This work in Soviet Russia is extended and given a firmer foundation in the study circles, classes, etc., formed by the nuclei. Large nuclei even establish schools and newspapers, stage the performance of plays written by any of the young workers with a dramatic gift, supplement the practical education by mass visits to the museums, etc. There need be no limits to the educational influence of the nuclei which can become such a part of the life of the young workers that they shall consider them as their very own and indispensable organizations.

The influence of the nuclei becomes evident also in the increased intensity of production obtained by explaining to the young workers the urgent necessity of improving the Soviet economy, and 3- 35
