Comrade Smolyaninov:

Please look through regularly and collect everything about Centrosoyuz.

There is need to work out a number of time-tables for their monthly reports ((the same for GUM==State Department Store)).

Roughly: (1) turnover {{ bought sold }} by main groups of products

(2) by gubernia

(3) % of gubernias reporting inaccurately. Without fail (4) Unpunctual gubernias up on the list of shirkers which should be published, etc.

2/XII. Lenin

P.S. Let me have these tables at the C.L.D.
See if any conclusions can be drawn from them about the procurement of raw materials and their type.


[1] Written on a typed copy of a report: “Centrosoyuz turnover in relations with gubernia societies and district sections. Data on commodity turnover of the sections for September–November 1921   in millions of rubles of present currency”. Lenin drew four pencilled lines under the word “Centrosoyuz”.
