The freshman class entered the high school full of en-
thusiasm and spirit carried over from their days in the
junior high. They entered wholeheartedly into the school
activities, especially the "Graphic" and the Dramatic Club.
The freshman class has some very promising athletic mem-
bers evidenced by the fact that the second team made up
largely of freshmen had a very successful season. With their
participation in the Interclass play contest they made a name
for themselves in formal school activities.

Amherst High has a much
improved band this year. In
the fall they helped enliven
and color home football games
with music and drum major-
ettes. The majorettes, a new
attraction this year, learned
quickiyt and, since most of
them are freshmen, will con- D-
tinue to improve.
The band has participated
SENIORS IN BAND
W. Kennedy, S. Montgomery, Mr. Schuler, W. Cole,
in most of our pep rallies and T, Cornish
contributed that extra punch to keep things lively.
In February the band sent five members to the All State
Concert in Worcester. In March it played at the Small
School Basketball Tournament at the University of Massa-
An orchestra, a string quartet, and a dance band were
all organized this year, but their recent birth prevented
any immediate appearances, more may be expected in
years to come. The string quartet, however, performed at
the Christmas Concert and on other occasions to the credit
of its members, Diana Brown, Lynn Hare, Ann Wardwell,
and Martha Whitney.
Thanks to "Pop" Schuler's patience and to Mr. Young's
valuable assistance, Amherst has several growing organiza-

This year the Hurricanes were a spirited
team under the direction of Coach McDon-
ough, but due to the inexperience and light-
ness of the players, their record was not im-
pressive. Amherst showed their best form
in the Booster Day game with the highly
rated Ludlow, when they kept the ball the
entire first half and scored to lead, six to
nothing. They lost by a very close margin
after giving the champion Ludlow team the
scare of their lives.
Our lettermen were as follows: Seniors:
Ernie Boynton at center, Captain Jim Coyne
at tackle and right halfback, Manager Dave
Damon, Wayne Dow at left halfback, Dick
Perchak at end, and Ray Spillane at end,
Juniors: Bill Doherty at quarterback, Bill
Dzuiba at fullback and left halfback, Tom
Knightly at tackle, Don Maia at end, guard,
and left halfback, Wally Bartos at guard,
Charlie Mannheim at end, and Art Warren
at tackle, Freshmen: Fred Allen at guard
and Gary Conklin at end and fullback.
We are anticipating a good season next
fall as nine lettermen are returning.

Pro Merito members attending the January
This year the Pro Merito Society continued its
practice of sponsoring four bi-monthly meetings to
which honor roll members are invited. Usually a
guest speaker, often from one of the colleges, is present
and refreshments are served.
Since Bill Cole was elected a Vice-President of the
Massachusetts Society, the fall regional meeting was
heldhere in Amherst. Many schools from Hampshire
county and other nearby towns were represented, and
were entertained by Professor Whicher and Dean
Wilson, both of Amherst College.
In order to become a member of the society, one
must have compiled during his four years in high
school a total of twenty points. Under this system an
"A" equals five points, a "B" zero points, a "C"
minus five, etc.
Several privileges have been awarded to Pro Merito
members this year because of the need for a real incen-
tive to work toward becoming a member. These
privileges include a special pass and a duplicate set

The juniors, already acquainted with the
routine of high school life, lost no time in
picking up where they had left off last year.
They began by vigorously supporting sports,
both the boys' and the girls' teams. Next
was presented their class play, an excellent
production of "Our Hearts Were Young and
Gay." Following mid-years the juniors
sponsored a dance. Then they again dis-
played their fine acting ability in the inter-
class contest with the entire class supporting

After getting off to a good start, and an early one, the de-
baters kept up the pace all year, continuing into late spring.
In addition to their regular debates, they played host to the
Connecticut Valley Debating League in a pre-season de-
bating practice and attended tournaments in Shrewsbury,
Massachusetts, Concord, New Hampshireg and Worcester,
Massachusetts. The debaters also attended model con-
gresses in Westfield and at A. I. C. in Springfield. The club
put on a regular-if highly unorthodox-debate in assembly
which was extremely informative.

