PERRY Principal Harvard, B.S., Harvard, LL.B., Harvard Graduate School of Education, M.Ed. As members of the graduating class you leave Amherst Regional High School with the best wishes and blessings of the staff who have done their utmost to insure you of a superior high school education, yet you must remember that it is within your power alone to make the most of it. In times as uncertain as ours seem to he at present, it behooves each graduate to exert his rights of citizenship and education to the fullest to obtain for himself, for his country, and for the world, the personal satisfactions, peace, and stability that harmonious endeavor can bring. Then you may say with a clear conscience, “I have done my best — I have done my part.” Mr. Domina ROBERT DOMINA — Guidance Counselor: Keene Teachers’ College, B.Ed.; University of Massachu- setts.

CLASS OF 63 The Freshman year of the class of 1963 was the class’ first opportunity to unite and direct their efforts toward a definite goal. This goal, obtaining money to be used for expenses in the Junior and Senior years, was achieved with great success through various projects which included several dances, a slave day in the fall and spring, a food sale, and a car wash. The success of these projects was due largely to the enthusiasm and hard work of all the class members. 18 Left to Right : Marilyn Aldrich, Mr. Eddy, David Smith, Andrew Horton, Kenneth Brown. CLASS OF ’62 The Junior Class during the year has played an active role in high school activities. Led by its president, Andrew Horton, vice-president, Ken Brown, treasurer, Dave Smith, and secretary, Merrilyn Aldrich, it has successfully carried out many money-making projects. Among these projects were a bean supper, an original idea from the class, the annual cake sale, and the Junior Class Play, which had record sales. The class planned many more projects for the year, including a paper drive during February vacation, a talent show, and a car wash. 19 FRONT ROW: Madeline Corey, Frances Dziuba, Elaine Campbell, Patricia Childs, Susan Barton, Dorothy Crowley, Judith Adair.

Library, Amherst, MA SENIOR CLASS From Wednesday, September 4, through June 23, the class of ’61 made innumer- able accomplishments as a class and as individual class members. Their years were marked by successes in slave day and sock-hops. Their booster day floats won second, first, and third prizes consecutively, and their fair bocrths brought in record sums. The cake auction and The Loud Red Patrick as well as paper drives and the senior prom. Sayonara, punctuated their junior year. The senior year proved the busiest since they started off with the Booster Week- end sponsorship. From there they sponsored sock-hops and a pre-Christmas bake sale. The basketball season provided after-basketball dances and the refreshment booth for senior work and profit. A novel idea of a dance for parents was put into action in March with ’61’ers as chaperones. June 1961 w r as the busiest month, with preparations for graduation week and for the future. The final week was marked by the senior assembly, finals, class night, picnic, graduation, all-night party, and the senior prom, all which required months of planning. Again a class leaves ARHS with many pleasant memories of studies, athletics and other extracurricular activities, all adding up to a firm foundation for a prosperous future. Left to Ri”Iit: R.

FOOTBALL Well balanced skill in both offense and defense best describes this year’s football team. A good passing attack plus fast and powerful backs combined in scoring 194 points. A strong line and good pass defense held the opposition to only 78 points. An impressive 4-3-1 record is evidence of the Hurricanes’ strength under their new head coach. Mr. Abramson.

Backed by a strong team, the pitchers in compiling an outstanding 14-3 record copped the Hampshire League crown and went on to the Western Mass. Tourney in Holyoke. The tournament game was a hard fought pitching dual ending in a 1-0 defeat for Amherst. The overall season, however, was marked by brighter days including 5 shutouts pitched by Cliff Allen. OPP. AM.

The team record of 3 wins, 3 losses. 2 second places and a third place in triangular meets was especially good considering the loss of several experienced track men of the past season. Bill Basara. who holds the new school half mile record of 2 minutes and 7 seconds, scored consistently. Steve Burke in the quarter mile, Glenn Goodnow in the mile, and Dennis Patnaude, in the dashes and weight events were also consistent scorers. The Western Mass, championships saw Bill Basara place second in the half mile and Glenn Goodnow first in the novice mile.

Rita Kamensky, Elaine Kenseth, and. Margie Lilly led the scorers, while fine junior guards put up a commendable defense against over- whelming odds. The team never seemed to work up to its potential but they managed to score 210 points.

VARSITY CHEERLEADERS The Cheerleaders were very active in encouraging school spirit at athletic contests. Besides their regular performances at all football and basketball games, they sponsored a double header basketball event to raise money for cheerleading outfits and other expenses that arose during the cheerleading season. The double header included Varsity Cheerleaders versus the girls’ Varsity Basketball Team and faculty men versus Alumni with the women teachers acting as cheerleaders. In March, the Small Schools Tournament offered the girls a chance to show off the well-rehearsed routines before a large audience 66 STANDING: L. Thayer, E. Blasko, S. Barton, B. Ennis. KNEELING: P. Childs, S. Smith, B. Heath. The Junior Varsity Cheerleaders added much to raising the morale of the players and encouraging enthusiasm from the spectators with their own cheers and their work with the varsity squad. S. Teichner and P. Hendrickson The newly organized boy cheerleaders set a new tradition for the school. They sup- plemented both of the regular cheerleading squads with acrobatic stunts and sideline cheers. The boys even made up some new cheers. It is hoped that this boys’ squad will become a larger organization in future years. 67 FIRST ROW: S. Stowell, G. Jones, R. Snape. SECOND ROW: E. March, M. Periello, J. Matusko, M. Sayer.

Their Party-Dance was one of the most popular events of the year. The new idea of having games at a dance was a big attraction. The Council members responded to student suggestions by means of their Thursday morning reports. Clarification of smoking rules and the addition of new mirrors in the locker rooms were two responses to student sugges- tions. The annual Student Council movie, this year “Blackboard Jungle” was shown on April 3rd. 68 FIRST ROW: K. Winston, M. Basile, V. Ward, P. Hendrickson, E. Cramer, S. Spakowski, Miss Donley.

Pro Merito supplied ushers for the first P.T.A. meeting and has continually offered its services to school groups. The college assembly in December featured freshmen from all over the country. They described their experiences during the first six months of College life. The annual Pro Merito assembly and honor roll party were also highlights of the honor society’s year. 69 FRONT ROW: E.
