For four years We, the members of the Class of
1941, like Chaucer's pilgrims, have been traveling
together towards a goal. 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.
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.

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.

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.
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-

MY GREATEST AMBITION
I have an ambition. It is not to make a million dollars, nor to play center Held for the
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.
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.
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.

The Pilgrimage of the Class of '41
OL11' C1258 commenced its journey through Amherst High School in the usual way. 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.

in our mr
i ghts of
of merican Education
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
larger individual farms. Those who cannot afford to prevent their own smaller farms from being

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
Most students today do not appreciate the opportunities offered them by modern education.

newspapers offer many openings to writers.

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
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

Our high school offers many more direct opportunities for developing one's .character than
did the earlier institution. 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.

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.

Amherst's 1940 football season was one
of contrasting fortunes. 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.

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.

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.

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.
