Our experiences have been many and variedg some of them, unexpected. The record of these experiences we have preserved in this edition of the GOLD BUG so that long after the trip is ended We may remember the doubts and trials, the joys and triumps that have made these four years of traveling meaningful to us. THE EDITORS. De 1 ication 9 w 2 n D The pilgrimage of the class of 1941 has been conducted by many guides, among them there is one Who has been to us always something more than a guide. In his various capac- ities, Mr. Myrick has been a friend who will be long re- membered. As a history teacher, too, he will be remembered. As track coach, swimming coach, circus boss, Woodsman- hiker, playwright and director, "Norm', has helped to make our journey both more pleasant and less difficult. In a spirit of gratitude to a good friend, we dedicate the 1941 GOLD BUG to Mr. Norman Myrick. Ai,..--.v.,. .M F M .- 1' r A W . - HC aCullItyffJ1940f4l CHESTER BERCUME - MILDRED S. BROWN - ALICE W.

A Q s ir, ' V X I , Priincipalls Letter To the Class of 1941: Two things about the situation of the Canterbury Pilgrims occur to me as apply- ing to our situation. They were a diverse lot, thrown together willy nilly, forced to manage together in the common interest. Would not the same words apply Without change to us? A forbearance, tolerance, sanity, and sense of humor are demanded of us, as perhaps never of any other people, in acting together as a unit in the common interest. Secondly, the group of pilgrims faced uncertainty ahead, uncertainty as to roads, brigands, inns. The journey would surely be arduous, probably dangerous, possibly fatal. So we too have a strong sense of unsureness of the future, of impending change. How recognizable will such stable institutions as our churches, schools, banks, government organization, factory system, agriculture, railroads, be in thirty years? We do not know, but we feel that many of them may be vastly different. In such a situation, my best advice to you is to cultivate adjustability, capacity to change, to do, act, and think differently as conditions change. Be alert. Be con- servative, but dare also to be radical. Be calm,-but not sleepy. As the years roll, look ahead eagerly, with appreciation of, but without regret for, the vanishing past. RALPH W.

DAMERST Q1941j ,, ' 3 ilsgtimaje l TWENTY-FIVE Creative riting MY GREATEST DISLIKE I have always disliked theme-writing and I think I always shall. In the first place, I haven't the "gift of gab" which is needed in writing. Without this skill, it is almost impossible to compose an interesting or humorous essay. Because of my deficiency, I sit for hours trying to figure out how to say a thing which a gifted person could say in two seconds. As for punctuation, I'm always placing commas in the wrong places or omitting them en- tirely. After all, what does punctuation mean to a theme if the idea is all there? A theme IS just as funny or just as "dry" in spite of all periods, commas, or exclamation marks. Lastly, I have the greatest difficulty in writing a conclusion to my essay. I believe that if I have said all that I want to say, I should stop! But I puzzle a long time before I finally dash down a few more meaningless words. No matter how much effort I put into my themes, I shall never be a writer. VIRGINIA JULIAN MY BIGGEST MISTAKE Everyone knows how spring affects the young man's fancy. The birds, the bees, the fresh green grass, the bright, warm sun and gentle spring breezes all make a walk with one's best girl a most delightful occasion. After I had called for my current "interest in life," we decided upon a hike through some fields and meadows which proved to be slightly damp as a result of recent spring rains. Presently, we arrived at an especially marshy spot. Here some cows had trampled the ground into a mire almost impassable for one with ordinary shoes. XVhat luck! Off came my moccasins and socks. Then, gently, I lifted "my dream" and proceeded to wade the width of that all too short patch of muddy ground. Having deposited safely my light burden, I trotted carelessly back for my socks and moccasins. Suddenly, I heard a ripping sound and felt a sharp stab of pain in the arch of my right foot. A quick look showed me blood pouring from a deep, jagged wound. I had run on a piece of broken glass! The "little lady" ran for help while I did what I could for the gash. NVhen my father and a friend finally came, they had to carry me several hundred yards to a car. It was several weeks before I could walk on my bad foot. I have learned my lesson. This gallantry "stuff" is not for me. Should I encounter like circumstances in the future, the lady will do her own walking around any obstruction encount- ered-AND MY SHOES WILL STAY GN ! ! !

