Shuman of Sullivan, HI., president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, laid down a four-point program for better agricultural security at the 32nd annual Virginia Farm Bureau Federation convention at the John Marshall Hotel here last week: • Substitute true price support for the existing "price fixing" plan at the national level. • Control monopoly in industry and labor —against which agriculture has never been able to compete. • Expand the use and market for agricultural products. • Work at the local level on such problems as increasing land taxes. Complicated, arbitrary, legalistic formulas for determining price suports have "operated ...

Vol. 19, NO. 1 VFBF N embership over 17,000; Works Listed Executive Secretary Reports Year's Activity For 1957 So far as our activities at the. state level are concerned, 1957 may very properly be termed a VALC year—a year in which the Virginia Advisory Legislative Council has been giving careful study to many of our troublesome problems at the state level, including many that have an important bearing on the welfare of agriculture. The matter of providing adequate financial support for our public school system, our institutions of higher learning and other necessary and essential functions of state and local government continues to be a critical problem. The Farm Bureau, for a number of years, has been convinced that if we are to solve this problem, we must broaden our tax base in such a way that all citizens will pay their fair share of the cost. We have done our best to impress our oolitical leaders, including the 1i nembers of the VALC Tax Study Commission, that the answer to ( ...

4 VFB Mutual Insurance Co. Notes Remarkable Progress, 28,000 Policies in 7 Year History The Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co., has come from an idea, that many thought impractical and impossible live years ago, to a rapidly growing company with 30,000 policies and over a million and a half dollars in assets. The company, which was established as a money-saving service for Farm Bureau members only, had 5,800 policies at the end of the first year of operation paying a total premium of almost $250,000. Premiums paid by Farm Bureau members insured totaled over a million dollars in 1957. The company has paid over $100,000 in dividends in the last three years, on auto and fire policies alone. The agency force has grown from a few in only 10 or 15 counties to 85 agents in 82 Virginia counties. The company now boasts a competent adjusting staff, with nine adjusters patrolling the counties in the state providing quick and efficient claims service for policyholders. Must Like # Life i...

Your recommendations were substantially put into effect by the U. S. Department of Agriculture administrative action and we feel that our tobacco program will be on a much sounder basis because of this action. At a later date, a spokesman for the VFBF appeared before a subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and presented a statement in support of the resolution which you adopted on the Flue Cured Tobacco program at your annual meeting in 1956. It now appears that action in reducing support levels on undesirable varieties may be sufficient to insure the production of the types and varieties of flue cured for which there is most demand. The VFBF also appeared before a subcommittee of the House Agriculture Committee in opposition to H. R. 769, a proposed amendment to P.L. 480 which would have authorized the export of 1...

6 4 Join and Support A National Farm Organization'—DeHart (The following statement was issued by P. H. DeHait, 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 **••• ... -.v.•.•••«■» i 11 p- mpir j i i||K « IBIPIBK 11 i. j P. H.

Each individual farmer is on his own to meet this competition through increased efficiency of production through changes in operations within his ...

Vol. IS Agriculture Needs $ 1,625,433 From Assembly Va. Farm Bureau Registers Objection To Proposed Change In Peanut, Tobacco Programs The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) has registered its objection to changes proposed in the farm program for peanuts, cotton and tobacco. Roy B. Davis, Jr., president, in a letter to members of the Virginia Congressional delegation and in a wire to President Eisenhower said that the VFBF will oppose any change in the present programs for peanuts, cotton and tobacco, and will oppose giving the Secretary of Agriculture power to set the level of price supports and allotments. This, Davis said, would concentrate too much authority in the hands of one individual and could be used to harm agriculture by setting price supports too low and thereby shifting the govern-ment-induced surpluses to the shoulders of the American farmer. Davis stated that Farm Bureau felt that specific proposals relating tq indivdual commodities should l>e develope...

FEBRUARY, 1958 choices For Agriculture In Annual Address allow current trends to continue until a satisfactory balance is reached. On the contrary much needs to be done and much can be done to reach the objective we desire in an orderly manner. There is much evidence that we are moving in the proper direction to achieve a balance between agriculture and the other segments of our economy. But there are those who propose that the shortest road to that balance can be built by the federal government. While I do not question the honest and sincerity of the proponents of these Ideas, I do ask that they weigh them in the light of their over-all economic effect. Let us examine one of the current proposals. It is proposed, now in the case of cotton, that farm prices be allowed to seek their level in the market place and farmers be given payments based on the diffei'ence between the market price and a governmentally established support level, such as parity prices, or a percentage thereof.

When the Gablonzers began to merchandise their wares, P. S. authorities helped a little with housing and leased them land space on the dump. The men borrowed axes, felled trees, hauled them and had them cut into rough timber for their expanding needs. In 1947, when the U. S. Army unit moved, there were four firms of Gablonzers, working 22 people. The Army C. O. shook his head, unbelieving: The four firms were selling merchandise as far away as America. Two years later many more Czechs from old Gablonz had arrived; there were by then 156 firms with 1,470 people working.

FEBRUARY, 1958 Annual Address of VFBF President Davis (Continued from Page S) girls to meet the competition of the future. To finance the needed improvements in our public school system, In our institutions of higher learning, and to eliminate some of the taxes now collected on real and personal property, our legislature should enact a retail sales tax. Each year we delay the needed capital outlays on the state and local level, the job becomes larger and proportionately more costly. A sales tax would provide the funds to improve our education facilities, make our teacher's pay more competitive and spread the support of our schools among all our citizens. It should not be considered a tax of last resort but should be imposed now during this period of relatively high personal income. If we wait until other taxes fail to produce the revenue necessary to support our state government such a tax will be a much greater imposition on our citizens. Let's get ahead so that we wil be in a bett...

Vol. 19, Agricultural Appropriations Praised by State Leaders When the Virginia General Assembly adjourned the scoreboard showed 12 Farm Bureau resolutions considered; 10 acted on favorably, and two killed. In addition, Farm Bureau leaders who worked in cooperation with state leaders to gain sufficient funds for agricultural agencies and institutions, had high praise for the work of the Assembly in the liscal matters. The Assembly acted favorably on bills dealing with agricultural research, the milk commission, livestock inspection, illegitimacy and welfare, gas tax refunds, integration, taxing of vehicles, rural industry, press relations, and a livestock diagnostic laboratory. The two Farm Bureau bills that were killed were the sales tax bill and one dealing with stricter penalties for drunken driving, and speeding on the highways.

2 Ask and Ask and Ask For fiscal 1959, the Federal government proposes to spend $74 billion, a peacetime record high. In the face of this tremendous budget (ten short fiscal years ago the budget was $40 billion), hope for a tax cut is dimmed; the nation's debt ceiling will be breached; deficit spending threatens again. The average taxpayer must except to the poet's dictum: "Never ask of money spent/Where the spender thinks it went." The taxpayer has a right to ask where the money "went." While he will support reasonable spending to make the nation strong, he ought to ask how defense money is being spent, ask it be spent wisely. More important, he should insist "domestic spending as usual" be curtailed. He should, for example, ask why spending for civil benefits is likely to be $1.3 billion higher in fiscal 1959 than in fiscal 1957—before Sputnik shot into the shy. It is often asked: just where does all this money go? In the table below, Tax Foundation, Inc. shows what the new budget...
