All the various bodies serving the food organisations of different trades, such as Prodput or Prodvod, etc., are asked to combine their efforts, their staffs, their agents and detachments with the main forces of the Commissariat for Food. Refusal to co-operate signifies or would signify a refusal to support the Soviet authorities, a refusal to assist in the fight. against famine by all the workers and all. the peasants. The only way to combat famine is to join forces.


{1} This document was adopted by the C.P.C. without amendment and incorporated in its decision on the private purveyance of food supplies which was published on June 1 in Izvestia No. 110 (see Decrees of the Soviet Government, Vol. II, Moscow, 1959, pp. 344-48).
