E. Flory director of services for the VFBF. The additional cost for this coverage should be $10.00 or less the first year, and then no charge thereafter.

MARCH, 1958 Legislature Passes 10 FB Bills (Continued from Page 1) Station i*eceived about $11,000 it had requested for maintenance and operation. Department of Agriculture The Department of Agriculture received approximately $168,000 it had asked for. Included in this was $30,000 for livestock disease control, $18,000 for seed testing work, $48,268 for regulation of the sale of animal remedies, and $72,000 for the administration of the dairy law. In addition to this, appropriations were granted that will enable the reopening of both the lime grinding plants at Staunton and Appomattox. Farm Bureau issued special commendations for the work done on these appropriations by Sen. Charles T. Moses, of Appomattox, and Sen. Curry Carler, of Augusta county. The appropriations bill also contained $75,000 to be used by the Governor in supplementing the salaries of key agricultural research personnel in the state.

6 AFBF Asks County Farm Bureau To Study New Price Support Plan The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) has proposed a new program for supporting farm prices of corn and other feed grains to Congress, and has asked County Farm Bureaus to study the plan with respect to other basic and supported commodities. An AFBF spokesman told the Senate Agriculture subcommittee hearing that the new approach would avoid "misusing" the parity formula and could "help to rescue" the price support program from the "crossfire of partisan politics." Roger Fleming, AFBF secretarytreasurer, asked that beginning in 1959, corn acreage allotments should be terminated and the price of corn supported at 90 percent of the average, farm "weighted price" for the previous three-year period. He recommended that price supports for other feed grains—oats, rye, barley, and grain sorghumsbe comparable to the corn price support "after adjustments for difference in feed value and other factors." Fleming said that there...

MARCH, 1958 Report of the Women's Chairman Mrs. Alexander Writes Diary Of European Tour (Editor's Note: Mrs. E. E. Alexander, Rustburg, chairman of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Women's Committee, made a trip to Europe in January. She wrote a diary for the Virginia Farm Bureau yews day by day, as her trip unfolded. Unfortunately her correspondence was delayed in the mails and she returned home before her letters, which accounts for the delay in this report.) By Mrs. E. E. Alexander I am on my way. I am headed toward places I've often pictured and dreams I've wished would come true. The first few days of our voyage have been not only trying from the standpoint of finding our way around the ship, the U.S.S. Independence, but concentrating on keeping our feet on the floor. It is nothing unusual to see someone topple over or slide across the deck. So far we have one man with a broken arm, another with a broken ankle. By now all the passengers are attending their meals regularly ...

Vol. 19, I s Sen ]rd And Robertson Give Opinions On Recession, Tax Cuts and Inflation Recession Temporary, Says Robertson Senator A. Willis Robertson on March 16, made the following comments on the economic situation in the country. 1. Do you favor a cut in income taxes? I am not prepared at this time to support an income tax cut: In the first place because I am not convinced that it is justified on the basis of the existing recession and in the face of mounting evidence that the deficit in the Federal budget next year will be much higher than was previously predicted and, secondly, because no plan for income tax reduction has as yet been given the full consideration which should precede any such step. 2. Do you favor a program of public works, more extensive than those already announced by the President? I voted this week for a bill to speed up the housing program, but I certainly would not support a public works program which would in any way resemble the old PWA "leaf raking" of ...

2 Agriculture's Inflation-Recession The economic phenominon we are now experiencing— the recession during and inflation —is being magnified to unrealistic proportions by politicians during this election year. The most serious danger in our situation is that the American people will buy the magnification and accept the "quick 1 remedy, crash programs" being proposed by some members '<5f Congress. The situation could parallel developments in agriculture since 1951. The value and significance of price supports have been oversold to farmers, to the point that many cannot see ever riding their farms of this form of government help. Others have realized that price supports are not the "salvation of farmers" that they were sold to believe during and after the war but they cannot see how to "dismount the tiger" without being fatally clawed. It is significant that those commodities that do not have governments price supports and the inevitable controls are in a sound position now,...

6 Watt Flippo, of Hermco county, proudly displays record sized egg and happy hen. The egg is pictured Happy Hen along side a normal sized egg. The big one measures nine inches around the ends, and slightly over seven and one quarter inches around the middle. Watt has placed the egg in his hen house with this note: "Here it is girls! Do the best you can." Shortly after the big egg was laid, Watt said he discovered another egg about the size of a marble. Perhaps hens have a sense of humor too. (We've just heard that Watt broke the big egg open and found inside another complete egg, shell and all. lie hasn't opened that one yet!

APRIL, 1958 START YOUR CORN RIGHT W. W. LEWIS, Extension Agronomist, V.P.I. The yield of corn produced per acre in Virginia has just about doubled since 1935, while the acreage planted to corn has decreased 45 per cent. In 1957 there were 797,000 acres of corn planted in the state. The use of improved corn production practices has been greatly responsible in increasing corn yields. Today about 91.0 percent of the corn acreage in Virginia is planted to hybrid corn. It costs just as much to plow, harrow, plant and cultivate to grow 30 bushels per acre as it does to grow 100 bushels. It will cost about $1.10 per bushel for a 40 bushel per acre yield while the cost to produce 100 bushels will be reduced to about 55 to 62 cents per bushel. Generally higher yields of crops means higher profit per acre. Listed below are some suggestions which will help in efficient production of corn. 1. Choose a good soil — corn does best on fertile well drained soil. Keep corn off of steep land where ero...

MAY, 1958 Farm Bureau Position On Price Support Freeze Praised, Criticized and Analyzed The most recent Virginia Farm Bureau action on price supports was to oppose the bill which would have frozen supports on all commodities at the 1957 level. The bill was vetoed by President Eisenhower in accord with Farm Bureau recommendations. In answer to questions about Farm Bureau's stand, President of the VFBF Roy B. Davis, Jr., has given the following answers. Did Farm Bureau take the action base# on recommendations of its members? Yes. Farm Bureau has long been on record as favoring those measures which would place the operation of government farm programs last state convention the following on a sound economic basis. At the statement was adopted relating to the farm program. "We favor progressively removing the federal price supports and controls except on cotton, tobacco and peanuts.

4 Plan For Financial Security By Social Security Administration What is one of man's chief worries today? Briefly, it can be stated that—the fear of financial insecurity—is the main worry. Let us dwell briefly on how Americans, individually and collectively, can build constantly toward a greater degree of financial security and independence than was ever thought possible. Now, what do we mean by the phrase, "individually and collectively." It indicates very accurately that the kind of financial security we are seeking for ourselves and our families is based upon a combination of things that require a continuing effort on the part of individuals, government, Industry, commerce and our financial institutions. Everyone cannot make a million dollars but the desire of every man to provide himself and his family with an adequate income in retirement or after death is an objective that is within the reach of most workers — If they take advantage of all opportunities that are available to t...
