Although it has long been a tradition
of Amherst High School that its yearbook
be called the "Gold Bug," many of us have
never realized the significance of this title.
The Gold Bug, of Poe's tale of mystery, was
a beautiful and unusual insect, so heavy and
of such a color that one might easily have
taken it for pure gold. The Gold Bug itself,
however, was not pure gold, but it helped
those seeking to find the true treasure. Into
this "Gold Bug" We have tried to put our
golden memories along with golden dreams
of our future.
Q In any group there is always
one who is outstanding, although this clis-
tinetion inay he felt rather than seen. In
the Ainherst High School, there is a inan
who says very little, hut stana's eager ana'
siniling, reaely toserve whenever the oppor-
tunity arises. He is helovecl ana' esteerneel
To this nian we alealieate our
1937 Gold Bug

"Gooclhye" to Amherst High School
Where we have spent four happy years
Uncler the rocl and rule.
To teachers all anal stua'y hall
We now hid font! aalieu
Steeper gracles lie aheacl of us
Ana' we'll have to make them, too.
Though ,tis not without regret
That we depart from here
Another class is just hehfncl
To graduate next year.
What we really are,
QDial you ever stop to thinfe?j
Is just one part of a long chain-
Iust a connecting link.

Though our high school alays are clone,
What maale the time so pleasant here
For each ana' every one.

"A deal of sfcimble-sfcambfe stuff"
ON THE MOON
The Man in the M0071 stroked his pearly gray whiskers and gazed earthward.
For two years, as we understand time, rocket ships had been flying between the earth
and her satellite. Einstein, the physicist, had proved that the moon, instead of being a
cold pile of stone, moving around the earth every twenty-seven and one-third days,
was, in reality, a veritable Garden of Eden with a glamorous atmosphere. The "face', it
had always turned towards the earth was only a false drop, let down to fool real estate
prospectors who might want to stake claims and set up sub-divisions for land auction
sales. Or, too, this "face" of the moon might have been a measure of protection against
colonizing nations like Japan and Italy.
But whatever the reasons for the deceptive appearance of the moon, the Man
in the Moon was looking out into space. It couldn't be called an empty space, for
there were a lot of little asteroids flying around, but he was looking down, or was it up,
through space? What he saw appeared to be an illuminated 'ldaisy chainv swinging
this way and that in his sky. It was weaving and wheeling about in a most fantastic
manner, as if a crazy football team had just won a game and, having pulled up the
goal posts, was staging a show on the gridiron.
The Man in the Moon had seen many comets, and some of them had been
almost close enough to singe his pearly gray whiskers. Ulf that is a comet," said he to
himself, "the thing's intoxicated." He kept his eye on the moving objects with the aid
of a great pair of binoculars, and he soon made out the red-white-and-blue color scheme
of the great U. S. A.-Earth.
Being a sedate old character, not given to garrulous outbursts, he quietly turned
to Luna and observed: "Here they comef'
"Who comes?', asked Luna.
And the Man in the Moon, instead of burning her up with a sharp reply, said
softly: t'The 1937 class of the Amherst High School. This is their twentieth anni-
versary and they're celebrating in Crater Park on the Sunnyside."
Before the Man in the Moon had time to draw another breath, the rockets began
to arrive. The first one Cyou may be surej to land gracefully on that piece of "green
cheese" and unload its freight of chanting men and women, along with their children,
was the ship piloted by co-pilots John Yokubaitis and John Wroblewski. Accompany-
ing these world-famed fliers were James Davis and Alec Hrynyshyn, mechanic and
radio man, respectively. It's queer how habits will stick. These fellows, Irving Haskell
and Karl Dihlmann, of the great Shutesbury Lumber Concern, in their forties were
kids again and behaving just as they used to in Room 6, shouting and clapping on the
back their old pals, "Charlie" Gervickas, the chemistry research authority, who had
just discovered another element, and John Demko, the writer of "School-Boy Jottingsn
for the Springfield Republican. Other rockets had landed, 1-2-3-4-S-6. In all, ten.
In that Hrst one had come some fine-looking ladies. Among them, one with the
physique and spirit of an Amazon-yes-Ruth Kennedy. She shoved aside impatiently
poor little Frank Page, George McLaughlin, and Stanley Kiselewski, three quiet, peace-
ful little men who, we suspect, are ruled at home by their wives. Well, after a while,
they were all ashore-or all amoon-with a complete equipment of lunch baskets,
thermos bottles, pillows, and blankets.
"Quite a crowd," said the Man in the Moon, "and some pretty nice-looking
girlsf, as he winked slyly at "Edu O'Brien, but, wonder of wonders, "Ed,' had been too
busily occupied with his great engineering feats to worry much about the ladies.
Cornelius Slack, Lester Buckman, and "Bob" Bosworth had been studying moon
geography and they offered to be the guides for any who wished to explore the caves
and caverns on the moon, while the more domesticated stayed to prepare the community

happily married took out a number of picnic paper table cloths and napkins which
immediately sailed off over their heads while Luna laughed languidly.
"You should have brought lead ones," she said. "Nothing so light as paper
will stay on this spheref'
As one of the table cloths floated close by we could see the name t'Newell"
emblazoned in great gilt letters on the wrapper. We overwhelmed 'tHammy" with
questions and with a modest blush he told us he had bought out the Dennison Printing
"Dot,' Spencer, a modern Betty Crocker, took out of her basket a beautiful
twelve-egg angel cake which rose immediately in the thin air. "Dick,' Graves Qnow
enjoying all the ice cream he wants, because he's in the business with UVic" Patnaudej ,
took a huge bite as the cake sailed near his mouth and Hazel Warner, now one of the
greatest horeswomen in America, boxed his ears just as she used to in the good old days.
About this time everybody began to realize how much lighter he was on his
feet, and "Archie,' Lauder suggested a dance.
No sooner said than done, "Stell,' Maisner and George Fotos got out their fiddles.
fWho would have thought such famous artists would play in a jazz orchestra?j But
wonders never cease. "Dave', VanMeter, the jazz king of America, got out his bass,
and "Phil,, Smith, though leader of the New York Philharmonic, hadn't forgotten how
to "swing itf' No orchestra is complete without the drums, and ours were played with
great skill by "Bob" Jones, the former Amherst High swing drummer, now a famous
tympani player in "Phil's" orchestra. Mary Moore, the famous concert pianist of
Europe and the United States, condescended to jazz with our temporary orchestra.
Marcus, now the head of a large chain of drug stores, still remembered how to play his
fiddle, and volunteered to help out t'Stell" and George, with 'tBi11,' Shumway right on
his heels, tenderly carrying his famous Stradivarius. Look who,s coming! "Donn
Sherman and "Jimmie" Millar! UDon," who had succeeded Fred MacMurray on the
screen, had his sax, and 'tjimmien had his horn ready to play his new interpretation of
the "Music Goes Round and ,Roundu for which he is now in the upper ranks. With
these artists of renown, the orchestra had a good start and soon we were dancing gaily.
If you,ve never danced on the moon, you've missed a sensation. Those little
saucerlike areas are really quite big when you,re in one, and this small party of one
hundred or so seemed lost in even the smallest of them all. Some of the ladies were
wearing sandals, a new creation designed by "Vi" Benjamin, and the little sharp stones
in the "impromptu" ballroom worked under the soles of their shoes, so that "Cathy',
Boguslawski and Margaret Clarke had to stop every few minutes to shake out the
pebbles. Verone Wziontka, "Deen Bukoski, and Anna Hutson, who have become very
sedate, now seemed shocked at the way in which Martha Stifler and Ruth Cambridge
flirted with the men. There were other annoyances, too, during the dance. Marjorie
Crossman, Sophie Hanieski, and Irene Karpinski, trained nurses by profession, were busy
extracting asteroid cinders that had flown into the beautiful eyes of "Bee" Critchett,
a Broadway star.
When the explorers returned, "Dud,' Irwin reported that "Marg" Shaw had
spent most of the time smoothing the manes of Luna's two horses while Lloyd Hubbard
took especial delight in sketching those beautiful beasts for his animal collection.
"Betty" Bascom was disappointed because sheid found no silver on the moon.
Parker Hubbard laughed at her as husbands generally do. "You,ve been reading
poetry," he said, "and one can never believe that stufff' Paul Johnson, who down
on earth had been collecting queer stones for years, appeared with a bushel or so of
oddly shaped nuggets and dumped them at the feet of Andrew Warner, his fellow
"What are you going to do with that junk?', laughed Dave Harris, a cynical
coal company owner. V

