! WILL HID SUITES (OPENING OF THE WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE OF GOVERNORS ! AND MAYORS. READJUSTMENT PROBLEMS President Hopes Conference Dlscu j eion Will Assume a Wide Range, ; Including Means of Restoring Conditions To Normal. Washington. Opening the whits I house conference of governors and mayors on peace-time business and la bor problems, President Wilson prom lsed that the federal governments would consider Itself the servant ol the states, municipalities and counties in solving readjustment problems, and would perform its duty guided by sug gestions of the conference. The president said he hoped the con ference discussion would assume a wide range, including means of restor ing labor conditions to a normal basis as soon as possible, "and to effecting euch fresh allocation of labor and In dustry as the circumstances may make necessary." President Wilson said: I wish that I could promlso myself the pleasure and the profit of taking part In your deliberations. I find that nothing deliberate is permitted me since my re turn. I have been trying, under the guid ance of my secretary, Mr. Tumulty, to do a month's work in a week, and I am hoping that not all of it has been done badly, but inasmuch as there is a neees ary pressure upon my time, I know that you will excuse me from taking a part in your conference, much as I should b profited by doing so. My pleitsunt duty is to bid you a hearty welcome and to express my gratifi cation that so many executives of cities and of states have found the time and the inclination to come together on the very important matter we have to discuss. The primary duty'of caring for our peo ple in the intimate matters that we want to discuss here, of course, fall upon the states and upon the municipalities and the function of the federal government is to Jo what it is tryirif? to do in a conference of this sort draw the executhe minds of the country together so that they may profit by each other's suggestions and plans, and so that we may offer our serv ices to co-ordinate their efforts in any way that they may deem it wise to co ordinate. In other words, it is the privi lege of the federal government In matters of this sort to be the servants of the ex ecutives of the states and municipalities and counties, and we shall perform that duty with the greatest pleasure if you will guide us with your suggestions. I hope that the discussions of this con ference will take as wide a scope as you may think necessary. We are not met to discuss any single or narrow subject. We are not met to discuss the proper method of restoring all the labor condi tions of the country ta a normal basis as Boon as possible, and to effect such fresh allocations of labor and industry as the Circumstances may make necessary.

""""-in - i n mm mmi I 1 1 thihV 1 can Testify "from what I have seen on the other aide of the water, that we re more fottunate than other nations in respect to these great problems. Our In dustries have been disturbed and disor ganized disorganized as compared with a peace basis, very seriously, indeed, by the war, but not so seriously as the in dustries of other countries; and it seems to me, therefore, that we should approach these problems that we are about to dis cuss with a great deal cf confidence--with a good deal of confidence that if we: have a cimmon purpose we can realii that common purpose without serious or insurmountable difficulties. The thing that has impressed me most, gentlemen, not only in the recent wteks when I have been In conference on the other side of the water, but for many months before I went across the water, was this: We are at last learning that the business of government is to take coun sel for the average man.' We are at last learning that the whole matter of pros perity of peoples runs down into the great body of the men and women who do the work of the world, and that the process of guidance is not eumpleted by the mere ucceis of great enterprises it Is com pleted only by the standard of the benefit that it confers upon those who fn the obscure ranks of Ufa contribute to the success of those enterprises. The hearts of men and women and chil dren of the world are stirred now in a wav that has never been known before. Thev are not only stirred by their individ ual circumstances, but they are beginning to get a vision of what the general circum stances of the world are. and there is for the first time in history an international sympathy which is quick and vital a sympathy which does riot display itself merely in the contract of governments, but displays itself in ttie silent intercourse of sympathy between great bodies that constitute great nations, and the signifi cause of a conference like this is that we are expressing in it. and will, I believe, express in the results of this conference, our consciousness that we are servants of this great silent mass of people who constitute trie United States, and that as their servants it is our business, as it is our privilege, to find out hi-w we can best assist in making their lives what they wish them to be, giving them the opportu nities that they ought to have, assisting by public counsel in the private affairs upon which the happiness of men depends. And so I am the more distressed that-1 can not take part In these counsels be cause mv present business is to under stand what plain men everywhere want. 5t is perfectly understood In Paris that we are not meeting tiere as the masters of anvbodv that we are meeting there as the servants of. I believe it is, about 700,-000,000-people,' and that unless we show that we understand the business of serv ants, we will not satisfy them and we wl 1 not accomplish the peace of the world, and that if we show that we want to serve any interests hut theirs we will have be come candidates for the most lasting dis credit that will ever attach to men In history. . . , ,. And so it is with this profound feeling of the significiiuce'of the things you are undertaking that I bid you welcome, be cause 1 believe you have come together in the spirit whi'ii I have tried to indicate, and that we will together concert meth ods of cooperation and individual notion which will really accomplish what we wisli to see accomplished in steadying and easing and facilitating the whole labor processes f the I'nited States.
