Class Motto - Less than our best is failure
Being the first senior class to complete every grade in the
Hershey Industrial Junior-Senior High School, we stop and look
back through the sundial to the big, cream-colored schoolhouse
where we grew in mind and in body.
Herein lies a brief idea of the lives
of a group of boys about to depart from
school and begin their various journeys
on the broad highway of life. Very few
should drop by the wayside, for most of
them have, with their utmost strength of
body and mind, endeavored to develop
themselves into young men of whom their
beloved benefactor, Nlr. M. S. Hershey,
can be proud. These young men of to-
morrow should at this time be well pre-
pared to take their positions as useful
citizens of our nation. Perhaps none will
become an international or even a national
figure while traversing the long path of
life, but certainly none should prove un-
worthy of the opportunities he received
while astudent atThe Hershey Industrial
School and thus bring shame to his school
and to his honored foster father.
MR. MILTON S. HERSHEY
Having given all that he had to us, Mr. Milton S. Hershey's only
wish is that we use his gift wisely. Each departing senior wants
to make good and to bring happiness to Mr. Hershey. If, in this
small way, we can repay him for the good fortune that he has
brought to many unfortunate boys, we shall have done our best
to show our gratitude to him.
MR. EARLE H. MARKLEY
We dedicate this 1941 Acropolis to Mr. Earle H. Markley, a
man whose understanding and influence have often changed
wrong ideas to right. His untiring efforts to help boys with their
wants and needs we all appreciate. Through our senior high-
school years in particular he has had much to do with the scho-
lastic activities of most of us. This dedication is intended as
an expression of gratitude to him for his efforts in our behalf.
MR. D. PAUL WITMER
The "square deals" that Nlr. D. Paul Witmer has always
given to the other person show why he is so well qualified to be
the superintendent of our great school. If we can mold our
lives according to his pattern of high ideals and perseverance,
we know we also shall go far.
This group represents those persons who through the course
of our high-school days have guided our destinies. Their firm,
kind hands have helped us over the rough spots of adolescent
youth and have prepared us for the tasks ahead.
These men have helped us far more than do most school
administrators. They have guided us not only as school men,
but, along with our house-parents, they have done their best to
direct our lives properly along physical, moral, and spiritual lines
as well. They have striven honestly to fill as best they could the
gaps caused by the loss of our natural parents. We owe them
lt is our hope that they, through their contacts with us, may
feel the gratitude which we cannot express in speech or writing.
BOARD OF MANAGERS
Behind the scenes of our school life stands a group of men
who do more for us than we fully realize. The Class of '41
Q takes pride in saluting these men who have given their un-
tiring services, Ioyally and willingly. They have understood
our wants, needs, desires, and ambitions. They have done
their best to give us as much as they could of the good things
Mmm. umm in life. lt is to them, under the ever-present and benevolent
Clnlrmln 8. Founder
guiding spirit of Nlr. Nl. S. Hershey, that we are primarily
indebted for the constant growth of educational opportunity and wholesome living
conditions so characteristic of this great school4home. Nlere words cannot express
our appreciation and thankfulness for their giving to us the high ideals by which
we are endeavoring to mold our lives. '

Ourfaculty--how much more fittingly, ourfriends. These are
the people who have come to teach us the highest of all arts--
the art of living. Yet some of us may pass from the H. l. S.
portals without ever knowing the real companionship and help
that all of the faculty members are willing and able to give.
Some of us, on the other hand, have had frequent contacts with
it. We are those who are in activities and those who are in
trouble. To know and to appreciate our teachers to the fullest
extent one must know them not only when they are in the role
of class-room instructor but also after class when the others have
left. The teacher sheds his guise of disciplinarian and reveals
his true personality as counselor and friend. Through these little
intimate associations our concept of reality and the outside world
is broadened and developed. Our teachers do this for us, know-
ing that we have been deprived of our parents who normally
would have given us such help. We salute you, our friends--our

