2 "0 Judgement!.. "O judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason!" Shakespeare Almost every morning paper we pick up carries a headline announcing an additional spending proposal of some sort or a proposal to vastly increase spending on some program already in existence. Almost everyone can dream up ways in which to spend money that would be helpful to someone. This requires little effort. Even a child can do it. It does require a somewhat higher order of intelligence to understand that no matter how good a thing may be, if you can't afford it, you had better leave it alone. A kid will buy a Cadillac in preference to a Volkswagen but his daddy, wisely sizing up his resources, may much prefer the Volks. People of real maturity understand the very simple lesson in economics which someone aptly expressed in this manner, "If your outgo exceeds your income for very long, pretty soon your upkeep is going to be your downfall." The cost of our defense program i...

April, 1962 The Gun (Continued from Page 1) Century German philosopher, Karl von Clausewitz, whose book "On War" he kept open almost constantly on his desk. It should be noted that Lenin wrote a book entitled "On Clausewitz" in which he outlined the ways in which that philosopher's principles should be used to further the spread of communism. Both Hitler's "super-race" theory and Communism's laws of economic determinism, which state that Communism is predestined to hold dominion over the fact of the earth, find their roots in the dialectics of Hegel. Hegel held that history represented a constant transition of world power through power through what he called "The World Spirit" from civilization to civilization. Briefly stated Hegel reasoned that when a civilization came into dominion over the affairs of man and was no longer engaged in the power struggle, it became corrupt by deterioration and developed internal conflicts. A combination of forces thus generated, according to Hegel, ...

April, 1962 C. E. Johnson, Board Member Has Top-Index Bull The fourth annual bull-feeding test was recently completed at Culpeper by the Beef Cattle Improvement Association, according to L. B. Allen, of the animal husbandry department, Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Thirty five Virginia breeders of Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn cattle entered 95 bulls. These bulls had an average daily gain of 2.48 pounds on the 140-day feeding test; they graded choice, says Allen. Such bull-feeding tests take some of the gamble out of buying a bull. This test record is but one of the factors a farmer should consider in selecting a herd sire. The calfhood record of growth is also quite important. Of the BCIA records available, says Allen, the lifetime record is the most important. It includes the calfhood record, which is a strong indication of how good the bull's mother was; and the feedtest record, which shows how he will grow t>n his own, and how he grew between weaning and the feed t...

6 Controls Or Growth? For The American Farmer Two farm program proposals are being considered seriously by farmers, legislators, and others. One is recommended by the Adminiotralion. The other is supported by Farm Bureau. The stated objectives of the two programs are similar. Each is supposed to improve the economic status and net incomes of farm families. The methods proposed for attaining these objectives have little in common. The program, which has been called The Government Food and Farm Control Plan, is based on a belief that a relatively few governnient planners can do a better job of managing agriculture than several million farmers. It would limit both output and markets. Farm Bureau's program is based on the belief that the private competitive Government Food & Farm Control Program entralize basic decision-making power for agriculture in the hands of the federal government. O own land and other factors of production and marketing whenever federal ownership will...

Vol. <22. No. 5 Committees O. K. Farm Control Bills Bill passes House Agriculture Committee by 18-17 vote. Virginia's two members oil the committee split their votes. Abbitt opposed and Jennings supported the substitute bill. The Senate Agriculture Committee passed a substitute bill (S 3225) to replace the original Cochrane-Freeman Bill. The major revisions of the bill include a one-year extension of the "emergency" feed grain program of 1961 and a wheat program based on either the 1962 "emergency plan" or a multiple price plan, with the choice made by wheat farmers in a referendum. The Dairy provisions of the original bill were completely excluded in the substitute bill. However, Ihe lalest reports in Washington tre that efforts will be made on the Senate floor to substittue much of the Cochrane-Freeman Bill for the Committee's bill. By a one-vote margin, the administration finally got its farm control bill out of the House Agriculture Committee. The Committee approved t...

