The Spirit of 1918 [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1918

The Spirit of 1918 AS long as men go to the front at the risk of being shot says Lloyd H . Nelson , a New Jersey farmer , it is clearly my duty to risk all I possess . It is my duty to take a full risk in planting as many extra acres as my means will permit . This I am doing in 1918 . Having leased two extra farms , I propose making this year the supreme effort of my life . If I make a good profit , it will be fully earned . But if I make expenses and produce four times as much food as last year , It will he my opportunity to give strength—to give courage to help win . I am planning to farm to the extreme limit .

WOMEN AGENTS IN WAR—AND PEACE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

WOMEN AGENTS IN WAR—AND PEACE What They Mean tothe FarmWbmim arid the Nation—ByClarenceDuBose WHEN a mountaineer moonshiner converts his pet private distillery into a home canning outfit it may be said , with all modesty of statement , that the demonstration work of the woman agent in that county is remarkably successful . Well , that exact ransformation was wrought in a certain place . Bygones being bygones , there s no need of too much precision about . locations . At any event , there was a little girl in a remote region into whose lonely life very little of inspiration or assistance or stimulus to ambition had ever come—until a woman agent was placed in that county and began , among other things , the organization of girls canning clubs . The shy little girl ot the mountains enrolled and in due time became one of the most proficient of the members . Ono day the woman agent visited the cabin—which was a dreadfully difficult place to get to as the revenuers had found—and was surpr...

UNCLE SAM'S JOB [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

UNCLE SAMS JOB He Will See It Through—By Arthur Capper , Governor of Kansas I COME here to thank the bankers of Kansas for the fine patriotic service they have given in the Third Liberty Bond campaign just closed . Kansas has gone over the top in a big way , and the bankers are entitled to great credit for the fine showing . For the last thirty days we have all been worried about the war . The developments in the German offensive on the west front have made the whole Nation uneasy . In one small sector 447 of our own men were killed , wounded or taken prisoner . But now that our entire force of fighting men on that front has become a part of that wall of steel which stands between us and the horrors Europe , has suffered , we dont know what morning , or what day , we shall find all one side of our daily newspapers filled with the names of our own men who have gone down—fighting to tbe last— to save us from such a fate . We know the fate of the world is being decided—our own future i...

THE SEASON'S OUTLOOK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

THE SEASONS OUTLOOK Kansas Takes Stock of What Has Been Done and What It Hopes to Do WE are in the midst of the second cropping season following our entrance into the war and it is an appropriate time to take stock of what we have done and what we hope to do . Farmers everywhere responded splendidly to the call upon them and planted the largest acreage in the history of the country , produced and harvested record crops of most products except wheat , and succeeded in increasing the number of livestock , including not only work animals , but meat and milk animals . The total acreage planted to food crops in the United States in 1917 was ten per cent greater than the acreage in 1916 , and fifteen per cent greater than the average for the five years preceding the outbreak of the European war . Of corn , oats , barley , buckwheat , and Irish and sweet potatoes , record crops were harvested , the total production including spring wheat and rice being twenty-six per cent more than in 1916...

COMMUNITY WAR UNITS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

COMMUNITY WAR UNITS Self Defense is National Defense—By the V . S . Food Administration TO America , remote from threat of invasion , the flag has been a beautiful symbol floating over a great dome in a splendid city— Our Capital . The average mans connection with national politics was once about as vague as his connection with international affairs . Since 1914 . however , we have lived a hundred years in thought , and we are growing internationally-minded as well as nationally-minded . This is everybody s war and each man who is alert to the great hour regards himself as a definite military unit . The war is being fought not only by the men at the front , but by all the workers behind the lines—every man and woman , every boy and girl . Each community thus becomes our country and the flag is planted in the center of the town , to be defended by old and young alike . This defense means far more than subscriptions to Liberty Loans and Red Cross membership . It means community prepar...

Bulletin Board Helps [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

Bulletin Board Helps THIS spring we addressed a letter to every farmer in our business territory requesting that each give us a list of any kind of seed he had on hands for sale , to which we received a generous response . These seed lists so received were tabulated and placed on our bank bulletin board for the free use of all . The results obtained have been very satisfactory , and to our own knowledge these bulletins have been the means of the sale and exchange by our farmers of several hundred bushel of seed of different kinds . Not only did the farmers list seed for sale , but several of them included livestock , for which they also found ready buyers . In short , we have made our bank a sort of clearing house for the farmer . Next year we expect to begin- earlier in the season and develop this work on a much larger ; scale . —O . A . Young , cashier , Peoples State bank , Moran , Ka & sas .

SPEEDING UP THE NORTH-WEST [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

SPEEDING UP THE NORTH-WEST Team Work Betweenthe Bank-Agriculturist and Bankers—rByRxA . Blanchard THE Livestock State Bank of North Portland , Oregon , is the first bank of the Pacific North-West to employ an agricultural man on its staff . The work took its inception at the organization of this bank , which is a new institution with its birthday in June , 1917 . The credit for such a policy as this is due to the officers who have appreciated the value of this type of service . C . B . Swift , assistant cashier , observed the results of a bank-agriculturist in a conservative , old New England town in Massachusetts , and was convinced that it was built upon a sound basis . T . J .

BANK SEED CORN WORK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

BANK SEED CORN WORK Left—The storage rack , capacity 2400 ears ; right—The germinating rack and boxes , capacity twenty-four boxes each holding kernels from 100 ears FOR some time past we have been testing seed corn for the farmers of our community and since we have just about completed that work for this season it may be of interest to you to learn of conditions as we have found them . In our work we used the saw-dust box method . The boxes being 21 feet by 21 feet by 4 feet , inside measurements , and divided into 100 squares each by a small copper wire which was placed about three-quarters of an inch below the top of the box . The corn was placed in the rack in sections , each holding onehundred ears during the test . The 100 ears corresponded to the 100 squares in the box , thus making it exceptionally easy to identify the ears which grew perfectly , as well as the dead ones or any variations between these two conditions . In our work we used five kernels from each ear and any e...

Rural Education [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1918

Rural Education IS the movement to improve rural education and give the boys and girls of the open country their rightful chance to be permitted to break down because of the war ? This must not happen , yet there is grave danger . The U . S . Bureau of Education sees this danger . It is pointing out that England and Canada are appropriating more money for education than they did previously to the war . The consolidated school , experience has shown , is the best way to give rural education what it needs . It has stood the test . Where communities have tried it , they have never been willing to return to the old system . Uncle Sam s worst habit is locking the door after the horse is stolen . He is likely to do this in education . The U . S . Bureau of Education believes that federal and state aid should be given to extend the consolidated school system . It also believes that the bankers of the United States can do a lot right at this time to make sure that rural education does not r...
