6 Fourteen Resolutions Adopted at YFBF's 1950 Meeting {Continued from page 1) ing between the nations of the world, and between the individuals that make up such nations is a primary cause of the developments that lead to war. If we are to succeed in our efforts to convince others that ours is a better way of life, we must take advantage of every opportunity to give to the leaders of other nations a chance to see for themselves the real meaning of what we call democracy in terms of freedom, human dignity and the enjoyment of a high standard of living. We therefore recommend the full cooperation of county, state and national units of the farm bureau organization in an exchange program for both student and adult groups which will develop a better spirit of understanding among the peoples of the nations participating. International Cooperation The recent rapid and continuing developments in transportation, communication, and in perfecting the instrumentalities designed for the mass des...

January, 1951 AFBF (Continued from page 1) Farm machinery prices are high, he said, because International Harvester profits have risen 800 per cent in 10 years, and John Deere and Allis-Chalmers profits rose 500 per cent. "Organized labor has not been fosled by propaganda that farmers are responsible for high food prices," he said. "The farmers are getting less of the food dollar than formerly. "More than ever before in history. farmers and workers have a More Meat for More Millions ■ 7" / "America may need 25% to 30% more meat by 1960!" Agricultural leaders foresee the need of perhaps 6H billion additional pounds of n eat to feed our steadily growing population. For another ten years may see 170 million mouths to feed. And every day more Americans realize the value of more meat in their diet. Within ten years, per capita consumption may reach 170 pounds per year . . . compared with 145 pounds in 1950. Where will all this additional meat come from? Fortunately, a number of recent de...

8 Kline Sees Price Control, Rationing As Roadblocks to Maximum Production Let's take a second look at the current critical national situation before rushing pellmell into price controls and rationing, declared Allan B. Kline, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation in Chicago at the annual convention of the American Meat Institute. "The situation is critical," said Kline. "It is of indefinite duration. We don't control the timetable. Russia does. All the Russians have to decide is where and if they will create the overt situation that will lead to war. "This is a struggle not only for power, but for the minds of men. It is a struggle conducted by clever men. It is also conducted by ruthless men. They are materialists and atheists, completely ruthless. Their purpose is to rule the world. The United States is the great prize in that world. Since we are devoted to the concept that it is the individual that counts, our philosophy is the exact antithesis of that of Russia." Indu...

February, 1951 Cotton Production Goal Of 16 Million Bales Set By AFBF Group for 1951 Recognizing that the 1951 cotton production goal of 16 million bales can be attained only if adequate supplies of needed materials and manpower are available, Farm Bureau representatives from cottonproducing States met with the staff of the American Farm Bureau Federation in Washington last month and drafted recommendations helpful to the achievement of this goal. The recommendations, set forth in a statement prepared on behalf of AFBF, are as follows: 1. The survey of probable 1951 cotton production now being undertaken by the U. S. Department of Agriculture should be followed up by a more positive program of determining what can be produced if the factors preventing increased production can be alleviated, and a more aggressive endeavor should be made to promote reasonable and feasible measures for assisting producers to accomplish the desired production. 2. No effort should be spared to press for ...

6 State Cites Farm Road Improvement Widespread improvements were completed during the past year on Virginia's farm-to-market and school bus routes, according to State Highway Department figures released last month. A summary of 1950 accomplishments on the 39,000 mile secondary highway system showed that: 825 miles of previously unpaved road were hard-surfaced. 1,750 miles were stabilized with heavy applications of crushed stone and gravel. 2,400 miles of paved roads were resurfaced with new black-top. 246 obsolete bridges were replaced by modern structures. 600 bridges were strengthened or given major repairs. Highway officials said the above figures are approximate, based on preliminary reports from resident engineers throughout the State. No exact figures are available, since the highway department's records are kept on the basis of a fiscal year which ends on June 30. The 1950 secondary program was directed toward four chief objectives : (1) bringing as many miles as possible to ...

8 Need for Rural Industry Held 4 Pressing 9 By Maxton Movement of industry to rural areas to take advantage of offseason and surplus farm labor is pointed up as a "pressing need" in the nation's economy by Dr. J. L. Maxton, agricultural economist at VPI. Dr. Maxton points out that about half the people living on farms are producing only about 10 percent of the total farm output. "Many industries should be decentralized and established in those rural areas of high population and low farm production . . . the great mass of workers should be recruited from near-by farm homes, thus eliminating the need for much home construction and wisely using available labor," he says. Dr. Maxton says such a movement of industry would do more than anything else toward raising the standard of living in the group with the lowest standards. He believes surveys should be made now to locate the areas with surplus farm workers and low production; and that decentralization of industry should begin immediate...

Manpower Requirements of US Agriculture Set Forth In AFBF Statement to Congress Facts on agriculture's manpower requirements were set forth in a statement submitted by AFBF to the Preparedness Subcommittee of the Senate Armed Forces Committee. The main point developed was the importance of maintaining in agriculture those key persons skilled in the operation, care, and maintenance of farm machinery, in the care of livestock, and other operations requiring a high degree of competence, skill, and training. It is these key persons who have been responsible for increasing agricultural production despite declines in rural populations and farm employment.

8 AFBF Urges 3-Year Extension For Reciprocal Trade Pacts A three-year extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act has been recommended by the American Farm Bureau Federation in testimony by John C. Lynn, Associate Director of the AFBF Washington Office, before the House Ways and Means Committee. Testifying in support of H.R. 1612, which would extend the Agree- ments for three years beyond June 12, 1951, Mr. Lynn emphasized that our foreign trade policy must be such as to encourage the free nations to orient their economies with ours and not with the Russian sphere of influence. He based his presentation on the AFBF resolutions on international trade, reciprocal trade agreements, and trade in strategic materials which were adopted by the voting delegates at the December 1950 annual meeting of AFBF. The resolution on international trade recognizes that the development of strong, self-supporting economies in the free nations is vital to our security, and reaffirms AFBF's position ...
