Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, No. 4 Goochland Rally Draws Toms^fe%eaders FB Program Submitted To Congress Combining business with more business, President O'Neal and other leaders of the AFBF and Associated Women spent a workcrammed week during their special meeting in Washington in February. They not only presented the Federation's farm program to the new Congress but tackled such brain busters as comparable prices and parity, price support policies and co-ordination of agricultural agencies. State leaders spent their available time contacting their Congressional delegations, explaining what is at stake for farmers and pointing out the views of the country's largest agricultural organization. Associated Women Twenty-seven States were represented in the group comprising 18 AFBF board members, five "State Farm Bureau presidents and seven officials of the Associated Women. Mrs. R. C. F. Weagly, AW president, and other members of the women's group were entertained at ...

Hart Two Officers Attend Regional Meeting In S. C. Mrs. S. Ashton Ozlin, of Kenbridge, vice-president of the Associated Women of the VFBF, and Mrs. Charles N. DeShazo, Secretary, attended the Regional Presidents and Secretaries meeting in Columbia, South Carolina, in March. One of the most fundamental points brought out during this con- ference was that the Farm Bureau has an opportunity to unite its strength with that of other rural agencies without petty jealousies, in the true spirit of fellowship and promote better living for all farm groups. Examples of this cooperation were such as Illinois, where the Farm Bureau pays all local salaries of Farm Agents and even furnishes the Home Demonstration Agents cars. In North Carolina the Farm Bureau takes charge of much of the Blue Cross subscrip...

April, 1947 Soil Bill (Continued from page 4) states, it is estimated that about $16,000,000 a year would be required. This is the equivalent of about a dozen ears off each acre of corn. In order to get each unit of plant food into the soil as economically as possible, the test would be made, insofar as possible, with high analysis fertilizers. Since phosphate is the bottleneck which prevents large scale production of high analysis mixed fertilizers, government funds would be used to build a high analysis phos- Gan&sters in the Grass TIT — Weeds and brush are gangsters in the grass. They literally steal your cattle and sheep by reducing the carrying capacity of grazing land or pastures. They rob your soil of moisture and minerals. They choke the life out of your grass. Mesquite and sagebrush in Western range country are often thieving plants. They're tough and aggressive.

He said there were 51 county health units in the State at the time he took office. This has now grown to 69, and he expects all counties to have such units before the end of his administration. The money has been appropriated by the State, he added. Congressman Smith recalled the deflationary period after the last war and expressed hope that production could be controlled and prices sustained so that there would be no similar occurrence following World War 11.

April, 1947 The Flue-Cured Tobacco Situation Address by John B. Vance, Chief, Marketing Quota Section of The Virginia State P. M. A. Office, Before Farm Bureau Regional Meetings in Martinsville, South Boston and South Hill. It will be remembered by most producers of flue-cured tobacco that the National Marketing Quota for 1947 originally proclaimed by the Secretary of Agriculture would have resulted in an average decrease of approximately 14 per cent in the majority of flue-cured tobacco acreage allotments below the 1946 alloted acreage. The amount so proclaimed was based upon the best figures available at that time with respect to total disappearance, carryover, expected production from the 1946 crop and other related factors. Since the original quota proclamation, the situation has materially changed in that it has been found necessary to increase the 1947 quota to a level approximately equal to the 1946 quota. This will result in the average "old farm" flue-cured tobacco allotmen...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, No. 5 Blalock Named To VFBF Organization Staff AFBF Asks Federal Economy A 20 per cent cut in USDA's administrative expenses for the 1948 fiscal year is favored by American Farm Bureau Federation on condition a similar reduction is made in these expenditures throughout the rest of the Government. President Edward A. O'Neal made this clear when he and State FB leaders appeared April 11 before the House Appropriations subcommittee. His detailed statement included recommendations for REA, coordination of conservation agencies, crop insurance, school lunch program, research funds, extension service, Commodity Credit Corporation, and others. "While we strongly favor strict economy and elimination of all unnecessary expenditures, excessive personnel and needless services, we believe such economy should be carefully applied on a selective basis that will eliminate dead wood and preserve essential services," he declared.

Put oily rags in covered metal containers. Protect the roof from wind-blown fire brands by using fire-resistant roofing, such as asphalt shingles. Rake leaves and weeds away from buildings and fences, and don't burn on windy days. Spring Clean-Up on the farm is low-cost fire insurance. It costs nothing but effort and common sense to prevent 90 per cent of all farm fires. "Clean Up —Don't Burn Up" — That's A Safe Spring Slogan Farmers need not be told that spring is at hand, but it is timely to remind farmers that spring brings with it a scourge of fires which devastate many farms. Today's message is brief and to the point "CLEAN UP—DON'T BURN UP." That is a warning we should heed before it is too late. The year 1946 long will be remembered for a series of hotel fires in which over 200 people lost the...

May, 19*7 Frazier Asks Founding Of Turkey Grower Groups Calling for additional appropriations for research in turkey disease, production and marketing problems, Frank Frazier, executive secretary of the Virginia Poultry Federation, urged growers to form strong organizations to aid in obtaining these appropriations, when he appeared as guest speaker at a recent meeting at Remlik Hall farm in Middlesex County. The future turkey picture, says Frazier, is one of intensified competition, and individual success lies in greater efficiency in production and marketing. This increased efficiency will depend upon successful research by agricultural colleges and the United States Department of Agriculture. Henry M. Taylor, agricultural statistician for the Crop Reporting Service, citing State turkey figures, said it is still too early to know what the trend will be this year, but all indications point to a large reduction in the crop. Hatcheries reported only 22,000 poults hatched in February; ...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, No. 6 Soil Bill Is Introduced In The Senate Plea Made For Funds On Research The need for continued appropriations for Agricultural Research has been stressed by M. A. Hubbard, VFBF Executive Secretary, following the action of the House Appropriations Committee to cut the appropriation of $19,000,000 for this purpose to $6,000,000. In a letter to the pre>s of Viiginia Mr. Hubbard pointed out the fallacy of this type of economy in the Federal budget. He wrote as follows: "Under provisions of the HopeFlannagan Agricultural Research Act of 1946, a total of $19,000,000 was to have been made available to agricultural experiment stations and other agencies for research in production and marketing. The House Appropriations Committee now proposes to make available for such purposes only $6,000,000 instead of $19,000,000. The organization I represent is in favor of drastic curtailment of unnecessary Federal expenditures but reduction ...
