Two Dedication One of the most interesting and congenial per- sonalities we have ever known is one who has been a mem- ber of the faculty for twenty-one years and has done much for our high school. She is highly respected by all who know her. Hundreds of students have studied under her care and guidance and are proud to have had the privilege of being her students. All appreciate the persistence, perseverance, tactfulness, knowledge, and understanding which char- acterize her work. In gratitude for all she has done and what she means to Bradford Township High School-to Miss Sallie Vanzant we dedicate the Sixteenth Volume of the Brad- onian. FOUI' Board oi Education R. L.

Class of '47 .M I Seventeen Zin illlemnriam JOHN GENZEL senior Class Histor The Class of '47 entered Bradford High School August 25, 1943, with an enroll- ment of thirty-seven students. During the year we lost two boys, Ronald Behnke and Darrell Hanchett, but we added John Campbell to the roll. There was the usual confu- sion of getting into the wrong classes and having schedules revised, but the "Green Freshmen" came through, none the worse for the troubles each new class must go through. Our sponsors for the first two years were Miss McElwain and Mr. Taylor. A great deal was contributed to the school by the Freshmen, as many girls took part in Chorus, Home Economics Club, and other extra-curricular activities. The boys held their part in the balance byiparticipating in football, basketball, and track. The dra- matic and other abilities of the class were shown by their being included in the var- ious activities. The Freshman float won first place at Homecoming. The second year found the class, as Sophomores, ranking the highest in the school as to enrollment. There were still thirty-seven members. The boys who had worked so hard in athletics gained credit, as three earned their letters that year. New honors were won in the dramatic field by four members of the class being admitted to the honorary society of Thespians. We were again represented in the music contest. A big event of the year was the sponsoring of the Christmas party which was a very great success. As Jolly Juniors the group decreased in number to thirty-two. Pat Tilson was lost through transfer and Bob Chasteen was added at the end of the first semester. Our sponsors were Miss Wetzel and Mr. Terwilliger. In addition to regular activities, the girls' basketball team was very successful. The activity which the class deserves the most credit for was the sponsoring of the Junior-Senior Prom which proved a suc- cess. They also produced a play, "Sing for Your Supper." During the course of the year, the group was saddened by the tragic death of one of their number, John Genzel. He had been successful in shop work and, needless to say, his empty chair cast a shadow over the class which will not soon be brushed aside. When the last year at B.H.S. rolled around, noone could realize that he was graduating. Much was contributed to band, dramatics, football, and basketball by the class. The play, "It's Papa Who Pays," was a real success. Aided by Miss Vanzant and Mr. Hanson, a large sum of money for the traditional Chicago trip was made by selling candy, pop, and various other things. We of the Senior Class wish to express our thanks to all who helped to make possible our four happy years at B.H.S. Nineteen Row 3: David Malone.

Junior This year the Junior Class has lived up to the long-standing name of "Jolly Juniors." They are proudly wearing their new class rings which proves that they have passed from the stage of being "Green Freshies" and "Silly Sophomoresf' The class is composed of twelve girls and thirteen boys who have participated in all school activ- ities and have done their share of work. We are glad to welcome a new student, James Mitchell, who came to us from Moline. The officers are: President, David Malone, Vice-President, Don Cookg Secretary, Lois Real g Treasurer, Sherry Graham, and Student Council, Marjorie Reed and Dale Nelson. The Juniors are interested in sports and have nine members entered in foot- ball, basketball, and track. The co-captains for football next year are Phil Code and David Malone. Many members are entered in band and chorus. They also hold a large share of the offices in F.F.A., F.H.A., G.A.A., and Thespians. The Juniors have con- tributed to their treasury by way of a chili luncheon, a play, and a benefit movie. Our class advisers are Miss Miller, Mr. Leeson, and Mr. Arthur. They have proved helpful throughout the year and we appreciate their leadership. We are looking forward to next year being as successful as this has been.

