It is hard to find the way. Coming back to the home nf his boyhood, a man finds It hard to forgive the changes. He has a vague resentment that things don't stay just as he left lhoni,,,ji)Sl as he holds them in memory. He misses the neighbors who have died or moved away. Who cut down tliat tree in Ihe back yard he climbed as n kid? The patch of blue sky looks bare and new. And the elm tree in the front yard. How did it ever get that tall?" Somehow he feels a stranger fh the old house, lonesome because H has changed as much as he has. He has !osL some hair and got a new false tooth. And it has been shingled, papered and modernized with a new sink, another bathroom and a fine gas furnace, A Lost Feeling I always have this lost feeling momentarily when I return to visit our family home here.

This will be the first year of the l>tg purge within Ihe Chinese Communist party sfnee Ihe Red regime was established 2'a years afio. The death knell for untold numbers of China's unwieldy Rfcd jiarly —List reported at 5,800,000 mem- sounded in a recent Peip! tig's authoritative bers—was edition of H.s'uch-hsl (Study) magazine. The magazine interprets Com- jmimst policy for the people who have to carry out that policy. Us page, 1 ; are regarded as gospel in Red China. Hsueh-hsi reported the campaign "to purify the this year and parly" is "nil our coming c (id res every party member, will receive ground threatening surrounding nations. Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq. Saudi Arabia and Egypt have rushed in experts to help Jordan fight the locusts. FAO v:arned that (he locust menace may be a new threat to the political stability of the Middle East. I "While desert -.ocusls devour the: people's food, the countries of thej Middle East, many of them young i and nnly at the threshold of sound ! economic life, cannot, hope to reap] any of the benefits of their own | efforts or of bilateral or in!erna-j tional programs to modernize or' strengthen iheir economies." FAO has allocated $500,000 of its j .slender budget lo the fight. Il saidt Ibis represents only five per cenii of u'hat nations are spending either! directly or indirectly through such! organizations as the British Desert! Locust Control in East Africa, a lost of a mass character in this struggle." The magazine said the "infiltration of bourgeois Influence" would be the main target. "Every party member." said Hsueh-hsi, " realize the grave threat of bourgeois corrosion to the Communt&t parly. They must know that the evil roots of Individualism, if not removed with determination, will develop :md nourish the greatest harm. We should cleanse the parly of those people who are opposed to the proletarian mentality and are beyond redemption." The magazine hinted the purge would be aimed particularly at political opportunists who Jumped on the Red bandwagon when the Communists wrested power from the beaten Chinese Nationalist regime between February, 3949. and July 1950. In that period it was reported (he party membership climbed from ihree million to five million. Hsueh- hsi called specifically for an investigation of pnrty members "who did not join the revolution and the l«my on pure motives."
