THE hope of this World lies in its youth-a highly trained,
competent, intelligent group with good character and high
ideals. It was for that purpose that The Hershey Industrial School
was founded, and in that tradition it continues.
As We depart on our various ways - some to iight for a living
freedom, some into industry or to college - We cannot help reflect
the finer qualities of our background. Very few, if any, will drop
by the Wayside, despite War hysteria and abnormal conditions,
because We have been carefully developed in mind and body. Our
training, equaled by very few schools, Will give us confidence
wherever we may go, or in whatever We may do. Perhaps none
will ever rise to become great international, or even national,
figures, but we are certain that most of our alumni will be such
good citizens that Mr. Hershey and the school he founded need
never be displeased with their actions.

S A business executive Mr. Hershey ranks near the top of the list, but we who have lived under his
generosity look to him as a true father. He took us in our early years, fed us, clothed us,. and
watched over our growth. Of greatest importance among the many things he has done for us is our
schooling. He has educated us to go forth into a world of war or peace to work like men who are fully
prepared to stand the test of life. ' '
Knowing that our time of departure from our Alma Mater draws near, we find it hard tosay in
words how warmly We feel about Mr. Hershey and how appreciative we are of his efforts in our
behalf. We sincerely hope that we, like many other alumni of this school, whether soldiers in uniform
or soldiers of production, may be so successful as to refiect Credit upon H. I, S, and upon Mr. M. ,S.
Hershey-its founder and our foster father.

WE, THE Class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-four, in rec-
ognition of his duties performed for our benefit, do hereby
dedicate this Acropolis to Mr. James E. Bobb, the assistant super-
visor of the farms.
Born in nearby Mechanicsburg, Mr. Bobb moved to Harrisburg
when still very young. In 1918 he again moved, this time to Her-
shey. He attended and Was graduated from Hershey High School.
After graduation he attended the Wharton School of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania for three years. After completing his Work
there, Mr. Bobb Was employed by the Hershey Chocolate Corpora-
tion. In 1930 he was transferred to the Hershey Estates, and short-
ly thereafter he assumed his present position, that of being assist-
ant to Mr. P. N. Hershey, in addition to his duties of caring for the
boys on the farm homes. Since he started in his present capacity,
he has seen the number of farms grow from thirty-two to seventy-
two, which now cover an area of about 10,000 acres.
Although his duties are sometimes of an unpleasant nature,
Mr. Bobb has always given each of us a square deal. Known to
his friends and associates as plain "Jim," he has performed his
duties fairly and sympathetically.
To him go our sincere thanks and appreciation for the fine
cooperation given to us during our years of close association.
IT IS to the faculty that we are indebted for many of our accom-
plishments and for much of our growth. At times when the
going was difficult and we ran into trouble, it was they who often
gave us an aiding hand. Not only did they help us with our regular
school work, but in many instances they put forth their best efforts
to guide us in our personal, nonescholastic problems.
This year in particular we are better able to realize the good
work that our faculty has been doing. Our graduates have always
set a commendable record of achievement in after-school life, but
during these war years we can see even better the results of our
teachers' efforts. More than 700 of our alumni are in the Armed
Forces, and the great majority have done very well. Our Service
Honor Roll includes a remarkably high percentage of oflicers and
non-commissioned ratings. Our graduates seem to be able to adapt
themselves to praiseworthy efforts in peace or war, and we mem-
bers-of the Class of 1944 know that much of this success is the
result of the instruction and guidance of our teachers.
As time goes by new faces will join the faculty to replace the
old ones, but we will never forget those who guided us along the
right path to happiness. Their smiling faces will always remain in
our memories, and we will remember them not just as teachers, but
as our friends.
Not on pictrure- Charles E. Dahl, Arlene R. Long, and Dorothy W. Perkins In the sewwe of om
country-Carl J. Crouse, Earl Dissinger, Alfred T. Gibble, W. Lyndon Hess, Piederick D Hite W1l
liam E. Landis, Paul P. Martin, Frederick D. Miller, W. Purnell Payne, Lyle N Perkins Geoige F
Sandel, Daniel S. Seiverling, Clyde P. Stacks, and George E. Yokum. On leave Bengamin I' Olena
and William C. Westberg.
THESE are the people Who performed' the unnumbered tasks
which have helped in our everyday living. They 'saw' that We
were in good health, that We had good food and proper clothing,
and that We had all the things that assured us of proper and pleas-
ant living conditions in our life on "The Hill." A
We are grateful to them for their services, for Without their
help We would have been far less happy and comfortable. We know
of no better Words to express our appreciation to these people than
to say - with deep sincerity - the simple Words, "We thank you."
We'll Find a Way or Make

