Tn the closing session of the 15th annual convention here, the delegates also selected Columbus, O.. for the 1940 convention city. The guild overwhelmingly passed a resolution stating any discharges because of political belief "should be resisted to the fullest and be it further resolved that the Washington (guild) local be urged tn process the (Thomas G.) Buchanan grievance." ". . .
