The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

But the Wildcats Had to Do Their
Darndest to Win Yesterday's
Baseball Battle



Another extra session game was
pulled off at Hunter Park yesterday
afternoon with the Lake CityjTerrors
and the Ocala Wildcats as principals.
The Terrors and the Wildcats have
played four extra inning games this
season. The two teams have to work
harder against each other than against
any other teams they go up against.
Each team used two pitchers in an
attempt to stop the slugging of the
other side in yesterday's game. Ocala
began the game with Hernandez in
the box. Bert did very well until the
fifth inning, when the Terrors got to
him for three hits and two runs.
Again in the eighth he was unable to
stop them and was relieved by Willis,
who held the Terrors to three hits for
the rest of the game. K
The Terrors started Overstreet and
he lasted until the eighth when he
was replaced by Goodbread. All the
pitchers were in good form but the
teams were simply hitting them out
and nobody could have stopped them.

, The stars were as thick as the milky
way in this game. M. Overstreet made
a stop while pitching that was an
eye-opener. He fielded a slow bunt
and although in his attempt to field it
he-, fell he made a perfect throw to
first in time to catch Leon. Van per
formed his usual stunt of making a
pretty catch of a foul fly. Van Is
certain death to fouls. Rymer caught
a long foul that Goodbread sent to
his garden. Bracken nabbed another
foul that was as hard to get as the
one Van captured. Eddie Overstreet
played, his usual stellar game and in
another of the many fouls that were
slapped up in this game.
At bat there were several heavy
sluggers. Van got a couple of sin
t- 1 XT. : T
' Bracken each got a double and
single : Hernandez and Taylor and
Bracken and Taylor pulled off a couple
of real snappy double plays. Bracken
made his first out by an unassisted
force on the second sack and then
threw to Taylor for the double. Her
nandez got his by catching a line
driev and making the double at first.
The Wildcats got an early start and
scored two in the first inning. Fran
cis led off with a single to left. Tay Taylor
lor Taylor sacrificed him to second. Leon
doubled to left and scored Francis
Brown flew out to short but Rymer
singled through second and scored
Leon for the second run. Bracken
Van to Gilmartin.
The Terrors came back in the fifth
and tied the score. Easterly led off
w?th a slow single to second which he
beat out. Gilmartin singled to left
sending Easterly to third. Harrigan
doubled to right and scored both
Easterly and Gilmartin. Goodbread
flew out to center. Huber went out
pitcher to first and Overstreet wen
out Leon to Taylor, retiring the side.
In the sixth Ocala made two more
runs and. was once more in the lead
Leon came to bat first and went out
with a fly to center but Brown hit
a single to left.- Rymer hit to sec
ond, forcing Brown at that sack. With
' two down and Rymer on first, Bracken
hit a two-bagger to right, scoring Ry
mer. Wood singled through short
and scored Bracken, Overstreet walk
ed but the side was retired without
" further runs when Hernandez flew
out to second.
In the eighth the score was again
tied by the determined Terrors. In
man led" off with a little single thru
second. Busk hit to Hernandez, fore
. ing Inman at second. Van was hit
by a pitched ball, Carroway hit
short single to left, filling the bases
Whitney decided that Hernandez had
done all tha.t was wanted of him for
the day and jerked him out. Willis
a new recruit from Madison, stepped
into the box with three on and Ted
Easterly to face him. He tried to
slip one by Ted but had no luck for
Ted drove it to left field for two bases,
scoring Bush and Van. Surely did look
blue for Willis but he set his shoulder
to the wheel and first thing the fans
knew Gilmartin and Harrigan had
made the last outs of the inning.
The score remained tied until the
last of the eleventh when the Wild Wildcats
cats Wildcats broke down the iron nerve of the
Terrors' second baseman and scored
the winning tally on two of his costly
errors. Bracken led off with a single

It is Hoped that Latest Arrangement
Of Roads at Belleview Will Be
Satisfactory to All

