Aware of the necessity for education in a World at War, We have sought in the Gold Bug of 1944 to prove the importance of a free and liberal education. The members of our class have been formulating a just regard for the arts and technical skills which are essential to a rich development of our country. We feel that theirirecord is an indication of their desire to participate in the winning of the War and the planning of the peace. I -THE EDITORS.

We have appreciated his trenchant understanding of our problems and sympathetic interest in our future. We feel that a debt of gratitude is owed to him for his capable record-in a post rendered more complicated by the exigencies of war. 4:9 514 S1 I E? if' 63 if' QT' if W." 61" G, -o -0 q- o tif 9 sly 9 eff 9 gigs if 9 61 9 615- so cf? 9 X 15, 9 :R Q .xx sa .ia 9 zu. 9 is Q ev 9 9 fi- Q 34. o Q -4,4 Q. 4 -Q -0 ik K v P. 1 f, 'Ax M MR.

QA, ,as 49 History of the Class of 1944 Early in the fall of 1940, we made a gleeful entrance into the senior high. There were many surprises in store for us, but the election of Lucille Hamilton as president did not prove to be one. Our other guid-- ing hands 'were Bill Harrington as vice-president, and Mary Madigan as secretary. Under the skillful direc- tion of Miss Churchill, we took our first steps along dramatic lines in "Jeanne D'Arc", our inter-class play. This production featured Lucille Hamilton, Peter Thomson, Bill Harrington, and Harold Boyd. Our speaking prowess was shown when Elizabeth Sanderson's name was engraved on the Millet cup. In June we left the class to the incoming freshmen. After a much too brief summer vacation, we "buffeted,'. the trials of high school life. At the class elections, Angelo Correale was chosen president, Bill Harrington, vice-president, and Lucille Hamilton, sec- retary. Angelo was not only successful in school politics, but also obtained positions on both the varsity basketball and baseball squads. We entered the inter-class play contest with Miss Preble's production of Betfs Best Bet with Lucille Hamilton, Joyce Turner, Bill Harrington and Dick Thacher in the leading roles. Although dramatic awards were not for us, we proved our competence in other phases of academic endeavor. John Markuson's ability as a Latin student was acknowledged when he won a prize in this department. So- cially we became enterprising and successful when with Mr. Herlihy as our adviser, we "put over".our first formal dance, "The May Prom". But the end of the year was not all merriment, for we still had finals to hurdle. This obstacle we overcame with varying degrees of success to finish our Sophomore year. We were rapidly advancing toward our goal, for we were now upper classmen. This was a difficult year, for most of us were carrying very heavy schedules. Again election time "rolled aroundi' and chosen to lead the class were Robert Wood, president, Lucille Hamilton, vice-president, and Robert Eisenmenger, sec- retary-treasurer. Two of our' class officers, Lucille Hamilton and Robert Wood were cast in the leading role in a movie directed by Miss Burditt and dealing with the adventures of a refugee boy in the Amherst High School. Angelo was now decidedly absorbed in the more strenuous life of varsity football. Our squad of cheer leaders was comprised of Junior girls. Maureen Mahar took the highest honors ina letter writing con- test sponsored by the Western Massachusetts League of High School Basketball. This contest took the place of the conventional tournament which was cancelled because of lack of transportation facilities. At gradua- tion the Junior Class was honored by,the awarding of the physics prize to Peter Thomson, the history prize to Marilyn Blair and Robert Eisenmenger, and the Graphic prize to Kenneth Parkhurst. We tri- umphantly ended our Junior Year with the completion of the Senior Reception. Fall again raced ,upon us. This year we had been waiting for had at last come. The varsity football squad was studded with men like Correale, "Bud" Aldrich, Bill Harrington, "Dick" White, and Hugh Clark. To lead us through this all-important year, we reelected Robert Wood, president, Lucille Hamilton, sec- retary, and Robert Eisenmenger, treasurer. Norman Ladd, the new vice-president, joined this group- of vet- eran oflicers. We lost our president, vice-president and treasurer. Robert Wood and Robert Eisenmenger left in February for Amherst College. Norman Ladd, who was also president of the student council and president of Hi-Y, followed a family tradition and joined the Navy. Lucille Hamilton was chosen as a delegate to the D.A.R. Convention. Seven more members of our class were elected to Pro Merito. The successful participation in the interclass play contest in March, followed by graduation and the Senior Reception, ended our high school careers. Now we were on the threshold of a "none too easy" world, and we left regretfully to make the best of our opportunities. HISTORIANS1 Robert Wood, Anne Grigonis, Robert Eisenmenger.

