AS a symbol of good will toward men, Mr. Milton S. Hershey stands out with great
clarity and brilliance. Because of his humanitarian philanthroples and hls work
in the interest of the common man, he is respected and admired Wherever he is
known. But to us - his heirs and living evidence of his most generous impulse-he 1S
more than We can express in Words. He took us as strangers, alone and in need of help.
He gave us food, shelter, and a iine education. He did more. He encouraged us .along
many other lines of activity-sports, music, art, drama, entertainment. Anything to
make tus happy he gladly gave. Through him and the capable men with Whom he sur-
rounded himself, We were taught how to live, how to Work, and how to play.
Now We are leaving H. I . S. - some to go out to insure the privilege to live as free
men, others to turn the Wheels of production a little bit faster to insure victory soon-
er. But no matter Where We go, We will always remember Milton S. Hershey-a humble
man Who had a vision, reached for the stars, and brought a bit of heaven down to earth.
LAST fall Mr. M. S. Hershey announced that he was retiring as active chairman of
the Board of Managers of The Hershey Industrial School and that he was passing
his mantle on to Mr. P. A. Staples. This change was the specific wish of Mr. Her-
shey, who said: "I am in good health, but I can't expect to live to be a hundred years
old. I do not want any disorganization when I pass away, and I feel that I have selected
a good man. I want to relieve myself of minor details and have the organization
function well when I pass away. I wish to see it strongly organized and go on along
progressive lines irrespective of what happens to me."
The man in whom Mr. Hershey's faith has been placed is by no means a beginner.
A clear-thinking, hard-driving executive, Mr. Staples has built a very fine reputation
from an equally fine foundation. Born in Portland, Maine, in 1883, he attended the
public schools there, Protestant Episcopal Academy in Philadelphia, and Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology, from which he received his B. S. degree. He has worked
with the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, J. G. White 8a Co. of New York, Stone and
Webster Co. of Boston, and W. S. Barstow 85 Co. of New York. Since 1915 he has
managed the Hershey interests in Cuba.
With such a background we feel sure that he will carry on much in the manner
of Mr. Hershey and that fine leadership will continue. We salute you, Mr. Chair-
man, and give you our best wishes for your continued success.
CHAIRMA.- Of THE BOARD
IQNOWN to students and faculty alike as "Uncle George," Mr. George O. Gerth is one
of the most popular and well liked men on The Hill. As "Chief of Morale" he 1S al-
ways ready to help us in any Way he can to lighten the tedium of study. Motion pic-
tures, special shows, and many other form-s of entertainment are procured by him, as
well as fine historical and scientific films.
Everywhere about the school his work is always in evidence. Spotlessly clean, com-
fortably warmed or cooled, our well-lit and tidy classrooms and halls are a tribute to
his work as head of maintenance. Visitors are enthusiastic about the immaculate con-
dition of our school. All this is due to his pledge of nothing but the best for H. I. S.
Even more than for all these accomplishments he is liked purely as a fine friend and
a "great guy." He is always ready to give of his time and energy to help the fellows
in any situation- getting ready for a class social function, supplying properties for
assembly programs, pinch-hitting with movies whenever the occasion arises.
It is with deep gratitude for his constant efforts in our behalf that we, the Class of
1945, dedicate our Acropolis to Mr. George O. Gerth.

WHATE ER IS BEST ADMINIS-
TERED IS BEST Pope
BOARD Of MA AGER
BEHIND the scenes of our every-day school life stands a group of
men who have a larger place in our lives than most of us realize.
These men, the Board of Managers, are the nucleus that make
it possible for the intricate chocolate business to run on Well oiled
bearings. We, the Class of '45, take great pride in saluting and giv-
ing our most sincere thanks to these men who loyally and willingly
have devoted their untiring services to us.
They have always .realized and understood our Wants, needs,
desires, and ambitions, often before We made them known. At all
times they were ready to help us out of some rut or over some obstacle
in our path. They have unceasingly done their best to give us as much
as they could of the good things in life.
