State Associations Hard at Work for Agriculture in 1915 [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
State Associations Hard at Work for Agriculture in 1915 ALABAMA . —The southern and central portions of Alabama , the principal agricultural sections , have been forced on account of the low price of cotton to work out a system of diversified farming . The bankers were called together and organized a system by which each county would be under the control of the Agricultural Committee . We have been very aggressive in appointing a chairman in each county , who has taken hold of the work , and in connection with the diversified crop campaign of the International Harvester company , have accomplished much good up ti &gt; date . Our plans for the remainder of the year include encouraging the work of the boys corn clubs and the girls tomato clubs , and the organization of farmers into shipping clubs , and producing in certain localities articles of a similar kind that they may ship in carload lots and secure the best prices . Our general suggestions will be on the line of trying ...
How a Banker Changed a Community—What Other Banks are Doing [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
How a Banker Changed a Community—What Other Banks are Doing MOST farmers are not able to start out in the livestock business without help from the banker . A few years ago at Morris , Oklahoma , L . S . Bagley , cashier of the First National bank , in studying how to adjust himself and his bank to the mutual advantage of the farmer and the bank selected some of the most enterprising young men of the community and told them he would lend them money to buy stock if they had sufficient feed to take care of the stock after it was put on the farm . It seems at that time there was little demand for a bank in the community as it was hemmed in on all sides by older banks long established . Bagley began to lend money , making careful examination in every instance , thoroughly investigating in order to learn who could be relied upon to , follow out his program and in a few years he changed the character of the community to such an extent that men who were formerly failures are today excellent...
The South Must Feed Itself : How Arkansas Is Waking UD [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
The South Must Feed Itself : How Arkansas Is Waking UD FOR years many business men and farmers of Arkansas recognized the need of a change in farming By E . J . Bodman Union Trust Co ., Little Rock , Ark . methods , but it required the European war and the consequent decline in demand and price of cotton , to crystallize the movement . A committee of business men and farmers was appointed to work out definite plans . It was recognized that to be successful , the campaign should be worked out along lines that would not carry radical changes . It was feared that the pendulum might swing too far and many people turn to new and untried crops without having sufficient knowledge to enable them to meet with success , and raise those things for which there was not an established market , only to . be disappointed and turned back to the one crop system never again to break away from it . Investigation disclosed the fact that more money was sent out of the state for food for man and beast tha...
Don ' t Destroy the Small Town Store [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
Don t Destroy the Small Town Store WHY shouldn t farmers belong to commercial clubs ? Why should they not do everything a town man does if they vote and expect to have the proper laws ? Show me a progressive , prosperous farming community , and I will show you a good , live market place somewhere near . It is a wise country merchant , indeed , who realizes and acknowledges that his prosperity depends upon the good will of the farmers , and the community in which he has established himself . The country merchant ought to confer with the farmer , and he ought to do everything in his power to make farming profitable , by aiding in the establishing of a good market in the home town ; and he should remember that the best kind of a farm produce market is the farmers cooperative elevator or warehouse . There is no getting away from the proposition . The village business man and the business farmer must get together . Their interests are so interwoven that they are dependent one upon the ot...
Best Credit Result of Character [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
Best Credit Result of Character ONE of the reasons why farmers as a whole don t have the credit to which they are really entitled is because they are victims of the custom of a generation ago , when the farmer borrowed money at the bank to be paid when I sell my hogs , or when I sell my wheat or my corn . Many farmers , not-realizing how times have changed , and that farm products can be cashed in any time when they are ready to go , keep up the old habit of paying when they please . Nothing annoys the banker more than that . He must keep his money going , if he is to make profits or dividends . He must know when it is coming in , so that he can promise it to go out . Don t strain your credit . Because a man has a credit of five hundred dollars is no reason why he should borrow six or seven hundred or a thousand . Strained credit is about as uncomfortable as a sprained ankle . It takes some time to heal in either case . Someone may say : What s the use of having credit , if you can ...
To Heln Farm Women [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
To Heln Farm Women WHEN there is money it seems that there is always something else to do with it , writes one woman pathetically . There is an extra machine of some kind , another horse to buy , or an extra barn to build , which are more important—or at least the men think they are more important—than a water supply for the house . I have been dreaming of a water supply for our home for years , but every year I am doomed to disappointment when there is another use found for the money . It is a pity that a man s outlook should be clouded until he can plan only for the welfare of his own sex on the farm . There are riding plows and riding cultivators and riding hay racks . There are hay loaders and there are devices to carry the hay to the farthest corner of the mow , where it formerly had to be pitched by men s strength . The farmer may answer that he has these to offset the labor scarcity . But that is not all , for he has materially increased the comforts of his own life . The wom...
State Associations at Work [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
State Associations at Work ( Continued from page 11 ) senting the various states , continue their general conferences , such as were held at Minneapolis and Kansas City . To me it is an inspiration to meet with a gathering of that character and it is also very educational , learning the trials , tribulations and successes of the different ones present . I think the beneficial results are much more than worth the effort . I would further suggest a plan of reporting on the part of agricultural committees of various states through the Agricultural Commission , and further that the Commission disseminate the information thus gathered from over the whole field back to workers in the various states . —H . L . HOPKINS , Chairman . TEXAS . —The work of the Agricultural Committee has centered on the following points : Livestock and diversified farming ; assisting the Texas Industrial Congress ; cooperation with the Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College and the State University in extensi...

