How is it connected with Amherst High School? As a title should it suggest the contents of the Yearbook? Once adopted should a name be retained forever? To answer these questions your 1954 Gold Bug editors delved into past editions of the annual and this is what was found: In 1918 the first edition of the Gold Bug appeared with no ex- planation as to the origin of the name, nor use of it as a theme. This has been true of all available copies issued since then. Four times in the ensuing years enterprising yearbook staffs attempted title changes, but deviated only partially from tradition. In 1935 our insect was promoted to a nautical career in a book entitled "The Cruise of the Gold Bug". In 1936 the bug was pushed into the background and used only as a subtitle in the annual, "Who's Who". Twice again, in 1939 and 1942, yearbook staffs defied tradition and used "The Album" and "The Docket" on the cover, but inside appeared the additional title of "Gold B Z". As a gesture of independence or perhaps as a typographical error, the 1946 staff created a precedent by spelling the name as one word, "Goldbug". I For thirty-six years then, this unheralded insect has kept year- book staffs under its thumb. We, the thirty-seventh staff, being powerless to move this thumb, have then tried to use our lowly lord to his best advantage. Here he is dominating these pages from bottom to top in-the progress of the gold bug. l- L - , , -.--1113" E J 5 4 3 Lf I Q .1 Rin g around Perronie. A A Sure Win- Little Moe 85 Big Moe.

GGODRICH T 0 the Clam of 154 On behalf of the Amherst School Committee and the administration of the Amherst ,Public Schools, I am pleased to extend you greetings and to congratu- late you for the excellent Work which you have per- formed in the preparation of this edition of the GOLD BUG. In June, the members of the class of 1954 will complete a definite achievement through the act of graduation from high school. A number of you will be continuing your education at institutions of higher learning. Others will be seeking jobs, and still others will be entering the service of their country. As you leave us and depart for places far and Wide, may I ask each of you to realize the importance of his Work and the valuable contribution it can make to the welfare of our country. We live in critical times, but the history of our country tells us that We in America have survived a substantial number of critical periods. I have tremendous faith in the youth of today and have complete confidence that they will face the future with determination to make this world a better place in which to live. RALPH W. GOODRICH Superintendent of Schools Eight of l1iS ake t0 if our irvived ny 2l'1Cl Ee the better ools l l l KINGSLEY A. PERRY t To the Senior: Immanuel Kant based his ethical philosophy on the ' precept that no one should do that, which if everyone did, t X Would destroy society. Many of us know this in another MARION LEONARD form as the Golden Rule. At any rate as graduates of Secretary Amherst High School and as future citizens of a disturbed World, these thoughts may serve you as a guide to action as they have many other thinking people before you.

"How about that?', Taking an active part in intra- murals, she also played guard on the girls' basketball team. Sports and music are her favorite hobbies, but her future plans are as yet undecided. JANE.ADAMS A very active member of the class of '54, "Janie,' will always be remembered for her golden voice. Being musically minded she was a member of chorus, orchestra, band, and pep band. For three years she belonged to Pep Club and Tri-S, serving as treasurer of the latter in her senior year. For her last two years "Janie" was a peppy cheerleader and a member of Outing Club, as well as being secretary- treasurer of Pro Merito.

S., Mary took an active part in sports. Playing guard on the girls' basketball team during her fresh- man and junior years, catching on the softball team for three years, and playing tennis in her last two years, she still found time to belong to Tri-S, French Club, and Pep Club for three years. Besides this, Mary was a member of Pro Merito, secretary of the Student Council, and Co-Business Manager of the Gold Bug during her senior year.

She took part in intramurals throughout high school. Being a typist for the Gold Bug illustrates her wish to do secretarial work in the future, but the ring on her left hand says she has other plans too. WILLIAM BATES l "Bill" QClarabellej , known by his "What's that Prove?" has been a three year participant in Games Club and was a member of Pro Merito while a senior. He classifies his hobbies as rabbit and pigeon raising, but woodworking and model railroading have also held his interest, and in line with the latter he plans to attend a trade school and become an auto mechanic or an electrician. Jo ANN BELL "Jon rates the special honor of being the only girl in the Math IV class this year-quite a distinction. Tri-S, Pep Club, and French Club helped to keep her occupied throughout her A. H. S. days, particularly the last which benefited by her services as secretary her 'unior and senior ears Partici ating in chorus for two during J y - P years and in Dramatics Club for one, she was also on the Gold Bug staff.

