It is a deep reminder of the peace . . . . . h. and tranquillity of gracious living that all of us would like to regain 1n t IS modern age. Our plantation is a fami iar ric gg Planters in the Old South, not planters of cotton, but of knowledge. To us the whole student body represents the many Cotton Pickers on the plantation, gathering knowledge and experience, the components of mature men and women, in place f tton needed for the finished cloth. The Mississippi showboat which brought a o co world of gaiety and entertainment into the South can be compared to our many 'l' b ' k buildin our teachers are symbolic of the and varied extracurricular activities.

The Student Council, composed of one elected repre- sentative from each homeroom in the school, is the student government of Amherst Central High. Its execu- tive body consists of the president, George Hurd 3 the vice-president, Marjeanne Jenseng the treasurer, Mary Lou Henderson g and the secretary, Nancy Beard. The entire council is under the very capable guidance and supervision of Mr. Rosenberry and Mrs. Husband. There are three major aims of the student council: to promote i p and guide the activities of students so as to secure for them extensive experience in self-initiated and self- ,' i directed enterprisesg to encourage wide opportunities to S participate in the civic responsibilities of the school g and A, Mtv' . to develop a patriotic pride in belonging to a superior " N school community. .I N nl, In the past, the council has proved most successful in ,,'q:.!llti. the execution and fulfillment of these aims. A new juke l ' Uffgmi' K 1 box for the cafeteria was purchased. The Handbook " "" containing essential, everyday information about Amherst was published. Numerous charity drives were sponsored. These are but a fraction of student council projects. Students will remember the football-booster campaign which it promoted. They will recall the sports day pro- gram fostered by the student council as well as the organization of a boys' sports council. In the future, the members of the student council hope to make even greater strides towards fulfilling their responsible aims.

The extra- curricular program of the average student is permeated with sports participation and interscholastic contests. The individual's char- acter and personality are developed by participation in athletics. He learns to get along with others, whether they be teammates or opponents. The purpose of the school sports program is to give each person a chance to excel in some activity to which he is best suited. We are finding out that a sports-minded nation is a healthy nation, and a healthy nation is a powerful nation. To this end, Amherst is constructing a new gymnasium for the sole purpose of advancing our athletic facilities and activities. Our principal, teachers, and parents realize the value of a complete athletic program and have contributed their money to build this beautiful edihce. Sports have risen to their present position of importance be- cause of the practical lesson in co-operation that competitive play affords. Every boy and girl should indulge in sports if only to learn the benefit of working with others. Competitive games instill in us the necessity of living by the code of fair play. By learning to co-operate with his teammates a boy is training for the greater task of living with his neighbors. A person who has learned the responsibilities to his team will certainly recognize his obligations as a member of the community. Leaders in all walks of life have received some of their most valuable lessons on the playing Held. Here courage and confidence are developedg here competition inspires a boy to better himself mentally and physically, and here boys learn to depend on one another to achieve success. The Townn now dedicates the following pages to all of the young men, women, and their coaches who made the athletic program of 1950-51 at Amherst a successful one. '57 TOWER '50 BASEBALL The Varsity Baseball Squad had a very prosper- ous season in 1950, despite the unimpressive record of 9 wins and 7 losses. Five of the seven defeats were lost by very close margins, and could easily have been victories for the Orange and Black. The power of the team -was clearly evident after the first two games of the year in which the Tigers triumphed over the powerful Tonawanda squad by scores of 4 to 3 and 10 to 4. They continued their unbeaten string by downing the Depew Nine, 13 to 10. The squad went to their fourth game with a strong feeling of self-confidence, but were handed a cruel defeat by Clarence 8 to 5. Even though we out-hit the Valley-boys 10 to 9, Clarence's pitcher placed his 8 strike-outs at crucial points. The season con- tinued with a string of alternate wins and losses. VARSITY Many individual players earned recognition be- cause of their outstanding talent and sportsman- ship. Juniors Dick Schake and "Rube" Marquart did a beautiful job as the mainstays in the pitching staff. Herb Vincent, Tom Hodson, Bill Stillinger, and Marquart supplied the majority of hits and game-winning runs. The tight infield combination of Young, Hodson, Vincent, Weiner, and Stillinger provided many thrilling double-plays and force- outs. The "keepers of the oats" prevented many runs from coming across the plate, as a result of quick thinking and equally quick throwing. The chances for a championship team in 1951 are very good, as five lettermen are returning to the ranks, along with a good number of the V.'s marvelous squad, such as pitcher, Al Weigel sec- ond baseman, Kent Bergman, and leading-sluggers Gerry Thuman and Ed Stillinger. First row: Bill Stillinger, Jack Georger, Don Haller, Ken mer, Dick Schake, Tom Peters, Cy Young, Mr. Wratten, Backman, Herb Vincent, Norb Walsh, Don Deichman, Tony Teresi, Bob Marquart, Bob Weiner, Tom Hodson, Don Diegler.

