Transcript main question is, to what extent will the socialised section of agriculture deal adequately with its problems. This is the economic aspect. As we are speaking of the supply of the main foodstuffs to the towns, it will be easy to understand the political importance also of the spring sowing campaign. But a correct picture of the political importance of the campaign depends upon realisation of what is involved in the practical application of the policy of liquidating the kulaks as a class. Mass collectivisation, embracing the overwhelming majority of the poor and middle peasant farms, is bound to be accompanied by expropriation of the kulaks. The Party watchword of liquidating the kulaks as a class in the principal agricultural districts is now being effected by practical measures applied by the peasant masses with the support and under the leadership of the proletarian dictatorship. Until quite recently there existed in the Soviet LInion about 25,000,000 individual peasant farms, of which 1.2 to 1.3 millions were kulak farms. With their families the kulak section represent a population of six or seven millions. These figures alone show that the drastic changes now taking place involve many difficulties. The approach of the spring sowing campaign facilitates the speeding up of the main social and political changes in the villages. The rate of collectivisation has been rapidly increasing of late, and this was bound to be accompanied by an acute sharpening of the class struggle in the villages. In spite of the fact that the overwhelming mass of the peasantry are intensely hostile to the kulaks, the latter continue to try to resist. In its turn this leads to a more severe struggle and the hastening of the process of expropriation. We are living at a time when the kulaks are undergoing a crushing blow. Naturally the application of this watchword necessitates new practical measures on the part of the machinery of the proletarian dictatorship. Without dealing in detail with these measures, I will only say that the approach of the sowing campaign necessitates the maximum of systematic organisation in carrving them through. Mass collectivisation has created in the countryside conditions whicli are totally different from those previously prevailing. To-day, the principal question in the sowing campaign is that of the socialised sector. The preparations for the sowing campaign in the collective farms throws great responsibilities, not only on the leadership of the collective farms, but on all our organisations. Without the most concentrated effort we cannot succeed in extending the area sown and increasing- the harvest. The first tasks in this campaign are the creation of adequate seed reserves and the repairing of agricultural machinery. The Partv has devoted great attention to this in recent weeks. The 35
