Beall and Mrs. Jerry Cullom were 'high Mao's Thinking Sells Melons By WILLIAM L. RYAN 1 AP Special Correspondent Chou Hsin-li is a district man ager of the "Shanghai Municipal Fruit & Sundry Goods Co.' He is a crashing success. "He is a success because hf sold ripe watermelons on a glut ted market. He did this 05 applying Mao Tze-tung's think ing. "on contradiction." ,.."0n contradiction" was written about Communist tactics in war, but Chou Hsin-li has found one can apply it to watermelons. - Chou wrote about this in an article entitled "Let us talk about the philosophy of selling watermelons in the big cities." It appeared in Liberation Army Daily — leading voice of a current Chinese Communist party purge — and other papers. People in high places are being purged because they do not sufficiently value Mao's thinking. It's not only in politics and the sale of watermelons, either. The Red Chinese say they won three internation table tennis tourneys by applying Mao's thinking to the problem. They've three nuclear explosions. How did they do it. They studied Mao Tze-tung's thinking. ' Mao's thinking is the battle cry of the purge aimed, as the press puts it, at "eradication of wrong attitudes. Wrong attitudes are held by revisionists who think like Russians and do not seriously study Mao Tze- tung's works. The Russians have been having a bit of fun about this at Chinese expense. • In the summer of 1963 the Municipal Fruit & Sundry Goods Co was inundated by watermelons and the staff felt "overwhelmed and simply hopeless." Watermelons rotted. * * * Came summer, 1964. Chou Hsin-li sent his staff to investigate. It was awed by the pros- ect of a 50 per cent rise in ripe summertime .watermelons. Mao had written that "there Is nothing that does not contain contradictions." .Well, says Chou, you '"make a careful analysis of the contradictions." You conclude that "the problem is in contradiction between the heavy rush of supplies in a limited period and the use of the sales force. This exposure of contradictions helped the staff to see the size and nature of the problems to be tackled." Mao had said one must "concentrate on a superior force to destroy the enemy forces one by one." 1 Watermelons were the superior force. The manager enlisted hundreds of his staff to concentrate on watermelons, forgetting tfi(£"sundry goods." They gave It the old Chinese hard sell. When he saw the watermelons selling, reported manager Chou, "It made me cry." "It made me realize deeply that the reason for our success in selling watermelons was completely attributed to the in- i- vincible might of Mao Tze- i- lung's thinking," said Chou. Prospects are for more ripe watermelons this summer than ever before. Says manager cnou: "Wei . organize the masses of cadres :- to expose full the contradiction involved in the sale of watermelons and set up a program for studying Mao Tze-tung's for those workers who are frightened at the thought of having too many watermelons to sell."
