As we tread down Life's Main Street, Signals and signs will guide our feet Toward those things we wish To do, To become . . . During the march of progress which has ensued in our country for the past twenty-five years, we have found ourselves becoming increasingly dependent upon others for opinions and ideas. These opinions form tem- porary guidcpos ts which we either ignore or revere. We have surrendered plurselves, helplessly, to the stronger signs to make and influence our CCISIOIIS. Being such an integral part of our day to day life, signs may be ex- pected to play a prominent part in our community living. We have come to depend upon such things as signal lights, store directories, ad- vertisements, and street signs to aid us in all we do. Some of these signs are like a beacon which shines forth in the midst of chaos and confusion. There could be nothing more welcome than a sign which alleviates a type of worry or distress. Others of these signs are less sought, but more com- manding, such as "slow', signs and one-way arrows. These, in the past two decades, have been awarded the admirable task of protecting our nation's safety. ' As we participate in school activities, here at Amherst, we are por- traying ourselves as signs-a method of symbolizing our likes and dis- likes, our hopes and dreams. Our very movements express to others in- formation concerning our habits and lives. Therefore, each student is a necessary portion of Amherst's story to her friends and neighbors. As each of our classmates is a sign-an inspiration to us-so we reflect our- selves to others, throughout our community. We are not attempting to portray each of our school's various adminis- trators, classes, and activities as particular signs, but rather to demon- strate how the duties and aims of each function as a signal, guiding and directing us toward the best attainable goals. 4 4 DEDICATIO Miss Mary D'Amico It is to Miss Mary D'Amico that this year,s senior class would like to dedicate the 1955 Tower. She has, as class adviser., earned her place in each of our hearts by her lmtiring work and faithful service. We sincerely hope that this dedication will long be a reminder to both Miss D'Amico and each senior of the inspiration she has been throughout the years. 5 ........

The ideas merged as the year progressed, thus producing in June, this completed, yearbook. An increase in enrollment has expanded the activities a11d added extra pages and new interest to this issue.

K- ' 25TH NNIVER ARY The history of Amherst Central High School began on May 24, 1929, when Amherst Central High School District No. 1 was organized. This was in response to the need for a high school to serve the growing sub- urban communities of Eggertsville and Snyder. The cornerstone for the beautiful buildings that were to be ACHS, was laid on Washington's Birth- day, February 22, 1930. Classes began on September 28, the same year, although the school was not com- pleted until March 4, 1931, when it was formally dedicated. After three years of operation the first graduating class, numbering 49, was honored on June 25, 1933. By 1935 the classroom space was overcrowded so that plans for expansion had to be readied for quick action. With the help of a 452 federal grant two new wings were attached to the rear of the main structure. In January 1937 the additions were occu- pied. Up to this point, SS122,000,000 had been spent on the buildings, site, and equipment necessary to maintain our modern school. When ACHS reached its tenth birthday in 1940, the student enrollment had increased from 300 to 1000, while the staff had grown from 18 teachers to a total of 43. By 1949 there were 1500 students and 75 faculty members. On Marcl1.15, 1953, a new gym- nasium, and a new music-drama wing were dedicated. The cost of the new facilities was approximately 3i920,000. Looking toward the future, plans were being made to take care of the inevitable day when, even with structural expansion, ACHS could no longer accom- modate efficiently the school children jamming its halls. Enrollment today exceeds 1700 in a structure built to house 1350. Two years ago, the Board of Education, deciding that the best solution was the building of a separate Junior High School, presented a plan to the voters of our community calling for its construction. After some discussion the project for a 1200-pupil school was approved. The scheduled opening of the new school is September 1955. Paralleling the growth of our day school has been the expansion of our ACHS Adult School, function- ing in the evening. Under the able direction of Dr. Carl Minich it has developed into a model program of its type. The story of a school is more than bricks and steel, and more than plaster and paint. It is the tale of countless human experiences that give meaning to the inanimate surroundings. It is the saga of zealous teachers, interested citizens, and cooperating stu- dents. Hence, since we cannot tell each individual story we have merely sketched in the general pattern. Make a pile of the score or more yearbooks of ACHS and you will have a record in pictures and in print of the Amherst Central High School Story . . . but a tale yet to be concluded. Next year there will be another volume to add . . . another Tower to reach even higher than those now in the past. Administration -1- ,gn i MR. PHILIP A. SCHWEICKHARD i l 25TH ANNIVERSARY K just as signs show us the way, our supervising prin- cipal, Mr. Philip Schweickhard, directs our school program at Amherst Central throughout thc year.

Each one of us who is acquainted with him realizes the outstanding qualities which he possesses. Every problem, whether large or small, receives his individual at- tention and trustworthy advice.

BO RD OF Throughout its twenty-five years of history Amherst Central High School has enjoyed the benefits of Board of Education members who have given freely of their time and efforts to build what is considered by many to be one of the most ambitious educational communities in the country. Day and night the halls of Amherst Central are alive with seekers of learning, ranging from the young people in the high school division to the alumni and other adults coming after regular school hours to find satisfaction in the evening school. The understanding by the Board of Education of the many educational needs of our community of Snyder and Eggcrtsville has helped beyond measure to spread the rewards of learning to as large a seg- ment of our community as reasonable costs will allow. The increased complexity of educational demands has resulted in more work for the Board, through numerous extna meetings and executive sessions so that present members are to be congratulated for their unique contributions to the civic worth of our public schools.

