3-772T AMHERST REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY Amherst, MA 01002 We Dedicate Our Book To John Maggs How fortunate we are to be able to express our musical ideas and establish our own musical identities at A.R.H.S. We have a very special music program here and we are blessed with a man who combines what seems un- limited musical knowledge with a very real expression of human- ness and care. He inspires. We can sometimes forget how im- portant this latter quality is, but it often means the difference be- tween a student’s lack of motiva- tion and direction and a positive growing spirit which wants and needs to learn. John Maggs has shown us a very honest picture of what mu- sic means to him and what it can mean to us. His energy seems endless and he often will work day, night and weekend as a concert ap- proaches or a theater produc- tion requires his musical touch. Does the man ever sleep? John Maggs is an essential part of this community and of the faculty, but above all else, his most important attribute is his ability to be one of us. Tom Styspeck For the 10 years Tom Styspeck has been at A.R.H.S. he has done far more than teach Chemistry. He has not only been a teacher but more importantly, a friend. He has shown a genuine concern and respect for the student body. His ability to work with students has been exemplified by his 8 successful years as a basketball coach, during which he has twice led the team to a league title. His ability to relate to all students and his willingness to give his valuable time whenever needed has been deeply appreciated by all. 4 Coordinating Principal: J. Heffley Principal: S.

If you haven’t guessed who “we” are, we are the sophomore class. The class of ’81 has a lot to give to the school and, after graduation, to the world.

That so many people could so willingly subject themselves to such chaos, and to the ingestion of such quantities of starch and nauseous icings seems a bit hard to believe, until we recognize the business for what it is: A rite of passage. There is nothing that distinguishes the senior so much as the fact that he has endured three cake sales. 23 Senior Superlatives Most Likely to Make you Smile: Lynn Pelkey Class Redneck: Rick Sawicki Most Likely to Make You Look and Wonder: Ruth Bonsignore Best Smile: Sheila Gettier The class of ’79 was much like a town: It had its own little distinctions. In the class, as in a town, were many outstanding individuals. But instead of calling them “the town drunk’’ or “The town mortician”, we called them the class drunk” or “the class mortician” and placed them in a special section of the yearbook that we called the SENIOR SUPERLATIVES. This year we did not go out of our way to find people to go under certain headings (how would you like to find someone for “most likely to repel water” or “easiest to melt in cheese”?); instead, we recognized people who were unique in their own right.

This yearbook Is for you. As you contemplate these pages, it Is with our hope that you relive some some part of your stay at the high school. Although we put together what we felt could best capture this last year, we did not make the Goldbug; you did. We wish to thank you for being a part of our school, and for thus making the yearbook that much more special. Corny as it may sound, our efforts would not have been possible without you. So if another person reads this yearbook with somewhat less emotion than you do, remember that you are the fortunate one, because you have lived these moments and only you will look back to these days and recognize their very special sig ' nifi- With best wishes The Goldbug Staff ARNAV 1st r (r-1): K.

Some of you may remember us by our weekly lunch survey. A few may even have listened to our show. Regardless of our popularity, this group of dedicated students has put together a show every week with the hope that someone, somewhere is listening to It. We are Indebted to Bob Paquett for his unfailing ability to tolerate our weird sense of humor and to Mr. Scott for having the courage to want to be our advisor when no one else wanted us. The show goes on: Good morning, this is ARNAV, Amherst Regional News and Views ... Give us a try — Satur- day mornings at 10:05-14:30 AM W.T.T.T. — you might be sur- prised. It is our conceit that RUNES is one of Amherst Regional ' s major cultural ganglia. When looking at the numbers who purchase our occasional publication, we are aware that this is a very vain con- ceit, but we are happy with It. The idea that the students at A.R.H.S. have the taste to appreciate us is a comforting one. AS SCHOOLS MATCH WITS: lsli (1-r): A Wilce 2nd r (1-r): B Schwartzberg, D.

