the farmers in Nebraska "most
disturbed" over the acreage lim
itations on wheat which Secretary
of Agriculture Ezra Benson has
been enforcing.' There is relatively
no surplus in the type of wheat
most produced in the state, and it
would be impractical for the far

fodder crops. '
Candidate Green, who is being
opposed -by Republican Roman
Hruska, went on to point out that
the Republican approach to the
farm situation. is based on "an

Written By Miller
"Death of a Salesman" was
written by Arthur ' Miller and ap
peared on Broadway to Feb. 10,
1949, with Lee Cobb and Mildred
Dunnock playing the leads. That
year the tragedy won the major
ity of the theatrical awards,
among them the Pulitzer Prize.
The setting for the tragedy is
unusual in that the cut-away sec
tion of the house is shown. Scen
ery is so constructed that Willy
can walk through the wails dur
ing his dream sequences. These
dream sequences are similar to
movie flashbacks. ,
Music for the performances will
be provided by records of the
background music played in the
original Broadway production.
Speakers surrounding the audi
ence will produce an effect of
stereophonic sound. The lighting,
like the set, is symbolic and iliu
sionary. ;When Willie is in a retrospective
mood, the lighting is rosy pink;
when Willie's thoughts are in the
present, the lighting is in harsh
hues of chilly amber. These light
ing manipulations which corre
spond to Willie's moods are so
gradual, frequent and such a mo
bile part of the entire production
that one light change is produced
almost every minute.
