WAR WITH EURASIA

(BERRY) OCEANIA FORCES HAD D0UBLEPLUSGOOD VICTORY OVER EURASIAN FORCES ON THE MALABAR FRONT IN SOUTH INDIA TODAY. MINISTRY OF PEACE OFFICIALS REPORTED THAT TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND ENEMY TROOPS WERE KILLED WITH TWICE THAT NUMBER SUFFERING INJURIES. BIG BROTHER ANNOUNCED IN A STATEMENT THAT THE STRATEGIC COUNTERATTACK WAS A DECISIVE VICTORY OVER EURASIA. "COMRADES, THIS TRIUMPH IS PROOF THAT OCEANIA FORCES ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD. WITH THIS VICTORY, OCEANIA WILL MARCH FORWARD TRIUMPHANTLY AND DEFEAT THE ENEMY. WAR IS PEACE."

OCEANIA FORCES BEGAN THE ATTACK AT DAYBREAK, THE 52nd, 75th, AND 122nd AIRBORNE DIVISIONS STRAFED EURASIAN CAMPS RELAYING COORDINATES TO LAND BASED ROCKET BOMB DETACHMENTS WHICH SENT VOLLIES OF THE NEWLY DEVELOPED STAR BOMBS TO KEY TARGETS. THE 5TH OCEANIC BOMBER SQUADRON DROPPED SEVERAL TONNES OF BOMBS OVER THE AREA.FLATTENING THE SURROUNDING TERRITORY FOR SEVERAL KILOMETERS AND EFFECTIVELY RENDERING THE EURASIAN ARMY HELPLESS.

GENERAL TIBBETTS AND GENERAL SWEENEY PLANNED THE STRATEGY BASED ON VARIOUS SOURCES OF INFORMATION THROUGH MONTHS OF ESPIONAGE WORK. LATE LAST WEEK ALL OCEANIA CONVENTIONAL GROUND FORCES WERE EVACUATED FROM THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF THE MALABAR FRONT. THIS TACTIC CONVINCED THE ENEMY THAT OCEANIA HAD CONCEDED A DEFEAT.EURASIAN FORCES MOVED FORWARD TO TAKE THE TERRAIN LEFT BY OCEANIA RETREATING FORCES. ONCE EURASIAN BATTLEMENTS WERE MOBILE, PENETRATION IN THE FORM OF A SURPRISE ATTACK WAS POSSIBLE.

GENERAL TIBBETTS COMMENTED BRIEFLY AFTER THE VICTORY THE KEY TO THE OPERATION WAS TO APPEAR VULNERABLE. THE EURASIANS WERE FOOLS TO BELIEVE THAT OCEANIA FORCES WOULD RETREAT. EVERYTHING HAS A PURPOSE OUR STRATEGY WAS A COMPLETE SUCCESS." GENERAL SWEENEY ADDED,"OCEANIA HAS THE BEST ARMED FORCES IN THE WORLD. ALL COMRADES ARE UNUTED IN THE WAR TO RID THE WORLD OF EURASIAN PESTILENCE. WE CAN STAND PROUD TODAY."

Goodest weld award

(FREEMAN) AN ARC CONTROL SYSTEM IN WELDING AND A NEW STRAIN OF CORN, VICTORY STRAIN NUMBER 2D, RECEIVED FIRST PRIZES IN THE NATIONAL AWARDS FOR INVENTIONS DURING THE FIRST HALF OF 1984.

DEVELOPED BY A RESEARCH GROUP HEADED BY COMRADE ROBERT UPSHOT OF THE MINISTRY OF PEACE, THE NEW WELDING SYSTEM IS A REVOLUTION IN THE TRADITIONAL CONTROL METHOD USED SINCE THE WELDING ARC WAS INVENTED BY THE PARTY IN 1965. IT AUTOMATICALLY CONTROLS THE ARC TO KEEP IT STEADY AND RAISE THE QUALITY OF THE FINISHED PRODUCTS. IT PROVIDES A NEW WAY TO IMPROVE THE WELDING QUALITY OF LOW-ALLOY. HIGH INTENSITY STEEL PRODUCTS AND PRESSURIZED CONTAINERS.

