Bankers : Help Your County Organize to Get Demonstrator [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Bankers : Help Your County Organize to Get Demonstrator THE banker , who has been fiddling around the edges , eager to cooperate with his farmers but hardly knowing just where to apply his interest , need not hesitate if his county has no Demonstrator or Agent . He can shed his coat and perform invaluable service by helping to perfect the machinery by which a Demonstrator can be secured . The prime requirement of a successful venture in taking practical aid to the man on the farm is a strong local association , or farm bureau . The banker has already played a prominent part in organizing these associations all over the country . Uncle Sam , who is going to spend half a million dollars for a mere start next year—with an increasing donation annually—regards the local association as the foundation of success . So if the banker can assist in forming an association , he will be greasing the wheels of agricultural progress for his section . The banker is not to call in the farmers and gra...

What the Aliens Can Teach Us—and More to Come when War Ends [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

What the Aliens Can Teach Us—and More to Come when War Ends By Forrest Crissey ABOUT the most timely topic under discussion in America today is the Alien and his skill as a tiller of the soil . Probably there was never a period in the history of the United States when it was better worth while for the banker , tlie farmer and the business man generally to weigh well the value of the Old World farm worker as an agricultural asset . Why ? Because all immigration experts are apparently agreed that when the awful carnage now sweeping Europe comes to an end America will not only receive a flood of immigrants unprecedented in numbers but superior in quality to those of any influx that we have ever received before . Then , too , these students of immigration assure us that the trained farmer from European fields will be conspicuous among those pilgrims fleeing from wrecked and war-ridden Europe to peaceful , roomy and prosperous America . The situation , from the view point of the American...

Cornbelt Farmers Keep Breeding Ewes— -it Means Easy Money [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Cornbelt Farmers Keep Breeding Ewes— -it Means Easy Money W HILE traveling through ^ Europe , President Arthur G . Leonard , of the Chicago Union Stock Yards company , in studying with much interest the care and thrift displayed by many owners of small farms , observed that generally on each farm was kept a small band of breeding ewes as a means of utilizing farm waste and turning it into money . He learned that these ewes were considered about the most profitable things on the farm . These ewes not only consumed pilllllllllIlllll ! lllllllllUllllll ! ltl [ l ! lll ! llllllll ! l !

Three ImDortant Fields Where the Banker Can do Great Service [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Three ImDortant Fields Where the Banker Can do Great Service By E . Davenport RANKERS have sometimes been criticized for their interest in agriculture . For a variety of reasons I do not think that this criticism is well founded ; indeed , I believe that bankers should go further in this matter than they have planned . It has been frequently said that the bankers should not undertake to teach farming but rather should bring together the farmers and those who are engaged in agricultural research . This of itself is good work , but I believe bankers should assume a definite position regarding a few of the fundamentals of the agricultural situation . First , bankers should secure first-hand information and have definite -convictions concerning the relative agricultural value of different portions of their own states , then stand like a stone wall against the exploitation of worthless lands by money-making improvement associations . Nearly every state has sections which are practically ...

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

This Has the Right Ring NO question under discussion in education is so fraught with consequences for the future ot democracy as the question of industrial education . Its right development will do more to make education truly democratic than any other one agency now under consideration . Its wrong treatment will as surely accentuate all the undemocratic tendencies in our present situation by fostering and strengthening class divisions in school and out . It is better to suffer for a while longer from the ills of our present lack of system till the truly democratic lines of advance become apparent than to separate industrial education sharply from general education and thereby use it to mark off in the interests of employers a separate class of laborers . — Prof . John Dewey , Columbia University .