It is not to make a million dollars, nor to play center Held for the Brooklyn Dodgers. It has always been my ambition to be an engineer. For years I have dreamed of standing beside my own Diesel or steam engine, of feeling the surge of power as these mighty engines swing into action, of standing by the switch-board and controlling twenty thousand horse power by the flicking of a switch or the turning of a steam valve. To be able to do these things would assure me that I was of some benefit to my com- munity and to mankind. I should be able to see in the products of industry a little bit of myself, a little bit of my labor which is essential to the welfare of mankind. I should know that I am needed and appreciated by the world. I should know that without the work I was doing, in- dustrial progress could not move forward quite so rapidly. To be an engineer does not set one up as a public figure. The engineer is never publicly acclaimed for his good work, but in the appreciation of the things he helps produce is a little praise for him. I If I could succeed in doing these things, I should consider my ambition fulfilled, and I should be content with my lot in life. ROBERT CAMBRIDGE MY GREATEST JOY I find my greatest joy in evening walks. I walk alone, usually between the hours of ten and twelve, and during all seasons of the year, whether in rain, in sleet, or in snow. In summer I like nothing better than to walk along a lonely country road listening and watching for the approaching thunderstorm. In winter, when the sky is clear, I walk because I like to feel the cold night air. I like to study the same landscape by moonlight and by sunlight. On these walks I think, usually, about intangible things. I forget my worries and disappointments from the world of reality. Many times I walk only to "let off steamf, After an especially trying day, or after an argument with some friend a walk seems to lighten things and to clear the uatmospheref, Soon I find myself laughing at my earlier misgivings. My greatest joy is to walk alone. It is a pleasure I hope never to relinquish. It is safe, sane, economical and highly profitable. JOHN FITZGERALD QHIIQYIIUZIQB TWENTY-SEVEN ' i MY FAVORITE PICTURE I enjoy sunsets more than any other beauty in nature. Some sunsets exceed others in their beauty. One I shall never forget. On an opposite hill I watched the sun sink slowly behind a snow-clad top. Clouds spurted from the peak upward and outward in the manner of a fountain. Behind and all around this mountain the sky was a clear blue. As the sun slipped lower and lower, the redder it became. Finally a red fountain spurted from an even redder ball on a snow-white peak. Clouds helped to form a kind of geyser. The clear blue of the sky in the background brought out the vividness of the white peak. This sunset was the most unusual and gorgeous one that I had ever seen. EDITH DAYTON TO "Mitch", THE GUCD NATURED MAN Un re: A Piece of Gum? Why the pail and mop, good Mitchell? Gracious, why the pail? Will, when sweeping hard won't touch it, Mopping it remove? Gracious, why the pail? Why the saw and file, staunch Mitchell? Gracious, why the tools? Will, when scraping hard can't budge it, Cutting flooring fool us? Gracious, why the tools? Quit, quit for shame! 'Tis there to stay: You cannot melt it.

