Transcript ( // part in the discussion and to present the communist point of view; they will find that it will be easy to control the nature of the discussion and to ensure that it always centers round the main problems of the working class. They should persuade all the young workers to express their point of view when the misconceptions can be eradicated and the young workers will imperceptibly adopt our methods of thought. It is essential that our political opponents in the shop, no matter of what brand, shall be forced into a statement and defense of their point of view. This is perhaps one of the most difficult of tasks, but it may be accomplished by ridicule and insinuations of funk when for very shame they will attempt to justify their position. Here is the chance of the members of the nucleus. In the discussions that follow the superiority of our point of view will become evident to the young workers who will come to our members for the solution of knotty political problems. Should a shop meeting be held it is essential that the speaker cf the League nucleus should be in complete agreement with the speaker of the Party nucleus. During the shop council elections, from which the young workers are excluded the nucleus must conduct a campaign amongst the adult workers in favor of the communist candidates. THE ECONOMIC WORK As has been stated the economic activity of the nucleus is its main task. It must be well informed on all the labor laws affecting the young workers and on the particular agreements controlling the employment of the young workers in its own shop, whether as apprentices or unskilled workers. It must pay particular attention to the hygienic conditions of work of the canteen, the toilets, etc. It must be thoroly conversant with the questions of the vacations, night and piece work, overtime and, in short, every circumstance affecting the interests of the youth in the shop. The trade union work is definitely shop work and should not be separated from it. The members of the nucleus in the trade union must continually bring forward the case of the young workers for almost invariably the unions will conduct negotiations and come to agreements without any reference to the interests of the youth unless they are continually reminded of the existence of the youth by the nucleus members. The work in the school is also a part of the activity of the nucleus which must inform itself on all matters relating to it; Time of instruction, curriculum, training, treatment etc. 43
