NLRB examiner John S. Boy-er adjourned a day and a half of hearings at noon today with word he is sending the case directly to the Washington board for final evaluation. "If the case were ruled upon by a regional director," explained Boyer, with a slight grin, "it just might be that the decision would be appealed."

In morning testimony Tuesday, Francka used as witnesses machine attendants who testified their supervisors were Houston Williamson, David Beckerdite and others. Hatch identified the latter as "maintenance shift supervisors." Hatch testified that machine attendants never move from one department to another because the different departments have different kinds of machines. On cross-examination, Hatch told Francka that the maintenance shift supervisors, like Beckerdite and Williamson, report to Clayton Henshaw, superintendent of maintenance, rather than to production people. "Why," asked. Francka, "is Henshaw consulted on the hiring of machine attendants?" "He is charged with the maintenance of all machines in the plant," said Hatch.

Francka also learned from Henshaw that Henshaw signs status change forms on machine attendants when they are so created, but not on other employes. Machine attendants from various departments who testified yesterday for Francka included Benjamin L. Scott, Frank W. Pierce and Ezra Edgar Wilson. "I have more bosses than anyone else," Scott told Francka.
