STATEMENT OF SENATOR DAVID I. WALSH

The CHAIRMAN. The Committee on Education and Labor of the United States Senate is in session this morning, conducting a hearing on Senate bill 2926, introduced by Senator Wagner. In view of the fact that the proceedings are to be on the radio, I will make a brief statement to inform those listening in of earlier proceedings. The Democratic members of this committee are as follows: David I. Walsh, Massachusetts, chairman; Royal S. Copeland, New York; Park Trammell, Florida; Hugo L. Black, Alabama; Louis Murphy, Iowa; Elbert D. Thomas, Utah, John E. Erickson, Montana. The Republican members are: William E. Borah, Idaho, Jesse H. Metcalf, Rhode Island; Frederic C. Walcott, Connecticut; Robert M. La Follette, Jr., Wisconsin; James J. Davis, Pennsylvania.

The title of Senate bill 2926 is: To equalize the bargaining power of employers and employees, to encourage the amicable settlement of disputes between employers and employees, to create a National Labor Board, and for other purposes.

Since Wednesday, March 14, the committee has been holding daily sessions. A vast amount of evidence has been submitted by representatives of organized labor, students of industrial relations, delegations from employees, and various citizens who have been serving on the National Recovery Labor Board, which has been dealing with the labor disputes arising out of the codes adopted by the National Recovery Act.

This morning, the committee will hear James A. Emery, who is General Counsel for the National Manufacturers' Association, and who has, for years, represented the employers' side of industrial questions affecting the public interest, before committees of the Congress.
