FARMER AND NATION [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
FARMER AND NATION AGRICULTURE has been at once the cause and the result of American progress . The American farmer is the backbone of the social system . These things must continue to be so for the future . The United States is an agricultural country . The world looks to it for its food supply ; and if that ceases to be true , the farmers will he called upon to supply food for the ever-increasing domestic population . It has often been proclaimed by the students of statistics that a comparatively small part of the tillable acreage of the country could supply the food wants of the country . Under favorable weather conditions , Kansas could produce enough wheat for the enf re nation . The country affords such a diversity of soil and climate that a complete crop failure is impossible . The great practical problem of agriculture is man-power . The second problem in importance is machine-power . The former can only be solved by making the farm an attractive place through the development...

Women , Too [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
Women , Too SEVERAL banks have employed women as field agents to work with the women of the farms . Their example will be followed by others . It Is encouraging to have it realized that to make rural life happier and more contented is just as important as increasing profits . In its Farm Woman number of April , 1916 , The BankerFarmer urged bankers to break down the barriers between the bank and the farm woman , quoting farm women who said that their sisters were prone to be afraid of the banker . The banker , we pointed out , could often turn the scale when there was doubt as to whether a needed Improvement would be placed in the home . Nellie Kedzie Jones told the banker-farmer conference of 1916 that women hate debt and can be trusted to the utmost . Help the farm woman come Into her own . Who Will Do Something ?

CLEAR THINKING ON AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
CLEAR THINKING ON AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS i „ , m , , , , , i , , , „„„„„_„„_ „„„ The Most Vital Interest Frank 0 . Lotoden , Governor of Illinois , in Wallace s Farmer . WHATEVER the future developments of the Mississippi valley may be , agriculture will always remain its most vital interest . The problem of feeding and clothing the world becomes ever Increasingly difficult . The amount of arable lands available for cultivation , still unoccupied , has been rapidly decreasing not only In America but throughout the world during the last hundred years . I can remember myself when , as a boy , I lived upon a farm In central Iowa , that nearly all the territory to the west of us was unbroken prairie . It then seemed to most people that the amount of good land yet to be put under cultivation was absolutely unlimited . Today , however , there is very little available arable land , suited to cultivation , unoccupied in America . Our exports of foodstuffs even before the war had greatly dimi...
ILLINOIS' GRAIN FARMING LEASE [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
ILLINOIS GRAIN FARMING LEASE The State University s Suggestion for a Permanent System of Farming THIS lease is prepared to serve as a memorandum of agreement between landowner and tenant which shall make possible a more definite system of soil maintenance and improvement on rented farms . It follows in general local customs already well established with reference to the divisions of the farm returns on farms where most of the crops raised are sold . The provisions for reimbursing the tenant for unexhausted improvements remaining at the termination of his lease makes it possible for him to establish N more permanent systems of farming . In adapting the general provisions of such a lease to a particular farm some changes will necessarily be made . In drawing this lease , an attempt should be made to make it as flexible as possible . All ordinary provisions which are likely to be desired in such a lease are included . Such of these as are not required may be omitted . Others may be add...
WHERE DOES TENANCY LEAD ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
WHERE DOES TENANCY LEAD ? An Answer by a Southern University That Should Be Read By All WHAT will be the chance for sane , safe democracy in any community or country , state or nation that is populated by landless , homeless people ; who in the very nature of things move from pillar to post under the urge of necessity or opportunity , who lack identity with the community in which they live , who feel little responsibility for local law and order , who lack a proprietary interest in schools and churches and other agencies of progress and prosperity , welfare and well-being ? It Is well uigh impossible to socialize , civilize , or Christianize a landless , homeless people ; and Mexico perfectly Illustrates this fundamental truth . At bottom , her people are illiterate , irresponsible , and impossible because the masses are landless and homeless . On the other hand , Switzerland and Denmark are countries whose economic and social institutions are based on the nearly universal ownership...

Getting Together [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
Getting Together By the Editor of The Banker-Farmer in Bank Notes WHILE Industrial storms rock the nation , two Important classes are demonstrating thai genuine cooperation beats conflict all hollow . They are the banker and the farmer . Once , the banker , as the farmer visioned him , was a hard-shelled custodian of cash , only to be approached in dire necessity , in trepidation and trembling . Once , the farmer , as the banker saw him , was an unreasonable person who didnt understand the importance , of being on hand to pay or renew on the morning the note was due . This barrier of misunderstanding has been leveled to a great extent . Education has done it . The banker , perhaps , has been educated more than the farmer . He has come to realize that . agriculture Is the basic Industry and that he Is closer to the man on the soil than any other business man can be . Both banker and farmer are profiting and even more the nation . But the goal is still far . Agriculture must become pe...

When the Money Crop is a Curse [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
When the Money Crop is a Curse TT 7 HENEVER the greed for a money YV crop unbalances the wisdom of husbandry , the money crop is a curse . When it stimulates the general economy of the farm it Is the profit of the farm . The soli that produces cotton Invites the grains and the grasses , the orchard and the vine . Clover , corn , cotton , wheat and barley thrive in the same enclosure ; the peach , the apple , the apricot , and the Siberian crab in the same orchard . Herds and flocks graze ten months every year in the meadows over which the winter is but a passing breath and in which spring and autumn meet in summers heart . Sugar cane and oats , rice and potatoes , all come together under our skies . To raise cotton and send Its princely revenues to the west for supplies and to the east for usury would be a misfortune if soil and climate forced such a course . When both Invite independence , to remain in slavery Is a crime . To mortgage our farms for the money with which to buy meat ...
Pure-Bred Dairy Sires [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1920
Pure-Bred Dairy Sires EVERY dairy herd , regardless of its quality or breeding , should have a good pure-bred dairy bull at Its head . This appltse toiMl ; scrub and grade herds as wel ^ Mj * flr herds of better breeding . ThedjPfhters of a scrub cow and a good ^¦ j ^ bred dairy sire are only grades , but ¦ Kten their production recoras are double the records of their dams . If these daughters are then bred to first-class pure-bred dairy bulls of the same breed , the granddaughters may become high grades of large production . In this way each generation may climb to high . and still higher levels . The descendants of grade cows and pure-bred bulls can not be registered but in production ot milk and butter fat they may equal pure-breds . Improvement due to feeding and selection has a limit beyond which it Is very difficult to go , but there seems to be no limit to improvement due to breeding . —U . S . Department of Agriculture .

Bankers , city and country , are alike interested in the great problem which is fundamental to the prosperity of this country—tlte development of American agriculture .

The very root of the problem lies in this matter of rural education and in the development of a country life that offers not only profit , but education , health and a fair measure of enjoyment .
