2 Who'd FB Support? Who did Farm Bureau endorse for president? Surely, everyone knows by now that the Virginia and American Farm Bureau Federations refused to endorse either political party, platform or candidate. Farm Bureau representatives present the organization's views to both political party platform drafters and to advisors to the candidates. Virginia Farm Bureau officials met with Mr. Nixon's representative in Danville. Immediately after that meeting rumor had it that Farm Bureau was supporting the Republicans. Virginia Farm Bureau officials met with Mr. Kennedy's representatives some weeks later in Richmond. Again word filtered out that Farm Bureau was supporting the Democrats. After each meeting a release to the press plainly pointed out that Farm Bureau was not supporting either candidate and that the purpose of the meeting was to exchange views that would be helpful to the candidate in his campaigning and to the farmers in the polling place. When the rumor persisted, due...

November, 1960 Cong. Howard Smith Honored by Farm Bureaus In District for 30-Years Service to Nation Congressman Howard W. Smith was honored this month by the Country Farm Bureaus in his district for his outstanding service to the nation. • Few things in my rather long life have touched me more," Judge Smith said when he responded to eulogies by Verbon Kemp, manager of the State Chamber of Commerce, Mrs. S. D. Tilson, chairman of the Virginia Farm Bureau Women's Committee, M. A. Hubbard. executive secretary of the VFBF, and John C. Lynn, legislative director of the American Farm Bureau. Judge Smith continued, "Farmers have got more problems today than a dog has fleas—and one of those is Washington. We've got a lot of people in Washington who want to help the farmer—especially about election time. The trouble is most of them have never had a hand on the plow nor put a milking stool under a cow and they have a lot of impractical suggestions." Judge Smith talked of the Rules Committee ...

6 At Mississippi Convention — Election Didn't Solve Farm Problems, Fleming Declares The election did no solve any of the nation's agricultural problems. Roger Fleming, secretary-treas-urer of the American Farm Bureau Federation, told the annual meeting of the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation at Jackson last Thursday. "What it did was to decide which of the political parties is to have primary responsibility for offering solutions," Mr. Fleming said in asking Mississippi farmers and their families to be wary of any political proposal which appears to offer something for nothing. He asked them to remember that the original concept of the nation s founding fathers was maintenance of strong, independent, and responsible state government. "State and local governments are being seriously threatened," he said, by efforts to transfer more and more power to the central government in Washington." In the field of threatned preemption of states rights, lie pointed particularly to broad propos...

November, 1960 Hanover Marketing Association Succeeding; Eliminating 'Cut-Throat,' Type Of Marketing The emphasis in agriculture is shifting to marketing. A hand full of progressive vegetable farmers In Hanover County, Virginia are pioneering in their field. They have organized a marketing association which has in three years improved their economic situation and made farming a little easier, too. The members say they have moved from a "cut-throat, what'll you give me", type of marketing, to a graded, washed, polished and packaged, "we'll take top dollar," type of marketing. The growers like it, the buyers are very pleased, and the housewife is voting for it through her purchases of locally grown produce. This is the type of triple threat play that will most likely lead to success. Cold economics motivated the growers. They saw a market at their doorsteps in the metropolitan Richmond area with potentially a half-million customers. It offered rich reward if they could capture it. As ...

2 Be There For Christmas "Joe can't be here for Christmas!" You can picture mother standing there, Joe's letter in her hand, in the midst of Christmas preparations. The disappointment is clearly marked on her face, is mirrored in the eyes of dad, finds a reflection in the sad expressions of others. Joe never missed a Christmas before and the disappointment is easy to understand. The annual family gathering won't be the same without his presence. But it could be worse. And chances are it will be worse in many homes here in Virginia and throughout America this Christmas. For December —though traditionally the most festive month of the year—is also one of the most deadly months. In fact, in terms of 100,000,000 vehicle miles driven, the mileage rate hits an all-time high in December. It takes care to drive safely under winter conditions. Winter driving calls forth every bit o fthe driver's attention, all his experience, all his driving know-how. There are some simple rules that may hel...

