Each individual makes a selection suited to his particular taste. There are those who are content with only snacks, there are those who do not eat well or the proper food and those who need treatment for indigestion, namely our failing students. However, most of us love to eat and eat well of the educational food served with such finesse, taste, and attraction by our faculty of waiters. Cf course we are not all connoisseurs of the best, but the students seem to know when they are satisfied. Our seventh and eighth graders may be compared to appetizers. Our freshman class is served soup which introduces them to their formal dinner. A healthful salad is presented to our sophomores. To the hungry juniors, we give our main course. The senior class is offered the dessert. We might call our post-graduates the after dinner mints. Anything added to the dinner by means of culture, background or enter- tainment is easily procured on our Amherst menu. The music department exhibits their skills in the provision of background music through singing, band, and orchestral selections. Dramatic organizations furnish varied enter- tainment. Students are thus enabled through education to carry on interesting topics of conversation to further the pleasant effects and digestion of their meal. Much of the seasoning of our dinner comes through the numerous extra- curricular activities in which our students participate. These all help to increase the Amherst appetites. May the theme of the 1950 Tower offer food for thought and memories of another year at Amherst Central High School. Stuff-Me THE Amherst menu is portrayed by our mythical character, the STUFF-ME. He typilies any student participating in classes and activi- ties during the school year. The STUFF-ME has grown fat on the food served by our educational staff. 4 THE Senior Class has chosen Mr. Edwin C. Mustard as the most deserving teacher in 1950. During his six years at Amherst, he has won the respect and co-operation of many students hoth in and out of his history classes. His attitude toward us has reflected his keen interest in our welfare and that of the entire school. His outstanding intelligence and capable performance as a teacher have won him the dedication of the TOWER. N K ff 1 1 ' m o o W Af!

This year was a busy one for the members of the Tower staff. Their activities, all of which culminated in the production of this yearbook, included the sale of Christmas wrapping papers, a subscription drive for three months in the fall, and many afternoons of .hard work and fun in room 220. The editors wish to extend their thanks to Mr. Holder for his able direction and to all of the staff for the time and effort they sacrificed to make this 1950 Tower.

Under the guidance of Mr. Minich, Marilyn Marchand, Richard Schaller, and the oflicers, this years Student Council has worked on many proiects for the bc-nent of Amherst Central. The Constitution was revised and By-laws were added. A new system was started in which all school activities are chartered under the Council, Also, the G 5 7 membership was narrowed down to one representative from each homeroom in order Q , Q to have a more workable Council. Next year a handbook will be available to acquaint u H LJ - new students with Amherst's ways. Other activities of the Student Council were spon- 'QJ LJ 17 soring drives, campaigns, and the annual Christmas party. x ' , The ofhcers were as follows: President, Robert Buding Vice-President, l.ois Zierkg my I g 1 'X 4 TK Secretary, Nan Hart. and Treasurer, Martin Meidel, The capable advisers were Mrs. ' 15, Husband and Mr. Rosenberry. 19 roxvea M js -1 ,Q -f. . ::, w 5 , as ,, m A 15?

Twice Baseball Champions of the Northern Erie County League, Amherst retreated to fifth place in the '49 season. After a shaky start of losing the First two games by one and eleven runs respectively, the Tigers snapped back sinking powerful Depew 7-5, and followed through with a thrilling 8-7 win in a non-league tussle with Tonawanda, the Class AA Niagara Frontier champs. Continuing the season with alternating wins and losses, Amherst finished with a 6 and 10 record, five of which were league encounters. Although the team record wasn't outstanding, Am- herst produced several individual stars. Don Drumm led the league in batting with a neat .463 batting aver- 1949 BASEBALL SCORES Amherst Pine Hill 7 Amherst 10 Amherst West Seneca 12 Amherst 2 Amherst Depew 5 Amherst 9 Amherst Tonawanda 7 Amherst 8 Amherst Clarence 9 Amherst 3 Amherst Akron 15 Amherst 10 Amherst Hamburg 8 Amherst 11 Amherst Williamsville 4 Amherst 3 age, and team members Herb Vincent, Ken Bachman, and Don Berger kept well above the .300 mark. In the fielding department, the infield came through with many outstanding double plays and other stylish feats backed up by superb ball retrieving from men deep in the oats. The prospects for the coming season look bright since nine Varsity lettermen will be back. They are as follows: Ken Backman, Herb Vincent, Norb Walsh, Don Haller, Don Daigler, jack Georger, Bob Mellon, Don Deichman, and Ken Hanour, With added power supplemented by last year's champion j.

