18-Palm Beach Post. Friday. Nov. 22. 1968 Mao's Revolution Spawning Political Fanatics HONG KON'G (LTIi -Chairman Mao Tse-tung's cultural revolution is spawning a generation of political fanatics devoid of a basic education and taught to regard intellectuals as enemies ol the state This is the picture that emerges from a study by China analysts attached to the American Consulate General in Hong Kong after a recent assessment of developments on the mainland. Education has been a major casualtv of the three vear fraction" of the graduating students is selected for college training. An article in the party publication Red Flag set out the reasons for these "reforms" on Aug. 25 and middle schooling and senior middle schooling, equivalent to high schooling, has been eliminated as "too bourgeois." Nine years of schooling is all a student can have in China now. There is a period of farm or factory labor lasting four years after graduation and when this is completed "a REFITS DMTIICS some. ". . . Red Guards are being sent unceremoniously to farms and factories, sometimes tor lite. " the study said. For those left to attend classes, formal study of basic subjects has been replaced by lessons in political indoctrination. "Both in adult classes and in the schools the highest priority is given to the creative study and thought of Mao Tsetung," the report said. Additionally, four years had been slashed from elementary lay -Ha-rTlj N I' J bers of student age young people apparently are not going back to school" the report said. Numbered among them are the former Red Guards, now ordered disbanded and powerless. "There is only one place for former Red Guards to go under the new rules; to work. "It is apparent that the entire middle-school graduating class of 1967 and 1968 - who did not really graduate are being sent to the farms and factories to do manual labor." the American analyst said. In some localities, they added, "the movement extends even to primary school graduates." Whether former students ordered to work will ever return to their studies is not known but the chances are slim for m Miracle plasiic DENTUR1TE fefits loose dentures in five minutes.

A report of the study released Friday termed the damage done to schools as "one of the most lasting legacies of this turbulent time." China's schools simply ceased to function during academic years 1966-67 and 1967-68. the study states, the unleashing of youthful Red Guards who roamed the country on Mao's crusade for pure communism in that period virtually emptied the classrooms. With their newly bestowed powers, students were encouraged to turn on their teachers who. as "intellectuals, were a primary target." "And the Ked Guard onslaught, whatever control school teachers had over their students dissolved." the U. S. report said. "The pre 1966 curriculum was denounced as both not revolutionary enough and not practical." Only in the "past few-months" have Chinese schools been permitted to reopen as the progress of the cultural revolution moved from chaos to consolidation of Mao's victories in the struggle against "revisionism." Evidence of a back to school movement has reached this listening post in publications and monitored radio broadcasts. Radio Canton Broadcast on Oct. 12 that 700.-000 primary and middle school students were returning to classrooms in that south China city. "This has been a large task" the American report stated, "considering the demoralized teachers and undisciplined students." Nor have conditions returned to the pre 1966 period.
