August, 1960 Rising Costs Are Farm Income Villain Steadily rising production costs are the real trouble makers in the farm income picture. This fact becomes increasingly clear in any consideration of income trends. Despite some ups and downs, gross income from farming has remained relatively high. However, climbing production expenses have been squeezing net income. Total gross income has gone up 52.5 billion since 1947, the all-time high in realized net income. But production expenses in that same period have increased $8.9 billion, and realized net farm income from farming has gone down more than $6 billion. Inflation has contributed to farmers' increasing production costs. As the chart on this page shows, the things that cost farmers a total of $26 billion In 1959 would have cost only $10 Va billion at 1939 prices. A good deal of this increase is inflation. Inflation has boosted the cost of things farmers buy far more than prices of the products farmers sell. One of the reasons f...

The sivi«3« civ, Virginia Farm [Silicon iwws Vol. 20, No. 9 State Board Meets Farm Management Service For Members Being Investigated The State Board of Directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau has appointed a committee to work with staff members in Investigating ihe possibility of starting a new farm management advisory service for members only. M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary, reported to the Board that upon preliminary investigation there seems to be ample evidence that a sufficient number of our farmers would support the development of a department of farm management in Farm Bureau. The farm management service would aid members in keeping adequate records in order to operate their farms more efficiently. Hubbard quoted Dr. H. L. Dunton of VPI in saying, "The time has come for us to stop giving so much time to obtaining the highest yield per acre. We should concern ourselves now with trying to get the high- est returns per acre." Hubbard recommended that the Board appoint a commit...

2 How Old Is Old Enough How old should a man be before he is moved into a top executive position? And, how old should he be when he is retired from this responsibility? The answers to these questions vary from company to company. It seems that there is no set rule which is generally accepted by industry. Individuals differ greatly in judgment alertness, agressiveness, etc. at all ages, consequently we find different management practices being practiced by industry. Most industries, however, retire their top executives at least by age 65 and it appears that the emphasis is on earlier retirement. The age controversy has been brought to public attention again this year through the presidential campaign. Both candidates are in their forties, Nixon, 48, and Kennedy, 43. A great deal has been said about the youthfulness of the candidates in comparsion with past candidates and presidents. On the basis of the past ages of presidents, it it debatable whether age is significant or not. Dvvigh...

September, 1960 Farmers May Now Use Heptachlor A new one-shot control for alfala weevils by going after the adult weevils in the fall instead of the weevil grubs in spring has resulted in the limited release of granulated heptachlor and fertili7er heptachlor mixtures for alfalfa treatment. Research at North Carolina State, endorsed by Virginia Polytechnic Institute, indicates that three-quarters to one pound of actual heptachlor to the acre, applied after the last cutting but not after October 15, will give control for a year "without running the risk of heptachlor residues showing up in a farmer's milk. Based on the VPI recommendation, the Virginia State Department of Agriculture has released two and one-half per cent granulated heptachlor and six fertilizer-hep-lachlor mixtures to be applied on or before the October 15 cut-off date. The Department cancelled all manufacturer registrations of heptachlor and its fertilizer mixtures for alfalfa March 10, 1960 after the Federal Food an...

Kpptember, 1960 How It Could Be Under Federal School Law (By Robert E. Wilson, associate professor of educational administration, Temple University, Philadelphia.) During the current rage over the advisability of Federal aid to education there has been overlooked its potential for simplifying the problems of administering public schools. Assuming that the Federal Government shares the major burden of financing schools in the future, and also shares the concomitant responsibility for operating the schools, by the year A.D. 2000 a superintendent of schools could handle these common administrative problems in the simplified manner in the following manner: Parent; I want fny child's teacher changed. Superintendent: I only work here; see your Senator. Citizen: My school taxes are too high. Superintendent: See your Congressman; finance bills originate in the lower House. Teacher: Our artithmetic books are worn out; can we order new ones? Superintendent: This is election year; no additiona...

September, 1960 By Indiana President— Farm Bureau's Role In Campaign Is Discussed There is a role which Farm Bureau must play in a political campaign, according to George Doup, president of the Indiana FB. Writing in The Hoosier Farmer for August, Mr. Doup says, "if we are to continue to be effective in influencing legislation, we must tell candidates what Farm Bureau members think, and we must tell members what candidates think. "THIS IS NOT a 'do-nothing' approach; neither is it an outright endorsement act. It is an exchange of ideas and information that should be helpful to both the candiate in his campaign and the Farm Bureau member in the polling place." The Indiana Farm Bureau president says that there are two "extreme" roles which the farm organization could play. IT COULD be silent and inactive, he says, with its officials daring not to be seen talking to a candidate of either party for fear members will interpret a conversation as an endorsement of the person or party. Or, ...

2 'Essays on Liberty' Almost exactly one year ago we loaned a book from the Farm Bureau library to an unusually intelligent member of the General Assembly of Virginia. We got the book back this week with the following note attached: "I appreciate so very much the use of your book and apologize for not returning it sooner. Because I enjoyed it so often it is with great reluctance that I return it. Will you be kind enough to furnish me with titles and publishers of this and the other publications you spoke of in order that I might order them?" The name of the book is "Essays on Liberty, Volume IV", published by the Foundation for Economic Education, Irvington-on-Hudson, New York, price $2.50. In our opinion, every citizen should have in his possession a copy of this book. Is it in your library? You couldn't make a better investment.

4_ Republican Party Farm Platform Americans are the best-fed and the best-clothed people in the world. Our challenge fortunately is one of dealing with abundance, not overcoming shortage. The fullness of our fields, forests and grazing lands is an important advantage in our struggle against worldwide tyranny and our crusade against poverty. Our farmers have provided us with a powerful weapon in the ideological economic struggle in which we are now engaged. Yet, far too many of our farm families, the source of this strength, have not received a fair return for their labors. For too long, Democratic-controlled Congresses have stalemated progress by clinging to obsolete programs conceived for different times and different problems. Promises of specific levels of price support or a single type of program for all agriculture are cruel deceptions based upon the pessimistic pretense that only with rigid controls can farm families be aided. The Republican Party will provide within the frame...

Lvtober, 1960 WHAT GOOD \S*'SSCUR/ry*> WHIN IT LACKS FREEDOM AND OPPORTUNITY? H I^aki ALL TAKEN CARE 0F.... 'F«rm Problem' Is Really Complex Series of Problems Many people view the billions of dollars worth of agricultural surpluses held by the Commodity Credit Corporation as the "farm problem." But this is only a sympton of the need for adjustment. The basis of the farm problem is a persistent capacity to over-produce. In combination with this is the rising cost of production and the resulting lower real income to many farmers. Currently it is estimated that production exceeds demand by 6-8 per cent. There are indications that the disparity between supply and demand will become even greater in the 1960'5. There is little likelihood that the domestic demand for agricultural products will change much in the near future. The only substantial increase in food consumption will come from the growth in population. Farmers are continually bettering their production methods by su...

6 Farmers' Bargaining Association Could End 'What Will You Give Me?' Marketing Practice Farmers have the reputation of being rugged Individualists. This individualism makes it difficult for them to "get together" and pull in the same direction for their own welfare. But farmers do agree on many of their grievances. They agree that farming is a hazardous business — that if the weather doesn't get you the insects or diseases will and that if you're lucky enough to escape all of these then you find yourself at the mercy of the buyer of your products. Farmers agree too that most buyers, if Board Action (Continued from Page 1) currently attempting to get support from Farm Bureau organizations in Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania in establishing a bargaining association for processed tomatoes, Curtis explained.
