has troubles By WILLIAM DICKINSON JR GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Agriculture has long been considered the Achilles heel of the Soviet economy Now it would appear that a weakness has developed in the economys industrial foot as well The official announcement of the forthcoming plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the US SR simply stated that Premier Khrushchevs principal report will vbe devoted to improving party control over the manage ment of the Soviet economy So viet sources indicate privately that the measures for reform of industrial management and construction will border on the sensational No great changes are anticipated in the agricul tural sector because it was re organized at the last Central Committee meeting in March Preparations for the new ses sion coincide with admissions in the Soviet press that 47000 workers walked off their jobs in the first six months of this year in the Kemerovo area of central Siberia Administrative bungling low wages and un satisfactory living conditions were blamed The newspaper Sovetskaya Rossiya Soviet Russia recent ly told how a big fruit canning factory was built inthe Siberian town of Yurga When it was ready to go into operation of ficials suddenly realized that the only fruit grown in their area was to be found in a few private garden plots The plant had to be dismantled and hauled 1500 miles to sunny Krasnodar in the fruitgrowing area of the northern Caucasus Still unverified by the Soviet press are reports reaching the West that a number of Soviet workers were killed during a riot in tie Kemerovo area last summer The unrest was en gendered by Khruihchevs an nouncement that meat and but ter prices were being raised 30 per cent and by an increase of work norms at one factory A typical Communist antidote for present industrial shortcom ings would be to put the fac tories more tightly under the thurtb of party and state Per haps significantly the partys ideological journal Kommuhist recently upbraided those who believe that profit incentives and virtual plant autonomy are the best means of spurring pro duction And Sovetskaya Ros siya commented that It makes one sad to see how this process of growth is artificially blocked by the local policy and poor management of certain local leaders Khrushchev n most certainly not without blame for the pres ent difficulties He was party chief in 1957 when in an attempt to reduce red tap industrial management was partly decen tralized and put in the hands of 105 regional economic councils The move backfired when regional officials were found to be embezzling invest ment funds stealing raw ma terials and failing to cooperate with other regions He was premier in mid1960 when still more agencies were set up between the regional councils and the State Planning Committee in Moscow to keep closer check on local perform ance Factory managers com plain that this move only in troduced more bureaucratic bungling Khrushchevs vow to match Americas industrial output by 1970 is no longer realistic and added strain has been put on hie control in Rusia ARTHUR V DAVIS Millionaire Davis is dead
