Senator Ball Pledges Support of Amendment.
On Friday, December 17th, a delegation of about 40 members of the Woman's Party met with Senator L. Heisler Ball of Delaware at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington. Mrs. Jane Hammitt, Delaware State Chairman, presided, and after briefly greeting Senator Ball introduced Florence Bayard Hilles, legislative chairman, who concisely and clearly presented the reasons why the Equal Rights Amendment should be immediately added to the United States Consititution. Senator Ball then replied, stating that he was glad to give his support to the Lucretia Mott Amendment. He said that he was ready, not only to vote for it, but to work for it as he had for the National Suffrage Amendment. In the delegation to Senator Ball there were representatives of many organizations of women who are giving active support to the Equal Rights Amendment.
On Friday, November 30th, a meeting of the Delaware Branch of the Woman's Party was held at the home of Mrs. Victor DuPont in Wilmington. Florence Bayard Hilles gave an interesting report of the National Conference held in Washington and Mrs. DuPont repeated the speech which she had made to President Coolidge on the occassion of the Woman's Party deputation to him.
