A FEW APPRECIATIONS.
"NVhat is so rare as an editorial of la
Year Book without its appreciations?
We agree entirely with Mr. Bryant, or
was it 'Tennyson who wrote those immortal
lines? Anyway we are entirely in accord-
ance with the author's sentiments, and we
would feel very ungrateful, to say the least,
if we did not express our appreciation of
the co-operation we have had in putting
out this book.
We appreciate Mr. Raker's efforts in our
behalf. Without his support we would
have never started a book, and without his
valuable advice we would never have made
this book a success. Mr. Baker, we thank
Then, we appreciate the co-operation of
the Senior class, in getting in their pictures
and material on such short notice, and in
floating this book. Seniors, we thank you.
Nile also appreciate the efforts of the
faculty in our behalf, and wish to assure
them that we deplore nearly all the trials
and tribulations we have caused them. We
thank you, faculty.
Then if perchance we have missed any-
one we wish to thank the entire school both
individually and collectively for any con-
scious or unconscious efforts they have
made in our behalf. We thank you.
During our four years of English, we
have tried our hand at about every line of
literary composition, excepting one. We
have never entered into the realms of the
fairy tale. If we had, it would probably
have run like this:
"Once upon a time, to be more exact,
one fifth period Ka dignified Senior exited
from Room 10 and walked slowly down the
stairs in the general direction of the lunch
room. It was lunch period. but he was in
no hurry. Forty minutes was plenty time
for him to eat his lunch in, though of course
the Freshmen needed their extra five min-
utes. On reaching the well lighted, white
B. H. S. YEAR BOOK
tiled lunch room, he gazed around for his
personal chums. He found three of them
sitting at one of the porcelain covered
tables at the other end of the room, and
hurried to secure the one vacant chair at
their table. After a brief exchange of
formalities he picked up the menu. 'Good
nightl' he exclaimed, in hurt surprise.
'They are serving lamb chops again. Why
we had them only two months ago. It
seems to me they could vary their dishes a
little. Why look here, there is baked shad
today and we had that three weeks ago.
't0h, what's the use? The students of
Bradford High will probably continue, un-
til the end of time, to tortu1'e their gastro-
nomic organs with a daily twenty minute
period of orgy on the same old ham sand-
wiches and 'macaroni and cheese' "
Vile are about to utter a heresy that will
probably brand us as rcnegades among our
fellow-students: 'Twill amaze the Juniors,
shock the Sophomores and even stir up the
depths of the lowly Freshman. Prepare to
hear the worst, ye fellow-students! We
have a dire confession. VVe hate to leave
school. Thru the four years that we have
spent, profitably we hope, in Bradford
High, we have put in the greatest part of
our time in condemning the school system,
raking the facility over the coals, collec-
tively and individually, raving about the
lunch room and food in general, knocking
the Athletic Associations, and venting our
spleen upon the cruel fate that hound us
to this den of torture. Oh, yes, we were
just like the rest of the high school mem-
bers. To us this was the worst school in
existence, but still we always got peeved,
for some reason, if anybody else said so.
Now that we are within striking distance
of the exit, we pause in remorse. Now that
we are about to pass thru the portals of
B. H. S. perhaps forever, we pause to think.
The four years in High School have been
the best in our life. The associations we
have formed and the learned atmosphere
that we were supposed to absorb, are hard
to leave. We realize, that could we have
had the same point of view on entering
school as We have now on leaving, our
school life would have been a lot different.
But what's the difference, we have yet to
see a pupil who confessed to liking school,
while he was in it.

Friends and Fellow Classmates:
The class of 1919 extends to you a most
We stand before you tonight as victors.
We have satisfactorily mastered the trials
and hardships of a four year preparatory
course and we take great pleasure in look-
ing back over the happy days we toiled in
Our training has been under tl1e direct
supervision of competent teachers and the
impression we have left with them is one
of our dearest possessions.
You can not help feeling sad at the
thoughts of such a class moving from your
midst, but we feel we owe the world some-
thing and it is our duty to pay it.
Anrbition being the keynote to success,
we are confident the class of '19 will never
be forgotten. Some intend to seek further
education in college and some are prepar-
ing to enter the activities of life, armed
with the efficient knowledge they have al-
ready acquired. We have looked after the
affairs of the under classmen with the sym-
pathizing care of fathers. We have satis-
fied their wants and set a high standard of
ideals for them to follow.
The world of today is passing thru a
transitional period. No power of estima-
tion can foretell just where it will stop.
Une thing is certain, and that is that the
class of nineteen hundred a11d nineteen Will
weather the storm and instead of being the
students of yesterday will be the citizens
of tomorrow. .
4410211116 is no plant that grows o11 mortal
soil, nor in the glistering foil set oft' to the
earth, nor in broad rumor lies." We have
reached the zenith of our success in this in-
stitution, and we take our leave with the
best wishes for your success in the future.
0112155 Qiztnrg 'IH
Four long years ago the Class of '19 en-
tered this .liigh School. We were all very
proud a.t being here and thought we would
attract no little attention but to our amaze-
ment no 0110 noticed us at all. NVe felt very
important but before the first week was
over many longed for the quiet of the
grades. Bells buzzed all over at the most
unexpected momentsg the rooms had a fac-
ulty of changing floors when we tried to
find our classes. 'Phe only things we were
perfectly sure of were the laughs and jeers
that greeted us from all sides.
After the first week we became more
sure of ourselves. George Valsing boldly
accosted Joe VVilson, "YVhat do you do the
first thing in the morning?" only to re-
ceive thc crushing answer, " l-Breakfast,
We became n1ucl1 interested in our les-
sons and soon learned to laugh at all Miss
llavis' jokes. 'WVhy? I don't know. The
book says so.
VVe became real enthusiastic electing the
following class officers in Room 2: Dick
Jones. Presidentg Genevieve Douglas, Nice
President, and Raymond Brennan, Secre-
taryg in Room 18 Harold Usborne, Presi-
dentg Louise Melflarland, Vice President,
and George Valsing, Secretary. VVe had
a joint meeting selecting class colors. 'l'he
next day we appeared on the scene gayly
decorated but the upper classmen did not
approve of our colors or it may have been
they didn't like them on us, at any rate we
had to remove them much to our sorrow.
We entered upon our career as Sopho-
mores with much zeal. VVe spent the first
weeks trying to Hput it over" on the fresh-
ies but Miss Kervin soon quieted us down.
We all remember how pluckily Gertrude
flarmody stuck to Caesar thru all his cam-
paigns altho some of her neighbors fol-
lowed in their horse drawn chariots. Ruth
Moore was preeminent in demonstrating
'fa straight line is the shortest distance be-
tween two pointsf'
This is the year when the present divi-
Twenty-Two B. H. S- YEAR BOOK
sion of the Commercial Seniors entered
school. It came in 75 strong and while it
had no organization, due to objections on
the part of the principal, it did exercise a
leavening and dignified influence on the
It was during this year the Gym was
completed. This was especially interest-
ing to most of us as we had watched its
most minute construction. There had been
in our English class to Miss Kervin's great
disgust, a division of interest between it
and 'tliancelet and Elaine."
But the great moment in our lives came
when the Seniors went to VVashington. Our
boys fought gallantly, keeping the Junior
pennant from being put on the Senior train
and they were not unrewarded in their ef-
forts. Cur room, number 17, was gener-
ously filled with asfetida by the Juniors.
Another year slipped away and we were
the proud and haughty Juniors. The liter-
ary division organized immediately elect-
ing the following officers: President, Dick
Jones, Vice President, Carl Oliver, Secre-
tary, John Hunt, Treasurer, Julia Smith.
This year we were much augmented in
numbers by the Junior Commercials. They
maintained their own class organization as
follows: President, Glenn Mack, Vice Presi-
dent, VVilliam Riley, Secretary, George
Porter, Treasurer, Robert Purtle.
Early in the year we selected our class
pins which are as you know above criticism.
Shortly after they came I was met on the
street by a Senior. After gazing at the pin
a few minutes in silent admiration she con-
descended to say "VVhy, it's real cute."
Her loyalty to her class prevented her from
expressing her approval in stronger terms.
At the end of a successful football year
the team was given a banquet by the united
class of '19. It was prepared and served
under the direction of Miss Colcord. The
boys told us we would not have a hard time
finding some one willing to eat our cooking
Helen Currie and George McKinney
starred in Cicero altho Clermont Snyder
was nearly equal to them. VVhen Miss
Harper asked him "why did Cataline and
his followers kill their parents?" he replied
"So they could do as they pleased."
It was during our Junior year that Mr.
Richer taxed the students in room 5 for
every stick of gum chewed. After the tax
was paid each had the privilege of chew-
ing it the rest of the period. In this way
the class made several donations to the Red
Before the close of the year Mr. Mc-
Dowell left to take up a position with the
American Book Company. His departure
was marked by sincere regret.
Mr. Musselmen took his place. To him
and the rest of the faculty who have guided
us thru the mysterious paths of learning,
we owe-and give-our gratitude-even
tho their methods of education have proved
somewhat strenuous. At least Robart Pur-
tle and Guy Hughey seem to think so. They
were well known as Mr. McDowell's proba-
tion students in shorthand. Bob often at-
tained a speed averaging as much as 120
words a minute.
It is also a well known fact that Sam
Roseniield developed a mysterious case of
stiff neck every time he was called upon
to read his composition in English. How-
ever, his condition did not alarm us as he
always experienced a speedy recove1'y.
Towards the close of the school year the
class made great preparations for the
Prom--the 1ong looked forward to Prom.
The different eonnnittees held numerous
meetings and earnestly discussed how to
make the best impression on the dignified
Seniors. Sarah Clark hotly argued we
should have ice cream instead of punch be-
cause all children like ice cream and then
too, punch so expensive. Those who
know Soddy know she always gets her way
if she talks long enough.
But Hall good things come to him who
waits." At last we are Seniors. The sol-
emn sanctuaries, rooms 10 and 4, became
our homes for the last year, there we rest-
ed our weary work-worn brains in the peace
and quiet. Everywhere it is particularly
quiet at dismisal time. Ask Don Purdy
Cn account of the "flu" school started
15 minutes earlier than usual. This fact
has been a source of great irration to John
Kent as his alarm clock often fails to go
off. You all know the result-Mr. Mussel-
man's thirty minute scheme.
At the beginning ofthe year the Commer-
cials selected their officers and approved a
class pin but before Christmas the Commer-
cial and Literary classes of '19 united. The
election of officers resulted as follows: Clar-
ence Ludwig, President, Gertrude Carmody
and Ernestine Hadsell, Vice Presidents,
B. H. S. TWenfj,y.'I-'hree
and Tressa Fergason, Secretary. VVe
planned to take the NVashington trip
but Mr. Baker gently informed us Wash-
ington did not want to see us. l'm
sure Washington did not realize the
extent of its loss in not seeing the
most brilliant class ever graduating from
B. H. S. As there was to be no VVashing-
ton trip we could have no bazaar but we
had several Senior dances which we all
thoroughly enjoyed. The G. L. S. gave a
play for the benefit of the Seniors which
was decidedly clever. This with tl1e dances
partially made up for the loss of tl1e bazaar.
We seldom realize how attached we are
to people or to places until We have to leave
them. XVe forget all their little short com-
ings and remember only the admirable
qualities that make them so dear to us.
Many of our former members have left us
-some by choice, some on account of
health. In the last weeks one of our chums,
Audrey Whipple, was compelled by reason
of serious illness to withdraw. The Com-
mercials bade her "good-bye" sadly be-
cause she had ever been a happy delightful
companion. Our fondest faith in her rapid
recovery go out to her.
So when we leave this dear old school
we cling fondly to every recollection of
past pleasures and all else is forgotten for-
ever. XVe feel a newer and a truer love for
our Alma Mater and long to show our ap-
preciation. We tmst it will not take the
students long to realize what B. Il. S. has
done for them and remember to ever let
"red and black" stand in their hearts next
to "red, white and blue."