To accomplish these goals, counselors try to establish a friendly working rela- tionship between home and school while helping each student to reach worthwhile goals. Over ninety-five percent of the parents take an active part in school plans to assist their youngsters.

It's wonderful, but also a lot of work and a little sad, too. During the first semester, the Seniors were working to make the Tower Bazaar a success. Also, during that term, the Senior Play, "Good Housekeeping," was given. From the proceeds of the play, the Senior Ball, now established as a yearly event, was presented. The theme of the Ball this year was "Silver Bells." We hope that the graduating class of nineteen fifty-five will long be remembered as a both unique and outstanding class.

JU IDRS CLASS HIGHLIGHTS Amherst Central's Class of '56 was a very hard working one, as shown by its participation in our annual maga- zine drive sponsored by the Student Council. This year the Student Council announced that it would givc'S75 to thc Senior High class that sold the greatest amount of magazine subscriptions. The prize was awarded to the Junior Class. The money was contributed to the support of the Junior Class Play which was presented during the month of March. This past spring, the Junior Class honored the Seniors at the Junior Prom. The Prom was a big success with members of both the Junior and Senior classes at- tending. As always, the Prom was an unforgettable affair. i W ! -LAI., mg . . s: nl: ,L-. -'......-:,. SOPHGMORE CLASS HIGHLIGHTS Our tenth grade class elected four up-and-coming Am- herstonians to lead them through the year. Dave Wylie, president, was a spirited leader in consolidating the forces of the class in the Magazine Drive, early in the year. Although the sophomores didn't come out on top, some real spirit was established. Although the planning for the Sophomore Party was time-consuming, the results were enthusiastically re- ceived hy the students. This enthusiasm well portrays the class of '57. ':,..

Back-field: Mack Campbell, Scudder Brown, Harry Eoetzmann, Bob Sturgess. A strong East Aurora team invaded Amherst and triumphed 19-12. On Amherst's first play from scrim- mage, Bob Sturgess ran 75 yards to the East Aurora 10, but a fumble cost the Tigers a touchdown. An- other Amherst fumble was quickly turned into an East Aurora score. In the second quarter Bob Stur- gess bucked over from the three-yard line for a T.D. The run for the extra point was short, and at half- time the score was 13-6, in favor of the visitors. Mack Campbell's three-yard plunge put the Tigers back in contention in the third quarter. A pass from Bruce Schmelzer to Dave Earl set up the scoreg however, East Aurora quickly scored again to insure their victory. The injury jinx hit Amherst again as quarter- back Bruce Schmelzer and linebacker Gordy Myers were sidelined by knee injuries. Schmelzer was thru for the season, while Myers returned to action a few games later. 62 The injury riddled Tigers found the going very rough against West Seneca. After a third period touchdown by Sturgess, West Seneca managed to tie the score on a dazzling reverse, two minutes before the final gun. Amherst was forced to settle for a dis- appointing tie. Before a capacity crowd at Williamsville the win- less Tigers upset previously undefeated Williams- ville by the resounding score of 32-12. Dick Loth started the Amherst scoring by intercepting a Wil- liamsville lateral and racing 37 yards for the score. Moments later, Mack Campbell scored on an 86- yard dash thru the startled Williamsville defense. A Bob Sturgess-to-Dave Earl pass play, covering 28 yards, gave Amherst a 19-0 halftime lead. Nothing could stop Amherst that night, and scores by Scudder Brown and Bob Sturgess enabled Amherst to gain its eighth straight victory over Williamsville football teams. P5 Amherst continued its winning ways by rolling over Frontier, 33-6. Dick Loth ran 27 yards to score after intercepting a Frontier pass. After that, Frontier's defense was shackled by Amhersfs hard- hitting line. Scudder Brown, Bob Sturgess, Harry Goetzmann, and Mack Campbell all scored touch- downs while Sturgess and Campbell ran for the extra points. A 55-yard, second half touchdown march gave Amherst a 7-6 victory over Hamburg in the mud at home field. After Mack Campbell plunged for the touchdown from the three-yard line, Scudder Brown circled right end for the winning point. The out- standing line play by John Sacks, Dick Loth, and Dave Hegg held Hamburg's attack in check. The Tigers kept on winning by blanking highly- ritcd Orchard Park 13-0, in the mud at Amherst. An intercepted Orchard Park pass by Bill "Chico" Catalde set up Amherstis first score. Quarterback Scudder Brown lateraled to Mack Campbell on the split-T, option play for the touchdown. The extra point was scored on the same play giving Amherst a 7-0 halftime lead. The score remained unchanged 'til the fourth quarter when Sturgess plunged over from the three-yard line to insure Amherst's fourth straight triumph. The Amherst gridmen closed their season with a 20-14 victory over a good Lancaster team. A 24- yard Sturgess-to-Earl pass scored the first touch- down with Sturgess bucking over for the extra point. A few minutes later., Harry Goetzmann dashed 70 yards for another touchdown. The jarring block of Dick Radtkc, guard, sprung him loose. Mack Camp- bellis 80-yard run closed out the scoring and gave Amherst a 20-0 halftime lead. Good defensive play high-lighted the second half. At the final gun the igupcilant Tigers carried Coach Marty Kentner off the e . The Tigers scored 123 points as compared to their -opponents, 63. They won their last five games in a row, proving that they could come back after a very slow start. Dave Hegg, center, and Scudder Brown, quarterback, became the first Amherst football players in history to be named to the Division One E.C.I.C. All-Star team. Nine other Amherst players received honorable mention. J. V.