The men from the track and field smashed six school rec- ords, and established four new Conference records and two Section VI AA records. The Tigers began their season with two quick triumphs over Batavia and East Aurora. Ham- burg disregarded our strength and dealt us a 66M-375 defeat in our third encounter of the season. At the Conference meet, Hamburg, again cheated the Tigers out of victory by scoring 53 points to our 41fA. Wing-footed Paul Domroes ran the 220 in 23.1 for a new Conference record. Walt Lindsey, probably the greatest trackman in Amherst's history, set new records in the 440 and broad jump. The relay team of George Ramsey, VARSITY '50 TRACK Don Kingman, Dick Ferrick, and Walt Lindsey set a new mark in the 880 relay. North Tonawanda and Lockport fell victom to the powerful Orange and Black in the closing meets of the year. The Sectionals at Kenmore were another great triumph for the team, as they compiled more points than any of the other thir- teen competing teams to win the Section VI AA championship. Don Kingman cracked his own record for the 100 and Walt Lindsey broke his pre-record in the 220, for new Section VI records. Walt Lindsey graduated last June, but he will be long remembered at Amherst for the fine work he did on the track team. This one-man team scored 69M points to lead the squad in individual scoring. He has set records in the broad jump, 440 and 220 that will probably stand up for a good ,many years. Walt received a four-year track scholarship from North Texas State University.

This liberality gives them a chance to pick the games they can win or to choose the battles they want to win. The Amherst Varsity Foot- ball Squad chose the latter, with every game in their schedule a major encounter. Playing such undefeated teams as Fre- donia, Hamburg, and Leroy, the Tigers went on to great victories and finished the season with a praiseworthy record of five wins, one loss, and one tie. The squad was strengthened by the re- turn of many of last year's team and also some outstanding players from the V. ranks. The masterful backfield combina- tion of fullback, Vincent, halfbacks, Mei- del and Ramsey, and quarterback, Still- inger provided many thrilling moments for the cheering fans. Cy Young's commend- able work at center along with power- house guarding and tackling by Bob Wiley, jerry Skull, Howie Jones, and Jerry Thu- man kept the line as efficient as a brick wall against the opposing forces. Dick Crawford and Jim Arth provided breath- taking catches and also, brilliant defensive blocking at end. Besides the thrilling events of each game, the 1950 season developed some individual stars. The "Mutt and Jeff" duo of towering George Ramsey and little Marty Meidel made scoring history as Amherst's halfbacks. Amherst's statis- tical ratings were superlative to their con- testants'. Marty Meidel led the team in scoring 43 points. Despite the loss of many of the main players this year, Coach Bergman is look- ing forward to another great season in 1951 with a real fighting team.