GOLF Amherst's Linksmen, under the coaching of Mr. Ungerer, produced a very excellent record for the 1949 season. The N F C L crown came to Amherst for the third time. At the sectionals, the Tigers came off the course 4 points better than their closest rival, East Aurora. This gave them the Section VI, Class A title.

TRACK The 1949 track team will be remembered as Western New York Conference champions, Section VI champions, and holders of four school records, four Conference records, and two Section VI records-quite a record. In the hrsr three meets of the season, the Tigers were edged out by one point at East Aurora, ran rampant over Lancaster and Pine Hill in a tri-meet, and easily won a meet with North Tonawanda at which Walt Lindsey made a tremendous broad jump of 21'4 to set a new mark in that event. At the Conference meet, five teams, including East Aurora hands of the and Hamburg, went down to defeat at the Amherst trackmen. Walt Lindsey, Al Heinen, and the relay team of Don Kingman, Ed Dewey, Gerry Stemens and George Ramsey established new records in the 220, the mile, and the relay, respectively. Don Kingman also tied the Conference record of 10:6 for the 100. The meet with Hamburg was disappointing for Amherst as the Orange and Black went down to defeat by 17 points, but the team bounced tight back by beating thirteen teams, including Hamburg, in the Sectionals. Al Heinen, who was undefeated all season, won the mile, Paul Domroes took the 440, while Don Kingman captured the 100. Kingman, Stevens, Ramsey, and Knop set a new sectional record in winning the relay. Walt Lindsey ended a phenomenally suc- cessful season by scoring victories in the broad jump and 220, and by putting a new sectional record for the 220.

Amherst, the mythical champ of the WESTERN NEW YORK INTERMEDIATE FOOTBALL CONFER- ENCE in I9-18, in I9-'19 was a team of fickle fate, but each and every player was in himself an individual champ because of his everlasting initiative to fight. Our record of three wins, four defeats and one tie tells the story of a never relinquishing team. The ensuing efforts of stalwart line-men like Dave Bolton, Tony Teresi, Chuck Cassety, and Howie jonesg the sharp quarter- backing of Herb Vincentg the hard deceptive running of Norb Walsh, Red Hodson, Don Kingman, and Carl Clements, the tremendous line and backfield play of Al Ciminelli, and the payoff efforts of sophomore sensa- tions as Dick Ferrick and Bruce Quimby, all help in telling the story of a team - the team of courage. Coach Bergman started in the season opener at le. McGee, lt. Ciminelli, lg. Bolton, c. Teresi, rg. Kistner, rt. Hardy, re. Bachman, qb. Vincent, lhb. Walsh, rhb. Hanour, and fb. Clements. Throughout the season many changes were made to strengthen weak links as well as hlling in for injuries. Standouts were many, but just to mention one, Red Hodson was the team scoring leader with 35 points. Opening the season at Fredonia on Friday night, Sep- tember 25rd, Amherst did not measure up to previous performances. The first and third times Fredonia had the ball they quickly cashed in on l3 points, thus lead- ing l5 to 0 at halftime. Later in the second half Fre- donia tallied another six points to give Amherst its worst setback in years and to notch another game on to their own unbeaten string of l9. Enough said- Fredonia 19 - Amherst 0 Forgetting their woes of the previous week, the Tigers opened their home season against a well regard- ed Depew eleven. Halfway through the second quarter, Amherst, in failing to make a first down, kicked from the Depew 40 to their 3. Fearing the closeness of the defending goal line, Depew elected to punt. A fumble enabled Al Ciminelli to recover in the EZ for our initial tally. Storming back in pursuing fashion, Depew scored a TD, leaving the score all tied up at halftime 6-6. A few plays after the final period had started, Red Hodson shot a pass over left end to George Ramsey, who picked up substantial interference and carried 51 yards to the Depew ll. After a two yard loss, Don Kingman plunged for l l yards and a first down on the lib, setting up Hodson's score around right end. Stopping a spirited Depew movement, Norb Walsh intercepted a pass on his own 23 and raced 77 yards for the TD. Walsh's PAT attempt was good, climaxing the scoring for the after- noon and rewarding Amherst a successful inaugural 20-6. Traveling to Albion, Amherst triumphed to its second win in as many weeks. Clements opened the scoring with a nine yard run around left end and Ramsey added another midway in the second quarter ln the second half with a highly spirited eleven, Am- herst's Arth, Ferrick, and Hodson lugged the leather for the rallies handing Albion its third straight loss 53-6 The next week, invading Hamburg spelled a tough game. The Tigers kicked off to Hamburg, who after a few storming plays fumbled and Tiger Bob Wiley re- covered for Amherst. Quickly capitalizing its efforts, four plays later, Carl Clements scored from his four, TOWER finishing Amherst's scoring for the afternoon. However, Hamburg wasn't through. They tallied 19 points in the first quarter and added 13 more in the second half, giving Amherst the worst shellacking in many a season, 52-6. Seven days later, the Tigers played hosts to a new rival, the Olean Oilers. On the kickoff to Olean, the oilers fumbled, and Amherst's Paul Archambeau fell on the ball in the EZ for the opening TD. Bruce Quinby added our second tally in the second quarter from the five, to give the Tigers half-time lead 12-0. With re- juvenated spurts of football prowess, Olean collected six points in the third. Early in the fourth Dick Ferrick of Amherst raced from his own 10 to the Olean 45, where Herb Vincent took a screen pass and swept the remaining 45 yards for the six points putting the Tigers ahead 18-6. But now Olean, who trounced back with an easy seven points 90 seconds before the gun, unmercifully handed Amherst its third defeat 20-18. Playing our last home game of the season brought to town undefeated Leroy, who claimed Amherst's only defeat of the preceding season. Late in the second quar- ter Leroy went TD bound and supplemented the PAT, which later proved to be the winning margin. Leroy opened the second half with a quick score, only to have Don Kingman of Amherst follow suit with a 57 yard run setting up Hodson's one yard plunge to pay dirt. In the fourth, on attempted Leroy lateral, Chuck Cassety broke through the Leroy line, swiped the ball, and galloped 80 yards in the TD fashion. Amherst's un- successful try for the PAT doomed our winning hopes for the second time because of the team's unsuccessful efforts to follow through with extra point conversion. Amherst, playing the last two games on the road, in- vaded West Seneca on the following Saturday. Early in the second period, Red Hodson scooted around right end to tally, and Herb Vincent split the uprights for the PAT. Later in the quarter, Don Kingman intercepted a West Seneca pass on his own 55 and carried to the opponent's 3, setting up his off-tackle score two plays later. Hodson added the point with an end run putting the Tigers in front 14-0, Holding West Seneca to 7 points in the second half, Amherst grabbed their third win 14-7. Closing out the season with a night game at Lancas- ter, Red Hodson, a Tiger standout, scored around end late in the second quarter. Hodson climaxed Amherst's scoring for the year with a repeated end run for the extra point, After rough third and fourth quarters, Lancaster scored and converted in the closing minutes of the game setting up a final 7-7 deadlock.

