Transcript D. : " And you really feel confident that all this would be done if your industries become more prosperous ? " " Of course," they again answered in chorus—many of them smiling seemingly at our simplicity. " Haven't we a Workers' Dictatorship," said one. " We are ourselves masters here," added another, with the evident approval of the rest. The above conversation is typical of scores of conversations we had with both men and women workers in the factories of Leningrad and elsewhere. Among the Donetz Miners During the visit to the Donetz Basin, we had many conversations with miners and their wives. After visiting the Liebknecht Salt Mine which struck the delegates as very airy and clean, and where it was particularly noted a portrait of Lenin had replaced the ikon at the entrance, we had the following conversation with a number of miners :— D. : " What are your conditions of life like at present ? " \\. : " Very bad still." D. : " As bad as they were a year or two ago ? " W. : " Oh no, they are better than that." D. : " Arc they any better than before the war ? " W.: " We cannot say." D. : " Would you like the Tsarist Government back ? " W. : " Oh no, no. There is no question of that. Of course we would not tolerate the Tsarist Government." D. : " Why not, if you arc no better off now ? " W.: " Because we have to live poorly and work hard, it does not mean that we do not appreciate that we are now free men." D. : " Would you prefer the Menshevik Government to the Soviet Government ? " W. : " Certainly not, there is no question of our wanting a government other than the Soviet Government." D. : " Are you members of the Communist Party ? " W. : " No." D. : " Who do you think is to blame for your present hard conditions ? " W. : " No one in particular, the world and civil wars we think." D. : " And are you confident that as the industry of the country is restored and improved, your conditions of life and work will improve ? " W.: " We have no doubt of it." D. : " If the Soviet Government were attacked by Mensheviks or others would you and your fellow workers rally to its defence ? " W.: " Certainly—the Soviet Government is our own government, and an attack on it, is an attack on us." D. : " Do all your workers think that ? " W. : " Yes, with a rare exception here and there." The Petrovsky Twine and Rope Wire Factory in Kharkov Here we had the following conversation with a number of women workers, who constitute 70 per cent, of those employed at this factory. D.: " Did you work here before the war ? " W.W. : "Yes, "No," &c. (83)
