STEVE Tl SAN
BY ROHLRT KovAcH
Many many years ago to be exact, the year
one thousand nrne hundred and forty two the
mrghty class of 48 stormed the tranqurl halls of
Stephen S Palmer Hrgh School
Havrng establrshed our foothold we ad
vanced rnto a world of seemrng confusron The
resrstance was terrlble especrally when everyone
was gorng the other way those perplexrng traf
frc rules' Our rnexperrence was very embar
rassrng for we were constantly walking rnto
classes wrth strange faces peering at us and at
tendrng our classes on numerous occasrons wrth
out books would w e ever remember those locker
keys ' We drd attempt to further our educ H1011
although our study w as directed tow ard the mas
terrng of the teachers nrcknames
In our erghth year we were 1 lrttle more sea
soned but strll it trmes we were even more
rble and prodrgrous course rn gurd ance
As freshmen we felt grext prrde rs we begam
to shape our future by choosrng our course and
selectrng subyects whrch would lerd us to our
rs an voa ra L1llOI1 ur esrres os ire e
prrvrleges of thc upperclrssmen were pnrtrilly
fulfrlled when is sophomores we guned the
drstrnctron of rttencirng senror hrgh assemblres
As yunrors we show ed great 1nrt1at1ve for we
rnaugurated the frrst Dunglree Dance wrth as
tonrshrng success Our H rllowe en Socral lrlcewrse
w ent oy er the top to est rblrsh 1 record We ac
complrshed a great deal of work that year and
we felt rewarded for we had garned experience
Then came the first day of our last year of
school we fmally experrenced the overpow errng
sensatrons of berng Sefzzmrf Our l rrday Ijnglrsh
classes shaped themselves rnto more than mere
oral toprcs Numerous demonstratrons were the
rage Wlll we ever forget the correct and proper
postures for the stage demonstrated so ably by
Our scnror class meetings certarnly were hrl
arrous zffarrs What would we do wrthout our
advrsersf However we did accomplish a great
deal our record speaks for rtself We had not
only rnrtr ltrxe but also talent for our highly suc
cessful senror class play proved that we had
Our senror mrth clrss nerrly engrneered l
rn iyor upset to revolutionize the lckert 'I heory
lhe professor w IS c aught Ill the act of chewrng
rum thrt rs The custom ary whrte slrp of
paper w rs bravely passed to our mrth genlus
But the mrghty professor still relgns supreme
As 1 conclusron to our years of eventful w orlt
md pl ry cunc our f'n1l exercrses The Src
c rlaurelte berxrce The l rrewell Assembly and
Commencement Pxercrses We h rvc strugglcd
but we have re rched our goal XVe hope to suc
ceed by followrng rn the footsteps of others who
have succeeded Now we brd farewell to Stephen
S Prlmer l-lrgh School and our truc friends

which lay ahead of hum
The decoratmg commlttee was already well on
the way to transforming the gym mto a garden They
had begun to put up the white fence wrth the rvy
entwnned and had frmshed hanging the green streamers
wrth whtte carnatnons attached at the wmdows The
refreshment commrttee was also busy decoratmg t

After what seemed an endless time thc drsmlssal
bell had frnally rung The gurls rushed home to put
up thcrr harr and the boys cleaned the car
Havmg added the flnal touches the varxous com
mrttces went home at last Ihe freshly decorated gym
was deserted Whrlc rn each homc we found the
students ncrxously drcssrng for the g1la occasion and
praying for the ram to cease

cyuestron of thc corrcct posrtron for the corsagc they
dashed out to the ctr and were on thcrr way Luckrly
the ram had stopped though the skles drd not look
Upon reachmg the hugh school they were frrst
greeted by Mlss ames and then proceeded to the gym
where the musxc of the Modernanres met therr ears
The musrc was so mvrtmg they began to dance and
contlnued untrl mtermrssron
Durrng the rntermrssron they retrred to the re
freshment room where they had a chance to see how
Suddenly thc lrghts went out and the emergency Irghts
went on No one seemed to know exactly what had
Returnrng to the dance floor we found the orches

flew by and before we reallzed lt the orchestra was
playing tts frnal number In a hort time the gurls and

they could get something to cat
With eyclnds droopmg they frnally reached home

Next to mvade Palmerton was a trrcky
Stroudsburg team In thus fray the Bombers showed
slrght srgns of offensne povrer but therr defense
was ragged and the Mountarneers went home wrth
a 27 to 12 vrctory
For therr frrst away game of the season the
Blue Bombers journeyed to Catasauqua where they
encountered a team vshrch was also havrng trouble
gettrng started because of rnexperrence Both teams
appeared to be somewhat rmproved rn this battle
and the final score of 17 all showed the relatlve
strengths of the teams better than anythmg else
Bob Romlg Bomber captain cut loose rn thrs game
and scored both Blue and White touchdowns oner Slopr U7b1telmllBack
In the fourth game of thc season the Bombers
looked highly rmprovcd as they outplayed and out
fought a Bangor hrgh school te1m but lost a heart
breaker 7 to 0 Thrs game played under the lrghts
at Bangor saw Coach Young s charges drrve deep
mto cnemy territory several trmes only to falter
at the goal lrne
Then on October 24 powerful Northampton a team whrch had been rollrng up seven erght or mne touch
dovx ns against every league team they had played came to Palmerton to supposedly grve the unvrctorrous Bombers
a trouncrng By this trme hoxxever those boys who had been so green at the begrnnrng of the season were now
experienced ball players and after the flrst few mmutes of the game the Konkrete Krds knew they were rn for a
real tussle 'lhey dld finally wm 13 to 7 and the Bombers were strll wrthout a vrctory but they had now tasted
glory and were just wartm 1 for the next game In thrs game rm Clark scored the only touchdown a league team
had scored on Northampton on a 73 yard jaunt
At Emmaus the followmg week the Blue Bomb
ers looked very lxttle lrke the team that lost their frrst
two games a month before as they trounced the
Green and Gold 25 to 0 Romrg scored three trmes rn
thrs game and Clark once on a 90 yard run
Lehrghton boasting the frnest record rn the hrs
tory of their school was the next team to mvade
Palmcrton When the final whistle had sounded
therr record was consrderably damaged by a 19 0 loss
at the hands of Palmerton Romrg once agam scored
two touchdowns and ohnny ones broke mto the
scormg wrth one
The following Saturday provcd fatal for the
Bombers as they were whrpped by a classy Wrlson
Boro team 26 to 17 The sprrrt that the team had
possessed rn the three preceding games seemed to be
lacking rn thls game and though they put up a gal
lant frght with ones runnrng 95 yards wrth an rn
tercepted pass for a touchdown we had to admrt that
Wrlson Boro had a strong aggressrve team
Touchdown Bound Cold wrnds and frozen ground greeted the Bombers
