AMHERST REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL GOLD BUG 1960 THE ROBERT EROST EDITION THE ROAD NOT TAKEN Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair. And having perhaps the better claim. Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference. To Robert Frost we dedicate this book. It is our way of saying thanks to him, our favorite poet, for the beauty and feeling he has translated into words, for the inspiration he is to all who aspire to write, and for the gestures of friendship he has made to Amherst youth. One could do worse than be a swinger of birches. -Birches FACULTY 5 ELEANOR FILLMORE Guidance; Assistant Principal University of Massachusetts, B.S., M.S.

FOOTBALL For the first time in more than twenty years, the Amherst football team completed an undefeated season. As the highlight of the season, the Canes swept through the Intercounty League without losing a contest enroute to sole possession of the crown. This was the first Am- herst team to hold the Intercounty title undisputedly. The team started the season by whipping the only non-league opponent on the schedule, Williamstown, 18-12. This triumph was followed by victories over Frontier, Arms, and AAahar. The Canes took a giant step toward the league crown by blasting a favored South Hadley eleven, 28-0. This victory was followed by another smashing triumph, as the Cane ' s made it two in a row with a 30-0 blanking of Ware, previously undefeated. The Canes finished the season by squeezing out wins over Murdock and Ludlow. The key to the season was the combination of a stalwart defense and break-away offense. The Canes came up with their top performances of the season when they were most needed. Individual laurels went to Tom Parkinson, All-In- tercounty League fullback. He paced the Intercounty League in scoring and was close to fhe top all season in the Western Mass, scoring lists. Other ARHS All-Inter- county players were Cliff Allen, Wes Cembalisty, and Dennis Patnaude. This trio comprised the left side of the all-star team line and was responsible for the dif- ficulty the opposition faced in running against the Canes. Other seniors turning in top performances were Bill Ennis, end; Steve Smith and Jim Allen, guards; and Tom Martin, Steve Stone, Charlie Domina, and Bob Wilson, backs.

VARSITY BASKETBALL The Amherst Regional Hurricanes compiled a fine 13 and 4 record to finish second in the Hampshire League. In the three independent games which opened the ' Canes ' ' 59-60 season, ARHS copped one victory. The triumph over Athol, however, proved to be one of the biggest wins of the season. Amherst was one of three teams to defeat the Athol five which was later invited to the Western Mass. Tournament. West Spring- field and a strong Northampton team administered the early losses to the Hurricanes. Once the Hampshire schedule opened, the Hurri- canes hit their stride. Hopkins, Frontier, Pioneer, St. Michaels, and Arms were easily defeated twice. South Hadley and Smith Academy were a different story. The two contests with the Tigers were two of the best of the Hampshire League season. Amherst took the first, 51-50, at South Hadley and decisioned the Tigers 55-53 on the home court. Smith Academy, the Hampshire champs and West- ern Mass. Tournament winners, were the only league five to down the ' Canes. They bested ARHS easily in Amherst, 68-47, but had trouble when the Hurricanes traveled to the Hatfield Court, 63-54. While there was no one big scorer for the ' Canes, they owed their success to the balanced scoring of the starting five. Bob Wilson topped the team with Cliff Allen, Eddie Trachy, Tom Parkinson, and Chuck O ' Rourke all close to the 10 points per game mark. Denny Was- kiewicz did a fine job as the team ' s number six man and filled in ably for Tom Parkinson when the latter was injured late in the season. Bruce Meader, the sixtn senior on the team, performed well when called upon.

A good portion of this year ' s little Hurricanes will supply the main punch for Coach Correale ' s team next year. The J.V. ' s held their opponents to an average of 41 points per game while they themselves averaged 51 per game.

BASEBALL The 1959 baseball season proved to be an ex- tremely satisfactory one with Coach Charles Abramson directing the high school squad for the first time. Coach Abramson did a fine job of " whipping his nine into shape " in a couple of weeks as Northampton ' s team found out in the opening game. Amherst bats cracked sixteen hits in the " Hamp " game and for the remainder of the season hard hit balls threatened each opposing team. The team ' s record was nearly a perfect one, with two heartbreaking losses to Arms Academy. The 1960 season looks as though it will be as good a year, if not better, with six of the nine starters back from the ' 59 team. Coach Abramson will have to find men to replace the vacated shortstop, centerfield, and first base positions. Some of the highlights of the ' 59 season might be found in the power hitting exhibition by Bill O ' Brien, who parked one well-hrt ball in the wading pool, and the superb pitching performances by Ed Putnam and Cliff Allen. Putnam had a record of 8-1 while Allen pitched to a sparkling 6-2, very good record for an underclassman. Cliff will be back in the ' 60 season as the number one pitcher.

