Fletchers Mayfair PICTURE ALBERTA PHONE 732-410 China's ancient sage Confucius scorned in new comic books By JOSEPH LELYVULU New York Times Service HONG KONG China's ancient who has been pictured throughout history as an immovably placid and dignified is now being caricatured in a comic strip as a rapacious villain with a almost canine expression. The comic strip appears on a poster printed for mass distribution as part of the current campaign to condemn the sage and the late Lin chairman Mao Tse-Tung's one-time who now stands accused of having been secretly a Confucian in the years when he was lauded as the chairman's most loyal disciple. Although they were separated by two and one-half Confucius and Lin the poster followed the same revolutionary revisionist It is only Confucius who appears in the comic strip. Lin Piao'5 even in has not been displayed in China since the disclosure that he had died in a plane crash in Mongolia in fleeing the country after an unsuccessful coup. The revolution that Confucius allegedly resisted was a feudal uprising against .he slaveholding aristocracy o' his day. In one the comic strip shows him standing on the side of a while behind him a slaveholder massacres rebellious slaves But this is a short-livtu triumph and a few illustrations Confucius is portrayed as a lonely and discredited figure stalking through a graveyard with a tattered black banner inscribed with one of his about the need to restore vanquished families and officials to their former glory. The next illustration shows him hidden away in his writing on a scroll the Chinese characters for the word traditionally one of the prime Confucian virtues. The caption says that Confucius many reactionary in hopes of restoring slavery. The ink brush is his weapon and inscriptions about and his stock in trade. But wherever he displays the sinister slaveholders are portrayed in the comic strip as lurking in the waiting to suppress the ever revolutionary masses. The historical Confucius travelled disconsolately from state to state in his searching for a ruler with the wisdom to rule according to the ancient virtues. and obscurity are what every man he finally told his if they can only be avoided to the detriment of the way he he must accept The comic-strip Confucius displays no such resignation. Abandoned and he ends his days still filling scrolls with rantings against the revolution. The comic strip then shows his shattered with only two crows in attendance. it goes on to the theories of his discredited reaction were elvated to the status of One illustration shows a variety of cadaverous figures worshipping at the altar of a Confucian temple. Several of the figures are obviously including one with a top hat and pointed beard who might be taken for Uncle Sam Portrayed finally as a Confucius is shown cringing as giant size contemporary soldiers and workers brandish ink brushes at him. A peasant with a shovel stands with to bury him once and for all. The comic strip would be profoundly shocking to Chinese of an older but it may be merely bewildering to young Chinese reared on the thoughts of Chairman Mao Tse-Tung. French vote near Left and right clash over election issues By CLYDE FARNSWORTH New York Times Service PARIS The politics of economics has moved to the centre of the French presidential as left and right clash over how best to assure increased employment and decreased inflation.

Mitterand replies. you it is the law of the the big devouring the you want to lock up everyone in collective is the rejoinder of the finance who leads a Gaullist-allied conservative party. The exchanges between the two men are heavy with the passions of elections that have moved into their final week before the first round of voting on May 5. Mitterand does not reject the collectivist but he insists that even under the common program of the left there would still be an important private economic sector. The right does not believe him. POLICE POUND BEAT UNDER PROGRAM TORONTO Blisters and tired feet are coming back into style in the Metropolitan Toronto police force. About 80 men have been selected to renew the once-familiar tradition of pounding a beat.

PRICES For most Frenchmen what .is important is not so much the economic concept as the status of their jobs and the level of prices. Giscard d'Estaing points to the apparent contradiction between a successful anti- inflation program and measures for social advancement financed by inflation-generating public spending. Mitterrand is at his weakest when he tries to explain how his program will be financed. One of his main ideas is to raise money with a bond billion worth. will buy the bonds when you are nationalizing Giscard d'Estaing asks.
