Transcript or with the saboteurs to counter-revolution—this is the question that faces the old cadres of intellectuals. We must help them to choose their path, we must intensify our work of re-educating the main body of these cadres and help them to pass from neutrality to conscious support of the policy of the proletariat. We must give support to that frame of mind amongst the experts which facilitates the coming together of the intellectuals with the working class, and ensure their more active participation in the building of socialism. The policy of drawing into greater activity elements from amongst old experts which are politically akin to the proletariat is particularly important just now. While systematically exposing the sabotage and bringing out its counter-revolutionary class significance, it is essential to redouble our attention to, and care for, the main body of engineering and technical personnel. We can already perceive a definite break in its attitude towards socialist construction. Evidence of this is a number of mass demonstrations of experts in Moscow and Leningrad, which have taken place around the watchwords of fighting sabotage and active participation in the building of socialism. Other evidence is the growing number of cases of exceptional loyalty to their work, and what must be frankly called labour heroism of some of the engineers and technicians in our undertakings. Lastly, amongst the advanced section of the soviet intellectuals, there has considerablv increased the movement to join the C.P.S.U. The lack of experts obliges us to draw on the scientific and technically skilled workers whom we can get from abroad. By the end of last year there were already working in the factories of the U.S.S.R. 850 specially employed foreign experts and 550 skilled workers. Most of these came from Germany. The recruiting of new workers from Germany, and also from America, will be increased in the future. For the Tractorostroi at Stalingrad alone, from two to three hundred skilled workers knowing the tractor industry will be required. A group of engineers is being brought from Japan to work on the rationalisation of the railway transport. Special groups of engineers and workers are being recruited for the other giants in process of construction. In this way we absorb the experience of large-scale production in the advanced capitalist countries, and shall do this still more extensively in the future. However, the core of the whole problem of personnel is the training of new experts. Whatever our achievements as regards the proper utilisation of the old forces, we are bound to reckon with the fact that a certain section of them is incapable of properly readjusting itself in keeping with the new problems of socialist economic reconstruction, and that the vast new demands made 39
