War preparation eases China emphasizing her agriculture by t. Jeff Williams associated press writer Hong Kong apr China muting its demands that its people prepare for War is exhorting them now toward rapid expansion of agricultural production. Such orchestration of National priorities reinforces a. Belief that peking s once ominous talk of War was basically to mobilize the people for a new economic leap Forward. The logic of this argument is that China a masses weary and disillusioned after the chaos of the cultural revolution could Best be United again by the threat of attack. Once the nationalistic adrenalin was again running Strong the people s momentum could be turned into More productive pursuits. Fervent nationalism erupted following the series of Border a dashes with soviet troops last year. Mao tse Tung s Call to a be prepared against War be prepared against National disaster and do everything for the people Quot rang through the country. Public fears were kept at High pitch until Early this year by constant warnings that Moscow and Washington were plotting assaults on China. Actual preparations for War were widely undertaken by thousands throughout China. These included carving the insides from entire Hills around Canton for bomb shelters. A chinese from Hong Kong who recently visited Canton said one shelter was equipped with Beds kitchens and first Aid rooms. Such mass energies have steadily been redirected away from War preparations toward building a stable agriculture base. The shift came As the peasants began to prepare for the Spring planting late last month. It was a a revolutionary Spring with thousands of Quot Mao tse Tung thought propaganda teams urging greater production while playing Down War fears. To mobilize the people mass campaigns to conserve water and expand farm land have been launched. In addition to economic gains the campaigns Are instrumental in developing automatic responses from the Public and changeling their thoughts in one direction. Soldiers by the battalions have been ordered out of Garrison. To prepare Fields for their own source of food and to help the Farmers. Following Mao a order to a support the government and cherish to people a a thousands of troops seem involved More in agriculture work than in preparing for War. The overriding goal in China today As determined from broadcasts monitored in Hong Kong and from chinese publications is to carry out a a new leap a spattering of War talks still comes from peking but other factors raise questions about China s real belief in War economic experts remain unconvinced that China a High imports of steel Copper and rubber Are for War prepare Lions they note these items can be slowed into Industrial expansion and farm machinery. Similarly sharply reduced exports of Tungsten and Antimony could equally indicate China was gearing up for Industrial expansion. China is now agreeing to Long delivery times on its imports this suggests there is a on aiders we Advance .
