Will Lecture on Cooking "Short Cuts to Cooking" will be the theme of the lecture and cooking demonstration for members and friends of Court Cardinal O'Connell, Catholic Daughters of America, to- MRS. WILLIAM J. AHEAKN Reasonsfor Morgan Ouster From Front I have filed my letter to "Arthur E. Morgan and" the transcript of the learings, together with all exhibits marked for identification in the transcript, with the secretary of state. It is clearly the right of the con- gress to undertake at any time any tair inquiry into the administration of the Tennessee Valley Authority or its policies which the congress may deem in the public interest. But cannot in the meanwhile abdicate my constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed. I call the attention of the congress to the fact that on the evidence presented I was obliged to find that, (A) Arthur E. Morgan publicly made grave and libelous charges of dishonesty and want of integrity a.sainst his felloxv directors, and when called upon to sustain them repeat- edlv refused to do so; (B) On the face of the record charges of the other directors that Arthur E. Morgan has obstructed the work of the Tennessee Valley Au- thority were substantiated by proof, were not refuted and therefore must be accepted as true; (C) Arthur E. Morgan was con- tumacious in refusing to give the chief executive the facts, if any, upon which he based his charges of mal- feasance against his fellow directors, and in refusing to respond to ques- tions of the chief executive relating to charges of obstruction made against him by his fellow directors. Arthur E. Morgan has repeated the assertion that he will answer ques- tions only to a committee of the con- gress. Obviously, there can be no objection to hearings before such a committee. But the congress will, I am sure, realize that if any member of the executive branch of the gov- ernment, of high degree or low de- gree, is given the right by precedent to refuse to substantiate general charges against other members of the executive branch of government and to insist on disclosing specifica- tions only to a committee of the con- gress, efficient administrative man- agement of government would be de- stroyed in 'short order. FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT. The White House, March 23, 1938. WASHINGTON, March 23 The text of the opinion by Solicitor Gen- eral Robert H. Jackson, delivered in the capacity of acting attorney gen- eral, which upheld legally President Roosevelt's power to remove Arthur E. Morgan from the chairmanship of the Tennessee Valley Authority: March 18, 1938 The President The White House. My Dear Mr. President: I have the honor to comply with request for my opinion respect- ing your power to remove members of the Tennessee Valley Authority from office. As I understand it, charges of dis- honesty and want.of integrity in the conduct of their office have been made against two members and charges of obstructing the work and demoralizing the organization have been made against the other mem- ber. Also, as I understand it, the latter member is charged with openly defying your Constitutional authority to take care that the laws be faith- fully executed by refusing to answer your reasonable inquiries concerning the situation existing in the authority. I think I may state it is an unas- sailable proposition that, if any of these charges is -established, the power of removal ought to exist. Furthermore, the Tennessee Valley Authority being an executive agency, performing executive functions, and therefore in the executive branch of the government, the power of removal ought to be in the president. Under the principles announced by the supreme court in Myers v. United States, 272 U. S- 52, there would ap- pear to be no question that the pow- er of removal is in fact vested in the president. The later decision in Humphrev's executor v. United States, 295 U. S." 602, limited the application of the Myers case but did not disturb the ruling therein as applied to ex- ecutive officers. In the Myers case the court upheld the president's power to remove a postmaster notwithstanding a statu- tory provision that he should hold of- fice for four years and should be re- movable by the president only with the consent of the senate. In the Humphrey's case the court held contrary in the case of a member of the federal trade commission, but relied upon the distinguishable fact that the federal trade commission ex- ercises quasi-legislative and quasi- judicial functions and is not a part of the executive branch; and it also laid great stress upon the legislative his- tory of the federal trade commission act as indicating a purpose of the congress to secure the maximum in REVOLUTIONARY DRAMA TO BE GREEK PLAY [Sun Staff.

