July, 1949 Straight from Washington By Gordon H. Allen (AFBF Information Dept. The United States Senate has just taken a step long sought by those who regard a stabilized monetary system as of first importance to the prosperity of this country — and the American Farm Bureau Federation is one of those advocates of the Senate's action. Without fanfare or much discussion, the Senate passed and sent to the House a bill (S. 1559 by Maybank and Tobey) which would establish a bipartisan commission of 18 members to make an exhaustive study of the nation's banking and currency problems and submit recommendations to Congress for improvements. The AFBF has regarded such action as vital to the attainment of the national objective of stable economic progress. At its last national convention, on Dec. 16, 1948, the AFBF went on record thusly: "We urge Congress to establish a bipartisan joint congressional monetary study commission, charged with the responsibility of making studies and submitting r...

6 Food Bill For City Families Requires 32% Of Income, USD A Survey Discloses American city families spent an average of $25.57 a week for food or 32 per cent of their total weekly income in the spring of 1948, reports the Bureau of Human Nutrition and Home Economics, U. S. Department of Agriculture, from a survey of 1,600 households in 68 cities, large and small. The survey is part of a broader study which will furnish the most detailed record of family food habits in urban areas since the end of the war. The survey shows that a larger part of income went for food in 1948 than in 1942 when comparable data were gathered. In 1942, urban families averaged $14.23 for food or 26 per cent of their weekly income. The bigger postwar food bills have gone partly into higher prices, partly into larger purchases. Higher consumption of such foods as milk, fruits, and vegetables— including citrus fruit and tomatoes —eggs, and meat, poultry, and fish indicate that the family's food money bought be...

July, 1949 Indiana FB Leader Asserts U. S. Must Seek New 'Normal' Normalcy, as this country knew it 10, 15 and 20 years ago, is not only a present-day impossibility, "but it would be castastrophic and we wouldn't want it if we could have it." America has no alternative but to go "forward to a new normal." With those thoughts as the core of his message, Hassil E. Schenck, president of the Indiana Farm" Bureau and a member of the AFBF executive committee, delivered a hard-hitting speech in Washington before a luncheonmeeting of the board of directors of the National Canners Association. Ten years ago the entire national income per year was under 100 billion dollars, Schenck declared, and the Federal government budget was less than half of today's 40-odd billion-dollar level. Today this nation doesn't dare think of allowing the national income to drop below a $200-billion level. With the national debt standing at more than $250-billion, we have no choice but to seek a new normalcy wher...

August, 1949 Poultry Group Honors VFBF Past President Howard S. Zigler, president last year of the VFBF, was honored for "his great contribution to the poultry industry" at the annual Summer meeting of the Virginia State Poultry Federation in Timberville, July 13. In a talk prior to presenting Mr. Zigler with a set of silver knives and forks, Mayor Ralph Hoover of Timberville praised the former VFBF head as "one who is and has been a friend to all poultrymen." Mr. Zigler is a former president of the poultry group. Mayor Hoover pointed out that it was Mr. Zigler's idea that, re- ijjp. : ''¥p Howard S.

4 WHAT'S & WHY'S OF WOMEN It has been with real regret that we have not been able to have this short visit with you for the past issues. Unfortunately, time is the most elusive thing in this world and I have been so rushed that I have had to omit much that was very important. Elsewhere on this page you will find the President's report for the past few months. Perhaps after you read that you will forgive me. * * * There have been two very important meetings in the past month that I am anxious to discuss with you. First I want to tell you a little about my experience at the AFBF Board meeting. Secondly, I want to explain a little about the Training School in Georgia. To us, the most immediate result of the AW, AFBF Board meeting deals with the national project which was selected by the voting delegates at our annual convention last winter in Atlantic City. This is a project to bring to the United States four women from Germany to see how we live in the rural sections of th...

August, 1949 AFBF Spokesman Scores Compulsory Health Program Need for compulsory national health legislation hasn't been proved, the American people haven't said they want it, and such a program would be prohibitive in cost, Emmet Slusher, president of the Missouri Farm Bureau, has told a Senate subcommittee. Representing AFBF, Slusher appeared before the Murray subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Education and Labor. He emphasized that "no country operating under a compulsory health program has as high a health standard as has this country." AFBF Stand Cited He reiterated AFBF's stand in favor of voluntary health programs, and noted that 55 million Americans now are covered under such systems. "We believe these established and successfully operating plans would go out of existence with the enactment of Federal legislation setting up a tax system for the support of a national health insurance program," Slusher said. He pointed out that: "Farm people realize the necessity for rur...

