H-Palm Beach Post, Wednesday, Nov. 27, 1968 Political Purges Still Persist In Red China i Si ' 1 1 t s r - and by the crackdown on turbulence carried out by security forces 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 offices, called for continued pursuit of cultural revolution objectives and announced preparations lor the convening of a new-party congress. The country is now in the process of following through ICl N Y.Tirrm Newsservice HO.N(j KONG - ( ommunist China has moved into a quieter phase of the great proletarian cultural revolution but in a comparative sense only. The violence and disruption of earlier tempestuous periods of the Maoist campaign against revisionism no longer prevail, but political purging and the factional struggle persist and promise an indeluute future ol vicissitudes and uncertainty. The present relative stability has been brought about by the recent completion ol the country s new ruling structure of revolutionary committees FOR DISTINGUISHED RESORT FASHIONS Offering Our laual Fine Selection of Distinguished Clothes for Dress and Casual Wear (Sim 8 to 44 and half sizes V2Vi to 22Vi) SEK lirauiter Modern 'Myths' Believed Dying BIG FLYING-BIRD BIZZ is the current hot rumor around Florida and along the local Gold Coast, with even-one hearing, reading and helping to spread hints concerntng'the probable reasons and possible outcome of Florida Gov. Claude Kirk Jr.'s continuing discussions with United Aircraft top brass. With the Pratt-W hitney 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 Country Club of Florida (out west of Delray-Bo:iton 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 now rooftree at Palm Beach, as has been recently rumored around the town. The gubernatorial home-awav-trom-home-that is. away from the Governor and Mrs. Kirk's official residence in Tallahassee will continue to be the verv 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. (The new Hefner resi- with central committee designs, and the result is discordant. 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 Pao 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 pariah status "under the.sjt pp-rv.ik-5wrf-t frenrasses". In the context of the factional antagonisms rife 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 lo 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 , with farm work. raiicA DELRAY BEACH PALM FT.

The same is true for when the medieval and modern myths broke down. Then you had the frantic fear of 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 quackery. 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. But for the last 20 or lit) 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, subjectivity and collectivism, and will downgrade self-aggrandt?.e- We don't understand the power of and thirst for 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 ol 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.

Dr. May is a leader ol the existential school of analysis, which has modified Freud's teachings with subjective insights of existential philosophers from Kierkegaard to Sartre. "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 of a p.ittern of life, arising out of the unconscious, that carries the values for a society and gives a person the ability to handle anxiety, to tace death, to deal with guilt. It gives him an identity.'' The modern age. he said has ridiculed myth or explained it away because its own myths, born out ot the death ot the Middle Ages, are rationalism - a faith in technical reason and individualism.
