    ACTING in accord with our great leader Chairman Mao's great teaching "It is highly necessary for young people with education to go to the countryside to be re-educated by the poor and lower-middle peasants," several million of the country's educated young people have, in the past year or so, gone to the countryside and mountainous areas to be re-educated by the workers, peasants and soldiers. This is a great revolution. Comrade Chin Hsun-hua is one of the outstanding figures who have emerged in this great revolutionary torrent.
   Graduated in 1968 from the senior class of the Woosung No. 2 Middle School in Shanghai, Chin Hsun-hua had been a standing committee member of the Congress of Red Guards of Shanghai Middle Schools. During the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, he closely followed Chairman Mao's great strategic plan and plunged into the fierce battle to shatter the bourgeois headquarters headed by the renegade, hidden traitor and scab Liu Shao-chi. With the lofty aspiration of defending and building up the frontier and the sincere desire to be re-educated by the poor and lower-middle peasants, he went in May 1969 to settle in the Shuangho Brigade of the Hsunho People's Commune in Hsunko County, Heilungkiang Province, northeast China. To save state property, he heroically gave his life last August 15 in battling an exceptionally big mountain flood. At the cost of his precious life, Comrade Chin Hsun-hua carried out his firm pledge: "I will work with might and main as long as I live, and I will dedicate my life to Chairman Mao!" He truly was worthy of being a good Red Guard of Chairman Mao and a shining example for the revolutionary educated youth.
   In the practice of class struggle and the struggle for production, Comrade Chin Hsun-hua gained a deep understanding of the great truth "Closely following Chairman Mao means victory and being loyal to Chairman Mao gives one strength." It was precisely this great truth that lit up his way forward and gave him the strength to advance. With boundless proletarian feelings and the high consciousness of revolutionary responsibility, he persevered in studying Chairman Mao's works every day, always followed Chairman Mao's teachings.

Acted according to Chairman Mao's instructions in everything and wholeheartedly followed Chairman Mao to make revolution. He consciously used Mao Tsetung Thought to fight self-interest and criticize revisionism and remould his own world outlook. He modestly learnt from the poor and lower-middle peasants and sincerely accepted re-education by them. He made strict demands on himself in every aspect and really incorporated Mao Tsetung Thought into his soul and used it to guide his actual struggle. Chin Hsun-hua wrote in his diary that "whatever you do, ask yourself whether it meets the needs of the people; whatever you say, ask yourself whether it conforms to Mao Tsetung Thought; whenever you take a step forward, see whether you're following Chairman Mao's revolutionary line."
   Studying Chairman Mao's works by the light of a kerosene lamp in the countryside, he thought: "However small the wick, our minds are always aglow when WG study Chairman Mao's works. The more we study, the more aglow our minds become. This is because Mao Tsetung Thought lights up our way forward."
   When his hands bled from tying millet stalks into bundles, what came to his mind was: "Why did my hands bleed, but the hands of the poor and lower-middle peasants didn't? This shows that my thinking and my hands have long been separated from the workers, peasants and manual labour. This means I've been influenced by the poison of revisionism. I must undergo a long process of being tempered among the workers and peasants."
   Through revolutionary practice in the countryside, he found in himself the common weakness of the intellectuals: wavering and a lack of the thoroughgoing spirit in making revolution and separation from manual labour, practice and the masses. He profoundly understood that the poor and lower-middle peasants were his best teachers. "The intellectuals will accomplish nothing if they fail to integrate themselves with the workers and peasants." From the poor and lower-middle peasants, he acquired their deep proletarian feelings of boundless loyalty to our great leader Chairman Mao, their revolutionary spirit of fearing neither hardship nor death and self-reliance and hard struggle, and their noble qualities of loving the collective and labour. He thus fostered the proletarian view of life of willingly being an "ox" serving the people all his life and daring to make any sacrifice for the revolution. Faced by the plots and provocations of U.S. Imperialism and Soviet revisionist social-imperialism, he felt: If the enemies dare to invade our sacred territory, I will go to the battlefield at the first shot and wipe them out. Facing the ordeal of death, he thought: "When we die for the people it is a worthy death"! During his courageous fight against the raging floods in defence of state property, he was sucked into deadly whirlpools three times by stormy waves. But each time he stubbornly raised his head above the water and continuously sped through wind and waves to save state property. His is indeed a lofty heroic image of a proletarian revolutionary fighter!
   Comrade Chin Hsun-hua's heroic image reflects the spirit of China's revolutionary young people. It symbolizes our revolutionary youth who are rapidly growing up on the road of integrating with the workers, peasants and soldiers pointed out by Chairman Mao, and are becoming reliable successors to the revolutionary cause of the proletariat in China.
   The imperialists, modern revisionists and reactionaries of all countries are banking on our country's third and fourth generations to restore capitalism in China. But their sweet dreams will be swept away by China's sturdily maturing young people who are nurtured by Mao Tsetung Thought. Our proletarian revolutionary cause will always advance victoriously in the direction pointed out by Chairman Mao. Let the imperialists, revisionists and all reactionaries tremble before our revolutionary young people who are growing up healthily!
   We warn the imperialists, revisionists and all reactionaries that the Chinese revolutionary young people armed with Mao Tsetung Thought are not to be bullied. If U.S. imperialism and Soviet revisionist social-imperialism dare to invade our great motherland, we will certainly give them a taste of the iron fists of China's third and fourth generations!
