MORGAN' MUM. White House officials said the con-, ference between the president and Mr. Morgan had been Just a friendly discussion of the general subject. Mr. Morgan refused to disclose what had taken place. "There is absolutely nothing I can Bay," he said. Under a running lire of questions as he passed through the door ot the executive offices, Mr. Morgan only shook his head and smiled. As he Btepped into his carriage, he said: VERY CORDIAL.

By a series of informal conferences with leaders of industry and finance, of which those with Mr. Morgan and Mr. Ford will be the first, it is the Idea to show that the president is approaching the subject with an open mind, willing to hear the views of big business first hand and outline his ow \tews in return.
