CONCLUSION 161
In order to help the peasants in the famine districts,
who are destitute of live stock and agricultural
equipment, to recommence cultivating their land,
we are establishing two model stations for agri
cultural reconstruction, one in Russia and one in
Ukraine. Being furnished with a score of tractors
(most of which are already on the way to Russia),
repair outfits, and necessary implements, and in
addition with a certain amount of working capital,
each of these stations will be capable of farming
a considerable extent of country. Under the
direction of a foreign agricultural expert sent to
Russia for the purpose, these stations will be run
on an entirely commercial basis ; the peasants
and co-operative peasant societies are to pay in
corn, after the next harvest, for the work which
is done for them. The income obtained will be
entirely and exclusively devoted to relief in the
famine districts. Detailed reports on the develop
ment of the stations, the difficulties encountered,
and the results obtained, will be published at
frequent intervals by our publicity office, thus
enabling the industrial world outside to secure up
to-date information as to the conditions under which
work may be done in Russia.
Our idea is that this reconstructive work’, so
necessary in order to help the population of the
famine districts, shall continue until the summer
of 1924, as far as our means permit, and in
co-operation with the other philanthropic organisa
tions. At the same time we shall give such aid
as may be possible of a medical and sanitary
