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.
