The Freshmen started off with a bang in Sentember 1936, or should we say the Sen- iors did the banging, which was really true the day and night of initiation when we all had our fun at what they called a party. Our officers were elected at the first class meeting: President, Bob Realg vice president, John Howesg secretary-treasurer. Rosemary Breen. We chose Lorraine Wilt and Bill Harney as Student Council mem- bers, but due to illness Bill Harney quit school and Spencer Landes was then chos- en. Miss Dollins and Mr. Wilcox are our class advisors. At the carnival the boys conducted the Niger Head Booth and the girls, the Beauty Parlor.

The country school program added greatly to the spice of the evening. The majority of the sophomore class is interested in dramatics, and results show in the fact that many of us were chosen for the casts of the three act and one-act plays.

The letters were earned in football. basketball and track. Throughout the year the Sophomores were well represented on the honor roll.

Back Row-Camilla Kelly, Kenny Johnston, Warren Hallock, Genevieve Hall, Lorraine Wilt, Spencer Landes. Transition from an over-sized body with few powers to a compact, efficient, and strong organization was accomplished this year by the Student Council. Rules which govern the student body are made by the council, but which must not conflict with those already made by the faculty. The council has meetings every week for the discussion of any problems arising. The duties of the Student Council are many. One of the heaviest is the Homecom- ing and Carnival which is held every year. To this we invite all of the Alumni by spec- ial invitations and any one else who wishes to attend. The Bradford Business men's co- operation in this aids greatly to make it a, great success and is very much appreciated by the students of Bradford High School. Another duty of the Student Council is managing "Big Brother and Sister Day." This gives all of the eighth grade students of the surrounding schools a chance to peep into high school and see what makes the wheels go round. They attend classes with the freshmen and at noon are served a free lunch by the Home Ec. Department. This is usually a great day at B. H. S. as there are often as many as 100 eighth graders present. The Student Council sets the dates for all school parties and buys necessary things as Athletic equipment, uniforms, which were purchased this year. and a radio This group strives to instill a feeling of democracy among the students along with the assum- ing of executive duties which are vested in the hands of the students.
