-coun- meets, an excellent achievement in itself. The "Harriers" were plenty nervous before their run with East Aurora, also undefeated up to that time, but all fears were eliminated when the score was counted. Captain Al Heinen, unbeaten all season, took Hrst place, Ted Wletherbee, a three-bar letter man, captured fourth, Bob Weiner fifth, Al Acker seventh, Don VVillert ninth, and Jack Foley, a freshman, tenth. Another close call appeared when the group had to be split up to run Portville and Oak- field in the same week, but the "half teamsn came through expertly in spite of this, and won both meets. The Section VI Championship run was held at Lancaster's Como Park this year and the Amherst Harriers strode across the finish line before the ten other teams entered to win by sixteen points. Next year's squad will have these letter men returning to strengthen it: Ted Wletherbee, Al Acker, Bob Weiner, Don Willert, Jack Foley, Dave Dickens and Don Deichman.

Swimming Summary This year's swimming team opened their season at Kenmore, the home of our arch rival, and found plenty of trouble supplied by our willing neighbors. After shaking the water from their ears, the squad traveled to Tonawanda to be met by an unyielding host who left us to drown in our defeat. Lockport was next, but this time the "Tigers" proved their worth by trouncing the "Lock City" group by twenty points. The "Lumber- jacksu from North Tonawanda proved to be too much for our splashers and they proceeded to give us another bitter taste of defeat. But the Orange and Black recovered quickly and dished out a cool welcome to the"Big Red" team from Niagara Falls in the next clash. The second round provided a real thriller as we dropped a close one to Kenmore by four points. Our worst defeat of the season was handed to us in our next swim with Tona- wanda as they pushed us under by 42 points. Amherst revived in time to overthrow Lockport for the second time, but only to watch the last two meets go to North Tonawanda and Niagara Falls. Although the mermen did not have an outstanding number of i wins, we did have many individual stars who outshone the opposi- i tion. Harold Brundige, who left for Bowling Green in the second semester, was considered the best diver in the league and Tom YVilson turned in a 1:10.4 time to break the school record for the 100 yard breast stroke. Phil Machlurray, Tom VVilson, and Bob Dickson placed fourth in the hiedley relay finals. Other constant liilglbscorers on the team were Dick Gleason, Ken Woods, and Dave c aln.

A Coach Hettler gives Paul Domroes and Don Berger some advice. The Crowd - Roclrs ! ! After being undefeated in the Northern Erie County League and winning two playoff games the Amherst Central Tigers were upset in the finals of the Section VI, Class A playoffs at lNIemorial Auditorium. It came at the hands of a classy Fredonia quintet. The final record for Amherst was eighteen wins as against one defeat. There were only three teams in the N.E.C.L. that could match Amherst's superior strength. In the first Ham- burg game Amherst led by five points at the half, but the Purple and White put on a last half drive that nearly gave Amherst their first setback. WVith thirty seconds left Don Phillips sank a one-handed push-shot to put the game on ice. Pine Hill, who finished tie with Hamburg for third place gave the Tigers a scare. With a minute to play, and Amherst winning 48 to 40, the Hilltoppers scored three quick baskets before the final gun went off. In the next game with East Aurora, Amherst had to keep pace in the fourth quarter to win 42 to 40. Capt. Don Berger sank what proved to be the Winning basket with two minutes to go. The rout of the season was probably the Williamsville game. The Billies just didn't have it that night as Berger, Phillips, Fowler, Domroes and Walsh collaborated for 47 of Amherst 58 points. The final score- A.C.H.S. 58-Williamsville 37. The quarter-finals of the Section VI basketball tournament were held at North Tonawanda High School. Amherst barely came through beating Barker 35-34. Don Phillips accounted for 24 of his team's 35 points. In the semi-finals the game was held at Kenmore Junior High School, Amherst overwhelmed Sloan 47-34. This victory qualified Amherst to meet Fredonia in Buffalo Memorial Auditorium. After leading at the half 22-17, the Tigers scored only 19 points in the second half to F1-edonia's 26. This was Amherstis first setback of the 1948- 49 campaign. Coach Bob Hettler had Capt. Don Berger and Dick Fowler at Forwards. Paul Domroes and Ray Haas at Center and Don Phillips, Norm Walsh, and Herb Vincent at Guards. Phillips was the top point-getter with 271. This cracked John Krochmals school record of 238 last year. Dick Fowler and Don Berger scored 171 and 158 respectively. The team as a whole had a 884 point total for a 46.5 points per game average. This mark was the highest ever maintained by an Amherst team. A majority of the credit should be given to Coach Hettler, who in his two years as Varsity coach has won 36 of 37 games.

