Transcript upon us can by no means be adequately served by the numerically limited old cadres. We are building a number of greal undertakings, and developing branches of industry which in the old Russia either did not exist or existed only in embryo. The motor and tractor industries, a number of new chemical industries, light metallurgy—all this vast process of construction necessitates new knowledge, and cannot be completely served by the old personnel. In the sphere of agriculture the question of personnel is even more acute. There were very few old experts in this sphere, and scarcely any at all in Russia with a knowledge of large-scale agriculture. The question of cadres for agriculture leads directly to that of training large numbers of new experts in various branches of economy, and at the same time of re-training a considerable part of the old experts. Finally, we have to train our own, very numerous cadres for cultural work, reconstruction of living conditions, etc. Despite the tremendous growth of activity amongst the workers, despite the expansion of the shock brigade movement and other forms of socialist competition, we encounter at every step incapacity to direct this growing activity along the proper channels and utilise suitably the labour enthusiasm if the masses. The problem here is both the unsatisfactory character of a considerable portion of the engineering and technical personnel and (not infrequently) the poor acquaintance of our economic leaders with the essential principles of the productive processes. The same reasons explain the slow application of the principle of one-man management in the administration of industry. Yet the Party requires the resolute application of the principle of one-man management, beginning with the workshop and ending with the highest economic authorities. Only given this condition can the strict responsibility of economic and technical managers for the work committed to their care be ensured. Without it we cannot secure a rapid rationalisation of production, nor, consequently, the lowering of the cost of production while improving its quality. The introduction of one-man management in our factories must be reinforced by the active support of the workers' organisations, and must create still more favourable conditions for an increasing participation of the workers in the management of industry. Such a system of management represents a big step forward in the organisation of socialist production. The more decisive are our successes in the training of new cadres and the re-education of the old, the more quickly and successfully shall we applv the principle of one-man management. The closer the approach to the workers on the part of our engineers and technicians, and the better they understand the necessity of relying in their work on the active support of the proletarian organisations, while main- 40