A group of Sumter county officials
and citizens came to Ocala yesterday
afternoon and appeared before the
county commissioners and protested
against the joining at right angles of
btate Road Number Two and State
Aid Road Number 124 at Belleview. A
committee from Summerfield also
protested. The people south of Belle Belle-view
view Belle-view contended that the joining of the
road at right angles made it danger dangerous
ous dangerous for cars. turning from one road
into the other. They contended that
a right angle" turn did not give road
No. 124 an equal chance with road
No. 2 in tourist travel and that the
right angle was in violation of the
policy of the state road department
requiring a ten degree curve. Belle-
view representatives who appeared
before the commissioners argued that
the right angle connection of the two
roads would not be dangerous for the
reason that both roads are wide and
they pointed out that the corners
would be rounded off and that sign
posts could be used to direct the tour tourists
ists tourists over the, two V roads. Engineer
Thrasher of the state road depart-
ment was called in and the matter re referred
ferred referred to him by the county commis
sioners. Mr. Thrasher stated, that the
right angle arrangement had been
made by him through mistake' and
that a ten degre curve would have to
be put in in accordance with the pol
icy of the state road department.
It was suggested that a second
curve from the1 east could beput in,
thus forming a "Y" and a convenient
conjunction of the two highways from
both north, east and south. Commis
sioner Clybora stated that he would
arrange to have this east curve huHt
if the people pf. Belleview want it and
the right of way can be provided. He
also stated that he would harden the
street which comes into Road Number
Two at right angles if the people of
Belleview preferred this.
It seemd to be the concensus of
opinion that a "Y": arrangement was
the best solution of the difficulty.

The following article will be inter interesting,

ness business men and citizens generally, in
other callings. It was delivered by
Walter E. Sprecher. cashier of ; the
State Bank of Independence, Wiscon Wisconsin,
sin, Wisconsin, at a meeting of the members of
the Atlanta District, Federal Reserve
System. Mr. Sprecher said:
When I told one of my friends that
your association had'asked me to come
all this way to talk to them, he smiled
and said, "Well that's mighty fine of
you, but I think it's carrying a joke a
; long ways." :'
Now. if you did make a mistake
in bringing me I am mighty glad
that you did, and let me tell you why
in my sojourns to our A. B. A. con conventions
ventions conventions and council meetings and to
Washington in behalf of par clearance,
I got to learn how your beloved secre secretary,
tary, secretary, a better and more versatile story
teller I never heard, and that cour courteous,

that mighty never-flinching little
fighter Adams, who I dare say were it
not for him and Gaiborne, of New Or Orleans

exchange rate would long ago have
been toasted, roasted by the Federal
Reserve System, and that possibly by
this time we country bankers would
have been making a' second unwilling
but forced march to another trough
where there would be no friends to
greet you but merely a big black let lettered,

thank God, you' men 6f the Atlanta

But friends, I have not come to
talk about par clearance, but to speak
on dairying. I was happy to come
' and learn better this part of our great
Southland and reciprocate for that
which you have done for us in the par
clearance fight, and if a state that has
just celebrated its 50 years in dairy dairying
ing dairying can be of service to you or offer
you any advice, we shall be most hap happy
py happy and gracious to be of service to
you. r : V
I am confident bankers of Georgia
have come to realize that the cow is
man's greatest benefactor. Deflation
periods may come, freights rates may
. go sky high; water and ran trans
portation facilities may ; become very
limited; hail, ? wind. droughts and
'floods may come,' destroy our -.crops
and wipe away-our hopes but the old
Cow, and spell it with 'capital letters,
'will take what is left and manufac manufacture
ture manufacture the most nourishing and life sus sustaining
taining sustaining products given to man. In
fact the products of the dairy cow
-have been a better, investment (as re reported
ported reported by the Bureau of Markets and
Crop estimates at Washington) than
any of the other farm products. In
every respect butter prices of 1921
were truly more satisfactory than any
other farm products and this was done
in spite of the fact that there were
$200,000,000 pounds of counterfeit
products sold at a price 'below the
Uwer. grades of butter, handicapping
the butter industry to ; that extent
where other agricultural products had
no handicaps.
. ... .What the Cow Has Done
. But the dairy cow has done more
than that the states that have had
dairying developed the most success successfully
fully successfully have felt the deflation least, and
; to that degree let me say, in which
. dairying has been developed in those.
states. In other words collections are
better in dairy states, mortgages and
notes are paid more promptly, the
farmers receive money from 12 to 24
times a year he has sure return,
land value has fallen less, consequent consequent-.
. consequent-. ly the banks are on a more stable
basis money is. freer, bank failures
' are less.
To be more explicit, let me point to
my own state and I feel that if I can
prove to you bankers of Georgia that
dairying and diversified farming has
made Wisconsin the state that she is
and that Georgia can also, through
proper effort, direction and education
become one of the greatest dairy
states in the union, then I know that
you bankers will give the aid and en
couragement to dairying that Wis
consra bankers have, and still do, in
a larger and constantly larger degree,
i State of Wisconsin
j.ooay Wisconsin is recognized as
the first and foremost dairy state in
America, not only that, but as the
world leader. Bankers and financiers
today recognize Wisconsin as the most
- stable state in the union. During the
year there have been 565 bank failures
in the United States of which Wis Wisconsin
consin Wisconsin has had none to date and I am
4concious -of the fact that the one
crop state of the union heads the list
of bank failures.
Land values in Wisconsin have de

