On one side of the world men were at death grips with one another. Cannons boomedg bayone-ts flashedg machine guns puttered, mowing down with sinister precision hundreds and thousands of men. The Four Horsemen stalked the length and breadth of Europe, leaving in theirwake grim tragedy, pestilence and the awful correlaries of twentieth century warfare. On the other side of the world civilization wlas painting another and much different picture. The forces of Education were marshaling their latest and youngest draft. Hundreds and thousands of children six years removed from the cradle were marching into a twelve-year battle with the powers of daI'KI1eSS-1g- norance and its allies. They clattered into s-cores of school bulidings bearing in their small hands pencils, tablets and other requirements of their erstwhile call- ing, a bit frightened iby tlhe strangeness of the events which had overtaken them. but orderly and eager. We were a regiment in this army. MTwelve years have sped since those days --years filled with pains-taking effort, happiness and accomplishment which en- titles twenty-four of our members to .the coveted sheepskin. However, as if deter- mined to make up in quality what is lacking in quantity, certain members of our class have already left their footprints on the sands of time-impressions which have brought honor to the school and Won for it state-wide recognition. Outstanding among these accomplishments is the oratorical championship of the district, embracing thirteen counties. For two consecutive years the plaque symbolizing supremacy in this extra-curricular department has decorated the walls of the school. Won originally by Ruth Zilch in 1929, it was retained this year through the efforts of silver-tongued Robert Standen. Our class has two outstanding athletes which have done much toward circu- lating the fame of the school in far places. Alfred Sharp and Milton Hutton dem- onstrated an unusual versatility shortly after entering high school land 'have con- tributed a great deal in the last four years to upholding the sporting traditions es- tablished by older predecessors. Football, basketball, track and baseball in Am- herst have derived increased impetus from the activities of several Senior men. We originally numbered among our members fa little fellow with a Webster- ian brow known as Adam Callen. Adam performed the phenomenal feat of' gradu- ating from high school in three years-with honors. In reality a member of the 1929 graduating class, we claim him as amember since he started his high school career with us. Go-getiveness is a quality which we claim and far from being a mere boast, here is our evidence. We won the Record subscription contest for the last two years. Seniors starred in "Dulcy," "Peg o' My Hear-t" and "In Old Vienna." Sien- ior scores in typing and scholastic conitests have helped make Amaherst rivalry feared by competing schools. If I would write a history of our class thirty years from now, judging by past records, the tale would include biographies of a second Babe Ruth, Knute Rockne, Rudy Valee and Patrick Henry. Twelve years of lengthy working days have produced genuine ability and ambition, We Wish to exnress our appreciation to the teiachers for their fine work and to all whom we leave behind we give the best wishes for future success.

Witnesses: MARION STEELE NORWOOD HEARN AM EIJIA HERBST Class Prophecy When we, Helen Heck and Wanda Berk, were making a tour of the country in June, 1945, establishing tap dancing schools in various parts, We very unexpected- ly came across our former classmlates and graduates of 1930. One day after a busy morning in our studio, as we walked along a street in Cleveltand in search of a restaurant we came upon a very nice-looking lunch room, so we decided that that was the one for us. We noticed a very familiar look- ing "Chevie" parked in front of the place, but We could not at first place it. Vile walked in and whom should we see but one of our former classmates, Lloyd Maurer. He informed us that he had been operating a chain of restaurants from coast to coast since his cafeteria course in his Senior year' of high school. While we were eating a very satisfying meal, in walked Helen Beres and Eliz- abeth Gressler. They were, then, working in a law office. They did not at first recognize us, but when they did they told us that Helen Roemier had been teaching Latin in a small place near Amherst. Walking along the street again, we were attracted by a shop window. We went in and found Hilda Mori, but now being called "Madame Mori". It was a dress shoppe handling the latest styles from Paris. Deciding that we needed a haircut, we entered a convenient bariber shop and beauty parlor. You just couldn't imagine who was in there cutting hair. It was none other than Virginia Cooper. The shop was called the "Cut 'em Close Barber Shop", specializing