A Railway worker's Diary - 16 June 1953

6 March 2012
 

16 June 1953, Tuesday

The reference materials still haven't arrived, so for three hours in the morning we just sat around studying a book titled General Knowledge about Economic Development. One person read one section, then everybody joined the discussion over the subject matter mentioned, then moved on to the next section.

After lunch between 1pm and 2pm, I had a nap. Then the team leader asked me to draw up charts. When we worked, the old comrades sat aside learning Southern dialect from us. Li and Zhang are particularly interested in Southern Tongue, and whenever got a chance they would tried to learn a few words. I decide to acquire a fluent Northern Tongue as soon as possible.

We have been working and living together only for three short days, but we've already become quite close to each other. Despite I still feel the difficulty in adjusting to the harsh living condition here, yet spiritually, I'm very happy. My heart is as free as during my college years.

1953年6月16日,星期二

上午因资料还没有来,仍不能工作。7时开始学习政治(经济建设常识读本),持续了三小时。学习的方式是由一位同志先读一节,然后分段讨论。

下午一时到二时,我睡了个午觉。然后组长叫我划表格。我们划的时候,老同志在旁边向我们学习南方话。李、张二同志对南方话特别感兴趣,老是问长问短的。我决定在短时间内尽快学好北方话。

虽然来此只有短短的三天,但大家已经相处得很熟了。虽然在生活上总感到有些不习惯,但我在精神上是很愉快的,就像在学校时那样的自由自在、无拘无束。
