APRIL, 1956 Farmers Obtain $487 Million In Land Bank Loans In 1955 Farmers in 1955 obtained 61,000 farm mortgage loans for a total of 5487 million from the 12 Federal land banks through the 1,100 national farm loan associations in the Continental United States and Puerto Rico. This was an increase of 21 percent in number and 59 percent in amount of loans over the preceding year, and higher than any year except 1934, according to a statement made recently by Thomas A. Maxwell, Deputy Governor and T. irector of the Land Bank Servi e, Farm Credit Administration. Of the $487 million, $338 million was new money borrowed, an increase of 50 percent in the amount of new money compared with 1954. The remainder was balances on old loans farmers refinanced in their new loans. As in past years, farmers used the money they borrowed principally to refinance real estate mortgages. An important use was to refinance chattel mortgages. Other uses were for buying farm real estate, erecting and improv-...

MAY, 1955 NO. 56 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO growers in the Flue-cured region can blame insects for hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage each year — but the losses would be even greater if certain beneficial insects didn't help to combat those that do injury. If tobacco pests weren't preyed upon by natural enemies harmless to the crop, the situation would be extremely difficult to control. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations can give practical information on recognizing the insects that help rather than harm. Insects multiply so rapidly that farmers would soon be overwhelmed if nature didn't come to the rescue. In the case of tobacco, certain types of beneficial insects help to destroy the harmful types. Knowledge of the appearances and habits of the beneficial species will help the Flue-cured grower in carrying out an cflfcctive insecticide program.

Charges of short weighing and incorrect weighing were dismissed. Judge J. F. Lewis, of the Farmville Trial Justice Court, fined Ben L. Howell, of Stuarts Draft, manager of the Farmville Livestock Market, and George E. Jones, weighmaster, $20 each, for failing to use the official state weighing slips. R. A. Bridgewater, operator of the Southside Livestock Market, Inc., was found guilty on two similar counts and suffered the same fine. In the Howell-Jones short weighing charge, State Department of Agriculture officials, J. A. Rosen and J. A. Wilkerson, told the court they had reweighed 10 veal calves on April 16. Four of the calves had gained 10 pounds, four had gained five pounds each, one had lost five pounds, and one weighed the same, they stated....

MAY. 1956 AFBF Calls For U.S. Participation In Organization For Trade Cooperation The American Farm Bureau Federation today gave strong support to United States participation In the Organization for Trade Cooperation. In a statement prepared for presentation at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing, John C. Lynn, AFBF legislative director, said OTC, "if properly implemented, will be a real asset in the expansion of mutually advantageous trade. "It would help expedite the removal of restrictions and discriminations against exports of U.S. agricultural commodities," he declared. "There is no segment of our economy more dependent on export markets than agriculture," Lynn said. "The American farmer requires export markets of at least $4 billion per year at present prices, if we are to have an economically sound agriculture." He said agriculture can supply en even larger foreign demand. "Our cotton, wheat, tobacco, soybeans, rice, fruits, meat products and many others are among the mo...

6 IJour State Chairman Saijs , . By Mrs. Harry D. Hevener The Manifestation Of God Yesterday I saw a rainbow, a fair and lovely thing; its colors were transfused mislily above w»e. Suddenly I was aware of Ihe goodness and generosity of God and at Ihe same time the ingratitude of man loomed great before me. As I looked, I wondered at the choice God had made of colors in the bow above. Aware of Ihe significance of the bow itself, the meaning of the colors aroused my curosity. First came Red, symbolizing pure love, and the Love of God for his children immediately came to mind. Who, but a God of Love, could have given us so much, giving his own son that we might be brought back to him. lie established the family as the center of the working unit in caring for his creation. The relationship between husband and wife, parent and child perpetuating the idea of this love. Next came the Yellow with the symbolism of intellect.

MAY, 1956 American Farm Bureau Recommends 3-Way Program For Mutual Security Aid The American Farm Bureau Federation recently recommended that U. S. aid for mutual security be divided into three separate and distinct programs: Military aid, economic aid, and technical assistance. Each of the categories would have its own appropriation and such a division would "make it possible to expand or diminish any one of these programs without disrupting the others," Farm Bureau said. The proposal was made in the course of a hearing before the House Foreign Affairs committee jn which the AFBF testified on the Mutual Security Program. John C. Lynn, legislative director of the nation's largest farm organization, explained: ". . . It has been especially difficult for us to distinguish between economic aid and technical assistance. We believe that these programs should be specifically separated out as far as the budget is concerned so that each program could be analyzed from a budgetary point of vi...

JUNE. 1956 NO. 57 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference ' y ust PfOtCCtS Flue-Gured Tobacco Modern insecticides are most successful when applied in the correct amounts — enough to do the job but no more. Application of excessive amounts means waste of chemicals, objectionable accumulations on the leaf, unnecessary expense, and possible injury to the growing plants and to beneficial insects. If the Fluecured grower makes it his goal to use the minimum dosage for adequate control of pests, the unwanted effects of insecticidal residues are greatly reduced. Exactness is important, especially since the range of available insecticides is now wider, and the different chemicals are designed for individual handling. Some of the new pesticides are capable of controlling several types of insects, but the best control comes from using a specific pesticide for a specific pest. Recommendations for amounts to be used should be obtained from your County Agent or othe...

TTTNE, 1956 l et Private Enterprise Develop Atomic Power, Shuman Requests Expressing concern over the future development of atomic power, AFBF President Charles B. Shuman recently addressed a letter to Senator Clinton P. Anderson, chairman, and all members of the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy, asking the committee not to rush the federal government into the production of electric power from fissionable materials —at least until private enterprise has had time to demonstrate its capacity in this field, or until it has been conclusively demonstrated that private enterprise cannot and will not undertake the responsibility. "IT IS OUR BELIEF," wrote Mr. Shuman, "that the fullest and most economic commercial development of electric power from nuclear sources is best assured by leaving the primary responsibility for such development to private enterprise; and that the entry of the federal government into the nuclear power business, with its advantages of freedom from taxation and low o...

TTTNE, 1956 Lynn Terms USDA Soil Bank Price On Peanuts, Tobacco, 'Indefensible' The recent USDA order setting price supports at 37 percent of parity on tobacco and 20 percent on peanuts for participation in the acreage reserve section of the new soil bank plan, was termed discrimination and indefensible by the American Farm Bureau Federation. John C. Lynn, legislative director of the AFBF, told over 100 Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. agents and their wives at a sales meeting in Old Point Comfort, not to try to defend the USDA action. "It is an indefensible move which discriminates against the tobacco and peanut farmer," he said. Price supports for the other four basic commodities, when participating in the acreage reserve portion of the soil bank, were set at either 50 or 60 percent of parity, Lynn said. The AFBF had recommended that supports for peanuts and tobacco be set at 50 percent. Lynn told the banquet gathering that farmers have just watched months of wrangling ov...

Vol. 17, No. 7 VFBF Labels Education Bills 'Dangerous' To States Rights The Virginia Farm Bureau has labeled the two bills now pending before Congress dealing with education as "dangerous to states rights." In a letter to county Farm Bureau leaders throughout (lie state, M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the VFBF, has said that the Federal Aid to Education bill (H.R. 7535) is likely to come before the House for debate and action at any time. "A similar bill, S. 2950, now before a Senate Committee, is on the President's 'must' list," he continued. "We can think of no one single thing that could more effectively undermine the foundations of democracy than centralized control of education. Both of these bills," he stated, "would expand the Federal government's powers over the states. We already have more federal government on order than we can pay for."
