COLLINGS Associated Press Writer MOSCOW (AP) - Siberia is suffering from a critical labor shortage. This sprawling, rich expanse of the Soviet Union once had plenty of workers—men sent during the Stalin years to forced labor camps. With the.partial'relaxation of police state controls since Stalin's death in 1953, many forced laborers and ethnic groups which had been deported to Siberia have been allowed to return home. The Soviet state has tried to encourage other workers to . move to Siberia to fill the gap. Harsh living conditions and ners—when they are Hoping to rapidly exploit Siberia's rich material deposits,, oil, timber and power resources as the future backbone of national industrial growth. The labor situation -is believed to be one of several factors prompting the Soviet government to seek Japanese help in jointly developing parts of Siberia, Negotiations with Japanese businessmen have not yet been completed for the long-term projects. Premier Alexei N. Kosygin recently visited two Siberian areas known to suffer from the labor shortage. One was the remote city of Norilsk, north of the Arctic Circle and some 2,flOO other problems have discour-j miles northeast of Moscow, aged some would-be settlers " from making the move, and prompted others already there to leave. Founded in 1935, it was built entirely by inmates of a prison camp in a frozen area rich with uranium, copper and platinum. One recent survey at the big' Norilsk is the Soviet Union's industrial site of the Sorsk mo-1 northernmost industrial center. lybdeniim plant in central Siberia's Krasnoyarsk region showed that 201 persons were leaving for every 100 who arrived. The labor shortage comes at the wrong time for Soviet plan- Living conditions, one diplomat says, are "hellishly harsh." The average January temperature in the area is -22. The town's remoteness—850 miles north of the nearest major city — makes transportation costs for consumer goods prohibitively high. Studies by Soviet scientists have shown that cities like Nor- ilsk have to spend much more than other cities to make living Astrological Forecast By Owroll Righwr SUNDAY GENERAL TENDENCIES: SUNDAY, March 31st, 1968 is not a very important day or evening but one in which you, _ . have all kinds of opportunities I ° n al to quietly look at a course of swle ot action that can both fit in with make real headway In attending to bills, planning how to increase your abundance, have more of life's goodies.
