THE GOLD BUG
THE SENIOR CLASS
AMHERST HIGH SCHGOL
The Class of 1918 respectfully dedicates
this book to Miss Carolille A. Marsh and
Mr. Charles W. Marshall.
This is the pioneer issue of The GOLD BUG. It is also
the pioneer class book of A. H. S. There have been no precedents
to follow, no opportunities to profit by the experience of others.
We have had to blaze the trail. ' 1 y
The one hope throughout Was of producing a class book of
which A. H. S. and 1918 could be proud. Whether or not We
have succeeded remains to be seen. If our readers are satisfied,
we have succeeded, and if we have succeeded We are satisfied.
Owing to greatly increased costs of publishing, We have
had to make The GOLD BUG smaller than We should have liked,
omitting features which were highly desirable, because We could
not afford the space they required. Q
This is the class book of 1918, not a school annual, and we
have had to confine our pages almost exclusively to things per-
taining to 1918. eMany things, themselves interesting, have there-
fore been omitted to make room for more timely bits. i
1 It is with the deepest regret that We had to omit pictures
of the athletic teams, but we could not afford to insert them. s
In closing, We Wish to thank the Olass for the Whole-
hearted Way in which they have stood behind us, and to assure
them that their support has been most deeply appreciated. With-
out their undivided support there could have been no GOLD BUG.
VVe have tried our best to make The GOLD BUG Worth While,
We hope We have not tried in vain.-
t THE Enrrons.
MR. C. W. MARSHALL
The Old Building is gone now, and so is Mr. Marshall who
held sway therein. The Old Building has been torn down, Mr.
Marshall has moved away. -
An overgrown red house. Holes in the floor. Cracks in
the walls. Rats. Roll them into one and you have the Old
Kindness. Firmness. Generosity. Friendliness. Human-
ness. Tiikeability. Roll them into one and you have Mr. Marshall.
For every defect or inconvenience in the Old Building,
there Was a counterbalance. 'We didn't object to being forced to
use the Assembly Hall as our home room during the Freshman
year. That was an honor.
Architecturally, the Old Building was not beautiful. Still,
it had an air of old fashioned nobility and d.ignity. This air of
dignity was a great aid to mental effort, as testified by the super-
excellent Work We did there.
Mr. Marshall, HCharlie," was one of our most popular in-
structors. Everyone liked him, and he reciprocated. Never angry
at our breaks and slips, by his understanding and fatherliness he
guided us along the first steps of our High School careers, and it
is with the greatest satisfaction that we call to mind the joyful
days spent in the Old Building.

MR. F. T. WINGATE
Amherst is justly proud of hor New High School. Not only
is it one of the most beautiful buildings of this college town, but
also one of the most modern.
Built in 1915-16, at a cost of S115,000, to replace the Old
Building, it was furnished with an eye towards remedying the
inconveniences caused by lack of equipment in the other building.
Wlhereas the Old High School could cater only to the college pre-
paratory student, the New High School can attend not only to
the college prep, but also to the commercial and scientific course
The equipment of the New Building contains a large
assembly hall, well-furnished chemistry and physics laboratories,
manual training, domestic science a.nd typewriting rooms. The
interior color scheme is one of great beauty and simplicity.
The New Building was opened in 1916. Witli its opening
came Mr. WrVingate, the principal. Although here but two years,
Mr. WVingate has made himself felt by his efforts to make
A. H. S. a top notch school. Busy as he is, he always has time to
take an interest in student activities, and through this interest
those activities have benefited.

