What Cooperation Means [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919
What Cooperation Means Y OUR bankers association in its new program of agricultural development and improvement is to be congratulated . The future of the agriculture on the 10 , 560 farms in this state is very much dependent upon the kind of relationship which continues to exist between the banker and farmer . The improvement of our livestock , the keeping up of our soil fertility , and the building up of a satisfactory farm and community life , are problems that must concern you bankers . The prosperity of the banks , as well as the business prosperity of our small towns is directly related to the prosperity of the farmers in the adjacent communities . In the banker-farmer movement you are . cooperating in an enterprise which will benefit both parties . —M . O . Pence , Delaware State county agent leader , to Delaware Bankers association .
Livestock and the Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919
Livestock and the Banker IN a vicinity where livestock Is raised you will find a steady business—deposits not fluctuating as they do in a straight crop country—there will be some livestock moving all the time and banks will not have those extreme Feast and Famine times . In short I will say that the livestock industry has such an effect on the banking business , that the banker should see to it that each of his farmer-stockmen and straight cattle men customers should raise and handle all the livestock their facilities will permit , even keeping in mind the feed crop necessary to the profitable raising and finishing of livestock . Let the livestock help increase your deposits and make your people independent . —J .- B . Hines , Oklahoma Stock Yards National bank , Oklahoma City , Oklahoma .
The Secret [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919
The Secret What we want is more of everything for everybody . The secret of social advancement is increased production . We want 30 bushels of wheat to the acre instead of 15 ; 72 bushels of corn instead of 36 ; 300 pounds of butterfat to a cow instead of 150 ; locomotives that will draw 100 cars to a train instead of about 50 ; machinery that will make 10 yards of cloth where it now makes 5 ; and so on all around the ci -le of the industries . — George E . Roberts . .

COMMUNITY UNION [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919
COMMUNITY UNION It is Everyone s Problem—By C . W . Pugsley A HOUSE divided against itself cannot stand . Neither can it stand . . if its construction is faulty . The same is true of a community . Every community is agricultural . It is composed of the farmers of the community who produce either raw or finished material , and those engaged in changing its form or place , as well as those who care for the physical , mental or spiritual needs of those people . Every community is therefore dependent upon the producers of the raw material , but necessary to the best development of the community are the other people who engage in its industrial and social life . The community cannot exist by dividing its body into sections , and keeping these sections entirely apart , for every section of the community has a vital relationship to the other section . True , there are problems which do not primarily concern all members or classes of the community , but the big , vital , important problems ...

Home First [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1919
Home First p \ OLLARS , though very necessary , are *~* not the sole object in life . There are other things which add more to life than the mere possession of money . One of these is an attractive home ; and that includes the home grounds . Fortunately there is now a greater interest taken everywhere in the beautifying of the home grounds than in the past . There is a realization afloat that none can afford to have bare and ugly surroundings . Trees , shrubs and flowers planted appropriately about the farmstead not only add to the cash value of the farm , but also give comfort , beauty and pleasure to those who make it their home . The Home First idea which we are thinking about so much tnese days is an excellent one . Beautiful home grounds do not require a fortune or a greatly increased income , but rather a careful study of the arrangement of the necessary objects such as the house , drives , walks , clothes yard , and out buildings ; and the planting materials such as grass , t...

FARM TENANCY AND MARKETING [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1919
FARM TENANCY AND MARKETING A Discussion of Two Big Problems by Secretary of Agriculture Houston THE increase of tenancy has become the subject of deep concern to thoughtful students of rural conditions . -The tenant , on an average , remains on the same farm only about onesixth as long as the owning farmer . Consequently , he often manifests little interest in the improvement of the farm and in the progress of the community . A certain proportion of tenants is normal and may not be unwholesome . Many farm owners , because of age or infirmity , find it necessary to retire . Their farms are temporarily operated by their sons or other relatives who subsequently may become owners through inheritance or purchase . Large numbers of young men with little capital find tenancy a convenient stage in their progress to ownership . Certain local studies reveal the fact that nearly two-thirds of the farm owners who onerate their farms have passed through this stage . Frequently it serves as a use...

About Ourselves [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1919
About Ourselves WITH this number , The Banker-Farmer begins another year . Lots of water has passed over the wheel since we were oorn to be an ambassador of the banker-farmer program . We have never aspired to grow in size . Our mission , as we conceived it , was in no way to attempt to rival the wellestablished technical journals of agriculture . Instead ours was to be a voice—a small voice , perhaps—but still a voice calling the American banker to enlist to do his bit for agriculture and country life . And we have kept pounding away on some headlined objects , until perhaps a constant reader might yawn . But to make the banker think of these things has been our excuse for existence . Beyond all question the banker-farmer army has grown . We like to believe that our part—our keeping everlastingly at it—combating at times many misunderstandings regarding our job—has had some part in the arousing of the bankers interest . For 1920 wed like to be left on the desk of every banker in th...

CLEAR THINKING ON AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1919
CLEAR THINKING ON AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS filirtniiiitmimnmiitwiniHiitiiiiiiuiiiiiniitiii titiiiiiiiiitiiitwiiiiiimwiiiiiiiii To Keep Them on the Farm By Prof . O . I . Christie NO doubt the greatest factor which is going to contribute to the movement of eventually keeping the best people on the farm is the vocational work of the consolidated schools . In consolidated schools which are being built up all over our country in rural school centers , it is possible to engage special teachers in the vocational subjects of agriculture , home economics and manual training . Agricultural and home economics instructors can be hired on a 12-months basis . These teachers will use the summer months in directing and supervising the work of the boys and girls in the home and on the farm ; growing , gardening , pig raising , bread baking , sewing , fruit and vegetable canning and other lines of work will be carried on by the children under the guidance of those teaching during the school year .
