We all hope 1959 will be a happy and prosperious year for you. Planning may be something that could help you make 1959 a pleas :ant and prosperous year. ]~t has been said ~hat to faz'm successfully you have to plan a- head, you need to be a good plan- ner. There are many things we need t~ consider in planning for the new year. This is the time of year to do the brain part of farming. I.t is the time of year to concen- xate on the brain part of farming. How about the feeding program m your farm?? Could i~ be chan- ged so you would continue to get as good or better results than you are now getting and still be more economical ? Would spending more for feed :bring you a larger net return? How about the hay, silage and pasture program? Do you believe it is adequate for your farm? Would cu6ting hay at a different stage of maturiy give you better quality hay? There are many more questions we could go on asking ourselves :about our present operation. Com ing up with the correct answer can make a big difference in the out- come of your farming operation in 1959. 4-State Farmers Meeting The Four-State Farmers meet- ing will be held in Hagerstown, Md. Jan. 23rd. A good program has been planned and a copy of it may be found elsewhe(e in this paper. Every farmer should mark the date January 23rd on his cal endar and then make a special ef- foj't *to attend. If transportation is a problem let us know. ' r'arm Record '~,ook Farm and Home t ecord Bookg for 1959 are available for any farmer that desires a copy. These record books have been prepared by the Agriculture Exten siGn Service of W. Vs. University. They can be u,~;ed to keep detailed records or you can use the book for a simple record. The choice is up to the record keeper and his needs. Did your dollars fly away last year? Will you plan ahead or just spend this year? "Successful is he who knows what t;hin gs cost, Who knows where he profits, and where he has lost, Who knows what migh,t pay, and wha~t never can. For he plans his work, then works his plan." A good set of farm recorcL~ can be a part OLf this plan. /I Ill THE MELVIN T. STRIDER CO.

VA. 226 "COMPLETE ESSOTANE GAS SERVICE" nlo ME HAS PROVEN CONCLUS VELY The "pop tax" hoe been 7 titan ee difficult for your neighbor, the local bottler, as lie roctn! extension hae been for the large out-of-state manufacturers who very ably have pointed out the inequltioc ef the tax and the hc/rdehips it has Imposed. They've had it for only a few months. We've had It for year|. What we want you to remqmber le: The tax has provtn to be most u~Just and unfair, as they have so cempleflfly proven. II Housewife doesn't Grocer thinks new tax unfair to kids. TYPICAL ADVERTISEMENTS AND HEADLINE APPEARING IN WEST VIRGINIA NEWSPAPERS CALLING ATTENTION TO PROBLEM. In recent months you have learned firsthand of the in- equities caused by the extension of what is known as the "pop tax." There have been more headlines, more state- ments and more extended discussions than at any time since the act was passod in 1951. This was bound to happen since time, at long last, has proven conclusively that the idea was wrong in the first place. This matter of righting what time has proven unwise is not an easy one when it involves state rev- enue and expenditures. We know that. But we feel sure that the evident fair-mindedness of our neigh- bors arid friends will result in the following: That it is the will of our fellow West Virginians to see local industries receive the same consideration and treatment in tax revision as might be extended to the large out-of-state manufacturers involved in this matter. The latter have experienced in just a few months what local bottlers have struggled under for seven years--a tax which is unjust, unfair and d s- criminatory, which has become a frail support for our great and necessary medical center So, we ask your sympathetic understanding in this complex matter. Local bottlers feel assured that fair and equitable treatment is the first desire of an informed American public generally, and an informed West Virginia public particularly. Inserted by your local bottler who distributes soft drinks to you and your family. If you wish to comment on this matter you may address him at his statewide headquarters c/o P. C).
