Invest In Victory Bonds Vol. 5, No. 6 " Peanut-Hog Group Organized In Virginia New Farm Credit Bill Introduced To untie the knot into which the three agricultural credit bills have worked themselves, Farm Bureau, National Grange and National Council of Farmer Cooperatives have prepared a new bill which contains the best features of the three measures. Given to the Senate Agricultural Committee recently, the composite measure brings provisions of the three bills — Flannagan Farm Credit, Cooley Home Owners' Corporation and the Bankhead amendments to the Farm Tennant Act—into harmony. Appearing for Farm Bureau before the Senate Committee, W. R. Ogg of the Washington office reviewed the Federation's stand on the three bills. "While the AFBF has wanted the Flannagan bill enacted into law during this session, some clarifying amendments are needed in the measure. Additional amendments are needed by the other two measures to safeguard and improve them," he said. Would Lay Foundation In orde...

June, 1946 Peanuts (Continued from Page 1) put into the work." On motion of H. B. Moseley, Brunswick County, the directors voted to ask hoards of supervisors in the nine peanut growing counties for appropriations based on peanut acreage as shown by AAA allotment figures in 1942. Three cents an acre, which was suggested, would bring in approximately $4,500. The ratio of hogs to peanuts was said to be about even in all counties. This money, which the board said it hoped would be forthcoming, would be used to supplement $2,500 already granted by the State for this year and 25 cents from the regular dues of each Farm Bureau member in the nine counties. There are over 2,100 Farm Bureau members in the area concerned. Wakefield was named temporary headquarters for the association, but the directors withheld selection of a permanent location, pending appointment of an executive secretary. Under present plans the association would share an office to save money. Meeting May 11 Plans to have a...

6 Traffic Fatalities Matter Of Grave Concern to U. S. With the nation's traffic fatality rate almost back to its postwar peak, and not only the number of accidents but the cost of accidents rising each month, American automobile owners are faced with a problem that only they can cure, H. E. Baumberger, Regional Director of the State Farm Insurance Companies, has declared. That this is a national problem ~ has been signified by the National Highway Safety Conference called by President Truman and the campaign currently being sponsored by The Advertising Council (the cooperative group of advertising leaders who produced most of the War Bond and other war-time advertising campaigns) in cooperation with the National Safety Council. That it is a local problem is evident in this and every community by the increasing number of deaths and injuries which are reported almost each week, Mr. Baumberger said. Some idea of the trend in the number and severity of automobile accidents can be gather...

June, 1946 Tuck's Action On Marketing Plans Lauded By Chamber President T. Croxton Gordon, of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, hailed establishment by Governor Tuck of the Richmond Marketing Authority as an essential step in bringing about a better balanced agriculture and industrial economy in the Richmond trading area. "The appointment by Governor Tuck of the five-man Public Authority, thus giving legal sanction to setting up this wholesale produce and fruit market, is another instance of how the Richmond chamber serves the community in an undramatic manner," Mr. Gordon said.

Invest In Victory Bonds Vol. 5, No. 7 Rockbridge County Organizes Farm Bureau AFL Seeks To Unionize Leaf Growers Organization of farmers into a labor union "simply won't work," M. Ak Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, said at Danville on June 21. Mr. Hubbard went to Danville and Chatham to investigate a movement on the part of a group of Pittsylvania County farmers to organize in affiliation with the Tobacco Workers International Union (AFL). His arrival followed closely the drafting of a proposed constitution of the "International Brotherhood of Tobacco and Allied Agricultural Producers." The executive board of TWIU was schedued to meet in Danville this month to consider final formation of the growers' union—one of the first of its kind attempted. After talking with farmers in the Danville area, Mr. Hubbard declared that such an organization cannot accomplish more than have such organizations as the Farm Bureau.

fuly, 1946 On The Farm A Woman's Work Is Never Done By MRS. DEL PRESTON JONES Chairman, Associated Women, Shenandoah County Greetings to the Farm Women of Virginia, Toilers of the Soil, whose work is never done. The great thing in this world in not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving. During the past weeks of strikes it seems we are moving in the John L. Lewis way, "Nuts to Democracy", what do the strikers care about Democracy? The only thing the strikers care for is "Pay Day" not whistle time and pay day like it use to be— just pay day now. We women of the farm do not have whistle time and when other people, not the farmers, get through telling us how much you can get for the things you've worked so hard for, long hours gambling with the weather, getting help to complete the job —if you were lucky enough to find help—if not, it's go to the field and take a man's place. Then you do your housework, getting meals and doing the washing and the other countless thin...

July, 1946 Unionization /Continued from Page One) "If you are stopped at the warehouse to attempt collective bargaining, the tobacco will ruin. The farmer would defeat his purpose. Strike Against Himself "Such a strike would be against himself. Who else is there to strike against? No one. Unionization of farmers won't work. The farmer would be giving away his money for nothing." Mr. Hubbard, formerly head of the tobacco section of the State Department of Agriculture, said farm leaders have been studying the tobacco marketing situation for a long time and have, through the acreage adjustment program and the proposed price stabilization program, to a great extent eliminated a large percentage of the risks involved in producing tobacco. The majority of tobacco farmers in Pittsylvania County will turn a cold shoulder to labor union efforts to organize them in a farmers union in the opinion of Claude S. Whitehead, president of the Pittsylvania County Farm Bureau. Whitehead Opposed "I wan...

The women are busy canning the fruits and vegetables, plus errands for their husbands! You who know the "ins and outs" of farm work also know that the nights are short and the days are very long and full of work. Not until the last supper dish has been washed and polished and placed on the pantry shelf (until the morning meal) do you feel that you can spare a little time to glimpse at the "weather report" — "Orphan Annie" —a few personals and other interesting things that are published by our daily papers while at the time you feel that to go to bed would be a "balm" to your weary body.

4 fflK; f. ; : M . ~* : " > «oßp§qip^os||fe | Good Public Relations Described Speaking at the Southern Farm Bureau Training School on July 16, Ladd Haystead, farm editor of Fortune Magazine, declared that good public relations "means that your organization and its programs are good for the majority of the citizens of this country." "Conversely," declared Mr. Haystead, "what may seem to be good for you as a region, a certain vocation, a certain town, or even a farm organization may not be the best for the country as a whole. When that happens, to put it bluntly, you do not have good public relations." Mr. Haystead pointed out that a good and recent example of an organization with what he terms an excellent public relations program is the American Veterans' committee. "Quite apart from whether you subscribe to all the tenets of that group or not," said the Fortune writer, "you must agree that their motto of 'Citizens First and Veterans Second' is definitely, on the face of ...