Only- two did not return from last year but during this year, Louise Heneger and Bill Hufnagel discontinued school work. The class officers are: President, J. E. Terwilligerg Vice-President, Bill Green, Secretary, Muriel Campbell, Treasurer, Danny Driscoll, and Student Council, Edythe Eble and John Barto. Our Homecoming Queen and King, Barbara Carroll and Bill Green, ranked sec- ond. The Carnival Queen and King, Edythe Eble and Danny Driscoll, took first place. The boys traveling squad of the basketball and football teams included Don Kelly, Gene Craig, J. E. Terwilliger, Jerry Hickey, Bob Mowbray, Danny Driscoll, and Bill Green. The first four of these were lettermen. The Ensemble members were Ruthe Linden, Donna Dally, Pat Ryan, and Caroline Rees. Doreen Ringenberg was cheerleader. Miss Gardner and Mr. Terwilliger, our class advisers, were a great help to us in our school activities.

Fre hmen The Freshman Class entered school on August 26, 1946. After managing to live through the initiation ceremony, we went on to hang up a record which the class of next year Will have a difficult time to equal or surpass. With the help of our advisers, Coach Mursener and Miss Williams, we sponsored a Fall Dance and the annual party on St. Valentine's Day. Our float at the Homecoming won third prize. It represented the sky with the name of a player on each of the stars. From each star an orange or black streamer extended to the Wagon. The legend was 'fHitch Your Wagon to a Star." In a magazine campaign early in the year, We beat the Sophomores, adding S103 to our treasury. As a result, they entertained us with a party. We found it the easiest money-making project of the year and hope to have another try at it next year. At the first meeting of our class we elected the following officers: President, Bob Murphyg Vice-President, Betty Realg Secretary-Treasurer, Jack Craigg and Stu- dent Council, Nancy Terwilliger and Dean Carroll. Our class was ably represented in athletics. Thirteen boys were out for football, eight for basketball, and eleven for track. In addition to athletics, we had representa- tives in practically all extra-curricular activities. Twenty-two jim, Bzzadoman, P' dx 4 N1 WS 1947 'F .u W" V X v X, 4'K",'Q ix L- Tiff ,.

They are: President, Jay Hickey, Secretary, Delores Mitchell, Seniors, J0- anne Hickey and Bob Driscoll, Juniors, Marjorie Reed and Dale Nelsong Sophomores, Edythe Eble and John Bartog and Freshmen, Nancy Terwilliger and Dean Carroll. The organization is under the supervision of Mr. Hanson. Two of the major works of the Council this year were the planning of Home- coming on November 1 and Big Brother and Sister Day which was held in April. Four of the members attended the district convention which was held in Ke- wanee on November 12 and hope to attend the state convention in Chicago.

In addition to these, a member of each club was asked to write an article about the work which had been done this year. Money was earned for the publication of the Bradonian through donations from each class and club, through advertisements, and by the sale of the yearbooks by the business managers. A The engraving was done by the Galesburg Engraving Company, Galesburg, Illinois, and the printing by The Times Record, Aledo, Illinois.

At any hour of the school day you may go in and have an enjoyable time among the many interesting books found there. True, to some people it is only a place where many shelves are overburdened with books, but to those who enter its door seeking help and pleasure, it is a place of vast interest. It is a comfort to know that when you are as- signed a term paper or other work Where much outside information is needed, you have free access to the library's many books. Miss Vanzant is librarian and many extra hours of her time are devoted to the library's success. Seven students assist her by charging books, keeping books on the shelves in their proper places, helping students to find the desired information, and keeping general order in the room. So far, about fifty new books have been added this year to our already extensive collection. Among the most popular of these are: "Sports Extra," "Short Leash," "Son of Thunder," and "Patriot in the Saddle." A valuable addition to the library is the Abridged Readers' Guide by which articles may be located in our many magazines. A new set of the Americana Encyclopedia, a Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, and a re- volving dictionary stand have also been purchased. ' Every year our library is becoming better and it is our hope that the time may soon come when a larger room will be available for its store of knowledge. Twenty-Seven Row il: Bernie Cahill. J. Fl.