They say that every Senior class
Must have its line of verse
About their past adventures,
Before they all disperse.
But first of all I'll say a word
About our teachers true,
Say! won't life be empty-
Whcn they cannot yell at you?
Hi' course in most our lessons
We stalled you must admit.
Now "grinders" donit put on this shoe!
It may pinch-and will not fit!

This assembly hall so dear.
How many times dear classmates
We've fallen asleep in here!
When Mr. Haker-raked our gang,
And tore to threads our Rep!
Gee! I never will forget-
And he said we had no Pep!
Then some one bought a Senior Hag
And yelled, "Our class, all hail!"
I sure thought Bugger Brennan
Vifould sleep that night in jail!
Funny how a teacher tells us
What we'll do and what we won't.
They mark our cards up with red ink,
'Cause we talk and 'cause we don't.
Martin XVard and Dicky Jones-
Uh yes, Paul Bogart too--
Une day got the spirit-
l mean, spirit of red, white and blue.
One Sll1llH1G1',S day they marched away,
And tear drops lilled the streets,
But do not moan-they did come home,
For the poor lads had fiat feet.
Marjorie Willis so they say,
Goes a courtin' every day!
To the teachers all she gives a line,
And she gets grand marks at examina-
Some of our names attain great fame,
Although others may sound betta,
But if anyone can beat this pun,
If Johnnie Kent-Con-get-a?
They say that little children
Should be seen but never heard.

He sure would be a "bird!"

For he keeps the hours of an owl
And sleeps thruout the day!
If Theda Bara only knew
The rival she does possess
In friend- ' ' Helena Arthurs ' '- -
Her life would be a mess!

That's where Helen C'urrie roves
I've heard that her latest conquest
Is Master Carl T. Groves!

QBy E. Morrisj
I felt strongly impelled by something, I
knew not what, to walk in a direction en-
tirely strange to me. I had been walking,
it seelned for hours, yet as I went down
that narrow crooked path at dusk, I didntt
feel as tired as I should have. In fact I
felt a certain lightness that was quite
strange to me. I had been humming a little
tune but suddenly I broke off as I heard
a heavy crash of thunder and in the still-
ness that followed, 'a peculiar deep sound
coming from quite near me. The sound be-
came the drone of wierd voices and soon I
could even detect the words which ended:
"And thrice again to make up nine,
Peace! the char1n's wound up."
I thought I heard a faint rustle as of
wind rocking the trees and suddenly there
appeared out of nowhere such a queer
withered looking creature, that I was half
frightened. Yet there was something
strangely familiar about her appearance.
She greeted me in an unearthly voice. I
wondered where the others were for I was
sure I had heard three voices. However,
she was alone and at her bidding I invol-
untarily closed my eyes and when I opened
them again and looked about me, lo! there
was I sitting sidewise behind the creature
on a broomstick. Not a word did she say.
She even placed a choppy finger upon her
skinny lips to warn me that I too must be
silent. She pointed downward. I looked
and there so near to me. and yet so far
away, lay a beautiful wonder city.
Such a city I had never seen before. And
the mayor of that city was Reva Dana.
IIow did I know? Why, I was under a
charm and I just knew it because I did.
Madam Mayor and her assistant, Julia
Hart, were enjoying a box at Warlier
Tlieatre, fowned by Merritt and his Wife,
Vvlllllil, hy the wayi listening to sweet
voices of the famous twins with a long
French name. They were really Irene Lar-
rahee and Fllizabeth Smith. The two in the
box seemed to enjoy the music. No won-
der, the orchestra yvas the "Snyder Sym-
phony." During an interlude they looked
about them. In the box opposite they
caught sight of U. S. Senator Jones and his
wife, Eileen and Honorable Judge G. Xal-
sing, of the Supreme Court with his wife,
Fay I had hardly glimpsed Fay who was
hiding behind Dick, when Mistress Hecate
passed her hands before my eyes and when
I could see again I was staring at a big
poster placed in a prominent place-"G,
Carmody for Governor, Democrat." Far-
ther down the street was the sign for the
Republican candidate, A. Duggan.
Just then I heard a purring and an air-
ship whirred passed us, driven by Clarence
Ludwig, who carried a very important
document from President Robert VVoodard
to a conference of the League of Nations
at Geneva. Clarence was taking his wife,
Helene, with him I watched the plane as
it darted up and up but it c0uldn't quite
reach the wagon of Marjory, who had
hitched it to Mars. While my eyes were
still in the heavens I looked for the inoou
and there sat Paul Bogart and Sarah Clark,
eating something-green cheese I suppose.
Again the dust from the witch's hands
and this time, I was looking into a big news-
paper office Leon Joseph was editor in
chief. Raymond Brennan, sport editor and
Ruth Moore and Bertha Cohen had charge
of the society column But Leon was wor-
ried. Clarence Scott had a few years bc-
fore started a paper in opposition and just
now it was a pretty close race. Beulah Gib-
son and Pauline Braymer had just brought
in the society news. Carl Groves was just
linishing a big advertisement, "John Kent,
architect," with all proper designs. Later I
looked to see Sigrid Johnson and Alice
Sortore, who were busy with personals.
Here is a sample: "Rev, Donald Purdy,
with his wife Helen, entertained his little
Sunday School class at his home on Purdy
"Martin Ward, a curb broker from New
York is spending the week at the home of
his fiancee, Julia Smith."
We left the news office. Our next stop
was at the Juvenile Court, where Jennie
Clark sat as judge. Probation Officer,
Bertha Maloney, had just brought in Purdy
children for some slight misdemeanor. The
judge looked down over her glasses, saw a
Forty-Four B. H. S-
little chap with dancing blue eyes and red
hair, with cheeks to match and quickly dis-
missed the case, without further words.
Then she turned to Officer Doyle who had
a report to make.
VVhile they talked we slipped away. The
next thing that met my eyes was a big elec-
tric sign "Conjetta Balboa, Dancer."
There was a crowd before the theatre. I
caught sight of Ronald Brunner, a. speedy
business man in Wonder City. His wife,
llorthea was with him. Ethel Proper was
there with Elmer Kelly, a college coach.
There was a rumor about them ---.
VVhen we came to the residential section
of Vlfonder City I peeked through a lighted
window. Mrs. Sophia R. Smith was enter-
taining with a bridge party. Among the
guests were Imogene Stoutenburg, Frances
Thomas and Dorothy Meade. Mm! Doro-
thy used to be a good Methodist. At last
we passed into the suburbs. The biggest
girl 's college in America was situated in a
su hurb of VVonder City. Eradel Wali'ath
was the dean. Near the college was a
scientilic farm, run by Philip Holly. I
looked at the big sign "Holly Farm," over
the gate. Suddenly it began to fade. There
was a queer feeling in my head and there
I was standing where I had first seen the
witch, staring at nothing at all!

