BACKING UP THE COUNTY AGENT [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1918
BACKING UP THE COUNTY AGENT FfcRTIUZfcD UNFERTILIZED The county agent drives home his points , not by text books but by demonstrations such as the above . County Agent Leam ing of Jasper county , Indiana , used these , photographs to urge his wheat growers to invest in phosphate fertilizer . Uncle Sam s Field Captains for 1918 Welcome the Banker s Aid THE way In which banks have become interested in offering additional service to the farmers in this state is very interesting . During the last year banks in two counties have employed agents to cooperate with the county agricultural agent in handling the business of buying and selling for the farmers where such work would mean a saving . In one county the agent of the banks is placed in the Farm Bureau office and Is dlrec &lt; ly under the supervision of the Farm Bureau committee . This appears to be a very happy combination as it relieves the county agricultural agent of a great deal of the detail of securing financial assist...
Organize Every Community [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1918
Organize Every Community By George E . Roberts Member Agricultural Commission , A . B . A . THE year 1918 calls for redoubled efforts on the part of everybody who is in position to help in securing a larger production from the soil . The importance of Increasing the supply of foodstuffs is so evident that emphasis or argument seems unnecessary . But while we recognize the importance , do we actually take home to ourselves the obligation to do something about it ? A great deal of good was accomplished in 1917 by organization in county seat towns and smaller towns to aid the farmers at the critical times in the production of the crop . The high school boys were used effectively , and there Is a great deal of labor about the towns which can be spared for a week or so at a time when the need is greatest . There are other ways also In which help can be given . The organizations which were formed last year should be strengthened and perfected now for the season of 1918 . Every agricultura...

VICTORY IS PIG CLUB SLOGAN New York Boys and Girls Raise Pork to Beat the Kaiser—By F . L . Griffin THE pen is mightier than the sword , What our pens produce is no doubt a long way toward winning the war ! How and why it came about the pork supply of Tioga county , New York , was increased over 11 , 000 pounds by the individual efforts of sixty-eight girls and boys under sixteen years of age , is well told in this report of one of the children . He was right on the job three times a day with middlings and swill and other dainties that go to make up the pigs daily meals . Waino Salo writes : I learned through my district school that any boy between the ages of ten and eighteen could secure a four weeks old pig from the First National bank of Waverly , New York , for five dollars , which sum would be loaned for six months at five per cent interest . Also that purchasers of the pigs would be entitled to a membership in the War Pig club . We received directions in the care of the pig f...

A HOOSIER BOYS SHEEP CLUB How the Tippecanoe county boys took home their sheep A boy s sheep judging contest at Wilsey , Kansas How the County Agent , the Banker and the Breeder Cooperated SEEING the great need of wool and meat products and knowing the great need of more sheep on the farm , we decided to form a boys sheep club in Tippecanoe county , Indiana . We found three problems confronting us in this work . First , where were we to find the sheep ; second , how could we secure the money to buy them ; and third , how were they to be distributed . In answering the first question Jesse Andrew , a well known Shropshire breeder of this county , offered his influence and cooperation . He secured from a breeder in another county eighteen head of registered Shropshire ewes , oue and two years old , and bred them to an imported ram . This cost Mr . Andrew time and money but he was anxious that the boys have good sheep . The boys agreed to pay $ 30 per head for these ewes , on a year s t...
FOOD FORESIGHT FOR 1918 [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1918
FOOD FORESIGHT FOR 1918 Maintain a Stock of Insecticides , Says the Food Administration NECESSITY , the proverbial mother of invention , is also the parent of food foresight . Crops for 1917 were abundant to the extent that for the most part they exceeded the average accomplishment of past years . But in view ¦ of our own needs for 1918 , and those of -our Allies in this war , crops of the past season will be adequate only through conservation and the utmost effort to reduce waste . The Statistical Division of the Food Administration receives reports on stocks of food and crop conditions in all countries of the earth . Figures of the available food supplies are constantly being revised , most of them brought up to date monthly , and those of extreme importance revised weekly . Thus the Food Administration has constant knowledge of ( ood conditions as they exist all over the globe . Regular reports required from the principal foodhandling industries of this country which are now unde...

EVERY BANK A GARDEN DADDY So-called big business takes time for little gardens—a section of the . war gardens of the Oliver Chilled Plow company at South Bend , Indiana Make Early Plans for the Spring Campaign—By Charles hathrop Pack THE bank is the beacon light pointing the way to thrift . We are all familiar with the penny saved is a penny earned and that we start you with a dollar . Money grows , that we know , although it may seem like a slow process but grow it surely does .

