2 More 'Equal Shares' M. Recently the U. S. House of Representatives tacked an amendment on the Appropriations Bill which would place a ceiling of $50,000 on the price support loan available to any one farm. In the wheat bill passed by the Senate a ceiling of $35,000 was included. On the surface, unless farmers think about this a little, it would be easy to get the impression that those who advocate such ceilings are real friends of the small farmer. This is far from true. Actually a better way to demoralize the small farmer's market could hardly be devised. Take, for example a wheat grower whose crop may have a price-supported market value of $100,000. Under the bill sponsored by that gallant champion of the small farmer, Mr. Hubert Humphrey, that wheat grower would be limited to $35,000 worth of wheat which he could put under loan. He would be forced to market the remaining $65,000 worth at whatever price the open market offered. It is safe to assume that this would be some below ...

lINE, 1959 \ Report From the Wom/en'g Committee Safety Through Sound Thought By Mrs. E. E. Alexander Chairman Women's Committee Virginia Farm Bureau Federation We talk about being safety conscious on the farm, the highways, the plant and in our homes. This brings a question to my mind—Are we conscious about our thinking? We have been told that our thoughts direct our acts. This leads to much good, but alas, here the danger too may creep in. Are we keeping our freedom safe? pwight D. Eisenhower says, "Freedom must be daily earned and refreshed else it will wither and die." We as Americans want meaning in our lives; only a free America can be effective and meaningful American. We as free Americans must recognize the dangers that arise from improper thinking—or not thinking at all—and be prepared to do something to maintain our freedom and way of life. When freedom is threatened speak up, for there can be no peace without YOU. Where else in this world can this spark come from but from ...

2 Solution to County Budget County governments throughout the the United States generally have one common ground—they're having problems getting enough money to meet their needs. Consequently, there is considerable discussion across the country in state legislatures on the subject of governmental reorganization. In several states, discussions have centered around a reduction in the number of counties, elimination of overlapping, and all out economy. In the state of Connecticut the Genera] Assembly has voted to abolish its county governments. However, the state had only eight counties and through the years their functions had been greatly reduced. About all that remained to be abolished was operation of the jails. There is no denying that government is expensive and getting more so all the while, but we question the logic of abolishing the form of government that is closest to the people and has the best chance of being efficient. There could conceivably be logic in uniting one or mo...

4_ Looking A bead u ...by Dr. George S. Benton DIRECTOR — NATIONAL EDUCATION PRO6RAM Searcy, Arkaniai America's communications institutions—our newspapers, television, radio, motion picture theaters, magazine and book publishers, and other media—have a greater responsibility today than ever before in history. That's because world Communism has one of the most extensive and certainly the most cunning propaganda organizations the world has ever known, and its No. 1 target is the minds of the American people. Our communications arteries must be on guard to resist Communist infiltration and not be "used" or duped in any manner by the clever maneuvers of Red propagandists. From time to time some of the most important of our communications institutions have been victimized by the Communists. When the Republic of China was fighting for its life against the Communist hordes armed and directed from Moscow, highly respected avenues of American communications carried propaganda undermining the...

The question: Are food prices highf (How do they compare icith food prices in other landsf J This story attempts to answer this question. Here is a paragraph from a cookbook issued in the 1900's and widely circulated among American housewives of that day. "To clean fish. This is done by drawing a knife over fish, beginning at the tail and working towards the head, occasionally wiping the knife and scales from fish. Incline knife slightly to ward you to prevent scales from flying . . And so on, through the process of cleaning one fish, then another; then boning and filleting. Finally, our housewife of the 1900's piled the fish into a pan of hot grease as clouds of fish-laden smoke rose to the ceiling. What about today? A housewife opens a package of fish sticks and follows the directions: "Hea...

2 Oops! There Goes Another Sales Tax Bill Sam Pope, delegates from Southampton in the Virginia General Assembly, is affectionately known among his colleagues in the legislature as "Sam the sales tax man." He is so known because he has been the author of the sales tax bills which have appeared at every session for many years. But Del. Pope is not alone in his desire for a sales tax. Quite to the contrary, in recent years, a great many Virginians have supported the sales tax. This support is most vocal in rural areas. The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation members broke a 30-year precedent three years ago and passed a resolution supporting the tax. The tax was introduced in the General Assembly in 1958. It failed, as usual, to clear the House committee. But this time by only one vote and some observers said that had the tax bill been passed by the committee, it would have had a good opportunity of passing the Assembly. Ex-Governor Thomas Stanley, although he didn't live up to all of his ...

AUGUST, 1959 SENSING THE NEWS Morals In the Welfare State In 1951, my good friend, Sir Ernest Bann, of London, England, who at the time headed up the Society for Individual Freedom, wrote a pamphlet on the morals of the people in the welfare state. The socialist Labor Government of Great Britain was ten, of course, at the height of its power. Sir Ernest pointed out that in 1910 when the capitalist society, with all the supposed evils ascribed to it by the socialists, held full sway, only one in 3,000 of the population was convicted for a breach of the law; that with the advent of the welfare state the traditional respect of the British for law and order suffered a serious and obvious deterioration, with one of every 96 of the population being convicted in 1948. In 1938, Sir Ernest said, there were 6,250 divorces in England and Wales; by 1947, there were 60,190 divorces. He also pointed out that illegitimacy had increased with similar rapidity "until today one in every ten of the new...
