Washington, D. C. The committee met at. 10:10 a. m., pursuant to adjournment on Friday, February 23, 1940, in room 362 of the Old House Office Building, Representative Howard W. Smith, chairman, presiding.

Present: Representatives Howard W. Smith of Virginia, Arthur D. Healey of Massachusetts; Abe Murdock of Utah; Charles A. Halleck of Indiana; and Harry N. Routzohn of Ohio.

Edmund M. Toland, general counsel of the committee.

Charles Fahy, general counsel to the National Labor Relations Board.

The CHAIRMAN. The committee will be in order.

We would like to insert in the record the first thing : In connection with an incident relative to so-called lobbying activities on the part of the Board, I wrote to the Attorney General the day the question arose, and I am in receipt of a reply from him under date of February 23, and I have made a reply to that dated February 27, and I would like both letters to go into the record.

Robert H. Jackson, dated February 27, 1940, was received in evidence and marked "Exhibit No. 1086." Both communications follow):
