Resolutions favoring and adverse to expansion will be "broughl" before the convention. Other resolutions against the employment of women, remuneration for machinists and others who worked overtime in navy yards and arsenals, the reference to the Supreme court, for decision on constitutionality, and other matters requiring Congressional action will be brought up.
