This issue of THE STEVENS marks the fortieth anniversary of Thaddeus Stevens Junior High
School. We are proud of the past forty years. Stevens Junior High has contributed much to the
community in public service as well as in education. We look now to the future with the belief
that our graduating ninth graders will continue to reflect our school's fine reputation.
THE STEVENS' STAFF
To Mrs. Beatrice Brown, the staff of THE STEVENS dedicates this issue.
Mrs. Brown, last year, revived an almost extinct yearbook and returned it to
the foreground of Stevens Junior High life. The entire school is grateful
for her patience, efforts, and inspiration. We wish her the best in her
association with Lock Haven State College.

STEVENS RECALL . . .
This year our school, Stevens Junior High, is having its fortieth birthday. That might seem like a long, long
time to some people, and they might think that after so many years, a building would begin to show its age---
but not Stevens.
Situated on the northern hill of our city, the school overlooks the central part of Williamsport. It is surrounded
by stately elm trees, graceful evergreens, and beautiful green lawns. On either side of the main entrance there are
Japanese cherry blossom trees, and both students and teachers alike look forward to April, "cherry blossom time at
Stevens." The school, built of dark red brick and trimmed in Indiana limestone, was constructed in the elegant
style of Collegiate Gothic architecture. This particular type of architecture, popular during the nineteenth and
early twentieth centuries, was so well liked that it was used by famous universities, such as Yale, Harvard, Oxford,
In addition to having educated about 8400 students, Stevens has contributed many services to our city, for
example, during the floods of '36 and '46, Acting as a refuge center, the school housed between 900 and 1000
people for almost a week during the crises. Meals were served in the cafeteria, babies' formulas were prepared
in the home economics department, and the guidance room was the doctor's headquarters. The gym and halls
were used as dormitories.
Stevens has also served the city in other ways. It is a fall-out shelter in time of danger, it provides a play-
ground in the summer, and it's a distribution center for polio vaccines. In addition, the gymnasium is used almost
every night of the week by different teams from throughout the city.
We Stevens students are proud of our school's history. Its many athletic records, musical and artistic achieve-
ments, Christmas programs, and scholastic honors are known by everyone. Good luck, Stevens! All we Hilltoppers,
past and present, wish you well. Many many more happy birthdays!

STEVENS JUNIOR HIGH SCHCDOL BAND
"Principals and Their Principles"
In its forty-year history Stevens has had four great principals.
The first, Mr. Harvey E. Stabler, served from 1927 to 1942. ln organizing the school, it might be
said that Mr. Stabler had two great dreams for Stevens. One was to establish high academic standards,
and the other was to beautify Stevens' campus so that in future years it would become a showplace of
Williamsport. He, assisted by Stevens' students, planted the entire hillside with bushes and evergreens.
At the entrance of the school they planted two lovely cherry blossom trees, and around the building
they placed many bushes and flowers. When Mr. Stabler retired, a graceful oak tree was planted on
the campus in his memory.
Our second principal Mr. C. Grover Hyman, the late husband of our librarian, served for twenty-
one years. Before his appointment lslr. Hyman was principal at Transeau.
When MJ. Hyman died in 1963, Dr. Hugh Fredericks, guidance counselor at Stevens, succeeded
him. He remained in this capacity for two years. He is now school psychologist.
Our present principal, Mr. William K. A-iiller, a former principal at Washington and Clay, was a
member of Stevens' first graduating class. How fitting that he should return as a principal, to his
AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS CLUB
STEVENS' RECALLS . . .
Graduation rehearsal, and all we ninth graders are sitting in the auditorium awaiting directions. Our last ap-
pearance must be in the finest Stevens' tradition. Graduation? Seems unbelievable that three years have passed
since that exciting day when we trudged up Stevens' hill to become "big kids." We were scared, excited, and un
sure as we listened to Dr. Fredericks' instructions, but within a couple days' time we knew in which direction the
cafeteria was, and that sometimes those paddles were really used.
Yes, we have lots of memories to take along . . . our first pep meeting was fabulous, and we all went to
sleep that night visualizing ourselves as vivacious cheerleaders, drum majorettes, Blue and Gray band members,
or heroic football players, Then came the activities . . . Y-Teens with its zany initiation, chorus and band
for the musical, library for the literary, art for the creative, cheering and majorettes for the agile, and sports
for the athletic. Our first Friday night dance at the Y was a little disappointing when we were shoved upstairs
into that tiny room. "A Christmas Carol", our holiday operetta, put a few seventh graders in the spotlight and
was the highlight of the season.
.Some of us fell for the fads . . . Beatle haircuts, short hemlines, teased hair, and that thing called the
Oh, yes, midyears and finals, and then it was June.
After riot enough swimming and fun we returned to Stevens as wise eighth graders to be greeted by our new
principal, William K. Miller, who immediately won our admiration and respect. We laughed at the confused,
little seventh graders. How young!
Big changes that year . . . Student council . . . double cafeteria lines . . . new IBM report cards . . .
visual aid club members tinkering with numerous gadgets . . . groovy cheering uniforms . . . the return of
"The Stevens" . . . Lawn crews, Air. Nliller's "chosen few" . . . door decorating contest . . . and of course,
our exciting eighth grade party when we all wore our best wranglers.
Oh yes, " Batman" was the T.V. hero . . . hemlines grew shorter! I I . . . Nancy Sinatra and her "boots
made for walking" was our favorite . . . long hair for both boys and girls and absolutely no curls-and droopy
Ninth graders at last . . . the V I P's of Stevens! School spirit was high, some times even higher than
our football scores, but we never quit. Who could forget that final game with Curtin, and the tied score?
Again many innovations . . . a new trophy case in the front hall, a band front to carry our colorful new
flags, those two and a half days of torturous Iowa tests with all of us crowded in the gym, and the day we took
the bus to hear the wonderful Baltimore Symphony. We behaved perfectly, because --- well, you know why!
Fads continued . . . "Night Train" was a must and we listened faithfully, pierced ears was a new status
symbol, everyone did the "Philly Dog" and the "Skate"g some of us became daring and bleached our hair,
hemlines crept up higher!!
Then who could forget the ninth grade party? It was a night to be cherished forever . . .
Yes, tomorrow night will be the real thing . . . Graduation . . . We will leave Stevens forever, but even
after we move on to the Cherry and White, we will always carry a little Blue and Gray in our hearts.
