Transcript I • workers. The possibilities for agreeable educational work of this kind are indefinite. At the same time the results are very tangible and definite. The nucleus should take advantage of all working class anniversaries to arrange mass meetings of the young workers. It should band them together for the purchase of banners, flags, etc. Where possible, a special nucleus bulletin should be issued to which the young workers in the shop may contribute articles, news items and the other workshop news of interest to the general mass in the shop. This bulletin which may be duplicated is not by any means so difficult as it would appear. A labor library should be collected to which the young workers may have recource for their reading matter. All these tasks, and many others not mentioned, of greater or lesser difficulty face the nucleus which need have no excuse for inactivity.

Where there is no legal conscription the antimilitarist activities of the nuclei must take other forms, viz. agitation against the bourgeois organizations which are thinly disguized preparatory military training schools, Boy scouts, Boy brigades, Church Lads' brigades, etc. The nucleus members must join bourgeois shop sport organizations and work amongst the proletarian youth within them, whom 45
