8,000 Members For Virginia In 1941 Vol. I. No. 4. Vote On General Assembly Members Approaches "Of All Sad Words—" Between now and August 5, every Farm Bureau member might profitably ask those who aspire to represent him in the 1942 General Assembly these two questions: . 1. Would you trust and permit the voters of the State to express themselves on the question of safeguarding the motor license and gas tax funds for use only for building, maintaining, and policing roads? 2. Do you favor encouraging farmers to help themselves toward a parity position through co-operatives which they own and control, and will you undertake to see that the laws of the State in no way hamper or retard their efforts in this direction? If you ask these questions now and get a favorable answer, you can be pretty sure that candidate will be conversant with and sympathetic to other legislation affecting farm people. If you wait until January, 1942, to ask those questions it will be too late. "Of all sad word...

May 15, 1941. News of The Associated Women Mrs. Smith Urges Women to Unite "In unity there is strength. Let us, the women, the homemakers and mothers in this great Valley of Virginia, bind ourselves together for a better, a more decent citizenship, and let us see that only sound principles can live among us," Mrs. C. V. Smith urged in a talk before the April meeting of the Associated Women of the Rockingham Farm Bureau. She declared, "Democracy begins with you and with me. The foundation is the individual initiative and responsibility to one's family, one's work, one's community and one's nation. . . . "First, let us give our youth, our men, our women, faith in themselves, in country, in government, in God. A faith that will burn deep enough to hold us together. "Second, be active in local and national affairs. Help put political bosses who have no place in democracy down. Know your local conditions.

Sheep numbers in Virginia were estimated at 379,000 on January 1 of this year. The census of agriculture for 1940 just released reports 355,173 for April 1, 1940. Sheep numbers in the United States were 55,800,000 as of January 1, 1941, an increase of 2 per cent over 1940. Shorn wool produced in the United States totaled 387,763,000 pounds in 1940.

May 15, 1941. Smith Relates Co-op Growth By C. V. SMITH Manager, Rockingham Co-Operatiive Farm Bureau One very warm day in June, 1924, Mr. John T. Mi 11 e r of Bridgewater, drove up to the Rockingham Co-Opera ti v e Farm Bureau warehouse, located on the Chesapeake Western Drive, Harrisonburg, with hay ladders on his wagon piled high with bulging bags of wool which belonged to him and a number of his neighbors. This wool became a part of the first Rockingham Farm Bureau wool pool. While Mr. Miller passed on to his Heavenly reward a number of years ago, the wool pool, that he and his good neighbors and other faithful Farm Bureau members in the County helped to establish, lives on and has become the principal factor in setting the price paid for wool in the County. The first year the quantity of wool pooled was only about 4,000 pounds and since then the quantity has increased to as much as 82,000 pounds in the peak year. We have members who have sold their wool through the Farm Bureau ...

6 Road Funds (Continued from Page One) of eight to seven. The day after the Resolution was reported, March 7, it was debated for about two hours in the House, most of the members expressing opposition. The effect of letters from home in favor of the amendment was minimized by the contention that they were artificially inspired by "interests". The "interests" were not specified. Many of the city newspapers opposed the resolution in their editorial columns. VFBF Resolutions Resolutions passed by the voting delegates at the last three annual conventions of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation give the position of the Farm Bureau on this matter and something of the reasons for that position. The resolutions are as follows: 1939 —Resolution 111. Diversion of Highway Funds— Whereas, the development and maintenance of our highways system is financed through the gas and motor vehicle license taxes, Whereas, the farmer must depend upon the highways almost exclusively for means of transporting...

Special Wool Growers Edition Vol. I. No. 5. K. A's Kolumn By The General Manager The announcement of the probable grease wool requirements of the government in the next year should stimulate the demand greatly, and apparently our sales date of the 27th should prove satisfactory. Since becoming Manager I have had the opportunity to visit many wool growers and have talked to several wool grower groups in various sections of our territory and I am well pleased with the fine sentiment growers display toward their organization and their determination to build it into one of the best in the country. I believe we have here in Virginia and Maryland one of the finest co-operative marketing setups existing anywhere, co-operat-ing with the National Wool Marketing Corporation. Its accomplishments over a short period of eleven years is something we can be justly proud of. Its progress during the most difficult times this country has even seen is astounding. It has during this short span of life ...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled To Parity Vol. 1. No. 6 Farmer Interests Are Severely Attacked Rural Areas Seek To Guard Road Funds Virginia farmers are greatly interested in all legislation that affects roads and the cost of transportation since they must pay the costs of transporting their products to markets and bringing supplies to their farms. The farmers of the Commonwealth have long waged a fight for an amendment to the State Constitution which would prohibit th<; diversion of road funds for other uses. Again in the 1942 General Assembly they will seek the passage of a resolution which will enable the voters of Virginia to decide if a constitutional amendment should be adopted. Other planks in the Conference Board legislative program call for consolidation highway systems, a discretionary emergency fund of $2,000,000 annually for the highways, highway motor reciprocity with other states and no restrictions or barriers which would increase the cost of transportation o...

