THE NEW RURAL CIVILIZATION
By Petar Radford.
Lecturer National Farmer»' Union.
We are confronting a new rural
ctvtiiiaUon It la to radically differ
•nt from the life of the peat that It
may well be called new, not merely
because of Ite characteristics, but be
cause of its triumph in rural co-opera-
tton and leadership. The utilisation
of modern agencies, and the use of
farm machinery have greatly increas
ed the efficiency of the farmers,
broadened their vision and made life ^
The most serious enemies to coun
try life are Isolation and drudgery, and
perhaps the worse of the two is Iso
lation. It is the curse of the coun
try. The hunger of young people for
companionship has been disregarded
and in various ways the social in
stincts have had their revenge. The
fruits of modern tnvenUve skill and
enterprise have enriched country' life
and afforded the facilities of banish
ing forever the extreme ieolaUon
which used to vex the farm house
hold of the past. The telephone Is a
great' social asset In the rural home;
the rural free delivery brings the
world's dally message to the door; the
parcel post delivers ten million pack
ages per annum at a halt million
homes, and the automobile annihilates
distance, making Isolation a myth.
The building of public highways has
brought communities and farm homes
T h e S lav e of D rudgery.
It is a dramatic moment on the
farm when machinery emancipates
the slave of drudgery. The evolution
of farm machinery is a continued
atory of human ingenuity. One man
now, by the aid of modern mechanical
devices, can do as much as five or
ten men used to perform and the
work is less burdensome and more
fascinating. The miracle of conquest
will lift the curse of drudgery that
has crushed the courage out of farm
boys and caused them to retreat to the

educational problems that have en
gaged the attention of the boys, re
lieved the housewife and added new
economies and values to farming and

We need to take full advantage of
Co-operation the K ey-N ote.
One test of modern civilization is
the capacity for co-operation
selfish days of the independent farm
er are rapidly passing and we are be
ginning to catch the vision and share
the profits of organized efforts. There
are many farm machines adapted to
serving a community, but organiza
tlon of farmers is required to pur
chase and operate them on a co-oper
ative basis, and new laws are needed
to permit these transactions.
New Tasks for the Rural Church.
The rural church has been slow to
adjust itself to the new order of
things. The churches are discover
ing new opportunities for service,
broader community usefulness and a
greater social mission. The church
must gird itself for new tasks and
under a new virile type of leadership
undertake real community building
with the modern church as the center
of activity and source of Inspiration
and guidance. The triumph over lso-
latlon and the gradual emancipation
from drudgery, the development of
good roads, telephones, rural mall ser
vice and the wonderful evolution of
farm machinery make for religious
advancement. The increase In Intel
llgence, new social consciousness,
growing spirit of cooperation, added
efficiency of rural institutions, char-
acter, home building and better rural
morals afford opportunities for a com
munity-serving church to demonstrate
Its power. The rural church to ful
fill Its mission must swing around It
the Influences for progress.
Take good roads for your text and
go everywhere preaching the gospel
of better farm conditions.
The average bird Is the farmer's
best and truest friend—stand by your
friends—the feathered songsters.

The principal function performed by
government today is to collect taxes,
keep records and prevent and punish
crime; but that is not sufficient. Gov

as well as restrain greed. We have
been basing legislation upon the ex |

There has never been a war of such tremendous importance and magnitude as the pres-
ent conflict. People today are doing little else than talking war, thinking war and reading
