Sixteen 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 77 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 you. 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. UTOPIA. 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. And chocolateil' '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.
