2_ Here Today, Washington To-Murrow Edward R. Murrow, who among other things is a former CBS radio and television news commentator, has been named to head the U. S. Information Agency. Mr. Murrow may best be remembered for his introduction and promotion of cigarette smoking on television. He may also be remembered for other things. Some will vividly recall a few of his news reports. Morrie Ryskind writes about him, "Murrow began on radio where his superb voice and diction gained him a host of followers; and being highly personable, he made the transition to TV and a greater audience with perfect aplomb. A master of inflection, his famous opening line, 'This is the news,' was always uttered as though he were speaking from Mt. Sinai, and most of the listeners accepted his coloration of the events of the day as authentic gospel." Farmers may well remember him for the two times he cut their intestines out. (A man doesn't easily forget the times he gets his intestines severed.) Once seve...

February, 1961 Economy Will Produce If Allowed Hubbard Tells Insurance Advisors At the current rate of growth, the United States is doubling its man hour productivity every thirty years. If our economy is permitted to function in this fashion, the productive elements in our society can easily take care of those who are less fortunate, according to M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. At this rate of growth, he continued, in 300 years we could be creating wealth 1,000 times faster than at the current rate. But some of the current proposals being considered by the Congress may very easily dry up both the initiative and the source of funds necessary for our economy to move forward, Hubbard stated. Speaking to about 200 members of the Virginia Farm Bureau's service company agency staff, Ilubbard listed three issues which he said were of vital interest to the citizenry. The American public is too optimistic about the overall good that cen be accompli...

February, 1961 Is Progress of Virginia Schools Satisfactory? Do We Need Federal Funds To Meet Our Needs? Federal aid to Education legislation is expected in the U.S. Congress soon. Farm Bureau will oppose it. *The organization has long said in its policies that aid to schools for construction needs or for improving teachers salaries is not a desirable or legitimate function of the federal government. The issue in Farm Bureau circles in Virginia then, has resolved itself into questions of whether progress is being made rapidly enough to meet the needs, and if not are we as taxpayers willing to make more local and state funds available. These questions are not easily answered. Information sources are contradictory and embroiled in a battle of statistics. A large sized volume could be written presenting the various sides, interpretations and ramifications of the statistics. All of this leaves the taxpayer in a quandry as to which opinions to believe. There seem to be no undisputed fact...

6 1959 Census Reports — U.S. Has 1,448,000 Farms Producing Over $5000 Each There are 3,703,642 farms in the continental United States, the Census Bureau reported last week. In releasing a preliminary summary of the 1959 Census of Agriculture for the 48 states, the Bureau said "we have significently fewer, but larger farms." THE TOTAL number of farms was the smallest since 1870. It was 1,079,000 less than in 1954— a. drop of 23 percent. Only a small part of the decrease resulted from a change in the definition of a farm used by the census takers. If the 1959 census had used Ihe same definition as was used in 1954, the decline would have been 874,000. Significantly, . the number of farms selling products worth $2,500 or more in 1959 was almost as large as in 1954. The number of farms selling px-oducts worth $5,000 or more showed a substantial increase over 1954— from 1,290,000 to 1,448,00. The number of farms selling products worth $10,000 or more rose by 36.2 percent to 794,000. This...

' 1960 was a state legislative year an d the Virginia Farm Bureau was successful in getting nine of 14 resolutions enacted into law during the General Assembly. The organization instituted three new programs that may have great value to members when completed. The State Board is investigating the establishment of an accounting service for members, a marketing or bargaining association for selected commodities, and a system of eight advisory committees. 755 Lives Lost on Virginia Highways in 1960; Be Careful FARM BUREAU SAFETY DEPARTMENT Seven hundred and fifty five lives were lost in highway fatalities in Virginia in 1960. This is an improvement over 1959, when eight hundred and fifty were killed. This only begins to tell the tragic story. And these victims were added to the death toll despite the pleadings and warnings of those who try in vain to halt the carnage of highway fatalities. Not only are...

■Vol. 21. No. 3 Gas Tax Increase For Trucks Would Kaise Farm Costs The proposed increased taxes on truckers would tighlen the pricecost squeeze on farmer. The proposal would allow the four-cent per gallon tax on gasoline to remain the same, instead of returning to the three-cents as scheduled on July 1. It would raise ihe diesal fuel tax from four cents per gallon to seven cents; increase laxes on trucks over 26,000 pounds from $1.50 per 1,000 pounds to $5.00 per thousand. It would increase the lax on tires from eight-cents per pound to 10 cents, on inner tubes from ninecents to 10 cents per pound, and on tread rubber from three cents to 10 cents per pound. These increases would double (lie present road tax payments made to the federal government by a typical 5-axle tractor-semi-trailer combination. These increases would of necessity be passed along the users. Transportation costs are a big item in the farmers' cost of production. Thus, the measure is viewed by Farm Bureau as repres...

