Library, Amherst, MA GOLDBUG The Class of 1966 gratefully dedicates this edition of the Goldbug to its advisers, Mrs. Marjorie Day and Mr. William Ames. For three years these advisers have helped direct our class to work together for definite goals. In so doing they showed confidence in our class and allowed it to move as a body guided by the will of the majority. For this we thank them— for helping us to develop into a senior class that could utilize the efforts of all to get the best results, as was illustrated by the success of many class activities. During our Junior year our class held a paper drive, sponsored the traditional cake sale, and hosted the Senior Prom. As a senior class we were so successful with our Booster Day float and skit that we won first prize in both. Besides devoting many hours to these class projects, Mrs. Day and Mr. Ames have been active in numerous other functions in our school. Mrs. Day was greatly ap- preciated for her enthusiastic backing of Pep Club and Ski Club. Mr. Ames has spent several years advising AFS Club projects. Both teachers held roles in the faculty play. Gold In the Hills, which was produced to raise money for a scholarship fund. Because of their active interest in Amherst Regional High School, Mrs. Day and Mr. Ames will be well re- membered by the Class of 1966. Mr. William Ames uses visual aids to increase student appreciation of history. ;renCE The 1 966 Goldbug attempts to present the many faces of the A.R.H.S. experience. We have tried to capture for you the fun, the learning, and the friends of the past year. As we wrote the yearbook, we realized how many parts of A.R.H.S. have been important to us— the administration and faculty, classmates, teams and activities, proms, ass ' emblies and plays. You will find that this yearbook does not con- form with books of previous years. We have tried to make it different. As fads a nd styles change, so must our yearbook. We, the Goldbug staff of 1966, hope you, the student body, will enjoy the finished product as much as we have enjoyed publishing it. Progress of the Individual AAR.

Formed to promote closer relationships and better understanding between faculty and stu- dents, the Student Council has served to investi- gate student problems and present programs of interest to the student body. As it is the only truly representative group, the council has the responsibility of proposing new rules to the administration. With the assistance of the advisor, Mr. Paul Caouette, the Council began early in the year to prepare a variety of programs for the school. Thomas Rice was elected President, and was sup- ported by Philip Torrey, Vice-President, Anne Moreau, Secretary, and Elizabeth Cuddeback, Treasurer. The Council sponsored two dances and a Christmas Decoration Contest between the four classes. The No-Talent Show was presented in February by the Council, followed by Field Day, which took place in May. The Student Council continued to sponsor two drink machines for student use. Throughout the year, the Council acted on the many proposals referred to it by home room representatives or collected from the Suggestion Box. By continuing to act as the official repre- sentative of the Amherst Regional student body, the Student Council has proven to be a valuable organization. The annual No-Talent Show, presented In February was a council-sponsored Variety of Programs. At Christmas time, the Student Council initiated an interclass Decoration Contest.

Pep Club, the spirit-rousing organization for students, has completed another excellent year. Mrs. Marjorie Day advised the club A hile of- ficers— Deborah Glazier, President; Gretchen He- bert, Vice-President; Mary Ann Schwartz, Secre- tary; and Steve Simmons, Treasurer— headed up the many activities. These activities involved spon- soring rallies and dances, selling programs and shakers at football games, and providing trans- portation to away games, both football and bas- ketball. One of their major projects of the year was organizing Booster Day. Prizes for the best float and best skit went to the Seniors. Through its participation in numerous activities the Pep Club has done an admirable job of promoting both enthusiasm and good sportsmanship. Pep Club met frequently to discuss plans. Clubs Serve Both School and( The court at the Tri-S Club Dinner Dance included: Anne Moreau, Karen Zwinakis, Nancy Fabian, queen, Elizabeth Langland, Bonnie Bragg, and Colleen McGuirk. Throughout the year Amherst Regional ' s Tri-S Club served both the town and the school with a variety of programs. Led by Nancy Fabian, Presi- dent, Anne Moreau, Vice-President; Holly Bastow, Secretary; and Elizabeth Cuddeback, Treasurer, the club strived to fulfill its duties of Service, Sports- manship, and Scholarship. With the help of the adviser. Miss Betty Lawson, Tri-S members planned their first fall activitiy— the initiation of over a hundred freshmen and sophomores. The initiates were required to attend school dressed in most unflattering apparel and perform a series of physical tests. Plans were soon made to hold a Dinner Dance at the Lord Jeffery Inn on December 8, and fund- raising campaign was launched. Besides paying dues, members also held a paper drive. As a service projects, the club collected used toys and donated them to the Veterans ' Hospital, where they were repaired and resold. Using mon- ey from its treasury, Tri-S donated two aerosol units to Cooley Dickinson Hospital, to be used in treating children suffering from cystic fibrosis. Tri-S once again proved the value of an active service organization. Tri-S Club presented two aerosol units to Cooley Dickins Community. Club officers led drive for used toys at Christmas t Amherst Accents Spirit With Varsity Cheerleaders urge Amherst on to victory. The Varsity Cheerleaders this year have given an enormous amount of their time and effort to stimulate school spirit and en- thusiasm at school games and pep rallies, and they have succeeded in doing so. At the same time they have won the admiration of students of our school and op- posing schools for their spirited and original cheers. The J.V. Cheerleaders have done an admirable job with their share of the cheering, too, and gave ample proof that Amherst Regional will not lack spirit boost- ers in the future. Besides many new cheers, the J.V. Cheerleaders added a ne.w member to their us- ual squad of seven, five-year-old Tracey Drew, their mascot.