v # 1 ^ . The Obligation of Service THERE must be a closer understanding and cooperation between the cities and the country , with a common purpose in view . You should cooperate with the farmers , not as patron with dependent , not as master with student , but as common citizens and co-laborers , animated by a common purpose , addressed to a common object , inspiring a feeling of fraternity and fellowship , of mutual trust and cooperation See that neither one nor the other is attempting to prey upon his fellow . The greatest obligation which any man owes is the obligation of service . —Senator Gore .
? <• ?> The Country Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915
? &lt;• ?&gt; The Country Banker OF all the men who serve a given community—the mechanic , the farmer , the merchant , the doctor , the teacher , the preacher , the lawyer—the country banker comes about as nearly being a necessity and the vital part of a community as any other member of it . He must have the very highest qualities of community leadership , too—for competition is keen . He must have faith in the town , based on a cold disillusioning knowledge of the bottom facts about the community . He must believe in men—against great odds —and he must have vision—vision that comes to one who sees things in the future and capitalizes what he sees with his courage . —William Allen White . ?&gt; ? ?&gt;

Why the Consolidated School is the Ideal School Plant [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915
Why the Consolidated School is the Ideal School Plant THE small one-teacher school has proved itself generally unable to mtet the needs of present agricultural demands . It was organized as a pioneer school and as such filled its place admirably . Scientific agriculture demands a school which not only teaches the general fundamentals of an education but its practical phases as well . This work can not be done in the old school plant and by the one teacher , at least not satisfactorily . | | ^ iiiLuiiiinHiLUbiL ( iuiiMMiiuuMuiuiLiL !

Education For Country Boys and Girls Must Face the Farm [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915
Education For Country Boys and Girls Must Face the Farm THE adaptation of education to useful purposes reaches its most complete failure in the rural By John A . Lapp Indiana Legislative Bureau schools which have been following a regimen of studies utterly unfitted to their environment . The teaching of elementary subjects in these schools has been formal to a degree that is shocking to common sense . Instead of relating these studies to the life motives of the young , and teaching them in such a way as to connect them with life ; instead of taking advantage of the opportunities which in the country are unequaled for applying knowledge to things , the schools have been allewing the children to live off the dry husks of knowledge . Teachers for these schools have been trained in the village or city high schools and have perhaps gone through formal training in normals or colleges . They have little sympathy with rural life and their knowledge of the country is limited . It is ridiculo...
Bankers to Hold Conference on Agriculture at Chicago in July [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915
Bankers to Hold Conference on Agriculture at Chicago in July THE American banker is heart and soul in the bankerfarmer movement . By his organizations and individually , he has cooperated in the campaign that is to bring a better and more profitable agriculture and a better country life . He can point with pride to his part in this work in the past . But he wants to do more . He wants to know how to do it . The backbone of the banker-farmer movement is the committee on agriculture and education of the bankers state associations . Where aggressive committees have their coats off and are busy , great progress is being made . Where individual bankers are working at close range with the man on the soil , that locality is certain to show the greatest results . If these committeemen , if these individual bankers , if all others who are at work , could get together to exchange experiences—to discuss the best plans for future work—it would be a big thing for agriculture . They ARE going to ...
