Cummings Aide Pleads for
Disarmament of D. C.
Criminals.
The Milton W. (Mllsie) Henry mur
* der case was cited today by Gordor
Dean, special executive assistant tc
Attorney General Cummings, as show
ing the need for stricter control oi
firearms by the Federal Government.
Mr. Dean told members of the Fed
eral Bar Association at a luncheon in
the Harrington Hotel that a bill pro
posed by the Justice Department
would reduce the number of killings
by pistols and revolvers. Present laws
governing registration of firearms ap
ply only to machine guns, sawed-oil
> shotguns, sawed-ofT rifles and silencers.
Henry, local underworld character
Was killed In a gambling feud here sev
eral years ago. Charles Harris was
convicted of the murder. Long after
the slaying, two pistols were recovered
from a secret compartment in the
automobile used by the slayers. Mr
Dean said an investigation as to the
origin of the guns was ordered by the
Attorney General, with the result that
they were traced to a dealer, whc
identified them as part of a consign
ment of 30 such weapons sold to a
man posing as a “hardware dealer.'
Other pistols in this consignment were
found at the scene of gang killings ir
three other cities.
Under the proposed law to regulate
•ale of pistols and revolvers, the taxing
power of the Government would be
used to compel registration of ail suet
firearms. Present owners of pistols 01
revolvers would be required to pay nc
fee, but a tax of $1 would be assessed
whenever such a weapon changed
ownership. No permits would be re
» quired to own or purchase the guns.
“The United States is the most las
of all major civilized countries in the
world in control of firearms,” Mr
Dean declared. “Our homicide rat«
runs each year to almost 12.000 vic
tims—20 times the rate of England
Seventy per cent of those deaths are
due to firearms. You can go into
many States today and without any
more formality than digging into youi
jeans for the purchase price, buy a
pistol. I insist that this is a scandal."
Mr. Dean stressed that hunters,
•keet shooters, rifle clubs and “the
boy with his .22" would not be af
fected in any way by the proposed leg
islation.
Mr. Dean said nobody expects that
the crook will register his weapons,
but the law would enable the Gov
ernment to send him to jail if caught
with unregistered guns in his posses
sion.
He pointed out, also, that the law
would “prevent, by holding up to pub
lic scrutiny, the practice of large in
dustrial concerns which have in the
* past purchased large supplies of pis
tols, revolvers and tear gas guns for
use in industrial conflicts.”

case.” tn which the Supreme Court up
held the President’s power to remove
a postmaster although the law pro
vided the postmaster should hold office
for four years and could be removed
by the President only with the consent
of the Senate.
Mr. Jackson contended the high
court's unanimous ruling that Mr.
Roosevelt did not have authority to
remove William E. Humphrey, mem
ber of the Federal Trade Commission,
limited the ruling to the Myers case,
but did not disturb its effect as applied
to executive officers.
This interpretation has been dis
puted by numerous persons, who con
tend the opinion expressed in the
Humphrey case is incompatible with
the removal of Chairman Morgan.
Certain Charges Specified.
* The Trade Commission Act specified
certain charges on which the Presi
dent could remove a commissioner, but
none of these was brought against Mr.
Humphrev.
The cdurt cited this fact in re
versing the President's action, and also
stated that the President’s general
power of removal depended on the
character of duties being performed
and that holders of partly legislative
and partly judicial posts (as in the case
of the Federal Trade Commission)
could be removed only on grounds
stated in laws creating the agency.
Mr. Jackson asserted Chairman
Morgan’s duties involved no judicial
functions. The T. V. A. Act states
directors may be removed by joint res
olution of Congress, but Mf. Jackson
contended this could not be construed
as setting up an exclusive means of
removal.
In one section the act dirqpts the
President to remove a director who
considers political qualifications in ap
pointing subordinates. “To authorize
the President to remove a director for
mere consideration of a political en
dorsement in appointing a minor em
ploye, and yet to deny him the power
to remove a director for more substan
tial causes would be an absurdity—
and the rules of construction do not
permit an interpretation which would
attribute to the Congress the intend
ment of an absurd result,” Mr. Jack
son concluded.
