The Soviet Sports' Club played an important role in educating the youth of hai. The youth showed their real spirit during the repatriation. Though all the active members of the Soviet 1lub on tiayside have left and all the activities hav*sen discontinued for the ,ast four months, the Club hau now rerrurnecl its duties. Great significative should be attached to the"dclegatesz union". It should be stratgthened and doped, as it aids in the unity of our colony and helps to attract. more aeabexs into the Association. The report read by V.G. Rudakov, director of the "f Hance-p ann i g" department, was as follows: "The debts of the Association are wt very large.. If we examine the books of t.hw hsscciutcn from 1 May up tithe 31 December 3-94?, it appears that the Association has amid off almost all its debts. The Soviet coalmW helped a great deal. It responded to the .-umems of the executive eaamittownd collected .Honey for the needs of the c!lcny. The fund which has been g%thered for these purposes amount, to two and a half billion dollars. Th..s fund enabled the Association to pay off the debts Incurred in building the iovi et Sports' Cl -ab in 1946 and the beginning of 1947. The general budget of the Association consists of two parts: the ""ordi.larv budget", which in concerned with current expenses and the"apeci-al budget", which is con-. ce?ne3 with special expenaea of the Association such as expenses incurred in connection with the repatriation, construction cork, repair work, etc. The membership fees and the profits tmdertWdng from the various sections and organizations of the Association (i- of y. clinic and the pharmacy) are amounted for in customary budget. The total exp'r-see "or the past year amounted to CNC$8,632,000 a000. with the cur: ant. cool anscc -.n CNC$5,552,000,000. The greater part of the "current expenses" was spent on the clubs,. This is natural, as much as most of the activities are conducted at the club. because of the repatriation, the club had a CNM500,000,000 deficit. 14.8 of the z oney was spent on the school. The "finance--planning" cor~au i- seion once proposed to make the school self-supporting, but it, was decided to discuss and solve this problem dnrirag the present meeting. The school can become self -supporting in two ways : 1) Charge tuition fees; 2) Have the "economy" (finannc&) committee of the school raise money by means of special projects. The various departments of the Association also spend a great deal of money, large suers being spent by the social welfare department. A number of measures were taken to reduce the expenses of the Association. The Executive Committee decreased the nwnber of paid employees by 6C%. All the members of the executive cdsaittrrefused to accept any renumeration for their services. The nernbr;r, ship fees altogether equal C14C41,445,000:000. hS T KC T Is D Approved For Release 204L1 2tRtc I 82-00457ROO 1400900004-7 Approved For Release 2CR'EIS I(IP82-00457R00140 CERMAL MW-?JU= A In caoalusion, Radakov made a general review of the financial situation.

A pharmacy, two dental offices and a phy'siotharapy laboratory, comprise the polyclinic , The pharmacy is filled with medicine.
