Transcript and at every step reveals the shortcomings in the work of our organisations and their unsuitability for work in the new conditions. Eleven and a half millions are organised in our trade unions. It is easy to see that the increase in the activity of tin' working masses has greatly complicated the work of the leading trade union bodies. The collective farming movement already embraces about 15 million peasant farms. Overturning the traditional order of things in the villages, collectivisation refashions the village anew, and, of course, to take control of this movement is patently beyond the powers of many agricultural co-operative organisations. In the growth of new forms of mass movement, both in the differing forms of socialist competition in the factories and in the building of collective farms in the villages, there is much that is as yet unstable and fluid. This involves—particularly in the backward districts—the danger that the movement may ebb, and that waverings may take place amongst the masses in other forms. The stormy torrent by which the country is undergoing its revolutionary transformation bears with it a great deal of silt; but the ever-increasing' attraction of the masses into the work of socialist construction is the guarantee that socialism is being built up in our country on a firm and stable basis. In this, of course, one cannot exaggerate the importance of the leadership of the Bolshevik Party. It is necessary to say a few words in particular about the tasks of the Party leadership in the present conditions. It is unnecessary to prove to you that the Party has always moved, and moves to-day, as the vanguard of the toiling masses, that it controlled and controls the whole enterprise of socialist construction. As new millions are drawn into that work, the tasks of the vanguard become particularly rsponsible. The vanguard has to show initiative, daring and consistency in its fight against the enemy, and at the same time it must be able to lead a mass numbering many millions in its train, patiently explaining the road to be travelled, raising its spirits and confidence in periods of inevitable difficulty. To be able to take the lead of millions and tens of millions of toilers in town and country means, on the one hand, not to give Way to hesitation in applying our principles—something we will have to deal with more than once yet—and on the other hand, not to run too far ahead, to be able to consolidate the stage which has been passed through and to bring up the detachments which fall behind, taking into account the necessitv for reckoning with the peculiar conditions of particular sections of the workers. Only o-iven these premises will the victory of our cause be assured and confidence in victory develop amongst the masses themselves. Lenin taught us all this with particular insistence. Our successes are to be explained bv the fact that amongst the masses of workers 53
