Footnotes to Chapter 6
1
In addition to the agencies of the secretariats discussed in this chapter, there are certain special bodies which also perform staff tasks. The Organizational Bureau (Orgburo), a junior and more specialized counterpart of the Politburo, existed until 1952. Similarly, the Central Auditing Commission, a kind of junior Central Committee elected at each Congress, supervises Party finances. The Party Commission (for a time known as the Party College) reviews Party operations, especially expulsion or other punishment of members. The permanent personnel of all these agencies appears to be frequently interchanged with the secretariat staff agencies.

See an account of the interrogation of a captured Soviet officer of the Ukrainian Staff of the partisan movement, Aleksandr Ruzanov, contained in Krakivs'ki Visti (a Ukrainian nationalist paper published under German occupation), October 23, 1943 (hereafter cited as "Ruzanov"). Since Ruzanov was a prisoner of the Nazis when he made his statement concerning Spivak's nationality, it might be regarded as suspect but for the secretary's first name, Moisei--sometimes listed as Musii ( Visti, June 29, 1938), a name rarely held in Russia or in the Ukraine by a non-Jew. As late as February, 1939, just before the creation of the cadres secretaryship, Spivak was only third secretary of the Kiev obkom ( Pravda, February 9, 1939).

On Spivak's role in the partisan movement, see Ruzanov; also see Fedorov, p. 510.

Inspectors of the Central Committee of the KPU are fairly important officials, apparently with roving commissions to keep the Republic Party authorities informed on Party operations in outlying areas. It is not clear whether they are responsible to some section of the Secretariat or whether they report directly to the principal secretaries or to the Presidium (Politburo) as a whole.

At that time this section was replaced by the Administration for Verification of Party Organs, headed by Sergei Iakovlevich Vaksman. See Pravda, January 26, 1949.
