SENIGR CLASS HISTORY The class of '46 entered Bradford High School on August 31, 1942. At the first meeting of the group of forty-one stu- dents, John Lawson was elected president, Mary Real vice-president, Jim Cahill sec- retary, John Scott treasurer, Student Council representatives Mary Jane Heinz- mann and Jack Carroll. Thirteen boys won their numerals in football and two also won letters that fall. The chief money-raising activity of the class was the scrap-drive conducted during the Homecomng in which they placed second. Other sports, band, chorus and various clubs also received a, great deal of atten- tion from our group. By the beginning of the school year '43- '44 the number had been reduced to thirty- five. Officers elected were: president, Mary Real: vice-president, John Lawson, secretary, Marlo Thomas, treasurer, Cath- erine Code: Student Council, Jim Cahill. The class was again very active in sports with an almost record number for a class of six winning letters in football. Four sophomores also made the Varsity squad in basketball. The main class proj- ects were the building of a float at the Homecoming in which they placed second. ing of the Christmas party. Again the girls matched the boys' active participa- tion in extra-curricular activities by their work in such fields as music and dra- matics. Our group was still further reduced in our junior year to a total of thirty-one. Officers elected at the first meeting were: Howard Moody, presidentg Earl Hawkins, vice-president: secretary, Mary Real: treasurer, Beatrice Campbell: Jack Car- roll, Student Council representative. The strong interest evinced by the group in the previous two years in extra-curricular activities was never more plainly shown than in that year. Six boys held positions on the Varsity squad in basketball with eleven winning berths at one time or an- other on the first team in football. Sever- al members were very active in the dra- matic field, participating in several school plays besides the junior play. A "Sadie Hawkins" party was given by our class as their all-school party for the year which was really something new. The principal contribution of the group was the presen- tation of a Junior-Senior Prom: the first one in several years, which was one of the highlights of the year. Twenty-nine students returned to Brad- ford High at the start of our last year with Earl Hawkins being elected presi- dent: John Lawson, vice-president: How- ard Moody, secretaryg Beatrice Campbell, treasurer: Student Council representa- tives, Jim Cahill and Mary Jane Heinz- mann. The class sold candy, pop and oth- er confections at all the athletic events as well as at school every day, thus earning money for their Chicago trip. The year which would be the climax of our hign school days saw the class' participation in activities at a maximum. Seven boys were on the football team and five on the first squad in basketball. Band, Chorus, Dramatics and other organizations bene- fitted by the members' work. A play, "Girl Shy," with an all-Senior cast was presented in December. Thus we bring to a close our fourth year in Bradford High, a happy and active one as were the other three. v + -I' ' ' ' I fl QQ: V 5 f' 67902 if X- A , -A W Q-SQ' 'rf afi, .L Q is ij?-, 5 C QLHSSES JUNIORS Left to Right-First Row-Barbara Woodford, Dolores Mitchell, Lois Kelly, Joanne Hickey, Phyllis Tumbleson, Miss Wetzel, adviser, Joan Finnegan, Pauline Sturm, Margaret Sturm, Maxine Scott, Aileen Manning, Cleo Dixon.

The class officers are: President, Theresa Ann Calhoun. Vice-President, Bernard Cahill. Secretary, Dolores Mitchell. Treasurer, Phyllis Tumbleson. The "Jolly Juniors" are interested in sports and other extra-curricular activi- ties and many are members of the Band, F. F. A., Chorus and others. Theresa Calhoun and Dolores Mitchell act as cheerleaders for the student body. The girls' basketball team has been very suc- cessful with Marilyn Emmons as captain. Bonny Reinbeck went to the sectional music contest with piano and low voice and Dolores Mitchell went in the high voice vocal class. The Juniors are rep- resented in the Girls' Ensemble which also went to the contest by Theresa Calhoun, Dolores and Bonny. During the course of the year, the class of "47" sponsored a movie and a chili din- ner besides producing a play. However, the main activity of the year was the Junior-Senior prom which proved very successful. The Juniors wish to express sincere thanks to their class advisers, Miss Wet- zel and Mr. Terwilliger for their part in making our third year at B. H. S. a suc- cess.

