Haskins, Principal and Head of Mathematics Department. The school unanimously Wishes to congratulate Mr. Haskins for the splendid and effi- cient Way in Which he has managed the school during the past year. Hilda M. Allen, Household Arts. No teacher's skill is more Widely appreciated than Miss Allen's. For it is she Who feeds us hungry students. Lucile F. Baker, Head of English Department. Miss Baker has been one of our most loyal supporters in every Way. No one has been more Willing to help us. Alice W.Churchill, Head of Modern Language Department. As Miss Churchill,s students sail through college French with Hying colors, they look back and thank her for their success. Isabel C. Field, Head of History Department. Our dedicating this book to Miss Field shows how much We appreciate her good Work. And do We like her study periods! Charles E. Foth, History. Mr. Foth has done much to make the Dramatic Club a success this year. His ability is also shown by his endless knowledge of History. Marion Giles, English. Miss Giles' first year here has been indeed successful. We all like her friendly smile and her earnest manner of teaching. Goto Q E5'Ll'6 ' ' ' mmm Av-YA! A Kenneth L. Goding, Chemistry, Physics. Mr. Goding has the unique task of preventing explosions and other calamities. We certainly were thrilled during his play in assembly. Irene E. Hale, Head of Commercial Department. Miss Hale has proved a painstaking instructor. The boys try to jolly her, but do they succeed? Emil E. Keiler, Manual Training. Mr. Keiler has a knack of making boys of all ages enthusiastic about handicraft. Stacey A. Krasnecki, Science, Household Arts. We consider Miss Krasnecki a model chaperone. She has helped make our parties jolly by her presence. Donald S. Lacroix, Biology, General Science. We like Mr. Lacroix because instead of being a dignified teacher, he is a friendly, sociable advisor. Burnham L. Paige, Mathematics. We enjoy Mr. Paige's classes because of his ability to make work interesting. The boys find him a jolly companion. Anne K. Pewatka, Clerk. Miss Pewatka's knowledge of office work has aided Mr. Haskins considerably this year. It surely takes a cool head to direct the flood that pours into the office after school. Edith L. Pinnick, Physical Education for Girls. Miss Pinnickls year was cut short by an unforeseen illness. We extend to her our sincere hopes for her com- plete recovery. M. Donald Plummer, Head of Arts Department. In teaching us to appre- ciate the fine art of drawing, Mr. Plummer has made room 21 into an interesting picture gallery. Lillian M. Prendergast, Latin, French, History. Teaching French and Latin to young people is no easy task. Yet Miss Prendergast is a real friend of her students. Arthur G. Pyle, English. Mr. Pyle has shown us that he is very efficient in various activities. Tennis, hockey, debating and Hi-Y work are his hobbies. Harry C. Swift, Mathematics. No matter how busy he is, Mr. Swift can always take a few minutes to help us out of our numerous difficulties. Dorothy E. Ricker, Latin. hfiss Ricker coached the Senior Class Play so well that the cast fully expects to be playing on Broadway soon. L Marc Tarlow, Head of Music Department. We want to congratulate Mr. Tarlow for making us sing the school song in the way it should be sung. We'll recommend him as a gym teacher, too. Bertha S. Wickman, Commercial Subjects. If you can get away with anything in Miss Wickmanas classes, we congratulate you. Yet outside of school we know she's lots of fun. George E. Williams, Physical Education for Boys.

Have you seen those dimples of Polly,s? If you haven't, you want to. It won't take long to get a chance either, for she's always smiling. They say the best way to learn is to' ask questions.

She'll have you laugh- ing in a jiffy. If you have never been one of the little group around her at recess, you have missed a lot of good fun. Jane is a most convincing debater, tool We wish that We might have had her companionship all our four years. MARJORIF. MARY ATKINS ".Marge" South Amherst, Mass., February 11, 1914.