It is to these, our foster-fathers, under the ever present and bene-
volent guiding hand of Mr. M. S. Hershey, that We are primarily
indebted for the constant growth and expansion of the excellent
educational opportunities and wholesome living conditions that are
so much a part of this school-home.
TO direct the activities of an organization as large as The H ershey
Inclustrial School takes a great deal of resourcefulness, patience,
and understanding on the part of those who are the directors. It
is a big job, and it requires big men, big intellectually and morally.
These are the men who do it. Although their title is that of an ad-
ministrative group Who pass out directives and judgments, they are
much more than that. They are counselors, helpers, and-above all-
good friends. Very rarely does one ever stop to think of all these men
do for us, but unsung as they are, they are due a large measure of
praise for a job well done.
Because of the fact that they represent varied executive branches,
they can pool their different viewpoints and opinions and in that Way
solve their problems more completely. Always Working for the better-
ment of the school and its students, they try to be as fair as possible
in their dealings with us. In all their efforts they keep one goal in
mind-a square deal for all concerned.
To these men we extend our thanks and appreciation for the guid-
ance and the help they so freely gave. We hope we have not caused
too many headaches for them, and we are sorry if We did. In all their
Work with us they have set a shining example with their high ideals
and good morals. Remembering these things and these men, We can
not go wrong if We follow their precepts and examples.
After we have gone, we shall look back with pride and gratitude to
those who gave us our start. We shall not forget them and the good
they have done. We are happy to have been under their infiuence and
to have had them for our friends.
E Q-E. ,.pZ f. .
HIS is our faculty. These are the people who have been
T both instructors and friends as they guided us through
our schooling here at H. I. S. We shall never forget
their unselfish and patient efforts as they tried to show us
the Way to worthy manhood and citizenship. Through them
We received much help in preparing ourselves to lead a
good life in the years to come, years during which we shall
no longer have their constant interest in us to rely upon.
They have been central figures in making us what We are
--mentally, spiritually, and physically.
Probably even more than as teachers We shall think of
them as friends, for in addition to their efforts in further-
ing our education they have often helped us in solving our
extra-curricular problems. From their knowledge and
fund of experience We learned much that will be of value
in our future lives.
To those of the stai Who are not pictured above-
especially the men now in our armed forces-We also ex-
tend our thanks. We have not and Will not forget their con-
tributions to our lives.

CLASS HI T0
OUR years ago our thoughts turned toward
the future. Our hearts yearned for the Grad-
uation March, our diplomas, and the all-
glorious day. We were but mere freshmen with
courage to face the coming years with all of our
ability. The new experiences were great, but
though we were green we never quit our stride.
Who couldn't recall the junior-varsity football
squad, Champered 'by the infantile epidemicj the
ninth-grade baseball team, and the field trips-
all contributions to leadership? Then as the war
clouds broke, we had to make the difficult choice
of our life work. We were the first H. I. S. class
to face such an experience.
Those inseparable memories passed as we
divided into three groups-academic, commer-
cial, and vocational-but still all sophomores.
Wasn't it a'n honor to be in senior-high school,
to wear out the kinks in our overalls, to dust off
our Latin books, and to try to taper ball bear-
ings? This was a great year, and we were one
step nearer graduation. There was no football
season because of war-time transportation re-
strictions, but we were represented in the school
sports that we had. Plenty of sophomores were
on the jayvee basketball team, and we had our
share of boys do well in the intramural boxing,
two of them-the Moyer twins-later going to
Harrisburg to fight in the Golden Gloves Tour-
nament. We were no longer "greenies." We were
now making a substantial contribution to all im-
portant school activities.
The next step toward our final attainment was
the junior class. Individualism began to be
strongly manifested in sports, music, and other
extra-curricular activities. Special skills and
talents were more fully developed, leadership
characteristics appeared, and even our scholastic
work improved as most of us began more fully
to realize the value of a good education. Foot-
ball was resumed with a difhcult schedule, and
our stalwart juniors helped to bring the inex-
perienced football team to an almost undefeated
season. Jayvee basketball was excellent, and
several of our members made the varsity squad.
