The Agricultural Commission [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1914

The Agricultural Commission THE Agricultural Commission of the American Bankers Association concerns itself with recording suggesting and encouraging efforts by the various state associations and their committees in the direction of better agriculture and education . The word agriculture covers all crops and products of the soil and all the phases of normal , irrigated and dry farming , under which they are produced . As the commission represents the national association , its scope is nation wide . Its function may follow somewhat the federal function—the principle of federal aid in this field being well established . The real results , however , must be accomplished within the states themselves—and by state aid . The federal or central function is to initiate , point out and inspire and help shape the course . So also with the Bankers Agricultural Commission . THE BANKER-FARMER is one of the methods of encouraging and nationalizing the splen did constructive and cooperative effort...

A Fallacy Exploded ( Continued from Page Two ) It is and always will be the soundest of economic doctrine tor the fanner to bend his best energies towards Increased production . Maximum crops are the most benignant form of wealth that can visit a nation . • Big crop yields , therefore , signify national wealth , national prosperity ; but what shall we say ot the effect of this new heresy on the farmer ? Accept the principle that there ia . no reward tor increased production , and you aim a stroke at the very vitals of agriculture , paralyze its energies and rob lt of that ambition which has lifted man through all ages to his present estate .- Once convince the farmer , that there Is no reward in larger yields , remove all Incentive to exceed , to surpass , to progress , and you will have effectually turned the face of this nation towards barbarism .

The Home Town ONE good thing about Investing your money at home Is the fact that before you Invest you can investigate . o There Is one little town In Ohio that . has risen from a comparatively dead condition to one of business activity all on account of the building of a fine system ot turnpike road . The township each year makes an appropriation for so many miles of pike , and the -farmers that contribute the most money and work each year get the pike out their way .
