The work of the Staff is finished. Since the only measure of our failure or
success lies in your approval or disapproval, we ask that before criticising our Work
you take into consideration the difficulties under which We have labored.
This is the year book for the class of 1925, the book that the staff, and
many people who are not members of the staff, have Worked faithfully to give you.
We have tried to set down here the events that you will like to recall. We hope
We have made a book that will please you now, and that in years to come you Will
read and reread and will find here a living memory of days when We, the members
of the class of 1925 worked and played together.

The reason Why Sally has always been a favorite
name with song writers puzzled us-until we knew
"our Sally." Now we don't blame the song writersf
Sally is so full of life and fun that she makes every-
body want to sing. 'We think life would be all joy
for Sally if it were not for one thing. Yes, youlve
guessed it-cows! But some day Sally will get over
her fear of cows and then wonlt life be wonderfull

Jean might be called the "Queen of Hearts" and
that would be no tlattery, but the ungarnished truth.
Her popularity among the panted sex is indis-
putable, This "pretty dancing teacher" was simply
swamped with invitations from the aspiring under-
classmen,who all proved apt pupils under her expert
graphs, to make even a fair beginning of enumerat-
ing them. She is the most entertaining person we
know. She is always so joyous and impetuous that
we never know what to expect next from her.
However, she is exasperatingly contradictory. For
this she has been known to go into raptures over
brown eyes, and once she actually knealt before a

One of the group, apparently a sort of chieftan approached the sailors with out-
stretched arms. This notable began talking in gutteral tones, and proclaimed to
l1is eager audience that his name was "Brownie7' and that he was chieftan of the

the vagrants into their quarters and offered them great dishes of advice served
on plates of sophistication.
Many years passed and the land of the Tribe of Nineteen Twenty-Fivia was
becoming a world power. Since the landing of Columbus and his crew, great
changes had been effected, many wars had been fought against the opposing savages
and their chief, but now once again, peace and prosperity ruled the land. Tony
Eastman, the father of his country, was holding forth and was planning great
deeds. He was building up a reputation for the land, and in spite of perilous wars
against his adversary, had succeeded in l924, April 22, by the notable battle ofthe
Junior Play, in placing the land in the proud position of independence which it
now holds. But this aspiring land was to climb even higher on the ladder of
success. lt was to light for a more noble cause, for a more worthy ideal, to triumph
over greater obstacles.
On October 27, 1924 the 4'Great Civil War of the Detention Room" began.
The question of slavery became heated and seemed to threaten the whole country.
AIZIIIY severe battles were waged. Sometimes some of the leaders of the oppOSitC

I stood outside my door, patiently waiting for the U. S. Mail Aeroplane to
hove in sight. I had been waiting nor for three minutes, and as the air-man is
seldom late, I was beginning to worry. Soon, however, the familiar hum became
evident. As the plane swooped lower I grabbed my megaphone and shouted:
"Anything for me?v
"Decidedly," he answered, and with his words there descended in a flurry, 3
Whoile skyful of letters. Eagerly I lifted my arms to receive them. They fluttered

deserve special mention. g

With this display of talent and with a very unusual and comical plot the
play was pronounced a success. The plot revolves about the name of Ernest and
the attraction of the name for two girls, Cicely and Gwendolyn. There are also
two very dear and very clever boy friends, John and Ernest, who make lifegenerally
miserable for each other. After the girls have discovered much to their disappoint-
ment, the fiance of neither is named Ernest and that they still love them, Lady

