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. '
Always mindful of our needs, fhey unceasingly devofed

and a wholesome environmenf, bofh of which played maior
roles during our formafive years in preparing us for life affer
school. We face fhe fuifure wifh a confidence .iusfified by
fhe fine fraining we have had.
H. I. S. MATRON
The hisfory of H. I. S. is inseparable
from much of The life of Mrs. George E.
Copenhaver, Mafron of our school. The
wife of our firsf superinfendenf, she
served us af his side from I909 unfil his
unfimely deafh on February ll, 1938.
Few, if any, members of fhe Admin-

closely, for among her ofher dufies she
is in charge of bofh our food and clofh-
ing. The healfhy, well-dressed l-lomeboy
is proof of her efficiency.
W. ALLEN HAMMOND
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.
The adminisTraTive sTaTT is a group oT well-chosen men
who serve as an advisory board and governing body oT The
school. I-Iowever, These men also serve in Their capaci-
Ties as heads oT various deparTmenTs which help The school
To TuncTion properly. To see ThaT The boys are Ted and
cloThed, properly disciplined, and ThaT Their homes are made
more comTorTable and happy To live in are a Tew oT The Tasks
which conTronT These men.
The TulTilmenT oT The Tasks menTioned above requires
men oT marked qualiTies. All oT These men possess The
necessary qualiTies in some way or oTher. UndersTanding
and quick-Thinking minds, TaTherly aTTiTudes, and sTerling
characTer are buT a Tew oT Their praiseworThy TraiTs.
From The day we enTered H. I. S. unTil now, as we are
abouT To say goodbye To The halls oT our greaT alma maTer,
These men have rendered Their services eTTicienTly and
generously. They have meanT more To us Than we can puT
inTo words. We will always remember Them, and we now
whole-hearTedly say, "Thank you Tor a iob well done."
EARLE TI. MARKLEY -
During his sTay aT The Hershey lndus-
Trial School, every boy has in some way
come in conTacT wiTh Mr. Earle I-l. Mark-

We shall remember him as a challenge
To do well in our Tasks aT all Times.
CLAIR F. HARNISH
Besides serving as a member oT The
adminisTraTive sTaTT, Mr. Clair F. l-larnish

going seniors in jobs.
Mr. l-larnish has been pleased by The

School acTiviTies Tormed one oT The
mosT enjoyable phases oT our school
liTe. FurThermore, They aTTorded op-
porTuniTy Tor developing our varied
TalenTs. They covered a wide Tield, wiTh
emphasis upon music and aThleTics. The
TaculTy advisers in charge oT These ac-
TiviTies were especially qualiTied and
always generous wiTh Their Time and
The groups represenTing our high
school acTiviTies have broughT crediT
To The school and high praise Tor Their
accomplishmenTs. PursuiT oT such ac-
TiviTies is always a wholesome en-
deavor, and The eagerness wiTh which
I-lomeboys parTicipaTe reTlecTs Tavor-
ably on Their characTer.
Many happy memories oT days spenT
here will be recalled To us by These
Tollowing pages, and Tor ThaT reason
They Torm an imporTanT parT oT our
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.
Because fransporfafion difficulfies eased
before foofball season sfarfed, fhe Band again
added i'rs spirif fo This sporf wifh ifs masferful
playing and colorful marching and formafions
af all buf one foofball game. lf also had fhe
honor of playing af fhe Green Bay-Piffsburgh
Professional Foofball Game in fhe sfadium and
af fhe Cify-Counfy All Sfar Game. On fhaf
occasion "Nan" Wiclcwire, I945 Nafional l-ligh
Harry Sherlock, drum major, and Mr. Young,
School Champion from William Penn l-l. S., Harrisburg, was our guesf maioreffe.
Every Palm Sunday fhe Band presenfs in fhe Communify Building a concerf which is
always well received. 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
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.
Service news iTems Trom sTudenTs. visiTors. and COFFGSFDONOTGDCG had To be CTWGCTKSCT
careTully so as noT To overlap or repeaT.
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.
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.
This year The SenaTe was placed under The
leadership oT Mr. Thural Brehm, who had been
a houseTaTher aT Rolling Green and is now
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.
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.
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 leadership oT This organizaTion has
changed hands many Times. wiTh The baTon-swinging This year in The hands oT Mrs.
The seniors in The SparTan OrchesTra. who Torrn a maioriTy, can go TorTh Trom This
organizaTion proud oT The record They have esTablished by playing Tor dances in many
places-l-lershey, Oberlin, l-lummelsTown, ElizabeThTown. and lndianTown Gap, To men-
Tion a Tew.
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.
This group did noT perTorm wiTh The regu-
lariTy of oTher musical organizaTions, buT This
TacT does noT discrediTiTheir eTTorTs. The
classics are noT prepared wiTh ease or rapidiTy,
and proper inTerpreTaTion demands much in
Time and pracTice.
Such experience is invaluable Tor The sTudenT
OT serious music as a guide Tor TuTure sTudy.
RaTher Than being discouraged aT The con-
siderable Taslc which conTronTs Them. They loolc
To Their ulTimaTe reward in The producTion oT
Tine music as an incenTive To greaTer eTTorT.
For These reasons we exTend To This organi-
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.
Mrs. Hoerner, instructor, ana' Philip Paregian,
We, The members oT The sTaTT OT The i946 ediTion oT The
Acropolis, sincerely hope ThaT you experience as much plea-
sure in browsing Through The pages oT our yearbook as we
had in compiling Them.
NOT everyThing in publishing a yearbook is Tun and glory.
OTTen iT is iusT plain hard work, as we soon learned. How-
ever, The beneTiTs derived Trom The eTTorT were worThwhile
and will linger in our memories long aTTer we leave H. I. S.
In classroom and shop, we are TiTTing ourselves Tor The
business oT useTul living. This book, Then, is a record oT our
learning experiences in H. I. S., oT our way oT liTe.
We members oT The ediTorial secTion oT The sTaTT Take

ATTer an exTremely successTul TooTball season our baslceTball sea-
son, by comparison, was somewhaT disappoinTing. AlThough our
Team appeared poTenTially sTrong, various handicaps such as The
loss oT key players Through iniuries and irregular pracTices because
oT a guaranTine prevenTed The squad Trom reaching iTs pealc.
Mr. T-loerner. lasT year's J-V coach, deserves crediT Tor his con-
Tinued good worlc wiTh The Team in accomplishing whaT he did wiTh
The maTerial aT hand. His sTarTing Tive were all seniors-Dave Bow-

Gene Mohr and Bernie Mescan aT guard. l-lowever, only Two oT
These Tive were available The enTire season.
OTher members oT The squad were seniors Marlin Goodyear,

25 poinTs. Big Herb Eshelman did a very commendable iob aT
cenTer, especially considering ThaT iT was his TirsT year oT basl4eTball.
WiTh a nucleus oT only one leTTerman, Coaches l-loar and Klein-
TelTer Tormed a speedy, aggressive eleven which ranked ThirTeenTh
among The high-school Teams oT The sTaTe. AlThough The lighTesT
Team in H. l. S. hisTory, These lads seT a new school record by
scoring ZOO poinTs.
A heavy Yorlc Team won our opener, I3-6. chieTly because oT

As Tall approached, we saw a group oT hopeTul underclassmen
compeTe in Their TirsT TooTball TryouTs under The Tading summer
sunshine. Under The veTeran eyes oT our TalenT-seeking coaches,
They drilled The whole morning-Tlinging pigskins, kicking, pulling
ouT, racing, receiving well-aimed passes. Decisions were made: all
possibiliTies were considered: noThing was over-looked.
