4 Milk and Munitions! By. A. G. Black Governor, Farm Credit Administration. Throughout the length and breadth of the land our people are marshalling every effort in strengthening our national defenses and in aiding ourselves by supporting the British in their heroic effort to stem the tide of ruthlessness and greed. American agriculture has been called upon to play its part in this great struggle, and its role is of greatest importance. It is food that will win the war for the nations resisting Hitler, and by the same token it is food that will dictate the terms of the peace. The increased production of food is essential in aiding our allies who are resisting Hitlerism and aggression. It is vital to our own National Defense and it will be of undiminished importance when peace comes, and throughout our future. Americans will be assured an adequate, nourishing diet today, and throughout the years that are to come. American agriculture has already made rapid strides in launching this c...

October IS, 1941 Milk Handling Care Is Urged Virginia produced cream and butter has shown considerable improvement in quality since the inauguration of a state-wide program in June, but producers need to give still more attention to details of milk and cream handling to avoid losses, according to C. L. Fleshman, dairy manufacturing specialist of the Agricultural Extension Service, Blacksburg. Over 1,400 gallons of Virginia produced cream was refused by cream buyers between June 1 and August 31, because it did not meet national and state regulations which state that cream and butter containing excessive mold are adulterated and subject to seizure and condemnation if offered for sale. Cream buyers report that the producer response to the program has been very encouraging and that the meld test, which is a part of the laboratory analysis of every creamery and cream station, has provided a visual report of every can of cream of doubtful quality. With the favorable price of butterfat, an...

October 15, 1941 Secretary Wickard Urges The Defeat of Hitler Here is the text of the address by Secretary of Agriculture Claude R. Wickard delivered before a meeting of agricultural leaders of the Southern states in Memphis, Tenn., on September 29. "As I recall it, I first visited Memphis about four years ago. I had been with the Agricultural Adjustment Administration about six years, but I still felt that I would soon go back to my Indiana farm to take up where I left off in 1933. "Some of my impressions of my first visit to this area still are very clear. I got my first glimpse of your famous Delta and decided that it was rich as they said it was. I had my first experience with Southern hospitality also and decided that it too lived up to advance notices. "In these fast moving days, four years seem a long, long time. Four years ago at this time the South had begun to harvest a huge crop of cotton. Somehow our worries over that cotton crop seem unimportant now, just as many of the...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled To Parity Vol. I. No. 11 Co-Op Holds Annual Meet In Richmond Declaring that business monopoly must be broken up, W. G. Wysor, Richmond, general manager of Southern States Cooperative, outlined the position of agriculture in the economic world in an address delivered before approximately 2,000 delegates in attendance at the annual meeting of the cooperative at the Mosque in Richmond October 30-31. Chief among the internal "causes and forces" which he asserted are threatening the democracy of the United States he named as "the steady and quickening pace of our own government toward state capitalism and state socialism, toward a collectivistic system; the march of organized labor toward monopoly, and the monopolistic practices of business and industry." The speaker declared that if the government is allowed to continue to compete with private business, then private enterprise will be destroyed.

Market Jlettesi Once again the most important factor of the wool market were bids upon some 33 million yards of serge and shirtings which will require in the neighborhood of 100,000,000 pounds of good length Fine wool. The bids were filed with the Quartermaster General's Office on November 4 and awards made shortly thereafter. This gigantic order is said to be the last of its kind that will be forthcoming from the War Department for the remainder of the government fiscal year, ending July 1, 1942. It is expected, however, that bids will be asked shortly for overcoatings and Meltons of the woolen division. The serges and shirting? will be sufficient, it is said, to operate the worsted machin...

November 15, 1941 Convention (Continued from First Page) tion of wealth is concerned. That means that the standard of living of the American people will have been reduced, and that the entire world, to a great extent, will have been impoverished. Paying Off Debt At war's end, we will face the herculean task of paying off the debt that we are running up now. Even this year, when we have barely begun to spend on the defense effort, Federal revenues will scarcely pay two-thirds of the amount we are spending. Nearly everybody agrees that during the next two or three years the national debt will mount to astronomical figures. Present incometax rates are only a taste of what is to come, and it is quite likely that every sort of tax that has ever been heard of will be used sooner or later in an effort to pay as much of the defense bill as possible. Facing such a situation, the temptation to succumb to inflation is tremendous. The Farm Bureau has set a wholesome example to all other groups ...

The Committee appointed at the last Board meeting has authorized the State Federation to participate in the expenses of the delegates attending the Convention. Members interested in attending the Convention should contact their president, secretary, or members of their board of directors for details. It is expected that there will be enough going from Virginia to justify chartering a special railroad car. If the party goes by special car it will probably leave over the C. & O.

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled To Parity Vol. I. No. 12 Stabilized National Economy Is Urged Ways To Help In Emergency Are Outlined Measures which farmers may take to assist in the national emergency were outlined in a radio address by Secretary of Agriculture Claude Wickard to the AF BF annual convention in Chicago. "The first job for farmers and workers in the agricultural agencies is to rush the farm sign-ups and get the reports completed, as nearly completed as possible—and sent to state headquarters," Wickard asserted. "It is essential that we have the state reports here in Washington as soon as possible. All of us must do our best to reach the goals. Labor will be scarce in some sections; farm machinery will be scarce and so will fertilizers and spraying materials and other essentials. It would be an offense against national safety to waste any of these scarce things on producing farm products that are not needed. This is a time to work together as if the United States were one...

Mies, President of the Associated Women of the American Farm Bureau Federation, in her annual message to the national convention. "We also must feel a vital need to assist in writing the peace," she continued.

's Market Letter The story of letting contracts for the 33 million jiards of serge and shirting, to which we referred in the last issue of the Wool Clip, is the most absorbing topic on Summer Street. Indeed it is the most important market factor that has taken place since our issue of October 30. Involving as it does the use of some 100 million pounds of grease wool, it is important to secure so far as possible the use of domestic wool in these contracts. When the bids were received by the Quartermaster General's office on November 4, it developed that very few mills had placed their bids on a basis of using 100 per cent domestic wool. Sufficient bids were found upon a 50 per cent domestic and 50 per cent foreign basis to per...

December IS, 1941 Farmers Rally Behind President In War Crisis Unity Called For By Long United States farmers today have an opportunity to render great service to their country in time of grave national emergency, Assistant Secretary of State Breckinridge Long told delegates to the AFBF convention in urging the group to keep "that pioneer spirit which has been a proud tradition of our people." "You are confronted with the difficult task of rapidly expanding your output of farm products which are most needed at this time, particularly the concentrated foodstuffs," he said. "The farmer's task is not an easy one. Difficulties of obtaining adequate supplies of labor, of machinery, of fertilizers and other obstacles greatly conplicate the task. "However, plans are now going forward for increasing supplies of essential foods, not only for sustaining the war effort but also to meet the immediate postwar needs of the countries which have been overrun and devastated by war.
