Cooperation in Highway Construction [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

Cooperation in Highway Construction By E . W . James V . S . Department of Agriculture THE relations ot the banker and farmer should be amicable and mutually helpful . At many points their interests become identical and their efforts should be directed toward the same ends . In the ordinary rural county , the banker is helpful largely as a provider for the construction of public works of funds secured by bond issues . The principal public works so financed in most counties comprise the county highways and bridges . In addition to the proceeds of bonds for highway purposes , there Is annually expended in the United States a huge road fund from the county revenues . The total in some years amounts to over 160 million dollars . While lt Is impossible to Judge accurately what proportion of this Is expended without adequate supervision , an approximate estimate can . be made by totaling the funds known to be expended In counties that employ no skilled supervision at all . Nearly one-half...

Oklahoma Needs Cooperation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

Oklahoma Needs Cooperation By H . W . Moorhouse Oklahoma Agricultural College I HAVE been asked what I consider the paramount problems ot agriculture and rural life in Oklahoma . Every problem is paramount . Is it not , depending on the point ot view ? Less tenancy , moderate Interest rates ; better roads , more cooperation , seem to be vitally Inter-related and equally essential to rural progress . If roads were Improved , social life would develop , community cooperation would spring up , education thrrce , farming prosper , new people would be attracted , new wealth created , still better roads built , and the whole process would proceed In enlarging circles . Likewise , we might start with cooperation , and show how that is the basis for better roads , for more education , for better farming , and the entire rejuvenation of rural life and business ; Or we could say that moderate interest rates which bring sufficient capital within easy reach wlU make farming efficient , will giv...

' ¦ ; * 3 Cheapening Farmers' Credits [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

¦ ; * 3 Cheapening Farmers Credits The New York Times in referring editorially to State and Federal legislative disposition to facilitate rural credits , spoke In this wise : It Is worth noting that while these movements of legislation are under consldreation the chief lenders to the farmers are discussing the subject from another point of view .- Instead ot being organized by officials , or laws , the Farm Mortgage Bankers Association organized itself In this city last week , and incidentally disclosed what was wrong with their business from the point of view of practical and experienced lenders . They are asking rather for the repeal of old laws than for the enactment of new laws . The greatest difficulties in the way of easy credits for farmers are the laws passed by farmers legislatures for the assistance of farmers . Mr . Robins , Chairman of the Associated Mortgage Investors Association ot Rochester , summarized some of these obnoxious statutes . Among them , are laws forbiddi...

Toward Better Things [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

Toward Better Things THE last legislature of Massachusetts passed a law under which every incorporated city in the state must adopt a city plan . This is by far the most complete and radical action yet taken on the subject anywhere—Just as the Old Bay State is at once the most conservative and one ot the most radical communities in the country . THE three successful conferences of rural social workers at the College of Agriculture , Cornell university , Inaugurated in response to a demand for a- training school of this character , have led to the establishment ot the School for Leadership In Country Life as a part of the regular work of the cpllege . Plans are completed tor the fourth conference to be held June 23 to July 3 ; 1914 . C OUNTRY store keeping is to be taught in one of Kansas educational institutions , probably the Kansas State Agricultural College at Manhattan , according to an announcement of the state board of administration .

Hogging Down Corn—A Good Way of Harvesting and Marketing [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

Hogging Down Corn—A Good Way of Harvesting and Marketing SOMETIME since the Prairie- Farmer gave this , valuable -set of figures largely from the Iowa Experiment Stations experience with reference to the profit in hogging down corn , especially when a balanced ration was fed . We reproduce from their story as follows : In addition to the Iowa Station experiments further evidence has been added by letters from nearly 200 farmers representing all sections of the state . Out of these farmers , only one reported unfavorable results from the practice ; while 92 . 8 per cent reported excellent results . The most Important fact brought put by the- experience of these farmers and the experiments at Ames is that corn must be supplemented with some protein food for best results ; . Pastures of alfalfa , red clover , rape , or . bluegraSs adjoining the corn : field furnish cheap supplemental feed , and if allowed ready access from one : field to the other the pigs will balance their own ration...

