Over the the Chinese Communist chairman has been pictured by persons out- side China as dying or in doubtful control of his mental faculties. But those who have met him in Peking recently describe him as in ap- parent sound health except for a touch of rheumatism in his and obviously still China's No. 1 man. In the last 12 months he has received a succession of foreign leaders in his booklined study in among them Prime Minister France's President Georges West German Foreign Minister Walter and Henry Kissinger first as President Nixon's special ad- then as new United States secretary of state. Founder of the People's Re- public in Mao has sur- vived the bitter opposition of former associates and old cronies who violently dis- agreed with what they believ- ed were his over-bold and im- practicable concepts for the economic and moral development of China's 800 million people. In the 10th national party congress confirmed the death and disgrace of the latest of those friends-turned- Defence Minister Lin Piao. Lin is said to have been kill- ed in a plane crash in 1971 in Mongolia while trying to es- cape to Russia following dis- covery of a plot by him to seize power from Mao. He thus joined a list of anti- Mao villains that includes the former Manchurian Kao Lin's predecessor as defence Peng and China's former president Liu Shao-chi. NEW YOUNG LEADER One of the surprises of the August congress was the emergence of China's first genuinely youthful leader in many years. He is Wang a former factory still in his 30s. He ranks after Mao and Premier Chou En-lai. The man nearest his age on the standing committee of the Politburo is Shanghai's revolu- tionary committee Chang in his 50s. Regarded as leader of the left and a protege of Mao's Chiang Wang found himself outranking his patroness. Despite the magic of her Madame Mao failed to win membership in the nine-member standing committee.

Queen says family events help people December LETHBRIDQE HERALD-3 They gave LONDON In her traditional Christmas Day message to the Com- the 21st since she came to the the Queen said she is glad her daughter's wedding gave pleasure to so many people at a time when the world was facing serious She also refered to the Com- monwealth prime ministers' meeting which she attended in Ottawa last calling it different sort of family She said it remind- ed her of the importance of human relationships in world and the Com- monwealth's on relationships among its leaders. Scenes of the Canadian Commonwealth were included in the 12-minute prerecorded television along with film se- quences shot by the British Broadcasting Corp. at Buckingham Palace on Princess Anne's wedding day Nov. 14. These latter scenes were not shown before. The is now 21 years since I first broadcast a Christmas message to the Com- monwealth. our two elder children were only four and two. our daughter joins us for Christmas with her husband and we are celebrating the festival with the memories of their wedding very much in our minds. WORRYING constantly being told that we live in a changing world and that we need to adapt to changing conditions. But this is only part of the truth and I am sure that all parents seeing their children getting married are reminded of the continuity of human life. That is I that at weddings all friends and and even complete can stop worrying for a moment and share in the happiness of the couple who are getting married. am glad that my daugh- ter's wedding gave such pleas- ure to so many people just at a time when the world was fac- ing very serious problems. all over the world watched the wedding on tele- but there were still many in London on the and their warmth and en- thusiasm ensured it was an oc- casion my family will never forget. this I went to Canada for a different sort of occasion.' This was the meeting of Com- monwealth heads of govern- ment and here I was reminded of the importance of human relationships in world and how membership of the Commonwealth has a subtle influence on the relationships between its leaders.

I am sure in so they find the real happiness that comes from serving and thinking of others. believe that Christmas should remind us that the qualities of the human spirit are more important than material gain. Christ taught love and charity and that we should show humanity and compassion at all times and in all situations. lack of humanity and compassion can be very de- easily this causes divisions within nations and between nations. We should remember instead how much we have in common and resolve to give expression to the best of our human not only at Christ- but right through the year. this Christmas spirit let us greet all our fellow men and join together in this festival of tolerance and com- panionship. wish you all a very happy Christmas.''
