Comment on Soviet agricultural decree: The decree published by the Communist Party Central Committee on 12 September places an increased em- phasis on agriculture and will have far-reaching economic and politi- cal effects. It specifies a larger allocation of heavy industry output to agriculture than is provided for in the current Five-Year Plan. � The new program calls for an increase of approximately 30 percent in the delivery of tractors, and for sharp increases in livestock, vegetable and fodder production by 1954. Along with increased emphasis on party control of farming, there is to be a large-scale expansion of schools and training facilities to produce agricultural experts. In the interim, some production experts and engineers are to be transferred from industry to agriculture. Highlighting the political significance of this document are the concessions made to private production and the incentive-producing measures embodied in new delivery rates for the collective farms. The new policy is designed to stimulate the productivity of labor in agriculture and provide more popular support for the new Soviet government. FAR EAST . North Korean air units may be entering North Korea: There are indications that headquarters elements of five North Korean air divi- sions may recently have moved from Manchuria into North Korea, elements of the 5th Division may be located at Mirim, east of Pyongyang, elements of the 3rd and 21st Divisions at Taechan, thirty miles north of Sinanju, and elements of the 4th Division at Chongjin on the east coast.