USED WITH WELDING ROBOTS, THE SYSTEM WILL BOOST AUTOMATION IN THE WELDING INDUSTRY. IT WILL BE APPLIED IN VARIOUS INDUSTRIES, INCLUDING MACHINE-BUILDING, CHEMICAL,PETROLEUM, MARINE, SHIP-BUILDING, AVIATION AND ATOMIC ENERGY.

THE NEW CORN STRAIN WAS DEVELOPED BY COMRADE JEREMY MASON OF THE MINISTRY OF PLENTY BY COMBINING NUCLEAR RADIATION AND HYBRIDIZATION. IT IS RESISTANT TO LEAF BLIGHT, LEAF SPOT, AND HEAD SHUT, THREE COMMON DISEASES WHICH SO FAR CANNOT BE CONTROLLED BY, ANY KNOWN CHEMICALS. ON THE AVERAGE, THESE DISEASES CAUSE OCEANIA A LOSS OF HALF A MILLION TONNES OF CORN A YEAR BECAUSE THEIR INCIDENCE IN ORDINARY CORN STRAINS IS GENERALLY MORE THAN TEN PERCENT IN THE NEW STRAIN. PRE-HECTARE OUTPUT OF THE VICTORY STRAIN IS 15 TO 20 PERCENT, OR 750 KILOGRAMMES MORE THAN THAT OF THE ORDINARY STRAINS.

THE TOTAL GROWING AREA OF THE VICTORY STRAIN NUMBER 2 IN THE SEVEN YEARS BETWEEN 1977-04 HAS REACHED 6.27 MILLION HECTARES, ADDING AN EXTRA HARVEST OF 4.7 MILLION TONNES OF CORN. IT HAS BECOME THE MOST POPULAR CORN STRAIN IN OCEANIA IN THE PAST TWO YEARS.

THE TWO FIRST PRIZES, FOUR SECOND PRIZES 34 THIRDS AND 20 FOURTHS WERE CHOSEN BY THE RECOMMENDATION AND EXAMINATION COMMITTEE FOR INVENTIONS UNDER THE MINISTRY OF PEACE'S AGRICULTURE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMISSION.


crimes
(FREEMAN; BEFORE HE WAS ARRESTED, CHARLES SAINT-FIELD WAS A CANTEEN SUPPLIES AGENT FOR AIRSTRIP ONE'S REVOLUTION COLLIERY. IN TWO YEARS HE POCKETED 100,000 DOLLARS FROM SELLING LARGE QUANTITIES OF GRAIN AND EDIBLE OIL HE HAD EMBEZZLED.

THE SAINTFIELD CASE IS ONLY ONE OF SEVERAL SERIOUS ECONOMIC CRIMES FOMENTED BY THE DESPICABLE AND UNDERMINING FORCES OF GOLDSTEINISN AT THE REVOLUTION COLLIERY. FACTS SHOW THAT DISORDERLY MANAGEMENT AND BUREAUCRATIC SLIPSHODISM HAVE SERVED TO PROTECT^ AND COVER UP SUCH CRIMES.

THE REVOLUTION COLLIERY LEADERS HAD LONG AGO BEEN INFORMED OF THE FRAUDULENT SUPPLIES SAINTFIELD HAD MADE BUT NONE OF THEM CARED ENOUGH TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. IN 1982, WHEN SAINTFIELD MADE OFF WITH 70,000 KILOGRAMS OF GRAIN AT ONE TIME A COLLIERY LEADER HAD THE ACCOUNTS CHECKED AND FOUND NOTHING WRONG. THIS ENCOURAGED SAINTFIELD TO COMMIT BIGGER OFFECNCES. IN 1983 HE STOLE 400,000 KG. OF GRAIN 900 KG. OF EDIBLE OIL AND MANY OTHER MATERIALS.

BRIBERY WAS YET ANOTHER WEAPON FOR SAINTFIELD. HE BRIBED 50 PEOPLE.

ROBERT WEST, A CONSTRUCTION TEAM LEADER, LIKEWISE BRIBED HIS WAY DOWN THE ROAD OF CRIME. HE LINED HIS POCKET WITH $48,000 FROM THE $150,000 WORTH OF PUBLIC PROPERTY HE HAD EMBEZZLED WHILE UNDERTAKING A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT IN 1979-83.