After his request for unanimous con
sent had been blocked by Senator
Barkley, Senator Bridges asked the
majority leader if he would agree to
accept impartiality as a basis for all
future investigation.
“I’ll cross those bridges when I
come to them,” Senator Barkley re
plied. “The Senator from Nebraska
(Norris) has Indicated he would not
want to serve in a T. V. A. investiga
tion, and I have in mind introducing
a resolution for an investigation stat
ing in advance that I would not care
to serve.”
Baraiey may oner Bill.
This was the first indication Sena
tor Barkley may offer his own resolu
tion.
When Senator Bridges asked if his
resolution would be the next order of
business after disposition of the re
organization bill, the majority leader
said Senator McNary, Republican, of
Oregon had said he wanted to go
through the unanimous consent cal
endar which would require one day.
When Senator Barkley suggested
there was no disposition on the part
of "anybody from the President on
down” to interfere with an Investiga
tion, Senator Bridges pointed out
that Mr. Humphrey died before the
Supreme Court ruled his removal was
Illegal.
"That’s not necessarily a precedent,”
•aid Senator Barkley.
” R-nutor Bridges re
Senator Bridges then made it clear
that he wanted to serve on any com
mittee that Investigates T. V. A., but

President Gives Congress His Reasons for Removing
Dr. Morgan After Jackson Advises
Him on Authority.
The text of President Roosevelt’s message to Congress, stating his
reasons for removing Dr. Arthur E. Morgan as chairman and director of
the Tennessee Valley Authority, follows:
To the Congress of the United
States:
I transmit herewith for the in
formation of the Congress my
opinion setting forth the reasons
which impelled me to remove
Arthur E. Morgan, and my letter to
him removing him, as a member
and chairman of the Board of the
Tennessee Valley Authority. I
further transmit the opinion of the
Attorney General in regard to my
power to remove for cause members
of the Board of the Tennessee Val
ley Authority. I also append the
transcript of the hearings which
were had before me on March IX,
18 and 21, 1938, and which I think
merit the serious consideration of
all those interested in the T. 'V. A.
I have filed my letter to Arthur E.
Morgan and the transcript of the
hearings, together with all exhibits
marked for identification in the
transcript, with the Secretary of
State.
It is clearly the right of the
Congress to undertake at any time
any fair inquiry into the adminis
tration of the Tennessee Valley
Authority or its policies which the
Congress may deem in the public
interest. But I cannot in the
meanwhile abdicate my constitu
tional duty to take eare that the
laws be faithfully executed.
Three Separate
Findings Are Cited.
I call the attention of the Con
gress to the fact that on the evi
dence presented I was obliged to
find that
(a) Arthur E. Morgan publicly
made grave and libelous charges of
dishonesty and want of integrity
against his fellow directors, and
when called upon to sustain them
repeatedly 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
Authority were substantiated by
proof, were not refuted and there
fore 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
malfeasance against his fellow di
rectors, and in refusing to respond
to questions of the Chief Executive
relating to charges of obstruction
made against him by his fellow di
rectors.
Arthur E. Morgan has repeated
the assertion that he will answer
questions only to a committee of
the Congress. Obviously, there
can be no objection to hearing be
fore such a committee. But the
Congress will, I am sure, realise
that if any member of the execu
tive branch of the Government,
of high degree or low degree, is
given the right by precedent to re
fuse to substantiate general charges
against other members of the exec
utive branch of Government and
to insist on disclosing specifications
only to a committee of the Con
grew, efficient administrative man
agement of government would be
destroyed in short order.
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.
Removal Power
4Ought to Exist/
Jackson Advises
The letter of Acting Attorney
General Robert H. Jackson, advis
ing the President that he had legal
authority to remove Chairman
Arthur K. Morgan of the Tennessee
Valley Authority, follows:
The President.
The White House.
My dear Mr. President:
I have the honor to comply with
your request for my opinion respect
ing your power to remove members
of the Tennessee Valley Authority
from office.