They came out on top with Turners, Greenfield, Longmeadow, Holyoke, Northampton, South Hadley, Athol, and Frontier. They placed sec- ond to Cathedral High in a three-way meet at Gardner, with Mahar coming in last. With a number of good lettermen returning. Coach Kenneth Caouette hopes to repeat last year ' s record. From all indications interest among underclassmen is high, and the boys may top the list o f valley tracksters this spring. FIRST ROW: A.

Averaging 15.8 points per game to their opponents ' 8.8 points per game, the team won decisive victories over Pioneer and two very close games over Frontier and Nort- hampton. Good pitching, hard hitting, and strong de- fensive work proved to be a valuable asset to the suc- cess of the team. Amherst Frontier . 6 7 Frontier 14 5 Northampton 11 12 Pioneer 8 16 Northampton 7 6 Pioneer 7 49 25 BASKETBALL The Varsity team ended a highly com- mendable 1960 season with seven victories and four defeats. Averaging 28 points per game, the sharpshooting forwards scored a total of 308 points while the excellent de- fensive work of the guards held the op- ponents to only a total of 219 points. The ARHS girls were beaten only by Frontier Regional and Greenfield; decisive victories were won over South Hadley, Pioneer, and St. Michael ' s. The guards played their best games also against South Hadley and Pioneer, in which games the opponents were very limited in their scoring. The most exciting match was played with Frontier. Although the Amherst team went down to defeat 33-32, the game was very close all the way, and the lead changed hands several times during the play.

The Cheerleaders, always an active group, were particularly busy this yeaf. In addition to their regular schedule of performances at all football and basketball games away and at home, they sponsored a triple header basketball event shortly before Christmas to raise money for uniforms and for the banquet honoring the football team. The triple header included women faculty members versus senior girls, faculty men versus alumni, and two local teams. The Small Schools Tournament offers the girls an opportunity to display their well-practiced routines before a large and appreciative group of spectators. Their time, efforts, and talent paid off this March when they performed there in support of the Hurricanes. Members of this organization are chosen by a committee of faculty members and a student committee of the same size appointed by class officers. Contestants for a place on the squad try out and the committees make their selections. J.V. cheer- leaders are chosen in the same way and are eligible for positions on the varsity squad upon graduation of veterans. To the cheerleaders goes some of the credit for the winning teams of ARMS. They deserve cheers for their loyal leadership and for their support of the competitive sports of the school. 29 FIRST ROW; P. Cook, K. Guyott, T. Hemenway. SECOND ROW: C. Vendette, B. Dickinson, G.

They also worked to make the football banquet a success. MAJORETTES The majorettes added to the half- time entertainment at home football and basketball games and to the Booster Day Parade. The group distinguished them- selves in the big October parade in cele- bration of Amherst ' s Bicentennial. FIRST ROW; D. Lapinski, K. Chase, N. Houston, S. Smith, C. Domina, B. Mather, H.

This year a mail box was in- I stalled, a movie was sponsored, and a comb dispensing machine was added. N. Houston, S. Smith, Mr. Oliver, C. Domina. ABSENT: V. Ward. I, ! The Student Council, staffed by mem- bers elected from each homeroom and its officers elected by ballot, is responsible for the good relations among students and between students and faculty. The Council I met each Wednesday of the school year and its homeroom members reported each PRO MERITO At a special Pro Merito assembly in March, the members of Pro Merito were awarded pins. At this meeting Thomas Herlihy of Deerfield Academy spoke on the subject, " The Value of the Academic in this Age. " Earlier in the year Prof. Rose of the University of Massachusetts spoke to a joint meeting of Pro Merito and the Mathe- matics Club. His subject was " Finite and Infinite Numbers. " Much credit for this year ' s activities goes to President Dunn and Vice-President Musgrave. The latter was unable to finish the year ' s duties as she left in January to enroll at the University of Massachusetts. FIRST ROW: M. Loomis, A. Brown, P. Gilgut, M. Dunn, N. Newell, L. Carey, B.

