To Keep Them on the Farm [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1914

To Keep Them on the Farm By Herbert Quick IN WRIGHT COUNTY , Iowa , we had a county superintendent named Benson . Mr . Benson sent out a printed Blip asking • the children in the rural schools to answer a gceat ___ u _ njr questions .- Among these questions , and hidden in the ree ^ because , perhaps , he did not want them to understand that this was . the important question , was something like , this : What do you propose to do as your life work ? This went out to some five or six hundred pupils in the- rural schools . Over 95 per cent of the girls and over 85 per cent of the boys , If I remember the figures correctly , declared that whatever they did they would have nothing to do witi farming when they began working for themselves . . Now think of that ladies and gentlemen . Think of tiie instability of a society in which 90 per cent of the children have already made up their minds against the thing they are doing , and have fully determined to do something else !

The Banker and the Farmer—As a Farm Editor Sees Them AN OBSERVATION of a third of a century leada ine to conclude that the banker of broad and brotherly view ls by odds the most influential man in his community . - Influence inevitably implies obligation . No man , even ln the humblest walk , lives unto himself alone . Unto whomsoever much ls given , of him shall be given , or mm shall be There are no better , more sincere friends of the farmer than the . editors ef the farm papers . Every banker should take these papersshould urge hi * farmer customers to read them . They have been cordial and generous Iii their welcome of THE BANKER-FARMER . What do they think of the work of the American bankers In agriculture ? Is the banker a busybody , an interloper ? We have asked several editors what they think . One of the first to respond Is W . R . Goodwin , of the Breeder s Gazette . I could have , In good heart , thrown more bouquets at the work the bankers are doing—but the serious side...

Education [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1914

Education THIS issue of THE BANKER-FARMER devotes much space to several phases of the most fundamental of all problems—EDUCATION . Take care of the youth of the Republic , and they will take dire of the Republic . It is a maxim of German statesmen that whatever you would have appear in the life of a people , you should put into the schools . Educate a boy and you train a man ; educate a girl and you train a family . Spencer said— to prepare us for complete living is the function , which education has to discharge . Has this function been discharged ; is it now being discharged ? . If THE BANKER-FAEMER believed it was being discharged in any large or adequate measure—and particularly in the elementary grades and in the country , it would not use its cover page for Dr . Eliof s strong statement , or devote so much of its space to this paramount issue—placing better elementary schools as the foundation-stone of tiie banker-farmer program . The great constructive work we all urge is bas...

A Big Banker on Business and Politics—They Should Mix [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1914

A Big Banker on Business and Politics—They Should Mix THE BASIS that is back ot the demand tor legislative restriction and control of business , I believe to be in large measure made up of sound economic facts .

Vanderlip , president of the National City Bank , New York , delivered an address whlchbreathed so much of citizenship and patriotIsm ; so-much every merchant , farmer , and banker can endorse ; so much that Is vital to the sort of progress we must make , that we feel It a duty to reproduce Its salient points .

A Slogan for Nevada [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1914

A Slogan for Nevada By Lloyd R . Patrick Many of our far western and northwestern states are hardly considered , relatively speaking , to have agricultural possibilities but developments , scientific and otherwise , have shown that even the worst of these sella have possibilities . Mr . Lloyd R . Patrick , state statistical agent for the U . 8 . department of agriculture at Eno , Nev ., sounds a slogan for the Nevada banker and his conclusions doubtless apply far beyond the borders of Nevada * 46 million acres . Mr . Patrick points a path for thd Nevada banker to perform « great service . ONE cow or five sheep on each acre ! Such a slogan is practical for Nevada with its immense range areas of miles and almost counties tn expanse . Such a slogan has been demonstrated in some of the European nations and in few sections of this great nation . One can readily see that the problem of increasing the livestock population of Nevada resolves itself to the cultivated meadows where hay , grai...

Boost the Home Town—And it Will Pay You Back Tenfold IT IS pleasant to hear a man say my town ; . but lt Is better to hear him say our town . A MANS best possessions are his family , his neighbors and his town . Away-from-home buying never helps them and often hurts them . FRIENDSHIP , nelghborliness , fraternity or whatever you will call that spirit of comradery that comes when men know one another well , is the cement that holds together this union of the states . It is not created ln great cities . — William Allen White . The Retail Store THE RETAIL store as a way station in the channels of trade Is an Indispensable factor in perpetuating the commercial life of a community . With tbe destruction ot the commercial life of the central town or city ot a community all other forms of social life must cease to exist because they all depend upon commerce and trade . For this reason the citizen needs the town fully as much as the town , needs the citizen . Let him not suppose that in the...

Let tbe tenant himself take the stand . Call T . H . Jones , a farmer ot Oklahoma . So long as tenantry Increases , beef and dairy cattle will decrease , testifies Tenant Jones . The fertility of the soil will decrease—society will lag and public Improvements will be slow and unsatisfactory—we will continue to raise our children in the cotton fields , instead of ln the school room .

Give Educational , Not Cash Prizes [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1914

Give Educational , Not Cash Prizes C ASH prizes and junkets for young prize winners in corn , canning , poultry and other contests are discouraged by the United States department of agriculture , whose recommendation should be considered carefully by ail organizations of bankers interested ln fostering movements among the young . Scholarships in state colleges of agriculture are suggested tor state winners and short courses for the county winners . Instead of cash prizes , such rewards as a pair of registered pigs , a pair ot full blooded chickens , a fine colt a registered calf , books on agriculture , a fireless cooker ( for girls ) and so on , are suggested . In general it is better to offer many small prizes than a few large ones . If 20 boys try for a prize and only one is fortunate , some of the 19 unsuccessful contestants will probably be too discouraged to try again . But if 6 of the boyu are rewarded tor their efforts , more merit will have received recognition and the rema...
