But they form a large percentage of diet Then there has been an increased acreage put under cultivation . As B . F . Harris points out elsewhere in this number , this increased acreage and the use of machinery has enabled production barely to keep pace with population .

What is to be the Future of the American Counhyside ? Read this Carefully By George E . Vincent President University of Minnesota Bankers—farmers — everybody—read this , every line —think about h . If a written from the national standpoint — something we all must get these days . What Dr . Vincent says should make us alt think and think hard . These words are taken from his address to the American Sociological Society . NO one would question the assertion that the farm and village life of the United States presents a nation ! problem . Yet it is doubtful whether many Americans realize the immense gravity of the question as to how fifty millions are now living in the rural regions , and as to the kind of life which still more millions will live in the future . Unconsciously the emphasis has been upon the . needs of lhat , by reason of these conditions , education , social life , political responsibility moral standards , and religious sanctions are being alarmingly neglected or under...

Prizes were offered in fovjr classes : best ten ears , open to all exhibitors in the county ; best ten ears , open to those who had never won a premium at a show ; best single ear and junior corn growers exhibit . The exhibit attracted many persons to the bank . John Fields , editor of the Oklahoma Farmer went to Holdenville , Oklahoma , the other day to address a packed opera-house of farmers on livestock improvement . The First National bank of Holdenville was behind the meeting and created interest by giving away a Shorthorn bull calf , which is shown , with its new owner .

The Credit Rate Sheet Essential in Long Time and Short Time Farm Loans [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
The Credit Rate Sheet Essential in Long Time and Short Time Farm Loans By R . L . Bennett Paris , Texas THE Federal Reserve law provides for short time rural credit and the Federal Land Loan Act provides for long time -time land credit The first essential . of each of these two credits is the degree of certainty that payment will be made when the • debt is due , irrespective ofthe adequacy of the security protecting the loan . Rural security is not generally as quickly convertible as commercial assets , nor is it essential that it should lie , if proper provision is made in the loan for a safe system -of farming that will produce the funds to meet the payment And to this phase of rural credit , it may be said that financial inter--ests have not heretofore given sufficient study and consideration It has been generally asserted that the low rate of interest • certain European fanners pay for credit is the primary cause -of their prosperous farming . But a consideration of the working ...

TO AMERICAN BANKERS : [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
TO AMERICAN BANKERS : A FOOD CRISIS threatens the nation . Increased production of y food is a national , a world requirement . The American fanner is y f doubly fortunate in that he has at once a patriotic and profitable y j duty . That is to farm more efficiently , and to increase his production of * g food . It is within his power , by using improved methods , largely to in- y ¦ m crease his yield per acre . ¦* y The bankers of the United States must cooperate in every manner ff _ possible with the farmer . y _ Urging financial advantage to the fanner of an increased yield per I _ acre and the planting of all the additional acreage possible , bankers must I also halt any dangerous and uneconomic reversion to one-crop methods . V The bankers of the South , especially , should base their farm credits for the y year upon this sound requirement : sufficient acreage planted to food and y feed crops to insure the self support of the borrower . It should be assured y ? that every farmer...
Agricultural Preparedness is Necessary—Production is Patriotic and Profitable [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Agricultural Preparedness is Necessary—Production is Patriotic and Profitable AT the moment no other factor in the national situation is of greater importance than intelligent , precautionary preparations to secure the largest possible acreage of land under cultivation , and particularly in the food crops , during the coming season . Whether we are to have war or peace , the population must he fed , and if , unfortunately , weather conditions should be unfavorable , and the yield no better than last year s , the food situation next winter will be so much worse than it is now that we may well take alarm while there is yet time to provide against the possibility . The present crop year began with a large carry-over of all the grains , but it will end without reserves , and the whole world will be dependent upon the crops of 1917 . The beginning is not good . The Argentine wheat crop , now harvested , is so nearly a failure that there will be little for export , and the corn crop will ...
Stop Food Crop Wastes of Millions of Dollars by Using Improved Methods [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Stop Food Crop Wastes of Millions of Dollars by Using Improved Methods By D . F . Houston Secretary of Agriculture This statement was issued by Secretary Houston on March 27 . BOTH for economic and patriotic reasons the American farmer should strive this year for the highest standard of efficiency in the production and conservation of food . But production accomplished by wasteful methods does not make for efficiency , and care ful thought , therefore , should be given to the steps that need to be taken . At this , the approach of the growing season , it is pertinent to consider steps which should be taken during the starting or the growing of crops to prevent or eliminate wastes . In the case of the great staple cereals , which constitute a large proportion of our food supply , conspicuous production wastes result from failure to give proper attention to the selection and safeguarding of seed for planting , the preparation of the land , and the care of the crop . For instance , onl...

