Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 8, No. 9 400 Expected at Annual Meeting, November 3, 4 ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Reorganization Winning Wide Support Among Counties Cumberland First to Back New Program More than half of the county Farm Bureaus in Virginia, representing a majority of the VFBF's total membership, have approved at special membership meetings a plan of reorganization which includes the organization of an insurance company and the increase of annual membership dues to $10 per year. With all of the counties scheduled to have membership meetings by the first part of October, no county yet has voted down the reorganization proposals. The action in each county has indicated that members felt there would be no great difficulty in securing their quota of charter members of the insurance company, as well as their part of the funds needed foe the capitalization of this company. The company will start off with the writing of automobile insurance only. Cumberland was t...

October, 1949 Tobacco Research Official Cites High Tax On Leaf "The most amazing, almost incredible fact about tobacco taxes is that they total more than twice the aggregate amount the growers receive for their leaf tobacco", says Joseph Kdlodny, who has been officially elected President of the National Tobacco Tax Research Council, an organization recently formed for the purpose of enlighten- ing the American public regard-' ing the far-reaching effects of the virtual stampede to saddle tobacco products with an unconscionable burden of Federal, State and Municiple taxes. "Combined 1948 Federal and State tobacco taxes exceeded $1,800,000,000 whereas the aggregate revenue to tobacco growers was in the neighborhood of $900,000,000," Mr. Kolodny declares. "Another exceedingly interesting fact is that the tax yield from tobacco products represents more than 60% of the total retail sales of tobacco products. This means that more than three-fifths of the consumer's dollar spent for tobacc...

4 Wilson (Continued from page 2) the poll tax problem, he believes that the poll tax should be abolished and therefore he is in favor of the constitutional amendment which comes up for a vote in the November election. Slate Constitution: Mr. Johnson has called for a constitutional convention to revise the charter of the Commonwealth. His principal criticism of this document is that it allows two broad powers to such state agencies as the Highway Commission, the ABC Board, and the State Corporation Commission. He says that these are vested not only with executive but also with legislative and judicial prerogatives and that such grants of power are excessive and not in the best interest of the public welfare. Mr. Battle has not indicated that he has found fault with the State Constitution as it is now written. Appointive Officers: Mr. Johnson wishes to extend the power of the electorate in the selection of the numerous officials who are now subject to appointment. He desires the popul...

October, 1949 Lower Prices Are Foreseen For Consumer Lower prices for most items on the consumers' table this Fall are foreseen by Dr. J. L. Maxton, marketing specialist at V.P.I. There will be more meat, particularly from hogs and cattle, and this may lead to somewhat lower prices for competing meats such as veal, lamb, and mutton, Maxton believes. Cold storage stocks of fish are up 11 percent from last year, and retail prices are likely to continue at a lower level. Heavy hog marketings also are expected to cause a decline in chicken and turkey prices. Large supplies of chickens and turkeys also will be a factor. Eggs probably will show a small seasonal price rise up to about the middle of October. On other commodities, this is what Maxton sees coming: There will be further declines in fat and oil prices unless new markets are found. Lower butter prices already have resulted in increased butter consumption, and a corresponding 9 percent decrease in oleomargarine consumption for th...

6 90% Parity Established For '49 Corn The USDA has announced that 1949-crop corn will be supported by the Commodity Credit Corporation at 90 per cent of the corn parity price as of Oct. 1, by farms,torage and warehouse-storage loans and through purchase agreements. In general, loans and purchase agreements will be available from time of harvest through May 31, 1950, and will mature on July 31, 1950. Producers who elect to deliver corn under a purchase agreement must notify their county conservation committee within 30 days before maturitv. In areas where producers cannot store corn safely for the full storage period because of climatic conditions, insect infestation, or other factors, the loans and purchase agreements will be available from time of harvest through a date earlier than May 31, 1950, as may be determined bv State PMA committees. In these instances, the delivery dates for farm storage loans and purchase agreements also may be advanced, but no advance will be made in del...

October, 1949 Truck Crop Prices Drop Dwindling profits in 1949 for truck crop farmers are foreseen by Dr. J. L. Maxton, marketing specialist at V.P.I. Already this year prices of truck crops have dropped 18 percent from a year earlier. However, there are a few things farmers can do, Dr. Maxton says. Develop a source of irrigation water, and start irrigating for Rivers of grass... "Rivers of grass" flow across this country. Millions of cattle and lambs have spent the spring and summer turning grass into meat. Now they are ready for round-up and shipment. So in October they move to the markets —in a great flood of livestock. Many go direct from the range to meat-packing plants. Others go to the feed lots to be grain-finished. But, either way, these meat animals are mostly grass—which folks cannot eat —converted into appetizing, nourishing meat for people. They are adding greatly to the health and wealth of the nation. Without this "livestock economy," in which you and we are engaged, ...