The Varsity Cheerleaders spon- sored a fall dance for the football team and later combined efforts with the J.V. Cheerleaders to sell key chains with the 1965.-66 bas- ketball schedule on them. Mrs. Octavia Miller advised both cheering squads. Betty Guyott and Dale Maxson were co-captains of the Varsity Cheerleaders, Barbara Renaud and Sandra Mientka co- captains of the J.V. Cheerleaders. The Majorettes, in their sec- ond year of providing half-time entertainment, contributed to spir- it at our home football games. Led by captain Susan Shea, they also participated in pep rallies and parades at Amherst Regional. D. Drew, N. Kelly, M. Mitchell; Third Students Explore Their Inter si From left, first row: B.

Formed to stimulate stu- dent interest in chess, the club met weekly and devoted its time to the further development of members ' skills. Although most of the participating students al- ready were familiar with the game, there was an opportunity for non-playing students to learn. Mr. Paul Judson, math teacher, advised the group and aided them in their playing. The Chess Club planned to challenge other schools in the area and to rep- resent Amherst Regional at chess tournaments. Chess Club members devoted many hours to the game. The French Club was one of the more active organizations this year. In order to provide a pleas- urable means towards the ex- pansion of the students ' oral French, a variety of programs was initiated. About twenty students gathered every two weeks and with the help of Mr. Walter Ouimette conversed only in French. An executive committee con- sisting of Presiden t Denial Op- penheim, Vice-President Judith Wagner, and Secretary Anita Ben- nett planned the club ' s agenda. Programs included discussions with visiting lecturers, color slide presentations, and French Drama readings. At Christmas time, members took part in the joint A.F.S. Club— French Club carol- ing party. Throughout the year, French Club served as an enjoy- able exercise for French-speaking students. French Club members listen interestedly to guest speaker. ests in After School Activities. The formation of the Math Club this year was the result of interest expressed by the students. Ad- vised by Miss Jandris, the mem- bers planned a program that would provide mathematical rec- reation and not merely be anoth- er math class. At their semi- monthly meetings the members participated in mathematical dis- cussions and occasionally one member gave a lecture on some phase of math that interested him. Plans were made for affiliation with the National Math Organiza tion, MAO. Steve Marcus served as President of the club, Kathy Dittfach was Vice-President, and Marjorie Stockwell was Secretary- Treasurer. The Math Club planned programs for the members enjoyment. The A.F.S. Club planned an active fund-raising campaign. Activities Promote Scholarship and I The A.F.S. Club was formed sever- al years ago by students returning from abroad in an effort to promote interest in the American Field Serv- ice. This year, under the direction of Mr. William Ames, the club spon- sored a series of fund-raising events in support of the Students Abroad Program. Early in the year, the club hon- ored the school ' s three visiting stu- dents at an A.F.S. reception. Major money-making projects were a dance and bake sale. At Christmas time, club members went caroling with the French Club. There were two A.F.S. assemblies this year to present slide programs to the entire school. Car- olyn Ives, A.F.S. returnee from Nor- way, served the club as president, assisted by vice-president Elizabeth Gray, the student from England re- siding with the Leo Moreau family. Other officers were Nancy Woodfork, secretary, and Judith Wagner, treas- urer. Guided by these officers, the club worked to stimulate interest in the American Field Service. Delegates to the National Honor Society convention in Longmeadow were from left, Elizabeth Langland, Wilma Cashin, Susan Godsell; standing, Heidi Markert and Roger Rhodes. Susan Godsell and Elizabeth Langland were Amherst ' s two National Merit Finalists. Understanding. The Robert Frost Chapter of the National Honor Society was estab- lished this year, replacing the former honor society. Pro Merito. On February 5, five top-ranking Amherst students attended a re- gional conference at Longmea- dow, Massachusetts, to familiarize themselves with the workings of the society. Then, on March 4, the first