It was with genuine pleasure that
we anticipated the opening of school
and the advent of Mr. Cook in the
autumn of 1919, for our previous
school year had been broken up by
influenza, liberty bond campaigns and
innumerable other causes. We expec-
ted a most pleasant and successful
year and all our expectations were
more than realized. Mr, Cook mat-
erially raised our scholastic standard,
and instituted mid-year and final
examinations which put our school on
a par with the best of secondary
schools. His duties done so well in the
High School, he was given in addition
supervision of all the Amherst Schools.
These combined responsibilities, how-
ever, were too great for any one man to

carry, so the principalship had to be
given up. But, even though we have
no intimate relations with him at pres-
ent, we shall always remember with
pleasure the relations of the past.
At the middle of the school year,
Mr. Williarn H. Brown, who was
previously assistant principal, became
principal. Although he has not pre-
sided very long we know him to be an
excellent head master and the suc-
ceeding classes are to b'e congratulated
on having him. 1921 expresses the
hope that instead of having the mis-
fortune of further changes the under-
classmen may all graduate during

Our visions and fond hopes of ever having a Gold Bug seemed blasted when
up to the mid-year nothing Was said about such a book and We all took it for granted
that the 1921 Gold Bug was to be a zero with the rim rubbed out. But, about the
first ,of March, Ralph appeared With figures and data which showed that a class
book could be published before June that would be highly superior to any pre-
viously published. After some discussion a staff was elected Which kept pegging
away 'till it produced the book which lies before you. Its quality is not for the
staff libeing prejudicedj to judge,but it is our sincere hope that it will more than
meet all your expectations.
As a matter of economy nothing can be said in favor of the book but We believe
that every cent will be repaid in the satisfaction which you feel as you are reminded,
in glancing over its pages, of the happy, care-free days in Amherst High School.
This book carries with it the best Wishes of the Staff to every' member of
1921 for his greatest success in whatever he does after leaving the school where so
many play days and Work days have spent together.

Freshman Officers' Ralph Spaulding, Eleanor Gallinger Nlarion Reid
Twas a lucky -tar that was shining when the class of 1921 entered high
school A gay band we were indeed and having successfully encountered all the
perrls of the grades and being rich in the wisdom of the three R s we felt that We
had acquired no small corner of the world s store of knowledge
But when we gazed into the faces of our learned elders and puzzled our brain
over long words the deep mystery of the place crept upon us and we slowly began
to realize that there still remained things to learn
What a labyrinth the building seemed to our unsophisticated mind-sl So
many turns and doors' Some l'1ndly benignant senior would even occasionally
rescue a trembling member of our clas from the clutches of the supply room l11tO
which he had wandered on h1s way to class
Gradually we began to feel le s queer and more at home Class oflicers were
elected Then the 1dea of chooslng class colors and a class motto in the Freshman
year was originated The next important matter to be decided was the selection
of a class pin, and a class meeting was held for this purpose Having accomplished
so much we were ready for any emergency and were quite ready to challenge anyone
who mlght hintlthat we were not up-and-coming
Patr1ot1sm ran high 1n the veins of every member Besldes leading the other
classes 1n our contributions to the Red Cross and the buying of War Savlngs Stamps,
we purchased a Liberty Bond, and when the prize was offered for the best speech
ol? the subject of War Savings Stamps we were not behind, but took our place in
t e contest. The judges, however, felt that we needed a little more ex erience
in puxlgic speak1ng and oratory, so the reward was given to an upperclassman
e not only devoted our energies to war activities but we were al t d

