FBF Kline Supports Trade Pacts As Essential Declaring that the reciprocal trade program is essential to provision of satisfactory markets for farm products, President Allan Kline urged Congress to extend the program for two years, in a statement read by W.

S., by lessening the need for government trade controls. Mr. Kline recommended, however, that certain specific safeguards be incorporated in the program, to protect farmers. Pointing out that in 1947 farm output was 35 per cent above prewar, Mr. Kline said: "During the last year of the Marshall Plan, 1951-52, it is estimated that we will he export...

6 Scenic Wonders Near Roanoke ■afl Nearby Natural Bridge Is Miracle In Stone Truly a miracle in stone, the Natural Bridge of Virginia is one of the "seven natural wonders of the world." Natural Bridge is so closely associated with American tradition, history, and romance that it is a national landmark as well as a geographical curiosity. The Indians worshipped it, Thomas Jefferson was its original owner, and George Washington is believed to have surveyed it. The bridge is on Route 11, 40 miles north of Roanoke. George Washington is thought to have surveyed the N a t u r a 1 Bridge about 1750. The initials "G.W." are carved on the bridge 23 feet above Cedar Creek; also on a large stone under the arch. In 1774, Jefferson, at the age of 31, bought Natural Bridge and 157 surroundings acres from King George 111 of England for the "sum of twenty shillings of good and lawful money" (somewhat less than five dollars). In 1802, a year after his first inauguration as President of the United St...

4 Aiken Farm Bill Provokes Lively Talk at Roanoke Discussion of the long range farm program as embodied in the recently passed Aiken Bill adopted in the closing hours of Congress last month brought out the livliest interest among delegates to Southern Training School session. On Monday, Tues da y and Wednesday afternoons, under the leadership of Roger Flemming, Director of the Washington Office of the AFBF, many legislative matters were presented. In reporting on the Aiken Bill he reviewed the course of the Bill in Congress and said that the Bill enacted into law the recommendations of the AFBF Board of Directors in many instances, although the provisions with regard to poultry, cotton and tobacco were not exactly what the Farm Bureau desired. Delegates from the deep south, principally in certain cotton raising sections, stated that they felt provisions of the Bill regarding that commodity were far from satisfactory. President H. L. Wingate, of Georgia, said that his farm people des...