2 You Make The Choice A man knocks at your door, introduces himself as Mr. Phil Anthropist, hands you his card, announces that he is running for Congress and asks that you and your wife support him in his campaign for election. You inquire about his platform and he replies as follows: "Mr. and Mrs. Jones, you are an average family with an average income. As such 331/3% of your income goes, in one way or another, to the tax collector —federal, state or local. That means that you work for the tax collector a total of four months out of each year. But, in my opinion, you and your wife don't have sense enough to spend to your own best advantage the income which you earn in the remaining eight months! Therefore, if I'm elected to Congress I'm going to vote to increase your present taxes in order to provide for you the things that your family really need—not the things that in your mistaken judgment you think you really ought to have. You see," Mr. Phil Antropist said, "when they cross th...

May, 1962 350 th Anniversary Of Tobacco 1612-1962 The speakers at the recent celebration of the 350 anniversary of the first commercial tobacco crop grown in America attributed Democracy's success to tobacco. All of the speakers attributed the survival of the colony and in turn Democracy to the growth and export of the "weed" tobacco. Governor AJbertis Harrison paid high tribute to Captain John Rolfe and his wife Pocahontas for saving (he colony. The Governor noted that through Rolfe's perseverance and ingenuity in adapting Spanish tobacco seed to the soil of Virginia he produced a tobacco that was highly acceptable to England and the Continent. The first shipment of this variety of tobacco was sent to England in 1612 and from that time on England has been importing large quantities of Virginia tobacco. The first shipment of tobacco In 1612 was the beginning of America's international trade—a trade that is of the greatest importance today to tobacco and all segments of American Agri...

May, 1962 The Sin of Jesse Stalker Syracuse Herald-Journal When it comes to making bureaucratic, autocratic and undemocratic decisions denying constitutional rights to American citizens the U. S. Department of Agriculture acknowledges no superior. It is a difficult task to write about the way the agricultural and its pseudo farm expert secretary, Orville L. Freeman, have treated Jesse R. Stalker of Ravena, N.Y., a dairy farmer, and still have the proper comment go through the mail. Mr. Stalker, a produced-dealer dairyman who milks a herd of 175 cows and sells his product to retail customers, has been fined $20,899.90 for purchasing cream to augment his own supply in 20quart cans instead of two-quart containers. There is no claim that Mr. Stalker peddled inferior cream or that it was not processed under proper regulations. His unforgivable sin was that on three occasions when he did not have quite enough of his own cream to supply his customers he purchased cream from a dairy and too...

2 In God We Trust Resolution of the VFBF Board of Directors The incorporation of Judeo-Christian principles into the basic documents under which we came into being as a nation of free people and by which we are governed, was the most progressive, far-reaching and constructive action ever taken in the devising and creation of the institutions by which men have been governed since the beginning of time. Our firm insistence upon adherence to these principles in both governmental and non-governmental affairs has brought untold benefits and blessings to believers and non-believers, irrespective of race, color, creed or religious affiliations. The application of Judeo-Christian principles stands as an ever present and the only effective bulwark in protecting the rights of minorities against the will of majorities. If we are to preserve these principles, perpetuate the progress and preserve the freedoms that stem from our beliefs and adherence to the Judeo-Christian philosophy, we must uti...

June, 196% Health Care For The Aged Q. What is the Real Issue? A. The issue is not health care for the aged. Everyone agrees that all of our elderly should receive all the health care they need, when they need it. The issue is how health care for our aged can best be provided . . . whether the program should be voluntary or compulsory. Q. Will Voluntary Programs Work? A. Yes. And the voluntary way is available now. It combines voluntary health insurance for those able to purchase it and the KerrMills Law for helping those who need help in paying for medical care. Q. Can the Aged Get Health Insurance? A. Hundreds of health insurance policies and Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans are available to all aged everywhere. More than 9,000,000, or 53%, of the aged already have protected themselves against the cost of unexpected illness and accidents through health insurance. The number has tripled in the last 10 years. And the aged are buying health insurance at a faster rate than any other a...