National Honor ooioty The Bradford Chapter of the National Honor Society, now in its third year, has its largest membership since being chartered in 1945. The objectives of this chapter are to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in the pupils of Bradford High School. Membership in the National Honor Society is based on scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Candidates must have spent at least one semester in Brad- ford High School, and shall be a member of the Sophomore, Junior, or Senior Class. Sophomore members are known as probationary members, having voice and vote in the chapter, but may not hold office. Scholastic standards for membership require candidates to possess an average of 11.5 for all time spent in high school. At any time that a member's scholastic aver- age drops below this point, he is automatically dropped from the chapter until such time as his average is up to, or above the required level. Officers for the current year are: President, Benny Pettegrewg Vice-President, Lois Real, Secretary-Treasurer, Bonny Jean Reinbeckg Faculty Sponsor, Mr. Leeson. New members to be initiated this year are the following: Muriel Campbell, Ruthe Linden, Caroline Rees, Jim Gill, Donna Dally, Jerry Hickey, J. E. Terwilliger, Edythe Eble, Genevieve Van Ostrand, Helen Doty, Bernie Cahill, Bob Lee, and Kay Tumbleson. Twenty-eight Row 2: Phil Voile, Jzly llivkvy. Pete Gormzlii.

With Mr. Hanson as instructor, the class delves into the theories and secrets of physical matter and tries to test the conclusions by experiment. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays the students work in the laboratory. The experi- mental part of the subject is most fascinating because it takes real ingenuity to devise just the right experiment to test a theory. Physics has to do with the common things around us which may be conveniently separated into five divisions. They are: mechanics, heat, electricity, sound, and light. The object in studying physics is to learn to think accurately about familiar things and to base theories on experiments performed in the laboratory. To many, physics appears to be a difficult course but to those who truly under- stand the subject, it furnishes a practical knowledge which is not only useful in every- day Work but can be used to good advantage in later life.

Commercial Department The Commercial Department this year is made up of three courses: Typing I and Commercial Law, Typing and Shorthand II, and Bookkeeping. The Typing I class terminated at the end of the first semester, and by that time the average student could type twenty-five words per minute. They learned the parts of the machine, the fundamentals of typing, and the application of the fundamentals to their own personal typing problems. At the beginning of the second semester, Com- mercial Law, a subject dealing with everyday laws, began with an enrollment of thirty students. In Bookkeeping the students learned the principles of the bookkeeping cycle, how to make and keep personal ledgers, and many other useful and practical things. Through the use of a practice set, they had an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the problems of a bookkeeper in a real-life business situation. Typing and Shorthand II class consists of eight girls who have been learning how to cut stencils and the use of the Mimeograph and Ditto Machines. They are rap- idly improving their shorthand and typing speed. Mr. Thomas Leeson is the capable commercial teacher and is well liked and re- spected by all his students.

Paper tafi This year Bradford High School has maintained two paper staffs instead of only one. At the beginning of the year, Miss Williams was chosen as sponsor of the "B.H.S. Highlights," our column in "The Bradford Republican." The staff includes Anna Mae Grubaugh, Editor g Mary Jean Forbes and Marjorie Lea Reed, Assistant Editors, and Ben Pettegrew, Sports Editor. Later on in the first semester we decided to experiment with the possibilities of a school paper. The first issue was christened "The Panther Patteringsu and has re- mained so. The paper was to be published every month by the same members of the "Highlights" staff with the addition of several other members including the following: Cleo Dixon, Celestine Stotler, Bob Lee, Delores Mitchell, and Phyllis Tumbleson. The "Panther Patteringsn was sent to our students who were in the hospital, to other schools, to the teachers, and was sold to our own students. We hope that the school paper will continue to grow in future years to become a permanent feature of our high school. Thirty-one Row 5. Theresa Calhoun, Gertrude McKean, Betty Real.

Girl ' Choru The Girls' Chorus of Bradford High School is an organization of sixty-two mem- bers. The membership is voluntary and every girl in school has the opportunity to join it. The first public performance this year was the participation in a mid-season concert presented by the Music Department on December 19. At the opening of the second semester eighteen girls were chosen from the organization to form the Festival Chorus. This group participated in the Blackhawk Chorus Festival at Wethersfield on April 11. This is an annual event and is composed of eighteen girls and eighteen boys from each of the seven schools in the Conference. On March 29 several members of the Chorus participated in the District Competitive Festival held at Woodruff High School in Peoria.

