Transcript It is important that the work of the nucleus should be reported continually to the branch so that it may be of a uniform nature with the work of the other nuclei in the district and so that if necessary the district nuclei may act in concert on any question of urgency. If the nuclei in general effectively perform their particular tasks and constantly refer their experiences to the branches which in their turn will pass on to the League headquarters the knowledge gained, it will be possible for the League to organize the work on a national basis and combine the activity of the Young Communist League with the general working class struggle. EDUCATIONAL WORK. The nucleus can best combine political and educational work which must be done in connection with all other forms of activity. The first educational task of the nucleus is the training of its own members in the militant political work awaiting their hands. The nucleus should hold regular members meetings to discuss the political or local situation and its relation thereto. It must discuss the resolutions and decisions of the various conferences, etc.; it must read and discuss the national and international organs and pamphlets, the communist dailies and the papers of our political opponents. This should give the members the knowledge necessary for their work amongst the youth in the shops. Apart from this practical knowledge the nucleus must extend the theoretical knowledge of its members, the history and development of the youth, labor and trade union movements. The history of revolutions the mode and why of capitalist production—all these matters are connected with the daily work of the nucleus and must be treated by the nucleus in its meetings, classes, eic. The educational work of the nucleus does not only consist of this difficult theoretical work, it must conduct a campaign against penny dreadfuls and similar " literature" endeavoring to replace them with good books from the labor literature. There are many of the latter at our disposal, of facinating interest, novels, etc., which, whilst stimulating the imagination und satisfying the desire to leave the workaday world behind and experience a little romance, at the same time point the moral and adorn the tale of our daily struggle with the master class. The nucleus should, as it develops, arrange musical and dramatic or social evenings giving them a mass character for the young \ < I 44
