Situated high on an acropolis north of the town of Hershey is our citadel of learning. Attending this school are young men who are work- ing and studying to prepare them- selves for a useful, productive life in manhood. Their education is more varied in scope today than that of their counterparts of ancient Greeceg but, the essentials of acquiring basic intellectual skills, culture, physical development, and obedience are still an integral part of their daily pro- gram. We shall try to present the many facets of our school and home pro- gram in such a way as to indicate the parallel at which we are aiming. Milton S. llerslrey In 1903, a man decided to build an industry away from all the crowded conditions of the city. This man, Milton S. Hershey, showed amazing fore- sight in this decision. The world-famous chocolate industry he built fos- tered the growth of a model community surrounded by the fertile fields of central Pennsylvania. His crowning achievement, however, was his selfless gift of his fortune to the rearing and educating of orphan boys in a school and home which today bears his name. This deed, among many others, will be the one which will be remembered by us who are its grateful recipients. 3 We llail . . . Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert E. Moorehead, who have been with the Milton Her- shey School since 1943. During those years, Mr. Moorehead served first as a teacher of mathema- tics in the junior-senior high school. Then, in 1947, he became principal of the Memorial School. As principal of our elementary school, Mr. Moore- head also became an active member of our administrative staff, where his many years of experience in boys' schools served him well. In 1946, Mrs. Moorehead began teaching in the Memorial School. Since then, she has helped untold numbers of our young boys to grasp the fun- damentals of learning and to solve their problems in adjusting to our school. The Mooreheads truly deserve our appreciation for their years of effort spent in our behalf and society's appreciation for their lifetime of devotion to the challenge of developing young people into 1'-ine, upright adult citizens 4 4 M I if MR. D. PAUL WITMER MR- SAMUEL F. HINKLE MR. P. N. HERSHEY MR. P. A. STAPLES CHAIRMAN MR. JAMES E. BOBB MR. THEODORE R. BANKS MR. JOHN B. SOLLENBERGER MR. JOHN J. GALLAGHER MR- ARTHUR R. WI-IITEMAN MR- CHARLES F. ZIEGLER MR. WILLIAM H. EARNEST Administration In all ages and all societies, great and small, the leaders have set the tone of the time. Milton Hershey School is no exception to this rule. Our leaders in the persons of our managers and administrators have set the tone of our home and school in the manner in which Mr. Hershey, our benefactor, en- visioned it. Supreme authority rests with the Managers, of whom Mr. P. A. Staples is chairman, Mr. D. Paul Witmer, vice-chairman, and Mr. A. R. Whiteman, secretary-treasurer. The other Managers are Mr. Theodore R. Banks, Mr. James E. Bobb, Mr. Wm. H. Earnest, Mr. J. J. Gallagher, Mr. P. N. Hershey. Mr. Samuel F. Hinkle, Mr. John B. Sollenberger, and Mr. Charles F. Ziegler. Charged by the Managers with the responsibility of administering the vast operation of the Milton Hershey School is our superintendent, Dr. John O. Hershey. After ascending to the superintendency in 1951, Dr. Her- shey put to fullest use his knowledge and skill gained through years of study and experience in working with boys. Assisting Dr. Hershey in the administration of our educational program are Mr. Wilbert Moorehead, elementary principal, Mr. W. Allen Hammond, junior-senior high principal, Mr. Earle H. Markley, director of vocational education, and Mr. Benjamin F. Olena, administrative assistant. Each of these men has his own particular job to do. Mr. Moorehead guides our very youngest boys in their development and preparation for junior high school. At this point, Mr. Hammond takes over and guides the boy through the early adolescent years, a most difficult period. Then, as the boy moves on into the senior high school years, Mr. Markley enters the picture along with Mr. Hammond- and Mr. Olena, who together help in the vocational preparation of our boys. Since our school is more than a school, it is a home as Well, co-ordinators and advisors are needed to complete the administrative structure. Mr. Al- fred T. Gibble, director of student home life, co-ordinates the cottage and farm home program with the school program. Mr. Richard A. Rudisill, dean of boys, serves as advisor and disciplinarian to boys at home and in school. The a-dministrative staff itself has as members, in addition to the men mentioned above, Mrs. Lorna Sylvester, director of social services, Dr. H. H. Hostetter, medical director, Mr. Melvin H. Garner, director of student placement, and Mr. Harry M. Hartman and Mr. William Dearden, manager and assistant manager respectively of the business division. 6 x Dr. Hershey and Senior Class President Kenneth Roberts preview the diplomas of the Class of 1956. Mr. Moorehead, Mr. Hammond, Mr. Markley, and Mr. Olena pause for a moment during a conference 7 Stu ent Home life Director Mr. Alfred T. Gibble, our Director of Student Home Life, works side by side with our houseparents in a never- ending effort to create har- mony throughout our cottage and farm home program. An important part of this task is the development and co-ordi- nation of an interesting and varied recreation program which includes attendance at varsity sports events, movies, ice shows, Hershey Park, and participation in intramural sports, ice skating, swimming, and parties. Mr. Gibble confers with Mr.AK1inedinst, housefather at Broad cres. Dena of Boys Mr. Richard A. Rudisill, our Dean of Boys, is with us on many meaningful occasions during our school days. Sometimes these occasions are pleasant: other times. painful. It matters not which, for the experience gained is all skillfully directed toward developing a sense of self-dis- cipline in us all. More than anyone else, Mr. Rudisill is directly concerned with our moral and ethical growth, a task of immeasurable impor- tance which will leave an in-- l delible mark upon us. Joseph Bell and Mr. Rudisill are chuckling over an amusing presentation of a social blunder. 8 QX,c7-'- 'MXN The Memorial School faculty shown here assumes the responsibility for the primary and intermediate education of our boys. These are vital years in the development of the young mind. 9 A The elementary faculty shown here in- cludes our teachers of the later elementary years and special subjects like music, phys- ical education, and corrective reading. They prepare the way for entrance into junior- senior high school. 10 Our English and mathematics faculty pic- tured above and below respectively provide instruction for us in the basic tool subjects. Without this knowledge, our pursuits of other studies would be impossible. 11 The science and social studies faculty shown above and below respectively in- struct us in two interesting and important areas of learning-human relations through the years and the understanding of man's natural environment. 12 Our vocational faculty shown here provide expert guidance to our vocational students in their pursuit of an education resembling apprenticeship but including much more than the simple know-how of the particular trade. 13 The teachers pictured here serve us in various ways including such seemingly widely-separated, fields as music, art, busi- ness, physical education, library, guidance, and related topics. Each has his own special- ty which contributes in its particular way. 14 M ll A J 'QUIQSQNUIVD NQNBQNVA 0ffice Personnel In ancient Greece, was there such a position as a secretary? There is to- day, and seven of them are responsible in a large Way for the high degree of efficiency at our school. The tedious operation of the switchboard, prep- aration and distribution of all types of bulletins and lists, and the necessary correspondence are but a few of the duties of our secretarial staff. Business 0ffiee It is necessary for students Who are attending a resident school to be cared for properly. This is the work of a group of people of varied tal- ents who are directed by Messrs. Har- ry Hartman and William Dearden. Their staff obtains, prepares, and dis- tributes all the essentials needed for the smooth operation of the cottages and farm homes. This extensive oper- ation requires a great deal of co-oper- ation and co-ordination to function properly. Mr. Hartman and Mx. Dearden check over an order book. 15 Mr. Rogers and Mrs. Sylvester review a boy's record while Miss Sloane and Mr. Shupp look over his .est results. Social Service The four members of the social services group, Mrs. Lorna Syl- vester, director, Miss Barbara Sloane, case worker, Mr. Franklin Shupp, psychologist, and Mr. Glenn Rogers, counselor, form a team which serves as a vital force in the development of our school's boy-centered program. While most of the work of this group is done behind the scenes, the results are seen in the generally satisfactory adjustment of our student body. Claude' Seward completes a job application form under the guidance of Mr. Garner. 16 Placement Service Mr. Melvin Garner, our Student Placement Director, plays a many-sided role in the life of our student body, especially for the seniors. He acts as a vocational advisor, and, even more important, he serves as a contact be- tween our graduates and po- tential employers and admis- sions offices of colleges and universities. Medical Service Medical care for our boys is efficiently provided by Dr. H. H. Hostetter and our school nurse, Miss Elizabeth Rupp. While Dr. Hostetter's services are reserved for more serious illnesses and in- juries, Miss Rupp cares for the many minor ills and in- juries which befall us. Also available for consultation are Drs. Herbert Cooper, Wil- liam J. Atlee, Jr., Dr. Hostetter and Miss Rupp check the list of and Paul M. Dunn. signed up for first aid. Dental Service In daily practice in the Dental Clinic are Drs. E. M. McMullen and David P. Snavely along with their assistant, Mrs. Marion Millar. A full schedule of appointments keeps them constantly oc- cupied. Assisting on a part-time basis are Mrs. Elizabeth Abel as hygienist and Dr. John Cooper as orthodontist. Responsible for the overall direction of our dental services is Dr. H. K. Cooper. Mrs. Millar looks on as Dr. McMullen examines a boy's teeth. Dr. Snavely is completing an exam tion. 0 7 II 6 R 6' E R V I C f s 18 A 6 4 I I V I First Row il. to r.b: Richard Duignan, Raymond Orlowski, Ronald Parks, John Martin, Robert Mann, and Arthur Bossler.

