TTIISS GRHNTHATTI "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 Grantham.

A Student Council Seated, left to right-Lola Mae Turner, John Howes, President, Mr. E-dmundson, Advisor, Wilma Sellers, Secretary, John McKean. ' Second row-Earnest Linden, Darlene Linden, Tom Nevitt, Mary Ellen Calhoun, . Richard Owens. "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- donian. 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 freshmen, 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 days. 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."
