THE FARMERS THE CUSTODIANS
OF THE NATION'S MORALITY.
Co-operation of Church, School and
Pre** Essential to Community
^ By Peter Radford
^ Lecturer National Farmers' Union.
The church, the press and the school
form a triple alliance of progress that
luides the destiny of every commun-
ity, state and nation. Without them
civilization would wither and die and
through them life may attain its great-
est blessing, power and knowledge.
The farmers of this nation are greatly
indebted to this social triumvirate for
their uplifting influence, and on behalf
of the American plowmen I want to
thank those engaged in these high
callings for their able and efficient
•ervtce, and I shall offer to the press
a Beries of articles on co-operation
between these important Influences
and the farmers in the hope of in-
creasing the efficiency of all by mu-
tual understanding and organized ef-
fort. We will take up, first, the rural
The Farmers Are Great Church Build-
The American farmer is the greatest
ehurch builder the world has ever
known He is the custodian of the
nation's morality; upon his shoulders
rests the "ark of the covenant" and
lip Is more responsive to religious in
fluences than any other class of cit-
The farmers of this nation have
built 120,000 churches at a cost of
$750,000,000, and the annual contribu-
tion of the nation toward all church
Institutions approximates $200,000,000
per annum The farmers of the Unl-
ted States build 22 churches per day
There are 20.000.000 rural church com-
municants oil the farm, and 54 per
cent of the total membership of all
churches reside in the country.
The farm is the power-house of all
progress and the birthplace of all that
is noble The Garden of Kden was

The Functions of a Rural Church.
If the rural churches today are go-
ing to render a service which this age
aemands. there must be co-operatioa
( between the religious, social and eco-
nomic life of the community.
The church to attain Its fullest meas-
„ Bre o' success must enrich the lives
®f the people in the community it
•ervrs; it must build character; devel-
ep thought and increase the efficiency
of human life. It must serve the so-
cial, business and intellectual, as well
as the spiritual and moral side of life.
If religion does not make a man more
capable, more useful and more Just,
what gfcod is it? We want a practical
rellgidn, one we can live by and farm
by, as well as die by.
Fewer and Better Churches.
Blessed 1s that rural community
which has but one place of worship.
While competition is the life of trade,
It is death to the rural church and
moral starvation to the community.
Petty sectarianism la a scourge that
flights the life,'tTn(| the church preju-
dice saps the vitality, of many com-
munities. An over-churched commun-
ity id a crime against religion, a seri-
ous handicap to society and a useless
tax upon agriculture.
While denominations are essential
and church pride commendable, tho
high teaching of universal Christianity
must prevail if the rural church is to
fulfill its mission to agriculture.
We frequently have three or four
churches in a community which is not
able to adequately support one Small
congregations attend services once a
month and all fail to perform the re-
ligious functions of the community.
The division of religious forces and
j the breaking into fragments of moral
; efforts is ofttimes little less than a
calamity and defeats the very purpose
j they seek to promote.
The evils of too many churches can
I be minimized by co-operation. The
social and economic life of a rural
j community are respective units and
cannot be successfully divided by de-
1 nominational lines, and the churches
can only occupy this important field
by co-operation and co-ordination.
The efficient country church will
definitely serve its community by lead-
; lng in all worthy efforts at community
, building. In uniting the people in all
| co-operative endeavors for the gen-
eral welfare of the community and in
arousing a real love for country life
and loyalty to the country home and
these results can only be successfully
accomplished by the united effort of
the press, the school, the church and