S EASON S UMMARY The 1954 Amherst Varsity Soccer Team finished the season with a league record of 8 wins and 2 losses, good enough for 'second place in the E.C.I.C. Soccer League. Holland finished in first place with a 9 to 1 record. 3 . " A first defeat by Frontier was actually the turning point of the whole season. The Tigers just couldn't get started on the wet, slippery field and Frontier nipped them 4-3. This eventually cost Amherst the championship. After that defeat the Tigers rolled over North Collins, Nichols, Williamsville, and Gow before a jolting 8-0 loss to a good Holland team. The hooters soon got back on their winning ways by winning their last five games., including an 8-4 vic- tory over previously undefeated Holland. This last Holland game was played on a field partially covered with water and ankle-deep in mud. Playing without the services of their captain, Woody Fried- rich, who was ill, the Tigers displayed their real courage as they out-played Holland from start to finish. Only a freak goal and two penalty kicks saved Holland from a shut-out. This victory gave Amherst the distinction of beating every team in the league at least once. 64 The starting line-up consisted of the following: Wings, Bob Spelder and Craig Wratteng Insides, Roger Wilhelm and Captain Woody Fricdrichg Center, Peter Haaseg Halfbacks, Peter Ten Broeck, Paul Schonewolf., and Red Adams, Fullbacks, Archie Dean and Fred Hoeldtkeg and Goalie Bill Powell in the nets. Other outstanding players were Neil Anderson, Denny Trudell, Benny Elliott, and Dick Chappell. Peter Haase, Roger Willielm, and Woody Fried- rich led the Tigers' offense which scored a total of 88 points. The defense was spearheaded by Bill Powell, Archie Dean, Peter Ten Broeck, and Paul Schone- wolf, which combined to ' ' ' ll goals and 2 24 points. hold the opposition to only kicks for the low total of J.V. SOCCER Amherst's 1954 J .V. Soccer Team became the first J .V. team in the school's history to go undefeated.. They won seven of their games and tied one to a good North Collins team. The defense was so good that it limited the opposition to only one goal and one penalty kick for the entire season. A great deal of the tearn's success was due to their excellent coach, Mr. Parr. Outstanding players were Dick Stoesser, Dave Bcrsani, Brad Dunn, John Oehler, Paul Ross, and Goalie Brian Norman. S fe. as . 1 ' - bl -H445 2 , :.

Mya ,ww his 4.-N M The 1954 Cross Country Team experienced a good season this year, losing only to Olean. They won seven out of eight dual meets, dropping a decision to a strong Olean team. Paced by Captain Ted Totman, the team scored an upset win at the East Aurora Invitational Run to highlight the season. The first meet of the year was the Annual Barker Fair Day run. Amherst placed second in a large field, being defeated by Olean. The next week Amherst entered the East Aurora Invitational Run. That day the Tigers were outstanding as they placed men second, fifth, sixth, ninth, and twentieth to win the trophy over a favored Olean seven straight dual meets before Olean defeated them over the Olean course. The Section Six Championships were held at Amherst this year. Amherst played the part of the good host as they finished second, losing only to, you guessed it, Olean. On the basis of their per- formance in this meet, three Amherst runnersg Bill Hopkins, John Gillis, and Tom Cree, qualified to run in the State Finals at Schenectady. In this race Bill Hopkins did an excellent job as he placed thirty-eighth in the whole state. Much of the credit for this fine season is due to the excellent work of Coach Don Munson. The prospects for next year are bright as only team.