members were inducted by the Northampton branch of NHS. Under the advisership of Miss Bet- ty Jane Donley, seniors and jun- iors alike were welcomed into the group if they had attained the the high standards of academic achievement set up by the so- ciety. Early in March, honor students from the senior and junior classes were inducted in the National Honor Society. The Amherst Regional Band rehearsed frequently for its public appearances. Student Musicians Pre Playing in the band was excellent practice for student musicians. Musically talented students enjoyed the opportunity to participate in concerts. The chorus, with a mem- bership of about twenty-five, was directed by Mr. John Maggs. Enlarged by the addi- tion of many new under- classmen, the chorus under- took a vigorous rehearsal program, which served as ex- cellent practice for musically- talented students. In December, the chorus held a joint concert with the junior high choir, and also presented a program of songs at the Christmas assembly. Members were then excused from school to sing at area nursing homes. With the new year, the chorus began to prepare num- bers for spring, and looked forward to singing at gradu- ation exercises. Three mem- bers, Lorna Lamsa, Thomas Rice, and Thomas Keedy par- ticipated in the Western Dis- trict Concert in January. sent Two Concerts. The Chorus sang several effective pieces at the Christmas assembly. The Amherst Regional High School orchestra and band, di- rected by Mr. John Maggs, have spent many hours re- hearsing this year, providing an enjoyable outlet for stu- dent musicians. During the first half of the year, the or- chestra prepared for its March concert. It was hon- ored by having four of its members chosen for the Wes- tern Massachusetts District Concert. Judith Wagner, flute; Barbara Wagner, oboe; Chapin Kaynor, French horn and Margaret Rice, cello, took part in the concert on Janu- ary 15. After playing and march- ing at several of the fall foot- ball games, the band began to rehearse for the March concert. Band members also launched a fund-raising drive for new uniforms. They planned to hold a magazine sale in the spring, and ar- rangements were made to sponsor the Michigan State Concert Choir and Orchestra at a concert in Amherst. Mr. John Maggs met regularly with the orchestra to rehearse for its concert. The Ski Club makes plans for the season. Students Find Enjoyment inj The Amherst Regional Outing Club made an effort this year to attract more students to its trips. Formed by a group of students interested in hik- ing, camping, and other outdoor ac- tivities, the club sponsored several outings on an informal basis. The first hike was a long fifteen- mile trek up AAt. Greylock in Williams- town. This was followed by a shorter ten-mile walk on the Jug End trails in the southwestern part of the state. After these two co-educational out- ings, the male members of the club camped for a night at Pico Moun- tain in Vermont. The club planned more activities for the spring season, guided by its adviser, Mr. Charles Camp. Outing Club members prepare for their winter expedition. Under the advisership of Mrs. Mar- jorie Day and Mr. David Hartwell, the Ski Club had a busy and successful season this year. Instead of taking a long weekend skiing trip the group decided to take several day trips. Among these were many Wednes- day night jaunts to Mt. Tom. The club officers— Philip Torrey, President; Roger Rhodes, Vice-President; Anne Moreau, Secretary; Virginia Harper, Treasurer— planned a January assem- bly with a guest speaker from Mr. Tom ski school and later organized a dance on February 6 to raise money for their activities. Great Outdoors. The Rod and Gun Club served to promote better sportsmanship, gun safety, and conservation among the fifteen boys interested in this aspect of outdoor life. Under the supervi- sion of Mr. Hollis Moore, these stu- dents met once a week and elected Mike Aldrich President and Kenneth Kolakowski Secretary-Treasurer. The club viewed films pertaining to fish and game. Some members at- tended classes in the safe handling of firearms. Special field trips includ- ed an icefishing expedition and cook- out, and a visit to the Savage Arms Company in Westfield. To end the year members planned to enter a trout fishing contest and attend a spring banquet. From left, First row. T. Stanley, J. Walas, P. Carey, C. Ostrowski; Second row; Mr. Moore, Sheerman, P.