clined $2 per acre according' to gov government
ernment government survey while those of cotton
and corn states ., have declined from
five to ten times as much.
- Wisconsin in 1920 according to the
latest available figures made:
... 74 per cent of all American cheese
made .in the United States.
81.5 per cent of all the Swiss and
Brick made in the United States.
Or 76 per cent of all the cheese
made in the United Statesl
11.5 per cent of all the creamery

26 per cent of all the condensed and I
evaporated milk.
24 per. cent of all the malted and
dried milks.
There are 22,000,000 dairy cows in
the United States of which Wisconsin
has 3,000,000 or a little less than one one-seventh
seventh one-seventh of the whole. m
Corn Comes First
The dairy business is second, only to
that of corn. Farmers get nearly one
billion dollars annuafly for dairying
and our annual output hi Wisconsin is
valued at $300,000,000 or not quite
one-third of all the dairy money, and
remember, Georgia- bankers, this mon
ey has been coming in this last year :
during the hard times this money
has been the life saver of Wisconsin,
generally and especially those coun counties
ties counties where dairying is developed to a
high standard. Let me say those
bankers hardly felt the stringency. I
knov personally in my own banking
community we have two valleys,
though diversified farming is prac practiced
ticed practiced in both valleys, one valley is in inhabited
habited inhabited mostly by a people principally
engaged in grain farming with very
little dairying, a second valley inhab
ited mostly by those better educated,
a valley where I started a cow testing
association last year and where dairy
ing plays a very interesting part and
where they have culled out their poor
cows for years, and use better sires
and have learned how to feed. Right
in these two valleys, which start from
a common center the effects of de deflation
flation deflation are very noticeable. The dairy
valley farmers were receiving their
checks on the 20th of each month.
Money with them, everything consid considered,,
ered,, considered,, wasn't as scarce as with the
grain farmers which this year's crop
was nearly a failure. The dairy
farmer has learned that it was more
profitable to feed their grain to the
cows and use them as the elevator
instead of hauling it to the elevators
or holding the poor grain.
Agricultural Team Work
. Bankers, Wisconsin could not hold
the enviable position she holds today
were it not for the agricultural team
work of bankers, farmers, manufac
turers and lumberman and the school
of agriculture of the University of
Wisconsin. These all work hand in
hand as it takes money and brain, and
ceaseless, patient labor to get the co
veted results. These working together
permit the state to have 90,000 silos
1 UU cheese factories, eUU creameries,
70 condenseries and more than 30
major associations of farmers and nu
merous other organizations that car
ry on particular lines in their respec respective
tive respective districts. But back and over all
these I consider the greatest single
attribute-to dairying in Wisconsin, is
the 110 Cow Testing Association or
about 24 per cent of .all in the United
Mates, in our last 13 years or our
cow testing career the Badger State
has relinquished its hold on first place
but three times and that was between
1912 and 1914. But in 1915 we gained
1 I A
lead of two associations over our
nearest rival, the old dairy state, New
York, which is about three times the
size of Wisconsin, to say nothing of
years in dairying and density of popu
lation. We have 37 associations she
had 35 and ever since that time we
have gained rapidly. 1920 proved the
banner year when we closed with 115

Now time does not permit me to
explain the many merits and working
of the Cow Testing Associations, but
a definition to those of you who dont
know, I will" say a Cow Testing Asso

more farmers in a community who
hire an educated dairyman or tester
as we call him to weigh and test the
milk of each cow in each herd and
keep account of the feed costs of each
cow and production record of the herd
one day in each month & or a year,
Thereby it is possible for you to

