Agriculture ' s Need—Trustworthy Soil Surveys [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

Agriculture s Need—Trustworthy Soil Surveys ( Continued from Page 2 ) of 10 . 3 per cent in the number of food-producing animals ( cattle , sheep , and swine ) from June 1 , 1900 , to April 15 , 1910 . To help feed the increase of 16 million people , we have decreased our average annual exportations by 112 million bushels of wheat and by a billion pounds of meat ; but some economists still think the high cost of living is due to the cost of high living or to the over-production of gold , and some statesmen would have an international commission appointed to help us discover why food products are becoming more valuable in the United States .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1914

The Man This Nation Needs S OMEWHERE in the real country is a man in ihe prime of life , neither too young nor too old —vigorous , toughthewed , Well-trained , cheerful and full of hope . He has faith plus , and courage . This man is a fair sample of ihe prosperous American farmer—the one we should want to perpetuate as the average farmer in these United Stales . He has chosen agriculture — all-around farming — as his life work and to him the farm is an ideal home . This man conserves his soil and makes his house as well as his acres blossom . He it is who solves the rural problem—for the man , not the soil is the problem ! Such a man as this is an object lesson to all his neighbors ; the basic asset of agriculture and the chief hope of its future . He should work w ^ ^ e banker and the banker should follow his lead to get the results for which he and THE BANKER-FARMER stand .

This question is asked more frequently than any other by skeptics on the subject of rural credit . Of course , there Is only one answer ; He can not . But lt ia too often an When the late J . Plerpont Morgan calmly told a United States senate committee that he had loaned millions with character as the chief collateral , the public gasped . Or .

Carver has just sent in this article . By Dr . T . N . Carver sumed by people who pride themselves on their hard headedness . and who tail to distinguish between hardness...

Must Increase Live Stock [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1914

Must Increase Live Stock F ROM the recently issued Brief Summary of the Condition of Crops and of General Business , by the Continental and Commercial National Bank of Chicago , we make the following extracts : Never before has the true worth of our agricultural production been so impressed upon the mind as a fundamental factor in our industrial and financial situation as at the moment . It is our chief hope in unraveling the tangle which the interruption of our foreign commerce and international exchange has brought about , and in protecting our gold reserves . For a time at least America is compelled to rely almost entirely upon her own resources and resourcefulness , and , without precedent , to work out of the situation brought about by a general European war . It is exceedingly unfortunate that this interference with the international commerce of the world finds the United States so unprepared to care for her foreign commerce . The lack of ships flying the American flag is a se...

The farm property oi The boy who leaves the farm is the principal actor in what truly may be called a national tragedy . The farm is our greatest present asset and our largest future hope . On its progress and prosperity depend that of the whole people—and , In a measure , of the world . Yet every day boys born and raised on farms are leaving them for town or city . Not one or two a day , but scores and hundreds . So the farms are being deserted by those best qualified to supervise and care for them . Why is this the case ? Why should boys stay on the farm ? By Douglas Field this country , including land , buildings . Implements and machinery and domestic animals , poultry and bees , was worth this sum at the time of the last census , four years ago .

A Vision [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1914

A Vision By Leigh Mitchell Hodges I DREAMED the other night of a Banker . This Banker of whom I dreamed was not merely a money-changer . He did not even care to be called a master of credits . If he had a name , I do not know what it was . He was four things . He was a Man , a Citizen , a Neighbor and a Banker . He himself ranked his distinctions in this order . Twenty years ago he had started out as a Banker . The community in which he lived had accepted him at his face value . That community did not think much of bankers as citizens and neighbors . The general run of its people had got used to austere , superior and coldly-calculating bankers , who were regarded as a necessary evil So this Banker had no easy row to boe . But he hoed ! He saw that he was necessary to the welfare and progress of the people round about him . Also , he saw that THEY were necessary to his -welfare and progress . He saw , as in a great burst of light that everything they did—their work and their play—ha...

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

Education WHILE the banker-farmer program has had Education as one of its foremost planks , yet we had not realized how keen was the interest of the banker in this particular field . This fact was brought out by the remarkable attention our August Education number created . From time to time certain editions of THE BANKER-FARMER have aroused unusual interest here and there , but no single edition , devoted especially to any one phase of our program , has enlisted such widespread comment as did the Education issue . Orders poured in on us from many banks—from Iowa in particular—for quantity shipments aggregating upwards of five thousand copies . Orders for eight hundred came from Canada . All wanted to put these extra copies in the hands of members of school boards , superintendents , teachers , and others to help bring better elementary and rural schools . Sometimes those who are working for a or the cause and who get tired , chiefly because results come so slowly , feel like the fe...

