just one word in our defence: .if it should seem to you that we have treated
certain individuals more roughly than they deserve, please excuse us and remember
that none of us are perfect. Anything not in the best of form should be taken
cum grano Jalif.
We have endeavored to make this our book and in this task we have been
kindly assisted by members of the class. Wfe would like to say that we have given
YOU our best in this line, but as some of us are descended from George VVashington,
WC dare not. However, we hope you will be satisfied, and that you will have
Gccaslon to look Upon it with pride in yourtold age.

Wihat a sacrilice it must have been for the Seniors to tolerate the entrance of
such a green lot as we were, those measley freshmen, four years ago. We were
quite infatuated with the importance which we thought ue were to the school and
tried to ape the prestige of our older classmen. But none of us can now look back
on those happy days with any regret whatever, for they will always stand out.
The next year we began to undergo a process of boiling down, from the free
and jovial atmosphere of our freshmen days we became a solid group of conven-
tional students, too sophisticated to see our own faults, and we took great delight
in making fun of our greener brothers. Wie were between two foes, the freshmen
on one side, who were not tolerant to our t
classmen who in turn disdained our put-on sophistication.

Being too lazy and indolent to take a task of so'much responsibility on our
shoulders, we went to see Abdulla Abdulla Cwhose middle name IS also Abdullaj

prayers Cat two C22 dollars CSD a prayerj to show him that he ought .to take the job,
After hinting that a few more prayers would not be considered impolite,
Abdulla A. Abdulla pulled his horoscopes from under the table by the tails and
set to work. ,
In order to make everything as clear as the Brother s lectures I must say that
Abdulla has three methods of telling fortunes:
1. By tea leaves.

3. By a crystal Ca stolen onej.
"Red" Goodrich was the first to be hauled over the coals. Knowing "Red,s,'
high marks and all-round athletic ability, we expected Abdulla to give him a lot of
tea leaves, but no, Abdulla says that "Red" will have a brilliant future in business
with W. C. Jones CNorth Amherstl selling pop and lollipops to the huge crowds
who will watch Frank Durant and "BillH Grebbin win the national doubles cham-
pionship in croquet.
Next, the tea leaves showed something resembling a duck,and as L. H. Smith
was the prisoner at the bar, Abdulla said that he CSmithD would be ducked as a
freshman unless he is drowned, and if his rapid mental development is not halted
during one of its rest periods Cone is on at presentl.
Abdulla A. Abdulla was still using the tea leaves but we wonit mention them
because they looked the same each time.
At any rate, Bryce Prindle will be placed in the Hall of Fame Qor the Rogue's

East will emit Grumman!
We, worthy Seniors of the class of 1927,
on the verge of departing from this
plane of school life, and no longer in
need of the different aids and guides
which we have had to cheer us along,
as well as the properties and estates
gained during our four years, do hereby
make and proclaim this our Last Will
AMHERST HIGH SCHOOL
To the entire student body we be-
queath our power to prove school spirit
and the desire to gain still greater' fame
in the athletic world together with the
hope that they will gain victories in
every phase of school life. It is also our
wish that the student body do every-
thing in its power to develop fellow
feeling from student to student.
Wie bequeath to our beloved Princi-
pal, our sincere affection, gratitude, and
reverence for many helps and kind-
nesses he has extended us during our
years at Amherst High.
To the Faculty, who have led us
along the paths in pursuit of know-
ledge, we give our warm admiration for
the knowing way in which they have
overlooked our many faults. Further,
we authorize the Faculty to use all
examples of wisdom, however startling,
gained from our recitations, in instruct-
ing future classes.
The class of 1928 we do declare the
successors of the name f'Seniors,' which
is the most valuable of our gifts with
the instruction that they observe with
pomp and royal dignity all of the
duties involved. Also We extend our
congratulations for their success in
fitting themselves as candidates for
graduation in 1928. Further we do
extend our good wishes, that each and
every one succeed in a triumphant
victory to such an extent that the
occassion will be Written in the annals
of the history of the school.
We leave the Sophomores the right
to feel proud in completing half the
Concurrent with this, we leave them
3 Year 1n which to fitly prepare them-
selves to fill, as noble representatives,
the coveted rank of "Seniors,"
To the Freshmen, we bequeath the
knowledge that they have the best
chance of all to prepare for a high honor
when graduating. If they begin the
fight now they can not help but win.
We admire the way in which they
have stood up under the customary
subjection of Freshmen.
During our four long years at
Amherst High we have acquired a
fondness for our Alma Nlater that
cannot be left behind, hence we direct
that We shall carry the memory of
happy days and good friends among
both teachers and pupils, in our
hearts always. Wvoe to the man who
shall slight the name of Amherst High
School for we shall surely haunt him.
In the name of the grandest school
in the world, Amherst High, so be it.
In Witvzerf Whereoif, we, the class of
1927, the testators, have hereunto sub-
scribed our names and set our seal,

