4 Fleming Calls On Industry To Join Agriculture's Fight For Price Stabilization LOUISVILLE, KY.— (Special)— Citing "abundance rather than scarcity" as the farmers' philosophy, Roger Fleming, director of the Washington, D. C., Farm Bureau office, has called upon business and industry to join farmers in seeking to stabilize production and price levels—or face the question whether American democracy can survive. Speaking at a farmer-business-man meeting here, Fleming also appealed for immediate steps "to correlate somehow our Government policies in the fields of taxation, governmental spending, debt management and other phases of fiscal policy" as a means of giving stability to general price levels rather than accentuating swings in the business cycle. "Farmers are interested in saving the free enterprise system," Fleming said. "They would like to have it considerably more free and considerably more enterprising." Calls for Committee Fleming prefaced his talk on "A Support Price Progra...

May, 1949 WHAT'S AND WHY'S . OF WOMEN B r C. P. DeShazo Recently a secretary of a County Farm Bureau was asked to write a brief statement as to what Farm Bureau was. This secretary asked me to do it, because he said he did not know. How, in mercy's name, can we support an organization if we do not know the definition or the purpose of that group? Perhaps this is one of the greatest contribu-" tions the A.W. can make to our VFBF. Perhaps if we learn about our Farm Bureau and become the missionaries who teach the men folk about it, we can be the most vital cogs in the wheel. And, believe me, it is going to be the most important part of the job of changing from our status quo to the new and improved organization which we feel is essential. So let us start now with our simple, but essential, task of letting the State know what we are and why. The Farm Bureau is an organization of farmers, entirely free of any governmental connection, whose Eurpose is to improve the tgislative, economic ...

6 Revolutionary Farm Program Is Proposed By Brannan (Continued, from page 1) ence and prevailing circumstances warrant. Support Conditions 4. Conditions of support —Participation of farmers would require (a) the observance of "minimum and sound soil conservation practices"; (b) compliance with or adoption of whatever programs are, found necessary to curtail wasteful production or disorderly marketing, such measures as acreage allotments, marketing quotas and marketing agreements which may be adopted "from time to time through referendums or by the authority of the Secretary under terms of specific legislation"; (c) the limitation of eligibility for price support to a defined volume of production on each farm, a volume "high enough . . . but which would not encourage the development of extremely large, industrialized farming." 5. Income and price support standards —As a starting base, take the annual purchasing power of cash receipts for the years 1939 through 1948. This purchasing p...

8 Maxton Predicts Farm Costs Will Decline Less Rapidly Than Prices During 1949 J. L. Maxton, agricultural economist with the Extension Service, has predicted that farm costs will decline less than farm prices during 1949, and "it is highly probable that most farmers will find tWfc net income less in 1949 than last year." In special correspondence with the Farm Bureau News, however, Mr. Maxton said "farmers who have materially increased their efficiency should improve their financial position in 1949." Farm costs and cost rates generally lag behind farm prices and incomes when prices advance or decline, Mr. Maxton pointed out. Round-Up Here is the Bureau of Agricultural Economics' round-up of expected farm costs in 1949 as released to this newspaper by Mr. Maxton: In general, farm costs and cost rates lag behind farm prices and incomes when prices advance or decline. Thus, farm costs are expected to decline less than farm prices in 1949 and it is highly probable most farmers will fin...

June, 1949 WHAT'S AND WHY'S OF WOMEN By Catherine P. DeShazo During the past month it has been my privilege to attend many meetings at local, state and national levels. From each I have gained far more than I have been able to contribute. I wish there were time and space to tell you of all, but there are two that I feel will interest you most. The third is written up in a full story to it- self. This, of course, is the brand" new chapter of A.W. formed in King George County. All of us are so happy to have this new chapter and wish these women all luck and much growth. First I want to tell of the Virginia Conference of Social Work which I attended in Roanoke. This is one of the inter-group types of organizations that accomplish so much in understanding. Social workers, welfare organizations, individuals with a sincere interest in the wellbeing of their fellow-beings, and college and state leaders all belong to the great Conference. All meet in separate sections to discuss their parti...

4 County FB's Quick to Rap Brannan Plan Pittsylvania and Spotsylvania County Farm Bureaus were among the first in Virginia to reject Secretary of Agriculture Brannan's price-support program. Meeting in annual session, Spotsylvania voted overwhelmingly, 74 to 1, against the plan. H. G. Blalock. president of the VFBF, told the group that the Brannan plan would "regiment" American farmers. The Pittsylvania FB in formal resolution petitioned Virginia members of Congress "to use their every influence to defeat the proposed socialistic plan of Secretary of Agriculture Brannan." The resolution said that under the Brannan plan, "American farmers and their farms would he placed on a dole system and under a regimentation of control that would be a mockery in a democracy, and which would make the farmer utterly dependent upon government, as well as using billions of taxpayers' money to make the farmer politically beholden to the dictates of politicians." Directors (Continued from page 1 ) with...