After becoming adjusted to strange surroundings, we began to make ourselves known. "Dave" Mead, "Jim" Holdsworth, and "M.V." Rice were chosen to guide our class through the first year. When the "Greatest Show on Earth" came to Amherst High, one of the feature attractions was the "Human Cannon Ball,', otherwise known as the Allen twins. We were represented in the band and orchestra, and when "Pinafore', was given, members of '41 appeared in the chorus. Our social debut was made at the Freshmen Reception. "His just Desserts," a comedy, was our offer- ing in the Interclass Plays. With a feeling of satisfaction, we completed the first stage of our pilgrimage, and retired for the summer. In September we returned to familiar surroundings. This year "Dave", "Ruthie" Connor, and "M.V.', were our oilicers. Presently we found some of our class on the various varsity squads. Several positions on the "GraphicU staff were filled by our members. With Miss Churchill again as our coach, we produced "Luncheon for Sixf, In a Beauty Contest, staged by the seniors, "M.V." Rice, to the glory of ,41, carried off the cup and the title of "Miss Amherst High." In our opinion, the junior year was our most outstanding. We entered whole-heartedly into school activities, with "Dave", "Jim" Holdsworth, and "M.V." as officers. In honor of its twenty- fifth anniversary, the "Graphic,' appeared in printed form. "Jim" Holdsworth managed the "Graphic" staff until February, when he transferred to Franklin and Marshall Academy. "Phil" Thayer was elected to take "Jim's" place. Most of the roles in the school play, "Charm School", were filled by juniors. We succeeded in having more boys than girls admitted to the Junior Pro Merito Society. Honors in sports went to many junior athletes. We gave the rest of our time to: a second circus, Debating Club, and our play "The Wedding," coached by Mr. Herlihey. The Mayday setting of the Junior Prom, our first formal class dance, was a great success. With exams and the Senior Reception, we finished an eventful year. When we returned to Amherst High in September, 1940, with "Phil" Thayer, "Dave", and "M.V.,' as officers, we realized that we had begun the final lap of our journey. After the Freshman Reception, we began work on the "Gold Bug." The leads for the operetta "Forest Prince" were given to seniors. Oran Boyd was piano soloist at the Christmas concert. In March we added another accomplishment. With "Ebb Tide,', written and coached by Mr. Myrick, the seniors were victorious in the Interclass Play Contest. As the months sped by, the events of senior week became a reality, and our four years as pilgrims came to an end.

B41 ome Characteristics of merican Education AMERICAN COMFORT Economic security, the ability to earn one's way in the world, and economic freedom, the right to earn that way as one pleases, are not only important but indispensable to everyone. From its very beginning, Amherst High School has always been concerned with helping its pupils to earn a living. We find that great changes have taken place in eighty years, and with modern trends, more changes can be expected. In the early days of Amherst High, little attention was paid to preparing students for immedi- ate entrance into the world of affairs. Secondary education at that time existed first of all for college preparation. Courses were limited to classical and technical subjects, of little practical use. Since then, however, a change has occurred. The day of apprentices in trades has gone, except in a few cases, and a high school education, in many instances, has come to take its place. Today some direct practical vocational training is given in shop, commercial, and home economics courses, and a great deal of indirect training for living is given by all civics courses, and by special ori- entation courses for seniors. The value of these courses is readily recognized, even by the stu- dents themselves. The number of Amherst High boys who sign up for shop work every fall has so increased that a larger shop area now is needed. That is only one change which has taken place in our modern high school, it is very likely prophetic of changes in educational policy which will take place after the present war is over. No matter whether or not the United States actively enters the war, there will be necessary postwar adjustments to be made. What will be the responsibility of American education when our present crisis has passed? There are many economic and social problems which American education can help to solve. First, let us consider education's part in helping the farmers of America. Here in New Eng- land, most of the farms are reasonably successful, they are in good condition, and a source of income to their owners, but in parts of the South and Middle West the opposite is true. Tenant farmers, sharecroppers, and many independent farmers in the South live wretchedly, without edu- ' ' f f cation, suiiicient income, or good food. Since half as many farmers with modern methods o arm- ing could raise the same crops with real profit, should these unsuccessful farmers, and their chil- dren, particularly, not be trained in other ways of earning their living? lt has been stated with ' ' ,, ' good proof that "the cultural level of the masses is the basis of good business. lf the schools in the South supplied education for these underprivileged families, is it not reasonable to suppose that ' ' ' ld k these people, with a desire for better things stimulated by their new education, wou see some new way of life more profitable than the old? Education in the South is becoming better, but there ' t'11 reat deal to be accomplished by an extension of school privileges. As in the South, remains s 1 a g education of youth for occupations other than farming would be of inestimable value in the Mid- dle West. There mechanization, because of increased speed and ease of cultivation, has led to 3 larger individual farms. Those who cannot afford to prevent their own smaller farms from being pilgrimage THIRTY-SEVEN dd.-- Y ...+,,.L4,,,LgQ1Lgi'.':" ' 'Q k ver by richer landowners must move on to poorer regions. If their children can be better ta en o , d ated for other occupations in which there 1S greater need for workers, the poorer farmers will e uc , not need to depend for a living, on prontless farming. There are other things which schools all over the country can do to increase their students' usefulness in later life. The matter of physical fitness, which has in the l21St few months been at- tmeting national attention, is one very important factor not only in getting into the army but in getting any kind of a job and holding it. To keep students fit, schools do .their part with gym classes, free clinics and medical examinations. In many places, especially in crowded and impoverished sections, there should be more of this attention given to students. Vocational guidance, already started in many of the larger schools, ought to be extended to all high schools. The assistance given to the student through experimental tests, consultations with advisors, through pamphlets or other professional literature, is invaluable in helping him to discover for what occupations and skills he is best suited. Even in the greatest economic problem of today, that of unemployment, I believe that edu- cation can do its part to help. It is likely that when the war is over and defense production slack- cns, there will be greatly increased numbers of jobless men, unless private commercial enterprises increase to keep industry at the same level of production, a situation which does not seem very likely. Vocational guidance can do much to ease the burden of unemployment. Experts can di- rect students into those fields where there will be most need for workers or technicians. From these few examples I have mentioned, of possible postwar adjustment, it can be seen that education has obligations in teaching people new ways, better ways, and just plain ways of earning a living. We, in 1941, are aware of these obligations, and we pledge our best efforts to their fulfillment. -PHILIP THAYER. :-V-094-::::::::::::::: AMERICAN CULTURE Most students today do not appreciate the opportunities offered them by modern education.

