2 Virginia's No. 1 Resource The State Soil Conservation Committee has recently issued a report on "Water Resources in Virginia." The report is exceptionally attractive and interesting. It points out that so far as future progress and prosperity is concerned water is probably Virginia's most valuable natural resource. There is much we do not know about our water supply and the Committee has taken the first step toward bringing about the needed work to obtain the information. The report tells in simple, understandable language where our water comes from and how the supply may be preserved. It states that about 97 per cent of the earth's water is in the seas. Another two per cent is in polar ice caps, and only one per cent, or one gallon in each 100 gallons is fresh water, suitable for use by people, plants and animals. The water cycle which purifies the water, the report goes on, has no beginning but it consists of rainfall, which either runs off the land, or penetrates. The second st...

number, 1959 Surplus Crops Chief '60 Issue I How to stem the flood of produci' fjon and accumulation of government surplus stocks will be the | jnain topic of farm policy discusI gions during the next year. Agricultural economists at VPI gay there will be talk of introducing "controls" for livestock and poultry. But, they say, farmers ca n count on very little change from present farm policy in making plans for 1960 production. "A reluctant Congress will drag its feet. Larger farm appropriations will be hard to sell. Smaller farm appropriations mean reducing farm income," the economists say. None of several alternatives to the status quo is easy for Congress to face since each involves either greater appropriations or adjustments painful to their constituents, the economists believe. Adjustments in resource use in line with changing needs involve 'pain.' Eventually adjustments will be made, but they will not be prompt. Dollarwise, the August 31 investment in price support programs b...

December, 1959 Annual Report Exec. Secretary M. A. Hubbard In reviewing some of the highlights for the year, we should in a ny case begin with the organizational department which among other things is responsible for building our strength and influence notonly through the acquisition of new members but also by getting better membership participation in all of Farm Bureau's many interests and activities. We are very happy to report to you a gain of 2,228 additional members over 1958 which gives us a grand total of 21,150 farm family membership now in good standing. Since October 31, however, we have received an additional 300 paid in memberships which as of this moment actually gives us a total of 21,450 now in good standing which is the largest membership total in the history of the organization. We have not experienced a spectacular growth in any year since 1950, but we have had a steady, sound and healthy growth every year. This growth has come about not as a result of fictitious ...

The r y r"i?sarm Bureau New Vol. 'JO, No. 1 Agriculture About $3 Million Short of State Funds Sought The various state agricultural institutions and agencies are still analyzing the Governor's budget requests which has been submitted to the General Assembly, but it appears now that they will be about $3 million short of the funds they requested for the next two years. The State Department of Agriculture, VPI, Extension Service, and Experiment Stations are the agricultural agencies involved. The Department of Agriculture reports that no funds were appropriated for milk inspection. The Department asked for funds to increase the staff and facilities of its pure food law enforcement work, but this was excluded also. YPI did not receive funds for establishing a forestry management school. The Extension service is apparently short some $600,000 of the $6,254,000 asked for maintenance and operation. The Virginia Agricultural Research Station is about $400,000 short of the funds it requeste...

2 Wow—What a Man! Senator Hubert Humphrey, the miracle man from Minnesota, is also a very generous man. He likes to play the part of the Good Samaritan—at no cost to himself—with money forcibly collected from other people. During the last session of Congress he is reported to have sponsored and co-sponsored bills which would have added, within the next five years, a net $35 billion to the backbreaking federal tax burden already being carried on the shoulders of the long-suffering American public. In addition to these, the distinguished Senator attached his name to another long series of bills, the combined cost of which appears to be quite beyond estimate, but which in all probability could have easily added another $35 billion to an already overbloated federal budget. We didn't know that a degree in pharmacy could be obtained without a passing grade in simple arithmetic, but apparently the clever Senator accomplished this, too. Otherwise, how could a man who loves his country willi...

In the Federal budget for 1960, money mentioned for current expenses to benefit farmers is 2.7 billion dollars. Items to be paid from this amount are the losses from price support programs, surplus commodity sale for foreign currency, the soil bank, international wheat agreement, sugar act payments, cost of moving surplus commodities, and administrative expense.

January, 1960 Congressmen Hear Virginia Farm Bureau Board Three Board Members Gte '60 Policies The State Board of Directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation met last month with members of the Virginia Congressional delegation and presented highlights from the organization's 1960 policies. The topics of farm program, inflation, labor, and farm cooperatives were discussed by three members of the Board and Executive Secretary M. A. Hubbard. Director Roy B. Davis, Jr. outlined the Farm Bureau philosophy on the farm program. He said that the fundamental objection of Farm Bureau policy was to create conditions which will make it possible for farmers to earn and get a high per family real income in a manner which will preserve freedom and eliminate government regulation of individual farming operations. Director T. Hume Dixon summarized Farm Bureau policy with regard to the control and use of migratory labor by saying "please stop the Secretary of Labor from accomplishing through the...

2 Quick Henry—The Flit! Last year the Congress passed the National Defense Education Act. This is an "innocent" little bill providing scholarships for worthy pupils and teachers. Now the Congress is about to adopt a measure "granting" the states over $1 billion for the construction of schoolrooms. And so the paralysis of federal domination spreads. Congress has always been empowered by the Constitution to provide for the national defense. But Congress has never had the responsibility of providing for proper facilities or proper courses of study for our school children. But with the linking of the terms "national defense and education" in the bill, the initial wedge has been planted. Now the second step, construction of classrooms. This bill was passed in the Senate, over the objection of both Virginia Senators, by a vote of 5134. What will be the third step and the fourth until finally our schools are controlled from Washington? This is an excellent study in the evisceration of stat...

4 Farm Bureau Successful on 9 Issues in Legislature (Continued from Page 1) dairymen and tobacco growers were not so pleased with this session of the Assembly. Local governments in Virginia are in a tight place. Demands by a growing population for more local services have caused local governmental debt to sky-rocket by over 600 percent in the last few years. These localities were hoping to get some relief in the form of additional revenue. Sales Tax But one-by-one, measures that were introduced to provide such aid were killed by the Assembly. Five sales tax bill which would have returned about $45 million to local governments during the next two years, were killed. Two other bills asking that the sales tax question be put to the people in referendum were likewise killed. Farm Bureau supported the sales tax idea. The measure to allow localities to impose their own sales tax on option of the people—and the bill to allow local governments to impose excise taxes on the bills of local 1 ...

f<>braary-March, 1960 Legislature (Continued from Page 4) roads were mounting, the amount 0 f money available for the work was declining each year due to heavy matching commitments that t l ie state Highway Dept. has with the Federal Government. Farmers generally were supporting a one-cent per gallon increase jn the state gasoline tax, if the money could not be found any other way, the Farm Bureau resolution stated. Since money was almost as scarce with the government this year as it is with us taxpayers—the needed money could not be found any other way. The Assembly passed the penny per gallon increase. C k Dr. William A. Pennington, a member of the House from Buckingham, was chief patron of the bill which permits farmers to apply for their farm-used state gasoline tax every six months, rather than every three months as under present law. The bill was passed by the House 94-0, and by the Senate 36-0. The new law will become effective on June 28. Farm Bureau fa...
