Transcript obligation of the trade unions. To-day this side of their activity, so far from being weakened, must be intensified in every possible way, while waging a still sharper struggle against bureaucratic tendencies in the trade union apparatus. Given such an attitude to the work of the trade unions, we shall achieve its considerable improvement and raise it still one stage higher. It is with the same object in view that, by the decision of the Central Council of Trade Unions, the cleansing of the trade union apparatus has begun. When we recall the great inertia, routine and bureaucracy which exist in the trade union apparatus, we are bound to welcome this decision. The campaign for re-electing leading committees which has begun in the Metal Workers' Union will also prove very important. The Party strives to bring about the adjustment of the trade unions to the tasks of production, i.e., to extend their part in carrying out the industrial and financial plan and in fulfilling the Five Years' Plan in four years. Passing now to the Soviets, I must say that in the sphere of soviet construction, particularly in the villages, our tasks have now undergone important changes. Last year's campaign for the re-election of the Soviets took place in quite different conditions, when the swing of opinion in the main mass of the peasantry towards collectivisation bad not yet taken place. To-day there is necessity for a sharp change in the work of the Soviets, embodied in the slogan of: "Eyes on the collective farming movement." With this object in view, the Central Executive Committee of the U.S.S.R. held a special conference in January of representatives of the local Soviets. But can it be said that we have already applied this slogan? Of course not. Vet the organisation of the work of the Soviets has a tremendous bearing on the cause of collectivisation. As the basic organs of the proletarian dictatorship, they must take the lead of the mass movement for collectivisation, they must constitute the leadership in the building of collective farms, they must face fairly and squarely the requirements of the collective farms, assisting them to eliminate defects and mistakes. This, however, we have not achieved as yet ; and hence, in a number of places there have taken and are taking place the re-election of the Soviets, with "Eyes on the collective farms" as the main watchword. There has also taken place the reorganisation of the Party apparatus. Its guiding principle is to intensify the attention of the whole apparatus to the problem of personnel, the problem of distributing old and training new workers, and also the improvement of the Party guidance of various branches of our constructive work. Tin: staff of the higher bodies is now being numerically reduced, and the composition of the leading personnel strengthened 43