As we travel far and wide on life's broad highway, the memories of our days
in The Hershey Industrial School willcling to our hearts. So let us pause and
review some of the happy memories which have faded into the past.
Although our freshman year differed little from years gone by, it was never-
theless exciting, and it was therein that many of our dearest memories origi-
nated. Who can forget the ninth-grade basketball team, where many of our
present stars began their climb to the varsity squad, or the science field trips
which everyone enjoyed? All these helped to make our freshman year a
brilliant beginning of our high-school, life.
Our nextstep forward was quite different from any before, as we no longer
remained one distinct group. Instead, we divided ourselves into three groups,
academic, commercial, and vocational, according to each lad's personal choice.
Some chose to be mechanics, others salesmen or bookkeepers, and still others
ventured into the languages and sciences. The training for the work which
we would do after we leave The Hershey Industrial School was then begun.
Who can forget that first day in shop, each fellow wearing a pair of stiff,
new overalls, or the complete bewilderment of being seated in back of a type-
writer, wondering what to do first? But all too soon the novelty faded away,
and we settled down to make our sophomore year a firm foundation for the
rest of our training. 1
When we returned in the fall of 1939, we were not the same group of happy-
go-lucky lads who only a few months before were sophomores, but we were
now more serious juniors, looking not only at the past and present but also
into the future.
Gur first duty was to select our class officers. Needless to say, the fellows
elected did a splendid job. They served, not only in leadership, but they
proved themselves to be worthy businessmen as well.
The highlight of our junior year was the Junior Class Stag Party. Each
homeroom section entered a softball team and after a series of hard-fought
games, 11-A came through as champions, once more keeping the title in the
vocational department. I
Only one obstacle stood between us and our final year- the final examina-
tions. But they too were passed with little difficulty, and at last we were
ready to step into the most cherished year of all, our senior year.
The Class of 1941 has the honor of being the Hrst class to complete all the
grades, six to twelve, in the new junior-senior high-school building.
On the athletic field, in the variousmusical organizations, and in the many
other activities the senior class was well represented, each representative
doing his best to uphold the standards of the school.
After the election of senior class officers we began planning for our Halloween
party at which we had the fairer sex as our guests. Games, refreshments, and
dancing made up the program. Later we had a Valentine dance, and still
later came the biggest and best of all parties, the annual Senior Class Party.
After receiving our pictures, class rings, and other school-day tokens, we
waited for the grand finale of our high school days- Baccalaureate Services,
Class Day, and finally the most exciting and memorable of all, Commence-
ment. We received our diplomas, symbols of our accomplishments in the
glorious and exciting years gone by. ,May we always look at them as a high
award for our achievements in The Hershey Industrial School.
As we enter into the broad fields of life, we will long remember the kindness
and generosity which everyone connected with the school has shown to us.
As we leave the portals of this great institution, may each one of us prove
himself worthy of being called a Hershey Industrial School boy.

