A -DOROTHY MOR1 EY A 11936 STUDENT TOOKS ARCOUND I-IIM I .mmyl AM seventeen. I have reached the age when my own little town should be a matter of interest to me. And it is, when I stop to think about it. But there are many ideas abroad that confuse me. Men talk of war. I cannot understand why we should have war, why thousands of young men should die and thousands of hearts be broken merely to glorify one leader or to enrich one nation. Nothing good can come of war. It is nearly twenty years since the great World War, and today there are hungry children and jobless fathers who are suffering because men were blind enough to think that by war they could find peace. When business and industry are ruined by war, what peace can man find in empty pockets and crying babies? What peace is there in families whose fathers are killed, whose brothers are crippled? What peace has been gained when man can forget so quickly the hell of war and be eager again for blood? There are many things other than war that I find hard to explain. I cannot under- stand the flounderings of governments and governors, except that I see now how weak and futile they are in comparison with the idealistic conceptions I once had. I But as I have lost my faith in our so-called "important" people I have found an ever-increasing delight in knowing the people around me. To me the greatest thing in our existence is beauty, especially the beauty of silent companionship. True, there are persons who bore us, disgust us and hurt us. But there is something in every human soul that is wonderful and something in every person that is beautiful. It is fascinating to watch people, to wonder what they are thinking and to imagine their histories. Perhaps it is fortunate that our thinking is done privately. ' This delight of mine in people is one that the world has always known. I have another love that is just as old. I love the stars, the trees, blue-shadowed snow, the wind -all this wonderful world that God has lent us. Maybe it is because I'm only seventeen that the Hrst star can make me feel so queer. Perhaps, when I am older, I wonit care to watch the moon over the pines. Maybe I won't write poems about the first robin or laugh because I'm so glad the sun is shining. Maybe I won't. But I can be glad now that such things delight me, and that I have all my life before me in which to see new sights, to hear new sounds and to find new interests. -KATHERINE DORAN. LIFE The sun rose Bright and glorious Out of the morning. It faded In dark oblivion Into a dreary sky. .5 -A. HARRINGTON. MY READING HE person who said, t'Good books are good friends," was entirely right. Books can teach us many things. Books on travel can show us the beauties of other countries as well as our own. Books on the lives of great men can show us incidents which oc- curred in the lives of other people. Monthly magazines tell us of contemporary affairs in our country and in other countries. " The "Royal Road to Romance," written by Richard Halliburton, is one of the best books on travel I have ever read. In it are vivid pictures of many countries he has visited. He tells of the dangers encountered in climbing the Alps, of taking pictures Qagainst the lawj of the Rock of Gibraltar, and of outwitting the police and keeping the pictures. Through this book I learned of the places I should like to Visit if ever I go to Europe. Another book on travel which gives a more complete picture of the nature of people is the book, "Will Rogers." I Will Rogers was a man who liked to joke with everybody. He knew that the way a person takes a joke reveals a great deal about his nature. One incident in Will Rogers' trip 'around the world showed the nature of one of the great personages of the world, Edward VIII, when he was the Prince of Wales. Rogers called him a good sport because he could take a joke. Both of these books tell about interesting places and people, as do many of our monthly magazines, but I mention especially the Reader's Digest. The Reader's Digest is a magazine from which a person can learn, in a language easily understood, of the happenings in all parts of the country. This magazine includes, also, reviews of current books. It brings impressions, opinions and pictures of things interesting both in this country and abroad. I believe that these two books and this magazine have taught me a great deal about travel, people of other countries and the happenings of the day. If I were to select three titles which I have most enjoyed, I should name, without hesitation: i'The Royal Road to Romance," "Will Rogersv and "The Reader's Digest." -WILLIAM McINTosH. LEAVES Leaves are like men Who live on this great earth, They turn their backs on threatening storms To dance in glee and mirth. In spring they come out fresh and green New to the ways of life, By summer time they are full-sized Half through this world of strife. But Autumn is their mardi-gras They gain the height of glory. Before the icy winds begin They'Ve almost told their story. In youth they swing with grace and ease And nimbly whirl around, But in their age, like us, they shake, And die upon che ground. -DOROTHY ONE SPRING Through bluet fields the cattle pass, Leaving the violets in the grass Inviolate and all alone Except for blossoms white as foam. Grey horses plow a copper field, To make its russet treasure yield A barley crop or golden corn, For later colts or calves new-born. The ploughboy whistles like the lark, Hailing the spring from dawn to dark. The horses like his merry tune, Recalling clover dells in June. Along the river lies cowslip gold, As if I-Ieaven's floor had grown too old, And cracking near the weakened edges MORLEY Had dropped bright pieces on Earth's sedges. -MARIELY BAKER. rn JENDSHJUP REAL friend is one who is sympathetic, encouraging and reliable. He is one to whom a person feels he can go for real comfort, help or inspiration without being laughed at or talked about when his back is turned. A friend shares pleasures as well as troubles. He encourages another when he is on the right track, turns him to some- thing better when he is on the wrong track and brings him out of the depths when he is in despair. But friendship's greatest service is to