Thank you very much, Heinz.
You know, this program has gone so well this morning, that it is with some trepidation that l even stand up.
My compliments to everybody here at the table who has been before this podium today.
Hans, I think this is the best organized, best presented program on which I have appeared in many, many months and, I have appeared on a lot of them.
I "take my hat off" to all of you.
Beyond that, I want to say to all of you, before I get into the substance of my remarks, that although you have had a very difficult and trying problem on Cotton Contracts in the Far East in the last year or so, I want to say that all of the people who have been back in Washington to deal with us on this issue, Hans and Rudi and many others, have conducted themselves in just superlative fashion at all times.
