Issue ten features war workers embracing an opportunity to perform ‘Peter and the Wolf’ for colleagues in a factory canteen, followed by coverage of a British newspaper published in Moscow. At another factory, workers manufacture jettisonable fuel or ‘drop tanks’, whilst out in the fields a group of mechanics volunteers their time to help bring in the harvest.
