the Board's general orders, rules of procedure, and other material to advise companies and unions of their rights and duties under the wage stabilization and disputes programs. These publications are printed in response to the demand of employers, chambers of commerce, and others dealing in labor relations.

The attached list includes all persons on the War Labor Board pay roll engaged in informational work. If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to call upon me. Sincerely yours,

GEORGE W. TAYLOR, Chairman.

[blocks in formation]

Mr. WIGGLESWORTH. How many industry members, how many labor members, and how many public members are there? Dr. TAYLOR. Of the Board itself? Mr. WIGGLESWORTH. Yes. Dr. TAYLOR. We have four regular industry members with four alternates; we have four regular labor members and four alternates; we have eight public members, and there are substitute members who sit for the eight members of labor and industry from time to time in their absence. The number varies, depending upon the availability of the regular and alternate members.

Mr. WIGGLESWORTH. I wish you would give us a little statement for the record as to the regular and alternate members, giving their Dames and background, so to speak, as to each one.

Dr. TAYLOR. Would you care to have that for the regional boards also?

Mr. WIGGLESWORTH. I do not want to encumber the record too much.

Dr. TAYLOR. We have the same set-up in each region as we have on the national board.

Mr. KHEEL. That might involve about 300 people.

Mr. CANNON. That would be going a little further than you care to go?

Mr. WIGGLESWORTH. Yes. I just want the national picture. (The information is as follows:)
