Why the Country Church Must Keep Step With the Times IT becomes clear that he who in any way contributes to the uplift of rural life , performs one of the finest ser Bv Rev . W . W . Diehl Hinckley , 111 . W . Diehl n , vices within the reach of man . Many agencies are now at work on the splendid task of creating this new type of rural civilization . What can the church do to aid in furthering this noble work ? First of all , the church must supply a new type of rural minister . Religiously , country people are not having a fair chance . As a general rule , clergymen avoid as far as possible work in rural sections . They regard the country parish as undesirable , offering limited opportunity for men of culture , capacity and worthy ambition . Laymen both in the city and country alike , share in holding this false and most pernicious opinion . Only rarely do we find ministers of wide culture , superior intellectuality and large capacity for leadership spending their time in a rural p...

Boys and Girls [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

Boys and Girls WHEN the American magazine of supposedly only popular sphere begins the publication of monthly articles dealing with the wiork that boys and girls clubs are doing for agriculture and country life , it is another sign that everybody outside of the cemetery is interested in agriculture , as A . P . Sandles of Ohio expressed it at the banker-farmer conference . The banker , who is interested in the younger generation , as he ought to be , will find inspiration in this series . O . H . Benson s splendid article in the September BANKER-FARMER has already brought many bankers into the work . Herbert Quick—we seem to be unable to get out of the habit of quoting him , because he has a habit , too , a habit of speaking the truth clearly and concretely—introduced the American series thus : The great revival in farming among youth is most significant because it is winning the hearts of the young people back to the farm . . Why ? Because it is teaching them the great truth that f...

Citizenship and Cooperation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

Citizenship and Cooperation IF our banker-farmer movement has sounded a new note in national life , as a great Chicago daily states , and Bostons oldest daily enthuses on our Hyphen of Promise and a conspicuous New York paper opines that our bankerfarmer platform may be the soundest bit of economic thought there is —and most of the rest of the press of the country endorses your efforts- in this great work in similar terms—will all this not encourage you to press on with greater energies ? Our banker-farmer program proceeds on the theory that if we are to be a truly great and permanent nation , we must build up a great national life ; that while this work lies all about us the very largest field is in the country surrounding our country banks . And all this is to come through real aggressive citizenship and hearty and wholesome cooperation —the two chiefest planks in our platform . —The Chairman of the Agricultural Commission to the American Bankers Association Convention .

How An Iowa Farmhand Revolutionized a Country School [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

How An Iowa Farmhand Revolutionized a Country School JIM IRWIN was only a farmhand on an Iowa farm . . But he knew that the farm ought to be the place for the best kind of a career . He loved the soil . He dreamed a dream of a truly rural , rural school—a school that would get education out of the things the farmers and the farmers wives are interested in as a part of their lives , such as dairying , soil management , corn growing and farm manual training for boys ; and sewing , cooking and housekeeping for the girls —and even caring for babies ! Why does it give the children any greater mastery of the printed page to read about Casablanca on the burning deck , than about the cause of the firing of the corn by hot weather ? he asked . And how can they be given better command of language than by writing about things they have found out in relation to some of the sciences which are laid under contribution by farming ? Everything they do runs into numbers , and we do more arithmetic th...

Do you run a stereotyped , conventional card , which is so seldom changed that , to quote the parlance of the composing room , it has whiskers on it ?

What Bankers are Doing to Help Agriculture and Rural Life [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

What Bankers are Doing to Help Agriculture and Rural Life A TEXAS banker is demonstrating the opportunity of the banker to cooperate in improving educational conditions . He is Joseph Hirsch , of the Corpus Christi National bank , who is not content to rest on his laurels just because he is a member of the Agricultural Commission of the American Bankers association and president of the Texas Bankers asspciatipn . At a recent meeting of the teachers institute in his county , Mr . Hirsch presented each teacher of a country school with a copy of the August number of this magazine , containing the addresses delivered at the Banker-Farmer Conference in Chicago . Addressing the institute , he read extracts from the stirring address on rural education by Herbert Quick and urged the establishment of an agricultural high school . Now Texas has several rural high schools and agriculture is taught in the schools , under the law , but as yet there is no agricultural high school in that county ....

Why Pennsylvania Bankers Should Cooperate With the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

Why Pennsylvania Bankers Should Cooperate With the Farmer THE farmer of today often hesitates to adopt suggestions offered bv evnerts and iinivprcitv r » rr » f # » c By L . T . McFadden First National Bank , Canton , Pa . sors , for fear that they are not practical and are too expensive to adopt . The average farmer wants to be shown , I would , therefore , suggest to you who own farm land , that you try out modern ideas on your own farms ; in other words , make your farms demonstration fields and prove your vision , and you will soon find that your neighbors will profit by your best ideas and will in turn put them into practical use on their own operations , and the results will speak more forcefully than volumes of farm literature scattered among your farmer friends . I sincerely believe that every business man should not only spend some time , but money to develop better farming in his own immediate vicinity . The business man and the banker should cooperate with the farmer in i...

Club Cooperates with Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

Club Cooperates with Farmer THE Kleberg County Commercial club was organized , having in view the idea oi getting every merchant and farmer in the county to join . Through tne urganiza- < tion of this club was born the idea of community development . Here we unanimously decided to drop tne words 1 And me and myself and use instead WE . Our idea for this was to eliminate the line or barrier of distinction • between the business man and the farmer . To accomplish • our purpose , we called a community meeting at une of the school houses about seven miles from Kingsville , inviting all of the farmers to attend . Our president , at that time , made • a speech on cooperation , dwelling on the point of importance of the farmer and the merchant getting closer together , as their interests were identical , or should be , in their duty to • do some public service or good for the general community . A farmer got up and said , with a great deal of sarcasm , that he was expressing the...

The Country Boy ' s Creed [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

The Country Boy s Creed 1 believe that the Country , which God made , is more beautiful than the City , which man made ; that life out-of-doors and in touch with the earth is the natural life of man . 1 believe that work is work wherever we find it , but that work with Nature is more inspiring than work with the most intricate machinery . I believe that the dignity of labor depends not on what you do , but on how you do it ; that opportunity comes to a boy on the farm as often as to a boy in the city ; that life is larger and freer and happier on the farm than in the town ; that my success depends not upon my location , but upon myself—not upon my dreams , but upon what I actually do—not upon luck , but upon pluck . I believe in working when you work , and in playing when you play , and in giving and demanding a square deal in every act of life . — Edwin Osgood Grover . ? •> •> Rural America Finding Itself THE American Bankers association has an Agricultural Co...

What a Good Home Means [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1915

What a Good Home Means ( Continued from page 3 ) which hasi perfected the rural school and given to the rural teacher the teachers cottage . I think too that the country church can do a great deal to help the community . There must be a social side . The men and women must have more recreation . No life is well lived unless it has its play time . There must be recreation in the country home . Homemaking means more than housekeeping . It means that everyone must get together and bring joy and gladness and a big deep friendliness into the life of the country people . Great things are being done for the country community—fine roads being built , rural delivery , better schools , stronger churches , but the home has not kept up with the procession . If the farmer is doing better things on the farm , of what use is it , if it is not used in part to give better things in the home ? He is happiest , be he king or peasant , who finds peace in his home . When the housekeeper does not know ho...