The play revolved around a bet of ten thousand dollars which Bob made in
order to prove his ll3HCCC,S trust in him. It 'follows him through a series of ex-
cruciating mental tortures until he finally wins "just as the whistle blew," which
meagscfugt as the clock strikes four. To furnish amusement. there was the simple-
n e ishop Doran who knew nothing about business, who proceeded to get
swindled, and who got his money back, "with interest."

in policy, our director, lNflr. Alexander Richter, has continued on the basis laid by
Miss Blanche Samuels. The most important step in organization was the amalga-

musical spirit, to award the newly established music emblem for two years, service

an inspiration and model to all our players, and it was decided to attend these con-

Admitting to its membership,for the first time, boys as well as girls, the Glee
Club is practically new. On account of confiicting outside activities, a cut was
made during the midyear, and the organization is now on a firm basis. It has done
splendid work this year and has presented fine programs at Parent-Teachers'
Meeting, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, and Prize Speaking Contest, and has yet
to sing at Music Week, Parent-Teachers' Meeting and Graduation. The formation
of a male quartet is under way, and a program will be given before the end of the

The Debating Club has done as much this year to bring itself before the
public eye, if not more than in previous years. VVe feel that ourinterclass debates
not only showed how many good debaters we had among us, but also brought be-
fore the student body the pro and con of three extremely interesting questions.
The first debate, between the Seniors and the Juniors, was on the "Eight
Week System." The Junior team, George Kentfieid, Burton Goodyear, and
Edward Fawcett upheld the negative without success against the Senior team,
Lawrence Smith, Nelson Haskell, and Philip Ives.
The next contest on the "Honor Systeml' between the Freshmen, Florence
Haskell, Fritz Allis, and Karl Eastman and the Sophomores, Ruth Redman, Alonzo
LeClaire and Fred Vlfagman, left the Sophomores to compete in the rubber with the

victors. The Sophomores kept their same team whereas the Seniors put in LEGO
Takahashi in place of Philip Ives.
The climax of our spreading interest came in the debate with Hopkins. In this
debate we tried a new plan of sending one team to Hadley and keeping one at home.
Lawrence Smith, Leo Takahashi, and Ruth Redman upheld the affirmative at
home, aHdiMariOn Dyer, Bryce Prindle, and Frederick XA'721glT1LlIl,fl1C negative at
Hadley. The decision of the judges in both places was unanimous in our favor,
thus giving us an inspiration to hope for better things next year.

This year the uGraphic,' has had somewhat better support from the student
body than in former years. Due to this support and reduced rates obtained from a
printer in Northampton, it is expected that We will save about seventy-five dollars
this year which will bring the "Graphic,' almost back to normal. Two of the
faculty have helped us greatly. Nfiss Shattuck, as faculty advisor, has given
helpful suggestions and has checked both manuscript and proof for us. 1Xf1iss
Wagner has taken care of all of the typevvriting thereby solving that problem.
We sincerely appreciate their help.

Amherst's football season was a very successful one. Only two out of the six
games played were lost. In both cases our team was outweighed.
The opening game of the season was played on Blake Field with South Hadley
High School as the opponent. Amherst won by a 3 to O score. Foley earned the
winning points by kicking a field goal.
The next game, with West Springfield, was played at home, and ended in a
14 to 0 Victory for Amherst. "Bill,, Grebbin and "Bud" Jewett scored our touch-
downs, and "jack" Foley kicked the two points after touchdown.
Our next victory was over Turners Falls to the tune of 25 to 0. "Greb,' ran
wild for two touchdowns and Foley and Durant gained one each. The twenty-
fifth point was a point after touchdown and was kicked by"Jack,' Foley. Chauncey
Gilbert had to be carried from the field because of a broken leg suffered in the
The team journeys to Athol for the next game. Amherst's string of three
successive victories was broken by a 32 to O victory for Athol. Athol blocked
several of our punts and broke up many plays before they were well started.
The next game, Orange at Orange, was a 6 to O victory for Amherst. "Red"
Sullivan pulled a forward pass out of the air and went for a touchdown.
The last game of the season was with Northampton High at Northampton.
The game resulted in a 14 to 6 victory for Northampton. Our touchdown was
scored by "Bill" Grebbin.