Upon this crude sheet of parchment, on this twenty-ninth day of May in
the year nineteen hundred and forty-one, anno Domini, the distinguished Class
of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-one records its last will and testament for the
benefit of those gay souls who have been fortunate enough to cross the path
of this highly phenomenal class.
To the Juniors we leave our collectively brilliant intellect, hoping that they
will not deviate from the path set by us.
To the Sophomores we leave our general wit and humor, since their juvenile
minds understand nothing but the ridiculous and "Crash Comics."
To the Freshmen we leave our hope that they follow the advice of their
elders rather than their own immature desires.
Because we are generous, we do not wish to bereave the humble Juniors of
any of our many indispensable qualities. Consequently, individual bequests
follow. Bratton leaves his sportsmanship- plus a pair of brass knuckles-
to William Witmer. To abash Superman, Mohler leaves his physique to his
brother Chester. Hummer surrenders his athletic ability to Frank Saksek.
Hatfield wanted to leave his goodnaturedness in a gym locker butfinally de-
cided to leave it to Ivan Dietrich.
Snyder lends hissmile to Weary Hummer. fWho needs it more?J LaVerne
King bequeaths his sense of humor to Robert Pike. McDaniel leaves his wit
to Jack Bennett in order to keep "The School lndustrialist" on both feet.
Engle leaves his sincerity to Philip Keller.
Bailey wills his "rug-cutting" ability to William Maxwell, and Schwebel his
musical ability to Robert Pike. To the remnant of the Spartan Orchestra
after we leave, Robert Beitzel leaves two old victrola needles and three-fourths
of Lombardo's "Beer Barrel Polka." Simpson surrenders his journalistic
ability to Dave Collier, plus a tablet of paper which Dave may chew on while
trying to figure out why there must be such a thing as a "dead line."
Dower relinquishes his curly hair to George Maxwell so that he may later
demonstrate the effects of curling irons for "The Woman's Home Com panion."
To prevent procrastination on German homework, Stepp leaves his yardstick
pencil to the Junior Academics. Joe also surrenders last October's copy of
"True Confessions" to those Juniors who feel lonely on privilege night.
Kinnaird wills to his intimate chum, Charlie Maxwell, his new book, "Howto
Win Girl Friends and Influence Their Parents." Schmoker Beitzel donates
his unused three-year-old comb to Arthur Parker.
Our Treasury surrenders to the Class of '42 the following cherished memen-
toes- a rusty key to Temple's diary, four second-hand victrola needles, a
dental appointment for February 29, 1936, and a torn, one-cent refreshment
ticket for the Hershey Park.
Our entire class wills to all underclassmen, the faculty, the administration,
the house-parents, the board of managers, the Hershey High School students,
and the townspeople of Hershey a reminiscence of friendships, good-times,
Thus, as we depart on the road of life, we stop, turn, and affix ourseal to this
Dear Joe, l
Tonight, while at the 1951 Commencement, my mind naturally wandered
back ten years. Strangely enough, many of our boasts for the future seem
to have come true.
Whitecar's "Syncopated Jam Cats"iare now making a movie. Bailey's
new night club, "The Bomb Shelter," Gust had a gala opening. Jay Smith
is his chief bouncer. To speak of excitement, LaVerne King won a Carnegie
Medal for his single-handed capture of "Bull-faced Herman," Public Enemy
Number One. "The Philadelphia Be,ord's" ace criminal reporter, Harry
Simpson, wrote up G-Man King's thrilling exploits so well that he was made
news editor. Kenneth Hatt is treasurer of the Hershey Trust Company.
He can settle down and get married atilast. Pennell, our only Eagle Scout,
is Scout Executive for the Harrisburg Area.
We have two preachers now, Joe. lReverend McClure was just elected
Alumni Chaplain, and Reverend Temple ends five years as a missionary in
India. Another of our professional classmates is Tom Cohoon, now a "stiff
dresser" in Mt. Carmel. l
Believe it or not, our class turned out three teachers. Hoffmaster, now
head of a household of four, teaches history at Beading, Hoffman teaches
German and Pennsylvania Dutch at Paradise, and Benedict, although wanted
by the Fuller Brush Company, now heads the Dale Carnegie Institute of
Public Speaking. Sergeants Francis Stepp and Arthur Massey are Marines
in China. ,
Our new farm-home has as house-parents Mr. and Mrs. Jack Bratton. The
Beitzel Brothers are also in the farming business. Bob sells farm machinery
in Lancaster, while Russ uses his brothers products near Manheim. William
Kain runs the Hershey Bose Garden.
We turned out some athletes, too. The A's Charles Hankins was "Most
Valuable Player in the American LeagLie" for 1947, and The Giants' football
team has another "Bruiser" Kinnaird.
We "rate" in the business world, too. l Funk and Seed co-edit the "Lebanon
Daily Times." General Electric has electrical engineers Light, Galbraith,
and Atkins. Lehman, Grady, Schwebel, Long, and Dunleavy operate the
"Blitzkrieg Destruction and Construction Corporation." They have revo-
lutionized the business by Grady's idea of using dive-bombers to do the de-
struction work. Charles Smith and Spigelmyer have a confectionery shop in
Palmyra. By the way, Charlie's down to only 267. Tellet and Widmann
operate radio station WH IS, here in Hershey. Jeff married a local girl, thus
making himself and Travis McDaniel brothers-in-law. Davis and Bowman
are manufacturing their latest invention -A "Shocking Sal," a robot house-
wife. Bigler and Schmeck run aservicei station in Harrisburg, with a "Home
for Aged Autos" on the side. ,
Well, Joe, l believe that l have covered most of our classmates' activities.
Write to me about yourself and come to, see me. The wife and l are living in
the Park Side Apartments.
Your old chum and classmate, I

OUR GRIDIRON MEMORY
Looking back on another H. l. S. football season, memories long to be re-
membered linger in our hearts. We see a group of young, inexperienced
fellows coming out for the first try-outs. H. l. S. lost twenty-six lettermen,
and a grave problem was on hand. After a few weeks of thinning out, the
Hoar-Landis machine started to take shape. The fellows, though green in
experience, were in heart "raring to go." They knew that they formed the
lightest team ever to represent the H. l. S. and they also knew that they faced
the toughest schedule in H. I. S. football history. Nevertheless, by the out-
come we can see that our team was green- yes, but game. The two most
outstanding games were those against Reading and Stevens Trade. Out-
playing their opponents in three periods, the Spartans dropped a 6-0 heart-
breaker to Reading. Again meeting their old rival, Stexqens Trade, they
scored first to take the lead, but in a neck-and-neck battle they failed in their
attempts for the extra points and lost 14-12. 1
Although the final scores this year are slightly different from other years, l
am sure our quarterback will always remember his team as the smallest but
one of the gamest and most willing teams in H. l. S. history.

