SOVIETS IN RUSSIA
I S I
By Carl D. Groat
(United Press Correspondent)
'Berlin, June 28 (By Mail.)The
^arrlman of Russia is an ex-Amer
ican. His name is Benjamin M.
8verdloff. He is a railway engineer
ing expert, and a good one, accord
ing to Dr. Li. Haden Guest, secretary
of tne British Labor commission to
Russia. .!T%,'- -.fWi'-'f*'5
Guest, wlu says that the soviet
system is "westernizing Russia along
American trust lines," holds Sverd
loff to be a railroad trust chieftain
and organizer of the first water-p
leader of one of several big "trusts"
ein'g developed under the soviet regi
me. In an interview, Guest, en route
nome from Russia, said:
"Sverdloff is an able, liberal mind
ed man. Nominally Trosky has con
trol of the railway system of Russia,
but actually Sverdloff is .the.control
ler. Trosky is the military command
er. The world may regard him as a
literary dreamer but he has shaken
off that shell, and is a real military
commander.
"I travelled over lines which Sverd
loff had rebuilt in a year. They were
a heap of ruins then. He is doing
this work well and is reorganizing
the Russian shipping also. Of course,
to complete his task, he must have
locomotives and spare- parts' for re
pair of the old engines."
Sverdloff, according to Dr. Guest,
typifies the spirit behind the ruling
classand he calls it ruling class de
spite the alleged proletarian charac
ter of the regime. He is western In
ills thoughts and meth'ods. And there
are plenty of others of the same type
who are dragging Russia out of the
rut of the past at least on the matter
of thought and organization, says
the doctor.
This development of "westerniza
tion" is going to be of vast benefit
to the nation, whether sovietism re
mains as it is, or Is altered.
Incidentally, Guest characterizes
Lenin as a "fanatis" on the sense of
being fanatically loyal' to his ideas
and convicted that it is a "cure-all."
He is inclined to tbe narrow, though
Jiiiiiinii^iiuimiliiiiimwiHHm
"all in all, a steat man," says Guest,
Some Russians think the "Revo
lution" will hit America abojut next
tpring, Guest hazarded.
"Russia, shut off from normal
world intercourse for so long, is full
of fanastic ideas about the rest of the
world," he said. Leaders discussed
with me, in all seriousness, the pros
pects of the 'revolution' in America.Jtbe
They spectulated as to
would happen this fall or next spring.
I couldn't argue with them much,
but told them a few things to show
the remotness ol*a revolution in Am
ericand they finally reached the
conclusion, again in all seriousness
that the revolution wouldn't come be
fore -spring ').'season.
He paused a added:
"And I- guesminutesandbit that' a early,
too, though I do believe
would have such a revolution before
England would." I
GONVICK
A co-operative institution, operated
cooperatively, with good manage
ment, can have but one resulta suc
cessful career^ This at least has
been the experience of the Farmers
Cooperative Grain and Produce asso
ciation of Gonvick which has just
closed another business year.
While the volume of business fell
short of that transacted in 1918, a
year of bumper crops, yet it was
an exceptionally good year forshare
holders and patrons of the institu
tion. The good result Is attributed
to the profit-sharing plan adopted in
July, 1919. Under this plan share
holders received a premium of tl,
253.61 or 4 cents in return for every
bushel of grain delivered at the ele
vator during the year. Non-share
holders received- 1704.49 or 2 cents
back on every bushel of grain
brought to the Institution, accord
ing to the report of the secretary sub
mitted at the annual meeting of the
associationheld recently in this vil
lage- In addition to these profits the
association declared an 8 per- cent
dividend on capital stock.
So far as known' the Gonvick firm
is the only concern of its kind oper
ating under the profit sharing system
in this-section of the state'and its
officers are confident that next year's
business will' show a big increase
over the past 'twelve mouths, mean
ing* bigger profits for those who'mar
ket their grain in Gonvick.
For the ensuing year the associa
tion named a strong directorate com
posed of the following men well
known and of good standing in the
community: .D. 'D.rBrie^Er^CK WId
seth, J. E. Pearson, Ole E.: Oien, i
A1. Anderson, A. E. Nelson and-P. A.
Norquist.' These men met recently
and from among their membership
selected a set of officers as follows:
President, J. Al. Anderson, Vice-pres
ident. J. E. Pearson Treasurer, Da
vid Erie Secretary, Prank A. Nor
quist. The board re-engaged Jas. C.