We Grow Up [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

We Grow Up HE HAVE grown up . THE BANKER-FARMER has had its first birthday . A year ago we burst upon a public that was spending a large part of its time dodging reading matter , old or new . Fortified with the glorious courage of Youth , THE BANKER-FARMER blithely hoisted the standard of better agriculture and awaited results with a confidence that we now realize was sublime . According to all tradition , we should never have reached our growth , sinking to rest instead in a neat little corner of the spacious grave-yard of periodicals which have starved to death for lack of appreciation . But results came . For we had a Cause worth while—big enough to atone for our manifest inefficiencies . The splendid thought that the bankers of the country sought to work hand in hand with the farmers for better things in Agriculture—materially and spirituallygripped the public mind . Here was a new kind of Crusader —it did not carry advertisements—it was not published for profit . Big men in agr...

Don ' t Lose Your Laueh [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Don t Lose Your Laueh a HEODORE DREIER , editor of a little trade journal , the Lace Curtain , promises himself some day to - write a story about The Man Who Lost His Laugh . A business man came to him with this appeal : I want to be saved from the thoughts of business that dominate me . My wife and I would be eager to go back to the time when I was earning $ 20 a week , if we could get with that wage the same sweet feeling that was ours then . My home life is lost . In my mad rush after business success , the ideals of my youth have vanished . I don t know when I laughed out from my heart . Theodore Dreier is undoubtedly right when he says that there can be no success in business when there is a failure in ones own personal life . He sketches deftly the homecoming of The Man Who Lost His Laugh : When his children crawl under the bed , the cat hikes for the back fence , the dog growls , and the neighbors call their children into the house when they see him coming—there s something w...

More Ferment ? No [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

More Ferment ? No T HERE never was a time when the United States was . so disposed to give business a square deal . The old gH | j muck-raking days are long gone ; we have chronicled —— - * the significant fact that the same Ida Tarbell , who tracked the Standard Oil octopus to its lair and stabbed it in its innards with her fountain pen , is now writing articles —and good ones , too—on the way big business looks after the welfare of its men . Uncle Sam , who is a conservative old gent , until he is riled , has gained his equilibrium . All our dirty linen has been washed—right out in the front yard . The neighbors in Europe looked over the fence and sneered . Their linen was just as dirty but why be finicky ? There are numerous signs to demonstrate that business is to have a new deal . No one could accuse Collier s Weekly of being a hide-bound journal , committed to the task of upholding the in trusts in their pernicious plans . In the heyday of muck-raking , Collier s , to be collo...

King Cotton Must Abdicate—Southern Banker Has Big Job [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

King Cotton Must Abdicate—Southern Banker Has Big Job W ILL the South learn the lesson of diversification from the European war and its disastrous effect on the cotton market ? Or will the efforts to carry the cotton crop with a national pool of 135 million dollars lull the southerner into a belief that if he can tide over his troubles today that it is still safe to be a vassal to King Cotton ? Had the banker and farmer been acting on the suggestion of THE BANKER-FARMER , we would not be in the condition we are in—that is , we in the South , writes A . J . Steen , cashier of the First National Bank of Soper , Okla . But long before this publication was established , wise bankers , editors and scientists in the South were preaching to deaf ears . There was plenty of time to lock the barn door before the horse was stolen . If the bankers of the South have their way , the southern states will greatly reduce their cotton acreage . They have declared that they will loan only to farmers w...

North Carolina ' s Big Idea [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

North Carolina s Big Idea N ORTH CAROLINA will hold its first Community Service Week this month . It looks like a big idea and other states will doubtless watch its workings eagerly with a view to following the example . Last year Governor Craig set aside two days to be observed all over the state as Road Working Days . Sufficient citizens participated to give a wholesome object lesson in community effort . But it had another effect . Dr . Edward K . Graham , the far-seeing executive of the state university , asked a question : Why wouldn t it be a better thing to have a week set aside for the consideration of all matters of public welfare ? Dr . Graham found Clarence Foe a ready convert . So was the governor . Hearty support came from organizations . An executive committee took charge . A machinery was perfected to reach every community in the state . A bulletin was issued that is one of the most complete publications of its kind—it is invaluable to any one interested in community ...