Thus far we have trav- elled to Boston and Montreal together with the Russian club from Austin Prep in Reading. In addition to seeing several Soviet movies, we have attended Russian Orthodox church services, and have eaten in a number of Russian restaurants. These activities were supported through bake sales and through “serf days”. A trip to the Soviet Union is planned for next year. GERMAN AMERICAN PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM: 1st r (1-r): J Chilton, G.

We organize such activities as Student Day and Anon- ymous Flower Day. We sell popcorn every Friday, and have a Taco stand at the fair. These money making schemes contribute to the two scholarhlps we give every year. We also work on improving the school, through the new Food Services Bureau and the Visiting Schools exchange. The Student Council has open meetings at which everyone is invited to attend to voice any suggestions they may have. The Peer Counseling group is open to all students who are inter- ested in improving their communication skills with friends, parents and teachers and who are also interested in studying various theo- retical approaches to counseling. Weekly meetings Include training in values clarification, racism and sexism awareness, and human relations skills. Perr counselors plan and implement new student orientation programs, parent-teacher nights and cultural programs. 35 THEATRE COMPANY: lstt (l-r): 8. Flllos, M Fillos, S Middleman, L.

After a year’s absence, Mr. Warthen, along with Donny Gray, direct- ed Familiars, a production of dramatized short stories — “Burial by Larry Woiwode, “Barbara of the House of Grebe” by Thomas Hardy and “Bobok” by Fyodor Dostoevsky. All three one-acts were suitably Warthenish: dark, strangely funny and including at least one part set in the Depression era. The cast will be eternally gratful to the Common- wealth Stage garbage dumpsters. Familiars 36 iter Company A Winters Tale To undertake a production of a Shakespeare play Is to take on both a masterpiece and an apparent Impossibility. The Winter’s Tale production proved successful, both cast and crew coming through with the audience left in an ecstatic daze. It most certainly was a learning experience. 37 38 OUTING CLUB: 1st t (l-r): W May. C. Fiorelll, L Callahan, J. Smith. N Bikaal, A T Wilce, R Berander, L. Fiorelli, M. Kobin, M. Mitchell. 2nd r: N.

Douglas, S. Hall, Hand Over Face, J. McLlelan, J. Allen. The Outing Club’s importance to the psychological health of this school is vast. It is a safety valve: Any student willing to participate can periodically escape the crushing tedium of text-book and test into the restfulness of rain, snow, sleet, sub-zero temperatures, mud, voracious insects and sprained ankles. The attractiveness of this option is demonstrated by the numbers of students who join in the yearly Lake George trip (perhaps the school’s most sacred tradition), which offers in addition to much of the above the fear of death by drowning.

In addition, they were affirmed by staff members to have a positive attitude of service to school. Annually, two members are nominated for national scholarships; the induction of junior members Is planned and carried out; and funds may be raised for a scholarship given at graduation. DEBATE: 1st r (l-r): J. Holiday, D. Schweizer, J. Fabel, C. Spivak. 2nd r: P. Li, J. Lawall, A Wilce, D. Hooke, R. Holmes, J. Baer (Ad ). Debate, as someone once said about another game, is one long regret. The fortitude of character needed to endure the condescen- sion and sliding sarcasm of endless, over-prepared opponents, to put with countless oafish judges, to survive unending evenings filing and misfiling evidence, is staggering. Yet we persist. There is a certain satisfaction in winning an argument even when the judge is too stupid to understand that you have won; and, sometimes, there are nice trophies. GRAPHIC: 1st t (l-r): J. McClellan, G Bishop. P Healy, A Hasbrook r: R Leibling, R Berra. D Start. The Graphic staff has spent long hours typing to produce the type of newspaper that would delight everyone from teachers to greas- ers. Being the strong, powerful staff that we are, we considered the first edition a major success and later decided we had no one to impress except ourselves. The Graphic is produced by the Journalism II class and, in theory, it teaches us about journalism. Since no one would actually pay for a Graphic, and we have to cover production costs, we send a few staff members around to local businesses and sell them ads. The paper is printed in Graphic Arts. A.R.H.S. Music At s JAZZ WORKSHOP CONCERT CHOIR The Jazz Workshop this year has had a diffi- cult start. There were varying degrees of tal- ent and knowledge, and even this was scattered. The group is smaller this year too, so the di- versity of the members is more intense, since people can’t grow up with their friends. So, we had to learn to play, (some of us); others had to learn patience; but we’re all together for the same reason — Jazz it up! The Chorale is really a group effort. We all work together learning new music, experienc- ing the audience’s response and performing the music with pride. Mr. Maggs always has a good program, ranging from early sacred music to Stravin- sky. Music is a universal expres- sion: singing in other languages and feeling like it’s our own. Everyone sings from deep in- side them. Young faces, we all look like babies when we sing, our eyes looking for “father” Maggs’ approval. BAND CHORALE TRI-S.: 1st t (l-r): J. Fitzpatrick, B.

