A PROGRAM FOR FOOD PRODUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
A PROGRAM FOR FOOD PRODUCTION B ECAUSE Illinois farmers had been flooded with general advice to increase production but no definite program had been urged for them to adopt , the War Conference recently held at the state college of agriculture by the State Council of Defense , the Corn Growers and Stockmen and the state college , after careful deliberation and investigation adopted such a program . Since Illinois is the first state to offer such definite suggestions to the farmers , the food production program is reprinted . Much of its material will be of value to other states . Moreover the idea of assembling a conference , such as the Illinois gathering , composed of practical farmers , leaders in their communities , county advisers and specialists of the state college , is one that might well be followed by other states . Committees were appointed , representing each department of agriculture and livestock . These committees were composed of men who spoke with authority . Their ...
WHAT UNCLE SAM ASKS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
WHAT UNCLE SAM ASKS More Food is Need of Nation and Allies N OTWITHSTANDING an increased production of staple crops in the United States in 1917 , there is need for more food . Taking into account our own needs , the needs of the nations associated with us in this war , and the needs of friendly neutral nations , our best efforts will be required to provide enough food in 1918 . Whether the war continues or not , the demands on this country , because of the Increasing population and the needs of Europe , will be great . An especially strong demand will be made on this country for meats and livestock . Chief emphasis should be given to the production of the great staple food products , with special stress on wheat and hogs , the leading war foods . It is believed that the necessary production can be secured through the use of the bestknown farm methods , but it may be necessary to a small extent to sacrifice certain of ( he less important farm crops temporarily in the interest of oth...
WHEAT FOR A HUNGRY WORLD [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
WHEAT FOR A HUNGRY WORLD We Must Meet the Emergency Call—By the U . S . Food Administration WE are in an economic war . All Europe has long since realized that the struggle is more than a test of military strength in which only the men face death . In an economic war the women and children suffer also—and that is a truth the United States cannot too soon take to heart . To the U . S . Food Administration has fallen the duty of steward for the western Allies , and its problem is one of prevention rather than of cure . People come back from Europe saying there is no starvation and no critical food shortage . There ought to be no shortage there . If there should be a shortage that would be a proof that we in America had failed . Our people must understand that our obligation to our boys over there and to the Allies is none the less because they have on hand five or six weeks supply of food . We must keep the food moving to them . If we do not there will be a shortage , inevitably . The...
THE WAR DUTY OF THE SOUTH [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
THE WAR DUTY OF THE SOUTH It Must Feed Its People and Its Stock , Then Raise Cotton-By Bradford Knapp BY safe farming we mean a system which provides food for the people and feed for the livestock of the South ; which maintains our soil fertility and then devotes a reasonable acreage to the production of cash crops to be sold in the markets of the world . Safe farming presumes an income for the farmer not from one crop but dependent upon- a number of well chosen products of the farm , livestock as well as crops , making a better balanced agriculture , a safer system , and a better rural life . I am firmly convinced that the farmers of the South ought to change as they have changed in the past few years until they reach a substantial basis which I have endeavored to describe as safe farming . A better balanced husbandry as well • as high prices of farm products during the past few years have made southern farmers more money than they ever made before . A taste of prosperity from a co...
THE COUNTY AGENT VS . THE KAISER [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
THE COUNTY AGENT VS . THE KAISER Unc . Sam Wants an Agent in Every County in 1918 ~ By Clarence DuBose THE Kaiser has caused three agricultural demonstration agents to flourish in American counties where only one worked before . As a result of the war , and as a part of the program of the U . S . Department of Agriculture for increased food production , practically every agricultural county in the United States will have a county demonstration agent , either on a regular or emergency basis , before the present crop season is concluded . The early part of 1918 finds very few counties not so supplied—and the greater part of these will be in line by Spring or early summer . And so , the war has speeded , by several years at least , the realization of the ultimate objective of the demonstration agent project of the U . S . Department of Agriculture and state agricultural colleges , cooperating—for that goal has been a demonstration agent in every county of the United States . , There ar...
The Banker and Livestock [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
The Banker and Livestock I T NCLE SAM wants 200 , 000 pig club boys this year . That \ J means that more bankers than ever must finance these young hog-raisers . The pig club will be only one of the bankers activities to promote livestock production . Sheep and calf clubs will also interest them . Ask your state college of agriculture and your county agent how to get behind these clubs . And dont forget the grown-up farmers . Cooperate to help them in their livestock plans . Remember what Melvin A . Traylor told the bankers of New York : The country banker today who refuses to assist his farmer customer in the purchase and financing of a reasonable supply of any character of livestock is ignorant of his duty and responsibility , or willfully and criminally careless of his neighbor s and his country s welfare . A Story from Ohio (~) N another page youll find a letter from an Ohio banker , V relating the various ways his community cooperated with the farmer . This banker , with other ...

