KEITHLY, General Manager Churchville, Va. Lexington, Va. Richmond, Va. Harrisonburg, Va. C.J. 's Market Letter The attention of Summer Street and the wool textile industry at large have been focused on the awards for 74 million yards of material, 10 million blankets and 10 million pairs of socks. The contracts were let through negotiation and the price or successful bidders will not be published generally. We have information, however, that leads to the conclusion that awards are made on a basis that will permit payment of ceiling prices for domestic wool. It will be recalled that no bids were accepted on the basis of 100 per cent foreign wool; 50 per cent being the most foreign wool that could be used in any contract. A little less activity has prevailed on Summer Street due to mills being occupied in ascertaini...

6 Production, Use Of Potash Are Discussed In Article Without potash, there would be no plant and animal life, because potash is one of the essential plant foods. Whether you live on a farm or in a city apartment, your welfare depends upon an adequate supply of this mineral, not only because of the plant products which you consume and wear but for the animal products without which our modern civilization could not exist. It therefore has been deemed particularly fortunate that this continent is now independent of any foreign sources for its requirements of potash. Such was not the case during the first World War. prior to which almost all of this coun-' try's potash came from German mines. When the United States entered that war and these supplies were cut off, prices of potash rose from $35 per ton to $350 and in some cases $500 per ton and there was little to be had at any price. Growers became desperate in their efforts to get the material in order to meet the increasing demands f...

May 15, 1942 Financial Safety For Co-ops Discussed By Agriculturalist Principal Agricultural Economist, Farm Credit Administration. The financial structure of a co-op may be likened to the bone structure of the body. Without the bones, the muscles and flesh, and even the heart and nervous system, would be of little significance to us as human beings. Without a sound financial structure a cooperative association would be a flimsy thing. You would think that the importance of financial safety would be generally recognized by cooperators, but, unfortunately, this is not always the case. Cooperation is apt to attract idealists who are weak in practical commonsense business knowledge. These people with unimpeachable aspirations are inclined to look upon the problem of finance as of secondary importance. Such people are impatient of quick results and are oftentimes unwilling to go through the slow process which may be necessary to build a strong financial basis for an organization. Fortun...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled To Parity Vol. II No. 6 Careful Planning Urged By Dr. Hutcheson Starnes Aids County F.B. Campaigns T. E. Starnes of Pearisburg, Organization Director for the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, attended a number of meetings of county Farm Bureau directors last month and assisted in membership drives. He attended a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Montgomery Cooperative Farm Bureau and discussed with them the setting up, for immediate use, of an economic service. The Directors decided that it would be best to first strive for a larger membership. Six of the Directors agreed to spend a day soliciting members in their respective communities and Mr. Starnes worked with each of the farmers on the days assigned. Montgomery now has approximately 75 members signed up. Giles Meeting Mr. Starnes met with the Giles Directors on May 16. The Directors were accompanied by a number of neighbors who were interested in setting up a strong Farm Bureau unit in the co...

June 15, 1942 News of The Associated Women Mrs. E. W. Roller Is Winner In District H. D. Contest Below is the winning talk delivered by Mrs. E. W. Roller of Broadway before the recent District Home Demonstration meeting in Harrisonburg. Mrs. Roller's husband has been a member of the Farm Bureau for 14 years. THE HOMEMAKER LOOKING THREE WAYS By Mrs. E. W. Roller First, let us ''look in." As homemakers, there comes to each of us a challenge to look into our homes and see if we find one of the outstanding characteristics of home life that is so vital in times like these. I refer to a cheerful atmosphere. Such an atmosphere helps .greatly to relieve the strain under which many are working today. Someone has said: "When we are happy and cheery and bright, the world around us is sure to go right." Recreation in the home helps greatly in creating a cheerful atmosphere. As homemakers, we should help to plan definite types that may be enjoyed by our families in the home. We should also aid i...

C.J. 9 s Market Letter The situation in the wool market is much as it was at the time our last market letter was published. I spent several days recently in Washington reviewing the situation, and found that the WPB is still unwilling to have the Department of Agriculture take over the remaining portion of the 1942 domestic wool clip. The Department of Agriculture, which after all is the proper department to protect the interests of agriculture, is willing to take over the clip if by so doing a useful purpose may be served. A letter has been written by the Department to Donald Nelson expressing its willingness to cooperate. By May 27th, no formal answer had heen received by the Department, although verb...

June 15, 1942 O'Neal Cites Parity Stand President O'Neal of the A. F. B. F. was unable to attend a conference of farm leaders called by Senator Thomas on May 7 to consider President Roosevelt's suggestion that the price ceilings on farm commodities be fixed at 100 per cent of parity, but he sent a statement setting forth the following reasons why the Farm Bureau is forced to oppose the suggestion: 1. If ceilings are imposed at parity, prices could fluctuate between the loan level of 85 per cent of parity and the ceiling. This would average, for the entire marketing season, somewhere between these two levels and farmers could never reach full parity. 2. Even if full price parity were attained, income parity could not possibly be attained because of limited acreage allotments. Puzzling Situation 3. Consumer income is at an all-time high. Therefore there is no reason why consumers should not pay prices which will insure parity of both prices and income for the farmer. Official February...

6 Program To Prevent Inflation, Control Living Cost Outlined On April 27 the President announced his 7-point plan to prevent inflation, keep down the cost of living, and promote war effort. This program included the following points: (1) Tax heavily; (2) place price ceilings on goods and rent; (3) stabilize wages and salaries; (4) stabilize prices of farm products; (5) encourage increased purchase of War Bonds; (6) ration all essential commodities that are scarce; (7) discourage installment buying and encourage the paying off of obligations. The next day, April 28, Leon istrator, announced the new max price of most retail commodities at the highest price charged by each individual merchant for each commodity during the month of March, 1942. Mr. Henderson declared, "Prices have risen out of line with the best war effort." These price control measures go into effect throughout the nation on May 18. On April 28, Claude R. Wickard, Secretary of Agriculture, declared, "I am in full accor...

June 15, 1942 Meeting Held In Blacksburg A state-wide representation of farm and home leaders met in Blacksburg last month, at the invitation of Dr. John R. Hutcheson, director', Virginia Agricultural Extension Division, to consider problems in controlling the cost of living and promoting the war effort. . Virginia is one of the first states to follow out a request by Secretary of Agriculture Wickard that the Extension Service and other U. S. D. A. agencies, in cooperation with war-time agencies and farm leaders, develop plans for promoting an educational program among farm people to prevent runaway prices. Every state will develop and carry out similar activities. In outlining proposed stops, Director Hutcheson stressed the fact that any program to combat inflation will be the biggest and most important job ever undertaken by farm leaders. Every inflation is followed by deflation, he pointed out, and the hardest blows and tightest squeezes of deflation hit the farmer. The logical a...

The following pledge of service, adopted by the officials and Board of Directors of the Associated Women of the American Farm Bureau Federation, was forwarded last month to President Roosevelt: "The farm women of America have long been inarticulate. We have had our work to do. We have had our families to care for. But now all the things in which we believe are being threatened. The way of life that has sought to dignify womanhood is ruthlessly challenged by the totalitarian way of life that seeks to degrade womanhood. "Now, we believe, the time has come to speak. We want to give to you and to America our pledge of service and our declaration of purpose. "From our mothers and our mothers' mothers, who pioneered America, we have inherited a long tradition in the unalterable conviction that men have the right to be free.
