6 Fleming (Continued from Page I) farm is the danger that government intervention may destroy the ability of the family farm to change with the times, and cause it to lose its natural markets to synthetics which can be more readily produced by corporations. "The family farm cannot make full use of its natural advantages unless it is left free to change with the times, to decide how it can best use its resources, to expand its operations to take advantage of new technology and to accept offfarm work whenever that is advantageous.' Fleming said that government programs to "fix prices or returns on products and to decide who can farm and what he can grow are not the roads to stronger family farms." He said that to penalize efficient operators by restricting their enterprises so that people are encouraged to stay in agriculture —regardless of the opportunity available—is part of "a blueprint for peasantry." He declared: "We consider compensatory or direct production payments to be unsou...

2 The American Way Most of us talk of the American Way, but in general we give little detailed thought to what it is that causes our system of production and distribution to function in a manner that provides for the majority of our citizens, the goods, gadgets and services that would stagger the imagination of people who live outside the United States. Before we accept as sound doctrine the glib prattle of the pseudo-liberals whose policies would lead us straight into the slavery and poverty of totalitarianism, we will do well to take a look at what it is that provides the steam for our much talked of and little understood American Way. Our astounding productivity hinges to a very great extent upon what we call the free market economy. Under this system, consumers who have money to spend are the people who call the tune. They make the decisions. Our largest corporations, often lambasted by the leftwingers, would go broke almost over-night if they failed to recognize this fact. In o...

June, 1960 Rockbridge Farm Bureau Working To Win State Award Again This Year For Top Local Program Last year the Rockbridge county Farm Bureau walked off with the Virginia Farm Bureau award for the top local program in the state and they're off and running again this year at full speed (or better.) In the first five months of this year Rockbridge has compiled an astounding and inspiring list of local accomplishments. Lyle Koogler, president, handed over a list which contained 24 projects and activities and said, "I'm sure I've forgotten some, but when you called me that you were coming by I sat down and wrote these out in a few minutes." Several of their actions concerned the state and national legislatures but many of them concerned purely local matters. For instance the county Farm Bureau requested the Board of Supervisors to oppose county ownership of school busses — accomplished! (A representative of the Farm Bureau has attended all but one meeting of the Supervisors.) The Farm ...

June. 196° Family Farm Fading? Statistics Say Not So It's a popular pastime among some politicians to trumpet a warning that the family farm is being wiped out by the advance 0 f corporation farms, falling prices, unfair competition, the opposition party, or a combination of all these forces. This naturally gives a politician * chance to play his favorite role —that of apparent champion and defender of the people, or more particularly, his defenseless constituents. It's about the same as offering an aspiring actor an opportunity to play Hamlet to a captive audience.

House-Sen. Pass Aid To Education Bill Over Objections Of Virginians The House of Representatives has passed a federal school bill. The measure, adopted on a roll call vote, provides for a four-year program of aid to states for public school classroom construction. The Senate had passed a similar bill earlier. All members of the House and Senate from Virginia voted against the bills. Total cost of the program authorized by the House would be about $1.3 billion. Farmer Will Suffer Most from Trade Restrictions American agriculture has "more to lose than any other segment of our economy" if the U. S. is unable to expand foreign trade, the American Farm Bureau Federation told a Senate Commerce Committee hearing last week. A Farm Bureau spokesman told the Senators U. S. farm exports In fiscal 1959 were equivalent to the production of one out of every eight acres of crop-land in this country. "Numerous discriminatory restrictions against American exports" have been established by foreign n...

June. 1960 Tobacco Buyers Object To Use Of Chemicals in 'Sucker' Control ••Wood burns because it has the proper stuff in it; and a man becomes famous because he has the proper stuff in him." This observation was made many years ago by Johann Geothe, the German philosopher. When I happened upon it the other day I was immediately reminded of the current plight of the tobacco industry—how we have concentrated our efforts on quantity at the sacrifice of quality. Because of improper emphasis, today we find ourselves in the position where our customers are clamouring for "the proper stuff" —namely: flavor, aroma, and good burning qualities. These are the characteristics which have made American-grown flue-cured tobacco famous the world around. We in Tobacco Associates feel strongly that we must succeed in offering our customers—both foreign and domestic—a more uniform and desirable product or else FB Presents Testimony On Farm Labor Bills Several bills now before the Senate Labor Committe...

