Transcript all those employees of the Soviet, State and co-operative apparatus whose roots were fixed in the past and who were quickly being replaced by the new pro-Soviet forces. " The progressive cleansing of the Soviet apparatus had put these elements into such a situation that they represented extremely favourable material for recruiting for the R.S.D.L.P. Similarly favourable material was represented by the urban trading petty-bourgeoisie. In connection with these prospects, the question was raised at the plenary session whether it would not be advisable to alter the name of the party and to exclude the word * labour.' However, the question of the name of the party was left open, chiefly in view of the connections of the organisation with the international movement under the Second (Labour and Socialist) International. ..." (Statement of December 4th, 1930.) In this connection, the plenary session gave concrete instructions concerning the nature of the work to be carried out. Salkind declared : " Every party group was to strive to carry out sabotage in one form or another, apart from the normal party work. To this end, the subordinate party groups were to be formed according to institutions. The next step which resulted from this organisational form was the necessity for the establishment of close connections with the clubs, groups, etc., of the sabotage organisations. The question of sabotage activity was to be regarded as of such first rate importance in the work of the groups that, if necessary, they could be given the right to draw specialists into the group for the discussion and preparation of the sabotage work. The connection between the various groups was not to be territorial, but according to the principle of co-operation in the sabotage work. . . . " The organisation and re-organisation of the party groups on this basis in Moscow was handed over to Gromann for the State Planning Commission, to Sokolovsky for the Supreme Economic Council, to Salkind for the People's Commissariat for Trade, to Petunin for Centrosoyus (Central Co-operative Association), to Sher for the State Bank of the S.U., and to Minz for the People's Commissariat for Labour. This committee of five, or Presidium, was instructed to take energetic measures for the formation of district committees, whereby it was to send special representatives to the various districts and to utilise the old connections. ..." 26
