Transcript " When it became known from the letter of the foreign delegation that the latter had altered its attitude towards intervention and now considered the latter necessary, and that, further, there was a chance of a comparatively near intervention (by France and Poland), then the All- Union Bureau also recognised that intervention was a necessary weapon in the struggle against the dictatorship of the proletariat and the Soviet power, despite the cordon which was actually closing around the Soviet Union. . . ." The accused Salkind makes a no less important statement on the organisational questions which were dealt with previously by the first plenary session of the All-Union Bureau. It is interesting to note that he refers in this connection to Sher, who in his statement concerning the questions discussed by the plenary session makes no mention of his own report.

The working masses were so completely under the influence and subject to the authority of the C.P.S.U. that there was no room for any hopes in this connection. The second view was that in the working masses there was a section which was not proletarian although the members of this section occupied the position of workers. " This section was composed of the village bourgeoisie, the urban tradesmen, in some cases also commercial employees who in their search for employment were compelled to go into the factories as workers. The R.S.D.L.P. could reckon on these elements. Finally the plenary session came to the conclusion that the main social basis on which the R.S.D.L.P. could reckon at the moment was composed of the declassed petty-bourgeoisie, and above 25