IN A COMMENTARY ON THIS ODIOUS VIOLATION OF PARTY SOLIDARITY BIG BROTHER HAS WARNED ALL SHIRKERS AND BACKSLIDERS THAT THE EXEMPLARY FORCE OF PARTY JUSTICE WILL CONTINUE TO ROOT OUT ALL ANTI-PARTY SABOTEURS. HE WARNED ALSO AGAINST THOSE WHO REFUSE TO EXERCISE VIGILANCE IN THE FIELD AND ALLOW SUCH CRIMINALITIES TO PERSIST.

"WHILE THE CRIMINALS SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, BUREAUCRATS WHO NEGLECT THEIR DUTIES SHOULD ALSO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR SERIOUS ECONOMIC CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. IRRESPONSIBLE BUREAUCRATISM HAS LED SOME PEOPLE TO APATHY. THIS EXPLAINS WHY THE PARTY HAS REPEATEDLY URGED THOSE UNITS UNDERGOING PARTY CONSOLIDATION NOT TO SLACKEN THEIR EFFORTS IN COMBATING THOSE WHO SEEK PERSONAL GAIN BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THEIR POSITION AND POWER AND THOSE WHO HAVE SHOWN " SERIOUS BUREAUCRATIC TENDENCIES.

JUBILATION FILLED THE STREETS OF OCEANIA TODAY AS CITIZENS LEARNED OF THE INCREASE IN THE STANDARD OF LIVING. WORKERS MARCHED OUT OF FACTORIES AND OFFICES PARADING BANNERS THAT PROCLAIMED LOVE FOR BIG BROTHER AND THE NEW, HAPPY LIFE HIS WISE GUIDANCE HAS BESTOWED.

THE MINISTRY OF PLENTY RELEASED A REPORT FOR PRODUCTION OF CONSUMER GOODS WHICH REVEALS THAT THE STANDARD OF LIVING HAS RISEN BY NO LESS THAN 20 PERCENT OVER THE YEAR. SELECTIONS FROM THE REPORT SHOW THAT FOODSTUFFS HAVE INCREASED IN PRODUCTION BY 36 PERCENT OVER LAST YEAR; CLOTHING IS UP 17 PERCENT; AND BOOTS HAVE INCREASED TO 57 MILLION PAIRS.

THE REASON FOR THE INCREASES IN PRODUCTION DERIVE FROM IMPROVED INVESTMENTS AND ADHERANCE TO FORECASTS PRESCRIBED IN THE FOURTH QUARTER OF THE NINTH THREE-YEAR-PLAN. A SPOKESMAN FROM THE MINISTRY OF PLENTY ENCOURAGED BY THE RESULTS OF THE FINDINGS DESCRIBED THE INCREASE AS A PROGRRESSIVE STEP TOWARDS A NEW, HAPPY LIFE.

OTHER INCREASES IN PRODUCTION INCLUDED HOUSEHOLD FURNISHINGS UP 13 PERCENT AND SANITARY GOODS UP 25 PERCENT, INCREASES IN RATES OF PRODUCTION INCLUDED MILITARY COMMODITIES UP 23 PERCENT . THE REPORT CONCLUDED THAT A PRICE DECREASE OF 10 PERCENT FOR BREAD, MILK AND EGGS HAD ALSO OCCURRED SINCE LAST YEAR.

ORDER OF THE DAY
(GALE) COMRADES, AS WE RALLY TOGETHER FOR HATE WEEK. LET US NOT FORGET THE THOUSANDS OF DEDICATED AND ARDENT PARTY MEMBERS WHO ARE UNABLE TO SHARE THIS GLORIOUS OCCASION WITH US. AS WE MEET FOR HATE WEEK, OCEANIA TROOPS WILL BE ENGAGED IN BATTLE WITH THE TERRIFYING POWERS OF THE EURASIAN FORCES IN SOUTH INDIA, BRAVELY DEFENDING THE PRINCIPLES OF INGSOC. LET US DEVOTE THE ORDER OF THE DAY TO ONE OF THESE FINE COMRADES. TO AN ABSENT FRIEND. A HUMBLE BUT NOBLE PARTY MEMBER. A COMRADE WHO UNDER THE MOST HEROIC CIRCUMSTANCES SAVE HIS LIFE IN BATTLE "AGAINST THE DREADED EURASIAN ENEMY.A COMRADE WHOSE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF LIFE ARE WORTHY OF EMULATION BY ALL.

