CE AGAIN HERE AS SCHOOIMATES ASSEM
WE FAIN WOULD LIFT OUR HEARTS IN
For twenty-five years we have been singing our high school
song. This song has been synonymous with the traditions,
achievements, pleasures, and friendships which we enjoy at
A. H. S. Once again as we sing "So here's a cheer for our
old high school", let us recall all of the classes, the activities,
and the athletic contests in which we have participated during

The Board of Education
GEORGE WALKER FRED I-I. HOGREFE EDWARD R.MENz EARI E COTTON
One of Amherst's largest and most important industries is the
Amherst Public Schools. Serving as directors of this business
are the members of the Board of Education, who give im-
measurable time and thought to such duties as approving the
school budget, recommending building repairs, hiring teachers,
studying curriculum trends, and sponsoring athletics. Although
these men do not gain extensive recognition for their efforts,
we hope that they will receive some satisfaction from the
realization that by their work with the children of today, they
are helping to develop good citizens of tomorrow.
Fred R. Powers
We all know our superintendent's
merits. We know that he takes a
personal interest in every pupil and
that he works tirelessly to provide the
hest educational opportunities for all.
When we sing our high school song,
we are really singing the praises of
our superintendent, for Mr. Powers,
by his many years of service as an
efficient administrator, by his inspira-
tion as a teacher, and by his sym-
pathetic understanding as a counselor
and friend, has built up a school of
which we may well be proud.

Marion L. Steele
If we were to give our principal a
report card rating, assuredly Miss
Steele would score a perfect grade in
every field of endeavor. Superior
teaching, friendly guidance, enthusi-
astic support of all extra-curricular
activities, sincere appreciation of good
work, and honest love of wholesome
fun -all these qualities would earn
for Miss Steele a grade of "excellent"
Here's a cheer for our principal, who
tops the Honor Roll with all A's.

"Juniors So Fligh'ry" Stage Prom on Showboa
The grand ballroom of the U. S. S. Showboat, alias the Amherst High School gym-
nasium, was a thrilling background for the glittering formals, dancing feet, and happy faces
at the junior-Senior Reception on May S. Smiling Claude Miller, junior class president,
welcomed the classes to the prom. The juniors had been working for three years for this
event. President Millet and his co-workers, Carol Gilliland, vice-president, Betty Grugel,
secretary, and Kathryn Sabiers, treasurer, directed several money-making activities for the
classg foremost among these projects were the snack bar at the football and basketball
games, the sale of football programs and souvenirs, and a subscription drive for the Amherst
The Class of '49 includes many stellar students as well as several superior athletes and
musicians. Juniors are especially proud of their three-letter man, jerry Prittie, who was
voted the most valuable player on the football team. Other leaders in the class are the three
varsity cheerleaders, Betty Grugel, Lois Scheide, and Kathryn Sabiers.

Being the largest class in high school, the sophomores have profited by their advan-
tage in numbers by winning all sales campaigns this year. Although the sophomores have
never topped the Honor Roll, they perhaps surpass all others in sociabiliry. Ardent patrons
of the Rec, the tenth graders enjoyed many happy times at the youth center. Most memo-
rable of these events was Clara Lodges birthday party.
Officers of the group are Douglas Buchs, presidentg Charles Berrington, vice-presi-
dent, and Marie Wagner, secretary-treasurer.

Council Leads Academic and Social Activities
Sponsoring rallies, selling tickets to football games, supporting campaigns- this is
the typical work of the Student Council. The student jurors opened the football season
with a successful "Kick-Off" Dance and closed it with the Football Banquet. Later in
the year the Council members' pockets jingled with contributions collected for the Father
Flannigan Fund and the Hospital Drive. A major social event of the spring, the annual
Basketball Banquet, was another of the accomplishments of this student organization.
The Council was led this year by Jack jewett, president, Wttyne Schnaak, vice-presi-
dent, and Mary Lou Borowicz, secretary-treasurer.

Prohahlv some of the busiest students in the school are the secretaries. Girls who have had a full course in hook-
keeping, shorthand and typing are qualified for secretarial work, training which is invaluahle in giving experience for
The girls become adept in practically every line of office work. Duties include making out report cards and grade
sheets, mimeographing lCStS, and preparing attendance sheets. ln addition to all this, the secretaries take dictation and
type letters, two "musts" in becoming efficient' stenographers.
Librarians Check Out Books and Periodicals
Now we come to some of the many other duties in which A. H. S. students participate. Before school, during the
noon period, and also during each period of the day, you will find a charming and helpful student librarian on duty in the
lihrary. Of the many things that she does, here are just a few: sign out books and magazines, collect fines, mend vol-
umes, catalogue new editions, post articles of current interest, and keep the shelves and the room tidy.
Other students who give a lot of time and energy in serving not only the students hut also those who come as strang-
ers to the school, are the hall guards and office aides. You will always find two students in the front hall ready to meet
and direct visitors, Office aides take phone calls. run errands. check attendance, welcome visitors and do secretarial
work for Miss Purcell.

. . and Good Will of Entire Community
by F. R. Powers
If, when you pick up the family Bible this eve-
ning, you'll just thumb through it until you come
about to the second chapter of the Book of Acts,
along about the seventeenth verse, you'll find the
line, "And your young men shall see visions, and
your old men shall dream dreams."
A person could tote that text right down to the
Amherst Memorial Field and really make it apply
to what has happened there during the last couple
of years. For when the harvest moon is shining
over that field and the game is on and the band is
parading between the halves and that crowd of
hundreds of people is really entering into the spirit
of one of those Amherst Comets' football games, it
does seem to be a dream come true, a realization of
a vision that is now reality.
The AMHERST BOOSTER CLUB started the
ball rolling. They raised the money to buy the
fence and the lights down there. Of course that
money came from hundreds of Amherst people, so
we all feel more or less like prime movers in the
enterprise. The U. S. Automatic Corporation gave
us the money to buy that large additional plot of
land that now forms the east half of our field. The
local light plant men did a wonderful job of install-
ing those lights. We can well feel proud of our
field. Then the Athletic Association came through
with the money to buy those two fine sets of ten-
high bleachers. The township trustees gave us
many a lift with their machinery.
l The Board of Education starred out by undertak-
ing to grade the field, seed it, and get the whole
"ground works" in good order. That was a real job.
We thought that first summer that the new grass
would never start to grow. The water company
gave us some special consideration and even the
Fire Department gave us a lift. It was a pleasure
to see members of the Board and even the local
editor working away with picks and shovels. Of
course there were some men and some boys from
the school house, too, who lent a hand. Our two
ianitors always manage to get in on such jobs.
Even the United States Government abetted the
cause, for they sold us at very small cost those five
buildings from the old establishment up at Plum
Brook. That was quite a venture, buying those
buildings way up south of Sandusky and getting
them down here for dressing rooms, refreshment
stands and ticket booths. We find many people
envying us our success in getting those.
I'm afraid that if I start mentioning names of
people who did outstanding work down there, I
shall get into trouble, for it's easy to omit names
when a fellow starts writing some down. But Carl
Kolbe did contribute his machine for digging all
those holes and Carl Mulder did lay a lot of those
concrete blocks under the building that came down
from Plum Brook.
Whoever did it all does not matter so much.
Seems as though I remember hobbling down there
on crutches at the start of the game and possibly
lending a hand myself at mud-mixing Knot sling-
ingj along toward the end of the project. The
main thing to record is that we have a beautiful
athletic field down there at the foot of Harris Street.
We are deeply indebted to all those folks who
helped "see the visions and make them come true."
Amherst is proud of its MEMORIAL FIELD.
