Our Library Seated at tables-left to right-Gloria Welsh, Virginia Reed, Frances Reed. Standing-Nina Beeney, Cleo Kopp, Isabel Burwell, Spencer Landes, Miss Vanzant- seated at desk-Lola Mae Turner. 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 country. 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 well-informed?

The Student Council members are Lucille Ryan and Dick Owens. The Freshman class advisors are Miss Bischoff and Mr. Wilcox. There were twenty-eight members of our class at the beginning of the year. Hazel and Jack Purvis moved from Bradford at the end of the first semester. 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 Bischoff was our conductor This year the freshman candidates for the Carnival King and Queen were Lucille Ryan and Dick Heinzmann. We had two booths for our class. The girls had the Col- umbus Game and the boys had "Spill the Milk." The freshman boys made a good show- ing at the turn out for athletics. Ten boys out of fourteen went out for football and basketball. Dick Heinzmann, Phil Harney and Bob Wright played with the second team in football. Sometimes Jim Maupin and Dick Owens got to help hold back the opponents. During the basketball season the fresh- man team won most of their games. The genuine interest of these boys helped con- siderably to overcome the handicap of their sm'all statures. James Maupin was chosen for the cast of "Lucky Star." We also have a, Freshman Dramatic club which meets once 3 week. We practice dramatic and speech fundamentals and work on some one-act plays. Miss Wass is our instructor. James Maupin and Lucille Ryan have appeared on the honor roll throughout the entire year. At some of our class meetings we had performances for the purpose of teaching us manners. We used as 9, text-book "Man- ners For Moderne." Committees were ap- pointed to act out the correct way of set- ting 'a table, introducing guests, eating at formal banquets and every day acts of cour- tes . 'lqhe enthusiasm and cooperation of this class was shown when the class entertain- ed the school with an Easter party the lat- ter part of March.
