The Agricultural Commission [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
The Agricultural Commission NO recognition could have been more gratifying to the members of the Agricultural Commission than that of the American Bankers association convention in passing legislation to make the Commission a permanent standing committee of the convention . Heretofore the Commission has been annually continued by vote . The chairman of the Commission has been made ex-offlcio a member of the executive council of the association . This change will undoubtedly make for greater efficiency on the part of the Commission . Charles A . Hlnsch , retiring president , who had constantly urged upon the bankers of America the importance of agriculture and their cooperation to make it more efficient , said in his annual report : The Agricultural Commission , under the leadership of its efficient Chairman , has rendered potential aid in stimulating an increased supply of farm products . The Banker-Farmer , official publication of the Commission , has taken a front rank among the m...
GET BEHIND THE FARMER [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
GET BEHIND THE FARMER Closer Cooperation Urged at Conference on Agriculture in Chicago IN the heart of a city of millions , miles from the open country , men from every state met to talk about a subject of vital concern to the nation—a subject hest expressed by a banner which looked down upon them . Upon the farmers of this country rests the fate of the war and the fate of the nation , said the banner , and the signature to this unequivocal sentence was that of the President of the United States . How they and those whom they represented could best cooperate with the farmers whose responsibility was so definitely stated hy the leader of the nation was what these men were there to talk about . For they were men who knew that they , too , had a responsibility in this matter—for they , far more than any other class , were in a position to help that the farmer might discharge the obligation so definitely charged upon him . They were bankers—bankers called to a conference by the Agricult...
CONSERVE WHEAT ? YES [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
CONSERVE WHEAT ? YES Dont Relax Efforts—By the Food Administration EVERY person in this country who raised wheat or saved wheat during the past year contributed to the weight of the blows which have forced the German retreat . American wheat preceded American troops to Europe and kept the Allied- armies in the field . Wheat from American farms still goes overseas and must continue to go in increasing amounts . We must send other foods also to the limit of our shipping capacity but let us constantly remember that wheat is the most palatable cereal grain and the one most needed by fighting men and by the war-weary populations of the Allies . Lately our railroads have been overburdened with wheat moving to market and our granaries in some localities are overflowing . But from an international point of view—the only safe one to take—the apparent surplus is first of all confined to limited areas of this country and , secondly , it is seasonal . This crop must feed many mouths for many mo...
BACKING THE SEED CORN DRIVE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
BACKING THE SEED CORN DRIVE How County Bankers Got Behind the Farm Bureau—By A . T . Kearney llfTT HERE can we get seed corn ? yy was the query that arose in the minds of thousands of fanners in western Pennsylvania last winter . Conditions in Clearfield county were especially bad . The season of 1917 had been very short and the small amount of corn that was ripe before the early September frost had a very high moisture content . Corn in this condition , unless carefully stored , would , of course , not stand the extremely low temperatures of early winter without a serious lowering of its vitality . Fifty samples of seed corn tested at State college showed an average germination test of only fifteen per cent . Consequently , the executive committee of the Clearfield County Farm Bureau realized very soon after the first of the year , that the greater part of the corn planted would have to be Imported . The seriousness of this condition was not to • be minimized . Imported seed is sel...
TO PULL ILLINOIS OUT OF THE MUD [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
TO PULL ILLINOIS OUT OF THE MUD How the State s Roads Will be Redeemed-r-If the People Say the Word T HEY are trying to yank Illinois out of the mud . What s more , they will succeed providing that the electorate of the state manifests ordinary gumption and horse-sense when it ballots in November . If the state displays this sagacity by authorizing the construction of a wonderful system of roads when the war is over , Illinois will be lifted out of the mud . Illinois , is in the mud just about half the year at a stretch and generally after any kind of a heavy rain . No driver of a motor leaves home without a prayer on his Hns and a complete set of chains and ropes under his back seat . Illinois mud has cost millions in dollars to the farmer whose grain could not he marketed when prices were highest . Illinois mud has heen a barrier against better rural education . Illinois mud has imprisoned the wives and daughters • of the farmer and prevented them from enjoying the richer , happie...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
that it is very considerable . It -is over 100 per cent and . then some . Not only would these roads be a benefit to the farmer from an economic standpoint , but they are of great value to him from an educational and social standpoint . If we ever have these roads , as I am sure we will , there will be an improved system ot schools in the country—especially outside the city—over what there is today . The little red school house with a dozen scholars ( I think there are some 800 in the state with less tjhan eight scholars ) , as well as the larger ones , will be consolidated into community schools , and . these schools being community schools made from consolidated districts will be stronger , and with the better corps of teachers you will be able to get will be much better . Your expense of running the school will be much lessened or at least not increased , and there will result a greatly increased Value in the training your children will get in those schools . The community school...
