Why the American Banker is Trying to Help Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

Why the American Banker is Trying to Help Agriculture IF hitherto we have not felt that vital necessity , these last few months have convinced every By B . F . Harris Chairman s Address to Conference thoughtful American that we must have a conscious , consistent and persistent plan of cooperation and coordination between all the constructive and productive and progressive classes of our people . Failing this , the heart and soul of our republic is gone , and with it prosperity and national honor , and life . Germany , Denmark and Switzerland have long demonstrated the power of centralized , coordinated effort , economically , industrially , sanguinarily . These are the days when only the prepared man and the prepared nation wins . Why should this great nation , the hope of our fathers and of all Christendom , fail to be prepared in every way—prepared that a happy destiny may be ours—prepared against internal troubles , as well as against outside aggressors ? Why should we fail of in...

? ? ? The New Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

? ? ? The New Agriculture By Carl Vrooman Assistant Secretary of Agriculture BARRING hunting and fishing , farming is perhaps the oldest of vocations . Certainly it is the most vital of vocations . Yet from the dawn of history to within the memory of men now living , farming as an art made comparatively little progress . There are Americans alive today who have cut wheat with the sickle , a tool that was of immemorial antiquity when Ruth gleaned in the fields of Boaz . There are men in Illinois still , I dare say , who won t admit that you can grow alfalfa successfully in the cornbelt . The Old Agriculture has been with us a very long while , and it will take us a long time yet to shake ourselves wholly free | from its habits and traditions , but in our day we have at least begun to break its bonds . The New Agriculture has been a long time coming but it s on the march now . By the New Agriculture I don t mean merely agronomy—the science of growing big crops . I mean not only that ,...

How the Banker is Trying to Help Agriculture and Rural Life [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

How the Banker is Trying to Help Agriculture and Rural Life BANKERS state associations agricultural committees have been busily engaged advising and en By J . R . Wheeler Member Agricultural Commission couragmg individual banks and bankers to cooperate with the colleges of agriculture , to induce farmers to take advantage and put into practice the vast amount of knowledge at hand . A vast amount of valuable work has been accomplished . Probably the most pretentious and constructive work done by any one bank was the Conference and Corn Show of the Corn Exchange National Bank of Philadelphia . It distributed $ 1250 in prizes to boys . This did much to arouse interest in the banker-farmer movement throughout the United States . Not the least result was the effect on the country bankers . Many came to see that agri- - cultural development must be all important if a great city bank is willing to spend so much time and money on it . Because of its influence , Wisconsin bankers have decide...

How the Country Church Can Help Agriculture and Country Life [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

How the Country Church Can Help Agriculture and Country Life THE farmer , unless he is a very religious man , thinks the preacher is the laziest , the most thoroughly By Rev . W . W . Diehl Hinckley , Illinois overted and underworked brute in the community . I was reared on a farm . I am a graduate of the Michigan Agricultural College . I have taught school in the country . I preach in a rural community . I elect to do so because I think it is the best place on the footstool of God to invest a human life . The first thing we did was to organize a Rural Life Progress Club No . 1 . The purpose was five-fold . All members were to do something every year to improve the fertility of the soil ; to improve the buildings upon the farm ; to increase the quality of the livestock ; to raise the standard of life and living conditions for the family , and to do something together to improve some community condition . One of the officers was a cooperative agent . When they came to that word coope...

How the American Banker Can Help the Women of the Farm [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

How the American Banker Can Help the Women of the Farm I LIVE on a farm ten miles from a station , fifteen miles from a By Mrs . Nellie Kedzie Jones meat market , and I know what some of the problems are that face the farm women . I wish you bankers would remember first , last and always , that there should be a partnership of two on every farm to take hold and help . I wish you would remember that when you go to talk to the farmer about supplying him with money to do this , that or the other thing , that you would see to it that the farmer s wife comes in and hears all the talk . She won t come unless you ask her . Her husband , many , many times , will go and talk it over with her afterwards , but he won t think to insist that she come in and hear all the talk . I believe it is in the hands of the banker , the man who is going to help furnish the money , who is going to help improve the farm , to insist that the wife know all the conditions . She has got to sign the mortgage . She...

Rural Education , the Old and New , and National Efficiencv [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

Rural Education , the Old and New , and National Efficiencv 1 SPEAK for national conservation . This has been in recent years a much-used , and snmetimps a mnrh By Herbert Quick Editor Farm and Fireside abused expression . Usually , it has been adopted to express the notion of saving waste , preventing non-use , disuse , or misuse of our natural material resources—such things as the minerals in the earth , the water-power from the hills and mountains , the forests , the waterways , the swamp and overflowed lands . These are important , and we have taken some important steps in their conservation ; but on the whole , the great conservation movement has petered out . It has lost its punch . Its bugles no longer call enthusiastic hosts to its colors . Like some men of whom we have been told it has a great future behind it . Our national life is better , our government is cleaner , our national conscience is tenderer , the prospects for a perfected future for America are better than the...

