318 Women Delegates at Frisco
San Francisio, Cal., June 26. With
the compilation of the full roll, show-
ng the extent ot their participation
n the national convention, Demo
cratic women felt today that they had
power ant equal responsibility with
ample reason to crow over their Re
publican sisters. Aot only has-the
.National Committee agreed to give
them equal representation, euuat
power and equal responsibility With
men, an agreement that probably will
be Ratified by the convention without
serious opposition, but the conven-
feminine representation. In contrast
to the handful of women mustered at
Chicago as delegates and alternates
at the late Republican conclave, there
will be here, according to the -National
Committee's list, 41 delegates
at large, 63 district delegates, 39 al
ternates at large and 165 district al
ternates, a total of 308. Attention is
called by the women themselves to
the character as well as the numeri
cal strength of their representation.
Many of the delegates and alternates
have attained national reputations
through social, educational or club
work, and others are fast making
themselves known in their own
