Transcript presented itself at the branch headquarters. Fortunately, thanks to the energy and determination of a handful of comrades, it was possible, despite the weakness of contact between the branch and the workshops, to make up for the lost time and to formulate the correct demands. The exact relation of the League to this strike, with all its deficiencies, can be seen in the following criticism written by comrades who were actually engaged in the strike:— " The action was lead by five or six comrades, instead of the whole branch. These comrades worked day and night and the others knew hardly anything about the strike and the revolutionary work connected with it The importance of mobilizing the entire organization for this revolutionary work, was underestimated. The few comrades w/w, in response to the appeal of the local organ, reported themselves for service, were given neither concrete tasks nor definite instructions as to how they could render service to the strikers and be enrolled in the struggle." This is indeed a thoro self-criticism, and it must be remembered that this strike was no isolated instance. Spontaneous apprentices strikes are becoming ever more frequent and in almost every case the League is confronted with the accomplished fact; yet the strikes are always preceded by a period of discontent when the material for the outburst is being prepared. If the Leagues had their basis in the workshops it would be easy to take control of the agitation and even to time the strike so that it might occur at the most convenient time for the workers and not take the League by surprize. The fact that the Leagues are everywhere caught unprepared by these happenings proves that the merely fractional form of organization, with the main body of members gathered in the branch, is not sufficient for modern conditions of industrial struggle. Even in cases where the branches have warning of an impending strike it is not possible to use the full forces of the organization. The financial support of the strikers is delayed. The propaganda amongst the general public in favor of the strike by our press is left to incidents, the mobilization of the members of the League not actually involved in the strike is difficult and takes a long time on account of the cumbrous nature of our branch structure. This became evident not only in strikes of the young workers but also in general strikes when large numbers of young workers 24 / j J