1944 CLASS SONG
Words and Music
We, the Class of Forty-four,
Now sing our song of praise
To the good man and the great school
That gave us happy days.
Our fellowships and classroom joys
Must now be set aside.
We end our carefree high-school days,
And into life we stride. f
by Lloycl M cCurd'y
So now we leave thee, H. I. S.,
To take our place in life,
Amid the toil and sweat and tears
And never-ending strife.
But we'll come back another day,
Our triumphs to review.
We'll praise again old H. I. S.
And friendships true renew.

ROM sixth grade to his senior year, "Bob" has
been president of every home-room of which
he was a member. Student and athlete, leader
and good fellow, he has not betrayed the trust
the senior class has invested in him.
RANCIS has always been a leader of his
group, both in school work and in athletics.
As our Secretary he again demonstrated his
ability. We sincerely believe that "Mac" will
make good in all that he undertakes.
ff ING'S" personality has been "blaring forth,"
-as he puts it-through the Class of '44
for many years. As a master of ceremonies, as a
true friend, and as a good sport he will be Are-
membered by each individual of the senior class.
" USTY" has shown this senior class what
a real treasurer should be. He has dis-
played his trustworthiness and loyalty in deal-
ing with our financial matters. His record here
indicates success after he leaves this school.

EARLY in the present school year four
of our members enlisted in the Armed
Forces. P. Elwood Rhoads fElectrical
Course - Boyertown, Pa.J entered the
the Armyg Theodore D. Grove CBaking
Course- Mt. Union, Pa.J and Ralph J.
Myers fAgricultural Course-Endicott,
N. YJ entered the Navy, and George L.
Forry fSheet Metal Course - Florin, Pa.J
entered the Marine Corps.
In the 1942-1943 school year no poten-
tial graduates entered the Services until
some time during the second semester.
Consequently there was no diploma diffi-
culty, for the State Educational Depart-
ment had authorized the granting of di-
plomas to those who had satisfactorily
completed three and a half years of work
before entering the Services.
This year, however, the four boys listed
above created a new accrediting problem
by enlisting so early in their Senior year
of school. The State Educational Depart-
ment has so far issued no ruling to cover
this situation, and we therefore cannot
Write authoritatively as to what will be
done in the future about diplomas for
these boys. We know definitely only that
they can not be graduated with their fel-
low class members on May 29, 1944.
This decision may not preclude a later
issuance of diplomas. It is probable that
they will be granted at some time in the
future if the boys involved follow their
trades successfully or do satisfactory
work in similar or related fields, either
while in the Services or in industry at a
We Wish them luck, for an H. I. S. di:
ploma is a certificate of accomplishment
that is to be prized highly. '
At the time of this writing many more
of our class members have entered, the
Services, and it is not difficult to predict
the immediate future of most of us, if our
experience is similar to that of the Class
of 1943. Of the one hundred and twelve
members of that class, there are at least
ninety-six already in active military ser-
vice. Six of the remaining sixteen have
been rejected, and most of the final ten
are under the Selective Service age limit.
The Class of 1943 is surely doing its
share in the service of its country. The
Class of 1944 will be very proud if it can
equal that record.
r CLASS OF 1944 SERVICE HONOR ROLL
C fAs of April 10, 19441
Army Air Force
M arine Corps
M erchcmt Marine
E, THE Class of One Thousand Nine Hun-
dred and Forty-four, possessing many
1-A's and no 4-F's-we hope-do ordain and
establish this document as our last will and tes-
tament, thereby revoking any other obligation
which we have heretofore made public in our
younger, hapless years.
To the Freshman Class we bequeath our
manly, courteous ways so that the faculty will
finally have a reduced detention list.
To the Sophomore Class we leave our un-
canny ability to produce maximum results with
a minimum of efort both at work and at play.
We also bequeath them our wit and humor so
that their young, immature minds will be able
to understand something other than that thrill-
ing comic strip, "Dick Tracy."
Realizing that the school would not other-
wise be able carry on after our departure, we
leave to our worthy successors, the Juniors, the
following indispensable qualities:
Gerhart surrenders his athletic ability to
John Bushman on one condition-that he stops
devouring everyone's pie. So that Superman will
have no hard feelings towards us, Krill leaves
his exquisite figure to Levi Filepass. Glen also
relinquishes his handsome features to Ed Hank-
ins, who can certainly use them.
Torrance Hess leaves his joking manner -
in the form of a full corn crib- to the hog farm
because no one in the Junior Class has the neces-
sary characteristics to receive his peculiar talent.
John Fedako, after carefully considering the mat-
ter, offers to give up his fine scholastic ability to
Bradley Baumeister. Bob Malitzski, after using
his chicken saddle for many years finally decided
to give it, plus the book, "How a Fat Man Can Sit
on Two Chairs," to Edgar Gibbs.
"Jenny" Ryman, who has beaten the bass
drum to a pulp, leaves only a memory to the
Spartans, the memory of the "Johnson Rag."
Craig Mehrmann, after breaking two holes in
