Kills Goose That Laid Golden Eggs.
Story in Villages.
Samara, on the Volga, Oct. 18.
Constant requisitions of grain by the
Red army and other authorities, as
well as the lack of rainfall, was a chief
cause of the great famine in this sec
tion of Rlussia, according to the peas
ant farmers. They say the Soviet It
self, helped kill the goose that laid the
The story of the famine and its
most intense miseries can not 'be had
In the cities. It is only In the 'little
villages, where the farm workers live
and whore the famine bad its origin
.that the truth, bare, bitter and crush
ing, can be ascertained.
The story of the village of Novo
Semikinol, 16 miles from Samara, Is
-typical of many the correspondent
visited up and down 'the Vol-ga. Riding
out across the rich, rolling farmland,
swept by the cold nwinds from the east,
but still beautiful in the golden
autumn, the forests shot with deep
brown, the grass yet green and upon
it .herds of cattle and horses, with
here and there patches of fields plough
ed and sowed -with spring rye and
wheat, one arrives at this village
straggling for a half mile along the
two sides of the main road.
A heavy silence envelopes the vil
lage. Many of its one-storied, log
cabin homes, each shut' off from the
other by high rall fences enclosing a
quarter-acre -plot for chickens, cows,
wagons 'and barns are shut, the
windows boarded and the doors lock
Midway In the village the corre
sqpondent stopped, knocked at the door
of an occupied home.'The peasant said
the village was composed of 250 hous
es, 50 of which had been deserted by
the owners going elsewhere for food.
Two years earlier the 'richer peasants
had worked each about 300 acres of
land -but now they farmed ibut three
acres. Normally, the yield .was 60 to 80
bushels of -rain per each three acres,
whereas this summer, the harvest had
been but about 40 pounds. Last year
the -harvest had been about four -bush
els of grain to each three acres.
At that point the peasant, a tall
raiw-boned man thinned by lack of
food, 'began to get angry. The Red
army of Samara, had last December
ordered the village to contribute about
5,800 bushels of grain, for which no
payment was to ibe received. The vil
lage hadn't been able to su-pply all
this requisition but offered -part. So
the Red soldiers came and took the
amount of the requisition.
The village was -left without seed
grain, though it was promised from
Samara, and was also without food for
the Winter. To get bread, in Decem
ber, the villagers, 'began selling off
their valuables, and eating their cat
tle and sheep. As the winter deep
ened, the famine set in, and the poor
er villagers began to boil up old skins
and hides from furs, even the soles of
old boots and shoes.
When last spring came, Samara
failedl to furnish much seed grain, and
the peasants sold mere valuables to
buy a little. One way or another they
had 26 pounds of seed grain per three
acres. Then came a dry spring anid a
dry summer, 'with a scant harvest. The
rain came after the harvest.
The peasant, citing the way of the
Soviet .requisiltions said 52,000 'pounds
of 'potatoes had theen taken and locked
up in the basement of the ehurch and
had 'there spoiled.
The -worst of it was, he said, that
in the face of their starvation, the
Samara Soviet had just ordered the
village, to furnish three -to six pounds
of butter for each cow owned. Yet
the only food for the cows was field
grass, and most of them no longer
The villagers were eating fruit,
melons, 'pumpkins, and -bread made
from roots, nuts and tree bark. They
had enough for two or three weeks
longer. "A -pound of bread can not be
had here, no, not for 1,000,000 rubles,"
The villagers 'were suffering from
stomach disorders, and aaked for
castor oil, a medicine not to -be had
in the whole district. They admitted
that food, not medicine, was what they
-"Our only -hope i's .the Americans,"
they said. "Otherwise we must die."
