Copy to the Narrow C.P.C.
At the end of last December, I wrote to the People’s Commissariat for Education about Prof. Krug’s request to provide the Moscow Higher Technical College with premises for its electrotechnical department and Electrotechnical Institute, and asked that special attention should be given to it, and everything done to meet the request.
On February 9, I received another letter from Prof. Krug, in which he says that the People’s Commissariat for Education has not yet helped the College. Prof. Krug says that it would be quite possible, without causing any inconvenience at all, by way of more efficient use of space by others, to give the electrotechnical department and the Experimental Electrotechnical Institute some of the premises of the former Yelizavetinsky Institute, and have the Radishchev School, now housed at the Institute, transferred to another place by the spring, when the warm weather sets in.
If you do not agree with this proposal of Prof. Krug’s—I instruct you on your personal responsibility to find and make available to the Institute premises within a fortnight.
Inform me of execution by March 3.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
