THE NEW FARMERS ORGANIZATION The Launching of the American Farm Bureau Federation—By C . H . Oathout SEVEN years ago last June farm bureau work in the North and West was , started when W . G . Eckhardt became farm adviser in De Kalb county , Illinois . Within a year seven other counties in Illinois had started similar work and the idea had spread to other states . The work was Initiated largely by business men , cankers in the main , but since it has demonstrated that it has a definite and valuable place in farming practice and economy it is now being backed and supported almost entirely by actual , bona fide farmers who make up the greatest per cent of the county farm bureau members . The idea in the beginning was that a man with farming experience and education should be put in charge of the farm bureau work .

THE WORLD COTTON CONFERENCE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1919

THE WORLD COTTON CONFERENCE Oul of Its Opinions Will Come Better Things for the Producer—By B . C . Powell I HAVE been asked to give a report of the Worlds Cotton Conference held in New Orleans . I will make no attempt to disguise the fact that there was every kind of delegate attending—from the fellow with the unreasonable dream to the Texas farmer who could not understand why it was necessary to sell two hundred million bales of chalk marks every year to dispose of less than fifteen million bales of production . But we need both of these men , and jit ls useless to say that we will not be influenced by them for we all are to a certain extent . We must have the dreamer to dream new dreams for us occasionally that we may have new ideas to think over , and from this season of thinking we often are confronted with a genuine idea that we have been longing for but would not take time to think it out until some radical forced us to do some thinking to combat some of his dreams . So , if ...

A more comprehensive plan was outlined for this years work than in any of the past years , and while there are about eighty bankers now listed on the committee , who are doing much for its community and furnishing crop and Industrial reports , which are published through the official organ and distributed through the courtesy of the Denver National bank , there are a few counties in the state that are not as yet represented .

Better Rural Teachers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1919

Better Rural Teachers THERE are 150 , 000 rural teachers in this country with less than high school education and no professional training . Measured by the responsibility that rests upon the teacher , it is little short of criminal for a state to permit a girl with only an elementary education , which was obtained in a rural school of only seven or eight grades in charge of a teacher who possessed only a seventh or eighth grade education , secured in a like school under a like teacher , to take upon herself the high and responsible task of teaching in the rural schools . For if there is any place in the entire field of education where a teacher of superior qualifications is most needed it is in the one-teacher rural school , and there are over 200 , 000 such schools in the United States today . The teacher in such a school must play the part of primary teacher , intermediate teacher , and grammar grade teacher day after day and oftentimes she must teach some high school subjects .<...

WHERE DOES THE FARMER STAND ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920

WHERE DOES THE FARMER STAND ? His Position in Industrial Unrest As Seen by a Careful Observer EVIDENCE continues to pile up in proof / of the American farmers determination that stable economic conditions shall prevail in this country . Two or three years ago you might hear expressions of warm sympathy with the big labor union in any farmers meeting you might attend . The labor unions seemed to be hitting the ball and doing great things for their members . The unorganized condition of the farmer was pointed out as the chief cause of low ^ prices for his products and for many other abuses under which he long has suffered . Join hands with us , back us up in our strikes , tell everybody to go to hell and youll soon be sailing along on Easy street , labor leaders told the farmers . While certain labor groups were denouncing the war and getting enormous wages for their work , the farmer was producing the greatest crops in history , and that with his sons at the front while his wife and ...

COOPERATE FOR GOOD ROADS For Widest Development , Neighbor States Must Unite—By W . G . Edens THE most important happening of 1919 , and one that promises most results in 1920 , is the spreading of the Illinois Good Roads idea to the other states of the union , particularly , however , to the states of the Mississippi Valley . The Illinois idea emphasizes two facts : first , that the Good Roads problem is essentially a local problem and secondly , that in its widest development it necessitates , a combination of local interests of such widespread character that each state must combine with the surrounding states in developing chief local highways Into main interstate highways .
