Modern Job Department. VOL. XXXII, No. 46 THE CLEVELAND STAR, SHELBY, N. C. FRIDAY, JUNE 6, 1921. $2.00 A YEAR IN ADVANCE Graduating Class Of 55 Is New Record For Shelby School Diplomas Awarded 55 Regular Graduates, Nine Others, And 14 In Teacher Training—Eloquent Address By Dr. Bateman—Big Event In Local School History. Medals And Awards. Tuesday evening, 55 hoys and Kiris, radiant with the pride of achievement and the smile of earned success, march ed on the staKe at Central school, and off as a unit—forever. History now is the class of 1924, but in that brief span of time thundering applause from a packed auditorium and gallery greeted the largest graduating class in the history of the town. It was without doubt the greatest evening in ♦ he record of the local schools, the cheering of fellow students and the beaming eyes of parems and friends and faculty attest that. Fourteen stu dents of the teacher training depart ment were awarded cer'ificates and nine of the number also received high school diplomas, making a grand total of 78 types of splendid young manhood and womanhood placed on the marts of the world as the finished products of the Shelby high for 1924. The presentation of the coveted d; plomas, however, was only a part of the evening exercises, which were featured by a spurring address by Dr. R. J. Bateman, of Asheville, the class program and the awarding of medal and prizes. Class fcxercises. The filing in of the senior das , their last march into the halls they "have inhabited for 11 years, was the formal opening of the program, which was followed by the Anvil Chorus by the school glee club. The address of welcome to the faculty, fellow stu dents, and the great throng of rela tives and admirers was by Johrv Proc tor McKnight. the alert youngster selected by his many clasmates as their president," and the address if nothing more was the reward for their selection. This was followed by the class history, the ioys and sorrows of 11 years in the school room and four years in high school, by Alpha Gettys, an honor student and a medal winner. The last will and testament, the offi cial document of departure of the class of ’2-1, was by Selma Greene, winner of the Dover Bible medal. The prophecy, an entertaining dream that told of the fortune 20 years hence of the 55 boys and girls, was by Minnie Eddins Roberts, another honor stu dent. “Pickaninny Lullaby” by the glee club was the conclusion of the class exercises, and thereafter the class was honored instead of honor ing. “How Set Your Sail.” “How* Set Your Sail?” was the keynote of a fervent address by Dr. R J. Bateman, of Asheville, that urged and spurred onward that honored group of boys and girls, and beseech ed them to begin painting today their setting sun of tomorrow. “How hold your helm” was the question hurled at them as he informed them that their hereafter was in their own hands and their future a matter of their own making. Inspiring and impelling at times was the exhortation to the class, and vivid and imaginative at others as the speaker depicted what might be, and how. In opening the Asheville pastor paid a glowing tribute to Car olina and the Southland, the stability of citizenship and the blood that is less than one per cent foreign. “The world of tomorrow depends on the Southland and such as you, products of a noble heritage. In all my love and fidelity of the South I have no apolo gies to make nor a single regret at being a native of the gallant Dixie.” Dr. Bateman made a withering reply to the writer who in discussing presidential possibilities eliminated one after another every souj,bernei because he is a native of the South. “Should the writer review his his tory he will find that the greatest of our presidents have been southerners, not a few, but each and every one of the greatest. The two most outstand ing figures in American history were Southerners,” and with the linking together of Lincoln and Wilson the speaker drew enthusiastic applause. “Lincoln on both sides was of Geor gian blood and our Woodrow Wilson is, and will be, the greatest of the South’s noble sons.” ^ “My question of ‘Whither goest Thou?’ will be determined by you and none other. Life is before you, make of it what you will, but it is with you alone to make. The boy or girl among you that has in him or her the ‘natur al stuff’ the ability to fight and go forward and accept achievement as reward, is the one on whom I will stake my bets. Some may inherit the wealth and position made by another, but I warn you it will be the one who has the ‘stuff’ in him, not around him, that will win. Set your star and climb.! Nothing can stop you. Forty years j from now the lives that now lie before you will be almost an open book and! complete. What you will to be nowj is what you will bo then." Presentation of Diplomas. Following the address the diplomas were presented to the graduates by Prof. J. H. Grigs:, principal of the school, as the names were announced by Superintendent Griffin. And in turn certificates were given the grad uates of the teacher training depart ment. Those receiving dinlomas were: ( lass of 1924. Ruth Allf'n, Eva Allen, Hugh Ar rowood, Sarah Austell.

Topping the list of medal and prize winners were the “Hundred Per Cent” boy and girl—Hugh Arrowood and Alpha Gettys. No one thing won for them the Washburn cups, the most coveted emblems of the school, but many things, and from the applause that rocked the building (luring the presentation popularity must have been among the many. The cup awarded Hugh Arrowood was offered to the boy with the best record in scholarship, conduct and athletics, and the boy who won was an honor grad uate, neither absent nor tardy during the year and a star on two ’varsity athletic teams .and apparently the reigning favorite of his fellow stu dents from the wild cheering that fol lowed the presentation. The other cup won by Alpha Gettys was for the best all-around girl in high school, judged cn the basis of scholarship and con duct, and the winner was also an honor graduate of the class of ’24. Her honor was closely followed by another in the presentation to her of the essayist medal given by Lee B. Weathers, editor of The Cleveland Star.

Recently in the extension of the program of the State Young Men’s Christian Association a banquet was held here, at which time Shelby pledg ed her quota of the amount necessary for a “Y” secretary for this district, which is composed of surrounding towns where there are no Y. M. C. A. buildings and organization. The fol lowing letter from J. Wilson Smith, state secretary, informs how the pro gram is progressing: “We are writing to report the progress which has been made in the extension of the program of the State Young Men’s Christian Asso ciation in the Western District. The following towns have contributed to the support of a District Secretary: Goal Secured Lincolnton $ 500 $195.50 Statesville 1000 - 655.50 Hickory 800 807.50 Morganton 500 575.00 Shelby 500 537.50 One more city, Mooresvill?, re mains to be canvassed and the cycle will be complete. In addition, it is the plan to carry on a program in the .'.mailer towns, like Cherryville and Newton, where the remainder of the budget will be secured. We are now looking for a capahli secretary who will devote his energies to the development of the Boys’ Work in your territory. Ln the meantime before the new secretary' arrives, Mr .! T. Fesperman, State Boys’ Work Secretary, has been giving a gener ous portion of his time to this work. Mr. Fesperman recently conducted a one-day "Come Clean Campaign” at Hickory and Lincolnton. Eighty-four boys at Hickory and forty-nine a; Lincolnton signed the "Come Clean' cards. The school commencement a*. Statesville prevented the promotion of this program at that place. At Morganton, we secured a strong speaker for a Fathers ^Meeting, and several sex hygiene talks in the school. We will have the plan well worked out by the opening of the next school season, and we expect to be in full swing early in September.” Women Voters Are Supporting Logan We, the undersigned lady voters of No. 9 would like to say a few words for our present sheriff. If anyone will go to the records they will find there has been more stills captured more cars confiscated, and more rum runners convicted within the last 5 years than ever before in the history of the county. Several years ago officers could go to the mountains and capture three or four stills in one day. Now they can search all day and not find a single still, Why? Because they are about all gone. We think Sheriff Logan and his deputies have done more to wipe out the liquor business than any past sheriff has ever done. So if the moth ers really want tq help enforce pro hibition, they will make no mistake by voting for Sheriff Logan. MRS. J. A. TILLMAN, MRS. A. G. HIGGINS, MRS. C. R. DIXON. MRS. R. F. STAMEY, MRS.