Joh car pro ds to Fred Craft during the annual service The Student Senate is one of the most important student organi- zations at MHS. It constantly instills in our students a sense of fair play and responsibility which benefits them now and will pay div- idends later in their adult lives. Among the activities of the Student Senate are the discussion of student suggestions and problems, the continuing effort to develop pleasant relationships with our com- munity friends, the sale of Christmas cards to our student body, and the annual Easter trip to the Elizabethtown Crippled Children's Hospital with gifts from our students. The Student Senate has performed its job well this year under the leadership of its president, David Fiahnestock, and with the un- failing guidance of its advisor, Mr. Alfred T. Gibble. n Mellinger makes a sale of Christmas Robert Brown, John Bressler, Dale Clews, Stephen Benevento, and Charles Chase put the finishing touches on Easter baskets for crippled children. ject. 19 The boys in the Memorial School Choir under the direction of Miss Lynette Waller have had an active season contributing their voices to Sunday morning worship services and participating in the Christmas festivities both in school and in town. The Junior High School Choir under the direction of Mr. Virgil L. Alexander provides an opportunity for its members to continue to develop an appreciation for music and to learn the fundamentals of choral singing. This choir, also, has provided inspiring music throughout the year. First Row 11. to r.l: W. Murphy, D. Harhager, M. Fasnacht, J. Minella, E. Fink, J. Mitchell, R. Risch, D. Ogden, K. Smith, R.

