This year the freshmen have the privil-
ege of having a Freshman Glee Club. This
is the first year we have had the opportun-
ity of having a separate club. We meet
twice each week. We feel that we have
made good progress in our singing. Miss

This year's sophomores proved that the
old saying, "You can tell a sophomore, but
vou can't tell him much," does not always
hold true. This year we are very proud of
our splendid showing on the honor roll.
At the beginning of the first semester,
the following officers were elected:
Cleo Kopp, presidentg Helen Phelps, vice
presidentg Bob Seeds, secretary-treasurerg
Cecile Ames, Ernest Linden, Student Coun-
The sophomore class did its part in help-
ing to make the Carnival another big suc
cess. Carol Velde and Ernest Linden were
the candidates for Queen and King.
The All-School Christmas party was
sponsored by our class. The first part of
the evening was spent in playing games
and dancing. The highlight of the party
was the arrival of none other than Santa
to tell us of his "Second Marriage." Be-
lieve it or not, he also read us some letters
that he had received from various students
and teachers, telling him what they want-
ed for Christmas. Last but not least, came
the distribution of the gifts, candies and
fruits. Even high school students think
Christmas is incomplete without a Santa
The sophomore boys made a fine show-
ing in athletics this year. The reserve bas-
ketball team was made up almost entire-
ly of our sophomore boys. This included
the following: Dan McKean, Jack Hannon,
Dick Herder, Bob Perkins, and Billy Bar-
ton. The former boys were on the football
team, and also, Tom Mowbray, Eddie Mow-
bray, Leland Wright, and Hyle Taylor. Al-
though we had no outstanding athletes this
year, we expect them to really "go to
town" in the next two years.
In fact this holds true for the entire
class. Keep your eye on this class for
scholarship, athletics and activities.

Bradford High's treasure house of wis-
dom ts one of the most popular rooms in
the building. Yes, it is popular for more
than one reason. Why shou.ldn't a library
with almost five thousand books with gay-
colored bindings be a pleasant place to
spend your leisure time? We like to linger
here not only for our interest in books but
also for seeking pleasure when no teacher
is persent. The student libarians are al-
ways near to help us find what we want
and see that our voices are gentle and low.
If y0u are a student of English, you will
not find it necessary to buy text books as
there are about thirty-five sets to be stu-
died in classrooms. If you are looking for
a book to read "just for fun," there are
several hundred on the shelves. If you wish
to delve into the past, you will find rows
and rows of history, science, and English
reference books. If you are interested in
household arts, your wants will be satis-
fied by the home economics library. If you
aspire to be a farmer, you can find out al-
most anything you wish to know from the
several hundred books .in the agriculture
room. If you have gone through these thou-
sands of books and have not found the de-
sired information, you may try the World
Book or any of the other four sets of en-
cyclopedias. If you are a poor speller or if
a new word 'stumps" you, there are many
dictionaries which you may consult.
The school also subscribes to some forty
magazines which come weekly, bi-weekly,
or monthly. For pleasure you may read
such as The Saturday Evening Post, Col-
liers. and Life. For those who like to keep
up with what is going on in the world,
there are the Readers' Digest, Time, or
Scholastic. For the latest fashions, con-
sult McCall's, Pictorial Review, and The
Ladies' Home Journal. If your mind runs
toward science, read Popular Mechanics
and Popular Science. Then, there are many
farm magazines for those who like the
The life of a librarian is not as smooth
sailing as it may seem. Just try to keep
tab on several hundred books which are
in circulation all of the time and see what
a task it is. Reference books are checked
out for one night only and all others for a
period of two weeks. The penny-a-day fines
which are imposed on the careless and the
forgetful ones help to buy many supplies
which are needed.
We feel sure that no small school has
a better library than we have and it we
make use of all these books and magazines
is there any reason why we shouldn't be
