Ukc their predecessors, the new mandarins give worshipful obesiance to a new, if proletarian, Son of Heaven. When his legions completed the rout of Chiang Kai-shek from Ihe mainland 22 years ago, Mao Tse-tung had no visible pretensions lo a godlike image. He was Mao, the modest revolutionary son of a peasant, when he gazed serenely from the Gate of Heavenly Peace in Peking upon the teeming humanity below him. intoned Mao, "Hie Chinese people stood up." The moment was a prelude to disaster for the United States; involvement in two costly Asian wars and all that would mean in terms of internal U.S. problems. An intervention by Chinese "people's volunteers" in the Korean conflict convinced in 1950 that China and the Soviet Union represented a monolithic threat to conquer first Asia and then the world. One old China hand and ex-diplomat who fell during the McCarthy era in the United Sta'.cs thinks the irony of today's unfolding drama must tickle Premier Chou En-lai's sense of humor. Chou has been stressing that the initiative for President Nixon's visit came from Washington. "To the Chinese this must be a delicious experience the most powerful country in the world seeking something from says John Paton Da-vies. "And Nixon, the great anti-Communist crusader, making the overtures." Like the Cliina of old, "new" Cluna under 78-year-old Mao is ruled by a coterie of aged leaders. Like ancient rulers, most of them sprang from the ranks of upper-class intellectuals. The new rulers could just as well call themselves mandarins, for they have little claim to proletarian well, at the high point of the Cultural involution, (he cult of Maoism had grown to incredible proportions. In alone, official announcements said, more than 040 million copies of portraits of Chairman Mao were printed more than one for each man, woman and ehild. It look years and cost much blood before Mao reached his pinnacle. HLS had been a shaky rule at the oulset, badly in need of help. In quest of such help, he left China for the lirst time on a pilgrimage of the Kremlin. The Soviet press hailed his meeting with Slalin ns an epoch-making event. But Mao got relatively little for his pains. A 1950 friendship pact lent China the equivalent of million. Evidently there still was little warmth between Mao and Stalin. There would be even less between Mao and Stalin's successors, beginning with the boisterous Nikita Khrushchev. Mao's vision of a permanently revolutionary on (he peasantry was i heresy in Moscow, made more intolerable for Ihe Kremlin in by Mao's decree of a Great Forward. The ideas: to produce ecor.omic miracles Ihrongh agricultural p o o p 1 e 's communes and backyard steel smelters. While Khrushchev jeered, the Leap brought economic disaster. In 195J, in an atmosphere of tension, Mao had lo step aside as head of government, retaining only the party's chairmanship. The government post went to Liu Snao-chi. Mao bided his lime through several years of natural calamity, setbacks and gradual economic recovery. Meanwhile, (lie quarrel with Moscow became a blazing feud that reduced their trade drastically and had (lie two hurling epithets at one another. It would lead to military clashes along a long border where China claimed to have been the victim of unfair czarisf treaties. The Cultural Revolution was another rcnr'at of Chinese history. Under its banner, millions of reckless teen-age Red Guards went on a rampage, visiting inunense cruelties on the elders in an echo of past movements like (lie Tai Ping, the Boxer and the May 4th. Turmoil of unbe-ievnble proportions convulsed Ihe land. By with Mao's purge apparently complete, the parly and the government structures bore lillle resemblance lo those of 1066. President Liu now was in disgrace. The party adopted a new constitution naming Defence Minister Lin Piao as Mao's heir. The to have a hig share of control, occupying many top places on ruling bodies. But Lin Piao himself also was destined for oblivion. The Cultural Revolution had hurl. Now that its noise and confusion had faded, perhaps (be time had come to show the world a different face. That seemed the thinking behind Chou'a "ping pong diplomacy." HURKENS CONSTRUCTION GUARANTEED WORK CITY AND COUNTRY Free Estimates Phone 32B-656B CAMPAIGN Rep.
