'THE RURAL PRESS
The Local Paper a Most Useful
Agency on the Farm-The Press,
Pulpit and School a Trinity of
influence That Must Be
Utilized in Building
By Peter Radford
Lecturer National Farmers' Union
A broad campaign of publicity on
the subject of rural life is needed in
this state today to bring the problems
of the farmers to the forefront. 'the
Mty problems are blazoned upon the
front pages of the metropolitan dail.
les and echoed in the country press,
but the troubles of the farmers are
seldom told, except by those who
seek to profit by the story, and the
glitter of the package ofttimqs ob
scurb the substance. A searching in
Vestigation into the needs of the
farmers will reveal many inherent de
fects in our economic system that cail
be easily remedied when properly un
derstood and illuminated by the pow
er of the press.
The rural press, the pulpit and the
school are a trinity of powerful in
fluences that the farmer must utilize
to their fullest capacity before he can
occupy a commanding position in pub
lie affairs. These gigantic agencies are
organized in every rural community
and only await the patronage and co
operation of the farmers to fully de
velop their. energy and usefulness.
They are local forces working for
the best interests of their respective
communities. Their work is to build
and their object is to serve. They
prosper only through the development
and prosperity of the community.
Every farmer in this state should
subscribe for the local paper, as well
as farm periodicals and such other
publications as he may find profitable,
but he should by 'all means subscribe
for his local paper, and no home
should be without it. The local paper
Is part of the community life and the
editor understands the farmer's prob
lems. It is the local press that will
study the local problems and through
its columns deal with subjects of most
vital importance to local life -of the
A Noble Task.
In too many instances the country
papers mimic the city press by giv
ing prominence to scandals, accidents
and political agitation.' The new
rural civilization has placed upon the
rural prers renewed responsibilities,
and enlarged possibilities for useful
ness. It cannot ierform its mission
to agriculture by recording the frail
ties, the mishaps and inordinate am
bitions of humanity, or by filling its
columns with the echoes of the strug
gles of busy streets, or by enchanting
stories of city life which lure our
children froin the farm.
It has a higher and nobler task.
Too often the pages of the city dailies
bristle with the struggle of ambitious
men in their wild lust for power, and
nany tins the flames of personal
conflict sear the tender buds of new
civilization and illuminate the ath
way to destruction. The rural jpress
is the governing poweor of public senti
ment and must hcld steadfast to
princile and keep) the ship of -state
in the roadsteadl of progress. The
rural press can best serve the inte
ests of the far-mers by applying its
energies to the solution of pro-blems1
affecting the local community. It
must stemn the mighty life current
that is moving from the farm to the
cities, sweeping before it a thousand
boys and girls per day. It has to dleal
with the fundamental problems of
civilization at their fountain head. Its
mission is to direct growvth, teach ef
ficiency and mold the intellectual life
of the country, placing before the pub
lie the daily problems of the farmers
and giving first attention to the leg
islative. co-operative, educational and
social needs of the agricultural classes
within its respective community.
The Power of Adver-tising.
The influence of advertising is clear
ly visible iAi the homes and habits of
the farmers, and the advertising col
umns of the press are making their
Imprint upon the lives of our' people.
The farmer possesses the tihings that
are best advertised.
The farmer is entitled to all the
advantages and deserves all the lux
uries of life. We need more art, eel
once and useful facilities on the
farms, and many homes and farms
are well balanced in this respect, but
the advertiser can render a service
by teaching the advantages of modern
equipment throughout the columns of
the rural press.
The farmers are in need of personal
leadership. They have political lead
ers, but they need 'local industrial
commurrity and educational' leaders.
