It is not necessary to establish a Cutter number in the classification schedule for this particular individual. Those that are listed in the schedule are provided only as examples.

Subject Headings

Subdivisions to be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:

H 1180, Plants & crops

$x Organic farming (May Subd Geog)

Other decisions:

Acoustic bass guitar

H 1917.5, sec. 1.a.(1) and H 1918, sec. 1.a. in the Subject Headings Manual require that when a new heading for a musical instrument is established, a heading for the music of that instrument be established at the same time. This proposal may be resubmitted together with a proposal to establish the heading Acoustic bass guitar music.

Hitler, Adolph, 1889-1945--Assassination attempt, 1939 (November 8)

Since the subdivision --Assassination attempt, [date] is free-floating under names of individual persons, this proposal is not necessary. When formulating the date portion of the subdivision, the month and year should be included only if there is evidence that more than one assassination attempt occurred in the same year.

Radicalism in music

The meaning of this proposed heading is not clear. If it is intended to refer to the depiction of radicalism in music, a scope note to that effect should be added. The proposal may be resubmitted.
