EXTENSION WORK , NORTH AND WEST [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1919

EXTENSION WORK , NORTH AND WEST THE Office of Extension Work North and West carries on in coopera- . tion with the state agricultural colleges four main lines of work : ( 1 ) county agent work , ( 2 ) boys and girls club work , ( 3 ) home demonstration work and ( 4 ) farm management demonstrations . In county agent work we have about 1 , 200 counties organized , in about fourfifths of the agricultural counties and nine-tenths of the agriculture of the northern and western states . Bankers and business men have cordially supported this financially and morally and we hope this may be continued , especially moral support . At the outset business men and the Government were the most active factors in the organization of farm bureaus . Farmers could not believe that business men were helping finance this movement from purely philanthropic purposes and business men graciously dropped Into the background but continued their support but more indirectly . Farmers began giving more active sup...

THE CONTROL OF ANIMAL DISEASES [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1919

THE CONTROL OF ANIMAL DISEASES I HAVE had an opportunity to become acquainted with the bankers activities in various localities and from these experiences I am able to appreciate more fully the relation of the banker to the molding of public sentiment as well as to the industry and thrift of the community in which he lives and works . In 1914 this country was visited with foot and mouth disease , the most dreadful of animal plagues . This outbreak was the most serious and extensive that has occurred in this country . It appeared in a densely populated livestock community in the Central West and ., By J . R . Mohler Chief , Bureau of Animal Industry spread from there -with alarming rapidity .

It had appeared in tne Chicago Stock Yards , on the ranches of Kansas and Montana , and had been carried to both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts . The country was confr...

THE LAND AND THE LEASING SYSTEM [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1919

THE LAND AND THE LEASING SYSTEM What the Late Henry Wallace Told the 1915 Banker-Farmer Conference ONE problem in which every man , woman and child in the United States is deeply interested , whether he lives In country , town or city is the maintenance of the fertility of the soil . It is from the soil that our people must lor the most part be fed and clothed . The production of food and material for clothing are largely measured by fertility . It is more important now to maintain our fertility than ever before . As a nation we owe it to ourselves and to posterity to become more nearly self-sustaining both in food , clothing and manufactured products . If we are not to be dependent on other nations for goods , we must increase and develop largely our manufactures , and this will draw more and more heavily on the products of the soil for food . We have for the last two hundred years been simply skimming the cream off our soils ; mining them , so to speak , and selling them piecemeal...

THE PROBLEM OF SOIL FERTILITY [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1919

THE PROBLEM OF SOIL FERTILITY Reasons Why We Dare Not Postpone Considering It—By E . Davenport S PEAKING broadly , the lands of Ameriqi have been producing crops for from one-half to three-quarters ot a century , and contrary to popular belief , under conditions that have rapidly depleted the fertility with restoration only here and there under special conditions . We have developed a continent and paid the bills out of its virgin fertility . The day of reckoning is at hand . Our farms are not for the most part river valleys overflowed and fertilized by the wash from above . They are high-lying lands and are losing fertility not only by cropping but by denudation . Even our goodly prairie lands are subject to wash ; some states , like Illinois , to the extent of twenty per cent of the total surface . This problem of restoration of fertility must be met ; we dare not postpone it . Yet of all citizens the farmer Is least interested , and if he is to move in the matter he must have bot...

THE CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1919

THE CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL All aboard for home after a happy day In an Indiana consolidated school Forty Per Cent of the Children of Indiana Attend One—By Horace Ellis FOR generations there has stood on countless crossroad corners a noble Institution . It is the one-room school . It has served its purpose and served it well . It is time-honored , venerated and respected . For generations the boys and girls who gathered there received the very best education which was available and the very best which their parents could afford to give them . But New occasions teach new duties , and with the rapid increase in population bringing more complex social- problems to be solved , it was felt that in some way the one-room school was not discharging fully the obligation which it owed to the boys and girls of the community . More and more insistent the public became that the schools of the land should function more efficiently and more definitely in their relation to the school children . More an...

BETTER BULLS . BUCKS AND BOARS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1919

BETTER BULLS . BUCKS AND BOARS That is the Slogan of a Progressive Bank in the Central Oregon Country By R . A . Ward THE prosperity of the Central Oregnu country depends on the breeding of better livestock than has been carried on the ranges and ranches of the country in the past . The First National bank of Bend has recognized this fact and has been inaugurating a number of constructive agricultural campaigns for the purpose of fostering the breeding and feeding of better livestock . The first campaign had for its object the increase in alfalfa acreage of the Central Oregon Country . Every winter thousands of sheep and cattle are fed out in the Deschutes Valley and the only limitation on this industry in the past has been the securing of sufficient hay to care for all the stock . The irrigated ranches of the valley when seeded to alfalfa are worth from $ 100 to $ 150 per acre , while in an uncleared state , or seeded only to grain crops , their value does not exceed from $ 60 to $...