Girls' En emble The Girls' Ensemble is composed of a group of seven girls from the Bradford High School Girls' Chorus. It was organized primarily for the purpose of providing a small musical organization that might perform at various civic activities in the com- munity. Because of its success it has become a regular and accepted part of the Music Department. In the course of the year the Ensemble has performed for several of the com- munity organizations as well as furnishing entertainment for school activities. On March 29, the organization entered the District Music Competitive Festival which was conducted at Woodruff High School in Peoria. During the Blackhawk Music Festival conducted at Wethersfield, the Ensemble presented a special number. Each school of the conference, in addition to sending students to the Festival Chorus, pre- sented an individual musical number. The closing activity for the Ensemble was High School Commencement at which time it presented two numbers. Thirty-three Row 4: llarbara Lum-ke, Mr. Arthur, director: Loren VVright. Jim Gill.

Band The Bradford High School Band, an organization which has fifty-four members, has made considerable improvement this year. Among the many contributing factors were the rehearsals held during the summer prior to the opening of the school year. The activities of the band were many and varied. Included in its program were a trip to the State Fair, a concert at the Williamsfield Homecoming, participation in the Bradford American Legion Homecoming, and a trip to the Western Illinois State Teach- ers' Homecoming where it participated in the parade along with about fifteen other high school bands. In addition to its programs away from Bradford, the band presented two formal concerts at the high school. One of these was a joint program with the chorus on the night of December 19 and the other was on May 6. The band's traditional duties consisted of programs at the Blackhawk Confer- ence football and basketball games, participation in the Illinois High School Associa- tion's Competitive Festival, and joint participation with the other bands of the con- ference at the Blackhawk Conference Music Festival held at Galva.

The pian The Thespian Troupe 139 of 1946-47 under the sponsorship of Miss Williams was quite small until our initiation which was held January 30 in the gymnasium. The candlelight service followed a potluck supper. The eleven initiates included Maxine Scott, Caroline Rees, John Campbell, Betty Jean Scott, David Malone, Don Cook, Bernie Mc- Kean, Marilyn Emmons, Celestine Stotler, Ruthe Linden, and Robert Chasteen. For Thespian membership a student must accumulate ten points of theatrical work which may be earned in a variety of ways. The value of every job connected with play production is recognized by the Thespians who award points for all kinds of work in the theater. This is one way that the organization can give due recognition to the unseen workers of a play as well as to those who face the footlights. After a student has earned the required number of points, his name is brought before the Troupe for consideration of his membership. Each member, upon being received into the club, pays 31.50 which entitles him to life-time membership. Each year the Thespians go to drama contests which are held in various towns. One may enter in divisions designated as Serious Reading, Comedy Reading, Original Oration, Verse Reading, and Extempore Speaking. Schools compete with each other in producing one-act plays. This year the Thespian Troupe produced the one-act play, "The Lord's Prayer" by Francois Coppee. Individual contest entries were made by Bonny Reinbeck, Bernie Cahill, Caroline Rees, and Betty Jean Scott. Thirty-five Row 2: Robert Pliastvi-ii, Bernie Cahill, Rob Driscoll, Jay Hickey.

This three-act farce concerned the problems which arise in the Denny household over contests. Contests are against his principles-he'll have no more of them-and then he Wins a car in a contest he had forgotten he'd entered! To keep the family from finding out, Papa fibs a bit. He tells them he has bought a car with money from a brother who repaid a loan. Then the brother appears. To make matters worse it develops that Papa hasn't won first prize but only the second prize-a wolfhound. Papa is egged on to bigger and better lies by his friend, Mr. Fixer-who fixes every- thing. Everything eventually rights itself, but not before many trying situations have presented themselves for solution. Thirty- it Row 25 Bernir- Cahill, llvrnie lvlcliezrrr, Jack Rinkvnberger, Don Cook.

