Make Plans for 1917 [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
Make Plans for 1917 EVERY bankers state association should make definite plans for its agricultural work this year . A majority of tbe state associations have committees on agriculture . Many of mem are doing valuable work . Others need a stimulus . And there are state associations which should create committees on agriculture and start to work . No matter what dazzling totals are carried in the crop reports , the fact remains that our production per acre is still far too low . George E . Roberts well said that to condemn the farmer did not do any good ; he must be shown . The bankers must cooperate with other agencies to do this . The only way anything is accomplished is by pounding away Probably there are bankers who are weary of hearing about agriculture . Probably there are bankers who do not see why the banker should be concerned about agriculture . Pound away until they realize that the United States cannot be a permanently prosperous and contented Nation until agriculture and...

What Does the Farmer Earn ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
What Does the Farmer Earn ? IS farming all right ? Should a let well enough alone policy prevail ? - Should the banker and every other citizen go about . bis business ? Dr . George E . Vincent is president of the University of Minnesota . He has a keen understanding of agricul-, tare and country , life . He is the farthest removed from a sensationalist and an alarmist—his training has taught him conservatism of the greatest degree . Addressing a national meeting of economists and sociologists just the other day , Dr . Vincent made some flat-footed statements . If they arc true , they should 4 tir every banker in the United States into activity . The statements were : ( That as an industry farming pays the average farmer less man day wages . That only increase in land values gives him a delusive sense of prospering from agriculture . That tenancy is increasing disconcertingly even in the best farming regions , such as Iowa and Illinois . That the rural population is increasingly foot...

The Agricultural Credit Rate Sheet [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
The Agricultural Credit Rate Sheet THE-campaign of the Agricultural Commission to introduce the agricultural credit rate sheet has started well . From every part of the country requests for copies of the sheet have come to this office . This response demonstrates that the men of the country banks are anxious to put farm credit on a safe basis for farmer and banker alike . The inventory feature of the credit rate sheet is of especial value at this time . Many farmers will set down for the first tune their assets and liabilities and that in itself is a big step toward bringing business principles to the farm . The value of the closer relationship between the farmer and the banker certain to be brought about by their discussion of the credit sheet cannot be estimated . The farmer will leave the bank with a new idea of what credit means and with a hew idea of the banker . Even today the tradition too strongly prevails among some farmers that the banker is an . ogre , fattening on advers...
How the Bank Took the Farmers to College—Other Banker-Farmer Stories [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
How the Bank Took the Farmers to College—Other Banker-Farmer Stories THE First State bank of Columbus , Miss ., advertised an agricultural observation special train to be run to the Mississippi A . and M . college at Starkville on Dec . 14 . Although rain , sleet and snow fell more than 239 persons boarded the train and spent the day at the college . The party included thirty-three boys , members of the pig club organized by the bank last year , who were guests of the institution , the other excursionists gladly paying their own fares . At the college the farmers heard advice on how the agricultural resources of their country could best be utilized . How to farm under boll weevil conditions ; cash crops as substitutes for cotton , such as lespedeza ; how to combat hog cholera ; the value of good cows , breeding and care ; how small farmers , each with a few head of stock , can cooperate profitably—these were some of the subjects . The visit to the college gave an impetus to a moveme...
How Little Denmark Became the Model Agricultural Nation of the World [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
How Little Denmark Became the Model Agricultural Nation of the World DENMARK offers a magnificent example to the world of efficiency in agriculture . The nation was poor . It had been stricken by war . Its natural resources were few . Its only j , ope of prosperity , progress was in the products of the soil The • oil was none too rich . The farm stock was none too good . Patiently and conscientiously the people worked to improve the —ad , enriching it with the elements it needed to make it fruitful . Patiently and conscientiously they worked to raise the grade of all farm animals , to have better bulls and better cows , tetter chickens and better bogs , better horses and better sheep . To wipe out the wastes that attended efforts of disorganized bodies they formed themselves into cooperative societies to buy collectively , to transport their products cooperatively , and to sell to the best advantage cooperatively . Out of this plan has grown the wonderful system that has made Denmar...
Uncle Sam Furnished the Creamery—but a Banker Produced the Cows [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
Uncle Sam Furnished the Creamery—but a Banker Produced the Cows YES , the Government creamery is the greatest thing that ever struck this community , but , I tell you if we only had the cows Well , why don t you farmers get them ? Why not ? These Government experts at the creamery tell us not to get anything except high or pure-bred dairy stock—they ve convinced us that other kinds don t pay . But it costs four times as much to get a pure-bred cow—and most of us can t afford it—just yet . The speakers were a farmer of Mercer county , Pa ., and E . B . Harsbaw , cashier of the Grove City National bank . The banker had asked the farmer what they thought of the creamery which the Dairy Division of the Bureau of Animal Industry had established in Grove City about a year and a half ago . We farmers realize that the creamery is paying a high and sure profit into our pockets every month , the farmer went on . Those government sharps have also got us all worked up about improving our herds ...
Why Not Start a Calf Club for Boys and Girls ? This Will Help You [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
Why Not Start a Calf Club for Boys and Girls ? This Will Help You HAVE you a little calf club in your bank ? If you haven t , it is a good idea to consider starting a club . Judging from the interest shown in the article in the December BANKERF ARMER on the experience of eight Illinois banks which have enrolled 500 boys and girls in calf clubs ,, all that is preventing numerous bankers from forming clubs is knowing just how to start . Many banks have asked for copies of the notes signed by the boys and girls arid for other information . More than likely there are few regions where an incentive to dairying is not needed and will not prove valuable to the farming of the community . The banker should advise regarding these conditions with recognized authorities , preferably the county agent , if the community enjoys the advantages of the county agent system . If not the state college of agriculture will undoubtedly be glad to cooperate and furnish advice on the breed to be favored and ...
Mote Sheep , More Wool , More Meat [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917
Mote Sheep , More Wool , More Meat By Clarence Bear * Kates Mr . Kates was secretary of the recent conference in Philadelphia to promote the More Sheep and More Woof movement , which was participated in by a number of bankers . The Pennsylvania Bankers association is especially interested in this movement . IT is up to the woolen mill men and the clothing manufacturers to increase sheep flocks on farm or range . A particular feature to be home in mind concerning the call to arrest further diminution of the number of sheep ( not only in the United States , but throughout tbe world ) is the origin of the call to attention . The condition of this agricultural industry is not to-day causing the farmer any alarm—it is the woolen manufacturer and wholesale clothing manufacturer who are disturbed : The owners of flocks have been quietly and naturally withdrawing from the business of sheep-raising . Why ? Because it didnt pay . Again—why ? This is what the conference held in Philadelphia se...
