STRENGTHEN AT HOME [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1918

STRENGTHEN AT HOME Leadership is Needed—By U . S . Food Admistration FR four years war has turned oh all human affairs a brilliant and terrible light which relentlessly separates essentials from non-essentials . In those desolate regions where suffering has stripped life of everything but the fundamentals of existence , great leaders understand that no country is safe for democracy that fails to meet the simple human needs of the people . Not tariffs , nor boundaries , nor trade concessions , but food and clothing and shelter are the questions that demand the attention of these statesmen . War has spelled F O O D with capital letters , and reconstruction is branding it on every consciousness . Even war-crazed Germany realizes that this is the first question to be settled , and the soldiers and workmen s councils in most large cities are devoting their first efforts to organizing the food supplies , for well they know that famine means anarchy . America and the Allies fully realize t...

The New Job [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1918

The New Job IT TOOK a world war to arouse the . United States to a sense of its dependence upon agriculture . Production and conservation became more than empty words .

WHEN THE BANKER FARMS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1918

WHEN THE BANKER FARMS The Banker-Farmer Movement as It is Seen by a Big Newspaper T HERE was a time , and that not far s in the past , when the average j bankers relation to the average farmer was . . that of a fairly hardfisted :, *; money-lender , who scrutinized all SUCK ^* loans with extra care and let his interest ^? end there . In those days many farmers viewed bankers as their natural enemies and tried to avoid them whenever possible . Of course , exceptions existed on both sides , but in general farmers and bankers were not friendly cooperators . Once in a while some farmer-customer would fetch an extra tall stalk of corn to a local bank or bring a basket of fancy apples or potatoes to be displayed in the front window of the place where money was stored . But even in such cases , the financier s obligation was fulfilled by permitting the exhibit to remain on view a few days . -:. < :- In those days such an event as the distribution of young pigs in the tilefloored...

TO KEEP FARM BOOKS Ohio College and Bankers Unite—By R . F . Taber FOR a number of years the department of farm management and rural economics at the Ohio State University has been endeavoring to encourage better business methods on the farm . As a means to this end , accounting has been urged in order to enable the farmers to really know where the leaks in their business were and be enabled to take measures to stop them .

Here is an account of what one bank and one group of boys did . In Marshall county , Ky ., a young county agent opened his door and was ready for business on the 20 th day of April , 1917 . He found a county fragrant with the aroma of dark leaf tobacco . He found a county producing millions of pounds of tobacco ; less than enough corn to feed the work stock ; less meat than she consumed ; less than a car load of beef cattle in a year ; less than fifty acres of clover . An entire county , mind you , full ot reasonably intelligent farming people that had not fed in a sum-total one carload of cotton seed meal , linseed meal and tankage all combined in all the years that have passed .

MISSISSIPPI RESULTS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1918

MISSISSIPPI RESULTS Banker ^ Farmer Work Wins Out—By C . A . Cobb FOR the past several years Mississippi bankers have joined hands with the agricultural workers of the state , especially those of the State Agricultural college and Federal Department of Agriculture , and have done all In their power consistent with sound business to make every cultivated acre give its largest return . In some instances the bankers joined in this forward move because they foresaw in diversified farming the solution to most of our problems , and through the solution of these problems an era of prosperity ushered In upon a permanent basis . In other instances , they were driven by the ravages of the boll weevil to look to some other source than cotton for a living . By whatever means they have come to join in pushing forward these new agricultural ideas , they are enthusiastic and are now ready to help anywhere and at any time they may . At the present time sixty-six county demonstration agents are empl...

THE BANK'S "AG" MAN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1918

THE BANKS AG MAN Here s What His Job Is—By R . A . Blanchard F REQUENTLY in reading bankers journals and agricultural magazines one runs across an announcement of a bank-agriculturist just appointed or something he has done , and it comes to mind immediately what kind of an individual is this ? Bank and agriculture—what is the relationship ? Development of banking in the past century has been interesting indeed . The first bank of the United States organized in the nineteenth century was planned to stand close to the government in its relation with the public . Since that early attempt at government supervision , the banks , with a lot of set-backs , have finally advanced to their present position today . One who traces the history of the country cannot help but be impressed with the analogous condition in the growth of American agriculture . Appreciating the inseparable relationship between the prosperity of the country and the functions of the bank , the most progressive bankers ,...

A BIG JOB IN 1919-AND AFTER [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1919

A BIG JOB IN 1919-AND AFTER The Banker Must Not Relax His Licks for Agriculture-By Joseph Hirsch WHAT does the farmer need to make him prosperous ? A generous production of staple crops for market in addition to the production on his own farm of sufficient meat , vegetables , butter , eggs , poultry , fruits , preserves , etc . for his home consumption . Production of staple crops can be materially increased by proper methods of soil preparation and cultivation , by seed testing and use of selected seed , hy crop rotation and other methods , while the fertility of the soil should be increased by livestock farming . Having raised his crops , however , the farmer requires the assurance of a fair market price . The TJ . S . Bureau of Markets is doing a valuable work in this connection by its constant endeavor to bring the producer into closer contact with the consumer . Forward looking bankers must realize that the exploitation of farmers by unnecessary middle men must gradually cease ...

THE SOUTH'S ONE BEST BET [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1919

THE SOUTHS ONE BEST BET The Safe FarMng Slogan Sounds Just ids © boo * for 1919 as Ever Before AS I view the situation for another year I am unable to outline any plan that will be of more safe and sound value to the farmers of the South than by a continued diversification of crops . This being true , I am unabJe lu to . j » , see why a farmer can place himself in a more comfortable position as he plans his operations for another year than to be able to know beyond question of doubt that the safe and sound methods preached to him for the past four years be again followed . Food and feed for man and beast on every farm sounds just as good to me for 1919 as it did when first suggested in 1915 , and I propose to stand firmly and squarely on that dsctrine as the safe plan for another year . As to the best methods to employ for the success of this , we must rely on the experts in agriculture who have been leading us for the past few years , and who are now available to every agricultural...

THE BANK ' S PIG CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1919

THE BANK S PIG CLUB Ready for the pig club show at Humboldt , Tenn IM March I was appointed county agent for Gibson county , Tenn ., and was instructed to emphasize the pig club work as one means of stimulating increased hog production . I found that no pig club work had ever been done in the county and was thus handicapped to this extent in getting it started . I found that some banits of the county were willing to finance the boys and girls , but in one or two communities I found the manager extremely anxious and active in conducting a club for the boys and girls in the vicinity of the bank . At the Peoples bank of Humboldt , I found that about fifteen had signed up to join the club and in just a few days about twenty-five members had been secured , thus giving a good sized club in that section of the county . These members were loaned money by the bank at a very low rate of interest and were allowed to buy grade pigs owing to the fact that it was the first endeavor and that we ha...

I One of those policies is that our schools shall be made to more completely serve America as a Nation . The other policy is that the lands of this country shall not lie unused . Both may be included in the broader meaning of the word Americanization —for one makes for the development of more helpful American citizens , and the other makes for the development of more serviceable American acres . For the intensification and extension of these two policies I would make earnest appeal that the high adva...
