The Class of 1952 proudly dedicates this issue of
L' ANNUAIRE to Mr. joseph Foran . . . teacher, coach,
and friend. Under his guidance the Blue Bombers
brought home the first undefeated season in football and
the first Lehigh Valley League Championship.
In our yearbook, we have attempted to convey to you the story of our
high school days by comparing our growth and development with the maturing
of a young and vigorous tree. Here is our story, from the time when we were
mere sprouts in the soil of S. S. Palmer High School, to the time when we
blossomed forth as Seniors.
Shiftless little seeds we were, wandering aimlessly about, when suddenly
our teachers seized us and sowed us firmly in the fertile soil of P. H. S. While
they cultivated and guided us, we grew into young but unsteady plants.
Then, as growing trees, we craved food
and nourishment, and this we found in
the many activities afforded us in our
school. With these new interests we be- ,X
gan to broaden and, while our limbs
reached higher and higher, our roots ,
spread deeper and deeper. ll!
When the storms came with their wind K'
and rain, we searched for health and l
strength to keep our branches in tact. 1
W'e turned to sports and there, through K
competition and sportsmanship, we MMI' lllwll
learned to withstand the elements of ' 7 l
Soon, as budding underclassmen, we
became curious as to what was in store rr
for us. Peeking out from our tight, green
shells, we looked forward with anticipa-
tion to a bright and promising future.
Suddenly our opportunity arrived and,
blossomed forth as mature Seniors. The
tree had reached its greatest height and I
we had reached our goal, graduation.

Mr. Donald Denniston, a mid-westerner by birth,
came to Palmerton in 1926 to replace Dr. Roeder as
Principal of Stephen S. Palmer High School. Before
coming to Palmerton, Mr. Denniston had been teach-
ing in Sioux City, Iowa.
He is an avid basketball fan, and rarely misses a
ame. He also enjoys a good football game and can
be seen cheering the team to victory. In the
winterhe enjoys ice skating at the Memorial Park.
Our Principal is also an active member of the
Board of Trade, the Exchange Club, and the Ameri-
Office Secretaries Helen Olivia, Anna Becker,
and Gladys Zeigenfus.
Dr. jesse Roeder first arrived in Palmerton in
1921 as a member of the high school faculty. He was
soon advanced to the position of Principal and in
1926 became Superintendent of Schools in Palmerton.
It is Dr. Roeder who sees that P.H.S. has all the
modern facilities possible. I-le attends many state and
national conventions in order to keep up with the
latest trends in education.
When asked what he does in his spare time, Dr.
Roeder smiles and says he has so many activities that
he can hardly squeeze in all of them. He enjoys
playing golf and bridge. The Board of Trade, Lehigh
Valley Motor Club, Board of Health, County Crippled
Children's Committee, and the American Legion also
claim much of his time outside of school.

Today we are graduates! lt seems as though it
were just a few months ago that we entered the
auditorium of our Alma Mater as seventh graders.
How different it was then! XVe were all bewildered,
shy, and a little scared. As we advanced through
seventh grade we gained confidence, ably guided by
such teachers as Miss Treweek, Miss Boyer, Mr.
Berger, and Mr. Hunsiclcer.

The following year when we returned as
eighth graders, it was a different group of boys
and girls who were seated in the auditorium.
Most of the timidness and fright were gone.
Beginning our second year of junior high
we moved right into the swing of things. We
renewed old acquaintances and made many new

Under the guidance of Mr. Messe-rsmith, Mr.

In our Freshman year our athletic activities
began. In seventh grade some of the members
of the class had joined musical organizations,
but now it was the athletes' turn. It was also
our first meeting with such teachers as Miss

At this time the social events and extra things were becoming increasingly important
to us. No one will ever forget our class parties and the good times we had at our
annual outings at Saylor's Lake.
The high point of our junior year was the Halloween Social. For weeks prior to the
big event the members of the class worked hard to make our social the best ever
given at Palmerton High. During the day we struggled with Mr. Eckert's plane
geometry propositions and Mr. Bl'ynn's history tests. We thought we'd never pass some
of those difficult courses.

as they won 27-6.
The next game on tap saw the mighty Koncrete Kids from Nor-

the power of the Blue and White of P.H.S. ,,
For the first time in the history of football at Palmerton, the Lehigh
Valley League crown and an undefeated season were both in sight as
the Bombers opposed the Green Hornets at Emmaus.
Sporting victory smiles are Assistant Coaches Holly
wood and Blynn and Head Coach Foran.
Going into the game a seven point underdog did
not seem to affect the Bombers as they scored the
second time they got the ball. From this point on,
sustained drives sent Werkheiser, Blynn, the Shiner
brothers, and Meinhart into paydirt, as the Hornets
were whipped 41-7.
Returning to the home stamping grounds, the
Bombers, after a slow first hal, teed off on the

field before almost four thousancii anxious fans. Early
in the first quarter "Andy" Wasilkowski swept 28
yards through the Slatington team for a touch own.
Doug Shiner promptly picked a fumbled pass out
of the air and, aided by fine blocking, ran the rest
of the way for a TD. Wasilkowski scored twice more,
on an intercepted pass and on a short line buck, to
put the final score at 25-0.
The Zinc Boro Lads in winning eight straight
games and their first Lehigh Valley League Cham-
ionship displayed the brand of ball playing and
fine sportsmanship that is the dream of every coach.
This is partly what helped the Palmerton High squad
to be ranked fifth in District XI and twentieth in

