2 Confusion at the Meat Counter If surveys conducted of late give an accurate picture, it would seem that housewives' meat-buying practices and habits leave much to be desired from the point of view of the meat producer and the meat industry in general. Several different studies have led us to believe that considerable confusion exists at the consumer level over grades and quality of meat, as well as the best way to prepare any particular cut. It has been hinted time and again that the average homemaker doesn't know as much about meat as she should. A recent survey conducted by Colorado State University that came to our attention does little to dispel these impressions. When housewives were asked in this study whether they preferred self-service or personal butcher service in making beef purchases, they replied two to one in favor of the latter. Yet, the same women gave self-service supermarkets a three to one advantage over small groceries and meat markets when faced with the quest...

AUGUST, 1958 Standard Of Living Of U. S. Farm Families Rises Levels of living of farm-operator families in the United States were consistently higher in 1956 than in 1954 for the country as a whole and for every geographical region, according to a publication issued recently by USDA. Farm-operator families reporting ownership or use of the following items showed 1956: electricity, from 93 to 94 per sent; telephones, Benson (Continued from Page 2) farm leaders, agricultural economists, and Secretary Benson's official family in the Agriculture Department. After more than five years, however, the program has, made only a little headway toward the goals—elimination of surpluses, stoppage of all but emergency price supports, and the returning of the business of agriculture to informal consumer control through the free market. Secretary Benson apparently has found it impossible in a political establishment such as the Federal government to set definite deadlines for accomplishing the vari...

e Sen. Robertson Plays Important Roll In Passage of Reciprocal Trade Bill The Senate has passed the bill which extends the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act and Virginia Senator A. Willis Robertson was very active in support of the bill. Only July 16, Sen. Robertson spoke on the floor of the Senate in support of the bill. Following are excerpts of his remarks. "Virginia is both an agricultural, and an industrial and mining, state. Some 240,000 persons in Virginia live on farms, according to the Department of Agriculture. By coincidence approximately the same number were, as of the 1954 census, employed in manufacturing industry. Some 21,000 persons are employed in mining. "First, let us see how the interests of Virginia farmers are affected by foreign trade. It is estimated that in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1957, Virginia shared, directly or indirectly, to the extent of nearly $41 million in United States total exports of $2.8 billion worth of farm products. Outstanding in this ...

Looking A. bead o ...by Dr. Georg* S. Btnion DIRECTOR — NATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAM S«arcy, Artantat - A Farm Leader's Warning A vital Ingredient of leadership is the courage to buck the stream, a willingness to face unpopularity if sound logic requires it. Most of the worthwhile advances in America have come as a result of the exercise of sound and courageous leadership. Charles B. Shuman, a farmer who has just completed a year as president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, demonstrates these high qualities of leadership. At a time when a further veering toward Socialism in America could be disastrous, Charles Shuman has written an editorial in The Nation's Agriculture saying some things we should all think upon. Here it is: "Which way does the wind blow . . ? There are economic and political winds that determine the kind of government we will have in the future. No one can see the wind—few can see which way our nation is going. We are so involved in current issues that it is ...

2 Super-Blooper With the adoption of the Area Redevelopment Act, the federal government once again digs into everybody's pocketbook for the purpose of starting a new program to solve problems that are none of its business in the first place. The idea is to subsidize the location or relocation of industries for the relief of unemployment in areas of the country suffering from chronic unemployment or under-employ-ment. People who are smart enough to operate a successful business, in general, have sufficient intelligence to know where a new venture is most likely to succeed. If an existing manufacturing enterprise is to be relocated, what are some of the things that management looks for? Favorable tax rates. Good schools. Good roads. Good rail and air connections. An ample supply of the type of labor needed. Water. The type of political climate that is favorable to good management-labor relations. Which of these requirements can properly be met by the federal government? These are all ...

