July 15, 1942 House And Senate Disagree On Sale Of Corn And Wheat Below is an article written by a Washington member of the American Farm Bureau Federation's research staff on the disagreement between the House and Senate on the sale of wheat and corn. For several months Congress has been engaged in a battle royal over the establishment of a sales policy for the farm products which the Commodity Credit Corporation has acquired under its loan programs. The American Farm Bureau Federation has taken the position that it unfair for the Government to dump surplus farm products on the market for the purpose of depressing prices below parity. Last winter the Department of Agriculture announced a policy of dumping corn and wheat on the market for the express purpose of keeping feed prices low. At the request of the Farm Bureau, Senators Bankhead of Alabama, Gillette of lowa, Russell of Georgia and Thomas of Oklahoma introduced a bill S. 2255, to forbid the sale of Government-owned farm comm...

July 15, 1942 Southside Cream Cooperative Celebrates First Anniversary Below is an article written for the Virginia Farm Bureau News by Dr. Gordon H. Ward of Blacksburg, Extension Agricultural Economist, on the services rendered by the Southside Cream Cooperative, Inc., which recently celebrated its first anniversary. Dr. Gordon H. Ward, Extension Agricultural Economist When the Southside Cream Cooperative, Inc. closed its books at the end of the first fiscal year, the leaders were justified in feeling proud of the record they had made. Starting out to collect cream from the counties around Petersburg the middle of May, 1941, with fewer than 50 signed up members, the Co-op gathered in less than 400 pounds of butterfat the first week. By the middle of the summer the volume was up to 2,000 lbs. per week and during the fall the weekly poundage sometimes exceeded 3,000 lbs. The Chesapeake Creamery, to whom the co-op contracted to sell the cream of its members, praised the leadership of ...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled To Parity Vol. 11, No. 8 Virginia Delegates To Attend Training School Regular Field Report Given By Organization Director (Below is the monthly Field Report written for The Virginia Farm Bureau News by T. E. Starnes, Organization Director.) During the past month, farmers have been exceedingly busy putting up their hay and hauling in their small grain crops. It has been rather difficult to get farmers out to organization meetings, but in spite of this handicap and a labor shortage, I am able to report good progress in the three counties of Wythe, Grayson and Carroll. Wythe County—A membership campaign was opened in Wythe on July 6, and by July 18, about 35 members had been secured. The organization meeting was set for July 18, but on account of the busy season it was postponed until August 8, giving the farmers a chance to get their seasonal work done. This action was taken by suggestion of the interested farmers in the organization. A membership committ...

August 15, 1942 News of The Associated Women Educational Program Need Of Cooperatives In Virginia Below is an article entitled Are You Co-op Conscious?" written for the Virginia Farm Bureau News by Dr. Gordon H. Ward of Blacksburg, Extension Agricultural Economist. When the census takers interviewed farmers in the spring of 1940, they asked whether the farmer did business with a cooperative when he sold his products or bought his supplies. Of the 175,000 farmers in Virginia only 17%, or about 30,000, replied that they dealt with cooperatives. The 200 odd farmer Cooperatives in Virginia have about 60,000 different farmers on their membership rolls. But only about half of these farmers are reported by the census as being co-op patrons. Why is it that only about half of the co-op members in Virginia are conscious that they are members? There are probably a number of reasons for this situation. At the time of taking the 1940 census, the amendment to the Virginia Cooperative Law requirin...

Now he says they propose to lower wool values by repudiating government contracts that are now well along in the process of manufacture. Such utter disregard for the sanctity of government contracts as displayed by this official of the OPA is unthinkable and strongly tends to detroy confidence in all government obligations, including defense bonds. Our democratic form of government is based upon the confidence of its citizens. Let nothing be done to destroy it. Demoralizing Effect "This untenable situation has demoralized the whole wool and textile industries and as usual the wool market is absorbing the shock, and Mr. Bancroft has accomplished his avowed purpose. The Top Futures Market sagged from a high of about $1.37 to approximately $1.18 in a very short time. It is only fair to state, however, that upon June 3, 1942, Price Regulatio...

August 15, 1942- Letter (Continued from Page Five) pert government appraisers whose duty it would be to examine or appraise the wool and see to it that each grower gets ceiling prices to which he is entitled according to the OPA. "Growers are beginning to realize that their market is being denied them by allocation and curtailment orders issued by the Textile Division of the War Production Board whose personnel appear to be giving little or no considera-* tion to the growers' viewpoint. The case in point is illustrated by a letter received by us from a New Mexico grower dated July 1, from which I quote: " 'Due to information concerning the importation of South American wools, the outlook for immediate wool prices doesn't look good to me. Therefore, at your earliest opportunity, appreciate your selling our wool even though you have to make some sacrifice in price.' "This is typical of the attitude of a large percentage of growers. A stable or strong market is necessary to insure main...

In an annual report of the activities of the Farm Bureau given before the group in the newlyconstructed amphitheater on the Farm, Henry Grizzard declared that farmers were the only group in America that had produced to the full extent that the administration had asked, and he added that he challenged any other group in America to produce goods for the war in the quantities and at the costs that farmers had produced their products. "We farmers," he declared, "have never asked for anything but equity and justice. Up to now we have received neither. All we have asked for is parity. The avowed intention of Congress has been that we receive parity. The highest we yet have received is per cent of parity. Wages Are Hi...