VARSITY ASKETB LL TEAM HIGHLIGHTS Amherst Centralis 1954-55 basketball team was one of the finest in the school's history. They became the third team in the 25 year history of the school to go through 18 games unbeaten. Only a defeat by Niagara F alls, in a semi-final play-off game, marred a perfect season. This team will long be remembered for never playing a close game. They won all their regular season games by a margin of at least thirteen points. This great team strength enabled every mem- ber of the team to play in each game. After five weeks of practice the 1954-55 edition of the Amherst Central basketball team took the floor against visiting Cleveland Hill. The Tigers started the season in the right way by rolling over their opponents 71-52. Dick Gernold led the scorers with 22 points followed by Bob Geyer with 19. The start- ing line-up consisted of center: Roger Kobee, right forward: Bob Geyer, left forward: Dick Gernold, right guard: Dick Loth and left guard: Bruce Schmelzer. The Tigers had exceptionally strong reserves this season, in ,T ack Kress, Peter Chudy, and Paul Schone- wolf. West Seneca became the second victim of the Tigers as Roger Kohee poured 19 points through the hoop to lead Amherst to a 78-50 triumph. After con- quering Albion 68-50, Amherst recorded its third J ack Kress Bob Geyer A Dick Loth Dick Gernold Bruce Schmelzer CUR S ARS league win by trouncing Hamburg 58-45 on the Tigers' court. Bob Geyer and Dick Loth led the way with 15 and 12 points, respectively. Bruce Schmelzer, with 17 points, led the bengals to a 65-43 win over Lancaster to close out action before the Christmas holidays. The Tigers resumed action by rolling over East Aurora 75-32 on the Amherst hardwood. Orchard Park became the seventh straight victim of the Am- herst steamroller as they went down to a 69-43 de- feat. Bob Geyer with 18 and Bruce Schmelzer with 16 points paced the winners. Before a record crowd of over 1800 in the Amherst gymnasium, the Tigers gave a real performance as they completely humiliated the Billies from Wil- liamsville 61-33. Amherst's fine guards, Bruce Schmelzer and Dick Loth, scored 13 and 12 points, respectively, to lead the Tigers to their eighth tri- umph. Bruce Schn1elzer's 19 points assisted the Tigers to a 77-49 victory at Cleveland Hill before a full house. Three days later, Dick Gernold scored 19 points, also, to show the way to a 64-39 conquest of Frontier at Blasdell. The Tigers had trouble adjusting to the small court, .but in the second half they got rolling in high gear to insure their tenth straight victory. After the mid-term exams, Amherst traveled to West Seneca seeking revenge for the defeat handed them last year by the Indians. West Seneca threw up a zone defense in hopes of an upset, but the fine shooting of Dick Gernold, Pete Chudy, and Bob Geyer led the Tigers to an easy 81-34 triumph. Geyer with 21 points and Chudy with 20 were the game's high scorers. The following week, Amherst went to Hamburg where they clinched Division 1 of the E.C.1.C. championship by bombing their host 76-60. Hamburg got as close as seven points at the end of the third quarter, but then Bruce Schmelzer and Dick Gernold,who had been benched with four fouls apiece, returned to action to lead the Tigers to their twelfth straight win. Bob Geyer was high for Am- herst with 22 points. Lancaster became the next victim of the rampag- ing Tigers as they fell to an 88-43 defeat. Bruce Schmelzer and Dick Gernold led the way by split- ting 46 points. After scoring 41 points in the first half, the Amherst five went on to a 64-42 triumph over East Aurora. Dick Gernold, getting most of his points on tap-ins and rebounds, was the game's high scorer with 22 points. Bruce Schmelzer chimed in with 14. On February 21, Albion invaded the Amherst Gym. The Tigers promptly added them to their list of vic- tims as they scored a 66-49 victory in a very rough game. Four days later the bengals won their sixteenth straight game by walloping Orchard Park 62-38. The Amherst five held a slight eight point lead at half- time, but they outscored their opponents 20-7 in the third uarter to insure the victory. Bob Geyer and Dick Gernold split 32 for the winners. The tigers prepared for their big game with Wil- liamsville by shooting a blistering 45'ZJ, as they downed Frontier, 78-31, in the Amherst gym. This was the last home game for Seniorsg Bob Geyer, J ack Kress, Dick Loth, Paul Schonewolf, and Bruce Schmelzer. On March fifth, the tigers went to Williamsville with only one thought in mindg an unbeaten season. The tigers, determined and eager, rolled up a 4-1-26 lead at halftime. They cooled off in the second half, but the damage was done as Amherst walked off the floor with a 68-54 win. Bob Geyer led the tigers with a 25 point effort, followed by Dick Gernold with 18. Amherst now faced Niagara Falls in a Section Six, semi-final play-off game at University of Buffalo's Clark Memorial Gym. Niagara Falls had too much height for the Amherst five as they scored a 54-38 victory. The tigers shooting was way off the mark that night, as they shot only 26'Zv as compared to a season's average of 38'Zn. Bob Geyer was high man for the tigers with 12 points. With the exception of the play-off game, the tigers were an offensive minded team. They rolled up a total of 1269 points in 18 games for an average of 70.5 points a game. Junior Dick Gernold led the individual scoring with 300 points, followed by Bob Geyer with 279, and Bruce Schmelzer with 236. These three boys were honored by being placed on the Courier Ex- ress and the Buffalo Evening News all-star teams. Bonorable mention honors were bestowed upon Dick Loth, Roger Kobee, Pete Chudy, and J ack Kress. Much of the credit for this year's team's success goes to Amherst's fine coach, Mr. Hettler. His bas- ketball coaching record of 156 wins and 26 defeats in his 10 years at Amherst is superior to any high school coach in this part of the state. Mr. Hettler should improve on his record next season, with the return of four lettermen, which points to another successful season. Dick Gernold, .lack Kress, Bruce Schmelzer, Bob Geyer Dick Loth, Mr. Hettler, Coach. J.V. BASKETBALL Once again, Mr. Wratten's Junior Varsity team finished the season with a glittering record. This ear's team won 17 games while losing only 1. They won 13 in a row, to extend Mr. Wratten's winning streak to 45 games without a defeat over a span of three years. East Aurora finally broke the streak, however, with a 47-41 victory on their home court. This year's team set a new record by scoring 87 points in a game against Albion. Center Dave Baldwin set two new records, 39 points in one game, and a seasonis total of 419 points for an average of 23.3 pxpints a game. Tom 'erguson, Fred Maehemer, iek Shosho, and John Brunner were the other members of the starting five, with Bruce Fowler, Fred Manske, and Dave Low the first string replacements.

They finished third in Division 1 of the Andrew Beam League. The Jr. Tigers beat Frontier, the third place winner in Division II, and notched a win over Wil- liamsville after a previous defeat to highlight the season. Joe Valenta, the team's high scorer, Steve E Smithey, and Terry Bodewes were the most out- standing performers. .,, f'T --A yr Wa' N fl, A., . is .My . Q , s ,l,. 5 wi I4 7. ' lg .

