10 Gafesburg Register-Moil, Golesbura, III. Tuesday, Aug. 7,1973 China Recovering From Cultural Revolution Trauma By PHIL NBWSOM TJPl Foreign News Analyst Coming weeks are expected to A ,t *H >vide new evidence of titinnY recovery from the trauma of its cultural revolution. yprtlfli News Commentary Predfctioos are that the 10th congress of the Chinese Communist party is to be convened either in August or September, probably to be followed by the Fouifflh National Peoples ..Congress, the equivalent of parliament. Convening of the two bodfes, both long delayed, could mean the naming of a new successor to Chairman Mao Tse-tung and the filling of important posts vacant as result of the internal turmoil of recent years. The party congress is supposed to meet annually but has not met sinca the Ninth party congress of April 1-24, 1969. The National Peoples Con gr«s§ ha« not met since January, 19te. The two are the highest organs of the party and state respectively. Lin to Be Condemned Their resumption of activity would symbolize the regime's new confidence as it moves to enhance China's influence abroad and to- strengthen its political and economic position at home. One important task of the 10th party congress presumably will be to condAnft officially Marshal Lin Piao, named by the Ninth party congress as Mao's successor but * accused later of plotting to depose him. Lin was killed in a plane crash in Mongolia in September, 1971, allegedly while drying to flee to Russia alter discovery of his plot. No one has been named either to take the spot immediately below Moa or to the post of defense minister which Lin also held. Likewise, the post of chief of the general staff of the three* million-man People's Liberation Army (PLA) remains open. It was held by Huang Yung-Sheng Who, along with (tie air force coiTnnano>er, aisappeansa at ine same time as Lin. the fate of the latter two is unknown. Other impofiuiat tasks facing the 10th congress is a vote on a new constitution and replacement of about half of the 25, member politiburo. Death or disgrace overtook many OK UK memoen ounng the yean of turmoil. The average age of the Politburo la about 70 and is mown no ne of special concern to Mao who worries that younger men will fail to press the cause of the Chinese revolution for more than do years men wno awuHspwuea Mao on the long retreat to Yunan have formed the back- Done or «ie party jeooarsnip. As to the question of Mao's successor, Premier Chou En-lai has been acting as Mao's righthand man and would mm to be the logical successor, hut only as a temporary one until a new lewder emegres. Another top job that remains open is that of chairman of the Peoples' Republic of China (head of state). Arab Terrorists May Have Hit Wrong Target By JOHN RIGOS ^ ATHENS (UPI) - Two Arabs who opened fire with grenades and submachine guns Sunday on passengers waiting to board a flight to New York apparently thought they were attacking passengers bound for Tel Aviv, police said Monday. The Tel Aviv-bound passen gers had boarded their plane and were already on the runway when the terrorists attacked, killing three persons and wounding 55. They took off safely during the attack, apparently unaware Poyton Upholstery & Auto Trim Shop Are Now In Their New Building at 454 S. Henderson St. NOW OPEN FOR BUSINESS , 'that they were the intended victims. Both flights involved Trans World Airlines and were scheduled only a few minutes apart. After interrogating the two Arabs, police said they apparently bungled the attack despite Retailed planning. After Jews? "They said they came to kill passengers for Tel Aviv," a police spokesman said, "but obviously made, a mistake." Twenty-five of the wounded remained in hospitals today. Greek police said the attack was well planned and quoted the two Arabs as saying they visited the airport earlier to plan the assault. They told police, a police spokesman said, that they picked up flight bags containing their weapons of hand grenades and submachine guns from hiding places near the transit lounge. Toilet Bag "One said he received. the weapons, four grenades and two submachine guns, in an airline bag in the toilet of the transit lounge," a police spokesman said. "The other said he got his bag in the transit area behind a column. Both had been to Athens on at least one occasion to study their operation." The Arabs were identified as Zemod Mohamed, 23, and Taloot Husham, 21, both Pales- 1 tinians. They said they N were members of Black September, an extremist guerrilla group that carried out the Munich Olympics massacre, 11 months ago. But main Palestinian guerrilla groups denied responsibility for the Athens attack. Some Palestinians blamed the attack on "Zionist" agents. Authorities said Greece would prosecute the two Arabs, an apparent switch in policy since Arab terrorists earlier were allowed to leave the country. The Foreign Ministry branded the airport attack "detestable." The three victims were Mrs. Jeanie Salandi, 23, of Highland Park, N.J., Albert Kerson, 53, of Union, N.J. and Wolfgang Ulfhofen, an Austrian lawyer.
