Relating the County Agent to Agricultural Education [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
Relating the County Agent to Agricultural Education THE big job of the agricultural college for the next few years is to plan wisely and in a large ior oi tne By Dean H . L . Russell University oi Wisconsin extension service way me iQuuaanons agricultural so that they will be permanent and successful . The extension work has developed with mushroom rapidity . If it is to be permanent and helpful , it must be guided , not left to run loose in any direction . Definite plans must be made for its rational and consistent development to yield most fruitful results and to safeguard the system from waste . The more difficult problem than the outlining of the . project is the question of workers . The stress of circumstances will often push the extension service to put green , inexperienced men into the work . This -is the gravest danger we have to fear . With a field so novel and new , there is an infinitely larger demand than supply and the pressure is always for expansion of work to be un...
What the Bankers Can Do for Livestock Production [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
What the Bankers Can Do for Livestock Production WE all recognize the importance of growing our meat . The good lady from down South told By Dean J . H . Skinner Purdue University you that they were importing northern beef to supply their people . It has only been about a year now since we were importing meat to supply the United States from a South American country . So I call your attention to the importance of meat growing as a food in thfs country , as a very vital matter to the country . Livestock is important to the citizens of the United States because it furnishes a large amount of employment to this country . Then again the industry is of importance because of the income , the business which it involves in this country . I never feel like making a talk on livestock without pointing out the importance of livestock in the maintenance of soil fertility . I want to call your attention to the utilization of the roughage that is grown all over this great Middle West and South thr...
County Agent Plan , After Three Years' Trial , Makes Good [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
County Agent Plan , After Three Years Trial , Makes Good THE County Agricultural Agent system , in so far as it applies to conditions in the northern and western states trial By W . A . Lloyd U . S . Dept . of Agriculture , nas now oeen on tor a period of about three years . It is fitting to express satisfaction at the generous and timely support rendered to this movement by such organizations as the American Bankers association which represent the attitude of what is usually termed the business interests toward the movement . Three years ago the work was experimental . Those who believed the movement was anything more than a doubtful experiment were thought to be visionary and over enthusiastic . The movement has had to run the gauntlet of criticism and attack that usually falls to the lot of any new idea . Had it not been for the cordial support of what is usually termed the business interests , the system could not have made the large growth it did during the years 1912 and 1913 ...

Building the Whole Community [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
Building the Whole Community ( Continued from page 12 ) in your individual community with real agricultural development , until you yourself would be willing to move with your family and children six miles out into the country and make that your home , and have as the only opportunity for the education of your family , the school which exists in that country community . There is the test and foundation of the whole mat ter , and while of course we think different kinds of schools would be fine for country people , the actual facts are that country folks want schools that they think are just like town schools . It is easier to give them what they want and to encourage them to get what they want , when the good thing of that is the starting point , than it is to hold up some beautiful scheme and try to put the whole system in at the outset . I am confident that a solution of the tenant problem depends upon schools . I might cite to you a dozen instances in Oklahoma . McLeod and Pottaw...
Consolidated Schools [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
Consolidated Schools ( Continued from page 17 ) we should have . Then that larger school will go farther in the development . It will allow us there a community center where we can have and hold our farmers institutes , our corn shows , our domestic science demonstrations , our club meetings , and all of those things , and that life is the one we need . Money alone will not keep the boys on the farm . It is shown it will take them away . Railroads have been built , commercial enterprises of one kind and another have sprung up . They have held out the almighty dollar and have said to the young man on the farm : Come into our line because we can offer you more money , more luxury of life , and you will have a better time . I want to say , they are going from the farm and they are going mighty fast . I know that to be true . We had some young men come from the farm into Purdue to take engineering , and not long ago I was down in Southern Indiana , and an old farmer came up to me and he...
How the Country Church Can Help [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
How the Country Church Can Help ( Continued from page 7 ) preacher is getting all the people down to his church . That will never do . He is proselyting . I heard of that and I said to the president : You just tell them to keep that organization going ior the good of the community . Never mind our people , and never mind me , and I will never come near , but you keep that thing going over there . It is a good thing for the community . He went back and told a great big broad shouldered farmer what the preacher said , and the old farmer said : We will keep this club going . We will keep the preacher here , but we will take those narrow people and we will twist their necks . That was not a good thing to do . They finally settled down . They have got all those malcontents into the club again and at work . Who was responsible for that malcontent ? This was a good work , but some preacher somewhere thought the Methodist preacher was getting too much out of it . I want to tell you the chur...

What John B . Smith Thought [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1915
What John B . Smith Thought MORE than once we have quoted the expressed belief of Mr . George E . Roberts that the banker-farmer movement was the most vital of all the activities of the American Bankers association . It must serve again as a text , for the interest with which the country followed the Conference in Chicago was a wonderful demonstration of its truth . We can well imagine John B . Smith of Iowa , the average citizen , passing over entirely the newspaper story of the conventional meeting of bankers , discussing merely the peculiar problems of their trade . But when these same bankers went outside their wickets and considered problems that John B . Smith realized were his own , as well as every other citizen s , . he was interested . More than likely his mental picture of the average banker was a reflection of the traditional cartoon figure of the capitalist —a portly gentleman invariably with side-burns , intrenched forbiddingly behind a breastwork of money-bags . If th...
