Long Beach Independent Press Telegram (Newspaper) - February 22, 1959, Long Beach, CaliforniaLove Russia hate America code of China this is the last of a series of articles by a noted Indian social scientist summarizing his impressions of red China based on a six week tour behind the Bamboo curtain by or. Sripati Chandrasekhar co a rim 1w, Fey Ftp Man intriguing if disconcerting aspect of the contemporary chinese scene is the tremendous nationwide political propaganda concerning who red China s friends and enemies Are. The whole nation has been taught that there is one great socialist Friend of China the a a selfless soviet Union and one irreconcilable a imperialist enemy Quot a the United states. The first is understandable for Russia is the Leader of the communist Camp. It is also True that this Friendly soviet Union whether selfless or not. Is responsible for 90 per cent of the heavy machinery an overwhelming majority of All technical experts and almost All the blueprints of China s Industrial Progress. In fact the russians Are almost exclusively response ble for such industrialization As has taken place in China in recent years. It is no wonder that russians receive special preferential treatment All Over China. The c his Ese Are now building special hotels for russians so that they can Hae their own life without meeting or mingling with other foreigners from within or without the communist world. At every hotel in which i stayed during my six weeks in red China from Canton to Harbin in Manchuria i found that my fellow guests belonged to some soviet delegation or a a the Only foreign language recognized in China is russian from menus to theater notices from directions at stations and airports to travel information i found Only two languages chinese and russian. Today russian is taught at most universities in place of English French and German. The English language was fairly widespread As a Means of instruction before the communists took Over. I have heard chinese speaking russian but i discovered that English speaking chinese preferred speaking in chinese rather than English. I have seen students using russian textbooks in medical colleges and technical universities. All libraries that i visited were filled with russian books mostly technical. In every factory i visited i was told the same Story of the a selfless help of the soviet Union in giving technical Aid and machinery. Whether it is the heavy machine tool factory in Harbin or the Iron and steel Complex at Wuhan or the great new Bridge on the Yangtze River linking the North and South of China with the triple cities at Wuhan a All have been accomplished with soviet assistance. The russians draw up the plans bring the machinery and raise the Plant with of course the help of chinese engineers and workers. But the russian engineers stay behind the scenes.