Our first superintendent was Mr. A. L. Hardy, and We
always connect him with the thoughts of our grammar school
days. In September, 1915, Mr. Hardy resigned his position as
superintendent of Amherst 's schools, bringing to a close his long
service of sixteen years. What he did built itself into the lives
of the pupils, for Whom he Worked with sympa.thy, devotion and
high ideals. Mr. Hardy has every reason to feel that his Work
was Well Wrought and that he has Won great praise from both the
citizens and the pupils of Amherst.
Our next superintendent, Mr. Carroll R. Reed, though he
remained With. us but a short time, will long be remembered.
After about a year's service, Mr. Reed left us to accept the super-
intendency of schools in Rockford, Ill. Although his leaving was
a source of regret to us, yet what was our loss was another's gain.
His successor, Mr. John D. Brooks, came to us .from
Gloucester, Mass., with the desire of making our schools better by
seeking to perpetuate all that was proven good. Although with
dusbut a short time, he is greatly admired and respected. He is
a most interesting speaker, and is an active Worker in the school
1918 Wishes -him the best of success and happiness.

!4Farewell, old school!" The laggards cry,

VVe!ll pass your well-worn entrance by,
And not return, no more than they
Wlio went before." 'Tis as a knell
To those who hear, f'Old school, farewell!"
'!Grood-bye, old school!" the athletes yell,
HVVe fought for you on field. and track.
'We won your lights, you know how well,
And brought your gleaming trophies back.
Endless your fame while yet men vie
In feats of strength. Old school, good-byel'
Mlllarewell, old school!" the jokers grin,
4'Our pranks will live when we are gone.
VVe've played our tricks, and, oh, how thin
The cpe-rsonals,' and how forlorn,
VVithout our deeds, the teacher's lot.
Farewell, old school !-but not forgot."
"fAdieu, old school!" the crammers sigh,
HVVe've burned the midnight oil in Vain,
That you might hold your standard high,
lN7e'Ve toiled and drudged and toiled again
To wear the pin bestowed by you
And reap reward. Old school, adieu!"
'!Farewell, old school!" her children say,
Hlfllarewell, farewell, but not good-bye,
For not far distant be the day
VVhen loyal hearts where faith runs high
Return to thee, old tales to tell,
Old songs to sing. Dear school, farewell!"

Our Class now numbers but fifty-four, and of that number
not more than half were with us in our Freshman year. Of all
those with us in our Freshman year, not more than half remain.
Each year the Class has been changed, bytmembers moving
away and new members taking their places, until we now are
almost anew class, rather than a continuation of the class we were
Many of our former friends have moved away. Some we
a.re able to trace, some have completely passed out of our lives.
This list of our former members has been made as accurate as
the utmost carefulness could make it, and if errors or omissions
have occurred, we are heartily sorry.

'Twas on a bright and sunny day, early in September, that
we made our bow to Mr. Marshall and the old High School. We
fear it was a rather awed and timid salutation and we know for
certain that we wasted no time in hustling up those memorable
front stairs, into the ancient assembly room, which at the time
looked vast enough to swallow us all. After our several bows
and ties had been settled, we plucked up courage to look around.
Complete segregation was there, just as in the days of old. But
on our sweet and childish faces .could already be seen the ear-
marks of the originality, brains and pep that distinguish us from
the rest of the classes of the High School today. T
The first event in which we as a class were interested was
that little affair between the Freshmen and Sophomores, in which
each tried to put the other down the ravine back of the building.
Headed by "East" Eastman, HLeaguer" Lewis and '4Bob7'
Collins, we showed plenty of punch and pluck, as the Sophomores
Next, Mr. Marshall very kindly selected a pin committee
for us, consisting of Hildegarde Churchill, Margaret Gallinger,
Marion Thompson, Charles Burnett, Stannard Baker and Edward
Lewis. The pin selected has proved very satisfactory, at least,
to those who still have them.
As the year went on we gained assurance slowly but surely,
and our greenness took on a less vivid hue. VVe ceased to look
cross-eyed at the upper classmen, and even took courage to discuss
with the Sophs our right to a third, at least, of the back stairs.

