Transcript I I activity by concentrating on the questions which are of greatest interest to the young workers in the respective factory. The permanent work of an average nucleus consists of:— (1) The economic struggle of the working class youth which is the chief task of the nucleus. The nucleus must be well-informed on all wage-agreements, payment of wages, working hours, strikes, holidays, treatment of the young workers, the hygienic conditions in the factory and in the workers' dwellings (if such are in existence), on sick benefits, and all school matters. Only thus will the nucleus be able to discuss all these questions with the young workers, with the shop council, the trade union representatives, as well as within the trade unions thru the fractions of the League. All this work must be conducted on the basis of the decisions of the Y.C.I, on the economic campaigns of the League within the factory. (2) Political agitation, individual, as well as at meetings, and by the distribution 'of literature. (3) Recruiting of new members, whose admission must be endorsed by the local branch which is in charge of the registration of members. (4) Educational work in its simplest forms, as for instance, short political reports, discussion of problems of the labor and the youth movement, distribution of books from the branch library, arrangement of revolutionary evening gatherings, hikes, singing of revolutionary songs, publication of a branch or nucleus paper. The educational work of the nucleus must not push into the background the economic and political work which is the most important task of the Young Communist Leagues. It must correspond with the tasks of communist education, and must be very carefully adapted to the psychology of the industrial young workers. (5) Descriptions of the life of the young workers and of the work of the nuclei within the various factories must be given regularly in the Party and League press. (6) Convocation of shop meetings of young workers. (7) Collection of membership dues, a definite percentage of which must be handed over to the branch which has charge of all financial matters. The nuclei must work legally, semi-legally or illegally according to the prevailing conditions in their particular country, town, or shop, all of which will have a bearing on the possibility or the methods of fulfilment of the above-mentioned tasks. 57