This shows how close this year's com- petition was. Amherst, defending champion of the Matt Mann League for the past two years, opened the season against Cleveland Hill in their pool. Cleveland Hill emerged Victorious, 36-30, to hand Amherst its first swimming defeat in three years. The Tigers had won 21 in a row previous to this meet. Terry Wilson set a pool record of 1:10.1 in the 100 yard breast stroke. The Tigers handed Williamsville a 36-30 setback the following week in the Amherst tank. Wilson set a league and pool record in the 100 yard breast stroke by covering the distance in 1:09.8. ON 72 BN on C09 new rg 9,193 Q Y A500 e B svn' xx 9 6 WW awp 3. After a three week lay-off due to Christmas vaca- tion the Tigers took measure of Maryvale 36-30 Clarence 51-15, and West Seneca 37-29. In the West Seneca meet Terry Wilson shaved eight tenths of a second off his previous time for the 100 yard breast stroke to set a league record of 1:09. The Cleveland Hill jinx came back to haunt the Tiger mermen as they suffered a 344-32 loss in the losers, pool. Williamsville then preceded to dunk the Tigers, 44-22 in the winners, tank. Ray Johnson, Amherst's 40 yard freestyle ace, suffered his only de- feat of the season in this meet. This win clinched the championship for Williamsville. Amherst rolled over Maryvale and Clarence be- fore dropping a 35-31 decision to West Seneca to end the season. This loss gave the team a 6-4 mark, good enough for third place in the league. The Tigers, al- though they didn't win the championship this year, still have the best overall record in the history of the 1VIatt Manu League. In the three years of its exist- ence, Amherst swimming teams have Won 26 meets, while losing only 44. This certainly reflects the fine coaching abilities of the Tiger mentor, Mr. Tierney. j Qgiq-v' f A e g f, - fr N G. ..l'!

TEAM REVIEW Coach John Gelsinger was greeted with the return of only five lettermen at the start of the 1954-55 sea- son. This made for a year of rebuilding as the inex- perienced grapplers posted a record of 2 wins and 8 losses. After losing to Orchard Park 29-18 and Williams- ville 34-16, the Tigers walloped Clarence 40-8 as Adams, Cederman, Heckman, Hardy and Volgenau won by pins. The grapplers then suffered losses to Hamburg., West Seneca, Orchard Park, and Williams- ville before they defeated Clarence for the second time, 36-15. Hamburg and West Seneca then pro- ceded to hand the Tigers their last two defeats of the season. Co-captain Doug Volgenau remained undefeated in the 178 pound class. He also led the team in scoring with a total of 39 points in 10 matches. He was fol- A lowed by Chuck Cederman, a four-bar winner, with 27 points in 10 matches, Co-captain Red Adams with 16 points in 6 matches, Jerry Tercho with 16 points in 5 matches, and Jim Petrie, with 16 points in 9 matches.

Mack Campbell, Harry Scull, and Dave Earl with '8 points apiece paced the Amherst victory. The Tigers rolled over East Aurora and West Seneca be- fore the all important meet with Hamburg. The Hamburg meet was nip-and-tuck all the way, and when the dust had settled, the scoreboard showed 52 points for each team.

Division 1 title. Although the boys lost a heart-breaking play-off game with Frontier, they finished the season with a glittering record of 14 wins and 3 losses. The Tigers won their first six games before losing a close decision to Frontier. They won five more games before East Aurora gave the A.C.H.S. team a sur- prising 5-1 setback. The boys then won their last Eve games to finish in a tie for first place. In the play-off game Amherst held a 4-1 lead against the visitors until the sixth inning when two booming home runs by Frontier batsmen brought to a close Amherst's 1954 baseball season. The starting line-up occupied these positions: first base, Stan Ziemba alternatin with Bob Linknerg second base, Bill Wrightg third base, Woody Fried- richg short stop, Bill Schwablg catcher, John Schriverg left field, Captain Gary Runckelg center field, Dick Starrg and right field, John Sacks. George Guenth- ner was the workhorse of the pitching staff aided by Bob Spelder, Peter TenBroeck, and Bill Sturgess. Some of the season's high-lights included the following individual accomplishments: Bob Spelder and Pete Ten Broeck struck out six- teen men as A.C.H.S. defeated Depew 14-5. Also in this game Gary Runckel collected a home run, triple, and two singles to pace the Amherst attack. Bill Schwabl7s 3-run homer proved to be the decid- ing factor in Amherst's 3-1 victory over Hamburg. George Guenther, well known as a pitcher, proved his hitting ability in the West Seneca game by hitting a home run, a triple, and two singles. To supplement this he struck out fourteen West Seneca batsmen. The hope for another successful season next year is backed by the return of seven of this year,s letter- men including three of this year's starting infield. .IU N IOR VARSITY SUMMARY The 1954 Junior Varsity baseball team under the guidance of coach Walter Newman finished the season with a record of 8 wins and 5 losses. This was an excellent record considering that 3 of these 5 losses were by a 1 run margin. The Junior Tigers scored double victories over Orchard Park, Williamsville, and East Aurora. They split games with both Hamburg and Depew. Pete Schmitt, Craig Wratten, Sid Hulse, Don Flaig, and Denny Trudell, who gained 3 wins, composed the pitching staff. Rick DuBois and Bob Noon, batting .500 and .470 respectively, were the power in the Junior Tiger's offense which scored an amazing total of 105 runs. The boys proved that they could win when the pressure was on by defeating Hamburg 3-2 and East Aurora 7-6 in two very close games. J.V. R - Us 855.1 Y' i1'V?'

They also set a school record of 1337 against Williamsville, although the tigers lost the match as Williamsville set a league record of 1344.

