IrEBRUARY, 1957 Questions Farmers Ask (Editor's note: Here are the questions asked most frequently by Virginia farmers during the past week, as reported by county agricultural agents. Answers are supplied by the VPI Agricultural Extension Service and/or Experiment Station.) * * * Q—How can I keep my farm income up in view of the cuts in dark-fired andj flue-cured tobacco acreage? A—That's a foremost question in farm circles these days—and there's no ready answer. Off-farm employment may be the solution, particularly where the acreage involved isn't large enough for alternate farm production. In limited areas of Virginia, farmers are turning to production of aromatic tobacco, on which there are no controls. I TOUR I RAILROAD TICKCT *** .

0 AFBF Testifies Before House Ag. Committee On Soil Bank Issue: Asks Several Changes Following is a portion of the testimony presented by the American Farm Bureau Federation before the House Agriculture Committee in Washington. Legislative Director John C. (Jack) Lynn, presented the testimony. It was the first appearance of the AFBF before the new Congress. We emphasized that "the present policy of piling up surpluses must be reversed and existing surpluses must be reduced if we are ' to improve the farm income situation on anything more than a temporary basis. We must dispose of the present price-destroy-ing surpluses; also we must adopt governmental policies designed to prevent an immediate rebuilding of such surplus stockpiles." We pointed out that the Farm Bureau proposal for a surplus reduction and soil bank plan has four major aspects; namely: (1) That producers, in order to qualify for price supports, he required to put an acreage of soildepleting cropland—the amount to be de...

I do not be* lieve there is a rural community in the South which has not benefited because of Farm Bureau. Sen. James Eastland, Miss. Vol. 18, No. 3 Gallery Jammed For Milk Commission Hearing VFB Supports AFBF On Bailer Twine Limitations The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) has supported the AFBF in opposition to restricting imports on bailer and binder twines. The Cordage Institute has petitioned the Office of Defense Mobilization for relief from imports of bailer and binder twine on grounds of alleged impairment of national security. In a letter to the office of Defense Mobilization, the VFBF stated, "The present economic situation of our farm people is not an enviable one. Our difficulties stem primarily from the fact that the cost of most of our farm production supplies have continued upward at a steady pace, while the prices of the things that we have to sell have either remained static or tended downward. "Our farmers will naturally suspect that the real purpose of the s...

2 Set An Example, Mr. President Very properly, the President has made a plea to labor, business and industrial leaders to hold wages and prices in line in an effort to halt creeping inflation. We would say that if they are smart, they will heed his advice. Aside from all out atomic warfare, this is possibly our greatest danger. The constant erosion in the value of money can, in the end, if it goes far enough, be like setting fire to the storehouse, — with the security which people have tied up in life insurance, savings bonds, bank accounts, social security programs, pensions, etc., all going up in smoke. The result, of course, would be political and economic chaos. There is no surer way to wreck the nation. The Russians know this, if we don't. However, the President should be willing to follow his own advice. In recommending to the Congress, the largest budget in peacetime history, he is hardly doing that. Yet government spending is one of the major inflationary factors with which ...

The primary roads link towns and cities and are the heavily travelled roads. The secondary roads are often defined as farm-to-market roads, connecting the rural areas with the primary roads. The urban roads are those within cities and towns that lead to the primary systems, and the interstate system usually run across and through the state to the borders of the next state, linking states together. The New York engineers estimate the construction and nonconstruction needs of all four of these systems in the next 13 years to be slightly over three billion dollars. This includes about a half-billion dollars in backlog, or needs that exist now which cannot be met because of insufficient monies. The firm estimates all revenue during the next 13 years will be slightly over two and a half billion dollars, leaving a deficit of about one-half billion dollars. This ...

MARCH, 1957 Butler Writes 'Fats In Fire' (Continued from Page 2) ber that in the case of Railway Employees Department vs. Hanson, the Supreme Court handed down an opinion that a worker may be compelled, under an agreement authorized by federal statute, to be a member of a union as a condition of employment. In so doing, the court ruled that any state law or state constitutional provision to the contrary was null and void. The Court also brushed aside any contention that compulsory unionIsm constituted any violation of personal freedom despite amendment one and five to the U. S. Constitution. These are just a few of the recent events. There are others in the past four years which the AFBF has pointed out. We will send you additional information if you would like to use it to stir your neighbors. At any rate, the states rights issue, big government, or whatever you want to call it, is much greater than the segregation problem. The fat is in the fire. We must fan away the smoke and get...

Education is a weapon whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and who is struck with it. 11. G. Wells Vol. 18, No. 4 $ 1 Billion Gets You $ 19 Suggestions for trimming the budget and cutting back on spending plans proposed for fiscal 1958 have come from Congressional leaders, from leaders of the nation's industries, from the man in the street. All are unanimous in saying: "It's too high. Cut it." The proposed cuts suggest prunings of as much as $2 billion, $3 billion, $5 billion, and even $8 billion. But what does a cut of $2 billion (or $8 billion) mean to the average American? He can subtract any one of these amounts and come up with a smaller figure than $71.8. But where does that leave him? Well, here's one way of figuring it. It is estimated by the Tax Foundation that each billion dollars cut from the Federal budget means, on the average, $19 which an average American family of four can keep for its own purposes. For example, the $19 multiplied by a $2 billion slash c...

APRIL, 1957 FB Cites Reasons For Opposing Potato Grade Labeling Act In Congress The American Farm Bureau Federation has told Congress that it does not favor the passage of the proposed national potato grade labeling act. Farm Bureau told a House Agriculture Subcommittee hearing that the AFBF Board of Directors oposed the legislation on the Riverbank Erosion areas as one foot per year, to as high as 20 feet per year in ex posed areas. The erosion is pictured on the Rappahannock in the left photo and on the Potomac in Northumberland county in the right picture. Conservation experts say the erosion is caused by wind, weather and tidal waters. As a corrective measure landowners are being advised to grade down their banks and sew tough native grasses. Most of those on the tour, unfamiliar with the problem, found it difficult to believe that a peaceful, lazy appearing river in a lagoon as in the left photo could do such damage—but the evidence is there. ■ <: i% ». > ...

6 Butler on "Shrinking" (Continued from Page 2) trial sites bringing on new housing developments, more roads, and airports. Some point to the inconsistency of spending large sums of money on research in marketing, improved cultural practices which net greater production and development of more saleable varieties of our agricultural products. There's no denying that at Ihe moment it is inconsistent, we are trying to curtail production on the one hand and we are spending large sums to increase it on the other. But this is a temporary condition that causes us mental anguish and a frustrated pocketbook. The thing to worry about is a shrink through roads, industrial development, erosion, and government buying of land, from which there is little hope of a return to productivity. The problem of too much is a blessing in disguise. The fact that we allowed ourselves to get where we are is an indictment on us as citizens and on the politicians who would not do what was obviously right several...
