V: The Lord be with you.
R: And with thy spirit.
ALMIGHW Con, whose blessed Son our Savior jesus Christ
ascended far above all heavens, that he might fill all things:
Mercifully give us faith to perceive that according to his

God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Anthem by, the Choir
Lesson from the Gospels
Sermon by The Rev. James H. Clark
THE NICENE CREED
We believe in one Cod
the Father, the Almighty.
maker of heaven and earth.
of all that is seen and unseen.
Y'Ve believe in one Lord, Iesus Christ,
the only Son of Cod,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from Cod, Light from Light,
true Cod from true God, '
begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
for our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, '
he suffered, died, and was buried.
' On the third day he rose again
in fulfillment of the Scriptures:
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the, living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father.
With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

HIS year the editors have
tried to make the GOLD BUG a book
which will preserve, not only the mem-
ories of our experiences in the High
School, but also the other pleasant asso-
ciations We have had in Amherst. In
this project, as in so many others since
our freshman year, We have enjoyed
the friendly direction and Willing co-
operation of Miss MILDRED A. WEEKS.

Principal's Letter to the Class of 1938:
CYYl,ANY of you are finishing your formal school training now.
I hope you will all bear in mind that your education is only
well begun. No man finishes his education till death gif thenj.
Your choice is not between more education and none, but be-
tween kinds of education. I hope you will see to it that you
are among those admirable citizens who use the materials avail-
able to them: colleges, training schools, libraries, newspapers,
magazines, the radio, conversation and thought,-in the most
effective way. Results in living, in service to one's fellows, are
important, degrees are not.
We have helped you to this point, sometimes even in spite
of yourselves. From now on it becomes your responsibility to
choose the paths you will follow. Remembering that the way is
hard for those who would go far, I wish you not "Good Luckf'
not a "Peaceful Voyage," but rather "Successful Strugglesv!

were lfull o' Bristles Brush men, and that Wilfred Robinson was a star baseball player.
I-'rom Poughkeepsie, I drove directly to the city where I planned to spend a few
Jays. Iiirst of all, I went to the Plaza Hotel, and bumped right into Rae Perry and
K harlotte Goldthwaite who were working there. The special attraction in the floor
slum' was Mary Nichols, a dancer of renown. QTO lessen my amazement, Rae ex-
pl.11ned that Mary had an extraordinarily fine instructor, Ten-Broeck Baker.j Later
the same evening, I went to the Golden Ray Night Club Where I heard Betty Moran
sing. accompanied by Marc Damerst and his Rollicking-Rhythm-Makers.

The following day l made Amherst. As I drove up East Street, I heard Someone
roar: Ale-e-e-ec! XVhen l stopped the car Alma QYarterj Gervickas rushed u to
explain that she was only calling her husband. I suggested that she enter the Husbiind-
Callers' Contest. and then I asked her how many of the class of '38 Still lived in
Amherst and neighboring villages. She took a deep breath and then began: Dorothy
Boynton. Barbara Buxton and Josephine Drosdal, all married and known for their
domination over their husbands, Orman Glazier and his cousin, Elizabeth, and "Stet,'
Adams, owners of the Glazier-Adams Rifle Co., Lucille Deady, now simply a quiet
home girl: Leo Fleury, editor of the Shutesbury Journal, Forrest Reed, Fleury's staii
reporter: Stanly Pelis, a prize tobacco grower and Barbara Kendall, secretary to
one of the Selectmen.
I spent a few hours in Amherst before leaving for Boston. On that trip, while I
was buying some gas in Palmer, a big limousine parked beside my modest vehicle.
XVho was its occupant but Ruth Donahue of the Boston Social Register, peering at
me through her lorgnette? We talked together until we realized that the station
attendant was Oscar Tidlund and that his assistant was Elwin Newport. Oscar men-
tioned your riding school in East Brookfield and the fine new horses your partner,
Marjorie LeClaire, had just bought.
Next day in Boston, on Massachusetts Avenue, I noticed a fascinating bookshop,
run by "Virt,' Hatch, "Stevie" Barton and Doris Morin. "Virt" showed me the latest
product of Amherst High School, the 1948 Gold Bug. "Stev1e', got a kick out of
tellin me that Mary Hosford and Frances Kelly were nurses at an Old Men s Home in
Worcester. She also told me that Rachel Cowles was a missionary in Africa. Before I
left the shop, I asked Doris where I could ind a good beauty shop. She said Eustenia
Taraska and Nellie Tidlund had a splendid establishment a few blocks away, and she
thought Catherine Day was a manicurist there.
That afternoon in the Metropolitan Theater, before I took my seat, I visited
with Bennett Sheerman and Lawrence Smith, head ushers. There were several vaudeville
acts before the movie. The first act featured Ruth Holden, Bertha Walker, and Lillian
Towne, the "Human Chatterboxesf' Next came the 'tQuestion Box." Catherine Pylpetz
asked the questions in quick succession, and Joan Stanisiewski answered them. Leonard
Gardner was there to argue over both questions and answers. As the newsreel came on,
I heard the narrator say, "This is John Hutchings, your Pathe Reporter, bringing you
the news of che day in pictures." But that was a day of surprises, in the feature picture,

