The text beneath the main slogan reads:
From 1956 onwards, mice, sparrows, flies, and mosquitoes should absolutely be eliminated in all possible places within 12 years. Killing sparrows serves to protect crops. Sparrows in cities and forest areas do not necessarily have to be eliminated. (從一九五六年起,在十二年内,在一切可能的 地方,基本上消滅老鼠,麻雀,蒼蠅和蚊子. 打麻雀是為了保擭莊稼,在城市裏和林區的麻 雀,可以不要消滅.)