The play was also presented as part of a St. Patrick's Day program at St. John's Hall on the seventeenth of March. 1 'rev ur, This one-act play was a serious drama which portrayed vividly the power of for- giveness in a woman's life. The story is about Mademoiselle Rose, a single woman of thirty-eight, who has devoted herself to the care of her brother who was a priest. When her brother was unjustly murdered by a revolutionary group of Paris, Mademoiselle Rose suffered great mental anguish with the result that her faith was severely shaken. When the opportunity came for her to save a fugitive's life by disguising him in her late brother's robes, she impulsively seized upon the chance and thus restored her faith in God and man. The cast of the play included Bonny Reinbeck, Theresa Calhoun, Anna Mae Gru- baugh, John Campbell, Bernie Cahill, Jay Hickey, Bernie McKean, Jack Rinkenberger, and Don Cook.

Homemaking Department In September the junior and senior homemaking classes were busy preserving a number of foods to be used in classwork throughout the year. They prepared peaches, tomatoes, beans, pears, and plums. Each of the four classes spend some time during the year on the following main divisions of the homemaking program. The first division is foods and nutrition, which includes laboratory experiences where complete meals are prepared and served for a group of six to eight students. Clothing selection and construction constitute the second division which involves the actual sewing of garments as well as the stressing of principles of good grooming. This year the freshman class made white pinafores. Among the sophomore class mem- bers a variety of garments were made including dresses, skirts, jumpers, and suits. A unit in home management is designed for the purpose of enabling students to make better use of available materials, while a similar unit in home planning is de- signed to aid the students in making best use of their time. Child development, family relationships, and personal and social relationships are additional units. Throughout the year the girls have helped to provide an interesting bulletin board to help emphasize their classwork. In the kitchen they have made improvements by painting, refinishing furniture, and reorganizing the equipment into three units.

The officers are as follows: President, Maxine Scott, Vice-President, Edythe Ebleg Secretary, Celestine Stotlerg Treasurer, Pat Ryang Reporter, Caroline Rees. Mrs. George Eble is our Chapter Mother for the year and Miss Mae .I, Miller is our sponsor. Maxine Scott and Celestine Stotler attended the F.H.A. Camp at Lake Bloomington last sum- mer. They spent most of their time in discussions on how to better their club and home lives. The F.H.A. has done much this year to make money and also for their own pleasure. They served dinner to a group of agriculture teachers from this districtg the Blackhawk Conference coaches and principals were served a fish supperg they assisted in the serving of a Christmas dinner put on by the students of B.H.S. They also served a chili supper to the Community Club and a lunch to the basketball boys during the county tournament. They took part with the G.A.A. and F.F.A. in making the carnival the success that it was. A style show was put on at a meeting of the Parents' Organization in which the girls modeled garments they had made during the year. As a Christmas project the Freshman girls made gifts and prepared Christmas boxes for nineteen children in the Guardian Angel Home in Peoria. To honor the mothers of our club members a Valentine's tea was given. Thirty-nine Row 3: Harry Staley, Stanley Albrecht, Max Scott, Dale Nelson. lmn l,J1'ism-oil, Phil Code.

The Girls' Athletic Association is a national organization of high school girls enrolled in phy- sical education classes. The club has been very active this year under the capable leadership of Miss Gardner. The officers are: President, Edythe Ebleg Vice-President, Pauline Sturmg Secretary, Marjorie Reedg and Treasurer, Lois Real. At the beginning of the year the club sponsored an out-of-doors breakfast for the members. Eight of the girls attended a Play Day at Annawan on October 26 and a similar event was held here on February 1. Each year two girls are sent to camp and this year's candidates are Sherry Graham and Edythe Eble. Members of this organization may win awards for keeping health rules and from outside sports, each of which gives them points. The first two awards are given by the local club and may be the school letter or numerals. The other two awards are given by the state. The first is a large blue and white letter "I" and the second is a blue and white letter in the form of the state of Illinois. We consider these awards worth working for and hope to make our organization larger and more active next year. Forty-one AW gm-ss jim, Hnadoman, ,S 1 Q08 Sv 1947 . W , m..