As I understand it, charges of
dishonesty 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
member. Also, as I understand it,
the latter member is charged with
openly defying your constitutional
authority to take care that the laws
be faithfully executed by refusing to
answer your reasonable inquiries
concerning the situation in the
Authority.
I think I may state it is an un
I assailable 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 func
tions, 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 vs.
United States, 272 U. S. 52. there
would appear to be no question that
the power of removal is in fact
vested in the President. The later
decision in Humphrey’s Executor vs.
United States. 295 U. S. 802, lim
ited the application of the Myers
case but did not disturb the ruling
therein as applied to executive
officers.
<
Postmaster Removal
Right Upheld.
In the Myers case the court up
held the President's power to re
move a postmaster notwithstanding
a statutory provision that he should
hold office for four years and should
be removable by the President
only with the consent of the Senate.
In the Humphrey’s case the court
held the contrary in the case of a
member of the Federal Trade Com
mission, but relied upon the
distinguishable fact that the
Federal Trade Commission exer
cises quasi-legislative and quasi
judicial functions and is not a
part of the executive branch;
. and it also laid great stress upon
the legislative history of the Federal
Trade Commission Act as indicating
a purpose of the Congress to secure
'the maximum independence of the
commission from executive inter
ference and control. &
These distinguishing factors are
not present in the case of the Ten
nessee Valley Authority. It does not
exercise quasi-legislative or quasi
judicial functions, and the legisla
tive history of the Tennessee Val
ley Authority Act contains no such
indications of purpose on the part
of the Congress to restrict the Pres
ident's ordinary power to remove
executive officers appointed by him.
The following provisions of the
Tennessee Valley Authority Act (48
8tat. 58. 60. 63> are the only statu
tory provisions bearing upon the
question:
"Sec. 4. (f) The board shall se
lect a treasurer and as many assist
ant treasurers as it deems proper,
which treasurer and assistant treas
urers shall give such bonds for the
safekeeping of the securities and
moneys of the said corporation as
the board may require: Provided,
that any member of said board may
be removed from office at any time
by a concurrent resolution of the
Senate and the House of Repre
sentatives.
'Sec. 6. In the appointment of of
ficials and the selection of employes
for said corporation, and in the pro
motion of any such employes or of
ficials. no political test or qualifica
tion shall be permitted or given
consideration, but all such appoint
ments and promotions shall be
given and mkde on the basis of
merit and efficiency. Any member
of said board wljo Jjj found by .the
President of the United States to
be guilty of a violation of this sec
tion shall be removed from office by
the President of the United States.”
Senate-House Removal
Held Not Exclusive.
The provision in section 4(f)
that members of the board may be
removed by concurrent resolution
of the Senate and House does not.
and could not have been intended
to. provide an exclusive means of
removal. This is demonstrated by
the provision in section 6 that under
certain conditions the President
shall remove. Perhaps the most
that can be said of the provision in
section 4(f). under the circum
stances, 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 promo
tions for political reasons cannot
be construed as an intendment with
statutory force that he shall not
remove them for other causes. To
authorize the President -to remove
a director for mere consideration of
a political indorsement in appoint
ing a minor employe and yet to
deny him the power to remove a
director for more substantial causes
(perhaps amounting to malfeasance
in the highest degree) would be an
absurdity—and the rules of con
struction do not permit an inter
pretation which would attribute to
the Congress the intendment of an
absurd result.
It is my opinion that you have
the power to remove members of the
Tennessee Valley Authority from
office. Respectfully,
ROBERT H. JACKSON.
* _Acting Attorney General.
unbiased,” Senator Norris interposed
sarcastically.
“I’m as unbiased as the Senator
from Nebraska,” Mr. Bridges retorted.
“The difference is that I don’t want
to be the Judge in this case.” replied
Senator Norris.
Norris Criticises Morgan.
Senator Norris then criticized the
former T. V. A. chairman's attitude as
"indefensible,” and said he did not
think any one could read the tran
script of the White House hearings
without being shocked.
