From Proem by JOHN GREENLEAF WHITTIER. EDITORS HUTE We have endeavored to have this Gold Bug one which will reflect our awareness of the conflict which surrounds us. We feel that an understanding of the War is necessary as a basis for the promotion of a last- ing peace. Thus the themes of patriotism and school life in wartime are used to accomplish this plan.

On that first day of school, after learning the location of classes in the high school, most students were brought into their first realization of the year of their graduation-1945. There was a feeling of "newness" about the Amherst High School world. Theoretically, we were in Junior High-ninth graders-but were called "Freshmen". We were permitted to attend the evening danc- ing classes. Kathleen Canavan, Joyce Hubbard, and Charles Johnson were on the Graphic staff. The Gilbert and Sullivan operetta "Patience" was given by the Junior High School and created many stars. Cast in prin- cipal roles were Janet Vondell as Patience, Marilyn Westcott as Angela, Patricia Thomson as Saphir, Betty Parkhurst as Ella, and Lewis Pappas as Grosvenor. Marilyn Westcott was the winner of the first Annual Robert E. Quirk Memorial Speaking Contest. Sophomore year was another step nearer the top. The upper classmen took us into their clubs and activ- ities, glad to welcome our promising class into the high school. This year was our first experience with elec- tion of class officers. Teresa Hamilton was elected president, Charles Johnson vice-president, and Marilyn Jantz secretary-treasurer. Miss Duffy was chosen class adviser. Eight members of our class worked for the Graphic. Sophomores included in the cast of the musical "The Nightingalel' were Patricia Thomson, Barbara Nodine, Teresa Hamilton, Joyce Hubbard, Geneva Jenks, Betty Parkhurst, Pauline Rule, Janet Vondell, and Marilyn Westcott. Members of our class starred in football on many occasions. At the Ware game Harold Page intercepted a pass which won the game for Amherst. At the Palmer game Page again starred as did Charles Abramson and George Selanis. Stanley Cislo, Kamel Hassan, Victor Keedy, Edwin Knihnicki, and Frank Shufelt were also members of the football squad. We remember well tramping through the snow on frosty nights to see basketball games. Charles Abramson, Victor Keedy, Edwin Knihnicki, George Selanis, and Henry Wziontka were members of this almost entirely sophomore team. In the spring Charles Abramson, Victor Keedy, Rich- ard Leland, Harold Page, Carl Peterson, George Selanis, Frank Shufelt, Ralph Thornton, Stephen Thompson, and Henry Wziontka made the baseball team. Contestants in the annual Millett Cup Declamation Contest were Geneva Jenks, Miriam Kennedy, Mar- ilyn Moser, Irene Tufts, and Marilyn Westcott. Cleo Anderson and Paul Serex were prize winners in the essay contest on South America which was sponsored by the Rotary Club. In May our class was host at the Peppermint Prom. Ray Black's Orchestra furnished the music. At graduation exercises in June, Mr. Perry announced that the class of 1945 had won the coveted Stowell Cup. Honors went to Pamela Blundell in Latin. At the first class meeting in our Junior year Teresa Hamilton was elected president, Victor Keedy vice- president, and Marilyn Jantz secretary-treasurer. Literary aspirants on the "Graphic" included Elinor An- derson, Nancy Cornelius, Ellen Goding, Elizabeth Hays, Joyce Hubbard, Robert Jones, Miriam Kennedy, Betty Parkhurst, Judith Potter, Stephen Thompson, and"'M.1rilyn Westcott. Football, basketball, and baseball claimed the attention of the class athletes who played last year as Sophomores with the addition of Peter Gore, who entered this school that year. Swimming was revived as a competitive sportg and Gordon Bridges, Peter Gore, and Paul Serex made the team. For the interclass play competition in March the Juniors presented "Yes Means No" with Miss Duffy as coach. Those taking part were: Nancy Dean, Robert Jones, Richard Maxson, Marilyn Moser, and Lewis Pappas. Those participating in the Junior class play, Goldsmith's "What a Life", were Geneva Jenks, Isabel Bowen, Jean Carter, John DeNyse, Kamel Hassan, Elizabeth Hayes, Louise Hrynyshyn, Charles Johnson, aiiiliiliiiililglii 5'...5Ig5f.U.-U.-1YQSQM-fi-i-I-I-I-Iwi-I-LL s -ee Fi' 5'- .2- ,U Q? ,Lam , J, 3 e3 3 :Q 2 51,3 Q4 3 3 Ii 3 I ,Mg 3 3 Q 2 ' 3 jg s iz' 9 is 3 2 3 iq 2 Q 2 Ei sa :S 2 2,2 :qua af' QQ Qt" Robert Jones, Miriam Kennedy, Thomas Mannett, Richard Maxson, Betty Parkhurst, Pauline Rule, Shirley Wales, Clarence Warner, Marilyn Westcott, and Janet Vondell. In "Blow Your Own Horn", the musical show written and directed by Kenneth MacKillop Jr., Joyce Hubbard had the lead. Other Juniors taking part were' Jean Carter, Nancy Dean, John DeNyse, Nancy Dud- ley, Ellen Goding, Teresa Hamilton, Miriam Kennedy, Rosalind Kozikowski, Sophie Maturniak, Jesse Mary- mont, Richard Maxson, Marilyn Moser, Barbara Nodine, Sophie Pelis, Jeanette Sanctuary, Patricia Thomson, Janet Vondell, and Marilyn Westcott. ' Class members in the orchestra included Nancy Dudley, John DeNyse, Richard Haskins, Joyce Hub- bard, Marilyn Moser, Barbara Nodine, Barbara Rose, Patricia Thomson, Jeanette Sanctuary, and Marilyn West- cott. Members in the band were Nancy Dudley, Teresa Hamilton, Joyce Hubbard, William Moore, Marilyn Moser, Barbara Nodine, John DeNyse, Richard Leland, Jesse Marymont, Rosemary Brown, Jeanette Sanctuary, Patricia Thomson, and Marilyn Westcott. 1 The Juniors gave the Senior Reception, a formal party, with Ray Black's Orchestra in June. Irene Tufts won the essay contest sponsored by the Small High School Basketball Tournament, and Marilyn Westcott and Elinor Anderson won prizes in the "Know Your Money Contest." Ellen Goding won the Physics prize, Shirley Goodwin and Robert Jones won the History prizes, and Teresa Hamilton won the Home Nursing prize. At the June graduation exercises the Class of 1945 was again proclaimed the winner of the Stowell Cup. Early in the Senior year we came into possession of our class rings and pins. Plans were made for photographing class members by the Kinsman Studio. Teresa Hamilton was again chosen class president, John DeN se vice- resident, Patricia Thomson secretar , and Kamel Hassan treasurer. The Student Council elect- Y P Y ed Richard Maxson president, Teresa Hamilton vice-president, and Patricia Thomson secretary. Robert Jones and udith Potter were editors of the Gra hic, and Varnum Abbott and Mar Lou Clark became editors of P Y the Gold Bug. Serving on the gridiron in addition to those mentioned before were Linwood Trachy, Stephen Thomp- son, and Carl Peterson. Amherst High School cheerleaders chosen from our class were Barbara Shumway, cap- tain, Joyce Hubbard, Marilyn Jantz, Joan Shea, and Phyllis Ward. Those taking part in the cast of "Antic Springu, our entry in the interclass play contest, were Louise Kiely, Varnum Abbott, Patricia Thomson, John DeNyse, Robert Jones, and Geneva Jenks. It is evident from the number in our class who were elected to Pro-Merito, our honorary society, that our class could achieve excellence in the intellectual realms as well as in the extra-curricular. As our Senior year draws to a close we pause to reminisce, and what comes to our mind? The events already mentioned to be sure, but also certain persons and events which gave our class its ,particular per- sonality. We shall never forget: Kamel's booming laugh, Thompson's puns, Gore and Maxson's trip through the Hatfield fields, Smith and Kicza swooping low over Amherst in their planes, Joyce's sweet swinging voice, Trachy and his car, Nancy's ability to cower strong men in order to apply make-up for dramatics, and Keyes' ability to imitate any barnyard fowl. The present news of Allied progress in World War II is promising to us as seniors, especially regarding the future of the world and our own lives. It is promising when compared with the dark days after the Pearl Harbor attack which occurred in December of our Freshman year. Many members of the class are serving in the armed forces, they began to enlist in the Sophomore year. Nineteen hundred and forty-five has arrived-our graduation year and, we pray, peace to the world. The time will come When all wars shall cease. There'll be glories for some And for all of us peace.

