He Says, Addressing Con
Samuel Gomprn, president ot the
Amercan Federation ot Labor, to
day called upon organised labor to
protect "the democratic tastitntons
of our country" from attecks "tW
plutocratic reaction" and "insidious
propaganda of European Insanity."
TO P'ONT orUM sUoP.
Gompers, addressing the opening
conference of heads of the national
and international unions affiliated
with the American Federation of La
bor. called upon the representatives
of labor to meet "the issues of the
most serious character affecting our
people and our republic."
The conference was called to com
bat the open shop movement, to draw
up a bill of rights and make demands
for legislation protecting the rights
of labor for collective bargaining, and
to - organise against movements for
reduction of wages and longer work
Mr. Gompers statement was as fol

100 UNIONS PRESENT.
Representatives of 100 international
unions aaliated with the American
Federation of Labor were present
when the conference convened. The
executive council of the federation
submitted for their consideration an
outline of the stand which organised
labor will take in the present econo
mic and industrial crisis. It is not ex
pected that the program of the coun
ail will be materially altered by the
conference of union leaders.
The program submitted by the
council, it is understood, dealt in de
tail with plans for increasing the
power and membership of the unions
and broadening their scope, with pro
posed legislation affecting organized
labor and with the campaign against
the open shop. It Is expected the con
ference will take a determined stand
against any reduction of the present
wage scales or lengthening of the
present hours of labor.
A NOTICE TO HAnDING.
Coming immediately before the in
auguration of President-elect Hard
ing and the installation of the new
Administration, this program, eon
sidered as "labor's bill of rights," is
expected to serve as formal notice
to the Harding regime of what labor
expects and will demand.
Some of the organizations sent sev
eral delegates and nearly two hun
hundred union leaders were present
when the meeting was called to order
behind closed doors.
