Too many people are so down in the mouth that they never see the good things of life. Someone once said, " Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone. ” Since long faces haven’t changed the world so far, Heaven knows it ' s time something was done. So here I am in my old cheer outfit, a grin on my face, just bustin ' to make everyone else open his mouth and laugh and cheer.

Not only have they shown scholastic ability but they have continued to support all school activities, especially Orchestra and Pep Club. Their class gave a fine per- formance of " Arsenic and Old Lace” in the fall. With Miss Donley as adviser, the class of 1953 will un- doubtedly enlarge upon its achievements next year. First Row: B.

They have participated this year in many school activities, especially Chorus and Dramatic Club. As members of the highly suc- cessful J-V team, they have shown much athletic prowess.

As always, this day was climaxed by the club supper and formal aceptance of members. Several dances were sponsored by the club. The cus- tomary Christmas and spring formals proved to be two exciting and decorative events of the year. A square dance earlier in the fall was another social function of the club. The service project was the sending of clothes to less fortunate people in Kentucky. Tri-S proved their sportsmanship by playing several volley ball games with the Hi-Y this year and losing gracefully. First Row: J. Sanders, P. Brown, J. Bell, D. Britt, J. Poignand, J. Major, G.

The initiation evoked much hilarity when a would-be member held up the lunchroom cash register and walked off with the loot, leaving Miss Pinnick in a state of collapse.

Instead of putting on one big pro- duction the members have spent their time learning stage and acting techniques. Correct costumes, positions on stage, and how to walk on the stage are a few of the many dramatic skills the club members mastered this year. Mrs. Lyman’s resignation in February was felt to be a loss by members who had gained much from her work with them as adviser.

In the fall they went to the Practice De- bate Tournament in Northampton and the Na- tional Forensic League Congress in Laconia, N. H. In March and April they attended the Model Congress in Chicopee and the A.I.C. Congress respectively.

Dr. Fraker from Amherst gave an interesting lecture on Spain at a fall meeting. This organization, as usual, maintained a very honored membership. In order to become a member, one must have earned during his high school years a total of 20 points. An A counts 5 points, a B counts 0 points, and a C counts -5. Several honors won by our members were : elections of Helen Cary as secretary for the issachusetts Pro Merito society and Barbara ark as regional vice-president. The fall regional meeting was held in Hat- d. The state conference gathered at North- pton. FRENCH CLUB Seated: B. Clark, president; D. Britt, pro- gram chairman. Standing: D. Dowd, treasurer; Miss Barackman, adviser; H. Fuller, secretary. Never a dull moment might well be the motto of the French Club. Their many meetings of the year were always varied and interesting. If the members weren’t learning French songs and games, they were attempting French cookery in the form of chocolate souffles. Several movies were shown and an interesting speaker from the University lectured at one meeting. Recordings of both classical and popular music in- spired the club to plan a trip to the " Ballet Russe” in February. First Row: D. Brotherton, M. Ansaldo, C. Pearl, I. Sirosky, E. Beville, L.

Reports were made by club members on phases of science of espe- cial interest to themselves and of general in- terest to the group, and science films about gasoline and sulphur products were shown. Interesting displays were placed on the sci- ence news table in the hall. Some of the exhibits included interesting news articles and others were local interest displays. During the year, a field trip was made to the Nickel Cadmium Battery Plant in East- hampton and another to the American Optical Company in Southbridge, Massachusetts. First Row: D. Montague, secretary; M. Burke, president; J. Blaisdell, program chairman. Second Row: H. Cary, treasurer; Mr. Swift, adviser; M. Potter, vice-president. The projectionists, under the supervision of Mr. Swift, take charge of all the audio-visual programs of the Senior High School as well as most of the Junior High School programs. This work includes a number of diversified duties. Over two hundred sound moving picture films for class rooms, activities, and assemblies are used each year. Many slide, filmstrip, and opaque projector programs are presented. The members of the club take regular turns in being responsible for the best presentation of these programs. In addition they set up and supervise the use of microphones, amplifying systems, the tape recorder, and other special apparatus. This is a very active, capable group that takes pride in a superior presentation. 40 First Row: L. Musante, W. Osgood, C. Rule, R. Comings, A. Giannetti. Second Row: W, Markert, L, Dowd, C. Barry, E.

