Vol. £1. No. 5 New Farm Bill Denounced Statement on Farm Bills American Farm Bureau (Following are excerpts of the American Farm Bureau statement before the House Agriculture Committee, on April 28, concerning the farm bill. Our philosophy with respect to government programs for agriculture is summarized in the following extracts from the policy resolutions adopted by the elected voting delegates from member State organizations at our most recent annual meeting (December, I960). "Recognizing the need to determine the appropriate role of the national government in agriculture, we should establish a yardstick by which proposed government policies for agriculture can be measured. Government programs for agriculture should: Aid farmers in solving their own problems. Promote efficiency in farming. Be consistent with the law of supply and demand. Provide economic opportunity for farm people. Preserve the competitive principle. Insure ample research. Stimulate market expansion. Insure our ...

There is no provision for producers of any commodity to take the initiative in securing the appointment of a "national farmer advisory committee." The determination of need is left exclusively to the Secretary. Nomination Of Committee Members Nominees for service on each advisory committee "shall be elected by members of the county (Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation) committees." The Committeemen would nominate at least three farmers for each position to be filled. Each nominee would be required to get 60 percent of his gross income from farming, and the commodity involved would have to be a "significant part of his total farming operation." The Secretary "shall provide by regulation for the manner" in which such nominees are chosen by the ASC Committeemen. "His determination of the eligibility of any nominee . . . shall be final."

I Mav, 1961 Shuman Presents AFBF Farm Statement (Continued from Page 1) , . . Restrict voting eligibility by granting exemptions and estabing non-commercial areas; , . . Support prices through loans, purchases and direct payments at any level from 0 to 90 percent of parity; . . . Limit the amount of payments that may be to any individual producer; . . . Provide for the transfer of marketing quotas by sale or other means; and . . . Establish conditions of eligibility for price support. It is proposed that these sweeping powers be given to the Secretary without any limits on the costs that may be incurred; and without any assurance that resources forced out of the production of controlled commodities will not be diverted to the production of other commodities. Let us look at some of the implications of these broad powers. A high percentage of American agriculture always has been free of government control and price support programs. These products, on the average, have fared the best....

4_ Farm Bill Freezes Opportunity In Virginia For a proper appreciation of the county agricultural statistics listed below, one needs first to read Dr. Bishop's article "The Changing South—• Problem or Opportunity" published in this issue of the News. "The average net income per farm family in the South in 1959", says Dr. Bishop, "was $2,036 compared with $2,984 for families in the non-South." If adopted, the hidden cross-compliance features of the Freeman-Cochrane proposal, H.R. 6400 and S. 1643, would effectively freeze southern farmers into a second-class economic position with average net incomes only about two-thirds as large as the incomes of farmers outside the south. The following chart, giving selected statistics for selected Virginia counties in various sections, illustrates how farmers adjust their farming program when left free to make their own choices. In the case of Flue-cured tobacco, Burley tobacco and peanuts, the reduction in acreage allotments has been affected in...

May, 1961 Problem or Opportunity (Continued from Page 4) tion's farm families live in the South. These farm people sell only 27 percent of the nation's farm products. The average net income per farm family in the South in 1959 was only $2,036 compared with $2,984 for farm families in the non-South. Between 1950 and 1959, net income per farm family in the South increased 16 per cent compared with a decrease of 4 per cent for farm families in the rest of the nation. Some progress also has been made, therefore, in closing the gap in incomes of farm families. Southern agriculture is not homogeneous, however, and changes that have taken place in some areas are much more pronounced than they are for the South as a whole. In some areas, little or no progress -has been made. In other areas, where one-crop farming formerly was typical, peaches now blossom, cattle graze, hens cackle, and hogs bask in their parlors. New processing plants have been established throughout the South for processin...

6 Shuman Presents Farm Bureau Analysis of Farm Bill (Continued from Page 3) keep legislation from coming to the floor are well-known. In the case of wheat—the commodity which is in the greatest difficulty as a result of past government programs—Title I would authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to set the pattern for the future by writing a 1962 program without consultation with the Congress. The Secretary could use this authority to dump surplus wheat into the feed grain market to depress market prices in an attempt to force producers of feed grains and all livestock products into control programs. The possibility that this would be done is supported by provisions of the bill which refer to feed wheat and by the fact that a hand-picked advisory group has already recommended adoption of the 3-price, certificate plan for wheat. A government managed procedure for developing farm programs on a commodity-by-commodity basis Is not, and cannot be, a satisfactory substitute for the devel...