GRAPHIC With Norman Newell as editor, John Childs as business manager, and Jim Kates as head of special projects, the staff published eight issues of the Graphic this year, reducing the price per copy from fifteen to ten cents. This achievement was no small one as out of the $900 budget, only about sixty per cent is raised through advertising and sales. That means that the other forty per cent must be made from special money raising events. The staff felt, however, that a lower sale ' s price increased the circulation, a valuable feature in ad getting. This year ' s money raising events included the famous Beatnik parties, a feature of which was the original and clever intermission entertainment. One semi-formal was sponsored with the Mood Makers furnishing the music and the Tune Teens contributing to the intermission program. A hard top hop in the student parking lot was sponsored in the spring. In addition to the social events the staff held the refreshment con- cession at basketball games. They also operated a refreshment purchasing agency more as a service to the school, however, than as a money maker since the proceeds were small. Mr. Crouse, able adviser of the Graphic, reported a good year. 33 A.F.S. Organized last year, the American Field Service Club has grown in popularity as its need for existence has become greater. The club ' s chief objective is to raise money for a world student exchange program. Last year three foreign students at- tended ARMS, one under the auspices of the A.F.S. Of the two foreign students here this year, one was sponsored by the A.F.S. This program permits one junior from this school to go abroad for a summer. Last summer Bob Wilson was chosen to go abroad and divided over eight weeks between two German families. This year ' s junior was not yet named when the Gold Bug went to press. Brigitte Kinast, from Salzburg, Austria, lived this year with the Dr. Gage family and attended ARHS as a senior. FRENCH CLUB Social as well as educational, the French Club sponsored a school dance, a visit to New York City, and a ski trip to Bromley. Meetings were called by the president rather than having a scheduled program. Meetings featured people who spoke of France; her art and culture, her people, and her political problems. 35 LITERARY CLUB With Mr. Cox as their adviser the Literary Club met every Wednesday to read and discuss the creative writing of its members. Although small this is a very active and loyal club. Their work in short story, poetry, and essay writing is kept up through club deadlines. Occasionally local writers spoke to the group as help and inspiration. An active correspondence was kept up with last year ' s member, Kreishna Winston, now in Europe. I ' FIRST ROW: M. Loomis, S.

MATH CLUB j The Math Club was newly organized this year by Mr. Eddy and interested students who drew up a constitution and invited all others interested in the subject I to attend. Meetings were held at three week intervals with speakers at each session. I Mr. Fishel, guest speaker at the first meeting, used “Recreational Mathematics " as I his subject. Student speakers included Mark Johnson on " What Are the Chances? " , ' Jerry Warner on “Geometric Series, " and Dorothy Lapinski on “Operation Abacus. " Questions and discussion followed each presentation. Because of the large number of juniors in the club there should be continued I interest next year. I I 36 PEP CLUB The annual Booster Day weekend this year was one of the highlights of the football season due to the work of the Pep Club, the liveliest organization at ARHS. The club with the help of its adviser. Miss Lawson, planned the float parade, the rally, and the bon fire. They also sponsored the informal sock hop on Friday evening before the Saturday game with Ware and the Saturday night hop following the game. They solicited ads for programs and sold tags to make this event one of the biggest of the season. This club was responsible for chartering buses to carry members and a root- ing section to all away games. .Members sold refreshments at all home games and used proceeds to help finance the bus trips, thus lowering the cost for the people traveling to games by bus. They sold Amherst buttons, banners, and beanies, all of which added to the enthusiasm and good sportsmanship at all games. 37 FIRST ROW: S. Carey, Miss Chickering, P. Hanson, E. Goodrich, G. Weir, E.

