Published by the Senior Class of M. S. Hershey High School
CARLOS ROBERT ADAMS - "Ben"
Football (3, 4); Basketball (4); Track (3, 4); Hi-Y (3, 4).
PERSEVERANCE is an admirable trait in humans. Carlos has shown just how
much of that trait he possesses. During his senior year, "Ben" went out
for football in earnest, and, altho' he lacked the required number of
minutes to be awarded a letter, Coach Brittain presented him with one for
the fine qualities he had shown during the season. "Ben" plodded along,
working hard, never complaining. He made a place for himself on the track
team by earnest endeavor. Carlos will succeed in the world, and he is
working hard to become a carpenter.
BERNARD AURENTZ - "Barney"
"Oh, hush up!"
Commercial Club (3); Hi-Y (3, 4), Secretary (4); President Kodak Club (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); "Building a Nation."
OF ALL the people who annoy us in the Choclatier room - and then when we
try to talk and be agreeable he wants to study and tells us, "Oh, hush
Bernard's favorite occupation is arguing in Problems class. There is no
question on earth that does not have an opposite side, and "Barney" takes
that side. He is fond of taking pictures and we wonder if that is why we
see him strolling away from the building at all hours of the day. Oh, yes,
he's a woman-hater, but we wonder - ?
STANFORD LEROY BAUGHER - "Tam"
Football (3, 4); Hi-Y (3, 4); Basketball (3, 4); Baseball (3, 4); Mixed
Chorus (4); Senior Athletic Club (4); Vice-President of Class (4);
CHOCLATIER Staff (4).
"TAM" waited until his junior year before he decided to come to Hershey
High School, but he found instant popularity and friends. He likes sports
very much and puts himself earnestly into winning the game. His only
misfortune is that he had to exist until his senior year before Elinor
came to Hershey, but once she did, "Tam" showed his initiative and cut in
before anyone else had a chance. In the short time he was with us Stanford
engaged in many activities and was senior class vice-president. After he
is graduated "Tam" expects to go away to college, but as yet has not
decided which one it will be.
MYLES FITZKE BOMGARDNER - "Bommy"
P. A. D. Club (4).
MYLES is a carpenter, consequently his handiwork may be noticed on several
houses roundabout Hershey which were built by high school carpenters. He
is industrious and quiet, and has followed his career in high school
diligently. "Bommy" has the aspects of a silent observer - taking in much
- saying little. We hope the knowledge he absorbs will help him in later
life at his occupation of carpentry.
ROBERT MARTIN BRENBERGER - "Bob"
"Git the hang out!"
Broadcaster Staff (3); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); Hi-Y (3, 4); P. A. D. Club
(4); "Building a Nation."
MANY people say things which they imagine are funny, but it takes a real
humorist to make casual remarks which will send a crowd into laughter. And
"Bob" is a humorist. There is a certain something about the way he drops
words here and there that is really funny. He is well known as a singer of
no small ability and appeal. "Bob" is a machinist, and expects to further
his education after he leaves high school as an apprentice in the Brown
and Sharpe Manufacturing Company in Rhode Island.
LOIS MARIE BRETZ - "Pretzel"
"Can you feature that?"
Sigma Gamma (4); Tri-Hi-Y (4); Senior Council (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); "Bab."
LOIS came to our class in her senior year, but it didn't take her long to
find many friends. From her very first day, "Pretzel" has found herself
involved in most of the activities of the class. Lois is a very efficient
typist, and, of course, she claims that she wants a position in an office,
but we're wondering if some "nice young man with rosy cheeks" won't
interfere. There are few remarks you can make to Lois that will go without
a witty reply. Her stock of words of a slangy nature is really amazing.
But behind all the jovial nature she possesses, lies an intelligent mind.
KENNETH WILSON BROWN - "Ken"
Hi-Y (3); Senior Sports Club (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); Broadcaster Staff
(4); "Pioneer's Papoose."
A CAPTIVATING smile is this gentleman's chief asset. It brings him many
friends and attracts customers to the soda fountain counter of the store.
One of "Ken's" outstanding characteristics is dodging work whenever
possible, altho' one would never believe it, to see him shaking up sodas.
In spite of the fact that he is slightly on the wrong side of the
avoirdupois line, "Ken" is a good dancer, and can't make his feet behave
when he hears music. He expects to attend the Philadelphia College of
Pharmacy after graduation.
JAMES PORTER CLINE - "Darwin"
Track (3, 4); Hi-Y (3, 4); Science Club (3); Student Council (4); Baseball
(4); Debating Team (4); Broadcaster Staff.
A VALUABLE asset to the track team, the debating team - oh, to just lots
of things. Porter has taken the Preparatory Course - with success. He was
interested enough in journalistic endeavors to secure a position on the
Broadcaster Staff as Associate Editor. "Darwin," as his many friends know
him, expects to take up a business course, but has not yet decided upon a
school. The best of luck, Porter. Wear rubber heels so you won't scratch
MARION JEAN COLANGELO - "Curly"
"Did you kids hear - ?"
