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-
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.