This group now rates even Press Agents, who, by the way, are none other than your three respective authors. Contact!! We must hurry now and find our positions in our Special "Liberator". But what has hap- pened? Oh--nothing too unusual-Marge Swift has just forgotten her sax, a this great jam- boree of jive. After a farewell number the Swingsters scramble onto the plane, and are off to destinies unknown! When a patched member of the company goes in search of a water fountain, no one pays much atten- tion, until joyous cries from the front of the plane rouse the excitement in our blood. We find that our wandering agent has come face to face with Lt. Wallace Fulton, of the U. S. Army Air Corps, our pilot. After greetings are exchanged, Wally informs us that more of our former classmates are aboard. Through a mike, we say hello to Bill Whittemore, the tail gunner, commonly known as "Hawkeye", and the other gunner, Gordon "Flash" Williams. Hearing our voices, John Markuson, navigator of our plane, joins us for a few minutes. When it becomes necessary for him to get back to his work, our attention is then attracted by static and code messages from the ship's radio. Turning toward this apparatus, we find under all the radio paraphernalia, our old friend Paul Rice. Wally tells us that Paul's ears helped him in landing this radio job. I wonder .. .. .,?!!? Now that we have learned who is manning our plane, we return to our seats with all thoughts of fear and uneasiness vanished. According to our itinerary, our first stop will be England. It is early morning when our ship lands in the midst of a bleak gray fog at the Fifth Army Air Base outside of London. As we all troop out into the open air, to our astonishment, we are met by the U. S. Am- bassador to Great Britain, Peter Thomson, now one of our most distinguished diplomats. Accompanying him are Robert Eisenmenger and Marcia Van Meter who are discussing German post war re-education with An- thony Eden. For the remainder of the afternoon we are made comfortable at the American Embassy, until it is time for our appearance at the U.S.O. ' At 7:30 P.M. the Swingsters strike up their band with a snappy number and as a special feature Bang-up Britt does a "Can-Can". Also on the entertainment. program are Roger Bacon's combination chorus-dance girls for some first class amusement. The girls included are Virginia Howard, Thelma Eddy, Connie Dudley and Louise Boyden. Shortly after this performance, Donald Jones, now a 'sergeant struggles onto the stage and begins selling gallon jugs of Pelham water mixed with Jones' power pills, as a substi- tute for petrol. Among the foremost customers are Ann Guyott and Janice Hawley, of the W.A.F.'s, buy- ing 50 gallons apiece for their next ferrying jobs. Ann always had her mind on planes, and of course, it is easy too, to see how Janice chose this vocation. She was constantly up in the air. During the next performance Joyce Turner, assisted by Bill Harrington, Dick Thaclier, and Hugh Clark, known to their public as the "Bold, Bewildered, Balmy Boys", sing a smash vocal hit. After the number, our' attention is attracted to two American girls among the English hostesses: Sally Hawkins, now a Max Factor agent in England, and a gloomy faced Martha Fellers, still searching for paratrooper Robert Wood. The fun over at last, we retire to our rooms and await the following clay with great expectations. i c L A s s 1 9 4 4 T1,i,.y.Ni,,e True to form, the first unexpected event is our meeting with Lt. Leslie Cramer, now a prominent fig- ure in London, having devised a method of protecting London against the Nazi radio-controlled bombing technique. Les is also making pin money with his famous teaching, "How To Avoid Unwanted Subjects in Crucial Moments", with which he supplies the schools of London. While chatting with Les, W.A.C. Lts. Marilyn Blair and Phyllis Ashley go zooming by in Red Cross mobile canteen. Our limited time is up and we must dash to the airport and proceed to Italy. Our party is met by Gen- eral Mort Clark and his staff assistant Forrest Clark. Although no kin, Forrest is right in there plugging, even though he hasn't yet learned how to do calisthenics. Ken Billings, who is a dispatcher for the general, bounces by on his motorcycle. We move nearer to the front in our special jeep driven by Andrew Kuczma who constantly sings "Take Me Back To Leverett". A figure in white scurrying about among the wound- ed men is Florence "Nightingale" Mallary. Not only is Flossy doing her bit, but Doctor Taggart, the emi- nent New York physician and ,surgeon is handling the scalpel like a true "Saw-bones". Our group passes on to the artillery firing line where the old A.H.S. basketball team, Dick White, Bud Mahar, Walt Mogelinski, Bob Baj and Cashy Ziomek, is dropping its greetings on