The Amateur Radio Assoc, consists of students interested in operating and monitoring radio equipment. The group consists of students licensed by the F.C.C., as well as members who are study- ing for their licenses. Activities consist of operating the club’s transmitting and receiving equipment, building and or repairing electronic equipment, practicing Morse Code, and instruction in conducting communications during emergency situations. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: 1st r (l-r): K. Su, C.S. C. S. Wang, K Sakai, S.Sze, K Takamlzawa 2nd r: F Alvarez. B. Erzgraber, L Arkbarzadeh, C. Whitaker, J Alvarez, C. Vorhees, J. Faison. N Reyes-Agaponte, L Froning (Ad) The purpose of the International Students Club is to unite people of different cultures and to share the customs and traditions of their cultures. This year the ISC elected Therese Pham and Shu- Shin Sze to serve as co Presidents. Karen Su is the secretary and Chen-Shin Wang is the Treasurer. CHESS TEAM: (l-r): P. Judson, (Ad), J. Waldron, M. Mailey, A Wllcc, R. Buckley. It has been said that Just because one can knock one’s opponent down with th chessboard does not prove that one is the better player. Still, the appeal of the game is its violence: Egoes twist and snap as easily as sinew, and much more satisfyingly. BIOLOGY CLUB: (l-r): A. Hasbrook, S. Berquist, (Ad), J Holt, J Meyers, G Bishop The Biology Club has several projects under consideration this year. One of them involves analyzing the high school pond with an eye to improving its condition and restoring it to usefulness. Other less ambi- tious projects are also being discussed, as well as possible field trips to nearby points of interest. SMOKING TEAM: Wishes to remain unknown. 40 Tri-S Semi-Formal 41 WILLIAM ANNABLE JAIME ALVAREZ JONATHAN ALLEN BRUCE ALDRICH LIL1 AKBARZADEH A LOVE LETTER TO THE CLASS OF 1979 One has the tendency to reflect on the antics of the class of ’79 with a smile. When we entered Amherst Regional as sophomores, we were surprisingly unimpressionable youngsters. With bon- fires occuring left and right and the reinstitution of the pass system, a class just entering could easily have been corrupted. Despite the circumstances, however, the ' ll sophs kept cool and weathered the turbulence of their first high school year. In 1978, with the seniors making only occasional appearances and the sophomores not yet established, we more or less represented the school, taking firsts in floats and skits on booster day. By our senior year we had gained the reputation of a class of distinction. Although our methods were not always conventional (and occasionally provoked unjust criticism), our goals were achieved in the most enjoyable way — our way. The class of ’79 was composed of many extremes. To describe any specifically would be unfair, for all of the 350-odd individuals representing our class helped to make it what it was: Undefined. The class was composed of a diversity of people: brains, jocks, rowdies, artists, politicians, muicians, vandals, comedians, statesmen, free spirits, delinquints, gumbys one would think that conflicts would occur. To be honest, some did; but when called upon, the class gallantly conquered any task, from supporting the senior prom to selling watermelon at the fair. So as the class of ’79 leaves the comfortable halls of the high school, it is with our wish that they look fondly on this four year period. For we have experienced love, hate, happiness and despair together, and have learned from the pain of growing up rather than suffering from it. — Ronald Lee PAUL BAK REBECCA BALDWIN PAUL BANKS RICHARD F.