Club members elect- ed Connie Eshback, President; Heidi Market, Vice-President; Nan- cy Stowell, Secretary; and Patricia Newton, Treasurer. In an effort to learn more about teaching prin- ciples, the club planned various programs throughout the year. Several speakers talked to the club, and discussions were held about teaching careers. Students interested in teaching found the Future Teachers Club helpful for future planning. The Future Teachers Club gained much from discussions with visiting speakers. With the aid of school Nurse Marie MacDonald, the Future Nurses Club initiated a series of programs to learn more about the different fields of nursing and to gain practical knowledge about a nursing career. The club met every other week and elected Jeanne Good, President; Carol Livermore, Vice-President and Ju- dith Gwozdz, Secretary-Treasurer. Regular programs consisted of films and speakers from the field of nursing. Beginning in Janu- ary, the girls assisted the town at the Well Child Clinics. The Fu- ture Nurses planned to travel to Boston ' s Floating Children ' s Hos- pital in March for a tour and a chance to talk with nurses there. By initiating such projects, the club increased the students ' eagerness for a nursing career. : M. Woodard, M. Burroughs, P. Kroner. Second row: A. Barker, Patricia Gwozdz, Continuing its tradition of re- porting school news, the Graphic produced six issues this year. Miss Dorothy Furgeson was advisor to the paper, and Elizabeth Roetter served as editor-in-chief. The Graphic had quite a large staff and added several new facets to the make-up. The paper spon- sored an Amherst Doorway Con- test, in which students were re- quired to identify five distinctive doors from town buildings. The success of these innovations led the staff to believe that Amherst Regional students do support the school newspaper. Although the school ' s member- ship increased, n ewspaper sales did not rise sufficiently to meet production costs, and the staff decided to adopt a new format. A suggestion that the newspaper be incorporated into the Amherst Record was not generally ap- proved of by the student body. Later the staff looked into the possibility of publishing one is- sue for both senior and junior high schools. for Careers. F.H.A. officers ted the club in its many projects. Early in October the Amherst Chapter of the Future Homemakers of America was established with Mrs. Marian Wilson as advisor. The club is a member of the national organization which is dedicated to furthering student interest in home economics. During the first meeting members chose Arlene Ashby for their President, and her assistants were Vice-President, Linda Tulenko; Secretary, Brenda Stoddard and Treasure , Mary Webb. Gladys Stone was elected Assistant Secretary; Bette Atkins, Re- porter; Carol Oliveira, Historian and Wambui Wan- jema. Parliamentarian. In November the Club attended the state meet- ing at Weymouth High School and planned to par- ticipate in the spring meeting at Framingham State Teachers ' College. Plans were also made to send one delegate to the National Convention at St. Louis in the summer of 1966. The ' Future Homemakers had a Food and Gift Sale at Christmas time, selling handmade corsages and other articles as well as baked goods. Mem- bers also sold cook books throughout the year. Various other projects, such as flower arranging, were completed, and members added greatly to their knowledge and skill in home economics. The Graphic staff held meetings to discuss the paper ' s format. In April, Amherst Regional sent four representatives to the Model Congress Convention at American International Col- lege in Springfield. The convention is sponsored by the History Department in behalf of high schools throughout New England and New York. An effort is made to stimulate the actual conditions of the United States Congress. Five members of the junior class vol- unteered to represent Amherst, and there- after met weekly to discuss possible bills. Under the direction of Mr. William Ames, the group decided to propose that the administration of the United States For- est Service be transferred from the De- partment of Agriculture to the Depart- ment of the Interior. Model Congress participants were: Roger Rhodes, Peter Feldman, Steven Marcus, Anita Bennett, and Edward Stoddard. Various Activities Provide Out- The Student Stock Exchange Orga- nization, in conjunction with the Mod- ern Problems classes, teaches students the operation of the stock market and th ' e nature of investments. Led by Michael Page, President; Candy Dur- gin, Secretary; and Diane Bleckwehl, Financial Secretary; the club met throughout the year according to ne- cessity. Monthly balance sheets were sent out to members to inform them of the status of the club ' s investments. Early in the year, SSEO members purchased shares at a dollar per share. After the club had collected $244, members voted to purchase six shares of Korvette stock. Later, after careful study, it was decided to sell those shares and buy five shares of Ampex. Members of the organization waited for the end of the year when they would realize the fruition of their in- vestment. SSEO whenever changes in stock values affected its investments. ' r For the second year in a row, Amherst Regional ' s As Schools Match Wits team won a berth in the semi-finals after four straight wins on Channel 22 ' s quiz pro- gram. The program was initiated several years ago by WWLP in Agawam to give area schools the opportunity to contest on television for scholarship prizes. The four members of the Amherst team and the two alternates were selected early in the year on the basis of a competitive exam. They then met weekly with their advisor, Mr. Laurel Crouse, to prepare for their first match in October. After defeat- ing Ludlow High School on October 8, the team proceeded to two decisive victories over East Longmeadow High and St. Mary ' s of Westfield. In the last match, Amherst won over Minnechaug High School by a narrow ten point margin. For the next three months, the team sat on the sidelines, watching Moderator I Phil Shepardson preside as other area schools matched their wits. The end of the first round came in February, and if Amherst could win in the finals, they would bring home dictionaries and $400 in scholarships for themselves and a lot of honor to their school.