'Thibhdo Eddie Pelis, and Albert Gwen, entomologists of the famous t'Bug-in-the-Rug"
tann Waskiewicz and t'Joe" Raskevitz, coming back, after
spending some time looking for "lunatics," a kind of wood louse found under the bark
of moon trees, happened to gaze off into space and Eddie exclaimed, t'Look, see that
enormous white disk! Three times the size of the moon!"
Q'What can it be?" asked Wendell Brown, a philatilist Of FCDOWH- Fred Guyott,
still the wise-guy, replied, "Why, that's our own earth, 'nit-wit,, and if youill look
over to the right, you'll see coming into view a smaller object whose rays are going

spread in grand array.
Helen Flint and "Betty" Slocombe, caterers of renown, had planned the feast,
and it was indeed a grand one. The matronly ladies, used to waiting on their men-
folks at home, started to serve the reunion banquet. Helen Johnson, Gertrude Comings,
Bertha Strong, and Barbara Tiffany passed sandwiches to the ravenous crowd. Anna
Zimnoski, Helen Wroblewski, Sophie Waskiewicz, and Anna Snicker were assigned to
pouring iced tea and coffee. Even the efficient secretaries, Helen Warner, Dorothy
Martin, Althea Turner, and Helen Sabelowski did their little part by serving pickles,
sugar and cream, and olives. The pies, cakes, and ice cream came last. The
ice cream was extremely delicious, made from Jersey cream from the Stedman-Miller
Dairy Farm. The dainty pastry creations were served by Evelyn Weaver, Josephine
Silvonic, Genevieve Matusko, and Hilda Scarborough.
t'Let's get out of this scorching heat," cried Helen Adriance, and with one
accord, and a great clatter of dishes and silverware, everyone tried to help repack
the hampers. When this was done, a business meeting was called and Dorothy Shampo,
Secretary of the Alumni Association, read the minutes of the last hilarious reunion,
held under the ubig topv of the Guyott-Hawthorne Circus. After the report, reels of
movies of that same reunion, taken by none other than Patheas great photographer,
Archie Strong, were shown us, and we had a great time laughing at ourselves and each
other. There being no business forth-coming, we adjourned to explore our newly

be a moonbeam. Frances Richardson and Jennie Paradise between them were carrying
a great slab of slate upon which they were going to give tap tancing exhibitions when
they got back to earth. Luna told them it would take six men to unload it, when
once they were back in the earth's atmosphere.
As the ladies were leaving, the Man in the Moon kissed Connie Nestle good-bye
and made Phil Hastings jealous.
"Weive had a swell time," everybody told him. He only laughed and continued
to stroke his pearly gray whiskers. He stood there gazing earthward as the swift
moving rocket ships slipped silently out into space. '

Excerpts From An Unusual D1ary
successful For all of us these last four years have been full of minute incidents that
are now tucked away but that will be remembered much longer than the big events
of our High School career
In September 1933 we began our career in Amherst High School as very awed Fresh

men. Not many of us attended the Freshman Reception, although it was intended
especially for us, but we did turn out in great numbers for the Inter-Class Play Contest,
to which our class contributed "The Cure-All," a play which won great recognition
for the whole class.
In this first year our officers were: President, Philip Hastings, Vice-President, David
Keedyg Secretary-Treasurer, Barbara Critchett. Although our boys did not devote so
much time to baseball, football, and basketball as they did in later years, a large number
of our girls, especially those who lived in Amherst, gave much of their time to the
Tri-S and enjoyed many new friends and good times.
Having struggled through our mid-year exams, we faced the next half of the year with
new courage and zeal. The final exams were not so bad, and left us feeling we had
had a very profitable and enjoyable year.
Although we were now Sophomores, we were still insignificant in the eyes of the
haughty, upper classmen. Nevertheless, we went forward with an invincible spirit
and won recognition for ourselves.
The President of our class was David Keedy, who, on account of illness, resigned and
was succeeded by Philip Hastings. The Secretary-Treasurer fthat perennial pest who
is constantly seeking for class duesj was Connie Nestle.
The Sophomore entry in the Inter-Class Play Contest was a gripping mystery play,
"The Ghost Hunters," under the capable direction of Miss Churchill. The cast in-
cluded Barbara Critchett, Janet Harrington, William Machmer, and Philip Hastings.
Cur Junior year was our most successful and busiest, under the able leadership of
Philip Hastings, President, Connie Nestle, Vice-President, and Barbara Critchett,
Secretary-Treasurer. We were well represented on the Graphic Staff, the football and
basketball teams, and the Tri-S and Hi-Y executive boards. Qur hrst notable success
was the Junior Play, "The Whole Town's Talking," a production Ccoached by Miss
Rickerj, of which we were justly proud. After weathering the storm of mid-year
exams once more, Connie Nestle and Barbara Critchett helped to make the Tri-S Prom
one of the best dances in the history of the club. Then came two big events: the
winter carnival at which Barbara Critchett was crowned queen, and "The Blue Gatef'
our offering in the Inter-Class Play Competition. The Junior Prom, on May 8, was
an important event, as was the staging of the "Mikado" in which Margaret Shaw sang
the leading feminine role. With final exams and a reception to the Seniors, we said
farewell to A. H. S. for the summer months.
We had now arrived at the time for which we had been waiting-our Senior year.
We felt our superiority and exercised our privileges as Seniors-snubbing the lower
classmen and rubbing them into the dirt.
The class elections were held and again Philip Hastings was elected President, with
Edward O,Brien, Vice-President, and Connie Nestle, Secretary-Treasurer. The first
important dance of the season was the Senior Hop. The committee comprised Eddie
O,Brien, Connie Nestle, and Helen Flint. The decorations were of a fall tone-autumn
leaves, cornstalks, and pumpkins. The music was furnished by Eddie Cerruti's orchestra.
The Senior Class Play for the Inter-Class Play Contest was "The Singapore Spiderf'
directed by Mr. Lord. The cast included Althea Turner, Myrtle Warner, Parker
Hubbard, Wilbur Shumway, and Edward O'Brien.
Dorothy Shampo and Lester Buckman represented our class in the debating, while
Edith Miller won the Prize-Speaking Contest with uThe White Hands of Tellumf,
The Dramatic Club presented the play "Wayside War," directed by Mr. Kenney, at the
Inter-School Play Contest which met at Amherst. So ended the important activities
of our last year as students in Amherst High School.
These four years have been filled with joy and sorrow, success and disappointments,
smiles and frowns, fun and drudgery. The sorrows, disappointments, frowns, and
drudgery will all be forgotten. The joy, success, smiles, and fun will remain in our
hearts always as pleasant memories.

Coininittee: JAMES DAVIS,
JENNIE ANTONIA ADAMSKI
"Jean', comes from 'way up in Sun-
derland and doesn't have much time for
outside activities in school. She likes to
be out-of-doors hiking or skating. She's
a good student, too, a member of Pro
Merito. Her quick observation should
help her become an efficient bookkeeper.
HELEN EUNICE ADRIANCE
Helen comes from way down East, in
Pelham, and, consequently, has little time
for school activities between her long
trips. She is very quiet, and never pushes
herself forward. Still waters run deep.
Helen is very much interested in home
economics, a fascinating subject to which
she should do ample justice. She has no
definite plans, as yet, for the future.
GLADYS GLENCROSS ARCHIBALD
Gladys, better known as "Archie," is
one of the most valuable members of the
Senior Class. Active in most of the eXtra-
curricular activities, she is one of the best-
liked girls in the class. Pro-Merito, Gold
Bug, Graphic, Tri-S, and Operetta are
only a few of her interests. "Archie,'
seems to like all subjects in school and
most outdoor sports, too. Mass. State
is her destination, and we all wish her as
many good times there as she has given
SHIRLEY JEANNETTE BALL
Shirley is another of our many friends
from Leverett. It's a long way off and
prevents many from taking part in after-
school activities. Shirley likes French and
gets good marks in History as well. Very
quiet and reserved, she would rather read
than be out-of-doors. She doesn't know
what she will do when she graduates, but
in the summer she,d like to be a camp
ELIZABETH BLANCHE BASCOM
'tBetty," also known as Betsey, all the
way from Leverett, is a favorite with all
who know her. Although she has to
catch a bus right after school, she is a
good student, especially in French and
English. Betty likes to swim and hike as
well as read. She has graced the soprano
section of the chorus for three years.
Her ambition is to become an English
or a Latin teacher. We wish her lots
VIOLA MAGDALENE ,BENJAMIN
This girl is the personification of neat-
ness. Did you ever see her with a hair
out of place? Or without a smile? Or
without Fran Darling? 'tVi" is one of
our commercial students. Although she
doesn't try to get into the limelight, we
all know that she is with us. No one
would be surprised to see Viola success-
ful as a quiet, efficient secretary.
Mary is a quiet girl and does not take
part in any of the school activities. She
likes basketball and the radio. You can
tell Mary by her giggle and the smile
that goes wherever she goes. Mary's
chief interests are her dog and her piano.
NELLIE LOUISE BIXBY
Louise is one of our commuters from
Sunderland. English, Art, and Music
claim much of her interest, but she still
has time for swimming, skating, and hik-
ing after school hours. Her neatness and
efficiency are certain to make her the ex-
cellent nurse that she wants to be.
CATHERINE ELIZABETH BOGUSLAWSKI
Catherine, in spite of the fact that
she works, has found time to be a mem-
ber of the Orchestra. She has also sung
in both the Chorus and the Glee Club.
She is worthy of more attention than she
demands, for she never pushes herself
ahead. As well as in Music, she is inter-
ested in commercial subjects, particularly
Shorthand. Next year she plans to enter
Northampton Commercial College.
ROBERT EDWARD BOswORTH
Everyone in the school knows 'QBozie."
Who doesn't remember those football
games where uBoz," practically single-
handed, carried the team to victory, en-
thusiastically smashing the opposition in
a fashion that was the talk of the season?
Besides football, ujeepn likes swimming,
hunting, and fishing. He likes to sing,
and has been in the chorus all four years,
and in operetta his Erst year. Drawing
is his hobby, and he would like to be an
WENDELL EVERETT BROWN
"Wendy" is a rather quiet fellow of
whom we see only a little. His favorite
subjectsare Science and History. He is
a member of the Hi-Y and the Photog-
raphy Club. Collecting United States
5 36 is-
stamps forms his chief hobby. His favor-
ite sport is soccer. Wendell plans to go to
Pettie prep school in Heightstown, New
Jersey, for a year, but beyond that, his
future is undecided. A
LESTER WILBUR BUCKMAN
"Buck,', teachers' trial, is always in
mischief. He loves to tease the girls, but
his impish grin allows him "to get
awayv with a great deal. Down in South
Amherst, Lester, on his bicycle, is a
familiar figure peddling papers. He likes
to go to dances, but rarely appears on
the floor to exhibit his talent. No one
could take "Buck,s" place leaning on the
lunch counter, loitering in the corridors,
or hollering "hello" to everyone.
DELIA MARION BUKOSKI
All the boys and girls know t'Dee."
She,s lots of fun and very popular.
t'Dee" starred on the girls' basketball
team her Sophomore year, and was in the
Tri-S her first two years. She had one
of the leading parts in our Junior Inter-
class Play. Delia loves to dance and cer-
tainly can swing a mean toe! She wants
to be a stenographerg she's especially fond
of typing, and can do it well.
ROSAMUND SILVIA BURROWS
Rosamund has earned her name of
t'Honey." She is as quiet, sweet, and
blonde as the name implies. She is so
quiet and hard-working that she professes
not to have had much to do with either
our school clubs or with sports. About
all that she admits is having sung in the
chorus her freshman year. Her interests
for next year, like those of so many of
the rest of us, are uncertain.

