Transcript peaceful propaganda etc., its organizational structure was moulded upon those lines with political ward areas as a basis. In many places this method persists still despite the radical changes in working conditions brought about by the international upheaval. The youth movement is not and cannot be outside the political labor movement and the tendencies of the adult movement have their inevitable effect on the organization of the youth. Despite the great changes undergone by the youth organizations in the course of time, the typical organizational features of their originating period have been maintained. The parochial nature of their branches, their general club character, the concentration of their work inside their own organization, their separation from the great masses of the working class youth, all these faults of organization render much of the work done futile, and fritter away useful energy; indeed, it may be said that the youth organizations are suffering from a social democratic heritage which cramps and narrows their movements. It is from this hoary tradition that our Young Communist Leagues must ruthlessly tear themselves. Even with the new phase of the youth movement spelt by the formation of our Leagues this old form has not yet been changed. At the Second World Congress of the Young Communist International the role and the tasks of the Young Communist Leagues were clearly defined: The gathering and enrolment of the broad masses of the proletarian youth in the militant struggle against the master class and their revolutionary education to this end; the training of the youth of our class to take their place in the gigantic task of communist reconstruction after the social revolution. It is the breadth and vision of our task that constitutes the essential difference in the work of the Leagues and demands such a profound change in our organizational structure. To attempt to accomplish a task of such dimensions with the methods at present in use would be like attempting to produce the world's food with a hand-plow. The hand-plow must be scrapped and the motor tractor installed. The Young Communist Leagues must engage in the every daily struggle of the proletarian youth for the amelioration of their lot, for the shortening of the hours of labor, for increases of pay. No grievance of the proletarian youth must be too small for the attention of the Young Communist Leagues. In this way they will earn and enjoy the confidence and respect of the young workers who will listen to their counsel and follow their leadership. Thru 10
