THE BANK'SPART IN THE FARM PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
THE BANKSPART IN THE FARM PROBLEM By H . LANE YOUNG Member American Bankers . Atspcia-, tloh Agricultural Commission , ONE of the most discussed and least understood questions regarding the farmer s problems is the part the bank has played , : : or is to _ play , in financing the farmer . The basis of co-operation between the two , however , is a very simple one . Both sides are subject to criticism for the condition , that exists today . The major share of the blame rests on those H . Lane Young banks that have failed through disregarding fundamental principles in loaning other people s money , that have encouraged the farmer to expect bank loans without first putting his business on the earning basis which would justify a bank to lend him money . One of the underlying reasons for the failure of so many country banks has been the existence of too many banks . With the limited business of the commmunity • divided among too many banks it was impossible for them to make enough money t...
As An Agriculturalist Sees Farm Board ' s Job [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
As An Agriculturalist Sees Farm Board s Job The new Agricultural Marketing Act approaches farm relief from a materially different point of view from that of former bills before Congress in recent years , says Dean H . L . Russell of Wisconsin University College of Agriculture in the American Bankers Association Journal . It contains a new , idea , fraught with the greatest possibilities—the organization of a Federal Farm Board , be says . It has been possible for farm cooperatives to borrow from Federal , aided institutions before , and at a ma . terially lower rate than : city business men had to pay for working capital , but this i 3 the first set-up made by the government in which a commission has been carefully chosen to give undivided attention to an effort to solve the problems of a farm group . It is hard to conceive of a higher degree of responsibility than must be assumed by this commission . No board ever created by congressional action has been clothed with as wide plenar...

When Is Draft Not a Draft ? Dr . Hill Jells [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
When Is Draft Not a Draft ? Dr . Hill Jells • When-Is a draft not a . draft?—that is , . when are cooling breezes beneficial to the body , and when will they cause colds 5 This is a question every housewife ponders whenever she exposes her children to air currents during hot weather . The answer , according to the Holland Institute of Thermology of Hol Dr . E . Vernon land , Mich ., Hill . opens up one of the most fascinating phases of modern air conditioning science . A draft is , a current of air which , by reason of its low temperature , low humidity , or high velocity , or any velocity , or any combination of these three , removes a greater amount of heat from the part of the body It comes in contact with than the surface of that part normally gives off . This definition was formulated by Dr . E . Vernon Hill , of Chicago , who is both a physician and one of the foremost air-conditioning engineers in the country . It means , among other things , that If air motion is to be used ...

Novel Use of Fan Bans Heat Spells [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
Novel Use of Fan Bans Heat Spells Next : to the hearth , the fan Is the oldest instrument of comfort humankind has had , points out the Holland Institute of Thermology of Holland , Mich ., and it remains today one of the most potent sources of heat relief available . Only , instead of being an exquisite . fabric worn as a rjersonal adornment , or an elegantly decorated plume waved by a slave , or a punkah kept moving by a ; coolie on the veranda of an East Indian bungalow , the pres- • ent-day fan used for cooling purposes is an efficient mechanical affair , run by electricity , and installed in the heating system . Operated during a summer hot spell , this type of air propeller keeps strong currents moving through all the rooms of the home . This air motion , according to the engineers of the Holland Institute , cools the bodies of the occupants by two methods . Flr .-t , moving air brushes off , so to speak , and conveys away from • the body more heat than still or stagnant air ca...
Use of Combine Fast ' Increasing on Farms [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
Use of Combine Fast Increasing on Farms Machine Will Facilitate Practice of Double Cropping . ( Pnpnrcd by tlio United States Department of Agriculture . ) Summarizing an article on The Influence of the Combine On Agronomic Practices and Research , John H .. Martin , of the United States Department of Agriculture , snys : Extensive use of the combine probably will result in a decrease of diversified farming and increases both in the size of farms and fields and in the practice of early tillage . The combine also will facilitate the practice of double cropping , in some sections . • The use of the combine is limited much more by the type of farming than by climatic or . topographic condi tions . Combining will probably largely solve the problem ot organic matter in the soil in the regions east of the Rocky mountains by immediately returning the crop residueb to the land , if needed . The usual loss of straw for feed in combining probably will be compensated by growing feed on land no...

Sweet Clover Big Help in Improvement of Soil ( K- B . WELLS—Extension Soils Specialist , Kansas Agricultural College . ) Sweet clover as a soil builder tops all other legumes . Being a legume , It has the power of taking free nitrogen from the air and using it . in the building of its own tissue nnd storing some in the soil for use by the crops which follow . Plenty of lime and proper inoculation are the only requirements needed by sweet clover for a good stand . By growing sweet clover which draws upon the subsoil for a large amount of its mineral elements and then plowin £ the crop under for following crops - in the rotation , the sweet clover enthusiast is able to utilize his soil to much greater depth than is ordinarily the case . Sweet clover has been found to . be superior to most crops in its ability to utilize the phosphoric acid of raw rock phosphate .

Efficient Production by Improved Equipment [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
Efficient Production by Improved Equipment More efficient farm production may be secured where the equipment used on the farm is all of approximately the same size and requires the same power ; unit to operate it . For example , a farm needing four work horses may secure the most efficient production by having as much . machinery as possible that requires four horses . This keeps the horses in use the maximum proportion of the time and results In lower production costs . Lower production costs are the result of more efficient use of man labor where one man is driving as many horses as possible all the time . Enlivens the Party When we are entertaining friends on a sweltering summer evening , according to the Holland Institute of Thermology of Holland , Mich ., all we need do to get relief from the heat for the party is to turn on a switch in the kitchen , connected with the electrified air propeller in the most modern type of warm air circulating plant ..
