"But," the group continued, "since the individual must operate in a society, there should be a balance between the interest of American democracy and the interest of the individual." The conference stressed the need for schools to operate 12 months a year, and have an adequate number of relief teachers as a permanent part of the school staff. It also recommended that legislation be enacted to allow local referendums to determine the method by which School Board members should be selected. An adult education program should be considered in school building needs of the Commonwealth, the group said. They urged that future needs be .considered in school construction in view of the fact that 30,000 new pupils will be entering school every year for the next ten years.

We discussed the potential .power of our own Virginia women, which if activated can be vital to the growth and strength of our organization. At present much is at stake in the legislative field of our agricultural program on both tlje State and National level. Whether we women realize it or not, the legislation which is passed will affect our way oi life to a large degree. Therefore we need to become an ACTIVE FORCE rather than remaining a dormant power. How then can we bring into use this dormant power among Farm Bureau Women? The first step is to become informed on current issues and realize how they will effect us and our families.

qfipTEMBER, 1955 Legislative Director Urges Restraint In Federal Authority "It is the belief of the American Farm Bureau Federation that, as a result of a constantly broadened interpretation of the commerce and welfare clauses of the Constitution, the Constitutional structure envisaged by its authors is jeopardized," John C. Lynn, legislative director of AFBF told the Senate Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights during a recent hearing. In discussing the delegation of power between the National and state governments, Lynn said, "The scope of federal responsibility has been gradually but comprehensively broadened. No Congress ever adjourns without enacting legislation adding to, expanding, or rounding out federal authority. With each new power assumed by the federal government, the residue of state, local and individual authority is diminished. "If history tells us any lesson," Lynn continued, "it is that concentration of power in a central government is the road to subordination of ...

8 The Woman's Side (Continued from Page 6) tion—and in all things, extra convenience*." It seems, according to most recent reports and surveys, that the American food pattern is rapidly changing—we're eating better, not only in terms of nutrition, but also in terms of what was once referred to as "delicacies". Our parents and grandparents at e well, but they put the family down to huge portions of fried chicken, roast beef, mashed potatoes, and apple pie. Today we sit down to shrimp cocktails, broiled steaks, lobster Newburg, and fancy cakes and pies. And, most important, most of these items are ready to eat, when they are purchased, except for sticking them on the stove and heating them. Th e cake comes in a box—add a little water, place it in the stove and bake at 375 degrees. Therefore, it seems fairly clear, that even though the farmer isn't making any more money, and even though retail prices remain pretty high, the consumer is still getting her money's worth in food products. ...

A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation told a Trade Executives Association meeting at the John Marshall Hotel in Richmond this month. Since 1947, Hubbard said, farmers have experienced a 25 to 30 percent reduction in farm in- < ome.

Characteristic symptoms are puckering and a mottled, intermingled pattern of yellow-green and darkgreen on young leaves. Older leaves on infected plants sometimes develop large blisters, known as "Mosaic burn." When infection takes place early in the season, the damage is likely to be severe. The yield may be reduced 40 to 50% and quality impaired. However, if the disease strikes late in the season, the loss may be negligible. 11 The mottled pattern and puckered leaves seen here aie characteristic ol common Mosaic, a major tobacco disease in the Flue-cured are*.

OCTOBER, 1955 J,ess Government Interference Will Aid In Increasing Farmers' Net Income, AFBF President Declares CHICAGO, Illinois—The way to improve farm income is to reduce, not increase, government interference in the pricing and production of farm products. This is the opinion of Charles B. Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. He spoke to the agricultural breakfast session of the American Bankers Association in th e Conrad Hilton Hotel. "Political pricing" actions by Congress have been a large factor in the 24 per cent decline in farm prices which has taken place during the last five years, Mr" Shuman said. Rigid price supports at 90 per cent of parity were established during the war period to encourage increased production, "but Congress failed to let the flexible price support plan go into effect after wartime demands were reduced," he said. "This has been an important faclor in the accumulation of surplus farm products which now prevent farmers from sharin...
