Student Council First Row-left to right-Lynn Velde, Wilma Sellers, Tom Landes, President: Charlotte Dunbar, Secretary: Mr. Edmundson. Second Row-Dick Owens, Lucille Ryan, John Howes, Earnest Linden, Cecile Ames. 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 at Delavan. 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.

.., FRANCIS G. CLARK, B. S. University of Illinois VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURAL INSTRUCTOR 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. 4 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.