Bruce Quinby, Dick Ferrick, Chuck Krick, Jerry Thuman, Earl Fowlston, Mike Cer- rone, julian Lambrecht and Dan Gleason, with supplements from the Jayvee squad should make this year's team a champion- ship eleven. Now, for the highlights of last fall's games. The season eleven on the Amherst-gridiron on Satur- day, September 23rd. Fredonia, who was boasting an unbeaten string of 26 games, looked to this inaugural battle as another easy victory. The Tigers had different ideas, however, and proceeded to show the visitors what courage and hard-train- ing could do. In the lst period, big Herb Vincent, powerful post-graduate fullback, intercepted a Fredonia pass on his own 15 yard strip and ran it 79 yards before he was downed. Then Dick Ferrick smashed around end for the TD, to leave the score at half-time 6-0. In the final quarter the Tigers were forced to punt, and a Fredonia back returned the ball from his 20-yard line, all the way to the Amherst EZ for the only Fredonia tally. The Tigers succeeded in tying this team, which didn't know what real power and team-spirit were until that clear Septem- ber day oniour ACHS field. The following Saturday the squad enter- tained the Depew eleven. Marty Meidel, 138-pound senior, captured the spotlight by scoring both Amherst TD's and partici- pating in almost every play. Meidel tal- lied for the first six-pointer in the second period on a thirteen-yard jaunt around end. Fullback Vincent converted from placement. After a half-dozen plays cover- ing 66 yards in the fourth period, Meidel Orange and Black opened their against the powerful Fredonia pushed across around his right tackle from the Depew 3. Final score-13-O. lVith two victories under their belts, the Tigers entertained a determined eleven from 1Vcst Seneca on-October 7. In the early minutes of the game, the Tigers marched 35 yards in Five plays to the oppo- nent's 15-yard strip. Then quarterback Bill Stillinger threw a 12-yard pass to Meidel, who carried the pigskin over for our first TD. The pursuing Indians came right back, however, to carry the ball 80 yards for their tying TD. The visitors scored again in the second period and suc- cessfully converted. Halftime score- Amherst-6, West Seneca-13. In the third period, the "Tornado" moved to the In- dian's 8-yard line, from where Meidel went off tackle for the six-pointer. Meidel, also, ran the extra point, after the team had suffered a penalty for offsides. It was all Amherst from then on. Lineman Jerry Thuman intercepted a pass on the West Seneca 12 yard stripe and skirted end for the touchdown. Stillinger booted the extra point. In the final period, the Tigers be- gan march from the mid-Held strip to their opponent's four-yard line on key plays by Stillinger, Meidel, Vincent, and Chuck Kriek. Vincent carried the ball off tackle for the TD. Stillinger again con- verted. Another victory for the Alma Mater - 27-13. On October 14, the Tigers played the game of the year. They played host to Hamburg, who was boastinga two-year un- defeated record, and planned to continue doing so. Playing on Hamburg's new field, the Tigers piled up 15 points to the Bull- dog's 14 for a great upset victory. Marty Meidel skirted left end from the Hamburg 22 in the first period for Amherst's initial TD. Bill Stillinger then split the uprights from placement for the PAT that eventu- ally settled the game. The Bulldogs came right back after the kick-off for their TD, TOWER but the attempted conversion was wide. The Orange and Black added a two-point safety near the end of the first quarter, when husky Jim Arth tackled a Hamburg back in the end-zone. Both teams scored again in the second period. Dick Ferrick heaved a 25-yard pass to speedy jim Arth for the Amherst TD, while Hamburg car- ried the ball 60 yards for their tally. Both PAT attempts by the two teams were blocked. The halftime score gave ACHS a three-point lead- 15-12. The second half was one of ruthless and bitter defen- sive play, with both teams threatening toe score. With 30 seconds remaining in the game, Bill Stillinger allowed himself to be tackled in the end zone, rather than punt- ing and giving the Bulldogs enough time for two pass plays and a possibility of scoring. By the time the Tigers had kicked off, the clock ran out and Amherst emerged the one point victor. The following week, due to an open date in the schedule, Coach Bergman took the boys to Cornell University to see the undefeated teams of Cornell and Yale bat- tle it out, and to show the team around the huge Ithaca campus. The undefeated, but once-tied Tigers toured to Leroy on October 28th to play their first night game of the season. The powerful Leroy eleven handed the Am- herst squad a bitter defeat by scoring three touchdowns in the first half, and two more in the final quarter. Amherst's two tallies also came in the fourth period, when Vin- cent carried.a Meidel pass 43 yards for the TD, while Stillinger converted from placement. Bill Stillinger caught a perfect FOOTBALL SQUAD screen pass from Dick Ferrick and ran 73 yards for ACHS's final score. 'Nuff said -Leroy 30--Amherst 13. V The squad forgot the loss from the pre- vious week, and dealt a blow to Medina's team in a night game at the opponent's new field. Both teams were greatly handi- capped by freezing air and chilling winds, but after four quarters of grueling play the Tigers arose the Victor 14-6.

