o How the Motion Picture is Going to Help Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

o How the Motion Picture is Going to Help Agriculture THE banker-farmer movement has a new recruit—a powerful one—a recruit which will prove of inestimable value in the great campaign for a better agriculture and country life . Attention , let us present—The Motion Picture ! Yes , the movie is going to help . And what is more , persons who are hard-headed and far-seeing , who are always slow to throw up their hats and give three cheers , believe that enlisting the movie as an agent will add one of the most important allies that has ever been drafted into service They believe that the motion picture , adapted to this purpose , will prove an important , permanent contribution to the cause of agriculture . Have you seen nothing in the picture craze , except the opportunity to thrill at the skeenteenth Misadventure of Mortified Mabel ?

What a Bank ' s Corn Contest Accomplished for an Iowa County [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

What a Bank s Corn Contest Accomplished for an Iowa County THIS is the story of a remarkable corn contest conducted by an Iowa bank . The word remarkable is used advisedly . The contest was remarkable for the amount of money , brains and time that the bank put in it—for the interest aroused among the farmers—and above all , for the benefits to the whole community which resulted . The bank was the Leavitt and Johnson National Bank of Waterloo , Iowa . The contest occupied all of last year . It was so successful that the agricultural extension department of Iowa State College at Ames , Iowa , has issued a bulletin devoted to it . Waterloo is in Blackhawk county . The bank estimated that an increase of one bushel per acre would add 100 , 000 bushels to the total yield of the corn crop annually , which meant , on the basis of fifty cents a bushel , an addition of $ 50 , 000 to the annual net income of the county . And the better care of seed corn and the substitution of better varieties...

Cooperation Between Landlord and Tenant ; a Big Problem [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

Cooperation Between Landlord and Tenant ; a Big Problem THAT there should be a close cooperation between the owners of our . highpriced land and the men farming it , By O . S . Fisher University of Illinois goes without question . What is for the good of the one will benefit the other , yet we hardly ever find the harmony of interest and the close and profitable cooperation that there should be in the handling of our farms . Where does the fault lie ? How can it be remedied ? A good many persons will say it is the fault of our evermoving tenantry , that the average tenant is not on the land long enough to take a real interest in the farm . This is true to some extent , and it is a fact that to a great many tenants the farm is nothing more than a mine , to be worked to the limit for a year or two , without any thought as to the final affect on the farm itself . However , all the fault cannot be placed at the feet of the tenant , and I have very grave doubts if , in a great many cases...

The Chicago Conference [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

The Chicago Conference IT is fraught with the greatest possibilities for good of any gathering of an agricultural nature ever fathered by the American banker . Since the last Conference was held , the banker-farmer- movement has been gathering a great impetus . It is penetrating to every nook and corner of the country . Daily we receive letters of inquiry from bankers asking advice . They want to know how to help . It is of the utmost importance that this great force should be wisely directed—that it should concentrate its energies to accomplish the most good . Cooperation in making this Conference successful will be a patriotic service . On top of all the other momentous reasons which actuate the activity of the banker is the great reflection that whatever problems , foreign or local , with which the United States must grapple in the unknown future , the country will be better prepared if it develops its agricultural resources . It was the sense of a majority of the most active sta...

The "Movie" at Last [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

The Movie at Last MANY bankers have longed for a series of motion pictures on agricultural and country life subjects , which could be shown in their towns . They clearly recognized the big fact that ip is easy to induce persons to come to see the movies . Down in Missouri , the Bank of Harrisonville exhibited the Dawn of Plenty , with such splendid success and . response from the farmers , that the business men of the town decided to hold a movie day every week and invite the farmers in . We have seen a snap shot of the crowd waiting for the movies to open—farmers and their families in autos , carriages and afoot . This was just one example of the possibilities of the field . The big question was : Where will the agricultural films come from ? The state colleges of agriculture liked the idea but there were obstacles in the way of their cooperation as producers of the films . So the Illinois Bankers association has blazed the way . It has so impressed a man who knows how to plan pict...

Why the Farmers Strike [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

Why the Farmers Strike HERBERT QUICK is a clear-headed , practical observer . He contributed to the Saturday Evening Post on May 8 , an article that should be read by every banker and farmer , nay more , by every citizen . He styled this article , The Great Farmers Strike , and How it Can be Settled . You didn t know that the farmers had struck ? Mr . Quick says the farmers are quitting their jobs and moving to town just as fast as they can . He advises us to visit any city , town or village , in a rich , agricultural community and count the retired farmers . This strike has been going on for a generation or more . Once seventyfive per cent of our people were farmers . Now the proportion has fallen to one-third . What has caused this strike ? Let Mr . Quick answer : The retired farmer , in three cases out of four , has left the farm in order that his children may have better school facilities . The worst schools in the United States are the rural schools that have always , as typifi...

