14-PaIm Beach Post, Wednesday, Nov. 27, 1968 Political Purges Still Persist In Red China in 4? - "V f (CI IH! N. Y Times News Service IIO.M. KONG - Communist China has moved into a quieter phase of the great proletarian cultural revolution but in a comparative sense only The violence and disruption ot earlier tempestuous periods ol the Maoist campaign against revisionism no longer prevail, but political purging and the factional struggle persist and promise an indchnite luture ol vicissitudes and uncertainty. The present relative stability has been brought about by the recent completion ol the country's new ruling structure ol revolutionary committees and by the crackdown on turbulence carried out by secun-tv torces under the committees. The central committee of the Chinese Communist party in late October put the seal of party approval on the new structure, expelled the cultural revolutions main target, chief of state Liu Shao-chi. from party and state ollices. called for continued pursuit of cultural revolution objectives and announced preparations for the convening of a new party congress The country is now in the process ol following through i r u Modern 'Myths' Believed Dying BIG FLYING-BIRD BIZZ is the current hot rumor around Florida and along the local Gold Coast, with everyone hearing, reading and helping to spread hints concerning the probable reasons and possible outcome of Florida Gov. Claude Kirk Jr.'s continuing discussions with United Aircraft top brass. With the Pratt-Whitney end of United Aircraft's activities already represented in Florida by their huge plant out northwest of the Palm Beaches, the talk is that the governor is angling for more United Aircraft-P.W. industrial-research plants in our state . . . WE HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE TIDBIT OR TWO to add to the foregoing: Mayhap y'all will be interested to learn that United Aircraft's top man. President William P. Gwinn, has purchased a homesite on the grounds of the very swank Coui try Club of Florida (out west of Delray-Boynton Beach); and has become a member of the Delray Beach Yacht Club, where the Gwinn yacht "Leilanie" is due for the Thanksgiving holidays. Oh, of course the addition of Mr. and Mrs. Gwinn to the lists of prominent winter colonists in the Palm Beaches doesn't necessarily mean Mr. Gwinn will be moving his business headquarters from Hartford. Conn., to local envi--ons. But let's just suppose that Sikorsky Aviation, which is .et another subsidiary corporation of United Aircraft, were to open up a Florida plant. That would mean two large U.A. subsidiaries in Florida, wouldn't it? And wouldn't that mean Mr. Gwinn might find it necessary to spend more time here. . .? Speaking of the governor, we are reliablv informed that his charming missis is .NOT house-hunting for a new roof tree at Palm Beach, as has been recently rumored around the town. The gubernatorial home-awav-from-home-that is. away from the Governor and Mrs. Kirk's official residence in Tallahassee - will continue to be the very charming "Duck's Nest" estate on North Lake Trail in Palm Beach. And there is another distinguished new property owners out at the aforementioned Country Club of Florida, La France Industries President Henry Hefner.

