Transcript now being built, one on the Kama River, the other on the Volga. \ fourth center is slowly taking shape at Alma-Ata to process uranium from the Kirghiz and Taelzliik Republics and Sinkiang. Its hydroelectric plant drawing power from adjacent rivers had almost been completed there. A fifth alomie center is being buill near Irkutsk, a region with inline-free-zing I I'm perei I ii re's for six months of lhe year. Construction of a larger plant was started here in 1919. wheal pumps eiml compressors were provided by the dismantling program in Easl Germany, Thi' power sieition now being pul up is nn giant. But lhe gov - ernmenl plans I" develop on the Angara River, probably after 1957. the Soviets' largest hydroelectric plant. Ex-premier Malcnkov's new assignment as minister to electric power stations indicates the importance ol the new power program: treble the I .S.S.R.'s electric power output in the nexl ten Mens. It is now 112.5 billion kilowatt-hours per year (1951). In the same year the I .S. electric power output weis 520 billion kilowatt-hours uf which the -\ioinii Energy Commission took a I per cent bite. Bv 1956 that will he tipped lo a whopping 13 per cent and lotal output will he greater also. No thermonuclear or atomic weapons progress is imaginable withoul the eliel nf electronic calculating equipment and lhe various specialized instruments used for measuring and controlling manufacturing processes. The production of these—-bottleneck number three — was beyond ihe means of postwar Soviel technology ami planl capacity. Consequently eill laboratories and research in- sliiutcs were divested of precision instruments emd calculating devices, mostly of foreign origin, in order to prepare lln- firsl atomic explosion. \ tremendous effort heis since been made lo bridge the gap. In the early postwar Veens Soviel atomic industry vvas so desperately short of electronic calculating equipment lhal no attempt In set up 8 native industry seemed worthwhile, because of the time element. The burden "f producing the equipment weis loaded. in large pari, on the satellites, especially die Siemens-Schukerl planl in Easl Berlin. To gel into the thermonuclear weapons realm a huge complex of elec Ironic calculating equipment and industrial control devices are required, their lack in the Soviel Union cosl Rus- ~i:in alomie progress several precious *'3irs. Executives of the Kinil Greiner Company, one of the leading producers Jnd developers of scientific tools for "nliistrv in America, sav the' I nited Nieii.s j, eii least ten M-eirs ahead of any ''llur country when it comes lo inslru- ''leiits designed to do ei faster or more Precise job in numerous new manufacturing processes. ••'ACTS FORUM NEWS, June, 1955 —Wide World Photos "Pravda" released these two pictures describing the top one as Russia's Atomic Electric Power Station, and the lower one as the roped-off top of atomic reactor which is embedded in concrete. Diameter of reactor fop is probably around twenty-five feet. In an article published in hvestia lasl May, Soviel Academician A. Berg claimed wilh whal can be termed a si I of joy. Ilieil Russia now possesses "the electronic miracle machines, iheel thev occupy liiiiulie'els ol square meters eiml ilieil Russia heul lo "purchase them al a very high price." Wheel Academician Berg did nol sen weis iheil lhe celebration was made possible by ihe work nf abducted German scientists ami the industrial capacity of the satellite countries. And the achievements lhal prompted Berg's glee probably sufficed onlv lo lake' Soviel atomic lechnieieliis to the threshold of H-bomb production. N.'w advances bring new problems eiml due io the Soviel orbit's limited electronics planl capacity, Soviet atomic science may again be held back hy the calculating equipment and precision instrument bottleneck, The genera] consensus of experts is thai Sov iii atomic weapons production is slill a Ira.lion of lhal oi the U.S.— perhaps one-tenth, lhe Soviel nuclear »iei| s program is being maximalh expedited, and ii would be dangerous folly lo underestimate Russian strength in this domain.