Agriculture Most Important [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Agriculture Most Important By William A . Law President American Bankers Association THE year 1914 will long be memorable in banking history for its unprecedented events . In its early months slackening trade , and the constant anticipation that the new Federal Reserve system would soon be launched , caused an accumulation of idle funds and produced abnormally low interest rates . Mercantile stocks were reduced , considerable commercial indebtedness was liquidated , and some securities were distributed . Later on , when crop reports gave assurance of abundant yields , cheerfulness became prevalent in business circles generally except in some of the larger industrial and financial centres . The news of war broke like a sudden squall , shaking the financial ship from stem to stern . But with universal conviction of fundamental soundness and skillful use of necessary machinery , the situation was soon under control . The Federal Reserve Board and the Administration as a whole , with th...

Agriculture at the Expositi ons [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Agriculture at the Expositi ons A GRICULTURE will be big in interest at the California expositions , soon to open . Both at San Francisco and at San Diego the state will show visitors its great resources . At San Diego the agricultural display will be most important . The object is to interest not alone the man who already is farming , but more especially the city man who has the desire to go back to the land , but not the direct incentive . San Diego will not show him the largest pumpkin ever grown , or the finest wheat ever produced , and stop . It will show a citrus orchard bearing a plentiful supply of oranges , lemons , grapefruit and other citrus fruits . It won t show farming machinery idle in a great hall , which no one takes the trouble to visit . Rather it will show that same machinery—heavy reapers , tractors , plows and cultivators—in operation in an open field sown to a variety of crops . The machinery will do exactly what it is supposed to do on the farm , and the city...

Some "Ads" That Might Help [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Some Ads That Might Help MORE and more banks are using their advertising space to talk to their farming customers . They often ask us for suggestions . Thest advertisements are reproduced merely from the copy standpoint , as it is impossible to reproduce display . Used by the editor for his own bank , they are offered not with the belief that they are perfect , but with the hope that they may be helpful : A TIME TO THINK With business generally in a waiting and watchful attitude—local business depends largely upon the farmer . World conditions - are now such that farm products are certain to bring good prices and we should strive for a great acre production in 1915 . Altogether , these are the days when we must be optimistic , but—sane , thoughtful , calculating and thrifty . It is in such times that the wise converse , look well to their expenditures and think more of the character , safety , service and cooperation of their bank .

Better Farmin g- —L i m e [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Better Farmin g- —L i m e By Prof . P . G . Holden International Harvester Co . WHILE lime is not a cureall , it is the most economic neutralizer for soil acidity . It is beneficial in many other ways . It improves the texture of the soil . Breaks down the soil particles . Lets in air and moisture . Liberates nitrogen and other plant food . Makes sour soil sweet—enlivens it—that is , makes conditions favorable to plant growth by giving life to the soil bacteria which make it productive . There are millions of acres of sour soil in the United States . It is difficult , if not impossible , to get a stand of alfalfa or clover on sour soil . In the humid sections of the cornbelt one of the obstacles in the way of establishing crop rotations with legumes is acid soil . Lime may be obtained in the form of ground limestone , air-slacked lime , hydrated or water-slacked lime , burnt lime , and marl . Lime is best applied after the land is plowed for a crop , scattering with a lime distribut...

Toward Better Things [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1914

Toward Better Things W ARDEN ALLEN of the Illinois penitentiary at Joliet would substitute dormitories and cottages for prison cells—open air work on a state farm for work inside prison shops—stockades for prison walls—and classification and segregation of various classes of convicts , instead ot tossing them together indiscriminately . He wants the state to establish a new institution on two thousand acres it owns , using all except the worst criminals . The Chicago Herald believes he is on the right track . ? SETH SHEPARD , teacher of a one-room school in Cook county , urged his twenty-nine pupils to work on their fathers farms during the summer . He worked , too . Each little farmer rented the little farm , paying a standard rent . Each little farmer opened an account with the Niles Center State Bank . Each transacted business with checks . Their books showed profits of $ 2 , 000 when the season s work ended . Many of the children bought their own books aim clothing this fall . T...