in famous windblown bobs. On the wlay out we took a peep intothe office and whom do you think we saw there? Another of our old classmates, Helen Zink, who informed us that Miss Cooper had found it necessary to employ a bookkeeper to help her. That night we decided to go to the R-K-0 Palace to see the two famous actors about whom we had heard so much. We obtained seats in the twelfth row and were comfortably seated when one of us happened to notice that the lady sitting THII RECORD 13 next to us looked rather famliliar. We looked again and recognized her as Amelia Herbst. She introduced us to -her tall, dark and handsome husband and invited us to her home for the week end. Of course, we accepted. The overture began, and as our eyes were drawn to the piano, we recognized Myrtle Braun, who was playing. The curtain rose and we again received a shock. for who should the famous actors be but Ruth Zilch and Howard Nalley. The show was a huge success and we felt proud that they had received their first training in A. H. S. Arriving at Amelia's apartment, we turned on the radio to station WCTU and heard Senator Robert Standen speaking on prohibition. Since we had nothing else to do on Sunday afternoon, we thought we would like to see a baseball game, so we visited Dunn Field. The game was excellent. It was won through the superior work of the shortstop, who, we found, was Allen Lange, and the third baseman, Clarence Frederick. On Monday morning we started for Chicago, but before leaving we went to the corner to buy a paper. We purchased a Plain Dealer and immediately turned to the comnlc section, as usual. You can imagine our surprise when we saw Allan Bech- tel's name there as art editor. At last we started out, but had gone but a little way when two cars in front of us collided. We rushed to the scene. A child was seriously injured. It seemed that we were the only ones present at that moment, so we took the child to the hospltnl, A surgeon came to meet us in front of the hospital. He was followed by the head nurse, Kathryn Grugel. We did all we could and then started out again, but to our dismay we had a flat tire before we had gone two miles. A little way ahead we saw a garage. En- tering we found Milton Hutton repairing an Oldsmobile. He told us that he spe- cialized in repairing that kind of car. At last we arrived at Chicago. We were just about to our apartment when a cop stopped us to tell us that we had only one light. You can probably guess who that was, since he had so much experience as cop in A. H. S., but if you can't, perhaps we'd better tell you. It was William Huber. We dldn't see any more of our old friends until we returned to Amherst, where we found the rest. While we were visiting school one day we entered the American History class and found Alfred Sharp teaching his pupils about the Boston Tea Party. We learned that George Fuhrman had recently won a prize for cutting up a beef in 4 38!60 seconds. We also learned that Alice Svabiers was teaching music in the Oberlin Conservatory. X We found the last one of our classmates getting off the train at the Amherst depot. Regina Fuhrman was just returning from China where she had been a mis- sionary for the last ten years. And just between you and us, we believe she is go- ing to be married. Anyway, a very nice-looking mlan got off the train with her. Perhaps she met him on the boat. Our former class advisor, Mr. Norwood Hearn, has given up his manual train- ing position in A. H. S. and established a large furniture factory in Amherst, known as "The Hearn Home Outfitters", giving special rates to newlyweds. Our business trip being completed, We are now sailing for Paris. Even though we are widely separated, we hopeuthat we shall be able to keep in touch with the members of the class of 1930. WANDA BERK HELEN HECK THE RECORD THE CLASS OF 1930 'Twas four years, yes, four years ago, Years that are dear to me. VVhen the class of 1930 was born, And set forth upon Education's sea. In those fleeting years, friendships true, Entwined themselves 'round our hearts. May these cherished thoughts of school days From memories ne'er depart. Courteous and courageous, full of life, This is the Senior Class. In storm. and in calm, in every trial, They never fail to pass. 'Tis true the path was not always smxooth, But of obstacles we conquered all. Loyal and true to the Silver and Blue, Vlfe now must heed Life's call. Devotion we've mingled with work and play, Devotion to Amherst High. Of Educaftion's fruits, we received the best, Now we say our last good-bye. As we go through life, the paths we roam, May be. varied and far apart. We shall give our 'best to reach the goal, And always be stout of heart. Though we are through and must take our leave Our thoughts of thee shall never die, With backward glance we breathe these words, "Farewell.to thee, dear Amherst High." 'St x Q r.

