Washington, Nov. 14.—Aroused by the plans of the Itail
■ymen's Brotherhood to demand wage increases, Presi
knt Wilson has set the machinery of the federal govern
lent in motion to avert, if possible, the threat of a pa
llysis of the country's transportation systems so vital to
le war. At a conference with the heads of the "Big
bur" brotherhoods at the white house on Nov. 22 Presi
knt Wilson will appeal to the labor leaders to defer any
p-iiggle until after the country has passed through the
kriod where its transportation systems are so vital to the
Induct of the war. With the announcement of this con
rence it was disclosed that President Wilson, while en
piaining every hope for a complete agreement, does not
tend to permit the country transportation system to lie
bd up by a strike at this critical time in the nation's his
|ry even if it becomes necessary for the government to
rate the roads.
