TOKYO (AP)-Chinese journalists.
who toured the United States found
Americans to be friendly, strangely
dressed, hard-working and scien-
tifically skilled, but questioned who so
many turn to drugs or religion.
Other things that made an im-
pression: joggers, dirt in New York
City, tipping, orderly traffic and "an-
noying" television commercials.

"WE SHOULD STUDY their science
but refuse their philosophy," Wang Jo-
shui concluded in a series of articles in
the Communist Party newspaper
People's Daily. The articles were based
on a three-week tour of America by
Wang and fellow journalist Feng Hsi-
liang.
Wang also said that while the
bourgeois lifestyle is "eat, drink and be
merry" and Americans call themselves
a consumer society, there is no con-
sumption without production.
"Without the diligent labor of a great
many workers and scientists, you can't
imagine America's production rising to
today's levels or how America could
send a man to the moon," he wrote.
In the offices and factories he visited,
Wang said, "there was not one idle per-
son, or any idle chatting." For
Americans, he wrote, "play is play and
work is work. They are divided very
clearly."
UMN"

Everywhere they went, he said, t1
encountered good will and frien
smiles-"People were very willing
approach us and talk."
"In the view of many American
Wang said, "China is -a mysteric
country. On the other hand, in the vi
of many Chinese, America is a stran
country."
BESIDES THE CONTRAST
culture and social systens, he wro
there are such superficial differenc
as clothing-American clothing ti
Chinese find strange and Chine
clothing that Americans find t
boring.
He also said"he was told that t
youth situation "is very complicat
Some young people have many c
tradictions in their minds, and if th
d6n't take drugs they drink.
"They lack ideals, they feel life h
no significance, they are dissatisfif
but they basically don't know what th
need. Some youths think they can fii
the answers in religion.
"FEW OF US Chinese believe
religion and thus we easily overlook t
function religion has in other counries
He added, "In America, with su
advanced science and technology, ti
great influence maintained by religio
can only be explained in terms of ti
needs of the ruling class and the peop
still being 'unable to grasp their ov
fate."I
Some American youths, however a:
content to find a good job and live
comfortable material life, r
bothering with politics or religion,
wrote.
Wang's other observations:
" Despite the great number of cars
american streets, traffic is fairly
derly and horn-honking is frowned up
and infrequent. The sound of honki
horns is constant in Chinese cities.
- Tipping is required even in so
restrooms but service in America
thorough, as long as you can afford it
" American streets "are all ve
clean, with the exception of New Yor
where city services are hampered
the financial crisis.
" Americans are reluctant to live
city centers because of polluti
congestion, and crime.
. Americans love sports, and
roads were full of men and womi
young and old joggers every day u
late."
Feng wrote that on U.S. televisi
"no matter what the program is y
can't watch more than a few minul
without a commercial interr
ting-very annoying."
