In 1020 the Idgeskoni received $72,000 from the American Joint I>i-S --lrihution Coinmittte ami 100.000 gold roubles, or approximately $50,000 from the People's Coflimlssinriot for Social Aid.

In addi tion to the above mentiontd sum re ceived rom the one Government com inislarnt, tlio Idgesko was granted free trnnsiHirtation facilities for all its personnel and aterials. and much total and raw materials, hut tht value of these is nowhere ascertainable, owing to the fact* that under the old economic system no correct accounts of such disbursements in kind were kept by the Government because the beneficiary was not expected to rec ompense the Government.