PEP CLUB Still propelled by the spirit and enthusiasm it showed when it was organized last year, the Pep Club swung into action in time for the first football game. The much needed interest revival in our foot- ball team can be accredited to the Pep Club. At least one bus load of students went to each game and for the last game there were three buses of students and the band. More spirit and attendance, especially at home games, was displayed during basketball season, and at least one bus of students accompanied the team on every out-of-town trip. The leaders of this long- needed club are largely responsible for its success. They have really worked to keep the members enthusiastic and on the job at all athletic meets. The purchase of beanies not only helped the treasury but brightened the Pep Club section. This year’s cheerleading squad will always be remembered for its neatness, originality, ability to lead the crowd, and its spirit. Besides the traditional cheers, the cheerleaders made new cheers, songs, and a clever novelty act. These cheerleaders did an excellent job of leading the school in its display of good sportsmanship at the Small High School Basketball Tournament held at the University of Massachusetts in March.

SEVENTH PERIOD CLUB Several new activities were suggested for the school ' s free seventh period tliis year. Students who did not wish to join other activities joined these new groups which proved profitable and enjoyable to all involved. Mr. Oliver sponsored an organization with a prac- tical use in mind. Members were taught the ways to repair and reseat chairs. An activity known as " games in the library” was provided by Miss Hale who helped to gather students in a fun session. Every Monday and Thursday, many students met in the library to learn Canasta, pitch, and many other enjoyable games. In the arts and crafts department Miss Rafferty met with a small group in the art building. During the year the members completed colorful block print- ings and varied leather products. For all boys who had the urge to indulge in fresh air activities the Rod and Gun Club was their refuge. Here the boys learned about gun safety for hunting. Many films pertaining to hunting and fishing were shown. Several trips to the Norwottuck Fish and Game club in Belchertown and the Sunderland Fish Hatchery kept the club very active. I SPORTS CLUB The intramural sports for boys and girls met in the gym Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Bad- minton, basketball, square dancing, and volleyball were some of the games played. 74 f i k a ( 1 J First Row: B. Drake, E. Weaver, G. Lee, D. Jacquc, R. Roys, E. Hart, T. Knightly, R.

CHORUS With shrieks of " Too Late” from the girls and jovial replies of " Ha-Ha-Ho-Ho- Ho” from the boys, the music department began the hustle and bustle of show busi- ness. This year’s " Pirates of Penzance” by Gilbert and Sullivan became another op- eretta to add to the school’s repertoire and perhaps the last by these celebrated authors. Although the Chorus lacked men, it did not lack spirit. The double quartet consisted of an all new member cast this year, but, at their Christmas concert, they proved to be a strong and talented group. R. Ames, J. Blaisdell, E. Wheeler, J. Avery, M.

BAND The music department lost several vital members last year but, as this year’s production proved, we knew how to fill their places with plenty of hard work and new talent. On the football field the majorettes produced a colorful display of baton twirling. Behind them, marched the band to support all home football games and enliven the atmosphere. At the last game of the season in Dalton, the band appeared on the field to highlight the school’s spirit. When basketball season rolled around the band members devised a new organization to support this team too. Under the direction of Arthur Niedeck, a new Pep Band was formed. In February three of the band members were sent to the All-State festival in Framingham, to participate in the orchestra and band concerts. The music organizations owe a great deal of thanks to " Pop” Schuler who worked hard to make all the musical productions a success. First Row: A. Ward well, B. Colt, L. Hare, E. Harvey, R.

ORCHESTRA Most of the Orchestra productions were scheduled for the spring of the year although some concerts were given for the Women’s Club by the String Quartet and the Woodwind Ensemble early in the fall. After many weekly rehearsals held seventh period on Mondays, part of the Orchestra supported the musical performance of " Creatures of Impulse” pro- duced by the Junior High Chorus on March 14th and the performance of the Senior High production, " Pirates of Penzance,” at Bowker Auditorium in April. A Festival Concert for the public was given on May l6th. In February thirteen members from the Orchestra and Chorus met in Framingham with stu- dents of other schools for the Massachusetts Music Festival. The Orchestra consists of twenty-eight senior high school and twelve junior high school members. Sev- eral elementary students sit in on regular rehearsals for practice. Mr. Schuler plans to have a sixty to eighty piece orchestra eventually but in the meantime he is intro- ducing music to the younger students as well as the older so that music appreciation and education in the Amherst High School will be greatly improved in the years to come.

