    Background: The baker's trade is one of the most ancient trades. But let us see what is left of this hoary trade in 1966.

    The yeast shop of Moscow mechanized bakery No.5. We see automatic dosers, automatic controllers, automatic heaters and automatic regulators.

    The only thing left untouched from the baker's trade is the sourish smell that people know and love so well. It tickles one nostrils and makes one feel hungry.

    No human hand touches the dough. But what is this? A hand only a mechanized one. The hand copies the baker's movements. ??? bit of dough is pretty heavy. But the mechanical hand plays ??? the dough like with a toy.

    This mechanized bakery, designed by Engineer Marsakow, was built thirty-five years ago. Since then many changes have taken place in bakery technology and production. The main principle of Marsakov's bakery -- its circular conveyor, however, has remained. All the shops have circular conveyors.

    This principle today is widely applied in the Soviet Union and abroad.

    Bakers of 88 countries have visited the Moscow bakery. They include a delegation of the International Bakers' Association. Following the visit, the president of the Association Mr. William Bourset wrote a letter to the bakery highly assessing its work.

    People need fresh bread every day. This is why the bakery works all round the clock. Muscovites eat 2,500 tons of break daily. This bakery, directed by its so-called chief baker Alexander Novoselov, puts out 200 tons a day.

    Mr. Novoselov has worked at the bakery ever since it went into operation. A born baker, he sincerely rejoices at this year's bumper grain crops. He also rejoices at the satisfaction that the Moscow public gets from the bakery's products.

    We have brought you an account of one of Moscow's big bakeries.
