The Opportunity of the Farmer and the Duty of the Banker By George M . Reynolds President Continental and Commercial National Bank , Chicago WE are now engaged in the greatest war in the history of the world , and if it is brought to a victorious conclusion we must all cooperate in a whole hearted manner , lt will not do to sit back and expect characteristic American luck or the exertions of our neighbors and friends to win the fight . In all warlike operations , there are four great essentials : men , money , munitions and food . The men may volunteer , investors of the country may , even to the point of self denial , lend their money , to the Government , and through ingenuity and energy , great stores of munitions may be supplied , but the fourth great essential , food , must come from the efforts of the farmer . Men and munitions are the sinews of war , but you cannot support the former on the field of battle without great stores of food , nor can you supply the latter without h...

To the Bankers of America [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1917
To the Bankers of America JU 1 N ftands with your agricultural committee and with those scientists of your college who are devoting their lives to these problems , which have suddenly become a vital issue to the Nation . TO WORK ! For three years , while this horrible tragedy abroad has been occupying the world s stage , we have been complacentl y going about our business , selling our goods and our foodstuffs , and pursuing our pleasures , while our brothers of France and England , our new brothers of Russia , our stricken brothers of Poland and Belgium have been drenched in blood . While we have been living in peace and plenty , millions upon millions of people abroad —the old and the young—men , women and children—have been crying for food . Starvation—rank starvation , illness , misery , death , have been their portion . It is as if we had been making merry in a house of mourning . Now , at last , we , too , are engaged in this terrible conflict , which God grant , may result in...
Help the Fanner to Win the War [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1917
Help the Fanner to Win the War THE people of the United States are not yet aroused to the deadly seriousness of the conditions which the nation faces . They hardly comprehend what it means that we have thrown down the gage of battle to the most marvelous , merciless military machine in the world . They cannot , realize as yet that it will require every last ounce of our energy , billions of our treasure and rivers of our blood to win the victory that must be won . When Earl Kitchener at the opening of the war expressed his belief that it would be fought for three years at least , his statement was regarded as ultra-conservative by the world . Yet Kitchener s prediction has been realized . It does not seem humanly possible—yet the war may continue another three years . Food will win the war . We must feed ourselves and feed our allies . Countless bankers all over the United States are cooperating with farmers to increase our production . Most of the banks in the United States are in ...
More County Agents I [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1917
More County Agents I H ELP to organize your county for a farm bureau and a county agent . No one other agency will prove as valuable to help the farmers do their part towards winning the war . Write to the state leader of extension work at your state college of agriculture . Youll find his name and address on page 7 . Send for a copy of the February issue of THE BANKER-FARMER . It tells how to get an agent . Long before war came the Agricultural Commission urged upon the bankers of America the importance of a campaign to place eventually an agent in every agricultural county in the United States . It is far more important now that this campaign be accelerated . The presence of an agent in a county means that its farmers are being guided along the sanest lines . It means efficiency . The cooperation of bankers has been found to be valuable when county agent movements were started in the past . It will be more valuable and more welcome today . Help to get a county agent ! Let your far...
