Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 44 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Wodnesday, April 11, 1973 Sparse dormitory Peng You-chow misses her family but the party knows 'best. Class struggle continued Page 33 in the cities after the wars and took up positions of re- sponsibility, they began to as- sume an air of superiority, and became divorced from the broad masses of the peo- ple. "By 1966. most of them had been divorced from phys- ical labor for a very long time, and definitely consider- ed themselves to be a sep- arate class. If things were allowed to develop like this it would have been very dan- gerous, as they would have become out-and-out revision- ists, and the state would have changed color, becoming cap- italist. "Chairman Mao saw this, and determined to see that they regained their proletar- ian consciousness through in- tegrating with the broad masses of the peasants. By working alongside the peas- ants, they cculd learn once again the importance of liv- ing a simple life, according to the spirit of hard work and self-reliance. Above all, they could regenerate their love for the Party and for Chair- man Mao." SATISFIED Ko paused, lit another cig- arette, and glanced around the table at the faces of his colleagues, as if seeking tacit endorsement of his exposi- tion. "Perhaps it was not so easy for some of our veteran cad- res to make up their minds to leave their comfortable lives in the city and go down to the countryside. There some who even made excuses, hoping to avoid the hard stuggle of re-education. But in the end almost all of them came, and soon buckled down to a simple routine of manual labor and study. "In a short time, attitudes began to change. For exam- ple, one cadre thought noth- ing of wasting 300 Yuan (S150) by carelessness, before he came here. But by work- ing alongside the peasants in tie field, he came to realize that every ear of grain has been earned by the sweat of a man's brxnv. A'ow. he will walk 10 kilometres (six miles) to pick up an old brick from a river bed, rath- er than use a new one. "Another man has under- gone an even more remark- able transformation. After fighting in foe Liberation War, he becaine the man- ager of a textile compny in Canton, and soon adopted re- visionist ways, like so many other cadres of similar back- ground. Under the influence of Liu Shao-cha. he becaine officious, behaving like an overlord over the peopJe, CARELESS "He w a 5 careless, and showed a wrong aiSiiJude to- wards the people in many different ways. At first, it was a matter erf riding to and from work in a chauffeur- driven limousine. Then be de- cided he muM. dress than when Chairman Mao issued his call for cadres to go down to the countryside to do man- ual labor, he was among the first to volunteer, even walk- ing all the way here. After some time here, Ire changed his world outlook, was praised by his fellow cadres, and elected leader of a bat- talion. "Such was the case with many cadres, who returned to ideological health through their experiences here. The peasants, noticing this, took to saying that a cadre's offi- cious airs begin to fall away as soon as he picks up a hoe. Another saying of the peas- ants is that a cadre's feelings for the masses are as deep as the callouses on his hands; only when he has peasants hands will he have a peas- ant's heart." PHOTOGRAPHS From the briefing room. Ho led his guest along a corri- dor to a small display of pho- tographs arranged around a scale model, in papier mache, of the school and its land. The photographs included fuzzy shots of the rag-tag brigade of pioneers on their march to the school from Canton: studies of the cadres at work, digging ditches, lay- ing roads, and building dor- mitories: and finally, group poses of the cadres arm-in- arm with leathery faced peasants. From the display, the party moved downstairs and across a courtyard to the mess hall. deserted now while the cad- res took their naps or en- gaged in organized sports. Seating themselves around a circular table in the middle of the hall, the members of the Revolutionary Committee sat down to a feast that seem- ed almost bizarre in such austere surroundings: a seemingly endless succession of succulent dishes that would have done credit to a state banquet in Peking's Great Ha21 of the People. Lunch over, a sense of pro- portion was quickly restored with a visit to the pigsty, wheree some of the cleanest- looking pigs outside of a mod- el farm display were being tended to by Fang Yung- tung. a finc-fca'urcd man of 40 who introduced himself by declaring that he had ar- rived at the school in 1963 af- ter spending years "pusning a pencil and 'play- ing with an at Can- tons Number Three Commer- cial Bureau. Climbing in and out of the sties to replenish the pigs' food troughs. Fang gave a running commentary on his experiences at the school. first as an odd-job man in the .school's vegetable garden. and later as one of a handful 1o build up a pip-rearing operation.
