Our Library LIBRARY Seated, left to right-Isobel Burwell, Lucille Ryan, Miss Vanzant, at desk, Lola Mae Turner. Standing-Virginia Reed, Marjorie Clausen, Dorothy Forbes, Cecile Ames, Lillian Webber. By LILLIAN WEBBER What do you do with your leisure time? Ask a Bradford High School stu- dent and he will answer, "I go to the library to read," and why not? If you knew there was a room in your house which contained five thousand interest- ing books and more than forty maga- zines, could you possibly pass up the op- portunity of "dropping in" once in a while? Neither can the B. H. S. students. Our library contains books for all-for those who are trying to become a little more intelligent and for those who are just seeking pleasure. There are rows and rows of science, history, economics, vo- cational, English and Latin reference, be- sides thirty-five sets of classics for Eng- lish courses. Then, too, there are en- cyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, and numerous other reference books. The card catalog helps you to find the titles of books, the authors, and the reading list on which the various books may be found. I am sure you have noticed the line of students going to the magazine rack in the study hall and to the wire basket in the library. The history student is looking for e Time or Scholastic, the speech class for the Readers Digest, News Week, Forum, or American Observer, the farmers for the Live Stock Producer, Breeders Gazette, and numerous oth- ers: the furniture makers for Home Craftsman, Deltagram, or Popular Mechanics, the homemakers for Good Housekeeping, McCalls, Hygeia, or Fore- cast: the pleasure seekers for Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and Life, Books and magazines are checked out for two weeks or for one night accord- ing to the type of book. If a student keeps a book longer than he should, he will find himself 'forking over" a penny for each day it is over due. If you walk into the library any time of day, you can find students "bustling" around, hunting for books or looking up reports, or maybe you find some one seemingly interested in a magazine. Sud- denly the active library becomes quiet. Why? For no other reason except that a teacher appears on the scene. After the teacher leaves, the high sign is giv- en and the library is once more a scene of activity. At all times students are seen beating down the well-worn path to the library and come back with a more in- telligent mind.

These members represent us at each meeting of the Student Council. They are Mary Ellen Calhoun and Tom Nevltt. Our spun- sors are Miss Bischoff and Mr. Wilcox. The freshman class was very well represented at the carnival, Donna Web- ber and Bob Forbes were king and queen representatives. They put up a, very close race, The Niggerbaby Booth, Ring a Prize and Swimming Match were the freshman booths. The first freshman party was a Leap Year Party where the girls were the ag- gressive ones. The most eligible and in- eligible bachelors were chosen by propu- lar vote. It was the first of its kind and was the biggest success of the year--we think! The freshman class, as a whole. has rated very well on the honor roll and perfect attendance. Nine of the freshman showedtheir mus- ical skill by becoming members of the Mixed Chorus, and speech skill by outside public speaking work sponsored by Miss Campbell. Eight of the freshman boys Went out for athletics. Bob Forbes played guard on the varsity team.
