2 A Poor Product At A High Price In 1956 Great Britain, under socialized medicine, spent $2,800,000 for bottles in which to put "free" medicine and only $75,000 for mental health research. One out of every 100 Britishers (400,000) is employed by the Ministry of Health, 2y 2 clerks for every doctor in the British Isles. After the adoption of socialized medicine, there was a 50% increase in absenteeism with corresponding claims for loss of wages. In 1958, a half million people were on hospital waiting lists. Women in the British Isles are advised to apply 12 months in advance for a bed in a maternity ward. Patients in England are hospitalized three times longer than in the United States. A broken leg heals slowly in a welfare state. General practitioners get $2.80 per patient per year. During a visit of 3 minutes in the doctor's office, the doctor must diagnose your ailment, prescribe a treatment and fill out up to 16 different certificates and forms.

The Virginia Farm Bureau New# . "V" Vft Vol. 31. No. 8 Former VFBF President Dies Horace G. Blalock Mr. Horace G. Blalock, former president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, died recently. He was a native of North Carolina and graduate of Wake Forest College. He had served as a board member or officer for numerous other farm cooperatives and associations. Mr. Blalock was named "Man of the Year" by Progressive Farmer Magazine, for his work with farmers. He was also cited by the Institute of Rux-al Affairs of VPI. See editorial Page 2. Approved Storage Bins Available For Fall Harvest Approved grain- storage for corn for price support is necessary in order that cooperators in the feed grain program may get support prices for their corn. In order that you may, if otherwise eligible, obtain price supports on your corn, it must be stored in storage bins acceptable to the Agricullural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASC) or the USD A.

2 H. G. Blalock H. G. Blalock was a great leader in Virginia agriculture. He was probably best known for his unwincing leadership and support of the tobacco program. But he was not a man who devoted his efforts to any one crop or one segment of agriculture. He operated a successful diversified farming operation and he understood from his personal experience and associations that what one farmer in a specific section of the United States does has a very significant affect on farmers in other parts of this country and even throughout the world. Since he believed this philosophy, he could be found making good contributions wherever agricultural problems were being discussed —be they dairying, apples, potatoes, beef, peanuts, cotton or others. As president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation during the important formative years when this organization was reorganized from scratch, he reflected the confidence, the devotion and the down-to-earth common sense leadership that welded the o...

August. 1961 Looking A head v-r ...by Dr. Gtorgi S. Benson t DIRECTOR —NATIONAL EDUCATION PROS RAM S«arcy, Arkinm Scholars who know Communism have tried to teach us, and largely failed, that the Communists keep a jump ahead in the battle for the world because they play the grim game entirely according to rules of their own making, not according to our rules. We have long known that they read history in their own peculiar way according to the Marxian dialectic, but we have too long refused to face the unpleasant fact that they play at politics without subscribing to the customs, ethics, and morals that are generally observed by the western world. These rules of centuries past are usually not of any use to them in their nefarious schemes. Perhaps it could best be said that there are no rules in this program of world conquest. But the distinctive feature of Communism that we have ignored is that it is an international conspiracy that knows no boundaries, no allegiances to its oft-state...

Glenn Martz, president of the Stafford County Farm Bureau, speaking at the final session to the 120 assembled leaders, said that Communism is the greatest peril that we face, and once we actually face it all other problems fade to insignificance.

6 Farm Bureau Opposes Compulsory Insurance The American Farm Bureau Federation today expressed strong opposition to proposals to raise the social security tax to provide medi- cal care for the aged In a statement prepared for presentation at a House Ways and Means committee hearing John C. Lynn, legislative director, and J. B. Thayn, assistant legislative director, said "farmers* opposition to compulsory health insurance in any of its various forms is of many years duration." They said the proposals made in a bill (H.R. 4222) before the Committee would "transfer to an aire ad y over-centralized, overobligated central government responsibilities that can and should be dealt with in other and better ways." The Farm Bureau spokesmen asserted that financing medical care for the aged through the mechanism of social security would not provide "prepaid insurance in the usual meaning of the term." Instead, they said, "this is a bill to compel workers, employers, and the self-employed to pay...