Augu#, 1949. FB's Throughout Nation Oppose Brannan Plan State Farm Bureau groups throughout the nation are lining up behind the American Farm Bureau Federation in opposing the Brannan farm program. In many instances, the State groups have gone on record as supporting the Agricultural Act of 1948. The Board of Directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation indicated their disapproval of the Brannan proposal shortly after the Secretary of Agriculture introduced his revolutionary farm plan. Here are scattered reports from other States concerning action on the Brannan proposal: IV. Y. Group Opposes Brannan Plan The New York State Conference Board of Farm Organizations went on record as "strongly opposed" to the Brannan plan. The Conference Board, composed of eight statewide farm groups, was unanimous in expressing the belief that "the plan is not to the best interest of either consumers or farmers." The Board registered these major objections: 1. The plan proposes to center complete c...

9 Wire Screens Essential In Fly Control Well-screened windows and doors are a big item in keeping down the fly population on the farm and in the home, says C. D. Wheary, rural housing specialist at V.P.I. Wheary believes that few people realize the importance of shopping wisely foj the right type of wire screening. Here are a few important things to remember, as seen by Wheary, when you go shopping: Consider the conditions under which the screens will be used. Salt sea air along the coast makes it necessary to use bronze or copper screening. Farther inland, galvanized or painted steel screening, if cared for properly, is satisfactory. A screen door which gets hard use should have heavier wire in it than is necessary for windows. If heavy gauge screening is not available, protect the lower panel of the screen door with -wire cloth or a metal grill. Rigidity or stiffness is an important thing to look for in screening. Stiff screening is easier to cut, fit into frames and fasten, and w...

September, 1949 WHAT'S & WHY'S OF WOMEN Most of us have been concerned with the question of reorganization of the VFBF during the past month. Some of you have wondered just what this would mean. To some, the ten dollar membership fee seems a little high. To others it is still too low. Let us consider this for a few minutes, because if Friend Husband puts ten dollars into Farm Bureau membership next year we, the wives, will have exactly that much less to spend on the family needs. Therefore we want to know why increase this amount just as clearly as do the men. We probably will leave the final decision up to the menfolk, but we want to understand it and be able to discuss it with them. First, let us understand that the new fee will be collectible at the next annual membership drive of your county. That means that in many counties the dues will not be increased before this time next year if this goes into effect. In other words if your county dues are paid before November ...

September, 1949 AFBF Head, Speaking At VPI, Says Farmers Seek Maximum Freedom In Their Operations Allan B. Kline, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, in an address at the Institute of Rural Affairs at VPI last month, declared that farmers want a maximum of freedom in their operations, along with a certain amount of protection against disastrously low prices. They reject paternalistic farm programs which hold out the lure of apparently high guarantees while hampering restrictions on opportunity, Mr. Kline told 1,500 delegates attending the sixteenth annual institute. Individual Ig Key "The major requirement for farm prosperity," Mr. Kline said, "is high production per man throughout our entire economy and well distributed real income. Within this framework, the individual farmer is the key to a healthy agriculture. The efficiency of his production and marketing operations will tell the real story. His ability to produce high quality products in accordance with consumer ...

8 New Price Support Proposal Incorporates AFBF Ideas A bipartisan farm price support bill drafted by a Senate agriculture subcommittee headed by Sen. Clinton P. Anderson of New Mexico would modify some of the features of the Agricultural Act of 1948, preserve other provisions of that Act, and cautiously permit the use of production payments as a method of support for wool, mohair, tung nuts and non-storable potatoes. Provision is made for supports on basic agricultural commodities ranging from 75 to 90 percent of parity, as recommended by the American Farm Bureau Federation. The bill gears in the support on corn, wheat, and rice at 102 percent of normal supply and gears in cotton and peanuts at 108 percent of normal, also as recommended by AFBF. It provides that, notwithstanding the support schedule, the level of support shall be 90 percent of parity the first year that marketing quotas or acreage allotments are in effect after a lapse of one or more years when such controls were no...
