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 1947-1948.

Sl-Ili: .4 The Board of Education GEORGE WALKER FRED I-I. HOGREFE EDWARD R.MENz EARI E COTTON Page 12 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. The Superintendent 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.

The Principal 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.

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 News-Times. 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. From? Roux' D. Bramwell, R. Frederick, D. Poore, M. Darch, G. Niesen, R. Haas, K.

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.

Page 58 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. STUDENT COUNCIL Sfffi771Q.' M. I.. Borowicz j. -Iewett W.

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 future careers. 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.

This department is responsible for many enjoyable extra-curriculzlr zlctivities, "Life of the P41i'iy," the very successful full play, kept the audience in stitches at Snuzzy Cliugene Duvisb and his first love CM2llVll121 Kominisl. This troupe of actors hats gleaned mitny helpful points in stage production from their trips to the Play House, the Hanna, and the Katrnmu theatres, its well its at Bowling Green State University, where they witnessed the world premiere of Lennox Robinsons Irish play 'iThel.i1cliy Finger." "Life of The Party" hx "Go Ye to Bethlehem" onclude Season With Series of One-Act Plays During National Education Week the junior division sponsored a very interesting Know-Your-School program, a project which was the result of many hours spent in inter- viewing teachers, visiting classes and preparing reports. The Christmas play, "Go Ye To Bethlehem." several one-acts. both humorous and serious. and another full-length play in the spring rounded out a profoundly successful season. At the beginning and at the end of the year, a number of students were inducted into Troup 750 of the National Thespian Society, Students who participated in the va1'ious activities of the Dramatics Department are as follows: Dolores Hramwell, Dale Bruce.

Those who heard the high school singers this year really agreed that they sang like a heavenly choir. The chorus made its first appearance at the Christmas Vesper Program. Also at this time the Varsity Singers made their debut by singing Fred XX'aring's arrangement of "'Twas the Night Before Christmasf' This group is composed of Martha Syrowski, Nancy Kaser, ff' Mary Lou Borowicz, Diane Tabbert, Carolyn Vander-sall, Dorothy Moebius, Don Flock, Jerry Menz, -lack Qlewett, and Paul Scharff. The Varsity Singers have entertained many ff groups. including the Eastern Stars and the P. T. A. High point of the year was the Spring Concert presented in May by the Mixed Chorus in collaboration with the freshman and junior high choral groups. A few numbers from this program were "Now Thank We All Our God," "Medley of Popular Songs," "God So Loved the WtJrld," Heavenly Light," and several solos.

Band staged many brilliant performances at the home football and basketball games during 1947-48. The group also journeyed to Medina, where along with the Medina band it presented a spectacular show in salute to the Medina Home-Coming Queen. Eleven members of the organization organized a German Band which entertained for chapel, for the Rotary Club, and for the Business and Profes- sional Women's Club. Several of the outstanding musicians competed in the County Musical Contest at Clearview, in the district contest at Elyria, and in the state contest at Columbus. The entire band participated in the Music Festi- val at Wellington, playing a 15-minute concert. Other bands that attended were Medina, Welling- ton and Rocky River. In the Christmas Vesper Service and the Spring Concert the band presented a varied program of concert music. The most faithful boosters of the band are the Band Mothers, who work untiringly to earn money for new instruments and uniforms. Oboe--L. Buserg t'ld'fi7I8lJ1L. Mueller, W. Hoy, Rubel, E. Dute, 1..

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.