SEASON IN REVIEW The Amherst netmen completed their 19541 season with a perfect record of 12 wins and no defeats, taking first place in Division I of the E.C.I.C. Hav- ing won 55 of a possible 60 points they became the first undefeated tennis team in Amherst's history. A good deal of this credit goes to coach Robert Parr who has been building this championship team for two years. The starting singles were composed of seniors: Micky Graver funde- featedj, Chuck Specht, Sig Dietrich Cundefcatedj, and John Filsinger. The first doubles team was composed of Paul Sehonewolf and Dick Chappell: Chuck Spccht won the league tournament second singles championship while Mickey Graver took the Section VI AAA singles crown. i . ,, Q Iii i M " ii -dt . .., , ,.-.,,.4..--f 1 - --we-'H-'W H s 1 4 , -5,...,, e.s.f:---r-.- -1-1 - W GIRL ' SPORTS HOCKEY The hockey team, which consisted of girls in grades 10-12, was coached this year under the able super- vision of Mrs. Husband. Two teams, a varsity and a junior varsity team, were formed. These two teams practiced diligently and they ended the seaso11 with a game against Park School. The varsity team, cap- tained by Russie Tighe, lost 9-10. The junior varsity team whose captain was Maryann Powell was also defeated 3-0 by Park School. BOWLING This year bowling was divided into two groups, a Junior and Senior group and a Freshman and Sopho- more group. The girls, met at the King Pin Alleys, under the guidance of Miss Gruener and Miss Kreh- biel. The outstanding bowlers and high scorers were Grace Seitz and Sue Haas. This proved to be both fun and good experience for the girls who participated. SOCCER Under the guidance of Miss Krehbiel intramural soccer was enjoyed by all the girls in grades 9-12 who participated. The winners of the elimination tourna- ment were the "Tigerettes,"' a Senior team. The weather permitted only two interscholastic games to be played, both with Park School. The first game was played to a 1-1 tie, when in the second quarter Judy Pelson scored a penalty kick for Am- herst. The second game was won by Amherst 4--0, whim Pat Kenslea and Carole Adams each scored one 893 - ARCHERY Although weather conditions this fall were not ideal for archery, there was a large turnout by the 9th and 10th grade girls. The girls, sponsored by Mrs. Olson, were invited by Kenmore to play in a tournament, but because of bad weather the event was cancelled. The group, which is composed of beginners and in- termediates, anticipates next fall and possible tour- IIHIIICIITS. BASKETBALL The girls' basketball tealns enjoyed a successful sea- son under the supervision of Miss Krehbiel. Girls in grades I0-12 participated in an intramural tourna- ment. To highlight the basketball season a team of ten girls was chosen by the girls' basketball referees to represent Amherst in a round-robin invitational tournament at Park School on February 5. In the first two games Amherst lost to the Buffalo Seminary 7-5 and to Park School 9-2. In the last two games Amherst edged Cleveland Hill 7-5 and our traditional rival, Williamsville, 9-5. This team again played Park School at Amherst on February 23. The outstanding forwards were Russie Tighe, Beverly Lown, and Judy Pelson. The outstanding guards were Marcia Laeke, Sue Haas, and Barbara Randall. VOLLEYBALL The number of girls who participated in volleyball was not many but those who did enjoyed the time spent. The girls were divided into two teams which played volleyball once a week under the direction of Mrs. Husband. BADMINTON This year the girls who took part in the badminton tournament had the use of the boys' gym. The doubles elimination tournament was played over a period of six weeks. The players were permitted to choose their own partners and enjoyed the competi- tive spirit of this game. Miss Krehbiel and Mrs. Olson were in charge of this tournament. SOFTBALL Softball was played last spring under the guidance of Mrs. Husband. The softball umpires and the out- standing players from each team were selected to play Park School. ft! Girls gym class in action SWIMMING TEAM The swimming team was made up of girls who were interested in and who enjoyed competitive swim- ming. Under the direction of Mrs. Husband, two teams were formed, a junior varsity captained by Sally Manske, and made up of freshmen, and a var- sity team composed of sophomores, juniors, and seniors whose captain was Russic Tighe. On February 22, the girls swam against Clarence and Kenmore. The outstanding swimmers were Barbara Randall, Anne Wells, and Peggy Davis. From this team the "twelve best" swimmers were selected to participate in the grand finale of the an- nual Senior High Water Follies. SPOTLIGHTING SPORTS The girls who are interested in any athletic activity are indeed :fortunate to have such excellent facilities such as the girls' own gym, a swimming pool, and large quantities of athletic equipment. They are also fortunate to have such co-operative, hardworking, and interested advisers. Sports are very necessary to round out anyone's character and personality. They give a person a com- petitive spirit, a definite responsibility, and a feeling ol good sportsmanship and teamwork. At Amherst there is a keen sense of responsibility towards any activity one may undertake. This is proven by the fact that girls who sign up for a cer- tain sport are sure to participate in it. The sports are divided into the seasons of the year so that there is only one sport being offered at a time. This gives a person an opportunity to participate in other ac- tivities outside of athletics. Sports can also influence friendships. They offer an excellent way to become better acquainted with a teacher or a team-mate. asa ,Q s.- X . 1 ."x..i 83 First Row: Carole Adams, Joan Nicholson, Connie Mannes, Jud Pelson, Phyl- lis Goga, Jane Bellinger, Jackie Schultz, Nancy Monfuletho.