WHEN WE WERE SOPHS
NVe gave many eloquent declamations in rhetoricals, and in the
spring we had proved ourselves so competent, that we were
allowed to give an English exhibition. The exhibition was a
great success, but far more important was the stunt done after--T
wards. A minute space on the floor was cleared, someone honored
us on the piano, refreshments were to be had for those desiring
them, and the first social of the Amherst High School was in full
swing. lVho said we weren't original? Then, too, it was during
our first year that The Graphic was started. Of course they
couldn't -start before. . L

The next year we had no rickety stairs to climb, thereby
allowing us just so much more time to get to school and twice as
much pep after we got there. NVithout a doubt, we were just as
cocky as Sophomores ever were, and, true to the habit of Sopho-
mores, we never happened to see the Freshmen. There was also
a marked falling off in the ranks of Latin students that year. It
would seem that some of us were even then aspiring for a
diploma. Then, too, some adventurous Seniors flooded the Lab.
above us, to see whether it would hold water, and incidentally
soaked us out of our habitat. CNOTE: It didn't.j The damp-
ness ensuing may have had some effect on the minds of those
same Latin students. M
During the winter we became more ambitious and had
tryouts for a class debating team. The team was duly chosen
and we enjoyed a real debate with the Juniors. The only thing
that wasn't comprehensible to our young minds was the fact that
the judges awarded the contest to the Juniors. Knowing us, you
know that we accepted our defeat gracefully. Being before-
handed, we also chose our play committee that year, thereby
making sure that we got the best play possible for our money.
At the close of a very lively year we said a fond farewell to our
friend and teacher, Mr. Marshall, and to the Old Building.
A Edward Lewis, J. Stannard Baker, Margaret Dickinson.
Junior year was exciting from the very beginning and
reached its climax with the all-important Junior Play. We
showed a most peculiar and unnatural desire to get back to school
thatifall. Gould you blame us? WVe were now upperclassmen,
and in the New Building, with Mr. Wingate, and our many
friends among the teachers, we could well expect our last two
years to be the most interesting. As Juniors we saw many inno-H
vations, the lunch counter, new courses, socials and entertain'-
ments. Four of our members gave their services to the Student
Council, then in its first year, and we gave sure proof of our speedy
brain power when we carried off thirteen Pro Merito pins. On
the 22nd and the 23rd of March, we presented our Junior Play,
HShe Stoops to Gonquerw. The performance was worthy of our
reputation, and we not only cleared a neat little sum for the
Seniors? big dance, but we paid for half of a very necessary curtain
for our auditorium stage.
Wfe ended the year with a picnic for the Seniors who were
soon to leave us. Old grievances were forgotten and when at
'commencement time we saw them go out in a blaze of glory, we
shed some heartfelt tears, for we knew that no longer would the
plea that we were not Seniors help us out of our scrapes.
J. Stannard Baker, Henry Toole, Margaret Dickinson.
Senior year has been packed to the brim, and our race in
high school is almost run. We have, of course, taken the lead,
and The Graphic, Girls' Club, and Athletic Association have felt
the stimulus of our efforts. VVe have helped to organize a .French
Club and the course in Military Training, we have said good-by
to some of our members and have welcomed others, originated
the first class book and a new graduation costume, and have
walked off with the Girls' Gym Exhibition cup.
Only a few weeks more and we shall be gone forever. VVe
know that we leave a lot of friends, and, we hope, no enemies,
and we wish the other classes the best of luck in all they may
attempt. May they profit by our mistakes, and, perhaps, if they
live long enough, even rival our accomplishments.

We, the limbs and members of the Class of 1918, of the
Amherst High School, being sane and sober, despite our high
spirits, do hereby give and bequeath all our earthly Cand moth
catenj property, to wit, namely:
To our esteemed and worthy president, a half portion of the
Babbling Brooks' fussing ability. Only a half portion, for, a push
toward the prize is sufficient.
To our close listed and miserly treasurer, all debts unduly
contracted., sum large, sum small, that she may lay up treasure in
Upon our Moon we bestow the metric companionship of our
star prima-donna, that she may keep him company in the Great
White Way of fame. A
Between our HRose of perfection" and our Hpretty baby",
than whom a sweeter woman ne'er drew breath, we would suggest
a mutual exchange of social poise for avoirdupois.
To our beloved principal we hereby donate all new and
original excuses for tardiness.
Amherst High-what shall we bequeath to you? Our
spirits? N ever. We shall need them. Our ambitions? We must
have them. So we leave to you those childish things, which we
have come to realize as unworthy of our dignity.
To this will and Testament we do hereby set our hand and
seal, on this, the first day of April in the year of our Lord
the 1918th, and of our sojourn in this institute, the fourth.
The Class of 1918, Amherst High School.