As a result, the performance of the boys is generally superior. Under the direction of Mr. Virgil L. Alexander, this year's Glee Club has contin- ued the tradition of serving as the "singing ambassadors" of Milton Hershey School. Their concerts were pre- l sented in numerous local - - - - Mr. Al d h R ld C scu , Prry and ne1ghb0r1ng C0II1mUY11t19S, Km..s.?i?3n5i1 3113525 M3522 0-5525. aid Dgvid churches, at several conven- tions, and on television shows as well as at a few high school convocations which, incidentally, were reciprocated for by the musical organizations of those schools presenting assembly programs at MHS. The Glee Club's frequent appearances in Sunday morning worship ser- vices always added to the inspirational atmosphere of the service. The real highlights of Glee Club activities this year, however, were the record- ing of a number of its favorite selections and two week-end concert tours. The officers of the Glee Club were James O'Shell, president, Ronald Osborne, manager, Perry Knouse, secretary, Dale Miller, librarian, and Robert Dilts, historian. Lamar Wildermuth served quite capably as the ac- companist. Afner. First Row 11. to r.l: Lamar Wildermuth, Daniel DiTomaso, Walter Brooks.

Thus, their fame has spread far and wide, and they are in constant demand by many of our neighboring schools for assembly programs and school dances. Our own dances are, of course, enhanced by the very fine music of this group. Under the direction of Mr. W. Purnell Payne, the boys of the Spartan Orchestra practice during their free time, sometimes as a complete orches- tra and other times as small combinations. Their repertoire includes a wide selection of the current popular tunes as well as a nostalgic sprinkling of the "old standards." ' Perry Knouse, as student director, wields the baton and joins in the trumpet section. Lamar Wildermuth plays piano while William Green on the drums, Dale Miller on the bass, and William Curtis on guitar fill in the rhythm section. Royal Wetzel, Chester Evans, and George Golding make up the trumpet section. Robert Dilts, Stewart Carstater, and William Abbott play trombone to complete the brass section. To provide that mellowness which is so distinctive of the Spartans, the saxophone section includes Frank Cason, James O'Shell, Robert Patton, Ronald Osborne, and Harry Mercer. The 1955-56 Spartan Orchestra has lived up to the expectations of its predecessors and continued the tradition of providing top-notch dance music here at MHS. Prospects are very good for a continuation of this tra- dition in future years. . 22 T Il E B 0 ll D 23 THE SPARTAN reports an- other successful year by again receiving recognition by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in New York of which it is a member.

Hoffman has worked with a staff head- ed by co-editors Robert Dilts, who directed the literary phase, and Richard Allen, who served in art and pro- duction capacities. Primary responsibility for senior write-ups was assumed by Fred Bowser with Harvey Heifner and James Welsh assisting. The other writing tasks fell to Robert I-limes, William Abbott, David Arner, Joseph Holden, and Joseph Bach. The art work was William Godshall's responsibility.

