Russian Auto Factory
Boasts of No Strikes
And Certain Market
By Russell Barnes
MOSCOW, April 28.—The average
American industrial^ would con
sider himself well on if he could
solve his problems as successfully as
has Ivan Likhachev. director of the
Stalin automobile works and still
the largest producer in the Soviet
Mr. Likhachev, a stocky Russian
in a grey blouse, manager of the
Stalin plant for 21 years, a member
; of the Communist Party, sat in his
office beneath portraits of Lenin
Stalin. Molotov and Kaganovich and
gave :his report on his operation:
There have been no strikes in 21
years and he does not anticipate any
Plant Has No Labor Troubles.
The plant has no labor troubles
The government fixes wages.
The plant works two 48-houi
Approximately 80 per cent 01 aL
wages are paid on a piecework basis
Labor Is short but there are plentj
of raw materials.
Sales are no problem because the
government takes the entire output
The changeover for new 5-tor
truck which is set for production
later this year will require about twc
weeks. Mr. Likhachev's chief com
plaint is that it takes a year to If
months to obtain tool deliveries from
thp United States, and he suspects
politics may be involved.
Limousine Looks Like Packard.
The Stalin plant, which was estab
lished in Czarists days, is primarily
a truck producer. Mr. Likhachev
said it produces a luxury limousine
which greatly resembles a Packard
at the rate of one dally. A new
passenger car model is in the works
but the director said its design is
secret. Asked about the resemblance
between the handsome limousine
and American models, Mr. Likha
chev replied:
"Some parts have been taken from
various cars. It is not necessary to
get something new when all parts
of automobiles have been invented.
We are only manufacturing one car
a day of this class because we don't
need any more."
Asked the size of his labor force,
Mr. Likhachev replied it numbered
"several tens of thousands." But he
was more communicative about la
bor conditions.
Average Pay 900 Rubles.
He said the average pay in his
plant is 900 rubles a month, but it
is possible for a skilled worker with
bonuses to receive up to 2.500 rubles.
It is impossible to translate those
incomes into dollars, not only be
cause the ruble has no fixed dollar
cvjui ν nxc-iiL·, uuii aiou ucvauoc α ντυι λ
er considers the quality of his hous
ing, the amounts of his food and
consumers goods, and other such
factors as part of his remuneration.
Mr. Likhachev, in addition to the
fact that the government fixes
wages, attributed his lack of labor
trouble to the speed with which
grievances are «handled. He said
every case is decided within 48
hours. The bulk of complaints, he
declared, concerned job quotas, or
norms as they are known in Russia.
Workers May Leave.
j The Stalin plant also operates 23
restaurants and 40 buffets in addi
| tion to theaters and vacation resorts
for workers. When the plant is
closed for retooling or men other
wise are forced to lay off, they re
ceive three-fourths of their basic
During the war men were frozen
on their jobs, but now, with the
permission of his factory manager,
a worker is able to quit and take
another job.
Asked about plant efficiency, Mr.
Likhachev, who has visited America
three times and seemed to be
familiar with Michigan plants, de
clared :
"It is equivalent to American
truck plants. We turn out a vehicle
with 182 man-hours of work."
Machine Tools are American.
A partial trip through the Stalin
plant revealed it to be a collection
of old factory buildings plus some of
modern type. All machine tools
seen were American except for a
few of German manufacture. Ma
terials generally are moved by hand
and by truck rather than with con
The truck production line, which
clears from 120 to 200 trucks daily,
resembles a Detroit line except, for
the absence of feeder lines. Parts
are stored alone the line. Because
of the small production of limou
sines, there Is no power line
models are pushed along from
operation to operation. But be
cause this job is practically custom
made throughout, the plant seemed
more modern and contained the
latest models of machine tools.
AH told, there are three plants
in Russia manufacturing passenger
cars and five producing trucks. But
plants also turn out other govern
ment work. The Stalin works, for
example, also is producing parts for
! tractors and agricultural ma
I chinery. Signs about the factory
ι urged workers to speed the output
: of farm machinery to help col
lective farms Increase the food
The Stalin works at Moscow does
not appear as efficient as Michigan
plants but undoubtedly it is pro
ducing large numbers of simple,
medium capacity trucks, and a
trickle of handsome luxury pas
senger cars.

Taxes May Take All
Bui $25,000 of Million
For Churchill Memoirs
By H. J. J. Sorgint
North American N»wipeper Alllane·
LONDON, April 28. — Winston
Churchill's war memoirs are ex
pected to earn him $1,000,000 for
I the serial rights in North America
alone, but he might expect to keep
only $25,000 of it after taxes.
A million dollars at present ex
change equals £250,000. Assum
ing that Mr. Churchill's book
will appear in six volumes over three
years and that payment will be
made either yearly or half yearly,
that would mean he would receive
ifrom North America alone a pay
ement of more than 83,000 pounds a
year for three years.
Whatever the ingenuity of Mr.
Churchill's financial advisers might
be, I have it on very good authority
that those payments will be con
I sidered in England for taxation
'purposes as income and would be
taxed at 19 shillings and 6 pence
in the pound for income tax and
surtax. This would leave Mr.
Churchill with £6,250 or $25,000 of
the $1,000,000 derived from sale to
newspapers and magazines in North
America. British revenue will take
the remaining $975,000.
Furthermore, any subsequent sale
elsewhere—in England, in the Brit
ish Commonwealth or in Europe—
would be taxable at 19 shillings and
6 pence—without the allowances!
computed in the £6,250 left from
the American sale.
One result of this is that the·
man who was Prime Minister of
England in what the world has j
agreed to call "England's finest |
hour" and whose mastery of thei
English tongue makes him almost;
as great a literary figure as he was
a war leader, works for a rémunéra- j
tion of which every £1 produces 6
pence (12% cents) for himself, and I
19 shillings and 6 pence ($3.88) for|
a labor government which, if Mr. j
Churchill is to be believed—and
many do—is bringing his country to
Veterans Advised by VA
On Lapsing Gi Insurance
Veterans throughout the Nation
are reinstating lapsed National Serv
ice Life Insurance policies, but some,
without intending to do so, are per
mitting them to expire again, the
Veterans' Administration disclosed
today. „
A veteran, to rein teste his term
insurance, needs to do no more than
give satisfactory evidence of good
health and pay two monthly prem
iums, VA officials explained.
One month's premium.^ which the
veteran must pay at reinstatement,
it was explained, is for the one
month grace period when his policy
lapsed, during which he had insur
ance coverage but for which he did
not pay. The other is for the month
of reinstatement.
Any veteran who is uncertain of
the effective date of his policy
should continue payments at least
every 30 days to make sure to keep
within the grace period.
Evidence of good health for policy
reinstatement may be given until
August 1 by the \ eteran's own certi
fication that he is in as good health
as the day his insurance lapsed.

scum or streaky film to
polish away. Pots and pans
cleaned quicker, for Vel
