August 1, 1943 City People Sought To Aid Farmers To aid the farmers of Prince George County, who are faced with a shortage of labor, the Prince George Farm Bureau is seeking the help of city people, who were at one time farmers or farm people, to give one or two days a week so the county farmers may harvest their crops. Directors of the Farm Bureau are of the opinion that many people living in Hopewell and vicinity might have lived on farms at one time, so a plea is being made for their cooperation to help relieve the labor situation. Men, women and boys, who know anything at all about farming and harvesting of crops, have been asked to register with County Agent Homer A. Noblin, John E. Nemetz, secretary of the Farm Bureau, or at the Hopewell News office. The bureau plans to seek the aid of of the Negro people through W.

6 A.FBF Recommendations Win Congress' OK But Fight On Subsidies Unsettled (Continued from Page One) ministration a breathing spell in the struggle over the fastening of food price subsidies on the national economy. Three members deserted the anti-subsidy ranks on the eve of summer adjournment, and by the margin of a single vote the Administration staved off another resounding congressional mandate to stop paying consumer grocery bills out of the public, treasury. A previous legislative prohibition against the rollback subsidies, adopted by overwhelming majorities of both Houses, was nullified by the President's veto. Final action eliminated the second subsidy ban from a simple resolution which was then passed, continuing the Commodity Credit Corporation through the congressional recess and until next January 1, and increasing its borrowing power $350,000,000. Thus a headline struggle, in which the American Farm Bureau Federation took a foremost part and scored repeatedly, ended with...

6 1943 Food Production Will Gain The Agricultural Department said last month that total food production this year probably would exceed last year's record output by 4 per cent, but estimated that per capita consumption would fall about 3.7 per below 1942. This forecast on production was based on the July report of the Federal Crop Reporting Board, the assumption of average weather for the remainder of the year and a continuation of the present trend in livestock production. The department, in the first official forecast of 1943 production in relation to last year's output, said food crops were expected to be about 10 per cent below 1942, but 11 per cent above the 1935-39 average. The indicated drop in food crops will be more than offset, it said, by an increase in meat, dairy and poultry production. .To Purchase Meat In another report, the department said the government planned to purchase during the next five months an extra billion pounds of meat for unexpected war requirements an...

September 1, 1943 Inequalities Are Cited By Walker L. M. Walker, Jr., State commissioner of agriculture, has agreed to serve on the Virginia War Board if his services are still desired after his "confession of faith." In accepting the appointment Mr. Walker wrote a pointed letter to Marvin Jones, War Food Administrator, giving his estimation of the present food program. "Soybeans at $1.80 per bushel in comparison to a steam shovel operator at $22 a day," Mr. Walker wrote, and "frying chickens with a wholesale price of cents compared to 60 cents for a haircut, to me, as a representative farmer, seem badly out of line." The post as a member of the State War Board was tendered Mr. Walker in a telegram he received from Mr. Jones. The agency is concerned chiefly with the allocation of farm feeds, machinery and equipment in the State and has its headquarters at Blacksburg. Wants Notification After setting out his views on the agricultural program in general, Mr. Walker said: "If, holding ...

O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, said that farmers of the South have a greater responsibility in preserving our democratic institutions than any other group in the nation.

Our economy is an agricultural economy, necessarily, and our people are actuated by an undiluted agrarian philosophy. We have abundant natural resources and more than ample supplies of labor. But on the other side of the ledger, we find handicaps and liabilities. We have lived, traditionally and necessarily, under a one-crop farm economy and a one-party political economy.