Member- ship continues to grow as the program improves. The troop's headquarters are at Camp Milton which has been improved recently, thereby making week-end camping more enjoyable. Responsibility for the ad'- ministration of the organiza- tion rests upon Mr. Orville Strait, chairman of the troop committee. Mr. Paul Reitz, scoutmaster, Mr. J ohn Tellet, post advisor, and Mr. William Hoffman, ship advisor, were well supported in their group activities by Scouters Bikle, Brehm, Douglas, Frank Hammond, Hess, McCreary, Pratt, Rogers, Shuler, Stam- baugh, Stuckey, Timmins, and Yottey. 5 Richard Esterly, Robert Brill, and Alvin Seyler watch Mr Brehm prepare a display for the trapping club. Our school offers many op- portunities for a boy to ex- cell in one field or another. Various organizations give him a choice of a field he will enjoy and in which he will profit most. The Science Club, spon- sored by Mr. Bikle, offers its members a chance to work on a scientific project, thus laying a solid foundation for future scientific pursuits. Our club with the largest membership is the Trapping Club. This organization teaches boys the proper method of trapping animals and taking care of the pelts. It also provides an additional income for the trappers. Mr. Brehm directs this club. The Library Club is de- signed to teach the operation of a library.

The age-old sport of swimming appeared on the inter-scholastic varsity sports scene for the first time this year at MHS. While swimming has been an integral part of our physical education program for many years as well as an important aspect of our year-round recreational program, a competi- tive schedule had not been part of these plans. Nearly all of our boys swim in some fashion, but this is not enough to participate in competitive swimming. The task of taking this unknown po- tential and developing it into a well-trained, well-disciplined team fell to Mr. John Tellet. His years of water activity supervision at Boy Scout camps and his own superior ability as a swimmer fitted him quite substantially for the job of coaching this beginning swimming team. This first-year team does not post a fine record of winsg in fact, there were no wins for the team. However, the significant aspect of the record appears in the steady increase in points earned by the team from meet to meet. This certainly is an indication of the kind of spirit that is developing among our mermen and the increased proficiency that they are gaining. Prospects for next year's team are much brighter because of the funda- mentals learned this year.

Foot- ball plays an important part in this program. Our team's record this year showed five wins, four losses, and one tie. Competition was keen all season, but seemed to reach its pinnacle in the first game of the year with Hershey High in the Rotary Bowl. This im- portant initial victory inspired our co-captains, Ken Roberts and Bob Patton, to lead the squad to much more spectacular playing in later games.

Basketball The 1955-56 basketball season at MHS provided the fans with its share of thrills. On several occasions our team came from behind to post an exciting last-minute win: on other occasions our opponents, while winning, knew they had been in a battle all the way. John Feeney and Alvin Smulktis, co-captains, led the team well and did everything in their power to keep up team morale in those moments when the score tended to discourage the boys. Prospects for the future are good inasmuch as this year's team included a majority of underclassmen on the roster. Furthermore, the junior varsity team showed considerable improvement throughout the season. All this experience is bound to pay off in coming seasons.

Our almost-invin- cible matmen lost their first match after a string of forty- four consecutive wins to a powerful Reading squad by a margin of three points. Spurred on by this initial set- back, our squad went on to a very successful season be- ing upset on only one other occasion by another very ' powerful squad, Manheim Central.

Based upon last year's results and the number of boys re- turning as one or two-year veterans, prospects for the 1956 season look good. The schedule our team plays is a rigorous one which calls for two games with each of the following schools: Lebanon Hershey Steelton York John Harris William Penn Lancaster Coach Lester Abel and student manager Robert Smith look over some new baseball equipment. 35 I Il T R A M 0 R 4 l 5 36 . 5554568 ff , . .