had organized a basketball team and had inspired the Junior High team with awe
and admiration by winning several victories.
By this time the seniors realized that we were really of some worth after all,
and so they decided to make our acquaintance by holding a reception for us.
Dancing and card playing were the principal features. Indeed, we were so much
impressed with the good time they gave us that we made plans immediately for a
Freshman social. Many tickets were sold and the event was a great success.
We were especially happy because of the thirteen dollars that were added to our
Sophomore Ofiicersz .Ralph Spaulding, Donald Sullivan, Marion Reid.
As Sophs we did our stern duty by the Freshmen, and watched over them with
a wary eye. They had to walk the straight and narrow path, and when anyone
deviated from it we were always on hand to take them by the collar and lay down
the law to them. Their excellent behavior today, we believe, is largely due to their
rigourous training in those early years. '
We loyally supported the Graphic and the athletic association: The All
Stars and the Wizards supported by Margaret Campion s manager and Elizabeth
Mitten, Eleanor Sprague, Jean Davidson, Hope Godwin, and Eleanor Gallinger
added pep and enthusiasm to the social side of school life. The games were well
attended. Yells were practiced until we could outyell everybody else. One mem-
orable event was the basketball game with Belchertown and the trip there, es-
pecially the return. The game was successful but as much could not be said for
the return from there- although some said that, considering the rain, the walk from
the Notch might have been worse.
This year Harold Brown, Hubert Elder, and Fish were added to those who
represented '21 in varsity sports.
Junior Officers: Ralph Spaulding, Donald Sullivan, lVIarion Reid.
In out third year we "put away childish things". Hair ribbons vanished by
magic and pugs appeared. The boys were no longer scrubs but the mainstay of
the teams. The class was represented in football by Sullivan, Fish,Harold Brown,
and the two Elders and last but not least Tal Eldridge. On the baseball field
Spaulding, Sullivan, Fish, and Musante proved themselves worthy of wearing the
HAH. In basketball the latter three with Harold Brown kept the referee busy
counting the number of times per minute that the ball was caged, and were always
the terror of the opposing team.
Ralph Spaulding was chosen manager of the high school orchestra, and great
enthusiasm was shown by the class for many of our number belonged to it and some
gave liberally of their time and effort to make it the success that it was.
The Science Club was organized in our Junior year under the direction of Mr.
Brown. Harold Elder and Elizabeth Patterson were elected members of the pro-
gram committee. , B
Uhr CEuIh Eng
But the main event of the year was the Junior Play which We had decided
would be "Hurryl Hurry! Hurrylv, a name that was in keeping with our pep and
push. The actors played their roles exceedingly Well. The large appreciative audi-
ence and the sum which was cleared for the Senior reception speak for the success
of the play.
Senior Officers: Ralph Spaulding, Donald Sullivan, Marion Reid.
Of all the years of our high school course this last year has been the busiest.
We have seen many additions to our school library, the Girls' Club has received
our loyal support and at present the president is a member of the Senior class,
the Athletic Association has felt the stimulus of our efforts. In debating We have
taken the lead, and also in athletics. The great number of Pro Merito pins which
we have earned speak for our scholastic standing. '
Now as we are nearing the close of our high school course we realize that soon
We must leave the familiar halls of A. H. S. We shall leave many friends and many
helpers who have made our life so pleasant and it is with heartfelt joy that we can
commit to them the sacred trust of preserving the name and honor of our highly
esteemed school. M M

I was alone! But more than that I was lonely. The night with its soft,
unmoving stillness impressed me strangely. I felt detached from all earthly
things-as if I might reach out and touch the stars-or commune with the Gods
in some far stretch beyond the horizon.
I was aroused from my musings by a sudden cool wind on my face, that seemed
to fondle my hair with clammy fingers. I was startled particularly when I observed
that although all the windows were open the curtains hung motionless, nor was
there a flicker from the two solitary candles which lighted my cabin. Was it fren--
zied imagination, or did I hear a knock? I turned, and from the corner of the room
there slowly advanced a shadow. I knew not what to do! Suddenly it began to
speak in a thin, hollow voice. I
"Do not be startled, Iam the spirit of 1921.1 have been near you for sometime
but I have not been able to get my message across to you as you have not thought
of me. But your unconscious longing to know of you classmates has enabled me
to come to you and tell you of them.
"But how does it seem to be just a shadow?"
"Uh, I am not. I still have all my members and faculties."
"Do tell me about them!"
"Well, they are scattered widely and are doing all sorts ofthings. Most of them
are well and happy.

W'e, the Class of 1921, have just emerg n . .
of four long, wearisome years of educational warfare. Through this direful period
h ie endured weeks of helpless groping in the impenetrable mists, and night
after night we spent in sweating our life-blood over ponderous volumes of long-
since-forgotten lore. Ever and anon through these fearful years we have been
lured on by faint, fitful flashes of the 'cVision Splendid", which flickered before us
momentarily, to be again dissolved in the impalpable ether. But, let us speak no
more of such tender memories, for now we have pierced the clouds, and stand aloof
on the topmost pinnacle of understanding, bathed in the sublime rays of the
We feel - as we gaze triumphantly on the rest of mankind from these empy-

it, we should draw up a last "Will and Testament", in order that our priceless
treasures, acquired through bloody sweat and unrelenting toil, be distributed as
fairly as possible among our friends and our successors as Seniors in the Amherst

ability, the spotless record, the awe-inspiring grandeur, and the profound dignity

