Comrade Litkens:

In view of the appointment of a “New broom” to Tsentropechat,[1] [2] an effort should be made to establish precise administrative responsibilities:

1) lay down most precisely in writing the responsibilities of the head of Tsentropechat and the gubernia heads,

2) ditto, in respect of the library network:

(a) general state (Public and Rumyantsev) libraries

(b) gubernia

(c) uyezd

(d) volost libraries (unless it is too early, unless you have decided to confine yourself to uyezd libraries for the time being)...

3) you (and we) must be absolutely sure whom we are to jail (both from Tsentropechat and the library network; from both institutions without fail), if within one month (2 weeks? 6 weeks?) after the publication of every Soviet book it is not available at every library. Send me a short report on this.
