We Must Do More [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
We Must Do More THERE has been so much talk of the necessity of a greater production of food—of conservation of food—that some of us , bankers and farmers , may be a trifle weary of having it dinned in our ears . But we . might as well realize that half enough has not been said . The American farmer has speeded up production . The banker has stirred himself to cooperate as never before . But everything that has been done is only a start Both farmers and bankers must redouble their efforts . We face years of grim , devastating war . There is no way out except victory . Food will help to achieve that Let Lloyd George , Prime Minister of Great Britain , take the witness stand-. Whatever befalls , no government will ever again neglect agriculture , he says . War . has taught us that the preservation of this essential industry is as important a part of national dedefense as is the maintenance of the army and the navy . Military valor and military skill will not alone save a nation if the...
Enter a Big City Bank [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
Enter a Big City Bank IN that well-considered address by Melvin A . Traylor , president of the Livestock Exchange National bank of Chicago , to the bankers of New York , he said : Probably the most surprising feature of our well organized and efficient city banks is that , so far as I know , with one or two exceptions , not one in the United States has an agricultural department officered and equipped to render special service to their country clients in the matter of properly and efficiently financing the increasing and legitimate rural agricultural demands . Is it not high time that some attention was paid to this particular line of American banking ? If it is not done then the day will come when the present hue and cry against the high cost of living will sound like a gentle zephyr as compared with the riots and tumults that will follow from the results of a continuation of the policies that have characterized our indifference in this respect in the past . Now comes the announcem...

What the Banker is Doing [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
What the Banker is Doing THE banker is not trying to pose as a teacher of agriculture . If that myth obtains anywhere , it is evidence that the real meaning of the banker-farmer movement has not been interpreted . The banker is trying to cooperate with the farmer , just as he has done with his merchants , manufacturers , and other customers . Because he is—or ought to be—a community leader , he can be a power in movements to obtain county agents and other adjuncts to a better agriculture . Because he is—or ought to be—in close touch with the world that is doing things , he can put the farmer in touch with the best methods to better yields and make more bank deposits . The banker is really teaching himself a lot of things he ought to know about agriculture . As J . R . Wheeler told the bankers of Wisconsin , the banker , in seeking to make his farmer clients more efficient , is making himself more efficient He has a long way to go . How many bankers know what crops are best adapted (...
Cheap Seed is Costly [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
Cheap Seed is Costly EVERY banker should campaign to encourage the purchase of only good seed , which means the best seed that can be obtained regardless of cost . County Agent Eckhardt of De Kalb county , Illinois , in his monthly bulletin for July tells something about the cost of cheap seed . An analysis of clover seed which was sold to the farmer for $ 8 . 40 per bushel demonstrated that to get one bushel of seed that would grow it was necessary to buy more than three bushels of the seed offered , which meant that the seed cost $ 26 . 66 for every bushel that would grow . Illinois is one of the states which has no seed law and Agent Eckhardt charges that it is the dumping ground for seed so weedy that other states will not allow it to be sold . He considers the problem so acute that he has started an organization to deal with the problem . Seed will be brought 2000 miles if necessary to have it free from weeds . Agents such as this one more than justify their existence in one em...
Banker-Farmer Cooperation-It ' s Needed Now More than Ever Before [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
Banker-Farmer Cooperation-It s Needed Now More than Ever Before By Charles A . Hinsch Vice-President American Bankers Association THERE probably never was a period in the history of this country when there was a greater need of cooperation between the banker , the farmer , and the Government . Xf we are to be successful in the world war this unification of effort is not only necessary , but imperative . The banker displayed his loyalty in underwriting the bonds and offering the same to his clients , without profit or hope of individual reward . It is not wise for the bankers of this country to invest their funds in long-time securities , even if they are absolutely safe , because the province of a bank is to keep in liquid condition , so that it will be in position to respond to the needs of the merchants and manufacturers , who find it necessary from time to time to call upon the banks for temporary capital . Banks should therefore make every effort to place the bonds subscribed by...
