THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1940 EIPEBlp Stti Committee Bares Lack 01 Long Service By NLRB Group Fingerprint Ballot Boxes BY UllUCK CA1TOS' Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.—.That the Labor Board's 13 women review attorneys arc very good-looking may inive pleased tiio Smith investigating ecmmlttec, before which six of them testified, but it, was only incidental to the committee's main jjolni.. What the committee hnd ayalnsl them was not iheir comeliness but the fact that none of them were hoary am! grizzled veterans of the bar. Committee Counsel Edmund To- iaml gallantly refrained from asking Die six (heir ages. He was more Interested in bringing cut dial they hndu't been around so very long. Tivo of them—Margaret MeDuIf Farmer and Agger—were hired In the spring or 1938. n few (lays before they had even been admitted to the bar. Ann Land)' Wolf got her law degree In 193V and came to the board less than n year Inter. Anne Freeling got her degree in 1033 and was hired iu 1937; Margaret Bennett Porter entered practice In 1932 and came to (lie board In 1937; veteran cf tlie lot wns Fannie M. Boyls, who left, law school in 1029 and hart five years practice before entering governing service. » * * CLAIM INEXPERIENCED GIRLS DO VITAL WORK Tolanrt wants to show that the board entrusted a vital part, ol its work to young and inexperienced lawyers. A review uUcrnev passes on (lie record of a case as sent in by a trial examiner and roughly speaking, tells the board what it's nil about. The record may run to 2000 pages or more; the review attorney digests it, makes notes, nnct then reports orally to the board. Anne FreoHug was asked: "For their knowledge of .the evidence in the case other than such fragmentary reading of the record as there might he, they depend upon this oral statement, that you give them?" "That is right." Earlier she was nsked: .iHbtf.'j would, the board,.'know,- except:jor their confidenceiirC you, that you were' giving them everything, that was in this 2000-pa»c transcript?" "Well, I suppose except in a case when there had been an oral argument, the brard relies upon its review attorneys." "Yes, It had to rely upon what you told them was In the evidence did it not?" "That Is right.". Tolnnd also brought out that no record was kept of what a review attorney tcld the hoard, so that a respondent could never nnd out precisely what had been present ed. AND ONE OP THEM HAS CHANGED DIAPERS . Tolanrt insists that this gives the review attorney an awful lot ol power—too much for youthful lawyers. Clmrles Fahy, the board's general counsel, denies this hotly A review attorney, he says, dees for the board what n law clerk does for a judge. The job's important, but not as all-important as Toland suggests. Besides these women—and the rest ot the review staff-are mightv capable, he says. Incidentally, attaches of the board are pretty sore about the committee's tactics. Tlie b:ard ha' 105 review attorneys, they say, why did the committee pick out Just the women for its first \vit- iieses,- unless it wanted to put over a fast one? ... Congressman Clare Hoffman wasn't quite correct when he sneered that none of these young women "had ever changed a diaper or hung cut a washing." Mrs. Margaret Bennett.
