SUFFRAGE LEAGUE OPENS CONVENTION Virginia Women seeking ballot urge ratification by next General Assembly. TRINKLE HOLDS OUT HOPE State Senator Tells Delegates Legislature Will "Stand for Womanhood" in 1920. "No such burden of shame has been on the women of any other country as that requiring American women to go through grueling political campaigns before being granted the right of suffrage by their menfolk." This was the statement made last night by Mrs. Raymond Brown, of New York, fourth vice-president of the National American Woman's Suffrage Association, in addressing the members of the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia assembled in their eighth annual convention in the auditorium of the Jefferson Hotel.