August, 1961 Sales Service Is Objective Of FB Trade Program Farm Bureau's foreign trade development program is undergoing a change—from a strictly promotional program to one of sales service. The change will put the Farm Bureau Trade Development Corporation in a position where it can more effectively promote the sale of agricultural products in export markets. The Corporation is an affiliate of the American Farm Bureau Federation an dhas offices in Chicago, Illinois, and Rotterdam, Netherlands. THE ROTTERDAM office was established nearly three years ago to promote and develop markets abroad for U. S. farm products and so serve as a Europeanwide listening post for the gathering of trade intelligence and trade opportunities. It has been entirely financed by membership dues from the more than a million and a half member families of Farm Bureau. MOVING into a sales service phase of its operation, the Trade Development Corporation is entering into written agreements whereby its services ...

2 It's Called Free Speech We have a ridiculous situation within this country today which nearly defies comprehension. On the one hand, the American people are being taxed into insolvency to maintain a strong military force with which to fight the Communist military forces. Yet, on the other hand, our pseudo-liberal friends are trying to squelch any and all information pertaining to the tactics and infiltration of the insidious Communist conspiracy. Many of our military and civilian leaders are being pressured to speak very softly against Communism and further, not be too outspoken along patriotic lines. Our men and women are being drafted into the military services to fight if necessary an enemy against whom we are evidently afraid to speak. Some of our leading military leaders have been removed because they dared to inform their troops of the mode of operation of subversion, perversion, sabotage, and espionage used by the Communist adversary. The fainthearted in this country leave ...

September, 1961 Letter To The Editor Dear Sir: I am a new member of the American Farm Federation and I want you to know how pleased I am to be affiliated with such a organization. It was not until I read about the gallant fight one president Charles B. Shuman was waging with Sec. Agriculture Orville Freeman's Socialistic Ominibus farm bill did I really become cognizant of farm organizations as a tool that we might use co-operatively to fight the final take over of agriculture by left wing - political groups. I believe many farmers, like myself are aware that there Is a wide gap in our political philosophy now and that prevalent before the 32** era, but we don't realize how very far these left wing groups have permeated our entire Federal Government, especially our Dept. of State. The tentacles of the Communist octapus were not noticed before, as it stealthily crept into our Federal Government, but as its tentacles reach out to embrace our schools and our agriculture we suddenly beco...

September, 1961 Dairy Farmers Losing Twenty Dollars Per Cow Each Year If the government were to step in tomorrow and levy a $19 to $20 tax on every dairy cow, the reac- tion of the nation's farmers would be justifiably vigorous, vocal and violent. Yet farmers are now being penalized that amount every year by the continuing problem of masbus, and it doesn't seem to shock them a bit. Here are some of the highlights as cited by the American Founda- ' tion for Animal Health: Taking the nation's dairy population as a whole, mastitis is now costing farmers an average of $19.30 per cow. We have a total estimated national loss of $386,650,000, or more than a third of a billion dollars. Some authorities now think that mastitis is the most costly of all diseases of cattle. The Foundation points an accusing finger at three factors in the picture. 1) Perhaps too many farmers have been inclined to "tinker" with mastitis treatments, rather than entering an all-out campaign to eradicate the diseas...

8 AFBF Board Accuses Gov't. Of Depressing Corn Prices CHICAGO, Illinois —Leaders of the nation's largest farm organizations severely criticized Agriculture Secretary Freeman today for his announced intention to dump govern-ment-held surplus corn on the market at a time when farmers are harvesting and selling a near-record crop. The Board of Directors of the American Farm Bureau Federation meeting in Chicago has issued a formal statement charging that heavy government sales from surplus stocks have already hurt corn prices, and that to step up government sales now when corn is ready to be harvested in the field will seriously disrupt and demoralize the whole feed grain market. The Board said that even without competition from government surpluses, corn prices would be under heavy pressure from record high yields and the huge quantity of corn not eligible for price support loans under the administration's new feed grain law. "Producers have long been plagued by seasonally depressed co...