Mixed Chorus (2, 3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Commercial Club (3); Sigma Gamma
(4); "Page the Prince"; "Pioneer's Papoose"; "Spanish Moon"; "Building a
MARION has an unruly mop of black hair as tumbled as her gay spirits. She
is noted for saying and doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. "Curly"
can be serious when lessons are unfinished, but is usually seen laughing,
cause or no cause. Marion has followed the Commercial Course in her high
school work, and aspires to become somebody's busy stenographer. Depend
upon the skill in your finger-tips, Marion, when you apply for a position.
JOHN CURRY DUPLER - "Johnny"
Football (2, 3, 4); Hi-Y (3, 4); Track (3, 4); Mixed Chorus (4); Baseball
(4); "Building a Nation."
JOHN is so quiet-looking, but those people surprise us sometimes. We
imagine he would be retiring, but he is always among the jolliest.
"Johnny" made a good showing in his years of track work, as well as
football and baseball. In his high school work, John has taken up
printing, and in the future we may find him standing beside some monster
press, watching the daily edition roll off; or judging from the efficient
manner in which he announced the Vocation School assembly program, we may
hear his silver-toned tenor over the ether.
WARREN CURRY EBERSOLE - "Pete"
Baseball (1, 2, 3, 4); Football (2, 3, 4); Basketball Mgr. (4); Class
Treasurer (1, 2, 3, 4); CHOCLATIER Staff, Business Mgr. (4); Varsity H
Club (3); Broadcaster Staff (3, 4); Hi-Y (3, 4); "Bab"; "Spanish Moon";
"Building a Nation."
IF THERE ever was a business man in the making, here he is. "Pete," as his
record shows, is the treasurer or business manager of something or other
most of the time. He also devotes much time to the football team, baseball
team, and - well, we don't have the space or ambition to list the rest.
But he surely knows how to write out checks. In whatever occupation you
place your lot, "Pete," either with Grace, or alone (we guess not), we
hope you'll have plenty of money in bank for which to write out checks.
ESTELLA IRENE EBY - "Ester"
"Oh, my goodness."
Oratorical Contest (1); Dauphin County Commercial Contest (2); Commercial
Club (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Sigma Gamma (4); Broadcaster Staff (4);
CHOCLATIER Staff (4).
HERE is a girl with plenty of ambition. "Ester's" dexterous fingers have
won her honors as a typist. She is very fond of drawing and possesses
great talent and much patience in this line. Estella has taken the
Commercial Course in high school, and plans to enter a business office
after graduation. She has always attained high marks in her courses, but
every now and then we noticed drawings on the margins of her compositions!
CHARLES WILLIAM EMERICK - "Emerick"
Mixed Chorus (4); Orchestra (1, 2); Hi-Y (3, 4).
CHARLES - how odd the name sounds - we know him as "Emerick" - took the
Preparatory course until the vocational unit was completed. Then he became
a machinist in the making. He is sure to be successful if he puts as much
effort to his work as he does in talking to girls. "Emerick" has an
infectious smile and knows how to flash it - at the girls. He plays the
cornet with more success than can be imagined of a cornetist. We'll look
for you in the machine shop, "Emerick," probably that of the General
ANNA MARY ERDMAN - "Ann"
Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4), President (4); Treasurer of the Sigma Gamma (4); Dramatic
Club (3); Mixed Chorus (3); Debating Club (2, 3, 4); Debating Team (3, 4);
Broadcaster Staff (4); "That's That"; "The Pioneer's Papoose"; "Page the
Prince"; "Spanish Moon"; "Building a Nation."
A PERSON of dependable and reliable nature can be found as long as Anna is
there. She has held many positions of responsibility and trust, and was
elected Ti-Hi-Y president in her senior year. Ana writes compositions and
stories which show more than an average amount of talent. A convincing
proof of the high nature of Anna's work is her award as an Eagle Scout, an
honor attained by very few people. "Ann" will win her way in the world.
ANNA ELIZABETH ESBENSHADE - "Shady"
Harmonica Band (2); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); French Club (4); Sigma Gamma (4).
WHO is that peering out from that mop of raven-black hair! Why, I declare,
it's Anna Esbenshade. "Shady" has sparkling black eyes and an equally
sparkling fair smile which may be used some day to "bring the class to
order." No, she probably wouldn't frown, it's not her nature. Of all
things which Anna does not care for, receiving hard questions in health is
most of them. We hope she won't encounter much of this when she attends
West Chester State Teachers' College.
MABEL ELIZABETH ESPENSHADE - "Mab"
"Where shall I put this?"
Dauphin County Commercial Contest (2); Commercial Club (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3,
4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); Sewing Club (4); Sigma Gamma (4).
AND here is another one - the class seems full of them - those
shy-appearing girls with a world of friendliness behind their quietness.
Mabel has taken up the Commercial Course in a very serious way. She
aspires some day to reap the harvest of her study by securing a position
in an office. She has those valuable qualities which an office needs - the
ability to do quietly, quickly, and efficiently whatever is given her to
ROBERT EVANS - "Bob"
"You don't say!"