understand, to sympathize and v to encourage. Sometimes it seems that a person's best friend is his dog, for that animal wistfully watches his master leave in the morning and eagerly awaits his return in the afternoon. He seems to understand perfectly when his master is happy or downcast. His simple, quiet way of offering sympathy may be more comforting than useless and meaningless words. Everyone needs friendship. Without it a person soon sinks into the depths for lack of encouragement and sympathy. Not only in times of trouble, but also in times of success, one needs a friend. A little encouragement accomplishes considerable when a fellow is just starting up the hill of achievement. A friendship may give the man on the hilltop courage to climb the next hill, even though he slip back into the depths between the climbs. The best way to be sure of having friends is to be one. What kind of a friend are you? Are you merely an acquaintance, or are you one who knows enough of life to be able to understand others' feelings, failings and successes and to sympathize with them? a -ELIZABETH PARSONS. THIS KIND lf IMMORTAIITY ll SH ULD lLlIlKlE l.i.Q..-.M HERE are two kinds of immortality. One is religious, the immortality of the soul. Some people believe that after death one's spirit lives forever as a separate con- scious personality. The other kind of immortality is everlasting fame. I should like this kind of immortality. There are many different paths to this goal. The qualities necessary are indomitable courage and great ability. I want to be a supreme master, a genius who will contribute to the world something that will add to its sum of human knowledge and happiness. There are different kinds of geniuses on earth and different ways of becoming immortal. The artist, like Michelangelo or Raphael, lives forever because he portrays great truth in beauty. The writer, as Shakespeare or Milton, lives through the ages for his originality and universality. The spiritual leaders, Christ, Mohammed, Buddha, are immortal because they shape human destiny by teaching men how to live better with themselves and their fellow beings. The scientists, Pasteur, Darwin and Koch, will never be forgotten because of their services to mankind. Their wonderful work has done something really beneficial for the world. The qualities that made these men immortal are in their characters and abilities. Indomitable courage, patience, painstaking care, bravery and perseverance are necessary. All geniuses must have,.of course, great ability. Artistic works must have an 'tupliftf' a signihcant meaning, to live forever. This meaning must be for all times and in all places. Interest in human nature is indispensable to all artists, especially to the scientist. Without the needs of mankind at heart, che scientist will not sacrifice life, fortune, everything, to help mankind. Immortality comes to scientists, artists, writers and 'spiritual leaders. If these have the necessary qualities of character and ability, they will forever be remembered. To me the scientist is one of the greatest artists because he aids in alleviating the sufferings of humanity and cuts throughmdarkness to discover new brilliant light. I should like to be a genius, a scientist, because I want to do something to improve the world. --MARIELY BAKER. the Soul. irate Con, lould like F qualities if master, Jf human becoming P0fffo'S the ages Buddha ve berrer och. will work has lbiliries. 1666553753 Hupliifyu nd in all 5CignIiSI- fortune' 1:55 have To utfcflflgs 3 likf fo lil' A POET 6 A poet sings of names on sand, While glistening Waves are singing to the sea And gulls are dipping into rising swells, And salty Winds are blowing to the land.

' I'd like to see the sun asleep And watch him gently glow I Wish I had Aladdin's lamp To really let me go. -KATHERINE DORAN. .11-Ql- FROM A PINE TREE In the tip of the tallest pine tree I lay on blue green leaves, And I felt like a cloud that had strayed there Left stranded by the breeze. And I forgot all earthly things While the Wind cried out so loud, And all I saw Was a blue bird plunging Into a red gold cloud. -MARIELY BAKER.

ROBERT EVERSON WHO HAS BEEN WHO 1932. -1936 FRESHMAN YEAR Officers: Harding Jenkins, president, John Hamlin, vice-president, Katherine Doran, SCCI'Ct2I'Y-tI'C3Sl11'CI'. Important Events: Freshman Reception. Will you ever forget it? Our debut into High Officers: School affairs. A large polished floor on Which the three upper classes danced While we meek little children sat on the edge and gazed in amazement until the evening was half over. Mid-Year Exams. Surprisingly mild they were in comparison with the picture painted! Still, We felt greatly relieved when they ended. "Elmer.', Our first attempt at drama. We still think we should have won and we place all the blame for our defeat on the coat that refused to act as a coat and stubbornly resisted all attempted entrances in either sleeve. Finals. What was a little thing like a final exam to a Freshman? VACATION! SQPHOMORE YEAR Harding Jenkins, president, William Barton, vice-president, Katherine Doran, secretary-treasurer. Important Events: Dances, Dramatics, Debating, Sports. By this second year we had Ojfieers: our part in the life of the school, and were no longer the ones who stood and Watched. We were not afraid to dance, our production for the Inter- Class Play Contest was a good one, and our other public appearances in debat- ing and prize speaking began to look more promising. Football, baseball, basketball stars were in the making. Scholastic standing became more thought- provoking. We were preparing for the two harder years ahead. YEAR I Everson, vice-president, Katherine Doran, JUNIOR Harding Jenkins, president, Robert secretary-treasurer. Important Events: Junior Play-"Captain Applejackf' Try-outs were in October. For Weeks we rehearsed, counting the hours until December 15. As the time approached, excitement grew, lessons were neglected, no one thought of any- thing but "Captain Applejackf' The grand night arrived, an ordinary night to most of the World but a Wonderful one for us, for the play was a success, a huge success, and the class of 1936 had a large blue feather in its cap. Officers: I Junior