How Bankers State Associations Work for Agricultuer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1916
How Bankers State Associations Work for Agricultuer Vermont Joins Banker-Farmer Ranks E NTER Vermont . Another eastern state has been inspired to join the banker-farmer movement . . The Vermont Bankers association at its recent annual meeting created a committee on agriculture and made an appropriation to assist the committee . In his annual address President McFarland made a strong plea for cooperation between bankers and farmers : The slogan of the new religion is cooperation . It is in the air . Cooperation not only between men doing the same business as between banker and banker , farmer and farmer , but between banker and farmer and between men of all kinds of business . As another has said , not cooperation but intercooperation , one group of men acting for and with another group of men , having in view not alone financial betterment but better and more sanitary homes , better schools , better roads , improved social conditions and that general uplift which means a better civi...

How a Pennsylvania Bank has Popularized its Corn Contests AGRICULTURAL contests increase in popularity . An instance of the success of this banker-farmer work is afforded by the Pennsylvania Trust company of Reading , Pennsylvania , which holds an annual corn contest .

With the exception of a special class of 30-ear exhibits , ea...

What the Bankers Can Do to Help [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1916
What the Bankers Can Do to Help ( Continued from page 3 ) to the county agent movement for the farmer . They can render an even greater contribution by backing up this progressive movement in behalf of the farm home . We hear it said often enough that the prosperity of a nation depends upon its agriculture but I say to you that the success of agriculture depends in turn upon the success of the farm home and whether or not the farm home shall have value depends upon the mother within the home . She is an important pivot . Upon her swings not only the destiny of agriculture but the destiny of the nation . The moral and financial support which the banker can render to the farm mother will help to transform the face of rural life . Larger leisure will leave the mother free to grow in mind and spirit ; to contribute her power to the growth of her family and her neighbors families . Thus will the bankers play a great part in completely Americanizing our agricultural life . They will be he...

Better Citizenship Will Bring A Greater National Efficiency [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
Better Citizenship Will Bring A Greater National Efficiency THERE never has been a time in the history of Democracy when the responsibilities of citizenship have been greater than they are today . It has never been eur duty to see more clearly the privileges which are our heritage from those men of ideals and imagination who brought this country into being . The sturdy life and high standards of these men , working with our natural resources , have brought from our fertile lands commodities which are the basis of our prosperity and are today the principal articles of export throughout the world . Never in our history has it been our duty to realize more vividly the full measure of responsibility which citizenship has placed upon us . In the citizenship relation in this country there lies the very foundation of our Democracy . Sovereignty , the right to take a part in the government , is a privilege for which men throughout all the ages have struggled and died ; this right lies withi...
The Obligation of Service for the Nation in Time of Danger [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
The Obligation of Service for the Nation in Time of Danger THE obligations of citizenship are very broad . The idea that citizenship is a matter which is almost By Leonard Wood Major-General , U . S . A . wholly concerned with the rights of the citizen and his obligations from the purely civic side has grown to such an extent that it has overshadowed almost altogether the influence of that other form of obligation which every citizen owes to his country . I refer to the obligation of service for the nation in time of difficulty and danger—in time of war , if need be . While advocating urgently the rights of citizenship we have forgotten to a large extent many of its obligations . Free democracy and representative government has rested and always must rest , if it is to stand the strain and stress of struggle—war itself , if need be—upon an appreciation and acceptance by the people of the basic principle that manhood suffrage means manhood obligation for service , that with the right...
Let Us Revive the Best Spirit of American Citizenship [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
Let Us Revive the Best Spirit of American Citizenship 1 AM glad that the first plank in the Banker-Farmer platform is Citizenship and that it precedes even the By J . A . Sleicher Editor Leslie s Weekly plank ot Cooperation . This country is great but it will be greater , grander and prouder when the full significance of Citizenship is realized by its people . National pride is always commendable but national pride means the highest type of patriotism and it should overshadow everything else when Citizenship is considered . A Missouri farmer once tried to tell me that he was not interested in a larger navy because he felt that the insularity of Missouri was its protection and guarantee of safety and no matter what might happen to the coast cities by reason of a foreign invasion , the invader could never trouble the people along the Mississippi river . It seems incredible that any American could have such a shortsighted view of American Citizenship . Fortunately , this view is rapidl...
Arouse Men to the Thought of Devotion to the Public [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
Arouse Men to the Thought of Devotion to the Public WE have a remarkable confidence in mere appropriations ; we seem to have idea mat By Charles Nagel Former Secretary Department of Commerce and Labor tne results an u an appropriation nas Deen maae will follow . I am of the opinion that it is time for us to appreciate that we cannot buy happiness , because it mufet be deserved ; and that we cannot buy security , because that has to be earned . For illustration , I favor national defense ; but I trust that we may not indulge the impression that security and national defense can be had by the mere purchase of ships and guns and ammunition . What we heed is the conservation of men and women ; to awaken them to the thought of devotion to the public and to the government . I favor national defense , and have for many years . I believe in a navy , I believe in an army , I believe in organizing , I believe in a state of preparedness ; but I care more for the moral force of the man and woma...
Here ' s the Latest "Wisconsin Idea "—the Banker-Farmer Excursion [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
Here s the Latest Wisconsin Idea —the Banker-Farmer Excursion MOSINEE is a village in Wisconsin with a population of 600 . It is By Louis M . Tobin sionists piled off and started out . on foot . True they were picked up by the train 115 miles from the state college of agriculture at Madison , the objective point of the first banker-farmer excursion by the Wisconsin Bankers association . Although the excursion was a new phase of the bankerfarmer work of the Wisconsin bankers , all Badgerdom responded nobly to their call . Forty-one out of seventy counties were represented in the 458 excursionists who spent two days listening to the trained men of the college and watching demonstrations of approved methods of farming and stockraising . And little Mosinee with its population of 600 led all the rest . Sixty-five farmers , all paying their own expenses , boarded three sleeping cars and journeyed to Madison . There was a reason for the alacrity with which the farmers of Mosinee welcomed t...
Rural Credits and the Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
Rural Credits and the Banker MANY inquiries come to us with reference to the present rural credit bill now before Congress—the bill that appears to have the backing of the political powers that be . We are loath to express our minds on the subject , for , should we say one word in criticism , it could be said that we were moved by our banker s bias . And so we have said not one word—nor has the American Bankers association said one word in opposition , except to publish an editorial in the April Journal . The least we might say would be this : If the real desire is to secure prompt and widespread results for the farmers mortgage loans—and mortgage loans , not short time credit , is about all with which the bill seems to be concerned—why should it not provide that state banks that carry many farm mortgages , and national banks that are now empowered to carry some farm mortgages , may also send their farm mortgages up to the regional banks , as the new banks provided for may do ? If p...

CITIZENSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
CITIZENSHIP Oi &gt; all the- planks in the Banker-Farmer platform—the first , the greatest , the all-embracing one is Citizenship . Because this always was and always will be so ; because in these epochal days it is the biggest word before the nation , we devote our cover page to Citizenship , and some of the nation s greatest citizens have written for you their personal comments on this vital subject . We talk much of efficiency these days , but we seem not to appreciate that the two most helpful and hopeful and permanent , and therefore necessary elements in community and national efficiency are aggressive citizenship and the wholehearted cooperation it engenders . The citizenship that counts ; that serves and saves , is active and aggressive—positive , progressive , persistent and militant against all the powers that pervert . Today our boys and girls are learning or unlearning their ideas and ideals of citizenship from the apathy of the average citizen , or the affinity ...
