The 25th Red Armies was founded in Nov, 1932. Because
of Wangming's wrong policy, the whole troop had to leave for
northwest. On Aug 15, 1935, they reached Hui area at the foot
of Liupan Mountain.
Before entering Guyuan City, all the soldiers in the Red Armies
learned the national minorities' policy. The military leaders
had meeting with local Ahongs to propagandize the Party's
policy. In the following three days, the Red Armies soldiers
helped local people to clean the streets. Some military doctors
gave medical treatment to patients. The Red Army also had
to abide by the "Six Principles of the Red Army".
Put back all doors when you leave a house
Rice-stalk mattresses must all be bundled up again and returned
Be polite. Help people when you can.
Give back everything you borrow, even if it's only a needle.
Pay for all things broken, even if only a chopstick.
Don't help yourself or search for things when people are
not in their houses.
At the end, more than ten Hui men decided to participate in
this army. After the troop left Xinglong Town, they conquered
Longde County seat and sent the war booty to poor people.
In Aug 18, they fought against the enemies in Watingxia. In
Aug 19, they marched to north of Shanxi Province.
