"Before the Cultural Revolu-

girl who is one of the school's
prestigious Y o u n g Communist
leaders, "too much of the English
language teaching had no relevant
content. But now there is an over-
emphasis on memorizing political
slogans in English. They should
instead teach us first how to say
things like 'Good Morning' and
'How are you?' - and how to
actually think a bit in English,"
she said.

Michel Debre, French defense
minister, wrote, "The day Europe
launches a European satellite, the
day Europeans tread the surface
of the moon unaccompanied and
unassisted, it will be possible to
say that Europe has a chance."
"The road will be long, the cr-

Foreign Secretary Sir Alex
Douglas-Home of Britain said 'that
by 1975 he expects to see ".a great
