This trade will enable them to obtain dollars to finance purchases in the United States, he sa...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, Now RaJTTftk&JFavorable To Agricultural Items FB Backs Protest On Leaf Tobacco growers and county Farm Bureau tobacco committeemea from the Atlantic Coast to the Blue Ridge in North Carolina and Virginia voted unanimously in Winston-Salem on January 8 to carry their protest over sagging tobacco prices to the Secretary of State. The Virginia Farm Bureau was well represented at the meeting. The gathering voted to wire the Secretary of State that their support of the British loan was with the understanding that the British would use enough of the credit established to give adequate support to purchase of tobacco in the United States. This has not been done, the group said. J. Melville Broughton, general counsel for the Bright Tobacco Warehousemen's Association, charged that the British discriminated between the lower and upper tobacco belts in making their purchases. Wires were authorized to all tobacco manufactures and broker...

4 State Forestry Service Assists Landowners Recognizing that unwise cutting practices no less than uncontrolled forest fires are responsible for the present understocked condition of many of Virginia's forests, ana pursuant to legislation enacted by the 1946 General Assembly, Virginia Forest Service has established a service designed to provide technical forestry assistance to forest land- owners. Through the operation of this service, coupled with the increased measure of forest fire protection which has been devel oped, it is hoped that within a period of years the annual growth of wood in the state may be measurably increased. The forest products industry is one of the most important in the Commonwealth and it currently requires the equivalent of nearly six million cords of wood annually. While this annual drain is somewhat less than net annual growth, it is dangerously near a balance. To maintain this vast industry, timber must be harvested in such a manner as to provide for fut...

The wide experience which Dr. Corbett has had in Land Grant College work is indicated by the following record of positions he has held: Instructor, Cornell University, 1924-25; Economist, Rhode Island Experiment Station, 1925; Head of Department of Economics and Sociology, Rhode Island State College, 1933-34; Coordinator of On rural routes everywhere in America, on snowy highways of the north, on sunny by-ways of the south, live the 5,500,000 ranch and farm families who produce America's supply of food.

6 Frederick Increases Membership The Frederick County Farm Bureau showed an increase in membership from 480 to 780 during last year, according to reports submitted at the annual meeting of that farm group in Winchester. The Farm Bureau also pointed out a slight increase in business at its membership store. It was pointed out that the most important factor in the year's growth was the construction of a grain elevator and feed mixing and grinding plant at a cost of $17,500, which is available to its members. President M. J. Pease presided over the meeting and told of his trip to San Francisco, where he attended the American Farm Bureau Federation convention. C. W. Sollenberger, general manager, submitted a detailed report of the business operations of the organization, and spoke more in detail on the national convention which he also attended. He stated that 76 per cent of all organized agriculture belongs to the American Farm Bureau Federation, and added that the Farm Bureau is the m...

February, 1947 Support Prices No Guarantee To Individuals Support prices for farm products are merely an expression, on the part of the government, to resist sharp decline in prices, according to Dr. H. M. Love, agricultural economist for the Virginia Agricultural Extension Service. It should be remembered in all cases, says Dr. Love, that the supports are not guarantees to individual farmers against having to sell at lower than parity. The government usually reserves the right to establish support areas.

Hart Women Voters 9 Leagues Proposed For Rural Areas Mrs. Powell of Onancock has become interested in a project which, so far as we have heard, is unique for AW in the state. She feels that while the Farm Bureau reaches rural people, there are many women in small towns that do not take part in legislative programs and in the privileges of citizenship. Therefore, she is in- terested in organizing a League of Women Voters. The purpose of a League of Women Voters is to study policies and candidates from an on-partisan point of view and to arouse the interest of women in voting. While in many sections this work may function as one of the projects of the Associated Women, it is most interesting to find a member of our group working on this project.

4 Resolution Requests Consideration Of Firmer Tobacco Prices The United States Department of Agriculture has been requested to study the possibility of devising some means for the stabilization of tobacco prices in all belts, under a resolution adopted by the Board of Directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Meeting in Richmond on February 13. The resolution was passed following the presentation by representatives who were in attendance at a meeting in Martinsville on February 6. The resolution adopted in Richmond was the same as that adopted in Martinsville. The wording of the resolution adopted in Martinsville is as follows : "Whereas, prices on the Old Belt tobacco markets of Virginia and North Carolina were greatly lower during the latter part of the 1946 selling season than they were at the beginning, the average declining from $53.11 per hundred to $29.92, and "Whereas, prices on the other tobacco belts which sold earlier were more stabilized, the average for Georgia b...

March, 1947 Editorial (Continued from Page 2) for this inevitable trend of development suggests to a sagacious people. For it would be absurd to say that there are not things to do with these resources after the present making up of war deprivations has been completed. We must recognize the real magnitude of our productive power and keep it going to produce for all the things that only the more favored have enjoyed in the past. As progress is made in catching up on the wartime postponables, we must feed into our "product mix" more of "" -— It often seems as though a farmer or rancher never has enough help. But did you ever stop to think that there are literally thousands of people who work for you that you seldom, if ever, see? These unseen "hired hands" are the scientists of agriculture, who work for you the year s 'round in agricultural experiment stations of the nation. Their accomplishments are many—and can benefit you directly in proportion to the advantage you take of their se...

Annual Report In the annual report Mr. Willis had the following to say: "Many of you will recall the meeting held in the Fall of 1932 when the Culpeper Cooperative Farm Bureau was organized with about 220 members having paid $6.00 membership fee each, making a little over $1,300.00 as the only cash asset. There were other assets however; the desire and determination on the part of the members to own and operate their own agency for securing their supplies, and a Board of Directors who were willing and anxious to give us much time and thought as was necessary to get this organization started, and who had a vision of the possibilities. These Directors not only gave freely of their time and judgment but, to secure additional funds to operate, endorsed notes making them individually liable for paym...