Mixed Chorus (4); Hi-Y (3, 4); "Building a Nation."
HERE is a young lad who comes from the Hershey Industrial School. Most of
his time is spent in the machine shop where he is being skillfully trained
and filled with knowledge so that he may be able to compete with others
when he enters his life's work. "Bob" participates in athletics at the
Industrial school, but most of his spare time is spent with a certain
damsel of the Junior class.
LORRAINE INEZ FOREMAN - "Rainey"
"Oh, ya will, will ya?"
Declamation Contest (1); Track (1); Basketball (1, 2, 3, 4); Broadcaster
Staff (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4), Secretary (4); Dramatic Club (3); Cheer Leader
(3, 4); President of Sigma Gamma (4); Mixed chorus (4); CHOCLATIER Staff;
"Page the Prince"; "Spanish Moon."
HERE is a girl who goes everywhere and is in every activity that comes
along. "Rainey" is a good sport and is always eager to help out in any
affair. She is Sigma Gamma president and has directed that group with
great success. As the captain of the cheering squad, she helped her
colleagues to bring victories to Hershey High School. She was a prominent
member of the basketball squad for four years.
WEBSTER FOX - "Web"
Football (2, 3, 4); Baseball (2); Basketball (2); Mixed Chorus (2, 3);
Orchestra (2, 3); Hi-Y (3, 4); Varsity H Club (3); P. A. D. Club (4);
Broadcaster Staff (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); Senior Council, President
(4); "Pioneer's Papoose"; "Spanish Moon"; "Bab"; Band (3).
"WEB" is a young gentleman who hails from the great metropolis of Sand
Beach. Ever since his arrival at Hershey High he has been an active member
of our class. He was a member of the football team, on which he filled a
backfield position. He has also had parts in several dramatic productions,
in which he played his roles very well. Besides the activities mentioned,
our friend showed his interest for music. Next fall "Web" will enter New
York University to take up Journalism. Good luck!
HELEN RUTH FREHN - "Ruthie"
Class Secretary (2, 4); Sigma Gamma, Secretary (4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4);
Dramatic club (3); Mixed Chorus (4); Broadcaster Staff (1); CHOCLATIER
Staff (1, 4); String Band (2); "Bab"; "Page the Prince"; "Spanish Moon."
THIS little girl is the secretary of our class and she is a very capable
one. No doubt it is because she has taken the Commercial Course. If you
are looking for a real friend who is liked by everyone, just take a glance
at "Ruthie." She has proved her business ability in various ways and will
be an asset to any firm. During her spare time she worked as a telephone
operator which was invaluable experience.
HESTER MARY GISH - "Gishie"
Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Embroidery Club (3, 4); Mixed Chorus (4); Sigma Gamma
"GISHIE" is one of the quiet lassies of the class, but this statement does
not always hold true; for when she is in the cloakroom with a few other
girls, they make more noise than a hundred boys. "Gishie" comes from the
gigantic metropolis of Stoverdale where she hopes to establish a bakery.
If she can recall a few French words and mentions them, it will
undoubtedly have a preeminent effect on the cakes. The old gang which
graduated in '32 is confident of your success.
JOSEPH HENRY CHARLES GOWDY - "Hank"
"You ain't so hot!"
Mixed Chorus (4); Hi-Y (3); P. A. D. Club (4); "Building a Nation."
BROWN and Sharpe, seems to be quite a prominent place, for here is another
student who has expressed his desire of entering that institution. "Hank"
has not taken a very active part in school activities, but has shown a
keen interest in them. He always took a short walk with friends during the
noon hour; no doubt this was merely for the exercise. After you leave
Hershey High, remember that the Class of '32 is backing you and wishing
you success, "Hank," old boy!
ANTHONY PAUL GRAVINO - "Tony"
"Oh, you burlap!"
Basketball (2, 4); Baseball (3); Hi-Y (3); "Pioneer's Papoose"; "Building
WHEN the Trade School opened at the beginning of the second semester of
1930, "Tony" decided to change his course of study and to learn a trade.
Even though he was not among the regular classes thereafter, he was with
the class part of the time. "Tony" is a jolly fellow and a good friend of
everyone. He seemed to be interested in sports and also in the fairer sex;
but you can't blame him for that. This youth hopes to acquire a position
in some printing establishment. Best luck, "Tony."
JOHN ULRICH GRUBER - "Johnnie"
"Quit your swearin!"
Commercial Club (3); Broadcaster Staff (4); Hi-Y (3, 4)
THIS young gentleman comes from the great city of Palmyra. He may seem
quiet sometimes, but if you really want to see how active he is, slip up
behind him when he is among the girls of the commercial section. That is
where John shines. Recently he has become interested in an underclassman.
Enough said! In addition to the mentioned activities he exerts some
efforts in regular school work and in boosting the athletic teams. The
class wishes you luck, "Johnnie" when you enter Central Pennsylvania to
further your education.
