A 11936 STUDENT TOOKS
ARCOUND I-IIM I
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.
The sun rose
Bright and glorious
Out of the morning.
In dark oblivion
Into a dreary sky. .5
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."
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.
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
Had dropped bright pieces on Earth's sedges.
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
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
a -ELIZABETH PARSONS.
THIS KIND lf IMMORTAIITY
ll SH ULD lLlIlKlE
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.

3 likf fo
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.
Hearing echoes from a misty vale,
The murmurs of ambitious hopes,
The poet Watches, mirrored in a stream,
A dream that floats with silvered sail.
These things can just as much be ours,
Who cannot sing of what We see,
Or tell the World in colored Words
Of beauty and enchanted hours.
WHO WAS WHO in Amherst
"There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Cf prancing poetry."
"Good old days-Dear old days
When my heart beat high and hold-
When the things of earth seemed full of life,
And the future a haze of gold!"
"Go joyful men, in fragile ships to sail
By unknown seas to unknown lands"-
One of the surest tests of a man's real worth is the
esteem and confidence of those who have long known
him, and his conduct in domestic and social life."

WHU IS WHO in Amherst
"The difference between a story and true life is that the
first must have an ending, While the second goes straight
on to the stars."
"Deeper than chords that search the soul and dieg-
Mocking to ashes co1or's hot arrayg
Closer than touch-Within our hearts they lie-
The Words We do not say!
"Was there ever a cause too lost,
Ever a cause that was lost too- long,
Or that showed with the lapse of time too vain
For the generous tears of youth and song?"

"A man will Hnd his heaven Where he must,
Remote or near, before him or behind,
Eternal or in lovely shape of dust . . .
Some other day my restless need may find
Another heaven in another Way,
But this is how it was with me todayf,

And the Wind that bids them sing:
They carol of yester years to me,
They tell of the years that are yet to be,
They charge me shape my destiny

In years to come
Where shall I be?
What does the future
Hold for me?
Shall I some gainful
Or toss my life to
Some fool boy?
I WISH --
I,d like to have Aladdin,s lamp
To use just for tonight
I'd climb the skies to see the stars
So still and clear and bright.
I'd like to touch the tops of pines
I'd like to lie in clouds
I,d like to Wrap the mountains up
In misty half-cold shrouds.
' 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.
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.

WHO HAS BEEN WHO
Officers: Harding Jenkins, president, John Hamlin, vice-president, Katherine Doran,
Important Events: Freshman Reception. Will you ever forget it? Our debut into High
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?
Harding Jenkins, president, William Barton, vice-president, Katherine Doran,
Important Events: Dances, Dramatics, Debating, Sports. By this second year we had
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.
Everson, vice-president, Katherine Doran,
Harding Jenkins, president, Robert
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.
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?
Harding Jenkins, president, Dana Frandsen, vice-president, Katherine Doran,
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
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
June 20. FREEDOM TO DO WHAT WE WILL.

Slipping through the rushes
In a green and grey canoe,
I stretched my hand for lilies
To pluck a very few.
"Hello," I called my brother,
"Hello," came answer wild
From deep in pine and hemlock
Where hid an echo child.
I asked her price for lilies,
I asked if she would care
If lilies white and yellow
Lay tangled in my hair.
KIEYS T0 HAPPINESS
ELIZABETH K. 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.

WHO is SUPERIOR?
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
"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."

I HE life of the usual senior book is short we have been told. 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
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.
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
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.

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

ball, baseball and soccer games. '

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.

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.

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.

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-

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

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.
WHO'S WHO ,,
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
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.

"Johnny" Blasko, "Hanan and t'Dodo,' Kominiski, "Chef, Zawaski and George Kelly

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
Revenging the stinging defeat of last season, our team in their sixth start, over-