The growing of food at this time is a question of patriotic thrift and in this question the bank should lead for thrift will save this nation . What better thing can a bank do than be the daddy of a war garden ?...
THE BANK ' S CORN SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1918
THE BANK S CORN SHOW It s Encouraging Growers in the North-West THE Corn Show held in the lobby of the Exchange National bank , Spokane , Washington , was a practical example of closer cooperation between the banker and the farmer . Many of the exhibits were grown from seed corn distributed free by the bank to farmers who promised to plant at least an acre of corn to exhibit at the bank s corn show . Hundreds of farmers availed themselves of this offer and there were about 400 exhibits sent in . The quality of the corn was exceptionally good .- Valuable prizes were awarded to the winning contestants . G . S . Ray , head of the Farm Crops Department of the University of Idaho acted as judge . The states of Washington , Idaho , Oregon and Montana were divided into districts so that corn grown in a dry belt did not have to compete with the product of irrigated land . The boys did not have to compete with the men and everything was done to make the awards as fairly as possible . The imp...
THE FARMER AND THE LIBERTY LOAN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1918
THE FARMER AND THE LIBERTY LOAN He Will Find Honor and Profit in Answering the Appeal of Uncle Sam EVER since the embattled farmers at Lexington , in 1776 , fired the shot that was heard around the world it has been-an American tradition that the farmers of the country were the very bulwark of the nation . The nature of the population of the United States has changed greatly since the battle of Lexington ; great cities have taken the place of villages and the urban population tremendously increased ; yet still the majority of the people of the country belong to the rural class . The old tradition , therefore , is still justly cherished and maintained by a great and honorable class of the citizens of the nation , not only of those who live on the farms but by a great proportion of the dwellers in the cities . It is in such times as the present when the country is at war with a power whose military resources tax the power of the allied world to defeat that the real Americanism of our ...
The Dutv of the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1918
The Dutv of the Farmer ARE we , as American farmers , going to allow the statement that the farmers are unpatriotic because they are not supporting the Liberty Loan , to go unchallenged ? The only way we can refute this is to lend our Undivided support to the Liberty Loan . Our Government , which furnishes protection to our homes and families , needs more money to equip its army and navy , to help fight . the world s worst enemies . We are sending our sons , brothers and neighbors , to the front , and if we do not subscribe to the Liberty Loan , they will either go unequipped or the Government will be forced to raise the funds by invoking a heavier tax than we are subject to , at the present time . Will you not loan your Government the price of a load of corn , one to two hogs , one steer , or several dozen of eggs , when you have an absolute guarantee that it will return value received at four per cent interest ? You are not asked to pay the money down , but can pay in installments...
WHO'S PAYING FOR THE WAR ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1918
WHOS PAYING FOR THE WAR ? The Deadliest Lie is That It is a Rich Man s War and a Poor Man s Fight T HERE were seven of us in the smoker of a train going into Washington the other day . One member of the party fussily asserted his patriotism . He was thoroughly anti-German and wanted this fight fought to a finish , he said ; but ! And then he jumped on Congress for leaving the rich to get richer out of the war . Poor folks are the folks that will pay these war taxes , the rich are not paying anything to speak of , he said ; and so on and on , ad infinitum , ad nauseam . Twocent postcards , three-cent letters , movie and railroad ticket taxes and the like were cited to show how the plain people were being taxed to death . The alarming thing was the quick agreement of five of us to all the tommyrot the fool was talking , and the low level of intelligence that a group of welldressed people represented . I stood it as long as possible , and finally I asked him if he had read the War Reve...
A MESSAGE TO THE FARMERS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1918
A MESSAGE TO THE FARMERS Their Part in the War as Seen by the President of the United States WE are as a nation in the presence of a great task which demands supreme sacrifice and endeavor of every one of us . We can give everything that is needed with the greater willingness , and even satisfaction , because the object of the war in which we are engaged is the greatest that free men have ever undertaken . It is to prevent the life of the world from being determined and the fortunes of men everywhere affected , by small groups of military masters who seek their own interests and the selfish dominion throughout the world of the governments they unhappily for the moment control . You will not need to be convinced it was necessary for us a free people to take part in this war . It had raised its evil hand against us . The rulers of Germany had sought to exercise their power in such a way as to shut off our economic life so far as our intercourse with Europe was concerned , and to confi...
WHEN AND HOW TO BORROW [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1918
WHEN AND HOW TO BORROW A Big Difference Between Helpful and Harmful Loans—By E . G . Nourse THE day when farming could be carried on with little or no capital has passed forever . Good lands cannot be had free or at $ 1 . 25 an acre today , and the expensive lands we use must be tilled by the most scientific and up-to-date methods if they are to be made profitable . Agriculture has become a scientific industry , and that means that it has become a capitalistic industry . Just as mining , manufacturing , and transportation have succeeded and prospered by securing the best of machinery and the most up-to-date methods through wise expenditure of capital , so the farm business can be kept progressive , healthy , and profitable only by supplying it with a proper amount of capital . The man who reaps the golden harvest in any line of business is the man who is on hand with the capital to take advantage of each business opportunity as it develops . The failure is the man who is too blind ,...
A Message to the Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1918
A Message to the Farmers ( Continued from page 5 ) ly regulated the prices of many fundamental materials underlying all the industries of the country , and has regulated them not only for the purchases of the Government but also for the purchases . of the general public , and I have every reason to believe that the Congress will extend the powers of the Government in this important , and even essential , matter , so that the tendency to profiteering which is showing itself in too many quarters may be effectively checked . In fixing the prices of foodstuffs the Government has sincerely tried to keep the interests of the farmer as much in mind as the interest of the communities which are to be served , but it / is serving mankind as well as the farmer and everything in these times of war takes on the rigid aspect of duty . I will not appeal to you to continue and renew and increase your efforts . I do not believe it is necessary to do so . I believe that you will- do it wijhgut any wo...

A Farmers War Conference THE Illinois Corngrowers and Stockmen , who meet annually at the University of Illinois , this year resolved themselves into a farmers war conference . Every topic on a weeks program was designed to help to answer the question , How can the farmers of Illinois help to win the war ? Addressing this assembly of leaders of agriculture , Governor Lowden of Illinois told them that if they really understood what defeat in the world war meant to the nation , they would go back home determined to do their part at whatever sacrifice . Patriotism was the dominant note of this gathering .

Not only patriotic inspiration but a practical program was given . It was :. Raise more pork and wheat—food for humans , to feed our armies and those of the Allies and the civilian population here and in the Allied countries . With t...