Qlnmmrrrial Hrnpherg nf 1915! Ullman
CBy Alice Spinneyj
One wonderful night in the month of
May, I lay in the porch swing watching the
full moon and wondering if it were possible
that it is an inhabited world similar to our
own. Still musing, I fell asleep, and Mr.
Dream Man obligingly allowed me a short
time in this world of mystery.
He carried me ten years into the future,
showing me myself at that time as an aviat-
ress, preparing for a tiight to the moon. I
found no one willing to attempt the peril-
ous trip with me on this day, so I decided
to go alone.
I soared high above the clouds until tin-
ally the moon took on a shape that recalled
to my mind the pictures in my old flom-
mercial Geography. I was now above the
moon, and could look down upon the most
beautiful valley I had ever seen.
After wondering what sort of people in-
habited tl1is land and what kind ofa recep-
tion would be mine, I landed in a small
grassy meadow. Stepping out of the ma-
chine, I was surprised to see la white man
coming toward me, and as he drew nearer
I could hardly believe my own eyes, for
there was my old school friend, Bill Riley.
His surprise equalled mine. But when I
inquired how he came to be living in this
strange land his surprise was still greater.
"'Where had I been these ten years? Did
I not know that Mary and Archie Haven
had discovered the 'Valley of the Moon' on
their own honey-moon?"
Bill gave me a very cordial invitation to
go to his home and meet his wife. As we
drove along in Bill 's seven passenger
"Mussleman," I could not help remarking
about the artistically designed houses
which seemed to be made of a sort of
jewelled stone. Bill explained that it was
a stone discovered by Roland VVillia1ns a
few years since, and that Roland was bc-
coming a multi-millionaire from the pro-
ceeds of his discovery.
On arriving at Billis large estate, I had
another surprise when he introduced me to
his wife, formerly Marjorie Loucks. Ten
years must have changed Bill's taste won-
derfully for we all know how he used to
prefer the very, very dark brunetts.
After dinner we attended the theatre to
see the most thrilling play of the day, "The
Villian's Choice." It was surely exciting,
but it was not until the end of tl1e third
act, when the heroine yelled in frightful
terror, that I discovered she was Edna
Eliason, and the two society belles aiding
her to escape from the villian, Raymond
Freeman, were Cecile Smith and Lillian
The next morning about one o'clock I
was suddenly awakened by two shots, and
upon arising I found the whole household
excited over a burglar who had stolen Mar-
jorie's pet cat. There was no more sleep
for us that night, and early in the morning
a noted detective arrived to begin work on
the case. I had had so many surprises that
I took it calmly when Myer Bergman walk-
ed in with an air of 'tsome one who knows
he can do something." And he surely did
accomplish something for by the next night
Lester Melnick was safely behind the bars
awaiting trial for kidnapping.
The day following I heard that my dear
friend Ernestine Hadsell lived a little way
out in the country so I decided right away
that I should see her. Her surprise at see-
ing me cannot be described. About the
first thing she did was to escort me around
her combined "orange grove and ostrich
farm,'l on which she employed men only.
At that time there were about three hun-
dred in her employ. Well, this didn't sur-
prise me much as Ernestine always did be-
lieve in having a good supply.
IVe settled down for a long talk and she
told me of some of our old classmates. It
seems Marion Meade, Audrey VVhipple and
Helen Cowan were touring the country lec-
turing f or the "Anti-Tobacco League."
They were also great politicians in the new
world and were intending to organize a new
political party and secure June Neil 's nom-
ination for governor of their particular
Estelle Barnes, Emogene Robinson and
Maude Pratt, all disappointed in love, had
Fortyqsix B. H. S.
gone into the wiids to be missionaries and
teach the natives the correct way to live,
beginning with "Women.'s Rights" of
course. Howard Double was superintend-
ent of the largest railroad corporation in
the country and had succeeded in getting
Mayfred to help him solve his hard prob-
lems of life. Grace McD'aniels, now Mrs.
Smith, was a famous artist and Ruth Russ
was writing stories for the "By Jove"
magazine published by Hughie 8z Co., and
Bert Williams was president of the First
National Bank. VVould surprises ever
That afternoon Ernestine and I started
out to locate some more of our old class-
mates. As we walked down the street, I
noticed two girls excitedly conversing, and
one of them looked strangely familiar, but
I never would have recognized her if she
hadn't laughed. But no one could mistake
Irene F Tolligan 's laugh. Perhaps you think
she was happy because she laughed but she
wasn't. She asked us to accompany her
to the lawyer's as she intended suing Sam
for divorce on "fair" grounds. In a few
minutes we stopped in front of a queer
looking building with the letters over the
door-HD. D. Dick, 'Attorney-at-Law."
Well, well, Donald a lawyer? I thought
then how perfectly true is the saying that
"good things come done up in small pack-
ages." Donald didn't happen to be in but
there sat his stenographer, Julia Piseitelli,
typewriting at about eighty-five words a
minute and keeping perfect time with her
She told us that the ofiice next door was
occupied by Ro-bert Purtle who was the
best court stenographer in the "Valley of
the Moon." He could take dictation best
when the witness, the defendant and judge
all spoke at one time.
As our time was short we didn't wait to
see Donald but went on to visit the Chil-
dren 's Home. My first thought as I entered
the home was of Mary Cary and the York-
burg Orphan Asylum, and just as I was
preparing to encounter Miss Bray I heard
Tressa I+'erguson's voice harranguing the
children. I immediately asked about Dr.
Budd but it didn't happen to be a Dr. Rudd
this time but a Dr. Benton. Tressa con-
ducted us to the school room and there very
sedately sat Alice Leipold trying to impress
upon the children 's minds that "if they
could solve two problems in partial pay-
ments they could solve a thousand."
Now I began to wonder what had become
of my very dear friend, Vema Guthrie, and
was just about to inquire when I noticed
a sign with the large letters "Wilson's
Greenhouse," so I knew I should soon see
After leaving Vema's home we stopped
for a few minutes to listen to the inspiring
music of the citizen's band and I soon dis-
covered why it was so good-there was
Frank Petranton leading.
By the time I arrived at Ernestine's
again, I had fully decided, at her request,
to make my future home with her to help
her manage her-"ostrich farm," after