When it comes to poetry Marge is the genius of the class. This hobby has gained her the position of poetry editor of the Graphic. We have learned not to be surprised if she passes us a note asking what rhymes with "gloaming". You can begin Watching for a book entitled "Songs of South Amherst" by Marjorie Atkins. TESSIE MARY BAGDON Sunderland, Mass., April 25, 1913. Future: Undecided. Girls' Club 4, Girls' Basketball 15 Chorus 1, 2, 3. Tessie is one of the girls who can be depended upon to make the most of her school work. Ample proof of her faithfulness is given by the fact that she is a member of the Pro Merito Society and is often on the Honor.Roll. The teachers say We need more like her. 10' . . . 'Nl , .

However, we have discovered in this short time that she is brilliant and sweet and she is a big addition to 1931. Coming from out of town every day she has not been able to participate in outside school activities, but we know she would have been a booster if she could have been with us more.

Bert's stories and essays have pleased us as well as de- lighted the teachers. Her writings reliect her frankness, humor and originality. When the Gold Bug needed assis- tance it was Bert who gladly helped us along. It is this willingness to help which has made her so well liked.

Bert is small, but she can do a lot. Her range includes music, schoolwork and sports. Her industrious study has Won her a place in the Pro Merito Society, and her athletic ability has made her most important to the basketball team. Bert's unique giggle when she sees something amusing sets the whole class laughing. ' ROBERT SAMUEL BROWN iCB0b7, Amherst, Mass., December 6, 1911. Future: Smith School. A.H.S.A.A. 1, 2. Bob is the big, friendly fellow who is interested in mechanics of all sorts. Nothing seems to worry him, not even the teachers. After school We often see him out in his backyard tink- ering. And Bob has us all beaten when it comes to flying model airplanes. DOROTHY MAY CLEVELAND CCDOZSS Amherst, Mass., December 23, 1912. Future: Work. Girls' Club 1, 4, A.H.S.A.A. 1, 2, 35 Chorus 1, 2, 3.

She makes such fine talks we wonder if she doesnlt play Demosthenes and practice with a pebble on her tongue at home. She's a consciencious student and very faithful to any- thing she undertakes. She has a strange mixture of in- tersts, i. e.: world affairs, walking, literature, and dogs. WARD RAYMOND COOK "BiJc'uiZ" "Cookie" North Amherst, Mass., July 31, 1911. Future: College.

And at a party or dance, you are sure to find Cookie a courteous and popular gentleman. 13C GOLD 5116 -Zxwlg , . '- ' ' ' 4' X!

Phyl's cleverness has been prominent in many ways. Her skill at the piano has often eased the dispairing Mr. Tarlow. The cuts in the Gold Bug are examples of her drawing. And lucky is the lad who accompanies her to a P M dance for she likes the boys and the boys like her. HELEN PATRICIA DAVIS j, CCPat7, Amherst, Mass., December 18, 1913.

Peanut is the fellow Mr. Williams depends on to help carry our athletes to out-of-town games. Peanut likes to do this for it involves driving his "Chevy". And he certainly is good at driving that car. But Peanut is at his best when he is entertaining some admiring girl. Such popularity must be deserved.

We all like good times, but Mary especially enjoys good fun. That is, fun outside of school. Tennis is a great hobby of hers, and she's certainly a success in it. You'd better think twice before you say "ready" for her serves. Those laughing eyes are bewitching at times, Mary. CORNELIA FRANCES FOLEY "Conniz" Worcester, Mass., October 25, 1913. Future: Mass.

Yet there's a mischievous twinkle in her brown eyes and sometimes she's given a front seat in class. ROBERT LEO KNIGHTLY C4 Kayow Amherst, Mass., April 24, 1913. Future: Post Graduate.

If you see a blond gentleman with a brilliant red jacket, buzzing with plans for a stage setting, and dashing around the halls generally, it's Leo. Leo is the mainstay of the Dramatic Club.

These qualities are sure to be very much appreciated when she becomes a nurse.

Meet the heroine of our Junior Play! If you know the Judy of "Daddy Long- Legs", you know Kitty. She's just as misc-hievous and full of pep as Judy. But that pep doesn't get her to school on time, and it does get her into plenty of scrapes.

She is best known to the cooking and sew- ing classes where flaky pies and stylish dresses are created easily under her eflicient hands.