Entering the discussion at that
point. Senator Borah, Republican, of
Idaho said:
“We have reached a stage where we
ought to proceed rather speedily with
an investigation. If we at once pass
a resolution authorizing the President
of this body to appoint a committee,
we would have a body in which the
country would have confidence. I
don’t think we should wait on a Joint
resolution. Our duty is plain now."
At one point in his encounter with
Senator Bridges, Senator Norris de
clared in an angry voice that “if it had
not been for the objections of the
Senators from New Hampshire
(Bridges) and Utah (King) the T. V.
A. investigation would probably be fin
ished by this time.”
The elderly Senator recalled tfiat he
had backed down on his earlier de
mands for a Federal Trade Commis
sion and then a Senate inquiry,‘and
had agreed to combine his request
”’uv' »h«t of Senators Xing and
Bridges. - •
“I surrendered,” Senator Norris said
heatedly. "I gave up twice. But I’ve
gone as far as I will."
Senator Bridges interrupted to say
II !
the Nebraskan had included his own
specification for the inquiry, but left
out 2S charges made by Senators King
and Bridges.
"They were insulting,” Norris coun
tered. “Some of them were like say
ing ‘will you stop stealing from the
T. V. A.? Answer yes or no,’ or ‘will
you stop beating your wife? Answer
yee or no.' ”
At another point, Senator Norris
said "I would rather have Mr. (Wen
dell L.) Willkie on the committee to
investigate T. V. A. than the Senator
from New Hampshire.”
President Roosevelt announced the
removal of Chairman Morgan at his
press conference late yesterday.
"nat’s That,” Says Morgan.
"Well, that’s that,” Chairman Mor
gan commented when informed of his
removal at Yellow Springs, Ohio,
where he went after refuting to an
swer the President’s questions Mon
day. He told newamen he was in
Yellow Springs to "get the records,”
but declined to elaborate
At his press conference Roosevelt daid
he had “no news” at this time concern
ing appointment of a successor to serve
on the T. V. A. Board with Mr. Har
court Morgan and Mr. Lilienthal. The
T. V. A. Act specifically authorizes
the -directorate to function with only
two members. Should Chairman Mor
gan file suit to contest the legality
of his removal it was thought the
President might withhold selection of
a successor until -the courts have
passed on the issue. Others believed
James L. Ply, general counsel for
T. ▼. A., might be named to the
vacancy In a few days.
The President revealed he has re
’. ■ h
. V , ..
celved some telegrams from persons j
stating they had read in the news
papers that he was opposed to an
Investigation of T. V. A. by Congress.
Statements of that nature in the
press, Mr. Roosevelt said, had come
mostly from special writers and col
umnists. He described them as made
up out of whole cloth and entirely
devoid of truth.
Congress Gets Transcript.
The President stated he was sending
the stenographic transcript of his
T. V. A. inquiry, covering more than
100 pages, to Congress with his mes
sage.
In removing Chairman Morgan the
President brought to a head a situa
tion that was without parallel in
White House annals.
When the three directors were
called to the White House on March
11 the breach between them had
reached the point where they were
Barely on speaking terms. Dividing
originally on fundamental questions
of policy, the split soon reached the
point where Chairman Morgan was
making public charges against his
associates—charges to which they
soon repeonded.
The President’s attempt to investi
gate the matter was blocked by Dr.
Morgan’s refusal to answer questions
or submit facts in support of his
charges. He explained the matter
was of such a nature that it should
be submitted to Congress, and that
he did not feel he could get a fair
hearing before the President Even
after Dr. Harcourt Morgan and Mr.
Ulienthal had offered evidence in
support of their charges against him
the chairman persisted in his refusal
to respond.

King Says it Strengthens
Hand of Those Favoring
investigation.
,Br the Associated Press.
Some legislators have criticized the
removal of T. V. A. Chairman Arthur
E. Morgan as dictatorial, while others
approved it as necessary.
The opinion was generally expressed
that, irrespective of the President's
i inquiry and action. Congress would
authorize an investigation.
