The sTaTT oT The I957 ACROPOLIS has
aTTempTed To place on The Tollowing pages
a record oT The I956-57 school year. The
record is inTended To serve a dual purpose:
TirsT, as an insTrumenT Tor pleasanT remi-
niscing and, second, as anoTher volume in
The annals oT The MilTon Hershey School.
The iniTial pages oT The boolc are devoT-
ed To Those who prepare us Tor The TuTure
and To MilTon S. Hershey, The Tounder OT
our school. lT is impossible To TabulaTe The
amounT oT service rendered by The Mana-
21,2 , I . ,
gers, The superinTendenT, The principals,
The TaculTy, The houseparenTs, and The
many oThers who care Tor our physical,
menTal, and social needs. Such conTribu-
Tions are deeper Than maThemaTics. And,
oT course, words cannoT express our graTe-
Tulness To our Tounder.
As one pages Through The boolc, he will
be able To relive This pasT year. Tor he is a
deTiniTe characTer in The sTory which is Told.
The sTory is your sTory-T956-57.

As spring drew near and the end ot school
approached, the stage was set tor the tinal
sport on the hill, baseball. A promising
year was in store as shown by the experi-
enced players returning trom last season.
Bob Yablonslci, Allen Henry, James Fire-
stone. and Gary Daum returned to the
mound as Russell Conrad, Martin Ruch, and
Robert Aslcey ottered aid as receivers. The
intield was kept alive with veterans Wilmer
Good, Leroy Reale, Robert Johnson,
Ronald Stewart, James Klinger, and
Robert Reed. James Porach, Gerald
Ayres, Ronald Stebiclc, and Robert Morris
did the bulk ot the outtield play.
Pitcher Allen Henry dives back to first base to stop
an attempted double play by the Lebanon squad.
Pointing to the heart on his health chart is Harry Chalmers While

...at Memorial School pursue a varied
educational program in grades kindergar-
ten through titth. The acquisition ot the
tunolamentals, the tool subiects, takes up a
major portion ot their time, but there is
still time lett tor other activities such as
Memorial School boys having a wonderful time swimming in-
clude Bobby Nelsnn in 'he foreground and Oliver Brandt
shouting in the background.

James Leitzel and Steve Lazarus watch Robert Heller operate
a saw in the industrial arts shop.
...are difficult in many ways. Academical-
ly, the class load is increasing in quantity
and quality. Socially, increased privileges
add opportunities and responsibilities for
meeting and dealing with new situations.
And. physically, rapid growth can be
somewhat frightening. Added to all this
is the pressing problem of deciding upon
a vocational obiective somewhere along
the way in the ninth grade year.
Clair Shawver and Gary Schaffer use the globe as well as
their textbook map to locate a South American country for
their sixth grade geography class.
