6 King George Farm Bureau Has Unusual and Sucessful Project The King George County Farm Bureau has developed a unique and unusual project for the county that is proving very successful. The Farm Bureau has purchased a bulldozer and made it available for use to farmers In the county at a very reasonable price. Members of the Farm Bureau are permitted to use the machine at a rate that is $2.00 per hour less than the non-member rate. If a farmer has as much as five hours of bulldozer work to do, It's Just good business to join Farm Bureau. But county president Edward Taylor, of Sealston, says the question is, "Will he pay his dues again next year?" George Hall, county extension agent, is the man credited by Taylor with conceiving the idea and engineering the interest and funds with which to purchase the equipment. Hall explains that the $20,000 worth of equipment was declared Army surplus and presented to the Stafford School Board. The Board, under the arrangements, was to keep the mac...

9 SENSING THE NEWS Collapse Day By Thurman Sensing Southern States Industrial Council Michigan, the state of Walter Reuther and Governor G. Mennen (Soapy) Williams, was saved this winter by a group of public-spiritcd businessmen. The story of how they saved their state from ruin received little display in the nation's press. And yet it is one of the most startling and significant stories of recent years. On February 15th. the State of Michigan was dead broke. There was a $100 million deficit. The state has been unable to make payments to Michigan's universities since last November. The universities had been borrowing from banks in order to pay professors and keep the buildings heated and illuminated. The people of Michigan looked forward to February 15th, using the term "Collapse Day." Fortunately, free enterprise came to the rescue. Manufacturing concerns in Michigan handed over to the state government more than $35 million in taxes from two to four months ahead of their due date. ...

APRIL, 1959 Louisa Farmer Makes Part-Time Pay Well LOUISA, January 28—A Louisa county man who farms only parttime is demonstrating that good judgment, careful planning, and heavy fertilization bring good returns, according to T. C. Andrews, county agent. B. A. Hasher, of Route 5, Louisa, owns a farm of 103 acres, of which 40 are in crops and 35 in permanent pasture. His sales amount to $3,500 to $3,700 a year. For some operations, this would be called full-time; but about three years ago Mr. Hasher figured out that he could do it on half-time, if he mangcd well, so he found a job which employs him about halftime. Cropland on the Hasher farm is In wheat, sun-cured tobacco, clover and grasses, and allalfa. Pastures, seeded to all grasses and ladino clover, have been fertilized so well that the 35 acres carry 27 head of Hereford cattle.

Those who appro- priate pub 11 o funds fix the tax bill. Vol. 20, No. 5 Farm Bureau Opposes Payment Plan The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has written its members of Congress in opposition to the production payment plan being proposed for agriculture. The letter written by M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary, said, "The adoption of the production payment principle, the two-price plan, the Brannan plan, compensatory payment plan, or whatever other disguise it may masquerade under, will effectively sabotage the best interests of everybody except the lazy, the indifferent, the inefficient. In full scale operation, it would place an unbearable burden on an already seriously overburdened federal treasury. Any possible savings to consumers in the form of cheaper food would be much more than offset by increases in taxes made necessary by the expensive army of bureaucrats required to police and administer such a program. And finally, this plan would place in the hands of a federal agency a...

2 :' - ill vfIHL BBm Ha m Sraffiyß SENSING THE NEWS Unionism: Image and Challenge In the final days of Senate debate on the mistakenly labeled labor "reform" bill, the ugly character of modern unionism was exposed in a small North Carolina town. Weeks of labor violence against the Harriet Henderson Cotton Mills and its nonstriking employes culminated in nightly barrages of riflefire by union sympathizers. Bullets shattered the window of a state police vehicle. Non-strikers were forced to risk their lives in order to earn their bread. Despite obvious abuses of freedom committed by unionists, the Senate refused to enact legislation needed to fully protect American working men and their employers. A compromise was reached in the Senate. Only one Senator dissented. I can understand why this lone Senator took this stand. He said the Senate had labored long "and like the proverbial mountain it brought forth the proverbial mouse." I can also understand the position of those conservative Se...

He pointed out that this principle would place part of the farmers income in the hands of government. He cited examples of how citizens have fared at the hands of government in the past, and said that "we are perilously close . . . to a dictatorship by the judiciary." Those of us from the south should have even less difficulty in understanding clearly the full meaning and the terrific dangers to our pattern of self-government that are inherent in the present situation. "It is shocking that some who prattle loudest about states' rights should be found in the ranks of those who would compound the problem by concentrating the fearsome power that goes with the control of the nation's economic system into the hands of the same bullheaded blunderers who are responsible for the political and judicial miscarriages from which we are now suffer...

6 Carroll FB Has Project for Deserving Youth { When farmers father they like to chat about their problems. It's too dry, too wet, hail or wind might be the problem, low prices for the commodities they sell and high prices for the things they buy; all of these make talk topics. Another one that comes up most frequently is the shortage and high cost of labor. They talk about all the youngsters leaving the farm to seek their fortunes in the city and how it's almost impossible for a little farmer to make a living and next to impossible to interest his sons in staying on the farm. Many of these sons would like to stay on the farm but many times the home farm isn't large enough to support two families and it takes a lot of money to buy another place with the equipment necessary to make a living. The Carroll county Farm Bureau has heard many such discussions Youth Partnership freshly killed hog, as he discusses Carroll County Farm Bureau's partnership with youth program. 1 ;; ■ i X. &a...