The group made its debut at the first home basketball game and has appeared at most of the home games this year. The band was organized to perform on oc- casions where it was impossible to accommo- date the large all-sch ool band. Its membership is purely voluntary and it operates as an extra curicular activity, practicing usually only before appearances. Except for Tom Sullivan, junior high mem- ber, it is comprised of all senior high people. Sullivan, absent from the picture, plays trumpet. MAJORETTES Two years ago next September, a group of fresh- men girls organized and began taking lessons in the active art of baton twirling. Today this small group comprises one of the most colorful organizations in the school. Phil Jensen of Springfield, a one time champion twirler, gives lessons to this group and to several people from the junior high and elementary grades. The cost of lessons is defrayed by each individual member. The Majorettes are worried about the near future of the organization inasmuch as they are all juniors with only two people now in training in the junior high school. One more year may see the end of a very important part of the music department unless interest is aroused in the lower classes and more students begin training at once. The Majorettes entertained in last spring’s music festival, a part of the annual openhouse festivities, and at several of this season’s football and basketball games both here and at other schools.

Amherst High’s 1951 football record of three wins and five losses was far from being a poor one for the ’51 season. The fight and spirit of the team was the highest in the league and four of the losses were close, low scoring games. Coach John McDonough’s boys opened the season By losing a heartbreaker to Palmer, score 6-2. In this game Conklin intercepted a pass and raced eighty- four yards for a touchdown only to have it called back on a penalty. This proved to be the most severe penalty of the season. From then on Enfield, Holyoke Catholic, and Farmington, Connecticut, nosed the Hurricanes. Led by Captain Maia, Doherty, Dzuiba and Hart in the backfield, Amherst romped to victories over Ware, South Hadley, and Ludlow. Dalton stopped Amherst at an 18-14 score in the maroon and white’s final game. Winning their third football letters were Captain Maia, Mannheim, Knightly, and Dzuiba. Allen, Cavanaugh, Doherty, and Conklin won their second letters.

Competition in the Hampshire League was very tough this season and Amherst finished fifth with an eight-eight record. A poor start and finish were the Hurricanes’ big downfall. Led by Captain Charlie Mannheim, Maia, Page, Keegan and Dziuba, the Amherst squad nearly upset Hop- kins, St. Michaels, Smith Academy, and South Hadley in their final tilts, and the good sportsmanship of the local boys gave them a chance to play in the Western Massa- chusetts Small High School Tournament in March. Coach Williams awarded letters to Capt. Mannheim, Maia, Page, Keegan, Dziuba, Hall, Westcott, and Ansaldo, all seniors. Junior lettermen were Conklin and Gianetti.

SWIMMING The swimming team, under the experienced coaching of I Toe Roeers from the Univer- ■ Joe Rogers from the Univer sity of Massachusetts, totaled four losses and one win this season. The unsuccessful rec- ord was due largely to the inexperience of most of the fellows. With the exception of five boys, the complete team was composed of new members from the freshman and junior classes. The only win for the Col- legetown mermen came when Holyoke High School went down to defeat in the Univer- sity of Massachusetts pool. In a return meet with Holy- oke, our natatory crew was overcome by a score of 34 to 32. In the Western Counties Championship Swimming Tournament, Amherst had fi- nalists in every event but fail- 1 ed to receive enough points to achieve any more than fourth place in the meet. This year, the CoUegetown- ers swam against Holyoke, Classical, Williston, and Deer- || field Academy. Also the boys I took part in the Massachusetts " Swimming and Diving Cham- J pionship Contest held at II Gardner.

There’s magic in lights . . . add a light here, place a spot- light there, and yonr portrait takes on the appearance of real form and individuality. Your Vantine photographer knows how lighting effects can be best used. . . . How easily they can reflect your person- ality. Your Vantine photographer knows best how to secure the sharply etched photograph your engraver desires of the im- portant senior year. . . . The victories of the athletic teams. . . . The brilliance of social occasions. . . . The Prom . . . The plays. . . . The debates. . . . The expression of every- day life on the campus. That personalized portraits by Vantine are important is at- tested to by the fact that over 300 schools and colleges re- peatedly entrust their photographic work to Vantine.