Led by high-scoring Captain Jack Bratton, the Spartan five wound up what
was probably the toughest schedule in H. I. S. history with a record of eleven
wins and eight defeats. I
Displaying the spirit and fight typical of H. I. S. teams, the Brown and
Gold oagers went through the season losing only two of its eleven home games.
The squad of ten men was composed of seven seniors and three underclass-
men, and three of the seniors formed Ithe backbone of the starting quintet.
The season was climaxed by a de'isive victory over a stubborn Hershey
High team. This was the initial coutIt game to be played between the two
The past season will not soon be forgotten by those who cheered for and saw
H. l.S. play under their very able coadh, Mr. Gibble.

H. I. S. 1940 BASEBALL TEAM
ln 1940 baseball returned as an H. I. S. varsity sport after afive-year lapse.
The season was considered a success because-of the fact that we won seven
games while losing only five. ,
Members of the class of 1941, then juniors, held down fdur of the starting
posts, and many others were reserves. Coach Hoar expects a stronger team
in 1941 as a result of the experience that the returning players received last
year. He also stated that we were in one of the strongest cbnferences in this
region, the Pennsylvania Scholastic Baseball League. Everybody enjoyed
the season greatly, and the forthcoming season is greatly antrci pated by many.

Call it jivel Call it swing! Call it jazz! Whatever you call it, that is
what our popular dance orchestra plays. The Spartans are often engaged
for dances in and around Hershey. Furthering the instrumental ability of the
students is the main purpose of this activity. The Class of '41 salutes this
organization which plays such a large part in our modern school life.
Musical appreciation has developed greatly through the Symphony Orches-
tra. Bach or Schubert might not feel exactly comfortable in their graves
while listening to their music played by this organization, but the orchestra
has been improving steadily. The stringed instruments come from Mr.
Payne's class, while the wind and percussion instruments come from the band.
GLEE CLUB A
-'This is without doubt the most prominent extra-curricular organization of
all. Started in 1935 under Mr. A. Leon Reisinger, who was replaced in 1939
by Mr. George Yokum, Jr., this group travels approximately tive hundred
miles on visits to different parts of the state to give winter concerts.
Under these two directors the glee club has for three consecutive years placed
first in the Pennsylvania Music and Forensic League.
The purpose of this organization is to develop vocal talent in the school, and
we feel that it has achieved its goal admirably.
Our choir teaches its members musical appreciation and helps them to be
musicians. These members improve our church services, and, most important
of all, they feed all our other musical clubs.
This year as usual, under the direction of Mr. J. Atlee Young, the combined
glee club and choir played an important part in our pageant and other musical
At the beginning of this school year the band was at a terrific loss. Many
positions were left vacant by last year's seniors, and even the position of leader
was open. However, under the new but capable leader, Mr. J. Atlee Young,
the band quickly replaced its former personnel and was again marching, play-
ing, and drilling like veterans for the coming football season. The band has
been active not only on the football field between halves but also in many

The Student Senate is made up of fifteen members, three from each of the
five councils. These Senators in turn elect their officers, who preside over the
meetings and appoint committees.
Throughout the period of three years during which the association has been
functioning it has shown definite improvement each year. As a result, more
authority is constantly being given to this body.

