low the world market price.
Subsidy Payments
The bill stipulates that subsidy
payments of 9 cents per pound be
made directly to cotton farmers,
rather than directly to cotton
mills. It also forces the Com-
modity Credit Corporation to re-
duce from 29 cents to 21 cents the
price at which it will absorb cot-
ton.
Farmers in cotton and other
crops will be given an option by
the government. They may pro-

duce as much as they wish with-
out government subsidy, or receive
subsidization by reducing their
acreage. Moreover, the more they
cut back, the greater the federal
aid.
Reduce Production
Cotton farmers must reduce
acreage by at least 15 per cent
to qualify for the payout. Some,
however, are expected to reduce
production by as much as 35 per
cent due to the attractive offers
made by the government.
The bill would generate substan-

tial effects on the U.S. cotton in-
dustry. Production will be reduc-
ed, sales to foreigners should in-
crease, and the government cot-
ton surplus may be reduced.
On a larger scale, the bill would
tend to strengthen the U.S. bal-
ance of payments position because
of the increased exports which
bring money into the country. As
our trade balance-the difference
between exports and imports-ie-
comes more favorable, our pay-
ments problems are proportionate-

BARGAINS in New and Used
end ' DN SPLIES
"Every book for every, cous!

By JACK REISMAN
One of the most famous and
widely appreciated activities on
the Michigan campus has always.
been the University bands - in-
cluding the marching, symphony,
varsity, and concert bands. The
University Bands' program, which
includes over 450 student musi-
cians, provides a musical outlet
for all qualified students regard-
less of the college in which they
are enrolled.
There are a variety of musical
programs open to interested stu-
dents, programs which h a v e
acquired a world famous reputa-
tion for quality and excellence.
The fame of the marching band
is widespread. Dr. William D.
Revelli, now in his 31st season
with the University Bands, along
with Assistant Conductor of Bands
George R. Cavender, has given
such stature to the Marching
Band that it became the first

American organization of its kind'
to be invited to the Tattoo (Mili-
tary Band performance) of the
Edinburgh Music Festival in Scot-
land.
Males Only
Traditionally, t h e Marching
Band is an entirely male organi-
zation. This season, the band will
accompany the football team to
its games at Minnesota and
Northwestern, in addition to its
usual pre-game, half-time, and
post game entertainment at the
home football games.
The University's world famous
and world travelled Symphony
Band, conducted by Dr. Revelli,
is the principal concert band on
the campus. The band usually
presents several concerts in Ann
Arbor, in addition to annual trips
to various parts of the country.
This year, a midwinter trip to
Ohio and a larger tour later in
the spring to principal eastern

cities and concert halls, such as
Lincoln Center in New York, are
scheduled.
This outstanding organization
was 'the first collegiate band in
America to travel under the
United States Department of
State's Cultural Exchange Pro-
gram with the Soviet Union and
several Near' Eastern countries.
On Michigan Day at the World's
Fair last year, the State of Mich-
igan chose the Symphony Band
to represent the University in New
York.
Two other bands, the Varsity
Band and the Concert Band are
organized for those students whose
abilities or schedules preclude
their membership in the Sym-
phony Band, but who still seek
a chance to perform on their ;n-
struments. Like the Symphony
Band, these bands are open to
all qualified men and women on
campus.
