SENIOR CLASS RESUME by Harold Dailey:
When we consider that the colors of the class of 1918 are red,
white and blue, and its motto, "Loyalty, Purity and Truth," we
realize that this class is one hundred per cent American. The
class of '18 achieved honor in every department of student life.
Among her members are those that excel in scholastic attainment;
are those that have won fame for Shelbina High school on the
athletic field; are those that represented Shelbina High in
interscholastic debates; are those that triumphed over Hannibal;
are those that brought home the cups from Trenton; are those that
brought back the stock judging cup from Kirksville; are those
that put out the "Shelbinan"; play in the orchestra and sing in
The members of the class of '18 do things. Every member of the
class takes part in some activity; every boy in the class was out
for the class football team, and nine Senior boys received the
letter "S" in football. Two Senior girls were on the basketball
team of this year, and played on the championship team of last year.
Every four-minute man that has been selected this year has been a
Senior. There are four Seniors on the track team; three in debate
and two on the declamatory team.
We do not believe that the class of '18 is a slacker class. We
have had big things to do because big things were accomplished by
the classes that have gone before.
So, in leaving, the class of '18 pledges loyalty to Shelbina High
and will endeavor to maintain purity in their ideals, and knowing
that truth will prevail, will go out ready and willing to consecrate
themselves to the services of that greater red, white and blue that
stands for the salvation of civilization.