June, 1949 Are 6 Spies 9 At Work? Governors Tuck and Scott Predict 'Corn War' Victory Victory in the "Corn War" between North Carolina and Virginia has been confidently predicted by the respective governors of both States. Said W. Kerr Scott, Governor of North Carolina— "Anyone who challenges the people of North Carolina is really sticking his neck out. North Carolinians usually go quietly ahead with their work and leave the bragging to the other States. But when they are challenged, they know how to respond." Said William M. Tuck, Governor of Virginia— "The enthusiasm of the farmers of Virginia leaves little doubt as to the outcome. Virginians aren't worried, for the experience of the past few years has taught them that they know how to grow corn." The winner will be the State which shows this year the greatest increase in yield of corn per acre. The contest came about when Gov. Tuck challenged Gov. Scott and his Tar Heels to the competition. With the rival States demonstrating gre...

6 Appropriations for USDA Recommended by AFBF Several recommendations for increasing the U. S. Department of Agriculture's effectiveness in serving the Nation's farmers were made by the American Farm Bureau Federation at a Senate hearing on the 1950 agricultural appropriation bill. In a statement presented to the Senate Appropriations Agricultural Subcommittee by Donald Parel of" the AFBF Washington Office, Farm Bureau recommended: 1. A direct appropriation of $90,000,000 for the school-lunch program. (The House-passed bill provides $75,000,000 as a direct appropriation for this program.) 2. Funds for the Bureau of Animal Industry to begin construction of a laboratory to study foot-and-mouth disease, such laboratory to be built on an island as a safeguard against spread of the disease. 3. An additional appropriation for the USDA Market News Service because failure of the present service to report the poultry and egg market adequately is "literally costing poultry producers millions ...

This is the program in brief: 1. The 1950 Goal of 1,500,000 members is the heart of the programe. This goal must be reached twice by both counties and states before an award is available. It is understood that a state or county which reaches this goal for the first time in 1950 will have an opportunity to reach it again in 1951 so as to become eligible for the award. Counties will receive $25.00 in expense money, and states a certificate of award. 2. A 2,000,000-member goal for the more advanced counties and states has also been established. There are a number of states and several hundred counties over the nation that are capable of reaching their share of the 2,000,000-mem-ber goal. States and counties which reach their 2,000,000-mem-ber goals twice will be eligible for recognition. The counties will rec...

8 Southern FB Leaders Favor Rural Roads Program Giving Increased Control to States Three Southern Farm Bureau leaders—Ransom Aldrich of Mississippi, Clyde Bonar of West Virginia, and John I. Taylor of Oklahoma —testified before a Senate public works subcommittee on April 25 on rural roads. Favoring the Stennis-Young Rural Roads bill (S. 244), these Farm Bureau leaders also spoke up for S. 1471, a bill similar to the Sten-nis-Young measure but seeking a larger appropriation for rural roads than is asked by S. 244. On behalf of the American Farm Bureau Federation, Mr. Aldrich read a prepared statement. Then he and Mr. Bonar and Mr. Taylor spoke on road conditions in their respective states. Summary of S. 244 (S. 244 would create within the Public Roads Administration a rural roads division which would cooperate with State and local agencies in construction of local rural roads. The bill would authorize $100,000,000, beginning July 1, 1950, for rural roads, apportioned on the basis of ...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 8, No. 6 'Insiders' Say Brannan Plan Is 'Dead Duck' Gordon H. Allen, of the American Farm Bureau Federation's Information Department, reports that Washington's "inside information circles," generally believe that the .Brannan farm plan is a "dead duck." In the weekly version of his column "Straight from Washington," Allen says these "inside" sol x:es believe the Secretary of Agriculture's plan is "being shunned or given the cold-shoulder treatment by many of the congressional coterie regarded as 'administration stalwarts.' " Allen said one Washington commentator has pointed out that even President Truman seems to have left Secretary Brannan "holding the bag" with his revolutionary farm program. "As of now," asserts Allen, "the Secretary appears to be carrying the ball by himself, as well as running his own interference." Both the AFBF and the directors of the VFBF have vigorously opposed the Brannan Plan. The Virginia FB is on record, alo...

4 Poultry Outlook Is Bright If Marketing Weaknesses Are Corrected, Says Alp The poultry industry can afford to be optimistic about the future because of untapped possibilities for increasing consumption, "but these possibilities will depend more on what we do in marketing than on what we do in production," according to H. H. Alp, director of the poultry department of the American Farm Bureau Federation. In a speech to the Massachusetts Federation of Poultry Associations meeting at Worcester, Mass., last month, Alp called attention to weaknesses in the present marketing system which stand in the way of poultry industry progress. Inadequate Reporting Among these is inadequate poultry market reporting by the Department of Agriculture, he said. "As a result, market prices frequently fail to reflect true values to either the producer or the consumer." The Farm Bureau is working for an increase of $150,000 in the appropriation for the USDA Market News Service, Alp told the group. He added...