COMRADES, TODAY WE COMMEMORATE COMRADE OGILVY. AT THE REMARKABLE AGE OF THREE, COMRADE OGILVY HAD REFUSED ALL TOYS EXCEPT A DRUM, A SUBMACHINE GUN AND A MODEL HELICOPTER. THROUGH SPECIAL DISPENSATION AT THE AGE OF SIX, COMRADE OGILVY JOINED THE SPIES AND BECAME GROUP LEADER THREE YEARS LATER. WHEN THE ASTUTE COMRADE OGILVY WAS ELEVEN, HE DENOUNCED HIS UNCLE TO THE THOUGHT POLICE AFTER OVERHEARING A CONVERSATION WHICH HAD CRIMINAL OVERTONES.

BY SEVENTEEN, HE HAD BECOME A DISTRICT ORGANIZER OF THE ANTI-SEX LEAGUE AND AT NINETEEN, DESIGNED A HAND GRENADE WHICH KILLED THIRTY-ONE EURASIAN SOLDIERS.

"WE AIM FOR THE COMPLETE AND FINAL ELIMINATION OF GOLDSTEINISM. WE FEEL COMPLETE AND WHOLE IN OUR DEVOTION TO BIG BROTHER," THE TWO COMRADES SAID.

BIG BROTHER IS PROUD OF COMRADES RICHARDS AND PHILLIPS AND SALUTES THEIR WORK.

OCEANIA AGRIYOUNG
(Freeman) SINCE THE THIRD PLENARY SESSION OF THE PARTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE OUR PARTY HAS ADOPTED A SERIES OF CORRECT RURAL ECONOMIC POLICIES WHICH HAVE BROUGHT GREAT CHANGES TO THE RURAL AREAS OF OUR LAND. IN THE PAST FEW YEARS MANY RURAL YOUTHS HAVE DONE A LOT OF THINKING ABOUT SOCIETY AND THEIR OWN FUTURE, THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR TRADITIONAL BELIEFS ABOUT THE COUNTRYSIDE AND, HAVE CAST ASIDE THE IDEA THAT "THOSE WHO LIVE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE HAVE NO PROMISING FUTURE," RURAL YOUTHS NO LONGER FEEL ANY SENSE OF INFERIORITY TO THE URBAN YOUNG PEOPLE. NOW THEY HAVE NEW IDEAS, EXPRESSED BELOW BY ONE SUCH YOUTH WHO SEES GREAT STRENGTHS IN THE PARTY'S RURAL SECTOR.

1.) THEY ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THE EXISTING SOCIAL CONDITIONS AND THE PARTY'S RURAL ECONOMIC POLICIES. THEY HAVE A NEW CONCEPT ABOUT THE VALUE OF RURAL YOUTH. POSSESSING LOFTY IDEALS, THEY ARE FULL OF CONFIDENCE ABOUT THEIR FUTURE AND AMBITION FOR PROSPERITY THROUGH HARD WORK. 2.) THEY WANT TO ENLARGE THEIR SOCIAL CONTACTS IN VARIOUS OCCUPATIONS AND ESPECIALLY WITH SPECIALISTS IN THEIR CHOSEN PURSUITS. THEY HOPE TO BE GUIDED BY, AND CO-OPERATE WITH, THESE SPECIALISTS.

3.) THEY ARE KEEN TO ESTABLISH A SPECIALTY. THEY DO NOT MIND WORKING HARD IF THEY CAN HAVE A CHANCE TO QUICKLY LEARN SOME ADVANCED TECHNIQUES IN PLANTING. BREEDING, FOOD PROCESSING OR SERVICE TRADES.

4.) IN ORDER TO BECOME SELF TAUGHT COMPETENT PEOPLE AND GOOD RURAL PARTY MEMBERS THEY ARE HUNGRY FOR PRACTICAL AND POPULAR AGRICULTURAL READINGS.

5.) THEY LIKE TO LIVE SEPARATELY FROM THEIR PARENTS AND OWN SOME FURNITURE AND APPLIANCES IN ORDER TO HAVE MODERN, HAPPY FAMILIES.

6.) THEY HOPE TO ENJOY MORE CULTURAL AND RECREATIONAL PARTY ACTIVITIES.

