Transcript "The whole works staff has pulled itself together noticeably. The number of shock brigades is growing rapidly. On January 15th the works had 60 brigades, comprising 430 members, while bv February 6th the number of brigades had risen to 199, which included 60 per cent, of all the workers employed." (Ekonomic- heskaya Zhizn (Economic Life) of February, 1930.) Here is a second example, the Nizhni Saldinsky works in the Urals : "A splendid model of Communist attitude to work is the activity of the Nizhni Saldinsky workers. On February ist all the main shops joined the C.P.S.U. The works has been 70 per cent, 'com- munised.' The workers who joined the Party at the same time joined the 'collectives.' As a result, discipline and productivity improved greatly. During the first ten days of February the works carried out the programme 102 per cent, for the first time this year" {Pravda, February 13th, 1930). The competition which takes the form of shock brigades is the best method for the socialist training of the workers. It teaches the proletarian masses to approach their own labour in a socialist spirit, and strengthens the first elements of communist consciousness in the working class. One interesting fact should be noted in connection with this. We frequently meet with a situation in which the initiative for developing the shock movement in the factories and works—both in the form of brigades and in the form of productive collectives and communes—comes from the non-party workers. The Central Committee of the Party has recorded the fact that there is a very small proportion of communists and Y.C.L.ers in the shock brigades. The contrasting of these two facts is an indication of bow even the Party organisations lag behind the growing activity of the mass of workers. At the same time, it shows very clearly that the shock movement in present conditions comes from the mass itself and that it is the reflection of a genuinely rising enthusiasm in the working class. It is just this that constitutes the greatest importance of the competition, and the foundation of the stability and reliability of the shock movement. In spite of the fact that some of our organisations lag behind, it is our Party, of course, which heads the movement. In their turn, all the best workers of the shock brigades tend to join the Communist Party and enter the ranks of its most active members. Those communists and Y.C.L.ers who lag behind have to pull themselves together. The watchword of socialist competition was put forward by Lenin as long ago as 1918, but in practice began to be carried into effect on a large scale only in 1929. Scarcely a year had passed