8 Automatic Heater May Solve Tobacco Firing Problem The answer to the tobacco grower's all-night-firing problem may be an automatic wood-burning furnace developed by the U. S. Forest Service, believes J. W. O'Byrne, forester at V.P.I. O'Byrne explains that the furnace is controlled by a thermostat and holds the required temperature overnight. He believes the furnace may reopen an outlet for low grade trees, now largely wasted on Virginia farms. The furnace may also be equipped with a sawdust hopper. O'Byrne says the farmers' dislike for staying up nights to stoke old style wood-burning tobacco barn furnaces led many of them to turn to coal and oil. Still, he points out, most tobacco growers have plenty of wood on their farms, and that wood costs "nothing but some slack season labor." Both types of furnace, sawdust and wood, have been tested under farm conditions and found satisfactory. They are expected to be on the market in time for the 1950 curing season. Year's Goal Reached In S...

November, 1949 VFBF Members Take State and Southern Farm Honors R. S. Stevens Is South's 'Star Farmer' A 19-year old member of the Campbell County Farm Bureau last month was named "Star Farmer of the South" in a colorful ceremony at the national convention of the Future Farmers of America held in Kansas City, Mo. The award went to Robert Samuel Stevens, Jr., of Rustburg, who is married and the proud father of two children. Stevens, who five years ago was thinking about becoming a lawyer, was the first Virginian to receive an FFA Star Farmer award since 1938, when Hunter Greenlaw of Fredericksburg, was tapped as Star Farmer of America. That year marked the second successive time the top national title had gone to a Virginian. Robert Lee Bristow, of Saluda, copped the honor in 1937. Five years ago Bobby Stevens was 14, and there was a little while left to change his mind about the law. But, a high school sophomore, he was* taking only the usual academic courses here at the time, J. R....

November, 1949 Farm Real Estate Prices Moving Downward In State The downward trend in farm real estate prices, which has been evident in the western states, came east this spring, says Dr. Harry Love, head of the agricultural economics department at V.P.I.

To Omaha, Kansas City, St. Louis— to Ft. Worth, and Denver and Chicago—to hundreds of other markets. But no matter whether they come to local markets or larger central markets—no matter in how great numbers— there's a demand and a buyer for every single head. In every livestock market, there is keen buying competition. Omaha, for example, has 14 meatpacking plants. They have buyers in the Omaha yards. They bid against one another. But do those packer-buyers "have it all their own way"? Not on your life! Last year buyers...

November, 1949 Roanoke Times Lauds Ya. Tech for Service to Virginians Newspaper Editorially Praises V.P.I. {From the Roanoke Times for September 25, 1949) Virginia Tech has shown such phenomenal growth in the past seven years that its enrollment now approximates that of the University of Virginia, previously the largest institution of higher learning in the State. This rapid increase in the Tech student body has created housing and accommodation problems which, taken as a whole, surpass in scope those of any other State-supported college in Virginia. Virginia Tech, whose development plans a few years ago called for around 3,000 students, has literally outgrown its physical plant, this despite extensive capital outlays in the past 15 years. Its current enrollment of 4,800 students —only slight drop from last year's postwar peak of 5,050 —accounts for the rather startling requests made recently for additional State assistance. Virginia Tech's projected budget for maintenartce and oper...

8 Virginia Tech . {Continued from page 7) of other State-supported institutions, it is reasonable to say that Virginia Tech is currently rendering the greatest service to the greatest number of Virginia students. It is training all the agricultural students going to college in Virginia and about 80 per cent of the approximately 2,800 Virginians enrolled in engineering courses at State institutions. In view of the contribution Tech is making toward educating Virginians, the school's requests for further State aid do not appear excessive. Especially is this true when the appropriations alloted to other State-owned colleges are considered in relation to Tech's. At all of the State-operated institutions, the taxpayers of Virginia are being called upon to subsidize the educations of hundreds of young people from outside the State. While we do not advocate closing Virginia-owned colleges to outsiders, it does seem that the bulk of the money available for higher education should go to that...