The newest club at Amherst High is certainly one of the most active.
Pep Club was formed near the beginning of the basketball season, and,
led by Joan Whittemore and our versatile cheerleaders, .it cheered our
hard-fighting team on to the season's end. One of its chief functions was
to arrange bus transportation for the away games and to furnish backing
at all games.
The club has drawn up a set of by-laws as follows:
1. Before all games away, a list of cheerleaders' and officers' names
shall be posted, each name thereon to be held for thirty-five cents
2. Each additional signer, up to bus capacity, shall be held for thirty-
five cents, unless a substitute is found.
3. All money for bus and admission shall be paid either to the presi-
dent or the secretary the day of the game.

French Club had many in-

The members enjoyed several
French movies and speakers.
who gave them an excellent
picture of life in France.
At Christmas-time, the club
presented an excellent assem-
bly in which all the members
participated. While a group
sang French Christmas carols
in the background, on stage
were a series of tableaux de-
picting the theme of each
group of songs.

The Hi-Y has not had very many meetings due to the fact that other
activities, including basketball, took the evenings they chose for meetings.
The Hi-Y played an unsuccessful volleyball game with Tri-S. Their alibi
for this was that they didn't wish to discourage the girls from playing
again. In the return game, however, the Hi-Y defeated the Tri-S by a

Under Joe Rogers, the Amherst High School swimming team had
another good year. In their first meet with the University of Massachu-
setts freshmen, they were shaded in the final relay. After losing to Classi-
cal, Amherst took two thrilling meets from Holyoke, both in the final
event. They were then defeated by a fine Williston team.
The team took second place in the Western Counties Tournament
and third place in the Championship meet. The swimming team's record
is really fine, and they deserve a lot of praise for the excellent spirit and
teamwork they showed this year.
Amherst's best production this year was our fine Medley Relay team
comprised of Potter, Staab, and Kennedy. Free-style swimmers were
Potter, Cole, Howard, Montague, Fessenden, Burke, and Pearson. Back-
stroke members were Kennedy, Wheeler, and Avery. Breaststrokers were
Staab, Wicksall, and Fitzgerald. Diving was performed by Ames.

This year's basketball team
supplied plenty of good bas-
ketball for the fans. The
Hurricanes' beginning was
poor because all of the players
were new, but Coach Wil-
liams really had his boys
clicking at the end of the
season. Our boys played good
basketball at all times, and
even showed brilliance in cer-
tain games. They beat Deer-
fleld and Orange High Schools
by playing in stellar fashion.
This team was shaded by
Easthampton in the tourna-
ment, but the team deserves
a great deal of credit for doing
so well against many more
highly-seasoned teams in the
At center we had an All-
Hampshire League performer,
Charlie Mannheim. At for-
wards we had two good scor-
ers in Ray Szala and Don
Maia. Then, in the back-court,
we had two ever-vigilant
guards, Jim Coyne and Cap-
tain Dave Damon.
Next year ought to be a
great year for Amherst High
School because Mannheim,
Maia, and Westcott will be
returning. Also, we have some
excellent talent coming up
from this year's seconds who

The Graphic staff has spent
many a hectic moment in
getting its various assignments
in under the deadline and pub-
lishing the paper. They have
concentrated on news of the
present and future instead of
printing "news" of the past as
in former years.
Features introduced this
year include a column ex-
pressing the frank views of our
Raving Reporter on the high
school's life, and articles about
the veteran members of the
The business staff has suc-
ceeded in setting the paper on
solid ground financially after
starting the year with 3.97.
Members o.f the staff have
attended WMLSP QWestern
Massachusetts League of
School Publicationsj confer-
ences at the University of
Massachusetts in October and
in Springfield in February,
where interesting and educa-
tional programs have been
presented. This year's presi-
dent of WMLSP was Joan
Whittemore, a Graphic Stafferg
her election was not only a
personal honor, but one to the

Music at Amherst High has come a long way this year. The Chorus
is now the largest mixed club in the school. In November, most of the
members journeyed to Springfield to view a professional performance of
"The Mikado" given by the D'Oyly Carte Company of London. The
Chorus gave their annual Christmas concert at the Jones Library. A
group of eight was chosen to represent Amherst High at the All-State
Concert held in Worcester in February. This year's production was
Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado", the second in a series begun last
year with "Iolanthe".
The Double Quartet is a newly born member of the music organiza-
tion. It made some appearances during the year.