RUTH ELIZABETH CAMBRIDGE
We are very sorry that Ruth didn't
come to Amherst sooner. She,s been with
us only two years, and during that time
always quiet, unobtrusive, and just plain
nice. She likes to swim, skate, and ski,
and watch nearly any sport. Music, too,
is one of her pleasures, and she plays the
bugle. Perhaps even that instrument is
musical when Ruth plays it. Ruth in-
tends, as her life work, to soothe the suf-
fering. She is going to be a nurse.
MARGARET ROSE CLARKE
While Margaret does not engage ac-
tively in too many sports, she likes to
watch them. Somebody has said she likes
the boys. Anyway she blushes prettily.
We know she likes music. She likes both
hearing it and making it, for she plays
the piano and sings. Margaret is one of
our class artists, and has done Hne work
on the scenery of our operettas. She
wants to work next year, and will suc-
ceed in her desire, too, we are guessing.
GERTRUDE MABEL COMINGS
Gertrude, otherwise known as "Gert"
or "Jimmy," is particularly fond of skat-
ing and hunting. She has been in our
chorus for four years, and also in the or-
chestra. Next year she intends to start
training to be a nurse. Her quiet, pleas-
ant, and efficient way of doing things
makes her well fitted for this work. It
might be worth being sick to have a
nurse like Gert.
BARBARA JANE CRITCHETT
Barbara is one of the most popular
girls in the class. Ask anyone. She,s got
a finger in nearly every school activity,
and has enough pep and vitality for ten
girls. Sports are Barbara's meat. Havenlt
you often seen her down at Blake Field
or at the tournament? She's not just a
grand-stand enthusiast, however. She's
a fine swimmer, skater, and skier. She is
an outstanding member of the Outing
Club, queen of the winter carnival last
year. Barbara, three years a member of
Dramatics Club, gave us a fine portrayal
of the passionate movie siren, Letty
Lythe, in the Junior Play. The whole
town is still talking about it. We have
biggerand better parties with "B" as
chairman of the social committee of the
Tri-S, where she's been a loyal member
for four years.
MARJORY RUTH CRossMAN
Marjory does more than merely look
at sports. She skis, skates, and has play-
ed basketball two years on our class
team. She's been in Tri-S four years, and
has joined the Outing and Photography
Clubs. If music holds powers to charm
the savage breast, Marjory is unusually
charming. She,s had no less than seven
years of piano lessons. She's also been
two years in chorus and a year in the
MARCUS STEPHEN DAMERST
When we read in the papers twenty
years hence that "Marc" is a member of
every important club in New York, we'll
know where he got his start. I-Ie's been
in Debating Club, Camera Club, and
Hi-Y, to say nothing of Chorus, Glee
Club, Band, and Orchestra. Music is one
of 'tMarc,s" chief interests, and he has
played the violin, fife, piano, and piccolo.
He is also deeply interested in photog-
raphy and pharmacy. He intends to spend
one more year here, and then enter the
Massachusetts College of Pharmacy.