Have You a Calf Club in Your Bank ? No ? Then Read This Page [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
Have You a Calf Club in Your Bank ? No ? Then Read This Page Here s one of the thousands of calf club boys in the United States—he s the son of Banker Gresser of Rossville , Kansas , and when he grows up it is certain that he wiU be a banker-farmer . The recommendations of the Indiana college of agriculture on this page will interest every banker . The college is opposed to the plan to hold a sale at the end of a year , which has been followed by many banks . There are arguments for both methods . Send for back numbers of this publication if you want to start a club . WHAT is a dairy calf club ? It is an organization of boys who desire to purchase , feed and develop a dairy calf of one of the special dairy breeds . The local banker , or a group of bankers , agrees to finance the movement After the people are sufficiently acquainted with the plan , application blanks are distributed to be signed by both the boy and his father or guardian . Each boy signs a bankable note for the cost ...
talk about the fanners Why the Banker Needs Education Just as Much as the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
talk about the fanners Why the Banker Needs Education Just as Much as the Farmer By George R , James out and take two WE talk about the fanners needing education , —and Heaven knows they doi It is ignorance that makes a man go mules and two men and two plows to run a little furrow when by combining the team one man might go fishing while the other would do more and better work with the two mules . That is because they have not been educated to the use of improved implements and other substitutes of horse for man power . But I have not seen a man yet who adopts that method of farming who does not appear to me to be a paragon of wisdom as compared with the average business man and banker , including myself . As well talk to an average farmer about the needs of agriculture as to talk to a pig about holding Sunday school . We don t know anything about it , and we are not interested in it Talk of a subject you dont know anything about , and you lose interest in it at once . In the past t...
Financing the Beginner with Pure-Bred Livestock—How It has Paid [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
Financing the Beginner with Pure-Bred Livestock—How It has Paid WHEN I came out here twelve years ago , I naturally felt interested in the two men in our business territory who were breeding pure-bred stock , each having a small herd of Shorthorns . As is usually the case , they had started with rather plain cattle , both in quality and breeding , had tried out the business in a careful , conservative way and had begun to see its possibilities . They held a public sale together , making an average of $ 94 per head , and each then bought a few of the better sort . One of them died before reaping the harvest from his investment in better cattle , but he had built up a splendid herd and could he have lived even another five years , he would have profited handsomely . The other man has built up a splendid herd , about eighty head , on the farm now that would bring at least $ 40 , 000 if dispersed at auction , but there is no such intention , as his son has -taken an interest in the busi...
What the Bankers Ought to Know About Agriculture—but Don ' t [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
What the Bankers Ought to Know About Agriculture—but Don t By H . C . Can First National Bank , PorterviUe , California Here s a report — but don t dodge . We re all inclined to when someone threatens to read a report —but this is a digerent kind of a report , a frank statement by the chairman of the committee on agriculture of the California Bankers association . He hands his brother bankers some jolts , but dont feel superior to California—maybe they fit your state—and you ! FOR three years we have at these conventions of ours attempted in our feeble way to exalt the farmer and magnify his name before this convention of financially immaculate and agriculturally unwashed . And to what purpose and with what effect ? Simply this : When to my friends I raved of the importance of the farmer , and how he held the destiny of this people in the hollow of his horny hand , and how it seemed to me he should be exalted—yea , even above the banker —the aforesaid friends thought of their vaults...

A Credit Statement for Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
A Credit Statement for Farmers A CREDIT statement adapted to the needs of New Jersey farmers has been devised by Jan van Herwerden , president of the Rahway Trust company of Rahway , New Jersey , and chairman of the committee on agriculture of the New Jersey Bankers association . We consider this statement more simple and more easily executed by the average fanner as he is known in New Jersey , than more elaborate statements , , says Mr . van Herwerden . The statement is as foilows : From .. — Address . — To RAHWAY TRUST COMPANY , RAHWAY , NEW JERSEY The following is a full , true and accurate statement of the financial condition of the undersigned on the day of .. _ 19 ...., and it made for the purpose of procuring credit from time to time from the above company , and is to be regarded as continuous and binding as a basis of credit until replaced by another written statement or revoked in writing ; and the undersigned agrees to promptly notify said company in writing in case any ch...
Food and Victory to be Gained Only by Cooperation of All [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1917
Food and Victory to be Gained Only by Cooperation of All By Herbert C . Hoover U . S . Food Administrator FOOD administration as I see it is the intelligent coordina c Underwoods Underwood f , ood Problems which have arisen in . . the United States and which will arise in the future , would have occurred whether we had gone into the war or not . The outstanding basic facts in the food • situation are : 1 . That by diversion of millions of men from productive Sabor to war , the food production of our allies , and of Europe generally for tliat matter , has greatly diminished ; the soil has been depleted due to shortage of fertilizer and labor and today • we find the present harvest among our western allies is short of the normal by 525 , 000 , 0000 bushels of grain . 2 . These countries always import a considerable amount of foodstuffs and today their markets are dislocated and many of them entirely stifled . They are thus thrown on North America for a larger portion of their imports ...