There was an atmosphere of hurry around the high school in the spring ofi1920
when the remarkable artistic ability of the Junior Class hustled and bustled and
tussled day by day, night after night, week after week, and almost drove Mrs.
Gettell crazy trying to improve on Booth, Irving, Lauretta Taylor and John
Barrymore - and Charlie Chaplin in presenting a play. It was not Shakesperian,
no not exactly, nor Fitchian nor even Cohanian. It was not Othello or the Winter
Garden Revue or Barnum and Bailey, it was "Hurry, Hurry, Hurrylv Did Mrs.
Gettell do wonders? She did!
There was Donald Sullivan as Jack Crandall. Don played hi-s part to perfec-
tion as a real manly, self possessed Southerner. And there was Russell Spear as
Doctor Alosius Bartholomew, a college professor who does not know af man in his
classes a distinct character success with real humorous effectiveness. There was
Eleanor Sprague as Mrs. Hooker, Floy's mother about forty, very sedate and mat-
ronly. And Margaret Campion was a very pretty and charming maid with a
twinkle. Harold Elder was a much worried business man as Mr. Hooker an was
well contrasted with his son Steve, who was Ralph Spaulding, a brisk college
Sophomore. William Davenport was a football hero-, Ted Strong, who did not
flt among the knick knacks of an ordinary room, and William showed genuine
suffering when Letitia Brown, very soft and alluring, as played by Helen Dudley,
made love to him. Elizabeth Patterson last but far from least, as Floy Hooker,
Was atmost charminglittle debutante with flashing black eyes who played her part so
well that the whole audience fell in love with her, as well as Jack Crandall.
The other people who helped to make the play a real success, were: Miss

attends its first meeting. The following OHTICCFS were elected: President, hlargaret
Campion, Vice President, Elizabeth Farley, Treasurer, -Frances Thompson and
Secretary, Frederica Brooks. Under these officers many new plans were formulated.
They decided to divide the club up into different sections, such as the Glee Club,
the Dramatics and the Basketball sections. The girls were at liberty to belong to
any of the sections that they wished. A social committee was formed composed of
Eleanor Frost as Chairman and a representative from each class. This committee
made a program of good times for the year that have been carried out with much
The iirst feature was something entirely new for the club, an overnight hike
to Mount Toby. As far as enjoyment was concerned this was most successful but
Sleep was entirely out of the program. However, the girls decided to repeat the
performance in the spring.
In order to show the mothers and fathers of the girls the general idea of the
club, Parents Night was introduced, callinginto action all the sections. Two teams
were picked from the Basketball section and a very lively game ensued. The Glee
Club sang and the Dramatic section presented a humorous play entitled "A Little

in chemistry,'physics or other scientific subjects to join the Science Club at its
first meeting. Several would-be scientists appeared on the appointed day and
elected the above officers, the most scientific of the scientists. The election of
officers was followed by a discussion as to what the program for the year should
include. After reaching no particular conclusion the meeting adjourned, the
secretary-treasurer having been authorized to collect dues and to subscribe for
the Scientific American for use in the library.
The chief activities of the year were concentrated on wireless, the majority
of the club members being especially interested in this branch of communication
and science. Because of the interest on the part of some of the members a wireless
set has been put in operation at tI.e High School and many worthwhile hours have
been spent in the erection of it. Masts were placed on the school roof and the
aerial stretched between them.
Much enthusiasm has been manifested in the wireless apparatus this year
and many new sets have been installed by members of the club. As this is a very
interesting and profitable subject it is hoped that it will be promoted even more in
future years. -

On the evening of March 11 1921 turmoil reigned behind the scenes at Am-
herst High School for eight of her cherished offspring were about to make their
be carved in glory on the Millet Cup
It was stiller than death as the favored few stole stealthily onto the stage.
The first speaker crept forth bowed nimbly, relieved himself of his suppressed
emotion by verbal procedure , wrought another bow and feebly regained his seat.
This process was repeated by each speaker in turn with very slight variations.
Then a long pause The judges were pondering the verdict The battle was close,
for all of them had done well At last with measured step, Mr. Smith Cchief of
the Judgesl ascended the platform, cleared his throat, and proclaimed the decision.
Then for a half hour of handshaking congratulations and commendations. Every-
one wa happy for the outcome was satisfactory and the fearful strain was over.
Rachel Baker and Hyman Novick received their hard fought-for and well
deserved reward as the best girl speaker and the best boy speaker. We're proud
of you' keep up the good-work'