Q' The class of 1918 made its debut into the field of athletics
. on the day it entered school. The team was formed on the com-
1 mon and came down to the school en masse. The Sophs were ready
l -you know the rest, how- we jammed and pushed and panted and
lost our breath, buttons and temper, how 1918 was always on the
y up-hill side, and how after a week or so the feud all died down.
1 Football was always a leading sport in the high school, and
we have had some good men on the team. Collins, perhaps, is
foremost among them, not because of his spectacular playing, but
because of his steady work. He played all four years and has
probably been in more high school games than any other man in
r the school. Paige and Brooks, too, are strong football men. Paige
played four years and Brooks played the one year that he was with
us. Chiyesa Eastman while he was in our class was a winner
, in football and we lost a good man when he left.
, t'Leaguer" Lewis is our best man in baseball and has done
, much to make that sport successful in Amherst High School. Toole
1 also must be named as one of our strong men in baseball.
T Hockey is a dead sport in this school. WVhile it thrived
we were well represented by Toole, Kenney, Garvey, and Busch.
5 Basketball is one of the most popularand best supported
1 games that we play. Collins and Kenney have played from the
first and our class can be proud of the record they have made.
Walsh and Burnett represent our class on the swimming
team. Merton Perry was our foremost swimmer.
The girls, too, had a basketball team in the season of 1916-
1917. Mary Dudley, Margaret Callinger, Rose Honnay, Helen
Johnson, Catherine J oy, . Ellen Maher, Elizabeth McNair, and
Beryl Shaw represented our class.

The Olass of 1918 has produced the iirst GOLD BUG. It
was decided to have a class book in place of class pictures, as the
latter were too costly. An investigating committee reported that
a book could be produced at a reasonable price, and the Olass took
action by electing a Board of Editors to put out the book.
The GOLD BUG is now a reality. 1918 has put it over.
Wlith a very small edition, The GOLD BUG has been put out at a
reasonable cost. lt is the last achievement of the Olass, a class
noted for its achievements.

The 1918 staff Was smaller than has been the custom, the
Work being in the hands of iive instead of nine or ten. The reason
Was that it was thought that in a large staff each one has too little
to do to keep up interest. Although not exactly a member of the
staff, Miss Nash did much to make The Graphic a success.
VVhether her title be that of Faculty Adviser or Censor, she de--
serves Honorable Mention if not Highest Award.
The Graphic as a school institution was designed to keep an
available record of school events, to provide an outlet for the wit
of the school, and to be the Hgoat" for aspiring young authors and
authoresses. lVhether or not it accomplishes its mission may best
be judged by its readers.
THE GIRLS' CLUB
President, Esther Waugli, '18.
Vice Prcsvlclcwt, Susan Paige, '19,
Treasurer, Mildred Burnett, '2O.
Secretary, - Hope Goodwin, '21.
The purpose of the Girls' Club is to bring the girls of the
school into a closer understanding with themselves and with their
teachers and to promote acquaintances.
Started in 1999 by Elizabeth Howleng, one of the girls, and
two teachers, it has flourished ever since. Besides fuliilling its
primary object, the Club is instrumental in furthering any causes
likely to be advantageous to the girls. By means of its meetings
and hikes, which are always well attended, the Club does this.
One of the school institutions is the Girls' Club Social, for
which the girls invite the boys, instead of the customary Way. -
The Club has long been influential in the school, and that it
may continue to be so is the Wish of all who are acquainted with it.
J UN IOP, PLAY.
, For our Junior Play, given March twenty-second and
twenty-third of our junior year, Oliver Goldsmith's UShe Stoops
to Conquern was chosen. The play, based on an incident from
the author 's own life, deals with a traveler who believes the house
where he is spending the night is an inn, while in reality it belongs
to the family which he intends to visit, and, because of his not
being acquainted with the family, many embarrassing complica-
tions arise but in the end all Ulive happily ever after".
' .The cast was chosen by tryouts and coached by Mr. Bow-
man of Amherst College and Miss Allen. It was hard to give
such a play, for scenery, footlights, and at curtain had to be pro-
vided for the new high school auditorium, the better part of the
funds for which had to come from the proceeds of the play. This
was the first Junior Play given in the new high school, the iirst in
costume, the :first given two nights, and the iirst with reserved
seats. Howard Paige served as business manager and St-annard
Baker as stage manager.

