IJSDA Predicts Increase In '57 Farm Income Farm operators' realized net income this year is likely to show some further improvement, USDA reported last week. Realized net income in 1956 was 11.8 billion dollars, up four percent from 1955. The increase this year may come fairly close to that of last year, the Department said. Total cash receipts from farm marketings are not likely to equal those of 1956, but increased government payments to farmers from the soil bank program will likely more than offset any reduction in marketing receipts. While prices received by farmers are expected to remain fairly stable, averaging slightly better than a year ago, the volume of farm marketings may be smaller, reflecting acreaage cutbacks under the soil bank. CASH RECEIPTS from livestock and livestock products are expected to show some improvement—especially for hogs, but also for daily products and beef cattle. Cash receipts from crops, however, may be down substantially this year, USDA reported....

Virginia Vol. 18, No. 6 Fairfax Setting National Precident In Extensive Use of County Soil Survey Every county in Virginia has at one time or another probably had a soil survey made—and failed to use it! Until 1955, Fairfax county was in the same boat, but changing conditions brought about critical problems in the county and forced local citizens to find new methods of solving them. Now, Fairfax is using the soil survey for everything from determining land tax assessment values to the location of graveyards. Local citizens say it works. Verlin Smith, a local leader in Fairfax, said the survey came about as the result of the tremendous changes in the county due to population increases. The population grew from 40,000 in 1940, to 140,000 in 1953, and the projected 1980 population is 380,000. (Faii> fax county adjoins the District of Columbia.) Although about one-fourth of the county has become urbanized, agriculture is still the principal industry. County Agent Joe Beard sa...

2_ The Three "Ors" In Ike's Message President Eisenhower's "appeal to the people" for support of his $71.8 billion budget was disappointing to the economyminded. The message gave evidences that the President has been duped by the old familiar ghosts that haunt most men who frequent the Congress and the White House. These partisan old ghosts are of course unreal, but sooner or later it seems, those in public life succumb to their influence. This greatly clouds their perception and renders them ineffective in coping with realistic economic problems. Mr. Eisenhower by virtue of his speech acknowledges that he can still hear the voice of the people. But, he is blindly trying to change or subdue it. Only once in his message did he touch on the solution to the problem of big government. He said, "No great reductions in it (the budget) are possible unless Congress eliminates or curtails existing federal programs, or all of us demand less service from the government, or unless we are willin...

JUNE, 1&87 Too Soon To Judge Soil Bank (Continued from Page 1) In the acreage reserve; 12.7 per cent of the corn allotment; 19.9 per cent of the cotton allotment; 5.6 per cent of the flue-cured tobacco allotment, 15.5 per cent of the fire cured allotment, 41.7 per cent of the sun-cured allotment, 2.2 per cent of Burley, and 63.1 per cent of Maryland. All of the basic commodities in Virginia and nationally reached the goals established for participation in the acreage reserve except tobacco. President of the VFBF Roy B. Davis, Jr., said in the statement, "The soil bank was designed as a surplus reduction and soil conservation program. While the Farm Bureau has never considered it as a permanent phase of the agricultural program, its effect is difficult to measure in a few months. "The soil bank program was put into effect too late in 1956 to have any measurable effect. The value of the program will be determined over a longer period than is now available. "The 1957 progra...

2 Another Grassroots Survey Coming Up Sen. Allen J. Ellender, Louisiana, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, announced recently that he's planning another survey tour of the "grass roots" to obtain information for new farm legislation. Is this trip really necessary? What's the angle this time? Does the Senator have new farm legislation ideas for which he wishes to gain support, or is it a political party or candidate he has in mind? The several "grassroots surveys" that have been conducted in the past have served no good end. They have merely provided our elected an opportunity to propagandize farmers all over the country with such proposals as the Brannan Plan, a three price plan for wheat, the food stamp plan, mandatory price supports at 90 per cent of parity regardless of the supply situation, and other such propositions of this caliber. It's not sound economics for taxpayers to pay for the politicians' fence-mending. Assuming there is a legitimate premise upon which th...
