These agents will be supposed to see that the employer does not follow any practice, in either employing, promoting or discharging' his employes, which has been declared by the board to be discriminatory, against AMY person on account of his race, creed, color or national ancestry. Senator Richard B. Russell has brought out some points about FEPC which haven't been publicized much. 1. Any person who contends he has been denied employment or refused a promotion because of such discrimination can file a complaint against the o\vner of the business or farm. Thereupon a representative of the board brings the employer before him for a trial. Ordinary rules of law do not apply. The man charged with discrimination is denied the right to be tried by a jury in his home community. He may be tried at any place the board determines. The accused is not assured the right of cross-examining the \vil- the job, does not have the same recourse. He's not in a "minority" roup.