Prom. May 11. The auditorium was hung with purple and gold streamers. There were huge bowls of flowers around the room and dozens of balloons that had nearly exhausted the strength of those who blew them up. To start the dance with a flourish, there was a Grand March and from then on, the evening was perfect. Inter-Class Play Contest. "Extra". Harding Jenkins was the coach and we won second place which made us feel very proud of our class. Finals. Exams are no fun but we have to have them. The class squirmed through with its usual groan of despair. With serious plans for the next year,s work, we began to talk of jobs and colleges and to realize that to choose what to do is really quite a dificult task. Senior Reception. Again we showed our ability as hosts. This time we decorated in a simple fashion with nothing but flowers. What more is needed for a dance in June? SENIOR YEAR Harding Jenkins, president, Dana Frandsen, vice-president, Katherine Doran, secretary-treasurer. Important Events: Senior Year-The most important event during High School. Now we were the leaders--the mighty Seniors. Senior Dance. November. Although the class knew well how to manage the material preparation for a dance, some of its members seemed never to have recovered from the shock of that Hrst Freshman Reception and, even as Seniors, timidly avoided a waxed floor. Mid-Year Exams. An old story now. Mid-Winter Term. Filled to the brim with school work, Gold Bug, Graphic,-all the activities into which an upper class man finds himself plunged. Inter-Class Play Contest-We won! The joy that was shown back stage would be hard to express, and Miss Weeks was as happy as we for the play was hers. She had not only coached it but written it as well. Spring Term. With examinations and graduation looming close in the future, we settled down, as much as one can in the spring, to really study. College entrance exams are terrifying things when viewed from a distance, and final examinations in High School have to be undergone some how. Graduation Week. Bursting with activity, excitement and joy, with a little sadness too. Graduations are like birthdays and weddings, happy, uncer- tain occasions when things change from past to future all at once, and every one considers it natural to shed a tear or two. Class picnic-Monday. Class night-Tuesday. A great deal of excitement. It seems queer to be so near the end of things, doesn't it? Graduation. A great hall filled with people. On the stage, all of us, looking dignified but young in spite of our fine clothes and serious faces. A man hands each of us a small square of paper. It's all over. Senior Reception. Our last High School dance and as much fun as all the others. Everything seems best while we are leaving it behind us. Alumni Banquet.. No longer students of Amherst High School but Alumni. June 20.

PARSONS HE Declaration of Independence says that all men have equal rights in the pursuit of happiness. First of all, what is happiness? Happiness is a satisfied state of mind. A happy person is one who enjoys living. Although there may be many reasons why different persons enjoy living, there are a few essentials that we all agree are indispensable. In the first place, a person must learn to enjoy and appreciate simple things. Our world of today is so complex that we rush from one thing to another without taking sufficient time to know the beauty of simplicity. There is a legend describing a kingis experience: When he asked advice of a sorcerer, he was told to seek out the happiest man in his kingdom and buy his shirt. After a long search, the king found the man he considered the happiest man in his realm and tactfully asked the privilege of buying his shirt. Imagine his surprise when the subject announced that he had no shirt. Some people who have few belongings and no desire for more are happier than others who have plenty and want still more. Another key to happiness, not unlike simplicity in tastes and desires, is modesty. A person who is modest usually forgets himself in his thought of others. He does not talk constantly about himself and his achievements. He tries never to make others unhappy or discontented as the result of his own successes. The habit of self-reliance is an important key to happiness. To be happy a person must rely upon himself. He must not depend on others or lose confidence in himself. A young college graduate asked his professor for a sentence, summing up an ideal of conduct. The reply was, "If you lay yourself on a shelf, the world will not stop to take you down." A person who is proud gets a great deal more satisfaction out of doing something by himself than he does from receiving help. We have had many ex- amples in American history of people who have tried doing things themselves and suc- ceeded. John Philip Sousais life is an example of the triumph of a boy who had to fight against great odds in order to have a career in music. The battle of Clara Barton to win recognition for herself and for women is another example of self-reliance. The lives of Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Jacob Riis and many others, all remind us of valiant struggles. The surest way to be happy is to keep busy about a Variety of things. One fas- cinating pastime is studying human nature. From such a study, one learns many things, he becomes more sympathetic, he learns the faults and virtues of others, he learns what activities make persons happy. A person may be interested in animals as well as in humans. Many animals are quite as interesting as people. A dog, for instance, has many very human characteristics. I-le seems to understand sometimes when a human can't. He seems to be able to sympathize often better than a person. But there are many other interests to fill a person's spare time, besides studying people and animals. There are always books, on any subject under the sun, which are instructive as well as entertaining. By studying and enjoying all these things: nature, art, music and literature, a person not only makes himself happy, but is able to share his happiness with others. Another key to happiness is courtesy, a regard for the feelings of others. It is one of the most important qualities an individual can