6 Editorial (Continued from page 2) weekly pay of factory workers was $49.29 in August of this year, as compared with $23.77 for the same month of 1939. Charles F. Brannan, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, testifying before a joint meeting of House and Senate Agriculture Committee members on Oct. 8 said: "Last year farm people netted only $620 per capita, compared per capita earnings of non-farm people of $1,326; even after deducting the cost of food, non-farm people had half again as many dollars as farm people." Certainly there in nothing in these figures to justify any campaign to beat down farm income. Instead they reveal that agriculture has not yet attained parity with other groups. The Farm Commissioners' Council sees three major obstacles to increased farm production: 1. The Farm Labor Shortage 2. The Farm Machinery Shortage 3. The Farmer's Uncertainty Over Future Government Price And Marketing Policies. Although agriculture has enjoyed a more favorable position during re...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, No. 12 Zigler And Blalock To Head VFBF Next Year 10% Increase In Freight Rates Granted Overriding the opposition of Virginia agricultural interests to an increase in intrastate railroad freight rates, the State Corporation Commission last month granted a 10 per cent increase on basic freight rates and charges but provided that the boost could not apply to rates on pulpwood, extract wood and coal. M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, was one of four witnesses who opposed the requested rate increase at a hearing before the Commission earlier in November. Mr. Hubbard was joined in opposition argument by John C. Albert, of New York, general traffic manager for the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company; H. M.

4 Farm Prices Should Stay High Senator Robertson Says Little change from the present level of farm prices is foreseen for 1948 by the Bureau of Agriculture Economics, Senator A. Willis Robertson told the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation at its convention in Richmond last month. He added that the Bureau expects that prices will He high enough generally to assure farmers a profitable return for a maximum production despite the prediction that the prices paid bv farmers will be as high or higher in 1948 than in 1947, so that the parity ratio will remain about the same. Farm prices next year may be areatlv influenced by the Marshall Plan for aid to Europe, which the senator endorsed from ''a humanitarian as well as an enlightened self-interest standpoint." In approving the program he said: "I desire to express the hope that emphasis will be placed upon the shipment of those types of food which we can best spare."

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 7, No. 1 Allan Kline Is New President Of AFBF O'Neal Urges Caution In Law Changes Food alone will not solve the problems of Europe. Those nations need help on a huge scale to rehabilitate their factories, transportation systems and even their agriculture. They must produce before they can trade with other nations. Their currencies must be stabilized. This view was expressed by Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation at its 29th annual convention in Chicago last month. Addressing members from Farm Bureaus in 45 States and Puerto Rico, Mr. O'Neal said the key to the foreign situation is production and more production of commodities and goods, and the elimination of barriers to distribution that srill exist in parts of the European area. Trade Agreements He termed the general trade agreement signed at Geneva in October as "encouraging" and said that while it is far from perfect and full of compromise, it is a start...

Maxton, agricultural economist of the Virginia Extension Service before the Franklin County Farm Bureau at their annual picnic.
