Transcript THE NECESSITY OF THE WORK IN THE SHOPS ~\ LL these deficiencies of our present form of organization became /\ obvious at the moment when our Leagues attempted to jl\. accomplish the completely new tasks without changing the organizational form. Let us mention some typical experiences:— RECRUITING WEEKS In these weeks it has been the custom of the Leagues to set definite tasks to be performed each day. Only in very few cases has an exact survey of the results been carried out. With the general result it is possible to express satisfaction, but if an analysis of the results were conducted the same organizational weakness would be discovered, as witness the report of the League in one of the largest cities in Germany:— "The following tasks were set in the recruiting week: (a) house agitation, (b) parents' evenings, (c) work in the shops, (d) Red Sunday in the country. The tasks (a) and (b) were carried out comparatively well. The tasks in the shops, and the Red Sunday in the country were almost complete failures. In those districts were the first two tasks were carried thru successfully, the tasks (c) and (d) were a complete failure and the whole results of the week were thus diminished. We will have to make up for the lost time and carry thru these important activities in shop, school and trade union." There can be no objection that this is merely an individual case for there is good reason to believe that the same is universally true. The deficiency lies in the fact that, whilst the purely territorial tasks, house agitation etc. were carried thru successfully, the so-called "outside" tasks, which require for their success an organization which we do not possess, were completely failures. 20