Under Coach Williams last year's team went undefeated, totaling 139
points to their adversaries, 30. Because of the brilliant pitching of Bill Joy
and the phenomenal batting ability of the team, it won thirteen games in
a row. Although only two men of the last year's first nine returned, the
Q 1951 team had excellent replacements in every position. Fans look forward
ss 1 to a good season as this book goes to press.

The Greenroom Players, the dramatic club which
was started last year, now shows promise of becoming
one of our more active clubs. The Christmas assembly,
"The Knight Before Christmas", was a one-act play
in which many of the members took part. For its big
production this year, the Greenroomers chose a melo-
dramatic three-act play, "Night Must Fall", which
was a great success.
Besides performing themselves, the dramatic club
members took two trips to Springfield to see excellent
performances of "Mr, Robertsu and "Death of a

Although the class of '51 is the smallest class to have
graduated for nineteen years, its energetic members have
more than made up for its size. Of its seventy-two members
only thirty have gone to school here since first grade. Cur
present number is quite a bit smaller than it was in ninth
grade when there were ninety-six of us.
The class has displayed both intelligence and leadership,
as seen by the fact that about one third of the total enroll-
ment belongs to Pro-Merito, and many of its members have
held offices in various clubs and activities. The fact that our
interests are varied is shown in the number of class mem-
bers who have participated in clubs, teams, dramatics,
assembly programs, and school publications.
First comes efficient, conscientious "Jan" who has
been a member of Tri-S for three years. In her senior
year she contributed to the Graphic and the Goldbug
and belonged to the Pep Club. Interested in dramatics
she took part in our Junior Class play. We'll be willing
to wager she'll do a bang-up job at Worcester City
Hospital next year where she plans to take nurses
S. Montgomerypvic'e-presirlcflizk Kolasinski, secretary-treasurer,
D. Damon, p1'eszdenlg Mr. Lacroix, adviser.
,IO-ANN HALEY BAIRD
This is "Jo", a member of the Tri-S organization
for two years and on the Graphic staff as a typist in her
senior year. She considers roller skating her main
hobby. By the way, before entering her final year of
high school she changed her name from "Jon Haley
to "Jo" Haley Baird so she quite naturally lists her
occupation as a housewife.
LEONARD MICHAEL BAJ
Interested in sports of all kinds, "Bajou" is an avid
hunter and trapper outside of school while partici-
pating in basketball for three years and football as a
junior and senior in high school. He has also been a
member of Hi-Y, Chorus, and the Goldbug staff, and
we can't forget his romantic role in "Anne of Green
Gables". Next fall he intends to remain in Amherst
at Stockbridge School of Agriculture.
ANN ROSE BAZARA
"Wait a minute!" yells "Cookie" as she dashes out
to meet her sports-loving friends in a game of softball
or basketball. Anna participated in after-school sports
during each of her three years in high school. She
was also a member of Chorus and Tri-S for three years.
An enthusiastic artist, she spends her spare time draw-
ing and taking pictures.

GERTRUDE ELAINE BEVILLE
Meet "Gertie" who also has decided to devote her
future to nursing. At Amherst High she was a mem-
ber of the Chorus for three years. Since her major
hobbies are sewing and cooking, you have probably
seen her at one time or another in the home economics
ERNEST BOYNTON, JR.
During his high school career "Junie" has worn a
path between the locations of his main interests, the
art building and the gym. As for extra-curricular
activities, "Ernie" has devoted his time to sports,
football as a junior and senior and basketball during
all three years.
GEORGE ALBERT BRATIANU
"Who's Who" calls him George but we call him
"Smoky," Whichever you choose you can recognize
him by his hat. Interested in outdoor sports, "Smoky"
can be found skiing or skating in winter or summering
with a fish pole.
RAYMOND L. BLACKMER, JR.
"Jupiter, another spare!" cries Ray, talking, of
course, about his favorite sport, bowling. In school he
has been interested in dramatics and in our Junior
Class play played the part of a country hayseed. He
also appeared in the Interclass plays as a freshman and
a junior and joined the Dramatic Club where he was
treasurer in his senior year. Ray also made the football
team as a junior.

