Transcript consolidation of the agricultural artel means the consolidation of the principal form of the collective farming movement in present conditions. Last year, when the swing in the direction of mass collectivisation began in the autumn, the lowest form of collective farm, i.e., the society for jointly tilling the soil, developed particularly rapidly. Lately the predominance is visibly on the side of the artel. The proportion of communes amongst the general mass of collective farms cannot as yet be very large, in the present stage of the collective movement. The forms and methods of collective farming are extremely varied. At the Tenth Plenum of the E.C.C.I, we noted the importance of machine and tractor depots for the collectivisation movement. But in practice the anticipations of that time about the rate of development of machine and tractor depots have been left far behind. These depots are now organised by a special state and co-operative body, the Tractorocentre. This body selects the most important agricultural districts and there organises, with the assistance of local co-operative organisations, special depots equipped with dozens of tractors and suitable agricultural machines. These machine and tractor depots sign agreements with collective farms, to plough their fields and gather in the harvest with the help of their tractors and agricultural machines. The contract provides for the obligation on the part of the collective farms to carry out all necessary agricultural works with their own labour, to maintain the machine and tractor depots, and to acquire them out of their own resources in three years. The depot receives a definite proportion of the harvest—from one-quarter to one-third—as payment for their work. These machine and tractor depots, which began on the local initiative of the Shevchenko soviet farm in the Ukraine, have rapidly won tremendous popularity amongst the peasantry. In the spring of 1930 the Tractorocentre is organising 162 machine and tractor depots, wdiich will till an area of 3,750,000 hectares. By the autumn of 1930 the Tractorocentre proposes to organise 237 depots. Apart from this, the agricultural co-operative societies propose themselves to organise, in the spring of this year, a large number of machine and tractor depots and tractor columns. The tractor column, consisting of several dozen tractors, does not represent a fully-developed organisation, and constitutes the embryo and incomplete form of the machine and tractor depot. The machine and tractor depots are becoming centres of mass collectivisation. They possess the necessary tractors and machines, they organise the essential technical basis, they build up a skeleton force of skilled workmen, and at the same time they develop their work with the active participation of the peasant co-operators. Thus they are destined to be one of the decisive '4
