Transcript again in the excellent revolutionary spirit of the non-partizan conferences of the Russian working class youth, altho generally not more than 30 per cent of the delegates is composed of League members. The nuclei have in many cases strengthened the trust of the young workers in them by holding their sessions publicly before the members of the shops, thus giving the youth an opportunity of observing the methods of the communists in dealing with the questions arising out of workshop life. The nuclei system enables the Russian League to perform another all important task—the training of the youth to take their place as officials of the adult party. The member of the League can observe at close quarters the activites of the Party members in the factory administration. He can learn from the examples before him how he may ultimately and worthily take his place in the Party; as in the shops the contact between the Party and the League is of the closest. This is not so in the branch where every member is not in action and feels diffident of self expression before the leaders of the League, and the relation to the Party is a theoretical one only. In the shops every member of the various nuclei has his particular job. One member is the representative of the shop committee in the Party nucleus, another is a member of the cultural and wage-scale commission, a third belongs to the club and cooperative administration, others are in the council of the factory school, or in the pupils' executive, where they collect dues, distribute papers, keep up the contact with the district committee, organize the preparatory military training of the young worker, correspond with papers, work in study circles, etc. Everyone receives his task, in which he can become perfect. In the shops our members are not afraid to express their opinions before their fellow workers with whom they are on thoroly familiar terms, they are in an atmosphere to which they are well used, and on these terms they can become more fitted to lead the masses as party officials, being, as they are, not merely in contact with the masses but definitely of the masses. The close connection of the young workers with their nuclei is the distinguishing feature of this form of organization. This is shown when for instance the young workers leave the nuclei and join the Red Navy etc. The absent members of the League flood their nuclei with letters describing life in the Red Navy and the nuclei respond by sending parcels greetings etc. I 36
