CLASS POEM OF 1914
GLADYS NANETTE1 MARTIN
As sweeping tides of oceans surge in from the misty deep
And linger there along the shores before they outward creep.
Leaving traces on the sands to tell of their short stay,
Marks they stamp which though dim, abide to eternal day.
So there are human tides, dear friends, which flow to every shore,
They, on the sands of time, rise high and then ebb out once more.
And thus it i with us, classmates, whose live3 have led this way,
We gather on the shores of life to work, to laugh, and play.
Creeping tides from out the deep roll in, and just so we
Mingle with cares of life, then back to the boundless sea.
But let us leave some priceless gift to man before we part,
Some word or smile or golden deed, to cheer some lonely heart.
Attracted by the white-capped waves, Ambition in their roar.
One throws himself into the spray of earth's great reservoir.
Heeding not the rugged rocks 'gainst which they dash and break;
Blindly yielding to that voice which calls a course to take.
Though rough it be, conquer that wave, plunge on with strength of soul,
Let not the obstacles of life make shipwreck of your goal.

To see them only break as foam upon the pebbly beach.

Calm, deceiving, there she lies beneath the golden sun.
Oh, let U3 not be as the froth at sea upon the crest.
But strive to be and not to seem and leave to God the rest.

Theo stepped one glad morning in her little creaking shoe,
Every morn came happy Theo, through the rain, and through the dew,
Bringing with her the glad, sweet music of her little creaking shoe.
On and on climbed happy Theo 'till she reached the seventh round
Of this jeweled ladder where we all our skirts let down
Our tangled tresses tightly braided now we reached another round
All but Theo.
Would she braid those golden tresses, while her hair she yet could bob?
Would she lengthen her short dresses, would she? No, though we
Our loud entreaties all in vain, our implorings all for naught,
Knowledge only filled her brain, independence was all she sought.
From the ladder's lowest round came two maidens fair to see
Both of them by name Gladys, both of them so .blithe and free,
Day by day we've watched them closely as we've journeyed right along,
Gladys, with the golden tresses; Gladys, with the love for song.
Steadily they have climbed each round, each vieing with the other.
In their many lovely virtues all wrong thoughts and deeds to
Gladys with the dark brown hair, the land of music in her choice,
' Gloomy days she has made more fair by the magic of her voice.
And Gladys Wallis' sunny smile has cheered us these twelve years thru,
Not soon shall we forget this friend, ever faithful, .kind and true,
"Now at this portal thou dost stand, and with small, but kindly hand,
V Dost ope the mysterious gate into the future's undiscovered land."
Yet scarcely would I be complete in chanting of this ode,
Did I not forthwith here explain that this same girl is pigeon-toed.
This same year of 1902, well remembered by us all,
Sent to us a boy companion, who had fears of study hall.
One fault only he possessed, his great height mismatched his desk
How his useless hands he folded, his long limbs were such a pest.
His tall form seemed scarcely moulded for the seat where he did rest,
Carlton's ears were trained for music, but for Latin, never. No,
How he studied, how he pondered, 'twas of no avail we know,
But to Nellie Beckham's desk we now-see him creeping, creeping
Her kind help imploring, and his Latin translation seeking.
Did he get it, Ah yes, ever; no secrets I am telling.
Or no news am I now giving, when I say before you all,
That Nellie was quite willing to help this boy so straight and tall.
Now again upon this ladder, born with purpose to advance,
Steps our Rexie, grave and thoughtful, never with a backward glance,
Rund by round she climbed this ladder, till we introduce this lass
To you all as the book-worm of this year's graduating class.
Guided by the hand so kind, of Miss Clark, a teacher dear,
The second round we left behind and entered on our third grand year,
Thus we studied, thus labored, and gained our fourth round without fear,
Then came a maiden fair and slender upon one sunnymorn,
Joined us in the same glad year of the reign of our Miss Carn,
What a worthy climber she, laughing at each dire disaster
Nothing daunted, on she went, climbing onward faster,
As she wrestled with her science, with her math, and with her history
Climbing e'er upward, faster as she solved each new-found mystery
Nellie Beckham -as you see her is this modest maiden's name,
And by deep and earnest effort she at last has reached her aim.
Bedecked with gayest of flowers, the long sweet years glide on,
As with effort we climbed the fifth round of our ladder so strong.
Then there came to us upon the way a maiden young and fair,
With the merry twinkle in her bright eye, and ringlets in her hair.
The present held for her no fears, the future gleamed with hope,
And since she did her best, dear friends, I bow to Annie Pope;
While climbing up the ladder she has daily grown in beauty,
Has ever on the way fulfilled with cheerfulness each duty.
"So like the swell of some -sweet tune, morning rises into noon,
May glides onward into June, thus our fifth year did pass so soon
Childhood is the bough where slumbered birds and blossoms many num numbered,"
bered," numbered," So while we gathered up, our blossoms ,and watched them as they grew
There came to us another maiden, and asked to join our crew.
Of all the blossoms we had gathered on this jewel-studded round,
Not a fairer, purer blossom than our Alice had we found.
She it is whose heart is golden, with our love she now is crowned,
And our Alice climbing upward on this ladder of renown,
Had a sad and serious accident as she played around,
ment and betterment of mankind.
Let then our land of the Stars and
Stripes, whicn during the nineteenth
century was an emblem of liberty to
all the world, be in the twentieth,

