PAUL R. LANGLOIS University of Maine, B.A.; Springfield College, M.Ed. It has been a pleasure to know and to work with the members of the Class of 1963. Although my participation as a freshman among a group of experienced seniors has been somewhat limited, I shall cherish the many acquaintances I have been able to make. Continue to be friendly, to keep your hopes and a spirations high, and to attack whatever you do in the future with your present degree of enthusiasm and zeal. b IN MEMORIAM MRS.

STANDING: Mr. Paul Caouette, Mrs. Kownslar. The Class of 1963 has shared immeasurable success in its endeavors at Amherst Regional High School. Ambition and enthusiasm permeated all acti- vities both of a pecuniary and of a solely entertaining nature. Through traditional projects including a slave day, two paper drives, and a spaghetti supper plus original schemes as a car wash and a Community Calendar, the class can boast of having had one of the largest treas- uries in the histor)- of ARHS. An excellent production of Mrs. MacThing as the Junior Class Play and a memorable Senior Prom were given. Several traditions were cast aside our senior year as the Senior Prom was held in May and the class graduated a w ' eek before the underclassmen’s final exams. Traditionally, however, the class night, picnic, and all-night party brought the year to a close. 16 JUDITH ADAIR College Judy Gold Bug; Tri-S 1, 2, 3; Chemistry Club 3 " Looks like an angel, acts like one too, but you can never tell what an angel might do.’’ SUSAN ALLEN Secretarial Work Sues Cheerleading 1; Pep Club 1; Tri-S 1, 2, 3 " A friend is a person who knows all about you — and still likes you.” Susan Allen DOLCE ALVIANI Nursing School Dolce Band 1; Orchestra 1; Thespians 1, 2, 3; Tri-S 1, 2, 3; Cheerleading 3 " Adorn’d with features, virtues, wit and grace.” SIGRUN ANDENAES College Sigrun Basketball; Science Club; Student Council; Tri-S; A.F.S.

The Class of 1964 has initiated and participated in many activities at ARHS, providing class members with the opportunity to participate in enjoyable and rewarding activities and earning money for the class treasury. The class succeeded in both areas. It started the year by winning first prize for the best float in the Booster Day Parade. In November, a great financial boost was given to the class treasury with the annual cake sale. Next was the Class Night, an event in which the class of ’64 were the pioneers. Not only was the Class Night a success, but it also encouraged the payment of class dues. By popular demand, another Class Night was held later in the year. In January, the class sponsored a dance and, with the arrival of spring, held the annual paper drive. Finally, the class ended the year by sponsoring the biggest social event of the year, the Senior Prom. 42 S. Allen R. Allis G. Avery J. Backe J. Baldwin J. Baldwin M. Basara R. Basara D.

The Class of ’65 began as freshmen to unite in planning a happy and busy high school career. In November, the class entered a float in the Booster Day parade, and in December it held a full-day class party with sledding, skating, games, and dancing. In January and February, the class gave several well-attended sock hops and in March sponsored the St. Patrick’s Dance which featured the Twilighters. From September through June, the class of ’65 made outstanding achieve- ments as individuals. Many class members participated in Field Day, as well as adding to the school’s record in sports. Through these activities, the class showed much promise in its ability to build up a firm foundation for success in the remaining high school years. 46 E. Adair A. Agard D. Aldrich G. Aldrich D.

With only three returning starters (Tom Thornton, Alan Jacque and Vic Zumbruski), Coach Charles Abramson had a tough rebuilding job. The team compiled a good 11-6 record behind the pitches of Bill Russell (6-2) and Tom Thornton (5-4) and the strong hitting of Alan Jacque and Vic Zumbruski. A play-off game, in which Amherst defeated Pioneer Regional 5-1, was necessary to decide the Hampshire League champs. The ’Canes are looking forward to another fine season in 1963. With many of last year’s starters returning. Coach Abramson expects a good team.

Their overall record was 7-12 with a tie with St. Michael’s at a pre-season jamboree in South Hadley. Despite the poor showing this year, the team has great promise.