The old classmates gave me a joyful send
oif when I was ready to depart.
Everything went splendidly until some-
thing happened suddenly, which caused me
to lose control of my machine and I felt
myself falling through the air My machine
fell the fifty feet to the ground with a. crash
and then-I awoke to find myself lying on
the porch floor and wishing I had stayed to

We, the undersigned, hereby put our sig-
nature to this, this fifteenth day of June,
1By Ernestine I-Iadse11.J
The class of 1919 have chosen me to
voice their farewell for them. This fare-
well is not a sad one, it merely means good-
bye to the High School days and wishes
that each of you may, indeed fare well.
To you, members of our faculty: How
can we best voice our farewell to you-you,
whose patience we have often tried and
whose plans we have often ruined by our
heedlessness? We thank you for the sacri-
fices you have made for us and for the pow-
erful influences you have had upon us dur-
ing our time in High School. We trust
that we may be able to extend greater in-
fluences, because of having been under
your guidance. To you, farewell.
To you, Under-graduates: We leave our
High School in your care. Because you
are to have the same sort of experiences
we have had here, we are interested in you.
VVe rejoice that we can leave our school, in
such loyal, capable hands as yours. After
delivering to you, this great trust, to you
we must also say farewell.
Classmates: To us this is a great mo-
ment, there are two forces ruling our
mindsg one memory, the other hope. What-
ever memories we may retain throughout
our lives, no other memories will come
back more forcefully or more pleasantly
than the memories of the happy days we
have spent here together. We have en-
joyed this time of preparation for our work
and it seems almost impossible that we are
at the time of parting.
We hope for a future of sunshine as well
as one of duties well performed. With
such hopes for the future and pleasant
memories of our past High School days,
we, the class of 1919, say our last farewell.

banquet, held in the lligh School. The
banquet hall, the third floor camontlaged,
was attractively decorated in the school
colors. Places were set for twenty-tive,

gym. where music and dancing were en-
joyed for tl1e remainder of the evening.
The girls of the High School were repre-
sented in basketball this year under tl1e
leadership of Grace Mortland as captain
and lflileen Moffett as manager.
Inasmuch as it was late in tl1e season it
was planned to play not more than four
games in which the girls gave a good ac-
count of themselves by winning three and
' J ohnsonburg.
The first game was played on Feb. 13, at
home, with the fast Johnsonburg team
whose reputation was of very high stand-
ing. Before the game our girls entertained
the visiting team with a dinner at which
the following menu was served:
Cream of Tomato Soup
Mashed Potatoes Gravy Meat Loaf
Creamed Peas Hot Rolls
Gelatin with Whipped Cream
Johnsonburg was extremely fortunate in
possessing Decker whose brilliant playing
procured every point for them. The game
for Bradford was well played by the entire
team, no particular starring being notice-
able. At the end of the game the score
stood 14-13 favor of Johnsonburg.
Scorers were: Decker, 3 field goals, 8
Bradford scorers were: Cotton, 3 field
goals, Mortland, 2 field goals, McLean, 1
field goal, 1 foul goal.
Timer: Rake 1'.
On February 21 the girls met Flldred H.
S. in a slow game from the standpoint of
the spectators and the Eldred girls were
overwhelmingly defeated with the score
Capt. Grace Mortland scored for Brad-
ford by making Hve clean field goals, Mc-
Lean with two field and five foul goals,
Cotton with three field goals and Proper
one field goal.
For Plldred, Duryea starred with three
field and one foul goal, Odell, one field.
Referee: Ames. Timer: Raker.Scorcr:
Kane High School brought their fast
team to Bradford on March 8 and met de-
cisive defeat to the tune of 19-7. In this
game every sub available from our school
was given a chance to show their ability.
McLean ran the score up by making every
point, 6 field and 7 foul goals.
For Kane, Anderson showed up well by
2 field goals and by her exceptional ability
on floor work.
Dickson scored 1 field goal, Stewart one
foul goal for Kane.
Referee: Garrison. Timer: Raker.
Y. W. C. L.
The last game of the season was played
with the Y. VV. C. L. This game was a con-
tinuation of' old existing rivalry between
the two institutions. The H. S. girls de-
feated the league girls with the score 23-18.
Bradford scorers were: McLean, 8 field,
12 fouls, Steiss, 1 field, Dennis, 1 field.
Y. W. C. L.: Johnston, 6 field, Arm-
strong, 1 field, 2 foul, Wiles, 1 field.

The Varsity captain, Grace Mortland,
must be praised here for her splendid show-
ing all through the year in helping a good
thing tour teamj along. Flora McLean,
who scored so many baskets for the team
Will not be forgotten and the High School
will be very sorry to lose her next year.
Helen Henline, the best guard who has
yet been found proved herself very efhcient
and able to cope even with Decker.
The members of the Varsity team and
the High School in general Wish to thank
and congratulate those members of the
girls' second team who were so faithful as
to come out night after night for practice
and as is very often the case receive very
little credit. The second team has made
possible an efficient first team and a large
part of the credit is due to the second teams
untiring efforts. And, lastly, every mem-
ber on both teams thank Mr. Garrison for
being so willing and eager to help train the
girls that they might make as favorable a
showing as they did in their first season of
playing outside teams.
Some of the old-time spirit of the school
was revived by the girls' interclass basket-
ball games which were started on Jan. 20.
The teams started out under the following
Senior Class-Eileen Moffett.
Junior Class-Grace Mortland.
Sophomore Class-Flora McLean.
Freshmen Class-Victorine Oliver.
The games ended on March 26 with the
result that the Juniors and Sophs were
tied for first place, each having won tive
games and lost one. The tie was played
off by a series of two out of three games in
which the Sophs won out giving them a
total of seven games Won and two lost. The
foll-owing girls are on the Sophomore team
and have had their names engraved upon
the shield which is in the gym:
Flora McLean-Captain, Center.
Hazel Shelgren-Right forward.
Francis Behan-Left forward.
Theodora Weimer-Riglit guard.
Helen Henline-Left guard.
LaMar Keltz-Left forward.
A girls' athletic association was started
in March and the following officers were
Eileen Moffett-Vice President.
Prof. Raker, Miss Thompson, Miss Lock-
The association was started so late that
very little business was carried on through
it this year. A tennis tournament is being
started and a medal and silver trophy will
be awarded the winner.
Varsity Track Team.
On May 13th the track team journeyed
to Alfred University, Alfred, N. Y., where
it took part in the Interscholastic track
meet held there on May 14th.
Bradford acquitted itself in its usual
style, scoring 12 1-2 points.
The team took third place in the cross
country, scoring one point.
. iVillis took third in the high jump, jump-
ing at 5 feet 2 inches, scoring one point.
Jones and a man from Springville tied
for third place in pole vault at 9 feet 8
inches, Jones getting one-half point. Brown
took first place in tl1e 4-10 yard dash with
a time of 60 1-5 seconds, scoring five points.
'Purdy took first place in 220 yard dash
with a. time of 25 1-5 seconds, scoring tive
The men who made the trip were as fol-
lows: Coach Garrison, Capt. Purdy, Mgr.
Jones, Bogart, Burt, Wilcox, Brown, VVillis,
Holley, Locke, Kelly and Wooclwarcl.
The following men won their track letter
at the meet: Brown, Willis and Purdy.
The Juniors and Seniors had a hard fight
over first place in number of points, the
race lasting all through the meet. The
Juniors won 'by one point. The Sophs
showed very poor spirit, not even trying in
the meet. The Freshmen tried, but could
not compete with the Junior and Senior

