Athletics Editor Advertising Manager
Alexander Mackimmie Francis Crowley,
On October 4th, the,Seniors assembled to elect the Gold Bug Staff. A few
days later, the Chosen Few who met to discuss plans were enthusiastic, 'though
rather skeptical as to their own ability. As a result of this meeting, the associate
editors hurried to the library in search of charming and clever epithets to be ap-
pended to each individual's picture. The statistics editor made personal calls
on several members of the class who were rather slow about sending in information
regarding their past, present, and future. The athletics editor daily besieged
Mr. Williams's office for schedules and results of various games. The business
manager, with great difficulty, contrived to wring from a few conscientious class-
mates the preliminary payment of two dollars. The advertising manager scoured
the town for decorative material for the last pages of the Gold Bug. ,
We finally succeeded in rounding up the Faculty on the front steps of the school,
so that Mr. Barnes could take their picture. Then, with the aid of Bertha
LaPlante, to whom we owe much, the pages were typewritten.
Just before the first of May, the date on which the manuscript was to be sent
to the printer, confusion reigned. The editor-in-chief lost three pounds in one
Week. Others threatened to resign from office. Finally, however, the many
parts were assembled, and the Gold Bug was despatched to the printer.

Freshman Officers: President, William Atkinson, Vice-President, john Brooks,
Secretary- Treasurer, Sylvia Blair.
In the fall of 1919, when the gentle but insistent school bell recalled us from
our various vacations, we gathered,-a heterogeneous group labeled the Fresh-'
man class,-the largest that had ever entered Amherst High School. To us, who
were as timid as any of our predecessors, the building was a formidable labyrinth
of mysterious passageways, leading always to thewrong room. Confusion! Mul-
tiplication and Derisionl Not a single- friendly hand showed usthe right way
After we had been sufficiently initiated into the mysteries of high school life, we
elected our .officers with much discussion and difficulty. Next came the all-
important matter of choosing the class pin. This was accomplished with great
success, and we felt ourselves well-established members of the order of High School
Students. , ' ' A
The Sophomores, being unable to duck our president, were much chagrined
but we waxed joyful. "Here is a class that will do great things. Watch us," we
said to ourselves. Q . .
P We contributed to the noble but expiring "Graphic", attended some of the
dances, and walked the corridors like regular veterans, but inside we were a wee
bit afraid of the learned teachers and the wise upperclassmen. Then vacation
came, and we were glad to get away and enjoy ourselvesuwithout sophomore sup-
ervision. . .
Sophomore Officers: President, Don Marshall, Vice President, Eldridge
Burnett, Secretary- Treasurer, Sylvia Blair. ' ' '
Sophomoresl How much older and more experienced we were than those
little Freshmen of a year ago! We began to be represented in athletics and we
developed more lung power at the games. When the Prize Speaking Contest came
along, half of the competitors were of our number, and Rachel Baker and Hyman
Novick came out victorious. Then the Sophomore girls won the gym contest,
which caused more rejoicing. Oh, yes,we were coming along in the world, especially
Amllvrnt iliigh Srhnnl
after we bossed those pesky Freshmen who 'seemed so ignorant and wicked at the
beginning of the year. '
Feeling a need of entertainment and enjoyment, our class decided one bright
day to visit Aldrich Lake, so on june 4, 1921, we held a spree, called the "Sopho-
more Picnicf' Teachers were invited, pictures were snapped, food was eaten,
and canoes were paddled, to the infinite enjoyment of all concerned.
junior Officers: President, Don Marshall, Vice-Preriderit, Thomas Campion,
Secretary- Treasurer, Sylvia Blair. Q
juniors! My, how old we were getting! In assembly we tried to look wise
and set a good example to the lowerclassmen. In huge numbers we attended
the various sports and yelled like wild Indians, we subscribed to the rejuvenated
"Graphic,H joined the Athletic Association, and played on all the teams. Our
girls again carried off -the honors in the annual gym contest.
Then came the "junior Play." That magic phrase sent many of us scurrying
after things to memorize for tryouts, and then we waited in agony until the cast
was picked. We decided to give "Milestones" by Arnold Bennett. People told us
that we put on a good play and did it well. We had great fun and incidentally
earned enough money to give the Seniors a fine reception.

immie, Secretary- Trectrurer, Sylvia Blair. I A
Presumably having worked during the last three years and having attained
enough knowledge to entitle us to be Seniors, we entered into that proud estate.
we have gained knowledge from books and experience. Among other things
We have learned through happy contact that teachers as well as other mortals, in
in spite of all their learning, have souls,-a thing of which we were profoundly