Speedy Defen- sive end, Jim Arth blocked a Medina kick on Mcdina's 20 in the opening period. Two plays moved the ball to the 10 yard stripe, and then big George plowed over for the six-pointer. Stillinger's conversion was suc- cessful. Medina added their only tally to the score in the second period on a 35 yard touchdown. Late in the fourth quar- ter, lineman Jerry Thuman intercepted a Medina pass and raced to their 5 yard line before he was stopped. Meidel skirted end for the TD and Stillinger converted again from placement. The Tigers played their final game against invading Lancaster on November 11 in weather which was pleasant for polar bears. Amherst scored two touch- downs in the second period on runs by Herb Vincent and Marty Meidel. Vin- cent scored our first tally after catching a fiat pass from Meidel on Lancaster's 20. Upon being tackled at the 10, he lateraled the ball to "Vince", who carried it over. Lancaster scored their only tally in the final period, to give the Orange and Black another victory '- 18-7.

Captain Jack Davis, Jack Foley, and Everett Boyce took first place honors in many of the vcontests, while newcomers Tyler Lewis and Walt Manske supplied some brilliant running for the squad. Bruce Aiken, senior speedster who was too old to run in the high school meets, set a record in college and open-class running which will be re- membered by Amherst's cross country fans. At the second annual Barker Fair Run, Bruce won the A.A.U. col- Day lege event. He then went on to cap- ture the Niagara District A.A.U. title, and Day then placed first in the Turkey Y.M.C.A. Run.

SWIMMING The Varsity Mermen did not have a successful season as far as the wins and losses column goes, however, the team did turn out some fine work in developing future stars. Out of their twelve meet season, the Tigers won only three contests, Lockport fell once before us and LaSalle dropped both meets to the Orange and Black. The closest match of the season was a 34-32 loss dealt to us by the Lock City mermen in the two teams' second meeting. No records were broken by the 1950-51 squad, however, the team sparked by sophomore mermen came within a hair of smash- ing some of the records set by their' predecessors. Six sophomores ranked among the top nine point-scorers. Brian Male, sophomore who swam the 40 yard free-style, tallied 42 points, while Gerry Wallens, senior diver, scored 39.

TOWER RESTLING The Bowling Team, under the new direc- tion of Mr. Walter Newman, did not have an outstanding season, but had a very eventful year. The varsity squad finished in fourth place with a record of 21 wins and 15 losses. The squad proved to be the only team capable of winning points from first-place Hamburg. Dave Hunkins, Ted Scribner, Add Smith and Wayne Weber exhibited excellent bowling for the team, while Bill Little, Chuck Smith, Ron Halt, and Art Alberts did good jobs, also. Hunkins rolled a record high of 232 in the first game of the season in which the Tigers quintet piled up a commendable 860 total for a victory over Hamburg. Thirty boys, approximately, rolled on intra- mural teams at the Amherst Community Church slides, and the members of the winning team received medals for their achievements.

Amherst added another varsity sport to her athletic program this year. Under the direction of Mr. Gelsinger, the team entered into a five- man league and emerged with a record of 2 wins and 5 losses. As is the Amherst custom in all the extra- curricular activities, much enthusiasm was thrown into wrestling, and eighteen boys did a fine job of representing our alma mater. The wrestlers' weights were so distributed that every weight class was filled by an Amherst entry. Fran and Don Worth, the junior class's star mat-twins piled up point totals of 23 points, apiece, Bill Stillinger headed the 154 pound class with 26 points to his record, while Bob Graham won 16 points in the 165 pound divi- sion and Elliot Springstead collected 14 mark- ers to lead the heavyweights. Jim Wightman, 130 pound junior, also, won 18 points. Jack Bissell, Carlton Hughes, Ron Schoenle and Bruce Quinby showed excellent knowledge and skill of wrestling, also. Since the squad is losing only two members of the team this year, Mr. Gelsinger is looking forward to a championship season in 1950 WRESTLING SCORES Amherst Attica Amherst Depew Amherst Oakfield Amherst Attica Amherst Orchard Park Amherst Depew Amherst Orchard Park BOWLING '50-51 BASKETBALL Dick Hawks, Jim Arth, Bob Marquart, Bob Hettler, Coach. After last year's squad missed the league cham- pionship in a playoff game with Hamburg, the 50-51 cagers were determined to complete their season without any question of being champion. The inspired Tigers raced through the first fif- teen of their eighteen game season without a loss 5 smashing every record in sight. Not until our sec- ond meeting with rival Billsville did the Orange and Black taste defeat, and then they Hnished their league encounters with two more victories. George Ramsey, six-foot five-inch center, estab- lished a new scoring record for the Northern Erie County League by dropping in 302 markers in VARSITY sixteen league games for an all-high average of 18.9 points. Roy Fowler, junior sensation, tallied 268 points for a 16.75 average, while Captain Marty Meidel averaged 13 points a game. Play- maker Al Weigel averaged 6 markers per game, while Cy Young and Dick Hawks averaged 4.2 and 4.5 respectively. Roy Fowler, Cy Young, Bob Mar- quart, and Dick Hawks did a superb job at for- ward positions, while Ramsey held the spotlight at center. Chuck McNerney, up and coming sopho- more, showed brilliant possibilities as substitute center, and Meidel and Weigel guarded the Am- herst nets with professional ability.

