APRIL 2, 1M2 FIXES GOAL FOR Industrialization Is Huge Program COTlRfFiR II* Peg on Which Slalin Hangs Propaganda for • Communist Regime. EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the Kcond of a series ol two articles about the tenth anniversary of Jekeph. Stalin's election as general secretary or the Communist party. • • * BY MaiON BKONNER Eitrajfao Mauftr, NEA Service : LONDON.-Whlle Russia is celebrating- thfl 10th anniversary of Joseph - SUHn's election as general secretary , of the Communist party, there Is , another matter which Is fastly more interesting to people ogtside of the Soviet state. it can be expressed in the ques- -jn. How Is the five-year plnn 'ing? What has It accomplished? Mat does the 10th anniversary of Stalin's accession to power men in Uie . development of Russia's Communistic form of socfity? Where (Joes Russia get her money? To begin with, the date set for completion of the five-year plan has bean moved forward to Dec. 31, 1932. That date will be only a little more than four years alter the plan was begun. The shortening of the schedule is supposed to indicate that the plan has met with greater success than was expected.. ','- '•* Peg for Propaganda As a matter of fact, hoir?ver. the five-year plan was never n hard-and-fast affair, it is a misnomer. and isn't the first plan. It is and has been extremely flexible. It represented ft mark to shoot at, a. pig" on which to hang propaganda—little' more. ' The fiKvycar plan represented Stalin's attempt (o make Communism work. Private trnclln? was abolished, except for a fe-,v relatively small and unimportant exceptions. Ths peasants were to be collectivized; that, is, 'enormous state-operated farms, housing hundreds of workers and their families, were to take the place of the individually cultivated little farms that had existed previously. Russia was to de- flop "her natural resources, her ^importation and her manufactures so thoroughly that she could get- along !n complete independent* or other nations of the world. '. Stlf-S«Pp«rliBt Is Aim . : That last sentence, incidentally. needs a bit of explanation. It ccoles from the. fact . that most Ru&lans are quite convinc'fl that thfr-Capitalistic powers will sooner or later band together to destroy Communism and restore a capitalistic." government in Russia. Fully halt- of. Russia's, farmland is now . bc.lng worked by .coHectiv- iiect. farms.' -The kulaks; or individual.- peasants who will not join the collectives,- have, fought .a spirited' but tosin? battle. ..More ••than 700 new foctories equlpred.tb .handle such basic industrial operations as steel, machinery and electric power, have been built .and equipped sinra the plan. was put into operation. v'Two of % the • greatest of these factories ' are tremendous tractor plants at Kharkov 'and Stalingrad These, last year, produced 16.000 tractors. Russia, today, incidentally. has some 300,000 tractors in operation.' Doe-Third of Steel Plant Bailt At .Magnitogorsk, wlwre th'ere is a stupendous Iron deposit of more than 275,000,000 toris, the MOO.OOO.OOO iron, and steel plant is now about one-third completed. At Kiaietslc, in Siberia, ' wher.; another, vast coal and steel plant is being' prepared, two blast furnaces liave gone into operation. Th*. great Dnieper d»m, built under the di- tion of American engineers, and Mgned to yield '300,000 kilowatts power, is expected to 50 into ration in May. These, of course, are the hlgh- • lights. In general, th^ 'industrial program is: ahead of the schedule i called for in the five-year plan. It was atari! to -triple the production of tools, machinery and other heavy products arid tp double the production of clothing, prepared foods, oil and coal. Production ot food and -clothing and coal hasla?- Itd a bit behind schedule: the other items are ah*act of schedule. It w«s planned, further, to double the number of engineers in Russia and .triple the .number of Allied mechanics. Both classes have bttn vastly increased, but the tbUli envisaged in the five-year plan have not yet been reached. It should be added, too, that Uic program also called for a 60 per cent Increase in wagei and a corres- pcudirw drop In the cost, of living: neither of these goals has been mat. . In the main, then, the five-year plan is pretty much of a scucess; probably a great deal more of a •access than tlic pcoplo who devised it ever imagined it would be.' It Is Inevitable that it will be followed by a. new five-year plan. This new five-year plan is to be completed by 1*37. it calls for 2SO.OOO.OOO tons of coal, 22000000 tons of pig-Iron. 130,000.000 tons of wheat and 109,000,000.000 kilowatt boon of electricity. Other phases el the plan have only been sketched .roo»hly by Soviet leaders and WJ be made known before the end LENINGRAD RUSSIA MOSCOW JIIV WILL GET SPICER'S CSSE Second Hand Fufnlturd Dealer Qiarged with Receiving Stolen Goods. After a week-end vacation the .rial Jury In the c»sc ot H. P. pker, 02 yrai- old second liana opens Monday to return _ _,. Inal arguments In this cose »re .•et to' be heard.

