President Expressed Belief
That Delegates to Confer

WASHINGTON. 8ept. 26. (A. P.)
The national unemployment con
ference was formally opened today by
President Harding.- Addressing 60
Industrial, economie and labor leaders
comprising the conference, the presi
dent described the present Industrial
depression . as a"war Inheritance
throughout the world." He expressed
I the belief that the results of the con
ference would be felt Ueyona tne Dor
ders of the United States and that the
delegates would perform a 'ervice to
the world." "Fundamentally sound,
financially str'ons, industrially unim
paired, commercially consistent and
politically unafra!d there ought to be
work for everybody In the United
States who chooses to work.',' The
president declared an "open, sure and
ronward way" to rid the nation or wars
aftermath of depression involved was
"liquidation, reorganization, readjust
ment, re-establishment and taking
account of things done, and a sober
onntrmnlntfnn of thinirs to be done.
'any other way ia hugging a delusion."
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26 (V. P.)
All America must commit lUelf to
solving the unemployment problem,
President Harding told the delegates
to the unemployment conference call
ed to meet here today by Secretary i
Hoover. Over 50 delegates were pres
ent. President Harding expressed con
fidence that the Tnited States will not
fall In the task, but warned against i
hoping to solve the problem by re-1
course to methods seeking palliation 1
or tonic from the public treasury.
"There should be work In abund- I
ance in the Vnited States for those
willing to ," Harding said. "Normally
an unemployment problem of a mil-;
I lion and a half idle faces the country.
iThis year great throngs of men are
wi,noll. work. with the dancer prob-
'lem growing more serious as the win
jter comes on. Harding assured the
'delegates that with America funda
mentally strong and constitutionally
sound, it behooved them to seek the
proper solution for alleviating the
present suffering from lack of work
and prevent any augm 'ed conditi
ons this winter. Harding said he felt
sure work during the winter could be
so organized every man willing to earn
money could do so.
Three main problems need solution
Harding hinted, before this state of
affair can be assured: to reduce rail
road rates with railroad labor accept
ing a wage cut; to speed building
through settling certain wage diffi
culties and reducing prices of build
ing materials; and the Industrial strife
in the mining' Industry must end,
price of coal reduced tvnd the miners
wages in some sections cut.