possess. Those who are courteous avoid many little encounters which may cause ill feeling. In their concern for the comfort of others, they forget themselves. Sometimes, although little acts of courtesy may seem unnecessary, they are very significant to the ones for whom they are intended. Furthermore, a courteous consideration of the rights and opinions of others makes a person more congenial and popular, and may make him more successful in life. Generosity is another quality necessary for happiness. The principle of generosity is taught to children early in life by fond parents who want to insure their children's happiness. Although we all learned this trait years ago, we need now to become more than ever conscious of it. A truly generous person is kind and considerate. A person who gives away something of his own gains the joy of living. This is illustrated by "The Vision of Sir Launfalv and is summed up in its last two lines: "Who gives himself with his alms feeds three, Himself, his himgering neighbor, and Me." Besides giving alms, a person may be generous with his time. Some persons always seem to have time to help others. Perhaps the most important key to happiness is Service to others. Service means helping one's fellow men to enjoy life more than would otherwise be possible. Service consists of loving deeds for which the greatest opportunities, perhaps, are found in our homes. Even the simplest acts of kindness and thoughtfulness there help to develop an individual's personality. I read a story recently which illustrates this point: A young girl's grandmother was blind and so could not see the beauties of nature or the faces of people with whom she came in contact. The girl became the eyes of her grand- mother. She described vividly everything around the house and people who came to see her. She also tried to make everything convenient for her grandmother. Always she took care that all the old lady's clothes were hung in definite places in her room so that she could dress and undress easily. Stools and articles over which she might stumble were moved. Her Crocheting or knitting materials were always in the same positions around her chair on the porch. All these thoughtful acts helped to make the grandmother's life more happy. This happiness in turn gave the girl the satisfaction of knowing she had helped someone else. She might have gone on with her own business, but willingly she took a few minutes out to do the small, unselfish things, and the old grandmother was much happier being able to depend upon herself than she would have been had others been obliged to wait on her. Service may also be given by kind words. Spoken! to a person in need or in trouble, a few kind words may accomplish a great deal, may give a man courage to try again. One who speaks these cheering words receives his reward when he sees the other person, almost ruined, finally make a success of himself. Service may consist of doing one's work efficiently and well, and of following certain hobbies or special interests. A person in his spare time often gains enough information about some subject to be able to give im- portant and helpful suggestions or advice to others interested in the same fields. Happiness should not be a definite goal, because it comes only as an indirect result of other efforts. A person who sets out to find happiness in amusement parks, at par- ties, dances and other varieties of gay entertainments will never find true happiness. True happiness is not of that glamorous or conspicuous nature, rather, it is a result of making other people happy. By having a wide variety of interests, one is able to give advice or suggestions to those who need them, by being simple and modest, a per- son may help others to appreciate the beauties of nature and simple things, by possessing the qualities of generosity, courtesy and self-reliance, one is best able to be of service to others, and bring home to himself, thereby, the greatest measure of lasting happiness. fafalfm 0 n '-5 00 A i'l3'10'4 ,ew ' -'Blu -af, nv' Eaihfmtfifilinlf -we r - F 'Tv W" 9,99 gg? WHO is SUPERIOR? QVALEDICTORYJ HARDING B. JENKINS MONG the thousands graduating now from schools and colleges everywhere, there are certain boys and girls destined to become superior men and women. What are the qualities one must possess in order to become superior? Are they characteristics we inherit, or may they be acquired? Can we find any text book or college course that hopes to teach the required qualifications? We find men and women in obscure corners quietly doing work that is outstanding in its influence on the world. Quiet, modest people with no desire for fame or applause, seem to have the subtle something that reaches out and affects the world and makes their own actions superior. We all know men who have become famous through some spectacular deed of high courage. A sudden flash of daring brings them the applause of the world. Does such a feat make a man superior? We see great credit given to men who have attained success in business careers, amassed great fortunes, or worked up through the maze of politics to a ,position of power. But are wealth and political fame to be counted as signs of superiority? A When we try to discover the secret of superiority from a study of men who have distinguished themselves, we uncover a wonderfully fascinating field. We are amazed at thellarge number of such men, and confused when we attempt to choose individuals as examples in our study. Although they come from all classes and walks of life, cer- tain prevailing personal traits seem common to them all. The study of these characteristics is very appealing, especially when we find them in people we meet in everyday life. A certain, steady, definite purpose is the first out- standing characteristic that seems to give to the life of all these persons a clear and definite objective. Enthusiasm and perseverance dominate their actions. Generosity and cooperation make them beloved personalities. They are alert to opportunities for general good rather than for personal prestige. They do their own thinking. They are original, and when they win they make a permanent gain. Their attitude is sympathetic. With them unselfish