CWhy do they always put,Freshmen in room l3?Q The serious-faced man in charge of the room satisfied our curiosity as to his identity thus: "I am a gentleman by the name of Mr. Haskins." After much trouble and no little embarrassment we began to find our way about from room to room. Our first attempt at organization was to elect George Burnett as our class President. Richard Hubbard was chosen Vice-President and Leo Knightly, Sec- retary-Treasurer. We enjoyed Ancient History class especially for Miss Field treated us like intelligent students instead of green Freshmen. This kindly attitude of Miss Fieldls won our friendship, a friendship we have cherished throughout our High School years. For the first time in many years the football team was undefeatedgof course the credit for this was due to the brilliant Freshmen recruits. We proved ourselves not only "proudest in sports" but "highest in learning," for Doris Redman won in the Prize Speaking Contest, and our debating team was the runner-up in the championship debate. Even at this early period our officers urged us to pay our dues, for they had heard about the Gold Bug and were planning to make ours a success. So we finished our first year. NEXT soPHoMoREs Our Sophomore year, with John Howe as President, Doris Redman, Vice- President, and Eugenie Martin, Secretary-Treasurer, was a continued struggle trying to follow the advice that Miss Lingham had given us our Freshman year: "Whatever you do, don't be as conceited as the present Sophomore Class." Miss Todd, the exchange teacher from England, was an extremely popular member of the English department that year. Our first big project as a class was the program we arranged when Miss Marg- aret Lenigan, of the Emerson College of Oratory, gave a reading. We were well represented in the Prize-Speaking Contest for half of the con- testants were Sophomores. Again our athletes helped make the football team a success. The girls were not to be outdone for they were awarded second place in the gym exhibition. We were especially pleased when We defeated our Freshmen rivals in a close debate. 4 THEN JUNIORS Richard Green was elected President for our Junior year and proved to be a very helpful one. Richard Hubbard was Vice-President, and Eugenie Martin, Secretary-Treasurer. , 36 Aootofwm one .4-ix gg-,A as-',.,ikA-vlxw i JXJLJX gil A The Junior Play, "Daddy Long-Legs" by Jean Webster, was given in Stock- bridge Hall. The parts were well-taken and the play was a financial success. Our class distinguished itself dramatically also in the spring class plays when our play "The Show Actress" was awarded first place. This year we waited until basketball season to show our brilliance in athletics. We walked off with the Hampshire League pennant, our class being represented on the team by 'cFish', and "Teed," now famous veterans. The Prize-Speaking contest this year was not denied us for John Howe won it giving as his selection, "The Highwaymani' by Alfred Noyes. And we won the Interclass Debates. Now came our turn to show our social gifts for we sponsored both the Junior Dance, which was a costume affair, and the Senior Reception. This June dance, different from the usual commencement dance, was held in our own High School instead of in the Town Hall. The auditorium, halls, and lunch room were beauti- fully decorated and delicious refreshments were served during the intermission. NOW SENIORS It was just great to find ourselves Seniors last September for we had our choice of lockers and the underclassmen, out of awed respect for us, opened the doors and allowed us to enter the building first. The only fiy in the ointment was that we had to walk out first in assembly. Speaking of assemblies, the first one last fall was a memorable occasion for it was the first time that Mr. R. W. Haskins presided as Principal. He really did very well and has improved remarkably since then, especially in that he has stopped wearing bow ties too frequently. Seriously, we may say, and be assured of the agreement of all, that, in his unassuming way, he has been a fine principal, as en- thusiastic as we about our triumphs, patient with our failings, and sympathetic with our ambitions. We elected John Howe as our class President and he has proved himself a gifted