Curry Carter, George M. Cochran and Felix Edmunds, were special guests recently at a round-table discussion following a dinner meeting of the Augusta County Cooperative Farm Bureau in Staunton.

The exact language of the proposed statute in regard to tax on refunds is as follows: "No such association shall I>e regarded as non-profit under the income tax laws of this state and in computing income for tax purposes, no cash dividends, patronage dividends, or any other dividends or patronage refunds, accumulated or paid by any such association, shall be deductible; provided however, that for the privilege of marketing the farmer's crops or products including dairy products and livestock s...

4 A Strong U. N. In the distorted world in which we live two facts overshadow all others in their power to shape the future, the atom bomb and the hostility of Russia to our country. Russia views America as the one country that may prove strong enough to turn back the tide of Communism, and so block the domination of the world by the Kremlin, and America is the country that developed, first used, and still controls the atom bomb. What nation in all the range of human history has faced issues of such stupendous import? How can the tragic disaster of an atomic war be avoided ? In dread and fear of what the future may have in store for our civilization men and women everywhere are looking with longing, albeit with dwindling hope, to United Nations. The hope once lodged in United Nations is fading for good reason. It is all too obvious that a veto-ridden Security Council has already rendered United Nations well-nigh impotent. Something must be done to transform United Nations into an au...