Free Cooking Lecture AT THE LOWELL GAS COMPANY Home Service Auditorium Corner of Shattuck and Middle Streets THURSDAY, MARCH 24, AT 2 P. M. Conducted by Gladys B. Geoffroy J LOWE VLUMA co M PANV Thousand These distinguishing factors are not present in the case of the Mennessce Valley Authority. It does not exercise quasi-legislative or quasi-judicial functions, and the legislative history of the Tennessee Valley Authority act contains no such indications of pur- nose on the part of the congress to restrict the president's ordinary pow- er to remove executive officers ap- pointed bv him. The following provisions of the Tennessee Vailev Authority act (48 stat. 58. 60. 63; are the only statu- tory provisions bearing upon the ques- "Sfc 4 'The board shall se- lect a 'treasurer and as many assist- ant treasurers as it deems proper, which treasurer and assistant treas- u'r'-TS shall give such bonds for the safe-keeping of the securities and rnonevs of the said corporation as the board" rr.av require: Provided, that anv member of said board may be re- moved "from office at any time by a concurrent resolution of the senate and the house of representatives.' "Sec. 6. 'In the appointment of offi- 1 cials and the selection of employees I for said corporation, and in the pro- motion of any such employees or offi- cials, no political test or qualification shall be permitted or given considera- tion, but all such appointments and Adopt Resolutions on Poland's Recent Ultimatum Lithuanians in Mass Meeting Here Resent Attitude of Poles; Latter's Actions Are Condemned Speakers to Be Heard at Ahepa Banquet Fired by ringing speeches denounc- ing Poland's recent ultimatum to Lithuania, a large, audience of great- er-Lowell Lithuanians who assembled in the parish hall of St." Joseph's church, Rogers street, last night, gave their approval to resolutions of Polish censure and approval of the heroism of Lithuania in bowing to the ultima- tum for the sake of humanity. Copies of the resolutions were sent to Poland, Lithuania, representatives of world powers interested in peace, the League of Nations, President Frank- lin D. Roosevelt and Secretary of State Cordell Hull. A special message was despatched to Rep. Edith Nourse Rogers, asking her assistance to have the U. S. intercede with Poland and Germany "to stop bloodshed and de- struction of a peace-loving country." In detail, the resolutions: Protested and condemned unlawful and unwar- ranted acts of Poland; protested Po- land's threat of invasion; commended Lithuania's "great sacrifice not only for her people but for the humanity of the extended thanks to the nations of the world who aided Lithuania in her fight for indepen- dence; implored peace-loving nations of the world to protect Lithuania in future unwarranted aggression. The resolutions, prepared by Atty. Joseph Donahue, were read and ap- proved after addresses by Rev. Au- gustine Petraitis, pastor of St. Casi- mir's church, Worcester, who recently made a study of conditions of Lith- uanian life under the suppression by Poland in Wilno; Atty. Anthony Mil- ler of Worcester, a former attache of the Lithuanian embassy at Wash- ington; Rev. Francis W. Strokoskas, pastor of St. Joseph's Lithuanian church and Atty. J, Joseph Hennessy of Lowell. Atty. Hennessy said the real issue in the present European struggle was to get the so-called "big giants" to indulge in Christian vir- tues instead of dictatorship-inspired aggressions. He charged Poland was being used as the instrument of Hit- ler, and said: "It is time for human- ity to stand and protest against Hit- ler and his aggressions." The protest meeting, held under the auspices of the Lithuanian Roman Catholic Federation, was in direct charge of Walter Paulauskas, presi- dent. There was music by the St. Cecilia choirs of the parish church, directed by Mrs. Stella O'Neil. Hadassah and Sisterhood Luncheon Next Tuesday Mrs. Joseph Raffaeli of Boston, will be the guest of honor and the prin- cipal speaker at the annual Hadassah luncheon to bo held by the Hadas- sah and Sisterhood of the Temple Bct.h-El next Tuesday afternoon, March 29, al; the Lowell Hebrew Community Center. Mrs. Raffaeli will promotions shall be given and made on the basis of merit and efficiency. Any members of said board who is found by the president of the United States To be guilty of a violation of this section shall be removed from of- fice by the president of the United States? The provision in section that members of the board may be re- moved by concurrent resolution of the senate and house does not, and could not have been intended to, pro- vide an exclusive means of removal. This is demonstrated by the provision in section 6 that under certain condi- tions the president shall remove. Per- haps the most that can be said of the provision in section under the circumstances, is that it was intended to provide a method of removal by the legislative branch in addition to the more cumbersome method of re- moval by impeachment. The provision in section 6 that the president shall remove members of the Tennessee Valley Authority board for violation of the inhibition against appointments and promotions for political reasons, can- construed i as an intendment with statutory force that he shall not remove them for j other causes. To authorize the presi- dent to remove a director for mere j consideration of a political endorse- j ment in appointing a minor employee, and yet to deny him the power to re- move a director for more substantial causes (perhaps amounting to mal- feasance in the highe.it degree) would be an the rules of construction do not permit an inter- pretation which would attribute to the congress the intendment of an ab- surd result. it is my opinion you have the power to remove members of the Tennessee Valley Authority from of- fice.
