THE FARMER AND CITIZENSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1920

THE FARMER AND CITIZENSHIP Does He Realize His Place in the National Picture ?—By Lewis E . Pierson C ITIZENSHIP , citizen-building—that should be the regular job of every American who knows his nations needs and his own responsibilities . Americas position in the world Is so conspicuous in these times and the world is demanding so much of us that unless we keep our house in order we are sure to fall far short of our own obligations and , incidentally , short of living up to the world s expectations of us . America , strong , sound , resourceful , well regulated , will mean much in a world in which obligations of leadership have been placed upon us . America divided against itself , one element of power neutralizing another ; America uncoordinated , not steadfast to its ideals of citizenship , would present a disappointing spectacle in the face of an unmistakable world duty . No nation may hope to remain permanently above the level of its men and women . The effective permanent work...

THE FARMER AND THE H . C . OF L [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1920

THE FARMER AND THE H . C . OF L The First Statement by the New Secretary of Agriculture , E . T . Meredith I AM surprised that I should have received , the number of messages I have ,. particularly from daily papers , asking what plans I , as Secretary of Agriculture , have to reduce the high cost of living , indicating that the general feeling is that this is essentially an agricultural problem . It is , of course , related to agriculture , but no more than to many other lines of activity , and I am tempted to believe that the solution of the problem lies more in the hands of those interested in distribution and non-productive enterprises than in the hands of the farmers of the country . The farmers must certainly produce . They have produced and will produce—that is their business . They are on a peace measure basis , so given satisfactory conditions they will do their part , as the farmers of America have in every situation or crisis that has faced the country . But this question...

DAIRYING TURNED THE TRICK [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

DAIRYING TURNED THE TRICK How the Creamery Built Up a Pennsylvania Community—By J . C . McDowell BEFORE the creamery was built at Grove City , Pennsylvania , there had been * little real progress in agriculture in that community , where an unsatisfactory type of general farming had been , followed for about 100 years . On many farms cattle and horses were kept in barns and stables that were low , dark , and poorly ventilated . Butter in small quantity and sometimes of doubtful quality was sold on a sluggish market , and as a consequence the average family income was comparatively small . Farmers received a small cash income twice a year ; in the summer from the sale of wool , and in the fall from the sale of grain and steers . Occasionally they made a little money by selling timber or hauling coal , and their wives traded butter and eggs for groceries . Crops were generally poor , owing to low soil fertility and lack of proper cultivation . The few crops that could be sold were haul...

The Little Red Schoolhouse [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

The Little Red Schoolhouse IT ought to be pretty well understood by this time that the one ^ oom rural district school beloved of our grandfathers is mostly a scandalous institution . The typical teacher Is a girl Just out of normal school , much underpaid , sometimes overworked and sometimes with only half a dozen pupils of assorted ages . A Vermont report covering thirty-two such schools shows that in three years there were one hundred and seventeen different teachers , of whom—on an average—more than half served less than two terms . A great majority of these schools are poorly housed and hardly equipped at all—just a bare little room with a desk , a rostrum , a blackboard and a poisonous castiron stove . That efficient instruction can be had under such conditions is out of the question . And there is less and less excuse for the typical one-room ungraded rural district school . Our grandfathers could have that or nothing . In their day the nearest town was ten miles or more away...

SAFE FARMING FOR THE SOUTH [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

SAFE FARMING FOR THE SOUTH Here s a Program for Bankers to Study Carefully—By Bradford Knapp A SAFE farming program consists of : ( 1 ) A good home garden for every farm family and every town and village family in the South to supply the home needs for the maximum number of days in the year , with a sufficient surplus to be canned , stored , or dried for future use . In this home garden should be included an ample supply of Irish and sweet potatoes for home use . On every farm where possible there should be a small patch of either cane or sweet sorghum to produce the home supply of sirup . The production of honey for home use should be stimulated . ( 2 ) The production of corn on southern farms should be fully maintained and the acreage increased on all farms and in all sections which do not now produce a sufficient quantity for home use , with the exceptions noted below . Corn is the main dependence of the South for food and feed . There has been a gradual increase in acreage for s...

Farm Tenancy [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

Farm Tenancy THE BANKER-FARMER , seeking to assist In casting light on farm tenancy , has published and will publish articles dealing with various phases of the question and proposals looking to the increase of farm owners . That we are not in accord with all opinions thus expressed is to be taken as a matter of course by our readers . But lt is important that the bankers of the United States know that the University of North Carolina is making a study of tenancy in its state , that the state of Illinois has a tenancy commission investigating conditions , that Kansas has proposed legislation to its voters , and so on . In our January issue we published an article from the University of North Carolina News Letter , with this editorial preface : There are various angles to the tenancy problem . Obviously , there will always be tenants , from the very nature of people . Some time ago the aggressive News Letter of the University of North Carolina painted this picture of what a landless ...
