June, 1051 New, Better Plan For SFB School The Planning Committee of the Southern Regional Training School has arranged a new set-up for the school in Louisville, Ky., July 811, this year. Classes will be so arranged that every person attending will get the same instruction and everyone will receive a certificate upon satisfactory completion of the school course. There will be time for recreation, relaxation, parties and fun. But the classes will have roll call and the same instructors will teach everyone the same thing. Classes will be small enough to be informal and will rotate. Outstanding speakers like Mr. Kline, Mrs. Sayre, and Mr. Fleming will address the general assemblies. Among the instructors will be State Farm Bureau Presidents, executive secretaries, AFBF staff members and AW officers. Mrs. Charles DeShazo will work with Jack Lynn, assistant AFBF secretary in the class on History and Philosophy of Farm Bureau. The AW of the VFBF will award a special certificate to the co...

6 Key Farm Jobs Placed On Nation's Critical Work List Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan announced recently that farm operators and assistants have been added to the list of critical occupations by the Labor Department. The Secretary has been notified by Secretary of Labor Maurice J. Tobin that he has accepted the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Advisory Committee that key farm workers be added to the critical list. The action is the result of intensive study by the Committee, on which the Department of Agriculture is represented. The Department of Agriculture acts as the official claimant agency for critical farm manpower, machinery and other equipment before other defense agencies. Secretary Brannan said the list of critical occupations is used as a guide in the selection of manpower for the Armed Services. It is used by the Department of Defense for considering requests for delay in call to active duty of reservists and the National Guard. Also, Selective Service make...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 12, No. 7 Governor's Pasture Group To Organize Counties Approximately 60 state groups were represented recently at a meeting of the Governor's Pasture Committee in Richmond. The group agreed the best way to go about carrying out the better pasture move is to organize similar committees on the county level. Each of the 60 organizations will appoint members of their county organization to serve on that county committee. The county committee and the state committee will work hand-in-hand in carrying out the program. In the meantime, the committee issued three things that all farmers can be doing to help in the movement. "First, sell yourself on the value of a good pasture. The best way to do this is to see a good pasture and have the farmer tell you what it has meant to him. The county agent or other agriculture workers will be glad to show you a good pasture in your county. "Second, if you own or have an interest in a farm, start making pla...

NO. 3 IN A SERIES ON BURLEY TOBACCO NEXT MONTH — BARN MANAGEMENT AND CURING CONDITIONS! TOBACCO has its problems, and sometimes seems to have drawn more than its share. However, the uncertainties and misfortunes that afflict the tobacco industry would be immeasurably greater if it were not for the outstanding work of the Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations. Their contributions to the tobacco grower include , disease-resistant varieties of tobacco, methods of preventing and controlling numerous tobacco diseases, and informative bulletins on all phases of the industry. The story of their work on Tobacco Mosaic, although it describes only a small portion of their widespread activities, helps to show how the Agricultural Experiment Stations have rendered such valuable assistance to tobacco growers. Endless Research has Reduced Tobacco Mosaic Tobacco mosaic or dry weather french is one of the most common diseases of the crop —and one that has taken a heavy toll over the ye...

4 More Porto Rico Potatoes by J. L. Maxton, Extension Agricultural Economist The value of Virginia sweet potatoes was $5,443,000 in 1949 and $5,148,000 in 1950. It was the second ranking vegetable produced in Virginia in these years being exceeded only by white potatoes. In 1948 a consumer preference study was made in which data was obtained from the equivalent of 6,764 retail stores. In this study the Porto Rico variety was consumers first choice, Goldens second, and Nancy Halls third. These same buyers for consumers showed a preference for washed or washed and waxed sweets put up in bushel baskets or James crates of a U. S. Fancy or No. 1 grade. Retail stores supplying consumers buy 35 percent of their sweets in the fall, 45 percent in the winter, 17 percent in the spring and 3 percent in the summer. In a 1949 exploratory study of sweet potato marketing of the 1948 crop in 9 counties in Virginia it was found that our growers produced 66 percent Goldens, 25 percent Porto Rico and 9...

