Pointing to Great Britain's price controls Mr. Kline observed, "You can hide inflation that way, but you have still got it." He warned against the "worldwide movement toward the delusion of security by law." And, he declared, with this trend a depression will bring complete Government control, not only to the farmer but to the banker, the merchant, everybody. Mr. Kline was introduced by Dr. Walter S. Newman, president of VPI, as "one of the great contemporary Americans" in pointing to his rise from a tenant farmer to a farm leader. Dr. Newman called on farmers to continue to give to Mr. Kline the support he will need "to chart the future of rural life in America."

Here is the complete text of the resolutions: ~ t I Price Supports We believe the basic principle embodied in the Agricultural Act of 1949 to be sound. With efficient and business like administration this legislation will provide the essential machinery which farmers may use in giving their business the same economic stability enjoyed by non-farm groups, without undue expenditure of public funds. At the same time the Act is sufficiently flexible to permit farmers to make any gradual changes in their production operations which may seem desirable as we move ahead. It is our desire...

4 Resolutions (Continued from page 1) of our individual talents for our own good and for the good of others. That our system is the best yet devised by the mind of mortal man is evidenced by the fact that the people of the United States, numbering approximately 6% of the world's total population are now producing better than 40% of the world's total in goods and services and have attained standards of living which are the envy of all nations. Many of our national leaders now have very grave doubts as to whether or not either our form of government or our economic system will survive unless effective steps are soon taken to curtail federal expenditures, balance the budget and begin now, during a period of high income, to reduce the national debt which has reached the staggering total of 256 billion dollars! It is unthinkable that we should endanger our priceless heritage by continuing to spend money which we don't have, on projects of questionable value. Only three courses are now op...

Minton (seated), who welcomed delegates to the VFBF convention. Aggressive Steps Urged For Economic Stability Aggressive steps should be taken in the monetary, credit, and fiscal policy fields to add greater stability to the general economy and general price level, Allan B. Kline, AFBF President, pointed out in testifying last month before a subcommittee of the Joint Committee on the Economic Report. The subcommittee, headed by Sen. Paul Douglas (D.-Ill.) is considering fiscal, monetary, and credit policies. Mr. Kline stated that the problem is not one of delegating additional authority to the Federal Government in new areas, but one of reshaping and coordinating policies in the fields in which Government policy now largely prevails so that they will more definitely contribute to a more stable price level. "Many in this generation have experienced ...

6 694 Farms Hit 100 Bu. Corn Level At least 694 farms in Virginia produced 100 bushels of corn per acre last year—with a Warren County farmer topping the State with 179 bushels, P. H. DeHart, Extension agronomist at V.P.1., announces. Name of the farmer in Warren was to be announced after a meeting of the County Corn Club. The 694 figure is based on reports from 78 of the 94 counties participating in the 100-bushel corn club program. The average yield on 2,099 farms checked in the 78 counties was over 91 bushels per acre. A total of 4,796 farmers took part in the program this year, compared to about 1,200 last year. Yield checks on 700 farms in 1948 showed an average of 89 bushels per acre. Not all counties have yet reported, and 551 Negro farmers also have not been heard from. The program is designed to bring about a "vertical increase" in State corn production—that is, more corn on less acres. DeHart said, "The enthusiasm and interest this year was ten times greater than last year...

January, 1950 Soft-Shelled Eggs Caused by Deficiencies Of Calcium, Vitamin D Feed deficiencies may be to blame when hens lay soft-shelled eggs. H. L. Moore, head of the V.P.I, poultry department says that the soft shells may be caused when birds do not get enough calcium from oyster shell or limestone in their feed. Normally, mash contains some calcium, and calcium also is provided to a lesser extent in animal The miracle of meat All of us in the livestock-meat industry know that meat is appetizing, wholesome, satisfying. "It sticks to the ribs." People like it. But perhaps we don't all realize just what a miracle food meat really is. We know it's good—but do we know how good it is for people . . . how important to the health of individuals, to the health of the nation? If you feed livestock or poultry you know the importance of protein in their ration. It's just as important in the human diet. Proteins are known as the building blocks of the body.

8 AFBF Story Is Featured In Magazine The December issue of The Country Gentleman, national agricultural publication with more than two million subscribers, featured a lengthy, illustrated article about the American Farm Bureau Federation and President Allan B. Kline, who is described as "the Farm Bureau's fighting man." Written by Katharine and Henry B. Pringle, Country Gentleman staff members, the article stresses the Farm Bureau opposition to the Brannan plan, which Kline is quoted as saying, "means the end of free enterprise in the United States. It spells regimentation in agriculture. We want appropriate price supports, but we don't want farmers entirely dependent on government." Other statements attributed to Kline include: "The most important agricultural program in the United States is concerned with questions outside agriculture, and is primarily concerned with high production per man in the rest of the economy and a well-distributed real income. Given that, the people will ...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 9, No. 1 VFBF Occupies New Office Close to State Capitol The new location of the State offices of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation is 401 Lyric Building, Richmond. Removal of the offices from Harrisonburg was accomplished the first week of January. The location of the offices in the capital city has been hailed by President H. G. Blalock as a move which will reduce operating ex- penses and increase the effectiveness" of the work of the Federation. He said, "Since the majority of farm organization meetings are held in Richmond and since more farm leaders come to the capital during the course of the year than other cities in Virginia, having our office in Richmond is expected to materially reduce the expense and time of attending many meetings and to greatly increase our effectiveness. The new location of the office will also bring us in closer contact with many farm leaders." The new offices, situated on the fourth floor of the Lyric Bu...

February, 1950 Let's Talk Turkey About This Threat To Your Welfare Some time ago the anti-trust lawyers from Washington brought suit to put A&P out of business. They asked the court to order us to break up our stores-into seven groups and sell each group to new owners; to sell our factories to still other new owners; to disband the Atlantic Commission Company; and to close all our central buying offices, including the National Meat Department, 4 the National Dairy Department and the National Egg and Poultry Department. Since that time, hundreds of thousands of farmers, as individuals and through their organizations, have been adopting resolutions, writing letters and running ads expressing their opposition to this suit. The Farm Bureau Federation, at its recent annual convention in Chicago, adopted a resolution that did not specifically refer to the A&P suit, but condemned current interpretations of the antitrust laws. The resolution said in part: "Regulation...

8 Poultrymen May Face Price Drop Dr. Harry Love, head of the agricultural economics department at V.P.1., has predicted that prices received by farmers for eggs and poultry meat this year probably will average less than in 1949. As a result, the gross farm value of poultry and egg products will decline. Dr. Love believes that— Egg production during the first six to eight months of 1950 likely will be from three to four per cent above the same period in 1949. Egg prices in the first half of 1950 may be 10 to 15 per cent below those of 1949 unless support prices prevent the drop. Supports seem unlikely, since they are discretionary between 0 and 90 per cent of parity. % The supply of broilers, plus frozen poultry, likely will be enough to keep prices from rising much during the first three to four months of 1950. If egg prices slip as expected, enough laying hens may be moving to market as culls by March and April to keep poultry meat prices from rising during spring and early summer....
