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

We were shipwrecked with the freshmen
on October 8, 1936. when we sponsored a.
shipwreck party for them. This courtesy
was returned by a St. Valentine party which
we greatly appreciated. Our all-school
Christmas party was enjoyed by every one
who attended it. Bill Code lived up to the
expectations of Santa Claus by distributing
candv fruits and gifts to the guests. 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. We have an interested group among
the rleclamatory entrants.

big orange B's you will find sophomore

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
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
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.
