The conference; called by Presi- dent Gompers, is considered one of epochal importance and is one of the few of its kind ever held in the his- tory of the federation. The first business was the presen- tation by the executive council of a uf rights" and recommemlatioua for a labor program.

Legislation to further the cause o organized labor is to be considerec by the couferenco. Survey of industrial conditions throughout the United States was taken1 by. labor leaders here today ant all agreed that the present depression was the worst the federation had fac- ed in years.