Problems of Louisiana [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

Problems of Louisiana . ByH . D . Apgar . President Louisiana Blinkers Association THE enactment ot the tariff law has thrown our friends of South- Louisiana into a period ot depression , as did the damaging rains in the early fall , confronts , us of . the north with , a problem , the like of which has never before existed . But in these disasters , as with the boll weevil , we see a new hope . Diversification . We can no longer depend on the one , crop for money . The expansion ot the industries , of this state makes it imperative that we diversify . In this connection I . wish to call attention to the adaptability of this . country as a successful stock growing center . Whenever the farmers raise their own stock , and thereby keep at home the many thousands of dollars . annually sent out for stock , then the problem-will be half solved . There is a very noticeable curtailment in all lines of endeavor , and a period of retrenchment is an absolute necessity . The farmers of our sta...

The Home Town [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

The Home Town THE mail-order house couldnt hurt this town without help . It is the fellow here who patronises it that la the * towns real enemy . GREAT cities give much in alms , but little in Justice . Only as we know each other well can we treat each other Justly ; and the city is a wilderness ot careless strangers whose Instincts of humanity are dally becoming more and more blunted to suffering , because in the nature of things suffering in cities must be impersonal . It Is not the suffering of friends and neighbors and kith and kin as It is In the smaller towns . So the mall order house crushing out our towns Is drying up the milk of human kindness In our hearts . —William , Allen White .

- < M > The Rural Credit Status [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1914

- &amp;lt; M &amp;gt; The Rural Credit Status ( Continued from Page 3 ) out of . the- general fund of the United States Treasury . The Democratic caucus , after the appearance of-the Bulkley bill , excluded rural credit legislation ot any kind from the programme of what remains of this session , and the reason for that it la said In Washington , was that the President and all others opposed to direct State aid feared that if the Bulkley bill came before Congress It would have a greased passage . The situation is complicated by politics . Nothing would please . the farmer so much as money out of the treasury ; and the Democrats who are up for re-election this Fall believe that the Bulkley bill would win back the rural vote that Is supposed to have been alienated by the tariff revision . It is a curious fact that when agriculture in this country was really prostrate , twenty-five years ago , owing , to the great over-production of foodstuff , so that corn was burned for fuel b...

Creating Bank Business--and Confidence--by Advertising NOT long ago the city of St. Paul had to have some money . Just at that time the bond market was slower than sorghum in January and St Paul didn't want her credit advertised the wrong way . Within three months a much larger city had been forced to raise the rate Most banks confine their use of printer's ink to announcements about as live and attractive as undertakers' cards-mere statements of figures flanked by a row of names which may or may not mean something to the reader . A few have cut the apron strings of custom and use advertising space in such a way as to help their communities as well as themselves. In this article an observer of wide experience In the publicity field briefly and pointedly reviews the situation , and passes out some facts which ought to furnish thought-food for a good many among those who control the nation's credit.

Wanted ! Your Opinion THE BANKER - FARMER is the result of voluntary , unpaid work on the part of the Agricultural Commission , many contributors , the editor and others . Appropriations from the American Bankers' Association and some thirty state associations barely cover the cost of printing and postage. There is no reason for continuing this effort and expense unless the service really is wanted and is bringing results . We would like to see it pay its way . Under no circumstance could THE BANKER -FARMER be continued beyond November , 1914, unless those in charge can be partly relieved by employing help . THEREFORE--the question is up to YOU--and some 20,000 others . lst--Do YOU think it worth while to continue THE BANKER-FARMER ? 2nd--If it were enlarged and broadened and improved by adding writers of real ability to its staff, would you feel disposed to subscribe for it and pay from fifty cents to a dollar per year ? 3rd--What criticism , or suggestions have you to make on the ...