In short, the Cow Testing Associa

I in banking, industry and commerce

right to the farmers, and let me tell
j you bankers of Georgia that the more
1 1 study dairy conditions in Wisconsin
the more I realize that we have just
started, in fact the 1920 census shows
that we have but 37 per cent of the
area of the state in improved lands
and that much of what is left can be
turned into dairying.
Dairy Versos Crop States
But before coming to your state, I
j want to show the ability of dairy
states to make payments on its mort-
gages as compared to a one crop state
In doing this I want to refer to the
remarks f Mr. E. G. Quamme, presi president
dent president of the Federal Land Bank of St.
Paul, who has loans to nearly 20,000
farmers, totaling $50,000,000, in every
section of the four great states of
Minnesota, Michigan, the great one one-crop
crop one-crop state, North Dakota, and Wis Wisconsin.
consin. Wisconsin. This you will agree gives
Mr. Quamme' unusual opportunity to
observe and judge the ability of farm
ers to pay. by actual exDerience.
President Quamme says, "We find
that where the farmers practice crop
rotation, and live stock growing, par
ticularity dairying with a number of
good milk cows on the farm they are
sucessfuL Right now we. have only
370 delinquent borrowers in these dis districts,
tricts, districts, from one to 90 days delinquent
as follows
" North Dakota 304, Minnesota 32,
Michigan 21, Wisconsin 13." He goes
on, "to .those who follow agricultural
conditions closely, these figures tell
their .own story. Generally speaking,
the single crop farmer in North Dako
ta is in the worse position. When
adverse conditions over take the crop,
he has nothing left to fall back on.
"Farmers here (referring to Wis
consin) are largely dairymen and have
a safe and dependable income as safe
as anything can be made in the farm
ing line. They are able to meet the
interest; taxes and other costs in ad
verse years like this one and last.
Their homes and investments are safe
guarded. While not making much
money now, when the critical period
is over they will be in a good posi position
tion position to go ahead as before."
These are the words of the president
of the Federal Farm Loan Bank of
St. Paul in regards to states in dairy dairying
ing dairying and those practicing one-crop
North Dakota Conditions
Furthermore I wish to state that
North Dakota had 34 bank failures,
only 10 short of the highest state
which also is a one-crop state. It is
to. be admitted that dairying, like
other lines of business, has periods of
prosperity, and periods, not quite so
advantageous to produce milk. How
ever, as I have before stated, in the
long run there is not the fluctuation
in dairying products and that dairy
products have brought more with less
variations than any other farm
products, Consequently we consider
an investment in dairying to be the
safest and the choicest form of in
vestment. Good reason that invest
ment and securities companies when
selling bonds of the Bankers Joint
Stock Land Bank, of Milwaukee, pic
ture on the circular letters they sent
out some dairy scenes as is shown on
the back of an issue just put out the
other day.
' Soil Fertility
Now there is much more to say in
regard to the dairy cow, such as her
value to soil fertility, which is a great
I need in your state, the making of a
II A X 1 V
happier, contented farmer, who com comprise
prise comprise 75 per cent of the population of
your state, etc., but time does not per
mit. But l trust in taking a con
crete example, like I have shown by
banker's statements and financiers.
and actual figures of states in the
same locality of highest! developement
that dairying is the backbone of agri
culture that from one crop state to
the dairy state, states having same
have felt the deflation less have had
the least bank failures, j
Now, let us look to your grand
state. Let us look straight at the
facts as if we were sitting in a direc director's
tor's director's meeting considering the matter
of reductions xof credit of a farmer
who has not been making good the
last few years, for you men have come
to this convention to check up and
learn possibly some new thought
whose application will mean better
conditions, more prosperous commun communities,
ities, communities, a better and more satisfied agri agriculture,
culture, agriculture, and in the end more deposits,
less losses.
Conditions in Georgia
Now, I do not propose to know or to
tell you conditions in your state as
you know them, and with apologies
do I attempt. If my source of in information
formation information is" correct, Georgia farm farmers
ers farmers first seriously considered dairying
as a part of their agriculture in 1914
when for the lack of shipping space
j it was impossible to get cotton across
the ocean. The price of same rapidly
fell to 5 cents a pound and it was
practically impossible to dispose of
same then. But this was not only
'your great misfortune, last year you
, had fields ravaged with that worn
some little pest the boll weevil which
, cost you $80,000,000, not only m 1921,
but a similar loss the year previous