ARHS SOCCER It meant a lot of things to different people this year. To Mr. Potts and the school it meant occasional embarassment and controversy, but also a break in the monotony of the autumn pressures of returning to school. For the Junior Class, it meant an idea for their Booster Day skit. For the football team, it meant still an- other year of senseless singing in the locker room and a revealing lesson on how to have fun without necessarily winning ball games to achieve it. For the student, it meant seeing young adults act like buffoons in the hallways, and collecting soccer posters that provided wit, humor and per- version for all. For the Field Hockey team, it meant some loyal fans and an illustration of friendliness surpassed only by themselves. For coach Tom Granlnski, it meant long bus rides, talks with Steve Hasbrouck, bitching from the players and enough fond memories to return the following year. To George Como, Brian Leed and Peter Hartman, it meant all league honors in PVL II. To the player, it meant double sessions, early cuts, ten hours of practice a week, home games, away games, big nose glasses. Clash Day, the “Sun- shine Express”, the Mark Healy Memorial game, the Hallow- een Dance. Field Hockey, parties, more parties, bad soccer, very bad soccer, good soccer and of course, soccer. Our final record was 6-9-3 for the year. Since we moved up two leagues this year, our goal was merely to establish a solid record in PVLII. As the season progressed, we found that we had the potential to do better than that. But our lack of depth, healthy bodies and occasional lack of motivation did us in, as we fell back on our original goal for the season. We should like to thank our manager Lori Rowell for her limitless dedication ( TEN! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU ”), and Tom “Gra” Gralinskl for making Amherst soccer what it is, and what it wi ll always be. Some people don ' t understand how we can get a kick out of all walks of life despite a losing record. Well, as we have said all along, 9occer Is not only the sport, but the people that play it. In our opinion, those of you that can’t understand this little philosophy are really the losers in the world. 77 Football 1st r B. Chisolm. J. Jones. P. Monserrate. B Casey (Cpt). J.

Over the past few seasons the Amherst Football team’s record was anything but successful. After winning the Inter County League Championship the hurricanes com- pleted two winless seasons. For the players and the coaches those were times when it would have been easy to quit. In fact some people did. But for those who stuck it out there was always the feeling that we could turn the trend around, and for Amherst Football the ’78 season was the realization of something we knew we could do — win. The season started out like the past few, with a loss. But still we did not quit. We knew we had the talent and the cohesiveness for success. Then came the mauling of Longmeadow and then we had a purpose: to once again bring Amherst Football back to A.R.H.S. There were games that we did not play all that well and then there were games when it seemed that we could do no thing wrong. However, throughout the. season, the effort and desire to win was always present. The season concluded with a great win over our rivals from across the river — Northampton. To climax a 4-4-1 record over in the league and a 4-5-1 record over all, Gary Stosz was named all-league center and Rick Babb, Daryl Fleming and Bill Kelly received honorable mention. Fleming, and Kelly will join Dave Cole as the tri-captains for the ’79 Caines which will prove that Amherst Football is back to stay. Field Hockey 1st r: C. Clapp, R. Tudryn. S. Gettler, M. Kim, H.

Our statistics speak for themselves: 12-1-1 in season, 15-1-2 overall, Franklin County League Champions and Western Mass. Champs — The first time ever in school history. We lost in the semis of the State tourney to Auburn. So once again, we had a spectacular season, both on and off the field.

