The Bank Brings Sheep [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
The Bank Brings Sheep ALTHOUGH Orange county , Indiana , has much rough land suited to sheep husbandry , but few men are engaged in this business , hence many hundreds of acres of pasture land were lying idle . Cooperating with County Agent R . M . Roland , the Paoli State bank distributed 15 203 breeding ewes to farmers of the county . These sheep were resold to the farmer at cost , his note being taken in payment in case his ready cash was short . The county agent informs us that they now have an order placed for 200 head more ewes . In cooperation with the animal husbandry department of Purdue , the county agent held a sheep husbandry school for these men . The foresight of this bank will leave a lasting impression on the agriculture of Orange county . — Prof . \ i . I . Christie , Indiana state extension leader .

SAVE 100 , 000 BABIES [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
SAVE 100 , 000 BABIES Cooperate With the U . S . Children s Bureau THE Children s Bureau of the U . S . Department of Labor on April 6 opened its campaign to save the lives of 100 , 000 babies and children during the ensuing year . Statistics show that 300 , 000 babies under five years old died last year in this country ; and 15 , 000 mothers died from causes connected with the birth of children , says Miss Julia Lathrop , head of the bureau . Almost all these deaths were caused by preventable diseases . It does make us feel when we are getting ready to waste life over there a new solemn appreciation of the preciousness of life . We cannot save 300 , 000 lives in a year , although doctors and authorities say half of them could be saved . We have set a very simple task . Let us say we will save one-third , or 100 , 000 babies this year . This is a program which means a great deal of hard work , a great deal of sacrifice , a great expenditure of money ; but above all personal effort a...
California Acts [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
California Acts ( Continued from page 5 ) year where the plan was tried show that an annual loss of a quarter million dollars of foodstuffs can be prevented . Several bureaus told how , in order to anticipate the shortage of seeds , they had last year selected large amounts of highly bred grain sorghums which are now being distributed to members . Meanwhile , all the bureaus are making seed surveys of their counties in order to locate available sources of seed and to estimate the amount needed by the farmers throughout the state . Dean Hunt , who recently spent considerable time studying the effect of the war on Canadian agriculture , told how the farmers of Canada since the war began have increased their production forty-six per cent even while one-fourth of the men of the country have been in the army or munitions . This remarkable showing , Dean Hunt says , was accomplished by eliminating unnecessary occupations and by working harder on the essential ones . The 145 delegates to t...
The Farmer aiid the Bond [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1918
The Farmer aiid the Bond IT ought not to require either argument or coaxing to cause a farmer to go the limit of his financial power in the purchase of Liberty Loan bonds . If there is a safe Investment in the world , it is these same bonds . If you have a few of them around the house , it is like having fifty and hundred dollar bills that draw interest . If you need a short loan at the bank , you on pin a Liberty Bond to your note as collateral and get the lowest rate of interest without having to hunt up an indorser . Everybody does his bit in the purchase of Liberty Bonds . There ought to be one bond , at the very least , in every farm home . No farmer is too poor to buy one . He may think he cant afford it , but he can . If he hasnt the money in hand , bis banker will show him how to buy one on easy payments—ra dollar down and a dollar every now and then . In fact , no farmer can afford to be without a Liberty Bond . This is our government and these are our bonds . We reserve th...

Countv Organization Helos COUNTY organization for the promotion of agriculture is extending rapidly .

It makes trade good , doubles up bank deposits , builds new churches and good roads and makes the community a better place in which . to live .

To Georgia Bankers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1918
To Georgia Bankers OUR experiences already have proven to us the importance of being selfsustaining . Unless we provide against it , there is not only possibility but probability that these experiences will be far more severe another winter than they are now . As a prominent citizen and banker of your community , I feel you can exert strong influence with the farmers of your section to this end . Thirty-cent cotton is a great temptation , but even dollarcotton wont buy food if It is not to be had . The recent coal situation is sufficient evidence of this . Let us as bankers , having the country s as well as the farmers interest at heart , give the farmer every assurance that we stand squarely back of him in his effort to meet the pressing food problem , in which is involved not only our own safety , but the winning of the war . —Frank Hawkins , President Third National bank , Atlanta , Georgia :

WE WILL LOSE THE WAR UNLESS- [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1918
WE WILL LOSE THE WAR UNLESS- Every American Realizes His Responsibility and Makes Sacrifices IF the war Is lost to the Allies , it will be the fault of the civil population of the United States . It will not be the fault of . the allied armies . It will not be the fault of the people of England , France , or Italy , nor yet of Canada . It will be the fault of the men , women , and the young people of the United States with whom the war has not as yet become a really serious question . It may as well be understood at once that this war cannot be fought as a side issue nor as an extra . If Americans insist upon living as they have always lived , denying themselves nothing but a few of the luxuries , then Geimany will win the war and America will pay taxes to the Kaiser . The supposition that the war is not to be a long one is not a fact to be counted on . It may be ended very quickly and , if so , it will be a victory for the Central Powers . The smug satisfaction of the American peop...

WHAT THE BANKER OUGHT TO KNOW [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1918
WHAT THE BANKER OUGHT TO KNOW How Knowledge of Local Agriculture Will Benefit Bank and Farmer By R . A . Blanchard Agriculturist , Livestock State Bank , Worth Portland , Oregon I THINK it was Garfield who referred to agriculture as the mother of all industries , and the maintainor of human life , and while the mere expression has been used by other men ever since Caesar implored the Romans to keep up their farms or Rome would fall , farming has been the fundamental occuj ation , the barometer on which all business depends . We talk a great deal In glowing terms in exaltation of the farmer , and have given but a shamefully small amount of our attention toward giving what assistance and help we can to this , our greatest business It usually takes a great effort , or a crisis , such as we are now experiencing , to bring home the importance of the biggest business in the world , regardless of wars , —the business of feeding ourselves . I have visited many bankers and found among them a...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1918
E XACTLY 3590 visitors came to the Commercial National bank , Raleigh , North Carolina , to see Lady Ursine , fullblooded Jersey , calf and her baby calf , who usurped the marble lobby of the bank . The bank cooperated with the state dairy agents to boost the family cow movement . Appropriate charts were displayed and literature distributed . One in every six farm families in the United States is cowless . A good average cow will produce enough milk and butter to pay for her feed and will show a profit of from $ 100 to $ 250 a year . When these facts were demonstrated , orders for more than a carload of Jersey cows were taken . The bank offered to loan 75 per cent of the purchase price of a cow to any purchaser if necessary .

TO FIGHT STARVATION [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1918
TO FIGHT STARVATION We Must Save Wheat—By the Food Administration DEMOCRACY in the United States is now undergoing a critical test . It is the test of voluntary sacrifice , tne placing of loyalty to the nations war program above the dictates of the palate . The recommendations and rulings of the Food Administration are based on accurate statistical information showing just how much and what kind of food there is in the world . Unrestricted submarine warfare has not yet brought England to her knees but the rate of sinkings has thus far exceeded the shipbuilding program . And ships which otherwise would have been used for carrying breadstuffs from South America to the Allies are still plying between North America and Europe . This route is only about half as long . As long as food conservation and increased production in North America can furnish cargoes for the food ships , Great Britain and France will be fed , and as long as they are fed , they will fight and in time , aided by the...
