WOOD'S - The Sportings Goods Man MILLIONS UNDER BOLSHEVIST PAY and Seven SlilHon on Civil Tay Roll 7,000.000 in Army To Cut Education. MOSCOW, Dec. l"i (By a staff corre spondent of The Associated Press). There ore 7.000.000 on the Russian gov ernment's, civil payroll, says a report just made -by Yourvy Larin, the former Social Revolutionist leader and chair man of it committee selected by the cen tral government to reduce the number of institutions mipiorted by the government and to 'eliminate unnecessary bureaus. Karl Itadek. : Bolshe-vlst-leader, stated in recent article that tm strength of the Soviet army is ;,01H,UH); men Ihe size of the navj is not .know a. Granting that the ' figures of Radek and Larin' are correct the Bolshevist gov ernment has .at least 12.000.000 persons n its civil and military payrolls, or one person out of every 10 in what constitutes Soviet Russia. J n the civil-list 2.! 0,000 persons are engaged in industries, according to J.:i riu's statement, and l,fi0,0O0 are - in transport service. J. lie employs in gov ernment olhces and institutions number 2,100,000. Timber work and farm work under government control employ 4XU00. Laiin says the most sweeping reduc tions will be made in the department of education which is headed bv Luuach- arsky and has 1,200,1 MM) employes. At least one-third of these will be dis charged. Teachers in the ordinary schools wdl be unaffected, but Larin savs his commission intends to lop off all sorts of museums, dramatic academies, danc ing studios and various side institutions which, he declares, are sapping the life from the educational system and squan dering money which should be devoted to strengthening free schools and paying better salaries to teachers of ordinary subjects. By reducing the number of employes on public payrolls, Larin says it will be the purpose of his commission to afford more food for the workers in essential in dustries which have starved to support superfluous and faddish institutions.
