How The Bankers Can Help [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

How The Bankers Can Help By Henry Wallace Editor Wallace s Farmer . T HE best and most effective way is to do good farming on the lands they own or control ; good farming not for the present merely , but for the future as well . There is no teaching so effective as example . There is no class of men who can apply the recognized principles of agriculture more effectively than bankers and business men . They have the means . Their operations are not likely to be crippled by the failure of any one crop nor by the crops of any one year . They are in closer touch with the business world than farmers are , and have a better opportunity of acquainting themselves with movements the world over , which may affect the prices of farm products . The banker can do a good deal to improve farming by subscribing for and carefully reading first class agricultural papers , reports of experiment stations and the literature of the Department of Agriculture . Thus having tasted and found that it was good...

Consolidated School Ideal Plant [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

Consolidated School Ideal Plant ( Continued from page 2 ) Probably the greatest service of the consolidated school to the teaching profession is that it extends opportunities to men teachers to reenter the schools . Every rural school in Denmark , to cite a European illustration , provides the teacher with a comfortable home , a well-planned garden , and sometimes with larger tracts of land . The natural result is that the schools are taught by professional teachers of long tenure in the same community , four out of five being men , most of them married and rearing families . The well-equipped consolidated schools are beginning to accomplish exactly this same thing for the . United States . Teachers cottages should be erected in connection with all consolidated schools—and , for that matter , in connection with all rural schools . The principal , at least , should be paid by the year , and should be held responsible for the school plant 12 months out of the year . This will make for...

Motion Picture to Help Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1915

Motion Picture to Help Agriculture ( Continued from page 5 ) pictures he uses . A good plan would be to get the manager to set aside one afternoon and evening each week for the pictures . By doing this the people would know when the pictures would be exhibited , and this would simplify the publicity and make it easy for farmers and their families to attend . These motion pictures are an important contribution t > education and to human betterment . The desire is to have them exhibited throughout the United States and to have as many people as possible see them . Many places may wish to exhibit the series a second time , for a picture which contains good information can be seen more than once with profit . Aside from showing the pictures in theaters and clubs and at special gatherings , it is expected that the series will be used in schools and colleges indefinitely .

The Platform Bankers and Farmers Must Stand On [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

The Platform Bankers and Farmers Must Stand On First—Education Greatest , of all is Education . The great constructive work we all must urge is based on education fitted to the needs of citizenship . As a whole , the poorest schools , many of which could be consolidated , and the poorest teachers ( largely because they are underpaid ) are in the country and villages . The Country Life Commission reported these schools largely responsible for ineffective farming , lack of ideals and the drift to town . From principles of citizenship and equality , as well as because we want to build up country life , we must place the country boy and girl on the same footing in the grades with those in town , and bring all our schools to the highest point of efficiency . It means in effect that a larger measure of aid must be given to the largest number of children who are in school for the shortest period , irrespective of location , with more facilities for the elementary education of the many , ye...

What the Banker-Farmer Movement Is Doing For the Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

What the Banker-Farmer Movement Is Doing For the Banker NO man liveth unto himself alone—nor by bread alone . By B . F . Harris These words are truer today—at least they are more keenly appreciated and more necessity is found for their consideration and application . The farther we pass from the days of the decalogues and the prophets , the closer we come to the eternal truths , through their seasoning by the centuries . An age of efficiency and service—to be that age —has been required , not unwillingly , to accept these eternal truths as the guide of business—the rule of reason as well as the rule of faith , and the banker shall not be the last tti be led bv them . Mail has two great concerns in life : one , the conquest of his environment ; the other to express apd to interpret what life means to him . It is possible for bankers , who are generally well advanced in that conquest of environment , to demonstrate that a fuller life means also a more complete conquest of the forces w...

The Banker-Farmer , as the Farm Journal Editor Sees Him [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

The Banker-Farmer , as the Farm Journal Editor Sees Him Bankers and Improved Country Life THE State Bankers Association of Illinois recently met at Carmi . Mr . R . L . Crampton , the secretary , projected a campaign for community betterment , advocating a speedy improvement in the conditions in the agricultural districts of the state . He regards community efficiency as the keynote of the bankers efforts for the coming year . He believes that this community efficiency can be secured by bettering the social conditions , improving the health , better roads , and the adoption of modern agricultural methods ; and that the result of this would be to keep the boys at home . The bankers are this time on the right track The complaint that farm young folks almost universally make is that there is no satisfactory social life in the country , and they want to go to town . Hence these bankers are getting down to the real nub of the matter : How to make the social life on the farm more attracti...

The Real Country Life School—the Consolidated School [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

The Real Country Life School—the Consolidated School NO finer challenge for service is presented today than the challenge of • the open country for leadership . By O . J . Kern University of California This leadership is the most important factor in the reconstruction of the industrial and social life of country people . All forms of institutional life may be redirected and enrichc * through the efforts of men and women who have vision ana power . The opportunities are many for those who have a , real love for country life . This leadership must be of the soil and trained for the soil . This development and training must come in an educational institution located in the country , an institution that is a social center for a new community life . All praise to the work of the agricultural college and its efficiency will increase as the years go by . But it cannot do all the work in making a better country life .

To Keep the Boy at Home [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

To Keep the Boy at Home LAST month we published a cartoon on our front page . It was entitled , To Keep the Boy at Home and it showed the farm boy deserting the country with its broken down little red school house , to the despair of his father . Uncle Sam was asking : Why don t you try this ? pointing to the Consolidated School . This cartoon was far from being a masterpiece of art—but it seems to have helped drive home another point in the campaign for better education in the country . For we have received many letters from bankers , asking for the loan of the cut , to be used in their work to secure better schools . We are much impressed with the cartoon on your front cover , wrote Mr . N . W . Pike , of the Mapleton Trust and Savings Bank , Mapleton , Iowa . We want to run it on the front page of our local newspaper . The picture will help to create favorable sentiment . We have been publishing articles on consolidation every week in the local newspaper for two months . The peop...

More Fellowship for Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

More Fellowship for Farmers DR . CLARENCE FOE quotes approvingly this idea brought out by Dr . T . N . Carver : It is not the hard work or the exposure or even the poverty of the farmer or his wife which makes farm life so unattractive to so many of our people . It is the lack of team work . I have never known men and women , particularly young men and women of our race , to shrink from hardship if they could feel the touch of elbows and have the sense of comradeship which the soldier has . Our boys and girls as well as the men and women of the farm should develop team work . They should get together and work together for a common cause as the soldiers . Touch elbows with your neighbors , and get the sense of comradeship as soldiers do . Dr . Poe suggests that getting together will pay not only dividends of cash but also of happiness . He is right . There is no truer joy than that of comradeship . Ulterior * Motives IT is worth the while of every banker and every farmer to read on a...

The Commercial Clubs [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915

The Commercial Clubs THE Commercial Club of Lewiston , Idaho , has decided that better results will come from developing its agricultural resources than from merely advertising for new settlers . So it plans , among other things , to organize a farmers auxiliary ; to engage a county agent ; to start an experimental farm ; and to buy livestock for sale to farmers . This is a pretty ambitious program . It isn t the hurrah kind , like the traditional booster movement of the business men s organization . But if carried out to any extent it is bound to produce big results . The Lewiston club has evidently learned the lesson that most of its fellow organizations fail to acquire—that developing agricultural resources is just about the most important task that these clubs can set themselves to do . Without Interest MANY bankers are encouraging the adoption of silos by loaning money to farmers to build them . Some of these bankers are even waiving interest charges For instance , in this issu...