HOWARD JAY HALDEMAN - "Speed, Jr."
"More beer and bigger pretzels!"
Senior Athletic Club (4); Hi-Y (3, 4); Latin Club (3); Orchestra (2, 3);
Band (2, 3).
OUR classes have been well entertained since this young man became one of
our members. He often has the class in uproars as he reads and recites in
his peculiar Dutch dialect. One of Jay's hobbies is arguing in Problems,
but he is very seldom given a chance to give his ideas about Prohibition.
After leaving Hershey High, which he loves so dearly, Jay expects to join
JOSEPH ANDREW HENRY - "Joe"
Band (2, 3); Orchestra (1, 2); Football (2, 4); Basketball (2, 4);
Broadcaster Staff, Advertising Mgr. (4); CHOCLATIER Staff, Advertising
Mgr. (4); Senior Athletic Club, Secretary (4); Hi-Y (3, 4); Declamation
(1); "Building a Nation."
SAILORS have a girl in every port, but "Joe" is slightly different, he
believes in having a girl in every town. Judging from the size of the
letters he receives, the paper industries cannot be affected by the
depression. "Wise-cracking" is one of his favorite hobbies. "Joe" took an
active part in athletics and other school activities. He found that
Advertising Manager of the Broadcaster and CHOCLATIER was a large-sized
FREDERICK DE LANCEY HESSE - "Freddie"
Hi-Y (3, 4); Mixed Chorus (2, 3, 4); President (4); Chemistry Club (3);
Dramatic Club, Treasurer (4); CHOCLATIER Staff, Associate Editor (4);
"Pioneer's Papoose"; "Spanish Moon"; "Bab"; "Building a Nation."
OF COURSE there is really no need to introduce this industrious young man,
for his friendliness and personality have made him a popular member of our
class. "Freddie" is a good student, his literary ability being displayed
as an Associate Editor of the Choclatier. He participated in sports at the
Hershey Industrial School and was an active member of our class, taking
part in several dramatic productions. "Freddie" will either become a
chemist or work in an office.
BRUCE KENNETH STEWART HILER - "Farmer"
"Be seein' ya, when I'm sober."
Future Farmers of America, Kodak Club (4).
MY, WHAT a name! But don't let that bother you for he's a pretty good
fellow in spite of his title. Bruce drives one of those things called
Fords; you've heard of them. He was the only member of our group who took
up Agriculture in the Vocational High School, which shows that at least
one person in the Class of '32 will uphold the great occupation of
farming. Bruce will learn more about his chosen work at Penn State. You
have our best wishes, Bruce Kenneth Stewart Hiler. As our book goes to
press, however, we find that Bruce lacks the necessary credits and we
regret to say that he will not be graduated with the class.
CHARLES HENRY HIPPLE - "Hip"
"I ain't not!"
Mixed Chorus (4); Hi-Y (3, 4).
IT SEEMS as though most of the Senior boys come from the Hershey
Industrial School, for here is another one. "Hip," the big boy with the
blonde hair, is a member of the Vocational unit and is specializing in
Printing. You will find that he is a good sport; always willing to do his
bit. "Hip's" desire of entering some printing establishment will not be in
vain because with his training and the wishes of the Senior Class he is
sure to succeed.
WILLIAM ROBERT HYLAND - "Bill"
Basketball (2, 3, 4); Baseball (2, 3, 4); Broadcaster Staff (3); Managing
Editor (4); Football Manager (4); Hi-Y President (4); Class President (4);
Senior Council (4); Senior Athletic Club, Treasurer (4); "Spanish Moon";
"Pioneer's Papoose"; "Bab."
WHO is that handsome young man? That is "Bill" who is one of our best
athletes, a southpaw of no mean ability. "Bill" is one of our most popular
boys and has been elected president of several organizations. During the
first three years "Bill" stayed away from the girls, but this year a
certain Junior struck the "lost chord" in his heart. He is expecting to
enter a higher institution for a course in science. If the leadership
ability you have developed in high school does not fail you, success
awaits you, "Bill."
CLARENCE JEFFRIES - "Jeff"
Basketball (3, 4); Football (4).
HERE is another printer who likes to print better than to eat. He is not
very fat as you can see, but this is because he works hard. "Jeff" has
always shown great school spirit in the sports in which he participated.
"Jeff" expects to get a job with a newspaper company soon after
graduation. "Jeff" leaves an imprint on every girl's heart that he smashes
into; that is probably one of the arts they learn in the printing
RUTH MAE KEENER - "Keener"
"Oh, shut up!"
Latin Club, Sec.-Treas. (3); Orchestra (1, 2, 3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4);
Sigma Gamma (4).
RUTH is a rather industrious member of the Class of '32. She likes Latin
better than any other subject and devotes a great deal of time to studying
the language of the Romans. She has played a violin in the high school
orchestra for several years. Sometimes "Keener" is quiet and other times
noisy, but unfortunately - she is bashful. After finishing her high school
career, "Keener" expects to continue her education at Shippensburg State
Teachers' College. The Class of '32 wishes you success and has already
formed a picture of you before your first class.
