February-March, 1960 Egg Producers Face Test Low winter egg prices attract attention to the poultry industry. Farmers have been hurt, so have marketing firms. All are struggling to reduce cost and increase efficiency. Virginia egg marketing firms are attacking marketing cost with considerable success. This is necessary to keep our new commerical egg industry in a competitive posture with our sister states. Quality control has become the important marketing tool in the industry. It's important to keep the product merchandising value expressed in price. Here, too, we have made progress. Eighty-four Jr. Baby Beef Shows, Other Events Scheduled In V irginia Over 680 baby beeves. 315 market hogs, 50 market lambs, and 190 purebred heifers have been entered for 16 junior shows to be held in Virginia this spring.

8 Hff - Abbitt Sponsored Tobacco Bill Is Signed A bill to carry out Farm Bureau policy on tobacco price supports has been passed by the Congress and signed into law by the President. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Watkins M. Abbitt of Virginia and received the support of all of the Virginia delegation. The bill provides for price sup- * port for the 1960 crop of tobacco at the 1959 level (provided marketing quotas are approved by pro- ■g ■p Bjte , '"in ini»» mm Rep. Abbitt ducers.) It further provides price support for the 1961 and subsequent crops at a level to be determined by adjusting the support level for the 1959 crop of such kind of tobacco by multiplying such support level for the 1959 crop by the ratio of (a) the average of the index of prices paid by farmers, including wage rates, interest, and taxes . . . for the three calendar years immediately preceding the calendar year in which the marketing year begins for the crop for which the support level is being determined to (...

February-March, 1960 All Sales Tax Bills Killed By House-Senate Groups The General Assembly killed seven bills alluding to an across-the-board retail sales tax. Four of these bill were known as the "Administration" bills. They were two identical measures introduced in the House and Senate calling for a three-percent sales tax and a two-percent sales tax. The fifth bill was the Pope-Manns bill providing for a three-percent sales tax. The two other bills requested that the sales tax issue be put to the people in referendum. Since all of these measures were killed in committee no roll call vote is available to express the sentiment of the majority of members in the Assembly on the question. The strategy of sales tax advocates early in the session was to delay action until the budget had been developed and an accurate statement of needs could be obtained. But the Senate Finance Committee scuttled this strategy by forcing an early hear- Whitehead Observes During the House sales tax heari...

10 HER BROOD GOES ALONG .4.• 0, 60veMM«r / Congress Gets Two Extreme Proposals For Farm Program Two completely different farm program proposals were introduced in the House of Representatives last week. Their introduction on the day immediately following the President's special message on agriculture is evidence that—unless Congress acts rapidly to provide a reasonable solution to the wheat problem—there is trouble ahead. One of the new proposals is a bill (H. R. 10,350) presented by Representative Thomas M. Pelly (R.) of Seattle, Washington. His bill would repeal all price support and adjustment legislation. Existing surplus stocks held by the Commodity Credit Corporation would be donated for domestic and foreign relief programs. Loans or gi ants would be provided for small farmers who would be forced to relocate because of adjustments resulting from the termination of existing programs. THE PELLY BILL received immediate support on the floor of the House from Congressmen representi...

2 What Next in Taxes? As you got ready to send in your form 1040 to beat the April 15 deadline, it probably won't make you any happier to realize that taxes are going up in the year ahead. Skipping the increases that seem sure in many state and local taxes, you already have had a sample increase in your Social Security tax, as the Federal government now collects 3 percent instead of 2.5 percent of everybody's pay up to $4,800. This is an increase of $24 a year for most people. Other proposed Federal tax increases, which don't hurt so much in the withholding, but which you'll end up helping to pay nevertheless, amount to nearly $1 billion. The President proposes to increase gasoline and jet fuel taxes, to put a new tax on cooperatives and to make other tax changes. This billion dollar total does not include proposals to increase postal rates by more than one-half billion dollars. Even if Congress balks on raising these taxes, it probably won't hold back on continuing the Korean War "...

