Transcript THE PRESENT ORGANIZATION AND ITS DEFICIENCIES THE first organizations of the working class youth were called into being by various circumstances and as various have been the forms of their construction. The first Leagues almost twenty years ago were either apprentices' unions which were launched to organize the resistance of the young workers against the small masters or were anti-militarist organizations resisting the maltreatment of the young soldiers in barracks, or they were literary and political discussion circles. The apprentices' unions were by their very nature most fitted to admit large numbers of the young workers into their ranks and because of this they gained a considerable influence. In general their activities were propagandist in character tho in some places they conducted an energetic and bravely lead guerilla warfare against the small masters. The lack of assistance by the old Social Democratic Parties, the persecution of the police authorities and the barriers which existed and still exist between the adult trade unions and the apprentices rendered it impossible for these nascent organizations to gather huge masses of the young workers into their ranks for any decisive struggle. Only was it when the rapid development ot the adult labor movement, which took place about this time, permitted, that the effects of the propaganda in favor of the youth unions became evident in a considerable accession of membership and a corresponding increase of influence. The program of the youth movement has varied according to the country in which it has worked but always it has included economic anti-militarist and educational activity. The second stage of its development is marked by the increasing persecution of the police authorities, the confining influence of the trade unions and Social Democratic Parties, and the increasing participation of youth organizations in political life, in their struggle 8
