Transcript left to chance and the individual energies of the comrades. Naturally like all other unorganized work, it has been done badly. The papers should be centered on the workshop life of the proletarian youth so that they may be of interest and concern to the broad masses of the young workers who must be made to feel that there is a definite connection between themselves and our Press. The same deficiency is visible here as in all other phases of our work. We have yet to find the solid ground on which to base our activities. As yet it is our basis in theory only and until we make it our basis in very fact we cannot develop, and our ambitions will remain chimerical. The work in the shops and its organizational foundation has become a problem upon which depends our development into a mass organization. SHOP NUCLEI DEMANDED BY THE POLITICAL SITUATION Apart from the various experiences already mentioned, the present trend of political events will compel us to go beyond the very limited field permitted to us by the present form of our organization. A structure must be built in the factories, workshops and mines to improve the political and economic conditions of the workers, to organize the resistance of the masses to the attacks of the master class which threaten to deprive the working class of all countries of even the elementary rights that they have won so hardly in the past. The Fourth World Congress of the Communist International has therefore decided for all Communist Parties:— "No Communist Party can be considered as a serious and solidly organized communist mass party if it does not possess solid communist nuclei in the shops, factories, mines, railways, etc Especially will Ihe struggle against the capitalist offensive and for the control of production fail, if the communists have not at their disposal solid mainstays in all shops and if the workers have not created their own militant bodies in the shops (shop councils, etc.). The Con- ' gress therefore considers it as one of the main tasks of the Communist Parties, to sink their roots more than hitherto into the factories " 27
