The Senior Class of AMHERST REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL presents THE 1962 GOLD BUG Amherst, Massachusetts To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. ECCLESIASTES III-1-8 The class of ' 62 dedicates this " Gold Bug " to AAR. HOLLIS W. AAOORE who has put in much of his own time to make our school a better place. He develops in his students appreciation for good design, respect for materials, and quality craftsmanship. His willingness to work and to help people has given all of us standards and ideals towards which to work. 4 The death of Mr. Perry saddened all of us. He was our principal for the last twenty years. During that time our school has grown in size and stature. The impact of Mr. Perry on edu- cation in Amherst will be sustained in the future by the scholar- ship established in his name. Mr. Thayer A. Greene, pastor of the First Congregational Church, described the sort of man Mr. Perry was when, in a prayer offered at the funeral, he said: " We remember with gratitude and apprecia- tion many of the qualities which made him a unique person: a keen mind alive to ideas, a mind eager to read, to know, to explore; a love of art and the theater where much of the feeling locked up within his soul could find expression; his talents as a teach- er; his impulsive generosity; his years of service to this community. For all the creative qualities of his life we give thee thanks and praise thy name.” Time is one ' s best friend, teaching best of all the wisdom of silence. -A. B. ALCOTT 7 MISS ELEANOR C.

Smith, P. Perhonis, Mr. A. Eddy, B. Snape, A. Horton. The Class of 1962 has left a long and enviable record behind it at A.R.H.S. The class has always been a leader in Booster Day activities and in other school functions as well as in regular class activities. Two successful slave days, one of the best paper drives to be held and the fine production of " Ten Little Indians " as Junior Class Play were some activities undertaken. Some new ideas as well were tried with great success, such as the Bean and Spaghetti Suppers, a Hay Ride, an Antique Auction, and " Car Smashing " for a fair booth. The Senior Prom run by the Class of ' 62 has been acknowledged as the best within memory. A long slate of graduation activities, including a class picnic, senior prom, and a class party, closed out the senior year. 18 Joy Beryle Adams Merrilyn V.

Perriello, S. Merzbach, M. Wilson, Mr. P. Caouette. The Class of 1963 has done a good job working together to increase their treasury this year. Not only have they worked hard on such tradi- tional projects as the Paper Drive, Junior Class Play, and the Cake Sale but they also have scheduled a movie showing, and sold birthday cal- endars. Not all their effort is concentrated on money making schemes for they have fun at Class functions. 44 FIRST ROW: Dolce Alviani, Dorothy Crowley, Judith Adair, Celia Atkins, Donna Erwin, Lydia Ball, Vanna Cuddeback, Madeline Corey, Margaret Brown, Susan Austin.

Under dedicated and capable leadership, the freshman class of 1964 has accomplished much during its first year at ARMS. It has already sponsored two dances and will have more scheduled for the spring. Among other of its activities completed this year was the bottle drive, which was held in October. A preview into the future plans of the freshman class reveals much activity for the forthcoming spring months. Among these activities are the car wash and a slave day. Although no definite goal has been slated for the money of the fresh- man class, the yearbook has been its most probable prospect. With continued high enthusiasm this class can look forward to the rewarding years to come at ARMS. 47 FIRST ROW: June Baldwin, Marguerite Basara, Judy Baldwin, Shirley Britt, Nancy Crowley, Diana Capen, Diana Battistoni, Eileen Cembalisty, Josephine Fitts, Carol Beturney.

Football The 1961 football season at Amherst Regional High proved to be a satisfying experience for both the coaching staff and the team. Rated as one of the teams to beat in the Intercounty League, the ' Canes played good ball all season and finished in second place. Steve Warren, the A-bomb of the gridiron, led all scores with 82 points. Vic Zumbruski, quarter- back, ably guided the team to six victories and two big defeats. The big game of the year was, as always, with Ware. The ' Canes showed both their superior ability and spirit as they defeated the Indians, 26-0. In the Booster Day game the ' Canes tangled with the Senators from Mahar. Once again the Amherst team was in complete control, 30-12. The two losses of the season came at the hands of Turners Falls, 15-6, and Arms Academy, 14-6. It was a year where both offense and defense were stressed by the coaching staff.

