Today more than ever before, Cormunist Party militants must heed the admonition to seek out and cooperate with ele?-:ents of the Radical Party. sectarian attitudes must be avoided by Party members, who should make a careful distinction between the rank-and-file of the Radical Party and its directorate, the CLIT. Co ?-iunists must try to con- vince Radical Party tembers thats an Continual concessions r. de by the Radical directorate to rightist parties are resulting in the complete isolation of the party. 'T he '"Liberals and the 'raditional Conservatives are only taking advantage of government :;Ieakness, and will never support a Radical candidate for president in 2952. c d Consequently, *~,adicals must demand that their directorates insist that the government follow a more just policy touard the working cuss, and one of complete liberty. Comsrunists should frequent Radical clubs in the various districts and nin;le with Radical elements. They must aid the councilmen in the communes, form, together with the Radicals, local Progress Committees, and give Radicals the most rep- resentative posts. '_..'hey mast join the syndicates organized by the Radicals through their f'yndical Department, and gradually work within the central syndical organ- izations which they create.

The most important thing is to guarantee to the workers that their families will not go hungry and that they can count on the support of their fellow workers. These strikes must be given a feeling of class struggle, freo from any political. aspect they may have or that the government might try to give to them. All cells must be alert, and especially if there is a strike at the gas company.' 3. S, ud n r ~t . Gor unists must give their complete support to the Univer- sity students In their street demonstrations. The Communist fractions of the University have their task laid out, and Cofnsmunists goner-illy must aid these comrades who at this time form the vanguard of direct straggle against the government. Student meetings which are held in the street must be defended by all Communists. If the police attack, Communists should go to the aid of the students and try to keep the women from being injured. The students should be encouraged by applause. Care must be taken that no counter-demonstrations can be staged. 4. I h me i~aer9?#* The street cells must coor2inate their work to organize a series of flash meetings in the various districts of the city. Not a single day should go by without one of these meetings being held. The secretary of the cell will receive notice a week in advance about these meetings, so that people may be ready to meet at a determined place at the hour indicated. One of the members of the cell which has organized the meeting will speak. The themes of the speeches will bee the unemployment which menaces the working class with a capitalist crisis; the inability of the government to solve the most immediate problems; the abandon- ment of Chile and Gonzalez Videla by American imperialists after they have taken the greatest possible advantage of the riches of Chilean mines. The speeches should emphasize the fact that the imperialists are withdrawing their support from Chile because the Soviet 'Union is.winning the battle for peace and the imperialists can no longer justify having large stocks of war machinery. A strike at the gas company was planned for the week beginning 1 May, but failed to materialize. MooCg;rrr }afi.
