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.

The other half. Could Alphonse be hungry? At work in the dark room. 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.

We work out a difficult problem with slide rule and scale - who knows, one of us may be an Edison. What are we doing here? We're posing tor a picture. What is that piece of machinery in the center? Well, we are as curious as you- ! we don't know either. The Science Club was organized in 1926 tor all Brackenridge High School boys interested in science. The purpose ot the club being to increase the interest in science among the students of Brack- enridge. The Science Club has been reorganized a number ot times. During the past year, Wendell Phillips and Volney Ellis, with the assistance ot the Executive Board did some excellent work in reorganizing the club and forming a new constitution. This newly formed constitution and the programs are so ar- ranged as to take care of both the scientific and social activities ot our club. Various programs of interest have been presented to young scientists throughout the entire year. One ot the most enjoyable meetings ot the year was the one at which Richard Smith presented a movie of views in South America. Not only has the Science Club been active in science, but it has sponsored several social attairs. The annual picnic along with several parties were some ot the outstanding gatherings of the year. The Ep-Chep Dance, early in the spring, was the climax of a full, well-rounded year. -Alton Grimm and Logan Smiley. ms' cw f Page 106