service is a habit. These men and women do not seek publicity or fame, they seem to be indifferent to, and even a trifle impatient of, public recognition. Just, modest, self-disciplined workers, with no trace of haughtiness, they remain, no matter how loudly the world applauds. Society has recently lost a distinguished scientist through the death of Dr. Lafayette Benedict Mendel. Dr. Mendel graduated from Yale College at the age of nineteen, and, three years later, received his Ph.D. degree. He spent the next thirty-eight years in teaching and in intensive investigation. He gradually worked out through his experi- ments in the chemistry of foods and nutrition, facts of lasting value to the world. He wrote three books on nutrition and over three hundred published articles. This achieve- ment was what the world saw and recognized, but there was something far more im- portant in Dr. Mendel than the ability to investigate and work out scientific facts. He attracted to his classes students with an interest in medicine, bacteriology and chemistry, and inspired them to delve deeper and more intensely into research work until they Hnally found their particular field of interest. He made it pleasant to learn. Was Dr. Mendel superior because he made outstanding contributions to nutritional physiology? Or was the subtle "something" which made his students respond to his leadership and find hard, exacting work reasonable and attractive the factor that made him superior? Superior he must have been to win this tribute written by Graham Lusk: "He has been the guide, philosopher and friend to many young men and women, he has encouraged them to walk by themselves when they were able to stand alone, and he has given wise council in times of difficulty. Herein he has shown himself as one of the great teachers of his timef' Ivan Pavlov, the Russian scientist, enjoyed an enormous prestige the world over. What characteristics made him so popular when he appeared in Leningrad, London, Boston and elsewhere? By reputation and achievement he was an outstanding scientist, but why was he so loved? His personality must have held the secret of his superiority. He was brilliant, but he was modest, he was excessively impulsive, but he held himself down to his work with marked severity. He was passionately enthusiastic over his work, but he schooled himself to slowly accumulate knowledge through extreme patience. The mastery of himself was the secret of his superiority. Our own beloved Richard Byrd must possess "superior" characteristics to accom- plish what he has. He is above the great majority in cooperative qualities, devotion to duty, initiative, judgment and self-control. Yet he does not take himself too seriously. He feels that his work is relatively unimportant compared with contributions to civiliza- tion that are being made by tens of thousands of hardworking individuals. He takes no stock in "this hero business." He has the devotion and loyal friendship of all men who work with him and the reputation of always giving to life more than he takes. He gives the world an example of a life dedicated to a purpose. Few can live the years of high adventure or dream the dreams "Dick" Byrd has dreamed, but anyone can honor the qualities of character he has shown and give him a place in the list of superior men. Recently I heard the story of two brothers who became very successful men, each in his own line. One turned his knowledge and keen ability toward the production of well-known and much advertised foods and so made a great fortune. He enjoys a life of luxury and gives away money generously. The world applauds and gives him notable credit. He is successful. The other brother is a doctor who has given his life to medicine and personal service. He has no fortune, but nearly thirty children have been helped through school and started on their way by him. Quietly he devotes his time and money to humanity. He has written books that are the result of his research work in nutrition. He is loved. Wfhich man is superior? Coming nearer home we are privileged to meet as neighbor and friend a man who is known as one of America,s greatest poets. Reading his poetry, we f1nd our own feel- ings put into words, only more truly and deeply than we realized they could be pic- tured. We are grateful to him for voicing the beauty, the logic and friendliness which we find in our daily lives. He makes us feel that he knows us, our New England background, our innermost problems, and in knowing us so well, he must be one of us. We find sincerity, sympathy and understanding. He has written a poem that describes our lives tonight. We are facing the roads of life with ideals and ambitions. But no one knows the wisest course. Years from now when we look back and wonder if we have acquired even a glimmering of these qualities that make for superiority, we may well recall this poem of Robert Frost's: I "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowthg Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same. And both that morning equally- lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."

Soon after graduation I it becomes merely a souvenir, to be dusted off each season and returned to its customary resting-place. In the hope that the 1936 Gola' Bug may escape this fate, we have tried this year to compile a book that is not simply a collection of pictures, but that has between its covers reminders of all the reasons why we feel especially fortunate to have gone to school in a town as rich in literary traditions as we all know Amherst to be. l We have included some of our own literary efforts in the belief that we may, in the future, be interested to look back upon our ideas of 1936. 