Transcript as we set foot closer to the Altai Mountains with their snow-clad peaks do we find more or less considerable concentration of water power. The Irtysh and Yenisei Rivers in the Altai region may be made to yield up to 600,000 h. p Far beyond the Yenisei, in East Siberia, the Angara River is good for 700,000 h. p. at the Shaman rapids alone, while its entire capacity should be put at not less than 2 million h. p. Generally speaking, the entire Asiatic part of the U.S.S.R. bids fair to produce a total of 41.5 million h. p. in water power, of which only about 45,000 h. p. have been put to use so far. Such are our water power resources. However, it is generally conceded that the estimates are not based on an exhaustive study of the subject and the totals fall far short of the actual facts. Our general progress and higher level of scientific-technical equipment will in the near future double or triple the totals of our water power resources. Even now, notwithstanding the relatively very low degree of utilisation of these resources, we are already beginning to travel on the highroad of modern industrial development and will soon harness the immense potential energy stored up in our rivers and lakes awaiting the giant but skilled hand of Soviet labour to translate this wealth into a powerful factor of Socialist construction. We have already made true the "splendid dream" of many centuries, by harnessing the ancient Volkov River, famed in the folk-lore of the free warriors of ancient Novgorod. Manacled by ferro-concrete dams and sluices, trapped by giant turbines, this Hercules now turns powerful generators and sends millions of progress-spelling electric units to the City of Lenin. A similar song of toil will soon be sung by another great river, the ancient thoroughfare of the free Cossacks of the Ukraine, made famous by the ballads of Gogol. 51
