Our constitution signed with the ink hardly dried, the Shutterbug Camera Club of Brackenridge,
backed by our loyal sponsor, Miss Lucille Wharton, comes to the end of its first year of existence. Being
Brackenridge's youngest club, the Shutterbug Club is by no means the least active. It is devoted to
better photography at school and in the home. One may expect a flash at any time and Wherever there
is a flash, there is a Shutterbug. Many a student finds himself in an awkward position when that flash
takes place. Of course, photography is not our only activity. We indulge in many social events and
other sports. One of our socials Was a picnic at which photography Was the main sport. Everyone was
there except the sunl
We hold many of our meetings in the dark room-Knot the kind you think, boysl. There We de-
velop all kinds of pictures-some with the feet Where the head should be and vice versa. All in all, We
have a grand time in the Shutterbug Club.
With grateful hearts that We live in a freedom-loving democracy Where We have the privilege of
doing and saying as We Wish, the Shutterbugs strive constantly to maintain their goal-that of being
better citizens of the United States of America. -Iohn Iones.

The San Antonio Council of the lunior Red Cross meets once a month in the library of Tech Senior
High School. Ioyce Vance, representing our school, was chosen president of the San Antonio Council
for the year. Each school in Bexar County sends a representative, an alternate, and a sponsor. At
these monthly meetings, such things were discussed as the making of portfolios for foreign countries,
gift boxes for children in War-stricken areas, and nut and candy cups for soldiers and their families in
local hospitals. Also, at these meetings, reports are made by the different schools on their activities. Rep-
resentatives proudly display quilts, puzzle books, joke books, vases, and ash trays Which they have
made for the soldiers in their classrooms. These representatives take back to their school the informa-
tion they receive and pass it on in a smaller school council at which there are representatives from each
home-room. ln this Way lunior Red Cross Work is spread throughout our county.
ln our school the Red Cross Work is done through the Student Council. 'Each representative takes
to his advisory the plans and collects the money for the Red Cross Membership Drive and War Relief
The Red Cross Magazine, which is made available by the Membership Drive money, is most in-
teresting. This magazine tells of the Work in schools all over the World. Students find much interest in
reading this timely magazine. Articles on conservation make students Want to help in their small Way.
The activities for the year in our school have been the Red Cross Membership Drive in November,
the War Relief Fund Drive in lanuary in which Brackenridge students gave generously, and the mak-
ing of afghans and other articles by many advisories in the spring. -loyce Vance.
Preparing for Civilian Defense makes
it necessary for B. H. S. sponsors to

Colleen isn't really hurt, it's just
more practice in tying bandages.

7fze s. 0. s. 0. cw Although one of the youngest organizations in Brackenridge, the Society of Student Opinion is by
no means the least active one. The fact that the name of the club or the more frequently used
"S.O.S.O." has appeared in local newspapers more than thirty times, may be taken as proof of that.
After having been founded on the remains of the "Digit Diggers," the S.O.S.O. began a successful
year by acquainting the student body with its purpose. A cake sale helped to provide the cash prizes
for a contest in which questions were secured for the first great survey of student opinion. The results
of this survey served to "keep B.H.S. informed about B.l-l.S. opinion," one of the clubs purposes.
After having been the guests of Miss Morgan at a very nice Christmas party, the members of the
S.O.S.O. successfully arranged the first dance of the l942 season. The dance was unique, because
students from all the high schools of the city were asked to attend. This was followed by a picture-
taking tour and picnic combination at Brackenridge Park.
The major events of the S.O.S.O.'s activity calendar were concluded by an immensely successful
"old license-plate collection contest," which served the three-fold purpose of conserving metal for the
nation's war-effort, providing money for a charitable organization, and making the two winning advi-
sories happy with their awards. -Herbert Iohn Spiro.