Note IT is impossible to contain in one issue the wealth of material produced by the Conference , so a number of addresses are withheld until the September issue .

Mathis Field Agent Alabama Bankers ants are black , but probably more than half of them are white . I am not just sure but what that white man gives rather more concern than the black man . At least he comes at us from a new standpoint and you can t handle him like you handle the black man . I decided one thing quite early , and that was the man that tilled the land was my partner ; that I have my money in the land and he has his money in the stock and tools . I am going to look after my end of the business , and I want him to look after his end , and for that reason he really and truly is my partner . If there is one thing above another that concerns Alabama it is the tenant , because a very large proportion of our population is that class of people . We have in Alabama about two million people , 400 , 000 livi...

The Land , the Landlord , the Tenant—and the Leasing System [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

The Land , the Landlord , the Tenant—and the Leasing System ONE problem in which every man , woman and child in the United States is deeply interested , whether By Henry Wallace Editor Wailace s Farmer he lives in country ,, town or city , is the maintenance of the fertility of the soil . It is from the soil that our people must for the most part be fed and clothed . The production of food and the material for clothing are largely measured by fertility . It is more important now to maintain our fertility than ever before . As a nation we owe it to ourselves and to posterity to become more nearly self-sustaining both in food , clothing and manufactured products . If we are not to be dependent on other nations for goods , we must increase and develop largely our manufactures , and this will draw more and more heavily on the products of the . soil for food . We have for the last two hundred years been simply skimming the cream off our soils ; mining them , so to speak , and selling the...

Why the Banker and the Farmer Should Build Up the Home Town [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

Why the Banker and the Farmer Should Build Up the Home Town THERE are at least twice as many people living in our smaller cities , towns and villages as live in citiesj By J . R . Moorehead See y Southwestern Lumbermens Assn . oi our nicy great . . ne name our tarming population living about these smaller cities and towns is just twice as great as the city market . Yet we hear much that would lead one to believe that all of the people in this country to be fed by the producers on the farm are to be found in the great centers where the high cost of living seems now , more than ever , the one great thing talked about , and to be considered . Yet , the home market of the farmer is his largest and best market , right at his door where he can bring his produce every working day in the year and sell it to the consumer direct , without the intervention of any middleman whatsoever , and secure therefor every cent without any profit or commission to any middleman whatsoever .

Christie Purdue University appearing . Last year 40 per cent of the Indiana farm boys and girls attended the larger consolidated schools . Our people believe in consolidation . In 1910 we had 446 consolidated schools . In 1914 that number had grown to 665 , so that last year we took care of 40 per cent of all the farm boys and girls in these larger institutions . Now I want to ask if we have a consolidated school that is built of good material in a good locality , in which we place the agricultural laboratory and the domestic science laboratory , a school that is able to pay a salary of $ 1200 to $ 1500 to a high class welltrained teacher of agriculture , to another of domestic science , to another in manual training , and to other teachers of equal ability for the other subjects , all under a superintendent wh...

Principles and Pro fits in Soil Improvement [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915

Principles and Pro fits in Soil Improvement IT will be accepted as a self-evident truth that impoverished soil yields no profits , either to agriculture , to By Dr . Cyril G . Hopkins University of Illinois industry , or to commerce ; and , consequently , that continued prosperity for the masses in America depends . primarily upon the maintenance and improvement of the productive power of our farm lands , for agriculture is the basic support of this great nation . Land whose gross return in yearly crop values amounts to only $ 4 or $ 5 per acre cannot support a system of soil enrichment , except the materials are supplied at the lowest possible cost . It is impossible , as a rule , for the owners of poor land to pay large profits to producers and to transportation companies for those materials which are essential for the improvement of their lands . This is a fundamental truth or principle which ought more generally to be recognized by men of influence . Thus the railroad company th...

A Neglected Phase of the Rural Problem—the Social Phase THE whole rural problem is summed up in the matter of the development of a satisfying life on the By Dr . Clarence Poe . Editor Progressive Farmer farm , and that life must be both financially and socially satisfying . As Dr . T . N . Carver has reminded us , just where the lands are richest , the crops most abundant and the farmers have attained the highest degree of prosperity , are the very sections from which the land-owning farmers are retiring fastest and leaving the land to tenants . Now , we are not going to give money to the farmers ; we can only see that he gets a larger share of what he justly earns , and in an unorganized society like that of the farmers every man must simply get the results of his own efforts . If we are not going to do anything more for the farmer except what we can do to improve his financial condition , you will find the same results everywhere—that the wealthier farmers will move off to where m...