The logs snapped and sputtered as the flames leaped eagerly up the chimney. A huge clog lay sleeping on the hearthstone. His paws wiggled, and short, shrill yaps escaped from his massive jaws. I wondered what he was dreaming about. Maybe it was a rabbit or a deer. But, do you know something? It's my guess that he was dreaming of a place where the wind sobs through majestic pines and streams run clear, cool, deep. Outside, the snow swirled, eddied, and finally settled down to a soft white blanket. There are not many out tonight-man or beast. Yes, it is a good night to be -inside, a good night to be where it is warmg a good night to be with someone you love. Instead of being warm, my heart is cold. Instead of being with someone I love, there is only the memory of words searing my eyes, beating against my brain, sending me into the valley of the shadows-"We regret to inform you-." -SHIRLEY HANKS. Alien and cold, the pale stars glimmer Through the purple dark, The barren trees etch their ghostlike shadows across the wan snow. What sights and sounds have these ageless spheres witnessed, Swinging in their ceaseless swirls through space- Families torn, one from. the other, and- scattered -like .grainsof chaff amidst the utter parts, where God walks rarely. Q How shall this insignificant one, Dwarfed by the immensity of all I survey, Hope for God's notice to my prayer?- "Grant that when two or three are gathered together in Thy'Name Thou wilt grant their requests .... " We are here-the trees, the stars, the snow, and I, Praying that man may have erred for once- That the fatal scrap of official yellow is a mistake. -ELIZABETH I-Ins.