VARSITY Amherst came up with the best team in the league this year as the orange-and-black-clad booters Hnished the season with more victories than any other team in the Erie County League, to give Amherst its first soccer championship in its history. The squad played host to Woodlawn in the opener, beat- ing them 5-1. The Tigers then proceeded to shut out every team in the league in the next five games, while scoring sixteen points for themselves. But, as all good things must come to an end, Holland hnally broke Amherst's string of six straight wins by beating us 5-0. Then there was a mad scramble between Amherst and Holland for the title. Our boys took the next one from Orchard Park 4-2, but then dropped the second last game of the season to Gowanda, 2-1, which meant the race would continue right down to the wire. Holland was one point behind Coach Wratten's league- leading kickers. If Holland won their last game, Amherst would also have to be victorious in order to finish on top. That is exactly what happened.

Scorers were Dick Hawks, ten points, Walt Lindsey, eightg Dick Schaller, sixg and Bob Conn, jack Georger, and Paul Wehrle, with two apiece. Goalie Roy Fowler and fullbacks Bill and Dave Jones were very successful as defensemen. They allowed only an average of slightly over one point per game to be scored against them. They may also be proud of those live straight shutout victories against every team in the league. Q Q crtoss .fa Q, Fin! row: Bruce Aiken, Kenneth Walker, jack Foley, Robert Weiner.

