X Amherst, Ma '
HIS year's Goldbug is dedicated to a teacher Who, through her patient
kindness and real friendship has Won our respect and our esteem.
During the three years that we have known her she has continuously
gone out of her Way to help us, to advise and guide us, and most important,
to teach us. She has taught us something more important than just a
class room subject. She has taught us to think and to act independently.
For these things we thank her.
"Who is it that says most? Which can say more -
Than this rich praise - That you alone are you P"

Scene: Amherst High School
It was William Shakespeare who wrote, "All the
world's a stage." This quotation is just as true now
as it was in Shakespeare's time, and, in the opinion
of the editors of the Goldbug, it can be applied
directly to present day school life. Are these not
actors and actresses, directors and prompters, stage-
hands and angels? Is there not a setting and a back-
drop for each act? With this in mind, the editors
decided to employ Shakespearean quotations and
Shakespearean play mechanics as a framework upon
which to build the book. -
What part did you play? If you are Mr. Perry, you
directed the entire production and saw that it kept
moving. If you are a teacher, you guided the actors,
molded the finished product, determined the result
of the play. If you are a student, then you were a
starring player and everything you did or said was
unrehearsed acting. You made your own script,
and decided upon your own stage directions. But
since you were an actor you helped determine the
success or failure of the play as a whole. .As an
actor a responsibility rested on you. You made the
play a happy one and a successful one. We, the
editors, have attempted to present to you the last act
of your play. Here it is.
'Thefe's a divinity that shapes our endg

The Hurricanes emerged triumphant in the 1948 football season.
At the end of the year, Amherst was tied with Palmer for first place in the
Pioneer Valley League. A fighting ,spirit and a well executed passing
attack more than offset the fact that Amherst had an extremely light
team. Composed of Bob and Dick Stedman, "Nemo" Kinder, Jim
Tague and Joe Waskiewicz, Roger Yurkevicz, Bob Kowaleck, and
John Fellers, the Amherst line was a match for any team. In the back-
field, Ed Conklin, Don Pettijohn, Al Koblinski and Jake Matuszko gave
Amherst a fast and potent offense.
One of the highlights of the season was the Ware game, in which
Amherst came from behind to win. There was also Ludlow, which Am-
herst beat in spite of the fact that many players were injured during the
game. The big game of the year with Northampton was played at Amherst
in a driving rain. Final score-Amherst 7, Hamp O.
With a veteran infield and a power-packed outfield, the Amherst
High diamond crew opened its season April 30, hoping to repeat as a
pennant winner. The chances for doing this were favorable, and as the
season progressed the Hurricanes showed their abilities at bat and in the
field to the satisfaction of all onlookers. At this writing the Williamsmen
were close to a Hampshire League pennant, thus keeping up a yearly
tradition of Amherst High baseball squads.

Because of a rather slow start at the beginning of the season, Amherst
had to be content with capturing third place in the Hampshire League.
The Hurricane record for the 1948 season was ten victories and six defeats.
It is significant, though, that by the season's end the Amherst quintet
was considered one of the most potent in the league. , ,
The only veteran player on the team was Don Pettijohn, who was
the team's high scorer. The team had two fast forwards in Al Koblinski
and Harry Tillson, a set-shot artist in Gif Stutzman, and a strong defense
in Joe Waskiewicz. Bill Archibald and Jake Matuszko, Roger Yurkevicz,
Bob Kowaleck, Ed Conklin and Pete French gave Amherst a well-balanced

The swimming team was very fortunate in having Joe Rogers as
coach and the use of the University pool for practice. Largely due to these
factors, the team had a remarkably successful year, winning the Western
Counties meet, coming in second in the All Massachusetts Championships,
fourth in the New England, and third in the Meehan Meet. In the dual
meets the team won five and lost two. This record is all the more remarka-
' ' ' f schools
ble when one considers that the team competed with teams rom
t times the size of Amherst.
' ' ' ' ll-around skill, and the re ay-
Pat Kennedy s diving, Joe Rogers a
team's speed were especially noteworthy.

As an epilogue for All's Well that Ends Well
"Now the play is done
All is well ended if this suit be won,
That you express content."
The editors of the Goldbug have attempted to set
before you pictorially and in writing a summary of
the school year, 1948. This book is their effort, yours
"blindly to judge". They hope, as did Shakespeare,
"that you express content".
Before signing off completely, however, there is
one observation that the editors would like to make.
If school life really is a play, then the class of 1948
has acted in a singularly successful one. We came
more or less unwillingly, and strangely enough, we
leave the same way, it must be an indication of the
fun, the good times, the real accomplishments that
We found here. The last three years have been good
ones and we are sorry to go. Perhaps there is con-
solation in the fact that Amherst High will still be
here, the setting for other acts, guiding others as it
has guided us.
And these good merchants
lack no clients"