FRANCES BEALS DARLING
Frances is sometimes called "Fran', or
"Francois" She is the real local product,
and has spent all her seventeen years in
Sunderland. Her native hills have, it
seems, inspired her with her love of ski-
ing. She also likes to swim. "Fran" is
musically inclined, having been three
years in chorus. She plays the guitar,
an unusual accomplishment. Photography
interests "Fran," and she is an ardent
Camera Clubber. "Fran,' intends to be a
stenographer or a secretary. With that in
mind, she is heading, next year, for
Northampton Commercial College.
JAMES ROBERT DAVIS
Jim is one of the outstanding charac-
ters of our class. His interests and his
abilities are varied. He has been manager
of both the football and the track teams.
He enjoys skiing, shooting, and hunting,
and has played on his class basketball
teams. He likes mechanical drawing and
writing, and keeps us up-to-date in his
"On the Boulevard" column in the
Graphic. Jim has been active in many
clubs. He is a member of Hi-Y, and has
organized the Hrst Amherst patrol of Sea
Scouts. No account of his activities
would be complete which did not men-
tion his song leading. People who can't
sing and hate to sing, "like it" when he
leads them. Next year he will go to
Hemps Hill Diesel School in Boston.
JOHN ALEX DEMKO
John Demko, known to his associates
as "Dink," is one of our all-round ath-
letes. He's been on the football team two
years, playing guard and halfback. He's
played guard two years on our basketball
team. In baseball he's .played catcher,
third base, short-stop, and fielder. He
also likes skiing, skating, and fishing. His
record is to be envied not only in the
field of sports, but also in that of studies.
You may not think brains go with brawn,
but "Dink" is a Pro Merito member. We
will remember John for all of this, but
most of all because we like him.
KARL Joi-IN DIHLMAN
Karl is one of the few who come from
Shutesbury every morning, rain or shine.
Dressed in a colorful suit, striped shirt,
and a gay necktie, he is invariably care-
free and good natured. In school Karl
likes Physics and business subjects. He
intends to go to college, and wants to
take up commercial work. Karl is one of
the "Gang" and we all join in to say
"Good luck, Karlf'
SHIRLEY ELOISE FAIRCHILD
Shirley Fairchild is not, so far as we
know, related to Shirley Temple. We
like her better. She is full of fun, and
often kids us. She likes to watch all
kinds of sports, but the one she likes
best to play is ping-pong. She likes mu-
sic, and plays the piano. She is an ardent
member of the Grange. In addition to
her other accomplishments, this local girl
Qshe was born and bred in Sunderlandj
is an honor student. She says she wants
to be an occupational therapist, what-
ever that is.
MARY CECILIA ANN FLEBUT
"MiHles', has the traditional Amherst
High interests in sports and music. She
likes sliding, skating, swimming, and ten-
nis. She also likes to watch good games.
She has taken chorus three years, and
plays the piano. She likes to hear good
music, read good books, and see good
movies. Mary is also a clubwoman. She
has been in Tri-S, and has organized
small clubs in her community. Next year
she intends to work.
HELEN AvIs FLINT
Helen certainly puts life into every-
thing she attempts. That,s why she's
such a favorite on dance committees. She
was the vivacious heroine of our Junior
Play, and gave Paul something to work
for. Dancing is her favorite indoor sport,
and well it might be. Swimming is what
she likes out of doors. She is one of the
best commercial students, and is going
on to bigger things in that line.
Good luck, George! We know you will
succeed wherever you go, no matter what
you attempt. George is a noted violinist,
concert master of the orchestra, and a
member of the band. He is also a mem-
ber of the Hi-Y, and that highly esteem-
ed Pro Merito society. He is a friendly,
likeable fellow, modest and dependable
to the nth degree.
Right or wrong, my way's right!
"Charlie" says little, but does a great
deal. Nothing stumps him although it
may stop him for a short while. He is a
favorite pupil in Miss Batchelder's math
classes during the day, but after school,
he can be found romping around the
gym floor, playing basketball for the
class of '37.
RICHARD WARREN GRAVES, JR.
We think Dick fwho comes from Sun-
derland, by the wayj prides himself on
being the bane of several teachers' ex-
istences. Dick's an out-door fellow, with
plenty of flashy "lumberjack" shirts. If
dance committees want corn, pumpkins,
or any other oddity, Dick is right there
with them. He's sociable and good-na-
tured, always. He managed the basketball
team with ,the same helpful spirit he does
everything. Dick plans to go to Stock-
bridge next year.
FREDERICK FRANCIS GUYOTT, JR.
Fred is a pleasing combination of
assorted talents. He excels in both bas-
ketball and baseball. When there is fig-
uring or ticket collecting to be done,
Fred is right there. Although he's on the
"Gold Bugi' staff, and business manager
of the "Graphic,', he has time left to get
good marks. His interests are gadgets,
arguing, and flashy clothes. Fred's serious
interests are engineering and athletics,
and his future profession will be in one
or the other.
LOUIS MERsEREAU GUYOTT
Happy-go-lucky Louis-Either in a
circle of friends or driving around town
in the green "Chevvy." He has two hob-
bies: puttering in the Chem Lab and play-
ing pocket billiards. His one ambition,
however, is to graduate from A. H. S.
SOPHIE JOAN HANIESKI
Sophie is not too widely known, but
is truly appreciated by her own friends,
to whom she is affectionately known as
'fHoney." She is a good-natured girl who
can find something to chat and laugh
about at any time. She has chosen to
study Home Economics after leaving
high school. To those who know her, she
is a real "Honey.H
DAVID MALCOLM HARRIS
Dave is popular with both the girls
and fellows, probably because of his
cheerful disposition and fondness for ath-
letics. He played football for two years,
and has been on the track team for its
two years of existence. Dave is in the
-..egg 39 ggi..-
Outing Club and Camera Club. He
would like nothing better than to get his
1929 Ford going. Mechanical Drawing
is his favorite subject, track and skiing,
his favorite sports.
IRVING RAY HASKELL
Every day, Irving comes all the way
down from Shutesbury to join our "hap-
py family." He is a quiet, unassuming
lad, especially fond of Chemistry. He is
known as a baseball player, and has been
on the team for several seasons. His ideas
about the future are vague, but "Irv"'
will probably take up something in the
PHILIP JONES HASTINGS
"Phil" Hastings is the peopleis choice
-and the teachers? He well merits the
honor of being class president three
years, vice-president, one. He goes in
for acting and music in a big way-or-
chestra and band, four years, and in a
class and a club play. He swims and
skis, and supervises dances with great
success. "Phil" wants to study civil en-
gineering, but he hasn't decided where.
HAROLD JOHN HAWLEY
i'Calm and easy, a complete gentleman
in disguise." If a person isn't thoroughly
acquainted with "Hal," he can't properly
appreciate him. The Pelham air is
responsible for this chap's pep, and all his
life, Hal will probably crave that air.
He is level-headed, knows right from
wrong, and seems to be started for
"Rabbit" can drive a tractor over the
hills and meadows with the greatest of
ease. Girls, however, come and go, but
not with t'Rabbit." He pays little at-
tention to them, and, in the future, plans
to join the Army and Navy to "see the
ALEC EARLE HRYNYSHYN
Alec is familiarly known to everyone
as "Red.,, Although he is rather serious,
he is, by no means somber. Since he lives
over "thar" in Sunderland, most of his
interests lie outside of the school proper.
That he is a far-seeing chap is proven by
his choosing television for his career.
Well, weill be seeing you, "Red.',
PARKER DOLE HUBBARD
"Park" is a good-natured fellow who
can usually be found having a swell time
with his many Sunderland pals. Dramat-
ics, photography, skating, and swimming,
are a few 'of the things which he enjoys.
He has served as both actor and stage
manager in the interests of Drama. In
the .future he plans to iustrictly meditate
the thankless muse" in the halls of
M. S. C.
WILLIAM LLOYD HUBBARD
'iHubb', is a rather serious student,
but not too serious-minded. He has been
a member of the Dramatic Club for sev-
eral years, and was a member of our
Junior Play cast. Art and dramatics-
those are the things that interest Lloyd.
Heis quite a capable artist, too! "Hubb,',
after attending Mount Hermon for a
year, hopes to continue his studies at the
Massachusetts School of Art.
ANNA JANETTE HUTSON
This peppy lass, who calls Sunderland
home, is usually hailed as "Hot-chaf' Her
nickname indicates her character and in-
terests. Anna is a tall, lively girl who
0 Sie --
loves fun and good times. She is an en-
thusiastic lover ofiall kinds of sports,
and was a faithful member of the girls'
basketball team for two years.
, DUDLEY FRANCIS IRWIN
His is a versatile personality. He seems
to be able todo everything but please
the teachers. "Dud" is liked by every-
one, and is an important addition to any
gathering. He's a Hi-Y member, and
Junior year he played football. What he
likes best is flashy shirts, and after that
he goes for anything with uswingf' He
plays the piano,ifife, and guitar. His
hobby, watching the clock, his future,
HELEN VIOLA JOHNSON A
Interested, thoughtful, and quiet,
"Heck,' is usually found with a pleasant
smile and some chatter for her friends.
She is not very active in school affairs,
but, nevertheless, she is missed when she
isn't with us, as her absence this year
proved. "Heck" is a welcome addition to
any class because of her shy manner and
PAUL ALBION JOHNSON
Paul is vice-president of the Hi-Y.
Ever since his appearance in our Junior
Play, "The Whole Townis Talking," he
has been known as an actor of no mean
