Here and on a farm in ad- joining Lancasfer Counfy he spenf his boyhood. As a young man his am- bifion led him fo seek his forfune in candy manufacfuring. Affer fwo failures he achieved success wifh a caramel facfory in Lancasfer. This business he sold for SI,000,000, wifh fhe infenfion of refiring fo fhe life of a "genfleman farmer." Buf fhe sfafure of his characfer would nof per- mif a life of mere exisfence, and a few years lafer he sef up a facfory amid fhe cenfral Pennsylvania cornfields fo "make a liffle chocolafe." His unshakable confidence and dogged persisfence assured his success. In I909, af fhe suggesfion of his beloved wife, Mr. Hershey founded The Hershey lndusfrial School and accepfed for admission four boys. Such a venfure as fhis, creafed fhrough fhe benevolence of such a man as ifs founder, could nof buf succeed. As his business grew, Mr. Hershey gave more and more fo "his boys" and in I9l8 furned over his enfire forfune of 360,000,000 fo fhe insfifufion. Today nearly 2500 orphan boys have been faken in, cared for, and properly frained in fhe ideals of good living. As long as he was able, Mr. Hershey himself supervised fhe adminis- frafion of our school - his greafesf pride. lf was always wifh our happi- ness or welfare in mind fhaf he made his decisions regarding H. I. S. His posifion as Chairman of fhe Board was fhe lasf office he gave up, and by fhaf fime he had fully provided for fufure adminisfrafion and manage- menf. His passing lasf fall was mourned by all who knew him or his accomplish- menfs. We especially, fhe benefacfors of his greafesf kindness, realize our loss. Buf his nafive benevolence and unselfishness have remained wifh us in spirif, an inseparable parf of fhis living monumenf which he creafed. If is fo fhe memory of our fosfer-fafher, Milfon S. Hershey, fhaf we, in humble grafifude and in a spirif of deep loyalfy, dedicafe our Acropolis. w f V i li 6 If jim?

BOARD Of MANAGERS The deafh of Mr. lvlilfon S. Hershey, our Founder and Chairman of fhe Board of Managers, was no reason fo slacken fhe pace sef by our fosfer-parenfs, fhe members of fhe Board. In facf, Ivlr. Hershey prepared againsf any disorganizafion when he passed away. Because of fhe fore- sighf of fhaf generous man, fhe fall of I944 found Ivlr. P. A. Sfaples insfalled as fhe new chairman when Mr. Hershey re- fired from fhaf office -abouf a year before his deafh. To fhe Board of Managers, because of fheir efforfs fo help us gef as much benefif as possible from our sfay in The Home, we are greafly indebfed. We exfend fo fhem our mosf sincere fhanlcs.

The healfhy, well-dressed l-lomeboy is proof of her efficiency. W. ALLEN HAMMOND PRINCIPAL The principal of our school is Mr. W. Allen Hammond. a man we consider well qualified for fhe posifion. Some of fhe fhings which so qualify him are his willing- ness 'ro help ofhers, his sense of humor, and his abilify fo masfer a given sifuafion. Mr. Hammond has done much fo make our school fhe fine educafional insfifu- fion if is. and we wish fo exfend our grafe- ful fhanlcs fo him for his consfanf inferesf in our welfare. fhe considerafion always uppermosf in his mind.

Eancf Affer fhe usual sfruggle of replacing lasf year's seniors, fhe Band. under fhe direcfion of Mr. Young, again survived fhis yearly problem and worked up a good year-round program.

This year, as usual, fhe concerf included some novelfies, some marches, and, of course, a few selecfions on fhe symphonic side. Preparafion for fhis annual musical offering is one of fhe maior proiecfs of fhe Band. This year fhere will be more seniors fhan usual leaving fhe Band, buf as is also 'rhe usual case, fhere are up-coming replacemenfs. We are sure fhaf fhesel boys will capably fill fheir posifions in fhe Band and confinue fhe good qualify of music presenfed by if. Because oT The paper shorTage The School lndusTrialisT has Tewer pages Than beTore The war, buT conTenT was acTually increased by using smaller Type. The number oT subscribers seems To increase consTanTly as alumni, par- enTs, and oTher Triends oT The school appreci- aTe iTs value. During The war all l-lomeboys in T The Services received iT Tree. A Typical issue averaged abouT I75O copies, wiTh abouT I5OO being mailed. Keeping subscribers inTormed was by no M" Mfncemoywf advfseff and David means easy. A special problem was The rapidly changing addresses oT alumni in The Services.