Novi the C,-pLcSt1On IS! OHCC the Student has begun the pursuit of culture, of what value will it be t0 lm. CFC are many Ways in which this learning can affect his life. A person's life-work may be chosen from one of the many fields of culture. If one has the ability, music or the stage may become his career. Art has a place in the commercial world, as has literature. Magazines and newspapers offer many openings to writers. The person who does not choose his life-work from among the fields of culture, may develop these interests in his leisure time. Many pleasant hours may be spent by those who enjoy con- certs or reading. Numerous interesting hobbies which add t h so-called cultural background. i 0 t e enjoyment of life, grow from a Although in the troubled World of today international relations are certainly strained, we must not forget that in peaceful times culture can help to promote friendly connections. The feeling of kinship which Americans have for England today is founded upon a common culture. Englishmen and Americans share a common language, a common literature, and countless com- mon traditions. These things bind America more closely to England than to any other nation in the world. Present day statesmen realize the value of culture in establishing international friendship. Much is being said and done to create common cultural interests between the United States and Latin America. Many radio broadcasts are planned to acquaint us with the music, literature, and life of South America. The Readers' Digest now publishes a special Spanish edition so that our southern neighbors may come to know us better. Nations, like individuals, become friends when they find that they have something in common. People often travel abroad to study the customs and culture of other nations. Colleges grant exchange fellowships for the same purpose. Visitors in foreign countries learn the Ways of other people and form friendly associations which remain long after the traveler has returned home. If culture plays so important a part in the affairs of nations, it must, indeed, affect the life of the individual person. A cultural background is indispensable in the development of a well- rounded personality. Almost any successful business man admits that he devotes at least some of his leisure to cultural interests. An excellent example of this fact was Samuel Minot Jones, the donor of the Jones Library. He made his money in a very successful lumber business in Chicago. This money is now used to support a library which is outstanding in this vicinity. In addition to the usual services of a public library, the building is used to advance other phases of culture, as well. The Five o'clock Hour held during the winter gives the community an opportunity to enjoy various concerts and lectures. Frequently there are art exhibits. No one can fail to see the lasting good that came from the hobby of one very successful business man. With the numerous opportunities available today in the modern high school, every student has not only 3 Chance to know good music, real literature, great art and drama, but an opportunity to express whatever talents he may possess. It is by this training, 01106 C0n51defifl S0 fflvlal and unnecessary, that education helps Americans to live well-rounded, useful, happy IVCS. -MARJORIE FRENCH. . .