INGSOC APPOINTMENTS
INGSOC IS PLEASE TO ANNOUNCE THE APPOINTMENTS OF COMRADE FRIEDA MOELLING AS DEPUTY ASSISTANT OF THE ANTI-SEX LEAGUE, COMRADE MORGAN SMITH AS MANAGING EXECUTIVE OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE FOR OCEANIA COMMUNITY CENTRES, COMRADE STEWART GRANGER AS THE VICE PREMIER TO THE INNER PARTY SELECTION COUNCIL AND COMRADE BILL STEVENS AS PRODUCTION MANAGER FOR VICTORY DAIRY PRODUCTS.

THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF THESE INNER PARTY MEMBERS HAS GREATLY IMPROVED THE PRODUCTION AND MORALE OF OCEANIA. COMRADE MUELLINS HAS SPENT THE LAST SIX YEARS AS SECRETARY OF THE CENTRAL REFORM SECTION OF THE ANTI-SEX LEAGUE . COMRADE SMITH WAS CHAIRMAN OF COMMUNITY CENTRES FOR SECTION SIXTEEN. COMRADE GRANGER HAS DISTINGUISHED HIMSELF ON SEVERAL INNER FARTY BOARDS AND COMMITTEES SERVING THE NEEDS AND SECURITY OF INGSOC AND FINALLY COMRADE STEVENS WAS LINE SUPERINTENDENT FOR VICTORY DAIRY PRODUCTS BYPRODUCT DIVISION.

motor vehicles
(FREEMAN) BY THE END OF LAST YEAR, 2 MILLION MOTOR VEHICLES WERE PRODUCED IN OCEANIA. THIS REPRESENTS 8O PERCENT OF THE VEHICLES ON THE ROAD TODAY, OR MORE THAN FORTY TIMES THE NUMBER IN 1949, WHEN OCEANIA WAS FOUNDED.

BEFORE LIBERATION, OCEANIA HAD NO AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY. ONLY A FEW REPAIR SHOPS IN LONDON AND OTHER CITIES ON AIRSTRIP ONE. THERE WERE ONLY 50.000 AUTOMOBILES IN THE COUNTRY. ALL MADE AND DRIVEN BY CAPITALISTS.

SOON AFTER LIBERATION OCEANIA BEGAN BUILDING ITS FIRST HOTOR VEHICLE PLANT OUTSIDE AIRSTRIP ONE. IT WAS LISTED AS A KEY PROJECT IN THE FIRST THREE-YEAR-PLAN WHICH BEGAN IN 1956. THREE YEARS LATER. THE PLANT TURNED OUT THE FIRST AUTOMOBILE.

TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS LATER, 2.400 STATE-OWNED ENTERPRISES ARE PRODUCING 300.000 VEHICLES A YEAR. THERE ARE MORE THAN 37 MAJOR ENGINE-PRODUCING FACTORIES AND MORE THAN 2,000 ASSEMBLY PLANTS THROUGHOUT OCEANIA.

FROM 1949 TO 1934, THE MOTOR VEHICLE INDUSTRY EARNED THE STATE 11 MILLION DOLLARS IN PROFITS AND TAXES, 2.7 TIMES AS MUCH AS THE STATE HAS INVESTED IN THE INDUSTRY.

SINCE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW ECONOMIC POLICIES IN OCEANIA, THE MOTOR VEHICLE INDUSTRY HAS ENTERED A NEW STAGE. THESE ENTERPRISES NOW CAN PRODUCE 82 TYPES OF VEHICLES IN SIX CATEGORIES (HEAVY-WEIGHT LORRY, CROSS COUNTRY CAR, SELF-DISCHARGING LORRY, TRACTOR, TOWN BUS AND SEDAN), AND 200 VARIETIES OF SPECIAL-PURPOSE CARS IN TEN STANDARDIZED CATEGORIES.

GOOD THINKFUL PARTYSERVE
(FREEMAN) OCEANIA HAS BEGUN TO OPERATE COMPANIES THAT PROVIDE HOUSEWORK SERVICES AS A PART OF THE EFFORTS TO VARY THE ECONOMIC STRUCTURE AND REINFORCE THE CAMARADERIE EMBODIED IN THE PRINCIPLES OF INGSOC.