.Work on 4'Milestones,'7 a three-act play by Bennett and Knoblauch, given by
the class as their Junior Play was begun on January third. Many were striving
for dramatic success. The play progressed slowly but steadily with Mr. Richards,
of Amherst College as coach, who will always be particularly remembered by the
cast because of his patience. Mrs. Gettell was 'fbehind the scenes" in every way
and improved many of the parts by individual coaching. A
May fourth was announced as the date for the play. Amherst homes were
searched for "ye old-fashioned gownsf' The girls discussed everything from the
hoops of 1860, and the bustles of 1885, to the modern "glad ragsi' of 1920. The
boys contented themselves with practicing the art of adjusting frock coats and
dress suits. At the dress rehearsal everyone succeeded in stumblingover the
threshold which the stage manager, Don Marshall, had carefully constructed to
stand at least three inches from the floor. The final day arrived and with it RAIN!
Allen Houghton as John Rhead, a progressive young man of 1860, the strong-
willed father of 1885, .and later the selfish grandfather of 1912, won much praise.
His wife, Rose, played by Sylvia Blair, was his faithful follower until their golden
wedding anniversary, when she attempted revolt. ,Rachel Jsaker, as Gertrude
Rhead, stood out as a very independent. maiden aunts who was a sympathetic
friend of her niece Emily Rhead, Qthis part being played very cleverly by Dorothy
Crettelll. Humor and interest were increased by the domestic troubles of Samuel
Sibley, played by Hyman Novick and his wife Nancy, Margaret Thayer. Thomas
Campion as Ned Pym, an Englishlgentleman, was very amusing because pf his
nerves and social difficulties. In the final scene of the play Frances Thompson as
Muriel Pym overrulediher grandfather's desiresiby marrying the man of herlchoice,
Richard Sibley, played by Philip Bakery To' the surprise of, everyone Muriel
Pym's mother, Emily Rhead, announced that Arthur Preece, Alexander Mack-
immie, was to ,be her second husband. Thepart of Lord Monkhurst, a typical
modern gentlemaniwho' was greatly bsfsdy by domesticiwrangles, suited Francis
Crowley very well. Eli Ginsburg and Matthew,Blaisdell as butlers, and Charles
Fitts as the footman completed the cast. ' N . ' A
. With the fall of the curtain, the cast, coach, and all those interested in the
play felt that their efforts had been successful. Besides financial gain the Juniors
had learned the value of co-operation. As Seniors, we wish to thank all .those
who helped to make the play a success. A I g

stumbling gait of its early existence, and is now progressing steadily under its
own power. I D'
This past year, live numbers appeared promptly at the promised time, the
New Year and Easter issues being larger than any former publicationat A, H. S.
If possible, this increased size will be made permanent. A Christmas Story Con-
test stimulated interest in the paper. . A . T ' . I
V Three important improvements have been made. The duties of each member
of the staff have been fixed more definitely, which will simplify the editing and pub-
lishing of the paper. The office of bookkeeper was created, thereby centering in
one person the handling of all money. -A set of nine clever cuts which appeared
first in the October issue, add zest to the pages. A ' U
Thus, although the old board fully, realizes that "The Graphicn' is as yet far
from the acme of perfection, its members feel that through changes and addi-
tions they have given the paper a good push and have greatly increased its stability.

Once again Amherst gazes with sorrow at the list of athletes Who leave her
halls to continue their feats in higher institutions. No class in recent times has
given so many athletes to the school teams, and We, as atclass, may Wellbe proud
of our record which is one of the best in the annals of the school. ' f
Glance at our long list of heroes: Flebut, Dorsey, Campion, Fitts, Lyman,
Duncan and Mackimmie. These names have been the very pillars supporting
Amherst's athletic name in the last four years. Farbeit from us to boast, but Who,
past or present, has produced anlarray like that?
Before We hurry along to the real facts about this year's teams, we must
give due honor to Mr. Williams, the man Who has contributed most to the success
of our teams. He entered' this institution With tus, and during ourfour years here,
he has piloted us to success. His patience and good humor, his knowledge of
athletics and, above all, his earnest desire that each individual obtain full mastery
of himself, these have made him the most popular coach A. H. S. has ever had.
It is with great regret, and with best Wishes forlihis successful future at our Alma
Mater, that we now leave him. ' ' r - ,

in recent years. The team ended the season with a record of 7 games won and 8
games lost. At' the beginning of the season prospects were bright, but owing
to inelegibility, illness, and other causes, they began to fade. About the middle
ofthe season Coach Williamis was faced with the task of reorganizing his team.
This he didiwiith' remarkable results and completed a successful season.
The bright spots were victories over.Natick High School, M. A. C. Two-year
and Srhitli-'7Acade'my. Natick came to Amherst from the eastern part of the
state 'expecting an easy victory, but received a big surprise in their defeat. The

defeated after a bitter struggle. Smith Academy, victorious over both Easthamp-

Baseball practice started with a squad of about thirty men reporting daily
to Coach Williams, in preparation for the first. game with Hopkins Academy. '
Prospects were good, and with a great deal of hard .work a capable team was
developed. The loss of EX-Capt. Dorsey, '23, was keenly felt and Coach Williams
faced the difiicult task of developing a new first-class catcher. Last year's infield
is all back and the outiield contains several veterans. Among those from whom
the team was chosen were: Capt. Dowd, '24, Kelley, '25, Reed, '25, Parnell, '25,
Mackimmie, '23,,Lyman, '23, M. Brown, '25, D. Shumway, '25, Dickinson, '24,
Campion, '23, Flebut, '23, Allen, '24, Skorupski, '23, and Smith, '26, with Manager