During our sophomore year our officers were: John Donaldson, president: XY'illiam
Holdsworth, vice president and Virtue Hatch, secretary-treasurer. The one thing we
shall never forget about our sophomore year was the production of "The Mikado".
Mr. Tarlow coached into stars several members of our class: XVilliam I-Ioldsworth.
Ted Schoonmaker, Irvin Plough, Mildred Cook and Ruth Donahue. The opera. given
on two nights, was a great success. Its humorous and catchy' songs were hummed
and whistled for several weeks afterwards by the Amherst High School students.
That year occurred the first really elaborate winter carnival the High School had
ever had. Held at Bull Hill, with "Bull" Jones as king, Barbara Critchett as his
queen, and Betty Barton, Thyrza Barton and Kathleen Critchett as the queen's at-
tendants, this carnival was a decided success. Later in the winter, Bill Shea went with
a group of our skiers to Pittsfield to take part in the races on the famous "Bousquetsi'

So passed two years of our high school life. At the half-way mark -we began
to see ourselves as dignified personages, maintaining a cold reserve before the wide-
eyed freshmen and elevated sophomores. As upperclassmen, we felt a new importance.

The Junior Play, the really great dramatic endeavor of our four years, was
coached by Miss Lee. Our choice was "The Bat," and our efforts were received with
much enthusiasm. For the Interclass Competition, one of Anton Tchekov's dramas,
'tThe Proposal," was selected. Although we were not awarded the decision, the per-
formance was a credit to our class. Not only has our class been fortunate in counting
among its members capable actors and actresses, but it also boasts of a composer,
Bill Holdsworth, who wrote and coached Cadvised by Mr. Tarlowj, an operetta
called "The Far Country".

In our Senior year, class officers remained the same. The seniors' work of collect-
ing material for the Gold Bug began and continued successfully under the supervision
of Bill Holdsworth, editor-in-chief.
Rehearsals were organized for another operetta, "Pinafore,', directed by our new
and versatile music master, Mr. Alviani. Most of the leading roles were to be taken
With February, came the rush of making out applications for various colleges.
This work impressed upon us the fact that our time was rapidly drawing to a close.
New interests, we realized, would soon occupy our days, but never, we felt certain,
would the memory of four years spent in Amherst High School fade.

Will be silent of our laughter
Our hearts and spirits will remain

THE PIOUS BIRCH
'Twas here on top this wooded hill The place grew peaceful, calm and still,
That cups a shining pool, The oaks now were a churchg
I knelt with little reverence No longer this a wooded hill,
To drink the Waters CQOI, But the temple of Cl birch.
But then this clear Communion wine, A bluebell rang the reverent knoll-
Washed clean my hardened breast, just as I'd blundered hCl'0.
And whet the edge of thought so fine, To break the wonderous, holy spell,
And set my soul at rest. Behold! Admire! Fear!
Wfould that I worshipped in this church!
Then, on this hallowed hill
On bended knee. beside this birth.
Of Grace, I'd drink my fill.