THE GOODTHINKING HOUSEWORK SERVICE COMPANY, WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED AT THE END OF THE LAST YEAR IN LONDON, IS THE FIRST IN OCEANIA. PARTY YOUTH, RETIRED WORKERS AND LABOURERS ARE TRAINED THEN ASSIGNED TO PARTY MEMBERS' LIVING QUARTERS. BY MARCH 2,500 HOUSEHOLDS HAD ASKED FOR THE COMPANY'S SERVICES. NOW MORE THAN 450 PARTY MEMBERS ARE DOING WORK FOR IT.

OF THESE 2,500 HOUSEHOLDS 33.3 PERCENT ARE WORKERS, 63.2 PERCENT ARE PARTY MEMBERS WORKING IN EDUCATION, CULTURE, MEDIA AND MEDICINE. THE MINISTRY OF PLENTY SAYS ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF THE HOUSEHOLDS ASK FOR SOMEONE TO LOOK AFTER THEIR CHILDREN AND 18 PERCENT NEED ATTENDANTS TO CARE- FOR AGED PARENTS.

COMRADE REGINALD CHURCHILL, DEPUTY MANAGER OF THE COMPANY VOLUNTEERED FOR HIS POST AFTER GRADUATING FROM THE MINISTRY OF PLENTY'S COLLEGE OF EDUCATION SAYS THE WORK IS VERY SATISFYING. "IT GIVES THE PARTY YET ANOTHER GLORIOUS OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN MORE CLOSELY IN THE LIVES OF THE CITIZENS OF OCEANIA." HE SAID.

MINIPLENTY OFFICIALS POINT OUT ALSO THAT AFTER AN INVESTIGATIVE TOUR OF LONDON THEY DISCOVERED THAT THE HEAVIEST BURDEN OF HOUSEHOLD CHORES ON NEARLY 70 PERCENT OF WORKERS AND STAFF IN THE CITY IS THE GREATEST OBSTACLE TO STUDY, WORK AND PARTY DUTIES.

THE MINISTRY WANTS HOUSEHOLD WORK SOCIALIZED. FOR A LONG TIME IT HAS BEEN THE PRACTICE IN OCEANIA FOR MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY TO DO THE HOUSEWORK, THE MINISTRY OF PLENTY EXPLAINS.

USUALLY NURSERIES, KINDERGARTENS AND HOMES FOR THE AGED ARE RUN BY THE STATE. THIS PRACTICE PROVIDES GREAT, CONVENIENCE FOR THE PEOPLE BUT THE STATE ALONE CANNOT SOLVE ALL PROBLEMS CONCERNING HOUSEHOLD WORK, OFFICIALS ADMIT.

THE GOODTHINKING HOUSEWORK SERVICE COMPANY WAS FOUNDED TO REDUCE THE BURDEN ON THE STATE AND HELP PEOPLE COPE WITH DIFFICULTIES IN THEIR DAILY LIVES, MINIPLENTY SAYS. RECENTLY THE ALL-OCEANIA WOMEN'S FEDERATION AND OTHER CONCERNED PARTY UNITYS HELD A MEETING AT THE GOODTHINKING COMPANY HOPING TO ENCOURAGE REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE PROVINCES AND BIG AND MEDIUM-SIZED CITIES TO SUPPORT HOUSEWORK SERVICE COMPANIES.

WAR IS PEACE
EVEN THOUGH ROCKET BOMBS HAVE FALLEN AT A GREATER RATE THESE LAST FEW DAYS MINITRUTH OFFICIALS SAY THERE IS NO NEED FOR ALARM.

THE BOMBINGS ARE THE LAST GASPS OF A FALTERING ENEMY, AND THE TARGETING IS SO UNRIGHT AS TO BE A FUNFUL UNSUCCESS.

DAMAGE IS RESTRICTED TO PROLEQUARTERS. INDEED, SCURRYING THROUGH THE RUBBLE HAS BECOME A NEW UNDAY FORM OF PROLEFEED.

INNER AND OUTER PARTY MEMBERS HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR THE BOMBS AND SHOULD PUSH FORWARD WITH THEIR GOODTHINKFUL HATE WEEK PREPARATIONS. BI6 BROTHER URGES YOU TO CONTINUE IN THESE PREPARATIONS.

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.