The Man OUR cover-page goes into some detail as to THE BANKER-FARMER S idea of The Man it thinks this nation needs .

To Keep Fertility on the Farm : Other Better Farming Notes A NATIONAL bank in Tennessee writes : We are reading THE BANKER-FARMER with much interest and profit We are lust beginning the operation of the first creamery in this section and we want to get out . a booklet showing the farmer the advantage of growing good cows and selling the cream . In one of your editorials ( June , page 9 ) I noticed a comparison of the value of soil strength taken from the soil in marketing farm produce or live stock . I was much impressed with this and would be greatly obliged if you could give me more details in this line to help clinch the argument to our farmers . We think the best and most concise statement we can give in answer to this progressive banker-farmer is one by H . J . Waters , made some time ago to the Kansas State Bankers Association . It is as follows : The Danes and Germans , the best farmers in tbe world , early learned how to fatten their soils at our expense . For nearly half a ...

The Home Town [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1914

The Home Town T HE dollars spent with the home merchant are the dollars that help to build up the community . Nobody ever heard of a mail order house in a distant city making a contribution for the improvement of this town . The merchant in the city pays nothing towards the support of the school in which our children are educated , nor for the support of the churches in which our people worship . In fact the dollar sent to the merchant in the big city is gone forever , so far as any good to your community is concerned . Is it fair to deprive the home merchant of your cash trade and thus deprive the community of the benefits to be derived from keeping this money at home ? Civic pride is a virtue to which that citizen can not rightfully lay claim who makes a practice of sending away from home for his purchases just for the sake of saving a tew pennies on each . Let s all band together in an effort to build up the community by patronizing the home merchants . ^ SIS TOUR town a back-yar...

The Southwestern Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1914

The Southwestern Banker By F . P . Holland President Farm and Ranch Pub . Co . BANKERS of the self-inflated variety , like narrow-minded preachers , make themselves believe , though they fail to convince others , that they are the Lords chosen people , called upon by Him to fill niches made to measure . The broad-gauged banker , the human variety , like other intelligent men , recognizes the value of co-operation for the general good of the community , the state and the nation . The people who handle the nation s finances , and in a measure control its destiny , should be deeply and sincerely interested in every beneficial industry , and more particularly should they be ready and anxious to lend to the basic industry of possible prosperity , agriculture , every encouragement and assistance . The writer is a strong believer in a community of inter * ests policy , beginning at home and including the nations capital , and taking in everything from the starting point . The bankers of th...

What They Sav [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1914

What They Sav I WANT to compliment you upon every number of THE BANKER-FARMER , particularly upon the last one . I believe the bankers are getting into the subject of agri culture in the right way , that is , by confining their attention to the larger principles that underlie the business , rather than in doing what so many are doing , spending all the time with details of production . The only suggestion I could make is that THE BANKER-FARMER at this particular juncture give even more attention to the economics involved in agricultural production . The injury to agriculture in Europe wiU certainly increase the call for American foodstuffs and this of itself may warrant as nothing else would , a more rapid increase of yield over here . It does not seem to be commonly understood that farmers can afford to raise larger crops when prices are high than they can afford to raise when prices are low , yet it is a lesson that we are needing to learn just now . —Eugene Davenport , dean Illin...

The New Gospel in Kansas A T THE RECENT annual meeting of the Kansas bankers , Charles M . Sawyer , state bank commissioner , urged his hearers to spread the gospel of good farming . Here are some pointed paragraphs trom his address : The bankers everywhere are waking up to the opportunities that exist on every hand for them to help the people of their communities in a material , moral and educational way . Recognizing that much more effective work can be done through organization than individually , the bankers of Kansas are forming county organizations . As an illustration ot what might have been done in the last six months , I want to call your attention to two thingsthere are many others . Experts of the agricultural departments , state and national , tell us that the average annual damage to crops by chinch bugs in this state is more than 20 million dollars and that at least 90 per cent of this amount could be saved by burning the breeding places of these pests during the winte...
