A concentration of governmental power is what always precedes the death of human freedom. . . . Wilson. Vol. 36, No. 4 AFBF Seeks To Increase Pr Sales And Consumption In U. The American Farm Bureau Federation has called for the cooperation of the food industry, State Farm Bureaus, and the U. S. Department of Agriculture in na-tion-wide efforts to increase sales and consumption of pork. % The action was taken because of current large supplies and relatively low prices. In a telegram to key food industry leaders, AFBF President Charles B. Shuman asked for support in promoting sale of pork as a "good buy." "Hog marketings are running from 17 per cent to 25 per cent greater than comparable weeks a year ago," Mr. Shuman said in the wire. "Wholesale prices of most important cuts of pork are down 22 per cent to 42 per cent. Loins are down 22 per cent; Boston butts, 24 per cent; hams, 32 per cent; picnics, 27 per cent; and bacon 42 per cent. "Farm prices of hogs the week of February 15, 195...

K f dHL t J§| AfWj| Hkv Thh tobacco has been badly damaged by hornworms. These insects sometimes eat everything but the midrib. At no stage of its growth is tobacco immune from insect attack, and every grower has experienced at least one year when insects have literally eaten up his profit. Fortunately for growers, insecticides are available today which will prevent loss from insect damage if applied at the right time and in the proper manner. The story of insect control is one of progress, and the materials and methods of tomorrow may be as different from those of today as present practices are from those of yesterday. Many old-timers once fought insects with Horse-drawn spraying equipment is still used in many parts of the Flue-cured region, although more modern methods are gradually being adopted....

The ruined plants may look beyond recovery, but it's surprising what a sensible salvage program can do. There have been cases where tobacco that was waist-high when haildamaged yielded 60 to 70 per cent of a normal crop, even when all the stalks in the field were down, and after being declared a total loss.

MAY, 1955 Common Glory To Open Soon (Continued from Page i) to occur, but it is ridiculous to hear some of the jumbled and confused mess that is being parroted around now as democracy and the way to jobs, peace and democracy. The choice is no longer between liberty and death or freedom and subserviance. The question is merely, "Are you willing to take the next step?" There seems to be no clear choice between right and wrong, it is between the lesser or two evils. We'll never get a chance to choose between democracy, socialism or communism. Again, the choice seems to be for more or less ai}d we don't investigate how we'll get either. The big trouble today then is that there is very little black and white or right and wrong, but a large area of gray matter. Most of us are lost in the gray and don't know whether we're walking toward the black or the white. The real crucial issues we must decide have become so embroiled in politics that I seriously doubt that anyone could explain the ri...

A concentration of governmental power is what always precedes the death of human freedom. . . . Wilson. Vol. 16, No. 6 Senate Rejects Plan; Adopts Gore Proposal By a decisive vote of 60 to 31 the Senate last week rejected a proposal to substitute the Clay Committee highway recommendations for the bill (S. 1048) reported by the Senate Public Works Committee. The Senators then approved S. 1048, a measure introduced by Senator Albert Gore (D.) of Tennessee. The Gore bill provides for a five year highway construction program. In the past, highway legislation has always involved a two year period. The Clay Committee proposal would have provided for a ten year highway construction program, financed by bonds with a maximum maturity of 32 years. These bonds would not have been considered a part of the federal debt. THE («ORE BILL increases the federal authorization for primary, secondary and urban highways from $700 million a year, as presently provided, to $900 million a year. It retains t...