Junior class strength was now a definite power
and force in H. I. S. activities. We were learn-
ing and growing, preparing ourselves for the
leadership responsibilities of the school which so
soon were to be ours as seniors. The peak of our
junior year was the Junior Class Stag Party.
Softball provided the competition in which the
mighty Preps, combined with an equal strength
of Commercials, blasted the Machinist-Auto
Mechanic squad in the play-offs to take the
championship for the first time.
As our final act of the year we elected a true
leader, Jim Mohr, to receive the mantle on Class
Day. The presentation and acceptance were well
done, and we were well pleased. We were eager
to assume the duties of our senior year.
At last, ignoring the threat of our final
examinations, we arrived at the beginning of
our fourth year. Now we were seniors. We elected
as our ofiicers a good foursome-first-string on
our strong football team and first-string in
leadership quality. With their help we enjoyed
the social life of the senior year-the Hal-
loween, Christmas, and Valentine Dances. Many
of our group left us at mid-year to seek experi-
ence in employment, to join the armed forces,
or to continue their education in college.
Soon the Senior Prom was here. It was good to
have our last party together, meeting again
classmates who left during the year. Graduation
wasn't complete without gratitude to the Al-
mighty in Baccalaureate Service, Class Day,
and Commencement. We were handed our
diplomas and in our hearts were saying, "Fare
you well, O school! God bless you! We leave you,
but we won't forget you."
MUSIC BY JACK OUNAN
WORDS BY BAXTER HEIL
Now we, the Class of '45,
Do sing our song of praise
In honor of the school and men
Who made such pleasant days.
We'll never know how to express
Our praise to H. I. S.
No matter where our paths may lead,
Her name We'l1 always bless.
A sense of sorrow fills our hearts
As we prepare to go,
But even though we now must leave
We want you all to know:
A finer school there never was -
Nor ever shall there be-
Its spirit will abide with us

S is the custom, year after year, each class
writes a prophecy. The task of writing it
befell this luckless chap, so after a bit of
bickering I at last took my seat, and with the
mateiials at hand produced the following manu-
The writer of this page usually projects him-
self into the unknown dimensions of time and
finally stops ten years in the future, or he takes
a journey to the musty chambers of Father
Time and reads the volume that records the
happenings of the year ten years hence.
I can do neither of these as I do not possess
the power of pronostication, nor do I have a map
which can direct me over The Unknown to the
residence of Father Time. So, after waiting two
weeks for the Ahrendts dz Haines Trinket Cor-
poration to send me a gazing crystal Qcharged
to the treasuryj I write:
Gazing into the beautiful silver crystal, which
finally clears after quite a bit of polishing by
Nelson King, I see none other than M. D. Carl
Ludden Crshould be horse doctorj entering his
beautiful seven-story hospital, office, and resi-
dence combination, which he located beside the
Brooklyn Memorial Cemetery. He likes to stay
close to his former clients Cmore appropriately-
suckersj. I see "Maggie" doesn't shovel the ice
off his walks, but I suppose he has to drum up
Gazing deeply, we break into the happy home
life of a former '45 graduate. It's none other
than George Sherman with his wife and their
five---ten---fifteen--faw, they're too many to
countj children. We all thought George would
be in Hollywood by now, but you know how bash-
ful he is around pretty girls. Besides, the ma-
chinist trade is paying oif. It must be!
Now the crystal's fading. I can't imagine what
will come next. Now it's clearing. Low and be-
hold! There's Constien running down Fifth
Avenue with a herd of beautiful girls running
after him and ripping parts of his clothes to
shreds. Don't tell me he's become a famous
groaner, for I know he never had anything more
tha'n a frog croak. I see now what the cause is.

seems that one of our classmates will have a

is. It's Maestro Eckley, that tromboning trou-
badour from Philadelphia, giving out with some
red-hot, slip-horn jive with none other than John
Ounan lending a hand in the first-trumpet slot.
