December 15, 1942 Farm Labor Lack Eased The War Manpower Commission has announced a program to stabilize employment on dairy, livestock and poultry farms to alleviate a shortage of essential workers, says the Virginia USDA War Board. The commission directed the Selective Service system to request local boards to classify in Group 3-B such workers deferred on grounds of dependency, and to grant occupational deferment to "necessary men" who have no grounds for dependency deferment and for whom replacements are not available. The Army and Navy have been requested to refrain from recruiting essential diary, livestock and poultry workers or producers, or accept them To? voluntary enlistment, or initiate programs to encourage their enlistment in areas of critical shortages of such workers. Other employers, including contractors handling Government work, are to refrain from hiring skilled workers who have been engaged in these types of farming. "Essential" Defined An essential farm is one ...

pecember 15, 1942 How The Parity Formula Operates —A Brief Explanation First Law Passed During 1933 The original definition of the parity principle in the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 declared that it was the policy of Congress, among other things, to "re-establish prices to farmers at a level that will give agricultural commodities a purchasing power with respecet to articles that farmers buy, equivalent to the purchasing power of agricultural commodities in the base period. The base period in the case of all agricultural commodities except tobacco shall be the pre-war period, August, 1909-July, 1914. In the case of tobacco, the base period shall be the post-war period, August, 1919-July, 1929." While this formula has been amended and re-enacted several times since has not been essentially changed except that provision has been made for using August, 1919-July, 1929, as the base period for potatoes and commodities for which satisfactory data are not available for 19091914, a...

January 15, 1943 Responsibilities Stressed By Associated Women Mrs. Mies Is Speaker "You members of the Associated Women of the American Farm Bureau Federation, bear an equal responsibility with your husbands in building a firm foundation for agriculture in national and world affairs," Mrs. Elsie W.

4 O'Neal (Continued from page Two) example, the Federal Government is buying the entire fluid milk supply in New York City at $3.50 a hundred, and then re-selling it to the distributors at $3.10. Loss to the Government on this operation in November was, I am told, in excess of $800,000. It is hard for farmers to understand why the JNew York consumer, at a time when consumer income is at an all-time high, should expect the Federal Government to pay part of his milk bill. If this action by the Government means the beginning of a grand national plan for subsidizing consumers, then farmers should be gravely concerned. If consumers are to be subsidized now, when food is cheap in relation to wages, what about the readadjustment period following the war, when wages may be much lower and unemployment again a problem? Congress was faithfully reflecting the wishes of farmers when it, on two separate occasions during the past year, denied the request of the Administration for substantial appro...

January 15, 1943 Text Of Resolutions Adopted By AFBF Delegates At 1942 Convention THE AMERICAN FARMER AND THE WAR Our Nation, under Divine Guidance, has come through the first year of dread war that threatens the endurance of our freedom and democracy. To preserve our family life, the tradition of our hearthstones, and our right to follow the religious faith of our choice, we have sent the finest of our young manhood from the farms and from the cities to the battlefronts of the world. Powerful and treacherous enemies hve directed attacks against us from the East and from the West. The demand upon American resourse and American strength 'has been great, yet in one year the American farmer and the American people have made the valiant effort. The year has seen our might increase and the tide of victory is turning our way, but only with greater hardship and greater sacrifice can America and her allies achieve the final decisive victory that must be if the door is to be forever closed t...

6 O'Neal (Continued from page Four) have come to realize that unfair monopoly practices constitute a dangerous threat to our system of free enterprise, and are making an honest effort to avoid questionable practices, in order to insure the perpetuation of a system which offers the hope of adequate rewards for initiative, perseverence, thrift and earnest effort. If we are to achieve our greatest potentialities as a Nation, we must protect the mass-production system and preserve the profit motive as a part of the American system ; but industrial policies must be such as to insure that the best interest of the Nation as a whole will be served. Spring May Be Too Late ! Get Your Fertilizer in the Barn Now! \ !» It looks now as though most farmers will be able to get enough fertilizer for next spring's planting. But the only way to be sure you have your fertilizer when you need it is to get it into the barn now. For next spring may see the greatest traffic jam that has ever hit this count...

STARNES VFBF Director of Organization The annual convention and Christmas holidays both coming in December may have called us from the field for the time, but the effectiveness of our work depends upon taking time out for the making of new plans for the new year. The Virginia delegation at the Annual Convention could report a 25 per cent increase in membership over 1941 and a greater desire to go as far as we can toward our established goal of 25,000 members. From the counties I was able to visit in December I found evidence of farm people willing to put in some real work toward building that organization farmers everywhere say we will need when the war is over as we have never needed it before. In Grayson county, the officers and directors I was able to contact the first week in the month reported 10 new members which had joined so recently that they cou...
