6 Arizona Supreme Court Justice Speaks On Trend Toward Federal Centralization The honorable M. T. Phelps, justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, has had more experience as a judge than all nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court put together, had before they were appointed to their high offices. Judge Phelps is the dean of Arizona judges. He has served nine years on the Arizona Supreme Court, a part of that time as chief justice. In addition he has had 26 years on the Maricopa County Superior bench. On September 18,1957, Justice Phelps made a speech at the Hiram Club in Phoenix, Ariz. He reviewed this nation's drift away from constitutional government, saying that our descent into dictatorship and tyranny has become clearly apparent since Eisenhower appointed Earl Warren as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Speaking of the present court, Judge Phelps said: "It is the designand purpose of the court to usurp the policymaking powers of the nation. "By its own unconstitutional pro...

MAY, 1958 Importance Of Kohler Strike Case Is In Testing Union Boycott Methods By MATT TRIGGS Assistant Legislative Director, AFBF Occasional dramatic moments, Interspersed by long hours of cross examination to extract a morsel of information from reluctant and forgetful witnesses, have marked the McClellan Committee hearings on the Kohler strike. Kohler is a manufacturer of plumbing wares near Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Four years ago his plants was struck by the United Automobile Workers. The strike continues with desultory picketing and other activities, although production operations at the plant have been restored. The strike was originally called as a result of Kohler's rejection of a number of UAW demands, including a demand for a union shop. Kohler contended they have no right to force any of their employees to join a union. The original causes of the strike, have, however, been pretty well forgotten by both parties. The primary issue, one of many, is now— the reemployment of str...

Vol. 19, No. 6 State Board Sets Up (Commodity Department The state board of directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau this month established a commodity department in the organization, and went on record in support of peanut legislation proposed by Cong. Watkins Abbitt of Virginia. The Board named A. P. Butler, director of information for the VFBF, as staff director of the new commodity department. He will coordinate the activities of six commodity committees that have been established or requested by the voting delegates in past conventions. The commodity committees formed will cover livestock marketing, soybeans, poultry, tobacco, peanuts, and cotton. In other action, the Board endorsed all but one part of the bill introduced by Representative Abbitt concerning peanuts. The major points of the bill are: (1) it will raise the normal carry- over ceiling for peanuts from 15 percent to 25 percent; (2) it will set aside peanuts in the CCC for consideration when acreage allotments and marke...

2 Congress Readies A Labor Bill Washington reporters say that the climate has changed in the capitol in recent weeks and it now appears that the Senate Labor Committee is committed to the reporting of a bill. With elections approaching, the bill most likely will not deal with the real issues. But the bill is important for it will open the door for amendments that could correct a few of the serious gaps in labor legislation. (See story in this issue containing Farm Bureau recommendations.) It appears that efforts will be made to relieve labor leaders of a part of their power of coercion and compulsion. Union leaders should not be permitted to force employers to unionize their workers through boycotts and other methods of force. Union leaders should not be allowed to force a man or woman to join a union in order to gain employment. Unions should not, in short, be allowed to enjoy a monopolistic situation without some guarantees of protection for employers, employees and consumers. Fro...

JUNE, 1958 Virginia Farmers Can Sell More At A Better Price Editor's Note: The Farm Bureau formula for agricultural progress is centered around a formula: the amount sold, times the price received, minus the cost of production, equals net income. Farm Bureau members emphasize in their policies the need for expanding markets, selling more. They emphasize that the price must be competitive, and that efficiency in production can make the difference between profit and loss. A. G. Moffett, supervisor of the Market Expansion Section of the Division of Markets, Virginia Department of Agriculture, begins this month a new series of articles that will appear every other month. The articles will deal primarily with the first two elements in the formula, sellins: and price. Moffett is a farmer from Fauquier. He graduated from VPI, taught vocational agriculture in his native county and farmed for a number of years, and has for the past 10 years been associated with the marketing problems of Virg...

4 Reciprocal Trade Bill Passes House Committee; Rep. Harrison Gets Amendment; Farm Bureau Okays Recent action of the House Ways and Means Committee in reporting a five year extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act represents a major victory for Farm Bureau and the advocates of international trade. The House bill would give the President authority to reduce present tariffs by 25 percent over the five year period in exchange for similar concessions from other countries. TARIFF RATES could not be reduced by more than 10 percent in any single year. The President would be given alternate authority to reduce tariff rates by two percentage points—or, he could reduce rates over 50 per cent down to that figure. THE COMMITTEE adopted two amendments recommended by Farm Buraeu. The first expresses the sense of Congress that the President shall seek information and advice from representatives of industry, agriculture, and labor when negotiating a trade agreement. FARM BUREAU has urged th...

JUNE, 1958 The Great Challenge Counties, State Must Raise Funds For Needs Without Losing Power to Fed. Government County and state governments are inch by inch losing their rights to govern. Through a series of edicts by the Supreme Court and bills passed by the Congress, many traditional functions of state and county governments have been placed in the hands of the growing federal government. Now these smaller units of govtrnment find that one of the greatest problems they must face is in the form of a financial challenge, ie, "How to meet the mushrooming needs of their growing populations without yielding more of their rights to the giant in Washington?" These governments find themselves surrounded by an army of federal taxes, reams of red tape regulations, and an uncompromising voice of \he people demanding no tax increase. To make the situation even more ulcerfying the big central government is hanging out more and more tempting bait for grabs in the form of federal aid for scho...