Mr. Dissinger's "The Boy lndustrialistu of 1933 became "The School lndus-
trialist" in 1936. lt now has a monthly circulation of 1800 copies, with a mail-
ing list of 650 going to 24 states and several foreign countries. -
At first articles were contributed by staff members only. Later, reports
were made by boys from each farm home on the events of the units. Now
reports are contributed by staff members, farm reporters, faculty members,
and prominent guest writers.
This annual performance is now an institution in our school. Starting
early in our history, it has been continued up to the present day.
The pageantserves as one outlet through which the boys of our school show
their appreciation for all that has been done for them.
There is no age limit to which our boys must conform. Participants in
this activity are chosen by a Bible test and by the interest shown by them.
Our praises unto thee rise to the sky.
We're loyal H. l. S.g our faith in thee shall never die.
There comes a time when we bid thee good-bye.
Hail, hail, our Alma Materp may your spirit true be ever nigh!
Lift your voices, singing of the school you love so well.
Send your voices ringing over every hill and dell.
Swing along, with a songg singl your praise with voices strong.
l Words by Robert Evans, '32
We have come to the beginning of a long trail. We havefinished our high-
school days and are about to set forth on the highway of life. But before we
begin ourjourney, we pause by the wayside to listen to the strains of ourschool
Alma Mater. As the harmony from the choir dies in the distance, we lift our
voices to join in the melody.
High into the blue sky over Patt's Hill our voices sing praises to the school
we have learned to love so well. Voices thunder forth our pledge of faith to
The Hershey Industrial School. The halls respond in echo like the heavenly
choirs from Mt. Nebo. Hail, our Alma Mater. May yourspirit ever be near
in heart and mind!
The sun sets in the west as our voices ring into the night. The soft winds
strip the clouds from the blue, star-woven sky. A bright moon steals up over
the mountains to the east and casts gleaming rays on our marching forms.
The highway rolls over the horizon, and the ethereal blue picks it up to carry
it into the clouds. Our voices roll in crescendo as we swing along with a song
in our hearts. We march along to our new goals. Our hearts and minds
stretch forth to grasp at our hopes and ambitions. Praise and thankfulnes
flow through our veins for our beloved benefactor. '
The chorus reaches a peak - Hail, hall, our Alma Mater! Trumpets blast
forth in a last glorious chord. Far down the valley and through the hills the
voices ring in echo.
Once again the night is still. Asoft wind pulls the clouds over the heavenly
bed of stars to close their eyes. A cock'crows to hail the sunrise, as our steps
carry us over the horizon into life. l
As the summer months of part work, part play, and part vacation drew to a
close and September and autumn rolled around in the year 1940, the Juniors
became wrapped up in books and various extra-curricular activities.
In school work many of the fellows excelled, but it was in activities outside
of school work in which they were best, as seems to be the case with many
H. I. S. boys.
ln football some of the fellows who made the team were Frank Saksek, Dick
Martin, George Russ, Harvy Forry, Red Witmer, Ed Piasecki, and Ed Beam.
ln music the Juniors contributed such maestros as Harry Lowry, Dick
Faranow, Arthur Myers, and Bob Pike.
Basketball and baseball held positions of major importance among the
Juniors, and not a few were interested in these sports.
To the Swing Club, Typing Club, and various other clubs, the Juniors con-
tributed many members.
All through the year the Juniors were gradually gaining a more prominent
position, and in the spring of 1941 the Junior Class had a meeting to select
officers. With the realization that at the end of next year they will have
completed their school days in good old H. I. S., they are looking ahead with
great anticipation to the forthcoming year. Good luck, Juniors.
After a two-months' lapse between the end of their Freshman year and the
beginning of their Sophomore year, the Class of '43 plowed into their school
work and extra activities with a marvelous display of skill and ambition.
Opportunities presented themselves to the Sophomores, and they were quick
to take advantage of them.
ln the music and literary fields they contributed many promising lads who
can and will go far in the remaining years which they have at H. l. S. The
Spartan Orchestra, the Symphony Orchestra, the Glee Club, and also The
School lndustrialist staff, were greatly reinforced by members of the Soph-
Along the line of sports they gave to H. l. S. such fellows as John Shana-
brook, Carl Huntzinger, Martin Kuhn, and Mike Filepass. There are many
more Sophomores who also participated in sports for H. I. S., but with due
apologies to them their names have not been included here.
lt has been said that the Sophomore year is the easiest year for a high-school
student to go through. Some think this statement is correct: other fellows
think it is all wet iso to speakj, but, hard or easy, the Class of '43 did their
best to get through with flying colors, and, it might be added, they did a swell
FRESH MAN CLASS-1944
After a short summer lay-off, the Freshmen began to realize that they had
reached the crossroad of their school years. They had to choose among the
Academic course, the Commercial course, and the Vocational course for their
Meeting new subjects, which were comparatively unheard of by them until
this year, was the main thing the Freshmen had to cope with.
Along other lines of high-school life they were as successful as in scholastic
achievement. Freshmen were in the orchestra or band, some were out for
sports, and many were active in the clubs which H. I. S. has to offer.
As the time drew near for the end of the year, the Freshmen began to think
that since a standard of good achievement had been laid down by the Soph-
omore Class which had gone before them, they would have to prepare them-
selves over the summer to take a somewhat keener interest in scholastic and
athletic attainment and also contribute members to the different musical or-
ganizations and other clubs.