One hundred and fifty-four years ago the government of the United States wus born. To this new democracy, the greatest experiment in the history of the world, our forefathers pledged their lives, their fortunes and their honor. In the century and a half since the establishment of the democracy, we have become known as 'a government not afraid to experiment. The nineteen amend- ments added to the Constitution are ample proof of the progressiveness and adap- tability of the government. Aversion to slavery was one of the principles embodied in the foundation of the United States. In 1865 the thirteenth amendment was added to the Constitu- tion and the slavery of the Negro was forever abolished. In 1919 the Prohibition amendment was passed and another form of slavery was outlawed, the slavery to the liquor habit. Prohibition came into the United States as a moral issue. No other of the nineteen amendments to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights included, received the affirmative vote of as many states. It was the will of the peop-le who had realized that the nfation must be emancipated from this evil. The man with the blurred eye, the befuddled brain, the un-steady hand-was he elevated to the responsible position in industry? Indeed not! He was an outcast, drifting from position to position and eventually eliminated. Quick thinking and a steady hand proved to be the key to the door labeled success. However, after ten years of experience with the Eighteenth Amendment, we have had ample opportunity to observe its defects. Today there are men in the business world who object to the amendment as it now stands. Mr. W. VV. Atter- bury, DI'eSidEI1t Of the Pennsylvania Railroad, exploded a bombshell of confusion recently when he spoke on behalf of the anti-Prohibitionists in Washington. If so important a man in the business world as Mr. Atterbury opposes the amendment, we may justly ask ourselves the question, "Isn't there something wrong with Pro- hibition?" But we investigate farther and find that the Pennsylvania Railroad, which Mr. Atterbury, represents, has for thirty years maintained and enforced ab- solute Prohibition. Logically, we ask ourselves another question: "If Prohibition ls a good thin.g for the 171,000 employees of the Pennsylvania Railroad, why isn't it a good thing for other people?" Today the economic demands make Prohibition a very necessary part of our industrial program. Leaders in industry are faced with the soundest of economic facts-a befuddled brain cannot do a good day's work. Henry Ford says that it booze ever comes back to the United States he is through with manufacturing. He "wou1dn't be interested in putting automobiles into the hands of a generation soggy with drink." Do you think he would be interested in putting airplanes into the hands of such a generation? My friends, in this complex organization of society every man carries his neighbor's safety in his hands-in the shop, on the street. wherever he goes. Pro- hibition exists primarily in the interest of public safety. Restrictions are no real handicap. And yet they 'are a real safeguard to your fellow men. One criticism has been offered, and perhaps justly, that Prohibition came into the United States prematurely. It may be true that Prohibition did appear before certain sections of the country were educated to it. But considering it as a prac- tical proposition, ought we at this late date go back and begin all over again? Who wishes to return to the period whenthe open saloon ruled the town? To the 4 THE RECORD 35 time when the working man stopped at the saloon and drank away his wages while the family at home waited in vain for his coming? And when at last he did appear, he was not the kind, loving taiiher that he might have been, but a boast CYHZGG by D0iS0I1- Surely the intelligent peop-le of the United States wil go forward, not backwardg uphold, not destroy the good resulting from the Eight- eenth Amendment. The benefits already achieved are ample proof that America must not go back. When the tentacles of the lil0Tl11tEr, drink, werg Severed, 3 Saving of six billion dollars a year was accomplished, simply through the release of human energy H1101 Skill- With U19 COmiI1f-I of Prohibition waves rose to new levels, 252, higher than the old. Prohibition has replaced destructive industries with constructive industries. The two million dollars once spent for liquor is now spent for constructive education and building. I have in mind a certain street in a certain city, it may ibe your home town or it may be mine. Before Prohibition it was unsafe to be on that street after nightfall. Today that section is built up with constructive business estab- lishments, industries w-hich are assets and not liznbilities to that city. Looking at the problem from a logical standpoint, if we were to make any changes in the present sy-stem. there are but four possible courses of action open to us: repeal, modification, disrespect and full enforcement. Repeal of the law is regarded by the leaders in Washington as practically impossible. Never in the history of our democracy has an amendment been repealed. To modify the law would be to make a scrap of paper of a clause in the Federal Constitution, adopt- ed to outlaw intoxicating liquors. Non-enforcement is nothing less than frank nulllfication and those wiho follow this course are traitors to the government and the cause for which it strives. What Prohibition needs is not repeal, not modifi- cation, not disrespect, but full enforcement. Washington, in his: Farewell Address, expressed the thoughts of the true patriot when he said, "This government, the off-'spring of your own choice, adopted upon full investigation and mature delibera- tion, has a just claim to your confidence and your support." It is our duty, as citizens of the United States, to unite and foster a spirit of respect for law. In all our American history there is no more powerful picture than that which originate-d in the mind of the poet Markham when he wrote of Lincoln- "And when he fell in whirlwind, he went down, As when the lordly ce-dar, gr-een with boughs, Goes down with a great shout upon the hills, And leaves a lonesome place against the sky." The hand that cut down the great Lincoln, in the metaphor of the poet, uprooted a great tree and left a lonesome spot upon the mountainside. There still stands another great tree in this fair land of ours. It is a mighty monarch, the spirit of American law. It was but ta seedling when the M2tyfl0W6r C0I!1DaCt WGS Signed. the document which bound the settlers of the bleak New England coaslt to law abidance. Today the full-grown tree is a -mighty Pillar ill T-he Sl1DD0l'f of AXHGFIKCHH democracy. What a devastating effect it would have on the security of our democ- racy if there should fall this other great tree, the Sllififi of American law. My friends, the eyes of the Wm-id are turned toward America. If Prohibi- tion falls in America it is doomed the world over, and democracy itself will bc given a fatal blow.