the gym Hoor, gives up his avalanching ability
to anyone who is able to stand the work. David
Voigt's journalistic ability goes to Walter Eckley,
and Trueman Betts' courtesy is divided-because
there is so much of it-between Carl Ludden,
Junior, and David High, Sophomore.
Louie DeHart, realizing an acute need, drops
down to the eighth grade and gives his ability
to dress up to none other than the best dressed
H. I. S. boy, Paul Wert. Who else has such a
need? Si Sheafer, after howling his head off at
almost every street corner in three cities, is will-
ing to give his ability to get acquainted to any-
one who wants it. Si almost gave his little black
books away too, but after gazing into the crystal
ball he decided to keep them for future reference.
Since no one person could possibly hold on to all
of it, Bob Wallish finally gives up his personality,
along with his sense of honor, to the whole Jun-
ior Class. Realizing that if he did not give it up
the garden would have a shortage of worms, he
also throws in his ability to be well liked.
Francis McKnifi"s eiiiciency and versatility
go to a fellow in the Junior Class named Har-
ry Kelly. Good-natured Hap Hoerner gives
his sunny smile to Jim Boyd. Will the sun ever
shine again? Lloyd McCurdy, after finding no
one in the Junior Class suitable, skips down to
the Sophomore Class and bestows his musician-
ship upon one John Singley. The class "rug-cut-
ter," Paul Ranck, hands over his dancing ability
to contortionist Yoder. LaVerne Musselman de-
cided that he would give his art ability-in the
form of two tablets of tracing paper-to "Homo"
Ahrendts. Donald Eddinger favors Carl Pautz
with his ambition. No slower, Pautz, or you'll
fall over. Dick Bellis, 12-1's little fat man, gives
his life of luxury and ease at the high-school
over the summer months to Paul White.
"Frank" Krill bequeaths his rich basso to a
struggling Sophomore, Tim Lyons, who needs
it more than anyone else. I-Iarry Young wants
to keep his sportsmanship in the family, so he
gives it to his brother Al.
Over a period of four years our treasury has
accumulated a vast amount of valuable memen-
toes-a rubber cigar, a lorush, a pile of broken
glass-symbolic of our prowess at snowballing
-a retreaded piece of chewing gum, and a copy
of Joe Miller's joke book. All of these precious
possessions we leave to the Class of 1945, not
because we no longer want them, but because we
feel that they want them more. May they guard
these valuable treasures carefully.
As we pass from these halls to begin the
great journey of life, we realize that it would be
impossible to leave all of our blessings in so
little a space. Therefore we hereby give notice
that if we have forgotten anyone in any way,
that person may obtain the needed blessing from
the executor of our will, the Honorable Peter
Smythe, who is empowered from the date of the
aiiixed seal to assign our remaining talents to
the deserving people.
On this twenty-ninth day of May, in the year
nineteen hundred and forty-four, we members of
the class of the same year stop, turn, and attach
our seal to this, our last will and testament.
S FRESHMEN we began what was to become an ever-increasing participa-
A tion in extra-curricular activities-J -V football, ninth-grade basketball,
the band, the glee club, or whateved else attracted our interest. During this
year we had to decide upon a course of study for our senior-high-school years.
Consequently we spent some time reading material pertaining to different oc-
cupations and in visiting our various shops in order to get a better idea of
what we wanted to choose.
We could scarcely wait for our Sophomore year to come. As is the case in
our school, the great majority of us choose trades at the end of our Freshman
year, and we were excited about entering a shop and beginning a new kind of
work. New groupings of boys were necessary, and new friendships were
formed, many of them to continue not only through school but probably
through adult life. Our share in extra-curricular activities increased.
The Sophomore year passed quickly. Almost before we knew it, we were on
the threshold of our Junior year, the one that was to prove the most difficult
for most of us. We were presumed to know the fundamentals of our trades,
and now we were expected to begin to master them. We studied harder, became
more responsible and more dependable. We found time, however, to play a
larger part in school activities, contributing our talents on an increasing scale
to the interscholastic and intramural programs.
At last the coveted day arrived. We were Seniors. Upon us lay the major
responsibilities of school leadership-in studies, in the sports program, in
school activities, and in student government. The Senior year always goes fast,
but for many of our group it was even shorter than usual. Almost from the
beginning of the year, enlistments, Selective -Service requirements, industrial
demands, or accelerated college programs took members from us.
Those of us who left H.I.S. before the end of the school year were amazed
to Hnd how many could not be present at graduation. We could not avoid
thinking of the whole "swell gang" that had begun the year as a group of
Homeboys. Of one thing we feel sure-those who completed their Senior year
here and those who did'-not-we all agree that no matter where we go we shall
never find a better place than The Hershey Industrial School, nor shall we
ever iind a better group of friends than we had here. We shall always remem-
ber our school.

