IN THE DAY BY DAY STRUGGLE for'the acquisition of knowledge and the development of char-
acter, it seemed to the students that Amherst was like a jungle, symbolic of life, with a
chance to succeed or a chance to fail. 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-
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. A

To the class of '49 there is one outstanding personality who, by his kindness, thoughtfulness,
and sincerity, has contributed more than any other one individual to our success at A.C.H .S .
His enthusiastic interest and friendly guidance have won the wholehearted respect and admiration
of both the faculty and the students. Therefore, we dedicate this TOWER to Ill r. Rosenberry.

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.

If the Western New York
Intermediate Football Confer-
ence had recognized a champion
it would have been Amherst
Central. 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
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.

wet, drizzly day. After an ex-
change of punts early in the sec-
ond quarter, Don Phillips threw
a 30-yard pass to Bob Hotte for
the first touchdown of the game.
Phillips' try for the extra point
was blocked. Late in the fourth
quarter Don Drumm bucked the
center of the line for 2 yards
and the second T.D. Two plays
after Phillips had kicked OH,
Lombard intercepted a Depew
pass. On the next play Norb
VValsh ran 52 yards for the third
and final touchdown of the game.
The final score was Amherst 18
and Depew 0.
The next week Albion invaded
our territory but we again tri-
umphed. The first T.D. was
scored by VValsh on an end run
early in the second quarter. A
few minutes later Drumm went
Q5 yards off tackle for the next
touchdown. Two minutes before
the half ended Phillips went 17
yards off tackle for the third
T.D. The fourth touchdown was
scored on the 'idipsie doodle"
play. Phillips threw a pass to
Hotte who immediately lateraled
to Drumm who went 19 yards
for the T.D. Thirty seconds
before the final gun, Albion scored
on a "quarterback sneakf' Phil-
lips converted all our extra points.

The first real test of the season
was the Hamburg game. Ham-
burg completely outplayecl A.C.
H.S. during the first half. At
the end of the third quarter
Phillips threw a short 4-yard
pass to Herb Vincent for the
only T.D. of the game, but his
attempt for the point failed. YVith
five seconds to go in the game,
Amherst had the ball on their
own 2-yard line. On the last play
from scrimmage Phillips took
the ball and sat down in the end
zone for an intentional safety.

saw Amherst play before a ca-
pacity throng at East Aurora.
Early in the 3rd quarter Howie
Jones recovered an E.A. fumble
on the 20-yard stripe. Two plays
later Phillips went over standing
up. The final score was A.C.H.S.
6, East Aurora 0.
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. That day,
with the stands filled to capacity,
Amherst again came through
with a very close victory. Just

brilliant season, Don Phillips

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
This year the squad received more than their

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

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

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-
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.

Girls' Sport Council
Two representatives from each girls homeroom compose the Girl's Sport Council whose purpose is to rep-
resent the girls in recording their points and arranging their activities. This year the very capable president
was Pat Burtwellg the secretary, Jan Beard, and the treasurer, Diana Heywood. Mrs. Husband was the adviser.
It is the aim of every girl who participates in sports to acquire enough points for a large, medium, or small let-
ter. A girl's sport banquet is held each year to award these letters and to also honor the "all-around girl" who

As for the sports themselves, in the fall hockey was played on
Wednesday and Thursday, and soccer on Tuesday and Friday
afternoons Miss Ackley and Mrs Husband coached these sports
Later the swimming team practiced on Tuesdays with Water Follies
practice beginning in January Colors was chosen as the theme
A different schedule was followed this year in basketball. The girls
formed teams and selected names such as-"The Kolloffls Killers,"
"The Good Galsf' "Yah0os,', "49ers," "Paralizing Perry's,,' and
' A 1 many more. The teams played on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
The program this year was a huge success thanks to our marvelous
leaders-Mrs. Husband and Miss Ackley.

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

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-
Following is a list of all the concerts given by our major organizations.

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

We know we express the voice of the whole school in giving them our sincerest

This year the junior high school shooters were divided
into two groups, one under the direction of Mr. Munson
and the other under the supervision of Mr. Patelunas.
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
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.

and a tour of historical spots in and around Albany.

Members of the Library Club are chosen from the students who apply for library service. They are
selected on the basis of class period available, with upper classmen given preference. Continuance on the
stafl' depends on cooperativeness, business-like attitude, and interest in the work.
Their work includes acting as library monitors, planning bulletin boards, assisting in book preparations,
filing of cards, reference material, and shelving books.
This year over thirty-five applied, but there were opportunities for only twenty-live. Miss Margaret
Carnahan and Mrs. Ealean Hannel were in charge of the Library Club.

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. Mrs. Husband and Mr. Mustard are the capable advisors of our Student

grown rapidly in the three years of its exist-
ence. It has made provision for the Paul King
Memorial Award which is presented to a sen-
ior furthering his education. 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,
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.