The season started with a rush, plenty of new material and several members of
last year's team. Chemist Markert was back again after a year 'out of school.
The first bang came with the New Salem game, which Amherst won by a
39-9 score. "GrebU and Connors starred with seven floor baskets or fourteen
The next game was played in our own arena but it also happened that our own
gladiators were sacrificed. Williamstown High won by a 24-11 score.
Then came our all-star game. The Alumni entered the game five to one fav-
orites. They had to do their best to win and then only got by by the skin of their
teeth. The Alumni was made up of our once championship team with a few play-
ers who had graduated several years before. Basket followed basket as if the
teams were taking turns but the Alumni had the last chance and won 29-28.
On January 7, Smith School came here for our first league game. Amherst
was ahead 7-5 at half time but Smith rallied and won 13-11. Our seconds trimmed
Smith's seconds 20-18. We lost our next game, with Easthampton, 27-8. We
made only two fioor baskets and both were caged by "Bill,, Grebbin.
Our game with Smith Academy resulted in a 16-13 victory for the Academy.
It was anybodyis game until the final whistle. Amherst rallied in thc second half
and nearly won the game. '

The next game was different, pleasingly so, for we trimmed South Deerfield t
the tune of 28-18. "Grebv added IS points to his growing pile. The same fivi
'fmenv played the whole game. Frank and "Chemist,' held the Deerfield bunch
to only 7 baskets.
The game Ziffel' this WHS 21180 a Victory. Hopkins came here and was fed to
the lions. This game was one of the most exciting of the season. Hopkins was
ahead 17-16 with one minute to go when "Chemist" Markert nonchalently tossed
in two free throws,winning the game and a sore back. Markert scored 5 points
and f'Greb', and Wiclier 4 apiece. In case you canft add, the flnal score was 18-17,
in favor of Amherst.
We lost the next game by 1 point to Smith School. Smith's winning basket
was tossed through the net just a short while before the whistle blew. ln the next
game Easthampton licked the pants ohf us by a 33-16 score.
For our next game Amherst voyaged to Hatfield just to accept defeat. The
score was 21-17. Amherst made several rallies but none lasted long enough to
win the games. South Deerfield made up for her former defeat by winning 25-23.
It was Amherst's game until the last few minutes when a few lucky shots set Deer-
field ahead. .The visitors nearly won the game on foul shots. We lost the last
game of the season to Hopkins. The game was played in Hadley and resulted in
a 13-5 defeat.
The season was only moderately successful as we Won only 3 out of 12 games.
Strange to say our opponents have only scored 28 more points than we did: Amherst
203, Opponents 231.
"Greb', is our leading scorer with 92 points. Connors, Brown, and Porter
are next with 34, 27, and 18 points, respectively.
Most of the first string men have played their last basketball for Amherst
high. Grebbin, Marliert, Durant, Brown and Porter are graduating. "Red"

One might be led to expect that an organization such as the Faculty would
have some unanimity when it came to judging us for our Olhce Directory, yet. such
was not always the case. A few of these cases are interesting. The Faculty seem
to think that six people are the cleverest, but none of the six received more than
two votes. As for the best-looking boy, the honors are divided between Walter
Jones and Bill Grebbin, with four other contestants receiving a scattering. For
fear of appearing conceited, they declined to choose a favorite teacher, but they did
not hesitate to name Flora Keedy and Nlarion Skibicki the two most conceited
girls in the class, or Ives and Jones the most conceited boys. The best all-round
boy also stuck them, no less than six candidates being mentioned. In their opinion,
Haskell and Prindle are most important to the class. All of which is very interesting
but does not prove much.
You would never know it but "Herb" Porter is one of those amateur golf
champions. He has won several cups.
W'e want to congratulate the class on having been much more prompt with
their pictures than the Faculty were. -
If any of you consider the four dollar tax which you imposed upon yourselves
unjust, consider these figures:
Cost of printing ...... ...... S 273
Cost of cuts, about. . . . . . 240

This being an editor is great fun, if you like it. The trouble with a job of
that sort on the Gold Bug is that the other people have too much inertia.
Will wonders never cease! "Red', Goodrich went to the Junior Dance!
"Herb" Porter is our idea of what an ideal sucker should be like. While
gathering ads for"The Bugv he called on Tom Walsh. Tom told him he would
have to consult his wife as she ran that part of the business. And "Herb" swal-
"Ditty,' says he has a word of advice to those who may wish to follow in his
footsteps. Don't fail to do your English, for otherwise you will be sure to get
