Transcript do not carry on any continuous and intensive propaganda amongst them, and in consequence—altho in some places they have been warmly welcomed—they have remained numerically weak and industrially ineffective. These facts lead us to further considerations which help us in the task of retrenchment and reveal to us the nature of the social as well as organizational deficiencies of our Leagues. THE ROLE OE THE INDUSTRIAL WORKER The Russian League only of all the sections of the Y.C.I, has been a mass organization from the beginning of its career. The Petrograd branch at its foundation numbered 19,000 members mostly recruited from the large work-shops. In other Leagues the situation was and is different. We will mention here only the larger Leagues. What is their present composition? In the strong Finnish organization the majority of the members are rural workers. The Bulgarian League has four fifths of its branches outside the towns; to every seven members in the cities there are nine in the country. The Italian League has innumerable small branches tho its industrial basis is almost negligible; its membership is divided approximately as follows:—The province of Trieste, 800 members, in the city 180, the other members are in 55 branches in the country. Two thirds of the Leagues in Czecho-Slovakia and Germany are composed of workers in the small shops, the remaining third only being engaged in large scale production. Even this low percentage seems to be exaggerated, as statistics prove that we have either no members at all or very few in the large scale works. Unfortunately the data available on the composition of the Leagues are incomplete and unreliable. In many cases no data of any kind are obtainable. It is incontestable, however, that the number of our members actually engaged in industry is small and that the number engaged in large scale industry is still smaller. The reason for this state of affairs is not far to seek. Partly it has been given previously in these pages, in the weak and unsystematic form of organization previously used, the absence of shop nuclei and the almost complete lack of shop work. A contributing factor is that our Leagues have not paid sufficient attention to the interests of the young industrial workers. The stress that 16