HAROLD LANDIS KERN - "Kerny"
Hi-Y (3, 4), Commercial Club (3); Treasurer of Kodak Club (4); "Building a
"KERNY" is one of the boys who would be a billionaire if silence were
golden. Harold has selected the Commercial Course at Hershey after
graduating from the eighth grade at the Hershey Industrial School. "Kerny"
expects to extend his knowledge further at a Forestry school in Raleigh,
North Carolina. Mr. "So-and-So" says our forests need attention and the
Class of '32 is expecting great things of you, "Kerny."
ANNA MARGARET KRAFT - "Cheeser"
"Is that so!"
Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Mixed Chorus (2,4); Commercial Club (3); Sigma Gamma (4);
"Pioneer's Papoose": "Spanish Moon"; "Bab"; "Page the Prince."
OH! ANOTHER fair young damsel who is a well-known member of our class. She
has won many friends in school and has been active in school work. For
four long years this maiden has been training so that after graduating she
may engage in office work. She is uncertain whether it will be office or
house work. It all depends whether or not "Popeye" will "pop" the
question. All we can do for you, Anna, is to wish you much happiness.
SUSAN ALMEDA LANDIS - "Sue"
Broadcaster Staff (2); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Treasurer (4); Sigma Gamma (4);
"Page the Prince"; "Spanish Moon"; CHOCLATIER Staff, Alumni Editor (4);
Mixed Chorus (2, 3, 4); Declamation (1); Dramatic Club (3).
HERE, friends, is one of the popular girls of the Senior Class. She has
won many friends during her high school career and this may be attributed
to her fine personality. "Sue" has been an active member of the group and
has made quite a name for herself as a singer. Our little classmate has
interests in various lines, but is known best for her musical talent which
she displayed to us quite frequently. "Sue" expects to enter the
Polyclinic Hospital in Harrisburg, to become a nurse. If ever you feel
sick, just go there and "brown-eyes Susie" will help you to recover.
FRANCIS JOSEPH LENGLE - "Scoop"
Hi-Y (3); P. A. D. Club (4).
"SCOOP" is a great sport - that's everyone's idea. He loves a good joke
and a hearty laugh, would rather play than work, and is usually seen in
the company of the ladies. Francis is a carpenter, and thus far has
devoted himself to making houses for others, but we should not be
surprised if, in the near future, one should see him laboring on one for
himself - perhaps a bachelor's quarters but more likely not. Francis comes
from the Industrial School, which probably explains his taste for the fair
sex as well as his refreshing sense of humor.
ALBERT RUSSELL LINGLE - "Al," "Lingle"
Football (2); P. A. D. Club (4); Hi-Y (3).
ALBERT, who is a very studious young man, hails from Palmdale and is a
member of the Carpentry Department of the Vocational School. He is the
pride of Shakespeare's store, and spends most of his spare time riding the
roads of Middletown in his Ford. Albert experiences no difficulty in
mastering his subjects and is one of the pace-setters in the Vocational
Department. After graduation, "Al" expects to obtain a carpentry job with
the Hershey Estates.
DOROTHY IDA MAYS - "Mick"
"If it weren't for my sense of humor I'd go nuts!"
Dramatic Club (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Broadcaster Staff (3, 4); Senior
Council (4); Athletic Association Sec. (4); Sigma Gamma (4);
Editor-in-Chief CHOCLATIER (4); "Spanish Moon"; "Pioneer's Papoose";
"Building a Nation."
WHO is that with the lovely raven locks? It is none other than our
versatile Dorothy. She has an unlimited capacity for work, especially if
it is literary work. "Dot" has no end of ideas and a very pleasing way of
putting them into effect. Her choosing the Commercial Course indicates
that she is preparing for a stenographic career, but we shall be
disappointed if some future "best-sellers" do bear the name of Dorothy
Mays _____. That blank can be filled by anyone who observes the student
parade to and from school.
EDITH JEAN MENICHESCHI - "Edie"
"Isn't it swell, kid?"
Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4), Sigma Gamma (4); Mixed Chorus (4); Broadcaster Staff (4);
"Spanish Moon"; "Page the Prince."
EDITH is one of those happy occurrences - a real friend. Whenever "Edie"
is found - there you will see one or more girl friends. Although she has
stayed away from the opposite sex in her high school career, we believe
that the "strictly business" slogan will fail for lack of support once she
leaves high school for a business office. Even though she finds outside
diversions "Edie" is bound to succeed because of the whole-heartedness
with which she pursues whatever she sets out to do.
MARY LOUISE PELINO - "Popelina"
"Love 'em and leave 'em"
Mixed Chorus (2, 3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Sigma Gamma (4); Dramatic Club
(3); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); "Page the Prince"; "Pioneer's Papoose."