Land Must Yield [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
Land Must Yield LAND is the great source of the worlds power ; the real source of energy back of the world s armies and industries . Energy is after all the main thing , and now America and her Allies need every available unit . They need every acre of land . Not working listlessly , yielding pounds when it should yield tons , but working vigorously , yielding tons in place of pounds , —working every minute in season and at highest efficiency . This our country needs as never before it has needed anything . If the world is to be saved from starvation ; it liberty is to be preserved for America , then every acre of land must be enlisted . These are times of stern realities when land-slack-ing should no more be condoned than man-slacking . —Farm and Ranch .
Teachers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
Teachers WE call no uneducated quack or charlatan to perform surgery upon the bodies of our children lest they may be deformed , crippled and maimed physically all their lives . Let us take equal care that we entrust the development of the mental faculties to skilled instructors of magnanimous character and the mentalities of our children may not be mutilated , deformed and crippled to halt and limp through all the centuries of their never-ending lives . The deformed body will die , and be forever put out of sight under the ground , but a mind made monstrous by bad teaching dies not , but stalks forever among the ages , an immortal mockery of the divine image . —j . Sterling Morton . Wfiich way Is your school headed—up into direct service to the community , or down and out ?
WINDOW DISPLAYS IN A BIG CITY [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
WINDOW DISPLAYS IN A BIG CITY They Told Stories of Agriculture to the Metropolis By Comfort A . Tyler Commonwealth Savings Bank , Detroit , Michigan THE August issue of The BankerFarmer is before me . It seems to be an unusually strong number . The Item that attracts my attention at this moment is the last clause on the editorial page in which you ask , What have you done for agriculture ? Now , you might naturally think that a city bank located in the center of Wall street , in a . city of three-quarters of a million inhabitants , couldnt do much . As a matter of fact , we have made a considerable effort . About a year and a half ago we began putting in window displays . We have a very prominent window on one of the busiest of Detroit s busy streets that we use for this purpose . The window is sixteen feet long ; I have it boxed in two or three feet . We put in displays on Saturday afternoon and they remain one week . It is our object to feature Detroit industrials and Michigan agr...
MINNESOTA'S SCHOOLS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
MINNESOTAS SCHOOLS Consolidation Establishes Itself—By C . C . Swain M INNESOTA has 7 , 409 rural schools that enroll 215 , 427 pupils or onehalf of the elementary school population of the state . Approximately seventy per cent of the rural children do not go beyond the rural school . Coupled with this is the fact that Minnesota is an agricultural state and that our permanent source of wealth , comfort and progress is tied up very largely with the proper preparation of the boys and girls of the cpuntryside for efficient citizenship . Minnesotas greatest educational hope and venture is therefore the proper education of the farm boys and girls . The one-teacher rural school must be made more and more efficient . The betterment of these schools will continue so long as they exist apd it is quite certain that they will outlive this generation and the next . However , those who labor most for the betterment of the one-room rural school and at the same time have a vision of the demands th...
STUDENTS' LOAN FUND [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1918
STUDENTS LOAN FUND Washington Bankers Plans—By Thos . H . Brewer NEARLY all bankers have more or less experience in lending money . to young men and women to complete their college course . Many ambitious , worthy young people , who , if given a college education would make their mark in the world are denied this education because of lack of funds to pay their expenses while attending college . It is not always possible for students to get employment that will pay their expenses , nor is it always advisable because of the time it takes from the necessary study hours . Two years ago at a Montana bankers convention a fund was raised to funjsh money to the president of the University pf Montana to loan to worthy students , and it was felt by a number of the Washington bankers that their association could do nothing more practical or that would be of more lasting benefit than to raise a similar fund for similar purposes and turn it over to E . O . Holland , pres ident of fhe State Colle...