Fifty-Six B. H. S. YEAR BOOK
- By o. B. s. '19.
1 had been reading a book steadily for
two hours and growing tired of the con-
tinuous sea of black and white, restlcssly
threw the book aside and sat gazing idly at
a youngster who was amusing himself by
blowing soap bubbles from a clay pipe.
'llhey were very pretty, and as I watched
them float majestically on the breeze a new
interest was awakened in me and how long
I sat there enveloped in the rapture of my
thoughts I do not know.
I saw the fairy like spheres as they left
the pipe and started their journey thru
the airy expanse. Some floated gaily along
for a short distance and burst. Others
were hurried to and fro by the breeze only
to brush against a leaf and be no more.
While those which pleased me most, sur-
vived the tossing and jolting of the breezes
and were carried far, far beyond the range
of my poor vision into tl1e realm of eternity.
How aptly I thought of our class of "nine-
teen." How many, I wondered, would
graduate and like the bubble, continue on
life 's way gaily for a time only to fall com-
pletely at the first slight barrier. How
many others would endure many of life's
storms and then fail at the crucial moment
when about to be crowned with victory.
A-.gain I wondered how many would endure
lii'e's butfets, survive its storms and pass
on and on ever struggling, ever victorious
against the world until death claimed their
noble life, and it ceased to be. But as we
graduate, let us not think after this man-
ner. Rather, let us all strive against our
dilliculties and overcome them. Let us go
out into life 's way, with a spirit to conquer,
and may this spirit never cease to bear us
onward until the last dear companion drops
The Radio Man in the Navy
The radio man in the navy performed a
service to the country which forms one of
the most interesting and inspiring chap-
ters in the record of our recent national
acliievement. Tucked away in his little
eubby somewhere between decks in a tight-
ing ship or a transport, he was typical of
the contribution of radio science to the sum
total of our nation 's war power. That con-
tribution, apparently small and inconspicn-
ous compared to the number of men in
other branches of service was, in reality,
of great importance in terms of service
rendered. Safe conduct across the seas 0
the essentials of war, men munitions a V..
food depended to a great extent upon Q..
fective wireless communication.
Official records reveal instances of lfrcic
rescues made possible solely through L..
use of radio. Though darkened by details
B. H. S. YEAR BOOK Fifty-Seven
of Prussian frightfulness, the story of the
Lusitanials destruction records the fact
that S. O. S. signals saved seven hundred
and fifty-four persons from horrible death
by drowning. Reliable authorities are re-
sponsible for the statement made last
October: "VVithout the wireless outfit on
every large trans-Atlantic cargo ship, Ger-
many would long ago have starved out
Aware of these facts and realizing the
urgent need of radio operators in its enorm-
ous task of transporting an army across the
ocean, the government called for volun-
teers early in the war. This appeal met
with a gratifying and patriotic response
from both amateurs and professionals. In
addition numerous public and private
schools were established for training pur-
poses. Under government supervision,
special courses in radio instruction were
given in thirty-seven colleges in the United
States. During the summer of nineteen
eighteen, four thousand students at one
time were being trained for the navy at
Harvard in a course covering a period of
sixteen weeks. For entrance it was re-
quired that the student be able to receive
consecutive matter of mixed letters and
figures at the rate of ten words a minute,
and that he have a working knowledge of
radio telegraphy. Other schools were
maintained at the different navy yards and
training stations. For the period of the
war, emergency licenses were granted on
receiving tests alone, theory being omitted
The standards in the practical tests,
however, called for a high degree of
efficiency. Veteran commercial operators
who had "pounded brass on seven oceans"
were surprised at the lack of recognition
given them when they first entered the ser-
vice. They were naturally irritated having
to take the elementary course in physics
and telegraphy along with men who had
never seen a wireless outfit before. But a
greater surprise awaited them when they
tried the first navy tests. Aceustomed to
messages in plain English where the loss of
a word or two did not spoil the sense, they
realized the need of training when the in-
structor sent a medley of nonsensical
words, each one of which, translated by
the ship's officer, meant an important
order. All the commands were in code, con-
stantly changing and absolutely meaning-
less. Therefore if one word was missed,
the following word or words offered no
clue by which the operator might fill in the
message and so cover up his deficiency. It
dawned on the old-timers that their wire-
less game was no longer a game, but a tool.
Now they are more than willing to admit
that the "New navy has raised radio 0p61'-
ating standards a fair hundred per cent
and is still raising them."
After passing the tests the radio man
was usually assigned to a ship. His duties
depended upon the branch he had special-
ized in. The radio service was split into
various branches, each of which required
intensive training. A wireless shore sta-
tion, a battleship equipment, an airplane
set, a submarine signaling device, a wire-
less telephone, a direction finder or a listen-
ing station was offered him according to
the course chosen.
Perhaps the most useful, if not the most
thrilling branch was that of fleet operator.
Here the man who had finished his course
in the land school was assigned. not to the
duties of chief operator as he might natur-
ally expect, but to a rag and a can of paste
with which to polish the brass. After about
two weeks of brass polishing he was given
a chance to "rise" by being put in charge
of an instrument for a certain length of
time. If he received and reported all mes-
sages given out by the flagship during this
time, his position as permanent operator
was assured. But if the Hagship caught
him napping, and it did its utmost to catch
him, back he went to the rag and the pol-
ishing paste for another two weeks. In
view of the conditions under which he had
to work, this preliminary training was ab-
Although the duties of fleet operator
were not so thrilling nor spectacular as
some of the more conspicuous branches,
the element of danger was by no means
lacking. The highest type of bravery was
needed for this work. The safety of the
whole ship, during a critical time of peril,
often depended upon the nerve and skill of
the radio man. Since his most valuable
service was given under such difficulties,
the necessity for his intensive training be-
comes apparent. It is a significant fact
that there were several complete wireless
installations in different parts of the ship,
Fifty.Eighg B. H. S. YEAR BOOK
each with its operator, each independent
ofthe rest. This means that if a shell
smashed one operator and his equipment,
one of the other installations went into
In addition to the recognition of the
courage of these men who have rendered
such splendid service, many instances are
related of acts of personal bravery pel-
formed by them. The operator on the army
transport "Antilles," another victim of
Hun U-boats, preferred to go down with
his ship rather than save himself when
there were warning signals to be given.
But whether the radio man was called
upon to make the supreme sacrifice or not,
his willingness to do so if need be, and to
do his utmost to serve his country without
consideration of his own safety, makes a
record of which he may well be proud.

,Is the greenest thing there is!
In school they stop their foolishness
For minutes at a time,
And Hunk their recitations
With an ignorance sublime.
On the clock and on the teacher
They keep a watchful eye,
Chewing gum with jaws untlagging
As the hours go dragging by.
They debate on learned subjects
Of a philosophic kind, I
Such as, "Man's superiority,
In development of mind."
And while the horrid teacher,
In severe approval nods,
They are writing silly messages
And tln-owing paper wads.
It is strange, how, in a High School
Such a dilference seems to show
Twixt the Freshmen and the student
Who was one, a year ago.
The fellows who are Sophomores
Clive up their childish ways
And try to ape the dignity
They scorned in Freshmen days.
The Juniors and the Seniors
Take o11 such a serious mien
They sometimes make you quite forget
The fact that they were green.
For they boss tl1e verdant Freshmen
IVith a fatherly parade,
And order them as if they thought
That they would be obeyed.
But ask most any teacher
His or her opinion true
As to which is really freshest
From a teacher's point of view.
And they 'll say that, though a Freshman
Is an imp in human flesh,
He's not in it for a minute
VVith a Senior-when hets fresh.

