Transcript appeal to fill the gaps in the execution of the industrial and financial plan. True, it cannot yet be said that the subsequent mobilisation of Party, trade union, Young Communist and economic organisations has completely ensured the fulfilment of the plan, but there is ample evidence to show that the workers' activity in carrying it out is steadily growing. As an example of this attitude, 1 will quote the case of one of our largest works, the importance of which is enhanced by the fact that the principal items in its programme of production are locomotives, tractors and internal combustion engines. I refer to the "Comintern" locomotive works at Kharkov. On February 13th "Pravda" printed the manifesto of the workers, clerical staff and engineers of this works which was adopted at shop meetings and a works conference. The manifesto states : "During' the first quarter our work was poor and unorganised, arising out of the belief that everything would come right by the end of the year. The rate and methods of work of the factory organisations had not been readjusted in keeping with the economic tasks of the works. The falling short in the first quarter aroused all the organisations. The work was effectively reorganised. Those who tried to gloss things over by assertions that 'there was nothing very much wrong' were firmly put in their place. The whole works was mobilised to overcome the lag. "The reorganisation of all the mass work in the factory, with the object of bringing it into direct touch with the 'shock brigades,'* was begun. The work of the Party groups was overhauled, and 171 industrial groups were organised at different points of production. Every single group had a thorough discussion on the reasons for the breakdown in its section. In addition, the breakdown was studied by specially appointed brigades, and a temporary control commission elected from the whole works. "This made it possible to establish the precise reasons for the breakdown, and to begin the struggle for their elimination. An active part was played by the works paper, the 'Kharkov Locomotive Worker,' which began to appear every other day, instead of weekly as hitherto. Every other day shop wall-papers began to appear, showing how the programme was being carried out and drawing attention to the section lagging behind. A special leaflet for the workers, engineers and technical staff was issued, daily communiques were introduced in every shop, and inspections of the evening and night shifts were made. All these measures greatly increased the activity of the workers, and the temporary control commission received over 200 suggestions for improving the process of production. Socialist competition also received a * Voluntary groups of workers who set the example in better work, elimination of waste, etc. !9
