China welcomes 1st

LO WU BORDER STATION, Hong Kong (AP) - Fifteen members of
the United States table-tennis team and three American newsmen
crossed into the People's Republic of China yesterday, becoming the
first delegation of Americans to visit that country since the Communists
took over in 1949.
Graham Steenhoven, team president, said the Chinese have invited
the Americans to go on several short sightseeing tours and to visit
factories and possibly a farm commune. -
They were scheduled to take a train from the border to Canton
about noon and to leave for Peking last night. The team expects to re-
turn to Hong Kong between April 16-18.

"Go see 'Putney Swope'. A pacesetter with outrageous wit, cou-
rageous creativity, guts and intelligence. Tells it like its never been
told before." -Judith Crist, N.B.C.
"'Putney Swope' is attracting crowds day and night in New York
that are exceeded only by the fans of 'I Am Curious (Yellow)'. But
Downey's trump card isn't sex, it's his refusal to honor the taboos
that Hollywood fastidiously obeys." -Newsweek
"It's all, as 'Mad Comics' would have it, 'humor in the jugular
vein.' It has the raucous truth of a cry from the balcony or the
bleachers. There's vigor in this vulgarity. 'Putney Swope' is a kind
of 'Laugh-In' for adults." -Richard Schickel, Life Magazine
"When I'm Mayor, kids won't be able to see these trashy, R-rated,
movies that corrupt them so!"-Jack Garris

1 P.M.-Mid.

P.S. BY THE WAY, we notice that some of the
other shops around town are offering the Greene's
Handi-Hamper idea. But they can't offer the on-
the-premise refrigerated storage vault of Greene's
exclusive Microclean process. It's a plus to you at
the same price.
