In the future, possibly in 1959, the commodity programs are likely to be re-examined with leg...

Dairy Disease Mastitis is a serious disease affecting many dairy herds in Virginia and is the cause of tremendous loss to the dairymen and to the Commonwealth.

8 Resolutions (Continued from Page 7) Individual farms may be surrendered to the county committee and deducted from the allotment to such farms, and shall be reapportioned by the county committee to other farms in the same county, or adjoining counties. Peanuts We support the enactment of peanut legislation which will: 1. Change the definititation of "normal supply" as written in the present basic price support law from 15 per cent to 25 per cent of the estimated domestic consumption plus estimated exports. This increase in the reserve supply level is needed to conform with practices employed, for the past five years, by the U. S. Department of Agriculture and the peanut industry. Also, it is needed to eliminate the necessity for importing peanuts in the event of a bad crop year. It would protect the producer against the possibility of receiving al ower support price brought about through their desire to provide adequate reserves. 2. Provide that peanuts held by CCC be excluded from...

Looking A. head ...by Dr. S*org« S. Ben*or f DIRECTOR - NATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAM Searcy, ArVaniat A Citizen's Political Responsibility In the nationwide elections last month 46,000,000 people voted. That constituted about 60 per cent of the eligible voters in the United States. In other words, four out of every 10 eligible voters failed to exercise this great individual freedom and thus defaulted on their greatest citizenship responsibility. Even though only 60 per cent voted, this was a far bigger percentage than vote regularly in local, county and state elections. The sad fact is that counting all elections, only about 20 per cent of the eligible voters vote regularly. Even among the 60 per cent who did vote last month, not more than 10 per cent actually worked in a precinct political organization trying to win victory for the candidates and issues of a particular political party. In other words, most American citizens are not active politically. The only political responsibilit...

Not long ago a farmer made the statement to me "If I don't top-dress my alfalfa the stand goes out and grass and weeds take over." This is just about the story as a successful alfalfa crop requires plenty of fertilizer and the right amount of lime. Alfalfa is a high yielding, high quality crop that can be used for hay, silage, or pasture if needed. A 10-year average of the alfalfa variety tests on the research stations in Virginia shows an average of 4.1 tons of alfalfa...

6 Talmadge & Compensatory Payments (Continued from Page 1) 50 percent of his individual production.) (4) Pay each farmer a "sales price support" equal to the difference between what he receives for his "domestic production quota" and 100 percent of parity. (In December, 1958, 100 percent of parity for wheat was $2.44 per bushel; for cotton, 38.93 cents per pound; and for corn, $1.76 per bushel.) A farmer would be required to submit a bill of sale with his application for payment. (5) Limit the "sales price support" payment to any individual farmer to $25 thousand. Senator Talmadge says that his bill would "let the farmer plant what he wants and sell it as he pleases." He told the Senate that it would "take the federal government out of the business of buying, storing, and selling farm commodities." THE GEORGIA SENATOR said that he did not offer his bill "as any complete solution to the nation's farm problems." And he pledged his "wholehearted effort and unstinted coopera...

H I HlKfi FB Recommends Curbs On Labor Union Racketeering Farm Bureau's recommendations for legislation to curb labor racketeering activities have been submitted to the U. S. Department of Labor. In a letter to Secretary of Labor James P. Mitchell, AFBF President Charles B. Shuman asked consideration of Farm Bureau's recommendations in the development of the Labor Department's recommendations to Congress next year. Mr. Shuman listed recommendations for legislation in four areas: (1) Secondary Boycotts: Despite the provisions of the Taft-Hartley Act, secondary boycotts continue to be a prominent activity in many labor controversies. Farm Bureau strongly believes that tightening of the language of the Taft-Hartley Act along the lines proposed in Senator Curtis' amendment last year is needed. Furthermore, more effective and expeditious remedy should be provided, including the right of...

2 (Jetting Farmers Together ftbout 80 percent of the agricultural incoiie in the U. S. is derived from over 100 commodities that are called "non-basics." Thf iiMaaining from the priiytiw &nd" sale commodities dcrrll'ig* the war as "basics." (These are cotton, corn, wheat, rice, peanuts and tobacco.) Since that time, about 99 percent of all agricultural legislation introduced in Congress has been aimed at these basics. For all practical purposes then, the term "farm program" deals directly with only the price supported and production adjustment crops. But indirectly, all farmers are effected through price levels and excessive production. Acres taken out of production of basic crops, find their way into the production of non-basics. It resembles a pilotless airplane. Wherever it lands it'll cause trouble. It is only natural that the 80 percenters should be interested, and it is natural that they should have a different opinion as to what is right. The non-basic producers a...

4 A Report To Tobacco Growers 'Freeze' Tobacco Price at 1958 Levels, Save Market Growers Tell Congress The supplies of tobacco held by the Flue Cured Tobacco Stabilization Corporation stood at about 637 million pounds early in March, 1959. L. T. Weeks, general manager of the corporation told about 200 Virginia growers at the annual meeting in Halifax that we're losing our export market at the rate of about five percent per year. He said that prior to World War H, 88 percent of all the flue cured tobacco produced in the world was sold by the United States. Now only 62 percent is produced by the U.S. These two problems, plus an unforseen quirk in the modernized parity formula which continues to force prices up on flue cured and burley tobacco, have caused tobacco men to take a new look at their program and recommend corrective action. Early in March the Tobacco Subcommittee of the House Agriculture Committee held a hearing in Vashington to get the views of tobacco growers. Cong. Watki...