However, he still wasn’t sure they would do as well as his previous championship teams due to the in- creased quality of competition in Western Mass. Still, his harriers romped on to victory, winning all league meets, finishing with a healthy 10-1 record, the only loss to powerhouse Cathedral, and capturing the Valley Wheel League Title. In the Western Mas sachusetts Championships the harrier-canes came up two points short of up-ending Chicopee Comp, for second place, and finished a respectful third, just missing a chance to run in the state meet. Two top runners. Brad Gordon and Jake Greenspon. received all Western Mass, honors for their performances. This year’s recipient of the an- nual Ish award was last year’s run away winner. Brad Gordon. The team was also backed up by track sensa- tion Danny A. F. Richards along with newcomer Mike Noonan. Sophomore Steve Morrell, and honorable cap- tain Bruce the Moose Rice. Yet this supreme cross- country team is not totally insane like the soccer team nor such a surprise as the football team. We are. in simplest terms — Great. And next year should be even greater. The Girl ' s Cross Country Team was 2nd in Western Mass, this year again. The team was inspired by Flash “Mom” Larson who picked up some more medals for her already full shelf with a first place finish in W. Mass and a 14th place finish at states. We certainly will miss those legs next year. This was both an exciting and trying season. We started off by defeating our good friends from Mohawk by one point. We went on to many other victories, but the team began to dwindle because of injuries. We were especial- ly fond of Beth’s knees. Coach Julie ' s “Bis- cuits .

So we will be look- ing forward to another successful season. It’s the beginning of the end. or is it the end of the beginning? The Amherst Boys’ Swim Team has had a most unusual season sloping from 8-7 to 1-15. Coach O’Donnell paid more attention to individual improve- ment this season rather than team improvement. There are some aspects of swimming one of which Mike Cuomo expressed. Everyone knows swimmers are quite dedicated to their teams and Mr Cuomo displayed this while swimming the 200 freestyle event at a home meet. He came out of the turn after 150 yards and because of a loose fitting bathing suit he startled each and every spectator in the bleachers by improving his time by two seconds. As you can see this season has been quite eventful and the team will be very much the same next year since there are no graduating seniors. J.V. Volleyball: l at tow: (l-r): P. Christ inson, K.

Warner We the volleyball team “boys” and girls have had a tough struggle through the past 2 years. It all started when boys wanted to play volley- ball. Since there wasn’t a boys’ team, they decided to go out for the girls’ team. No rules stopped them from doing so. The year went smoothly, winning almost every game, until States, when every other team forfeited and we walked off the courts with the States trophy and with tears, but not tears of joy. We thought it was all over, but this year the M.I.A.A. struck us harder than before. (They ruled no boy may play on a girls’ team) We played with the boys when the other teams would play against us. Then in the middle of the season boys were ruled off the team, unable to play at all. Mixed feelings came to the minds of all involved. The rules are still not in order; hopefully in the years to come volleyball teams will never have to go through the mess we had to. 82 Hockey: let row P. Stedman, J. Klttrell, Asst. Capt. B. Leed. M.

