  • Description

    HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE CHANTING THE PRAISES OF CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG CRAMMED INTO PEKING'S "HEAVENLY PEACE" SQUARE TODAY (TUESDAY) TO CELEBRATE THE 19TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. THE CHINESE PEOPLE OF THE PORTUGUESE COLONY OF MACAO, NEAR HONG KONG, HELD SIMILAR CELEBRATIONS WERE ALSO HELD TODAY.

    A DISTINCTIVE FEATURE OF THIS YEAR'S NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATIONS WAS THE LACK OF FOREIGN DELEGATIONS ATTENDING. IN PREVIOUS YEARS, PREMIERS AND PRESIDENTS FLOCKED TO PEKING TO STAND ON THE ROSTUM WITH CHINESE LEADERS IN "HEAVENLY PEACE" SQUARE. THIS YEAR, ONLY ALBANIA AND PAKISTAN SENT DELEGATIONS. THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, THERE WERE BANNERS AND LIGHTS AND BANQUETS AND RALLIES TO SHOW A UNTIED NATIONAL FRONT TO THE WORLD.

    A JOINT EDITORIAL IN THE OFFICIAL PEOPLE'S DAILY, THE JOURNAL RED FLAG, AND THE LIBERATION ARMY DAILY, SAID TODAY THAT THE COUNTRY HAD EMERGED SUCCESSFULLY WITH THE CULTURAL REVOLUTION AND WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF REVOLUTIONARY COMMITTEES IN ALL 29 PROVINCES WAS ENTERING A NEW PERIOD.