line is Bankers : Start Home Garden Work in Your City or Town at Once A SNAKY sqmrmZ \ ing upward upon what *• looks as if it might be a checkerboard—a diagram of little squares—always upward and upward . To millions of our people , laborers , farmers , professional , even * to those upon comfortable salaries , the persistent progress of this little line , invariably upward , is a fearful thing . Somehow , and soon , Uncle Sam must halt the upward movement of that line , for if it climbs much higher up on those little squares , it means hardships to a majority of his people , torture and even death to some . For the snaky little line is the Curve of the Cost of Living 1 Its progress is calculated upon a basis of the average wholesale price of twenty-five food commodities , selected and arranged to represent the food budget of an imaginary family . The little squares are indexed , from the bottom up—thermometer fashion —ioo to 250 . In July , 1915 , the Curve was midway between 140 a...
The Present Obligation and Golden Opportunity of the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
The Present Obligation and Golden Opportunity of the Farmer By Dean H . L . Russell Wisconsin Agricultural College ILL fares the land where the bread line forms because there are many hungry mouths crying for food . America has been approaching a crisis for years in this matter . Population has been growing apace and with it consumption has been increasing equally fast ; on the other hand production has not been maintained in equal ratio . What is going to happen when these two lines ( the lines of production and consumption ) cross each other ? Do you realize that in the last sixteen years the population of this country has increased thirty-three per cent , while the per capita production of practically three-fourths of our food materials shows a reduction in amount ? This simply spells that in time the line of consumption will cross the line of production unless a change occurs . James J . Hill was responsible for the statement that America in twenty years will go to bed hungry un...
The Strength of the Nation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
The Strength of the Nation THE man . who assumes to be the farmer s friend , or holds his interest dear ,. will constitute himself a missionary of the new dispensation . It is a contribution to the welfare of all humanity . It will strengthen the pillars of a government that must otherwise be endangered by some popular upheaval when the land can no longer sustain the population that its bosom bears . Here lies the true secret of our anxious interest in agricultural methods because , in the long run , they mean life or death to future millions who are no strangers or invaders , but our own children s children , and who will pass judgment upon ns according to what we have made of the world in which their lot is to be cast—James J . Hill .
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
IF only one grain of corn could be added to each ear grown in 1917 , it would mean six million bushels of corn for the United States . At 60 cents a bushel this would add $ 3 , 600 , 000 to the farmers * wealth . It would cost nothing except a trifle of effort to test seed , or cultivate a little more carefully , or watch the wastes more closely .

Let Us Act ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Let Us Act ! RAISE more food ! All over the nation , this slogan must be sounded . Whether the United States is at peace or war next fall , there must be a sufficient supply of food . The duty of the farmer is at once patriotic and profitable . The testimony of . the best authorities is that this is the year . of all years to grow the largest crops possible . The fanner who raises a crop above the average yield will be the one who will profit the most While striving to increase his yields in every manner possible , the farmer , of course , should plan his operations upon safe farming lines and to conserve soil fertility . With the expansion of production , there should be increased attention to livestock The cities and towns are awakening to their opportunity in home garden work . This is one of the shortest cuts to relief from the high cost of living . The bankers of the United States can render an important service in promoting this agricultural preparedness .