KATHLEEN THERESA ANN CLIFFORD
Energetic "Kitty" has been a member of Tri-S and
Chorus since her freshman year and as a senior joined
Pep Club. She has no plans for the immediate future
but is interested in becoming a nurse. Outside of
school she devotes much of her time to several hobbies,
knitting and embroidering, and, more actively, dancing
and roller skating.
EMILY ELIZABETH BRITT
"Emmie", who has gained recognition by having
several of her literary works published, has continued
her efforts as a Graphic- reporter when a senior, and as
a club editor of the Golrlhzzg. She displayed a flair for
acting by joining the Dramatic Club and appearing
in the Interclass plays and in our Junior play. She
also maintianed a high enough average to ,become a
member of Pro-Merito, and was in French Club, Pep
Club, and Tri-S. Next year she plans to attend William
Smith College in Geneva. New York.
"What a panic!" refers not to "Judy" but to her
favorite expression. As a cheerleader she helped to
form the much-needed Pep Club in her Senior year.
She was a most successful co-business manager of the
Goldbzzg, a Graphic reporter, a member of Chorus,
Tri-S, and French Club. Next fall she's looking for-
ward to Colby College in frozen Waterville, Maine, as
a prelude to becoming an airline hostess. for which she
has everything it takes.
NORMAN SPAULDINC- COLE
"Norm" has been active on the swimming team, in
Hi-Y, and Chorus during his three years at Amherst
High. As a member of the Graphic staff he was a fresh-
man reporter and sports editor in his junior year. In
the sports field he also went out for basketball in his
first year, and as a junior and senior was on the foot-
ball team. Next year he hopes to go on with his studies
at prep school.
WILLIAM R. COLE, III
Here's "Bill", co-editor-in-chief of our Goldbug, a
regional vice-president of Pro Merito, and secretary
of Hi-Y in his senior year. Also in his senior year "Bill"
was a member of Pep Club and Science Club, and was
the "Raving Reporter" for the Graphic. This same
year, he was a Student Council representative and
was elected president of that organization. "Bill's"
interest in sports is shown by the fact that he took part
in basketball two years and in baseball three years.
Also being musically minded, he has been a Band and
Chorus member three years and has been student
director of these groups one and two years respec-
LOUISE MAE COOLEY
Quiet, capable, and willing is Louise. She was elected
treasurer of both Pro-Merito and Tri-S in her senior
year, as well as serving our publications that year as a
senior editor of the Goldbug and a Graphic reporter.
"Lou" worked three years in the Chorus, and, dramati-
cally, performed well in our Junior Class play and in
our Interclass plays of 1950 and 1951. Science Club
as a junior and senior, Pep Club, and French Club as a
junior round out the list of activities she has faithfully
supported. The U. of M. will give her preliminary
training as a physical therapist.
HARRY THOMAS CORNELIUS
"Tom" was elected to the Student Council each year
in high school and served as the Council's vice presi-
dent his senior year. As a freshman and junior he was
our class vice president and a member of the basket-
ball squad and of Science Club. His last two years
"Tom" was also in the chorus and Hi-Y. Knowing
that he has played baseball and belonged to French
Club three years and was the Goldbug sports co-editor,
one- would expect him to be tired of it all. But, in his
own words, "Does it matter?" "Tom" will shake him-
self out of this mood to enter the U. of M.
MARLENE MONICA COTE
"Mar" was a Graphic typist and a girls' basketball
player during her senior year. Like many others, she
enjoys roller-skating as a hobby, and as for her future
vocation she would like to become a secretary.
JAMES FRANCIS COYNE
"jim", or "Captain Coyne", whichever you call him,
has devoted his time to athletics. As a matter of fact,
he has participated in the three major sports in each
year of school and was captain of 1950's football team.
Sometime in the future he plans to become a member
of the armed forces.

