OUR great teacher and great leader Chairman Mao on August 5 sent mangoes, a treasured gift ho had received from foreign friends, to the worker-peasant Mao Tse-tung's thought propaganda team in the Chinese capital, Peking. The team is publicizing the great thought of Mao Tse-tung in Tsinghua University.
As the joyous news spread, the Tsinghua campus was a scene of jubilation. Cheers of "A long, long life to Chairman Mao!" rang out to the skies. The revolutionary fighters of the team declared excitedly: "Our great leader Chairman Mao's heart is always linked with ours. We are determined to hold the great red banner of Mao Tse-tung's thought still higher, and be boundlessly loyal to the great leader Chairman Mao. Rallying closely around the proletarian headquarters with Chairman Mao as the leader and Vice-Chairman Lin Piao as the deputy leader, we will have a unified will, co-ordinate our steps and actions at the command of the proletarian headquarters and firmly carry out Chairman Mao's latest instructions. We are determined to criticize and repudiate the reactionary theory of 'many centres,' promptly see through and smash the schemes and plots of the handful of class enemies in their vain attempt to undermine Chairman Mao's proletarian headquarters, and win all-round victory in the great proletarian cultural revolution."
Our great leader Chairman Mao sent the gift of mangoes at a time when the people are happily commemorating the second anniversary of the publication of Chairman Mao's big-character poster "Bombard the Headquarters" and the Decision of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party Concerning the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. This not only represents the greatest concern for, greatest faith in and greatest support to the capital's worker-peasant Mao Tse-tung's thought propaganda team itself, but also constitutes the greatest inspiration, greatest attention, greatest education and greatest encouragement to the working class and the worker, peasant and soldier masses of the whole country who are fighting in unity under the leadership of the proletarian headquarters with Chairman Mao as the leader and Vice-Chairman Lin Piao as the deputy leader.
The capital's worker-peasant Mao Tse-tung's thought propaganda team is a new-type, revolutionized and militant worker-peasant propaganda force composed mainly of workers and organized in accordance with Chairman Mao's great strategic plan. With deep proletarian class feelings of infinite loyalty to the great leader Chairman Mao, his proletarian revolutionary line and Mao Tse-tung's thought, they have been fighting shoulder to shoulder with Tsinghua University's young revolutionary Red Guard fighters and the revolutionary students, teachers and staff. They have already achieved great successes in enthusiastically propagating and resolutely putting into practice Chairman Mao's latest instructions. Their revolutionary actions have outstandingly manifested the role of the working class and the broad masses of workers, peasants and soldiers as the main force in the great proletarian cultural revolution and the proletarian educational revolution.
When the happy news reached the Tsinghua campus in the afternoon of August 5, people immediately gathered around Chairman Mao's gift, jubilantly cheering and singing. With tears in their eyes, they again and again heartily wished our most respected and beloved great leader Chairman Mao a long, long life!
That evening they held all kinds of celebrations, and went in the rain to the reception centre set up near the headquarters of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party to express their loyalty to the great leader Chairman Mao. Members of the team also eagerly phoned the units they had come from to report this inspiring and joyous news.
Revolutionary fighters of the team said excitedly: Our great leader Chairman Mao has not only sent us a gift but also the invincible thought of Mao Tse-tung. a spiritual atom bomb of infinite power. Chairman Mao supports us and we are determined to live up to his expectations. Together with the revolutionary teachers, students and staff, we will closely follow Chairman Mao's great strategic plan, implement in an all-round way his latest series of instructions and build our universities into great red schools of Mao Tse-tung's thought We will do a still better job in the creative study and application of Mao Tse-tung's thought, speed up our ideological revolutionization, steel the capital's worker-peasant Mao Tse-tung's thought propaganda team into a vanguard contingent which closely follows Chairman Mao's great strategic plan and implements his latest instructions, and into a revolutionized, militant and strong propaganda team of the working class, and make even greater contributions in winning all-round victory in the great proletarian cultural revolution.
They also expressed their determination to do their propaganda work in a deep-going, thorough, patient and sustained way and ensure that Mao Tse-tung's though! is truly transformed into practical action on the part of the revolutionary masses.
Revolutionary workers and staff of the Peking General Knitwear Mill solemnly pledged themselves always to hold aloft the great red banner of Mao Tse-tung's thought, never forget the class struggle and be boundlessly loyal to Chairman Mao's proletarian revolutionary line.
Four veteran workers from the Peking Hsinhua Printing House sang songs they themselves had composed specially for the occasion, expressing their boundless loyalty to our respected and beloved teacher Chairman Mao and their determination always to follow him in making revolution.
Young revolutionary Red Guard fighters and revolutionary teachers; students and staff of Tsinghua University were overjoyed at this happy event. Many young Red Guard fighters declared excitedly: "This joyous event is also the greatest inspiration-greatest education and greatest encouragement given us by Chairman Mao. We love what Chairman Mao loves and support what he supports. We are determined firmly to support the revolutionary actions of the propaganda team.
