  To emphasize the importance of the teaching and influence of mothers in the home which is so basic in the education of children in the family, two special stamps were issued in 1957 with the stories of two famous mothers-Mencius' (372`289 B.C.) mother and General Yueh Fei's (1103-1141 A.D.) mother-as the central subjects.
