Transcript will therefore commence immediately to form nuclei in shops of large-scale industry. In Finland where we have already 3,000 members in Helsingfors alone, and have at our disposal an excellently constructed system of small working groups, some of which will have to be charged with the formation of shop nuclei. One rule, however, must be universally applied— "That old forms of organization must not be blindly destroyed before the new organizational apparatus has been solidly established." Therefore a League should not begin its organizing work simultaneously everywhere in the whole country, but at first in those places only where it can be most easily done. The fact, that in the cities we have generally a few members only in one or two big shops, will facilitate the transition. Under such conditions we will generally not pay great attention to the other shops, but concentrate our attention on those where we have already members, until we have formed there working nuclei. A good example will have a greater effect than all lectures to shop officials. Therefore, we must from the beginning strongly support the new nuclei and assist them in the perfection of their meetings and socials. In places, where a territorial branch does not yet exist, the formation of a branch should best be done immediately on the shop basis. Here the branch committee will from the beginning be composed correctly. The members of a shop will be combined into a nucleus, they will be quite different from that of a territorial branch. In small towns where, on account of the economic structure, the formation of nuclei is impossible, the branch must be transformed ideologically, so that it dees not merely interest itself in its own branch matters, but pays attention to the situation of the apprentices in the workshops of the locality. If this work is done systematically, and under the control of the leading committees, we need not worry about the fact that after some time one part of the organization is already built up on the new basis, whilst the other part has still maintained its territorial structure. In large and well constructed organizations of our Leagues we will have to take a number of transitional measures. The greatest part of the task is to see to it that the majority of our membership consists of young workers from the middle-sized and large shops. But until this end is attained, a number of steps can be taken which lead us on this road. The leaders of the present shop fractions may £ 52