PEACE TALK—FOOD DANGER ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1918
PEACE TALK—FOOD DANGER ! WE SEEM TO BE IN for cm era of peace talk . The inevitable result , unless our people are warned , will be a relaxation in food produc- |||| I tion and conservation under the false belief that irhpendmg peace will llil put a / n end to our national food obligations . IIIN Should peace come tomorrow , the food obligations of America will be immensely increased rather than lessened . The withdrawal of Bulgaria from hostilities means four million more people clamoring to us for food and we should always be willing to exchange food for ihe tight | j kind of peace . 11 Besides Bulgaria , there are in Poland , the Balkans , parts of Bus- l sia and certain other portions of Europe a total of one hundred and j eighty million people threatened with starvation . At present we are ll unable to send them supplies , but with the coming of peace this huge population will be added immediately to America s food guardianship . 11 1 These stricken people , plus the Allies , r...
THE BANK-AGRICULTURIST ' S WORK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1918
THE BANK-AGRICULTURIST S WORK HoM It Hitches Farmer and Banker for Mutual Benefit—By Murray D . Lincoln WHEN no less a personage than President Wilson himself has said that on the farmers of this country rests the fate of the war and the fate of the nation , it does not seem out of place . for this section of the American Bankers association to give some time and thought to the problems of the farmer . Beset as the farmer is , with such problems as the high and unrestricted prices of all he has to buy , the fixing of the prices at which he must sell , the dearth and high price of labor , the inadequate transportation facilities and uncertain weather conditions , he has sufficient troubles witout having any curtailment of his credit in any way . And the problem of adequate re-financing his operations is one which requires the best thought and effort of our best financial minds . Needing food as we never have before , and with so much depending on food for the successful prosecution o...

"USE HOME PRODUCTS " [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1918
USE HOME PRODUCTS A Wisconsin Town Put This Into Effect ONE of the slogans of Uncle Sam s Food Administration uttered on its attractive posters in big , fat lower-case printing , has been Use Home Products . Many of us read the slogan , mentally indorsed the sentiment and then calmly went ou our way , without a thought as to what our home products were and how we should go about to use them . Uncle Sam s food Dosses—or rather leaders , as they probably prefer to be known—didnt spread that slogan the width and breadth of the land just for ornamental purposes , however . They knew that if more home products were used everybody would be benefited—local producers and consumers would be helped—transportation resources would be conserved—there would be no end to the benefits . They did more than merely read that slogan in one town , however . This was Oconomowoc , Wis . Its council of defense of patriotic , hard-headed bankers and other business men is on the job day in and out that the c...
PENNSYLVANIA BANKERS AT WORK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1918
PENNSYLVANIA BANKERS AT WORK Agricultural Activities Are Many—By C . G . McBride , State Club Leader THE bankers of Pennsylvania were quick to recognize the farm- bureau as a cooperator in the advancement of the financial interests of the community . The bureau , a youngster as institutions go , felt honored to be so recognized by the bankers and some effective team work has resulted . The first activity of the sort was between the local bank and the county farm bureau , but later the close relationship of the two institutions was recognized by the Pennsylvania Bankers association and Hon . L . T . McFadden , chairman of the committee on agriculture and education , appointed a banker on his committee for every county that had a farm bureau and urged this member to endeavor to line up the banking interests of the county with the agricultural program as laid down by the farm bureau . The cooperation of these bankers with the county agents has been all that could be desired in practica...
"As Seen By a Farm Editor , [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1918
As Seen By a Farm Editor , THE farm journals of the nation for the most part since its inception have realized the potentialities of bankerfarmer work und have welcomed the enlisting of the great army of bankers in the advance of agriculture . Thus it is pleasing but not surprising to note many comments on the part that agriculture played iu the convention of the American Bankers association . . That . the banker-farmer movement has assumed a historic place in American agriculture is the conclusion of the Breeders Gazette of Chicago whose editor was present at the conference of the Agricultural Commission . His editorial comment is of-interest tb every banker as a reflection of farm journal opinion on the activity of the banker and it is reprinted with the regret that only one of the present leaders in the work Is mentioned , for the present union of the forces of the bankers would not be possible without sincere and arduous efforts by all members of the Commission and state leaders...
