NOVEMBER, 1956 81 Per Cent of Farm Income Drop Due To Production Costs-Shuman JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Increasing production costs are a greater problem to farmers than the decline ih gross income, Charles B. Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, said here recently in an address to a Missouii-Arkansas district convention of Kiwanis International. "Eighty-one per cent of the reduction in net farm income since 1947 has been due to increased costs—l 9 per cent to reduced returns," Shuman said. "Although farmers have been faced with a decline in unit prices for their products, the increased volume of marketings has tended to hold up gross income fairly well. "The rise in the price of steel, for example, is reflected in moderate to sharp increases in prices paid by farmers for most farm machinery items as reported in the USDA September 15 report. In mid-September, USDA reported 'prices of farm machinery averaged 5 per cent above a year ago and the highest on record.' "We...

nF.f EMBER. 1953 C I G ARETTES » mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmrnmmmmm • - - The Contents of these packages prove the value of Modern Scientific Research We arc bringing to a close, for the present at least, our program of informational advertisements addressed to the growers of Fluecured tobacco. It has been our aim in this five-year program to supplement the splendid services of federal and state workers in keeping growers advised of the latest information on tobacco production matters. It has been a stimulating experience for us, and we hope it has been beneficial to you. The question may be asked, "Why did we undertake this project?" Hanging in offices throughout our organization are brass plaques saying, "Quality of Product is Essential to Continuing Success". That goes for every product we manufacture, and necessarily for the tobaccos we purchase from the growers. Our insistence on quality is one reason why we undertook this program. In a larger sense, The American Tobacco Company holds to ...

Butler Discusses Widening Breach (Continued from Page 2) of an organization to fight the union political machine. He called attention to the newly organized British organization "The Citizens League for the Preservation of Freedom" which is designed to cope with labor in that country. Any of us that have our heads out of our shells are casting a jaundiced eye at the union movement, to say the least. For that reason, despite Brother Greathouse's appearance, his good oratory, and his soothing words, nobody believed him much. We listened as prejudiced judges, anxious to hear the other side, but already decided on the guilt of the accused. This is not good. Neither is it good that a certain amount of fear accompanies our other feelings about unions. Brother -Parker' used the phrase Timber Cruises Forest Management E. P.

I pfI€KMBER t 1956 37 State FBs gcore Gains During 1956 A five-year record in the number 0 f State Farm Bureaus showing gains in membership has been set during 1856. This is revealed in the final membership report for fiscal 1956 (the year ending November 30), as submitted by Roger Fleming, se cretary-treasurer of the American Farm Bureau Federation. THIRTY-SEVEN state FBs gained members this year. Eleven of these are in the Southern Region, ten in the Northeast, nine in the West, and six in the Midwest. TOTAL FARM BUREAU membershio for 1956 is 1,587,107—36,115 less than the 1955 figure of 1,623,222. Gains in 37 states were much larger than losses in ten other states and Puerto Rico. They helped to partially offset a decline caused by a reorganization adjustment in the New York Farm Bureau. In New York, Farm Bureau members formed new and independent county organizations throughout the state. The previous County FB organizations had officially sponsored the extension service. Dues ha...

6 Effect Of The Soil Bank On Field Crops In 1957 Discussed By VPI Economists What will be the effect of the soil bank program on total farm output? That's the big question for the next few years with respect to major field crops, say agricultural economists at VPI. They claim the year 1956 was no true test since the program started late, and turned out to be little more than a drouth-relief program. Whether enough land goes into the soil bank program to materially affect farm output depends primarily on the rate of payments and the loan rates on price-supported crops, the economists say. Meanwhile, total feed-grain production for the United States in 1956 appears to be about the same as in 1955. Production of-oats, barley, and sorghum grains is down nationally, but this reduction is offset by the second largest corn crop on record (3.4 billion bushels). Corn production in Virginia is up 16 percent from 1955 with a record yield per acre of about 48 bushels. Ample supplies of feed gra...

6 'Join and Support A National Farm Organization' — DeHart (The following statement was issued by P. H. DeHart, assistant director of extention in Virginia.) The production of agricultural commodities is a highly competitive business. As a farmer, you are not only competing with other farmers who produce the same commodities but also with farmers producing other commodities which may be substituted for those you are producing. For example, peanuts must compete in the market with not only other kinds of nuts but also with jellies and jams which the housewife may substitute for peanut butter. The housewife may buy pork today but next week when prices or quality changes, she may buy poultry, beef or lamb. Competition, if free, is healthy for the agricultural industry. Each individual farmer is on his own to meet this competition through increased efficiency of production through changes in operations within his own fence line. However, there are certain things a JHHBggpS | i : I I j Ps...

A flight * rom responsibility Is a fight from liberty. Vol. 18, No. 2 State Membership Totals Over 12,000 VFB For Removal Of Excise Tax On Transportation The Virginia and American Farm Bureaus have joined many other groups fighting to remove the Federal excise tax on transportation. Three excise taxes were envoked during the war years, the from which were used in the war effort. A four and one-half per cent tax on all pipeline a three per cent tax on all freight transportation, and a 10 per cent tax on all passenger transportation, netted the Federal government about $702 million in revenue in 1956. In a meeting of Virginia interests held in Richmond this month, organization representatives pointI ed out that the tax has outlived the ! purpose for which it was created by several years. Canada had such a tax which was repealed after the war, but "we have never been able to eliminate ours," a spokesman of Virginia Highway Users Assoc., said.