The Amherst Regional basketball team had its first losing season in many a year, compiling a 6-8 record in Hampshire League play for 5th place, and an overall record of 7 wins, 12 losses. Under new coach Doug Crutchfield, the Hurri- canes faced a rebuilding year. With Don Southwick the only returning starter from last year ' s team. The Hurricanes lacked experience and depth, which directly affected the outcome of some close games. Amherst lost four of the five independent games prior to League play. After losing to Northampton and Athol, Amherst trounced East Longmeadow 74-40. In the Christmas Tournament at Turners Falls, the ' Canes lost to Hopkins 53-51 and South Hadley 61-58. The Hurricanes then ran up 3 consecutive victories, beating Frontier, St. AAikes and Pioneer, before dropping another close encounter to Smith Academy 47-44. After beating Arms, the ' Canes hit a low ebb, losing four straight to Hopkins, South Hadley, Frontier and St. Mikes. In the final three games, the Hurricanes beat Pioneer and Arms while losing to Smith Academy. St. Mikes 72 Amherst 53; Pioneer 21 Amherst 52; Smith Academy 63 Am- herst 55 Amherst displayed good scoring balance, as senior Vic Zumbruski paced the team with a 1 1 .8 average followed by Southwick 1 1 .2, Thornton 11.1, Joy 8.2, and Bohdnaw 8.2. Alan Jacque, Steve Rozwenc and seniors Ralph Newport and Bob Hull gave good bench support to the starting five. Despite Amherst ' s poor showing this year, things definitely look better for next year. With four starters returning the Hurricanes are bound to be in the thick of the Hamshire League race.

The Amherst Regional Junior Varsity team finished its season with a winning record of 7 wins, 6 losses. The little Hurricanes found the going rough at the start of the season, losing four of the first five games. In the remaining 8 games, however, the J.V. ' s posted a 6 and 2 record under coach Timothy Regan. The Amherst Junior five beat Smith Academy and Arms before losing to Hopkins 56-40. After squeaking by Frontier 44-43, the little ' Canes lost to a fine team from St. Mikes 52-38. However, the J.V. ' s went on to win its remaining three games, beating Pioneer, Smith and Arms. The personal efforts of Paul Robison, Don Nelson, Steve Snow and John Barton led the J.V. ' s in their winning record and should help the varsity next year. J.V.

Last year ' s Amherst Regional Baseball team compiled an outstanding 12-2 record behind the pitching of Jim Hurston, and Tom Thornton, the hitting of Tony Waskiewicz, Larry Briggs and Chuck O ' Rourke and superb defensive. This year Coach Abramson will build his team around Tom Thornton, Vic Zum- bruski and Alan Jaque. With the development of a strong infield and a good outfield, the Hurricanes should be in condition for their third Hampshire League Championship. The team should face strong opposition from St. Mike ' s, Arms and Frontier. The ' Canes are expecting another fine season this year.

The 1961 track season was highlighted by strong Amherst showings against larger schools and by the establishment of three new school records. In dual meet competition, Coach Kenneth Caouette ' s Hurricanes posted 2 win— 1 loss record, while they placed second in one and third in two triangular (three-way) meets. Five Amherst boys also partici- pated in the Western Massachusetts High School Track Meet. The 1961 Amherst track team was the first team from outside Franklin County to take part in the Franklin County meet. Tom Atherton was the big student during the 1961 season. Besides being Amherst ' s high scorer, Tom set school marks of 10.2 seconds on the 100 yard dash and 22.1 seconds on the 220. Atherton also excelled at the broad jump with leaps of over 20 feet. Another second-breaking performance was that of Bill Basara in the half mile run. Bill broke the school record (which he had set in 1960) by 2.2 seconds with a time of 2 minutes and 4.8 seconds. Other consistently high scoring came from Art Dimock on the hurdles, Dave Wright in the high jump. Gene Wagner with the shot put and discus throw, and Joe Doktor in the javelin throw.

