:n c u F E D E R A L Vol. 7, No. 11 I f-w w * / NEWS LETTER R E S E_R _V E B A N K D ALLAS, T E X A S OF D A L L A S November 15, 1952 Second Annual Farm and Ranch Credit School Announced by Texas A. & M. College December 7th to 10th are the dates set for the Second Annual Texas Farm and Ranch Credit School for Commercial Bankers. Dean Chas. N. Shepardson of Texas A. & M. Col lege states that the school will follow the same general plans as the sessions last year. Ample time will be allowed for discussion, and emphasis will be on the practical aspects of farm and ranch credit. “Classes” will be held in the modernistic Memorial Student Center on the campus of Texas A. 8b M. College at College Station, Texas. Most of the “students” will have rooms there, although some will be housed in near by motels, tourist courts, and hotels. Meals are available in the Student Center’s snack bar and coffee shop. The purpose of the school, according to Dean Shepardson, is to bring to the bankers of the State a better understanding of the requirements for the successful operation of modern farm enterprises and an appreciation of their credit requirements, together with suggestions for sound loan procedures in meeting these needs. Bankers attending last year’s school were enthusiastic about the program and expressed a keen interest in having it as an annual event. The down-to-earth discussions of prac tical credit problems were particularly valu able. In addition, the new ideas presented by members of the staff of Texas A. 8b M. on the technical phases of agriculture were helpful in bringing the “students” up-to-date on new developments in crop and livestock produc tion. In an effort to keep the courses in line with bankers’ interests, Dean Shepardson asked some of last year’s students to send in ques tions they would like to have covered. These questions were turned over to staff members at Texas A. 8b M. and will be the basis of their talks to the bankers. A special feature of this year’s school will be two “agricultural quizzes,” which will test the students’ knowledge of agriculture and add interest to the program. Also, time has been set aside for a tour of the college, so that everyone will have an opportunity to see the work being done at this outstanding institution of research and education. Bankers again will play a leading role in the program of the school, discussing such topics as “Financing the Young Farmer,” “How Our Bank Evaluates Farm and Ranch Management,” and “Correspondent Banking in Regard to Farm and Ranch Loans.” All topics on the two and one-half day schedule will be pointed to the banker’s interest in an effort to provide information that will enable him to meet the problems of his bank more effectively. A list of those who had registered prior to November 6 is shown on page 4 of this pub lication. Bankers who intend to register are urged to send in their reservations imme diately. The enclosed registration form may be used. 2 A G R IC U L T U R A L N E W S L E T T E R PROGRAM Monday Afternoon, December 8 Sunday Evening, December 7 Chairman— W . A.
