Phont 642-3145 among them during the Japa- nese offensive may serve as a common rapport between Prime Minister Trudeau and his Chinese hosts when he vis- its China next week All Chinese know Dr. Beth- une as a Canadian Samaritan. They have to know about him. Chairman Mao Tse-tung de- creed during the Great Prole- tarian Cultural Revolution of 1966-69 that they must learn trom Dr Bethuhe's "selfless spirit of serving people." Communist Chinese histo- rians claim that Dr. Bethune, who arrived in China in late 1937, was sent by the Commu- nist parly of Canada to work with the Communist-led Eighth Route Chinese army They say he was a "true Com- munist an inter- nationalist VICTIM OF DISEASE Dr Bethune died Nov. 26. 1939. from septicemia, a form of blood poisoning, after treat- ing many wounded soldiers. He had frequently operated on wounded soldiers in aban- doned temples just behind frontlines The Chinese buried him at Shihchiachuan. about 100 miles south of Peking During November, 1966. on the 27th anniversary ol the doctor's death, Mao wrote a special article. In Memory ot Dr Bethune The article, along with two others by Mao, are essential reading for all Chinese They must study them over and over again The three are known to the Chine.se as. "The three well- read articles Three years ago when Can- ada and China established diplomatic relations, the Chi- nese Communist party news- paper People's Daily singled out Dr. Bethune as "a good son of Canada" in an editorial welcoming the occasion Since then, several Chinese missions have come to Can- ada for goodwill tours which never are complete without a visit to the doctor's birthplace in Northern Ontario. External Affairs Minister Sharp was the first federal minister to mention Bethune to the Chinese publicly. He spoke highly ol the doctor dur- ing a lour of the trade ex- hibition in South China's Can- ton in August 1972. The Chi- nese were pleased When Trudeau arrives in Peking. Dr Bethunc's name will undoubtedly be raised again. If not Trudeau, his host. Premier Chou Kn-lai, certainly will mention the Ca- nadian doctor in his official speech ol welcome This will underline the people-to-people goodwill between the Chinese and Canadians As in the case of other vis- iting dignitaries, Chou prob- ably will hold a banquet wel- coming his Canadian guests on the night of Trudeau's ar- rival. But hours before the ban- quet in the Great Hall of the People on the western edge of the huge- Tienanmen (Heav- enlv Peace I Square, observ- 01 s mav detect just how friendly to Trudeau the Chi- ne.se are prepared to be good barometer will be the size ol the crowd at Pe- king's airport, welcoming the prime minister and his en- tourage. The numbers are carefully worked out. LESS THAN Past cases show that lead- ers ol Western countries, with the exception ol President Nixon got crowds of less than 10.000 There was no mass tur- nout lor the 11 S president. Nixon got a handful of offi- cials led by Chou But the Chinese showed him all the courtesty due to a head of state despite the fact that theie are no formal diplo- matic relations between the two countries. Again, if past cases may be taken us a reliable guide, Chairman Mao may welcome Trudeau in his private library where he has received many foreign dignitaries, including Nixon. The Chinese are likely to set this meeting for the se- cond day of the visit This would signify that the 79-vear-old chairman person- ally approves of the prime minister's visit and that offi- cial talks may begin between Trudeau and Chou Though there are many is- sues which the two men may discuss, there are no serious outstanding differences be- tween the two countries. Un- doubtedly Chou will try to en- list support lor the China view that the Soviet Union is bent on an aggressive course But in the event that a joint communique is issued, Cana- dians may be sure that the Chinese would like to have Dr Bethunc's name mentioned in it.