Under new Coach Buzz Bray and Ass ' t. Jim “A-H” Ruder it was an enjoyable season. Through good times and bad we laughed at the sight of Paul “Drooper” Stedman. fall down comic Jacques Pelham, and Mark Plourde (“Short and Sassy”). The “BIG” plays of John “Logger” cushing were popular. Captain Chip Campbell and Assistant Captain Mark Healy led the team in scoring. Ass’t Capts. Brian Leed and George Theilman also provided offense. Junior Goalies Stedman and Cole were likened to “Horatio at the Bridge.” Defenseman Mark Woynar “nuckled” a few opposing players, but Jeff Klttrell led the team in penalties. We would not have survived the season, however, if not for our dedicated manager Carl “Hawai- ian Punch” Ackerman, who kept us all from dying of thirst. Wrestling: let row (l-r): P. Lazarus, C. Wilkinson, G. Stosz, T. Mercer, K. Sinclair. R. Powers, f. Fata. 2nd row (l r): Coach K. Griffin, D. Stowell, P. Boucher, D. Cantor. M. Sanchez, H. Banner, D. Reynolds, M. Ollphant, J. Thelen, G. Fata, Coach C. Scanlon Although the ’78-’79 A.R.H.S. wrestlers couldn’t match last year’s seconds, they had a fairly successful season. Their dual meet re- cord was 7-9, and they placed Sth out of 16 teams in Western Mass. It was a building year for the grapplers with only 4 seniors. Next year’s team promises to be very strong. First year coach Kevin Griffin is the best coach A.R.H.S. has seen in many years, and it will be hard to replace him next year, (he is dying of leukemia). Some of this season ' s highlights were co-capt. Mark Oliphant’s 4 th place finish In Western Mass, (even though he was wres- tling with crushed vertebrae); Howie Banner’s surprising 3rd place finish and of course Gary Stosz’s overwhelming victory over Granby ' s awesome behemoth In the finals. Some special memories from the season are Quido, STOSZ-Y!!!, Tom Mercer’s misadventures with the girl’s basketball team, coach ' s woman, Da- vey’s pro-Keds, Mad Dog’s growl. Fata’s sweats, the Race Riots, The Pit, The Kegger, Clifford’s Yogurt, Russel’s Diet, and there’s always Bake. 83 Varsity Basketball: 1st row (1-4): T. Styspeck, G. Mann, L. Ralph, D. Flemming, R. Jaque, 2nd row (I- r): D. Whitfield, B. Gabriel, M. Gilbert, M. Jones, B. Carey, C. Yotides, G. Thomann J. V. Basketball: 1st row (l-r): M. Forsyth, J. Austin. P. Berwald, D. Drake 2nd row (l-r): K. Flood, B. Volpe, J. Perdomo, P. Rios, T. Fish, T. Dapprlch, F. Daniels Once again the Boys’ Basketball Team finished with a winning record in its second year in the Valley Wheel League. The team, which consisted of only three seniors — Bob Carey, Mike Jones, and Lee Ralph — was a surprising success. The quick adjustment by the younger players — Gary Mann, Daryl Fleming, Chris Yotides, Byron Gabriel, Don- ald Whittfield, and Michael Gilbert — was the main reason for the teams’ success. There were many high and low points during the season. The winning of the third annual Christmas Basketball Tourna- ment in the beginning of the year, and the astonish- ing 95-61 thumping of Longmeadow, the Valley Wheel champions, were the main high points. The level of play that existed this year with the young team showed that Coach Styspeck’s squad will be ready and waiting for next year. i ' u ’V ' W 84 ThU year’s 1978-’79 Girls’ Basketball team astonished the Valley Wheel League by stealing the title with an unblemished 14-0 record, their first year in the league. Their overall non-tourna- ment record ended at 18-1. Coach Missy Shea success- fully pulled together the nine member squad, leading them to the Western Mass, tourna- ment where they were seed- ed first. Co-captains-token senior Gail Maisner along with ju- nior Nadine Jackson, -kept the team going through the long season. Returning from last year’s Varsity squad were juniors Cindy Clapp and Jenny Gray to whom Coach Shea looked to for ex- perience. The remaining members, Debbie White, Carol Progulske, Tracey Stiles, Wendy Wolf, and Denise Fleming rounded off the Hurricanes. Next year will also be a po- tential winner as eight of the nine members will be back on the hardwood. Girls ' J.V. Basketball: 1st row (l-r): A. Sheerman, L. Jones. F. O’Connor. A. White. K. Nerbonne. S. Archer. 2nd row (l-r): T. Mercer. L. Scott. R. Cleary. B. Thorton. K. Klemer. Coach Dowling Gymnastics Though we suffered a few losses this year (i.e., our mascot, Sonia and Laurie, Tracy and Alice), we had many more gains. We went 5-1 in divi- sion, 7-7 overall. Seniors Becka Ludtke and Me- lissa Kim both went to the State individuals meet, on beam and bar respectively. The move to counting four scores was complemented by depth-providing juniors Patty, Lisa and Lucy. Adding to the excitement were newcomers Sherri and Bonnie. Next year promises to be interesting, with Patty, Tina and Bonnie as po- tential all-arounders to compensate for gradu- ation losses. Up-and-coming tiny tots assure a good team for years to come. Girl ’ Gymnastics: 1st row (I to r): B. Ludtke. P. Lamoureux, C. O’Shea. L. McLellan. M. Kim. 2nd row (I to r): R. Culbertson. K. Lamoureux. L. Smith. T. Currin, B. Brooks. D. Chisholm, S. McConnell, M. Pion, M. Benander 86 Ski Team: let row (l-r): A. Stein, J. Bennett (Ass ' t Coach), J. Allen, R. Kirk 2nd row (1-r): J. Hill, J. Rosklll, J. Seaver, J. LaPrade, A. Stein, A. Klock The Hurricanes consistently im- proved to move upward form a 7 th place start to a 5 th place finish in the 14 team Western Mass. High School Ski League. But, more important, we captured the trophy for the top B divi- sion team, overtaking Agawam for the honor. All this puts Amherst back in A division for next season. Strong and steady racers, reliable times and few disqualifications helped secure our efforts. The Amherst team is young and shows great potential to score high next year, especially with the return of top skiers Andy Stein and Rob Kirk, who were in the top 3 team times all season and with the return of coaches John Cushing and Judi Bennett. Squash Team: row (l-r): J. Smith, P. Hartman. D. Weeks. 2nd row (l-r): L. Briggs. S. Sullivan, L. Demerath, M. Dwyer, K. Lee The best way to describe the Squash Team this year would be: outstanding individual perfor- mances. However team had a hard time putting all their wins together to obtain a better record. The over- all record was 2 wins, 7 losses. Steve Gordon and Matt Dwyer had the best win records. Steve won all his matches, except one. John Smith, Peter Hartman and Ken Lee showed good improvement as the season went along. Shawn Britt, Clark Callahan and Dan Weeks had good performances at times. Hey sweetie!