The 1961 Hurricane Cross Country team swept through its five meets with an undefeated season. Capably coached by Mr. Kenneth Caouette and Mr. Timothy Regan, the experienced Amherst Harriers beat all opponents without apparent difficulty. There are relatively few schools in the Amherst area that support a Cross Country team, and there- fore, the number of opponents available to the Am- herst squad is restricted. Minnechaug Regional of Wilbraham and Williamsburg High School take a great pride in their Cross Country squads. Yet, their pride was vanquished when they encountered the mighty Amherst men. Freshman Myron Robinson led the Amherst run- ners in each meet of the season. With the return of Myron and several other lettermen there are good prospects for an equally successful team next fall.

Once again ARMS girls participated actively in sports this year. Beginning early in December, they practiced— despite certain adverse conditions from the other side— in preparation for their season that runs between Christmas and February vacations. There were nine games in all with five different schools— Greenfield, Williamsburg, Frontier, Northampton, and Pioneer. From these schools many levels of team quality were encountered— ranging from those less superior to those more superior to our girls— so they had a taste of all types of skills. Even though our victories were not so numerous as might be desired, it is well testified by our sore throats and spirited varsity cheerleaders that our team spirit, at least, was not lacking.

As usual Miss Lawson and the more experienced Varsity mem- bers had the toil and fun again this year of breaking in the new Junior Varsity. After hours of afternoon drilling, shouting, shoot- ing, and skinned knees, the J.V. players were ready to go out and meet their challengers from surrounding schools, and just as their predecessors had done, the new team found growing confidence and improvement with the experience and fun they had had. 61 Softball FIRST ROW: Anita Jaque, Sue Joy, Mary Jane Niedeck, Sally Bruce, Susan Merzbach.

Almost every day one could see the girls out in the field, practicing diligently to improve their game. As in several other sports, the team challenged neighboring schools, and again met varying levels of competition —some above and some below. This year, too, the girls plan to start spring training, along with the Yankees. 62 Varsity Cheerleaders Stephen Teichner, Carol Vendette, David Wright, Gail Kauffman, Karen Guyott, Sandra Smith, Barbara Ennis, Betsy Heath, Priscilla Cook. One of the hardest working and most active groups in the high school is the Cheerleaders. Constant practice and being on the job at sports events keeps them active during the school year. The Cheerleaders have continued to encourage school spirit and give support to the team members at all games. " Close the door! " " A-M-H-E-R-S-T, Amherst High School, yessir-ee!

The Junior Varsity Cheerleaders have also added greatly to encourag- ing the enthusiasm of the spectators. They have also helped to raise the morale of the players. They have especially encouraged the junior varsity players and at the same time worked along side of the varsity cheer- leaders in order to build up team spirit at the games. " Victory, " that ' s our cry! 65 Student Council Amherst Regional High ' s Student Council continued to function this year as an example of organized student government. Under the guidance of its advisor, Mr. Crouse, the Council succeeded in conducting a home survey concerning student smoking privileges, an extremely successful dance-party, and a very popular new attraction, the " no-talent-show. " Besides these new activities the Student Council members continued in their role of monitoring the hall during lunch and enforcing all previously established school rules. The Council ' s officers for the past year were Arthur Dimock, president, Raymond Gozzi, vice president, Beverly Snape, secretary, and Gertrude Jones, treasurer.

The Graphic has been one of the most active of the school ' s extra- curricular activities. As well as providing the students with accurate and enter- taining coverage of school news, The Graphic has rendered a number of addi- tional services to the ARMS student body, including the Booster Day rally, the sale of programs at home football games, the arrangement of the appearance of an Amherst team on a local television program, the solicitation of donations for the Reggie Campbell Fund and several dances. The Graphic has complemented its colorful coverage of school events with quality humor, a special column on Danish life by the American Field Service exchange student Ims Svendsen, and outstanding editorials. Mr. Cox helped to lead Peter Oliver as editor-in-chief, Julie Lovins as business manager, and Mary Norton, Heather Bastow, Amory Lovins, Stephen Mar x, and Phoebe Williams as assistant editors, in making The Graphic a lively newspaper. Operating on an annual budget of approximately $900, the thirty members of The Graphic staff have taken the initiative and responsibility of giving Amherst Regional High a fine newspaper. On a number of occasions. The Graphic has been recognized on the state and national levels for its general excellence. Since this year ' s staff has been composed chiefly of underclassmen, the prospects are good for an equally dynamic Graphic in the future.