leader, steering us away from the rocks on many occasions. Richard Green as Vice-President and Helen Ranney as Secretary-Treasurer, have worked hard. In November, when the Arthur Studios came from New York City to take our pictures, a great phenomenon occurred: Everyone was all dressed up for a whole week! It must have been a difficult week for the teachers for tense excitement was felt all the time and somehow Sunday manners had been put on along with Sun- day clothes and each one was willing that the other fellow should have the pleasure of reciting first! The Senior Dance, although few couples attended, was a success, for the orchestra and decorations were both well chosen. In the lnterclass Play Contest, the Senior play, "The Ghost Story" by Booth Tarkington, was the winning one. As a reward, the Dramatic Club ruled that it should be our entry in the Pawtucket competitive play contest. Miss Dorothy Ricker, who coached the play, did much to assure its success. We have enjoyed our four years in Amherst High School and are really sorry to leave in June. We feel sure that even many years hence, we will look back on our careers here and exclaim, "What fun we had in Amherst High!" 37 ,Xxx -fx-4-jx, JY, A G-O"-D two' E?jF"f' A Clay! Troplzeqf HE swinging doors of the Tatler Hotel on 45th Street, New York, just off Broadway, opened to admit a tall, slender, well-dressed gentleman of about 40 years. He carried a cane and a paper thrust under one arm. Having ordered his lunch he sat back and opened the paper. His meal was quickly d d h started to eat a friend came up and greeted him. serve ,an as e , . "Ohl Hello! Join me, wonit you?" he said. "I've had a hard day, meeting those trustees." ' l and both started to eat Then the A waiter brought the second man s mea - . first, glancing at the heading in the paper lying beside the plate of his friend, picked it up with a start of surprise and scanned the column. "Say, what do you think of that?'7 he asked his companion, pointing to the heading on the front column. "Read it. I'll be right back." He rushed to the telephone and dialed frantically. "Hellol" he said. c'Say, this is the Ritzy Night Club, isn't it? Well let me speak with the manager, Mr. Gowdey. Hello! Say, Kinky, this is Dick Green. Yes, well, Ilve got some news for you. You remember julie Novick. What? How could you forget him? You know Novick of Amherst High School, made principal a few years ago. Sure, . . , thatis him. Well, I just saw it in the paper. He's dead. Committed suicide. Yester- dayl Found by Robert Purnell, his janitor. You remember Bob Purnell. HThis is the best part of it, the paper said that he was found by Bob just breath- ing his last. He said he killed himself because everybody was so impossible, the pupils so dumb, and the classes so spiritless. He said he would be happy if any of the classes were half as good as the Class of 1931. He said there wasn't a better class than that one, and the succeeding classes became worse and worse, until it was unbearable, so he killed himself. Yes, I'll say it was some compliment for us. uGreat idea. You get all the ,3l boys that you can and Iill meet you at your table at ll.l5. Yes,George Simmons is with me now. Illl bring him along. Good-byef' He hurried back to his friend, who had read the news and was awaiting his return. "Well,George, "Dick said, c'Surprising, wasn't it? I just phoned Gowdey. WC,IC to meet him at his table at the night club about ll.l5. Have to be going now. I'1l see you later." Dick picked up his paper and was gone. Three-quarters of an hour later, he was viewing from back-stage a performance of "Ooh-la-lan, with the manager, Leo Knightly. "Say, Dick," Leo said, c'I'd like to have you meet one of my swell girls. She ought to be down in a minute. She's not in the final chorus so she can leave any time after the second act. Here she is now." Leo came forward and introduced the two. "Gpal, this is Mr. Richard Green of Green International Bank, Inc. Dick, this is Opal O'Hara. Have a good timelv And Leo disappeared. Leo was a good manager. "Hellol" Opal said pleasantly. :Really, haven't I seen you somewhere before?,' Dick asked. Sayf, she countered, 'cThat line was old when I graduated from Amherst C38 A ,YAWW Jx..-,v,xw,x A Q-or-.-D pw. sue High!