Penally upon convlc- Ion Is a tenn of on* year or more n . the state pcnllenllaiy, c second hand dealer Is ac f I of stealing or rfcflvlrur two The immensity of the program to change agricultural Russia to Industrial Soviet can be realized by a study of this map. At Glgam, vast state farms have been established with fanners working on a collective scale. Giant tractor factories are at Kharkov and Stalingrad. Dnieper Dam and the huge hydro-electric power plant is complected while the steel mills located at the great or~ deposits near Magnitogorsk are'one-third built. At the right'is an Interesting copyrighted camera study by Margaret Bourke-White, showing the type ol peasant the Soviets are trylnjr. to transform into mechanics. • 'tt* current five-year plan has in the Soviet spending 132.000,000,000 on Us Industrial program. The question arises if a poor nation like Russia can spend that much money on improvements, without going bankrupt,' why can't a nation as rich as the United States spend a greater amount without seriously affecting its financial, structure? Another question the flve-year plan lias brought up is how the Russians financed the industrial development? Sell Internal Bonds Among Its methods of finance are the Russian Internal bonds. They are sold in much the same way as the' Liberty bonds were sold, during..the World War. Their purchase Is almost obligatory. cst-bcaring bond he usually 15 paid 7 per cent. But if he prefers, he can carry a lottery bond and gamble on the return. Theoretically, with enough' V per cent bonds, the Russian could livo on the Interest. But In so doing he might label himself as a capitalist arid exile or execution would Mow. '".'•" ' . ; Credit to tho country is placed at »MO,000,000,. while .the sum of SI 0,000,000 Is represented as foreign capital now working Russian concessions. • • • • •• • . ••-. . Iron Hint Fays Inflation has not been primarily the state's treasure box. To prove denominations of one, three, flve, this, paper money was issued in 10 and occasionally 20 rubles, but not in denominations of a' thousand or a million. Some hav;? said the natural resources are her capital, but it takes time to liquidate such. To liquidate them, the .Soviet has established an iron belt around her consumers. Often she takes what ;he thinks she can sell, even if she needs it -badly and pays a nominal price for It with her own currency, thus giving her gold. Cash must be gotten and the belt around internal Russia is tied tighter whenever the Sovfet state needs cash. And it 1s this iron ring that is paying for the five- year plan which is gradually nearing completion ahead of time.

What inconvenience would result! How much telephoning, and shopping around to get the answers to such questions as: "What's playing at the downtown theaters? When will that new vacuum cleaner be on sale? Who is offering th.e bargains? Wnere can I buy that dry shampoo Emily told me about? The answers to these questions, and to hundreds of similar ones that people ask every day, are news. Vital news. You're interested to learn who won yesterday's ball game. But you're really interested to learn that a certain store is selling a product you need for a price you can afford to pay. Furthermore, the advertisements save your time, for you can read them at home, away from the push-r ing crowds, and plan just what to buy and where to puy. And they save your money, by enabling you to adjust your needs to the limitations of your budget.