1 l Our work has been pleasant. We are especially indebted to our librarian, Mr. Green, for his friendl interest and hel . Miss Weeks' hel , of course, we take for Y P P granted. As our staff advisor she has given us ideas and criticisms, much of her time and considerable encouragement. We have learned many things-from what to wear when we have our pictures tak- en to the correct technique of selling advertisements. Perhaps the most valuable lesson i we have learned is to work together as a group, a group of individuals full of ideas-no i two of which are alike. In calling our book "W'ho's Wfhon we are not attempting anything like a roll-call l of our town's literary people. We have chosen only those with whom we,ve become best acquainted in our English classes. To produce a complete record we realize we should have to bring out a book several times the size of this one. Imperfect and incomplete as it is, we offer it to you with considerable pride and satisfaction. We like it. We hope you will, too. I I 9 , , wHo wi-Io as Mmfka1936 gow iq TRI S NE of our S's is for "Social.,, Under this star we opened our season with a spooky, startling, strange Hallowe'en Party that was pronounced a splendid success. Our hike, a few weeks later, to Orient Springs, was truly a social event, an occa- sion that was lots of fun, and the excuse for swallowing a remarkably large number of hot dogs and marshmallows. In the early winter we discovered how much fun twenty-five girls can have at a candy pull even when their fingers have been burned and the taffy has been scorched. Our real society event in December, however, was not the candy pull, but a tea at which Mrs. Bennet spoke to us about "Christmas in Rome." We enjoyed both Mrs. Bennet and her talk. A Another S is for 'QService," and under this star we've been busy, too, for weive made place cards, Scrapbooks, toys, and filled several Thanksgiving baskets. Our third S is for "Sports" Here, too, our schedule has been filled with basket- ball, baseball and soccer games. ' In a few words, our year has been full of activity, interest and worth while experiences. . WHS' PP 5, ff 44 in fha 1936 Qofd ug HII Y HE Hi-Y has gone a long distance this year "to create, maintain and extend, throughout the school and community, high ideals of Christian characterf, "Crime and prison problemsv was only one of many up-to-the-minute, exciting and profitable discussions we had this year in Hi-Y. Our speakers were very generous with their time. From the colleges, Dr. Glick gave us the "lowdown" on dreams, and Dr. Loomis told of a new way to dig up the past in his talk on "Hunting Dinosaurs." Mr. Keiler and Mr. Lacroix, too, gave interesting talks. One of the highlights was the meeting at which Mr. Sander, the advisor of the Greenfield High Hi-Y, spoke and exchanged ideas with us. But quite as important as the talking was the eating we did this year. We had some dandy meals served by our own members. Many of our number are really fine cooks, but lack enthusiasm when it comes to dishwashing. Nor did we neglect the "sound body" that attends the usound mindf, After nearly every meeting we had a basketball game. With a successful season to refer to, it is only fair, we think, to say that the Hi-Y, a club with diversified interests, has something in it worth while for every boy. WHO' wHo 2 a .f . i1zfhe1936 JOM ,aa ORCHESTRA O 'tWho,s W'ho,' is complete without special mention being given to Mr. Tarlow and his loyal followers who make all our own assemblies and special activities pleasant and attractive in a musical way. This year the orchestra consisted of about fifty members, who in their first ap- pearance of the season won twenty dollars, third prize at the Eastern States Exposition Contest. Following this encouraging start, programs were given at the Junior Play, the Inter-Class Plays, a section of the Woman's Club and at the Parent Teacher's Associa- tion. In March, Mr. Tarlow, after recommending rice and chopsticks to get us in the mood, began rehearsals in preparation for the Gilbert and Sullivan "Mikado" given by the combined musical clubs. The great success of our year's work is due mainly to the patience and careful training of Mr. Tarlow who wins not only the honest efforts of all students who study with him, but the sincere regard of the entire community. WHQ' PP PP 44 44 in fbe 1936 gofd ug BAND HE band has shown great improvement since its first appearance three years ago. At that time all available material was gathered together with surprising results. Now we have a well-balanced organization of about twenty-four members who play almost all the instruments essential in a band. This year, the State Tournament gave the band its first chance to shine. In a blaze of glory we opened the program of the Hrst night. Mr. Tarlow,s own "Victory March" and "Phil', Smith,s arrangement of "There's a Tavern in the Townu shared the honors given to our band. On the final nights of the tournament, although drowned out by the larger bands, Mark Damerst kept up our enthusiasm with his magic baton. As the result of a hilarious donkey basketball game suffered by the men of the faculty, we were able to purchase new uniforms this season. In these maroon sweaters and white trousers, we finished our third successful season with a splendid spring concert. HC, PP 2 44 44 i1zfbe1936 Jofd ,Bug 2, PR MERHTO NE more bit of evidence that thirteen is a lucky number-We have thirteen members in Pro Merito. According to "brain" statistics, as a group, we are not doing badly. It was our turn this year to be host to the other Pro Merito societies in Massa- chusetts. Through the courtesy of the Phi Beta Kappa chapter at the State College, We entertainedlour guests on their campus. NW e held the business meeting, presided over by Harding Jenkins, our president, and the state president, in Memorial Hall, made a tour of the new Thatcher Dormitory, enjoyed a lunch at the cafeteria and, after being welcomed by Dean Machmer, listened to Professor MacKimmie who spoke to us on Dialect Poetry. Later in the afternoon We watched a soccer game and visited the Goodell Library. Our chief source of revenue this year was the sale of candy at the Junior Play. But We are interested only indirectly in things financial, being concerned chiefly with "things of the spirit." PP by 44 44 in ffm 1936 gold ug STUDENT COUNCIL HE Student Council, for the year 1935-36, has a group of varied accomplishments to its credit. Its meetings have been led by Lincoln Moody, President, Anna Har- rington, Secretary, and Mr. Haskins, advisor. Under che direction of these officers, the Student Council has decided many important questions and brought about many im- provements which have benefited the Whole