COMMENT ON THE ARTICLE „HOW TO PLAY TABLE TENNIS“ BY HSU YIN-SHENG

Comrade Hsu Yin-sheng‘s talk and Comrade Ho Lung‘s comment should be printed and circulated among the comrades in the Centre, who, I hope, will have more of this kind of thing printed and distributed when they go back to their regions. Comrades, this is young „generals‘“ challenge to us, the old ones! Should we refuse to learn anything from them? The talk is full of dialectical materialism and is throughout opposed to idealism and metaphysics. I have not read anything so good for years. What he Hsu talks about is a ball game; what we can learn from it are theory, politics, economy, culture, and military affairs. If we do not learn from the young „generals“, we shall be doomed.
