Reading the 'Printing-Usage' howto and man printcap give 2 solutions.
As you don't seem to have those docs (?)

Printing-Usage says to invoke the printer with the -h to suppress hte
'burst page' ie lpr -h thesis.txt

man printcap  says thæt :sh:  will suppress the burst header page.

Man, am I glad I run Linux.  Sooo much information available to solve
so many problems.  Of course you have to RTFM.

Why do they call this a word processor? It's simple, ... you've seen
what food processors do to food, right?