Reconstituting the party organization throughout the country in preparation for the forthcoming congress has led to continued factional conflicts between new Maoist activists seeking positions of influence in local party ranks and older party men who survived Maoist batterings by throwing in their lot with the cultural revolution. The Wen Hui Fao of Shanghai pointed up this problem recently in an editorial complaining that "old hands" were still dominant in many party branches and were not only keeping out new blood in the persons of "rebel revolutionaries" who had achieved prominence in the cultural revolution but were even attempting to oust "rebels" who had already been taken into organs of power. The paper condemned old cadres who took the attitude that party rebuilding was now their responsibility and who seemed animated by a spirit of vengeance against "rebels" who had been used by the Peking leaders in earlier phases of the cultural revolution to purge, humiliate and remold the entrenched bureaucracy. Along with party reconstruction, continued drives to "clean up the class ranks." further develop Maoist indoctrination of old and new cadres and complete the "repudiation" of former chief of stage Liu are all contributing to a state of constant agitation and dissension. Propaganda organs persistently warn that "cleaning up the class ranks" must not lag. and radio and press daily report, successes from all over the country in uncovering troublemakers of bourgeois origin "hidden deep within the masses. " These "class enemies" are "dragged out" for prolonged public denunciation and eventual condemnation to jitrii!h.lalus..i!3ulcrthu.j-4iJ. pervisionof the masses." In the context of the factional antagonisms rile on the China mainland it is evident that "class enemy" in many circumstances is a label one faction or individual uses against others to justify crackdowns on rivals. The drive to improve the Maoist orientation of members of the new mandarinate has led to a countrywide program of manual labor on farms and in factories for both new and old cadres and of retraining at country cadre schools that combine study w ith farm work. ;ixt 'A- I z&A T tionlessness and the individual running away from himself.' The same is true for when the medieval and modern myths broke down. Then you had the frantic fear ol death, witchcraft, sorcery and. in painting, the wold surrealism of a man like Bosch. In our day it's LSD. hippies, touch therapy, the boom in psychoanalysis, all sorts of fads and quackeiy. It's the same phenomenon." Dr. May believes that the rise and decline of a society's dominant myths are traceable in its art. "In America these myths took the form of the frontier myth and the Horatio Alger myth. Hut lor the last 20 or :!() years neither of these has been relevant." In his view the modern myths, now dying, stressed objectivity, competition, nationalism, the faith that problems could be solved by the amassing and projection of technical data. Those ol the new age. he believes, will stress cooperation, subjectivi- U . .a n.(.L..!.:o.Lle(:Li.v.U and . .wtl! downgrade sell aggrandizement. We don't understand the power of and thirst lor myth. Hitler rode to power on a myth and he succeeded because he went up against rational intellectuals who didn't understand its power. George Wallace has hold ot a myth, and black power is a powerful myth." Dr. May views current violence and racial tension as signs that the present situation is a "limbo" between myths that can integrate individuals and give people a framework for coping with their lives. l C I 1968 New York Times News Service KW VOKK - It is the be-liel of Dr. Hollo May. the psychoanalyst and author, that one sign that the modern age is dying is that its myths are disintegrating Dr. May is a leader of the existential school of analysis, which has modified r'reud's teachings with subjective insights of existential philosophers from Kierkegaard to Sari re. A myth is not a falsehood or necessarily a story, he said in a recent interview in his Riverside Drive apartment ' It s a description ol a pattern of life, arising out of the unconscious, that carries the values tor a society and gives a person the ability to handle anxiety, to lace death, to deal with guilt. It gives hi m an identity.'' The modern age. he said has ri die ul ed my t h o r explained it away because its own mvths. born out ol the death ol the Middle Ages, are rationalism a faith in technical reason - and individualism ..)jiU....!-Uiut.lL.i;iy...ilua times.. ha been the myth of a myth-less society .' he said.

According to no less an authority than Dawson Newton, distinguished vice president of the Oceanography Development Corp., who has actually visited aboard the Christina when she was an overnight visitor to Palm Beach: "The Palm Beach turn basin can take ocean going vessels twice the length of Christina . . ." But our friends persisted that when the new Mrs. Onassis does her travelling in the future, it will be aboard a private plane "the approximate size of Air Force One. . tastefully decorated, and hung with Rembrandts. . ." We thought the remarks amusing enough to repeat at several tea and cocktail events, until we heard the latest story out of Europe concerning the Onassis not the tale which alleges An Onassis will be the next president of Greece, but an apparently well founded report that the Onassjs will in-Continued on Page 15 ITOCKGOODTHBUWID.NOV.27U, 1 swifTS I I i tmmXtWBMWm: "!j rTv-Jy-N JEWEL , u dm V Fooo3rlmjl s JtP sy and camo" t&5i j M.,hv.nI. - Ii.a.n.,,, yj 5 oder or ove Playing Dec. 6,7 and Dec. 10,11,12,13,14 . points MIU.ARY ia s .lvd tKIRVED Vvwv I ""'""'"a "goalie.