Today, not only the classical course, .but the commercial and general courses prepare young Americans to face the world with intelligence. Club officers and student council members have an especial opportunity to develop leadership. The work of the team and the cheering of the spectators at basketball and football games promote fair play and co-opera- tion. Clubs, dances, and athletics increase the social consciousness of the student body. All these character traits are very important for the preservation of democracy, the solution of economic problems, and the advancement of civilization. Winston Churchill, who is leading England in a war to save democracy, is undoubtedly a great man. The ofhces that he has held prove that he is an intelligent leader. Besides being an able states- man, Churchill is an important author. Through l1iS plain, iHfCI'6Sti11g Style, the Prime Minister tells the English people frankly and honestly what the situation of the world is. For example, very boldly he acknowledged: "We must expect that as soon as stability is reached on the Western Front, the bulk of that hideous apparatus of aggression will be turned on us.', Churchill does not deceive his people. He possesses honesty, a quality which is necessary in any leader. Furthermore, England's leader is sympathetic. He has found lodgings in store basements and theaters for persons without homes. He is responsible for two thousand, two hundred doctors and nurses lighting against epidemics. These kindnesses show that he is concerned for the common man as well as for the aristocrat. Hundreds of men with characters like that of Churchill are needed if democracy is to be preserved. Character is important also in solving economic problems. Franklin D. Roosevelt, like Winston Churchill, is an intelligent, democratic leader. As Assistant Secretary of the Navy in the First XX orld War, as Governor of New York, and as President of the United States, Roosevelt has done what he considered best for the majority of people. How well he has succeeded is at present a matter of personal opinion. Everyone, however, admits that the labor problems, the migrant situa- tion, and all the other economic difficulties, must be solved by intelligent leaders of democratic principles. if democracy is to live. A I lnhtical security and cultuie are indeed valuable to a country, but the character of the Htiqens 'themselves is still more valuable. Of what value to his country is a dishonest politician? ll sr. since he knows both music and art might be considered to possess something of a cultural background. but what about his chara't P Wh I ' 5 L Cr at meaning has culture for such a man?

I-IASKINS The Student Council with John Harrington as president, Breck Dayton as vice-president, and both Helen Beaumont and Shirley Jewett as secretaries held fifteen meetings during an ac- tive year. At one of the earlier meetings the council voted that the four class vice-presidents become members automatically each year. Since the ofhce of vice-president had not been a very active one, this was a good move. In the fall, on November 18 and 19, the council sponsored a hobby show, the first to be held in the school. Because of the success of this experiment the hobby show will probably become an annual event. The council also voted to buy some band sweaters because of the enlarged band and the need of replacing some of the old sweaters. During the winter the Student Council made plans for purchasing a new radio-victrola ma- chine. A table-sized model that could be moved easily through the building was purchased. The council also voted some money from the Student Council Fund to help finance the spring trip to Washington made by four students to attend the five-day Student's Institute of National Government. The four students were Jeanette Packard and Stephen Johnson, juniors, and Joseph Gordan and Adaline Jakimko, seniors. 15ilQ1'fIl1EIQP F ORTY-THREE 1, .. ,,, 4- V -v , , ,Cr A, ,+:4,..1,.h "A " i..'I7-Lflsli-LL...7-mlffx L ,.i , f and Dir:-etor ,..,.,., ..,..,... . ,KENNETH MacKILLOP, JR, Drum llzijorette ..,.,.....,......,,..,.....