For the third time in four years with Mr. Munson as coach, Amherst's harriers completely outdistanced their rivals in both team and individual performances. The team's record this year consists of five straight victories, including the Section VI championship run at Fredonia. At Barker where there were twelve teams in competition, the Tigers showed an outstanding example of teamwork. Ted Wetherbee, number one man on the team, stayed behind the leaders in order to pull his teammates into better posi- tions. Although he only finished in third place, the job was well done, for the Orange and Black scored a low of 46, beating Fredonia, who was second, by 47 points. Two weeks later the team was split into two groups to enable the squad to run in two meets in one week. Again the Amherstonians showed their superiority, the first group scoring an almost perfect 17 against Letchworth Central's 38, while the second group also won with 25 points to Gowanda's 44 and Oakfield's 51. After rolling over East Aurora, 21-34, the squad met undefeated Fredonia, By placing nine runners in the first eleven to cross the line, out boys won and thereby became the favorites for the Section VI championship. Wetherbee posted a winning time of 12:28:5 minutes, easily breaking the records, held by Ken Plumb and John Krockmal for the ZW mile course. CROSS COUNTRY SQUAD COU TRY As a fitting climax to the season, the runners, carrying the Orange and Black, outran all opposition in the Sectionals and were crowned as the Section VI champions. Wetherbee again took the honors by finishing first and shattering the Fredonia course record in the time of 1215115 minutes. Other scorers in this meet were Ken Walker, Bruce Aiken, jack Davis, and Bob Weiner. Team results of the meet are as follows: Amherst, 353 Fredonia, 613 Gowanda, 67, East Aurora, 91, Olean, 115, and Lancaster, 162.

SWIMMI When Coach Tierney gave the first call for swimming this year, he expected thirteen lettermen back. With the return of only seven of those, the team's hopes were lowered considerably. Tonawanda won over the Tigers in the First meet of the season. Following this meet, the team traveled to North Tonawanda, where the Lumberjacks scored a perfect vic- tory by sweeping every event. The team began to improve after these two losses and broke into the win column the following week by defeating Lockport. Niagara Falls came to Amherst next and improved their record in a meet that was very close despite a margin of thirty-two points. Then came three straight losses to Kenmore, Tonawanda, and North Tonawanda, the top teams of the league.

The team, now under the direction of Mr. Gelsinger, won their first victory over Orchard Park 21 to 18, only to lose by forfeit in two weight classes. The winners for Amherst were Don Worth, Tom Christman, john McGee, Robert Baus and Barry Westin. The other members of the team include james Whitman, George Harlock, George Whitney, Tom Walsh, Richard Knop, Paul Belair, Ron Huebel, Clyde Ponivas, Bill Higgins, Al McGowan, Paul Dahmer and Elliot Springstead.

BASKETB LL At the beginning of the i9-50 basketball season, all predictions regarding Amhersts chances of retaining the Northern Erie County League Championship for the third straight year were pessimistic. However, as the season wore on, the proud Orange and Black mir- acle men gained a winning momentum to end the reg- ular schedule in a three-way tie for first place with Hamburg and Wfilliamsville. To eliminate such a dead- lock, the NECI. set up a special playoff series, in which Hamburg and Amherst qualified for the final game played at the University of Biifialos Clark Memorial Gym. That night, the Bulldogs from Hamburg held the defending champs to their two year reign by handing our Tigers a -H-36 setback. Losing the first league encounter to a routed Depew five, 35-54, the Tigers surged through the schedule with a record of eleven wins and three losses. Accounting for the two other defeats. Amherst dropped a poorly played game to inspired Lancaster -i7--15 in their first meeting. ln the other loss, Hamburg, who was already beaten once by Amherst, intercepted .1 Tiger pass in the last forty seconds of play, sank the shot diminishing 69 PAI ll. DUMROIZS Mt..-. Ncfew-s'-0 'm-Y i., 1 ROY EOWLER HERB VINCENT Amherst's one point lead and rewarding the boys from Hamburg a 31-30 victory. Casting aside the sad moments, Amherst high- lighted the season with two hard fought wins over rival Williamsville, who at each respective time was leading the league. Each contest provided many thrill packed incidents as Coach Hettler directed his stern defenses to deaden the highly touted offensive of our Billsville neighbors. Other startling and glorifying Amherst con- quests were the one point early season victory tripping Hamburg and the very typical impressive last quarter Tiger drive overcoming a dangerous Pine Hill lead. This sent the Hilltoppets to gloom with a 37-34 deci- sion. To this point, we haven't awarded esteemed recogni- tion to the individual. The lineup was as follows: Captain Paul Domroes and Roy Fowler at forwards, George Ramsey at center, Herb Vincent and Norb Walsh at guards, with Dick Hawks and Barry Cahill supplementing needed strength as capable sixth and seventh men. Much pride and honor was contributed by the sophomore class when their flashy ace, Roy Fow- ler, hooped 31 points to crack johnny Krockmal's previous one game high of 26. Paul Domroes captained the team with great assurance and ability while his senior team mates, Herb Vincent and Norb Walsh, made up the finest guard duet of the league. Graduation this year will leave three vacancies to be filled by able squad members in aiding the returning Roy Fowler and George Ramsey in another sensational season next year.

