TODAY'S THOUGHT ON RURAL PROBLEMS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

TODAYS THOUGHT ON RURAL PROBLEMS Tenant Farming Chicago Tribune GOV . LOWDEN , In an address at the Michigan Agricultural college , deplored the increase of tenant farming . In our opinion he has touched here upon one of the most important questions of the day . If there is one policy which should be basic in the American scheme It is for farm ownership for farm operators . The Increase of farm tenancy is bad for the land and bad for the people . It is an economic evil and a wofse social and political evil . A tenant who has little or no hope of owning the land he is working will not conserve its productivity and expend money , thought or labor on improvements which he is not sure he will profit by . Even government agencies which are doing so much in many directions for agricultural progress , have not been sufficiently interested to keep close account of the growth of tenancy . There are no general statistics since 1910 , the last census . We have , however , some state statistics...

ENTER THE PURE-BRED SHORTHORN How Cooperation of Bank Helped Breeders of the Future—By A . W . Kasten THE most far-reacning single , of the past year , to promote the breeding of pure-bred cattle in the North-West was the organization and carrying to successful conclusion of the Peoples State bank calf club of Walla Walla , Washington . Results furnish a striking example of how the cooperation of a banker with a vision and other members of a pure-bred livestock association with a real unselfish interest in boys and girls may be the means of giving the breeders of tomorrow the necessary Impetus and support to make a successful beginning in a pleasant and profitable industry . The men who were primarily responsible for the organization and management were : H . H .

G . Cordiner , a l...

A PERSONAL RURAL CREDIT BILL [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

A PERSONAL RURAL CREDIT BILL Congressman L . T . M Fadden , Its Author , Explains Its Purpose to the House MR . SPEAKER , the rural credit bill I introduced today provides for the establishment of a cooperative system of farm credit based on personal security , as distinguished from landmortgage security . This bill is an adaptation of the best features of the European systems to meet the conditions in this country . It follows the Credit Agricole of France in limiting the activities of the proposed system to the use of bills of exchange , or to banking with bills , as distinguished from the system of banking with deposits , thus broadening the market for productive agricultural paper , reducing the expense of management , and improving our whole banking or credit system . The bill provides for one central bank , forty-eight branches , one for each state , and innumerable local associations or communes . The central bank will have a capital of $ 25 , 000 , 000 , to be furnished by t...

CAN WE EXIST WITHOUT WORKING ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

CAN WE EXIST WITHOUT WORKING ? Farm Folks Know the Answer , Even if Others Don t—By E . Davenport PROBABLY the most dangerous of all the mental disorders of society just now is its antagonistic attitude toward labor , old-fashioned , plain and unadulterated work , both physical and mental . In general the world is indisposed to exert itself . It is intent upon having as good a time as possible with as little effort as may be . The world wants to be supported and entertained and it Wants to hire somebody to do Jt . We have always had more or less of this attitude of mind , especially among the ruling classes and the educated , the masses accepting labor as a matter of course . In olden times conquests were wages for plunder and for slaves , and more recently boys and girls were encouraged to study hard and learn their lessons so they would not have to work . The gentle art of getting along by virtue of one s wits or otherwise by the exertions of others has been the great game at whic...

HOW THE BANKER CAN HELP [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1920

HOW THE BANKER CAN HELP H . A . Moehlenpah of the Federal Reserve Board to Texas Bankers YOU bankers have to do with the greatest producing class of our ¦ country , the farmers . They are producing the essentials most in demand by other countries . It has been my privilege to serve as a country banker for twentyfive years , a community similar to that which most of you serve here . These were the farmers , dairymen and the producers of livestock . You have in addition , because of your soil and climate , the great cotton industry . You will become more than ever the counsellors , the leaders , in the large new program just ahead . You are without doubt the largest natural livestock breeding district of our nation .

CORN SHOW SUCCESS County Agent Gowan , Banker Mauney and Dr . Winters look em over at the Oherryville show LARGE corn shows have their value , but the community corn show which brings into competition local varieties and local methods of culture is capable of a much greater service . It brings together corns adapted to the locality and when the growers meet there is an exchange of ideas adapted to local conditions . One of the most successful corn shows of this kind was held at Cherryville , North Carolina , in the agricultural room of the First National bank under the supervision of the county agents of Gaston and Lincolnton counties and the division of agronomy of the State college .

