October, 1945 Notes (Continued from Page Two) to be done on the part of individual Farmer Bureau members. The State Office is handicapped at present by the lack of personnel due to war conditions, but they have-in mind a group of men out of which will be chosen one or two who can really do the job for the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. Lack of finances is going to ONCE again the folks who feed the nation are harvesting one of the great crops of our history, and the record-breaking harvest of these war years has been produced by fewer people maintaining top production on more and more acres. The progress that has been made in agriculture in recent years is almost unbelievable—corn yields of well over 100 bushels an acre, a rarity a few years ago, are now common; the production of ton-litters of hogs in less than 6 months after farrowing is no great problem now; hens that lay more than 200 eggs a year are not hard to find; and there are dairy cows with records of well over 30,000 po...

I firmly believe that an enduring peace will depend, to a great degree, on adequate soil fertility of this and other nations. As far back as 25" years ago, Mr. Robert McHarrison observed and reported that different soils have an important bearing on the diet and the health of the inhabitants of a region. One of his illustrations was that at one time he was stationed among an isolated group of natives in one of the more remote parts of India. This was a remarkably healthy group of people. They were farmers and lived largely on grains and dairy products. : M, IK \y, * 1 Fm Getting More Bushels Per Acre With | I' '• S° ut h ern States Open Formula : ?pj Seed Corn x~~ Experience has shown that the use of adapted hybrids means more >vH corn antl more P r °fi ts P er acre< In order to su PP l y farmer-members \ with ample supplies of high quality hybrids, Southern States Cooperative h...

O'Neal, president of" the American Farm Bureau Federation, last month headed a group of Farm Bureau leaders* from all regions in a call on President Truman to discuss the farm situation with him, and to make recommen- dations as to price-support programs for agriculture during the postwar period of adjustment. Later, the group presented the same recommendations to Secretary of Agriculture Anderson. Mr. O'Neal commended the President for his statement on agriculture in his message to Congress, particularly as to the "need for additional measures to strengthen the machinery for carrying out price-support commitments, and for laying the basis for broader peacetime markets for agricultural products." Farmers want to keep the fifteen basic laws now on the statute books for stabilizing agriculture, Mr. O'Neal told the President. "With only minor chang...

December, 1945 Ogg Reviews Objectives Excerpts from an address by JV. R- Ogg, Director, Washington Office, American Farm Bureau Federation, at the annual meeting of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, Richmond, November 14. One of the basic objectives of the American Farm Bureau Federation is to give American agriculture an effective voice in shaping national policies and programs for the welfare of agriculture and the Nation as a whole. During What Helps WHAT is it that helps agriculture? We know that to grow good crops it takes good seed, fertile soil, a favorable climate, and the skill and experience of the individual. Likewise in the production of livestock you need well-bred animals, proper care and feeding, plus intelligent management. Through better seeds and new types of plants like hybrid corn, through soil conservation methods, better land management, and improved .machinery, through more effective control of pests and parasites, America has reached a level of food produc...

6 Text of President Holsinger's Annual Address the Shenandoah National Park. They replied that they did not sell locks except through regular merchants and to write the name of the merchant to whom they should send the locks to be retailed to me. I sent them the name of the Rockingham Farm Bureau, so without further reply they sent me the locks at a high figure. Freedom Needed I am convinced that greatest good which our organization can do for our farm people is to promote free enterprise, freedom to produce goods and services, freedom of exchange in goods and services, and freedom to improve goods and services. Those three and those three alone. Not one alone, but all three. Where our losses arise are in the violation of one or more of these sovereign rights of people. Take number one, freedom to produce goods and services. One man will say it is all right for a farmer to produce all the wheat and corn, fruits and vegetables he will, but his services must be performed by others and...

There is much talk these days about full employment, full production, an economy of abundance, etc.; but if we are to' attain these desirable objectives, there are certain basic requirements which must be met.
