Million Worth So Far Red China's Goods aring in U.S. NEW YORK .(AP) - Lotus paste, porcelain tea sets, and bamboo cigarette holders from mainland China are beginning to fill nooks of some Chinatown stops here and in San Fracisco. Foodstuffs, delicate porcelains and trinkets made iii the People's Republic of China first became available to Chinatown residents this past summer. The U.S. Commerce Department says approximately $1 million worth of goods have been imported from mainland China since the Nixon administration made sale of such merchandise legal. Nearly 85 per cent of the imports so far has been specialty foods, the Commerce Department reports. They're Curious Merchants here and 'in San Francisco said their customers buy the Imports chiefly because they are curious about the quality or workmanship of goods made in "Red China." One reason the demand' for imports from mainland China has remained relatively small, shopkeepers said, is their high cost. "Th,e products are expensive because most now come through Canada," explained Bruce Jang, manager of Wo Kee, a San Francisco import house. "Canada must pay a duty and we have to pay additional freight, import costs and handling. It's quite high to vhat is offered in Hong Kong and Taiwan." A merchant in New York's 3hinatown concurred. He said he must price the pair of blue ceramic dogs he imported from mainland China at $9.95. The same merchandise from Japan could be sold for $6, he noted. Chinese delicacies also cost more when imported from mainland China. On the West Coast, for inr stance,. a tin of moon cakes rom mainland China would sell for about $5.50. Domestically prepared moon cakes might cost' $4.50 a tin. Eggs 20 Cents A sampling of prices for other mainland foods available in San Francisco's Chinatown showed preserved duck eggs at 20 cents each, lotus paste at 75 cents per tin, cans of pickled Small Crowd ORLANDO, (AP) ,Workmen poured concrete and planted palm trees on the sprawling $400 million Disney World entertainment-vacation complex Friday as a sparse opening day crowd mingled with dancing bears and strolling minstrels. Central Florida traffic experts were prepared for a massive backlog of cars that never materialized. Although Disney officials said no crowd estimate would be available until mid-evening, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Jim Humphreys said-they gave him 'an unofficial turnstile cot|nt at noon of 2,; "If we get a total of 12,000 on opening day we'll be. very happy," said 'Charley. Ridgway, Disney World spokesman. ' Workmen labored around the clock to get the huge .amusement, park and hotels ready but of the fiv.e. theme areas in the Magic.: .Kingdom, .one, .Tomor- rowland, offered only one attraction, and three of the other four-Adventurelandi- Frontier- land ' and Fantasyland-were only partially ready. Main Street tlSA.was finished. vegetables at 65 cents, and fried dace—a small fresh water fish-at $1 to $1.25 a tin. All these items were more expensive than similar goods imported from other countries or produced locally. Higher prices are the rule on almost all the stock- at New York's Chinese Native Products, opened several weeks ago by Mr. and Mrs. M.Y. Chen and possibly the only store in the country to specialize in Chinese mainland goods. The Chens, who deal primarily in'canned foods and chinaware, imported their merchandise through Hong Kong, but even though they bypassed the added costs of snipping through Canada, thsir goods still appeared to be more expensive than similar things produced elsewhere. Chinese Sing, Dance H TWT1 9 11/1" O ut Where s Mao: TOKYO (AP) — Chinese danced and sang in Peking's parks Friday on National Day and shouted "long live Chairman Mao," a broadcast from Red China's capital reported. Mao, the center of speculation about recent puzzling events in China, did not appear on this 22nd anniversary of the found- ng of his regime, although he was in the spotlight at all previous national Day celebrations. Premier Chou En-lai and .esser officials went to Yi Ho Park and celebrated the day with "the revolutionary masses of the capital," Radio Peking said. Park Discussions Celebrations ranged from discussions in the parks of what the Chinese had learned from the study of works of Mao, Marx and Lenin, to performances by Mao thought-propaganda teams, the radio said. Japanese correspondents in Peking agreed the capital was in holiday mood. A correspondent for Kyodo News Service said "the Chinese appeared to be in a festive spirit as the Oct. 1 National Day celebrations were held in Peking and other major cities." .