Miss Chase is the class adviser. SUPHUMUHE CLHSS The Sophomore Class led by President Malcolm Modrzakowski was well represented in all of the various school activities indicating that the Class of 1947 will be a definite asset to Amherst High School. Mr. Swift is the class adviser. ' SOCIAL STUDIES CLUB Lively and interesting discussions have kept this club a favorite. Speakers have been called in by the president, John DeNyse, and its adviser, Mr. Marks, to speak on topics interesting to the members. DRAMATIC CLUB This year the club has presented a Christmas play. Led by Miriam Kennedy, the club has been under the guidance of Miss Buker and Miss Brown. The purpose of the club, which is to acquaint the members with dramatics and make-up, has started many hopeful hearts on the road to Hollywood. PROJECTIONISTS CLUB Under its adviser Mr. Swift, the Projectionists' Club has been one of the most active clubs this year. Various movie assemblies have been under the supervision of the club, whose president is Arthur Harris. Through actual experience the members are taught to operate the machines. CAMERA CLUB With Harold Reed as president and Mr. Lacroix as adviser, the Camera Club has been very active this year. Still life shots were made of Nancy Cornelius and Gloria Phelps. Through experience the technique of photography is taught. TRI-S Members of the Tri-S have been very busy this season in supplying the servicemen with Christmas boxes and trying to find escorts for the various social functions of the club. HI-Y This club has been unusually lucky in being able to have returning servicemen speak to them at their meetings. Under Kamel Hassan the club has been active, too, in vari- ous social activities. is 79 e . ef? C. H g 'O ff T' Q Q9 C Q9 15,9 11,7 Q K? e ,.? 5 W? 5 ,P c .P C .7 e ,? e: ,P C V? e ..7 e,.7 cg? emi?

OUTING CLUB The Outing Club under the leadership of Varnum Abbott president, and Miss Nagle, adviser, climbed moun- tains, skied, and roller-skated with greater enthusiasm than ever before. DEBATING CLUB A debating club was organized this year under the guidance of Miss Brown. The team was a member of the Connecticut Valley Debating League and succeeded in ty- ing for the third place. Since all of the team were Sopho- morcs we are looking forward to an even better season in 1945-46. PHU-WEHITU The scholastic honor society of the school includes those Juniors and Seniors who attain a required scholastic rating. i i .HD ein do Ja Ja Ja Ja JJ JJ 0,9 F9 JD Q3 Q3 42 fo -13 v3 gg 'Q QQ 'Q ,Q 42 17 ,Q STUDENT CUUHCIL Under the capable leadership of Richard Maxson and the guidance of Miss Duffy, the student government has been very active promoting the Sheila Adam Drive and in selling War Bonds and Stamps.

The Hurricanes lost 8 games and won a total of 14, Four of the games were lost by two points, and Hopkins won both encounters. FUUTBHLL Football ranged from the triumphant to the disastrous in 1944. Victory came against Classical 7-0, Palmer 2-0, and Deerfield J. V. 7-0. Buckley inflicted the worst defeat of 34-6, and Northampton was pressed but won 14-12. The games with Athgl 7-7 and Enfield 6-6 were among the hardest battles. Keedy, Bias, Abramson and Knihnicki were outstanding. ' . BHSEBHH Winning the Hampshire League and fighting to the Western Massachusetts finals the 1944 baseballers compiled a 14-4 won-lost record. Vic Keedy pitched 8 wins and led the hitters with a .370 average. Correale, Page and Peterson were .300 sluggers on this great ball club. Slllllllllllllli Joe Rogers' swimmers met tough opposition losing 3 of meets but were second only to Springfield Tech in the Western Counties meet. The sole victory came against Middletown. Gore, Bridges, Serex, Kennedy and Thompson were swimming bulwarks while Carter turned in a stellar diving performance. GIRLS' SPURTS Girls' sports included soccer and field hockey in the fall season, volley ball and basketball during the winter, and in the spring, softball. In :field hockey and basketball, for the first time in years, outside teams were played adding much to the en- joyment of the year's sports. CHUHUS The outstanding performance. of the chorus at the Christmas Concert, conducted by Mr. MacKillop, received the same favorable comments that all choruses have had in the past. I - BHHD The band's outstanding performance of this year was at the Northampton-Amherst football game when the band made a dazzling appearance, directed by Mr. MacKillop and led by the drum-majorette, Nancy Dudley. UHUHESTHH The orchestra's appearance and assistance at the Christmas Concert were evidence of the good work done by them and their able leader, Mr. MacKillop. f Ja ia E CJ JJ 1 -:2 -:'3 -:ha el 2 ei? 5 3 gk? 5:3 gl? c,3 C C C gl cf? gp?