"Red" just couldn't play the "Elks' Parade"
You know, I'd have sworn "Red" would even-
tually wind up beating a typewriter as editor-
in-chief of the New York Times, not stamping
his brains out to some down-beat rhythm that
rivals even the famous "Spartan Shuii'ie."
I'm nearing my work limit, so I'll have to
hurry the crystal along. I see Shanabrook still
studying "What To Do When Ink Smearsf' He
was studying that when he was in "The Home."
And there are Mr. and Mrs. Al Young, trying
to put a basketball team together. How about
lending them a player, Sherman? They need
only one more.
Bert Moore has a newspaper and is thoroughly
enjoying the article which describes the catas-
trophy he caused by forgetting to turn the Phila-
delphia street lights on. Guess what I just saw
on the sporiis page? That none other than Levi
Filepas is finishing his fourth consecutive sea-
son bruising the opponents of the Green Bay
Packers into submission. Also on the page, in
big type, is the 'story of John Bushman's coach-
ing career. He just finished coaching Hickville
to their first victory in ten years.
On the opposite page I see an advertisement of
John Storz' night club, the famous "Hole in the
Wall." Storz has quite a few assistants from
the Cla'ss of '45. Al Gawlas is the dancing chorus
instructor Cimaginelj, and of course James
Zazzie is the official custodian of the mops. Boyd
and McClellan are the dignihed co-bouncers.
Jim Mohr, with Tait Douglas as his coadjutor,
is completing his frugal plans for the quotidian
happenings of his hum-drum life. CUse your
dictionary for this one, I had to.J
No senior class would be complete without at
least one of its members returning to our school
to work as a housefather. According to the crys-
tal, our representive in this field of life will be
the one-and-only John Rineman. Last, but not
least, the crystal shows Bruce Gill and his 12-C
gang sstill in detention hall for the English test
Now the mystic crystal fades into space, leav-
ing the fate of the rest of us for anyone to ima-
gine. As for me, I'll wait those ten years and
'rind out for myself.
E, the outstanding class of this nineteen
hundred and forty-fifth year of our Lord,
do solemnly swear this to be our last will
and testament. Considering the sound minds, the
few 4F's, and the pleasant memories we take
with us, we bequeath to the underclassmen the
few tasks that we have left undone.
To our succcssorls, we leave all our abilities and
traits so that they may do as good a Job as the
Class of 1945 did while in H. I. S.
Several of the outstanding seniors of this class
relinquish their abilities to a few of the under-
The football and basketball teams leave all
their plays and equipment to next year's squads
with the hope that they too will have highly
successful seasons. Individual bequests are as
Levi Filepas leaves his line-plunging tactics
to either Charlie Madeira or Dernald Wade.
William "Pappy" Walsh turns over his "Auto
Mechanic Hands" to Doran Pugh fmaybe some-
one will donate to either of them a can of Mione
Don Hess, the Joker, contributes his "corny"
ways to good old H. I. S., for at times it needs
humor of his kind. Edgar f"5' x 5"'l Gibbs
gives his "superstructed" bench to James Eisen-
Walter Eckley, Walter Douglas, and Harry
Fosbenner hand over the ofiice and "Grandma"
Stacks to any juniors "Uncle George" selects
to iill their places. "Red" Eckley also 1'elin-
quishes his journalistic ability to Dave Bowman
and his musical talent to John Singley.
Fred Douglas' good nature and Jim Mohr's
athletic ability go to Jim's brother, Gene. Nor-
man Shaver turns over the reins of the Chris-
tian Knights Council to Byron Smith, while
Bradley Baumeister lends some of his scholastic
ability to Dave Bowman.
George Sherman and William Morton give
their dancing technique to "Chet" Doutrich and
Elmer Wise. John Storz' dressing talent goes
to Johnnie Scheaifer.
Harry Fosbenner leaves his efiiciency and
business abilities to Ralph Greer. John Hess
leaves his blushing face and big smile to Marlin
Goodyear. John Kerstetter forwards his booklet
on good manners to all the younger genera-
tions of this school. His personal sense of cour-
tesy goes to Monroe Williams.