During the past seven years Amherst High School has had
a Musical Club, its success depending upon the support and co-
operation of the students.
The club this year, under the management of Chester Ken-
ney, has been most fortunate in having with it Miss WVhittemore,
one time a member of the Mt. Holyoke Mandolin Club, Who has
greatly contributed to its success.
The club has played fifteen engagements this year, and has
had the best season since its starting. May its future be still more

The Glass of 1918 has published a class book, The GOLD
BUG. Being the iirst class in old Amherst High School to have
undertaken such a task, we have made our share of mistakes, and
we now look wisely back upon our inexperienced days. With the
realization that many coming classes will doubtless follow in our
footsteps, we wish to shield them from our mistakes. Let them
profit by our experience. So, with that in mind, we will give a
few suggestions on how to run a class book.
T In the first place, dear followers, begin early, very early.
It will be well. to decide in your Junior year whether you arelgoing
to have a class book or not. If so, elect your board of editors as
early in your Senior year as possible. This is a necessary evil that
cannot be escaped.. Don7t wait, as we did, until the last of
L The Editor-in-Chief, being duly elected, should immediately
get to work and sic the. business manager on the trail of photo-
graphers, engravers and printers. In order to get a business man-
ager to do all this, a meeting of the editorial board must be called
and a business manager chosen. It is well at this time to pick a
publicity manager, clerk and any other special editors you may
feel like wanting.
You 'll have to make several changes in plans. . ,We had de-
cided upon buff paper and green ink, but had to abandon the
scheme because buff paper doesn't take cuts well.
Don't bother with advertisements, for, on account of your
small circulation, you will not get as much per page for an ad as
you must pay to have it printed.
r Get all your money in before you sign any contracts calling
These bits of advice have been compiled by the Noble Sec-
retary Qofficially, the clerkl of The GOLD BUG and have been
deemed worthy to be published as beacons for the guidance of edi-
torial boards to come. When it's your turn, beloved followers, to
get out a class book you will have the privilege of leaving a guide
like this for future classes, so be sure to take full advantage of the

The Business College Graduate
Do you know that a year in a BUSINESS COLLEGE increases the earn-
ing power of a high school graduate as much as several years spent in
almost any other educational institution?
Hardly any other class of educated men and women receive a beginning
salary so large as do the graduates of a BUSINESS COLL-EGE.
Nor is this all. Few have better chances to rise-either in position or
in salary. U
Thousands of the leading officials in the great corporations and business
houses today were once stenographers, bookkeepers or clerks in the olifice.
The explanation is simple. Who would more naturally receive promotion
than the man in the office whose duties give intimate inside knowledge of
the methods and policies of the firm and who is brought into close daily
contact with the directors of the business?
The demand for trained office workers of all kinds which is urgent today
must continue urgent. But the demand for TRAINED EXEOUTIVES
will be even more pressing than at present, for the enormous economic
losses of the war must be made good.
Wliat field offers so promising an outlook to ambitious young men and