The team averaged 68.37 points per game fan- other reeordj, and was the first squad, ever to pass the one thousand mark during a 16 game season. They piled up 1094 points to their opponents' 762. The champs became the first squad to top the century-mark in the NECL, when they trounced the East Aurora quintet, 101-39. The team's scor- ing triplets, Ramsey, Fowler, and Meidel opened the record book again, when they scored 24, 20, and 20 points, respectively, in the second meeting with Lancaster. They were the first three boys to tally 20 or more points in the same game. The Tigers had their closest game of the season in their final battle. Host Hamburg was leading 58-57 with three seconds to go in the game. Speedy Roy Fowler raced in for a lay-up and was fouled. He went to sink both four shots and Hamburg at the same time. Six men will leave the halls of Amherst Central this year, but despite the very important part they played in making this year's team so successful, we still expect to have a top-notch team next season. Fowler and Weigel will return, along with Still- well, McNerney, Baum, Goerger and Evans. The Jayvee stars - Dick Besser, Kent Bergman, Leo Barnes, Roger Nicholson, Si Manspeaker, and Dick Leighbody will supply more championship material. The league champs played Niagara Falls, the champions of the Niagara Frontier League, at thc University of Buffalo court on March 12th. The jump from A to AA competition proved too much for the Tigers, and despite our brilliant playing C4021 of Amherst's shots went through the hoopsj the Redmen piled up a 92-65 victory.

The Girls' Sport Council is composed of two representatives from each girls' homeroom in the senior high. These representatives are responsible for keeping the sports attendance record for each member of their homeroom. At the end of the year the points are compiled and letters are given to the girls who have earned the required amount. The letters are presented at the Annual Banquet. This year the business management of the annual "Water Follies" was handled entirely by the Sport Council. Each year the profits of this event constitute the Alice Buerger Memorial Scholarship Fund. Also for the first time this year all of the girls' interscholastic games were scheduled by the Sport Council. In addition, several schools were invited to participate in a "Play Day" at Amherst. At this event the schools competed in various sports, as basketball, badminton, and swimming. 76 '50 SOCCER Soccer teams, coached by "Teach" tests. In these four games the Amherst teams scored a total of 14 points, while holding their opponents to a scant 4! Both teams were composed entirely of seniors. The opening game was played on Oct. 17, when two Seminary teams invaded our field. The first was nip and tuck for kick and duckl until the final minute, when a member of the opposing team broke through the Amherst defense to score their only goal of'the day. In the second contest Captain Marge Kirk led her team to the Amherst victory of the afternoon. This was a very bruising battle with Tinker Edwards scoring early in the second quarter. As the final whistle blew the Amherst girls were found victorious by the slight margin of 2-O. First row: Sally Bellinger, Jeanne O'Connor, Lucy Harrison, Marge Kirk, Esther- Chapski, Shirley Meyers.

These games were more exciting because of the higher scores. In the first battle Donna Reckseen and Shirley Meyer both scored in the first quarter. Ann Barber "put the game on ice" by add- ing a two pointer in the final period. As Kenmore was unable to break through the Amherst defense, the final count stood Amherst 6, Ken- more 0. In the second game Joan Burke began the parade of goals by scoring in the first half. This was followed by two goals in the last half by Marge Ziebarth. In the final mo- ments the visitors scored to spoil the chance of a shut-out. The goalies, Nancy Horton and Julia Hutchinson, deserve a great deal of credit for their excellent de- fense of the goals. The opening game was played on October 17th, when Buffalo Seminary brought two experienced teams to our fields. In the first contest the oppos- ing team was held to a draw until the third period when the only field goal was scored. After a long uphill struggle, Amherst finally succumbed to a 1-O defeat. In the second game the Seminary girls scored two goals in rapid succession in the first periodg the home team never overcame this lead. Both of these hard-fought games were examples of good fun and sports- manship. On November lst the two hockey teams defeated North Tonawanda. Ellen Brunner scored a field goal in 3 the early moments of the game, and ' Barbara Brustad earned another point for her team in the second half. This wound up the season for the girls with a win of 2-0. m f SWIMMING First row: Donna Wink, Christine Filipowicz, Christine Gillies, Joanne Benson, Jane Poland, Mrs. Husband, Marge Kirk, Anne Hershiser, Shirley Meyer, Nancy Conn.