and proud nations, "Shall beat their
swords into plow shares, and their
spears into pruning hooks, when
nation shall not lift up sword against

How we pitied our poor Alice, as everybody knows.
While she played one day at basket ball, she fell and broke her nose;
She now went to Dr. Dozier, and to him poured forth her woes.
Then he plastered, and he doctored, and he straightened out the blows
Now I can to you explain, away hath fled all signs of pala.
And playing still at basket ball, Alice has not yet been slain.
Gone is every thought of trouble, gone are all her cares and woes.
And now just as good as ever 13 this darling little nose.

"To be rather than to seem," her motto, this our guiding star.
Which made our path of duty brighter, and shed its gleam, afar.
Now day by day our ladder, with timber fashioned strong and true,
Till framed with perfect symmetry the high school came to our view.
Sublime now our high school visions loomed aloft and shadowy glowed.
Regrets for leaving friends we love, now both joy and pain on flowed.
Now how proudly we clung as after many a year at length,
(Every hour with us well spent), our ladder had grown in form and
If the Interest in our lessons languished just a little here.
If the anger of great teachers did not rouse in us great fear.
Kind friends and fellow citizens, can you blame ns scarce at all.
For making this commotion over a boy named Homer Small?
For he had reached our ladder, and his energies he did bend
To beat us all in the climbing to .this great and noble end.
And let me explain to you, It takes a grand good fight
It takes some hard, true studying and working with your might
To keep upon the golden ladder, and not expect to fall.
When you are working by the side of a boy named Homer Small
Then here was our class increased by a maid entering the High School,
Lorayne Kemp who helped us faithfully to keep each day the role,
A most reserved and quiet maiden she journeying apart
Though helping always when she could, in the goodness of her heart.
Then with what joy and glad surprise, no artist's pen can portray,
When another lad appeared, gave his name as Robert McKay.
This friend of our adoption tried, has proved he has greater worth.
Than many other boys of his age not blessed with fun and mirth.
Robert so manly, true, and strong, never cries when he can sing,
We have' learned to try his rule, and laugh like him at everything.
Scarce would be this ode complete, without mention of one maiden.
With whom I am quite familiar, she this ladder too did laden,
She has ever journeyed with me, ever journeyed by my side.
And I am not ashamed to say that in her I felt great pride
That she has at least been able up the ladder thus to follow
For you've read the little story that all children's heads are hollow?
Often times has Wynona felt was this legend true of her,
As with t hygiene and history, and with astromomic mystery
Algebra and' geometry, latin and trigonometry, she has rammed it in and
crammed it in
And still her head is hollow.
Filled with Latin and with French a toilsome March began for us,
How the midnight oil we burned, that our teachers might not fuss
Though Miss Reynolds and Miss Sims helped make the fight seem less
A helping hand they always gave, for they ruled by love, not by fear.
Now Miss Reynolds and Miss McKeowen held for us a strong light
Mr. Milne led us onward helped us rise to a loftier height,
Then two teachers much respected our Miss Bartlett and Miss Mays
In our Cicero and physics encouraged us by their praise.
And as we the immortal class stand poised for an unknown fight
Misses Abernathy, Scott and Dean hold for us the glad light,
Now at last we have reached the end of our most beloved High School
To our companions I should say, we have gladly kept each rule.
How hard to think we now must part with dear teachers true and kind,
Of our lives they have been a part, to our faults they have been
Never shall this class forget them, who by their kindness cheered us.
Though many cares beset them, they have by their wisdom steered ns.
Thus 'tis finished and now on to victory Is our glad cry.
With our strong faith undaunted, as our banner we wave on high
"As with much pain and sadness, much of joy and much of gladness
With all that fills the hearts of friends, when first they feel with
secret pain, their lives henceforth have separated ends and never
can be one again."
"For one thing thou perceivest, which makes thy love most strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long."
PROPHECY FOR THE CLASS OF
Ocala, Fla., July 10, 1928.
Dear Mr. Workman:

