Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February H, 1t74 LBTHBRIDOE HERALD -19 Loader recovered A crane lifts a front-end loader from Six Mile Lake, near Hazelton in. northwestern British Columbia. The loader crashed through the ice while clearing snow for a winter carnival. Operator ten Thomas got back his lunch bucket which went down with the loader two weeks ago. Peking schoolgirl in front lines of war9 By JOHN BURNS Special to The Herald .PEKING A 12-year-old Peking schoolgirl who established her precocity with a nationally publicized attack on her teacher, has struck time with a vehement denunciation of a party cadre who dared suggest that she was an adolescent upstart. The schoolgirl, Huang Shuai, was given as the author of an open letter to the cadre which was bannered across the front page of Monday's People's Daily. The letter put the fellow firmly in his place, insinuating that he is in league with unnamed forces that supposedly are working for the restoration of the bourgeoisie. For Huang, as prolific as she is precocious, it was the second headline in a matter of days. Only last week she was credited with the authorship of an attack on Michelangelo Parallel attacks The militant language used in the Antonioni articles and in a parallel series attacking the late Marshal Lin Piao and his alleged mentor, the ancient sage Confucius, lends plausibility to the theory that nothing less than a renewal of the cultural revolution is in prospect. The .texts themselves reinforce this interpretation -with their in- sistence on the need to carry the upheaval of the 1966-69 pe- riod through to "a new and higher Although the campaign against revisionist tendencies is six months old it is only in the past two weeks that the propaganda media have devoted almost all their resources to it. With the party publications finding room for hardly anything else, an impression of momentum has been created that will be difficult to sustain unless there are even more dramatic demarches in the weeks ahead. Antonkmi's China, a feature length documentary film that is accused of slandering the revolution. The Antonioni article, pub- lished in Kwangming Daily, a paper specializing in educa- tional and cultural matters, was one of an avalanche that have appeared since the Italian filmmaker was marked out as a major villain in the current "people's war" against forces that are allegedly seeking to un- dermine the revolution. The extraordinary ferocity of the attacks on Antonioni, who is described as a "spy" and an "anti-China has persuaded many analysts that the real target is not- so much the film has in any event been shown to only a selected handful of people in elements on the domestic scene who are associated with attempts to subvert the cause of' Socialism. Already political passions have been excited to a degree that is reminiscent of the heady days hi 1966 when the red guards were preparing for their onslaught on the political establishment.- Posters attacking Lin, Confucius and Antonioni are appearing in cities all over the country and mass rallies are a frequent feature of life for the workers, peasants and soldiers who are regarded as the bedrock of the Chinese proletariat. Foreigners, excluded from the rallies and discouraged from scrutinizing or photographing the posters, can only dimly discern the direction and purposes of the campaign. Bat they can watch the shadows flickering on the wall, as it were, by tuning. to nightly telecasts by the Peking station showing excerpts from the rallies and other activities associated with the campaign. TV studio debates The telecasts tend to concentrate on scenes of speakers working themselves up into a fine state of indignation while reading prepared texts to intense looking but mostly silent audiences. In an intriguing and novel adaptation of Western television techniques there have even been studio debates featuring half a dozen or more representatives of key constituent groups soldiers, teachers, foundry workers and so on. Yankee affluence posts another break-through NEW YORKTrWten-Afftaence spawned the baby sitter, more money led to the dog sitter, and the energy crisis has now led to an American first the car sitter. For sfcoul an hour the New York city motorist, who has been forced to wait in long lines for gasoline, can hire a car sitter to maintain his place in line until be finally works his way to the pump. Monday, Mrs. Irene Coyman, a housewife and mother, began her first assignment as a car sitter. Mrs. Coyman explained that most people just don't have the time to wait in line and that, besides, sbe will have thro to catch op on her reading as well as earn some extra money. Her husband, Dennis, a musician, doesn't plan to hire his wife saying: "At an hour, she's too expensive for me."
