CHINESE DISPUTES:
Red Ideological Clash Creates
Internal Political Upheavals

RATINGS DECREASE:
Johnson's Popularity Losses

By The Associated Press
Influential elements in

Red

dents-for asking, for example, [the Socialist cultural revolution'

China's armed forces appear to
have clashed with the ruling Po-
litburo, producing a deep internal
crisis which has persisted for six
months. Dissident forces seem to
be losing out, but the struggle
may be far from ended.
The crisis evidently has been
one of the first magnitude upon
which, the party press indicates,
has hung the future of both par-
ty and state.
Among the dissidents apparent-
ly were armed forces figures who
considered the Chinese military
backward in a perilous time, and
who regretted the loss of Soviet
technological help in 1960. Such
elements may have wanted to find
a road to ideological and state-
level peace with the Moscow lead-
ership.
A clue to all this turned up this
week in a Chinese account of an
air force political organization's
conference .
The armed forces paper, Libera-
tion Army Daily, said the meeting
was told: "The first problem we
military men must solve is wheth-
er we want to carry out the revo-
lution or whether we should let
revisionism prevail in our coun-
try."
"Revisionism" is the Chinese
party term for Soviet ideology.
The meeting criticized "some
people"-a favorite label for dissi-

what good an air force was if its
planes could not fly. Those who
complained said the weak link in
the armed forces was technology.
This was considered wrong
thinking. The paper found tech-
nology less important than build-
ing a "proletarian-minded" armed
force. It indicated the dissidents
were losing the struggle.
"The military of the armed forc-
es," it said, "has undergone a
great change since comrade Lin
Piao's instructions about giving
prominence to politics were car-
ried out. However, some people
are not yet fully aware of the
seriousness of the class struggle."
Defense Minister Lin Piao, a
powerful, doctrinaire member of
the Politburo with an anti-Soviet
outlook, evidently shunned the
theory that Soviet technology was
important to the Chinese armed
forces.
In those "instructions" he said:
"What is the best weapon? Not
artillery, nor airplanes, nor tanks,
nor atom bombs. The best weapon
is Mao Tze-tung's thinking."
The "instructions" were issued
Nov. 1T. The date is important.
Before then, the press now says,
certain plotters used prominent
writers to spread poisonous weeds"
and an anti-party line.
Said the Peking People's Daily:
"A sudden change of situation on

front took place in November 1965.
A new repulsing battle broke out,
and Wu Han, the collaborator of
Teng To, was brought to light."

By BETSY COHN
Aside from the saving grace of
Audrey Hepburn and the rugged
poker face of Humphrey Bogart,
the pace of "Sabrina" (1954) is
run around a used track of well-

Wu Han is Peking's deputy may- i worn plot and tired dialogue.

or and a member of its party sec-
retariat. Teng To is a party sec-
retary and former editor. Both
now can be linked with a purge
drive in the armed forces.
The November date pegs the
crisis. It was then that Mao drop-
ped from public view, to remain
out of it for six months, possibly
ill. It was then that Lin Piao--
whom some regard as a coming
strong man-issued the "instruc-
tions." Their main theme, now
quoted interminably, was that pol-
itics must always be in absolute
command of the armed forces.
Targets of the campaign are
men who "defend Khrushchev re-
visionism and the Soviet line,"
who have embraced "the most di-
abolical thought among human be-
ings."
Through the murky jargon of
Chinese Communist language, one
can detect evidence that the old-
line leaders who came up with
Mao still have the upper hand. But
the indications are that the purge
has reached deep into the leader-
ship of the party and of the arm-
ed forces, and that before it is
over some people in high places
will be brought down.

Sabrina is the Long Island Cin-
derella, the daughter of a chauf-
feur and the love of the two rich
Larrabbee brothers. Her youth is
largely spent perched in tree limbs
casting tearful glances at David
Larrabbee (William Holden), the
sleek young Wall Street flower
whom she has loved since the age
of nine. Holden goes through a fa-
miliar routine of the affluent lov-
er who has been married three
times, the man in demand by the
Long Island ladies and the callous
lover who takes women's hearts
and makes them into cardiac dis-
tortions.
Nevertheless, her arboreal pur-
suits are in vain and she is ship-
ped off to cooking school in Paris
with hopes that she will get her
feet back on the ground.
After working with souffles and
boiled gongala leaves for two
years, Sabrina returns "a changed
woman." She is "sophisticated, in-
dependent" and ready to leap at
life with her now "level-headed"
approach...so she thinks.
Her first lunge is at lustful
David who is naturally agape at
the new woman. After a cute