December, 1960 RECORDS -THE GATEWAY TO PROFITS Summary of remarks by Dr. Hurry M. Love during illustrated discussion at Annual Meeting of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, Richmond, Va., November 28, 1960. Profits in farming are wild game for which the season is always open. Like other prize game, profits can be very cunning and elusive. They frequently hide in the shadow of costs and receipts. Sometimes the color of profits blends so nicely with the economic landscape that they are hard to find. Nevertheless, profits are very fascinating. They have a delightful flavor and contain the nutrients necessary for growth by the business and its owner. As with other wild game, there are fat profits and lean profits— which you get depends largely upon whether you hunt "in season" -liming is very important. Farmers, like most good businessmen, spend much of their time hunting profits—yet many fail to bag the profits they might. Profits are In the bushes but many hunters seem unable to find th...

4_ Major Farm Law Chages Unlikely Changes in major farm laws in 1961 seem unlikely to agricultural economists at VPI. However, they say it is obvious that the new Secretary of Agriculture will have enough authority under present laws to make substantial farm program changes. These changes will likely be mainly in the area of increasing price supports. The secretary could also require acreage retirement as a condition for getting supports. Cross compliance and allotments also could be made applicable. There seems to be little support in most farm states, the economists say, for the proposal by President-elect Kennedy which would guarantee a farm Income based on holding sales of farm products to federally-determined quotas. The new administration Is not expected to make any major changes In the tobacco program, nor in peanut price support activities. Emphasis will continue to be placed, the economists believe, on the export phase of Public Law 480. Under this program, surplus farm com...

December, 1960 VFBF Convention Speaker Fleming Lists Six Decision Areas In Fight For Freedom RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 29—Agriculture has more to lose than any other segment of our economy if the United States is not able to continue— and where possible, expaid—a high level of mutually advantageous international trade, Roger Fleming, secretary-treasurer of the American Farm Bureau Federation, said here tonight. "American agriculture has a tremendous stake in the export market," Fleming told the annual meeting of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. In 1959, he said, the United States exported the equivalent of the production of 41 million acres, or one out of every eight acres of crop land. "If we lose our export markets," he said, "the land, labor, materials and equipment now used to produce for export will be used to increase production for a domestic market that already is oversupplied.'' While there is an urgent need to expand our dollar exports, Fleming said, "there is no less a need...

j Farm Bureau N® rr AFBF Convention Report Few Changes Made In Farm Bureau Policies The two resolutions that experienced long and careful consideration by Ihe Virginia Farm Bureau convention—one on chemicals in argiculture and the other on migratory labor—have been passed by the American Farm Bureau convention. Few changes were made in the American Farm Bureau policies for 1961. Fully 50 percent of the ]45 pages of resolutions dealt with government in one way or another. A large portion of these advocate nnd spell out ways of stopping the growth of federal government and returning more power and responsibility to the state and local governments. The resolutions, for instance, oppose federal aid to education, aid rWe Can Destroy Russia/ Sen.

Jarm Bureau and the "Agricultural Policy For The New Frontier" Already some are charging that Farm Bureau will reject the Kennedy farm program. This charge is premature, ridiculous and motivated by antagonism for Farm Bureau, rather than love and devotion to Sen. Kennedy and the Democratic party. What farm program? Or, which farm program? Although broad guidelines were drawn in the Democratic campaign platform, the Virginia democrats with whom we have talked dismissed these as unimportant. President-elect Kennedy set forth a similar but milder program in a booklet issued before the election titled, "Agricultural Policy for the New Frontier." Parts of this statement agree with Farm Bureau policy, parts disagree. In 1956, Sen. Kennedy, speaking at the American Farm Bureau convention in Miami set forth his views on agricultural matters. His philosophy then was not significantly different from Farm Bureau thinking. This would indicate that there is still at least a possibility that what...

' nuary, 1961 Mrs. Smith at Denver Shuman Lists Ways Farmers May Improve Net Income DENVER, COLORADO, December 12, 1960 —By their vote in the recent election, farmers clearly rejected proposals for increased government intervention and subsidy in agriculture, Charles B. Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, told the organization's 42nd annual convention. "Farmers have now clearly demonstrated that their votes are not for sale to the highest bidder because they know that government price fixing and supply control mean lower, not better, farm income," he said. "This election should end for all timfi the fiction that farmers want more government regultion and price determination in their business. The policies of Farm Bureau have been effectively vindicated as accurately reflecting the thinking of farm people." If used to force prices to artificial levels, proposed nationwide or regional federal marketing agreement and order programs would bring the same results as ...
