WE HAVE GOT TO STRIPFOR WAR [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1918
WE HAVE GOT TO STRIPFOR WAR The Banker s Duty is Unselfish Service In This Crucial Hour WE have got to . strip ror war as England , France , Italy , and Belgium have stripped . We cannot win the war and maintain peace-time habits and conveniences . We cannot win the war with an army and a navy alone . We cannot win it with crops growing in the field and unharvested . We cannot win it by depending upon the men , women , and children who are now on the farms and-who are working from daylight to black dark . We are going to win the war because we must win it . The Government will secure food to feed the armies and the civil populations behind the armies , for unless those populations are maintained their men cannot fight . The farmers are going to feed themselves , and the city consumers will do well to take some concern for their own sustenance . There is no single force so potential , so influential , so efficient in establishing a proper appreciation of agriculture , in leading publ...
TO STABILIZE THE COTTON CROP [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1918
TO STABILIZE THE COTTON CROP Government Standards and Licensed Warehouses Will Help By Charles J . Brand Director V . S . Bureau of Markets THE bank s first customer that morning was a cotton grower and he carried in his hand as he entered the bank a slip of paper . He passed it - through the window and asked for $ 500 . Without question the teller , after reading the paper , made the loan . The paper was a warehouse receipt for twenty bales of good middling cotton , inch staple , Government standards , issued earlier that morning by a licensed warehouse manager . From the bank the cotton grower went down the street and settled his account with the general store , receiving a discount for cash . Then he bought a daily paper and turned to the markets page to see how cotton was selling on the spot markets . For the next few months , or perhaps for the next year , he would follow these quotations and then sell when the price suited him . All this happened in nineteen and—well , anyway ...

BANKING AND SHEEP GROWING [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1918
BANKING AND SHEEP GROWING An Address to North Carolina Bankers—By R . S . Curtis of the State College IF I were to undertake to name another industry comparable to banking it would be difficult to find one as closely allied as sheep growing . This fact is established in my reason for appearing before this body to ask for the moral and financial support of bankers to give farmers in sheep growing the same protection which bankers enjoy . That is , protection by law from burglary which may be very appropriately applied to the ravages of the dog on sheep flocks . It is a war measure to protect our flocks of sheep and induce others to enter into the industry . This can be done by controlling the dog and at the same time aid in other industries as well as help in food conservation . For example , you will in all probablity be convinced that the State Laboratory of Hygiene at Raleigh is visited daily by small children as well as grown people to take the Pasteur treatment because they have...

C , has brought in more than two carloads of purebred Jerseys for family cows NO more important and patriotic work is being done in North Carolina than that of the National Bank of Granville to put a good family cow in a majority of country homes . W . T . Yancy , cashier , took the unsecured notes of farmers to permit them to purchase twenty-four pure bred Jersey milk cows and another carload is soon to be delivered . Granville county is . one of the oldest and leading tobacco producing counties and the farmers have , therefore , become ardent tobacco growers to the exclusion of practically every other crop that would aid in the up-building of their land or in its permanent fertility . Mr . Yancy foresaw that the loss of fertility and consequent decrease in tobacco production , and that the increase in the amount of money being sent out of the county to pay its food bill would cause a corresponding decrease in the deposits i...