ability. He is quiet and reserved but, as
every one knows, ustill waters not only
run deep, but clear and true." It is with
regret that we are forced to say ugood-
byen toia friend and a gentleman. Suc-
cess to you, Paul!
ROBERT LLOYD JONES
The lad with the dark hair and eyes,
full of grins, laughter, and fun-that's
'tjonseyf' He can be found in a serious
mood, but is usually seen joking with his
pals. Who is the envy of the cheerlead-
ers? Right. Jonseyl He is a member of
the band and orchestra, and a diversion
in any classroom. You'll be seeing him
again as atP. G.
IRENE AGNES KARPINSKI
Irene, who is always found smiling and
cheerful, is most appropriately called
"Sunshine" by her many friends. Her
membership in the Pro Merito is proof
that she stands high in her classes. Many
of us are sorry that the bus kept us from
knowing this friendly and jolly girl
more intimately. We will, however, al-
ways remember uSunshine's" merry smile.
RUTH MARY KENNEDY
"Kennedy"-sometimes described as
"full of vitamins"--seems to be every-
where and in everything. Swimming,
skating, tennis are all right in Ruth,s
line. Besides these out-door activities, she
is an artist with considerable reputation,
as well as a dancer of some distinction.
Her cheery disposition is part of her suc-
cess in all lines of her endeavor.
STANLEY JOHN KISELEWSKI
Wherever you see Stan you'll find Ed
Miller. They are two inseparables. Stan
is a friendly lad, generous with his smile,
especially to the girls. The class basket-
ball team has always had Stan as guard.
Weire guessing he'll end up in the
sciences, but he does not know, yet, him-
self. Fishing and hunting are his all-year
round sports. We,ll miss him!
MARION LUCY LACLAIRE
Marion, known to her more intimate
friends as "Chippa," comes all the way
from Leverett. Q'Chippa,' is a quiet, rath-
I EFI? 1-
er shy young lady, but her best friends
consider her a grand scout. She likes to
swim and take long hikes through the
surrounding hills. Her favorite subject
is Chemistry fperhaps it's the teacherj!
Marion wants to become a trained nurse.
She ought to succeed.
ARCHIBALD HAXVLEY LAUDER
Scotty's the lad. He dances like
George Raft. Oh, yes, ask him if his
French homework is done, and he will
answer with a grin, HI wasn,t heref,
Tennis, of all sports. Then, "give me a
quiet smoke and a soda." Rather a rare
fellow this Scotty, who charms a few
girls, and then forgets them.
STELLA RUTH MAISNER
Here is a girl who likes fun, but does
not neglect her studying for it. She not
only dances, swims, and rides horseback
well, but she is also one of the leaders of
her class as a Pro Merito member. Stella
has plenty of spare time for exciting
books and good movies. Furthermore, we
see her playing the violin in our orches-
tra. She likes French, English, and Al-
gebra, but in Chemistry about all she
likes is the teacher. Always even-tem-
pered, she is a loyal and true-blue friend.
DOROTHY LOUISE MARTIN
"Dottiev is one of our commercial
students. She is seen, but not often
heard. Her black eyes and gay smile add
a good deal to the appearance of the
Senior class. She hasn't made up her mind
yet about the future. Her heart is set
upon being either a private secretary or a
GENEVIEVE CECILIA MATUSKO
Genevieve is another of our commuters
from North Amherst. Life is sweet to
Genevieve, and she makes everything that
way. Boys may come and go, but Gene-
vieve stands by and takes her choice.
Well-liked by the faculty, she should be
just as popular in the business world.
GEORGE EDWARD MCLAUGHLIN
George is one of the most unassuming,
and at the same time, one of the most
popular boys in our class. His job as
secretary of the Hi-Y this year proved
this. "MCU is the woman-hater of our
class. His favorite subject is Chemistry.
In the hunting and fishing meets George's
skill is respected by the older men in
town. It should be, for he beats them
frequently! George will find his voca-
tion and recreation in the fields and
JAMES GARFIELD MILLAR
Jim might do anything any time. He
blows his French horn till the valves
stick. Now and then he jumps up in
class with a strong idea in government.
Quiet at times, but in his conversational
style he knows what he's talking about.
The whole class, as well as Mr. Foth,
will remember Jimmy.
EDITH WILLIAMS MILLER
'QEdie" is a friendly and charming
girl who is never found without the right
answers. Yes, she is a member of the
Pro Merito. By being a member of the
Junior Play Cast and Dramatics Club,
she showed her interest in acting. Since
she took a commercial course, we may
meet her again some day as a successful
EDWARD WALTER MILLER
"Ed" is that senior often seen around
the lunch counter or Room 19. No class
bothers him. His cheerful laugh and
mischievous grin tide him over all gloomy
days. Just watch "Bud" get by, with a
twinkle in his eye.
ETHEL MARY MOORE
Mary likes sports, but prefers to be an
interested spectator. She plays the piano
and likes to accompany other instru-
ments. Much of the success of "The
Mikadon was due to Mary's tireless zeal
in accompanying the cast. Her favorite
hobbies are swimming and hiking. Her
chief ambition is to become a nurse, in
some large hospital such as the Massa-
CONSTANCE MARIE NESTLE
"Little Miss Marker" Business, busi-
ness, business - down the hall Connie
goes! Connie is always hurrying and she
has plenty to do. She has been our treas-
urer for four years, and in everything
from Tri-S to the Inter-Class Plays. Con-
nie may be a teacher but she is still un-
decided upon her career. The shortest
girl in the class with one of the tallest
HAMILTON IRVING NEWELL
"Ham's,' blond hair has long been a
subject for jest. He, however, is a jester
on his own account, and has a humorous
comment to make on almost any occa-
sion. His favorite pastime is playing
baseball, and during the season, when not
playing with the team, he is often found
RALPH ELWIN NEWPORT
"Elf, or "Newp," as his friends call
him, is a polite, soft-spoken fellow, who
always has a friendly greeting. He is
quiet and unassuming, and although he
has taken little part in extra-curricular
activities, he is known to his classmates,
both in and out of school, as a true gen-
EDWARD JOSEPH O,BRIEN
This tall, thin fellow is a "fIend', in
Chemistry and Mathematics. He is also a
clever leader and business man. He was
president of the Outing Club and one of
our best skiers. Being business manager
of the Gold Bug, playing on the foot-
ball team, and taking part in the Junior
Play, Ed showed us all how versatile he is.
TESSIE GLADYS OLKOWSKI
This cheerful member of our class
comes from Sunderland. She brightens
up the classroom with her smile and her
intellect. She is always on the Honor
Roll. Tessie, shining light of the com-
mercial classes, would like best to End
employment as "somebody,s stenogf' We
know she'll do well at anything she un-
dertakes, as she always has done here
ALBERT CARLISLE OWEN
We don,t see or hear much of t'Bud"
in after-school activities. He is one of
those strong, silent men from East
Street. After school, he goes home to
work, in school he says little and minds
his own business. Nevertheless, there is
a lesson in "Bud's,' character that we
could all learn.
FRANK WILLIAM PAGE
Frank is an able athlete. He plays
football, basketball, and baseball. Al-
though not a giant in stature, he is speedy
and deceptive. With his ready wit and
quick tongue, "Frankie', always sees that
no one 'tputs anything overu on him
without a snappy comeback.
JENNIE MARY PARADISE
Jennie is one of the sportswomen of
the High School. She is very fond of
swimming and fishing, and indoors, she
likes dancing, singing, and dramatics.
Jennie was a member of the Crlee Club
for two years and a member of the
Dramatics Club for one year. She is
planning to do office work, and later go
to Commercial College. We know her
ready smile will take her a long way.
VICTOR WILLIAM PATNAUDE
A tall, red-haired lad, "View spends
most of his time outside of school in
driving the truck of the Main Street Oil
Co. Perhaps some day he may "strike it
rich" in oil, but even then he would
laugh at the idea of being anything but
one of the fellows.
EDWARD WALTER PELIS
Here is another small-sized athlete.
"Eddie,' is small, but mighty, he is a
"dead-eye" in class basketball and a
snappy baseball player. He does not put
himself forward, but when urged, he will
often, with a twinkle in his eye and a
grin, admit some of his athletic skill.
ROSE HELENA PLICHTA
Nothing seems to worry Rose. The
hardest lessons appear to be easy for her.
Even work in the most difficult subject
--25 44 E
never causes her to frown. A little of
her cheerful philosophy of life, which
lightens the hardest tasks, would be a
valuable asset to a great many of us.
JOSEPH ADAM RASKEVITZ
"Rassy" commutes from North Am-
herst, is popular with both sexes, and is
particularly fond of hunting and Hshing.
Automobiles, too, interest him, especially
that Ford we hear so often, and can al-
ways distinguish from other cars. Ask
the study pupils in the Auditorium 6th
period about it. Joe is noted for his hasty
decisions and his argumentative spirit,
which is always alive and sparkling in
Room 2. I
FRANCES AMES RICHARDSON
'tFranny" has a cheery smile and a
pleasant "Hello!', for everyone. We sel-
dom see Fran in a blue mood. She likes
to sew, cook, and play the piano. Do-
mestic? Yes, perhaps, but "Franny" also
goes in for sports. Drawing, too, occu-
pies much of her leisure time. "Franny"
has many outside interests, but she is
never too busy to be friendly and help-
ful to her classmates.
HELEN EVELYN SABELONVSKI
Although "Subby" hails from Sunder-
land, she has been an active member in
basketball for two years. Her friends
know her to be a good sport in spite of
her seriousness during class hours. Out-
side of school, "Subby,' is seen usually
engaged in her favorite pastimes,-skiing,
sliding, and roller-skating. Her future
plan is to find prosperity in New York.
We wish you luck, t'Subby',!

