Transcript " 1. A great quantity of commodities far in excess of the needs of the grain purchase operations, was sent into the most important grain districts; " 2. In one grain district, large quantities of goods were sent which caused an accumulation, whilst at other points too few goods were sent. In other words, whilst certain districts were flooded with goods, an impression of shortage was created; " 3. The choice of the goods sent was never in accordance with the character of the needs of the districts in question ; " 4.

Further, incomplete collections were sent out and collections not in accordance with the needs of the working population in the respective district. The districts are used to leather goods and footwear from a certain area, or even from a certain factory, and they do not willingly take articles from other centres or other factories. " The main principle of the sabotage work in any given case—in drawing-up the distributive plans on the basis of the transfer of goods from one district to another, by replacing the production of local industry by the pro- 54