T IS interesting, on this 1954 Homecoming
Day, to again look over the familiar faces of
classmates and to hear their varied stories.
The first person to come to our attention is
the banquet toastmaster, Bob Wallish. Bob had
always been noted for his pride in the coal mines,
and now he is the head of a large miners' organ-
ization which has its headquarters in Washing-
ton. He also holds the important position of pres-
ident of the H. I. S. Alumni Association.
Naturally, the person seated next to him is
Bing McNelly, whose night club in New York is
recognized as a close competitor of the Stork
Club. Knowing, as we do, Bing's abundanzt
knowledge of the fairer sex, we can understand
his success in this line of business.
Who is that laughing so loudly over there in
the corner? I should have known. Who but
Jay Highlands has a laugh like that? By taking
one look at him we can see that nothing short
of his salary as vice-president of a large manu-
facturing firm could supply him with food.
That smoke screen which slowly settles over
the room is the result of a brand of cigarette re-
cently developed by Smokey Pennell. He assures
us that it has the perfect blend. Certainly we
aren't the ones to disagree with him, at least not
as long as he is handing out free packs.
Poss Hess should soon get tired of telling us
how he put Slippery Rock on the map by coach-
ing their football team. He modestly points out
that the Army had asked him to stay on as
physical director of one of their large bases, but
he couldn't resist the typical college town.
Just looking over the faces of the fellows
around me makes it easy to see that Hitler and
Tojo had plenty of reason to call it quits when
they heard that the Class of '44 was on its way
to see them. Besides, after they captured Al
Ritter by shooting his plane so full of holes that
he had to wriggle his ears in order to make a
safe landing, they were convinced that there just
wasn't any future in taking prisoners who never
knew when they had had enough to eat.
This afternoon while watching the Home's
football team give their opponents a good going
over, my attention was diverted by Gordie Ger-
hart, who was busily explaining the rugged game
of football to his five-year-old son. Of course he
spent the time between quarters explaining how
it was done when he played for the Home.
Dizz Arnold and Jim Noland are now co-
owners of an automobile garage in Lewistown.
I was told that during the early days of their
partnership, business was so poor that they had
to put out a sign which read "We Sell New Tires."
Super-salesman Ray Evans soon convinced cus-
tomers that a thorough overhauling was needed.
We were going to have a dance tonight, but
we couldn't decide whether we should have Jenny
Ryman's or Lloyd McCurdy's orchestra, so the
idea was abandoned.
A few minutes ago Trueman Betts tapped me
on the shoulder and in his polite manner asked
for my back senior dues. It is fine to have such
a loyal treasurer, but that is overdoing it.
John Fedako didn't miss the opportunity to
give us a long lecture on why the political party
which he favors is the only government suitable
to American principles. We feel certain, after
hearing him speak, that anyone voting for the
opposite party must be completely insane.
Reynolds and Krill have recently completed
their fourth year as members of Fred Waring's
Glee Club. Krill had considered stepping into
Frank Sinatra's shoes, but his feet were too big.
For several years we have all seen Donald
Eddinger's name on the screen as chief sound
man for M. G. M. Also in the movies is La Verne
Musselman-Walt Disney's understudy.
Eugene Clifford and Red Hendricks conduct
a small electrical repair business in Allentown.
They take endless pleasure in telling about the
time they were asked to repair some minor dam-
age at the city's power plant and ended by black-
ing out the entire city.
Dashing here and there and ending in almost
inconceivable positions is our candid-camera bug,
John Eicherly. He is still "snap happy."
Shorty Sheaffer and Cogswell still can't
understand why we aren't going to have a floor
show. They are afraid they will be the laugh-
ing stock of the town if their play-boy reputa-
tion doesn't get them at least six new addresses.
Lytle and Harner are well established as
top-notch radio comedians. They have earned
well their title of the, "Dead-pan Twosomef'
Because of their unchanging countenances a side-
show offered to bill them as "The Only Two
People to Survive the Ice Age."
Mike DeHart probably came a greater dis-
tance to this reunion than anyone else. It must
have been hard for him to break away from his
little island in the South Seas, where he is known
as King Mike, and return to the confusion of the
Another traveler from afar is Ben Emen-
heiser, who took time out from his job as man-
ager of a large silver-fox farm in Canada to re-
turn for a visit to his Alma Mater.
Our class is well represented in the baseball
world. Jed Roodhouse has just finished another
successful year as a member of the New York
Giants. And in the only position in which we
could imagine him is Hank Voigt-publicity
manager of the Yankees.
The banquet slowly breaks up and the fel-
lows return to their homes, but not until everyone
promised to meet at the end of another decade.