Reddy cared most for l1is pi11to po11y wl1icl1
l1e called i't'arrot."
The date of tilt? race for this year was
set for the Fourth of July.
Rock Gulch was tl1e principal town in
this center. The populatio11 consisted of
t'a111ilies ot' sheep herders, cowboys, a11d
several traders. Tl1e principal buildings
were Il0t much more than squatty huts.
Une served as a postoflice and as till! home
ol' the postmaster a11d justice of peace. The
two offices being filled by one Illtlll. An-
other was the XVells Fargo Express ofliee
and railroad station.
The most iinportant building to the na-
tives was 0110 that served as a saloon Zlllll
About three P. M. on tl1e third of July
two men walked into tl1e saloon, both of
them were dressed in cowboy style. One
was short a11d tl1ick set. llc had a dark
mustache, bl11e eyes, and black hair. The
other man was tall and l1ad an athletic
figure and stern face.
The SlI0l'l. fellow walked to tl1e bar and
ordered two drinks. NVhile these were be-
ing mixed, tl1e two sat down at a tahle and
began to talk.
"Say, Shorty, are yo' gunna' enter tl1e
race tomorrow ?"
"Yep, I sure ani, my hoss can beat any
yo' can bring aroun'."
" lJun't know 'bout it. Mighty nice piece
of hoss flesh that Stinberg kid's got. Re-
ll1UUllJ0l' we saw l1i1n ridin' yistidy when
we 'us gatherin' them strays from across
Gulch Creek." .
The lllilll addressed as 'tShorty" became
silent, glowering at tl1e glass WlliCl1 had
lJ90Il placed before l1i111. Then witl1 a gulp
l1e swallowed tl1e contents. He drew a red
bandana liandkerchief from his pocket and
wiped l1is lips. When tl1e other had lin-
ished his glass, both arose and Walked out.
Un tl1e 11ext day tl1e people of Rock
Gulch assembled ea1'ly at the race course.
The races were to be l1eld at tell o'cloek.
Every thing was in readiness at half past
ni11e. The Il1l1'10I' races were l1eld first, sev-
eral Indians and cowboys displaying the
good qualities ot' tl1eir ho1'ses.
'When the ti111e finally 0211119 for tlltx big
race, tl1e contestants led their horses to tl1e
line and 1no1111ted. Five 111811 besides
Reddy were to take part i11 the race.
The boy stroked t'arrot's neck ilild whis-
pered to him. The horse nodded his head
as if llli understood.
Next in lllll' to ll-eddy was tl1e llltlll who
had been addressed as Shorty by his eo111-
panion in tl1e saloon tl1e day before. He
was IIlOl1lltt'd upo11 a large gray horse,
Tl1e revolver signaling tl1e start was
fired. Tl1e l1orses sprang over tl1e line and
lor a fourtli ot' the distance kept abreast.
'l'hen several began to lag bel1i11d.
Wlhen half the distance was past, Shorty
and Reddy were ill tl1e lead. Reddy had
tl1e advantage ol' being lighter tl1a11 Shorty
and Carrot was not straining l1i1nself as
ll1llCll as the gray. When Reddy spoke. l1is

Reddy 's heart began to thump as l1e felt
tl1e saddle slip. He quickly decided that
his only chance lay in jumping. Drawing
his feet from tl1e stirrups, l1e leaped to tl1e
ground. The speed at Whicli the horse was
going threw him from his feet and the fall
Carrot sped on and crossed the line,
closely followed by the gray. It seemed
that Shorty was the winner.
Feveral men carried Reddy to the place
where Mr. Stinberg stood among the on-
loolcei-s. Only a little water was needed
to bring the boy back to consciousness.
Upon examining the saddle it was found
that one of the buckles had been tampered
with in such a way that an extra strain
would loosen the whole saddle.
The judges were disputing among them-
selves as to the winner.
Suddenly a commotion was heard and a
man rushed through the crowd and came
to Mr. Stinberg. The latter recognized the
B. H. S. YEAR BOOK
newcomer as Hong Wong, the Chinese cook
at Mr. Stinberg's ranch.
Hong Vtfong told Mr. Stinberg that he
had seen a man early that morning go into
the corral at the ranch and fumble with
the saddle on Carrot. Reddy remembered
that he had forgotten to remove the saddle
from the horse.
This was sufficient for the judges to de-
cide as to the winner. One of the men
walked over to Reddy and handed him
something. It was the prize, the beautiful
saddle and silver spurs. Reddy was so full
ol' joy that he could only stammer a word
Keeping the Promise
fBy Pauline Hare.J
"Uh, if I had only told them where I was
going' or had pa. come with me, I know I
wouldn't have got lost but he told me not
to tell anyone and so of course I couldn't,
could I. Bruno?" At this the boy and dog
began trudging slowly along the steep
mountain path. The boy cast eager glances
he-re and there and then glancing down at
the paper tightly clasped in his hand.
In the heart of the Rocky Mountains
stood a little log cabin, which was occupied
by the mysterious Pedding family. Mr.
and Mrs. Bedding had moved here when
Brownie ttheir only childl was about one
At the time that this story takes place
'Brownie was a healthy, mischievous boy of
fourteen with dark brown hair and eyes
and stood about tive feet, two inches. Now
Brownie, as one might expect, was into
anything and everything from the tallest
tree to the highest rock. Nothing could
satisfy him unless he was up some place.
Ever since Brownie could remember he
had taken care of his fathcrls goats. One
day while tending the goats he saw a par-
ticular bird 's nest that he must have. This
nest was situated on a high cliff which was
level on the top. Leaving the goats in care
of his shepherd, Bruno, and slinging his
bow and arrow oer his shoulder he began
climbing from one rock to another each
time getting nearer his prize. The climb
was hard and tiresome but Brownie never
gave up anything that he started after.
Now the distance was less than thirty feet
but the nest began to take on a different
appearance, looking more and more like an
old straw hat that he used to have. At five
feet below Brownie knew that it was his
old hat but how it got there he didn't know.
U p over the cliff he went but what did he
"Me see you come at last," said a voice
from the bundle huddled up against the
side of the cliff.
Streching first one leg out 'and then the
other the bundle took on the appearance of
an old Indian with black matted hair and
glittering eyes. His clothes were in rags
and his feet were bare.
"Me been waiting for you six sun-
downs," said the Indian.
"F-f-for m-In-me," said Brownie fright-
ened so that he could hardly speak.
"Ugh!" answered the Indian, 'tMe,
gonna die at sundownf'
Motioning for Brownie to come close to
him the Indian held out a piece of paper to
'tNo tell anyone, find mine," at this the
Indian slowly traced his finger along the
lines on the paper and then pointed in the
direction of the north.
By now Brownie began to comprehend
what the Indian was trying to tell him.
'tllo you want me to go find this mine
without telling even pa or ma?" asked
B. H. S. YEAR BOOK Sixty-One
"Ughlno tella till you find it or me spirit "Nope, didn't see a one." responded
come take you to the far country. Promise,
promise." These were the last words ever
spoken by the Indian for the sun had gone
below the hills and the Indian's last breath
had been drawn as the last rays flickered
across the cliff but he had Brownie's
Brownie knew the Indian's words were
true but how could he go? He had never
been beyond their side of the mountain and
this map would take him way beyond that.
Looking down at the hideous heap on the
rock he decided to go for he had made a
promise and to Brownie a promise was
Leaving the Indian where he was for
there was no place to put him, he slowly
descended to t11e ground where he was wel-
comed eagerly 'by Bruno who had gathered
the goats together and had them waiting
patiently for Brownie to come down so
they might go home. Bruno saw something
was the matter with Brownie and decided
to watch him.
On the way home Brownie studied the
map for he knew at home he would have no
time and as he was going to go early next
morning he must know something of the
way. This did not please Bruno for Brownie
would always play with him while going
home so he fBrunoD began jumping and
barking around Brownie trying to attract
his attention in which he was finally suc-
cessful. Brownie, who was always so
cheerful at home knew th-at he had better
act as if he was happy. Tucking the paper
in top of his stocking he challenged Bruno
to race him to the goat inclosure.
At the door of the cabin Brownie was
met by his mother who had been waiting
"You, here at last, honey," asked the
little frail woman with the same color hair
and eyes as Brownie's.
"Yes," answered Brownie smiling brave-
ly for he knew this would be the last night
he would be at home for la long time. 'tPa
home yet?" this was spoken after he had
kissed his mother.
"He didn't go to work today, one of the
horses was lame."
"Been bothered by the wolves today,
son?" asked a deep, bass voice from the
"Supper ready," came from a little room
off the main part of the cabin.
When supper was over and dishes wash-
ed tBrownie helpingl father, mother and
Brownie came into main part and settled
down for a short hour of conversation for
when the clock struck eight everyone in
the Pedding family should be in bed and
Brownie, in the loft above, was awake
long after that time. Moving around sil-
ently in the dark he gathered together all
his clothes and tied them up in an old hand-
kerchief. VVhen the clock struck ten long
strokes Brownie was asleep.
At three o'clock next morning he was up
and down stairs. After eating breakfast,
he took two loaves of bread, some butter,
a piece of bacon, a bag of coffee and put
them in an old knapsack together with a
knife, box of matches and an old dish.
After a farewell look at his father and
mother he started off with bow and arrow,
clothes and provisions on his shoulder and
map in hand. Not alone did he go for sneak-
ing up behind came faithful old Bruno.
For many months Brownie and Bruno
tramped over mountains, mountains, moun-
tains always going towards the north. lie
had found the cross carved on the rock and
the pine tree wedged between two rocks
but now the way was more difficult and
tiresome. Before him constantly was the
picture of his father and mother before the
fireplace in the little log cabin, but he had
Bruno to comfort him for Bruno always
seemed to understand. Long before had
Brownie's provisions given out and he and
Bruno now lived on the animals killefl by
his bow and arrow or tl1e berries he could
find. Many times was he lost and for many
days he and Bruno would wander away
from the trail.
One day Bruno, who was ahead began
barking as if he saw something. Rounding
the bend Brownie saw before him an old
deserted cabin. Brownie looked at his map
and then at the cabin in surprise for on his
map down in one corner was a cabin which
he had never noticed before., Yes, it was
a cabin but drawn very indistinct.
'WVell, Bruno, looks like we found some-
thing anyway," said Brownie speaking
cheerfully, for the first 'time since he left
Sixny-Two B. H. S. YEAR BOOK
"Bow, wow," came from Bruno who was
running from the cabin door to Brownie
and back to the cabin.
"NVant to explore, Bruno?,'
'llhe wagging of Bruno's tail showed how
much he would like to.
The inside of the cabin was made up of
one large room with a few broken chairs
scattered around, an old table, minus a leg,
in the middle of the room, an old bed in
one corner and a large fireplace at one end.
This, then, was to be the future home of
Brownie and Bruno.
"lrVell, it's something," followed by a
long sigh from Brownie. "Suppose we
straighten up 'cause welre gonna sleep
here tonight, Brunof'
Early next morning they started out,