Harold Hacker and John Bushman leave to
Jack Mock and Ralph Scheaffer their "wolfing"
and "two-timing" traits.
Baxter Heil leaves his recordings f"Roll Out
the Barrel," etc.l to the president of next yeai-'s
Dance Club. fMake use of them fellows, for they
are pre-war records.J "Pep" Schell gives his
energetic characteristics to Horace Lightcap fa
better duplicate couldn't have been foundl.
Veryl Constien hands his Carlisle address to
Charles Hill, while his "Man-Mountain" physique
goes to freshman "Mike" Snyder.
Bryan Smith and Henry Adrendts bequeath
to Adrian Taylor their combined artistic abilities
with complete confidence that he will do a fine
job for the school. Ahrendts also turns over
his collection of lip-stick cases to the War Sal-
"Al" Young and "Jim" Wise bestow upon Clin-
ton Birchill their accuracy of swishing the twines
for the Spartans, while William Swingle is
given the honor of succeeding them on the foot-
Harry Kelly's singing voice goes to Harry
Sherlock, even though the former is a baritone
and the latter a tenor.
John Rineman gives Harold McCurdy his
sports-writing ability, hoping "Dutch" will keep
H. I. S. students and alumni informed about our
William Gunderman and his staff of photo-
graphers hand back the photo room to Mr. Shu-
ler, knowing that from 'now on he will let only
experienced fellows do the photo work.
For a final individual bequest, "Al" Young and
John Bushman were with great difficulty per-
suaded to leave the H. I. S. basketball 'squads of
the future their famous pre-game beauty equip-
ment. It was with a strong feeling of personal
loss that they parted with their combs, curlers,
hair oil, powder puffs, and other beauty accessor-
ies. But no sacrifice is too great for H. I. S.
Having collected all of our odds and ends, we
donate the following to the scrap box of the
Junior Class: One worn-out text-book Cwe took
it easy on our books, but we did study them at
time-sl, a' few bent paper clips, a iiattened tooth-
paste tube, the latest edition of "Magic Comics,"
a burnt-out flash bulb, and a retreaded piece of
Orbit chewing gum.
To the faculty, ad-
ministration, and a-
dult school perlsonnel
in general, we hope H
to leave as we depart 'U ' 1
more happy memo- 94
ries than sorrowful
ones so that they will
look back and remem- I
ber the Class of 1945
as one of the Hnest
groups that have pas-
sed through the doors
of H. I. S.

THE ELEVENTH CLASS
T0 GRADUATE EROM
"JIM" was elected president of our class
because of his ability as a leader.
President of his homeroom all the
Way through high school, president of his
farm home for two years, and co-captain
of the 1944 football team, "Jim" served
us Well. We're sure he'll be a leader in life.
JB USH" has done a good job assisting
"Jim" with class problems. He was a
chief "Why-can't-We?" man in our
class meeting. In addition, he was a mem-
ber of all the major sport activities. We
all will remember him as a good sports-
man and a good leader.
"TAIT" ranks high both as a student
and an athlete. His duties as our
class secretary were not especially
heavy, but they were Well done. A thought-
ful, level-headed, and fair-minded boy,
his opinions were always welcomed by his
"SMITTY" is another of our class offi-
cers who has done his job Well. He
served on different committees to
help prepare for our many activities. We
thank him for all he has done to make our
senior year a success. His duties as treas-
urer he handled with dispatch.

THE year 1944, among other things, proved to be the outstanding
season in the history of football at Herslzery Imlustrzfal High
School. The Spartans rolled over seven opponents - Hershey
High, Stevens Trade, Carlisle, Middletown, Shippensburg, Lewis-
town, and Carson Long-and dropped only a 13-6 decision to the
York High White Roses. Coached by, Ralph Hoar and Paul Kleinfel-
ter, our Brown-and-Gold gridiron representatives formed one of the
strongest teams in Central Pennsylvania, and the two mentors should
be congratulated on the fine job they did in molding this team from
a group of green though willing boys.
