Third: a course having been mapped out, it must be pursued no matter what difficulties and complications may be encountered on the road. This is necessary so that the vanguard may not lose sight of the main aim of the struggle and the masses may not stray from the road wdiile marching to that goal and attempting to rally around the vanguard.

This error was corrected by the withdrawal of the Bolsheviks from the Preliminary Parliament. Fourth: manoeuvring with the reserves calculated to effect a correct retreat when the enemy is strong, when retreat is inevitable, when the disadvantages of engaging in a battle forced upon us by the enemy are obvious, when retreat is the natural way under the given alignment of forces to ward off a blow from the vanguard and keep the reserves intact. "The revolutionary parties," says Lenin, "must complete their education. They have learned to attack. Now they must understand that it is necessary to supplement this
