THE BIGGEST-SELLING PACKAGE SOAP IN AMERICA RUSSIA SETS OUT UPON ITS SECOND FIVE YEAR PLAN New Program Is Even More Comprehensive Than First One. By FKEDBKJC 3. HASKUV WASHINGTON--The end of the world advertised iive year plan by which soviet Russia sought to raise herself by her bootstraps from among: the lowest ranks of industrial nations came almost cuincidcnt- ally with recognition oC the union by the United Slates. On a. new basis and vastly encouraged by resumption of relations with America, Russia has embarked upon tbe second ilve year plan. The plans for this second effort have just been announced. They are even more comprehensive than the plans for the first. There has been a great deal of disagreement among observers of the Russian experiment as to the success of the five year plan. The criticism runs the whole range from the most fulsome praise to the claim of complete breakdown. The truth lies somewhere between these extremes. It seems true beyond doubt that Russia has advanced even beyond what was charted out for the five year .effort in some directions and has fallen short in others. The great task which the Russian leaders set themselves was the transition from a pastoral and agricultural to an industrial nation. Use Foreign Advisers. With the advice of foreign engineers and technicians, many of them Americans, the Russian commissars did build vast dams, power plants, huge housing projects, and an amazing variety of factories. The resources of the nation were worked as never before in all Russian history and the soviet union today 'ranks far above the old Russia of the czars in industrial productive capacity. The plans for the second five year plan show that the effort toward industrialization Is to be continued and intensified and it is the claim of the leaders that when this second lap has been finished, Russia will have reached the level of the most highly industrialized nations in the world, namely, the United States and Germany. There is a great deal of skepticism in the Occident concerning this I statement. Not a few Americans i who have been to Russia and ob- j served the birth pangs of the new nation declare that Russia cannot turn into an industrial nation in one or two generations. There have been many charges made of sabotage in Russia. Russians have arrested men ---notably certain Englishmen--on charges of injuring machinery. It is a well known fact that Russian machinery frequently breaks down. Superintendent Is Ke-KIect«tl. DECORAH, March 29.--T. R. Roberts, superintendent of the De- corah public schools, has been engaged for another year at the same salary, ?3,240 a year. Superintend- ent Roberts is completing his third year as superintendent in Decorah.

Some of the more unbiased foreign observers of a mechanical trend of mind say that the trouble is that any machinery would break down, without the intervention of sabotage, if Russians were operating it. Political adverse critics of the communist theory of government point to Russian failures. The more moderate commentators suggest that the Russians have failed to op- crate their vast systems with the fullest efficiency, not because they are communists, but because they are Russians. Whatever the merits may be, the fact is that the second five year plan calls for further efforts. The five year plan laid down a plan of national economy whereby 76.S per cent of total production should be industrial and 23.2 per cent agricultural. Roughly, this meant that one-fourth of the nation's efforts should be devoted to the pastoral and agricultural pursuits which Russians had immemorially followed while three-fourth should be bent on such things as the making of tractors, power plants, and the like. The second five year plan alters the percentages. It provides that 79.5 per cent of the production shall be mechanical and 20.5 agricultural. The ratio is changed. Only one-fifth of the old and four-fifths of the new. To Step Up Production. Value of industrial production in the last year of the five year plan was about $21,000,000,000. In the last year of the second five year plan there must be, under the program, industrial production to the value of 551,000,000,000. This is hard driving but. as the nation is knit into a working unit largely directec from a single head, it is regarded as a possible goal. The Russian attitude is that there is no doubt about it. An especially interesting change in the outline for the second five year plan as compared with the pre ceding one is noted in that whereas the first effort at industrialization was directed to the extent of 53. per cent toward building and in . stallation of machinery, establishing j I plants and factories, for the second effort, this percentage is cut to 47.1. In the first effort the share allowed consumers' goods was -16.7 per cent whereas the second calls for 52.9 per cent. This means that during the first period it was deemed necessary to devote chief attention to the construction of a plant, a vast national manufacturing plant, which could make things with a minority attention given to the things made. To. the second period it is felt that the plant is well enough along to remit some of the effort and pay more attention to actual products to be used and enjoyed by the people. 75c Petrolatum Hair Oil . 49c 100 Aspirin . .

American admirers of communism, and the Russian experiment, in pointing with pride to the undoubted achievements of the soviet union, always neglect to point out that, even with their great forward strides, the Russian standard of living has only reached about 20 per cent the height of the American standard. The average American would not be greatly pleased if he I had to put up with many things | which the Russian thinks represent a tremendous advance. ·This alteration in the emphasis for the second five year plan holds a promise for very much better times for the average Russian citizen. It appears that, now that the worst of the heavy work is over, tbe factory built, the plant operating, there is a chance that more things will be made available to him for actual human use. i The detailed figures for the sec- j j ond five year plan indicate a new j | deal for the consumer. It was prac- I tically unpatriotic even to ' want anything while the great experiment of the five year plan was in progress. Permitted to Have Tilings. The indications are that Russians not only will be permitted to want but' to have things. The plan for the new period calls for furnishing nearly three times as much meat, once and a half as much fish, more than three times the canned goods as ^ | compared with the 1932 basis. The ] ! program calls for three and one- I third times as much soap, too. Even the electric lighting calls for three , times as much consumers' power for i lighting purposes. In the past, power | had to be directed chiefly to work. About three times as much consumers' goods of all sorts will be produced during the second five year plan and the consumers will get them, because the plan calls for constantly increasing wages. As goods are not produced for profit but for use. as the wealth increases, the i wages w i l l . m o u n t .
