Transcript units at industrial enterprises was still being held under advisement. The staffs for such geological units were recruited from the ranks of "official" geologists. Under Soviet rule the Geological Committee at once rapidly grew both in number and in the amount of funds allotted to it by the state. At the present time the Chief Geological Survey Bureau is allowed a budget of 80 to 90 million rubles, outranking all other geological institutions in the world in this respect. Nevertheless, it is still unable to satisfy all the demands made upon it by various eco-' nomic organiastions. The chief drawback lies in the lack of sufficiently qualified cadres. Exceedingly responsible investigations have to be entrusted to inadequately trained workers. Only last year were higher schools for the training of geologists established. These will help to solve the problem of geological cadres. Even now, after nearly 50 years of work by our Geological Institution, we do not yet possess a complete 10-verst * geological chart, which should furnish the basis for more detailed geological prospecting expeditions in search of minerals. We have not yet even begun to map a complete 10-verst scale (1:50,000) geological chart of Siberia, where an era of great activity has been inaugurated;** nor have we a 10-verst geological chart of such an important mineralogical region as the Caucasus. I am not going to dwell on other shortcomings in his field. We must do our utmost to help the C.G.S.B. * About six and two-thirds miles.—Ed. **Only 160,000 sq. km., or 3.4% of the total area, is covered by detailed geological charting, while material has been published on only 90,700 sq. km. (about 2% of the territory). According to data supplied by V. Vasilyev in his book, Siberia's Power Resources (Novosibirsk 1931), Siberia possesses 7.57% of the world's power resources and 78.9% of those of the Soviet Union. 16
