Transcript type. The "Gigant" not only carried out its full programme, but exceeded it, while the cost of production turned out to be much lower than was anticipated : a result of great importance, not only for the soviet farm movement, but also for the work of collectivisation. Soviet farms of this type are model organisations of large-scale socialist agriculture, and give a practical object lesson of the great advantages of such socialist organisation. The formation of soviet farms in the sugar industry has made considerable progress, and similarly in the cotton-bearing districts. New centres for special soviet estates for cattle and sheep farming have been set up. Apart from these new undertakings, we are continuing to develop as rapidly as possible the old soviet farms. In dimensions these are much smaller than the new farms, but they are much more numerous, and fall within territories which are agriculturally much more favourable. These facts show how rapidly the building of soviet farms is developing. The soviet government is determined to continue the development of these farms, and is convinced that models of large- scale socialist agriculture can be, and will be, set in this way before the eyes of the millions of peasantry who have entered the collective farms. I should also mention that recently in some districts relations have been established between the soviet farms and the surrounding collective farms, amalgamations being created under the leadership of the soviet farm. There is a great future before this form of development of socialist agriculture, given the necessary attention by the soviet farms themselves. Exceptionally important in this connection is the problem of tractors, combines and agricultural power stations. This year the output of agricultural machinery will be nearly doubled. Next year the plan provides for a further doubling again. The steps taken to enlarge tractor and combine production are worthy of particular attention. Part of the "Red Putilov" works has been transformed into an independent tractor works, while this year a large tractor works is being completed at Stalingrad; in addition, two new gigantic tractor works are being commenced this year in the Urals and the Ukraine. This autumn we shall have in the fields of the U.S.S.R. tractors whose aggregate power will be equivalent to that of nearly 100,000 tractors of the Fordson type. As yet imported machinery represents a considerable proportion of the whole ; but next year the number of tractors produced in soviet works will begin to grow rapidly. Furthermore, the organisation of two very large combine works has begin in Northern Caucasus and Ukraine. Thus it will be seen that the soviet government, led by the Party, has taken drastic 16