Native Music This year our music department began a new program in which the students 1 themselves have taken over a great deal 3 ' 5. of the Work involved in this expanding Held. The major organizations have :I elected student officers to help the direc- 'N X XX tors in their Work. In the Band, Ann X Shelley was elected Presidentg Richard ,5 Crawfordg Vice President, Donna Reck- seen, Treasurerg Mary Helen Rutherford, I Secretary-Librarian. In the orchestra Lois Murray serves as Librarian. The ofiicers for the Mixed Chorus are Howard i J ones, Student-Directorg Joy Pollack, MR' KRESTIC Business Manage-rg Marjeanne Jensen, ' Librariang and James Orth, Treasurer. All of our home Football games were enlivened at the halves by Mr. Krestic, the Majorettes, and the Band. They played, marched, and made formations on the field. Many of our Band members are also members of the Buffalo Bill's Band, directed by Mr. Krestic. This year many of our students journeyed to Lancaster to perform in the Sectional All-State Orchestra, Band, and Choir. These organizations are made up of selected music students from high schools all over the state who get together for a few days to rehearse as a group and then give a concert. Last Spring, the Sectional All-State Music Festival was held at Amherst, and all of our music organizations received a top rating of I. This is a record yet to be broken by any other school participating in this Festival. Some of us may have had trouble in hearing ourselves think during our home basketball games, due to the 0 ' ' x ,xg wi Director 56 TOWER 0 STRING TRIO Roger Shaw, Joan Petrunick, Iois Murray zestful playing of our basketball band. They really put a lot of spirit into the games, and they deserve a lot of credit. Our majorettes have really kept themselves busy this year. Besides twirling at our football games, the girls have twirled at the Band Concerts, University of Buffalo basketball games, and our basketball games at Memorial Audi- torium. ' Following is a list of all the concerts given by our major organizations. October Q1 The Orchestra played for the Erie County Teacher's Association on our stage. November 16 The joint concert, given by the Band, Orchestra, Mixed Chorus, Boys' Chorus, and Girls' Chorus, was presented to an appreciative audience. January 21 The combined Amherst and University of Bullialo Band presented a concert on our stage.

February 21 The combined Band gave a concert at Kleinhans' Music Hall. February 25 The All-Orchestra concert got off to a bang with the March of the Meistersingers as the Hrst piece. This certainly has been a busy month for the music department. April 7 Our three choruses presented their annual concert. Congratulations to Mr. Reitz and Mrs. Cornell for their Wonderful Work.

Each of these groups had about 25 members. Tl1e junior division program generally consisted of teaching the fundamentals and work on the National Rifle Associ- ation qualiiications which each individual may earn. These are: Pro-marksman, Marksman, hlarksman First Class, and Sharp-shooter. There are nine states of the Sharpshooter rank taking tlIe shooter through each of the four shooting positions, and aiming toward the rank of Expert. There is but one higher rank in gallery shooting, the rank of Distinguished Rifleman, which is so diHLicult to attain that but one member, James Brunn, has ever earned it. The senior high school program carries on where the junior division stops. NRA qualification shooting con- tinues, but this year a Junior League consisting of Amherst, Kenmore, Lancaster, East Aurora, and a Scout team was formed which carrid on a regular sched- ule of match competition. Some postal matches and the Army Course of Fire for Army medals were also fired. The team has been somewhat handicapped by several factors beyond its control. This year less than five experienced shooters returned. The biggest blow, how- ever, was to have the Army order them to return the rifles they had loaned them. The team however received replacements soon enough to enable them to make a good showing in the high point of the riiie season, the National Junior Tournament in March.

D g S - M S The Student Council is one of the most active organizations at Amherst Central. The purpose of this group is to promote the general Welfare of A.C.H.S. student activities through coordination and unification of control. Activities of the Student Council vary greatly. In 1948-1949 the Council sponsored the clean-up week, the Community Chest Drive, the monitor system, and the annual Christmas party for the students. Promoting a friendlier relationship between the faculty and the student body is another one of the functions of the organization. The group is efficiently guided by Don Berger, Presidentg Al Ciminelli, Vice-Presidentg Lois Zierk, Secre- taryg and Bob Buddin, Treasurer.

We not only help others, however, we help ourselves retain loy- ality to our Alma Mater and continued spirit and interest in school affairs. The ALUMNI BULLETIN, a paper publish- ed quarterly, has become in international news- paper keeping all graduates well informed of social affairs being held,bits of news of our men in service, plus the facorite column, WHO'S WHERE AND WHY, which includes en- gagements, weddings, jobs, and who rides the Williamsville Bus. This paper reached the printing stage only because of the excellent leadership of Joseph Radder, Class of 1938, editor-in-chief. Never to be forgotten is the Annual Christmas Dance, the highlight on the social calendar of every Alumnus. lt's a "must"- so don't you miss the Annual Christmas Dance of 1949. .' 711' V ' 'll ..
