Khrushchev Outlines New Plan for Soviet Eco


MOSCOW (P)-Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev directed
a vast new party and industrial reorganization in the Soviet
Union yesterday, and told party leaders to copy from capitalism,
if they Must, to increase farm and factory production.
Khrushchev disclosed his plan to the Communist Party Central
committee. He outlined a countrywide, industrial and party or-
ganization reaching down to the ranks of the 10 million Com-
munists he said are the "ruling party" in the Soviet Union.
To the farming industry, Khrushchev promised some much
needed tractors and fertilizer, but not necessarily in the im-
mediate future. The main supply of government money, he said,
will continue to go to heavy industry, which supplies military
hardware, and a little more, but not much, to the consumer goods
Russian Blessing
Near the end of his speech, Khrushchev gave a mild blessing
to certain Soviet economists and factory managers who for months
have argued for a sort of profit system in factories. The aim is

to give an incentive both to the factory manager and to the
workers to produce more and better goods faster.
"Under the socialist system of economy," he continued, "profit
as an economic category does not have the social meaning which
characterizes it in the capitalistic society. Our industry manu-
factures goods not to obtain a profit, but because they are needed
by the entire society. Instead of condemning the idea, he said,
in effect, try something along that line in certain areas.
But he added that Soviet industry should also adopt features
of the capitalist system where research and designing are made
a part of every industry. To block what he described as an
excessive labor turnover in some areas, he recommended legisla-
tion to determine where a worker's personal interest conflicted
with state interest.
Low Pay
His comment followed reports from some areas that thousands
of workers had quit their jobs because of low pay and unsatis-
factory working conditions.

The party reorganization appeared the most far-reaching
shakeup since that of 1957 when Khrushchev defeated the so-
called "antiparty group." His directives set up two powerful
party branches, one in charge of agriculture, one overseeing indus-
trial production. The same type of reorganization will go on down
through individual USSR Republics, thence to regional parties
and so on, until there is a vertical "top-to-bottom type of organiza-
tion for party, industry and agriculture.
Decrease Councils
In industry, the number of economic councils will be cut,
and the size of economic councils will be increased. These councils
were created in 1957 to help decentralize the government bureau-
cracy and create regional initiative. In the Russian republic, biggest
of the 15 Soviet states, the number of councils is cut from 67
to less than 25; in the Ukraine; from 14 to seven.
Old organizational forms, Khrushchev told the committee,
"are becoming a drag on guidance of production," and "therefore
we must take radical measures to insure more concrete and

systematic guidance of all branches of production by party or-
Practically every phase of the economy, including even scien-
tific research and designing will follow the same vertical pattern
of organization, Khrushchev disclosed. The advances of this sort
or organization, he said, were shown by the experience of the
military in its achievement of top efficiency. Such a system had
been developed in capitalist countries, Khrushchev said, and then
Once Upon A Time ...
"There was a time-I mean the period of the personality cult
-when the idea was sedulously fostered that everything that is
ours is unreservedly ideal and everything that is foreign is un-
reservedly bad.
Khrushchev also included the European Communist countries
in his future economic plans. He said a tighter organization was
needed of the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance because
the EuropeanCommon Market in the West was "directed at the
growing peaceful system of Socialism."

NEW DELHI (Ak)-Driving Communist Chinese forces crum-
bled Indian defenses in the Se Pass sector of the Himalayan
front yesterday and lanced to a point only 25 miles from the
populous plains of Assam.
Red battalions, 20,000 strong, outflanked and overran
defenses of the 13,156-foot pass-which Indian frontline
troops/had considered impregnable-and then captured Bom-
dila, another mountain position 60 miles to the southeast,
where the Indians had hoped to make a stand.
Meanwhile, in Peiping, Red China's Premier Chou En-
Lai was quoted as saying that, far from being near an end,
the India-China conflict will
grow in scale.

Void Limit
On Funds
By The Associated Press
LANSING - Attorney General
Frank Kelley ruled yesterday that
a legislative restriction on appro-
priations for Michigan State Uni-
versity is unconstitutional and
Kelley issued his opinion in re-
sponse to a request from Leland
Carr, Jr., attorney for MSU.
The query stemmed from action
by the Legislature this year in
which MSU's entire appropriation
was granted only upon the condi-
tion that. none of the money be
used to continue a controversial
Labor Relations Center.
Kelly said:
"Where the Legislature condi-
tions the entire general appropria-
tion for Michigan State University
upon the fact that no portion of
the appropriation shall be used to
maintain or continue the Indus-
tries and Labor Relations Center
or any center or school of a sim-
ilar nature, such a condition is
unconstitutional .' ."
Kelley pointed out that the state
constitution vests exclusive con-
trol of the general fund of the
university in the governing body-
the trustees.
Citing an earlier case, Kelley
said that the State Supreme Court
recognized the authority of the
Legislature to make appropriations
for specific objects attatch law-
ful conditions which would be
binding upon the appropriation.
"Nevertheless," Kelley added,
"the authority of the Legislature
does not encompass general funds
appropriated for general purposes
of the university in that the peo-
ple had reposed exclusive control
and direction over such funds in
the governing body of the univer-
The Industry and Labor Rela-
tions Center was the subject of a
Senate investigation after charges
were aired that it was pro-labor.
Kelley said that the Legisla-
ture's action demands -that the
MSU trustees abdicate authority
to manage and control MSU in re-
turn for the appropriation.
The Legislature could impose
oher conditions of a similar na-
trol of the university from its
constitutionally designated govern-
ing body."
