Let us not for a moment fool ourselves with the idea that we can maintain the legislative power of our Farm Bureau if we "make hay" or "go fishing" on election day and let others do the voting.

4 Robertson Warns of Trend Awayfrom Farm To make farming a more satisfactory manner of life is the "farm problem which has not been solved," Sen. A. Willis Robertson of Virginia told the U. S. Senate during debate on the Aiken bill in the 80th session of Congress. "For more than half a century the trend has been away from the farm to the big industrial centers," he said. "Agriculture is so vital to the future of this nation that we cannot afford to keep losing our brightest and most energetic boys and girls because farm life Let's Weigh the Evidence Your scales can be a valuable ally to your judging eye! For years livestock breeders have kept weight and performance records, as well as pedigrees. Now many commercial producers are taking a tip from them.

October, 1948 Kline Urges PB Programs for UN Day AFBF President Allen B. Kline has asked Farm Bureau members throughout the nation to cooperate fully in the observance of United Nations Day on October 24. In a special president's message, Mr. Kline said FB members can assist by helping to organize local citizen committees to plan com-munity-wide observances. "In addition," he said, "it would be appropriate for each local Farm Bureau unit to plan a special program for one of its meetings near that date to consider objectives, activities, and progress." "United Nations Day gives the peoples of the world a fresh opportunity to rededicate themselves to the basic objectives of the United Nations and to use their influence to make it work more effectively," he declared. Mr. Kline was one of the consultants to the U. S. delegation at the San Francisco meeting at which the UN was established in 1945.

November, 1948 Maxton Sees price Drops By Next Year j. L. Maxton, agricultural economist for the Virginia Extension Service, outlined two courses of action for State farmers in a Columbus Day address before the Appomattox County Farm Bureau. In view of expected agricultural economic developments, the farmer should "do a better job on his own farm" and should "be an active member in one or more national farm organizations, and in any local organization which i<? advantageous to him in buying and selling," the economist said. Mr. Maxton predicted a further weakening of grain prices toward support levels of 90 per cent of parity. He forecast a decline in prices for broilers, chickens, hogs and dairy products. "The year 1949," he declared, "may be expected to be a year of downward price adjustments for many products and a year of improvements in efficiencies of production." Exhorting the Appomattox FB members to "know this and know it well," he said: "First, do all you can wi...