Conceitis not a virtue, neither is self-praise more becoming to 21 class than t0
an individual, but thisis written by ourselves and for ourselves and so what may
seem self-praise is merely a modest account of our accomplishments. Our athletic
attainments, however, are such that they need no written document to perpetuate
their memory. The names of Sullivan, Fish, Musaxite, Brown, and many others
will live forever as leaders in the annals of high school athletics.
Football practice began early in the fall and although much of the material
was new a good team was soon worked up. Though the team showed great im-
provement by the end of the season, it was from the start an organization of which
the school was justly proud and one which always stood for clean playing and good
sportsmanship. We can well be proud of the results of our football season when we
realize that 'although we competed with schools far out of our class we scored
during the season ninety-two points while only forty-nine were counted against us.
The Senior class in particular should look with pride at the accomplishments of
the season considering the great part which our men had in gaining them.
Seven of our men on the first team were from the class of 1921 and it was these
men who made the team what it was. Sullivan, as captain, played inhis usual
good' form at fullback. He set an -example of good playing and clean sportsmanship
toall his men. His running and tackling were excellent and although he played
hard and was the outstanding player of every game, he came through the season
without an injury. Even though this was Spaulding's first year of football, he
played a ,remarkable game at quarterback and showed good generalship and ex-
cellentjudgement at all times. Harold Elder at halfback played a dashing game
and was always a consistent ground gainer for Amherst. To the misfortune of
the High School he suffered an injury to his wrist and was unableto finish the season.
Fish at right end .played a fast game and by his clever playing stood out as one of
the team's best men. Brown, at the opposite end of the line, kept up to his usual
standard. He played a hard game both on the offence and defense and we shall
have to look a long way to find a man to take his place. Eldridge put up 'a wonderful
exhibition of football at his berth at right tackle and was certainly one of the most
valuable men on the squad. He played a hard, fast, dashing game. He could
open a hole in any line and could tackle any man that ran on two legs. If you wish
proof of this, ask any man who played against him. Last but not least, the Senior
class was represented by Hubert Elder at center.
and- his work on the defensive was excellent. All plays through center met a stone-
wall defense, but a wall with hands and
tuted in the line positions and deserve a great deal of credit.
His passing was always accurate

Football is by far the most popular sport in high school and T116 TCHITI Was
usually supported very well. All home games, except the one with Northampton,
were played on Pratt Field. The Northampton game was played on Alumni
Field, M. A. C. Probably the team played its best football in the second game with
Greenfield, but the sensation of the season was the defeat of Brattleboro in the
last game of the season. Playing in two inches of soft snow at Brattleboro,
the game was won in the last minute of play by a paSS ffOIT1 SUMVHH to Fish-
The line up was as follows: Captain, Sullivan, Manager, Spaulding.
Halfbacks: Harold Elder, Miller, Kelley.
Quarterbacks: Spaulding, Fish.
Centers: Hubert Elder, Strong.
Guards: Duncan, Magrath, E. Brown, Davenport.
Tackles: Eldridge, Mitchell.

Basketball prospects for 1921 looked very good with four of last year's team
back. The outlook was particularly biight for the Seniors with the entire varsity
from the class of 1921. The team met with much hard luck and disappointment
but nevertheless the season was a credit to them and to the school. The team
played hard, fast, clean games throughout the season and was undoubtedly the
best quintet that the school has ever produced. The team was as follows:
Captain, Sullivan, Manager, Harold Elder.
Forwards: Sullivan, Musante, Judge.
Guards: H. Brown, Jack, Dowd, Kelley.

Baseball practice has just begun and the season opens in a short time with
Hopkins Academy. Prospects are good forawinning team and We have great hopes
for the coming season. We are playing in the Valley League this season and are
far out of our class. However, we expect to come out victorious and be champions
of the league. Although the first team has not been definitely picked,it looks as
if the majority of the players Would come from the Senior class.

Return games with a number of these schools will probably be arranged but as
yet no definite dates have been set for them. 1. V
The Senior class is justly proud of the part her men have played in athletics A i,
and the things that they have done for the school. May their victories never fffi.
cease and may they go on successfully to new fields of conquest to gain new honors
and laurels. We shall be forever proud to have counted them our friends.
The history of athletics in Amherst High School would not be complete without
reference to Mr. Williams who has been our coach for two years. Although it A
perhaps seems that the success of a season is due entirely to the team, a large part
of it is due to the coach who criticises, pushes and inspires throughout the season. Nf
Mr. Williams has faithfully followed theteams through every season and has W
developed splendid athletes from raw material' so that in battle they appear like A
veterans. In the last two years he has produced probably the best teams that V
Amherst High School ever had and it is to him that much of the credit is due.
The 1921 athletes will remember with pleasure their athletic and personal relations 'X
with him and regret that he cannot accompany them as coach through their college