I am now in Ocala again, having
just returned from a trip around the
world. Last night I took down my
old grammar school geography from
a high shelf, and as I gently pulled
it down, dozens of its ragged leaves
fell fluttering to the floor in a cloud
of dust. Naturally I turned to a

all were many mile3 apart. I would

of my various experiences, but since
it Is impossible, I shall only tell you
of the record since 1914 of those
students of that class, of whom you
will still think whenever you view
your gray hairs in your mirror.
Before starting out I paid a short
visit to my sister, Theodosia, in Al Albany,

heard that Theodosia married a wid widower

seventeen children. He is quite

table manners are perfect, and they

After leaving New York, I started
for Alaska, stopping on my way to
spend a few days in each of the larg largest
est largest cities thru which I passed. A
week was spent in that cold country,
after which I crossed the Bering
Strait, by way of the new Bering
Strait tunnel, which has recently
been completed. As I sat comfort comfortably
ably comfortably on the train and knew that
great blocks of ice "floated over my
head, I thought how great is man,
and how great was the man who car carried

Small the fundamentals of measures
and angles, that you were laying the
foundation of the success of the
greatest civil engineer of modern
times? No doubt, some day in the
near future, the entire map of the
world will be altered by this wonder wonderful
ful wonderful brain.
The climate in northern Siberia
was even colder than Alaska, but
when I reached China I found it to
be delightful. I next made a quick
visit to sunny Japan. One day I was
attracted by an arch of blooming
flowers. After I had passed under
the fragrant shelter, I came to an
equally picturesque cottage. My
guide pointed out to mea sign on
the door, "The American Beauty
Doctor. Come in and learn how Am American

read a number of magazine articles
on the fad of Japanese women, who
wished to look like Americans. As
I was anxious to know how this was
done, I entered the cottage. A num number

beautiful creature in the red-spangled

Gladys Martin. I had no time to

brain was in a whirl, following the
quick movements of the dancer as
she twirled now here, and now there,

I had a long conversation with
Gladys, who said, "No wonder I was

heard of books giving people pleas pleasure,

had gone to 'Africa to do missionary

"Nellie," I said, "don't you remem remember

looked down at my feet .expecting

service was the most serious of acts.
Nor, through adversity, stress and
failure, did he for a moment swerve
from that ideal; he held himself as
a very priest of beauty dignifying
at once himself and his calling.
Thought not what would be call called

and deep thought took him to deep deepest

"Ballad of Trees and the Master."
"Into the woods my Master went,

With a vision of the "wonders that
were to be" he utilized every spare
moment for the development of his
mind. Strange as it may seem,
young Edison, who is known by many
as the "poor newsboy," became an
electrician by chance, a chemist by
years of hard labor and denial of
everything but the barest necessities
of life. We can hardly conceive it
possible that a man with his first
laboratory in 'a box car, should in
some way by his many inventions,
assist almost every industry and bus business
iness business on earth. It usually takes the
perspective of years to enable us to
see greatness in its true proportions,
for as great men rise and bring forth
their theories the tendency is to ig ignore
nore ignore and deride them. But Edison
is a great exception, for few men
have accomplished more, and few
have been more appreciated, and
justly so, for to no man, dead or

than to Edison.