Vol. "21. No. 6 w Value of Local' Agriculture Is Being Promoted By County FB"s Most county Farm Bureaus in Virginia have set out to emphasize the value of local agriculture in the economy of the county. This is a part of a special emphasis program "being spearheaded by the Virginia Farm Bureau for 1961. The program was kicked off at » series of district meetings at which 63 persons from 37 coun- ties were in attendance. In a kit of materials which were distributed, copies of the latest census repoit for each county were enclosed, along with other information concerning the value of local and state agriculture in Virginia. The special emphasis is being promoted among county Farm Bureaus in the form of a contest. Counties have been divided into three categories on the basis of membership and a prize is being offered for each category. Counties will receive points for four activities under the contest rules.

2 Too Much Power Farmers in general approve of Secretary Freeman's desire to "do something" to improve farm income, and so do we. Certainly it needs improving. But we don't believe they will approve giving the Secretary anywhere near the power the Kennedy Omnibus Bill would hand him, once they really see what's proposed. Maybe this Secretary wouldn't abuse the power. He might or he mightn't. But he could. The temptation would be great. And we don't believe it is either sound or safe to pass a law that depends on any one man's personal inclinations. The issue is whether farmers of this country are ready to put their future largely in the hands of the Secretary erf Argiculture as this bill certainly would. "But look," says the Administration, "(a) farmers would write their own programs, (b) Congress could veto anything undesirable, (c) and farmers would have to OK any plan in a referendum." Well, let's take a closer look. a. "Farmers would write their own programs." They might initiat...

June, 1961 The Issue; "Who Shall Speak For Farmers" By Roger Fleming One of the liveliest topics of conversation in Washington these days is "Who Shall Speak For Farmers?" It is not a new question. Farmers have been concerned about it for years. It is good that others are becoming interested— for it is a question not only important to farmers but to the future of our Republic as well. In order to get this subject in perspective, I believe there is merit in reviewing some history well known to several of you—but probably little known to many Farm Bureau members, especially in those states not directly involved at the time. Let us start this review with an incident that took place in 1934 at Cedar Rapids, lowa. On that occasion a representative of the U. S. Department of Agriculture outlined to a small group of individuals at an off-the-record meeting some of the thinking in Washington regarding "things to come." He discussed "The New Democracy." And what was this "New Democracy?" So ...

4 The Power of The President: Can Federal Funds Be Stopped By Law? Under existing rulings by the Supreme Court, the President of the United Slates now has the power to withhold federa! funds from agricultural colleges, vocational education programs, school lunch program, and school construction programs if he determines under certain conditions these programs are discriminating against a person on the basis of race. This interpretation has been made by a member of the law staff of the Library of Congress Legislative Reference Service. A 13-page interpretation has been made on the subject of "The Power of the President To Withhold Federal Funds From Educational Institutions Which Discriminate Among Students on Grounds of Race." The report says, "In the School Segregation Cases and in subsequent opinions the Supreme Court has enumerated several principles which must be taken into account in measuring the power of the President, without further legislation. to withhold Federal funds fr...

It soon became clear to many people—including some of those who participated most actively in it—that , their recommendations covered the whole gamut of farm policy and related to practically every field of activity which the independent farm organizations were created to serve. It is worthy of note that several of the land grant colleges got "roped in" on this one. The next significant development in this respect was the Brannan Plan itself—and particularly the propaganda campaign waged in 1949 and 1950 to try to "put it over." You know the lengths to which government agencies were used to try to discredit Farm Bureau because its policies were in opposition to Secretary Brannan's proposals. Farmers were told that the Farm Bureau was the one major obstacle to passage of this "new plan." I presume that was —and is—correct! The next ...

Vol. 'ST. No. 7 VFBF Membership Change Offered By State Boartl The State Board of Directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has offered a change in the by-laws for x consideration by the county Farm Bureaus at the November slate convention. The change would create two categories of members in the Farm Bureau, one for "associate members" for non-farmers, and the second for "bona fide" farmers The Board emphasized that it is not the intent of the proposed amendment to "open up" the membership but rather to obtain conlrol of a situation that already exists. This situation, the Board stated, is that a few counties have quite a number of members who are not bona fide farmers, but who are rural residents interested in or dependent upon agriculture in various ways. A committee of the Board has been sludying this matter for quile some time President T. T. Curtis, stated, and it is the opinion of this eommittee that we should recognize this problem and take corrective action before it...
