    Background: Peking, the capital of the People's Republic of China. The flowers are in bloom Spring is here. The bright and sunny days of spring invites an endless flow of visitors and holiday to the scores of scenic spots and parks in the environs of Peking. An ancient proverbs goes 'A year's plan begins in Spring.' The industrious and hard working people of China always make a good start in their work in spring.

    Spring arrives early at the people's communes where educated youth, now working as peasants, are busily engaged in all kinds of farm work. These young people are helping to pave the way for the coming 3rd 5-year plan.

    Peking was wholly a consumer city before liberation when it couldn't even make a pin. Today it has become a modern, industrial city. A mass drive for technical innovations is underway this spring to further raise the rate of industrial output. The device calls for comparing with, learning from and catching up with the advanced and helping those who lag behind. These electric motors for agricultural use is ready to be shipped to people's communes.

    The people's commune has been forging ahead with flying colors for seven years. Its vitality and prosperity grow with each spring. This is the dairy farms of the Sino-Vietnamese ???.

    People's Commune located on the outskirts of Peking Recently, it built a new type of milking room with a revolving platform equipped with electric milking machines. The milking is done at the rate of about 200 cows per hour - an effective labour saving device indeed!
    New apartments factories and schools are shooting up like mushrooms after a spring shower. Over half of the living quarters in peking have been built after liberation.

    The building floor space fold Peking was about 10 thousand square a year. The annual figure is now 4 to 5 million square meters.

    In the food markets, fresh spring vegetables are available earlier this year and in richer varieties, too. Fresh flowers galore! And if you like, buy some for your home.

    The children are livelier than ever inspiring. Here they are flying kites in a big square. Peking, and a lovely spring mean so much fun and happiness for the youngsters!
