People's Liberation Army."
The posters signed by "the
first and fourth bureaus of the
ministry, were put up on the
wall near the Ministry of Eco-
nomic Relations with Foreign
Countries," the Japanese report
ACCORDING to reports from
Hong Kong, the Chinese press
has begun an oblique campaign
to prepare for Teng's reappear-
ance. Teng's name has not been
mentioned, but a series of arti-
cles in the People's Daily, the
official Communist party news-
paper, have praised as "frag-
rant flowers" his writings on
the party, science and national
Radicals had- condemned the
three documents as "poisonous
weeds" and used them exten-
sively in the campaign for his
latest purge in 1976.

Hong Kong newspapers re-
ported in March that wall pos-
ters in Canton were announc-
ing Teng's appointment as vice
TENG WAS A protege of the
late premier Chou En-lai and
it was his following of Chou in
emphasizing industrial progress
above strict ideological purity
that brought him into conflict
with radicals led by Chiang
Ching, widow of Chairman Mao
Teng made his last public ap-
pearance when he read an ad-
dress at Chou's funeral in Janu-
ary 1976. Teng then was accused
of "right deviationism" by the
radicals. After the riots at Pe-
king's Tien An Men Square in
April 1976, he was ousted from
all his posts.
Teng was first purged in 1967"
when he was accused of being
the "No. 2 capitalist roader"
after the disgraced President
Liu Shao-chi.Chou rehabilitated

Teng in 1973 and he was expect-
ed to succeed Chou.
. YESTERDAY'S reports fol-
lowed a report by Yugoslavia's
official Tanjug news agency that
a formal decision about Teng's
rehabilitation and the expulsion
from the party of the so-called
gang of four radicals could be
decided at a forthcoming 11th
party congress.
Tanjug quoted Chinese sources
in Belgrade as saying that the
congress should begin at the end
of July or in August.
The gang of four, including
Chiang Ching, fell from power
in October 1976, a month after
Mao's death. The radicals were
accused of trying to seize pow-
er from Hus Kuo-feng, Mao's
handpicked successor and a
moderate, and install Chiang
Ching as party chairman.
vice premier would raise the
question whether he would suc-
ceed Hua as premier with Hua
remaining as party chairman.
Teng is ohe of China's most
experienced administrators and
a tested theoretician. In his Pe-
king career stretching back to
1952, he has been party secre-
tary-general and standing com-
mitteeman of the Politburo in
addition to his higher positions.

By the time
we're old enough to
have children, we've
been thoroughly sold
on the idea.
By our parents,
our grandparents,
our friends and
neighbors, the media,
It's hard to
remember we ever
had a choice in the
first place.
But there is a
choice. Having a
child is a tremendous
responsibility and
an important decision.
Probably the most
important decision
we'll ever make.
And once it's
made, it can never
be undone.
Just remember..
you do have a choice.
So think about it,
and do what's right
for you.