BETTER SIRES AND BANKERS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

BETTER SIRES AND BANKERS The Better-Sires-Better-Stock Drive and What It Means—By } . P . Mohler LIVESTOCK raising , though a business including many branches , rests primarily on a few principles of mathematics . The period of gestation is a time from which variations usually are slight . The off-spring , themselves the result of one male and one female unit , are practically equal in number so far as sex is concerned . The productive capacity of offspring is governed to a surprising extent by qualities which tbe sire and dam possess . The offspring of a pair of razorback swine will weigh at maturity about the average for that class of stock . Similarly , pigs of an improved breed of swine will weigh about the average for the breed represented . This is obvious , of course . But if you breed a pure-bred boar of the lard type to a razorback sow , you will obtain a litter of grade pigs which at maturity will weigh less than the average pure-bred hog but more than a razorback . Of cou...

THE BANKERS PART IN MARKETING He Can Render a Large and Varied Service—By George Livingston rT \ HAT the various existing systems J _ , of • distributing farm products are susceptible to improvement , and that the people of the country , both producers and consumers , are increasingly Insistent in their demands for the improvement of these methods is evident to all . It perhaps is not so evident that no one group of men , and no one class , can effect signal improvement in this complex matter without the assistance of other groups , while the evolution ot efficient , wise and equitable systems will require the united efforts of many classes throughout a considerable period of time . Since the Bureau of Markets of the United States Department of Agriculture was created expressly for the purpose of aiding in this work , and devotes its entire attention to it , it is gratifying to be asked by the bankers of the country , through the Agricultural Commission of their association , as to ...

TO IMPROVE THE RURAL SCHOOLS ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

TO IMPROVE THE RURAL SCHOOLS ? Some Working Suggestions That Will Mean a Lot—By Clarence Poe - ^ fj ^ HERE is no clearer nor more | -I inspiring voice raised in the . f South for better rural educa- j tion . than that of Dr . Clarence % Poe , Some time ago he outlined I in the Progressive Farmer his sag- f gestions to improve community I schools . Here they are : a program j that every banker should assist to j make a reality . \ EVERY school should have at least three teachers . Where the district is not large enough to Justify three w it should be enlarged . Where one teacher has to teach children of all ages and sizes , it is absolutely Impossible for any child to get the attention he or she deserves . We all know what happens when a farmer tries to cultivate three times the acreage for which he has adequate horse and man power . Every plant on the farm becomes a weak and sickly dwarf of what it ought to be . The same sort of thing happens when in the cultivation of children s mi...

The Rural School Situation in a Nutshell [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

The Rural School Situation in a Nutshell By the United States Bureau of Education rERE are in round numbers about 210 , 000 one-room rural schools in the United States . It is claimed by some who have made a careful study of this question that probably -two-thirds of these schools , that is , 140 , 000 , can and should be consolidated on a ten-year nation-wide campaign if a sufficient amount of flnanclal aid were provided therefor . This would leave 70 , 000 of these schools beyond the realm of practicable consolidation . It is also claimed by some who have made a careful study of the question that it is possible to eliminate 20 , 000 of the 70 , 000 schools by uniting two or more of these weaker schools in various parts of the country into a stronger one-teacher school than now exists in many places . This would leave us 50 , 000 one-teacher rural schools . These schools must not be neglected . They must not be boycotted . They must not be starved . But they must be made the best s...

The Bankers Opportunity [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

The Bankers Opportunity THE country bank can do nothing more beneficial to the nation , more helpful to its clients , nor in the end more profitable to itself , than to encourage increased agricultural production and to assist in bringing about happier farm conditions . This is not philanthropy . It is good business . It has an advertising value that cannot be denied , though its prime purpose does not contemplate that . What is more important , it develops a larger volume of business with the bank s clients . Practically every extra dollar that a farmer can realize by increased production will pass through the community bank . There is something besides plain business to be considered . Statistics show that the rural population of every county in Wisconsin decreased between the last two censuses . Furthermore , there is reason to believe that there has been a still greater loss recently , although the population of the state has increased , by the influx of people into the cities ....