Ba ketball Coaches Jim Mursener and Tom Leeson started the basketball season with eight teams reporting for practice. From this group, four teams were selected which made up the Varsity and Reserve Squads. With only four lettermen, Phil Code, Dale Delson, David Malone, and Jerry Hickey, returning from last year, the Varsity Squad lacked experience. However, as the season progressed the team took on better form and downed Toulon 41 to 34 and Wyoming 38 to 31 and won the Stark County Championship which was held at Bradford. In the Princeville Tourney the Panthers were downed by Chillicothe in the pre- liminary tilt, 34 to 24. In the Galva Invitational Tourney Bradford edged out Walnut 34 to 33 and was beaten by Oneida 64 to 19 who won won the tournament over Weth- ersfield by a score of 69 to 29. The strong Galva quint stopped the locals 27 to 19 in the consolation finals. Bernie Cahill and Bob Driscoll will be lost this year through graduation. How- ever, the usual starting five will remain intact and should make a good showing next SQHSOH. Forty- X 'wi Row ii: Bill Green, Donald Fuss. Imlizlld Gruhzun.

Track The track squad of Bradford High School claimed all their victories last season by winning the Blackhawk Conference Championship. After threatening in one big meet after another only to fall behind by a few points in the closing events, the Bradford team finally came through to win Bradford's first conference track championship in twenty years of competition. Bradford's most serious rival in the meet was Galva who scored 45143 points while Bradford came through with 53 points. Fifteen men coached by Ed Wach took the honors for Bradford and brought home the Blackhawk trophy. They were: Captain Earl Hawkins, Howard Moody, Roy Ehnle, Jim Cahill, Don Philhower, Chester Gru- baugh, Jim Mowbray, Ben Pettegrew, Bob Lee, Dave Malone, Bernie McKean, Phil Code, Don Cook, Gene Craig, and Jerry Hickey. The last nine of these are back this year to try to duplicate last year's performance. In the district track and field meet held at Peoria, Bradford placed in three events. Earl Hawkins took fifth place in the high hurdles and Ben Pettegrew placed second in the 100-yard and first in the 220-yard dashes. Eugene Craig, freshman sprint- er, was nosed out of fifth place honors in the 440-yard dash but turned in a commend- able performance for a lone freshman in this event. Forty-eight Ben Pettegrew, David Malone, Eugene Craig, Bob Lee. Frosh-Soph Relay Team The Bradford Frosh-Soph relay team of '46 consisted of the sophomores, Bob Lee, Dooz Malone, Ben Pettegrew, and one lone freshman, "Conk" Craig. Besides breaking four records they were always on hand at every track meet to make their share of points. In the individual events, each of the team members made good showings also. In the 100- and 220-yard dashes, Bob Lee and Ben Pettegrew showed their best. Gene Craig made some commendable performances in the 440-yard sprint and also pole vaulted. Malone specialized in the 880-yard run and the low hurdles and vaulted too. 1946 1946 1946 1946 The records this team made are: -Blackhawk Conference Meet-880-yard relay New record: 1:39.55 old 1:43.4 by Toulon in 1944 -Geneseo Relays-440-yard relay New record: 48.35 old 48.4 by Toulon in 1940 -Stark County Meet-880-yard relay New record: 1:38.45 old 1241.2 by Toulon in 1944 -Galva Invitational Relays-880-yard relay New record: 1:41.2g old 1:42.4.

Football The Panther's gridiron squad, rebounding from two successive poor seasons, came up with a commendable record this year by Winning four and losing the same number. With forty-eight candidates reporting, nine of whom were lettermen, Coach Jim Mursener set about the task of building a winning combination. The first game of the season was a heart-breaker since Dunlap won 2-0 when a punt was blocked behind the goal in the last quarter. The following week While playing at home under the lights for the first time, a 14-7 win was registered against Knox- ville which was climaxed by a 60-yard run by Halfback Malone. The next two games were lost by the small margins of 12-7 and 6-0 to Wethersfield and Walnut respectively. The age-old rival, Toulon, was downed by the Panthers in a hard-fought 19-7 game on the former's home field. Traveling to Princeville the team came home with a 32-6 score against an inexperienced team which was playing its first year of football. Bradford suffered its fourth loss at the hands of Galva 14-0. A successful season and B. H. S. Homecoming were climaxed by drubbing Wyoming 13-0.