GIRLS' SPORTS CQLINCIL As .Amherst increased in enrollment, there was also a substantial increase in the number of repre- sentatives in the Girls' Sports Council. This year there were 36 representatives, two from each girls' homeroom of grades 9-12. The duties of the repre- sentatives are to keep an accurate record of the points earned by each girl in the homeroom who participated in sports. The Sports Council man- ages the various girls' athletic activities under the supervision of Miss Carolyn Krehbiel, Mrs. Mag- dalene Olson, and Mrs. Isabel Husband. This year the main function of the Girls' Sports Council was to sponsor the annual Junior and Senior High Water Follies. The proceeds raised were used as scholarships, which were given to outstanding senior girls. These scholarships were given in memory of Alice Buerger and Betty Aokley. The Council also gave an award to the "all-around" girl of the senior class. Top: Mrs. Isabel Husband, Left, Miss Carolyn Krehbielg Right. Mrs. Magdalene Olson. A banquet was given in late spring and the girls who had earned letters, received them. The orange and black felt letters were given on the following basis-a large letter was worth a total 75 points, a medium-sized letter, 50 points, and a small letter, 35 points. At this banquet the president and vice-president were announced for the follow- ing year. The officers for 1954-55 were President, Phyllis Gogag Vice-President, Judy Pelsong Treas- urer, Connie Mannesg and Secretary, Jane Bel- linger. , .3- .iii-1-fl A','j5""5V 8' J ,ff ?' , v-I , at - ,xi V ll' .

Cheerleaders were introduced for the first time this year after a series of tryouts held for girls in the ninth and tenth grades. Juniors Gail Stillwell and Margie McDonnell and Sophomores Paula Parker, Joanie Nicholson, Lynda Hopkins, and Eileen O"Connor were selected. They held regular practices with t Varsity Cheerleaders under the guidance of "Doon Pankow, a also assisted with the "Football Frolicf' Cheering at the hoi J.V. football games and all of the J.V. basketball games, thc enthusiastic girls have helped promote a great deal of school spir 90 'E i X xv :X o W .

Sue Graf, Carol Lock, Sandra CHEERLEADERS Amherst can certainly be proud of this year's sparkling group of cheer- leaders. They are an indispensable part of every basketball and football game. Whether we are winning or losing, they always possess a smile which expresses their unceasing spirit. With a season lasting the en- tire year, these girls constantly prac- tice and originate new cheers. This year Gail Hirsch and Connie Mannes were back from last year's squad with newcomers Sandra Ens- minger, Carol Lock, and Sue Graf. The person responsible for the ter- rific coaching job was "Doc" Pan- kow. With his assistance they pre- sented their annual "Football Frolic" held the night following the first football game. Tryouts were held in February for the cheerleaders of '56. "Doc" Pankow 23 MUSIC A MHER T Already well established in its field, Amherst Cen- tral's music department continued its excellent prog- ress in the 1954-1955 school year. The Marching Band's appearances were more spec- tacular than ever this year with the addition of the Tigerettes. The half-time shows were greatly ap- preciated and added a collegiate note to the Amherst atmosphere. The Tigerettes and Majorettes were in their glory in the performance at the Williamsville game. They showed true spirit as they went through their routines in attire appropriate for the occasion if not for the bleak weather. Mr. Kresticis grade six Senior Band worked through some difficult numbers to maintain its su- perior standing for another year. The trip to Toronto to participate in an International Festival was a high point in its year. Senior Band played for school assembly programs and gave its annual public con- cert. As could bc expected, the group was outstand- ing in the Spring Music Festival. Although the limited treasury of the Senior Orches- tra confined thc group to less unusual activities than an Oberlin trip, its musicians were kept busy. The grade schools were entertained in the fall and junior and senior assemblies presented the orchestra. Junior and Senior Orchestras combined to present a public concert at the school on January ninth. Annette Fraustino was piano soloist in Mendelssohn"s "Ca- pricfflo Brilliantef' The performance was followed by an informal tea for parents and friends. Both Mr. Kaza and Mr. Krestic are building up iine personnel in the Junior Orchestra and Junior Band respectively. Both groups took short trips to meet the public and played for area students and in the Spring Festival. Popularity of the musical organizations has pro- duced such huge memberships as 190 in the seventh and eighth grade girls' glee club. They have sung for assemblies at Amherst and in the grade schools, en- tertained at the Old Folks' Home at Wende and par- ticipated in Spring Festival. Newcomers to the school, these singers have already absorbed the prevailing atmosphere of interest in good music and show the skill of Mrs. Schermerhornis training. From such early beginnings as this group and the Junior High Boys' Glee Club which distinguished itself in Chicago last spring, have come the more ex- perienced singers of the Ninth Grade Choir, Senior Mixed Choir and the Senior A Cappella Choir. Under Mr. 1lcitz's talented direction, these groups sing for assembly programs and respond to outside requests. Special programs have been sung by the A Cappella Choir for the American Education Week program and the Goodwill Industries Christmas entertain- ment. Sigmund Rombergis "New Moon" was selected as the year's main production by tl1e vocal department. Work on individual and chorus parts began in the late fall and intensive rehearsals in orchestral and staging work commenced after Christmas. In outside functions, the Amherst music depart- ment has been represented by small groups and indi- viduals. Amherst students played in All-State sec- tionals in Arcade, Fredonia, and Penn Yan and par- ticipated in tl1e work shops sponsored by the Uni- versity of Buffalo and the Buffalo Philharmonic Or- chestra. All-State, at Rochester this year, was at- tended by Lola Skidmore and Dave Hegg, from the Chorus, Dave Fogg, from Senior Bandg and Sandra Wendt and Gordon F ricke., from Senior Orchestra.