THESPIANS Thespian troupe 1 333 spent the fall semester revising the troupe constitution and replacing and bringing up to date the experience profiles of its members. Spring productions included an Evening of Drama and a three-act play. Troupe 1333 belongs to the National Thespian Society which is a nationwide honorary dramatic group. Its members are chosen from among those students who have exhibited considerable scholastic potential as well as outstanding talents in the field of dra- matics. To gain membership in the troupe a person must have participated in the production of at least one three-act play or three one-act plays in addition to having ac- cumulated ten of the points awarded in all phases of dramatic production. Additional points are recorded toward further recognition of merit. 39 FIRST ROW: S. Stowell, M. Loomis, J. E. Moore, M. A. Post, N. Carpenter, N. Newell, R. Fishel, E. Goodrich. SECOND ROW: J.

FUTURE TEACHERS CLUB This year ' s Future Teachers Club organized in early December with officers elected and plans made for the year. They began the year ' s activities with a trip to State Teachers College in Framingham. During the year members visited classes in some of the local grade schools and in the junior high school. A panel of local teachers met with the club at which time members were able to have their questions discussed and answered. AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS CLUB One of the busiest clubs in school, the Audio- Visual, trained and men- tored by Mr. Oldershaw, ran films, tape recorders, and recordings at the re- quest of teachers and clubs. They were responsible for assembly lighting and sound, and members aided dramatic groups as stage technicians for their produc- tions. Mr. Oldershaw took his boys on a trip to a tele- vision station in Springfield. 40 ROD AND GUN CLUB The Rod and Gun Club, organized some years ago, gains popularity each year. Among the field trips made, this year ' s most popular trip was the one to Leverett Pond to fish through the ice. I FIRST ROW: C. LaBonte, D. Kaminski, Mr. Moore, W. Knightly, D. Ashley.

The club was changed from one which was strictly for those, interested in nursing to one which included the whole field of technical jobs and therapy. A trip to Burbank Hospital in Fitchburg in the fall, a discussion group meeting in December, and a trip to Cooley Dickinson Hospital, Northampton, in the spring formed most of the action for the club year.

LEADERS CLUB The Leaders Club, organized to assist gym teachers, includes both juniors and seniors. These people are particularly helpful in orga nizing large classes in gym- nastics and calisthenics. The Club put on two dances this year to raise money for uniforms. TRI-S Tri-S, the school ' s largest and busiest organization began its year ' s program of activities with the initiation of freshmen in September. The day of initiation closed with the traditional banquet for all members. At Thanksgiving time the club collected food and through the Welfare Department distributed baskets to needy families. Christmas vacation witnessed the year ' s first formal, Bal d ' Hiver, a very memorable event. Finally, to climax the winter season, the club members held a tobogganning party at a local hill and enjoyed a brisk evening of fun and excitement, warmed by hot cocoa and a fire. Late ir the year the club sponsored a clothing drive. This drive repeated the success of the previous year ' s drive, which, in May of 1959, merited a placque from the Good Will Industries in recognition of the three tons of clothing collected at that time Other activities of the year included swimming and bowling meets at the University and a guest beauty consultant at one of the spring meetings.

Under the competent direction of Dr. J. Clement Schuler, it made its first appearances at all the home football games. In October it led the annual Halloween Parade in North Amherst, and then led the annual Booster Day Parade for the game against Ware. Also during this month, the group took part in Amherst ' s five hour Bicentennial Parade. When the December holidays arrived, the Band played seasonal music at the school as- sembly, which music was then recorded on tape and played on the WHMP radio station Christmas day. During the spring it made several more appearances: one at the Annual Spring Concert, another at the PTA concert, and one at the Amherst Community Fair. Dr. Schuler took the Band to the Tri-State Festival. Next year ' s Band will miss the ' 60 Graduates: Carolyn Snape, Betsy Crossman, James Hardy, Judy E. Moore, Betty Jane Waskiewicz, George Richason, Herbert Wilkinson, Robert Wilson, and Stephen Smith. 44 ARHS PEP BAND This year ' s Pep Band has been a strong and spirited organization under the direction of Rushworth Kidder, ' 61. As well as being strictly student-run, all of the members are volunteers. School spirit was greatly stimulated and supported by this group at all home sports events. Practicing once a week on Thursday, the Pep Band, along with making a fine sound, looked attractive and added tremendously to the basketball season in particular. The band ' s repertoire consists of spirited, popular music, chosen by the leader with the consent of the members. The student director of the band automatic- ally becomes leader of the Pep Band. Aside from its appearance at all home games and some of the away from home games, the Pep Band appeared on TV early this spring as part of the publicity for the Small Schools Tournament at the University of Massachusetts. 45 FIRST ROW: D.

