I find Vashkov’s reply unsatisfactory. Perhaps we should send a telegram from the C.L.D.: to all gubernia executive committees for their electrical departments, etc.
Do not fail at once to appoint two or three responsible persons for submitting to the Electrotechnical Congress in X. 1921 full statistics on electric-power stations with data on the time of their establishment, number of kilowatts, fuel, consumption, arrangement of lectures or readings at the stations, etc.
I think we should send this, shouldn’t we?