Two Amherst girls' basketball teams travelled to Park School January 19th to challenge the Park girls. The first game started rather slowly with the primary half ending 3 to 2 in favor of the home team. In the last half the Amherst girls found the range and out-scored their opponents 16 to 13. This made the total 18 to 16 in favor of Amherst. Jackie Blake, a sophomore, scored 9 points, and Joan Slaven made all but one of the remaining points for Amherst. In the next game the other Am- herst team battled the second Park School team to 36-36 tie. This was a fast, high scoring game with plenty of action. On March 9th the Amherst girls played Kenmore and lost a close game after leading 16 to 3 in the first quarter. At the half the score stood 24 to 19 in favor of Amherst. However, as the final whistle blew, the count was re- versed in favor of Kenmore 33 to 32.

Bottom row: Ginger Perrin, Shirley Behrens, Anne Hershiser, Lee McBride, Joy Voll- bracht. This year four of the girls are newcomers to this group. They were selected last year by a process of tryouts and eliminations. The majorettes have not only appeared at the football games, but have performed in the band assembly and at a band concert in March of this year. The girls hold practices and are kept busy de- signing new twirling and marching routines. They will appear in the music festival and are hoping to hold the one-rating which they have received in previous years. TOWER MUSIC ORCHESTRA The principal purposes of this organization are to create young instrumcntalists and present them in con- certs for the pleasure of the student body and the community. The curtain rose for their first performance when they appeared in assembly on the 8th of December. In the annual concert this year, the Junior Orchestra was also featured on the program with the Senior Orchestra and presented a most enjoyable evening. Many members participated in festivals held in nearby communities and the Spring Festival held at Hamburg. Everyone will always remember the outstanding -ac- companiment they provided for the Mikado. Under the leadership of Mr. Kaza, many enjoyable parties were held. The officers for the year were: Joan Petrunick, Presi- dent, Robert Hughes, Vice-President: Jean Brydon, Sec- retary, Lynne Lawson and Richard Deichman, Librarians. BAND During the Spring, the biggest disturbance was the construction of the new music building. However it was sweet sounding to everyone in the music department. The drama was about to become a reality. In fact, it inspired the band to practice more diligently. They made a formal public appearance on March 2nd, Everyone enioyed their formations and the peppy music they provided at the football games. They played for the Westinghouse Family Day and for all of our assemblies. The main aims of the band are to develop musician- ship, provide music for any occasion, and to promote good band music. This was accomplished under the di- rection of Mr. Alfred Castle. Richard Crawford was President, Bob Wiley, Vice-President, Karen Clevinger, Treasurer, and Jane MacLachlan, Librarian. CHORAL DEPARTMENT We wish to congratulate Mr. Reitz on his excellent direction of the Mikado. The choral department made this an outstanding event through their cooperation and enthusiasm. The Mikado shall never die in the hearts of Amherst students. Previous to this appearance, the choir sang for the teachers at the Erie County Teachers Association Convention. In November they gave their first public concert and had Geoffrey O'Hara as their guest artist. In the spring both chorus and choir partici- pated in the Music Festival, and received excellent rat- ings. The President is Nan Hart, Business Manager, John Orthg and Librarian, Dorothy Maratta. Amherst is very proud of her music organizations, and this year has been a truly memorable one for them. Any graduate of Amherst Central will always recall the spirited attitude of the music department which was attained through the untiring effort of our teachers and musicians.

