THE "PEANUT"BANK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

THE PEANUTBANK WHAT seems like misfortune may be the stepping stone to fortune . For example : The lamentations that came up from the South for years , owing to the destruction wrougnt by the boll weevil , were loud and long . The land of cotton was facing ruin . The insidious insect was boring into tne cotton bolls from Texas to the Atlantic and the farmers were helpless . Science was besought to do its utmost to check the ravages of the pest . Science tried and failed . Now the agriculturists and business men of Coffee county , Alabama , are contributing to a $ 3000 fund to raise a monument in the public square at Elba , the county seat , in honor of the boll weevil . The reason ? Peanuts . Coffee county still raises cotton , not so much as in former years , but in addition to cotton , the planters raise goobers and the humble goober brings more profit , they say , than cotton in that particular part of Alabama . Although Alabama leads the nation in peanut production , its land de...

BACKUP THE COUNTY AGENTS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

BACKUP THE COUNTY AGENTS Office day finds work stacked up— But the agent always stops for a conference This farmer is getting help on barn plans A COUNTY agent in every agricultural county in the United States is a banker-farmer slogan that should not be forgotten , despite the great advance made in expanding the system . There are still agricultural counties where the influence of the agent has not reached ; there are others where the agent has not had the right kind of support . The banker can help to bring an agent to his county and he can help to sea that the agent has a chance to make good . There should be no effort to impose an agent upon the farmers . Instead there should be a sentiment among sufficient leading farmers to insure that there will be cooperation when an agent is obtained . But the banker can do a great deal toward inspiring sentiment for an agent . Some bankers have taken parties of farmers on jaunts to other counties where they have had an opportunity to see t...

His associates , regretting his loss , congratulate him on his honor of becoming a representative from Ohio to the executive council of the American Bankers association .

The Commission will always consider that it can call upon Mr . Sams for assistance , knowing that his efforts will be generously given .

CLEAR THINKING ON AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

CLEAR THINKING ON AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS No Strike on the Farm By Prof . O . I . Christie WE must not have a strike upon the farms . It is simply up to us to have all the farmers join together and go ahead , because these people must be fed , because our farmers are back of the feeding of this nation , and helping to feed others . I believe the farmers -will be treated fairly , and I believe . that if the farmers can see this , and will work together , we are going to have fair treatment for them , and I believe that they are going to be willing to take a part in this readjustment , and that they are going to have a fair return upon all they do . I know that you bankers consult with the farmers of your various communities every day , and I know that you can render a wonderful service in bringing the farmer to see things in their true light . While there is agitation , while there is radicalism , while there are all kinds of stories going through your communities , I know that we can ...

KENTUCKY'SCOMMUNITY MEETINGS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

KENTUCKYSCOMMUNITY MEETINGS How the Bankers of the Blue Grass State Helped Bring a Great Inspiration THE old-fashioned tight-fisted , hard-as-nails banker will soon be an extinct animal in the United States . At least the writer believes this will be the case from what he saw of the wonderful cooperation the Kentucky Bankers association rendered in a campaign of Farmers Community Meetings which reached forty-two counties in Kentucky last summer . But he had better begin at the beginning of the story of these unique meetings . Last January the State Development Committee of the Board of Trade of Louisville , Kentucky , decided to launch a series of three-day Farmers Community Meetings in tents . The idea behind this movement was to create a greater interest in better schools , saner homes , finer roads , greater health , purer stock and more modern methods of farming . It was believed that this could be accomplished because the war had left everybody more or less open-minded and will...

STEPS IN RURAL EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

STEPS IN RURAL EDUCATION What the States Are Doing to Give the Farm Children a Square Deal PROGRESS in rural education throughout the nation while not decisive nor marked by any great idvance in any one phase , has been continuous in a variety of activities . The war emergency has emphasized the educational requirements of modern agricultural communities and has accentuated the marked weakness in our rural school system . The general public is realizing the necessity of reorganization of the provisions made for education in the country . The problem of education in rural communities has attained too great a magnitude to be left entirely to purely local control and support . A larger unit of administration , preferably the county unit , with modifications which adapt it to local conditions , state cooperation and financial aid for the development of rural education are reforms rapidly materializing in many states . During the year New Mexico adopted the county unit for all school pur...

