What is a gold bug? 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.

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
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.

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.

ELIZABETH MARY ADAMITIS
There's "Liz',! "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
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. She was a member of the girls' basketball
team in her first and last years, and of the softball team as a junior.
Also as a junior, "Janie" was treasurer of Student Council. In her
senior year she was on the Gold Bug and Graphic staff. "Janie" plans
to attend the University of Massachusetts.
"Emy" is a girl we won't forget for a long time. She is interested
in many fields, although she did not have time to join many activities
while in high school. She was a member of chorus for three years
and of Tri-S in her freshman and junior years. As a junior she played
tennis and was in the one act play, and as a senior was a member of
the Gold Bug staff and secretary-treasurer of the Rocks and Minerals
Club. After graduation "Emy" plans to attend the University of
Massachusetts and eventually become a history teacher.
One of the busier spirits in A. H. 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.

"Don't be like that!" identifies "Be Be", who is interested in dancing,
sports, and collecting photographs. 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.
"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

work is undecided.

anything, she may soon be applying that interest.

candle light service.

ming and in playing volley ball and badminton.

Very early in the year the members of the Outing
Club drew up a list of field' trips including mountain-
eering, skating, skiing, and bike hikes.
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-
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.

French Club met every Friday afternoon with
many varied programs. 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-
gThe French Club provided perhaps the most inter-
esting float in the Booster Day rally Parade, showing
Jeanne d,Arc killing the Leicester boys.

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.

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.

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
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.

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
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.

Under new head coach John McDonough Amherst
High came through to produce one of its better
records in recent years. Although not being cham-
pions Amherst High gained the runner-up position
in the Hampshire League, winning eleven and losing
Bumsy in for enemy's ball
three. 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.

The 1953 edition of the baseball team closed a
chapter in Amherst High School sports. 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

One of the hardest working
groups in the high school is the
Cheerleaders. Constant practice, on
the job at all games and creating
new songs, cheers, and acts keep
them busy from September to June.
Cathy Snyder was chosen in the fall
to captain the cheer girls and under
her leadership they acquired new
uniforms and created several new
routines. Cathy's young niece,
Gayle, was introduced as the
group's mascot at the Small School
Tournament, attracting much fa-
vorable attention to the Cheer-
leaders and the Whole Amherst root-
