" When a Feller Needs a Friend " [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1917

When a Feller Needs a Friend This is Written by a Farmer Who is President of His Local Bank FIRST of all I am a farmer . But while I have lived on a southern Wisconsin farm all my life , I have had occasion to visit the farms of not only many sections of this state , but also of many other states as well . When organizing a little bank to meet the needs of our com-, munity my neighbors asked me to serve on its board of directors and later to act as the chief executive officer . All of this only means that I have had the opportunity to observe the needs of men acquainted with farming and the necessity for thorough team-work in any ¦ community . Whatever I may say will be for the purpose of developing a greater cooperation between country and town folk . Their interests are in common and It ls to the advantage of all that everything be done to protect the farmer and the business man to serve his best interests . It is undoubtedly true that , as a class , we farmers often keep closer t...

Heroic Women of France [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1917

Heroic Women of France Their . Example Should Inspire Us ~ By Dr . Alonzo Taylor MY words are not powerful enough to do even scanty justice to the most heroic figure in the modern world , and of ages past—the woman of France . Of the healthy men who are not engaged in the military service in France , practically all are engaged either in transportation of or In the manufacture of munitions , leaving the agriculture absolutely to the women . Not only this , but they have stepped into the place of work animals ; you can go into any section of France today and see women of . magnificent , noble womanhood hitched to the plow and cultivating the soil . All of the agriculture rests upon their shoulders . The home , always an extremely efficient home , maintains a few old men , the wounded and the tubercular . Uncomplaining , with high devotion , with an attitude that amounts almost to religious exaltation , the woman of France bears the burden . Now , conditions being as they are , does i...

INCREASED PRODUCTION IS NEED [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1918

INCREASED PRODUCTION IS NEED A Message from the President of the American Bankers Association THE world ls entering on a new era . It seems to have turned its back forever on the past . Precedents and traditions have suddenly become obsolete . Political economy , as interpreted and applied , seems to have been shaken to its foundations . For the time being , at least , the so-called law of supply and demand is being ignored or defied . Industrial methods are being revolutionized . The Impossible—or what was formerly regarded as impossible—is a matter of daily achievement . Great Britain , producing sixty-five times the quantity of war munitions secured in the first year of the war , and also recruiting and maintaining almost the greatest of armies , has performed an industrial miracle as truly as the advance In Flanders is a military miracle . In this country we are working to a similar end and nobody can doubt that we will be successful . From the changes and developments in method...

The Problem in the South [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1918

The Problem in the South By B . C . Powell Member Agricultural Commission , A . B . A . AS we begin to think of outlining our work for 1918 , we are once more brought face to face with the same question that has faced us for the past three years and that is the fact that the cotton crop has proven more profitable than the year that preceded it . This may not Indicate very much to those who have not had a part ln the other campaigns , but to those of us who have been making this fight for a number of years it means a great deal . It was an uphill game to to interest many of the farmers of the cotton producing states to even try on a small scale some other crop when cotton was selling for seven cents , and as the price has steadily increased each succeeding year , we find that it takes more time and thought to get enough farmers interested to make the plan of diversification worth while . It has so long been the Idea in the South that any ignorant farmer could raise cotton that many b...

To the Colors ! P VERY man , woman , boy and girl of . the farm ! The farm- *~< ers have responded loyally to the call of the Nation The story of their answer in 1917 is told in the reports ot the crops . But they must do even more if democracy is to win Its Ute-and-death struggle . There must be a greater production of staple crops and livestock in 1918 . But the farmers cannot do it all . Behind them there must be the cooperation of every American . Closer to the farmers than any other class , stand the bankers . What the farmers have accomplished in 1917 would not have been possible without the whole-hearted cooperation of the bankers . This cooperation must continue . It must be enlarged . Nothing must be left undone that will help the farmers to raise the food that our armies , those of our Allies , and the civilian populations of ourselves and our Allies must have . The bankers of America , organized and individually , must support the farmers in their great task . ...