and it was at this time that your ex extension
tension extension department made a wonderful
success in establishing dairy herds.
When the horse was stolen the farm farmer
er farmer locked his barn. It's the day of
prosperity we put off the evil day.
However, in 1915 it was hut a mat matter
ter matter of short time when cotton prices
began to climb and prices were
reached such that the young farmers
of today never heard of before and
then you went back to your "one-crop"
conditions. I am reminded of the
scripture application. A man lived in
his plenty and selfishness not paying
any attention te .his soul's welfare
when his maker brought him very
low. He then promised if his Lord
would spare him he would live a more
useful, worthwhile life. But he was
scarcely well and strong again and he
soon forgot the cause of his former
punishment and grief.
Corn-Crop Evil
So, if I may speak plainly, I believe
your greatest weakness is not the fall
in price of cotton nor the boil weevil,
but the one-crop idea, and if one of
your leading professors is correct, he
says, "Georgia is one of the most ex extreme
treme extreme one-crop states in the Union,"
and I say to you that is your greatest
evil. Wisconsin back in 1863, was a
one-crop state but soon the farmers
found that they had to enter some
other field than raising wheat, for well
can I remember how my mother used
to tell how the chinch bugs use to
come,, how the fields of wheat were
prematurely whitened and bleached
by the chinch bugs that suck all nour nourishment
ishment nourishment in the growing stock. Yes,
how they prayed and watched for the
sky of brass that .refused to bring
forth refreshing rain, and so con

ditions are today in the Dakotas and
Montana where wheat is the one crop.
I say it is'a speculation. It is di
versified vs. the one-crop system.
From a banker's standpoint it is se
curity vs. insecurity. It is the most
stable form of agriculture vs. the
gambler's chance that stakes his all
on the hazard of one throw.
Furthermore,' most diseases, both
plant and animal, affect only certain
plants and not the species. The conse-J
quence is when you practice crop di diversification,
versification, diversification, it limits the spread of
insects and fungus pests. With the
one-crop system, if the blight is once
started, it spreads unchecked from
field to field, county to county until
the one-crop section or state is prac practically
tically practically ruined.
The condition of Wisconsin in the
early days, of Dakota today is your
condition last year, and the year be before.'
fore.' before.' It was when the Badger State
was on the verge of starvation that
men of vision turned the attention of
the state to dairying and as I have
shown you in my remarks before sand
as .'bankers, financiers and manufac manufacturers
turers manufacturers have said, Wisconsin's .dairy
cow made her the safest, the sound
est, yes the state that feels the defla
tion period least.
And now I am glad to tell you that
your state, HKe most other southern
states, is very suitable to dairying.
The climate conditions are ideal for
dairying. Most any forage crop can
bs grown here. You have the famous
soy bean and the velvet bean, besides
the different sorghums which1 silage
has run as high as 18 ton to the acre
and I understand this is preferable to
corn which you also raise to some ex
tent. Furthermore, north of the
Piedmont district, grows alfalfa and
while it will cost a little more to get a
stand you will harvest five crops to us
a possible three. While you have a
serious deficiency in the lack of pas pasture
ture pasture you have proven that you can can-maintain
maintain can-maintain permanent pastures and by
using your Southern grass called Ber Bermuda,
muda, Bermuda, I believe, mixed with Japan
clover should give you the equal of
our blue grasses of the North. I un understand
derstand understand that you also have the nice
cool spring water which is a great as asset
set asset to good sweet cream.
To Produce Butter
While it cost us, according to our
Cow Testing Association, abobt 29
cents to make a pound of butter last
year, with butter averaging 50 cents
a pound, I believe that due to cli
matic conditions you can produce a
pound of butter cheaper than we can
So I can see where in. time, if Georgia
will put her shoulder! to the wheel, if
she will increase the butter produc
tion of her herds, if you will put cows
on the 62.8 per cent of your farms
that now have no cows, you will soon
rival the sale of Wisconsin butter and
cheese. You will be saving about
$65,000,000 a year for farm products
shipped in annually.
However, I am happy to tell you
that at a recent fair in this city-
cheese from five states was entered'
one state was Wisconsin and your
Georgia cheese took the first prize and
Wisconsin second.