This season was the first time a full schedule was played since
1941, and only nine of the players pictured below were ever on a foot-
ball field before. Nevertheless, coaches and players alike really went
to work, and the results of their efforts can be seen in the fact that
only three opponents scored on the Spartans for a total of twenty-
seven points, while the Imlustrialites were amassing 167 points.
Some of the highlights of the season were the Spartans' 7-0 victory
over Hershey High, blemishing Carlisle High's unbeaten record, and
the slam-bang, 52-0, triumph over Carson Long. Another highlight
was the War Bond All-Star game in which six Brown-and-Gold clad
players - Filepas, Bushman, Smith, Boyd, Swingle, and McClellan-
participated for the County. Industrial High was highly honored
when Filepas and Smith were named co-captains of the county squad.
About twenty-five members of this past season's team were seniors,
and many Inclustfrial High banner-bearers are asking what
next season's squad will be like with only one really sea-
soned player, Gene Mohr, coming back. Our answer is that
with underclassmen like Charlie Pealer, Johnny Shealfer,
Rojas Cjust to mention a fewb still around, the '45 edition
of the Spartans won't be anything to breeze by. Coach
Hoar has done it before, and he'll do it again.
Perhaps a word or two should be given to "Mac" Aich-
ele's Junior Varsity which, although it played only one
game Cbeating Lebanon, 13-75, provided a testing ground
for future varsity material.

WITH an excellent football season as an incentive for them, Hershey
Industrial Highls' Brown-and-Gold clad courtmen brought to a close
what was undoubtedly the most outstanding year in the history of
sports here on "The Hill." Under the tutelage of ex-homeboy "Mac"
i4ichele, '39, the Spartans hung up a record of fourteen wins and three
Coach Aichele, who succeeded his former tutor, Al Gibble, built this
high-scoring, fast-breaking combination around two veterans - Al Young
and Johnny Bushman. With an abundance of 1943-44 junior varsity ma-
terial on hand, he developed a court machine that bowled over every oppo-
nent on its schedule at least once. The Spartans met eight diierent high
schools and proved themselves to be one of the most well-balanced teams
in this part of the state by beating such teams as John Harris, William
Penn, Lebanon High, and Hershey High.
This season's cage team took to the hardwood in a big way by winning
the first eleven ball games on the schedule before being halted by John
Harris, 37-35. They won the next three but closed the season by dropping
decisions to Lebanon and Hershey High.
Coach Aichele began the campaign with his 11-man squad composed
entirely of Seniors. However, in January Don Hess entered the Army Air

next year. We hope that they will attain as much
success as did the 1944-45 squad.

'ROUND THESE, OUR PASTIME AND
OUR HAPPINESS WILL GROW.
BECAUSE of wartime conditions and the farming out of former duties
to individuals, the Student Senate has become largely an advisory
body, its chief duties being to give suggestions and to influence and
evaluate student opinion.
Senators are chosen by an indirect system of voting. Each homeroom
and farm home elects representatives to the various councils, which in
turn choose from their respective membership a group of boys to repre-
sent them in the Senate.
The councils receive suggestions from the student body. Any absurd
schemes or ideas are rejected immediately, but those which seem to have
value are considered and passed on to the Senate, where the ideas are
tested as to their soundness. Any plan which stands the test is passed on
to the administrative staff, which has the final decision. A plan or sug-
gestion which has the full approval of the Senate is likely to be accepted
by the staif. It is through this system that students can add their bit to
the solving of school problems.
Although not entirely new, the mid-term change may become an estab-
lished principle in our government organization. Brought on by necessity,
because of the loss of seniors at mid-year, the different groups elect in
September and then reelect in January.
Perhaps the major accomplishment of the Student Senate during the
current school year was the realization of a plan for more complete under-
standing and better cooperation between the administration and the stu-
dent body. Five boys-three from the Senate and two at large-now meet
with the executive stai to help discuss and solve the problems of our
school. The beginning has been favorable, and we hope that succeeding
Senates will do much toward the betterment of our school.
