Transcript devised a special "material" and "intellectual" regimen for the poor Soviet folk who come to these places in the quest of rest from work. What this regimen amounts to we can judge by the following excerpts from an explanatory pamphlet issued in 1934 by the Soviet trade-unions4: (page 39): . . . the scientific study of the repose of workers is the study of the influence of "organized" rest on the restoration of the forces and the increase of the productivity of the workers' labor. Such a study is of great importance in the rationalization of the worker's rest . . . (page 12): Every system of worker rest in the USSR serves directly the ends of socialist construction, of the increase of the productivity of the workers' labor and the health of the working class. (page 40): The studies carried on by the ''Institute of Hygiene and Labor Pathology" in Odessa have shown that the repose of our socialist worker ought not to be the old "rest after labor" but should be transformed into "rest for labor," rest for the raising of the worker's productivity. For that purpose, the most adequate, the most rational forms must be found in all spheres. What is the meaning of this conception of rest "for" labor instead of rest "after" labor? (page 12) : The repose of our Soviet worker should consist of a careful synthesis allying the recuperation of strength and energy to cultural and political development. The physical culture exercises of those who rest should prepare them to pass successfully the test of "Ready for Labor and Defence." Special days of political education, as well as military marches, should be organized . . . All of this forms a solid basis permitting us to destroy for ever the extremely harmful prejudice, inherited from the bourgeoisie, that repose is not only "doing nothing," that is not work, but also something opposed to work. The "naive" worker dreamt of liberating Labor. His guardians raise for him the monster idol of holy Labor, which crushes him even during his repose. What previous society has dared to form such a conception? The "Ready for Labor and Defence" is an insignia of military preparation accorded to men and women citizens who have passed certain athletic and shooting tests. This is forced on the workers during their vacations, when they have no "political days" and military marches. The workers must not be let alone. They must not be left time to think. An idling mind is dangerous. In the name of and with the aid of science, the mind of the vacationing worker must be kept occupied. But that applies only to workers. Not everybody in the USSR needs the same protection. Only a few kilometers from "Livadia," you can see with what disdain this "science of rest," wished on the common population, is treated by the Soviet notables. There each customer has his own large 4Rest for Workers, with the sub-title: Security." 'The Task of the Trade Unions in Social 31
