These, my dears, were the elements which composed the minds of the patients. And under the power of hypnotic magic, the minds themselves spoke and, pulling apart the veiled curtain of the' future, revealed it to us. Listen, oh best beloved, and ye shall hear: V No. l. mind spoke, "I am Burton Goodyear who is enjoying life running around in my million dollarlimousine-making silver and gold-plated drums studded with diamonds." And he rolled in his Rolls-Royce into a mist. just then a familiar face came along., Ye Gods! It was George Kentfield. "Howdy, folks," he said, "What 'yah 'spose l'm doin'? I'm conductor for the biggest and best orchestra in the country. Gee, if Paul Whiteman were hcre, I'd put him in the shadef' and "Red" jazzed along. g My companion nudged me, "Who's that dame over there with the swell duds on?" l gazed, as a beautiful manikin swept by., My mouth flew open. 'clt was Laura Cooley!" I stuttered.. V We had reached Congress by this time. There, in the middle of the House stood Reno Smith delivering a speech. Ashe saw us he waved his hand in a con- descending and friendly way and babbled on. - No. 5 mind came up with a gracious air of a grande dame, "Do you by chance remember me?7' she laughed coyly.. MT was Ruth Hatch until my marriage to the second wealthiest man in the States." I gurgled a "how nice" as I took her hand. As we passed the Library I met a little person with a great many books. "To think that you went to school with that famous writer, Agnes Dodsf' some- one said. " Back in New York No. 7 mind took me aside. "Hello, you old bum, don't you know me? I used to be your 'side kick' but since I joined the Metropolitan, the manager won't let me even associate with the 'hoi poloi.' H Gosh! It was "Biggie." Following in the same footsteps as her papa, and just the image of him. "Lt-:tis go to the circus," she suggested. Bob Gunness, the famous soap-box orator, 1S to be the main feature tonight.

The flustered gentleman was Ralph Williams, L.L.D., Ph.D., M.A.N.B.N.G., etc., and was teaching Greek, Latin, Hebrew, German, French, and Mathematics, also how to catch butterflies at Shutesbury University. They usually raise blueberries in the summer and hl in the winter up there. Mrs. Marjorie Cook somebody or other is up there, too, teaching housewives how to beat up their husbands in an argument.

Pm Martin Davis and just as present am running a huge movie theatre in San Francisco, as well as being manager for the Yankees, and running the Dempsey, Jr. fights. Come down, sometime, and 1'll slip you some tickets." Fawcett, the next, has become a well-known Shakesperian actor. He makes a perfect Romeo, and plays golf as a side issue.

Stuart Edmund, soul No. 21, is the famous inventor of how to regulate the clocks in A. H. S. by radio time. He's also invented a non-drying fountain pen. When the next mind came along, we recognized her by her handwriting. It was Ida Ryder, the Secretary tothe President of U. S. A. Thanks to Miss Wagner. Our next mind should have been either a hard-boiled cop, a representative from Scotland Yard, a salesman or a patent leather-haired hero. He's quite an efficiency expert, we see. It was Earl Norton.

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. oysgo Q56 QQUM Qug Tm Jlferzfo ' HE following people received Pro Merito pins: Mary Bigelow, Marjorie Cook, Laura 'Cooley, Marion Dyer, Robert Gunness, Ruth Hatch, Dorothea Kidder, Ida Ryder, John Schoonmaker, Lulu Warner and Ralph Williams.

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, fullback. H 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.

Eno played a great game in the line, his 200--pound bulk smashing up our opponents' plays with clock- like regularity. 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 deal toward helping the team win.

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. Gf46f0 . . V . a . ...,.... , ., ..,- -:......,-....-.. .-'-- ff -...,..- ... -.,:G.,, ' Y ..m.- ........
