FRANCIS G. CLARK, B. S.
University of Illinois
THE BRADFORD HORSE SHOW, 1938
An organization which owes most of its
success to F. G-. Clark, who has been an
active President for several years.
In dedicating this annual to Mr. Clark
the student council feel that they are dedi-
cating it to the most popular member of
the high school faculty. Mr. Clark has
taught Vocational Agriculture in the Brad-
ford High School for ten years and has al-
ways been very popular with the students
and faculty. His genial smile and amiable
nature attract the bashful freshmen for
friendly adviceg his quiet manner and
sound judgment command respect of
the upper classmang his cheerful manner
and good nature make him popular among
the faculty membersg and his willingness
to assist anyone in the community or to
devote his time to community projects
mark him as a civic leader.
Mr. Clark and the Bradford Horse
Show are synonymous terms. He has serv-
ed as its president since its beginning in
1934 and has been instrumental in its de-
velopment. Although the weather man has
been rather stingy with good weather Mr.
Clark did not allow this to interfere with
the program. Everyone who attends the
show is well satisfied with it's management
and each year the show increases in size.
Aside from this Mr. Clark is popular in
other community a-ctivities being Worship-
ful Master of the Masonic Lodge, and past
president of the Community Club. So it is
with great pleasure that the Student Coun-
cil dedicate this year's Bradonian to the
good fellow and teacher, Mr. Francis Clark.

The organization at Bradford High School
which has charge of all extra curricular
activities is the Student Council. Every
year many new ideas are introduced by
this organization to make Bradford High
School a more interesting place to attend.
A few of the functions that the Student
Council sponsor are the Annual Homecom-
ing, Carnival and Big Brother and Sister
day. The Carnival proved to be a. tremen-
dous success this year, many new booths
were introduced and a very good free per-
formance was given. The Student Council
solicited the local business men for prizes
for a carnival drawing and the business
men contributed very generously giving
sixty-five prizes in all. These prizes ranged
all the way from 31.50 in cash to a chicken.
Ticket were made and chances sold on
this drawing and it proved to be 9, money
making scheme. Different members of the
Student Council also supervised a, car par-
ade before the Homecoming game and many
prizes were given for the best floats. Be-
tween the halt a bicycle parade was staged
and many students participated. The main
feature of the evening was the election of
the Carnival Oueen and the King. It proved
to be one of the most hotly contested elect-
ions ever held and Norma Ames Seniors
finally won. Big Brother and Sister day is
always heralded by the Student Council
members for they are allowed to use the
teachers cars and visit all the country
schools and personally invite the eighth
grade students to attend school for a day.
About eighty-five students attended last
year and all acted as if they h'ad received
a good sampling of high school life.
This year the Student Council joined the
State Student Council Association and at-
tended the district meeting held at Delavan.
Here the different members took part in
panel discussions such as School Spirit and
Morale, Honor Study Halls, Pep meetings.
and School Spirit. They also heard talks
on successful projects other Student Coun-
cils had sponsored. Tom Landes gave a
three minute talk on Big Brother and Sis-
ter day. At night all the members and Mr.
Edmundson attended a banquet and heard
a very interesting speaker.
On March 31 and April 1 the Student
Council also attended the State convention
held at Peoria. Schools from all over the
state were represented at this meeting and
Bradford was proud to be one of them.
This meeting was similiar to the one held
Tom Landes, Student Council President,
and Lynn Velde, a member, were chosen
by the Bradford Community Club and Amer-
ican Legion Post to attend the Premier
Boy's State at Springfield.
