Transcript are necessarily involved and attempts are always made by the masters to use the apprentices as scabs. The League must actively participate in any such struggle to prevent the use of the young workers as scabs, to keep the particular interests of the youth before the minds of the adult workers and to ensure that they shall not be overlooked in any settlement. These things can only be effectively accomplished by shop nuclei. These nuclei would prevent the recurrence of strikes in which the Leagues had no part. And recently there have been many. The work in this field of action is great and, if it is to be performed, our venue must be changed from the territory to the shop. But not only in our economic work in the large shops, but also in the struggle against the small masters we have gained one experience. A practical example is given in the following report: "In the workshop of a locksmith in A., there is an apprentice. He receives small wages, works 10 hours and suffers corporal punishment. What is the branch in A. doing? Unfortunately nothing. What could it do? There are thirty comrades in the branch; everyone of them would write a leaflet with a black or a red pencil and in very simple language. We paste these leaflets at the windows of the master, at the neighboring houses, give him a serenade, make a revolt in the whole quarter, etc." The apprentice lives in the quarter W. There he will probably attend the meetings of his branch. Which branch will have to assist him now? Branch A or branch W? Of course only branch A can assist him, for the workshop is situated in its territory. It results therefrom that the branch must be composed in such a manner, that it can pay attention to the shops of its territory. Thus the branch should consist of shop nuclei of A and these nuclei should also pay attention to the small and artizans' shops in their area. Today this cannot be done, as the members of the branch work in W.F.G and elsewhere. This does not apply to small places, of course, but there we generally find, that for considerations of all kinds which are inadmissible for the Young Communist Leagues, the branches do not carry on their struggle, especially in the small workshops and apprentices' sweating places. 25
