If you want a newline, you have to write one explicitly. The usual way is like this:
hs.write(name + "\n")
This uses a backslash escape,
\n, which Python converts to a newline character in string literals. It just concatenates your string,
name, and that newline character into a bigger string, which gets written to the file.
