THE DELEGATES -- ABOUT 2,000 OF THEM FROM ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY -- REPORTEDLY AGREED TO SEND TO PARLIAMENT DEPUTIES PLEDGED TO CLEAR THE WAY FOR THE SHAH'S SOCIAL REFORMS.

    PERSIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR. ALAM, AND FELLOW MINISTERS ATTENDED THE OPENING SESSION OF THE THREE-DAY CONGRESS, PRESIDED OVER BY TEHERAN'S MAYOR, MR. AHMAD NAFICI.

    (WOMEN WILL VOTE IN A GENERAL ELECTION FOR THE FIRST TIME WHEN THE NATION GO TO THE POLLS ON SEPTEMBER 17.
