Moscow newspapers carry a listing of mortal sins for au-among Russian writers, A. A. Surkov. They include the following: Art for arts sake, naturalism, objectivism, cosmopolitanism, nihilism, leftism, sociologism, primitivism, bourgeois nationalism, conflictlessness. ideaiessness, decadence, philistinism, formalism. The Soviet writer who manages to avoid the snares of all these "isms has the possibility of getting into Soviet writers heaven-still another ism. This is known as socialist realism. It Is called realism because it is expected to bear some relation to actual reality and be portrayed n a manner comprehensible to all including those whose IQ is pretty low. Wrestling NCAA Oklahoma A&M. Big Seven Oklahoma, Big Ten Purdue. East Pittsburgh. Southern West Virginia. Skyline Colorado A. & M. Retained title. tivism. All these writing heresies date in to the early period of Soviet history before Stalin cured by drastic methods some writers who thought they were creating new proletarian culture for the workers. The Soviet writer who passes by these traps may fall on the question of nationalism. If the writer does not put in his work quite enough Russian and Soviet Chauvinism to suit the party he may be accused of cosmopolitanism or, even worse, of nihilism. These are serious since they are said to play into the hands of the "American warmon gers. IT IS CALLED Socialist because the particular type of reality which the Soviet writer is expected to depict is that which the Communist Party approves. Before Joseph Stalin died there was one savinig grace to the situation: If Stalin liked a particular work then it was "socialist realist In character. If he did not, it was up to his hired hair-splitters to find a name to describe his dislike. Whatever it was called In the end the work itself was through. Since there Is no Stalin any more the present Soviet govern ment called a writers congress to define things. An analysis makes these points clear: When party critics look at any Soviet literary work they ask if it contains any Communist ideology. If it has none, the author has committed one type of sin. The critics might, depending on what kind of a work it was, label it as reeking of art for arts sake, or perhaps decadence, or even phil istinlsm or Ideaiessness. Any of these terms could be just another way of saying that the work is too interesting to the reader, that it only amuses and does not preach Communism, that it isnt plugging the party and the party line. BUT THE WORK could also be Junked for haring too much Communist Ideology an overdose, so to speak. In such a situation would be suffering from such Ills as leftism, sociologism, or prim! to MONDAY A.M. 2:15 Gufla Light 7:06 Mon toe Shew 240-Beh CmhY 0 46 0 In 9 Sefe. 245 Minltal Variety P.M. 346 Brlfhttr Go 1:45 Duett Star 3:15 Meyl Quit 2:90 Greatest Gift 346 Oa Yeur Aeeeum MOBILE WALA, Ch. 10 SATURDAY P.M. 746-Raa( Rtr 12:00 "Ltttltet Aneei" 740-PI th.

Thus If work should seem to smack even slightly of contempt or dislike for other nationalities, to suggest that they cant be goocL Communists too, this might be bourgeois nationalism. Nor is this the last danger. Theres the question of how much to gtld the particular Illy Soviet life. If the author makes it look so good that even the dumbest Soviet reader can figure out hes being fooled, then that comes under the head of conflictlessness. But If the writer depicts things as he sees them he almost certainly will fall Into naturalism, objectivism or even formalism. All these words cover a situation in which the Russian work of literature looks too much like the real McCoy to be much help in building Communism," a task which the Soviet writer must never forget is his.
