Transcript I. THE SOWING CAMPAIGN'. hirst on the order of the day at present is the spring sowing campaign. Its importance is truly decisive, and this is recognised by all those whom we can justly reckon amongst the most far- seeing enemies of the U.S.S.R. Thus the "Observer,"'the leading British conservative newspaper, writing on February 2nd on such facts as the lack of tractors, the slaughtering of cattle and the sale or consumption of seeds intended for the sowing, states: "These are perhaps the principal obstacles to the success of the spring planting and the decisive harvest which will follow it. If they are overcome, and the ambitious projects for extending the planted acreage and increasing the yield per acre are realised, the Russian revolution will have solved its basic contradiction of building up socialism in a peasant country . . . The tremendous significance of the issues at stake is obvious. That is why all eyes in Russia are turned towards the 'agrarian front,' where a struggle which will ultimately loom larger in history than nine- tenths of the so-called decisive battles of the world is now being fought out. " The British conservative newspaper understands very well the importance of the extension of the area sown, and the increasing of the harvest in the U.S.S.R. just in the present year. The outcome of the agricultural campaign decides a great deal in the whole fabric of socialist construction. Its victory means the victory of collectivisation and the crushing of the kulaks as a class. It will be a decisive victory for socialist construction in our country. Since more than half of all the peasant households have entered the collective farms, and have begun to carry out in practice the policy of liquidating the kulaks as a class, the grain and food supply in general of the towns becomes directly dependent upon the socialised sector of agriculture. Up to last vear this sector was responsible for a very small percentage of the grain output. Aboul three-quarters of grain marketed came from the individual poor and middle peasant farms. In addition, one-fifth came from the kulak farms, thus occupying a very substantial place in the grain supply. In respect of other foodstuffs, such as meat and butter, the part played by the kulak farms was even more important. This year there is a radical change in the relationship between the various social sectors in agriculture. The role of the kulak farms falls sharply. Undoubtedly the individual sector still retains considerable importance, particularly in some of the grain districts where a large part of the poor and middle peasants have not yet been brought into collective farms. However, the supply of grain and other foodstuffs will now depend first and foremost on the collective farms, together with the soviet farms. Thus the 34