BRASS CHOIR This year ' s Brass Choir, composed of ten members, made its first appearance during the holiday season for the Christmas School Assembly at which it led the entire student body and faculty in carol singing. They also led the caroling on the South Amherst Common December 1 8. The day before Christmas, they played for the Rotary Club and led the carol singing there, too. Later on in the year, the Brass Choir played at the Sunrise Service in Pelham on Easter Sunday. They also made plans to enter competition in one of the music festivals. TUNE TEENS Originating in ninth grade, the Tune Teens have come a long way. Their first assignments were singing for small local organizations. In no time at all their popularity had spread into other Massa- chusetts communities and their engagements became numerous. At first they sang only three-part, group-ar- ranged popular songs. In time they added more parts and in- cluded modern numbers in their repertoire. At the begin- ning of this year, their senior year, the girls made a record, climaxing their career as a vocal group. Since the girls are going to separate colleges, next fall will mark the end of this quartet. Perhaps their success will prove an incen- tive to other small high school groups. 46 J. Wick, B.

CHORUS This year the chorus with its increased membership started the season with the presentation of an Alma Mater, written by Barbara Moore, class of ' 59. This original piece of music was presented at one of the first school assemblies for the student body ' s approval. Later on for the Christmas assembly, the chorus sang several numbers appropriate for the occasion. Along with the band ' s numbers, the chorus ' pieces were also recorded on tape and then played Christmas day on the WHMP radio station. On the day before Christmas, the chorus entertained the Rotary Club at the Lord Jeffrey Inn by singing several seasonal selections. Also included in the pro- gram for the year were appearances in the Annual Spring Concert, another appearance at the Rotary Club at Easter, and finally one at high school graduation. 47 1962 The freshman class has made the most of its first year at ARHS. Even before class elections were held, plans were in the making for many money-raising projects. The first of these projects, Slave Day, was carried out in the November rains; however, with experience to its credit, the class sponsored a second and more successful Slave Day in the spring. In October the class added a great deal of spirit to the Booster Day Parade with its show of originality. Also during the year they held several dances, one being the well-remembered Horoscope Hop. Already the freshman class is mak- ing plans for its Junior Class Play, which should be very successful, if early planning and enthusiasm mean anything. Members of the Class of ' 62 have made a name for themselves in both boys ' and girls ' sports activities and in the other departments of extracurricular life. Fine leadership and general class cooperation are outstanding characteristics of this group. The under-16 parking lot. Using the thenne " Have Team Will Win, " a take-off on the famous " Have Gun Will Travel " tele- vision show, the ' 61 ' ers entered the Booster Day Parade in October and won first prize with their float. With this auspicious beginning they swung into action. Two sock hops followed, and in November they conducted the traditional Junior Class Cake Sale with both gastronomic and finan- cial success. Members made names for themselves and for their class in all the major sports and in music, dramatics, the Graphic, and social and service clubs. Juniors ranked high in numbers on the Honor Roll and should make Pro Merito an impressive organization next year. Spring activities in- volved— among other money-making schemes— a big paper drive. Much time and thought was spent by committees in preparation for the annual Senior Ball, the big social event sponsored each June by the juniors. 1961 E. Kenseth, secretary; P.

Its skill in organization has been tried and proven in countless ways, for example, in the successful Junior Class paper drive and in the much-worked-on 1959 " Fantasy " prom. Even more, the class has proven its ability to work well with others, contributing significantly to the " ' 58 Skiddo, " " The Boy Friend, " and to such school traditions as Booster Day and the Community Fair. Always monetary-minded, the class displayed its talent for building and main- taining a substantial treasury early in high school in such financial successes as Freshman Slave Day, Junior Class Cake Sale, Junior Class play, and numerous other food sales and paper drives. During its three years, its members contributed to such sports triumphs as winning the 1958 Western Mass. Small Schools Tourna- ment, becoming Hampshire League champs in baseball both in ' 58 and ' 59 and in basketball in ' 59, and remaining undefeated in its senior football year. Thus, upon its graduation on June 24, the Class of ' 60 completed three memorable years at ARHS, leaving behing a trail of triumphs and successes. N. Houston, secretary; J. E.
