EDITORS NOTE: The follow-ing is the second part in a day-by-day account of the recent trip to China by a party of six American governors. The account was written for United Press International by Mrs. Robert D. Ray, wife of Iowa's governor. Mrs. Ray’s comments are taken directly from her diary, as she wrote them for UPI. This is the second of the five-part series. By Mrs. Retort D. Ray Written tor UPI May 17, Peking — Met and talked with “feng Sheng neighborhood committee” members in one of Peking’s districts. The committee room was furnished with a long table and chairs and a large picture of Chairman Mao at one end and a framed poem of his at the other. Served clear amber tea in large tea cups with lids. No kitchen facilities. Hot water brought in thermos. No one drinks what hasn’t been boiled. We walked to two different homes. The first had four small rooms and nine people live here. The rooms surround an open area (sort of a courtyard) and different families are given certain rooms. Rooms very small. Hardwood tods. The people say this is a better life than they have ever had. A reminder of the old was evident by the tiny bound feet of the older women. Visited the nursery school where the children sang for us. Some of the lyrics were, “How lucky we are to to born under the rule of Chairman Mao Tse-tung because we will have such good pensions when we grow old.’’ The entire program centered around this theme and their desire for “friendship.” From there, we visited a health care center where three volunteer housewives, known as “barefoot doctors,” explained to us their duties. They do mostly first aid, dispense health information and free contraceptives and provide family planning assistance. While the governors then attended a meeting with Vice-Foreign Minister Chi’iao Kuanhua, Blanche Anderson, the wife of Don Anderson, an officer at the U. S. liaison office in China, took us shopping. Friendship Store Most shopping by foreign visitors is done at the “Friendship Store”, which sells the products made at the artistic handicraft factories. They also merchandise some food, clothing and furniture. That evening we were shown two documentary movies at the International club. One depict ed women working on power lines and stressed how happy everyone was working. The other dealt mostly with agricultural production. It showed what seemed to us to be very primitive methods. While recognizing they have agricultural production shortcomings, they are, nonetheless, proud of the advancements they have made. • * * May 18, Peking — We left Peking hotel and traveled on a ten-lane street called “Chang en”. It is crowded with bicycles and carts, and traffic policemen are stationed every block or two. Since they seem to to little burdened with work I just assume that this activity provides people with a job. As we entered Peking university, a large sign greeted us: “Serve the People.” Peking university was built in 1898, but seemed much older to me. It, as all universities, was closed during the thrust of the cultural revolution, 1966-69 Of the 2,700 students now enrolled, the only ones we saw were in an English class we visited. The students presented a dialogue to show us how well they spoke English after two months in the class. The “dialogue” pertained to family living and ended with the typical phrase: “Thanks to Chairman Mao, we are living a happy life.” Students not on campus were back in the fields which is required part time for their training. Example Of Wrong We drove to the Summer palace, which was once the residence of Empress Dowager, beginning in 1734. It later burned and was reconstructed in 1902 Today they justify showing it in its majestic and enormous form as an example of what was wrong with class living before the revolution. That evening we watched the finals of a five-nation table tennis tournament. Again, the people gaze at us as items of curiosity. No popcorn; no hot dogs at the tournament — just the usual orange soda. Korea won the girls’ competition and Japan took the men’s division. Disappointing, I’m sure, for the world’s champion to lose in front of the hometown crowd. The people came to the tournament in buses and on bikes. I’m amazed that they don’t get bikes mixed up. They all look alike and there are thousands of them (the bicycles, I mean). * * * May 19, Peking — At 7 a.rn., Bob and I took a walk to Tien An men square. Even this early, hundreds of people were on the streets. We saw no churches, although we were told a few exist. Most all are apparently non-believers in any hereafter. Again, people friendly but we are the subject of staring. We went to the Ming tombs at 9 a.rn. It was a 40-minute car drive to the tombs, through streets filled with bicycles, hand carts piled high with vegetables, stones, brick, and most everything. I’m still looking for my first Chinese gas station. Along the way we asked the interpreter more about how the people live. No Plumbing In Home The homes have virtually no refrigeration or indoor plumbing. People buy vegetables at an open market for one day at a time. There are public bath houses with tubs where the water may be brought in Baths are taken once or twice a week in the winter and every day in the summer. Most homes are rented from the state in the rural areas, but some can build their own. In the cities, all homes are rented from the state. The price is right but you don’t get any more than you pay for. We arrive at the tomb Enormous — made of marble. Many jewels were buried with the emperor, but they have been removed to a museum. We joined the Chinese tourists and descended into the tomb. We were told it took 30,000 people six years to build and was started when the emperor was 24 years old. He died at 47. After walking through the tomb, since the Chinese are informal but very prompt and they have a rigid schedule for us, we left for the Great Wall. We moved a considerable distance into the mountains. Although there is little motor vehicular travel our drivers drove with their car horns most of the time. So we avoided trouble on curves and narrow roads which are never free of people, carts and bicycles. The wall was truly amazing and a spectacular sight. We were given time to walk to its highest point. It was a tough and strenuous climb and I would think impossible ii it had been wet. The construction of the wall began around 221 B.C. and it is wide enough for five horses or IO persons. However, no horses could climb the area where we were. Some general comments on our final day in Peking: Bob was unable to meet the mother of an Iowa state university professor who lived in Peking. No reason given. I’m surprised at various heights of men and women. China’s streets are quite clean but pollution in the air pretty evident. oLJea r By Abigail Van Barm DEAR ABBY: My 16-year-old granddaughter is pregnant. The boy is a high school kid with no way of supporting himself, let alone a wife and child, so marriage is out of the question. His folks have thrown him out and a neighbor has taken him in. My son and daughter-in-law are going to see their daughter through this and they’re keeping the baby. My problem: How should a 75-year-old grandmother act? Should I act like nothing out of the ordinary has happened and accept the baby as a legitimate great-grandchild? Or should I show my contempt and disgust and turn away? I guess I was born 75 years too soon because I don’t seem able to accept this situation. So far I’ve managed to keep my mouth shut, but I’ll have to take a stand soon. I’ve always had a good relationship with my son and his wife and don’t want to spoil it now. Please help me set my thinking straight. GRANDMA DEAK GRANDMA: lf year family ever needed year cem-passien and understanding, ifs new. Yea caa accept the new baby witheut condoning the unfortunate circumstances. The last thing your granddaughter needs new is a shew of “contempt and disgust.” (She’s suffered enough.) * • * DEAR ABBY: Concerning the expression “to gyp” someone hav ing come from the word “gypsy”: My personal pet peeve is the phrase “he Jewed me down.” And in this day of auctions, thrift shops, flea markets, etc , it is distressingly frequent. My technique is to ask the “Jew-cr downer” to teach me his bargaining techniques because I d like to know how to “Gentile” somebody down. All but the most thickheaded clods seem to get the message. Let s hear it for good old Christian charity. NANCY SENTER, LOS ANGELES.
