5E3 project

DJR5E3 project
I'm in the process of building a 5E3 Deluxe  
type circuit using an old Conn organ chassis and transformers. As I want to keep the project as  
simple as possible, I would like to have only one channel with one input. My question is this:  
If I use the first preamp tube in parallel (just because the other half is there and unused) would I  
simply not connect the one 100k plate resistor from the B+ node to pin 6, jumper pins 1 and 6, and  
leave the other 100k plate resistor connected to pin 1 as in the normal 5E3 circuit?
