of Women." Mao's wife had pro-
moted and sponsored the modern
ballet. It featured the struggle of

The ballet apparently was
chosen as the one least likely to
offend the Nixons. It makes no
mention of "U.S. imperialism," a
feature of much Chinese art.
The ballet's scene is Hainan
Island, off South China. The time
is the civil war between the Peo-

Chinese press would have seemed
unreal a few days ago.
Leading the way was the Peo-
ple's Daily, newspaper of the
Communist party. A headline
across the top of its front page
said: "Chairman Mao meets
President Nixon." The front page
carried three pictures of Mao,
Nixon and Chou.
The rest of the page was de-
voted to the meeting between Nix-
on and Mao and other events on
the President's first day in China.
Four more pictures on an inside

"Right now, the department head
has responsibility for salaries," she
said. "Now that pay lists are pub-

"Are we now going to second-
guess why one person is getting

training, experience, and merit to
consider in salaries," he said.
"This calls into question the
whole decision-making process,"
he continued. "Is the public now
to make decisions on salaries?"
