Need More Practice [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

Need More Practice As yet the teaching of agriculture in our rural and town grade schools has been too largely cultural , out of books , theoretical . What we need is the larger teaching of the trade of agriculture , to the largest available measure demonstratibnal and essentially practical , dealing with the things of country life with which the pupil is on speaking terms , or to which the boy or girl needs but a formal introduction , all this couched in the terms of the lives of the pupils . — Jewell Mayes . Take interest in the farmer as well as from him is a slogan that should be before the eyes of every banker .

Attend This Mpprino- ON Monday * Oct . 18 , the Agricultural Commission of the American Bankers association will hold a meeting at Washington , D . C . This will be one of the section meetings of the great convention of the American Bankers association .

TODAY'STHOUGHTON RraALPRQBLEMS ^ 'I [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

TODAYSTHOUGHTON RraALPRQBLEMS ^ I Prevent Human Waste Dr . Andrew M . Soule , Georgia Agricultural College HUMAN waste has been going on all these years and its extent was not discovered until the records of the War Department showed 33 j ^ per cent of our man-power was defective in some respect and not prepared for active army service . Whatever might have been the attitude of these men toward their country , they were debarred from the patriotic service of participating in its defense . Most of the men were suffering from defects which could have easily been corrected . It was found that many were suffering from malnutrition on account of improper feeding at some time in their lives and this same fact is borne out in examinations made this year when from 40 to 60 per cent of the children in rural and city schools were shown to be malnourished . No more important call to duty or opportunity for service has been afforded the people of the United States than that of seeing that the n...

HOW WE DO IT IN TUPELO [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

HOW WE DO IT IN TUPELO One of the bulls of the cooperative association— Beatrice Sultan , who has a grand milk record—a Tupelo calf club boy Cooperation is Bringing Better Sires to This Community—By S . J . High THE article Better Sires and Bankers by J . P . Mohler , in the May issue of The Banker-Farmer suggests the idea that we tell you what we are doing in Tupelo to encourage the use of better sires on our farms . We are located in the hill section of north-east Mississippi , where the whites are largely in the majority . Our farms are not of the plantation type . At one time cotton was the chief crop , and when the invasion of the boll weevil struck us we had some , discouraged farmers , bankers and merchants . The fact that we have a oig population and small farms makes it possible to base our prosperity upon livestock keeping . Our motto that we harp on continuously is Pigs , Poultry and Dairy Cows on Every Farm . The bank can do nothing unless there is leadership to head up ...

CONSOLIDATION OF SCHOOLS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

CONSOLIDATION OF SCHOOLS What 1 , 400 Farmers Think of It After Trying It—By E . B . Hodges THE best estimate of centralized schools can be given by those who have tried them for several years , and the opinion of a majority of the people can be trusted . When the writer decided to collect information as definite and authentic as possible on the success or failure of this type of schools , he printed post cards similar to the following and sent them to the superintendents of 56 consolidated districts , with the request that every rural patron be supplied with one : DEAB SIB : This card is stamped and addressed for the information of others who are considering consolidation . Will you please answer the following questions at once and return the card to the mail box ? 1 . How far do your children ride in the school bus ? 2 . How long are they usually on the road to school ? 3 . Do they suffer from cold ? From any other cause ? 4 . Are your children required to wait out in the snow and...

HAS SCIENCEHELPED THE FARMER ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

HAS SCIENCEHELPED THE FARMER ? One Man Wanted to Know and Here s the Answer—By E . B . Reid YOU say that farmers generally do not appreciate what science has done for agriculture , and you illustrate with instances from your own experience . Then you suggest that this Department prepare a pamphlet on What Science Has Done for the Farm . Unfortunately , we are not in position now to undertake that task . But we have issued more than 1 , 000 farmers bulletins and nearly as many Department bulletins , every one of which treats of some phase of what science has done for the farm . Not one of those bulletins could have been written except for the patient , painstaking investigations and experiments of some scientist . Among those bulletins , many a one represents the work of some man s entire life . Others of them combine the results of the efforts of many scientists through a number of years . These facts , as you say , are not appreciated—but they are used . The farmer very frequently ...

