March, 1950 Cooperatives Are Defended By Hubbard Maury A. Hubbard, VFBF executive secretary, appeared before the committee on Federal relations of the Virginia House of Delegates last month to register the VFBF's opposition to a House resolution "to memorialize Congress to enact tax equality legislation before levying additional taxes." "Through error or otherwise, Hubbard told the committee, "this resolution has been interpreted by the press as being directed at farmer cooperatives." Hubbard introduced the findings of a Congressional committee to back up his contention that farmer cooperatives are not "trying to get away with something." This report said in part: "Agriculture cooperatives which are nonexempt from Federal income tax and all consumer cooperatives apparently enjoy no privileges or advantages which the tax laws which are not available to all other types of competitive businesses." After quoting facts and figures from the Congressional committee report, Hubbard said, "t...

4 Farm Issues Are Aired For Women Journalists At Washington Session "Account consumers' interest in national farm program", telegraphed Mrs. Charles W. Sewell to a number of women journalists and representatives of women's organizations, "we are inviting small group of nationally known women to be guests of the Board of Directors. . . They came, nineteen of them, to the Raleigh Hotel in Washington, where the Board was in session, and they stayed for two solid hours after dinner, asking questions and listening to Mrs. Raymond Sayre and Allan B. Kline talk about food prices, the farm program, and allied matters. At the end, it was apparent that Mrs. Sewell's idea had paid off. It was obvious that many of the guests had a new concept of the farmer's problem, and a new slant on food prices. Food Prices Most of the questions indicated that the women thought food prices are too high, and are high because of support prices. Mrs. Sayre patiently explained that food travels a long route from...

March, 1950 Editorial Continued from page 2 realized in lowa, he saw good reason to think it would be realized in similar agricultural areas. The current farm legislation, said Mr. Kline, which is open to constant revision and improvement like anything else, differs from the Brannan Plan in that generally it is based on the "decision of the individual as to what is best for him." And he also said: 1. An expanding economy can only be a flexible price economy. The principal issue for farmers, "I am the grass... let me work" I am Let me work the miracle of changing soil and water, j sunlight and air into a liv- (| ing, growing plant.

March, 1950 USD A Hears Wool Growers' Support Plan Recommendations for a pricesupport program on wool were presented in Washington last month to the director of the livestock branch of the Department of Agriculture and to other officials of US DA. The recommendations had been drawn up by representatives of the National Wool Growers Association, National Wool Marketing Corporation, Pacific Wool Growers and the American Farm Bureau Federation at a meeting in AFBF Washington offices. The group recommended that growers be given the option to accept or reject the government appraisal price on all or any portion of their clips until the end of the past marketing year (Jan. 31). It also was recommended that when a grower's wool has been placed in approved storage and has been submitted to CCC for appraisal, the grower may elect to receive from CCC 75 per cent of its value as estimated by the handler in charge. Further, that after appraisal has been made, the grower may elect: (1) To sell t...

April, 1950 Brannan, Kline Clash In Bitter Debate On Supports Agriculture Chief Booed At National Farm Institute Des Moines, lowa—A bitter clash between Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan and Allan B. Kline, president of the American Farm Bureau, highlighted the closing session of the National Farm Institute here. What started out to be a discussion and open forum meeting on the whole farm program, with more than 4,500 farmers packing every seat, at times took on the elements of a rather sad "name calling cat and dog fight," with side remarks and charges. Brannan was heckled and booed several times as he accused the farm bureau federation of trying to force little farmers out of business for the benefit of "big scale" farmers. Kline countered by charging that the Brannan program offered "delusions of cheap food" at the same time promising high cash income to all farmers. Brewing for Some Time There has been a polite feud simmering between these two agrarian gladiators ever ...

4 IsjgMm . £ Roger B. Corbett Publicizing Farm 'Gamble' Is Urged If farm public relations could put across the "tremendous gamble" of farming, there would be a better understanding of agriculture and its problems. This statement was made in Richmond last month by Dr. Roger B. Corbett, agricultural counsel for the National Association of Food Chains. Dr. Corbett, formerly associated with the American Farm Bureau Federation, spoke at a banquet where 4-H Club leaders from the Richmond area were recognized. VFBF Executive Secretary M. A. Hubbard acted as banquet toastmaster and introduced Dr. Corbett. Dr. Corbett quoted a recent Washington speaker who said that public relations between farm and city now are bad. Corbett said he believed this is caused by farm income which now appears high. He said that high production now is giving the United States the highest standard of living of any country in the world with the possible exception of Denmark and one or two other countries. He said A...
