6 Culpeper FB President On Va. Feed Committee Edwin M. Eppes of Richmond, A. Gordon Willis of Culpeper, President of the Culpeper Farm Bureau, and Frank Shelby of Portsmouth have been named as the Virginia Feed Industry committee by Porter Hardy, Jr., and Dr. John R. Hutcheson, chairman and vice-chairman, respectively, of the Virginia United States Department of Agriculture War Board. This committee was appointed at the request of representatives of Virginia's feed industry and agricultural workers who held a conference in Richmond last month to consider ways of combating the shortage of protein for livestock feeds. It was pointed out in the discussions that in order to make the protein come anywhere near "going around" it i$ necessary for farmers to feed the smallest amount of protein possible without decreasing production. Only through voluntarily adopting a conservation program that will spread the limited quantities of proteins as far as possible can farmers avoid the annoyance ...

This sum was allotted to the extension division of Virginia Polytechnic Institute by the United States Department of Agriculture, War Food Administration, to finance plans for relieving the farm labor shortage. Technically, the expenditures had to be authorized by the Governor. Details of Virginia's part in the farm labor effort were worked out by a committee headed by Dr. John R. Hutcheson, VPI extension director, and presented to the Governor. The work involves cooperation among the extension service, the State Department of Education and other agencies to supply farmers with much-needed helpers.

Fawcett insists that your wools must be put up properly this year with tags, black, burry and fine wool packed separately. He again cautioned against the shipping of any wet wools. Apparently, he received a great deal of complaint last year from mills and he wants to avoid a repetition this year. Your wools have been sold at an excellent price this year, and should be put up properly. He suggests that you impress upon your county agents and local receivers the fact that all bags are numbered and that wool improperly put up...

June 1, 1943 WPB Denies Hampering Food Effort An unofficial denial that food production is being hampered by the failure of the government to release sufficient farm machinery to enable farmers to plant and harvest the record crops that the government hopes for, has come from the War Production Board. Complaints to this effect have been widespread, with farmers declaring that equipment was rusting in warehouses while their dealers couldn't get hold of it. On the other hand, the Department of Agriculture, it was learned, has taken the complaints seriously enough to conduct a na-tion-wide survey, through county agents, to determine what the farmers actually are likely to need between now and fall. The returns from this survey are being tabulated and will be turned over to WPB for its guidance. WPB, meanwhile, is preparing soon to issue the final quota of the farm year, from July 1 to October 1. It admittedly may be necessary to modify this quota when the results of the survey are stud...

6 Farm Values Show Gain In Virginia The Virginia index of farm real estate values on March 1 this year stood at 131 per cent of the 191214 average. This was 11 per cent higher than the values a year earlier and the largest annual gain since 1920. In that year the index was 189 and at a peak, having practically doubled in 5 years from the low of 97 in 1915. For 11 years after the 1920 peak land values remained above the 1912-14 average, but declined from an index of 180 in 1921 to 117 in 1931. In 1932 the index dropped to 99 and in 1933 reached a low of 88. In 1934 the index went up to 91 and has shown a gradual increase since, according to figures of the Virginia Cooperative Crop Reporting Service. Although Virginia land values tend to follow the national trend, they did reach a higher level in 1920 than for the United States, the national index in that year being 170. That position has since been maintained. In 1933 the national index dropped to a low of 73, while the Virginia inde...

Administration spokesmen estimate that the subsidy for meats, butter and coffee, designed to roll back their prices an average of 10 per cent, will cost $300,000,000 (presumably per year).

Invest in War Bonds Vol. 3, No. 7 VFBF Directors Want Central Food Authority Jones Takes Food Job As Davis Quits President Roosevelt has accepted the resignation of Chester C. Davis as war food administrator and appointed Marvin Jones as his successor. Davis submitted his letter of resignation on June 16 for two principal reasons. He said: "I find that I have assumed a public responsibility while the authority, not only over broad food policy, but day-to-day actions, is being exercised elsewhere. "You must have in my position a man who can wholeheartedly advocate and defend the program of broad general subsidies you announced on June 15. "I cannot do this for the reason that I do not believe such subsidies will be effective in controling inflation unless they are accompanied here, as they are in England, by current tax and savings programs that drain off excess buying power, and by tight control and management of the food supply.

New Areas Get Plan Of Indemnity The United Wool Growers Association has worked out a plan for extending the sheep indemnity program to counties having more than 5 per cent of the sheep killed by dogs each year, K. A. Keithly, general manager, announced. Since there is often great variation from year to year in the number of sheep killed by dogs, the numbers killed during 1940, 1941, and 1942 are being averaged to secure a representative figure indicating the risk of indemnifying sheep in the counties having a higher than normal kill. For each 1 per cent that the percentage of sheep killed during the three years exceeds 5 per cent, the indemnity fee is increased 20 per cent in order to cover the greater risk. In a cou...

6 O'Neal Backs CCC But Wants Limit Testifying before the House Banking and Currency Committee, President O'Neal of the AFBF strongly urged the continuation of the Commodity Credit Corporation, but insisted that the activities of the Corporation be limited to the purposes for which it was originally established. Recommendations as to basic policy were made as follows: 1. We strongly favor the continuation of the Commodity Credit Corporation and insist that it be enabled to carry out its necessary functions to aid agriculture and, particularly, to enable agriculture to make its maximum contribution to the war effort. 2. The Commodity Credit Corporation should adhere to the basic purposes which Congress has authorized; namely, to help stabilize and safeguard farm prices at parity levels and to help assure adequate stable supplies of agricultural commodities. 3. We are unalterably opposed to the use of subsidies in lieu of fair prices in the market place at times when consumers are full...

July 1. 1943 Jones (Continued from Page One) all phases of the food program— including prices—should be vested in one man or agency, responsible directly to the President. That agency, he felt, need not necessarily be his, but whether a person or an agency, it should be openly and publicly responsible for the food program. He felt that the food production outlook, although not as favorable as had been anticipated, is less critical than the threatened collapse of the over-all administration of food production, pricing and distribution because of official mismanagement. Not In Inner Circle One of the principal disappointments to Davis had been what he regards as the failure of Mr. Roosevelt to take him into the inner circle of advisors when all major policies affecting his field are discussed. Many orders affecting food administration have come to him as a surprise. He was not consulted on the decision to roll back butter, coffee and meat prices through the use of subsidies. Several O...
