GREAT CONVENTION OF FLINTS
Atlantic City Gathering Will Eclipse
Anything in Order's History
There is no question but what the convention at Atlantic City, N. J., in July will be the largest ever held in the history of the A. F. G. W. U. In the eight years Assistant Secretary William Clare has been in office the greatest number of credentials issued for a convention was 210. For the coming convention he has already sent out 238 credentials, and has yet to hear from a number of locals. Nearly every local will be represented, and the delegates are all men of a character that shows a careful selection has been made by the locals, so as to have the important questions coming before the convention handled by men thoroughly conversant with trade matters. The convention has lots of hard work before it. Atlantic City will be at its best at that time, so that any spare time the delegates may have can be put to the best use as far as recreation is concerned.