Brownie followed and
found a large opening in the rock. Noth-
ing could be seen of Bruno but a sound of
pat, pat on the rocks could be heard.
Finally Bruno returned with something
in his mouth.
"Bruno, where did you find this?',
Brownie held in his hand part of a once
As Brownie had brought no matches and
as it was getting late he could not explore
the mine that day so after carefully mark-
ing it, they returned towards the cabin,
happy that they had even such ia place to
That night Brownie took his knife and
going out to where some pine trees were,
he dug up some roots and taking them back
he hung them up over the fire so that they
would be dry by morning. These pine roots
he was going to use as torches to explore
Next day Brownie took his bow and ar-
row for they were going to stay all day and
of course would need something to eat.
Arriving at the cave Brownie lit one of his
torches and went in boldly. For a long
ways the cave was a narrow way, then at
the end of this the passage opened into a
large room. At first it seemed as if the
cave ended here but looking more careful
Brownie soon discovered a drop of about
five feet. First he stuck his torch down
into the hole to see if there was something
safe to land on and finding a roek fioor he
then put the torch between Bruno's teeth
and jumped in followed by Bruno. Along
this passage they went for about twenty
feet. 'llhen it turned off into a little room
hut showed no sign of gold. Brownie by
this time was becoming discouraged and it
seemed to him hours since he had been in
the place. From this small room one had
to crawl thru an opening in the wall. XVhen
Brownie stuck his head into the next part
what had he found but gold, the dull green-
ish yellow glitter came from all sides.
On the floor lay an old rusty pick with a
handle. This was just what Brownie need-
ed so picking it up he walked on gazing
with awe and wonder at the gold. Abrupt-
ly it all ended, the main part branching
into two passage ways. 'faking the one to
the right he walked on for a long time until
he came to another chamber of gold. From
here a long passage way extended for about
one hundred feet. At the end of it the sun-
light was streaming in and when Brownie
reached the opening he had not only found
a new way to the mine but also his cabin
just down below.
Allis difficulty was solved for he had been
wondering how l1e could carry the gold he
dug back thru the passage he had first come
Five years later we find Brownie still at
faithfully. Each night

as he goes to the cabin we hear him say:

The cabin has something of a home like
appearance now. lnside are new chairs, a
neat bed, a table with four legs and in the
corner a big chest. On the floor are two or
three wolf skins and in front of the tire-
place a large bear skin.
Brownie had planned to stay here six
years fkeeping track on his cabin doori and
was now waiting for the time when he
might go home.
At last the day dawned when the years
were up and Brownie, with one nugget of
gold, and Bruno started home. The way
was not difficult and each day brought
them nearer home.
It was dark when they arrived in sight
of the cabin, way passed eight o'clock so
Brownie quieted Bruno, who was trying to
show his delight at getting home again,
and stealthily approached the cabin. Open-

ing the door he tiptoed in. Finding' every-
thing so quiet he deeided not to wake his
father or mother so after kissing them
gently he went on out into the kitc-hen
where he found the table set for one with
just the things he used to like. He thought
this strange but did not hesitate to eat and
give Bruno his full share and then he erept
up the ladder to his loft where he found
everything ready for him as it used to be.
Nest morning Brownie was awakened by,
"Come, Brownie, it's time to get up."
Up he jumped and was down the ladder
in two seconds with a glad, "Ma, pa. I'm

"Yes," replied Brownie.
"XVhy, son tl1at's what I came here to

Then Mr. Pedding told of when he was
a little boy the map had been stolen by an
Indian from his father and that just before
his father's death he had promised that he
would find the mine.
"VVe'll go there at once," and so that is
how the Pedding family kept the promise.

The above program was carried out with
a snap and vi1n that spoke well for the ef-
ficient and tireless work of Physical Direc-
tor Garrison. This is but the first of the
gymnasium events. Mr. Garrison is plan-
ning the organization ofa crack gym team
and challenging the teams of other schools
to a series of' gym meets.
"The l'Till'1ll0l'9tllI9,H presented by the
G. II. S. on the evening of' May 8th was a
decided success. The cast represented an
interesting mixture of types, all of which
were convincingly played. The action of
the play transpires on a farm and the sit-
nations thus provoked all deal with farm
life and are very amusing. The plot in i't-
self is well sustained owing to the interest
aroused by the missing receipt for three
lumdred dollars, and the climax is not fore-
shadowed in any way, so it is a surprise
and a delight. llowever, it is the girls who
draw forth the most interest and itis chief-
ly around their different and respective
types that the fun centers.

