It sounds like a dream come true for any performing group. The group that pinched themselves and found out they really weren't dreaming is the Hamlin Stage Band. The band is one of four high school-stage bands In the Unit- ed States invited by Interna- tional Tours, Inc. to make the tour next July. The 24 members and their direc- tor, Tim Jones, will leave New York July 21 and return Aug- ust 4. Everyone 'involved agrees that the trip is a fantastic op- portunity. But there's just one little catch That's the amount the band must, raise to finance the trip. BUT Ttf you talk to their parents and townspeople you get the feeling that they could raise the money by next week if they had to.

The official, who declined to be named, indicated that un- der the proposed compromise, the United States would ease Its pressure for France to join the U.S.-sponsored Interna- tional Energy Agency, .while France would soften its insis- tence for a quick conference between the oil consuming and oil producing nations. In toasting Giscard d'Estaing, Ford delared: "Unilateral measures can no longer suffice in solving prob- lems of such universal dimen- sion" as the problem of en- ergy and petroleum.

The United States is con- vinced that cooperation and solidarity among the consum- ing nations marks the surest way to reach understanding with the producer nations, which we all desire." The United States has op- posed a conference of petrole- um users and as has been urged by France unless careful preparations are first made to insure the consuming nations will present a unified bargaining position.