"Jackie's" favorite hobbies include piano playing and sewing. Fifteen he f , e . X V. JEAN ELIZABETH BIRGE "Jeanne" is often heard repeating her familiar expression, "m-m-m, boy." During her high school days she took part in intramurals and was a member of Games Club. Her favorite hobbies are skating, roller and ice, basketball, and motorcycle riding. "Jeanne's" future work is undecided. EUGENE H. BOULANGER Here's "Bumsey", one of our greatest all-round men. "Bumsey,' has been very active in sports since his freshman year, for during the past three years he has been an important member of the basketball team and a star on the football squad. He has also taken part in school activities including Games, Sports, and the Rod and Gun Club. "Bumsey" carries his enthusiasm for sportsmanship in and out of school, and is popular with everyone. Work sums up his plans DELORES MAY BROWN for the future. WILLIAM BOYNTON Bill, a hunter and fisherman at heart, was a devotee of auto mech- anics and che-mistry in A. H. S. A supporter- of Games and Sports clubs, during his junior year, he is optimistic but undecided about the future.

Here is an auto racing fan and a three year supporter of Tri-S, also a Gold Bug typist. Although undecided about the future, she has an interest in home economics, she says, and if the stone on her left hand means anything, she may soon be applying that interest. DOROTHY LOUISE COLBY "Glad to meet youg I,m 'Doby' " is this gal's reply to anyones mentioning that he is cold, ill, or tired. As a matter of fact, that comment is -heard 'quite often from this wellftraveled lass. Three years participation in French Club and Pep Club plus freshman and junior years in Tri-S have not left a mark on her. Her junior and senior years were also devoted to the Outing Club and Graphic, and in her last year she was faculty editor for the Gold Bug. In the future "DobyH sees the University of Colorado and then kinder- garten teaching.

Tm'-.Y Ninety-strong, Tri-S went full steam ahead on its service project, dances, parties, and other entertain- ment this year. At the beginning of the year the incoming fresh- men were duly initiated and then treated to a turkey supper after which they took part in an impressive candle light service. On October 29, the group had a lively Hallowe'en party at the home of Cathy Snyder, president. Cider and doughnuts were served. A The usual winter formal was held in early January with the queen and attendants chosen by ballot. Cathy Snyder was elected queen with. Susan Bunn and Charlotte Matuszko, attendants. ' Tri-S members made maroon and white tissue paper flowers and streamers and sold them to students for use at the tournament. The service project for the year was the making of favors for Easter for local Old Ladies' Homes. The group showed its physical strength in swim- ming and in playing volley ball and badminton. . ,.., ........-...ii Sean presi Q' Law X . First Row: J. Bell, J. Couch, C. Glazier, M. Tessier, S.

Early in October they made an expedition to Bash- Bish Falls in the Berkshires, where they found good hiking in the hills and rocks. Typical of excursions of this type, everyone went home completely ex- hausted. Next on the agenda was rollerskating at the Gables, followed by skiing at Brattleboro's Hogback Moun- tain ski area. Swimming in March was followed by a bike hike, and winding up the year was a mountain climb-picnic at Mount Sunapee. The weekend ski trip, though planned, was not taken, due to a change in the weather. , .5 vw'-"MM-Q QW: f WW? First ROWf,J..BroWn. N. Avery, B. Handrich, s. smith, c.

They tried their hand at cooking and baking French dishes, watched films on the country of their interest, recorded their .own renditions of French songs, and enjoyed the talks of such speakers as Professor Atkinson of Amherst Col- le e. gThe French Club provided perhaps the most inter- esting float in the Booster Day rally Parade, showing Jeanne d,Arc killing the Leicester boys.

Dmmmfzlcs Club The Dramatics Club spent the year in learning from Mr. Perrone many of the arts of stage craft, beginning with the manners of the stage through im- provisations and pantomimes and then continuing to the types of stage makeup and how to apply them. Many of the club members Went on the trip to Spring- Held to see "Time out for Ginger". By far the high point in the year's activities was the preparation and competition presentation of the one act play "JinXed". Along with the Eve member cast, about fifteen club members went to Wellesley Where "JinXed" com- peted with eight other one act plays from other Massachusetts high schools. Although the Amherst group took no honors, it was :felt by all present that they did a very fine job and everyone certainly bene- fited by the experience. Forty one Tkiiei 'T ' l 3 "' 1. wb.

