ARE YOUR TEACHERS ALIVE ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
ARE YOUR TEACHERS ALIVE ? Not Unless They Are Teaching Patriotism Every Day—By RC . Branson I SNT it time that teachers ceased to be what the average man properly calls mere teachers , innocently or ignorantly aloof from the world of men and events and affairs—aside and apart from the tremendous issues of a time like this ? Here are two programs of teachers monthly meetings nowadays , as they appear in the country newspapers—fair samples of the rest , for the most part : The Teachers Mastery of the * Day s Work ; The Elimination of Unnecessary Talking in Imparting Instruction ; Saving the Voice of the Teacher and the Ear of the Child ; Creating and Perpetuating an Interest in Book Study . Another program reads : How to Teach Spelling , How to Teach Penmanship , How to Teach Language . And so on and on . Every item of which is important in ordinary times ; but all of which looks piffling at a time like this . Not a hint in these programs of anxiety about the world they live in , no s...
NORTH DAKOTA FARM PROBLEMS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1918
NORTH DAKOTA FARM PROBLEMS Why Diversification Must Supersede One-Crop Farming-By P . E . Clement LIKE Hawthorne s man with a snake in his bosom , we are all inclined to think the rest of the world suffers from the same malady as we ourselves , and if ten North Dakota farmers were asked to tell the most difficult problem of the state the replies would probably range from gophers to politics , according to each man s experience , and the answers would all be different . Although there are so many opinions regarding our difficulties , the real problem is that of passing as sanely and expeditiously as possible through the transition stage between the one-crop grain farming of the past and the general or diversified farming that must come . The truth that we must face is that we have grown grain exclusively as long as we can , and no amount of grading and marketing regulations can help us to produce the large yields of clean grain that we used to . Even if this continuous cropping to wh...

THE FARM . FARMER AND THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
THE FARM . FARMER AND THE WAR We Must Back Up Our Country Not Only With Food but With Money IT is impossible to set the farmers of the United States on fire by means of any sudden spark of rumor or to blow a chance catch of flame among them into a conflagration with any hand bellows of artificial agitation ; but when the farmers do ignite they burn with a slow , hot fire , which nothing can put out . They are sometimes the last to heat up , but they stay hot , and in a . long fight they are always found sturdily carrying the battle across No Mans Land to the foe in the last grim struggle . They fight the slow rear-guard action that covers retreat in disaster , and their stubborn valor always helps to turn the tide toward victory in the final triumph . The American farmer will give all that he has and all that he is to win this great war against war , this enormous struggle to win again the victory which we fondly believed we had twice won in the past . This war was at first hard to ...

TO BANKERS OF THE SOUTH-WEST [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
TO BANKERS OF THE SOUTH-WEST Landlord Greed or Ignorance Threatens Food and Feed Crop-You Must Act ! I NFORMATION has reached the U . S . Department of Agriculture that some landlords ln cotton territory , especially in the South-West , are requiring their tenants to pay cash rents for land to be used for food and teed crops while at the same time they allow share rent on all land used for the raising of cotton . This situation is peculiar . Much of the southwestern country has suffered unusual drouth last year and many of the farmers have seen crop failures for two years past . Where landlords have Imposed the above conditions on their tenants the tenants are hesitating about taking the risk of following the urgent requests of the Department to raise food and feed crops for home supply , fearing a crop failure in such crops again and their inability to pay the cash rent . In none of this southwest country do we think it wise to ask farmers to raise crops which are not known to be f...

CREDIT STATEMENT HELPS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
CREDIT STATEMENT HELPS Connecticut Welcomes Plan as a Basis of Short Term Loans-By GuyC . Smith FOR about six months there has been in operation among a number of banks in Connecticut a plan which bases short term loans to farmers on an Agricultural Credit Statement . National banks and trust companies are included in the number . The plan is meeting with favor among both bankers and farmers and it is expected that there will be a gradual extension of the plan through all parts of the state . This plan was inaugurated by the extension service of the Connecticut Agricultural college in cooperation with the Connecticut Committee of Food Supply . It received the endorsement of the executive committee of the Connecticut Bankers association , whose secretary sent out a circular letter to the bankers of the state , calling their attention to it . An initial supply of the credit statement blanks was furnished to banks requesting them and county agents were also provided with them . There a...

make some arrangement for taking care of the delinquency at a later date . The creditor is entitled to such consideration . In fact , nothing less than this can be regarded as strict honesty . No man can expect to secure credit easily , or on favorable terms , who is not prompt in meeting his obligations when they are due . Now there are several sources from which farmers can secure short-term credit . One of the most common is store credit . The merchant who carries a customer on his books is doing nothing more or less than extending him a loan to the amount of his bill without any apparent interest charge . Farm machinery , fertilizer , and other equipment and supplies are frequently bought on time . Indeed , if it were not possible to do this , many farmers would be obliged to go without these necessities . But the man who makes extensive use of all these sources of credit at the sources of credit at the same time is treading ondangerous ground . Tbe point is , that in proportion...

The Home Garden Army [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
The Home Garden Army EVERY boy and- girl who really sees what the home garden may-mean will , I am sure , enter into the purpose with high spirit because I am sure they would all like to feel that they are in fact fighting in France by joining the home garden army . They know that America has undertaken to send meat and flour and wheat and other foods for the support of the soldiers who are doing the lighting , for the men and women who are making the munitions , and for the boys and girls of western Europe , and that we must also feed ourselves while carrying on this war . The movement to establish gardens , therefore , and to have the children work in them is just as real and patriotic an effort as the building of ships or the firing of cannon . I hope that this spring every school will have a regiment in the volunteer war garden army . —President Wilson .