just long enough before Christmas to warrant a ponderous vacation for the
Freshmen and Sophomores, the ball made its first basket. The privilege of dis-
cussing the desirability of the Detention Room was given the "youngsters" and
coached by Bliss Shattuck and Mr. hlidglev. The two teams fought their battle
in assembly soon after vacation. The Freshmen carried off the honors.
The ball made its second basket when the Juniors and Seniors tackled the sub-
ject of Capital Punishment. The poor libraries! How the floor from the door to
the stacks was worn for the next few weeks! hir. hlidgley had the arduous task
of trying to keep from one team what the other knew, for he had to coach both sides.
After much wear and tear on the libraries and hlr. Klidgley-and the debaters-
the battlefield of assembly was entered and the contest held. The Juniors came
out on top by a 2-l decision of the judges.
To decide who gets the live points and who the three towards the Stowell
Cup, the ball must make a final basket. That is, the Juniors and Freshmen must
have a mutual argument. They will probably tussel over the value of daylight
saving. Coach Xlidgley will work again. '
Then, with our highly experienced debaters, we shall be ready to invite other
schools to listen to words from our eager tongues.

not doubt that there were other songsters about than those of the feathered species.
Snatches of "Mikado" and all the new popular music Would ill the air. Never-
theless, with all this caroling ability, the Glee Club here does not seem to thrive.
In fact, it has almost been forced to pass out of existence. This has certainly not
been due to the lack of outside aid, nor the lack of executive ability, but simply
to a lack of interest and enthusiasm. Probably We are doing too many other things.
We chose our officers very carefully electing for President, Edna Shaw, Sec-
retary and Treasurer, Eileen Thayer, Librarian, Marjorie Cook. First, Miss
Taylor and then Miss Johnson very kindly consented to direct us and Miss Tracy

On November 7, the annual Hollowe'en party was held. The program con-
sisted of three pantomimes: "A hflarriage Failuref' "A Ghost VValk,7, HA Night-
mare", and a recitation, James Vlfhitcomb Riley's "Little Grphan Annie," by
Helen Joy. The party closed with refreshments and dancing.
In November the club presented a short play 'fThe Exchange." At Christmas
time a scene was given from "The Bird's Christmas Carol.,7 Both of these, pres-
entations have been successful and the club intends to produce one more play before
the end of the school year.
During the year monthly meetings have been held in co-operation with the
Girls Club. VVC have been particularly fortunate in obtaining such interesting
speakers as hlr. hlorton, Klr. Smart, Professor Patterson, and Professor Rand.
Looking back, We consider that this year has been a creditable one and We
sincerely hope that future years will be even more so.

Democratic ideals and good fellowship, are embodied in the Girls, Club.
The first step in its program was taken when they electedglflorence Sears,
president, Grace Hardendorff, vice-president, Jennie Lyman, treasurer, and Esther
'Wentworth, secretary, also the social committee consisting of: Jean Searle, Nlargery
Hintze, Verabell Fulton, Dorothea Kidder, besides our faculty advisors Miss
Tracy and Nliss Henry.
lN'fr. Brown very kindly permitted us to hold a rally meeting in the auditorium
during school hours. lyfiss Nickerson gave a short and snappy speech about the
club. Soon a rally week was held and each girl who became a member was tagged,
each class having a different color.
Perhaps the most popular event of the season was an over-night hike out to
Pelham. We very fortunately secured lWr. Burnett's charming little cottage which
successfully housed thirty, very tired, hungry girls. When allarduous tasks were
over, we adjourned to the living room, sang, acted, listened and above all, talked.
The hours at which we finally retired were varied. It is rumored that one group
of night walkers capered about till the wee hours of morning.
Since Amherst is so blessed with literary geniuses, were were expremely for-
tunate in securing them to give lectures:-lkfr. Smart read us "VVurzel Flummeryf'
which greatly pleased our funny bonesg lVfr. lNforton, his charming poems, Pro-
fessor Patterson, a delightful comedy, f'lVfiss Civilization", Miss Henry told us
many things about Hawaii of which we had been densely ignorantgwhile last but not
least, lVfr. Rand read us selections from his poems. These meetings have been held
with the Dramatics Club and have proved very interesting as well as educational.
The annual dance, the crowing event and by some considered the most im-
portant, was very successfully conducted in February. The music, which was
very peppy, was furnished by Hamilton's Symphony Qrchestra.
The Girlis Club is certainly a worthwhile and active organization. Weiclose
its history for this year with a feeling of satisfaction and with the hope that it has
not suffered under the guidance of the girls of nineteen hundred and twenty-five.

