CAPTION ONLY: CHINA CULTIVATES FLOWERS ALONG WITH ITS IMAGE

A Chinese worker places potted plants promoting the U.N. World Conference on Women along a central Beijing street on Friday. The flowers are part of a massive cleanup and beautification program in advance of the gathering, which opens on Sept. 4, and the associated NGO Forum on Women, which opens next week. Main roads to Beijing will be closed except for special buses ferrying participants. China is giving discounts of up to 50 percent to delegates flying in on Chinese airlines (story on A2).