ANNE CATHRYN SAVISKY
Anne is a sweet, quiet, modest miss
from Sunderland. Because of the long
bus ride to and from school, she does not
participate in extra-curricular activities.
Her alert conscience and the friendly
way in which she goes about her duties
will take her far up the ladder to suc-
cess. Her Pro Merito rating also predicts
this. Anne reveals her true feelings to
only a few, but she greets all with a
pleasant smile. V
HILDA ARLINE SCARBOROUGH
Our conscientious t'Tiny," with a smile
for everyone, is sure to be a success in
whatever she chooses for her career. She
likes to cook, sew, and travel. "Tiny's',
acquaintances know, too, that she har-
bors a passion for knitting. This doesn't
prove that she may always be found "by
the f1reside," however, because she likes
to skate, as well as knit. Our "Tiny"
is versatile. A
DOROTHY VIVIAN SHAMPO
Dottie, the Debater. How she loves
it! She has been on both the Interschool
and Interclass teams. When she's not
making fun in a group, she is reading.
She likes both history and music. Al-
ways, she is an industrious and cheerful
worker, a kind and loyal friend.
MARGARET BRIDGMAN SHAW
Literary, musical, social affairs -
Marg's in them all. Editing the Graphic,
working on the Gold Bug Staff, singing
in the "Mikado,,' serving on dance com-
mittees, doing honor work in English-
all at the same time. Vivacious, versatile,
always with ideas stored up in her blond
head, Marg loves life and makes the most
-at 45 E
DONALD TALMADGE SHERMAN
Never far from a laugh, interested in
all sports, especially in track, and in a
certain "sport" in '40-that's Don. He
also has musical talent. Remember "The
Music Goes Down and Aroundn? Al-
ways dependable and ready, Don has
enough determination to jump all ob-
stacles and emerge happy and smiling.
He is an all-round likeable chap, and a
jolly good fellow among "reg'lar guys."
WILBUR OAKS SHUMWAY
Red truck, girls, and Bill, the three
are practically synonymous. Bill is as
interested in the social life of the school
as in its athletics. He is a member of
our football team, and is often seen at
various "shin-digs." By being a member
of the band and a Hddler in the orchestra,
Bill proves that he has musical talent.
He's a good fellow all-round.
JOSEPHINE THERESA S1LvoN1c
t'Josie" is our active and boyish lass
from North Amherst. -When not on the
basketball floor, shooting for baskets, she
is found on the skating rink. She is also
a swimming enthusiast. "Jon does' not go
in for social affairs, perhaps because her
interests lie outside of A. H. S. She is,
however, a good "sport" and an interest-
CORNELIUS WILLIAM SLACK
Cornelius, a newcomer to Amherst
High this year, quickly won many
friends. He is a steady, thoughtful per-
son who would part with his shirt if his
friend needed it. His skating ability is
greatly admired by his friends. Those
quick answers in Review Math and
Physics make us look up to him. Keep
that steady pace, Cornelius, and you'll
ROBERTA GRETCHEN SLOCOMBE
This red-haired miss joined our class
in our Sophomore year. She joined our
Tri-S, and slipped into our routine very
easily. "Betty" is very fond of winter
sports, especially skating. Other inter-
ests are music and dancing. She says
she'll probably do office work in the fu-
ture but Qdon't tellj, her secret ambi-
tion is to be an air-hostess.
PHILIP CUSHMAN SMITH
Phil is an expert player on various
musical instruments: saxophone, clarinet,
oboe,-take your choice. He has played
basketball and football. Phil frequently
attends our social functions. His sense
of humor is unusual, and he is a punster
of note, dating from Junior High days.
What more can one ask of a man?
ANNA ELIZABETH SNICKER
Anna is one of those people who make
a bee line for the Styx of Sunderland im-
mediately after school. When she gets
there, she amuses herself by ice-skating,
or reading murder stories. This girl will
probably make a good secretary, as she is
a good commercial student and enjoys
typing. She is planning to continue her
education at State College.
DOROTHY JANE SPENCER
Happy-go-lucky Dot is always the life
of the party. A spirited lass who is al-
ways on "the go" and is never too tired
to lend a helping hand. Although she is
an expert in the culinary art, she has
the ambition to become a proficient secre-
tary. Boys as well as girls think she is
a grand sport.
ARTHUR PHILLIPS STEDMAN
Phil is that likeable fellow who has a
lot of muscle. The band and orchestra
would have a hard time getting along
without his steady "umph" on his tuba
or large sousaphone. Phil is a willing
worker and one of Amherst Highis best
all-time ticket sellers. The old High
School is going to miss you, Phil. Good
luck! We're stacking our chips on you.
MARTHA HUNTINGTON STIFLER
Wfhat we owe to Martha we can never
express in words. As Editor of our year-
book she demonstrated executive ability,
as a member of our class she made a
record which distinguishes her as a schol-
arg as our "Mrs Simmons," in the Junior
Play, she gave evidence of both her
dramatic ability and class spirit, as artist
and author, she has repeatedly shown her
talents. And as busy as she is, she always
finds time to be a friend to all of us.
We are proud to acknowledge her as a
representative of Amherst High School,
and are confident of her success at Mt.
'tArchie', is a 'tman's manf' cheerful
and gentlemanlike. He has many inter-
ests, but his greatest is swimming. He
was the able president of the Camera
Club in hisisenior year. He is the kind
of person who always prefers to be be-
hind the camera, rather than in front of
it. One of the little known, but most
interesting facts about Archie is that he
enjoys bicycle trips to Youth Hostels in
BERTHA LOUISE STRONG
Bertha is a quiet, serious girl who is
known to her best friends as "Bern"
She is not very active in school affairs,
but has many interests outside of school.
Although she is rather reserved, she is a
good student and a good friend. She
has not revealed her future plans, but
we know that, whatever they are, she is
capable of carrying them out success-
PAUL JOSEPH THIBODO
A calm exterior, but beneath that ex-
terior is a true friend. Bicycle riding is
Paul's favorite sport. He is a hard work-
ing lad, out to succeed at the price of
any effort. He leans toward the scien-
tific subjects. No matter in what Paul
is interested, his heart is there, too.
ARTHUR SIDNEY THORNTON
It makes no difference to this lad
whether he is called "Blondie," "Big
hearted Arthur," or just plain 'QArt." He
comes to any one of them. Art hasn't
yet made up his mind as to what his
life work will be, but, believe you us,
when he does, he will succeed. The Hi-
Y has enjoyed his membership for the
past two years. Amherst High now says,
i'Good-bye, and good luck, Arthur."
BARBARA ADAMS TIFFANY
Barbara is very evasive when you want
to question her. She admits playing the
piano, and singing in the choir. Another
secret is that she enjoys baseball more
than any other sport. She goes to most
of the local games, and is interested in
the radio during baseball season. Bar-
bara works in the Cannery in the sum-
mer. Her future is, as yet, undecided.
LEONA REGINA TOCZYDLOWSKI
Ask Miss Dwyer who the good little
pest is that is always in Room 7 and
her prompt reply is sure to be t'Leona."
She has a pleasing personality, and is a
friend of all. We don't know what the
Graphic would do without Leona's fast
nimble fingers. She promises to make a
good secretary for some prominent busi-
LILLIAN ALTHEA TURNER
"Al" came to us from Adams High,
in her Junior year. ,Before coming she
was a member of "The Crimson Keyv
and Adams High Philatelic Club Qstamps
to youj. In Amherst High she joined
the Tri-S and the Dramatic Club. Un-
obtrusively Althea found a place in the
scheme of things here. She has worked
in the Jones Library, and we are sure
she'll be an ideal librarian.
DAVID FARNUM VAN METER
In or out of class, this tall, handsome
lad is aloof, rarely volunteering, but al-
ways having the right answer when ask-
ed. Hi-Y has bigger and better meetings,
as well .as feeds, since DaVe,s been presi-
dent. Skiing, ujazzing it" on the piano,
or playing the bass viol, he is perfectly
at home. Everyone knows that Dave is
intensely interested in science and should
be a capable electrical engineer.
ANDREW CLEVELAND WARNER
"Andy" is one of those fellows of
whom we see only a little, but would like
to see a lot more. He is so busy with his
farm work that he doesn't have time for
sports, although he is keenly interested in
basketball and football. He is a member
of the Hi-Y. Next year "Andy" plans to
go to Stockbridge. He is following in the
footsteps of his grandfather, which may
lead not only to a successful dairy busi-
ness but to the State Legislature.
HAZEL BESSIE WARNER
Hazel, better known to her friends as
"Duck," is a Sunderland product. She
is athletic and her favorite sport is horse-
back riding. Hazel is interested in com-
mercial subjects, and she hopes to be-
come a medical secretary. She has been
a member of the Student Council for two
years and also a member of the Tri-S.
Hazel is undecided where she will go next
HELEN ELIZABETH WARNER
"Lell" was a newcomer only last year
and has hardly had time to get acquaint-
ed. Reading and knitting are her indoor
hobbies, while out-of-doors skiing is the
attraction. Helen is a good all-round
student, but she likes English best. She,s
lots of fun when you know her.
j MYRTLE ELIZABETH WARNER
Myrtle, alias t'Myrt,' or "Turtle," is
another of the Sunderland "Warners.',
Her favorite sport is swimming. She is
a member of the Dramatics and Photo
Clubs. Her chief interests are dietetics
and commercial subjects. As to next
year, "Myrt" is undecided.
SOPHIE CATHERINE WASKIEWICZ
Always smiling, Sophie skates across
the ice ever so lightly, enjoying herself
to the utmost. She has a very pleasing
personality and her ways delight every-
one. She is a hard worker and a good
student with plenty of ambition to keep
her on the ladder to success.
STANLEY EDWIN WASKIEWICZ
, "Stan" is a versatile athlete, enjoying
basketball, swimming, skating, and base-
ball. Basketball is his favorite sport, and
... 5 I..
during the season he can always be found
on the floor, either during practice or a
game. In the summer, however, his time
is occupied with swimming and baseball.
Bernardine is known to all as just
"Bunny.', She is always ready to help a
friend, and everyone is her friend. Per-
haps we shouldn't tell, but at one time,
"Bunny" was an air-story enthusiast. She
has been a mainstay of the Glee Club
for three years. "Bunny,' seems to know
a lot about dietetics, and perhaps that
will be her work in the future.
EVELYN HARRIET WEAVER
A quiet, reserved girl, who has a very
good time in her own little circle of
friends. She likes Bookkeeping and Type-
writing and gets good marks in both sub-
jects. After school, she is a movie fan
and enjoys popular music. Even che
quietest people are mi-ssed when they
CHRISTINE LOUISE WOODARD
Christine likes skiing, skating, and
tennis, but swimming best of all. A reg-
ular outdoor girl, with photography as
her hobby. She gets her best marks in
Commercial Law, prefers Bookkeeping,
and hopes to be a good secretary. Smiling
and cheerful, always a steady worker
and a good friend.
HELEN ANNA WROBLEWSKI
Helen is another good-natured student
from Sunderland whom we do not see
after 2:30. With her friendly manner
and pleasant smile, however, she is known
to be popular in her circle of classmates.
She is also an ambitious student as her
Pro Merito rank testifies. Helen's leisure
time is spent in outdoor sports or strum-
m1ng on her gu1tar Her future IS un
dec1ded yet we know that she will suc
ceed in whatever she undertakes

