Pyongyang, July 12 (KCNA) -- One day in October Juche 39 (1950), President Kim Il Sung had his car stopped near a cabbage field on his way to Changsong County, North Phyongan Province, seeing soldiers engaged in cabbage harvest.

He summoned their officer and asked why they were harvesting cabbages cultivated by peasants.

The officer explained the following reason to him:

The officer went to the ri people's committee to buy some vegetables but the committee officials refused to take money and offered all of a cabbage field to the soldiers free of charge, saying they had nothing to spare for them fighting a war. The officer persisted in paying for the cabbages but to no effect.

Listening to the reason, the President told the officer to correctly count the cabbages and fairly pay to the owner.

In the evening, the officer visited the owner of the cabbage field and paid more than the price of the cabbages.