These qualities have been prevalent in our own seven-girl squad this past year. Marge Sullivan, Natalie Howell, and Doris Jones, remaining 49ers , were joined this year by joan Lacke, Helen Tassio, Mar- jeanne Jensen, and Waudell Kostenbader. Owing to the capable leadership of these girls and their coach, DOC Doc Pankow, the school spirit this year exceeded all previous bounds. In addition to their regular activities, the cheer- leaders presented many pep assemblies, sold Amherst mittens, made and sold programs at all home games, presented their annual football dance, and introduced several new cheers. TOWER fo :fb GIRLS' SPORT SEASON More girls than ever before participated in the many activi- ties offered after school. In the fall, soccer was held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, hockey, on Weclnesclay and Friday. Teams were formed to compete intramurally and our Amherst girls were very successful. During the winter, basket- ball, running with a round-robin style tournament, was played on Tuesday and Friday. This was also intramural along with the swimming team which practiced on Tuesday. Waterftrllies began late this season and was held at the end of April. A new tumbling club was formed this winter. Spring sports consisted of baseball, tennis and earlier, badminton. This full schedule was coached by Mrs. Teach Husband and Miss Peach Ackley.

Two representatives from each girl's homeroom composed the council which was run by president, jan Beard, vice-president, Diana Heywood, treas- urer, Patricia Randall, and secretary, june McMillian. An important function of this group is the scholarship fund which is made possible by the annual Waterfollies under the direction of Mrs. Husband and Miss Ackley. The theme of the 50 Follies was Occupations At the annual Sports Banquet, the girls who have acquired a certain number of points are awarded small, medium, or large letters.

X f ig J' MUSIC Nineteen forty-nine and nineteen lifty have proved to be the biggest years in the history of our school. The professional attitude of both our musicians and teachers has brought perfection to our instrumeptal music. ORCHESTRA The orchestra began their active season by present- ing several light selections during an October assembly. The Senior orchestra combining with a newly formed Junior organization. gave a mixed program of music in December. Several members of the orchestra attended the Sec- tional All High Concert at Hamburg. The highlight of this year's musical activities was the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, H.M.S. Pinaforef' All three musical departments performed in this produc- tion held on February seventeenth and eighteenth. The Spring Musical Festival terminated the efforts of all our talented school musicians. DEP RTME T VOCAL This year the vocal department, under the direction of Walter Reitz, has increased in size. In place of last year's junior High Chorus, there is a seventh and eighth grade chorus. In the Senior High there are also two divisions: the Mixed Chorus, and the Mixed Choir. The Mixed Choir elected officersg the president is Carol Leighbody. The other officers are George Hurd, and Arlene Beck. Both of the Senior High organizations combined to present an assembly program. They also took part in the operetta H.M.S. Pinaforen with the help of the Drama- tic and Orchestra departments, Their performance will be long remembered by all. A few members were chosen to represent Amherst at the All State Sectional Chorus which was held at Ham- burg on November seventeenth and eighteenth. ENSEMBLES The Woodwind Quintet composed of Ann Shelly, Mary Helen Rutherford, Jack Sandford, Richard Craw- ford, and Robert Hughes, has presented almost twenty concertsduring the school year. The expert musician- ship expressed by the players has gained many honors for the organization. The String Quartet composed of Margerie Boulden, joan Petrunick, Mary Lou Olsen, and Roger Shaw has been supervised by Mr. Kaza. Many audiences were able to appreciate their skilled playing. MR.

I Q 1 The long-awaited second Boys' Hi-Y was successfully organized, and is now in Close competition with the original club. I The club, itself, is organized to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character, but it is far from being strictly a Sunday school class, The Hi-Y has three other sides, physical, mental, and social, which it also stresses. Examples of this can be shown through the club's many activities which include recreation at the Delaware YMCA, Father and Son banquets, and joint meetings with the Girls' Hi-Y's. Mr. Rosenberry continued to serve as adviser to the Hi-Y. The officers were Paul Zierk President, Robert Geckler, Vice-President, Roger Mueller, Secretary, Richard Crawford, Treasurerg and Colin Hamilton, Chaplain.
