6-A tntl REGlSxrun-isBWS — ilfT. VERNON. ILLTNOTS THURSDAY, DECEMBER If, 1968 -1 Through Textbook Lessons Chinese Children Learn About Mao At Young Age By JOHN RODERICK TOKYO (AP) — Chinese toddlers who once began their lessons with "a cat catches fish" are in for sterner political stuff. Now the first textbook lesson is entitled "Long live Chairman Mao." Dissatisfied with the old school books, peasants in one area of Honan Province have written their own, an example that is sure to be followed elsewhere. Before doing so, according to the Peking People's Daily, they examined the standard textbooks which said: "School reopens. Taking our satchesl, we go to school. When meeting our teacher, we bow to him. When seeing a schoolmate, we say hello to him." Said the peasant committee- one of thousands now running the mainland's rural schools: "Proletarian politics was not put to the fore in any degree. 'A cat catches fish, a crow drinks water. . .' and other rubbish were included in the textbooks." It was "black goods" peddled by disgraced President Liu Shao-chi. The next step was glorification of the sayings of Chairman Mao Tse-tung. "Each of Chairman Mao's words is truth," the committee said. "Quotations from Chairman Mao must be taken as the most fundamental teaching material." Other lessons "aim at cultivating the students' loyalty to Chairman Mao, Mao Tse-tung's thought and Chairman Mao's proletarian revolutionary line." $^99 Reg. $5.99 The Weather Elsewhere !

Anyone can overlook the payment of an insurance premium. Aren't companies required by law to notify customers when their premium payments fall due? A. The only law requiring notices of insurance premiums due applies to life insurance and only to certain policies. For instance, companies need not send notices of premiums due for cancellable accident and health policies which are renewable at the option of the company, or for group or industrial life policies or for policies upon which premiums are payable monthly or at shorter intervals. If premium due notices are required by law, they must be sent at least 15 days and not more than 45 days prior to the day the premium is due and payable, and the company failing to send such notice may not declare a policy forfeited or lapsed until a premium payment has been an default for more than six months. —Illinois State Bar Association F>-ee Gift Wrapping 99 Up To $9 50 All Styles And Colors Of HOUSE SHOES MOJUD and BACHELOR GIRL HOSIERY Priced From J Pair $J00 U P LETISSE HANDBAGS and Many Other Brands and Styles. 99 Up To $25 00 $2 KEEP YOUR SHOES IN GOOD SHAPE SHOE TREES ELECTRIC SHOE SHINE KITS OPEN TIL 8 P.M.

Pass ZV Pass Pass Pass Opening lead— V J No matter how well you bid and play, you can't expect to make every contract and good defensive play will sometimes set you several tricks. When Bob Hamman went down three tricks at his two- heart contract, he congratulated George Rapee and Sidney Lazard on their fine defense. It was good defense indeed. George opened the jack of trumps. Bob won in dummy, led a spade and put in his seven spot. George won and led another trump. Bob won that one also and led his queen of spades. George won and led a third trump. Back came a spade. George was on lead again. By this time, he hd set up his eight of trumps so he cashed it, then played his nine of diamonds. Sidney was in for the first time. Most players would have simply played another top diamond. This would have allowed Bob to ruff in and end play George to go down only two, but Sidney led his jack of clubs, it didn't matter what Bob did at this point. He had already lost three spades, a trump and a diamond. He was still going to lose his last two spades and the queen of clubs. Bob could have saved one trick from the wreck had he known where all the cards were before he started playing spades, but even the best players don't start with a photograph of the opponents' hands. Strangely enough Bob's score of minus 300 cost him nothing in the trials. It seems t' tit a couple of North players passed to one spade and ran 1o two diamonds after East reopened with a double and West passed. Two dimaonds was also Jiubled, where upon South ran to two hearts and was doubled there. Indict 8 Policemen On Rights PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Eight policemen have been inflicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy to viola e and violation of civil rights of Negro residents during racial disorders last summer. The indictment said the policemen assaulted one Negro, and broke windows of several business establishment operated by Negroes. U.S. Atty. David Satz Jr. of New Jersey said the policemen were charged with violating an 1872 Civil Rights Act, the first such indictments against policemen brought in the state. "Enough people came forward immediately with enough evidence to wan-ant presentation to the grand jury," Satz said. A coalition of civil rights groups charged that the'police department "rioted against the citizens, uncontrolled by their, own authorities," while suppressing the disorders. Paterson, which has a population of 150,000 of which about 40,000 are Puerto Ricans and ?0.000 Negroes, was hit by spc~ ladic disorders early in July. The civil rights coalition maimed that at one point during the disturbances that included firebombing and rock throwing l-y bands of Puerto Ricans, po- 1 ce attacks against Spanish- speaking citizens were so intense that "some of the innocent and frightened victims telephoned the governor of Puerto R.*co for rescue."

LONDON (AP) — The House of Lords Tuesday night rejected a government proposal to allow 13-year-olds to marry without •heir parents' consent after Baroness Summerskill claimed well developed miniskirted girls would be trapping "poor little boys" into marriage. The Lords voted by 77-71 to reduce the legal marriage age only one year—to 20. The Labor government is expected to restore its marriage-at-18 proposal when the bill returns to the House of Commons for final vote. "I know the power of my sex when it is young," said the bar cness, a veteran Laborlte and former Cabinet member. "Look at all those marvellous girls in their miniskirts with their fine straight legs walking along full of confidence and the poor little boys with their whistles desperately trying to show these magnificent creatures they are their equals."