EVERYONE knows that sports build body, mind, and character. H. I. S. has been do-
ing its part in helping to realize these desirable goals. This year, as well as in other
years, H. I. S. has shown the familiar ability and spirit for which the school is so well
known. Although not all of the interscholastic sports have returned, there is keen ri-
valry in our intramural program, which is ve ry popular here on The Hill. Softball, basket-
ball, boxing, and wrestling are among the sports included in our intramural program.
These sports make wholesome competition possible for many more of our boys than
the number participating in any interscholastic program.
Football returned this year after being dropped for a year because of transporta-
tion difiiculties. Mention should be made of the persistence of the student body and the
willing cooperation of the administrative staff which made it possible for football to re-
turn to our campus. Even though the training period and the game schedule were short,
the fellows on the squad gave it all they had, and the student body gave the squad their
I The basketball season was successful, as usual. We were particularly pleased by
this success because the basketball team was Mr. Gibble's last coaching assignment before
he entered the Army in February.
We feel that all those who participated in our athletic program this year should
now feel more secure and better prepared for the great responsibilities which lie ahead.
HANKS to the cooperation of the administrative staff and the enthusi-
asm of a representative group for the student body, we were able to have
football this season, but because of a late start we were able to play only a
With only three weeks until the iirst game, coaches Hoar and Gibble se-
lected the squad instead of having the usual try-outs. This selection was very
difiicult, for some decisions had to be based upon potential ability. There was
only one varsity man to start with. All the rest consisted of those who had been
on the Junior Varsity the year before last and those who had never been out
for football before. For the short time they had, they made a remarkable
showing by winning three of the four games, losing only-by a one-touch-
down margin-to the undefeated, Conference Champions, Hershey High.
The Class of '44 is proud of having nineteen members on the squad, and
we hope they have set a fine example of sportsmanship for the underclassmen
who will be taking their places.
This year was the first time in the history of H. I. S. that we played
Hershey High in football. Both student bodies hope to continue playing each
other and to keep a closer relationship between the two schools. The winner
of these contests is given a Cocoa Bean trophy which was presented by our
The senior class of this year's squad wish to thank the coaching staff for
the clean type of sportsmanship which they have taught them. We are proud
to have served under such fine leadership. To the coming' teams of H. I. S.
we wish continued success and enjoyable seasons.