In accordance with Milton Hershey's belief that life on a farm would serve to develop boys physically and in the ways of life, a healthful program of outdoor life combined with chores has evolved. For the most part, the household duties are assumed by the younger and smaller boys while the older and bigger boys work in the dairy barns. During the summer, however, all our boys have plenty of opportunity to get fresh air and sunshine as they work in the fields Luther O'Shell emerges from the barn after completing his milking chores. 38 Mrs. Herb gets considerable help at meal time from Richard Lowright and Gerald Ayres. Gary Kennedy helps Roy Neuwirth with his soldering while Frank Noroski and Richard Adelizzi check their photographic equipment in their :farm home hobby room. All is not work at the farm home, for play in its many forms is an integral part of the program. Various outdoor sports in season are quite popular. A prime example of this is the summer intra- mural baseball program. Hobby rooms provide ample opportunity for craft projects of all sorts. Parties give our boys a chance to invite friends for an evening of fun and relaxation. And, all year round, regardless of the weather, the magnetism of television is always strong. . Bob Dilts presents a gift from home to Pat Fair at their farm home Christmas party. this party at Glendale. Square dancing highlighted the evening at Robert Maxwell, world-famous harpist, plays his own composition, "Ebb Tide," with the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra at the annual celebration of Milton S. Hershey's birthday. The 1955-56 school year was crowded with social activities from the very beginning. The opening of school was heralded by the annual picnic in Hershey Park with games, free rides, and food galore. Mr. Hershey's birthday was celebrated in fine style by a "pop" concert of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. With the social year in full swing, the seniors began their dance schedule with a Hallowe'en square dance followed in close succession by the Christmas Dance, the Valentine Dance, the Faculty Wives' Dance, and the Senior Prom.

Social activities for all boys included attendance at varsity sports events, movies, ice shows, and ice hockey games and par- t ticipation in ice skating, swimming, and farm home parties. Homecoming events proved quite successful in November. The Christmas season was without equal this year with caroling, visit- ing, and celebrating going on everywhere. Spring brought with it an increased amount of outdoor activity plus the annual Parents' Weekend festivities including the very popular hobby show. The culminating social events of the year were, of course, those which attend the graduation exercises. 1 Marvin Soloff and William Hutchinson dance with their dates at the most memorable dance of their senior year-the Prom. The Parents' Weekend hobby show draws a crowd of viewers who find hobbies of many types on display. 41 6' P E C 7' 0 7 0 R .9 42 Q 'J '11 ! I P ,J r I-3 ,n,I ffl ltr.

The youngsters of our school live and learn in the area referred to as the "Main," This training center is made up of the Fanny B. Hershey Memorial School and the cottages and playgrounds surrounding it. The boys living here range in ages from four to twelve and in grades from kindergarten to sixth. Chores are limited to attending to personal cleanliness and to caring for personal property. Play and study are the key- notes of the development of these boys. Play is carefully supervised at the cottage as well as at school. Safety is stressed and the boys are taught to keep off the roads. The education of these youngsters is attended to by an understanding and sympathetic faculty who succeed in developing the boys as individuals, a task of utmost importance in the Milton Hershey School. The boys' educa- tion has a dual purpose inasmuch as it must prepare the boy not only to enter the instructional programs of the junior high school, but also to adapt to a different way of life such as he will find at the farm home to which he will eventually be transferred when he enters junior high. 43 Thomas Organtini and William Saxton plan a trip to South America in their geography class. r I Stephen Usher operates a drill in industrial arts shop while his classmates look on.

The Class of 1956 chose the following leaders to represent them on all occasions. Kenneth Rob- erts, as president, guided well the course of the class. Robert Patton, as vice-president, was a dependable second-in-command. William Hutchinson, as treasurer, handled the large class funds with care. And, John Scipione, as secretary, was always on hand to record class business. Advisor Mr. William E. Hoffman en- thusiastically assumed the difficult duties of advisor to the Class of 1956. His broad teaching experience and un- derstanding of youth have helped him to help our Class solve many of their problems, both as a class and individu- ally. He has constantly ful- filled the wishes of the Class of 1956 and guided our paths l as we worked so diligently toward our long-sought goal of graduation from MHS. W1 04 ' ,' x, Sf fi.

She will long be remembered as one who has been instrumental in planting in the minds of youth the fundamentals of school work and the ways of life. 0 Mrs. Edna B. Moorehead for the thirteen years of educational experience she has contributed to MHS in teaching boys of the upper elementary grades. Her understanding of the problems of youth have given her a back- ground for the many counseling opportunities she has had. 0 Mr. Harold S. Hagaman, our physical education director at Memorial School. For twenty-eight years he has guided our younger boys in develop- ing themselves physically. By vigorous exercise and competitive sports, Mr. Hagaman has developed not only the bodies but also leadership quali- ties, team spirit, and good sportsmanship. Life was a challenge to the citizens of ancient Greece as it is a challenge to us today. Miss Beam, Mrs. Moorehead, and Mr. Hagaman have met life's challenge and have now reached the age at which they may relax and en- joy themselves in retirement while others carry on in their places. The success of their lives must stand as an inspiration to the graduates of 1956 as well as to all students throughout Milton Hershey School. 71 T' P P I X F K , ' Mm '3 .I , A I 3 v? 5.1 'hiirnb Designed, edited, composed printed, and bound by the students of Milton Hershey School. f 7 I I ff ,I f X
