6 Potato Support Plan Suggested By AFBF Expressing "serious misgivings" about marketing quotas for perishable farm commodities such as potatoes, the American Farm Bureau Federation has offered to Congress a potato support proposal which it said would "reduce the cost of the potato program to a fraction of the* 1949 outlay." . I The recommendations were contained in a letter sent by AFBF President Allan B. Kline to Senator Allen J. Ellender, chairman of a Senate subcommittee on potato legislation. The proposals were developed at a recent meeting of the Fruit and Vegetable Advisory Committee and subsequently approved by the American Farm Bureau's Board of Directors. Kline pointed out that marketing quotas have worked fairly well on some of the basic commodities 6ince these commodities are storable and can be carried over each year, thus providing a buffer against shortages or surpluses in current production. "We have had no experience with marketing quotas on a crop such as potatoes w...

May, 1950 Farm Bureau Workers Will Find Valuable Data Here VFBF Favors Progressive Farm Policy Here is how the VFBF stands on the vital farm issues of the day: Strongly supports present law providing system of flexible price supports, which with efficient and business like administration will protect farm income from disastrous price declines without undue controls and governmental regimentation of agriculture. Will support amendments to present Act which experience may indicate necessary. Bitterly opposes substitution of so-called Brannan Plan for present law on the grounds that there would be no possible chance of obtaining the necessary appropriations to make good on the "Income Guarantee"; —the plan would place agriculture in a straight jacket of federal controls; —it would destroy the traditional economjc and political independence of our farm people;—it would place a ceiling on opportunity in agriculture and it would guarantee neither low food costs to consumers nor high incom...

8 Turkey Crop Set Record Last Year Virginia turkey growers ranked eighth among the 48 states in 1949 production—with a crop of over 1,500,000 birds—according to figures reported by D. U. Livermore, Extension poultry marketing specialist at V.P.I. The crop was a 25 per cent increase over 1948. About 70 per cent of the turkey production was in the Shenandoah Valley, with Rockingham the leading county. The growers, however, did not get quite as much returns for their labor. Total value of the turkey crop was 4 per cent lower than in 1948. Average prices in Virginia dropped from per pound, the highest price on record, to 37.2</:, the lowest since 1945. Total U.S. production of turkeys increased 32 per cent above 1948, driving nation's prices down from per pound in January, 1949, to in December. Early in 1950 growers in the South Atlantic states expressed intentions of increasing their 1950 production above 1949 by 15 per cent. For the country as a whole, a 1 per cent increase...

June, 1950 i|| ALDEN E. FLORY Flory (Continued from page 1) 1946 after his discharge from the Army. He spent five years in the Army during the war — enlisting as a corporal and finishing as a captain. His service included two years in the European theatre of operations. Announcing Mr. Flory's appointment, Secretary Hubbard said, "His background is ideal for the important post he holds. He helped launch the insurance program in Missouri and grew up with it. We are more than fortunate that he has accepted this position with the VFBF." Since coming to Virginia, Mr. Flory has been busily occupied with the multitude of details incidental to getting the insurance program under way. Already he has met VFBF leaders in a number of counties and he plans to visit every county in the near future.

4 HINTS For Homemakers Treat your rayon curtains as gently as possible if you want them to wear well. It is generally best to wash them by hand in lukewarm water using a mild soap or synthetic detergent. Rinse verv carefully until you are sure the soap has all been removed, and squeeze out the water gently. Roll the material in a turkish towel, and press while damp with a medium warm iron. Iron lengthwise for best results in keeping the curtains in shape. * * * If you plan to do some landscape planning for your home this Spring, be careful in selecting your plants. The plantings around your house are the most imnortant ones. Be particularly careful in selecting shrubs for around the windowc and doors. Keep plants low beneath windows. Doors, on the other hand, usually look best with taller shrubs on either side. * * * Don't try to jam the candle into the candlestick holder. If you're having trouble placing the candle, dip the ends that fit into the cup in a little hot water for a few...

June, 1950 Kline Stresses Importance Of Individual "In the United States we can be guided by a traditional attitude that it is the citizen, not the government, that is of real importance," Allan B. Kline, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, told members of the Academy of Political Science in New York City. Although President Kline's address covered most of the high spots of the present government farm programs, he pointed out that he was using "farm programs only incidentally, and principally to illustrate major trends now operating in a much larger field." He asserted that the farmer, "an individualist by tradition, and by instinct inclined toward full and free production, is a member of one of the economic groups now most directly subject to government action." Discussing the welfare of agriculture, the AFBF president said the best assurance of farm prosperity lies in high productivity and well-distributed real income among non-farm people. Without those things, no m...

8 USDA Studies Leaf Spacing Regulation The U. S. Department of Agriculture is considering a regulation governing the spacing of tobacco on warehouse floors under the Tobacco Inspection Act. In the course of selling tobacco on auction markets the tobacco is placed on baskets and arranged in rows across warehouse floors. Tobacco so arranged is inspected by Federal inspectors before being offered for sale. In order to properly sample and inspect such tobacco, there must be sufficient room between baskets to permit the pulling of samples. In recent years, the USDA said, there has been a tendency to crowd baskets together in rows. Inspectors have experienced serious difficulties in sampling work because in some instances baskets within the row are placed so close together that samples can be drawn from only two sides of the basket. An amendment to regulations of the Tobacco Inspection Act has been proposed prescribing a minimum clearance of six inches between tobacco on adjacent baskets ...

4 Lynn Credits Farm Success To Democracy The independence of American farmers has made this nation's agriculture the greatest in the world, and it is a proof of the worth of the democratic form of government, it was explained in Washington to a group of 60 foreign information workers, employed by the U. S. State Department in various parts of the world. The workers were addressed by John C. Lynn, of the AFBF Washington staff. He represented agriculture at the sessions, which were set up by the State Department to aid in indoctrinating the visitors in American policies. Mr. Lynn described AFBF's role in representing a free agriculture. He traced Farm Bureau's growth and stressed the democratic manner in which it is conducted, with all its policies originating from the grassroots. "Farm Bureau," he said, "has as its purpose the development of plans and programs which will continue to improve conditions in America and to share our knowledge with peoples throughout the world in order th...
