To a great extent, the principles of the Farm Bureau program were adopted The Farm Bureau is lighting now and needs your help m the fight to make these principles apply. 3 The Farm Bureau will help me, after the war by keeping up its iighi (o assurc farmcrs lull parity during post war period. This will be done, if the Stegall Act is kept effective. This Act places floor of 00% of parity under our prices 2 years after the war. 4 The Farm Bureau helps with my production problems — labor — machinery and supplies; helps me produce more food, fiber and feed. 5 Farm Bureau supports .ill the institutions and agencies serving farmers, thereby bringing the best in research and Economic information down to my farm. This helps me keep produc- ilion at high level. ,£ When I belong to the Farm Bureau I've got I someone fighting my battles where laws are made that affect my farm, my income, and my security. 7 I like the County Farm meeting every month, where I meet my neighbors and friends from all parts of the County and discuss the problems and opportunilies of agriculture. •g My wife nnd my children benefit from Farm Bureau, too—4-11 Club work, arrf community development projects are supported by the Farm Bureau.