Why the Business Farmer Will Build With Concrete—It Pays [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

Why the Business Farmer Will Build With Concrete—It Pays JUST what does the use of concrete construction mean to the farmer , ana wnat aoes it mean to tne tarmer s banker . it means that the farmer is gradually building up indestructible assets —adding each year something of enduring value to his farm instead of doing the old time wasteful repairing , repainting and rebuilding year after year , of structures which were always in danger of total destruction in case of fire , flood or cyclone . Take , for example , the usual general-purpose barnyard . Under the old regime it was a mudhole during the greater portion of the year . The farmer wore rubber boots in those days . Horses and cattle waded through mire and filth . Corn was cheap and was thrown down in the place that happened to be the driest on each particular morning . The hogs ate what they wanted , if they didn t lose it in the mud , and got disease germs along with it . The modern farmer does differently . He buys a few sac...

The Farmer and His Money ; Borrowing , Saving and Spending [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

The Farmer and His Money ; Borrowing , Saving and Spending You Can t Legislate Character THIS advance in the amount of fixed and working capita ! has not only brought with it tenantry , but it has brought with it a demand for credit , both short-time and longtime , and for some system of amortization which will enable the tenant who has fixed himself in the community to buy the land , with payments extending over a long period ol years , at a reasonable rate of interest . How shall this credit be obtained ? That is a problem confronting the western people just now . Credit means financial trustworthiness . Therefore , ic is a part of character , and you can not legislate character into men . You must either develop working capital by the slow way of earning it , and that requires character in the Droadest sense of the word , or you must convince men who have money to lend that you are trustworthy . Without this financial trustworthiness , credit will not be given ; and it would be a...

From the Firing Line of the States [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

From the Firing Line of the States AGRICULTURE was the big topic at the recent conventions of the bankers state associations . Take Arkansas , for instance . Even the menu for its banquet was a reminder that Arkansas must feed herself . It was covered with drawings of cows , chickens , fruits , corn , alfalfa and whatnot . Last year the Tennessee Bankers Association gave to three young persons scholarships in the Knapp School of Country Life at Nashville . It has renewed the offer . The committee on agriculture is pleased because its campaign for county agents has been so successful—Tennessee now has thirty-four agents . Continue THE BANKER-FAR-MER is the closing word from the committee . Michigan bankers have urged the organization of more boys corn and potato clubs . In a bulletin , the committee on agriculture said : According to the report of last years work , the corn champion in the state was a boy , who raised 219 % bushels of cob corn to the acre . The average yield of corn ...

Our Best Schools—and the Worst [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

Our Best Schools—and the Worst THE best schools in the United States are those maintained for certain groups of negroes , for lunatics , for the feeble-minded , for Indians , for deaf-mutes and the blind , for convicts , and for incorrigible boys and girls in reformatories . Away off in the Philippines we have established better rural schools than those of New England or Wisconsin . The worst schools in the United States are the rural schools that have always , as typified in that mythical building , the little red schoolhouse , been pointed to with pride , when they should have been viewed with alarm . What we need in this country most of all things earthly is the success of the great movement now taking place among the country people themselves , for giving to our honest , moral rural youth the advantages forced on the colored , the incorrigible and the insane . At a baseball game one day I heard a criticism from the bleachers that went right to the core of our American system of ...

•> •> ?> To Double Farm Capacity ALFALFA and the silo are two of the best known agencies for doubling the capacity of our farms . When on pasture all livestock makes the greatest gain and growth ; cows produce their heaviest flow of milk . The well filled silo gives us a succulent feed for winter that comes nearer taking the place of summer s grass than any other ration fed to our cattle . The farmers of this country are making use of only about 25 per cent of the roughage of our cornfields . The silo will stop a portion of this waste . In these days of high priced feed and higher priced land no farm can afford to be without a silo .

This Bank Employs a Field Agent—Other Bank Activities [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

This Bank Employs a Field Agent—Other Bank Activities AN agricultural field agent on the staff of a bank to develop the agriculture of its county is the newest banker-farmer activity . Charles P . Holland , president of the Monmouth County Trust company of Brockton , Massachusetts , is deeply interested in agriculture . He believed great good could be done if the bank could secure a man to go out and demonstrate to the farmer the advantages of using the best methods . He realized this man should be trained to deal with farmers . So Murray K . Lincoln , formerly a county agent in Connecticut , was secured . The field agent works with the farmers and the boys and girls clubs to improve agriculture in every possible manner . The agent is also seeking to work out a satisfactory method to loan money for agricultural purposes . He proceeds on the plan that there is no use to loan money to a farmer unless there is a certainty that the money will be used for a productive purpose . The agent...