school. The Council has done a great deal to revive the Waning interest in school sports. Football tickets have been sold at a reduced price, and an athletic committee formed to act with the coach and principal to arrange for greater student participation in the management of athletics. The first plans for the outing club, which proved to be very successful, were made by the Student Council. Of special interest to the school were the dancing sessions sponsored by the Student Council. These lessons enabled many to spend a series of enjoyable as Well as profitable Friday afternoons. The Student Council has tried to plan and organize Work to benefit the entire student body, and it hopes that these beginnings Will be continued and further de- veloped by other classes. ll ff as 44 44 in fha 1936 gofd uq 1 QQCAPTATN AlPlPlLlEJAClIC9 T took daring pirates, glamorous girls, a dignified matron and a romantic leading man to present "Captain Applejack' as our Junior play. A background of Arabian Night's adventure, with the scene laid on the coast of Cornwall, tested the imagination and skill of our property manager, Kathleen Cooper. Dana Frandsen acted as stage manager and lent a note of mystery and originality by making the clock strike two twice upon that eventful night. Rose Cicia stood by as ready prompter. William Bartonkept the details of the business manager well in hand, and Miss Batchelder gave efficient service as faculty business manager. Miss Ricker coached the play and the success of the undertaking is due to her care and patience. Romance and rapid action dominated the plot. Harding Jenkins took the part of Ambrose Applejohn, a man who wanted to sell his ancestral home because he longed for a life of romance and adventure. The part of Aunt Agatha, the matronly aunt, was taken by Virginia Skillings, while Katherine Doran in her portrayal of Poppy Faire was the center of attraction as she quietly led Ambrose to see that romance was at home under his own roof. The advertisement of the old house opened the way for adventure. Anna Valeska, a Russian dancer, sought refuge there, and Anna Harrington in this role was glamorous and charming. "Charlie" Rehorka was a convincing villain as Ivan Borolsky, and Lin- coln Moody, as Johnny Jason, came in with his usual smile to clear up the mystery. In the second act, however, the quiet Ambrose fell asleep, dreamed of pirates, and turned into a roaring tyrant in defence of his ship and Poppy Faire. This gave the cast a chance to show their dramatic ability as pirates, robbers and bad actors, generally. The play closed with Captain Applejack outwitting the robbers and discovering a hitherto unsuspected treasure for himself, and the truth that adventure and romance may really be found at home. WHUS 59 PP 44 44 in fha 1936 gofd .Bug SENIOR PLAY HEN we were studying the one-act play this year, our English teacher read us one that we decided immediately we'd like to produce. Although the author's name on the manuscript was "David Wilson," we all thought we knew whose play it really was. We asked Miss Wfeeks for permission to use the play, and for her assistance as coach. After she said, "go aheadf' we felt that we were off on the right foot. W'ith the play appropriately cast, we started rehearsals-and the fun. Every day after school, in room 6, Harding Jenkins, as the impatient professor, shouted himself hoarse while Miss Weeks called, "louder, louderu to the stunning secretary who was really Katherine Doran. Bill Barton, at first, resented being made into an intellectual, but finally con- sented to the bone glasses. At all the rehearsals, Lincoln Moody's irresistible good nature supplied the spring- time optimistic mood of the play, and his pretty sweetheart, Anna Harrington, com- pleted the picture of Maytime happiness. The cast will never forget, however, the circumstances under which the play was actually produced. We had no dress rehearsal, for our heroine had laryngitis, and the comedian was at home sleeping, in an effort to recover from the most harrowing and hideous experience a person can endure, for only the night before, occurred the most devastating flood in our history, a night of sorrow and misery to hundreds of our neighbors, and the longest night Lincoln Moody will ever know. W'hen the play went on, however, the audience, and the cast, forgot all about the flood and thoroughly enjoyed forty-ive minutes of gay fun. When the judges, three college professors, decided that the Seniors had staged the most hnished performance, the class of 1936 felt that it had achieved a triumph, a triumph greater than any number of points gained towards the Stowell Cup. PP PP 44 44 in file .Bug GRAPHIC HE Graphic has had an awakening. Its subscriptions have doubled. Its staff has been enlarged. Its pages are filled with new departments. The whole paper con- tinues to improve with each issue. In September the Graphic sponsored the Freshman Reception as a climax to its clamor for subscriptions. Even the editors were satisfied with the profits. With a bal- ance in the bank, and new courage, the staff was inspired to undertake a complete reorganization of the paper. The new issues have revealed new columns, illustrated headings, Faculty Corners and book reviews. The Literary Section has been entirely separated from the news and is created by an entirely different section of the staff. The aft editor and cartoonist have done much to make the Graphic more at- tractive in appearance, their illustrations add life and a spirit that were missing before. Two other features add color--"The Teakettle," a column of nonsense and wit, and "The Amherst Billy," philosophy in small doses. The staH, with Miss Brown to advise and Dorothy Morley to act as editor-in-chief, has accomplished much this year. The Amherst I-Iigh School now has a new Graphic, a Graphic of which it can be justly proud. WHO, ff PP 44 44 in flze 1936 Qofd .Bug DEBATHNG GLUE HE triangular debate, held March 12th, was the outstanding event of the year for the Debating Club. The subject Was t'Resolved that the several states should adopt a system of state medicinef, All points were Well handled by both teams. Vir- ginia Pease and Kenneth King, coached by Mr. Gleason, Were