As a result of this increased mem- bership, an Inter-Hi-Y Council was formed to co-ordinate the activities of these different groups. Its membership is composed of the president and one delegate from each club. It was through this organization that the Hi-Y presented their annual dance, "The Turkey Twirl" in the fall. The purpose of Hi-Y is to create, maintain, and extend throughout thc school and community, high standards of Christian character. In accordance with this, the members made contribu- tions to charitable organizations, sent baskets to needy families at holiday times, helped to entertain veterans at the Veterans' Hospital, and joined in a project of adopting a Greek war orphan by proxy. In the line of recreation, the boys and girls held weiner roasts, sleigh rides, joint meetings, Mother and ,ns , ,av Daughter and Father and Son ban- quets.

For the first time in the school's history the students' newspaper came out every other week. This was a result of the staffs working on a day-by-day basis. The appearance of the Tatler was -improved by head- lines and by-lines, the news coverage was unparalleled, and the tedious job of make-up was eliminated by a new printing process. One of the most important, though perhaps not readily recognized, facts is that the Tatler had at last a complete and effective organization. Everyone was welcomed on the stall' and many people contributed their time and effort to its success. These people not only produced a paper whose entertaining features helped to keep the students and faculty in closer Contact with each other, but gained practical experience in writing, organizing, and working harmoniously with their fellow students.

The en- tire Amard organization voted for the assembly cliairman, George Hurd, and he appointed his committee. The purpose of this committee was to guide and regulate the weekly as- semblies throughout the year. These people worked with Mr. Schellcr and Mr. Cornell in planning the various programs. THE JUNIOR HIGH ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE The Junior High Assembly Com- mittee is a new organization active about Amherst with the specific duty of planning and producing worthwhile programs for the Junior High assem- bly. The outstanding "United Nations Assembly" which the committee pro- duced is proof positive that its work is worthwhile and successful. Mr. Patti helps to advise the group which is under the leadership of Francis Dul- czewski, chairman, Roger Bald, vice- chairman and Sandra Ensminger, sec- retary. TOWER AMARDS ' - I 4.

The Amards, Amherst's dramatic club, was organized on an entirely new basis this year. Membership was opened to the students in the Sopho- more, Junior and Senior classes, who showed active interest in the organiza- tion. Nearly sixty students turned out, which increased the total membership to eighty. The group was then divided into six separate casts of ten to twelve persons in each. One of the casts was responsible for the evening's program at each meeting. Skits, movies and speakers were among the entertain- ment. In this way the meetings were varied and individuals had an oppor- tunity to take part in the actual plan- ning. The Christmas program was han- dled by the Amards and Thespians and revised by Mr. Cornell. The theme "Peace" was portrayed by the traditional Christmas story coupled with the feelings of the world today. Some other projects undertaken by the Amards and Thespians were, three student-directed one-act plays, the St. Patrickls Day assembly and a full pro- d ' 1 ' h t . , Muon p ay m t me as S Fmt fowl Bob Bradley, Judy Diebold, Phyllis Tozier, Donna Reck- seen, Linda Freeman, James Read. Second row: John Heintz, Dor- othy Maratta, Betty Lou Wullen, Ruth Osborne, Joanne Deisig, Ilgloxfrard Jones. Third row: George Hurd, Dave Southwick, Patrick ln eon. The Thespians Society is the National Honorary Dramatic Society, of which Amherst has a newly organized chapter. In order to become a Thespian one must have earned at least ten points by participating in some dramatic activity. The point system has been set-up by the National Chapter, but gives the local director authority to add or 'subtract points on occasions when he sees fit. The purpose of Thespians is to promote and stimulate the growth of worthwhile dramatic activities in Amherst. This society is an inner circle of the Amards, and therefore has no activities of its own, but helps the Amards fulfill their aims.

One of the hardest working groups at Amherst is the Stage Crew. This past year, this group has done the technical work for all the assembly programs, the school plays, the Mikado, and Water Follies. In addition to this, the boys handled the difli- cult job of lighting the gym for all of our school social events. James Read was manager, and Robert Bradley, assistant manager. X Fl? -fl' Jecon fow.. B d fo IJ'-311 UI, Alvinwgrner Zlej ' 'Mr The projection crew, advised by Mr. Schaefer, is composed of a group of boys whose duty it is to assist teachers through the use of audio- visual aids. Throughout the entire year they have run movies in the classrooms. Assembly speakers who used films as part of their pres- entations welcomed the help of the projection crew. Adult education classes, Hi-Y clubs, and church groups are a few of the organizations which have benefited by the very able help of this indispensable group at Amherst.