The absence of height presented
itself as the redominant factor of
the 1951-52 hoop campaign as the
Bombers completed the season with
a 12-9 record.
Coach Joe Foran molded his
team around the two sharp-shooting
guards, Harry Mihalik and Fred
Oravec. Richard Werkheiser and
Tom Naratil provided the little
height that was to be had, while the
fine ball handling of Ed Shiner and
George Perish aided the team a
great deal. Other capable reserves
were Stanley Mesaros, Doug Shiner,
Richard Merics, and Steve Sebo.

bowing by close margins. The rest
of the exhibition games brought
their share of thrills and the Bomb-

first few league games before fal-

The girls' team, coached by Miss Emma Schlegel, enjoyed an ex-
cellent season, not only winning the league championship, but also
going through their nine game schedule undefeated.
Captained by Ann Barnett, the bomberettes used their height ad-
vantage and accuracy. to post their perfect record. In doing so, they
posted scores seldom heard of in girls' competition.
Katherine Feder, junior, and Sophomores Adela Garcia and Catherine
Werkheiser provided the scoring punch for the team, while Senior
guards Joanne Matuska, Betty Homewood, and Ann Barnett did an
excellent job in controlling the banking boards. Other worthy re-
serves were Shirley Nothstein, Margie Andrews, Dorothy Buhay, Ellen
Schuler, Nancy jendricks, Marie Silliman, and Rose Neff.

The team, although ending up with a 4-5 slate showed marked improvement over
last season. Seniors john Kresge, Bruce Snyder, joe Nagy, Pete Blynn, Ronald Cos- '
tenbader, Andy Wasilkowski, and Tom Naratil formed the nucleus of the diamond
nine. Fate befell the team at the half-way mark when they went into a four game losing
streak. Top sluggers were Costenbader at 393, Nagy at 360, and Werkheiser at .348.
Wasilkowski led the pitchers with a 3-3 slate.

Senior Coach Ann Barnett holds an important
conference with her team before game time.
Although boys' intramural activities were temporarily
abandoned, the girls carried on a full program, including
basketball, volleyball, and track.
Interest and competition was exceptionally keen this year
among the numerous teams coached by helpful Senior girls.
Each contest was played under the official rules of the
game with referees and time keepers aiding in all pro-
Probably the highlight of the season was the final event
of the year, the intramural track meet, in which the boys
also held their events. Plans are being prepared to make
this an annual event.
Miss Schegel and her staff of girls who helped so will-
ingly in the planning and presentation of this fine program
are to be congratulated for the fine job they did.
Fast action in some girls' intramural basketball contests.
Its fifth year of organization
proved to be an active one for the
Varsity Club. Under the guidance
of Mr. Wilhelm, Sponsor, and of-
ficers-Tom Naratil, President,
Pete Blynn, Vice President, Pete
Turko, Treasurer, Carl Kelchner,
Sergeant-at-Armsg and Bruce Sny-
der, Secretary, the group sponsored
social activities and various athletic
attractions. Among them were a
gymnastic exhibition by the East
Stroudsburg State Teachers College
Gym Team, a donkey basketball
game, and a spring jamboree.

The annual Senior outing at Saylor's
Lake was another event eagerly anticipated
by the whole class. Monday, june 9, was
the date set for our outing.
Oh, how we watched the clouds get
blacker and blacker on that day. We
feared we would have to stay home.
When it began to rain our spirits really
sunk. With only faint hopes of being
allowed to go we picked u our bathing
suits and went to school? The more
people that arrived, the more determined
By the time most of the class had ar-
rived, the sun began to peek through the
clouds. We loaded our cars and drove

The Commencement Reception was a perfect
en ing for our last night in P.H.S.
' aw aafwaa
We, the Class of 1952, find it difficult to say good-bye.
But we have reached the all important point in our career
-graduation-the time when the cherished, long-awaited
diplomas will be placed in our eager hands. Our thoughts
automatically turn to the day when we embarked on our
voyage through Palmerton High School. The menacing
waves of knowledge lashed angrily at our ship. We were
destined for unknown joys and difficulties.
As we reached our second year, with an eye to the
future, we planned our course through uncharteted seas.
Only with the aid of our sister-ships-Juniors, Seniors and
faculty--were we able to survive.
By our third year of service we had acquired sea legsg
we were now more adapted to the routine of our duties.
We set the pace for leadership, both in sports and social
Throughout our fourth year we displayed our athletic
prowess by an undefeated football squad, and our dra-
matic ability in the presentation of the comedy, "Growing
Pains." With our journey nearing its end we all looked
forward to the Senior Prom. Finally our ship will drop
anchor, our destination shall have been reached. With
happiness for our success, but regret for those who have
not completed the journey, we shall receive our cherished
diplomas at Commencement.
Some of our shipmates are looking forward to another voyage on the Sea of Knowl-
edge, while others are satisfied with the knowledge they have acquired on this trip.
It is safe to say, however, that proud of our past achievements and anxious for new
opportunities, we will throw ourselves whole-heartedly into every worthy and noble
venture. Obstacles are but a challenge to our courage. We recognize and appreciate
the efforts exerted by our teachers, through whose guidance and patience we have
come prepared to accept those challenges which will be offered in the wider fields
opening before us. Those of us boarding the ship again, regretfully wave good-bye
to those on shore-our loyal friends, teachers, and the sheltering arms of our Alma
Mater. The joyful years that we have spent here we will never forget-Bon Voyage.