Officers who were elected at the initial meeting of the group are: President, Anna Mae Grubaugh. Vice-President, Phyllis Thompson. Secretary, Benny Pettegrew. Treasurer, Dave Brown. Student Council representatives, Mar- jorie Reed and Dave Malone. The ingenuity of the class bore its first fruits at the Homecoming when we re- ceived second prize for our exhibit: a grave, with a white cross at its head, in which Toulon was supposedly buried. The king and queen named by the class to rep- resent them were Phil Code and Celestine Stotler. As it has done since its inception two years ago, our class proved its interest in the field of extra-curricular activities by its active participation in sports, music and drama. Strengthening the Panthers' football squad were several boys from the class. Phil Code, Donald Cook and Bob Lee won letters. The sophomores were also prominent on the hardwoods, "Dooz" Malone and Phil Code turned the experi- ence of their first year to good advantage by showing more than average ability. Not to be outdone by the boys, the feminine members of the group added their v0Cal talent to the chorus. Anna Mae Grubaugh was a member of the Ensem- ble. Anna Mae joined the Thespians dur- ing the year and is one of the school's cheerleaders. The Christmas party, traditionally the Sophomores, was given by them this year at which games, refreshments and the ex- change of -gifts were the order of the day. Our thanks go to Mr. Arthur and Miss Thomas fOr guiding US so ably through our second year at Bradford High.

Thanks to the Seniors' help, we all suc- ceeded in going through the initiation early in the year without losing our lives. Our first contribution to the school was a. booth at the Homecoming, which won first prize. Our class was well-represented in ath- letics, with a large percentage of the boys out for football and basketball. We are also represented in the Band with 13 studying under Mr. Arthur at this time. They are: Walter Harmon, James Gill, Loren Wright, Wanda McKeever, Edythe Eble, Genevieve Van Ostrand, Pat Ryan, Doreen Ringenberg, Verna Wabel, Barbara Carroll, and Muriel Campbell.