After greetings were over, they sat down and turned to Dick. "Say," said Bob, "How did you get this news about old Julie. 1 haven't seen it in any of the papers." "No,?, Dick answered. "You see 1 have a life subscription to the Amherrt Record and it was in that, that I saw the news. 1 thought we ought to get the addresses of all the '31'ers and send them to Johnnie so that he can send that Record to them " Yeh' said Polly But who s ohnnre? ohnnre Howe, 1 mean he s editor of the Amherft Record, now, you know Dick replied Reallv?

The local chapter has had the pleasant experience of visiting the Springfield Hi-Y several times this year. We were also honored by being hosts to a delegation representing the Girls' Club at a banquet on lVlarch 13. The year brings to a close many social and athletic activities enjoyed by Hi-Y members.

However, they do not receive pins until they are ranked as seniors. This year these Juniors are: Helen Benjamin, Arthur Bixby, Julia Koslosky, Hilda hlalmquist, Alfred Plantinga, Doma Raskevitz, Doris Redman, Esther Schoonmaker, and Harold Watts.

This proved to be a great asset, The Wind ensemble has been greatly improved by the addition of new members. Our director, Mr. Tarlow, has shown unending patience.

Ten lettermen responded besides a flock of other good prospects. The team developed rapidly under the tutelage of Coach George Williams and assistant Coach Bill Kelley. The line under Kelleyls coaching developed into one of the strongest in Western Massachusetts, only twelve points being scored against the team. However the backfield is greatly responsible for keeping the opponents' score low for they were constantly ready to back up the line. The record of games is as follows: A. H. S. 0 Turners Falls 6-Home Amherst High and Turners Falls High inaugurated the football season in Western Massachusetts when the Turners boys for the second straight year took Amherst by a 6-0 score. The game was played in a steady rain preventing both teams from using forward passes. Both teams were evenly matched which is shown by the fact that most of the game was played near midfield. A. H. S. 0 West Springfield 0--Home West' Springfield undefeated in 1929 and boasting of a strong team had to accept a scoreless tie with Amherst. In the final minutes of the game Vic Tidlund opened up with some passes and, as the game ended,the ball was in Amhert's pos- session on the opponent's 10-yd. line. This game was witnessed by one of the largest crowds ever to see a high school football game here. 62 ' 6 O L D X6 5 'lg Y-'Y-N.-v . JM-,fy ,v,A - -- --A U 6 P 1 . A. H.

However in some d p g t epartments our team looked weaker than Palmer's eam. A. H. S. 20 Deerfield 0-Away After poor starts in its first three games Amherst found itself in its ' h , game wit Deeafigld Hlgfhh Wood, Amherst sophomore quarterback, scored his team's first t . OUC OWU O 'E C SCQISOH. Trainor and Kelley scored touchdowns after makin 20 and 12-yard runs respectively. Kelley also made good on two kicks for extri ' t D fi ld poin s. eer e made two good bids to score but on both occasions were held by the strong Amherst line. A. H. S. 12 Chicopee 0-Away Playing on a muddy gridiron and on a cold wet day Amherst handed Chico ee . 