Minor Pedrick was born at the

and moved to Ocala abotu two years
ago. He had been working for his
brother, Mr. Walter Pedrick, for the
past year. He has two living broth-

the young man's death is that his
mother is also at death's door, with
no hope held out for her recovery
by either physicians or nurse. The
mother is at the home of her son
Walter, on North Magnolia street,
and has been ill with a complication
of maladies for several weeks.
Mr. Pedrick, though only living in
Ocala for a year, has many friends

Property Sold in IMoKttiL Ocala,
Kflsidl odd h)D PairS ff Yocd
FEW YEARS AGO when my Saw Mill, Planning Mill, Residence, Barn, and other buildings were burned there was
nothing left in North Ocala except Mr. W. H. McConn's home and a big pile of ashes. Shortly after this I.
subdivided forty acres into 159 lots, put this on the market under the name of Marion Heights. In a few months
I had sold about 80 lots. Among the buyers were the following well known home people who bought either for invest
ments or home sites :
- .. .
Dr. Harry Dozier, R. B. Stripling, Dr. E. Van Hood, Dr. A. L. Izlar, John Dozier,
Col. Frank Harris, Tom Conway, Henry Hogan, Mrs. M. M. Little,
Prof. Geo. Stewart, Dr. Baskin and many others.
Following this sale a few houses were built and I put up the price of the remaining lots to 75 and 100 dollars. At
that price I sold off all but 50 lots. A few months later I sub-divided a portion of Block P of Alfred's addition to Ocala,
which property adjoined Marion Heights, into 20 lots. On this plat I built five small houses and in a few months I had
sold the five houses and the remaining 15 vacant lots. Then I sub-divided block 108 of Allred's addition into 22 lots. On
the lots I built five more houses. I soon sold these and the remaining vacant lots in this block.
Three years ago the Florida Central Land Co. sub-divided Blocks 3 and 4 of Allred's addition, making 56 lots. These
have all been sold, the greater portion having been sold at auction, bringing from 50 to 165 dollars a lot. One year ago
we sub-divided Blocks 1 and 2, also a portion of Block K. into 70 lots and more than half of these lots have been sold and
still they are going. I also built and sold two houses on Block 5, Allred's addition.
The lots that have been sold in North Ocala, including the: twelve houses referred to, and also a few small tracts sold
outside the city limits, foot up the snug little sum of $30,000.
The following is a list of home builders and investors, in North Ocala:
Dr. J. C. Boozer, Z. C. Chambliss, Taylor & Hooker, Clifford Bray, Hayes & Guynn, Baxter Cam, Heron Todd, J.
D. Small, A. L. Izlar, Mrs. M. M. Little, Mr. Coggins, R. R. Carroll, Dr. Harry Dozier, D. W. Tompkins, J. G. Ferguson,
D. A. Smith, J. M. Gates, Ernest Spencer, M. T. Orr, W. H. Footit, W. R. Peebles, Alfred Ayer, D. S. Woodrow, L. R.

H. D. Todd, Mr. Grantham, F. M. Dodson, J. M. Rottenbury, Mr. Mullen, Mclver & McKay, M. Fishel, Dr. Klock, J. G.
Kitchline, Mr. Lee and others. Many of these lots or tracts have been sold by the original purchasers for more than 200
per cent profit, not one having been sold at a loss.
I have made this statement to answer certain questions as to the development and increase in value of property, in
North Ocala, as well as to answer certain criticisms of property values in this part of the town.
Now if one man without capital, and with no experience in developing and marketing of Real Estate can
accomplish what I have done in the past five years, what can be done in the next five with this list of boosters and weight
of influence with an investment of more than $40,000? Any man who would Knock Values and Investment Opportuni-o