The drum-majorette was Edie Dayton, who "led" for the American Legion send-off of the first draftee. The large size of the hand prevented its appearance at many home basketball games during the winter. It was present, however, at the Orange and South Hadley games. To conclude the basketball season, the band play- ed nn the first night of the XY'estern Massachusetts Basketball Tournament at Massachusetts State College. ln the spring the band gave a concert, and marched for the Memorial Day Parade. The sut't'cssl'ul year ended with a concert on Sweetzer Park before the Parent-Teachers' Meeting. Orche tra Dir:-etnr ,... . KENNETH Mnt'KIIiLOl', JR. l.ilvr:iri:in ..........,...

ANTHONY SZALA Faculty Advisor ,.......... ., MISS RUTH E, FEGLEY In September, 1939, ten members of our class were eligible for membership in the Pro-Merito Society. At the first meet- ing of the year, we elected Dave Mead pres- ident. The seniors chose Ruth Crosby pres- ident and Elmer Warner secretary-treasurer. In October, the Pro-Merito travelled to Easthampton where we juniors enjoyed our first Pro-Merito convention. To raise money for the spring convention, which was held in Greenfield, we sold candy at the school play and basketball games. When school opened in 1940, our class had six more Pro-Merito members. Louise McKemmie was elected president and Tony Szala was made secretary-treasurer. On October 19, 1940, the Pro-Merito went to Hopkins Academy for the fall convention. Everyone attending received a free pass to the Amherst-Rochester football game or to the Massachusetts State-Rhode Island game. Bob Allen, assisted by Adaline Jakimko and John Thomson, supervised selling candy at the home basketball games. We made fifteen dollars in this way. The four dollars obtained from selling fudge at the Interclass Plays paid for the transportation to and from Hatfield, where the spring convention was held. We are proud to have been members of the Pro-Merito Society. G llilo Editor-in-Chief ................ FAYETTE BRANCH '42 Business Manager ......

The team opened its season by meeting Bulkeley High, New London, in the night-lighted Mercer Stadium, and losing, 7-6. Henry Kolasinski, after having intercepted a Bulkeley pass and run 90 yards for Amherst's only score, sprained his ankle. With Kolasinski out of the lineup, Amherst lost its next two games, with Com- merce, 13-6, and Chicopee, 6-0. Playing once again on its home gridiron, the undulating Mass. State Soccer Field, Amherst started a win- ning streak which carried through to the end of the season. Ware, 19-6, Palmer, 33-6, Enfield, 36-0, So. Hadley, 14-6, and Northampton, 6-0, fell under Amherst's lusty cudgel. After the Northampton clash, Amherst occupied first place in the class B standings, though only for a day. West Springfield succeeded to the crown by virtue of a 7-6 victory over Classical. High scorers for Amherst's season were Doc Hobart and Bud Kneeland, each with 39 points. The varsity lineup consisted of the following men: Backs: Doc Hobart, Bud Kneeland, Henry Kolasinski, Ray Coles, Don Shampo, Red Hutchings, Nel Jenks, Alby Toczydlowski, and Wally Young. Linesmen: Oran Boyd, Herb Hutchins, Steve Doran, Willie Watts, Charlie Jacque, Ed Critchett, Chet Hobart, Ed Toole, Mel Harvey, Don Gates, Walt Aldrich, Walt Bielunis, and Frank Wojtoucs.