Der Fuhrer's Supermen. An interesting spectacle is the sight of Robert Glazier traipsing along, erecting Burma Shave Signs on the road to Berlin. Because of the tenseness of the atmosphere in this location, we decide to leave Italy and move on to Moscow. Arriving here, we are highly honored to have the only woman of diplomatic fame, the very prom- inent Miss Alice Wysocki, who is here in Moscow negotiating the Polish-Russian border dispute. Her assistants are Stanley Wosilauski, Juliette Hrynyshyn, Mildred Rehn, Lucille Penza, and Alice Lashway. Not to be out- done here the Swingsters find a crowd of Russian Balalaikas and give their interpretation of American jazz. Our ship is in, and we are finally under way to Burma, where we wind up at the Flying Tigers head- quarters. Here we find Angelo Correale organizing a competitive squadron, "The Flying Wolves". Some of the newly recruited members are Stanley Hobart, Clarence Wood, Harold Boyd, and Harry Watts. We are met at the door of the field hospital by Anne Grigonis, head of the medical staff, and her personal secretaries, Rosemary Gustin, and Elizabeth Wileikis. In our tour we watch Betsy MacLeod demon- strating her knowledge of Occupational Therapy. In' another corner surrounded by drawing boards, pencils, crayons, and paints, is Alice French, entertaining the boys with character sketches. Passing on to the differ- ent Wards, we see Charlie Jourdian looking more dazed than ever, and asking the U.S.O. librarian, Lucille Hamilton, for a "Who's Who". Later we learn that during the day two Alice Wards had visited him and he couldn't comprehend who was who. Eileen Flebut, Florence Janse, and Joan Worthly are met scurrying down the corridor laden with bundles and boxes of candy. They are now roving agents for McLellan's Com- pany candy and are dishing it out to the hospitalized service men. From Burma we leave for Australia, the country so much like our own United States. At the airport to meet us are Admiral Kenneth Parkhurst and Ambassador Bill Tague, now discussing the problem of the Hidden Jap Navy. Their respective secretaries, Ruth McKemmie, and Sylvia Tenney are burdened with Walkie-talkie phones, stacks of pads, pencils, maps, and other equipment. Unfortunately, our plane is sched- uled to leave for Honolulu via the Solomon Islands in the morning. We do manage to catch a hasty glimpse, however, of sailors Norman Ladd, and Frank Jenks in the Klassy Kangeroo Klub. -In Honolulu the Swingsters are introduced to the U.S.O. by the "Grassy Lassies", Mary Madigan, Eleanor Doherty, and Lucy Yakubaitis.

In answer to our inquiries, we are informed that Ann Stanitis, and Barbara Sutton, now shipyard Welders, are having an argument at the door-about the question of civilian entrance. After we decide that they should be considered in the service of our country and invite them in, they dash out only to return with riveters, Barbara Alger, and Kathleen Johnson. As a feature number with the floor show, Katherine Kokowski and Statia Kroll sing a duet "Lei Lies". Another evening of fun is enjoyed and the six hours that remain are necessary for sleep for our homeward journey. Our trip home is one to remember. Not only do we chat with a fellow passenger, Claire Lambert, who is the new director of the Division of Nurse Education in the United States Cadet Nurse Corps, but also learn the whereabouts of Dorothy Coombs, also in the Cadet Nurse Corps. Dotty is in Newfoundland, and is mixing business with pleasure with a hastily erected beauty salon set up at the Army Post infirmary. Claire goes on to cell us that Amelia Szala and Joan Newkirk, employed at a California training camp, are widely known as the only two women Jujitsu instructors in the country! A mention of her destination brings forth another piece of startling news. Claire is planning to witness the great Naval Celebration in honor of, none other than, Ray Aldrich, who has offered himself to his country as a human substitute for aflife-raft for all the Maritime Services. Our trip is so interesting and enlightening that before we know it, the Golden Gates of San Francisco are just below us, and in another moment we step once again on good old American soil. As we pass a large flock of soldiers, sailors, and marines gathered around a colorful booth, we catch a glimpse of Betty Warner doing her patriotic duty by running a Date Bureau for "lonely" Servicemen. Such a thriving enterprise is the bureau, that its clerical work must be capably managed by Connie Mercier, Marjorie Sullivan and Edna Savisky. We cannot linger a moment longer, for the Swingsters must catch the last train to Hollywood. Ah yes-they have at last won that long-waited-for fame and will invade that big little town of the bright lights. PRESS AGENTS? Virginia Baker, Robert Gardner, Alan Wilson.

