How Far ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1914

How Far ? WITH this issue THE BANKER -FARMER S first halfyear is finished . The pertinent question is , How far has it gotten—how far will it go ? Those two questions are not related—as ordinarily they would be—for , however encouraged the Commis sion , or satisfied the reader might he—the Association that made it possible might see otherwise . Iii rests largely wife you , patient or interested reader . There can be no question as to fee merit of fhe vital things for which THE BANKER-FARMER stands—no question as to fee need for ardent advocates—no doubt feat these will come and triumph . It would be surprising indeed if , say 150 members ( 1 per cent or more ) entitled to speak , did not object to THE BANKER-FARMER for there is almost always one man or more in a hundred who will object to any or everything , but these members are entitled to be heard .

CLAXTON , United States Commissioner of Education , in a recent address said : More than 65 per cent of our children are educated in the rural schools and they form a large part of our population In the cities . Probably no city produces as many citizens as it kills , and modern civilization with its complex problems and its nerve strain really eats children in the . city . Dr . Claxton advocated giving the rural teacher a home and a tract of land that the teacher might become Identified with the community and he enabled through the land to . make a decent living . -o , • TWO Ohio towns of 6 , 000 population , laboring under the mistaken impression that the prosperity ot a country town is measured by the number of factories within its corporate limits , rather than by the progressiveness and resultant prosperity of the fanners nearby , started a campaign for factories a few yeara ago .

The Most Important Work to be Done j ; : — . , Dean Hills of the Vermont college of agriculture would have endeared himself to the traditional editor , who rebuked the verbose reporter by calling attention to the brevity with which the Creation was chronicled In the bible . The deans concise article may relate especially to New England but his synopsis of the greatest program tn agriculture and rural life may be extended to the whole country . By Dean J . L . Hills THERE is so much to he done that no one thing should be stressed to the exclusion of others ; bat as I see it , the things which bulk large are : 1 .

When a Road is Not a Road-It ' s Robbery [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1914

When a Road is Not a Road-It s Robbery By William Hamilton Miller ( Editor Western Retail Lumberman ) WHEREUPON some enfranchised citizen may ask : When is a road not a road ? The answer is—too often-4 n America . The greatest obstacle to the attainment ot the very best standards in the social and community life of the country is the Inefficiency—or rather , the intermittent efficiency—ot the common , or garden variety , of country road . A road should be a measure of getting there—not a demonstration of obstacles to commerce . We have ln many of the relations of life accepted , and put into practice , the dictum of the Master , to the effect that to stand permanently , the house , the home , must be founded upon a rock . But we still continue to make roads over the shifting sands and the undralned sub-soils that cover the bosom ot the earth . For too long a period , during too many Intervals ot the year , in too many localities in this country , the roads can only be computed in li...

A Significant Defense [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1914

A Significant Defense DESCRIBING the credit unions established tor the benefit ot Jewish farmers in the Bast Isaac F . Marcosson , * writer in Collier s Weekly opened his article like this : While John Jones , the average American farmer of the middle West—and for that matter , any other section of the country—4 s haggling with the local usurer to obtain a loan of $ 100 at high Interest rates to replace the loss of a work horse ,, his Jewish agricultural colleague , Moses Levy , ot New England , New York or New Jersey , can negotiate the same transaction on the easiest terms by telephoning to the treasurer of his credit union . Perhaps Mr . Marcosson didnt mean the local banker when he used the term local usurer , perhaps he meant that John Jones must seek out a loan shark —but at any rate , his language is unfortunately indefinite and most of the people who read the article probably took lt for granted that the local usurer and the local banker were one in the writers mind .

Legislation to Make Pure Seeds [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1914

Legislation to Make Pure Seeds G IVEN a soU and climate that will produce a merchantable crop , the then most vital factor is seed . Indifferent seed may not produce profitable results under the most favorable circumstances , while thorough bred seed multiplies marvelously ln the crop it brings . Breeding and selection , type and prepotency ln seed—ln the geometrical ratio of results to be had—is more important than any other selection or breeding , tor it has reproductive values of one or several thousand fold . If we are to grow two blades where one—or a crop where none grew before—as we will—lt must largely be accomplished through seed selection . Very many factors effect crop . production , but seed selection Is more vital than any of the other factors within our control . Few of us—farmers and all—regard this fact as we should , nor is there relatively much seed to be had with intelligent breeding behind it It requires trained ability to grow and supply such seed In commercial ...

Who is the Rich Man in America ? RECENTLY an employee said to me : I am only an ordinary mechanic and my employer talks as though I were a tenure ln life because I am not ln business for myself , and havent got rich . He tells me that anybody with an ounce of brains and pluck ought to be able to make a fortune In this land of opportunity .

The Rural Credit Status [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

The Rural Credit Status THE dominant party in Congress has decided not to act on rural credit legislation until the winter session . The Moss-Fletcher bill , which the administration is supposed to approve , provides for $ 10 , 000 . 00 land-mortgage banks with power to issue debentures in amount of fifteen times their capital . On the other hand a growing element seems to favor the Bulkley bill based on an extension of the building-and-loan-ftssociation plan to farm loans and connecting these up with a dozen Federal regional-banks . These would get their original capital from federal and . state funds and would issue all debentures . The story of this situation is outlined in the following editorial from the New York Times Annalist : In the row at Washington- over rural credit legislation the issue is clearly defined . Those who are for subsidizing , the farming industry with Government money stand all on one side , behind the new Bulkley bill , and those who think , the Government...
