Flake Shaw, executive secretary of the North Carolina Farm Bureau Federation, in an address before a luncheon on March 10 at the annual VFBF convention in Richmond. The luncheon was a part of the organization conference which opened the annual two day session. "We owe it to our sons and the boys on the firing line today to provide a program for agriculture better than we have had during the past 50 years. We must give these boys the things they are fighting for," Mr. Shaw declared. Not only is a strong farm organization needed today...

Hutcheson, director of the Virginia Extension Service, who spoke at the Thursday morning session of the VFBF convention. Throughout 1943, rubber and gasoline will continue scarce and transportation difficulties will increase. The only practical way of overcoming these difficulties is through activity among neighbors in the organization of cooperative truck routes and "share-the-ride" clubs. County agents and other professional workers will help organize such clubs, he said. The already acute farm labor shortage will continue in most sections of the State. There is some chance of slowing down the drafting of farm labor through furnishing full information to selective service boards, but the chief help will come from better farm management and better use of loca...

March 15, 1943 Tobacco Industry Affords Simple, Powerful Story In his talk before the organization conference at the annual meeting of the VFBF, E. J. Knott, president of the Mecklenburg Farm Bureau, gave this story of the tobacco business. It is so brief, so ample, yet so powerful, we are printing the entire story as it relates to the tobacco industry.—The Editor. "I don't know how long tobacco has been in use or grown in this section. I believe history tells us that Sir Walter Raleigh smoked tobacco in his day and time. "It was not until recent years, though, that the growth and manufacture of tobacco got to be such a business. My father, who originally came from North Carolina, that state so famous for the growth of tobacco, said that he was one of the first farmers to begin a fire in a flue cured barn, and begin the curing of tobacco by that process. It was about that time that the growing of tobacco and the manufacture of smoking tobacco and cigarettes developed. "I think you c...

Invest in War Bonds Vo. 3, No. 4. Six New Counties Join Virginia* Federation Farm Scrap Sought In New Drive Virginia farmers are once more being asked to make an intensive search of their farms for vitally important rcrap iron and steel, and the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation at its annual convention last month urged all farmers and especially Farm Bureau members to aid in this campaign. To insure continued production in all war plants, farmers in the State must contribute 87,500 tons of scrap, an average of 1,000 pounds for each of the State's 174,000 farms. The campaign will be run on a national scale, sponsored by the nation's rural press, and the Government has urged that 3,000,000 tons of scrap iron and steel be collected off the farms by July 1. The Virginia Rural Press Scrap Committee will sponsor the collection in this State in cooperation with the State Salvage Committee on all local salvage committees. Robert A.

Current wool business on Summer Street is confined almost entirely to foreign wool. Specifications on government contracts no longer require the exclusive use of domestic wool.

In fact, some manufacturers claim that domestic Fine wool would have to sell for about five to seven cents per grease pound less than the pre...

Invest in War Bonds Vol. 3, No. 5 VFBF Expansion Continues As Dinwiddle Organizes Farm Groups Want Veto Overridden The American Farm Bureau Federation, in a letter to members of the Senate and House, has gone on record as urging Congress to pass the Bankhead bill over the President's veto. Acting with the AFBF were the National Grange, the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, and the National Cooperative Milk Producer's Federation. Text of the letter follows: We urge Congress to pass the Bankhead Bill over the President's veto. At stake is the basic issue of whether we shall have government by law or by executive decree. The amount of money involved is relatively small. The principle involved is fundamental. In the Price Control Act of October 2, 1942, the Congress stipulated that ceilings on farm products should not be set below parity prices to farmers. This provision of the law has been nullified by executive decree. In our opinion it is the duty of the Congress to see that t...