HENRY ZIOMEK Amherst's basketball season was one of contrasting fortunes. The team inaugurated its season ingloriously, losing its first six games, after an abrupt about-face it won ten of its remaining 14 games. In Hamp- shire League competition, Amherst lost only C r,,, -, to Hopkins Academy, ultimate League champion, and Deerfield, runnerup. I Henry Ziomek, for three years a varsity guard, was the team's high scorer. Henry lived up in North Amherst-a substantial guarantee of all-around excellence-dangerously close to the North Hadley line. Leon Gizenski, his next-door neighbor, played at guard for Hopkins AC3demY- D311 Shampo, a forward, played an indispensable part in Amherst,s ten victories. Don- ald-a consistently indispensable man, also played an important part in Amherst's other nine Samcs- DOH, 1HC1dCntally, was one of Amherst's few three-lettermen during 1940-1941. Henry Igolasinski, famed throughout Western Mass. for his diverse athletic achievements, played a con- sistently hard game at guard. d Fmnme Strange and Stan Muraszka were the other seniors on this year's team, Frannie, tall an ea5Y'm0V1Hg, Sf21HlCY, Scholar and gentleman-and basketball player. Undergraduate members were Don Cates, the team's second highest scorer, Nel Jenks, Bud Kneeland, "Toots', Matusko, and Stan Ziomek.

This year, by defeating Hopkins for the second time, the squad chalked up its seventeenth consecutive Hampshire League victory. ln 1940, the team had lost only the first league game, winning all the others, and later played in the Western Massachusetts Tournament, losing in the finals to Turners Falls. One of the three factors which influenced this successful season was Fran Strange's brilliant pitching. With the help of John Rogers, Frannie kept the scores of the opponents low. At the same time, the big bats of Bob Page, John Page, Walt Maisner, Hank Kolasinski, Nelson Jenks, and Walt Aldrich put our scores in the double figures. The third reason for Amherst's team being a winning one is the baseball knowledge of the players. The clever squeeze plays, the hit and run plays, and the sacrifices all were taught and developed by the coach. Because of this fact, a large share of the team,s success belongs to our coach, George Williams. rack Coach ...... .....,.. N ORMAN MYRICK Manager , ...................,.....,.....,...... DAVID LAUDER The 1941 track team, with Mr. Myrick back as coach after a year's "vacation" Qfrom track, at leastj, though running in few meets, made a favorable showing with the small number of veterans and larger number of new men available. Veterans from last year's squad were Ray Kucinski, Herb Hutchings, Frank Cicia, John Fitzgerald, Oran Boyd and Earl Pease. These boys played a major part in Amherst's season, assisted largely by newcomers includ- ing these probable letter men: Phil Vondell, Bob Cambridge, Steve Ryznic, Ralph White, George Phinney, Ray Coles and Fred Benoit. In the first meet, with the Williston seconds, Amherst boys won seven firsts, winning 57-49. Ralph White, as well as winning the shot put event, set a new Amherst record for the javelin throw with a distance of 148' 10", Frank Cicia, self styled "one man team," was the star of the next meet with the Deerfield Academy seconds which Amherst lost, 54-53, despite Frank's taking first in the 880 and broad jump, second in pole vault, and third in javelin throw. Amherst took six Firsts, one of them by Steve Ryznic's new Amherst High record of 9' 9" in the pole vault. 1Hi1gI'fII1EIgP FORTY-SEVEN TIPS President. .........,..... ........ T RAY MARJORIE FRENCH 'Vice-President .............., ......,....,......... B LTTY B Faculty Advisor ..,...., MISS LAURA G. COOLEY This year, as an initiation stunt, the Freshman girls came to school dressed like the original Tri-S members. With huge red bows in their hair, the girls made an im- pressive appearance in their middy blouses, dark skirts, and long black stockings. In December, Tri-S treated the boys to a Barn Dance. Although the "gym', is not actually a barn, the decorations transformed it into a very good imitation of one. The affair was far from an authentic barn dance, as the caller could probably testify, but everyone had a very enjoyable evening. The big event on the Tri-S calendar is always the annual formal dance. This year it was a "Patriotic Prom." The executive committee and their helpers certainly deserve much credit for providing unusual decorations and an excellent orchestra. With the arrival of spring, sports became the main interest. Through the kindness of Mr. Kennedy, the club enjoyed a swim in the Amherst College Pool. As they reviewed their activities, the officers and members agreed that the club had had a very successful year. President ............ .,...... R OBERT CAMBRIDGE Secretary-Treasurer ..........