MARY is that industrious person you see strolling about with just simply
sheafs of work for other people. Her typing ability has won "Popelina" a
place where few may tread. In spite of her "love 'em and leave 'em" motto,
Mary pays little attention to the opposite sex. Surely, where thoughts are
centered so busily about studies - and some pleasure, of course - success
is bound to come. Mary will look for employment as a stenographer after
EVA SARA PETRUCCI - "Shorts"
Mixed Chorus (3, 4); Commercial Club (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); President of
the Dramatic Club (4); Sigma Gamma (4); "Pioneer's Papoose"; "Building a
HERE is another exponent of "good things come in small quantities."
"Shorts," as her name implies, may lack in stature, but she surely makes
it up in happiness. Eva is a regular "Pollyanna" girl - always laughing
and frequently talking. "Shorts" has shown herself to be possessed of a
goodly quantity of executive ability and charm, both traits which are not
lost upon the opposite sex. Eva's trimness would grace any business office
well, if she allows her business head to rule her heart and deserts the
home for the office.
Hi-Y (3, 4); P. A. D. Club; "Building a Nation."
LLOYD, better known as "Raffensparger" is a high-pressure salesman from
Carmany's store, where most of his time out of school is spent. Lloyd is
another senior who has gone vocational-minded, making Machine Shop
Practice his choice. Although he is very active at times, Lloyd is also
one of the Vocational School's most studious seniors. That big, brown
coupe also seems to make him a favorite among fellow students.
After graduation, Lloyd intends to enter the Browne and Sharpe
Apprenticeship School where he will take a course in Machine Shop
SARA ELIZABETH RHOADS - "Schnozzle"
Commercial Club (4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Sigma Gamma (4); Broadcaster Staff
OF ALL the perpetual laughs - here she is! This little girl is always
traveling around behind a flashing smile - a very contagious smile. Sara
has taken the Commercial Course and expects to utilize her training at the
desk of a business office. Of course, there is a chance that her lovely
smile will gaze from the window of her little home, but if she does work
in an office, she is sure to be successful - unless she dyes her hair!
HAROLD KREBS ROBERTSON - "Beno"
Hi-Y (3, 4); P. A. D. Club; Athletic Association; Baseball (4).
"BENO" another product of the Industrial School, is that institution's
most athletic figure. He is an all-around sport and has majored in
baseball, basketball, and football, having many H. I. S. letters to his
credit. In his senior year he was a member of Hershey High's pitching
staff. As a student of Machine Shop Practice in the Voca-School, "Beno"
hopes to obtain employment in the Hershey Chocolate Corporation Machine
Shop as soon as he has finished his high school work.
ELINOR LOUISE ROCKWELL - "Lee"
Sigma Gamma (4); Tri-Hi-Y (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); Mixed Chorus (4); "Bab."
OF ALL the fair maidens in the senior class, it is needless to say that
"Lee" is outstanding. She came to Hershey High in her senior year, and her
winning smile and personality immediately found their way into the hearts
of all her fellow students. Playing the role of "Bab" in the senior class
play of the same name, she more than proved her ability as an actress.
After graduation from Hershey High, "Lee" intends to continue at an
institution of higher learning, where she expects to qualify herself for a
position as teacher of Home Economics.
GLADYS IRENE RUMPF - "Bugs"
Mixed Chorus (2, 3, 4), Secretary (4); Class Secretary (3); Broadcaster
Staff (3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4), Vice-President of Sigma Gamma (4);
Assistant Basketball Manager (3); Senior Council (4); "Pioneer's Papoose";
"Spanish Moon"; "Page the Prince"; "Bab."
YES, she's a heartbreaker. Gladys is no small combination of talents and
whims. In addition to her typing and musical ability. "Buts" possesses a
rare art in the field of acting and ensnaring of the opposite sex. But
anyone with such a captivating smile and hearty laugh is sure to be
successful - perhaps famous. We predict that she will not be long in an
office - not thru lack of ability, but through some man's stubbornness of
KENNETH THADDEUS RUPP - "Do-die"
Hi-Y (3, 4)
ALTHOUGH he is the class' smallest in stature, Kenneth is by no means the
weakest in speech. He always has a friendly word or two at hand for
everyone and takes great pleasure in doing something for his fellow
students. His choice as a student of Printing in the Vocational School is
quite adverse to his favorite hobby, for Kenneth's greatest enjoyment
comes from "operating" on bicycles and motorcycles. "Ruppy's" greatest
ambition is to be employed as a printer in a local newspaper
RUBY VIOLA SAUFLEY - "Saufley"
Travel Club (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Mixed Chorus (4); Dramatic Club (4);
Sigma Gamma (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4).
UNASSUMING litter farmerette! We are firmly convinced that clear country
air makes clearer minds - and more brilliant ones. You would be convinced
of this fact, too, if you ever should hear Ruby air her sweet, unaffected
ideas in a very low, cultured voice, but the occasion is rare. Although
Ruby's time is absorbed by many classes, she always manages to stand near
the head in her studies. She reads shorthand in an endless, rapid stream,
and has acquired such proficiency in typing that she is usually doing work
for some teacher.
MARY-BELLE SEAVERS - "Seavers"
"Oh, darn it!"
