April, 1951 Kline Cites Production Crisis, Calls For Machinery Output "Now is the time, in the national interest, to accelerate rather than decelerate farm mechanization. Agricultural production cannot be taken for granted. . . ." These words of warning were contained in a telegram sent by AFBF President Allan B. Kline to Charles E. Wilson, Eric Johnston and other leaders in the national production effort. His message followed a detailed statement given on February 13 to the National Production Authority by John C. Lynn and Matt Triggs which emphasized the gravity of the farm production outlook. That statement declared that "Farm machinery is the key to national food production." Million Short Mr. Kline's telegram pointed out that the national farm labor force is approximately one million below a year ago, as the migration of rural workers to industrial employment continues, and that the manpower situation in agriculture is daily becoming more critical. If agricultural production is...

Inflation May Increase Prices 500 Per Cent Runaway inflation might raise prices 500 per cent and act as a Communist "sixth column" unless it is curbed promptly by tax increase and sweeping economic controls, according to a congressional report prepared for the Joint Committee on the President's Economic Report by expert committee staff members. Inflation—"hot money" bidding up prices—was labeled as the worst immediate problem facing the United States in its rearmament race against world Communism. Even by June, wholesale prices were described as being free to rise 22 per cent above the level of preKorean war days. Industri...

8 Congress Asks Recognition Of Agriculture In Defense The House Committee on Agriculture has urged that "those in charge of the defense program recognize and act upon the elementary fact that agriculture is an essential defense industry and should be given that status in any allocation of critical materials." The committee's action came in releasing the text of a report embodying conclusions and recommendations of the special subcommittee headed by Rep. Thomas G. Abernethy (D., Miss.) which has just concluded hearings on the shortage of sulphur and its effects on food production. The fertilizer industry is the largest single user of sulphur and sulphuric acid. (American Farm Bureau Federation representatives testified before the Abernethy subcommittee and emphasized the necessity of sulphur fertilizers if agriculture is to produce adequately in the crisis ahead.) The full House Agriculture Committee unanimously adopted the Abernethy subcommittee's report and urged defense agencies t...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled . to Parity Vol. 12, No. 5 New Benefits Seem Certain For Farm Bureau Members It seems only a matter of time now before members of the Virginia Farm Bureau will have access to another advantage which non-members do not have. Several of the staff members or the VFBF have recently been in touch with a number of hospitalization insurance companies dscussing a plan whereby FB members will be permitted to obtain hospitalization insurance at a minimum cost, with maximum benefits. Naturally, this plan will be available only to farm bureau members. The continued interest by members throughout the state, and the expressed interest of several insurance companies almost assures FB members of these benefits in the near future. M. A. Hubbard r Executive Secretary of VFBF, in a letter to county presidents and secretaries, stated, "We are hoping to have something of a concrete nature to submit to the state board on May 10 and we will get in touch with you immediately t...

4 Run For Your Life The Tax Dam Has Busted; 1 Billion Virginia's Share (Editor's Note: This article is based on and condensed from a report by Dr. William H. Stauffer, Director of Research of the Virginia State Chamber of Commerce. Full facts and figures as to each county's estimated pro rata share of the 1951 tax bill can be obtained by writing the Virginia Farm Bureau News, 401 Lyric Building, Richmond 19, Va.) The familiar old colloquial saying, "Run for your life the dam has busted, we'll all be drowned," can certainly be applied to the new proposed $71.6 BILLION Federal budget presented by President Truman to the United States Congress a few weeks ago. What does that big figure mean to Virginians? It means that Virginians will be responsible for raising approximately one billion, one hundred and three million dollars of that large amount. What does that big figure mean to Virginians? It means that if that sum was collected by equal shares from each person in the state, each Vir...

May, 1951 Vice Presidents Being Asked To Appoint AW Officers In Unorganized Counties The district vice presidents of the Associated Women of Farm Bureau are asking all country presidents of the FB where women are not organized, to appoint chairmen of education and publicity, defense, legislation and membership committees. They are also suggesting that women be placed on the program planning and resolutions committees. Kits of material suitable for county use in each of these departments are being sent all chairmen by Mrs. Charles DeShazo, president of the AW in Virginia. Mrs. DeShazo is anxious for the vice presidents to comply with the request in order that this vital information may be processed to the right person in each county. Any person interested in obtaining one of these kits who is not a chairman may do so by requesting one from Mrs. DeShazo at Paul's Cross Roads. The education and publicity kit contains a two page outline of the history of the FB and is usable by anyone i...

6 AFBF Charges Siphoning of Farm Labor Due to Gov't Hiring for'Unproductive'Jobs While Uncle Sam was hiring over four civilian workers a minute per working day last February, farm employment plummeted to a four-year low for that month, an American Farm Bureau Federation official said recently. The federation spokesman explained his statement was based on reports from the Joint Congressional Committee on Reduction of Nonessential Federal Expenditures and the Bureau of Agricultural Economics of the Department of Agriculture. Senator Byrd (Va.), chairman of that joint congressional committee, reported recently the government civilian payroll increased 2,200 a day for February, while BAE figures show a 400,000 decrease in farm labor when February, 1950 is compared with the corresponding month in 1951. "The federation is not criticizing the hiring of civilians for necessary defense purposes," the farm leader explained, "but if America is to have the things she needs to support national d...

8 Price Control, Black Market In Meat Threaten National Scandal —Says Holmes Prolonged price controls and a growing black market in meat threaten to develop into a national scandal, John Holmes, president of Swift & Company, declared recently. Speaking at a luncheon of the Baltimore Association of Commerce for the board of directors of the American Meat Institute, Holmes said "there are many indications which support the belief that a considerable black market has already developed." "It is greatly to be hoped that Congress will recognize the situation, before it develops into a national scandal, and vote out attempts to control meat prices by regulation, a procedure which all experience proves is futile," he said. "I am fearful that a growing philosophy of dependence upon controls may lead us to the point of no return. As much as all of us, including those in government may want to get our business system back on a free market basis, experience in other countries has sh...

NO. 2 IN A SERIES ON BURLEY TOBACCO TOBACCO is a hard taskmaster. It makes heavy demands on the grower, and if those demands are ignored, it usually responds with a low yield of inferior quality. The difficulties of successfully raising tobacco, and the problems that beset growers, are gradually dwindling. This encouraging situation is a direct result of the work of our Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations, whose outstanding research, in laboratory and field, has been a boon to tobacco farmers. The story of Black Root Rot can give only an inkling of the extensive amount of work the Stations have undertaken in behalf of the tobacco industry. H.ow Black Root Rot was Conquered In the early days of tobacco culture in the burley area of the United States, the idea was prevalent that tobacco was hard on the land, and that only one or two crops could be grown in a long rotation of grass and tobacco. Now we know, through the work carried on at our Agricultural Experiment Stati...

4 Meat (Continued from page 1) per pound cattle last year. He says his beef and all other that was bought on that market will have to be sold for at least 35 cents in order to break even. Therefore, those 14 head will have to be sold at a loss or kept to feed and thus cost him more money. The usual procedure is to keep those cattle for about 18 months. They weighed around 400 pounds when he bought them and he will add about 700 pounds to them. If he keeps them until they reach the marketing weight, the roll-back will have taken effect and Charlie will lose his shirt. Charlie says it's just that simple. No if's nor an's about it, he's going to lose money under the roll-back. So far, Mr. DiSalle has brought no statement to light showing how this can be avoided. He may or may not have a subsidy in mind. The cattlemen want no part of it, most of them will quit producing first. Think of all the cattlemen whose • marketing herd is composed primarily of the 45 cents cattle. What to do with...