Blogoey STUDENT COUNCIL Left to Right-First Row-Muriel Campbell, Marjorie Reed, Dave Malone, Theresa Calhoun. Second Row-Jay Hickey, Mary Jane Heinzmann, Bill Green, Jack Carroll, Jim Ca.- hill The Student Council is an organization under the supervision of Mr. Hanson which has charge of all extra-curricular activities of the high school. The group consists of a boy and girl from each class, a president from the Senior class and a secretary elected by the Council from the student body. Last year's plan of allowing each class and organization one representative was discarded this year in favor of the old method because one class often held a majority vote. 'The members of the Stu- dent Council this year are: President, Jack Carroll: Secretary, Theresa Calhoung Senior representatives, Mary Jane Heinz- mann and Jim Cahillg Junior representa- tives, Jay Hickey and Pat Tilson Know transferredlg Sophomore representatives, Dave Malone and Marjorie Reed, Fresh- man representatives, Bill Green and Muri- el Campbell. The purpose of the Student Council is set forth in the Constitution drawn up this year: it is to promote more loyal school spirit and to cooperate with the faculty in regulating the school calendar, student activities and social functions of the school. This Constitution, the first the group has had in several years, also gives a definite outline of the organization's duties and internal set-up. The three major works of the year for the Council is the planning of the Home- comingg the publication of the Bradonian and the carrying out of the activities dur- ing Big Brother and Sister Day. Compli- mentary tickets were also issued to eighth graders throughout the territory, enabling them to see the games, plays etc. in the school free of charge. Perhaps the most important job of all, however, is the publishing of our annual, the Bradonian, through which is shown the life and activities of the student body during the year. We hope that the Student Council will be able to attend the Student Council Convention which will be held in Peoria this spring. Those who serve in this organization gain a valuable knowledge of government in action and learn how to work and co- operate with other students. OUR LIBRARY I , 4. A. 4 J ,,, 2. .f" , ' GW Left to Right-Bonny Reinbeck, Charlotte Phelps, Mary Jane Heinzmann, Miss Van- zant, Catherine Code, Laverne ,Albrecht and Barbara Graham. Charlotte Phelps There are no injections or pink pills for learning. A student who has no inclina- tion to learn more will be very apt to think that he knows enough. That is why we have spent so much time and ef- fort, and made provision for good books in our library. This year we have added 125 new books, some of the most popular of which are: Pastoral, The Shining Trail, Heroes of the Pacific, Separate Star, The Missouri, Granite Harbor, and Storm Can- vas. Our library contains more than 5,100 books which offer a large field of reading material. Among the reference books we find science, history, vocational, econom- ics, travel, biography, Latin, and litera- ture which give the students opportunity to read on almost any subject. There are many sets of classics which are used as text books in the various English classes. Some of our many magazines, such as Life, Reader's Digest, Saturday Evening Post, and Harper's are kept in the study hall where everyone may read them. Good Housekeeping, McCa1l's, Hygeia, and others are kept in the Home Economics department. Popular Mechanics, Country Gentleman, Home Craftsman, Prairie Farmer, and all the farm magazines are kept in the agriculture room for ready reference. This year the library was arranged dif- ferently making it much more convenient and attractive. The desk and card cata- log were placed in front of the windows, and the fence in front of the reference books was removed so that the books were more accessible to the students. A table was taken out and another book- case added. The library is one of the most popular rooms in the school. The card files and shelf lists were all checked over, refiled, and brought up to date. The card catalog includes the au- thor, title, and subject which makes it easy for anyone to locate a book. Readers' cards are being used this year for the first time. A card for each student shows what books are checked out by each. The library is supervised by Miss Van- zant who is assisted by six students who do housekeeping duties, help prepare books for the shelves, check books and periodicals, post notices for fines, and file cards above the rods. Reading has been called the "greatest engine that human genius has evolved" and it should be possible for every one to have free access to the best and most in- teresting minds of all the ages as they have been brought down to us in books. It is a privilege to read what has been done and thought in the past so that we may build upon this past experience. Our library furnishes this opportunity. HOMEMAKING SENIOR HOMEMAKING CLASS Left to Right-Betty Wright, Vivian Howell, Betty Wetzel, adviserg Charlotte Phelps, Laverne Albrecht, Harriet Vest, Mary Real, Beverly Weber. The homemaking classes this year proved to be very interesting and educa- tional. It is of much advantage to girls in every walk of life, even for the girl who is planning a business career, because it helps create a pleasing personality, teaches her how to choose and wear more becoming' clothes and how to fit herself into her social surroundings. Always during one's lifetime there are situations in which one can use her homemaking training. The past year the homemaking classes have done a variety of things. Even though many of the units for each year have approximately the same title they are viewed from a different angle and in each succeeding year are gone into more thoroughly. Below is a short resume of a few of the units covered by each class. The freshmen studied personality build- ing and how to make and keep friends as their first units. These girls made the aprons they wore in the foods laboratory. When it was time to work on foods they started out very simply using breakfasts HOMEMAKING SOPHOMORE HOMEMAKING CLASS Left to Right-Charlene Tracy, Joanne Shaw, Phyllis Thompson, Marjorie Anderson, Audrey Dennison, Myrtle Thumma and Pat Harris. as their first experiment. Later they progressed to luncheons. Along with their food unit they studied table etiquette and later studied other phases of good be- havior. The sophomore girls studied more ad- vanced units in grooming, family rela- tions, etiquette and nutrition. Quite a bit of time was spent in making garments and working in the foods laboratory. By the time the girls are juniors they are studying budgets, health, child care, 22 advanced food and clothing. The senior girls worked on individual units. These they did separately and at their own leisure. Group discussions about the units gave each girl a chance to voice her opinions on each unit. A few of the units covered were home nursing, family budgets, and accounts, tailoring a. wool garment, child psycholo- gy and marriage. At Christmas time all the classes worked on a Christmas unit. On the whole it was a very successful year. HOMEMAKING F. H. A.

