THE ROAD TO FARM OWNERSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

THE ROAD TO FARM OWNERSHIP It s Not Easy , But There s Hope for the Right Man—By M . H . Gossett / TMIE cure for growing farm tenancy I and how to bring the homeless man to the land , is a question so much discussed , by so many people , including agricultural economists , idealists , statesman , and politicians , that it is difficult to deal with the subject without being prosy , trite , and commonplace . A country , where every farm is occupied by its owner , and where improvements and community conditions make farm life comfortable and profitable , is beautiful and desirable . This picture Is easier drawn and theories worked out for its realization than is its accomplishment . Many countrybred men now living in town , tired of office and industrial engagements and the economic struggle to make ends meet , recall the agreeable smell of fat cows waiting to be milked , and sigh to walk again barefoot in the fresh plowed furrow . At the risk of being charged with heresy , I venture t...

HOW CAN WE BUILD OUR ROADS ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

HOW CAN WE BUILD OUR ROADS ? Rising Costs Are Greatest Problem Now—By Thomas H . MacDonald TIE close of the world war marks the beginning of a new era in road • building in this country . Previously the most difficult problems confronting the road builders were those relating to the ways and means for securing the necessary funds . With a very few exceptions the question at the present time is no longer one of funds but how to produce the roads for which funds have already been provided . To appreciate fully the extent to which the public is now providing road funds , it may be well to review very briefly the financial phases of highway improvement for a period of years . In 1904 the total expenditures on rural roads and bridges , including new construction , repair and maintenance , amounted to $ 80 , 000 , 000 , of which amount only $ 2 , 500 ,- OOo were expended under the supervision of existing state highway departments . In 1914 the total road and bridge expenditures had reache...

BANKER AND FARMER [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

BANKER AND FARMER THERE is no man in the community more vitally interested in the prosperity of agriculture In his community than the country banker . He is the custodian of the idle money of the entire community . These cash deposits are the basis of the credit in which he deals . For the banker does not deal much in money ; he deals in credits . His cash deposits are valuable because for every dollar of cash deposited with him he can sell three or four and sometimes Ave dollars worth of credits ; and it is from the credits that he makes his profits . Hence , the more cash deposits the more credits , the more business for the community , and the more profit to the banker . In country communities these deposits , imust come mainly from the land . Hence , there is no man more interested in the increase of soil fertility and its wise conversion into crops than the country banker . The banker should know his territory , its soil , its resources , the crops for which it is best adapted ...

The Farmer and the Hiehwav [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1920

The Farmer and the Hiehwav THE public highway that most helps the farmer to secure the largest number of cents out of every dollar s worth procured on the farm is the best and cheapest road for that farmer . Good roads Insure getting a threshing machine into the field in time to save the crop . Good roads Insure the top cent on every marketable bushel of grain on the farm as well as freeing the farmer from the domination and dictation of any local buyer , since good roads let the producer take his crops to the terminal city market if the local offerings are unfair . Truck marketing of farm products and livestock is on hands , and with good roads we hang out a red flag and stop a truck any day for sending off a few hogs , a fat calf or so , a score of chickens , a crate of berries , or a sack of apples . Good roads are in so many ways and so many times a year priceless blessing to the women folks . Really good roads often save the life of a member of the family , just as bad , roads ...

College—By L . M . Tobin MARION LAW , president of the Texas Bankers association , and P . li .

THE BANKER'S RESPONSIBILITY [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1920

THE BANKERS RESPONSIBILITY Bankers and farmers iidmired them at Texas A . and M . college An Address to the Texas Banker-Farmer Conference—By Joseph Hirsch THERE are 1719 banks in Texas whose business , with few exceptions , is primarily dependent upon agriculture . It is fundamental that safe banking depends upon safe farming , that the prosperity of the farmer means prosperous banking , and , that correspondingly ,- unsound , unscientific farming , means reduced bank deposits and a depreciation in the basic value of bank loans . The bringing together of Texas bankers and farmers at this college of agriculture should therefore be viewed as a strictly business proposition on the part of the Texas Bankers association . We have come here , my friends , to have pointed out to us the things which go to make for the development of Texas agriculture to pledge to you the farmers of Texas , our financial support in a program of safe farming ; and correspondingly it is our hope that the farm...

Agriculture ' s Crisis [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1920

Agriculture s Crisis rlERE were apprehensions that public interest in agriculture , aroused by the emergency of the war , would lapse when the conflict ceased . Let us resolve not to let this public interest in agriculture die completely away as soon as this emergency is passed , urged one leading banker in The Banker-Farmer in 1917 . If it is of public interest that every farm be well tilled this year , so it is every year . Despite the conclusion of the emergency , today the public is forced to consider the subject of agriculture even more than it has ever done before . There is a shortage of farm labor The trend to the city is more disconcerting than ever . The city is becoming acutely aware that it cannot take its food supply for granted . Most of the banks in the United States are country banks They are in strategic positions to do a big part in solving some of these agricultural problems that cannot be put off for action any longer .
