Abstract : The party, Komsomol, and trade union organizations of the Kobrinskiy Rayon contribute considerably to the atheist education of the workers. The study-room for atheism, established more than two years ago at the rayon party committee, plays an important role in this. It is supported by trained atheists. The most important problems of atheist propaganda and work plans are discussed at meetings of the study-room council, which consists of five people. The study-room began its activity with the training of lecturers and agitators. With this view in mind, we conducted seminars about twice a month in which qualified atheist lecturers from Moscow, Minsk, and Brest took part. People who have broken with religion have appeared and will appear in the future at these seminars. They tell how it has helped them to be rid of the religious narcotic, and expose the methods of the Baptist preachers. The themes and texts of the lectures are discussed at the seminars.
