August, 1946 'Tremendous Forward Step' Seen In Research Bill As adjournment neared for the 79th Congress, Representative Flannagan of Virginia expressed hope, July 27, that a pending bill for further agricultural research would be approved before the lawmakers headed for home. "If the bill is passed and is efficiently administered," said Congress- man Flannagan, "I foresee a tremendous improvement in farm marketing. In my opinion, it will be the greatest piece of farm legislation in the last 10 or 15 years." The bill, which is backed by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, would provide for a greatly augmented research program designed to place agriculture in a research position comparable to that of other industries and would promote a scientific approach to the problems of marketing, transportation and distribution of farm products. Flannagan described the marketing problem as the "big unanswered problem" of farmers. Under the bill approved by the House and reported favorably by t...

6 O'Neal Attacks Subsidies Before House Committee In testifying before the House Banking and Currency Committee on farm subsidies Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, said: "There must be definite provisions made for the elimination of consumer subsidies. Again may I remind you that in the removal of subsidies farmers are not asking for higher returns. They are simply asking that they receive their money in the market place and not be forced to take payments from the federal treasury." Mr. O'Neal said that farmers insisted on a program that "really strikes at the root of inflation, one aimed at correcting disparities and not one subject to the political whims and pressures of powerful groups." He stressed that under the system now in effect in this country the government "pays part of every consumer's grocery bill," pointing out that such procedure is "utterly foreign to the American concept, and too dangerous to continue, even for a short time during ...

August, 1946, Compulsory Federal Hospital-Health Insurance Is Disturbing Farm Folks Farm folks are disturbed by proposals designed to provide compulsory Federal hospital and health insurance, Mrs. Charles B. Sewell, administrative director of the AFBF Associated Women said in addressing the recent Chicago conference on rural health. "Our chief concern is to get more adequate medical care and hos- pitalization for our farm folk. "Yet, we'wonder if the personnel set up to administer such ahealth program would know no more about the subject that those placed in positions of authority by other governmental bureaus dealing with agriculture and who recommended Hating the shoes off a horse at night to save critical steel as a war measure'."

G. Blalock of the Virginia Farm Bureau Flue-Cured Tobacco Committee. The Corporation is a medium through which growers can avail themselves of loans at 90 per cent of parity.

September, 1946 Upswing Of Communism Disturbing To Farm Folk 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! I hope that we busy farmers at this important season of the year have not been too engrossed in our own everyday living that we have not failed to notice the important meaning of the uprising (quick as mushrooms) of Communism all over the world, and what that means to us right here in Virginia. You may say that is in China! The Communists in China are reported to have more than 10 million men in their army and that is too large a number to make me feel happy concerning the kind of peace we want in the future. And to think of the other Communists in different parts of the world, thinking in the same line, and their trend of thought and plan of living which certainly is not our American way of life. What are we the Farmers of America going to do about it? Are we going...

September, 1946 Watermelon Feast Held In Lee Talks by leading farm men and women, singing, and a watermelon feast featured a meeting, held Aug. 10 at Jonesville High School under the sponsorship of the Lee County Farm Bureau. The meeting was presided over by J. O. Woodward, president of the Lee County Farm Bureau, with Charles G. Baker serving as "Bad Lands" Into Good Meat Vision and resourcefulness in the rebuilding of various kinds of abandoned and unproductive lands may x pay dividends. The return of such "bad lands" to profitable use is equally important to producers and to us at Swift & Company. Because "what helps agriculture helps all of us." Here is a story of such vision. Here is an example of one man's initiative. Like a farm torn up by a giant's plow, 600 acres of Illinois strip mine land stood bare. It was apparently worthless. That was in 1938. Today those once-bare ridges are knee-deep in grass and clover. Each rugged acre makes more than enough grass for o...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 5, No. 10 r .: / VFBF Convention In Richmond*Ncv. 13-14 Flake Shaw Speaks In Spotsylvania Speaking at Spotsylvania High School September 27, R. Flake Shaw, executive secretary of the North Carolina Farm Bureau, declared that obtaining memberships in the Farm Bureau is a small problem if solicitors "know and can tell others what the organization has meant to this country." Mr. Shaw should know whereof he speaks. When he took over as secretary of the North Carolina Farm Bureau in 1941 there were 2,200 Farm Bureau members in the border state. There are now 42,000 members and "we'll be awfully disappointed if we don't get 50,000 this year," said Mr. Shaw. The North Carolina secretary declared that the Farm Bureau's program consisting of 15 basic laws affecting the agricultural economy of the nation takes into account the parity concept and its relation to income. This program, he pointed out, was "set up to give to farm people what has been g...

October, 1946 Your Vote (Continued from page 4) have elected Wendell Willkie President of the United States. One of the most striking illustrations I know about the importance of a single vote was related recently by Dr. Robert E. Speer. He told of David Kelso, of Switzerland County, Indiana. Mr. Kelso once acted as attorney for a boy - who was charged with murder. The lad was acquitted and in his gratitude he said to Mr. Kelso, "If ever I have an Grass is on the Move Out of the sandhills of Nebraska, up from the Chama country of New Mexico ... all the way from the state of Washington to Texas, there's a flood of livestock on the move.

Last month he discussed San Francisco. Air. Acker was last in San Francisco and Salt Lake City 51 years ago.—Ed.) About 3 :30 A. M., May 29th, 1895, I arrived in Salt Lake City. A bus carried me to the Walker House, best hotel in the city. The city is located in a beautiful basin called Salt Lake Valley, twenty miles long and eighteen miles wide, surrounded by the snowcapped Rockies. The scene of this basin from the western side is a beautiful picture, especially to one who had crossed the barren table lands. The most important structure of the city can be seen. Away in the distance is the famous Wasatch Mountains, its highest peak being 11,500 feet high. The country between the city and...