Une hot summer day. after a hike, we stopped to rest in a small pine grove. Mr.

.about its origin and use. Then, .ill at once, we heard a peculiar bird-call. "This is
the hrst time l ever heard one of those birds in Amherst," said the poet, jumping up
to peer through the branches.
While we walked. he continued to talk. We stopped now and then to taste
dulerent mountain mints. So the day passed. When I went to bed that night my

THEODORE CARPENTER SCHOONMAKER '38
Dr. .lol1nson's Amherst Club
II? the early twilight of 3 Spfing eVeHi11g, a man of heavy proportions was seen
stumping down a dirt road. As his head rolled from side to side, he mumbled to himself
in convulsive ejaculations. His attire would have shocked a moderately dressed tramp.
With his cane, he counted the posts in a picket fence which ran parallel to the road.
MHUITY, D0Cf0r," urged a small, mousy individual, puttering along beside the
great hulk. "Hurry or we'll be late."
Keep quiet, Bozzy," rumbled the Doctor, "you've made me lose countf'
Thereupon the Doctor retreated to the beginning of the fence and again began his
tedious counting. A quarter of an hour later, this muttering mountain and his little
companion stopped before the door of The Coffee Shop. A chorus of voices welcomed
Bozzy began the introduction: "A group of congenial men, Doctor, that I thought
you would like to meet."
In the next few minutes, Bozzy introduced a man with sandy hair, addressed as
Mr. Dyer, a gentleman with snowy hair and twinkling eyes who answered to the name
of Whicherg a tall, dapper man acknowledged to be Mr. Morton, and a man, called
Francis, who seemed to be observing much through his black rimmed spectacles.
Abruptly Bozzy stopped in despair: "Mr, Morton! where is Emily!" he exclaimed.
"I had meant to take a few notes on her this evening."
Mr. Morton explained that Miss Dickinson rarely ventured from her home, and
furthermore, a Miss Jackson, a Mr. Field, and a Mr. French were all detained. During
the ensuing conversation, poetry was touched upon. Before long, the company began
talking about Mr. Frost, who was, at the time, Mr. Whicher explained, in Florida,
as was Mr. Baker QDavid Graysonj.
When the Doctor was almost at the end of a thirty minute, extemporaneous
essay on "The Peculiar Nature of Primitive Peoples as Influenced by Geographical

filled room. It was Mr. Rand, late
Hope." The Doctor tried to direct the talk to drama, but because the poets were in
the majority, the conversation soon turned back to poetry.
Mr. Rand innocently mentioned Macleish. The Doctor's face became purple: his
roars filled the room. Once the Doctor had become deflated, Mr. Rand, who had taken
no offense, observed that, for the time being, he had completely forgotten-in the
true manner of the college professor-the Doctor's prejudice against everything Scotch.
Otherwise, the evening passed pleasantly, and not until a few rays of light from
the east had filtered through the windows did the gathering adjourn. A few happy
men went home to sleep while one of the village milk-men watched a thick-set gentle-
man outside the door of The Coffee Shop. This hulk, muttering happily to himself,
was nailing up a sign which read: "Dr. Johnson's Amherst Club-

Wonder if she'll Calf her supper rightf'
Back there, she was eating in a tired way, leaning forward with her face almost
in her supper. Tears streamed down her soft cheeks. Then she suddenly coughed. Her
graceful body shook convulsively. Finally, she stopped and looked around.
1 "lt really isn't so bad," she thought. "The boys are nice and they'll be good to me.
They keep house quite well, and I can help, perhaps. The place is small, but it's neat
and real pretty. Gee, that's kind of them! A comb and brushes with cute little red
handles for me!"
She leaned out through the open window, saw a gently sloping meadow, and
smelled the sweetness in the air. She sighed again. But what attracted her attention
then was the bed. She felt it. Nice and soft.
"Just like the one I had down in Georgia." She sniffed, and suddenly sank into
it. tired and homesick.
Then the boys came back.
"Hi ya, Lil. D'ya know what? You're going to be entered in a beauty contest."
