Transcript sowing campaign, we shall be able to carry out the task of extending the area sown by 10-15 per cent. This alone would mean a great victory on the agricultural front, and would consolidate the socialist reconstruction of agriculture in the highest degree. In order to organise the sowing campaign, the Party is sending a large number of people into the villages. Thousands of responsible Party workers are now being sent into the districts, not to speak of tens of thousands of advanced non-Party workers. A special mobilisation of agricultural experts is taking place. The supply of literature and the treatment of problems of the sowing campaign in our press have been greatly extended. The spring sowing campaign is a test of collectivisation and a test of the whole work of the Party in the villages. We attribute tremendous importance to this work. We have set before ourselves the objective of smashing at all costs the prophecies of our enemies abroad who foretell a famine for our country. We believe that our enemy will once again prove mistaken, while collectivisation will achieve its decisive victor}. This is how matters stand with the first and most important task of the present moment. 2. THE PROBLEM OF PERSONNEL. Passing to the question of personnel : at the present stage of socialist construction this problem is an outstanding one. Our weakest spot lies here. The lack of experienced workers makes itself felt literally in all branches of our constructive work, and makes this problem exceptionally acute. The growth of our cadres up to the present time lags far behind the growth of national economy. It is for this reason that of late we have had so frequently to have recourse to all kinds of mobilisations—for the technical colleges and the collective farms, for local work and the central government institutions. First and foremost, this affects the communists, but mobilisations of non-party experts also (engineers, agronomists, doctors, etc) are becoming more and more frequent. The need for workers, particularly for technical experts, is growing. The problem of personnel can be divided into two parts—the treatment of the old cadres and the preparation of the new. Our main cadres still consist of the old scientists and technical experts. The influx of new really proletarian experts is still very insignificant. Hence the problem of the proper distribution and employment of the old cadres had, and still has, exceptional importance. It is not merely an economic, but a profoundly political problem. The proper fitting in of the old expert forces into the machinery of socialist construction is a very complicated task and, 37