Dramatic Club (3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Sigma Gamma (4); "Page the Prince";
OF COURSE, we all have our interests. Mary's chief interest is named
"Dick." She can be seen after Tri-Hi-Y Meeting, Sigma Gamma Meeting, and
just plain meetings, strolling homeward or maybe not so homeward, with
Dick. "Seavers" has taken the Commercial course, and aspires to be a
typist, hoping, of course, that she won't have much shorthand. Mary is an
industrious worker, and the results she brings in during cake or wreathe
sales are proof enough of this.
PAUL SAMUEL SHAFFER - "Corporal"
Hi-Y (3); P. A. D. Club (4); "Building a Nation."
PAUL, better known as "Corporal," is another of the group of seniors
hailing from the Industrial School. He is a member of the Printing
Department of the Vocational School and is quite an expert at the
linotype. Paul is one of the quiet type and never speaks unnecessarily,
believing that noise is annoying. After leaving Hershey High, he hopes to
obtain a position as a printer in some large city, where he may use his
ability to the best advantage.
REBA GAYNELLE SHANK - "Shankie"
"Oh, my heavens!"
Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Harmonica Club (2); Needlecraft Club (3); Mixed Chorus
(4); Sigma Gamma (4); "Page the Prince."
REBA is such a quiet little mousie that we hold her up as a silent partner
in the brain corporation. Reba has always made a good showing in her
school work. Her hair has just enough curl to it, and her eyes are a
source of envy - such a stormy, yet tranquil blue. She is a busy little
housekeeper, and if we are any judge, we'll wager there is no dust in the
corners of her rooms. Reba, in her unostentatious way, has been a valuable
addition to the organizations she has joined in school, and we believe she
will be just as valuable in any field of activity she chooses.
WILBUR CARL SHANK - "Red"
"Well, I'll be - ?"
Hi-Y (3, 4); Debating, Captain of Negative Team (4); Kodak Club, President
(4); Commercial Club (3).
FOLKS, don't be alarmed when I tell you that this is "Einstein the
Second." He doesn't want anyone to know it, but after he finishes storing
up knowledge, he intends to show the real Einstein a few things; please
don't tell Einstein about it, for it may spoil "Red's" plans. This
representative from Bull Frog Valley is also quite a debator, this forte
being proved by the fine work he did as Captain of the Negative Team.
After graduation "Red" will enter some higher institution of learning to
study Mechanical Engineering. His success is assured if he does his work
as he did it at Hershey High.
WILLIAM ESLEY SHIVELY - "Bill"
Class President (3); Track (3, 4); Hi-Y (3); Athletic Association
President (4); Senior Council (4); P. A. D. Club (4); "Pioneer's Papoose";
"Bab"; "Building a Nation."
"BILL" is probably the most popular Industrial School boy in the Class of
'32, as can be seen by his list of activities. He is another of the
mainstays on Industrial School athletic teams, being a letter man in both
baseball and basketball. He was also a member of the Hershey High Track
Squad in his junior and senior years. His winning smile has won the hearts
of all his fellow students, as well as those of many others, and no favor
is too much for him to do.
"Bill" is a member of the vocational Department and a student of Machine
Shop Practice. He expects to be employed in the Hershey Chocolate
Corporation Machine Shop, when he has completed his high school course.
RUSSELL BERMAN SINGER - "Al"
"Stick up your mitts!"
Dramatic Club (4); Mixed Chorus (3); Hi-Y (3, 4).
"AL," a product of the Hershey Industrial School, is the class pugilist,
as is shown by his favorite expression.
He is quick-tempered, but those who know him find him a sincere friend and
one who is always willing to help.
He is a great sport enthusiast and is a member of the Industrial School
basketball and baseball teams. It seems that "Al" has chosen the vocation
of coaching for his occupation when his school days are over. The Class
wishes you the best of luck, "Al," and sees a successful future for you.
HARRY BARR SNAVELY - "Popeye"
"Boy, she's hot!"
Football (1, 2, 3); Basketball (2, 3); Hi- (3, 4); Science Club (3);
Senior Athletic Club (4).
BARR, alias General H. B. "Popeye" Snavely, is one of the prominent
"bad-boys" of the class, and his friends must always be on the lookout for
one of his pranks. Barr won much fame during his senior year through his
splendid service on the varsity football team. He is a very active chap
and is always ready to come back for more no matter what he may be up
against. He intends to enter Penn State College where he will take a
course in either engineering or business.
EARL LEROY SNYDER - "Cakie"
"Yes Sir! Yes Sir!"
Hi-Y (3, 4); Mixed Chorus (4); P. A. D. Club (4); "Building a Nation."
"CAKIE" is this chap's name, but do not let the name infer too much, for
he is human and not anything to eat. For some unknown reason boys from the
Industrial School have a tendency to take up shop work and this lad is no
exception. Printing has been his choice of vocations. After leaving
Hershey High he hopes to get a job as a printer.
BOYD LAYMAN SPONAUGLE - "Okie"
"Come on, Gang!"
