§ 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).[1] 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)
Chairman, C.P.C.


[1] § 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.