VERONE ANN WZIONTKA
'tRonny', and lots of pep and energy
are the same. Just the girl to do errands,
always willing to help. Her cheery dis-
position and merry smile have given
her a place in the hearts of her many
friends that can never be filled by any-
one else. Singing in the 'tMikado,' or
working on her job--everything, she does
ANNA SOPHIE ZIMNOSKI
Anna is one of those girls who are
seldom seen, probably because she lives
in far-off Sunderland. However, Anna's
friends find her entertaining and amus-
ing, though sometimes she may be a bit
impulsive. She is often seen on local
dance floors, as dancing is her favorite
hobby. Walking, also, occupies much of
her leisure time. There are rumors that
Anna has already chosen her life work.

"You may relish him more in the
solclier than in the scholar."
A Pilgrim's Record
illffifb fha' girls representing the Daughters of the American Revolution from Connecticut
and Rhode lsland, l arrived at XVashington on the evening ol' April 16th, just in time
to be in the otlicial photograph oil' all the l3.A.R. Pilgrims. All the states in our country
were represented except Wyoming. There were 'forty-eight girls, because the District of
Columbia was represented. On that tirst evening we were given a party at the home of
one of the prominent lD.A.R. women in NVashington. After the party we had a few
hours' sleep at the Lee Hotel, our stopping place in the city.
Saturday mornin' from 6:45 until late evening we were 'ion the eo." Among
. t x CW D
the many places visited belore lunch were the Wfashington Monument, Pan-American
Union Building, Art Galleries, Smithsonian lnstitute and the
Supreme Court. Our guide in the Supreme Court Build-
welcomed by justice Roberts. After lunch on a sight-see-
ing trip we saw the beautiful cherry blossoms, the Embassies
and historical places. the Botanical Gardens, NVashington
Cathedral, and the Lincoln Memorial. l was greatly im-
pressed by the Lincoln Memorial because of its simplicity
and its exquisite beauty. From the monumental inscriptions
on the walls, l could almost hear Lincoln speak. The reflect-
ing lagoon between the Memorial and the XVashington Mon-
ument, mirroring the forms of these two structures and that
of the Capitol Dome, is a beautiful spot. lnstead of going
to sleep after the busy day, we went to the movies by our-
selves while our D.A.R. hostesses were otherwise occupied.
Sunday was a great day! XVe were the guests of the St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
NVith ,President General of the DAB., Mrs. Becker, we had luncheon at the famous
Maytlower Hotel. Massachusetts received much honorable mention because the ex-
honorable General, Mrs. Magna. lives in Holyoke. Our table was in the form of a
horseshoe. elaborately decorated. An orchestra played while we ate. ln the afternoon
we went to Arlington and Mount Vernon. Miss Ann NVashingto.n, a descendant of
George Washington, was our hostess here. Back in the city, at night. l saw one of the
most beautiful sights that l have ever seen-the Congressional Library. NY'e were taken
through all the rooms, and had special permission to go through the book-stacks. l was
greatly impressed by the way in which books are carried from one floor to another. and
by the rapidity ot the machine which makes it possible for a person to receive between
300-400 books from any section of the library within one-halt hour. After this busy
dav. and walking many miles. we enjoyed a good sleep.
When we woke Monday morning the temperature was 93 degrees. but we were
too interested in the day's program to mind the heat. Alter a bacon and egg breakfast.
we visited the Archives Building. justice Building. Folger Library, Capital Buildings.
and saw Congress in session. A G-man was our guide through the justice Building. He
explained the Dillinger and Lindbergh cases very fully to us and interested us thoroughly.
NV e did not meet Nl. Edgar Hoover. because he was on a case. We were permitted, how-
ing explained the process of the Court session, and we were
ever, to go into his room to see his famous guns. I was made guest of honor at the
Folger Library Qthe Shakespearian Library which is the property of Amherst Collegej,
because I represented Massachusetts. It was very interesting to know that so many of
the original Shakespearian items were in the Library. Six of Shakespeare's signatures
are there: one on a jury case, a deed, and three on wills. Moving on to the Senate, we
were able to watch the opening of the session. Again, because I represented Massachu-
setts, I was taken into Representative Treadway's and Honorable Edith Rogers' rooms
to be greeted by them. NVe all went into Vice President Garneras room, and had great
fun trying on his hat and sitting in his chair. Wfhen he arrived, he seemed like an old
friend. After lunch we were greeted at the Wfhite House by Mrs. Roosevelt. How I
enjoyed touching the famous gold piano and sitting in a gold chair!
I Because the President was attending a baseball game we did not meet him. On
his return from the game, however, we stood on the Lee Hotel steps and waved to him.
Monday Night! ! '
Our big night, the night for which reallyuwe had come! Everybody was very
much excited. All the girls received flowers, boxes of candy, and telegrams during the
hustle of getting dressed. How important each of us felt!
At 8:30 we arrived at the great Constitutional Hall. No one can imagine what
a feeling each of.us had as we looked down from the gallery upon the thousands and
thousands of persons from all over the United States. One of the most beautiful sights
I ever saw was the falling of our American flag from above as the U. S. Marine Band,
led by Captain Bronson, played the Entrance March. That sight and the thrill of re-
ceiving a medal from the President General was an experience which forty-eight girls
will never forget.
The great fun of meeting different types of girls from all the states, of meeting
famous people such as the Ambassadors of Great Britain and France, the knowledge
gained from such a trip, can hardly be explained in words. Those who have visited
Washington may guess why- all the D.A.R. Pilgrims feel that our Capital is the finest
in the world.
To Phil Smiffa, a prominent member of our class, and one of our best musicians, goes
the credit for being the first to think of writing a Tournament March to properly
celebrate the annual gala event at Massachusetts State College. There is a tradition that
various musical groups provide programs as preliminary entertainment for the large
crowds that gather every night to watch the boys of the valley play basketball, and
to our Phil occurred the idea of composing a march especially for this occasion.
So successfully did he execute his idea that this composition, when played by
the Amherst High School Band, was hailed with delight and acclaimed as the official

Every one of ns has had at some time or other, the ambition to be a writer, to write
and publish his Own books. NOW ten of us have had that experience. We have not
only written our book, we have planned it, designed it, incorporated into it our ideal
of what a yearbook should be.
All of us believe that a yearbook should contain, as nearly as possible, the essence of
the class that writes it. We have been concerned with ourselves. We have tried to give
something Of the personalities and activities of every student in the class of 1937. We
have endeavored to make this GOLD BUG the book of our class, and neither a chance to
show off our abilities, or to concentrate on one small phase of our many-sided school life.
Under the experienced leadership of Miss Weeks, we have worked to give the class
of 1937 their book, the GOLD BUG.

Our junior Play was a great success. Perhaps the greatest reason for this success was
the fine and understanding direction Of Miss Ricker. Another reason was the excellence
of the cast, which numbered some of the best actors and actresses of our class. Further-
more, the play appealed because of the large number of humorous lines. Even the cast,
after saying their lines scores of times, burst into laughter at the dress rehearsal. No
one who has not taken part in a play can realize how much fun it is to work together,
or what a feeling of satisfaction one gets from having a part in a truly successful

The Hi-Y Club is an organization for Junior and Senior boys with the purpose: "To
create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of
Christian character." Our program this year has been one of variety, but the meetings
fall naturally into three groups: speakers, discussions, and ufeedsf,
Our guest speakers have covered a wide range of subjects. Personal experiences on
board ship told by Mr. Knudsen and Mr. King, interesting manipulations of numbers
by Mr. Haskins, tales of the air service by Mr. Kabis, a discussion of hypnotism,
mental telepathy, clairvoyance, and kindred subjects, by Dr. Glick, the story of a geo-
logical expedition by Dr. Loomis, "How to Thinkv by Mr. Wood, and the t'Romance
of the Clipper Ship" by Mr. Myrick suggest the variation of the programs. Further
variety was enjoyed by having, for the first time, a woman speaker, Miss Field, who
entertained us with pictures and the story of her trip to Europe.
just as interesting as these speakers, were the discussions led by members. We like to
think that our discussion about the new addition to the High School helped secure this
much needed structure. Archie Strong led a lively debate on "Prohibition', to which
all members contributed opinions.
The most popular and best attended meetings were the "feeds," A Hi-Y "feed" is
something to be remembered. Stew, hamburg, pancakes, and American chop suey headed
several of the menus.
Tncidentally, we are grateful to the mothers who donated homemade pies. Along with
ice cream, they furnished other desserts not to be forgotten. Basketball before supper
sharpened the appetites, and uchamberv music Qby members of the club led by Mr.
Fothj helped the digestion after the feasts.
Banquets, discussions, and speakers, all, by promoting good fellowship and wholesome
living, have given us a successful year.
Under the management of Barbara Critchett, Social Chairman, Doris Morin, Service
Chairman, and Thyrza Barton, Sport Chairman, the three sections of the Tri-S organi-
zation have had a busy and pleasant year.
The Sport Section has participated in interclass basketball under the able coaching of
Miss Pinnick. Long hikes and the everpopular Tennis Tournament were also sponsored
by the Sports Section.
The Service girls have been active in helping dress dolls at Christmas, and, under Miss
Perryis instruction, Hlling Thanksgiving baskets for distribution.
The Social Section, led by Miss Krasnecki, has enjoyed cooty and wassal parties, candy
pulls, and the big event of the year,-The Tri-S Prom.
Play-Day and the banquet in May finished off a successful and profitable year.

For a second time the Amherst High School Orchestra added to its laurels by winning
first prize in the orchestral contest at the Eastern States Exposition. Playing the martial
strains of the " Light Cavalry Overturen and the delightful melody of Bizet,s "Prelude
to the L'Arlesienne Suite," the orchestra won a well-deserved victory.
No other appearance, except at assembly, was made until December, when, because of
the many requests, the numbers which were played at the Eastern States Exposition
were repeated at the Parent-Teacher meeting.
Greatly encouraged by the response given these two concerts, the orchestra entertained
the large audience at the Junior Play, given at the Town Hall. Among the most
applauded pieces were t'The Semper Fidelis Marchv by Sousa and "The Swan" by
In February a concert was given in the Jones Library for the members of the D. A. R.
In March interludes were furnished at the annual Interclass Play Contest.
These appearances were climaxed by the great musical event of the year-the annual
Spring Concert of the Musical Clubs. This concert featured not only orchestral inter-
pretations, but also individual talent. The appreciation shown by the capacity audience
doubly repaid the efforts of the participating musicians.
The orchestra ended its splendid year with the playing of Mendelssohn's stately march,
"Athalia,,' at the graduation of the Senior Class on the evening of June twenty-third.
The Amherst High School Band, with its recently acquired maroon and white uniforms,
has added new zest and vim to the student body. Its spirited playing has given new
interest to the school's athletic events.
The Band,s Hrst appearance was at the Amherst-Belchertown basketball game, where
it helped the Amherst team win. The Band also played at the Amherst-Smith
On March 3, the Band furnished pre-game entertainment for the Western Massa-
chusetts Small High School Tournament at Massachusetts State College. Among the
numbers played was l'The Tournament Marchf' which was composed by first clarinetist
Philip Smith. On the final night of the tourney, Philip Smithis "Tournament Marchn
was honored by being recognized as the official Tournament march. On Thursday
night, the Band led the Amherst cheering section in the tournament game with
A concert was given by the Band for the March 8 meeting of the Parent-Teacher
Association. Two of the best received numbers were t'Peaceful Valleys,', featuring solo

Although weekly rehearsals continued, no major public appearance was made until the
night of the June meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association, at which time, in martial
rhythms on Sweetser Park, the Band completed its fourth year of happy experiences.

