China toenarge
purge of party'
TOKYO (R5) - Red China marked its 19th anniversary yesterday
with an announcement that'Mao Tse-tung's 26-month-old purge is to
be widened and deepend to "purify" the 17 million members of the
Chinese Communist party.
Mao's top aide and heir-apparent, Defense Minister Lin Piao, told
a half million cheering Chinese in Peking's Tien An Men-Gate of
Heavenly Peace-Square at the height of nationwide celebrations: "We
definitely will liberate Taiwan, Formosa, and are ready at all times to

the teachers' three-week strike.
The board of the Ocean Hill-
Brownsville experimental school
district, which set off the first
strike, ignored key elements in the
peace pact yesterday and a brief
clash between parents, pupils, tea-
chers and police erupted at police
barricades outside one school.
Another school in the district Was
closed because of trouble.'
"The possibility of another
strike should not be ignored," Al-
bert -Shanker, president of the
AFL-CIO United Federation of
Teachers said at a news confer-
ence. "It is very real. We don't
want it. But our patience is run-
ning out."

was more on the internal politics
of the proletarian cultural revolu-

for the work of consolidating and
building the party by conscien-'

The objective is to shake up the
party's now predominantly intel-

The editorial also advocated
making room in the "party's bas-

committees at all levels" for Com-

by Mao's line. This presumably
would include activists such as

piciously like the position of Pre-
sident Johnson's administration inr
spite of its new formulation."
The Soviet news agency Tabs
echoed this skepticism, saying "no
new approach' could be detected
in Humphrey's announcement.
It said Humphrey's speech was
"clearly calculated to win over to
his side the numerous voters reso-
lutely denouncing the dirty war
OCTOBER 1-13 in Vietnam and demanding that it
be ended."
Some foreign diplomats feel,
however, that Hanoi might sur-
prise its Moscow supporters, as it
did when it accepted President
Johnson's offer of preliminary
peace talks in Paris.
They reason that Hanoi could
calculate Humphrey will prove
easier to deal with 4han any of
his rivals. Following this logic, the
North Vietnamese might decide to
make a response to his speech,
thus hoping to ease his way into
the White House.

In the meantime, while the
Senate returns to legislative busi-