I try to pierce the dark and touch the world so close at handy Vision is so near-but no--I can not see. "Lucky not to lose a hand or arm", the distant voices say. At this I cry, "What use sensation without sight? Can fingers feel a dawn, a sunset, swaying fields of grain? Are hands enough to radiate eternal night? No, my eyes must seek another path toward day, Something within, yet strong enough to push im- pression through, And great enough to hold a view 'of earth and sky. Where? Where? This place from which I'1l see anew? There is a chance, one answer to my call, Perhaps there is an end to everlasting night- The soul. Is it so vast, so limitless in space - That it has room for all-if need be, even sight? If I make a ,place for something great, XVill I ever really catch a glimpse of I-Ieaven's blue? It's there! I see, and darkness lifts at last! There must be room! The only answer must be true! Yesterday I lived in depths of blackness and despair, I was alive, yet dead, my one companion, night. Today I found a path which seems to lead toward ioyi I Today the world is mine, for I can see eternal light. fSee Milton's Sonnet On His Blindnessj MARCIA VAN METER. REWARD What does the unknown soldier desire, As thanks for his share in the war today? V He has struggled and fought through hell and fire. What can be his reward and pay? He's just one care worn face among the others Fighting and striving to do his best, Side by side his countless brothers Proving worthy in the greatest tests. No one ever speaks of his fame: No placque for him stands in a public square. I-Ie'doesn't even have a name, Why, he just comes from anywhere. But fame consists in the approval of God, The unknown soldier's just reward, Every heroic act passed by Came under the great "Task-Master's"eye. fSee Milton's Sonnet VII and Lycidas.j V CLAIRE LAMBERT. CLASS 1944 Forty-Three Escape THE RAID It was dark . . . Deadly Still. The waning moon threw a stream of light Into the night. Zephyr, with fragrant breath, cut a path with ease Among the trees. A body moved . . . Slowly, Silently. The monstrous barricade of a munition's house was seen In the gleam Of a hand-thrown grenade, The flames licked the roof of heaven, This, was the raid. ALICE WYSOCKI. RETREAT When the burdens of life seem unbearable, I seek to ease my mind By a stroll in the fields and the lonely wood, For there 'tis peace I find. And 'tis there that I see that the Lord is good. I see that He loves us still, For He sends us a message to guide us on, If heed it now we will. For ,tis there that He shows us a life serene, A life where all is bliss, In the harmonious realm of the plants and beasts, A peace which we so do miss. As I stroll in the quiet there I behold His wondrous works of art, And the blending and harmony there Of love in nature's heart. MARILYN BLAIR. Forty-Four CLAN DESTINE LOVE I left quietly Unseen. I chose a path In the woods Along a stream To my rendezvous with the Gods. Make way--make way To forget mortals. Bah-such things they. ALICE WYSOCKI. TO L. L. W. When my spirit talks to my heart, Away from this world, my thoughts depart. I hear an angel playing on a lyre And soft, sweet music from heaven's choir. Your are in my heart, though you're in the blue: Your memory is wine, you are wine too. When the lights are dim, when the shadows fall, My soul goes to heaven to pay you a call. Together we soar again across the broad blue sky, Together we speak again, just you and I. But when the sun is seen, I say my goodbyes Say farewell to you with tears in my eyes. And when the sun's rays alight on my sill, I have come back from you, but you are with me still. You left me forever to make life safe for me: You are in my spirit, you speak to my heart set free.

To the surprise of everyone, the "Hurricanes" easily topped them with a 14 to O victory. At the beginning of the Hampshire: League games, Amht-rst's chances of taking the circuit looked very bright, but two close games were dropped at the outset. This was followed by a string of victories topped by a decisive win over Hopkins. ln the second round Amherst was defeated by llopltins and Smith Academy in two very close games, and therefore wound up third tn the league.