THOMAS M. CORNISH
Introducing "Tom" who is another sports enthusiast.
He has "gone out" for baseball one year and for basket-
ball three years, and joined Pep Club when it was
formed. An interest in the finer arts is shown by his
three years' participation in band and chorus, and his
support of the Dramatic Club and our junior Interclass
play. Tom was also active in Hi-Y and was on the
Goldbug staff. As a future vocation he would like to
take up architectural drawing.
'ADave" is the class politician. No one resented his
three ear "Tamman " re ime as our efficient and
popular class president, nor his election as president-
of both Hi-Y and Science Club and as captain of the
basketball team to climax his three year support of
these activities. He also served as football manager
during the '50 season, as well as representing Amherst
High at Boys' State and at the 1951 Good Government
convocation. To top all this he earned Pro-Merito
membership. The U. of M. will be the scene of his

secretarial work after graduating from high school.
RICHARD ALFRED DAVIS
The quiet guy with the grin and the ready wisecrack
is "Doc", the Pelham storekeeper. Three years of base-
ball and his last two of basketball have satisfied "Dick"
athletically. He was elected to the Student Council
in both his junior and senior years. Photography, his
hobby, led him to work as photographer for the Graphic
a year and for the Goldbug.
WAYNE ALTON DOW
Wayne, the Harry James of our class, has played
trumpet in the band all during high school. His senior
year was spent on the football field. He expects Uncle

a member of Science and Pep Clubs, a performer in
Interclass and Junior plays, co-manager of publicity
of Chorus Cof which he was a member three yearsl, and
co-senior editor of the Goldbug. As treasurer of Hi-Y
he embezzled so much that he took off for the woods of
New Hampshire where you'll find him next year at-
tending Dartmouth College where he will no doubt
continue as a humorist of sorts.
REUELLA ANN FIELD
In the middle of her junior year "Reuel" moved to

year. Interested in after-school sports, she participated
in them for three years. After high school she plans to
go directly into secretarial work. Knitting is the hobby
of this always-willing typist.
DONALD LEWIS GARDNER
You must agree that farming is a natural vocation
for an animal lover. "Don" does like animals and he
does plan to become a farmer.' Next year he expects
to study at Stockbridge School of Agriculture. His
teachers there may be started by the expression "How
about that?" but they'l1 have to get used to it.

KATHARINE TERESA GARVEY
"Gary", our willing arguer, has been active in Tri-S
and Pro Merito. A Student Council representative her
first two high school years, she was a debater and a

Pep Club, the girls' basketball team, and the Goldbug
business staff as a senior. "Kak's" motto is "Nobody's
opinion is worthless."
PHYLLIS JOSEPHINE HODGKINS

the Frankie Carle renditions, but she listens to others,
too. If any salesman ever tells her that he hasn't any

J. WARD KENNEDY
"Will" is noted especially for his Dixieland trom-
bone, which he tamed enough to play in the Band for
three years. He has also been a dependable back-
stroker on the swimming team for three years. Those
same three years were spent with the Chorus and
Science Club, too. Hi-Y, the Junior Class play of 1948,

mentsg his fabulous marks and diligent application to
study have been landmarks of Amherst High. Needless

latter group in his senior year. You may expect to hear
more of our class genius in his chosen field of research
or teaching. .
ROSEMARY ELIZABETH MADDEN
Here's "Rosie" or "Blondie," whichever nickname
you prefer. Let a word to the wise be sufficient, how-
ever, and choose the latter, because she says she doesn't
like to be called "Rosie" Rosemary's interest in knit-
ting seems to combine two of the courses which she
followed in her high school days: Art and Home Eco-
nomics. These courses will also probably enable her to
make a "home beautiful", although she says she has
no definite plans.

of the school paper, "Don" has developed his "But we
can't print that!" as it issues in a clear tenor from the
mysterious depths of the Graphic office. That tenor
has supported the chorus for three years, too. Besides
belonging to Pro Merito and Hi-Y, Don as a senior
was in the French, Science, and Pep Clubs. Student
Councilnmembership in his junior year and a part in
the Junior Class play of 1948 round out his activities.
Next year you will probably see him astride his bicycle
headed towards Amherst College.
VIOLA SUZANNE PATTERSON
From up the river came "Patty" during her senior
year where she was a member of the Spanish Club and
Red Cross at Greenfield High School. Since her hobby
is art she might go into that field after finishing school
although she has yet to outline her future -plans. "Could
be," she says, using her favorite expression.

AUDREY H. PECK
Says Audrey Cmore commonly called "Blimp"J,
"What'll I say?" She has been a member of Tri-S for
three years and was a Graphic typist in her senior year-
excellent practice for her future as a secretary.