The Future Farmers of America strive to encourage thrift, honor, honesty, and all qualities thatproduce leadership. This organization is nationally known, and all respect their organization highly. When a freshman enters the F. F. A. Club, he is first given his greenhand de- gree, then a year later he attains the Fu- ture Farmer Degree. Two other degrees may be obtained, the State and American Farmer degrees. The State Farmer Degree is bestowed upon certain individuals who have re- ceived school grades not lower than a B and who have invested S250 in livestock or otherwise. These boys are picked by the state officers. Few boys receive this honor. The high- est degree is the American Farmer. Only boys with a high scholastic average and an amount of S500 in cash may acquire it. One boy in every one thousand is eligible. The officers for the present year: President, Jim Cahill. Vice-President, Max Scott. Secretary, John Cox. Treasurer, Bernie Cahill. Reporter, Dave Malone and Roy Ehnle, Sentinel. p The organization also promotes many other activities such as public speaking contests, sectional meetings, sectional newspapers and parliamentary procedure. Our teacher and advisor, Mr. Terwilli' ger, who teaches all agricultural subjects including farm shop and farm mechanics, is well-liked and respected by all members. AGRICULTURE SHOP Left to Right-Mr. Terwilllger, Jim Cahill, Don Philhower, Gordon Thompson, Her- bert Reed, Roy Ehnle and Chester Grubaugh. Shop is an especially interesting sub- ject to all boys because it gives them the chance to make things themselves. It is also a worthwhile subject because of the vocational training it offers. All proj- ects must be drawn to scale before they are actually started, thus giving valuable training in the field of mechanical draw- ing. The boys learn how to work with hand tools and how to sharpen them as well as to work with power machinery. Besides 28 this you learn about the different types of wood, nails, screws, tools and finishes. Miscellaneous subjects too numerous to mention are included. Invaluable practical training is given in this way which the students may have use for in future life. Some of the projects successfully com- pleted this year are: tables, lamps, bowls, stands, trays, holders, hog troughs and other things made in Fann Shop for use on the farm.

There has been added interest in our Commercial Department since our stu- dents at Bradford High School realize more and more the need, in this post-war era, for men and women who have had training in commercial subjects. It is our aim to provide these people-efficient and well trained. In the beginning course in typewriting, the student learns to operate the machine with a fairly high degree of skill, as well as learning many of the practical and personal use-s of it. Typewriting and shorthand I are offered as a foundation for those who expect to earn their living do- ing stenographical work. In this begin- ning class of shorthandg the students learn the fundamentals and also begin to take dictation at a speed of from 60 to 100 words per minute, and to transcribe their shorthand notes into longhand. The second year of shorthand and type- writing is offered as one subject to stu- dents who have had the beginning course in shorthand and typewriting. The course consists largely of dictation and tran- ifzription, along with general office prac- ce. In bookkeeping this year, the students learn the theory and how to apply it to practical problems and methods of the present day. It is a very useful subject, and will help the student in almost any field he chooses to enter.

The Girls' Chorus had an active part in the Christmas program given December 19, 1945. A pantomime was presented by the Thespian Club with the Chorus sing- ing many Christmas carols. For the closing number of the program the audi- ence rose while the Chorus sang "The Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's Mes- siah. Bradford, this year, was well represent- ed at contest by several soloists and the Ensemble. The contest was held at Peoria March 2, 1946. Due to the graduation of several from the Ensemble, there have been many new members. The Ensemble sang at many social events in the community during the past year. The annual Blackhawk Chorus Festival was held at Toulon April 10, 1946, under the direction of Clarence Sawhill, Uni- versity of Illinois. Bonny Jean Reinbeck has accompanied the Chorus through the year.

