Transcript progress achieved in carrying out these tasks is reflected in systematic bulletins published in our press. We consider the sowing campaign, no less than the struggle to carry out the industrial and financial plan, a most important front of socialist construction, necessitating the mobilisation of tremendous forces of the working class and peasantry, and the systematic leadership of the Party. As a result, we already have fairly important succsses in respect of the seed supply : according to the People's Commissariat for Agriculture of the U.S.S.R., over 80 per cent, of the plan has been completed, and we have every reason to believe that in the near future the full programme will be carried out. The districts with a bad harvest will be assisted out of the state reserves. Mailers are not quite so favourable as regards the repair of agricultural machinery and tractors, in which we are still lagging behind. Hut here, too, great efforts have been made recent lv. In the southern areas we have already reached a new stage in the sowing campaign, the organisation of the sowing itself. To imagine that this takes place "spontaneously" means to underestimate the responsibilities devolving upon us. The approaching sowing campaign definitely imposes upon us the task of organising the actual sowing in bolshevik fashion. We must prepare the collective farms for an organised entry into the fields. We have to do a very great deal, during the days and weeks which remain, in respect of the organisation of labour during the sowing campaign. In this we have a very difficult problem since we are extremely badly prepared. Nevertheless, we believe we can organise a real bolshevik sowing. Our experience last year in the Khopersky district (whollv col- lectivised) on the Lower Volga, whatever its deficiencies, has convinced us of the possibility of successfully carrying through the sowing campaign this year. The autumn campaign in that district was exceptionally successful. The collective ploughing in the autumn for the spring sowings exceeded the area of the previous year by 150-200 per cent. To take another example, in the same district, and in several others of the Volga region, the peasants all this winter have carried out undertakings which have never been thought of on such a scale before. Over a vast territory of about 1,000,000 hectares in the Lower Volga, mass preparations for artificial retention of snow in the fields were made; special ploughing of the snow, building of snow walls, etc. Despite the elementary character of this work, it is of the greatest importance in fighting drought, while its execution on such a vast scale is within the powers of only a collectivised countryside. Thus if we in real bolshevik fashion prepare and organise the 36