Four of the five girls, Judy Larwood, Sylvia Dean, both com- pleting three years of twirling, Aileen Conley, Diane Dobbins, their second year, will be graduating this June, thus leaving Nlaryanne Powell to carry on next ear. y The flag twirlers, Doris Dickerson and Sally Sprague, have been breaking in new girls to take their places next year. All of these are chosen on the basis of marching and twirling ability and poise. The year opened with a new lighted baton routine displayed in complete darkness at the half time show of the Amherst-Wihiamsville game. Following this the girls appeared in an international baton twirling con- test, the annual music festival and the P.T.A. Variety Show. Also significant this year were the orange and black streamers the girls featured at the closing football gam against Lancaster. 100 tk.

The first group of thirteen members ably carried the responsibility of the Honor Society until December 17 when the next 10'Z7 of the senior class was inducted. Using a new system, 10929 of the senior class be- came members in December and 10'Z7 of the junior class in late spring. The change in the distribution of inductees for the year was made to give the third .5123 of seniors a part in the Society's activi- ties and to enlarge the first group of juniors in order to lighten the load at the beginning of the following year. The compilation of a scholarship file for the ready reference of any student was a real service to the school. This file holds information on most of the scholarships offered by colleges throughout the country. From the profits of the Honor Society store, six scholarships were planned. These scholarships were awarded to students for outstanding scholar- ship, character, service, and leadership. Two plaques were awarded to homerooms-one for the largest per cent of honor roll students, and one for the greatest increase in names on the honor roll. Mr. Sehuchardt had the position of adviser and general supervisor. The elected officers were president, Frank Knox, vice-president, Bill Powell, secretary-treasurer, Sally Spragueg store manager, Dave I-Ieggg store bookkeeper, Ann Osborn.

LIBRARY CLUB An increased membership of the Library Serv- ice Club has been invaluable during the past school year. These thirty-five boys and girls under the supervision of Miss Carter worked as assistants in the library, acting in many ways much the same as a professional librar- ian, helping the students and managing the library. Meetings of this organization were held monthly for the planning of such activities as Book Week, special Christmas and Easter ex- hibits, and a Christmas party. For many members this type of work has proved to be the incentive for library service as a vocation. TRIAD Triad, under the direction of Miss Waldow, is the literary magazine of Amherst. All material, which includes poems, essays and short stories, is contributed by the stu- dents, each class being repre- sented. This year co-editors Mar- sha Soldineer and Barbara Har- vey, along with the rest of the staif, aimed for an earlier publi- cation date so that students could have their Triads in April.

Hi-Y's have grown tremendously this year and because of this fact fifteen clubs were organized totaling more than 400 students. The clubs aim toward having one recreational, educational, religious and business meeting each month. Speak- ers, movies, panel discussions, and visits to differ- ent churches give them a broader understanding of the various religious denominations. Social side- lights include square dances, parties, gym nights, splash parties, and picnics with Hi-Y Clubs from other schools. Field trips were taken to the Good- will Industries, the Museum of Science, and the Courier-Express, which proved both interesting and educational. The purpose of Hi-Y is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the home, school, and com- munity, high standards of Christian character. World Service was selected as this year's project and to support this the clubs collected clothing for the children's relief in foreign countries, conducted a Hallowe'en party for the children in the Meth- odist Home for Children, and fixed Thanksgiving baskets for needy families. ,Ji ZETA CHAPTER '-'E' Q at Q., 1 DELTA RHO CHAPTER First Row: Bill Brunskill, Doug McLernon, Bryan Werner, Heath West, Bruce Evanson.

Anyone ever asking what the dramatic organiza- tion of A.C.I-I.S. was, would get the answer, "Why Amards and Thespians, of course!" Membership in the Amards is open to all senior high studentsg however, the membership in the Thespians is restricted to those students who have earned a total of ten points. These points are accessible by working on committees, directing plays, or acting. Meetings of these organizations were headed by Mr. Klayman, the faculty adviser, who was aided by Joan Stuff, presidentg Barbara Thomas, vice- president, Janis Valenta, seeretaryg Art Baus, treasurerg and Martha Radley, historian. During the year such activities as make-up lessons, cl1a- rades, and speakers, constituted these meetings.

Much of their work is carried on after 3:15 for their commitments in- clude both plays and musicals as well as school assemblies. Various organizations also ask the stage crew for assistance in lighting for their dances and the building and painting of scenery, for each production requires many hours of after- school work. Under the capable leadership of Bill Daniels, manager, Tony Culver, assistant manager, and Art Baus, treasurer, this efficient group has given their time and efforts to a most worthy service. STAGE CREW Seated: Bill Daniels, Tony Cul- ver. Slanding: Barry Burrows, Dave McGill, Art Baus, Jim Boa, Dave Orcutt, Dick Drex- ilius, Peter Achey, Wally Gan- ICF. U ll8 PROJECTION CREW Many of our organizations in the community are dependent upon the services supplied by Am- herst's Projection Crew. Hi-Yis, Adult Education, Scouts, youth groups, and church organizations are all in the same way indebted to tl1em. These industrious boys, supervised by Mr. Schaefer, are directly responsible for such apparatus as films, tape recorders, record players and slide machines. This past year the group has been training the nucleus for a Junior High crew to assist in many of the endless jobs. JUNIOR HIGH ART CLUB Mrs. Bang sponsored and directed an en- thusiastic group of Junior High Art students in club activities. This group met each Wednesdayf after school in room 315 to carry out interesting project plans. Working with ceramics and wire sculpture were new experiences for some.
