O'Neal of the American Farm Bureau Federation in a speech, February 22, at the 1941 National Farm Institute held at Des Moines, lowa.

VFBF Pledges To Maintain, Support Democracy Opportunity Is Pointed Out By Holsinger No greater opportunity for service to humanity was ever afforded to a group of people than the opportunity afforded to farmers now, President G. F. Holsinger of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation told delegates to the 1941 meeting of the VFBF in Richmond March 20.

With these unorganized groups, the farmer, a portion of labor, a portion of industry, rests the...