The Rural School Problem—the Greatest [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

The Rural School Problem—the Greatest By the V . S . Bureau , of Education DR W . C . BAGLEY , of Teachers college , declared before the Rural Section of the Department of Superintendence at Chicago , 1919 , that the greatest problem in American education today is the Rural School Problem . He said it is more than that . It is the fundamental problem in American life . Dr . L . D . Coffman , dean Teachers college , University of Minnesota , says that the rural school situation in the United States is a tragedy . According to the Hon . N . C . Macdonald , former state superintendent of public instruction in his last state school report from North Dakota , only thirty per cent of all farm pupils in that state , obtain an elementary education while 86 per cent of all city pupils obtain an elementary education ; only four per cent of all farm pupils obtain a high school education in North Dakota while 29 per cent of all city pupils obtain a high school education .

What Indiana Can Do [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

What Indiana Can Do THE agricultural committee of the Association has confined its work quite largely to cooperative effort with the various commissions created and operating under national direction and similar committees appointed by the governor to encourage conservation and production . The chairman of this committee was secretary of the Indiana Food committee . While this is very well and in no way to be discouraged , I am of the opinion , however , that we should carry out a more distinctive constructive program of our own very soon . The chairman of this committee is of the same opinion and it is due to no lack of interest or enthusiasm on his part that this has not been done . We have again been forced to limit the activities of this committee because our funds would not permit us to do otherwise . The banking and farming interests are so closely interwoven in every community in the state that our mutuality Of interests should be thoroughly recognized . The farmers are devel...

THE BANKER'SGREAT CHANCE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

THE BANKERSGREAT CHANCE When He Serves Agriculture , He Serves Himself as Well—By A . J . Bill THE banker has a peculiar relation to the farmer , to his prosperity , and to his permanent prosperity , —something beyond that of the other business men of the town . He not only gets the farmer s deposit when there is any surplus , but he loans to the farmer when he lacks money , and discounts the farmers paper . Whether the banker has in mind only the immediate increasing of his own business—Or whether he has the broader object of helping build the rural community upon a sounder and more permanent basis economically—Or whether the banker may really take pleasure in rendering any assistance that will enable the farmer to make more money , live more comfortably and have more pleasure , irrespective of whether a money return shall reach the banker—and there are not a few such bankers—If for any of these reasons whatever , the banker wishes to render some real service to the farmer , the ba...

In the Firmer ' s Interest [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

In the Firmer s Interest WHEN we are talking about good roads , we are talking of something of supreme importance to the farmer as well as the town : business man . If anything a good road is more vital to the farmer than it is to the town man . The wagon road and the automobile road is for the farmer what the railroad is to the city man . A drizzle turns the best dirt road in the world Into a slippery , dangerous mess ; a rain into an impassable sea of mud . The farmer is quarantined on the farm at a time when he is perforce kept out of the fields . His family is blocked away from the church , the school , the entertainment , the city , his mail , his neighbors , his selling place , his buying place—even his doctor . During the influenza epidemic people died on farms in Wapello county because doctors could not get to them . Undertakers had to resort to the crudest means . The point is that no farmer should talk for or against better roads on the ground that the city man is for or a...

And Still Another [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919

And Still Another THE American National bank of Nashville , Tennessee , has opened a farm department , under the direction of Grady Bullock , former county agent of Robertson county . Mr . Bullock will spend the greater part of his lime in the field with the farmers . The institution fully appreciates the many advantages to be gained by both , by a thorough cooperation of the farmer and the banker , and it is their desire to bring the two into closer touch , says P . D . Houston , president of the bank . Agriculture is the basic element of our national wealth , and especially is this true of this section of Middle Tennessee . The agricultural production here may be multiplied many times by the use of more scientific methods , and the cost of this production may be materially lessened by the use of modern machinery and labor-saving devices . Also there is a very great opportunity for the farmer to increase his annual sales by the use of a higher standard of livestock . The use of pur...