4 Mewd. of the UNITED WOOL GROWERS ASSOCIATION "Qood Wool Htulck Qood Will" JOHN Ch H „rS P vr dent WILL H -L"Sn. V yr PreSident W " L " * A " fj-' S. MasJzet JletteA, The highlight of the fleece wool market perhaps was the ? ir ? mia P° ol of three-quarters of a million pounds by the National, at 51.17 cents, f.0.b., shipping point, Virginia. These wools are usually very light-shrinking. Ohio, Michigan and Indiana are quoted at 47 cents, but not moving readily at this figure. Many fleece wool operators have withdrawn from the field after finding that they can spend money pretty rapidly by paying 42 cents to the grower. The distinctly unfavorable war news has retarded activity in the wool market so far as sale for future delivery is concerned. Textile machinery, however, is still running maximum hours. Combing space is at a premium and the amount of top business booked is limited because of insufficient combing space. Spot tops still command a premium, as illustrated by a recent sal...

June 15, 1941 Shore Raises Fine Wool By Charles I. Boyle The Eastern Shore of Maryland can not be called a sheep country, but still we must have our sheep as one of our many and varied farm products. I doubt that there is another section in the United States that grows successfully such a variety of farm products as does the Delmarvia Peninsula. This peninsula gets its name from three states, and is comprised of nine counties from Maryland, three from Delaware, and two from Virginia. It lies between the Chesapeake Bay on the west and the Atlantic Ocean on the east, about seventy miles wide at the Pennsylvania border and extends to Cape Charles over two hundred miles to the south. A nice level loam soil without stone or rock to interfere with tillage. Farms in the northern four counties of the shore are of larger acreage, and well fenced in fields, so lend themselves to raising grain, sheep, hogs, dairy cattle, and other live stock. Farther down the shore, the soil is a trifle more s...

6 Augusta Farm Bureau Opens Frozen Food Locker Plant Plant Termed Most Modern A refrigerated locker plant, the most modern in the East, was opened at Staunton on June 4 to afford both city and country housewives lockers in which they may keep vegetables and meats and serve them as fresh and in as good condition as they were when picked or slaughtered as long as a year before. The new $26,000 ultra-modern locker plant was erected by the Augusta Co-operative Farm Bureau on Route 250, a mile and a half east of Staunton. A total of 314 lockers have been installed, and the plant has a capacity for twice this number. More lockers will be added as the demand increases. Housewives using the locker plant, and they may be Farm Bureau members or not, and may live in either city or county, will rent lockers from $8 to $12 per year, the sizes varying from 5.6 cubic feet to 7.5 cubic feet. They will then pick and slaughter, or buy, their vegetables, fruits and meats, take these to the locker plan...

June 15, 1941 Farm Leaders Thoughout State Endorse Board's Program Farm leaders from throughout the State have endorsed the 1942 legislative program of the Agricultural Conference Board of Virginia. Here are some of the endorsements: "l wish to take this opportunity to endorse the legislative program of the Board, especially as it relates to the COOPERATIVE MARKETING ACT. "As I understand it this Act was designed to give agriculture what is rightfully its due, the opportunity of buying and selling on something that approaches an equal footing with business and industry, but it seems that a majority of our Virginia legislators are determined to hamstring the Act so that its usefulness is practically nullified. If they succeed, then agriculture will have lost its most efficient means of competing with business and industry for its just share of the nation's income." R. E. Hodsen, President Nansemond Co-operative Dairy "The farmer is not the only class of people who have problems, Howe...

8 Attacks (Continued from page One) for the revocation of charters and dissolution of eo-operatives found violating any terms of the Co-op-erative Law. Another section of the merchant-sponsored measure prohibited all state agencies from giving any aid or advice to co-op-eratives, except that given to all types of business. Agree to Taxes The farmer purchasing co-ops have agreed to meet all taxes that similar business firms pay. In January, 1941, the Agricultural Conference Board adopted a resolution that it would neither seek nor ask tax exemptions for agricultural purchasing co-operatives. Following the adoption of this policy the farmers declared that they felt they had met the issue raised by merchant interests. These groups have, however, continued their attacks on co-operatives and the farmers have asserted they felt the merchant groups were seeking not tax equality but an end to co-opera-tives. The question for the General Assembly to decide, then, at its next session is wheth...