July, 1951 Va. Committee Against Inflation Formed, Issues Statements-Plans As Curb Measures Representatives of 17 organizations united under the title of the Virginia Committee Against Inflation, held several meetings during June and adopted statements and plans for fighting the continued growth of inflation in the United States and Virginia. The first point adopted by the group states: "Insist that the Federal Government be placed as nearly as possible on a 'Pay As You Go' basis. This may increase Federal Taxes. When our Government has to borrow, more money goes into circulation, adding to the inflation pressures which send prices up. To put our defense effort, as nearly as possible on a 'Pay As You Go' basis may mean higher taxes now, but it will be cheaper in the long run. This will also involve insisting on cutting nonessential federal expenditures to the bone. Every dollar saved is an added dollar for the defense effort without extra taxes or borrowing." The committee issued th...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 12, No. 8 Farmers' Message to Moscow: Production Near All-Time High American agriculture is answering its "call to arms" in the present world crisis in the one way that cannot be misunderstood or misinterpreted—even in Moscow. Farm production in 1951 now bids fair to hit an all-time high, certainly the production total will be among the heaviest the country has ever known. Fifty-two principal crops were planted or are growing on 371.5 million acres, nearly 14 million more acres than in 1950 and more than in any other year since 1933. In Virginia the total acreage of principal crops planted this season is estimated at 3,912,000 acres which is about 3 percent above the acreage planted last year. Crops showing an increase in acreage are corn, up one percent; wheat, two percent; oats, nine percent; all hay crops, three percent; soybeans, 15 percent'all tobacco, 12 percent.

Especially in HklM^ damp seasons, JKSSM'IC! the lower leaves JByfljiak of un primed Burley are lost. MKjyjji "•Sj^pv" Especially in damp seasons, the lower leaves of unprimed Burley are lost. Proper Harvesting and Curing Burley tobacco should be allowed to ripen before it is harvested. It should be cut when the middle leaves are yellowing, but since Burley plants ripen from the bottom upward, the lower leaves turn yellow first. Agricultural Experiment Station workers have found that priming and curing these bottom leaves when they turn lemon-yellow is more than worth the extra labor involved. Not only is the tobacco yield greater, but the remaining leaves are allowed to ripen, giving better quality tobacco for housing. Ripe tobacco cures faster with less damage, weighs more after curing, and yields a higher percentage of good-quality smoker leaves than tobacco less ripe. In average weather, it is best to cut Burley tobacco when the middle leaves are turning lemon yellow. But if the ...

4 Number of Acres, Farms Decline in Virginia A story released by the Associated Press last month revealed facts from the 1950 agricultural census which stated that there are now 20,000 fewer farms in Virginia than in 1945, and that the number of acres in cultivation have decreased over half a million. In 1945 there were 173.051 farms in the state. By last year, this total had dipped to 150,997, the AP report said. The land acreage of Virginia farms has declined from 16,358,072 in 1945, to the 15,572,295 reported in the census. On the other hand", the report revealed, that the value of farm land and buildings has increased, as might be expected with rising costs. The average Virginia farm in 1945 was valued at $5,021, and in 1950, this figure had climbed to $8,449. Broken down, the average value per acre went up from $53.11 to $82.02. Other findings of the census as reported by the Associated Press are as follows: Truck Farms Most Popular Small truck farms are still the most popular ...

6 Spelling 'Gnat' We were playing a game in Louisville. The men were trying to outspell the women. Ten men and 10 women delegates had letters as you see on the cards. The words were called out and the letter carriers would hurry into place. The side that finished first won. Here you see a gentleman from Arkansas with the "G", a gentleman from Mississippi with the "N", and an unidentified gentleman with the "T". The guy standing there with the "R" is from Virginia, woe it's him, Mr. R. H. Short, Greensville county. Needless to say, the women won.

8 Pasture Program Underway, State Committee Gives Tips Governor Battle's pasture program is well underway. Already county committees are beginning their local programs, and plans are being made to put Virginia's idle land into grass. The Governor's program was announced in late May, and Dr. Walter S. Newman, president of V.P.1., was named chairman of the state pasture committee. The committee," with representatives from virtually every civic, industrial, and agricultural organization in the State met June 22 in the Senate chamber in Richmond, and their suggestions are now being effected on the county level. At the state meeting the group heard addresses by several outstanding agriculturists in Virginia. Dr. Paul Sanders, editor of the Southern Planter in Richmond, discussed the opportunities that lie ahead for grassland farmers; Dr. Newman outlined activities which form a foundation for the program; and P. H. DeHart, Extension agronomist at V.P.1., discussed the objectives of the pr...