HIS year, under the direction of Mr. Hoar and Mr. Hagaman, the boxing and wrestling tourna-
ments were continued on the same basis as last year's matches.
These tournaments serve as a body-building and morale-building' factor amofng the students of our
school, and we hope to see this program continued in the future.
War has curtailed some of our activities.
It has taken from us some of the sponsors of
activities, but in spite of handicaps the
activities have survived-some With alterations
in their programs, others with new sponsors. All
have been affected by the War, but all of them
have been continued. Through activities the
home-boy has an opportunity to become a Well-
rounded individual, mindful of the better employ-
ment of his leisure time. He can acquire special
training in various fields, develop hobbies, gain
experience in self-government and group action,
and learn much that will be of value in his post-
school years. A A

HE Student Senate of our school is an elective body which was formed
with the intent of instilling in the students a sense of initiative and re-
sponsibility which will benefit them when they leave school. It is a training pro-
gram in which the children of a democratic country learn by experience some-
thing about the workings of a democratic government.
The chief duty of this organization is to assist the administrative staff in
straightening out matters which concern the farm units and the school itself.
The Student Senate has tried in the past to interpret the wishes of the
student body and to convey them to the administrators for their consideration.
Not limiting its interest to the positive reactions of the pupils, it has at-
tempted to point out weaknesses in the activities and conduct of the students
and has, by various methods, attempted to improve these conditions.
Assisting the Student Senate in this work are five councils which are
selected from the major sections of interest within the school. These councils
each select three of their members to represent them in the Senate and to
carry their interests to the Senate.
Items typical of those brought to the attention of this year's Student Sen-
ate were the collection of a breakage fee to cover damages created by the boys
during the school year, the conduct of the boys during athletic contests and in
the auditorium, and the sale of Christmas Seals within the school.

URING the 1942-43 school year it was decided that to keep The School
Industrialist functioning smoothly it would be necessary to form a new
staff at mid-year instead of near the close of school. The change was neces-
sary because so many of the senior staff members left school to enter college
in accelerated programs. This year the same practice was continued. In
January Mr. Mincemoyer, who has been the head of the staff for the past
three years, gave the test for new members.
The lndustrialist Staff has done a very good job in bringing school news
to the students, and it has also served its purpose of creating good will be-
tween our school and other schools.
The school paper is used as an outlet for the ambitions and abilities of
boys who have writing talent. They are picked according to their scores in a
test and also by means of articles which must be written before a boy is
eligible for the staff.
As this year's senior class leave, the vacancies they cause on the staff
will again have to be filled by underclassmen. We are certain that these
boys will be able to carry on in the traditional manner.

ATE last spring Mr. Yokum entered the army, and Mr. Young became
our new-director. He promptly ordered new music and prepared for
summer rehearsals. Many hours were spent learning the- twenty-odd new
The Hershey Service Roll dedication gave us a chance to do our part by
singing two patriotic numbers. Next came an appearance at an afternoon
community church service, and that evening we gave a complete concert at
the Spring Creek Church of the Brethren. Finding this concert too long,
We revised the program for the United Brethren Church concert. These were
the only' concerts in the first semester, not many as compared to the years
before gas rationing. f '
The few concerts and the absence of the Forensic League contests
removed much of the incentive that helped produce the long line of excellent
glee clubs of former years. Nevertheless, that our concerts were performed
ably was evidenced by the compliments we received.
In spite of handicaps the Glee Club sang for our Sunday services. Many
of our boys were on the football and basketball squads, and soon the seniors
began to leave for the armed forces or for jobs. The loss of these veterans
was keenly felt. Nevertheless, we feel that we have rendered a service to
H. I. S., and We will long remember the good times we had as members of
one of our most popular organizations.