Since the band lost very few members from graduation last year it has made ex- cellent progress the past year. The band played at all the football games and presented a program for all conference basketball games. The band also played for the Parent Teachers Or- ganization. The biggest musical event for the band was the Blackhawk Music Festival held at Galva, Illinois, April 30, 1946. The band spent much time in preparing for this event. The band attended the contest at Peoria April 16, 1946. Several soloists were presented during the year by Mr. Arthur, our director, who deserves a lot of praise for his splendid work with the band and also with the be- ginners band.

This is a great honor for anyone who enjoys participating in dramatics of any form. Our troupe 139 was organized in 1943 when Miss Thompson was dramatic in- structor. The following two years the so- ciety was very successful under the spon- sorship of Miss McElwain. During the past year, it has continued to grow under the sponsorship of Miss Thomas, who acts as counselor. The present officers are: President, Earl Hawkins. Vice-President, Jim Cahill. Secretary, Theresa Ann Calhoun. Treasurer, John Scott. Although our troupe lost over half of its members through graduation last year, it has continued to do excellent work. It has also secured eight new members. They were formally initiated on the evening of December 12th in the very impressive ceremony characteristic of Thespian or- ganizations throughout the nation. Fol- lowing this, the new members were infor- mally initiated and welcomed into the troupe. A buffet dinner was enjoyed by candlelight later in the evening. The new members are: Catherine Code, Anna Mae Grubaugh, Nellie Austin, Do- lores Mitchell, Beatrice Campbell, Jack Carroll, Howard Moody and Jack Gorman. Our leading activity of the year has been to be represented in every possible field at the District Speech contest. Di- visions that we plan to participate in are: Dramatics, Extemporaneous S p e a k i n g, Verse Reading, Comedy Reading -and Seri- ous Reading. The Thespian organization is a non- secret, non-social gwroup. Anyone can be- come a member if he so desires and is able to meet the requirements. Eligibility for membership is based on a point sys- tem. This system awards points for work on committees in connection with produc- tion of plays, as well as actual acting in the plays. This dramatic society is ex- clusive in the sense that only those who are willing to work in the place best suited to them are the ones who success- fully attain the goal of Thespian member- ship. The true Thespian is willing to take his place back-stage, working with props or grease paint, as cheerfully and as capably as he would do his lines on the stage. He displays poise, good-sportsmanship, co- operation and industry. His life is an ex- ample of the club motto-"Act well your part: therein all the honor lies."

Q Our Honor Society is g branch of a na- tion-wide organization known as the Na- tional Honor Society of Secondary Schools. It gls a new club in Bradford high, formed lug, spring. Officers who were elected at at time: President, Jack Car- roll, vice-president, Ann Rees, secretary- treasurer, Dana Mannon. The group has not yet become active to any extent, but we hope lti will wield a strong and valu- able influence upon school life in the near future. The onlyn requirement for membership is an 11.5, or B average. When a student drops below this, he is automatically dropped from further membership. You cannot become a member until your soph- omore year, attaining only probationary membershlp then. This organization has 3 good influence since it presents students with a definite goal for the making and maintaining of a high scholastic -average. Membership is a real honor for g student because it shows that he is conscientious in his work and has the ability to retain -a higher than av- erage record.