In the fall, on November 7, the club sponsored the Booster Day Game with Leicester and the dance at night, both of which were successes despite poor weather. During basketball season, its members remained faithful to the team at all games. 3 Pr0jectz'0mkt.f Popular with 'boys is the Projectionists Club which is respon- sible for operating very valuable equipment in the way of slide and opaque' projectors, microphones and amplifiers.

Defl r 1,1 Seventh Period Aetimhes l Along with the regular established clubs, there were organized groups known as the Seventh Period Ac- tivities. These popular groups included intramurals for both girls and boys, arts and crafts, chair caning, games, and personal typing. Those in intramural sports could be found Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays in the gym or at the field, weather per- mitting, taking part in those sports which were in season. Arts and crafts for the girls meant meeting in the art building with Miss Rafferty and working mostly in ceramics. For the boys there were meetings in the shop repairing and building things. Those in chair caning met with Mr. Oliver and were taught how to make chair seats and backs out of reed strips. The typists practiced under the direction of Miss Pole in the t in room, erfectin their techni ues. Y YP s P s ' q Probably the most popular of the seventh period ac- tivities was the games club, meeting in the library. Under Miss Hale's direction the group learned and played many varied card games, and some other table games. As you can see, there was some activity to interest just about everyone, and the attendance at these activities showed that almost everyone took an active interest in these clubs.

Bmw' The band is composed of about Hfty members, in- cluding both senior and junior high students. It began the season by appearing at all the home football games and attending one away game to highlight the school,s spirit. During basketball season Amherst was invited to the tournament at which the band played for three nights, receiving a great deal of attention and praise. During the year they played for the Amherst Music League and the Parent-Teachers Association, and took part in the High School Rally. This year four band members, Glenn Bennett, Mary Ellen Thompson, Peter Conklin, and Thomas Sullivan, were fortunate enough to join with the College Vari- ety Show. During their Christmas vacation they went to Bermuda and to the Azores in the spring, playing at air force bases. In the spring they also played for the Community Fair, in a Joint Concert, on the Memorial Day pro- gram, and at the Western Massachusetts Festival. The band has really been active this year and the music organization owes a great deal to "Pop" Schuler, its enthusiastic and hard working mentor.

Faotba ll Amherst High School came through this year to produce a much stronger and more experienced team than that of the preceding year. Although small in size and crippled by injuries this year's team proved to overcome its misfortunes by their high spirits on the Held. After dropping their first three games to the tough competitors Enfield, Palmer, and Holyoke Catholic, Amherst came through to break into the winning column by defeating South Hadley, score 19-6. Am- herst dropped their fourth loss to Ludlow by a score of 19-12. At this point in the season the Hurricanes' record looked bad but the high-spirited boys came back strong to win the next two games over Ware and Leicester. The last game of the season the Hurri- canes dropped to Wfilliamstown. Much credit has to be given to the strong Amherst line led by Captain Boulanger and Charles Barry. The most dangerous weapon Coach McDonough had, however, was the hard running.of Bob Moran. Coach McDonough can look forward to a most successful season next year when twelve lettermen will return. D.

The Hurricanes had to play its strong rival Hopkins Academy for the league championship, only to lose by one basket in a second period overtime 42-40. Due to the good sportsmanship showed by the players and fans Amherst received an invitation to the Small High Basketball Tournament at the Uni- versity of Massachusetts. In tournament play Am- herst defeated Chester and Williamstown, then met Ludlow in the final round. Ludlow emerged the victor in this Hnal game, but was forced to the limit by a scrappy and determined Hurricane live. Joy takes rebound. i I V Basketball P- Mannheim, C- H0Sf01?d, R. Crowley, M.

This season marked the end of the long and successful coaching career of "Coach" Williams. Although this baseball team failed to achieve the greatness that past teams have enjoyed, they did man- age to finish with a winning season of six wins and four losses. Pat Joy was the mainstay on the mound and proved to be a top notch pitcher. Coach Williams found an inheld which was outfitted completely with freshmen. Pat Joy is the only letterman not return- ing to the 1954 squad. New head coach Alex John- ston can look forward to Ending some experienced ball players when choosing his line-up for the 1954 season.
