2 Aii Epitaph For Violent Unionism On July 23, a Franklin County, N. C., jury found eight textile unionists guilty of conspiring to dynamite installations in connection with the bitter Henderson cotton mill strike. By this action, the jury struck a blow against union violence that will be heard across the nation. Among those convicted and sentenced to long prison terms was a leading Southern union official, Boyd E. Peyton, Carolinas Director of the Textile Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO. Another one of the men convicted was an "international" representative of the union. These men will appeal the decision of the North Carolina Court. That is their right. But the action of a North Carolina jury in finding against the unionists indicates the sentiment in a Southern community against union violence. The unionists had been indicted for con- spiring to blow up and burn: (1) The boiler room at the South Henderson Cotton Mill; (2) The principal office building at the same mill; and (3) ...

The American Farm Bureau Fed- eration told the hearing that the Department's proposed regulations affecting farm labor housing, transportation, and wages should not be issued. An AFBF sopkesman cited 10 reasons for opposing the regulations. He said they: "(1) Should not be issued because they are not based upon adequate legislative authorization. "(2) Should not be issued because Congress has specifically refused to grant such authority. "(3) Should not be issued because Congress is presently undertaking a comprehensive study of farm ...

Vol.Jbgr No~ 34th Convention Opens In Roanoke, Nov. 23 Hubbard Presents VFB Views On Needs In Public Education The supreme challenge to public education—a challenge as yet unmet—is to bring about a sound understanding, and with it a proper appreciation of the basic, fundamental, political and economic principles which have been responsible for our fantastic progress as individuals and as a nation, M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) testified this month. He was speaking to the Virginia Commission on Public Education which is taking a broad look at Virginia's educational system with an eye to making any necessary improvements. Education, should provide the individual with the basic tools required to enable him to make his greatest contribution toward the preservation of a free society and to make it possible for him to achieve his full potential-socially, economically and spiritually—as a member of such a society, he said.

2 It May Be Later — Much Later Than You Think It would be difficult indeed to conceive of a Supreme Court decision that could be more generally harmful and socially disruptive than the notorious school decision of 1954. At a time when the United States stands as the last great bastion of freedom—as the world's only hope of escape from the godless human slavery that is Communism, the Court threw a sociological and psychological bombshell. In doing so, it created disunity at a time when our very survival as a nation requires unity—in purpose and in action. In creating an atmosphere of racial misunderstanding, hatred, suspicion and distrust, it played squarely into the hands of those who would destroy us. In sapping the strength of our public school system at a time when we desperately need massive improvements in education, it made a further contribution to the cause of those who would "bury" us. Bad as this may be, there are even worse things chargeable to the present Court. In a ser...

4 AFBF Active in 80 Issues in' 59 Congress The first (1959) session of the Eighty-sixth Congress failed to adopt any important farm price support and adjustment legislation. Biggest achievement of the first session was passage of a relatively effective "labor reform" bill. Efforts of responsible members of Congress to control federal spending were for Farm Bureau's legislative policies by an informed and active membership. In all, the first session of the 86th Congress considered more than 11,700 bills. Farm Bureau was active on more than 80 different Issues and several times that bills were of major concern to the organization. NEXT YAER'S second session will proceed to consider the unfinished business of this year's first session as well as all new bills. Any bill which has been passed by one House, reported by a Committee, or referred to a Committee for action is still a "live" bill and can be considered next year. THIS REPORT covers only the major legislative activities of Farm ...

You might be interested in my trip as recorded in my dairy. I drove to Roanoke to join the group from Blacksburg. Here we are soaring off from New York airport. We are high in the sky—such a wonderful experience to be crossing the ocean by plane the first time. The next morning I pulled the curtain and there before my eyes was the most magnificant sight! It looked like a river of copper and gold, threaded with streaks of amethyst and beyond that a range of mountains capped with snow. This created quite a commotion for the passengers, for everyone rushed to the windows, many with cameras trying to capture this miracle of dawn. Then we realized that it was time to turn our watches up five hours to 8:30 A.M. August 3: Opening Morning: Over thirty countries answered to the roll call at the opening session...

OCTOBER, 1959 SMALL GRAIN SEEDING It is about small grain seeding time in Virginia. Small grain still holds an important part in the state for feed for the increasing livestock numbers. Listed below are some suggestions that are recommended for efficient small grain production. 1. Prepare a good seedbed. Plant small grains in a well-prepared firm seedbed free of clods. A poorly prepared seedbed full of clods often means low yields. A seedbed loose and fluffy means poor stands, poor fall growth and winter killing. 2. Plant on time.

Vol. 19, No. 11 Brinkey Speaks at 34th Convention Opening VH I, WBgjfe;y\V «H { 1 W 4 " - viv Charles B. Shuman Impact of Interstate System on Rural Virginia Presented The advantage* and disadvantages of the Federal Interstate Highway program to rural Virginia have been discussed by the Executive Secretary of tiie Virginia Farm Bureau, at the annual Virginia Highway Users Conference in Lexington. Hubbard said the "maintenance of the political balance of power now held by predominately rural areas is vital to the preservation of the ideals and principles upon which our nation was fpunded. The construction of the Interstate System will likely make a greater contribution toward this objective than any possible combination of factors-past, present or future." The second advantage cited by Hubbard is, industries will be encouraged to re-locate in rural communities because of the flexible, rapid and economical transportation to the countryside, made possible by the Interstate System.

2 Specification Buying By A. G. Moffett, Supervisor Market Expansion Section Division of Markets Larger buyers of farm products are expanding the use of specification buying in their purchase programs. This particularly affects beef, pork, fruits, and processed products. This means that buyers prefer to buy on their own grade standards and in many instances, these buying specifications may or may not be based upon the official United State's grade specifications established by the United States Department of Agriculture. Buyers specifications are established and supervised either by a buyer committee or an individual for large food distributors. Some vest authority in head buyers and interpretation of quality control may be supervised by the field buyers or at the warehouse. There seems to be no uniform procedure between either specifications or enforcement requirements between the various companies buying farm products. This trend toward private grade standards can create many prob...

Vol. tt», No. 12 VFBF Seeks Sales Tax, Increase in Gas Tax Despite the rapid and drastic changes in agriculture referred to by most of the speakers at the 34th annual convention of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) (November 23-25) in Roanoke, farmers lived up to their age old reputations as "conservatives" in policy matters. Farmers representing 82 Virginia counties in the VFBF recited anew their belief in the fundamental principles of the free enterprise system and passed resolutions stating that the emphasis in agriculture needs to be shifted from "production" to "marketing", thus enabling farmers to sell more of their products and gradually eliminate the need for govenment intevention in the maket place. The delegates said in another resolution that they recognize that When the Federal governsubsidies in any field and request any other business, the result is not only increased taxes but also the loss of a certain amount of freedom—"we oppose additional subsidies in any...