JUNE, 1958 AS FARM BUREAU SEES IT Farm Bureau Presents Reasoning Behind Its Recommended Farm Program Changes Senator Allen J. Ellender, Louisiana chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, wrote all of the 48 state Farm Bureaus, asking their opinions on changes in the farm program. The changes had been recommended by the American Farm Bureau Federation, dealing primarily with corn and feed grains. The following letter was written to Senator Ellender and his committee by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. The letter contains the resolution on which the Farm Bureau proposed changes are based, and the philosophy growing out of current situations relative to certain crops. We are finding many farmers raising serious questions as to the real value of rigid price supports coupled with strictly enforced production controls as a means of insuring prosperity and progress for farmers. At its annual convention in November 1957, the Virginia Farm Bureau adopted the following resolution. It...

Vol. 19, Nc 3 State I Refers Amend County The State Board of Directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has referred the proposed amendment to the state by-laws concerning a definition of membership, back to county Farm Bureaus for study. The Board had received objections to the proposed amendment from a few counties. In view of the opposition, the Board said it felt that there was some misunderstanding among the counties as to the meaning of the by-laws. The Board directed the staff to 6urvey the counties to determine the different types of definitions being used under which members participate in the service program. After the staff collects these different systems, it will redistribute lliem to all counties and ask the counties to be prepared to recommend a solution to the problem. The proposed amendment follows. "Individual members of county Farm Bureaus shall be entitled, if otherwise eligible, to the benefits of any service program which may he provided by the State Fede...

2_ The Eye Of The Master Fattens His Cattle Any successful livestock feeder will agree with the good sense expressed in the title of this editorial. In watching carefully over the feeding and care of his animals, he assures himself of the lowest possible production costs and maximum profits. As farmers and as consumers, however, we actually hire and pay the wages and salaries of a great many people whose work we cannot supervise. How would you watch, for example, the people in Detroit who made your automobile or those in Des Moines who made your tractor or the people in Baltimore who made the suit of clothes you wear to church on Sunday? The answer is, of course —you can't. Not directly anyway. But we don't need to—ttfat is as long as we enjoy our free choice system. Good work shows up in the quality and the price of whatever we buy and we hire those who give us better values. Those who trifle around or practice bad management don't get our patronage—the price is either too. high or...

JULY, 1958 Tribute To Montgomery F.B. An Excellent Worthy Agreement Mr. J. W. Strickler, Jr., President of the Tri-County Hunt Club, Blacksburg, Virginia, sent us a copy of an agreement drawn up between their hunt club, the Montgomery County, Virginia, Farm Bureau, and their livestock Protection Association. This indeed was a brilliant stroke made by the foxhunters of Southwestern Virginia. Such a covenant makes for a better understanding between the farmers and landowners and those who love to foxhunt. It will create respect and a better feeling among the members of both organizations that have so often bitterly fought one another. It will cause the hunters to respect the land and stock of the countryside and if these agreements are lived up to the foxhunters should be accepted and esteemed. We heartily recommend this contract and it would be well if the Foxhunting Associations and groups of individual foxhunters over the United States consider this agreement, read it carefully, di...

JULY, 1958 FB Opposes Dairy 'Production Control and Tax' Program The American Farm Bureau Federation said last week that a "dairy production control and tax plan" now under consideration by Congress "could only make conditions worse." In strongly worded testimony at a House Agriculture Subcommittee hearing, L. L. Lovcll—representing Herbert YV. Voorhees, a member of the executive committee of the AFBF Board of Directors—said the proposed plan would redace dairy farmers' incomes even though it raised prices to consumers. Mr. Voorhees had planned to present the statement, but was unable to attend the hearing because of illness [n addition to Mr. Lovell, Farm Bureau witnesses included L. O. Jacob, a member of the board of directors of the Minnesota FBF, and E. F. Hornback, representing the Texas FB.

JULY, 1958 House Kills 'Christmas Tree' Farm Bill Bill Contained 'Good and Bad' has set up for debate the "Christmas Tree" farm bill passed by its agriculture committee. The bill contains many provisions — something for everybody — some of which are called good or acceptable by Farm Bureau, and some labeled as unacceptable and definitely bad for agriculture. President Roy B. Davis, Jr., of the Virginia Farm Bureau, has said that the bad in the bill will out weigh the good and that he is hopeful that Congress will institute the needed corrections to make the bill helpful to agriculture. Many provisions of the 62-page house bill, number 12654, are subject to interpretation and are technical and difficult to follow. The bill deals with the following parts of the agricultural program, Extension of the Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance Act, commonly known as Public Law (P.L.) 480; rice, cotton, wheat, milk and feed grains. P.L. 480 The bill would extend for one year the Agric...

The equalization of incomes and property can be effected short of force through several clever socialistic methods. For instance, today, 44 per cent of the farmers produce 90 per cent of the food. Is it any wonder that the votehungry, left-wing Congressmen are so concerned and outspoken in their defense of the "little farmer?"—that other 56 per cent.