' ■V Guys And Dolls This year’s musical endeavor is Guys Dolls. the sure fire Broadway fantasy about small time New York gamblers in the 50’s. The show is a combination of romantic interests, wonderful music and comic bits which sound awful but are sheer fun. The play is challenging to vocalists, dancers and actors, but most of all it’s a lot of fun. 95 AN AMHERST HIGH Come see the ways of Pat Leighton Who chuckles and trots Or the great deal of respect We give to Sam Potts The Healys are famous For their soccer mystique And also Amy Russell With her clothes quite unique Keep an eye on Brian Smith As he juggles with great care As well as Darryl Fleming The king of sports flair.

To ac- quire excellence one must have will power to advance forward, to over- come defeats and to strive upward to the highest degree of ability. Excellence does not have to be approved by anyone or anything. Self devotion and self-esteem may have great influence on the course to excellence ... If one has a goal to meet and reaches it. — Bill Neary 9 11 78 William S.J. Neary Dec. 16, 1960- Jan 30, 1979 After a friend departs, the essence of his spirit stirs our hearts with faith and love Billy we love you. At this point in my life one of my personal philos- ophies is to live one day at a time. Even though the future is important, I firmly believe the present, meaning today, is very significant. 1 have had many experiences showing me that one must make the most of today. First of all there is school. Second, work has now taken time away from sports. At one point in my life sports were to be my future. Finally leisure time plays an important rule for today. As for school, I must get an education even though I’m still not certain as to my educational goals. I find school difficult so 1 must take it one day at a time. Now I find I need money and have to give up sports for today . . . Again unable to project Into the future. My greatest enjoyment is doing something I like. May- be sometime I can combine my education, sports, work and leisure activities into a more certain future, but for now there seems to be no way that I can do anything but to live each day the best I can. — Bill Neary 9 11 78 99 Jennifer Melnick September 15, 1962 February 23, 1979 To Jenny: Let me lose a locket. Money or my keys, And can always find a way To substitute for these; Let me lose a yard of time. And can race the sun. Or stay up till the last pale star And get things done; But let me lose a friend love. Heart has no door nor pane. And all the bitter winds rush in And all the lonely rain. Amherst, MA 01002