scheduled to support the affirmative side, While Martha Stifler and Walter Wileikis, directed by Mr. Seass, upheld the negative side. The final results were disheartening for Amherst, but what really counted was the splendid, conscientious Work done by the individual members. King's unfortunate illness left Virginia Pease to heroically carry on by herself. Our Debating Club this year will not remember with delight any brilliant vic- tories, but with considerable satisfaction it may recall the fun it was to Work against very great odds, and finally, in spite of all handicaps, finish a job creditably. WHO' 2 2 44 44 i1zfhe1936 Qofd .Bug OUTJING CLUB HE newly formed Outing Club got off to a great start this year. As a result of fall and spring hikes, winter skiing and skating, the club has become one of the largest and most active groups in the school. The skiing section proved most popular, with groups out, ready for fun, from the first flurry to the last thaw. Jones' pasture was the scene of the :first attempts, while the more experienced went to Mount Toby to try Bull Hill or the 'tW'hite Lightning." Two meets were held, on the Springfield cleared slope, at which our club was well represented. The big success of the winter season was our Carnival. Barbara Critchett was crowned Queen by our King, Parker Jones. The competition was spirited and keen, with speed, form, and distance conspicuous in all events. Our other skiiers made very creditable showings at Greenfield and Pittsield, but deserve no more credit, perhaps, than those who were struggling with the fundamentals of che sport at Jones, pasture. Our final and most significant experience was our trip to Mount Washington in April. We came back from that adventure with a new sense of beauty and of the magnitude and majesty of nature. ' 1 K U l PP 2 44 44 in file 1936 Qofd .Buq OOTBAIUL UR football team, under the leadership of Captain John Blasko, finished one of the most successful seasons the school has had in a number of years. This success was largely the result of hard work done by Coach George Williams who had to build almost an entirely new team after the graduation of Foley, Bixby, Branch, Toczydlowski, Page, Clark and Captain Doleva. Coach must have done a very thorough job, because Amherst was scored upon in only two games and proved to be the highest scoring club in western Massachusetts. Our fullback, Perry Roberts, with ninety points led all western Massachusetts scorers. Dana Frandsen and Pete Kuzmiski were also among the leaders with forty-four, and thirty-four points, respectively. Our record shows one defeat, two ties and six victories. The defeat was suffered at the hands of Turners Falls, western Massachusetts champions, by a score of nineteen to nothing. The ties were with the Commerce and Palmer teams. The wins were all real wins: over Stafford Springs with a score of twenty-one to nothing, over W'are, thirteen to nothing, over Deerfield High and Arms Academy, forty-five to nothing, over our worthy and undefeated rival Northampton, twenty-five to six. We closed our season with a forty-three to nothing victory over South Hadley High, a game witnessed by one of the largest crowds ever gathered on Blake field. A week after the final game, our team were guests at a turkey supper, and honored with gold footballs through the generosity of Doctor Ruder. Seniors who received their gold footballs are: Captain John Blasko, Joe Kominski, Alex Kominski, Dana Frandsen, Pete Kuzmiski, Parker Jones, Bill Lambert and Edward Carlisle. Every one hopes that these boys will carry on in the future with the same style they showed on the gridiron. i 4 V l l l i l l V l l s WHO'S WHO ,, BASKETBALL HE 1936 season was not particularly brilliant, but in it we saw a real cooperation and scrap that made the defeats easier to take. With Alec and Joe Kominiski, George Kelly, Wyatt Smythe, John Blasko and Perry- Roberts all back, the prospect looked favorable, but the loss of Captain "Ham', Kominiski and Kelly in mid-season was just too much. In the Hampshire League first round our record of four wins and only one defeat placed us in a tie with Smith's School for first place. In the second round, however, we won only two and lost three, finishing' the season in third place. Many of our defeats were by such small margins that the results were really not so humiliating as they were exasperating. Our Berkshire rivals, Williamstown High, were just a little too strong for us in the State Tournament, nosing us out 21 to 23 in the last minute of play. The Class of '36 ranked high in the 'tWho's Who" of Basketball this year, with "Johnny" Blasko, "Hanan and t'Dodo,' Kominiski, "Chef, Zawaski and George Kelly all doing their part, while "Butchn Lambert turned out to be a great "better late than never" manager. PP 44 44 in the .Bug 2 PP 44 44 i1zfhe1936gofd.B q R BASEBALL HE season is still young, yet Amherst High has split even, winning and losing three- ball games this season, the first, to Smith's School by a score of 8-3. Northampton Was our next opponent, and, as a result of "Ham" Kominiski's skill in shutting out the "Hamp" team with no runs and no hits, Amherst Won 8-0. Alex fanned 18 and Walked 3. A place in the Hall of Fame for Alex Kominiski! In the third start of the season the boys Went to Shelburne Falls where a home run by a pinch hitter in the last half of the ninth inning Won the day for the home team. The score 8-7. Up against a real rival, Commerce, in the fourth game of the season, Amherst played great ball, but lost the breaks and the game S-3. Again "Ham" pitched superbly, but his mates failed to support him. Amherst outhit Commerce, neverthe- less, in this game. Breaking into the Winning column again, the boys swamped the inexperienced Hopkins' nine 17-2. Amherst played splendidly in this game and emerged with a Well-deserved victory. Revenging the stinging defeat of last season, our team in their sixth start, over- whelmed Easthampton High, 9-4, behind Kominiski's steady three-hit pitching. A11 appearances point to a great season with the fine pitching of "Ham" Kom- iniski, and the hitting of freshman "Lena, Page and sophomore t'Will" Robinson. The boys are out to make real "Who's Who" history.
