Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 40-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Wtdrmday, March China's graveyard rallies aimed at foreigners By JOSEPH LELYVELD New York Times Service HONG KONG Rallies have been held at graveyards in China ,as part of what appears to be an organized effort to remind the Chinese people of atrocities committed by foreigners when weak and pliable governments opened the country to them. In chilling language more reminiscent of the Boxer Rebellion than anything that has been heard since chairman Mao Tse-Tung led the Communist Party to power, a recent broadcast described a rally staged in the town of Paoshan in the southwestern province of Yunnan that was told how unnamed "imperialists" murdered innocent Chinese children" there by "extracting their blood, gouging their eyes, cutting out their intestines, and boiling them in oil." The day before a broadcast from the coastal province of Fukien told of a rally at the site of another alleged mass grave for Chinese children slaughtered by "imperialists" at a place called Mawei near the port of Fuchow. The broadcast recalled how in the 19th century the "decadent government" of the Ching dynasty granted privileges to foreigners who then "ran amok and killed Chinese children." Paoshan is in remote hills less than 100 miles from the Burmese border, about miles west of Mawei, which is near the Taiwan straits. Diplomats here, who were startled by the violence and xenephobic overtones of the two broadcasts, regarded the occurrence pf the rallies at two such obscure places, so far from each other, as proof of a centrally organized campaign. Other rallies have been reported recently that attempted to revive bitter memories of the sufferings of the Chinese people during the Second World War, not only at the hands of the invading Japanese forces but also those of an American intelligence unit that is charged with having helped the secret police of Chiang Kar-Shek's nationalist government to torture and kill supporters of the Communists. A broadcast the other day from northern Shansi province told of a rally at a place in Lingchiu county where "243 class brothers were slaughtered" in 1943 by "Japanese bandits and traitors" who were described as "wild animals." At the Huangshih coal mine in Hupeh province in central China a rally held near a gun emplacement "left behind by the Japanese aggressors" was reminded of the Japanese's "gross atrocities, including arson and random killing." In the southern province of Kweichow there was a rally of soldiers and militiamen in Hsiefeng county at the site of a concentration camp said to have been maintained by the Nationalists with the support of an organization called the Chinese-American Technical Co-operation Organization, the American unit that supported the secret police. The camp was described as a "living coffin." in which untold numbers of revolutionaries were martyred. Each of the broadcasts relates the denunciation of atrocities by foreigners to the movement against Confucius and Lin Piao, chairman Mao's onetime heir apparent who is now charged with having been a "super spy" for the Soviet Union. comfortable Sportive luxe: A lot of style, a lot of ease.

Fine spring weather has brought out hundreds of people along with some pets for walks in the park. t Pets enrich human life By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service NEW YORK In treating certain forms of schizophrenia, it has been found that dogs can be used successfully where human therapists have failed. It has also been discovered that-a dog can establish an effective parent-child relationship with a young monkey who had previously formed such an attachment to its own mother. The finding runs contrary to the wide belief that such relationships can develop only once and at the earliest stage of life. These discoveries regarding the attachments that can form between individuals from radically different species, including human beings, are described in the current issue of the Journal Science and in a report from Ohio State University. Current studies of the role of parental deprivation in causing depression were also presented at the start of a three-day conference on of the animal psychopathological model to the human." AGE-OLD ROLE The findings would appear to cast light on the age-old role of pets in enriching human life. The studies have extended to the effect of pet birds on the mental health of pensioners living alone. The conference, organized by the Kittay Scientific Foundation, is being held at the Harmonic Club here. One participant. Dr. Mary Salter Ainsworth of Johns Hopkins University, reported that in human beings even short- duration isolation from the mother may affect a child. Thus, she said, in a Johns Hopkins study it was found that after five months in day- care centres. 20 children, aged 2 to 3. exhibited more signs of anxiety and a greater fear of strangers than a similar group reared at home. Whether the effect was enduring, however, was not clear. The use of dogs in treating mental illness was carried out at Ohio State by Or. Samuel A. Corson. Twenty so-called "feeling heart" dogs, chosen for their warmth and friendliness, are used to treat patients who did not respond to conventional therapy. DOGS OFFER LOVE As a typical case, the report described that of Marsha, brought to the university hospital- screaming and disoriented, who was diagnosed as a catatonic schizophrenic. She did not respond to drugs or 25 sessions of electric shock and instead became "withdrawn, frozen and almost mute." She was assigned one of the dogs and soon began to show signs of recovery, leading ultimately to discharge from the hospital. With the dogs. Corson reported, the patients become "different people." The dogs, he added, "offered the kind of love a psychiatrically sick person needs." Of 20 patients in the Ohio study. 18 accepted the dogs and all showed improvement, in some cases leading to discharge.