4_ Wheat Program and Others Being Considered by Congress (Continued from Page 1) could eventually lead to the movement of more wheat into export trade. (d) It Seeks a Reduction In the Acreage Available for wheat Production through providing for a substantial expansion of the conservation reserve program. Q. 4. What would be the support price for wheat under Farm Bureau's proposal? Ans. For the first year of the new program the support price for wheat would be less than 120 percent of the support price for corn. Under the present law the support price for corn is set at (a) 90 percent of the national average price received by farmers for corn during the preceding 3 years, or (b) 65 percent of parity, whichever is higher. The 1959 national average support price for com is $1.12 per bushel, which U 90 percent of the average price received by farmers in 1956, 1957 and 1958. The preliminary 1960 support price is $1.06, which is 65 percent of parity. The provision that the support price f...

April. 1960 A Look At Agriculture In 1975 (A. E. Flory, general manager 0 f the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual insurance Co., has written a paper and been speaking on the topic of "Agriculture, 1975." While Mr. Flory warns that his figures a re merely estimates that may be drastically changed by the advent of inflation, recession, war, or significant technical break-throughs In the use of atomic energy on the farm, his facts based on trends ax-e interesting and important. Following are the highlights of his observations and predictions. Editors Note.) Agriculture is going through a period of rapid change. Some call it a technical revolution. The forces behind this revolution are mechanization, rural electrification, scientific knowledge, changing consumer preferences, changing marketing patterns including integration, a desire for a higher living Btandard, increased competition, expanding farm production in foreign countries, and the role of government. But despite tremendous changes o...

It has been the Red expansion technique since the days of Lenin to make a big noise in one part of the world while doing the dirty work in a quiet distant place. It is sound technique. It has worked. The United States now finds itself being encircled by the establishment of Communist strongholds In Central and South America and in the vital Caribbean.

April, 1960 Labor Regulations Hit By Cong. Burr Harrison (Continued from Page 1) the action of the Secretary of Labor in promulgating regulations affecting the conditions under which seasonal labor might be employed in orchards and fields. It is beinp proposed, for example, that no such regulations be permitted without the concurrence of the Secretary of Agriculture. If we are going to go along with the Secretary of Labor to the extent of letting him stick his nose into the matter at all, this limitation, certainly, is the minimum indicated. "In the propaganda campaign urging Federal regulation of seasonal farm labor, we have seen many tear-jerking accounts, prepared by groups having little, if any, association with the problems of getting in a crop. At taxpayers' expense, the Labor Department has reprinted material of this kind and disseminated it in a thinly-disguised lobbying campaign in behalf of a large role for that department in the management of agricultural employment.

2_ Compulsion on the Farm JL The State of California has recently appropriated a sum of money totaling more than the entire budget of the National Safety Council to be used for the purpose of enforcing safety on the farm. This idea sounds almost too ridiculous to be true, but it is true! And why wouldn't it be true? After all, through our negligence or with our approval, government has taken over about one-third of all the money we earn; government is spending for a vast collection of trivia not nearly as important as safety on the farm; government sets prices, controls productions, tells us how much we must pay our workers, and under what conditions we may hire migratory laborers. We've allowed government to build our schools and levy other requirements for kids; care for our aging, build our roads, stock our streams, build giant dams, issue marriage licenses and death certificates, and in fact, have a hand in just about every act we perform on this earth. We've even let government...

May, 1960 Kraffik tor There are many surface differences between a free nation and a socialist nation, but basically only one difference—in a free nation the people take care of their government, while in a socialist nation the government takes care of the people. This socialist nation may not take care of them very well and not in the way they like, but it does take care of them in one way or another whether ihey like it or not—and the people have to accept it because they have surrendered their individual freedom. To judge, therefore, how far a nation has gone into socialism, one only must look to see to what extent the government is doing for the people things they should be doing for themselves. Judged in this light, one does not have to look long to see that the United State has gone far down the socialist road during the last thirty years. Whether we shall repent and retrace our steps to enjoy onoe more the individual freedom which was the basic principle underlying the foundi...

We went back to day-by-day history and studied the developments preceding the take-over in each nation now controlled by the Communist world conspiracy. It was a frightening experience. As we dug out the facts of the astounding expansion of international Communism in its 40 years of existence on the world stage, there quickly appeared a very clear pattern or technique of Communist conquest.