Football (2, 3, 4); Basketball (2, 3, 4); Baseball (4); Broadcaster Staff
(3, 4), Editor-in-Chief (4); Vice-President of Class (2); Varsity H Club
(3); Hi-Y (3, 4); "Spanish Moon."
AS EDITOR-IN-CHIEF of the Hershey Broadcaster, Boyd has filled the
position very well. His sincere efforts have shown that a thing can be a
success if you are really determined. This country lad displayed much
ability as an athlete - especially in football and basketball. Besides
participating in these activities, "Okie" has maintained a high standing
in his scholastic work, and will probably attend Penn State.
OLIVER WILLIAM SWARTZ - "Ollie"
"Well, gee whiz!"
Mixed Chorus (2); CHOCLATIER Staff (2) Football (2, 3); Assistant
Basketball Mgr. (3); Commercial Club (3); Hi-Y (3, 4); Debating (4);
Broadcaster (4); Associate Editor of CHOCLATIER (4); Track Manager (4);
GAZE upon the countenance of a future business man. "Ollie" has put much
of his time acting as business manager for some organization or other, but
this has not prevented his class marks from soaring at the head of the
list. "Ollie" has shown his ability as a speaker on the Debating Team. As
a sophomore he devoted much time to football, but later abandoned this for
executive positions. As a track manager his efficiency cannot be
surpassed. Oliver expects to take a course in accounting at the Wharton
School, University of Pennsylvania.
GEORGE EUGENE TRUMP - "Trumpie"
ACCORDING to George's list of extra-curricular activities, it appears that
he is evidently not interested in them. He was one of the group who
changed his course of study during the Sophomore year, when the new
Vocational School was opened. Since then this curly-haired lad has been
practicing and gathering information so that some day he will become an
"Trumpie" is a fine chap and a good friend. If you don't believe us just
get acquainted with him and you will soon find out.
EMMA ANNIE WALMER - "Blue Eyes"
"Oh, darn it!"
French Club (3); Commercial Club (3); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Sigma Gamma (4);
CHOCLATIER Staff (4).
OH, those blue eyes! Emma has them - and curly lashes. Although she has
taken the Commercial Course, we wouldn't be surprised to see her nimble
fingers gracing a home instead of busily flying over typewriter keys in
someone's office. "Blue Eyes" is an accomplished typist, and is hoping to
find occupation on someone's office force. If there is any room for
advancement, we predict that Emma's industrious work will promote her to
LILLIAN ESTHER WELCHANS - "Lou"
Mixed Chorus (2, 3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Home Economics Club (3); Sigma
IF YOU see a happy smile beaming up the corridor, you know Lillian is back
of it all. "Lou" possesses a jolly spirit which is well accented by her
friendly spirit. Although she has taken the Preparatory Course, Lillian
expects to work for a time after her graduation. Then she wants to go to
Normal School to prepare herself for the profession of a music teacher.
PAUL LEROY WENRICH - "Duke"
"I'll get ya fer that!"
Football ( 1, 2, 3, 4); Captain (3, 4); Basketball (2, 3, 4); President of
Class (2); Hi-Y Treasurer (3, 4); Broadcaster Staff (3); Varsity H Club
(3); Mixed Chorus (2); Athletic Assoc. Treas. (4); Senior Athletic Club
President (4); CHOCLATIER Staff (4); "Spanish Moon"; "Bab"; Senior Council
(4); "Building a Nation."
BY GLEANING back over the last four years, records show that "Duke" has
been quite active and popular. He is one of the best athletes of the
class, being on the Hershey High football team for four consecutive years.
Not only has his ability been shown in athletics, but also in scholastic
achievements and various activities in which he participated. In addition
to school work, Paul has devoted some time to a certain senior girl - aw,
use your imagination. The 'farmer lad' is planning to take a course in
ELEANOR KATHRYN WOLFE - "Wolfey"
Domestic Arts Club (3, 4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4); Sigma Gamma (4).
SOME people are noted for having looks which unintentionally deceive.
Eleanor is one of those people. She is, in appearance, shy, bashful, and
quiet, but the idea vanishes when she speaks. Eleanor is jolly and
friendly, and what shyness she possesses she hides behind a cheerful
smile. And what intelligence that little head holds under those curls! Not
that Eleanor would admit it - no, she's not that type. She actually seems
to enjoy study; however, we predict a future of homemaking - for Merle.
MILDRED MAY ZIMMERMAN - "Zimmie"
"Come on! Come on!"
Hockey (1); Track (1); Basketball (1,2); Manager of Girls' Basketball (4);
String Band (3); Red Cross (4); Sigma Gamma (4); Tri-Hi-Y (3, 4).
ALTHO' she deserted the sports world for her studies in the latter years
of high school, somehow we always think of "Zimmie" as the ideal
all-around girl. She takes a medium amount of interest in school work and
a like amount of interest in pleasure. Though she no longer plays
basketball, Mildred was placed as the team's Manager, and she has filled
that position well.