NDER the splendid leadership of Mr. J. Atlee Young, the Choir has
shown itself to be one of the school's outstanding extra-curricular activ-
ities. After the departure of Mr. Yokum the Choir substituted ably for the
Glee Club in singing during Sunday morning services and proved itself a
very definite asset to the school.
Besides acting as a substitute for the Glee Club, the Choir gives younger
boys experience and helps to mold them into future musicians. It also widens
the experience background of older fellows who are members of both the
Glee Club and the Choir.
This organization is to be commended for the fine spirit which it has
shown at all times.
During this year the Choir will lose many seniors, but their places can be'
filled very easily by the many capable underclassmen who are progressing
The Class of '44 takes this opportunity to wish Mr. Young and the Choir
a very successful future. We hope that he and his Choir will do as fine a job
in the future as they have been doing up to the present time.

USIC is a morale builder, and under the direction of Mr. Young the band
J' has been doing its bit to help boost morale. Because of the war the Band
cannot attend as many contests and parades as it did in the good old days,
but you can be sure it is still a potential prize-winning organization.
The Band added much to the color and zest of the football season this
year with their snappy strains of martial music and their colorful marching
drills. It was a treat to watch them perform.
Every year the Band holds a spring concert in the Community Building
to entertain those of our community who appreciate good music. The concert
always includes a few novelties as well as stirring marches and heavier music.
The Bandqis a foundation organization for music in our school. The boys
are started as soon as they enter H. I. S. Instrumental instruction is given to
those who show that they possess the talent and the patience required to be a
good musician. It is here that the embryo musician develops. Out of the band
come most of the boys who make up the Spartan and Symphony orchestras.
Mr. Young has many replacements for the band who will fill the vacancies
left by this year's seniors. There are ten seniors this year, but they should
scarcely he missed because of the quality of the younger boys waiting to
replace them. A
HIS YEAR we' welcomed to our faculty a new member, Mrs. Aungst. She
has been in charge of the Symphony Orchestra in the absence of Mr.
Yokum, who is on leave to the United States Army. Mrs. Aungst is to be
commended for the line job she and her organization have done in the past
The orchestra is doing a great job in interpreting the works of the masters,
which is really a very difficult job. The quality of the music that they present
to the school is excellent, considering the short time that they have to pre-
pare it. The boys are to be admired for the long hours of patient practice and
conscientious effort that they put forth in preparing this music. Because of
the time it takes to prepare a classical concert, the orchestra does not per-
form for the school as often as the other musical organizations.
Every year the biggest job of this group is to set a musical background for
the Commencement exercises in the spring of the year. The stirring prelude
is always the opening of our Commencement program.
If the Symphony Orchestra could play for the old masters, we are sure
that our boys would have no need to be embarrassed. We think the masters
would be well pleased by the way their music is being interpreted by youthful

L OWLY in everyone's eyes but his own, the Freshman begins the
seemingly slow and arduous climb up the scholastic ladder. Emu-
lating the action of upperclassmen, he begins the first step away
from the juvenile stage. .
Upon becoming a Sophomore, his course selection may turn
him to shop Work, or he may continue classes as a commercial or
an academic student. Mentally he matures slowly, although his
physical development is rapid. He begins to practice self-discipline
- becoming less of a problem to his teachers and houseparents -
and senior-high-school responsibilities are assumed.
As he becomes a Junior, he is struck by the idea - "Only one
more year till I'm a Senior." He begins the first of the two most
important years of high school. 'By this time he has acquired wider
interests, has become more active in the extra-curricular program,
has finally realized the importance of his studies, and is looking
forward eagerly to Senior responsibilities.
S THD Sen1o1s slowly penetrate into the cold, cruel world, their places must be taken in the posi-
tions of iesponsibxlity within the student body. We believe that the up-and-coming Juniors will
be able to assume these places of responsibility with ease and carry out all the aims which have been
set for them by this yea1"s Senior Class.
HE Sophomores are neither choosing their trade, nor are they ready to take the last step before
going out on the job. They are going into a period ripe for greater participation in sports, activ-
ities, and studies. May they continue to grow with their jobs and keep clean the good record they thus
far have established.
HIS year again produced an 'outstanding Freshman Class. These boys have already proved their
mettle in intramural athletics, musical organizations, and in other fields of recognition.
We of the Senior Class feel that the Class of 1947 is worthy of filling the place vacated by the
