    WANG PING-WEN, a regimental commander of a Chinese People's Liberation Army unit under the Peking Command, has rendered outstanding service in defending Chairman Mao's revolutionary line during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and in supporting the bread masses of the Left. The leading organ of the Peking Command recently conferred the order of merit, first class, on Wang Ping-wen and called on all commanders and fighters to learn from him.
   Wang Ping-wen is the son of a poor peasant. Always "looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life," he performed meritorious service for the people by fighting bravely against the enemies with guns in the War of Resistance Against Japan, the War of Liberation and the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea. Consciously arming himself with Chairman Mao's theory of continuing the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat, and bringing into full play the thoroughgoing proletarian revolutionary spirit of fearing neither hardship nor death, Wang made new contributions by working selflessly to defend Chairman Mao's revolutionary line during the period of the socialist revolution.
   During the great cultural revolution, when our great leader Chairman Mao issued the call: "The People's Liberation Army should support the broad masses of the Left," Wang Ping-wen promptly responded to this call and asked to be sent to the forefront of the class struggle. His comrades tried to persuade him not to go because of his high blood pressure. But he declared: "I'll give my all to defend Chairman Mao." Filled with militancy, he set out for the forefront of political and military training in schools and colleges. He became political commissar of the second political and military training division of the army stationed in Tientsin and subsequently headed the advance party to the Nankai District.
   Wang Ping-wen and the other P.L.A. commanders and fighters who were supporting the Left went from school to school to conduct thoroughgoing investigations among the masses, propagate invincible Mao Tsetung Thought among the revolutionary teachers and students and spread and  implement Chairman Mao's latest Instructions. Very late one night a few young revolutionaries from Nankai University came to the headquarters of Wang's political and military training division to tell of their struggle against the counterrevolutionary revisionist clique headed by the renegade Liu Shao-chi. Very much appreciating their dauntless revolutionary spirit, Wang Ping-wen praised the young revolutionary fighters: "You have done the right thing, we resolutely support you!" In line with Chairman Mao's teaching; "In order to attack the forces of the counter-revolution, what the revolutionary forces need today is to organize millions upon millions of the masses and move a mighty revolutionary army into action," he did patient and meticulous political and ideological work between the two revolutionary mass organizations of Nankai University and urged them to unite in their common struggle against the enemy.
   In February 1967, with the help of the P.L.A. men of the second military training division supporting the Left at the school, the revolutionary teachers and students of the Yenan Middle School in Tientsin proposed that a revolutionary great alliance be forged on the basis of school classes and that school classes be reopened to carry on the revolution. On March 7, Chairman Mao issued a brilliant directive in regard to the experience of the Yenan Middle School. Wang Ping-wen hailed it, saying: "This brilliant directive of Chairman Mao's gives us tremendous inspiration and shows his great concern for us. We must enthusiastically propagate it and carry it out."
   But the handful of class enemies feared the impact of Chairman Mao's directive and did their utmost to sabotage the revolutionary great alliances. Wang Ping-wen and the revolutionary masses unflinchingly resisted this adverse current. To ensure the rapid implementation of the directive in all schools, he and the other P.L.A. comrades of his military training division spent days and nights going from school to school to spread the Yenan Middle School's experience as widely as possible.
   The struggle to defend Chairman Mao's revolutionary line was waged SO intensively that overwork caused Wang Ping-wen's blood pressure to soar and aggravated his headaches. But he never uttered a word. A doctor tried to persuade him to go into hospital immediately, saying: "What you need most now is rest!" But Wang replied: "No, what I need most now is to continue the battle!"
   Despite his illness, he pursued his work. While talking with the young revolutionary fighters at a middle school, he felt a sharp pain in his head and almost fainted. However, he kept on talking with them for nearly three hours. That evening his headache grew worse. Ignoring it, he telephoned the political and military training section working in another middle school to set an appointment the following day to discuss the forming of a revolutionary great alliance there. That same night he collapsed and the entire right side of his body became paralysed.
   Wang was rushed to hospital in a coma, the result of a cerebral hemorrhage. His superiors, his old comrades-in-arms and the revolutionary people flocked to visit him.
   With profound proletarian feelings the doctors and nurses worked hard to save him.
   A few days later, Wang regained consciousness. Eager to return to work quickly, he fought a stubborn battle against his illness with astonishing perseverance. Enduring the pain, he made great efforts to turn about in his bed. Warmth gradually returned to the right side of his body and gradually he could move his arms and legs. When that happened, with great excitement, he wrote in his diary in big Chinese characters: "Long live Chairman Mao!"
   During his stay in hospital, Wang Ping-wen closely followed the new developments in the struggle between the two classes, the two roads and the two lines. He invited the masses and cadres of some units in the Nankai District to come to his ward for heart-to-heart talks. With his help, they studied Chairman Mao's theory of continuing the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat and Chairman Mao's latest series of instructions, and he encouraged them to bring about revolutionary great alliances and revolutionary three-in-one combinations.
   Under the guidance of Chairman Mao's revolutionary line, revolutionary committees at all levels were set up one after another in Tientsin.
   After he left the hospital, Wang took an active part in the new struggle to consolidate and strengthen the revolutionary committees and conscientiously carry out the tasks of struggle-criticism-transformation. He used Mao Tsetung Thought to help the masses recognize the new features and trends of the class struggle. He advised: "The victory we have already scored, as Chairman Mao has pointed out, 'is only the first step in a long inarch of ten thousand li.* We must firmly bear in mind Chairman Mao's teaching and march forward to still greater victories."
   On March 6, 1969, Wang Ping-wen became chairman of the revolutionary committee in a university in Tientsin. He maintains a resolute grasp of Vice-Chairman Lin's instruction "never forget the class struggle, never forget the dictatorship of the proletariat, never forget to give prominence to politics and never forget to hold high the great red banner of Mao Tsetung Thought." The day the revolutionary committee was established, the committee members ate a meagre meal in remembrance of the suffering in the old society as contrasted to the happiness of the new society. At the first meeting of the revolutionary committee, he suggested that they study Chairman Mao's Report to the Second Plenary Session of the Seventh Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and Chairman Mao's teaching "We Communists seek not official posts, but revolution." He noted: "Now our status has changed, but our revolutionary thinking must never change. We must always be vanguard fighters in continuing the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat and must always be servants of the people."
   Since becoming chairman of the revolutionary committee, Wang has set himself the strict standard of being "an ordinary Communist Party member, an ordinary soldier and an ordinary worker." He goes regularly with the revolutionary teachers and students to do manual labour in factories and production teams. Though his comrades often urge him not to go, he replies: "I must, because in this way I can carry out Chairman Mao's instructions. Taking part in manual labour by the cadres is a long-term measure to prevent and oppose revisionism!*'
   In the struggle to carry out Chairman Mao's various proletarian policies, Wang Ping-wen has never forgotten Chairman Mao's great teaching that only by emancipating all mankind can the proletariat achieve its own final emancipation. In keeping with Chairman Mao's great strategic plan, he constantly goes deep among the masses and does long-term and painstaking work among them. He arms the masses with Chairman Mao's proletarian policies and steadily raises their consciousness in implementing these policies. He fights resolutely against the interference from the "Left" or Right and carries out Chairman Mao's various proletarian policies in every unit. By uniting all forces which can be united, he has helped speed up the tasks of struggle-criticism-transformation.
