Transcript achieved at the Dnieprostroi in the sphere of large-scale engineering. The successful damming of the middle channel of the Dniepr is one of these great achievements. Another is the fact that the Dnieprostroi has broken the world record for setting concrete. This record hitherto was held by the United States, at the Cono- vingo power station, the size of which is somewhat smaller than the first section of Dnieprostroi. "The Conovingo station reached a monthly setting of 56,000 cubic metres of concrete. At the Dnieprostroi 58,000 cubic metres have been reached. It is worth noting that the American and German expert commissions, which have already been working for two years, did not consider the Dnieprostroi programme of production a practicable one, and declared in favour of a more protracted period for carrying' out the works, basing themselves on the conditions which had prevailed prior to the present year. This mistake was due to their under-estimation of the importance of socialist competition, which has developed most extensively at Dnieprostroi." I could quote a number of other illustrations of socialist competition at our works and factories no less striking than those at the "Comintern" works and the Dnieprostroi. Socialist competition, emulation in the successful fulfilment of programmes of production, in the reinforcing of labour discipline and the raising of labour productivity, is growing everywhere. The number of shock brigades, which organise the most advanced participators in the competition, is growing constantly larger, notably in Moscow, Leningrad, Ukraine and the Urals. On January 21st, the anniversary of Lenin's death, the trade unions and the Young Communist League appealed to the working class of the Soviet L'nion to enrol 500,000 members in the shock brigades as a "Lenin levy." In the short space of a month over 900,000 working men and women had entered the shock brigades. This rapid rate is characteristic of the growth of the shock principle in our factories. lu some cases the workers pass on from the usual forms of competition of individual workers and groups, of individual shops and works, to new forms of socialist emulation. Such higher forms are productive groups and productive communes in the works. The aim of the usual forms of competition is to increase the productivity of labour and to carry out the programme of production, leading as a general rule to an increase in wages in keeping with the individual degree of skill of the various participators. When productive "collectives" and communes are organised in a works, the case is different. Those who take.part in the productive communes, which as yet are not very numerous, pool their wages and divide them up equally amongst themselves. 2 1