7 P its first defeat of the season. Johnny Howe, old veteran,got that thrill that seldom comes to a lineman when he scooped up a Chicopee punt, blocked by Wolcott, and raced 15 yards to score. Kelley also scored when he crashed over from the 1-yard line to where the ball had been advanced by Cramer. Chicopee did not threaten our goal line once, at no time working past our 20-yard line. A A. H. S. 39 Northampton 0-Away Amherst High's powerful gridiron combination completely routed its most ancient rival, Northampton,by probably the largest score they have ever pinned onto this traditional foe. Wood and Tidlund scored two touchdowns each. Kelley also scored two touchdowns, one coming after a sixty yard run on an intercepted "Hamp" pass. Kelley added one point after a touchdown while Wolcott added two by the placement method. "I-lamp" never threatened and were able to make only one first down throughout the game. A. H. S. 6 Arms Academy 6-Away Minus the services of three regulars, Amherst High plugged along through four periods of hard football and came out with a tie with Arms Academy of Shel- bu rne Falls, before a large Armistice Day crowd. Trainor paved the way for Am- herst's score with a 35-yard run placing the ball on the l-yaid line from where Kelley went over. The game was in Amherst's favor until the last few minutes when Arms scored. Amherst had a wealth of good material for the 1930 team. Captain Kelley was outstanding in the backfieldg his wonderful interference and fierce tackling gave the team a great deal of confidence. With such men as Tidlund, Russell, Cook, Tramor, Wood, and Cramer rounding out the backf1eld,the team couldn't go wrong. Pray, at center,had uncanny ability in detecting opponents plays. Wolcott, at tackle, was always on the job. Grandonico and Bixby, guards, proved no easy mark to their foes and Howe and Toll, alternating at tackle, were tough men. Keedy and. Good- now playing at the ends were at the end of several passes. Sunderland, which has given Amherst High many good managers, furnished.Hub Hubbard for us this year. With plenty of good material on the second and third teams A. H. S. should round out another good team. And here's to the SUCCCSS Of the 1931 team' 63 Q-ova..-D 5'U'f-5' all Q' X1 Q gffN, -fs , . .,M,,, " V ' ' C-v 4f'-'fx-'C"--4-J,N""s"-Iiwlk fawsji Bafkefball AST year Amherst High Won the Hampshire League Pennant and the chances for another championship team this year were bright because of the promising talent that turned out for the team. Captain Tidlund, Johnny Pray, and Teed Kelley, veterans, formed a nucleus for the team. Jack Trainor, Wis Kelly, and Chris Keedy were first team forecourt performers. Dean Glick had a chance to show he was a player of no mean ability when Pray became ineligible. Fred Sievers,a freshman, played several games in the back court and proved he Was capable. Bill Casey was the hard working manager. Here are the scores and features of each game: A. H. S. 14 Clarke School 19-Away The Clarke School basketball team playing its second game defeated Amherst in a hard fought game. Capt. Tidlund tallied 7 points. A. H. S. 44 Orange High 9-Home A. H. S. ran Wild over Grange, Trainor scoring 15 points and Keedy close behind with 12. Webster of Orange popped a neat goal for Amherst. A. H. S. 24 Alumni 17-Home An Alumni team with such stars as Foley and Fawcett of M. S. C. and Sievers, Landiy, Joy and others in its lineup could not check the team of its Alma lvlater. A. H. S. 35 Orange High 15-Away In a return game A. H. S. again took measure of Orange with an easy victory. Teed Kelley was banished from the lloor five minutes after the game had started. 64 .avjxeafx i L X-, -IT Nl .Ig T """Zi"x-'Y . JY-'xv1X 21 G M A. H.