Bowman, editor Each member oT The sTaTT deserves crediT Tor The work he puT inTo The lnclusTrialisT To make iT The success iT was. Much was done by The TaculTy chairman, Mr. Mincemoyer. To him goes a very special "Thanks" Tor his parT in publishing our school paper. This year The sTaTT will change near The end oT school. conTrary To The war-Time prac- Tice oT reorganizing in mid-year. UTmosT conTidence is TelT by The senior sTaTT members as To Their successors' abiliTy To conTinue The high TradiTion oT This organizaTion. Jam This group oT vocalisTs under DirecTor J. ATlee Young's supervision, is composed OT boys Trom The TiTTh To The TwelTTh grade, in- clusive. The higher parTs are sung by The younger boys and The lower parTs by The older boys, who also are members oT The Glee Club. The Choir has alTernaTed TrequenTly wiTh The Glee Club aT Sunday morning worship services. The churchgoing sTudenT body will always remember The Choir Tor iTs exceIIenT rendiTion oT anThems. - Now ThaT The war is over, The organizaTion was able To go To Lebanon To presenT a sacred Mr. Young, directorg David High, tenorg and Doris Rexroth, accompanist concerT in The Church oT The BreThren. The boys were complimenTed highly. This organizaTion Teaches The younger members To become more appreciaTive oT music and gives Them more experience Tor Their musical worlc in The TuTure. IT also gives The older members experience in singing wiTh a group who have higher-ranged voices. This year The Choir will lose many seniors, buT we are noT alarmed. We lcnow ThaT un- derclassmen can Till The gap mosT ably. The Class oT I946 will always remember Mr. Young and his group oT boys Tor Their unTiring eTTorT and Their Tine spiriT. C Senafe This year The SenaTe was placed under The leadership oT Mr. Thural Brehm, who had been a houseTaTher aT Rolling Green and is now guidance insTrucTor. AT The beginning oT The year The Voca- Tional, Senior-l-ligh, and Junior-High Coun- cils were disconTinued, and we were To have a Farm-Home Council and a SenaTe. Elec- y Tions Tor The Farm-l-lome Council were made. and aTTer discussion by members wiTh Mr. Hammond, Mr. Hershey. and Mr. Brehm, iT BVU" Smith' P'e5fflenff and Mf- 3fel1ffb was decided To eliminaTe The SenaTe also. Supemso' The Farm-Home Council's TirsT iob was To draw up a consTiTuTion Tor The new sTudenT governmenT. Under This consTiTuTion The Farm-Home Council became The SenaTe, and The Tour oTTicers became The ExecuTive CommiTTee. Four sTanding commiTTees were Tormed-Privileges, AcTiviTies, 1Public RelaTions, and PubliciTy. Also included in The ConsTiTuTion were The duTies and pro- cedures oT The individual Farm-Home Councils. The oTFicers-Byron M. SmiTh, Pres.: William Swingle, V. Pres.: PeTer Di STeTano. Sec.: and Claude LighT. Treas.-sincerely hope +ha+ proiecTs begun This year will be carried on To compleTion Through The renewed vigor oT nexT year's SenaTe. glee ew As is The cusTom each year, Mr. Young, our direcTor, ordered many new pieces and im- mediaTely seT To work Teaching Them To The TorTy-odd Glee Club members. Since gas raTioning had ended and con- cerTs could again be scheduled Treely, aTTen- Tion was given Tirsl' To a concerT oT sacred music. Long, hard hours oT pracTicing on The parT oT members is The answer To The success The Glee Club has had all year in giving con- cerTs aT lndianTown Gap, Cressona, LiTiTz, Chambersburg, and righr here in l-lershey, To menTion buT a Tew. Wherever The Glee Club Paul White, bassg Mrs. Hoerner, accompanistg and Mr. Young, director sang They were grearly praised, which TacT shows ThaT This group sTill is one oT The mosT popular organizaTions oT The Hershey lndusTrial School. Many oT our church services were made more enjoyable because oT The sacred music presenTed by The Glee Club. When The occasion arises, The Glee Club presenTs a concerT oT secular music. Such occasions are exchange assembly programs and The annual concerT oT secular and sacred music usually presenTed each spring. As we seniors leave This Tine organizaTion, we Take wiTh us memories oT many enioy- able Trips. We hope our successors will enioy Glee Club membership as much as we did. Spafdawi WhaT do you wanT? Music sTyled by Wo- ody l-lerman, STan KenTon, Tommy Dorsey, Les Brown, or Van Alexander? WhaTever iT is, you name iT, and The SparTans have iT on hand ready To play like real masTers oT The kingdom H" ' oT swing. Since iTs beginning eighT years ago, This or- ganizaTion has gone a long way in working iT- selT up To The high sTandard iT now mainTains. The answer Tor iTs success is pracTice, To which Dale Musslemanf SaXiM'S- Hveffiew leader: The members devoTe Their Tree Time unspar- and John Singley, trumpet ingly.

The senior SparTans wish Their underclass colleagues well. Judging Them by Their aT- TiTude and eTTorT during The pasT year, we are cerTain oT Their TuTure success. C 6 T This group did noT perTorm wiTh The regu- lariTy of oTher musical organizaTions, buT This TacT does noT discrediTiTheir eTTorTs.

For These reasons we exTend To This organi- ieading violinist zaTion our appreciaTion Tor iTs TuncTion as one oT our desirable school acTiviTies. AT The beginning oT This school Term iT was ThoughT ThaT There would be no sym- phony orchesTra. However, sTudenT inTeresT in such an organizaTion was suTiicienT To iusTiTy a Trial, and a Tew monThs laTer Mrs. T-loerner selecTed The sTudenT members. MosT oT The boys are younger Than Those in our oTher musical organizaTions. and The group is smaller Than iT should be. NeverTheless, an inTeresTed nucleus has been Tormed, and a good sTarT has been made. We can loolc Torward, a Tew years, wiTh some confidence To a Tull-sized, ouTsTanding, high-school symphonic orchesTra.
