  §  Dramatis Personae Ivan Pavlovich Nikanorov (m), a worker from Nizhne-Uralsk; _____ (m),  seminar leader from the Association of workers of the town and country; Klavdiia Petrovna Shirokikh (f), a mechanic from the “Dawn” collective farm.

  §  Synopsis “One is allowed to fight for the truth! This is the conclusion reached by exemplary workers Ivan Pavlovich Nikanorovÿ, a worker from Nizhne-Ural'sk, and Klavdiia Petrovna Shirokikh, a mechanic from the ‘Dawn’ collective farm. What have they got to lose? A place at the factory bench and a seat on the combine harvester. ‘All the more so, as they already have all possible material advantages’, reason Ivan Pavlovich and Klavdiia Petrovna, who have been left alone for too long together rather carelessly by a seminar leader from the Association of workers of the town and country. Ah, this is going to bring about so many good things! . . . The people will feel that they are in charge, they will give up drinking and start to work properly! And the heroes of our story will find their private lives put in order. It is, of course, easier to fight injustice together. It’s just a pity that the seminar leader came back and explained to them what what is meant by correct criticism.”