IRENE CAROL PENZA
Writing letters is a logical hobby for a girl who plans
to become a secretary, don't you think? Irene has been
a member of Pro-Merito for two years and as a senior
was also a Graphic typist and a member of our Goldbug
JOANNA FRANCES PLAZA
"Gee whizzers" can be heard echoing from "Jo's"
mouth through our halls. Next year she's not quite
sure what she'll do-it's a toss-up between becoming a
stenographer and joining the Navy. CWe trust it will
be the WAVESJ
LINCOLN T. POTTER
"Line" is one who likes to "get in the swim". He has
received his letter in swimming all three years of high
school. He also has belonged to Chorus, Science Club,
and Hi-Y for these three years, and in his senior year
was sergeant-at-arms of Hi-Y. For the last two years
"Lino" has been a varsity debater, exchange editor of
the Graphic, and a member of Pro Merito. When a
freshman, he acted in the Junior Class play, and when
a senior he was a member of French Club and the
Goldbug business staff.
RICHARD FRANCIS PERCHAK
In his Senior year "Dick" was one of the shining lights
of our football team. Playing at end position he caught
many a pass for many a yard.

DONALD J. ROSSI
Meet "Cheetah", the class' little guy. Don is one of
the original "Dudes" with Boynton, Dow, and com-
pany, and can usually be found with them. Seeking an
easy way up in the world, he makes his main interest
NICHOLAS JERRY ROCO
Big and friendly, C280 pounds and 2 friends per
poundj "Nick" won't hesitate to straighten one out
with his familiar "Wise up, Mac." Though he has been
a competent Projectionist for three years, "Little Nick"
is probably best known for his football prowess during
his first two high school years when he was the left
side of the line. Stockbridge is to be lucky enough to
THERESA MARIE ROGERS
Always kidding, "Tee" carefully explains, "Don't
take me seriously." In her freshman year "Terry"
was a member of Tri-S. Hailing from the plains of
Leverett, she busies herself at square dancing and
baking. Next year she will attend Northampton Com-
mercial College preparing to be a secretary.
MARIE ELLA SANCTUARY
"Marie's" big brown eyes flash as she berates her
pal with the customary "Oh, honestly, Marge!" This
pretty South Amherst native played softball as a junior
and basketball and softball as a senior. She plans to be
a stenographer, but next year will probably find her at
Providence Bible Institute. Among her interests she
lists art, music, and horses.
MARION HENRIETTA SIROSKEY
"Dolly" is another future nurse, though her interest
in sports may fool you. She has been an ardent sup-
porter of girls' after-school sports throughout her three
years, including membership on, the basketball and
softball teams her last two. Friendly Marion earned
Pro Merito membership, belonged to Tri-S, and was a
Graphic typist as a senior.

RAYMOND J. M. SPILLANE
If you know "Ray" you realize that his nickname
"Shorty" doesn't really fit him. At the beginning of
his junior year he came to Amherst from West Spring-
field High where he played football. Here he has also
been on the team besides being a member of French
Club in his junior year and active in Chorus and Pep
Club in his Senior year. In the middle of his Senior
year, "Ray" left to join the Armed Forces.

a Senior, and T ri-S. Next year she plans to become
You'll find friendly, smiling "Ray" in the gym prac-
ticing his favorite sport, basketball. As a senior he was
an important cog in last winter's basketball picture.
He also was a member of French Club as a junior and
in his last year was elected to Student Council.
ALDEN TUTTLE, JR.
Alden, or as his friends call him, "Tut", is rather
hard to miss because of his height. He's the tall lanky
lad with the ambling gait, who has the talent for being
late-even to exams. Sometime in the future he hopes
to attend the U. of M. to further his education.
GRACE KATHLEEN SULLIVAN
"Oh, boy!" says Grace when she gets excited and
excited she becomes over the prospect of someday
being an airplane stewardess. Grace belonged to Tri-S
as a freshman and when a senior successfully partici-
pated in softball and volley ball. She claims flowers
as her hobby.
KATHLEEN M. WHITE
"Kathie" naturally also came from Waltham. Since
her arrival she has belonged to Chorus and Tri-S, and

Goldbug staff and belonged to Science Club and Pep
Club. "Kathie" hopes to go to the University next fall
to study for medical work of some sort.

.IOAN M. WHITTEMORE
D In her senior year ",Ioanie" received the honor of
being elected president of the Western Massachusetts

she found time to represent the A.H.S. girls at the
Amherst Youth Hostel.
