§ 10 of the September 9 law on measures to improve the supply of schools makes it binding on the People’s Commissariat for Education to issue instructions.
There must be especial caution over § 6 (the end, the right of exchange). This should be allowed not otherwise than with full submission of accounts by a given date; detailed rules; otherwise, imprisonment for stealing.
Co-ordinate with the People’s Commissariat for Justice and show me before signing.
The same on § 8—fees for libraries and clubs.
There should be extreme caution; we can’t hamper attendance. Show me before signing.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
 § 6 of the decision dealt with the granting to schools of the right to exchange articles of state supply they did not need for the necessary foodstuffs. § 8 included the point about voluntary “self-assessment” by those who used libraries and clubs.