THE NEW YORK FARMER 'SFUND [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

THE NEW YORK FARMER SFUND How It Is Improving Personal Credit—By Marc W . Cole OUR original fund , the Patriotic Farmers Fund , was raised by contributions of public-spirited citizens who had no other thought than that of increasing food production in New York state . Contrary to the general impression among the bankers of this state , we discovered a large and thrifty class of intelligent farm borrowers who were seriously handicapping their method of production and the amount of it through the lack of working capital . The banks of the state had , in spite of many efforts to prevent it , gradually drifted away from a proper consideration of the needs of working capital in their respective communities . Our farmers , on their part , did not like and could not use the ordinary terms of bank credit which was sixty or ninety days and in a few instances , six months . The farmers did not understand and did not like to ask for renewals . In short , the system was obviously intended to ta...

BANKERS CAN HELP [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

BANKERS CAN HELP SOMEONE has said , All Wealth Comes from Mother Earth , and as we think of the statement we are confronted with a wonderful field of opportunity ; a field open for opportunity and tremendous expansion ; one in which we must not expect to be the leader , but the servant and the helper . If there is a county in our state that , does not at this time support a county agricultural agent , our county bankers association should not be content until a satisfactory and competent agent is procured , and when installed we should assist him in every proper forward movement . He will , because of his training , be able to analyze the quality of the soil in the various parts of the country and counsel with the farmer as to that which will he best to raise thereon . He will , in a tactful way , advise as to preserving the fertility of the soil ; in many instances he will advise the free use of commercial fertilizer ; he may advise shipping in a car of lime ; he may urge raising a...

Agriculture in the Future [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

Agriculture in the Future r . ERE are not more acres of tortile lands to be brought under cultivation , barring a few million that at a great cost may yet be irrigated and small tracts of wet land which may sometimes be drained . But in amount these are insufficient . America then must feed and clothe her growing population from lands now in tillage . Can it be done ? Only the ignorant or the pessimistic would say No ! Agricultural science has already done much , but in reality has only tickled the field of possibilities . But science is dependent upon man to transform knowledge into reality . Good roads , schools and churches and home owners with modern homes are vitally essential to production and will come when the farm market comes into its own . These conditions of labor and price schedules which at present make an increased production impossible will be adjusted . Some day industrial production , now behind , will catch step with the farm . Sometime transportation will be rebu...

Farm Home Conveniences [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

Farm Home Conveniences ONE reason why labor is getting scarcer and scarcer on the farm is because each year hundreds of boys and girls leave the farm to seek jobs in the city . Some one has figured that five hundred young men and women leave Nortix Carolina farms each year . Farm labor in North Carolina averages $ 2 . 50 a day at present . This means that a quarter million dollars worth of labor is lost to North Carolina farmers annually . This great loss along with the threatened destruction of home life makes the situation alarming , and something must be done at once to make our boys and girls contented in their farm homes . Much has been said and many reasons given for their leaving . It seems hard to understand why boys and girls should prefer the crowded offices and stores and a small bed-room to call home in the cities , to the old home place on the farm with its roomy house , broad acres , and cool spring at the foot of the hill . Wonting in the fields and seeing things grow...

The Farmers' Duty [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

The Farmers Duty FARMERS as a class are overwhelmingly the stalwart , staunch , sane , conservative , and stabilizing influence in our population . They have a great duty and opportunity in exhibiting these qualities at this particular time , and they must not fair the nation . The greatest danger in America today is in the lack of the right kind of leadership among hand and brain workers ; in the lack of courage and 100 per cent American leadership on the part of our public officials , and on the part of men like us . Without intelligent , ail-American leadership , the masses will not merely right some wrongs ; they wW teSmieir ^ s ^ cotti mit wrongs . Without wise , firm leadership , the masses will not merely cleanse the temple of the money changers ; they will pull down the temple upon themselves and all of us . The public welfare is first and last the end to be served—what is best for all Is and must remain best for each . That means , also , that any type of agriculture or ind...

These Hit the Mark [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1920

These Hit the Mark AN Indiana school superintendent placed in store windows large placards bearing the following legends : The school problem is . the most important problem in America to-day . We have belittled the biggest job in the Nation . Fifty per cent pay will not secure 100 per cent efficiency . A cheap teacher is worse than a cheap egg . You do not have to eat the egg , but your child is the helpless victim of a good-for-nothing teacher . Fair play is the foundation of American principles . Teachers can not teach fair play without fair pay .