The 77Z677lbC'1'SbilJ of the chapter this year is twenty-four. Of this number, eighteen
are Seniors and six, Juniors. The fall convention was held at Greenfield High School.
The speaker of the morning, John W. Haigis, gave a very challenging address to
the "Future Leaders of Americaf, The spring convention was held at Drury High
School in North Adams.
This year, the Pro Merito Assembly came into being. At this assembly, four short
talks were given by members of our society-"History of Pro Merito" by Ruth Don-
ahue, "Conventions', by Edith Miller, "Junior Society" by John Donaldson, 'QWhy Are
NVe Here?" by David Van Meter. lt is sincerely hoped that this assembly will be
continued, with the purpose of telling the underclassmen something of Pro Merito
and its purpose.
Equipped with a new staff, new ideas, and a new advisor, the GRAPHIC started off on a
new tack. It sponsored a Poverty Dance for the Freshmen, which was a great financial
and social success. With Mr. Myrick as faculty advisor, Margaret Shaw as Editor,
Bill Holdsworth as assistant-editor, and a staff of lively boys and girls, the GRAPHIC
kept things popping. An occasional picture, a running ire of comment from James
Davis, some peppy and argumentative articles, and a few feature attractions, kept up
the interest all year. Its principle seemed to be not only to get news, but to make
news. Faithful members of the staff, not already mentioned, were Leona Toczyd-
lowsky, Gladys Archibald, Lawrence Donahue, Robert Watson, Ten-Broeck Baker,
and Itala Grondonicco. Miss Dwyer worked miracles in getting the material from
copy into a paper.

The Inter-School Play
rrWdjlSid8 Wdl',,, by Margaret Napier, our part in the Inter-School Plays, was the most
enjoyable one-act play of the year. Theodore Schoonmaker, in false whiskers, was the
pompous but likeable colonel. NancyeStedman, that "rebel and spy," was the lovely
young lady, who outwitted him. Lloyd Hubbard, the foppish sergeant, dropped the
gun in abject terror When he was ordered to shoot Nancy. Paul Johnson, the hostler,
slunk about mysteriously on his mysterious business. Kathleen Critchett, the garrulous
landlady, sent the audience into fits of laughter with her accounts of her genealogy
and general family history. Undoubtedly a large measure of this particular success Was
due to the expert coaching of Mr. Kenney, but each member of che cast enjoyed his
share not only of the responsibility but also of the fun.
The Dramatics Club
The D1'ama1fics Club has done unusually Well this year, under the careful guidance of
Miss Prendergast. Last fall the junior class chilled us to the marrow with that amazing
mystery, "The Bat,', in which lightning and thunder, murder, and robbery combined
to thicken the plot. At the Christmas assembly, the club presented an appropriate
play entitled "The Music Box." For the Inter4Class Play Contest, We, as a class,
produced "The Singapore Spider," admirably acted by Parker Hubbard, the old miser,
Althea Turner, the sinister housekeeper, Edward O'Brien, her husband, Wilbur Shum-
Way, the handsome sailor, and Myrtle Warner, his fiancee. The sophomore class won
the contest with its artistic production, "Sunset by Slantskyf, The freshmen and
junior classes presented "Dad,s Day On, if and "The Marriage Proposal." From
beginning to end, the entire year has been a grand one for the Amherst High School

The Student Council, which was started in 1922, has now become a permanent part
of the high school. The student body, once it has elected its representatives, presents
its problems and troubles to the Student Council. This council acts as a Supreme
Court in settling all the difficulties of the High School. Mr. Haskins also consults
council members on certain matters. This year the council has been interested in
several projects: obtaining more chairs for lunch room, so the girls can eat their
lunches comfortably, organizing a dancing class, finding some very good assembly
programs, at Mr. Haskins' suggestions, and electing a very creditable basketball manager.
Now the council feels, and rightly So, very proud of its accomplishments, of its Hne
president, Bill Holdsworth, and of its capable secretary, Constance Nestle.
The members of the Debating Club elected Lawrence Donahue as their president,
Dorothy Shampo, vice president, Ten-Broeck Baker, secretary, and John Vondell,
The first debate of the season was prepared by: Margaret Warne, Albert Bergeron, and
Esther Thayer on the negative, with John Vondell, Lawrence Donahue, Ruth Hamlin,
and Sally Dickinson onthe aflirmative side. The question was "Resolved: That the
six-period day in Amherst High School is best." The affirmative won.
Dorothy Shampo and Lester Buckman on the negative, John Vondell and Lawrence
Donahue on the affirmative debated the question, "Resolved: That Franklin Roosevelt
is the best man for the presidential chair." This was a no decision debate.
The biggest debate of the season was the inter-school debate with Hopkins Academy.
Margaret Warne and Esther Thayer had the affirmative side at the Jones Library on
the question, 'QResolved: That the government should own and operate all electric
utilitiesf' Lawrence Donahue and Dorothy Shampo debated on the negative side at
Hopkins Academy. Both Amherst teams won, and the four students debating won
points for the Stowell Cup. Hopkins Academy has defeated all schools except Amherst
on the electric utilities question.
At this writing the Juniors and Seniors are preparing the inter-class debate. "Resolved:
That the Supreme Court should be enlarged." The Juniors: Rae Perry and Robert
Dickinson have the aftirmative side and Dorothy Shampo and Lester Buckman have
The year's work will finish with the completion of the inter-class debate. The work
has included much valuable training not only in speaking but in reading and research.

The jwogwzm of the Outing Club has become fuller each year, and this year would have
gone down in history as remarkable, if the weather had permitted the plans for the
winter season to be carried out.
The autumn program started the year with a series of Saturday trips to Bull Hill to
prepare the Siopec for the winter's skiing. The girls of the club outdid themselves in
serving a fine banquet at which "Sandy', Schauffleur of Amherst College was the
principal speaker. A
The chief interest of the year was to have been skiing with a capital US." Trips were
planned to Tuckerman's Ravine, Blanford, and Pittsfield. A carnival iwas to have
been the highlight of the winter season, but Old Man Winter failed us, and what
skiing there was permitted no organized instruction or competition of any kind. A
carload of the more expert did go to Tuckerman's during the spring vacation. Although
the plans for the winter season were excellent, they could not materialize.
The spring season seemed to be the big one, with golf, tennis, hiking, and shooting on
the list. This year was the first one for golf, but we hope the sport is here to stay.
Tennis instruction was offered and there seemed to be a number of people interested.
There was a tournament in this sport as well as in golf. Hiking, too, was quite a
feature. Several overnight trips, one on the Long Trail in Vermont, as well as all-day
outings, were on the program. Shooting appeared as a new sport with only two or
three followers. Like golf, shooting is comparatively new in High School sports and
will need some time for development. '
The year was a successful one, especially so, if judged on the basis of everyone's
enjoying himself to the fullest.
S0074 after the beginning of the 1936-37 term, a group of photography enthusiasts met,
under the guidance of Mr. Swift, to form a Camera Club. Archie Strong was elected
president, Pete Kusminski, vice-president, and Paul Johnson, secretary-treasurer. To
give the members advice on the taking of better pictures, a program of speakers was
arranged, which included such well-known photographers as Professor Vondell, Mr.
Barnes, and Mr. Lacroix.
Another interest of the club, to develop and print their own films, was furthered by
demonstrations by Mr. Swift and talks by members. Members of the club were
allowed to use the facilities of the dark-room, so that they might do their own work
and practice what they had heard preached.
In order to create a new pride in better pictures, a contest was held each month and
prizes were awarded to the best of each division. There were so many excellent pictures
in the contests that is was decided to have a salon at the end of the year. All the
prize-winning prints were there and also many new ones. As an example of the year's
progress, a group of the "early" photographs was exhibited beside some of the "latest,'
prints. The contrast was evidence enough of the club's accomplishment.

On account of the loss of many stars from the champion nineteen thirty-Hve team,
the thirty-six aggregation went through a sub-par season, winning only two games out
of the seven.
The most painful defeat came when the boys of Northampton High took the measure
of the high-stepping Amherst lads by the close score of seven to six. This contest was
played under a drizzling rain and on a soggy, muddy field. Amherst's failure to convert
the extra point after a touchdown lost them a well-played, hard-fought game.

The season was started off with three successive victories before a loss was recorded.
After two defeats, five straight victories were recorded in Hampshire League 'competi-
tion, and at the end of the first half of the league games Amherst was tied for second
place with Smith Academy. Amherst's last league game ended in a one-point victory
for Hopkins. Amherst, who really deserved to win, had to yield to a superior team. In
the four-school tourney at Massachusetts State College, Amherst was decisively elim-
inated by Turners Falls.

After a revival of track last year under Mr. Myrick's direction, Amherst High is
starting its second season on the cinder paths.
Considerable success 'was achieved last year, for the team won theclass B championship
of the Western Massachusetts lnterscholastic Meet. This year because of the large
enrollment Amherst will be competing in class A. Meets are scheduled as follows:
April 29 Massachusetts State Freshmen
May 17 Agawam and West Springfield
May 29 Western Mass. Interscholastics
Mass. State Relays
p Springfield Classical' Qpendingj
A large number of candidates reported, many of whom Mr. Myrick is developing into
prospective point scorers, with his eye on the future, he has urged a number of fresh-
men to come out.
Letter men returning this year are: Roberts, Sherman, Herring, Pettijohn, Harris,
Jacque, Newport, Bosworth.
Much credit is due Mr. Myrick for organizing and promoting the sport. His success
last year surely showed the results of his efforts.
At this writing, the season is only beginning, but already two wins have been chalked
up by a hard-hitting Amherst team, led by Captain Demko, t'Wi1l,' Robinson, and
"Frankie" and "Len" Page, with "Flea,' Toczdlowski and "Bill" Shea flashing afield.
The outlook for a very successful season is exceptionally good as the team has two vet-
eran pitchers in "Curly', Doleva and "Cigar" Guyott, as well as an inield and outfield
both composed of experienced players.
Besides scheduling home games with Arms Academy, Hopkins Academy, Deerfield High,
and Smith School QHampshire League membersj , Amherst will play games with North-
ampton, Easthampton, Agawam, Smith Academy, and the Amherst College Freshmen.