The Graphic has been very successful in its ninth season. It is a good deal
larger and a good deal richer because it has the biggest circulation and the greatest
number of advertisements on record. The two departments of Narrative and
Descriptive writing have been combined under the head of the Literary depart-
ment. There have been several unique events during the year thus far. Not
the least of them was the printing of a letter and a picture of Harlan Fiske Stone
When he was appointed Attorney'-Cleneral. The thanks for this line progress are
due to Andrew Peters, the editor, and loan Cook, the literary editor. Recogni-
tion is also due to the efforts of Anthony liastman, whose departure has caused
mitch grief in literary circles and elsewhere. '
It is the wish and conlident trust of the retiring board that the "Graphic',
will continue to flourish.

a spirit of clean competition and good sportsmanship between the classes in U16

class participating most in the student activities ofthe school to have its numeralS

.AX point system was selected whereby credits are awarded, according to 21 PTC'

for the best class assemblyg for the winners of the inter-class debating contest'
for participitation in prize speaking, for the best attendance and punetuahty
records: for w '
yay ment of class dues and for many other items.
The general attitude tow
ard the contest, after the first heat had worn OH,
was that we seniors would carrv of tl h '

The first call for candidates for football brought out about twenty-five men,
and then the squad was increased and decreased according to the discretion of
each man. A few weeks of hard practice rounded the team into form for its first
first game with Palmer, which we lost by a score of 24-0. Our next games
should have shown marked improvement, but when the games ended, we were
always on the short end of the score. The last two games were decidely in our
favor. Although we did lose one of those two by one point, this doesn'ti'tell the
story of the game itself. Our final game was won by an overwhelming score of
84-O from New Salem.
The captain of the team was a junior, "Chick" Parnell, who played at quarter
back and scored many of the teamfs points. The playing of "Mac" Brown was a
feature in about every game, and about every play was centered about him. Q He
distinguished himself as being the best defense back on the team. Strong, like all
class officers, was very busy in the first few weeks of school and he did not find time
to get out to practise. Gnce 'fStrongie', got playing at end, there was no doubt as
to whose position it was. He made a creditable showing as left end. The others to
win their letters were hlichael Skibicki, William Dreher and Donald Woodbury.
These two played in top form and deserve credit. Elwell, a senior, did not win his
letter, but should be given honorable mention. ,Marliert, Joy, Wolcott, Holt,
Grebbin, VV. Smith, Rl. Smith, Eldridge and Holden are left as a nucleus for the
team next fall. ' "

' BASEBALL '
With no games played, and but little practice, the real strength of the baseball
team is unknown. With the exception of '4Hick,' Lyman and c'Dutch" Stock
well, the team remains intact from last season. With this aggregation, Coach'
Williams expects to develope a winning team. -
Pat Joy, probably the most Versatile player of the squad, will Captain the
team this year. "lVlac,' Brown, "Tripe" Pariseau, "Lank" Strong and "Dave'7
Shumway, all seniors, will be leading players this year. "Mac" has been an ardent
member of every major athletic squad from the day he entered high school. His
familiar phrases will be heard again this year behind the bat. Dave will be called
upon to do the bulk of pitching. "Tripe,' looks like a fixture at first base, and
Strong is playing right field. Other letter players are Parnell, Wilfred Smith,
Grebbin and Britt.
Other members of the squad showing varsity ability are Geo. Holt, Milton
Thornton, "Tug,' Kennedy, Ed. Fawcett, "Red" Goodwich, '4Stan7' Beleski and
"Bro" Alley, last years capable manager will again manage the team and has
arranged the following schedule.