S DE TS NATE
I DU TRI LIT TAFI:
NOT only does The School Imlzastrialist keep its subscribers Well in-
formed on news about the student body, but it also devotes much
space to our alumni. Every month it seems as though more and more
space is being dedicated to our former "Homeboys" in the armed services
so that they may keep in contact with their schoolmates and know what
they are doing.
In this respect the entire stai -and especially Mr. Mincemoyer, the
faculty chairman-deserve much credit for diligently pondering over
every scrap of information in search of some tiny item of interest. Also
as an extra service and to express our appreciation for what they are
doing for us, each month's issue is sent free of charge to about 900
alumni in the fighting units of Uncle Sam. The total subscription list
of about eighteen hundred names is the best evidence of the successful
effort being put forth by those engaged in this activity.
Following the custom of the past few years, a new staff was formed
at mid-year instead of near the close of school. The change was made at
that time in order to compensate for the loss of senior staff members who
left school at the end of the first semester to enter college. We are sure
that the underclassmen who have been chosen to iill these vacancies will
carry on in the high tradition that is a characteristic of this important
This year marks the twelfth anniversary of The School Inclustrialist.
During this time it has served as an outlet and a proving ground to
develop the abilities of our boys who have writing talent. As each year
rolls around, the school can take greater pride in pointing out the fine
work done by those who produce The School Imlustrialist.
"Semper Paratusf' as well as being the name of a very fine march, very aptly
B A applies to the Band. Always ready to do their best at football games, public
functions, and parades, or' to perform individually as soloists, the bandsmen can
be depended upon to render stirring music. To these fine musicians, under the leadership of Mr.
Young, we say thanks for the lift their music gave us.
These Sophisticated Gentlemen of Swing' and their director,
P A R T A N S Mrs. Aungst, are our contribution to the jive-happy, swing-
crazy youth of the school and surrounding towns. Well
known for music both sweet and hot, they are always in demand when only the best is wanted. Able
to work as a whole or in sections, they can also stand UD and '09-ke S0105-
grades, the smaller boys singing the higher parts and the older boys sup
plying the lower notes to four-part music.
This organization is under the direction of Mr. J. Atlee Young, whose untiring efforts give to
younger fellows the experience which will benefit them later when they join the Glee Club.
These boys are known especially for their splendid services in church.
The choir is composed of a group of boys ranging from fifth to twelfth C rl 0 l R
bid for high honors as one of the best. Under the patient
direction of Mr. Young the popular organization attempted
the most difficult program since its creation in 1935.
A highlight of the Christmas season was the singing of carols throughout Hershey on Christmas eve,
and the climax of' the year was the Spring Concert, which was, as usual, well done and greatly enjoyed.
Although the war took many singers, the 1944-45 Glee Club G I- E E C I- U B
SYMPIIO Y ORCHE IRA
This organization, although not often heard by the student body, is by no means idle. Under the su-
pervision of Mrs. Aungst, they are making classical music enjoyable to the boys at H. I. S.
Classical music is difiicult, and we cannot but admire the members of this organization who work
long and hard to give to us a creditable rendition of the work of the old masters.
Discussions about etiquette, sociology, boy-girl relationships, and
the like-in addition to Christian principles-made this organiza-
tion of great value to many of us.
CHRISTIAN K IGHT COUNCIL
NATIONS, LIKE MEN, HAVE
THESE are the underclassmen-Juniors, Sopho-
mores, and Freshmen-who comprise the great
majority of those Who participate in activities of
so much interest to those in school or which attract
the attention of the public and make them interested
in our school. It is true that the responsibility of
leadership rests largely upon us, the Seniors, but it
is equally true that leadership is without value un-
less there are many followers to make our leadership
effective and to prepare themselves, in turn, to lead
those Who follow them.
We take, as Seniors, what we think is pardonable
pride in our accomplishments, as We compare them
With those of classes Which preceded us. We feel
that We have bettered-at least in some respects-
the records of those Who went before us. What We
are prone to forget is that progress at H. I. S. will
not cease with our departure. On the contrary, it
will continue to expand and improve as succeeding
classes surpass past records. It is With this thought
in mind that we salute the underclassmen for their
accomplishments of the future.
