The policy of using school-life subjects in the class series was followed and
apparently pleased the student body for a great deal of enthusiasm was shown.
The Juniors defeated the Seniors by a 2-l decision. The Freshmen defeated the
Sophomores by a unanimous vote. This debate made the Freshman team eligible
for the championship battle, something which has not occurred recently, if at all.
In the contest between the Juniors and Fresh
the younger class offered determined and intelligent resistance.

HE Graphic this year was quite fortunate in the backing given it by the
school and the local business men. It had a substantial sum left over
from the year before, which, with the money received from the sub-
scriptions and advertisements, relieved it of many financial worries. r
The next problem to be met was the one securing contributions. This was'
especially difficult when it was hoped that the size of the Graphic could be increased.
Even the regular contributors to the various departments seemed loath at times to
have their work printed. However, as a general rule the quality of their work
made up for their tardiness.
The editorial department of the Graphic consisted of an Editorial by the
Editor and the Forum by his assistant. The literary department was made up of
themes and essays from the different English classes. The co-operation of the
teachers on this point was greatly appreciated. The news was frequently rather
antiquated by the time it reached the Graphic'r readers, but its accumulated copies
will make a fine history of anyone's four years in high school. Nlore of the jokes
than wished for were copied from other magazines, but this was the only deficiency
of the humor department.

LARGE squad of men reported to Coach Wiilliams on the first day of
practice. However there were few letter men left to form a nucleus for
a new team. Nevertheless they werepromising material,fellows who had
never come out before, Landry, Kelley, Koslosky, and the Edmond brothers.
But by the time the first game came around Coach Williams had molded a scrappy
but light team together. The lineup which was used practically all season was:
Bczclejfeld: Keedy, quarter, Foley and Landis, halves, Edmond or Kelley,
Line: Goodyear and Davis, Ends, Koslosky and Kentfield, tackles, Eno and
Harvery, guards, Gilbert, center.
SUMMARY or GAMES T
Our first game was played at Turners Falls against a clever team,but our boys
clearly out-played Turners at every period of the game. Foley and Kelley played
great games in the backfield and the entire line played well for one with so little
experience. Gilbert and Koslosky played fine games in the line, making some
jing tacleler. '
The next game was against South Deerfield on our home lot. Amherst passed
herself to victory Dime Landis caught the pass, that gave us the victory The

The next game New Salem came to Amherst and was sent back home with a
49 to O defeat pinned on them. Our backs showed fine open field running and runs
of 40 to 50 yards were made for touchdowns. A 'great many passes were com-
pleted for long gains. Keedy showing himself adept in throwing them, Foley
and Landis being capable receivers. The line showed up well smashing up plays
before they were well started. 1
Wvert Springfield- There A '
Amherst battled a heavier West Springfield team to a tie. Though the Amherst
backs were unable to pierce the Springfield line they sprang a passing attack that
dazzled their opponents and resulted in marching, to the goal where the team failed
in getting across. However the passing attack resulted in a touchdown early in
the first quarter. The game ended in a 6-6 tie. , T
A Athol at Amher51f+ 13 -7 A
Athol, fresh from a close game with Wfaltham High,journeyed to Amherst
for an easy victory. However our passes were too much for them and the nimble
foottwork of our backfield also gave them plenty to do. Passes, Keedy to Foley and
Keedy to Landis resulted in touchdowns. The Amherst line, though heavily out-
weighed, showed up well. ' '
. H Afmhefft at Orange .
Amherst played a good game at Orange but our forward passing was a bit off
and as a result we had to depart contented with a 6-6 tie. hfaurice Ed.mond showed
some fine line plunging. A pass Keedy to Foley resulted in our only touchdown.
. Hamp at Amhffflv
Amherst met and defeated Hamp our greatest rival,for the first time in seven
years. The game was played on a rain-soaked field and ankle- deep in mud,which
hampered the playing of both sides and especially theuse of the forward passin which
Amherst is at its best. "Bud" Jewett grabbed the opening kick-off and raced
S5 yards for a touchdown, in one ofthe prettiest runs seen on Blake Field in a long
time. Fromithen on the game was a nip and tuck affair. In the final minutes of
play, Hamp had the ball on our one yard line but was unable to push it across and
the game ended with Amherst in possession of the ball.
Thusended A. H. S. first undefeated football season. The team was given
a, banquet by the school. The school showed the best spirit in years and did a great

HE l928 baseball season found Amherst High a member of the Valley
League, along with Northampton, Chicopee, Greenfield, West Spring-
field and Westfield.
Coach Williams had a veteran squad to work with and we started the season
off with a winning streak, defeating. Hopkins twice and the Williston Olympic
once. The "Aggie" Freshmen and two-year men proved too much for us and we
dropped games to them.
Northampton was our first Valley League opponent. Both teams had a large
following at this game. Amherst obtained the jump on Hamp and started right in
to win her first league contest. Our opponents were surprised by the brand of base-
ball Amherst showed and their whole team made many errors which enabled
Amherst to pile up a comfortable lead. The final score was ll-6 in our favor.
The team journeyed to Chicopee for their next game. Gunness saw the large
high school building and turned pale at the thought of what Chicopee was going
to do to us. This proved our undoing. After a very erratic start Amhesrt settled
down and played a great game but could not overcome a six-run lead. Keedy
almost had a home run to his credit but was thrown out at the plate. "Barney,'
Goodyear made a spectacular one-hand catch of a long fly to left center with two
out and two on the bases. Gilbert hit a triple in this game. Davis and Foley also
played well for Amherst High. The final score was 7-5 against us.