Mr. Robinson coached practices held at Thunder Mountain. In the races attended, our skiers placed in the top 50 c consistently. It is hoped that next year the ski team will have a better season. B.

The 1962 Softball team was outstanding in its teamwork and offered its opponents stiff competition. Helping the team to victory five times was the accurate pitching of Barbara Crossman, Carol Linnell, and Linda Frost, and the capable catching of Patricia Shumway and the powerful batting of Rita Kamensky, Natalie Varley, and Patricia Shum- way. They averaged 15 points per game to their opponents’ 13 points.

Everybody — the tall, the short, the thin, and the rest of us got a chance to hit the ball — hopefully, in the court and hope- fully, out of the net. Our Maroon and White teams were evenly ' matched but proved superior in meets with Pioneer and Turners Falls as our girls really set them up. In formal competition two teams from each school play two games each with two opposing teams. As a result the winning school is determined by how many of the four games the school wins. 66 FIRST ROW: Seaver, Roberts, Searle, Murphy, Jacque, Neylon.

Perhaps the foulshot percentage wasn’t much to talk about, but forwards Gert Jones, and Bev Smith, and guards Jo Matusko, Sue Markert, and Margie Brown are. The team and Miss Lawson felt all practices had been worthwhile when Amherst defeated Williamsburg, a team which had been undefeated for 3 years. 68 SCORES ADVERSARIES AMHERST Frontier 49 17 Hopkins 23 37 Frontier 39 5 Williamsburg 25 15 Greenfield 16 20 St. Michael’s 25 29 Pioneer 27 28 Williamsburg .. 19 21 1 lopkins 22 50 Pioneer 19 29 St. Michael’s 13 35 Hurry up, Mr. Oldershaw!

VARSITY CHEERLEADERS With their enthusiasm, new uniforms, and clever routines, the cheer- leaders aroused much school spirit at the athletic games this year. Proof of this is that more people than ever attended the football games this year. They cheered at all home and away games, and because they had taught the school song and many of the cheers at pep rallies, many of the spectators joined in cheering on the teams. 70 STANDING: Kathy Lashway, Sharon Nanartonis, Barbara Koester.

STUDENT COUNCIL Amherst Regional High’s Student Council spent a very active and success- ful year under the leadership of Mr. Crouse, advisor, and officers Susan Neet, president, Robert Livingston, vice president, Mary Jane Moreau, secretary, and Robin Bleckwehl, treasurer. The Student Council undertook such projects as the " No Talent Show,” the Winter Party held in February, the annual movie, and the popular Spring Field Day. The members continued to act as corridor patrols at lunch time, and the Council continued to function as an example of organized Student govern- ment to which students could look for leadership. 72 FIRST ROW; C.

The Council is composed of representatives of each organization usually chosen by the club members.

The purpose of the American Field Sertdce Club, more commonly re- ferred to as the A.F.S., is to help promote friendship and mutual under- standing among the countries of the world. This year, this purpose was truly fulfilled. Sigrun Andenaes came to A.R.H.S. from Norway and lived with Marilyn Wilson’s family. Last summer Carol Linnell went to Japan, and following her visit, Carol’s " sister,” Tomoko Sueno, came to visit her and attended A.R.H.S. classes regularly for about two months. In December, the A.F.S. club had a very successful " Books for Africa” drive. Later in the year, s everal foreign visitors came to talk with the club about their respective countries. Mr. Ames served as advisor for A.F.S. and Carol Linnell was president. 75 GRAPHIC Under the direction of Miss Morin, advisor, and Mary Norton and Heather Bastow, co-editors, the Graphic staff published eight issues. Julie Lovins supervised the business staff and solicited the necessary local advertising. To increase circulation, the Graphic sponsored two contests featuring prizes donated by local merchants. In January the organization underwent slight revision, and new reporters revitalized the staff considerably. Along with its regular coverage were featured exam schedules, a cut-out basketball and baseball schedule, and a column by Sigrun Andanaes, A.F.S. student from Norway. FIRST ROW: S. Nanartonis, P.