4 What Is Happening To County Government In Virginia? Tazewell Farm Bureau Attempts to Improve, Modernize Its Form Of Self Government "Our county government has come out of the horse and buggy days into big business." To prove this statement, George Barnes, px-esident of the Tazewell Farm Bureau, presents figures that show the total money spent for self government in the county has increased from $1.5 million in 1950, to $2.8 million in 1957. The cost of government in seven years has increased by 82%. The situation is about the same In all Virginia counties, as indicated by the rise in county indebtedness. The total debt has" risen from $20 million in 1947 to approximately $179 million in 1957. But Tazewell is one of the few that has decided to do something about the problem. It all started in June, 1957, when the Farm Bureau in Tazewell met with the Parent Teachers Association. The PTA was anxious to incorporate the 12 year system in the county schools. Farm Bureau agreed, but insi...

SEPTEMBER, 1958 Farm Bureau Loses State's Rights, Social Security, Aid To Education, Labor Legislative Fights; Wins on Trade, Mineral Subsidy; Farm Bill Watered Down The Farm Bureau has suffered severe set backs jn its legislative battles against inflation, big government, and socialism. In the final weeks Congress passed bills extending Social Security payments, granting aid to states for educational purposes, and killed the labor reform and state's rights bills. The Congress acted favorably in extending the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act, Public Law 480, and in killing the insidious mineral subsidy bill. The Farm Bill, although passed, was watered down, and is now considered to be of questionable long term value. Social Security The Social Security bill provides for the following: (a) Social Security will be paid on a maximum of $4,800 annual earnings rather than the $4,200 provided in the present law. (b) The tax was increased on employees from 2 1 /.4, per cent to 2*4 per cent,...

How can we sleep nights knowing that the Court says "it is hardly lack of due process for the federal government to regulate that which it subsidizes," knowing that with each session of Congress more and more subsidies are being poui'ed into more and more activities of states and individuals? What can we say to the freedom loving people of North Carolina who elect a Congressman, Harold Cooley, who said in an interview with Tom Anderson, editor of the Farm and Ranch, "Anybody who believes agriculture can ever be free from controls and subsidies is stupid." Or, what are the freedom loving people of Georgia saying about their Senator Talmadge, who told Anderson, "Tom, people I talk with here believe that the United States will be 100 per cent socialistic in 10 to 25 years. It can't be stopped." What about the freedom lovers in Mississippi, who h...

Communism Is more likely to thrive In an empty head than In an empty •tomach. Vol. 19, No. 10 VFBF To Sponsor Fat Cattle Sales In Richmond Next Year The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation will sponsor several fat cattle sales on the Richmond market during 1959. A committee has been appointed by President Roy B. Davis, Jr., of the VFBF, to set up the sales. Committee members are Joe Warren, Mecklenburg; J. C. Rea, Cumberland; T. Kent Loving, Fluvanna; B. Z. Clarke, Dinwiddie; end John F. Haile, Essex. The State Department of Agriculture has said that there is a growing interest in these sales among farmers in Virginia, and that the sales can be of real service to farmers. Last year, although the participation was light among farmers, the fat cattle sold in the Richmond sales averaged over $18.00 per head more than the cattle sold in regular sales. The committee will hold its first meeting this month and hopes to work out details that will encourage a great participation by farmers in th...

A top-heavy 80 per cent thought food is too expensive in the stores today, and two-thirds have the (erroneous) idea that food costs have climbed faster than wages. Asked to estimate what part of their incomes are spent on food, on automobile cost and operation, and on federal taxes, consumers (about 60 per cent) correctly set their food spending between 20 and 30 per cent of their budgets.

OCTOBER, 1958 By A. Grant Moflfett, Dir. of Market Expansion, Div. of Markets, V.D.A. Virginia's Eastern Shore plans to push sales of Nemagold sweets resulted from success of farmers bargaining on price and outlets for cannery sweet potatoes. Eastern Shore farmers had a marketing problem—how to market those sweets too small for the fresh market pack? Close sizing and grading at the packing shed and on the farm left the small and jumbo size potato behind. Most of the small sweet potatoes were going to canners, but prices were low and demand uncertain. Farmers and packers were selling to truckers canvassing from farm to farm for a "pay load". Truckers sold to canners on a load basis rather than on a grade-out basis. Even sweet potato cannery operators were dissatisfied. Potatoes delivered were uneven in size and quality. Deliveries were on a hit end miss basis with no orderly marketing plan in high gear. Finally, Eastern Shore farmers got together and decided something must be done an...