2 Coalition, Vanished Or Vanquished? In 1960, during the heat of the presidential campaign, many a disgruntled conservative was heard to say, "I don't care who wins . . . one is as bad as the other—and besides the 'conservative coalition' in Congress is going to stop a lot of these liberal ideas." After the vote, a few writers reported that the "conservative coalition" in Congress had been strengthened by the election of several conservative members, replacing men of more liberal stripe. Free enterprisers took heart, breathed a sigh of relief confidently settled back to observe the goings-on in the new Congress. First the liberals moved to "stack" the House Rules Committee with liberals, thus eliminating a conservative control valve which regulated the amount and degree of wild-eyed legislation which reached the floor of the House. It was an all-out, life and death struggle. The liberals won by five votes. All of the Virginia members in Congress voted with the Conservative block exc...

March, 1961 Good Motor Manners Pay Dividends While every violation of a traffic law may not be a breach of good manners, there is no question but that the motorist with good motor maners tends to break fewer traffic rules and regulations. Good motor maners and highway courtesy are based on concern for other drivers as much as on individual responsibility to obey traffic laws. The Mass Marketing Institute makes the point very clear: "There is a highway zone where discourteous driving blends into dangerous driving, where the acts of a motorist ceases, to be merely acts that annoy or exasperate others, and become instead, acts which imperil lives and property. Too many motorists regard courtesy as one of the "frills' of driving, as something to be heeded if their humor is good and they have time for it, but to be disregarded otherwise."

March, 1961 VFBF Has Many Accomplishments in 1960 President's Farm Program Leads to Regimentation, AFBF CHICAGO, ILLlNOlS—President Kennedy's proposed farm program would lead to a regimented agriculture, lower per family net farm income, inefficient farm production. higher prices to consumers, and an increased burden on taxpayers. That appraisal of Kennedy Administration proposals outlined in the President's farm message to Congress was made today by directors of the American Farm Bureau Federation. The Board of the nation's largest general farm organization is holding its regular March meeting here. The organization is a federation of 50 State Farm Bureaus with membership of more than 1,600.000 faim families. AFBF directors also said the proposed farm program is a bid for power to regiment the segments of agriculture that are not now under government controls.

iMarch, 1961 IThe Story of Welfare in Virginia Welfare Cases Reach New High, Over 37,000 Welfare programs in Virginia have come under spirited criticism in recent years. Several years ago—after hearing caustic arguments from both sides—the General Assembly passed legislation opening to the public the rolls containing the names of those on relief. Last year a bill was killed by a committee of the General Assembly which would have made it mandatory for a woman to be sterilized after giving birth to her second illegitimate child. A more moderate bill, allowing a woman voluntary sterilization, is being prepared for the next session of the legislature. Recent increases in welfare monthly payments have provoked new criticisms this year. All of this suggest that many citizens believe some phases of the welfare program are being abused. Col. Richard W. Copeland, director of the Department of Welfare and Institutions in Virginia, views the criticisms in good spirit. With an amazing command o...

2 BEHIND THE MASK.... Ǥ ;**&ry jsgf '' JTtir Pick Butler The Jester Becomes King How do you expect to solve farm problems when you "can't get farmers together?" This bit of logic (?) is being talked around Washington and echoed across the country with increasing frequency. This argument 'doesn't make gense. Anyone who thinks about it for a minute must come to the conclusion that it is utterly ridiculous to suppose that all farmers will EVER "get together." Then what is the game? What are the aims of these people who continually try to stir people up by saying this? What do they mean by "get together?" We are suspicious of anyone who harps on differences and division in preference to pointing out the unity and harmony that exists. We fear that these preachments, if taken seriously by enough people, could lead to a political and economic trap for farmers. This talk could divide and conquer farmers by destroying their traditional organizations. These organizations have bee...

Historic Appomattox Tree Preserved by Virginia 4-Her General Robert E. Lee stood under a tulip poplar tree at Appomattox Courthouse to read his farewell order to the Army of Northern Virginia in April of 1865. This ti*ee, like the AiTny belongs now to the past. Witness to one of history's most tragic finales, survivor of the seasons of a century, the tree was destroyed . in 8 storm in the sprifig of 1960. But its descendants live on—in a small nursery planted by a Montgomery county 4-H club boy, Kirtland Holcomb. Young Holcomb, a student at Blacksburg high school and a member of the Matamoras 4-H club in Montgomery county, collected the seeds from the poplar tree in November of 1959. He Stratified the seed over the winter, sowed them in the spring, and watered them two or three times a week all summer. Now he has around 300 seedlings.

April. 1961 Reusing The News The U.N.: An Unfit Instrument With the coming of a new administration, the country will face pew decisions regarding its involvement with the United Nations. In particular, Congress will be under heavy pressure to channel U. S. foreign aid through U. N. fluencies. This action was sought last year in the Food for Peace gill (S. 1711) introduced by Senator Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn) and co-sponsored by nine Democratic "liberals." One of those ' liberals" was the then Senator John F. Kennedy pf Massachusetts. It is to be hoped that the President will have second thoughts re Warding this most unwise action which he supported while in the Senate. Certainly, it is bad enough to engage in foreign giveaways. Bui far worse is the plan to have these giveways controlled by U.N. officials, many of them from Iron Curtain countries. It would amount to letting communists help decide how the funds of United States taxpayers will be spent. And, of course, the U.. N. offici...