2 'Anachronistic Battlements?' 'Draw Sabres, Sub!' Draw Sabres! A real gentleman of the Old South is under siege. A battery of Congressmen and several newspapers, including the heralded New York Times have verbally assaulted the House Rules Committee which is chairmaned by Congressman Howard W. Smith of Virginia. Legislation introduced into the House of Representatives must come before the Rules Committee in order to become the business of the House and receive floor consideration. If a bill comes before the Committee which is not thought to be "worthy" the Rules Committee, through various techniques, smoothers the bill to death. For the last several years the Committee has done the country a real service by heading off some of the wild schemes introduced and promoted by the Congressional "liberals." The Committee has been successful this year, for instance, in preventing passage of the far-reaching federal aid to education bill. It has also had a "slowing effect" on other pieces of...

Vol. 90, No. 8 What Farm Bureau Means To Me (Following are excerpts from a speech delivered at the recent American Farm Bureau Institute in Louisville, Kentucky, by Mr. Marshall, Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation president and American Farm Bureau Federation Board member.) FARM BUREAU is an organization whereby farmers have an opportunity to unite to protect their freedom and to elevate their vocation to its proper place in the sunlight of a great nation's economic advancement. It provides honest and moral guidepost fer united effort with full recognition of the general welfare of all people in a great free Christian country as was conceived by our forefathers. It is statesmanship without the tarnish of partisan politics. It has the group fascination of an army, without oppression or destruction. It has the glory of high ideals without Ihe fog of misly, untried theories. It has righteousness without vanity or egotism. It has education without snobbishness or an air of superiority. It ...

2 'Conquerer In Chains' The death knell has been sounded for the U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson. Candidate Nixon has given the Secretary his walking papers in stating that if he is elected president he will name a new secretary from the mid-west. Thus will end one of the stormiest public careers of any official of government in recent history. We do not believe it is blasphemy to compare the career of Mr. Benson with the great missionary apostle Paul. As Paul describes his suffering (II Corinthians 11) of stripes, beatings, stonings, shipwrecks and perilous journeys among robbers, "in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren," so Secretary Benson could present a similar collection of modern persecutions. Not only has he been insulted, humiliated, hooted and booed from coast to coast, last year he was subjected to physical violence at the hands of "egg throwers" in Chicago. All of his ill-treatment has not ...

■I n gust, 1960 How May The Farmer Protect Himself From Over-Use of Chemicals? During the past year, farmers ised several hundred million bounds of over 100 chemicals in several thousand mixtures to control pests on crops. In 1940, Ifarmers had only about half a Idozen important chemicals for use us pesticides. The entire food industry uses In one way or another some 2,500 different chemical substances. When farmers use these chemicals some of them remain on animals, fruits, vegetables, feed crops, or grain crops when they are harvested. These small amounts that may be there are called residues and they may constitute a public health hazard. The ideal pesticide would be one that would be harmful to insects or other pests but not to man. This ideal pesticide has not yet been invented. Bccause *we do not want harmful amounts of chemicals in our food, rules for their safe use are set up in federal and state law. One such rule is the tolei*ance, or the amount of the chemical that can re...

August, 1960 County Leaders At Institute Challenged to Solve Problems Three county Farm Bureau leaders and the Legislative Director of the American Farm Bureau challenged the third annual Virginia Farm Bureau Institute to tackle the problems confronting farmers today on a do-it-yourself basis. John F. Copenhaver, president of the Washington county Farm Bureau, speaking at the final luncheon session, told some 65 ' Mrs. S. D. Tilson county leaders that "We can do about what we want to for the good of mankind." He reminded the group of the hardships of the early settlers and said that they had a goal in mind and were willing to pay the price to obtain it. Mrs. S. D. Tilson, district chairman of the Women's Committee from Fauquier county, said that "We have a challenge today, we must save our freedom." She said the only way to accomplish this is to be doers and not hearers and sitters. Harold Bailey, president of the Buckingham Farm Bureau, said that "We must be prepared to answer the ...
