Transcript Year Plan. Especially now it is incumbent upon us to perfect our knowledge concerning the natural resources of our country, taking full stock of what we know and what we do not know on this question and taking all the necessary steps to render our knowledge more complete.

On this point, I fear, we cannot give a clear and concrete answer. We may, at times, have to resort to generalities, and at other, even mumble something inarticulate. Such replies cannot of course afford us any degree of satisfaction. Statements about our natural wealth have indeed become truisms. The whole world knows about it, especially the bourgeois ruling class. They have every reason for casting covetous glances in our direction, slyly watching for any "slip" we might make somewhere in our business dealings so that they might be able to lay hands on our "abundant" land and transform it into a colony, having first established here such "law and order" that it would shake the earth in its very foundations.