duet of "Who are you . . . I've seen
you somewhere before," he real-
izes she is the chauffeur's daugh-
ter. The knot begins to tangle
here.
Holden is already engaged to
some vapid young figure whose
daddy deals with sugar. Holden's
family is violently upset by his
new plebian interlude and the plot
pleads for a solid intervention.
Enter Bogart: older brother,
stronghold of the family business
and direct antagonist to Holden
and Hepburn. Naturally, his pres-
ence assumes that things will
eventually straighten- themselves
with his efficient, cool, matter-of-
fact tactics. It is tender, morose,
but inevitable that the ending
should work out as it does: the
cynical elderly man and the sweet,
sensitive young girl are happily
clutching at each other, while sail-
ing away to the Happy Parisian
Wonderland.
Like the Cinderella syndrome,
there is a magical element in
the movie which saves it from an
unhappy pumpkin fate.. .. Bippe-
ty, boppetty Boo! The magic
charm of Hepburn and Bogart,
too!
Although Bogart looks a little
haggard, talks in somewhat of a
garbled drone and impresses one
as having a slight lack of spon-
taneity, this is the Bogart magic.
It is a successful potion which
makes the viewer forget the story
and concentrate on the finer spe-
cifics.
Hepburn, the charming half of
the magic, adds something aes-
thetic to the movie with her nat-
ural fawnlike movements and a
sensitivity in her presence. This
carries over to her acting in a
sympathetic commune with her
audience.
Overlook the plot, overlook the
structure of stereotypes on which
it is built. Be attentive to the al-
luring aloofness of Bogart, the
delicate appeal of Hepburn, and
enjoy "Sabrina."

Due To Li
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Johnson is keenly aware that the
high cost of living and the Viet
Nam war are cutting into his
administration's popularity as
measured by public opinion polls.
In reaction to the polls and oth-
er signs, the administration has
made several moves to try to
show that the rise in living costs
has been much lower than in oth-
er industrialized nations and that
there are grounds for hope that
civil strife in South Viet Nam
can be composed and a degree of
unity attained.
After his latest survey this week,
pollster Louis Harris said that the
American public's rating of the
way Johnson does his job has fall-
en to the lowest point of his 22
years in the White House.
Only 55 per cent now think he
is doing an excellent or good job,
Harris reported. This is a decline
of seven percentage points from
two months ago and 12 points
from January.
But Johnson's rating in this poll
is still above the low points of
the Eisenhower and Kennedy ad-
ministrations.
A Gallup Poll released Wednes-
day night reported that a test
for the presidency between John-
son and Republican Richard M.
Nixon would be closer now than
eight months ago.
The poll said 54 per cent of
those queried replied they would
like to see Johnson win if the
election was held today, while 36
per cent picked Nixon and 10 per
cent were undecided. Last Septem-
ber, a similar poll listed Johnson
with 61 per cent, Nixon with 35
per cent and had 4 per cent un-
decided. No other candidates were
listed in these polls.
Another recent Gallup Poll pos-
ed the question:tShould the Unit-
ed States withdraw its troops if
the South Vietnamese begin fight-
ing among themselves in a big
way? The polling organization said
54 per cent of Americans would

favor withdrawal in that event,'
and only 28 per cent favored con-
tinuing to help South Viet Nam.
At a news conference last Sat-
urday, the President was asked:
"How do you regard some of the
very recent polls that show consid-
erable public dissatisfaction over
both Viet Nam and the economic
situation as to inflation?"
He replied that he believes there
is somewhat more concern about
higher prices now "than you would
have in a normal period because
we are coming close to reaching
our objective of full employment."
But he produced a chart to show
that United States price increases
have averaged less than 1%z per
cent a year since 1960, whereas
in Germany the growth rate is 3
per cent, in the United Kingdom
and France 31/2 to 4 per cent and
in Japan 61/2 per cent.
As for dissatisfaction with the
situation in Viet Nam, he said that
he himself is "leading the parade"
of those who want to get out.
But outside of his news confer-
ence remarks, Johnson-who on
occasion has plucked polls from
his pockets to demonstrate support
of his leadership-has let his aides
and supporters keep busy trying to

iving Costs And War

bolster public confidence in light
of the sagging polls.
On Monday, with the President
sitting nearby, House Speaker
John W. McCormack (D-Mass),
told a White House gathering that
"this country has never left the
field of battle in abject surrender
and we shall not do so now."
The same day Secretary of State
Dean Rusk told Senate and House
leaders he was hopeful the civil
strife between Buddhists and the
Saigon government "will be re-
solved before long."
Both of these moves were seen
as administration attempts to
strengthen confidence in Johnson's
conduct of the Viet Nam war.
