Transcript This leads in turn not only to amalgamation in industry, but to the communalisation of living conditions (hostels, common dining room, etc.). In the "collectives" wages are paid on one common wages book, just as in the communes, but are divided according to the grade to which various groups of participators in the "collective" are allotted. To-day's "Pravda" gives examples of productive "collectives" and communes organised in the Urals, where they have been developed most widely. In the one area of Zlatoust there are over 1,000 such bodies. The experience of this new form of competition has as yet been very little studied. But, of course, these are not the principal forms at present; it must be clearly understood that the principal form at the present time is, and is bound to be, the shock brigades. The advanced workers in the shock brigades have to set an example to the whole mass of workers of how to consolidate intelligent proletarian discipline in the factories, how the activity of the masses should be directed towards raising the productivity of labour, and consequently how to strive to fulfil, and if possible to surpass, the production programme. Naturally, there is still a great deal lacking in the shock brigade movement. Not infrequently formal decisions to set up shock brigades are passed without preliminary work amongst the masses, which, of course, does not lead to real improvements in production. I could quote a number of cases in which works or shops which declared themselves shock undertakings have as yet given no perceptible improvements in production. It would not be difficult to point out tendencies towards "effect" and mere agitation in this movement. The Party carries on an energetic warfare against all these defects. But at the same time socialist competition has already many examples of genuinely successful proletarian initiative to record. Here are two such examples. The first is at the "Stalin" metal works at Leningrad : "After an output in the first quarter of 1929-30 which was 11 per cent, lower than the programme, the 'Stalin' metal works in January, the first month of the second quarter, produced 148 per cent, of the monthly plan, with output to a total value of 2.67 million roubles. "The breakdown in the first quarter was completely liquidated and surpassed in all branches of production with the exception of turbines. The turbine shop, which carried out the first quarter's plan only to 56 per rent., exceeded the plan by 20 per cent, in January, and turned out four turbines instead of three. The boiler shop turned out in the first quarter 20 boilers with a surface area of 683 square metres ; in January alone it turned out 12 boilers with a surface area of 3,800 square metres.