Hampered by the loss of several letter- men, Coach Ed Wach was forced to use reserves to fill out the lost lettermen var- sity berths in the '45 grid season. The loss of Verne Smith, halfback, Bill Kelly, tackle, Bob Kidd, tackle, and "Ducky" Ault, quarter-back, who joined Navy after the '45 season, was felt very much as the season got underway. While only one victory was registered this year, this did not tell the tale of the hard battles the Panther gridders waged. In the season opener against Dunlap the Panthers came out the victor 7-6. Roy Ehnle broke loose over tackle and went 65 yards to pay dirt, John Lawson's accurate toe scored the winning point. Next, the Orange and Black traveled to Knoxville only to lose a hard one 19-0. In the Conference opener with Wethers- field, Bradford gave the Geese all they could handle in winning by a small mar- 58 gin of 6-0. Wethersfield recovered a fum- ble on Bradford's goal for line and then scored. The Panthers' offense bogged on the wet field and could not cross the ene- my's goal line. Bradford was beaten 12-0 by Walnut, who went unscored upon in seven con- tests to win the Blackhawk. Toulon de- feated Bradford 12-0, and Chillicothe was victor 19-6, Moody crossing the ,goal line to give Bradford their only score. Galva defeated Bradford on the for'mer's home field. Bradford lost a heart-breaker to Wyoming in the last game of the season. Wyoming scored on two long passes just before the half and late in the third quar- er. The Panthers will have good chances of a successful season with the return of many lettermen for the '46 season. The team will be light in certain departments but will not be lacking in fight.

With a succesful year behind us we are looking forward to an even better season this year. Our team is intact this year ex- cept for the loss of Verne Smith, Junior Ault, Bill Kelly and Bob Kidd. With the track team led by Benny Pet- tegrew, a fast dash man, we should run up quite a few points in the Stark Coun- ty and Blackhawk Track Meets. These two important events are to be held, Stark County, May 7, at LaFayette, and the Blackhawk Meet, May 14. There are also the Galva Relays which were held on April 26. In charge of the shot-put department this year will be Jim Cahill and Chester Grubaugh. Bernie McKean and Jim Mow- bray will be our milers. It is probable that Phil Code will handle the pole-vault- ing and high-jump along with Earl Haw- kins. Pettegrew, who won first in the 100-yard dash and second in the 220-yard dash at the Peoria District Meet, Scott, Ehnle and Philhower will be our capable relay men while Code, Scott and Moody will run the hurdles. Our 440-yard runner will be John Lawson. Under the leader- ship of Coach Wach we are out to exceed last year's record.

Qx i xy Rf SCIENCE Though the science classes are 'small the enthusiasm of the members more than compensates for this. Physics class has an enrollment of ten. Seven from the senior class, and three from the junior's. One lone girl braved the dangers H1 of Chemistry, along with two senior boys, five juniors and one sophomore. Experi- mentation is on the schedule three days each week, with the other two days de- voted to text book work. Mrs. Hanson capably guided the would- be scientists the first part of the year and Mrs. Luther finished the year's work. We have found the laboratory a fascinating place to spend spare time with an unend- ing array of experiments to capture our attention. These two subjects are much less- difficult than most students suspect though they can hardly be classed as snap courses either. They are never monoto- nous because the material covered varies from day to day. Since more boys and girls are enrolling in colleges every year the advantage of having some science tucked in among the things one has learned in high school becomes more ap- parent. Perhaps the Bradfordites are getting more serious lately too. At any rate there has been no revival of the "Mad Scien- tists", a. classic organization of other years. The science classes have proved pleasant and no one will regret the time spent. CALENDAR Aug. 29-School, books and brains are reopened today for the first time in three months. Question of the gay, "Where do we go from here?" Aug. 30--Newness still not worn off. In fact the Freshmen actually seem to be enjoying themselves: they'll learn. Aug. 31-The important task of getting acquainted with the new teachers is being undertaken by everybody. Acquaintances have also been made by several of the freshman girls. Sept. 3--Schedule now arranged to suit everybody. We really begin to work now, says Nelson. Sept. 5-Football squad swelters in mid-summer heat: you can actually see the pounds pouring off. Jay says, "Oh that this all too solid flesh would melt, etc." Solid? Sept. 7-The heat has finally' accom- plished some good! School is adjourned for the -afternoon.
