But neither Liu Pang nor his successor*, found they could govern long without the support of the respected scholar class. It was during the Han dynasty which, with tone- interruption, ruled China for the next 400 years, that the basic and enduring features, of the Chinese way of government wet* established. , - .. Centuries before, the philosophers had taught that all mankind ought to belong-to the' game nation, the same."Great Society?!.Now that the totalitarian Legalist school ww deposed, Confucianism began to. revive. Following the Confucian ideal that the most able men should govern, an early form of civil service examinations .was begun. Those who •passed were called mandarins and became officials in the state.bureaucracy. During the 53-year reign of the greatest of .the Han emperors, Wu Ti (140-87 RC.), Confucianism was proclaimed the official cult of the state. Under Wu Ti, and after him, Chinese arms penetrated in all directions, from Korea-to modern Viet Nam to deep into, central Asia. On. one occasion, in 36 B.C., Chinese soldiers are believed to have actually 'encountered Roman- legionaries somewhere. .east of the 'Caspian Sea. According to Ssu-ma Ch'ien, called the father of Chinese history, the early days of Han were prosperous.. Toe granaries, over* flowed and the government had so much surplus cash that the strings tying it rotted. The. wars 'of Wu' Ti, waged both for glory- and to push back the' barbarians who were-, 'ever ready'to pounce on China, took care of. this. Wu Ti also extended the Great Wall and founded Central University at the capital, Ch'angan. Near the end of the dynasty it boasted more than 30,000 students. He decreed that prices were to be regulated by the state by buying grain and other staples when they were plentiful and cheap and. selling them when prices began to rise. Salt and' The reign of Wu Ti saw the first of thre» , famous attempts to apply socialistic principles to the building of the Great Society. The next experiment came about a century after him. NEXT: Socialism and Silk He Replaced Don Drysdale By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer ; HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The young man's name is John Garfield Jr., and you recognize his parentage immediately. You see the same deep-burn tag eyes, the easily-rumpl brow, th square cheekbones You also catch glimpss of th same in.ensive energy. The on! jarring note is his height — i towering 6-feet-2 vs. his fatehr' 6-9. Young Garfield has come t .Hollywood at age 22 — his fa ther was 30 before he made the journey.

Kit IBU HMpltMMtMn By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - On Wall Street they favor high-sounding phrases like "excessive speculation" and "wise investing". But if these and other descriptions of stock market activity confuse you, remember that brokers and financial experts are just human beings. And like you, they use terms they think will put matters in the best light. Or maybe sometimes the phrases are designed to hide the speaker's own confusion. All you need is a primer that translates the jargon. Here are some terms often heard, and what the Wall Street denizen may really mean: Excessive speculation — what he other fellow is doing. Wise investing — what we are doing. * * * Technical correction In stock prices — buyers who ran prices up fast are now selling even faster. Glamour stocks — shares we bought and would now like to sell to you — at a still higher price than we paid. Slow-moving quality stocks — looked like a sure thing when we bought them, but now there's not a fast buck in a carload. Selective market — your stocks went down; your mother- in-law's went up. * * * Writers of market letters have a line of double-talk all their own. If the pronouncements of brokerage houses occasionally puzzle you, here are some interpretations now making the rounds of Wall Street luncheon tables: "This stock has growth characteristics." Double - talk for: "This year may be better than last year." "Chart action shows this stock to be building a base." — "The wretched thing just hasn't moved." * * * One list of the more complicated brokerabe house advisory pronouncements, with simplified explanations, has been iderit of Avnet Inc. Some of his favorites: "This undervalued special situation is a vehicle for dynamic capital gains, has explosive potential, is pointed for action." — "stocks look okay." "This stock, while suitable for long-term investors, may be considered to have reached its intermediate objective." — "We're out." Or perhaps you may have wondered about the meaning of this: "The market looks to be in a broad trading range." In other words: "Our chartist didn't show up this morning."