Senator King. Democrat, of Utah,
sponsor with Senator Bridges, Re
publican, of New Hampshire of a reso
lution for a joint Senate-House in
quiry, said he thought the removal of
Dr. Morgan had “strengthened the
hand” of those favoring an investiga
tion.'
Senator Barkley of Kentucky, the
Democratic leader, asserted he would
decide in the next day or so whether
to offer a new resolution calling for a
Senate-House investigation of the
T. V. A.
Dictator, Says Bridges.
Senator Bridges raid Mr. Roosevelt's
procedure was that "of the typical
dictator.” He described the incident
as another "Dreyfus case” and added:
“Is Dr. Morgan to be banished as
was Dreyfus to save the reputation
of other officials of the T. V. A.? The
President has convicted an innocent
man without a fair trial.”
Senator Norris, Independent, of Ne
braska, father of the T. V. A., said the
President "could not have done any
thing else.”
“That fellow has caused all sorts of
trouble,” he said.
The Nebraska Senator added he
thought the disputes of the T. V. A.
directors had been responsible for a
House vote today against a 12,613,000
appropriation for a T. V. A. dam at
Gilbertsville, Ky. A similar view was
expressed by Senator Barkley.
Justified, Bankhead Says.
Other comment:
Speaker Bankhead: “I think the
President’s action was thoroughly jus
tified under all the circumstances.”
Representative Fish. Republican, of
New York: "It stinks to high heaven,
like a mackerel in the moonlight.”
Representative Kvale i Farm-Labor)
of Minnesota: “I believe in the Presi
dent's judgment. Dr. Morgan deserves
the thanks of all the people for the
work he has done, but it is difficult to
conceive of a situation where the Chief
Executive is thus defied.”
Representative Mapes, Republican,
of Michigan: "It seems to me that it
is contrary to the spirit and letter of
the cT. V. A.) act.”
Representative Knutson. Republi
can. of Minnesota: "It makes it all the
more imperative that Congress inves
tigate the T. V. A.”

POLICE CONTINUE DRIVE
TO END SOLICITING HERE
16 Women Released for Lack of
Evidence, but Officers to Keep
Up Harassment.
Under orders from Inspector Ber
nard W. Thompson, chief of detectives,
the police "pick-up squad" today con
tinued operations against women so
liciting on the streets, despite the re
lease of 16 women yesterday when
vagrancy charges against them were
nolle prossed for lack of evidence in
Police Court.
"We'll put them in jail as often as
we can arrest them if they return to
the streets.” Inspector Thompson said.
He believes that constant harassment:
by police will force the women to leave
town.
Assistant Corporation Counsel John
O'Dea was convinced, after a close
study of the vagrancy act, that he
could not convict the woolen. He said
records of any of them having pre
viously solicited prostitution did not
constitute evidence under the law.
T.V. A. Chief and Predecessor
Have Few Traits in Common
By the Associated Press.
It’s still ‘'Chairman Morgan" in the
Tennessee Valley Authority, although
Harcourt A. Morgan, the new office
holder, and Arthur E. Morgan, whom
President Roosevelt ousted, are not re
lated.
Both are former college presidents
and look alike, but mutual friends de
clared the similarity ends there.
Harcourt Morgan is primarily a stu
dent of scientific agriculture; his for
mer colleague is a civil engineer.
The new chairman declined the post
of Secretary of Agriculture when Mr.
Roosevelt became President in 1933.
He then was president of the Univer
sity of Tennessee.
His full name is John Harcourt
Alexander Morgan, and he was born
70 years ago in Ontario. Canada.
An entomologist, zoologist and horti
culturist, he did his first scientific
work in Louisiana, and subsequently
joined the staff of the University of
Tennessee’s College of Agriculture.
Arthur Morgan, who will be 60 in
June, once headed his own engineering
firm in his native Ohio, and has cre
ated 75 water control projects.
He had received only a high school
education when he went West to make
his own way in the world as farm
hand, woodcutter, baker's helper and
youthful Jack-of-all-trades.
Returhing home in his early 20's, he
