OCTOBER, 1957 AFBF Active In 100 Issues During Congress Ko major farm legislation was considered by the first session of the 85th Congress. While Congress met from Januai-y 3 through August 30—with the Senate working an aveage of 6H hours per day pnd the House about 4.2 hours per day—much time was devoted to debate on U. S. foreign policy, the mutual security program, and the many aspects of Ihe budget. In all, 14,013 bills were introduced during this first session. Farm Bureau has been active, either through legislative or administrative action, on approximately 100 major issues in 1957. Many of Farm Bureau's policies were enacted into law during this session of Congress. The following summary reviews legislative activity on some of the important ones. In most cases the policy adopted of the official voting delegates by the member State Farm Bureaus is quoted briefly to indicate why Farm Bureau supported or opposed specific bills. THIS REPORT covers only the major legislative activ...

4 Phone Rate Increase • (Continued from Page 1) the State Corporation Commission, will amount to about two cents per day per C&P subscriber. However, in the case of rural multiparty line subscribers, the type service used by most Farm Bureau members, the increase would amount to only about 25 cents per month, except in certain areas where the C&P plans expansions, the letter continued. In these areas, the C&P is enlarging the areas that may be called by subscribers without a toll charge. The increases sought in these areas will be higher, the letter stated. The Board advised county Farm Bureaus to contact their local C&P managers to determine if they are in the expansion area, if so, decide if the proposed expansion will justify the proposed rate increases. If the county decides the increase in rates is too large for the added benefits, then it should notify the VFBF and the State Corporation Commission of its oposition. >-....

6 Looking A. head o i ...by Or. G*org« S. Benton f DIRECTOR — NATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAM Swrcy, ArUmst I Before the Communists went to work with their "brain-washing of American POW's in North Korea they issued a communication to the Communist instructors, analyzing the Americans. "There is little knowledge or understanding, even among U. S. university graduates, of American political history and philosophy, the federal, state and community organizations . . . freedoms, safeguards, checks and balances . . Therefore, the Communist instructors could easily undermine the Americans' respect for their system. The "brainwashing" was amazingly successful. John Edgar Hoover, Director of Ihe FBI, said recently, "America's best and only hope lies in an intelligent and well-informed public opinion; conscious of the evils of Communism and dedicated to the validity and sanctity of democratic tradition." I have just read a list of 165 Communist writers working zealously and effectively in America...

Virginia Farm Bureau News Vol. 18, No. 11 FB Cor vention Opens In Richmond Nov. 25 YFB Opposes C&P Rate Hike Request The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has opposed the proposed rate increases of the C&P Telephone Co. A decision by the State Corporation Commission was postponed until sometime this month. M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the VFBF, filed a statement with the SCS which pointed out that today's dollar is worth only 49 4/10 cents as compared to its 1935-39 value. Farmers are bearing the brunt of the inflation, the statement read. "We realize that in making our appearance here in opposition to an increase in the price charged for rendering telephone service, we are in reality protesting the progressive decrease in the value of money. The real cause of the trouble is inflation which continues on," said the statement. This is more apparent in analyzing the breakdown of the consumer's food dollar this year as compared with 1947. Labor's share, tr...

NOVEMBER, 1957 AFBF Active in 100 Issues During Congress Several Types of Pipe Are Available for Water Systems (Editor's Note: This is one in a series of several stories on water systems and water use equipment. 45% of Virginia farms do not have water under pressure.) A farmer or rural homeowner who is planning a home and farm water system has several decisions to make—among them, what type of pipe to use. J. A. Waller, associate agricultural engineer at VPI, says the kinds of readily available pipe for farm use are galvanized steel pipe, copper pipe or tubing, and plastic pipe. Here are some factors you need in choosing: underground soil corrosion, safe working pressures, effect of freezing, resistance to corrosion inside the pipe, effect on water flavor, effect of hot water, lengths available, comparative weight, ease of bending, comparative costs, and what size is needed to supply water to the different outlets. Galvanized steel pipe has a protective coating (galvanizing) which g...

t Information Department 'Report The Department of Information is charged with the responsibility of making the most efficient use of available publicity media to accomplish the Farm Bureau purposes. To carry out this responsibility, a cooperative effort is necessary between the county information or publicity chairman, the state information department, and the American Farm Bureau Information department. This report encompasses work done by all three of these groups. The main efforts were exerted through newspapers, radio, television, fairbooths. informational pamphlets and newsletters of various types'. NEWSPAPERS The clipping service employed by the state information department returned about 1,000 clipping from Virginia newspapers. All of these stories concerned Farm Bureau activities. Many of these stories were stimulated by county chairmen and some releases were sent from the state and AFBF information offices. In the same line of activity, about 20 counties are now actively p...

NOVEMBER, 1957 Looking A bead o ...by Dr. George S. Benton t DIRECTOR — NATIONAL EOUCATION PROGRAM * S«rcy, ArkanM* Out of the national furor created by Communist Russia's successful earth satellite, "Sputnik," have come a number of political voices declaring that "economy" in government has held back our nation's satellite launching. It's a fair question to ask: What economy in government? The Federal Budget is the biggest in peacetime history. The Budget reduction which the vast majority of the American people demanded earlier this year just did not occur, although the public got the impression from news out of Washington that the economy ax was being swung healthily. The politicians who are sadly shaking their a nonexistent "economy" session of Congress are actually advocating increased Federal government spending and the rejection of any suggestions for cutting taxes next year. Out of all the statements I've read from leaders of our government's satellite program comes the inesc...

Vol. IS 40.. Convention Delegates Adopt 45 Resolution Youth Training Of More Value Than Sputniks, Speaker Says Mrs Haven Smith, chairman of the American Farm Bureau Women's Committee, told delegates to the Virginia Farm Bureau convention that the principles being inculcated in the minds of U.S. youth today are far more important than any Sputniks. Mrs. Smith said we are engaged In a battle now to see if we can push forward with freedom faster than the Russians can with compulsion. "If we can't save our own freedom, we can't hope to save it for others," she commented. The Chappell, Nebraskian said that we are living in a new world.

4 Here Are Resolutions Passed By Convention The delegates to the annual convention last month passed 45 resolutions. Thirty of these concerned state problems and will be presented to the Virginia General Assembly next month. The remaining 15 are recommendations to the American Farm Bureau convention in Chicago. The summary of state resolutions daopted follows • Consumer Retail Sales Tax It is becoming increasingly evident that the expansion of our public school system, our state colleges, hospitals for the mentally ill and our tuberculosis sanatoria, is not keeping pace with our tremendous growth in population. The ever-increasing numbers which must be accommodated by our schools, colleges and other institutions makes it necessary that we provide at an early date large sums of money for critically needed expansion of these facilities; therefore, we recommend that the 1958 session of the General Assembly enact a retail sales tax not to exceed 3 per cent of the retail price of consume...