A. H. S. 16 Deerfield High 25-Home Before a large crowd Amherst dropped its second league tilt to Deerfield. Deerfield led at half time 17 to 5. Amherst came back strong in the last half. - A. H. S. 11 Stockbridge School 18-M. S. C. Displaying a poor brand of basketball, Amherst was toppled by a Weak Stock- bridge team. Teed Kelley and Tidlund played steady ball. A. H. S. 13 M. S. C. Freshmen 26-Home Amherst High dropped its third game in a row to the strong M. S. C. Freshman team. The Amherst team lacked a scoring punch. A. H. S. 34 Smith School 11-Away With Jack Trainor piling up 23 points, more than double the Smith score, Amherst High had little difficulty in trouncing the Smith School five. A. H. S. 14 Hopkins Academy 13-Home Before a crowd that packed the gym to capacity, Amherst defeated its oldest basketball rival, Hopkins, in an overtime game. The game was rough but fast and clean. Tidlund's foul shot in the last second tied the score at 12 to 12 to send the game into an overtime period. And then Teed Kelley's basket vvon for Amherst. A. H. S. 34 Arms Academy 29-Away Amherst High journeyed to Shelburne Falls and returned with a victory over Arms Academy. Amherst Was behind 17-5 at first quarter and 19-14 at half. A. H. S. 18 Smith Academy 16-Home Going into the last quarter of their game on the short end of a 14-7 score, Amherst iallied and defeated Smith Academy. Teed Kelley's long shot proved to be the Winning marker. A. H. S. 21 Hopkins Academy 16-Away Amherst High in a return game managed to continually lead and finally down Hopkins Academy. As a result of the Win A. H. S. took undisputed position of first place in the Hampshire League. A. H. S. 9 Deerheld High 7-Away In its hardest fought game of the season, Amherst High defeated Deerfield High by probably the lowest score ever played in the league. Despite the rough- ness, the game Was clean, only three fouls being called on both sides. A. H. S. 14 Springfield Trade School 34-Away Weakened, by the absence of Bert Glick, regular center, Amherst was no match for Trade School, the city champions of Springfield. Sievers played Well at center as did Squeek Munson, playing his first game on the varsity. A. H. S. 19 Smith School 7-Home By Walloping Smith School, Amherst High captured the Hampshire League title for the secondisuccessive year. The Amherst defense was superb. The Hampshire League championship remains with Amherst High for a second successive year. This year's championship is Amherst's third since the league Was formed in 1920. 65 F myths ,gk -4i!S,4,.,1xY IS, Ag,,,.A C "s"2W""s'JL ii -XIX "- 1 1 6-ow.-D 5'U'5 3515665111 LTHOUGH Coach Williams was greeted with six veterans at the first base- ball practice, the prospects for a good team at Amherst High were only fair. Dihlman and Trainor, vvho saw a little service on the mound last year, are the only reliable twirlers. The loss of Landry and Landis from last year's pitching staff has been greatly felt. Cook from last year's team holds down the second base position, and Bixby, a heavy hitter, is playing right held. The initial sack is being covered by Hubbard, a newcomer on the team. Keedy is playing at the hot corner and Wood, although a Weak batter, is playing Well at short. Kosakowski, a freshman, and Smith, a junior, did the catching until Captain Tidlund became eligible. He Was ineligible at the start of the season. Cramer, Sievers, Green,and Morin,all freshmen,played a little in the outfield. Teed Kelley has been shifted from short to left field. Wiggle Pease is the snappy manager. The results of games played and the remainder of the schedule follows: Amherst 2 Northampton High 6 Home Amherst 7 Deerfield High 4 Home Amherst 8 Hopkins Academy C11 in.j 9 Home 66 EBLRC5 6-O'l.-D fsxx V22 ,--E-!R',g,ZxwJX Y 3 -A I ILX Q.-'fx-pds.-Jggrrr Aaxvlx gil Amherst Amherst Amherst Amherst Amherst Amherst Amherst 5 S Arms Academy South Hadley High Hopkins Academy South Hadley High Arms Academy Deerfield High Bellows Falls QVt.j High 14 10 Home Away Away Home Away Away Home Cheer .Qgaderf S long as can be remembered Amherst High has been represented by only one cheerleader, but in the fall of 1929, Julie Novick, Ollie Wolcott and Franny Goodnow, decided that A. H. S. needed a few more cheerleaders. So they practiced diligently on the cheers and worked out new motions for them. At the Alumni game, the first game of the 1930 basketball season, they made their appearance. From then on they held "pep-meetings" and introduced a new cheer once in a while. A well organized cheering section and a spirited school re- sulted. This year too, the school has backed up the teams wonderfully. Look at the Amherst High Athletic record hung up this year and last, two crack football outfits, two consecutive Hampshire League championship basketball teams and two peppy baseball teams. Does this prove anything? Amherst High has plenty of spirit. Let's,keep it up. ii 67 . . . W' M. Q- Ll 'G W,c..MAQ,fi,1-ff ffm... T..

The fellows were enthusiastic and expressed their desire for such an organization. After much discussion the name uVarsity Clubnwas chosen.

Wolcott Secretary- Trearurer ......i.,...................,... . .... Francis H. Goodnow The organization of the Varsity Club marks the first time that Amherst High has had an organization for lettermen. Qnly fellows who have earned a letter in football, basketball, or baseball are eligible for membership. A student automati- cally becomes a member of the club on receiving his letter. Anyone who becomes ineligible is dropped from the club. The club7s purpose is to prevent ineligibility among the players and to en- courage Stowell Cup competition. Although this is a new organization, the mem- bers ofthe Varsity Club are confident that it will serve to maintain a high standard for Athletics in Amherst High. 69 r ,XSIL--15,127 ,A f Y A-2 Wy. 604.-D 5'UAlG Qffutogmplzf 70 'lg Ill' iii-L-D Eb-L1-C5 vfuiograplzf 71 .jk - Y' -fS.4,,2'SY1'YY A W ' I -1.-IA'-nv'-.Jk, , 7g-1,141 ,, '53, ..
