"Do as I say, and not as I do," is the
advice of most teachers. But this isn't
true of Miss Grantham, the home econom-
ics teacher of Bradford High School. She
says, "Do as I do if you wish to enjoy life."
For no one enjoys life more than Miss
Grantham. She is pleasant in class, the
halls, and to all students at informal meet-
ings. Miss Grantham is also a promoter.
She organized the women teachers into
a corporation for the purpose of purchas-
ing a '28 Chevie, christened "Katie." The
teachers had lots of fun traveling about
in the car and took plenty of kidding from
the student body as to the method in
which it was steered down the highways.
Since that time Miss Grantham traded her
partnership in "Katie" for at Chevie of
a. later model. Miss Grantham is also
very progressive. She was one of the first
teacher in the state to recognize the
value of unit course in home economics.
She served on the state committee for the
reorganization of the curriculum. As a re-
sult Bradford High School was among the
first high schools in the state to have
home economics taught by the unit course.
Miss Grantham enjoys taking pictures.
So with her camera she is always having
students posing, taking pictures of school
affairs, etc. The student council certain-
ly appreciates her in this hobby for it
is a great help to the annual. So it is
with great pleasure that the student
council of Bradford High School dedi-
cate this issue to a competent, cheerful
and progressive teacher, Miss Winifred

"Ask the Student Council" is a fam-
iliar saying when new suggestions or
questions arise in any class or club. They
also sponsor Big Brother and Sister Day,
The Carnival, Home Coming and the Bra-
Two events that members of the stu-
dent Council always look forward to are
the District and State Conventions. At the
district meeting in East Peoria this fall
we not only received much interesting in-
forimation about council organization, soc-
ial :problems in the schools, and financing
student coun-cil activities, but also Lola
Mae Turner was elected secretary of the
Pekin District, Mr. Edmundson and three
delegates will attend the state convention
which is held at Carbondale in Afpril. We
feel that we received a great deal of valu-
able information here besides meeting stu-
dents from schools all over the state,
The annual home coming and carnival
was the big event of the year for the stu-
dent council. This was especially exciting
this year for we played our rival, T-oulon,
in the afternoon. Of course nothing could
stir up more enthusiasm than the parade
-at noon. This consisted of clever floats
from the various classes, clubs and indiv-
uals. The band leading the parade, start-
ed from the school, marched through the
main streets, and back to school before
the game started, During the intermission
at the half the bicycle floats paraded
around the field and the winners of the
parade were announced.
Although much excitement was aroused
during the day, this was mild compared
to the usual excitement aroused at a
good carnival. The first part of the eve-
ning was spent in enjoying the variety of
booths, confetti, dancing and bingo. The
student council was in charge of the bingo
g-ame and the winners were 'pleased with
their nice prizes. The carnival king and
queen, Jerry Holland and Helen Alex-
ander were crowned at eleven o'clock.
One of the student council's biggest
projects is Big Brother and Sister Day.
This is held each spring. The student
council visits the different grade schools
in the Bradford High School territory and
invites all eighth grade students to at-
tend the high school for one day. The
visitors are taken by the freshmen and
shown around the school. They visit all
the classes they will attend next year as
Another responsibility of the student
council is the printing of -the annual. We
publish this as a visual description of
student life-so that all students after
graduation may look back on their school
The student council wishes to be re-
membered by all students as a clearing
house of all friction in the school between
classes or otherwise. Its motto is a "'Big-
ger and Better B. H. S."
