A SQUARE DEAL FOR DAIRYMEN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1918
A SQUARE DEAL FOR DAIRYMEN What Organization Meant for California Milk Producers—By J . M . Henderson THE Sacramento bank for the past fifty years has been a large lender of money on farming property situated in all parts of the Sacramento Valley , and the San Joaquin Valley , of California . In recent years I have noticed a gradual deterioration of actual prosperity among the farmers and most particularly among the dairy farmers of California . Naturally , it became my business to find the reasons and to determine a remedy . Agriculture is the foundation of all business . A prosperous agricultural community makes a prosperous state and nation ; conversely , a poverty-stricken rural community makes a poverty-stricken nation . There are so many definitions of prosperity it may be well to define it for this article . My definition of prosperity is what anyone would consider the fundamentals of contentment : a reasonable amount of work ; a reasonable amount of recreation ; and a reason...
YOUR RURAL CHURCH [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1918
YOUR RURAL CHURCH Is It Doing Its Part ?—By O . F . Hall THE average rural church building is no more capable of meeting modern needs than are the old ox cart and the spinning wheel . There are too many communities in Indiana today where an unpainted , unattractive box-like structure , with an unsightly interior , and equipped with a dilapidated pulpit and a score or more of hard benches—all the same height—pass for a church . And it not infrequently happens that many of the men and women who use these make-believe churches for a place of worship own large farms worth upwards of $ 200 an acre , have modern homes , dress in up-to-date clothes , ride up and down improved highways in large touring cars , and send their children to town or consolidated schools which represent an outlay , of tens A community Congregational church This church , at Franklin , Indiana , was formed by the union of the Methodist , Protestant , Baptist and Presbyterian churches , the Presbyterian not as an org...

GEORGIA ' S ANTI-TICK DRIVE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1918
GEORGIA S ANTI-TICK DRIVE To Save the State an Annual Loss of Fifteen Million Dollars-By F . H . Abbott AT a large gathering of farmers , bankers , educators and school children and patrons of Wayne county , Georgia , at Jesup , the county seat , in August , Better Livestock Day was observed in a manner signifying an epoch in the commercial development and rural progress of the coastal plains section of Georgia . It marked the beginning of the last step of an intensified and unique educational campaign by the Georgia Land Owners association , the goal of which is the development of the livestock industry in the state to a point commensurate with latent possibilities and the immediate objective of which is the eradication of the Texas fever cattle tick—the main deterrent to cattle raising throughout the South—which is laying an estimated toll on the cattle industry of Georgia of $ 15 , 000 , 000 a year . The feature of this celebration was the formal presentation by the association o...
USE THE BANK LOBBY [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1918
USE THE BANK LOBBY Agricultural Displays Succeed—By R . A . Blanchard OF all various buildings in town the architecture of the bank stands out distinctive , dignified , impressive and a thing of beauty . The building , of course , provides the home for the bank , and a place to work , but its architecture has been designed partly from precedence and custom , but largely as another case of bank advertising . The psychological impression of marble slabs , mahogany furniture , steel doors , etc ., instill in the customer s mind a feeling of confidence and safety in the strength of the bank he is dealing with . Too often the cold exterior becomes none the less warm inside , and I have often thought that its very austere impressiveness has permeated the employees within . An air of cheerfulness and friendliness is like a breeze on the spring air . Warm up , be human would be an excellent motto for many a bank officer , and bring its reward as well . The lobby , by the custom of the years...

TRAINS FARM LABOR [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1918
TRAINS FARM LABOR Pennsylvania s Plan Helps—By E . C . Sparks Military drill helps to harden the boys in the school LAST spring the attempt to supply the shortage in farm labor by recruiting city boys resulted in some success but many failures due to lack of training on the part of the boys in the elements of farm and garden labor . It was as unfair to the city boy as to send a country lad to be a bank messenger in a city without some degree of training . To overcome this difficulty and to make the farmer and truck gardener more favorably Inclined toward boy labor , the Public Safety Committee of Pennsylvania , in cooperation with the Pennsylvania State College is sending four contingents of 300 boys each , to spend ten days at the college in learning simple chores of agricultural life . The boys are selected by the principals of city high schools and receive transportation and subsistence while at the college . They are housed in tents and fed in the college commons . Uniforms and ...

THE BANKER AND AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
THE BANKER AND AGRICULTURE The Great Service He Can Render in This Fateful Hour of Our History By Dr . Clarence Ousley Assistant Secretary of Agriculture A T the outset I wish to acknowledge the great service rendered to agriculture by bankers generally In the agricultural regions of the United States , and especially to the Agricultural Commission of the American Bankers association and the agricultural committees of the several state bankers associations . I shall speak later somewhat in detail of these services . I wish first tp get Into our minds the background of the common obligation , not to say the imperious necessity of greater effort to stimulate agriculture and to hearten producers . War experiences are reminding us of elemental things which many of the elders had forgotten and many of the middle-aged and the young never knew . Among them is the fact that wealth as represented in the commodities of industry , and money as the measure of wages and income , derive their pri...
