TOP OF THE WEEK:
THE CHINA NIXON WILL SEE: (SPECIAL REPORT) Next week the nation's TV screens will offer Americans a historic and paradoxical sight: the Presidentof the United States moving in state through the People's Republic of China. For more than twenty years,most Americans viewed China as an unalloyed tyrannyand an implacable foe. Then, with the bounce of aPing Pong ball, Peking signaled its desire for betterrelations with the U.S., and scores of Americans cameflocking home from China with wondrous tales of anegalitarian utopia without slums, crime or VD.
Both the old contempt and the new admiration forChina rested on dangerous oversimplifications. Accordingly, when Mr. Nixon announced his trip lastJuly, Newsweek immediately began to plan the Special Report on China, illustrated with eight pages ofcolor photographs, that appears in this issue. Frominterviews with scholars, refugees and nearly 100recent visitors, Newsweek correspondents, writers andresearchers directed by Senior Editor Edward Kleinprepared this 22-page portrait of theChina that President Nixon will see.
The picture that emerges is of aland of endless contrast and contradiction. Arriving at a realistic appraisal of this complex and alien society will be a monumental task forboth Mr. Nixon and the country -- andone of monumental importance aswell. (Newsweek cover photo byHarry Redl -- Black Star.)
THE HOAX AND THE HOAXED: The great Howard Hughes fiasco careened towardits denouement last week in typically antic style. Lifemagazine, which had trumpeted its acquisition of theHughes "memoirs" just two months ago, blushinglybranded Clifford Irving's manuscript a "hoax" -- andLife's sister magazine, Time, unblushingly trumpetedits plans to tell how Irving had flummoxed Life andthe McGraw-Hill Book Co. Some of the Irving manuscript's best morsels were traced to an early versionof another book about Hughes by his onetime lieutenant Noah Dietrich. Meanwhile two grand juries werestill digging into the Irving case. With files from TomMathews in New York and Martin Kasindorf in LosAngeles, General Editor Richard Boeth writes the latest installment of the tall story. On page 113, Associate Editor Peter Gwynne explores the expertise ofthe handwriting specialists who originally vouched forthe "Hughes" documentation -- and who changed theirminds last week.
TOPSY-TURVY IN SAPPORO: There was a distinct Alice in Wonderland quality tothe Winter Olympics at Sapporo, Japan, last week. Apoorly rated U.S. team won quite a few victories. TheSwedes and Russians fought, and the Swiss ran awaywith the slalom. Pete Axthelm writes the story.