SOME FARM PROBLEMS IN NEW YORK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
SOME FARM PROBLEMS IN NEW YORK The Opportunities of the Rural Banker to Contribute to Their Solution IN a general way the farm problems in New York State fall into three groups : ( 1 ) production , ( 2 ) distribution , storage and marketing , and ( 3 ) conservation . It is neither possible nor desirable to discuss all of these problems ln this present brief statement . I will mention a few of the most urgent in each group noting particularly those problems with which bankers can help . In the first place before effective work can be done by bankers , I think it is necessary to remove certain disabilities which now exist . While no doubt many bankers are thoroughly cognizant of the changes which have taken place in American agriculture , particularly in the East , in the last decade , yet my experience indicates that there are still large numbers of them who do not realize , or recognize the facts . Particularly in the East we have been living in an age of urban development , in whic...
HOW THE BANKS ARE COOPERATING [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
HOW THE BANKS ARE COOPERATING Little Stories That Give a Hint of What Banker-Farmer Work is Accomplishing AN example of Intelligent interest in agriculture by a banker is afforded by the following letter which was written by C . B . Firestone of the Firestone bank , Lisbon , Ohio , in response to a request for suggestions from Chairman Sams of the Ohio Bankers association committee on agriculture : My first suggestion is the sugar beet . So far as I know , nobody in the U . S . A . thought of this invaluable root in 1917 . Meanwhile France was shamefully deprived of its proper share of sugar and in this country prices doubled . There will again be a condition approaching sugar famine next fall unless Ohio and other farmers plant sugar beets . The industry has been small heretofore in this country because European sugar could undersell ours , but that was at less than five cents , retail . At about ten cents , beet sugar , I believe , can be produced at a profit in half the states of...
STATE ASSOCIATIONS AT WORK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
STATE ASSOCIATIONS AT WORK Committees on Agriculture Plan Help for the Farmer in His Big Job THE Alabama Bankers association , through its agricultural committee , has always taken a keen interest in stimulating the production of all kinds of farm products , and has always been in the forefront of the fight for the improvement of farming conditions , and for the welfare and prosperity of the agricultural community and our efforts along these lines , in connection with other active agencies , have borne good fruit and we are gradually convincing the farmers that their interest and the interests of the bankers are identical and that in order that both may prosper , ample food supplies must be grown at home at all times . In the past , however , this agitation has with entire propriety been based solely upon the theory of self-in-terest , but at the present time the production and conservation of food and feedstuffs is not a question of self interest to the individual , but a great and...
To Save the Bean Crop [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
To Save the Bean Crop THE Michigan Bankers association addressed a circular to members on the subject of Wet Beans . That four million dollars worth of damp beans in the hands of growers would rot unless provisions were made to care for them was stated . Bankers were asked to investigate the situation in their counties and report conditions . Another circular dealt with the seed corn situation . It said in part : All seed corn should be thoroughly tested before it is planted . If a great deal of care is not taken in testing seed corn before planting , there will be more poor stands than ever before . Every possible precaution should be taken to plant only tested corn . A test does not mean biting a few grains off and looking at the germ . It means pulling a few grains from each ear , trying them out in a . box or sand or dirt or between wet cloths . This may sound like wasting time on trifles , for it becomes a vital matter when we think of a few real facts . For instance , one ear ...
Urges Bank Cooperation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
Urges Bank Cooperation / USTOMERS of the Fifth-Third Nav - tional bank of Cincinnati were urged in a circular letter by Charles A . Hinsch , president , to obtain a supply of the United States Department of Agriculture folder , Pork Production for 1918 , and distribute it . In encouraging wheat production we should not overlook the desirability of an increased acreage of corn on account of the necessity of increased pork production , said Mr . Hinsch . In fact , the responsibility of the banker is to assist and encourage farmers in all that pertains to the increase of food supplies . We must give the farmers to understand we are with them and mean to cooperate and assist them in every way , and that they must divert their efforts to the exclusive production of the things neces sary to success in the war . It is essential that we produce many things In quantities enormously greater than ever before . We need more food relatively for ourselves , because many thousands of men have been...
Banker-Farmer Work Wins [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
Banker-Farmer Work Wins THE first carload of pure-bred Holstein cows and calves was shipped to Wausau for the dairy farmers in this neighborhood . These animals were purchased by A . C . Burg of our agricultural school for a group of farmers who wanted not only to increase their herds but also to get a better line of dairy animals . There were some twenty-three animals in the car . This shipment was the result of agitation by our bankers and others interested in better cows and since that time three more carloads have been shipped into various sections of our county . The work of the bankers is beginning to tell for better things in our county . Our farmers have finally discovered that we are really serious about our profession to help them and they are now willing to listen to our suggestions . —C . G . Krueger , First National bank , Wausau , Wisconsin .

Oregon to Raise Fund THE agricultural committee of the Oregon State Bankers association met and decided upon the following plan : Each bank In the state will be asked to set aside a fund amounting to one per cent of its capital stock for the promotion of agricultural matters . The banks in town would then pool this fund and set it aside for the purpose of financing pig clubs , poultry clubs , sheep clubs , calf clubs and other work of like nature , to be carried on in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture , state colleges and with the assistance of the county agricultural agents .