makes the ru11down farm a success, quite
comes up to the expectations of the aud-
Iradell Walrath, the serious Eleanor, was
like a girl from real life who had stepped
on the stage and her perfect naturalness
made the part a success.
Reva Dana as the fun provoking "Graci-
ous" made a decided hit with her dialect
and the quaintness which the piece af-
Gertrude Carmody, the irate and threat-
ening Mrs. Beckwith, afforded much
amusement, and her interpretation of a
type which will always live in farm com-
munities was clever and diverting to the
Louise Thompson as the blase Minnette
was truly a striking contrast to her more
unsophisticated sisters. She certainly
made the most of her part and the lines
never lost a degree of meaning through her
rendition, which was excellent and very
amusing, making a universal hit.
Elizabeth Day as Jocelyn, the little girl
who longed for willow plumes, made quite
an appeal to the audience, while she made
the part sparkle with life by means of her
droll, very human little speeches.
Betsey Lindsey, the conscientious sixteen
year old Jane, in search of romance, looked
the part to a T and acted it with easy poise
and charming sixteen year old fervor.
The members of the cast were coached
by Miss McAlpin and the proceeds were
given to the Senior class.
I THE FIRST I-IIKE
This is a log of a sea going cruise on
land, called by those fans who indulge in
that particular form of amusement "a
hike," but by the ordinary mortal 'tjust
taking awalkf' The cruise was held on
the 5th day of the fourth month in the year
of our Lord nineteen nineteen. It covered
a good deal of that section of our earth in
and around the home port of Bradford.
But lets go into details.
The crew was called together at the un-
earthly hour of 9 o'clock on this particular
Saturday morning. Nine o'clock is an un-
eartlily hour any morning but as every one
knows Saturday morning is the only time
sleep. Well to continue
to get a beauty
with our story. The different members of
the crew headed themselves from their
homes to the barracks at the head of Me-
chanic street. After roll call. and all had
been accounted for the entire fleet steamed
out of the harbor under sealed orders. The
squadron was under personal command of
Admiral Garrison, formerly of Uncle San1's
navy but now in charge of tl1e J7ack's tand
some Jillsj of B. H. S. Admiral Garrison
was on the good ship "Hot Foot" which
lead out of the harbor followed by the other
ships of the line under command of Cap-
tains Harper, Lyman, Hultburg and Col-
The course was set due south for a dis-
tance of two blocks when signal was given
to throw the helm hard aport and the entire
licet sailed majestically into West Wash-
ington-street. Soon all signs of civiliza-
tion was left behind and nothing was seen
on any side tbut landl. Admiral Garrison
now hoisted signal for full speed ahead on
the flag ship "Hot Footf' The speed of
the fleet began to increase until they were
strung out in a long line. It was the great-
est collection of ships, large and small that
ever left this port.
The first part of the cruise was unevent-
ful and after several hours sailing the en-
tire fleet landed at the designated place.
They cast anchor with purpose of taking
on provisions and fuel to continue the trip.
These were plentiful and each member of
the party proceeded to overload. At this
time it was found that two ships had de-
veloped engine trouble. These two boats
were under Captain Harper and Captain
Lyman. It was decided they would put
back to port for repairs and overhauling.
The rest of the crew, after provisions had
been taken aboard and decks washed down,
lifted anchor and set sail.
Nothing happened for some distance af-
ter leaving coaling station until they ap-
proached a narrow channel leading into
what appeared to be a large cave. Here
the fleet halted an dthe admiral called the
captains aboard the flag ship for consulta-
Some members of the fleet thought it too
dangerous to attempt a passage but after
some consultation three or four volunteer-
ed. The admiral, not to be outdone, decid-
ed that the flag ship would be first to make
an attempt. By skillful management he
successfully negotiated the passage. He
was immediately followed by the "Whoz-
B. H. S. YEAR BOOK Sixty-Nine
this" under Ensign McLean. The "VVhoz-
this" received a slight bump on the beak
but no serious damage was done. After the
"Whozthis" came the superdreadnough
' ' Elephantine " under Captain Art Jackson.
Now the most serious trouble of the cruise
developed. The "Elephantine," one of the
largest ships of the fleet with broad beam
and deep draft, became jammed in the pas-
sage way. It took the entire squadron to
extricate it from its dangerous position.
After this serious incident it was evident
that it would not be safe for some other
members of the fleet to make the attempt
so it was decided to about face and put
back to port.
Only one incident of interest occurred on
the return cruise. As the fleet approached
the harbor "Hot Foot" under Admiral
Garrison, and two destroyers attempted to
make port by a short cut through Barn
Yard passage but as the tide was out and
a barn was in the way they h'ad to put back.
This put them at the end of the line but
their greater speed and endurance began
to tell as they passed ship after ship. By
time harbor was reached they were back
in their old places at the head of the line.
A short time later the entire fleet swung
at anchor, the crew had been given shore
leave and had returned to their homes.
The trip pointed out many weaknesses
among the ships, some were underpowered,
some carried too much top bomper, some
seemed to lack endurance, and some need-
ed new propellers. But in spite of the fact
that the entire crew were all so sore they
were unable to go to church the next day,
the cruise was a huge success.
THE HI-Y CLUB
liippiti Hus! Hippiti Hi!
Hot, Cold, Wet Dry,
Keeping pace with all the larger cities
of the -state, the older boys of the High
School and the Y. M. C. A. organized a
Hi-Y Club. Altho this club was late in
getting started, yet its program was a
varied and worth-while one. The lunch
sessions, interspersed with advice on lifc's
problems, the stag party, the game night,
the minstrel entertainment, the musical,
were enjoyed by all the members. Much
hidden talent was found. In the parlor
field meet, Paul Bogart proved a wonderful
army captain of the "Billy Goat Race."
Donald Purdy easily won the "Running
Broad Grin." "Kid" Kelly and "One
Round" Wilcox proved to be f'phenoms"
in the prize ring. At the entertainment of
the literary committee, Madam "Shoo-
man-hike" was there in person. The Day
and Lyons minstrel proved to be worth
f'seeing" and caused "roaring" laughter
The motto of the Hi-Y Club is "Non
Nobis Solumf' its aim is for a perfect de-
velopment in spirit, in mind, in body, and
in our social relations with man. Its colors
are orange and black. Its officers are
Frederic Schwab, President, Richard
Richie, Vice President, Leon Joseph, Secre-
tary-Treasurer. Much is expected from
this club in the future.
The Pageant was given in the High
School auditorium on Tuesday evening,
May 6th, at eight o'clock by the pupils of
tl1e High School. The proceeds were for
the purpose of purchasing a Victrola. The
pageant was a brief history of the war. The
girls entered tl1e stage in the order in which
the countries, that they represented, eu-
tered the war. The costumes were very
well gotten up and worn gracefully by the
girls. A fair sized audience attended and
was very much pleased with the perform-
ance. Much credit is due Miss McAlpin
and Mr. Lull for their tireless efforts in
coaching the chorus and those having
THE CAN DY-PULL
The chemistry classes met in the labora-
tory on the Friday before Christmas vaca-
tion, and under the direction of Miss Con-
klin, staged a candy-pull. The ingredients
for the candy were brought by the students
and cooked in the laboratory. Most of the
other students and teachers too, of the
High School became interested and made
frequent visits to the laboratory. It is one
more good time to be attributed to the ef-
forts of Miss Conklin.
B. H. S. YEAR BOOK
After 11111011 entreating, wailing, illld
gnashing of teeth, the Senior class finally
secured the p01'1lllSSl011 of the moguls of the
school board to hold a series of dances in
the high school gym. After retiring ex-
hausted from the fateful meeting, with the
coveted permit ill their hand, the dance
committee, Donald Purdy, Julia bniith and
Guy Hughey, proceeded to make arrange-
ments for the dances.
The first dance was held after the St.
Bona basketball ga111e, and the visiting
players were the guests of the class. There
was a fairly large attendance, considering
the inclement weather. Collins orchestra
furnished the music, a11d the faculty fur-
nished the chaperonage, so we were very
well taken care of. The dance was a de-
cided success, so the hard working commit-
tee began laying their plans for their sec-
Before the next dansant, the connnittee
had finally got next to Mr. Garrison's heart
and received his consent to waxing the
Hoor. Yes, the iirst dance was on a floor
that had not been waxed. This second
dance was held on the evening of April 15.
The musical P1'OgJ,'I"2I1H was rendered by
Hnsted and Sorrentino's orchestra. The
dancing co11ti11ued until one o'clock, but in
the meanwhile the school board was in ses-
sion down stairs and deciding to limit thc
dances to twelve o'clock. liittle did we
anticipate this fateful decision, but the
school appreciates the board's action i11
permitting dancing in the gy111, and we are
sure that if the school fathers think we
should retire at twelve o 'elock. they know
Not all of our opportunities for educa-
tional 2idVHI1C0lI1QI1lI are contined to the class
room. In the weekly asse111blies during the
past year a variety of pleasing and instruc-
tive entertainment has been afforded the
teachers and pupils of the high school.
Many of the topics dwelt upon by the
different speakers have pertained to the
war. Hon. A. R. Johnson explained the
fourteen points of President NVilson's plan
in a way to make tilfxlll clear to all. Rabbi
Schwab gave a timely address on current
topics. Mayor North and Hon. R. B. Stone
aroused the spirit of patriotism and loyalty
by their inspiring appeals. Hon. VV. YV.
Brown spoke in retrospective 111ood of see-
Among those who brought us lirst hand
information concerning different phases of
war activities were Major Schoonmaker,
Hev. F. R. 'McArthur, Major Hogan and
Mr. ll. M. Garrison of the U. S. Navy.
Dr. Uvers, who is always welcome, told
how he was al111ost a millionaire in darkest
Africa and related l1is thrilling experience
as a tribal chief.
An interesting talk in lighter vein was
given by Mr. Ames.
Ea rl S. Weber of the Board of Commerce
spoke to the oint on "Choosing an Occu-
pation." .lie pointed out the 11eed for i11-
dustrial education in addition to tl1e acade-
mic pursuits i11 our schools. -
I ocal talent was exhibited in a-pleasing
manner in the selections given by Lewis E.
Emery, Mrs. NVerthman and NV. Earl
Doctor 'Barker of Mechanic's Institute,
Rochester, presented the opportunities for
various kinds of training in his school, and
gave a series of stereoptican views showing
the various phases of work at the institute.