This year the Great Books Discussion Program was initiated in the freshman class, with about eleven students partici- pating. Its aim was to provide an oppor- tunity for students to read and discuss some of the classical works. Through an exchange of views, participants learned to understand, interpret and share opin- ions. Two adult leaders, Mrs. Ward Motts and Mrs. Naomi Langford asked ques- tions and encouraged examination of the books. Taking part as guest discussion leaders on works in their respective fields were Mr. Walter Ouimette, Miss Betty Jane Donley and Mrs. Virginia Snopeck. Some of the primary works taken into consideration were Vergil ' s Aeneid, The Would Be Gentleman by Moliere, The Pilgrim ' s Progress by John Bunyan and The Overcoat by the Russian author, Go- gol. By meeting as a group every three weeks, the students became acquainted with these and several other major classi- cal works. Freshmen showed interest in the Great Books Discussion Program. Under the supervision of Mr. Ken- neth Marisseau the International Re- lations Club has had a very successful first year. The club was set up on the basis of rotating chairmen with a different member acting as mod- erator each month. Kathy Leonard served as permanent secretary and Howard Richman was head of the committee formed to plan their dis- cussions. Topics that most interested the participants were the Vietnam situation, religious beliefs, and free- dom of speech. Organizations Aid Students The Student Patrol, under the direc- tion of Mr. Laurel Crouse, has the task of monitoring the school ' s cor- ridors during class hours. Members who are volunteers from the senior class, are assigned posts in the hall- ways and must strictly monitor stu- dent movement while classes are in session. This year the captain of the Patrol force is John Grahame. For the first time, members were given badges to distinguish them from the rest of the student body. Designed especially for the organization by Diane Bleck- wehl, the diamond shaped insignia is maroon and white. The Leaders Club consists of a group of boys who have shown out- standing leadership in some phase’of athletics. In addition- to aiding the Physical Education Department in gym classes they also met on their own for practice sessions. The group ' s spe- cial project was the gym show, an annual event a t Amherst Regional, involving performance on the tram- poline, horse, vaulting box, mats, and parallel bars. Philip Torrey served this year as President, Alan Colby and Jerome Crowley as Vice-Presidents, and Craig Wilson as Secretary. The club ' s adviser is Mr. Charles Abram- son. and Faculty. The Audio-Visual Club was formed to acquaint students with the use and maintenance of audio-visual machines. Through their knowledge, the mem- bers are able both to assist teachers using these machines and to partici- pate in such activities as lighting and sound effects for the school plays. Under the supervision of Mr. Bruce Oldershaw, the students met in the A.V. room during their free periods to learn about the equipment. Front row, from left: S. Skillings, M. Fawkner, D. Willcox, D.

Coached by Mr. John Adams, the team met on an informal basis, as it was not yet a member of an official soccer league. However, Amherst has joined the Hamp- shire League for the 1966 season, and will participate in regular league matches. Team members practiced frequently for games with South Hadley, Smith School, Belchertown and Saint Michael ' s. Al- though the team did not win any of its contests, the future looks bright for this group of now-experienced underclass- men. The Soccer Club challenged the faculty game in the fall.

The girls ' varsity basketball team had a success- ful season, ending with an excellent record of nine wins and three losses. Liz Cuddeback, with a total of 79 points, was high scorer. Kathy Zunic scored 74 points in seven games to take high honors in points per game. Although the team ' s free throw average left much to be desired. Sue Wil- liams shot a respectable 39% from the foul line to lead the team. Judy Crossman and Sue Wil- liams were valuable to the team on offense as well as defense. Working with Joyce Crooker and Nancy Stowell, they formed a solid defensive b4ock. Sue Godsell and Marcia Howard are to be commended for their continued progress, which earned them the most improved player awards and added to the team ' s overall success.
